Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This is really good. I've never had a pot pie with a cornbread topping. It was quite a change and quite good. I used left over Thanksgiving turkey. I bought cauliflower and broccoli for Thanksgiving dinner and didn't use all of it so I added a bag of frozen beggies to the mix and I used fat free soup. Out of curiosity I made it as directed the first time, but the second time I made it, I added 1/2 cup drained salsa, some shredded PepperJack along with the Cheddar Cheese, plus a table spoon of taco seasoning to the turkey mixture. For the veggies I used half a can of drained and rinsed black beans and the corn cut from 2 ears of corn. Wow. both ways were great and I will absolutely be making it again...both ways.

Chicken Scampi

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
All really enjoyed the Chicken Scampi, but to be honest we made it into leftover Turkey Scampi. I put in enough turkey pieces for 4 servings and then prepared it as stated. I didn't have to cook it as long because the Turkey was already cooked. Since I didn't have to brown the chicken breasts, I also omitted the butter and fat free Cream of Chicken. I was wanting some color because it is all just a beige, so I added some chopped parsley and a small amount of green and red pepper. Just needed color. It is yummy and you'll se it on out table quite often.

Loaded Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
If there were 6 stars, I'd click on that one too. This was so good. I switched the green peas for broccoli florets and added more bacon. When it was finished cooking, I topped with some more crumbled bacon and shredded cheese. This recipe would be great to mess with because so many things taste great on a baked potato and I am sure it would be wonderful on the casserole. Good stuff, a keeper.

California Chicken Salad Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Wow, this is very good. IL just changed the cihili seasoning. I used a partial package of taco seasoning because I was out of chili powder. The whole family really enjoyed them. Yes most certainly we will have these again. I served also salsa and cour cream for those who wished. I also upped the amount of tomatoes, added sliced green onions and sliced black olives. Wow!!

Campbell's® Healthy Request® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
We nade the healthy version of Green Bean Casserole and was pleasantly surprised at how much like the original. I did use frozen beans instead of fresh and had no problem getting them done. The family wondered why I went so light on the onions so next time, I will add a few more. This is quite good. I will make this from now on instead of the original.

Warm and Creamy Bacon Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This is so yummy. I made two batches; the first one as stated and the second one with some tweeks of my own. The ingredints sounded quite good, but I'm not a fan of bacon bits. The second batch I added a few things and I thought it had gone from good to great. The second time I added crushed crisp bacon pieces and some sliced black olives. Both bowls of dip disappeared at about the same rate, so I think if you care for the flavor of bacon bits, it's a hit. I definitely will make the dip again. Cheese dip doesn't last long here and I'm always looking out for new ways to make it. I like to spread the warm cheese dip on hot rolls or a slice of hot crusty bread. Oh, yum!!

Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
We used a 9 x 13 baking dish. My only problem with this is I want to find a way to put a crust on the bottom. I think adding a bottom crust would be awesome. We kind of jazzed up the meat mixture using: Italian suasage, sliced black olives, chopped pepperoni, a good amount of Italian seasonings and more onion. It was wonderful and if you let your imagination run amuk, the possibilities are endless. I think it would taste great with a Mexican flavor. We will centainly prepare this again and do some serious thinking about alternative ingredients. Someone said it is such a great basic recipe just begging for jazzing up. Great!!

California Crescent Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I couldn't fins the Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations so we used the crescents securing the edges. These are awesome. Everyone loves a crescent and they make the sandwich so tneder and add greately to the flavor. Tp us s sandwich isn't just stuff held together by bread, but an adventure. You have to consider the bread, the filling, cheese, condiments and naything else is so very important and using the crescent is a wonderful beginning. I will certainly make these again and plan to really do some serious experimenting to use the cresecent "bread" with different fillings.

Hearty Beef Vegetable Soup in Sour Dough Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Yep, this soup certainly earned its name...Awesome. I made the soup pretty close to how Michele stated, except I wanted a more hearty flavor. I am a pushover for beef stew and beef soups. I increased the amount of onion and used one the size of a softball, up'ed the garlic to 1 TBS minced, and I, being a chicken when it comes to hot food, had to back off the horseradish and hot sauce. When I cooked the ground meat, I used turkey and tried to keep it in small chunks. For the water, I added beef broth; using water just wastes so much flavor potential, up'ed the carrots to about 4 peeled and medium diced, 1 cup rough chopped celery, I didn't do all the corn, and added 2 good sized bay leaves. I served the soup in Sour Dough Bread Bowls from San Francisco. I also had a round loaf of San Francisco Sour Dough Bread because I figured if anyone wanted crusty bread with their soup, they would have to eat their bowl and then what would we do for seconds. I am pulling out recipes for the chilly weather coming up and this one is certainly going to be in the repertoire. The soup is quite good and inexpensive to make which always helps. Next time I make the soup I am going to try adding some extra herbs. Depending on how you are going to serve the soup, sometimes you want a thick soup and sometimes you want a soup with more liquid. Just add more water or broth for a less thick soup. Spmetimes you just want more broth for dunking your crusty bread. Very enjoyable.

Donnasue's Cornbread Mustard Green Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
Don't bother me, I'm eatin'. Really, I have a big piece of Donnasue's casserole right here and it's awesome. I am a hopeless lover of cornbread which is what caught my eye. I may have been born in California, but to Southern parents. I'm a Southerner at heart. When I was a kid mama and daddy would pick a bunch of salad fixin's from the garden. Then we'd each chop up our own salad of raw mustard greens, lettuce, green onions, radishes and tomatoes and then we topped it off with hot bacon drippings dressing. I knew, mixing cornbread and mustard greens, this had to be awesome, and it didn't fail to make me smile. Did yourself proud, Donnasue. I'm goin' after more Cornbread Casserole, Don't bother me...

Green Bean Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
This is nice. Made me think of when I was a kid and my mom made creamed potatoes with green beans. A great dish and a trip down memory lane all in one great recipe. About half way through the baking time I added a crunchy topping of Grated Parmesan Cheese mixed with Panko bread crumbs to add another texture and 'cause I like toasted bread crumbs baked on casseroles. I will definitely add this one to my "Tried & True" list.

BC Cherry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I love cherry season. I used bing cherries and the jam was so good. I cut the cherries in half, removed the seeds then cut the halves again. I wanted the cherry pieces large enough to see. Oh, by the way, do as I didn't and wear gloves to pit the cherries, I do believe my finges will forever be stained with the cherries, but it's cherries, and well worth the red fingers. I have a large canning funnel which I use when putting the food into jars to help keep the rims of the jars clean, which is very important, as Pepper stated. The jam was excellent; the flavor is very definitely cherry and the color is beautiful.

Moist Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
The dish was delightful. Everyone liked it, even my picky eaters. I knew it was going to be good with "Lemon" in the title. I did need to change a couple of things; I used an onion about tennis ball size, used dill weed in place of the dill seed, and I used my own blend of curry powder. I doubled the sauce recipe so we would have plenty to use in basting during grilling. Because of time restraints, I let the chicken marinate over night. The chicken had a wonderful flavor, moist, and garnered several OH's and AH's. The flavor of the lemon was definitely there but wasn't at all overpowering. Will I be making Moist Lemon Chicken again? You bet'cha' and as Nancy suggested, I am going to try the sauce with fish. The light lemon flavor would go wonderfully with fish.

Simmered Cranberry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This was so good. I am a push-over for cranberries and this recipe didn't fail to bring some serious smiles, well-dones, and pats-on-the-back. I browned the pork chops, without a lid, long enough to achieve a good color and have plenty of yummies on the bottom of the skillet. Using the water and a 1/2 cup of whole berry cranberry sauce, I deglazed the skillet and when all the goodies were loose from the bottom of the skillet I added the remaining ingrediences. I returned the pork chops to the skillet and added enough liquid to almost come to the top of the pork chops. I simmered them on Low/Med-Low until they were done having to add liquid twice. The pork chops were savory and sweet, but not too sweet, I will certainly be making these again. For those of you who enjoy tweeking recipes, this has so much potential. My thoughts were along the lines of adding orange zest and toasted pecans to the cranberry sauce. Something else I was thinking about was, using a mixture of water and cranberry juice instead of just water.

Parmesan Cheese Twists

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Very good. I made one batch as the recipe stated. For the second batch instead of using the cheese, I used cinnamon and sugar. Did everything else the same. Wow, great either way.
