E-Z Tomato Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
This definitely was "E-Z" and gives toast and tomatoes a nice Italian twist! This is very easy to adjust to suite your personal tastes. I opted out of the butter and drizzled a little olive oil on the bread. I also added fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. Next time I might use fresh mozzarella and a splash of balsamic vinegar - delish!

Sister Schubert's® Herb Garlic and Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Delicious - not to mention a great way to perk up dinner rolls! And, while these rolls are great all by themselves the addition of garlic, herbs, and Parmesan cheese really take these over the top. These are a great accompaniment to soups and salads!

Ice Cream Sandwich with Strawberries

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
This definitely is an easy, yet impressive little dessert that's takes very little effort. It's perfect when you don't have a lot to time but still want an after dinner treat. The combination of almonds, berries and chocolate paired nicely. I used low-fat ice cream sandwiches and added a little whipped cream over top - YUMMY!

Tomato Mozzarella Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Tomato and basil are a classic combination and when paired with fresh mozzarella you have something so simple and so delicious you could make a meal out of this all by itself! The addition of good quality balsamic vinegar gives it that little added "pizzaz"- perfect served with Italian bread and a nice wine!

Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
So simple and yet so delicious! This was quick and easy to put together for a weeknight meal - yet it tastes like you slaved for hours. You'd never suspect that the sausage was low fat because it's full of flavor. All I added was a garden salad and warm crusty bread - perfect with a glass of wine to complete this meal!

Creamy Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I love the concept of pairing chicken with a creamy lemon sauce. And while this is quick and easy saving on time and effort in the kitchen due to the pre-made sauce it just doesn't meet expectations in the flavor department. I followed the recipe exactly, but found that seasoning the flour is a must so I added a little garlic powder along with the salt and pepper. I also used olive oil vs. veg. oil to pan fry the chicken. The sauce leaves something to be desired and is thin and watery vs. thick and creamy. I ended up adding a little cornstarch to thicken it, but in the end it was bland in spite of the additional parsley and lemon zest. Even with some tweaking I don't think I would make this again....

Tuna Salad Crescents

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Tuna melts are a classic and this was a nice take on them. I used reduced-fat crescents, light cheddar cheese and "Zesty Tuna Salad" from this site which already had pickle relish in the recipe. The only other thing I added was chopped tomato because what's a tuna melt without tomatoes... This was easy to put together and made for a nice lunch. No matter what tuna salad you choose to use it's bound to be tasty!

Italian Peas

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Great recipe for a side dish with a nice Italian twist! Plus, it's a great way to perk up plain 'ol peas. Very easy to throw together and has a wonderful flavor. This would be a nice accompaniment to any main dish.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Wow - this is fabubous and I swear you could put just about anything rolled up inside a chicken breast and it's bound to be good. Plus the combination of three different cheese was an indication to me that this was going to be tasty. I did make a couple of changes... First I pounded my chicken breasts down thin. Second I used light shredded cheddar cheese that I combined with softened light cream cheese until it was blended. to stuff the chicken and rolled the chicken securing with toothpicks. I dipped the chicken in egg and milk then the bread crumb mixture to form a light coating. I then drizzled it with the melted butter mixture and baked it according to the directions. The result was a very moist and flavorful chicken bursting with a delicious cheese filled center!

Peppered Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Tasty and tangy with a nice kick from the red pepper flakes! I used steam in bag green beans to save on time and sauteed the red pepper and onion in olive oil with a little garlic, mixed all the veggies together and then dressing it with the vinegar. Overall, a very colorful and flavorful side dish.

Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Mashed potatoes are comfort food at it's best, but add cheese and sour cream and you have something rich and delicious! Not something I'd make everyday mind you, but once in a while you have to splurge. The addition of the dill weed was interesting and proved to be a nice touch. Not sure I'd ever use this as a dip for potato chips as in the description, but delicious none the less.

Cheese-Stuffed Giant Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
Meatloaf is a classic dish that's perfect for a hearty weeknight meal. And, while this was a very simple version which saves on time and effort in the kitchen due to the pre-made sauce it definitely falls short of expectations in taste. I followed the recipe exactly, but found the meat mixture to be way too soft to form. I ended up adding additional panko bread crumbs along with some garlic, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese. I formed these into four mini meat loaves vs. trying to stuff into muffin pans which worked out better for me. Due to the size I baked this at 400 for 30-35 minutes in a glass baking dish. I topped with the sauce vs. adding later. I also spinkled with some additional grated Parmesan cheese over top and served it with garlic mashed potatoes and peas. Overall, not bad for an Italian-style version of meatloaf but without some tweaking I don't think I would make this again....

Easy Breakfast Sausage Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Delicious and definitely "Easy" for a hearty hand-held breakfast! And while I wouldn't make these everyday, they're a nice treat once in a while - especially on the weekend. I used country sausage vs. hot sausage and sauteed the onions vs. having it raw. I did opt out of the pickles and jalepeno slices. And, I used slices of cheddar vs. pepperjack as that's what I had on hand. This makes a lot so I definitely have some leftover sandwiches to send with my husband for work. This is a very versatile recipe in that you can customize it to suite your tastes. Overall, perfect with a nice glass of OJ!

All-American Burger Dog

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
Great recipe for a classic burger that just happens to be shaped like a hot dog! I couldn't figure out what to make for dinner tonight (didn't thaw anything) so we went out and got a pound of hamburger and fired up the grill. I used hoagie style rolls as I wasn't able to find extra-long hot dog buns. These were great and really hit the spot. We poured a little beer over these while they were cooking (an old trick from my Dad) added some pickles and a side of kettle cooked chips as well as a couple of beers which were a lot easier to drink with the "free hand" - Thanks Chef John for another great recipe!

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
Wow! This stuff is so good. It's amazing how two simple ingredients that you have around the kitchen can come together for something that tastes so delicious! You definitely have to use REAL butter, (not margarine) that's softened and you'll get great results. I used this on to top cornbread, but I can definitely see a lot of uses for this stuff.... Thanks for a great recipe!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
Excellent recipe for classic banana bread! It's definitely moist and delicious - which is what you'd expect from banana bread. I cut the sugar back to one cup and used half white and half brown. I also subbed fat free greek yogurt for the sour cream and added 1 tsp. of cinnamon. I baked it in a 9x5 glass baking dish at 350 for 50 minutes and topped it with a bit of turbinado sugar for some a little added "crunch". Perfect served warm with butter!

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Easy, moist, and delicious - what more could you ask for from a simple and straightforward recipe for cornbread? I lightened it up a bit by using reduced fat sour cream and Land O Lakes light butter. I also subbed reduced fat buttermilk for regular milk. This bakes up nice and brown in no time at all. Perfect accompaniment to chili, pulled pork, or whaterver else you can think of... The leftovers are great with butter and jam too!

Perfect Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
This definitely is a great recipe for "Perfect Pulled Pork"! And just as stated the pork is "fall-apart tender and mouthwateringly moist". I used apple cider vinegar vs. water and cooked it low and slow. When it was done, I added a little liquid smoke. This is so easy to prepare and delicious topped with your favorite bbq sauce and served with all the fixin's: coleslaw, cornbread, and baked beans - YUM!

This and That BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Not bad for a quick BBQ sauce... I cut the recipe in half and used 2 Tbsp. of browning sauce and 2 Tbsp. of molasses. It is definitely tangy so I added a little more brown sugar. Since I felt it needed a little "something", I also added a little liquid smoke along with some onion and garlic powders.
