Cream of Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
So delicious! Simple, easy and so, so mushroomy! I used a mix of cremini and white button mushrooms and it made a lot, which is what I wanted to have for lunches all week. It was a bot thinner than I expected, but that's easily fixed with less broth.

Asian Style Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
My husband, who as a rule, doesn't care for ginger, loved this. I adore ginger, but wasn't crazy about the flavor combination! It was easy and unusual, though, and I'll make it again just because my husband enjoyed it so much. Served it with roasted asparagus topped with toasted sesame seeds and jasmine rice.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
My college freshman daughter was home for the weekend and I made this for her because she loves it at school. It was simple, quick, and very tasty. I didn't change a thing and she ate it a couple of times and said it was better than what she gets at school.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
This was so, so, so good! I used shallots instead of onion. After reading reviews, I saw that some people didn't like the lemon and sour cream, so I added just a touch to a small serving before I added it to the whole batch. I'm glad I did, because I very much preferred it without them. I'm not sure if I messed with the authenticity, but if I'd made it with the lemon and sour cream, I'd never make it again, so that's a good thing! I'm craving it right now...

Cinnamon Coffee Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I used very strong coffee instead of instant, and no milk. It holds up beautifully and was a lovely presentation, but all I could taste was the cinnamon. Still, it works very nicely with Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes from this site.

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
Only made the cupcakes...the icing didn't appeal to me. They were SO SIMPLE! Took about ten minutes from start to having them in the oven. I filled my liners 3/4 full and got 24 very nicely sized cupcakes. Iced them with cinnamon buttercream and they made my husband very happy! His first comment when he walked in the door this evening was, "Those look really nice!"

Super Simple Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Quick, easy, tasty. These will work well for easy breakfasts for my husband...he can just zap them in the microwave and add butter and jelly. I hope others give them a try now too.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Fairly easy...I don't find frozen spinach easier than fresh...don't like all the squeezing to get rid of excess water. The rest is very easy. I added some nutmeg. The flavor is fine, but not outstanding.

Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Some will disagree with me for giving five stars to a recipe that I changed, but I did not change the integrity of the dish. Instead of rotisserie chicken, I cooked my own boneless, skinless chicken breasts wrapped in foil in the oven with rotisserie seasoning. I shredded those and proceeded with the recipe. I also added some jarred salsa in place of part of the tomato sauce. These were simple and delicious and make a quick weeknight meal. I served them with cole slaw; we'll be adding them to our regular rotation.

Good for You! Granola

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
Since I discovered how great granola is made with olive oil, my family has become addicted to it. I make 3-4 batches on the weekends and send them to my college-age kids and my husband often eats it for breakfast. It's good sprinkled on Carbmaster yogurt for me. I've used various kinds of dried fruits and sometimes change up the flavor, adding cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Easy and healthy, what could be better?

Candy Corn Bark

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
I don't care for this kind of thing, but I made it for a school pot-luck luncheon today. Before the first bell rang at 7:45 this morning, I had two teachers in my classroom begging for the recipe...I made it exactly as written, except I topped half with the candy corn and sprinkles and the other half with milk chocolate M&Ms and increased the raisins (I used golden) by quite a bit. Simple, simple, simple. Not something to eat every day, but a for an easy fall/Halloween treat, you can't beat this.

Kickin' Crunchy Oven "Fried" Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
Quick and easy! Reminded me of making Shake-n-Bake back in the day. (and I helped!) the seasonings were uncomplicated, but I didn't find it particularly spicy. I did appreciate the review from CC about how many cups of cornflakes make 3/4 of a cup crushed, because my grocery store hasn't carried cornflake crumbs in years. I served this with Crash Hot potatoes and roasted broccoli and *really* appreciated that it had a high cooking temp...that way I could cook everything at the same temp.

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
I would have loved to give these five stars, but the icing portion of the recipe keeps that from happening. The cupcakes themselves are delicious...dense, but not heavy; lightly spiced,not overbearing. I don't like cooked carrots at all, but when they're in cake, it's a whole different story! The icing, while not a disaster, makes way too much for the amount of cupcakes and is wasteful. I now have a big container of frosting left over and nothing to use it on unless I make more cupcakes. Also, there was not a hint of white chocolate, even though I *doubled* the amount after adding the called-for amount...STILL not a bit of white chocolate flavor. This is NOT a white chocolate frosting recipe, it's a cream cheese frosting recipe. If you go in expecting that, you'll be good to go. If you really want a white chocolate frosting, look somewhere else, but definitely give the cupcakes a try!

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
I don't typically bake much, but decided to try a quick bread to have with turkey chili. This was super easy and was mixed and in the oven in less than 10 minutes. Definitely a quick bread...I used Shiner Bock beer and it was pretty tasty right out of the oven and worked well with the chili. The leftovers aren't that great and I found it hard to slice nice, uniform slices.

Chicken Gruyere with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Completely in love with this dish!! I cut it down to two servings. Butterflied two breasts, so they were quite thin. I'll admit that I did not measure anything, but I used all of the ingredients. I think an addition of garlic to the onion/mushroom mixture would be advisable, but it was good as is. My chicken didn't need anywhere *near* 40 minutes in the oven...it was practically done after the browning, so I cooked it for about 10 minutes, added the Gruyere (one of my favorite cheeses and not nearly expensive where I live as some others have mentioned) and cooked it for about four more minutes, until the cheese was melted. Served with asparagus and a salad, it was a lovely Sunday evening supper and I have two pieces left for lunch. Do give this a try...even if you pay $10 for the cheese, it's worth it.

Reuben Rollups

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I didn't think this tasted like a real Reuben, but didn't expectit to. I only made one wrap, using a low-carb green onion tortilla. I used Thousand Island dressing instead of Russian, and cut it back to about two teaspoons. I used much less slaw as well...there was no way all that was going to fit in one wrap! I thought it was tasty and will make a great lunch wrap.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This was the first time I've ever cooked pork ribs. I wasn't expecting to like it much at all...not a big pork fan, but my husband loves pulled pork, so I gave it a try. It gets five stars for simplicity alone...it fell off the bone after cooking in the broth. I didn't cook it in the oven after shredding...that seemed like a totally unnecessary step. I just put it back in the crock pot, added the sauce and let it cook until we were ready to eat. Served it on buns with cole slaw, which it definitely needed to cut the sweet/fat of the pork and sauce.

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
I made this on the spur of the moment tonight when my original planned dish didn't sound good. It was simple...extremely so. I used all the ingredients, but pounded the breasts very thin and cut them into smaller pieces. I didn't return the chicken to the pan as I reduced the sauce and just poured it over the chicken at the end. I also topped itnwith capers, because I think picatta without capers is a sad thing. I served it with angel hair pasta and steamed spinach. Thanks for a simple weeknight meal.

Restaurant-Style Cheesy Poblano Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I really loved the flavor of this soup. I think the name is misleading because the cheese is simply a garnish, not a main ingredient. Of course, that was instantly evident from reading the recipe and I decided to go ahead. I liked the corn tortillas as the thickening agent and I decided to roast my poblano to add a depth of flavor. Based on most of the reviews, I added more chicken stock, but otherwise kept the ingredient amounts the same. This was made to go with chicken fajitas, so I didn't add the chicken either. I will definitely make this again.
