Sweet Basil Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2015
I know I'm cheating by rating my own recipe but it is the only way I can add some comments about how I have changed this up since I originally posted it. Like many of the reviewers, I always add some sugar to this. I also add a splash of balsamic vinegar or red wine (or both!). I usually omit the onions unless I adding meat to it, but that is because my daughter is a purist and can find a microscopic piece of onion in her food. :) If you have fresh basil available, I absolutely recommend using that instead of dried. I take advantage of the summer basil and fresh tomatoes by making huge batches of this sauce each year and canning it for use throughout the year. The variations I just described are what go into the jar. I then add whatever we are in the mood for when I heat it up (roasted red peppers, meat, onion, etc). As a starter, I still think the recipe as posted is a great starter recipe. The great thing with this kind of sauce is that you can get creative and find new ways to dress it up. Enjoy!

Cabbage Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2014
This has become our go-to sloppy joe recipe. I have made it with ground turkey and ground beef. We started off making it as is (and it was delicious), but then it inspired me to add more veggies. Now, I get whatever I have in my fridge (carrots, celery, onion, peppers, spinach, etc) and add it to the existing recipe. It makes a very healthy meal!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2014
This sauce is great. It is made with ingredients I always have on hand. It is way better than pre-made stuff at the store. I will never go back!

Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
I have to admit that I didn't follow the recipe exactly (didn't bother much with the right quantities as usual). I wanted something more Irish than regular mashed potatoes to go with the Irish Stout Stew that I made for St. Patty's Day. This is quite possibly the most delicious version of mashed potatoes that I have ever had. YUM!!
