Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This recipe has a fantastic flavor. It is just right. Both my husband and I loved it. I made this for New Year's Day and like a previous reviewer, prepared only 5 servings, but had a lot left over, and we ate several meals on it. I substituted ground turkey breast for the ground beef and it tasted great. My husband did not even know I made the substitution. I did not add all tasbasco sauce as I felt it was spicy enough as it was, and I like fairly spicy food. This will be my chili recipe going forward.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
My sister recommended I try this recipe and I'm glad she did. It has a wonderful flavor, and it is easy. It is a great and easy soup/stew for cold days. UPDATE: I have now made this several times and it is great every time. I use Bill Echols Taco Seasoning I recipe from this site instead of the packaged seasoning or sometimes I use a can of enchilada sauce instead of the tomato sauce and seasonings.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. It was moist with just the right amount of sweetness. Not too sweet. I will make it again.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This is one of our family favorites. We love balsamic vinegar so we love this one. It is one of my go-to weeknight recipes when I don't know what to make. It is delicious, healthy, and so quick and easy to make. I usually use canned Italian Style diced tomatoes and skip the other seasoning when I am in a hurry. Also I use garlic powder instead of garlic salt to reduce the salt. Thanks for this recipe.

California Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This is a great flavorful recipe. My husband and I both love it. I have made it several times now. I use fresh basil and a salt-free homemade cajun seasoning from Scotdog from this site. I used olive oil cooking spray instead of the olive oil. I sprinkled the cajun seasoning on the chicken and cooked the chicken in the skillet. Once cooked I removed the chicken and deglazed the pan with a little white wine and added the garlic and tomatoes. The feta cheese makes this dish. It is delicous with the cajun seasoning and the tomatoes and basil. Thanks for a great recipe.

Mom's Turkey Sausage Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Great recipe! I used 1-1/4 lb extra lean ground turkey breast and kept the same seasonings, except reduced the salt in half. It tasted fantastic! I have used it as breakfast sausage in the morning as well as in a lasagne recipe that my husband loved. UPDATE: I have made this several times now and love the taste and how easy it is to fix. I have used it in breakfast casseroles and in any recipe that uses sausage. It works great.

Super Simple Oven Barbequed Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
This was excellent. I will definitely make it again. The only changes I made was to sprinkle on a little paprika in addition to the other spices. I also baked it for just over an hour for 3 large chicken breasts and it came out perfectly. It was so moist, tender, and flavorful I didn't think any other BBQ sauce was necessary.

Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Whew! That's one spicy tomato sauce!! And I only used 1 TSP of crushed red pepper and no hot sauce since I was out. My husband and I love spicy foods but I'm glad I reduced the red pepper. Otherwise, it was very good. I made a few substitutions to use what I had on hand but no drastic changes. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and tomato sauce instead of tomato puree, and I used thin pork chops instead of thick pork chops. Overall, the dish had a great flavor but would be very spicy as written. However, it is an easy, spicy, healthy, quick one-dish meal that is only 4 weight watchers points. Next time I will cut back on the crushed red pepper and it will be a 5-star recipe!

Kickin' Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions and Spicy Sweet Mayo

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
Hi everyone. This is my recipe. I wanted to let you know that there will be extra mayo left over that can be used on other sandwiches or other items. About a 1/3 of it would be needed for the burgers. I use Hellman’s low fat mayo that has a great flavor and only 15 calories per serving to cut down on the fat and calories. Also, I used a Dijon course grain mustard and 99% extra lean ground turkey, with Stubbs Original BBQ sauce (because it contains less sugar) but you could also use a mesquite flavored BBQ sauce if you don’t have the dry seasoning or try one of the great substitutions other reviewers used. In addition, I used a Vidalia onion and Montreal Steak Seasoning with McCormick’s Mesquite Grill Seasoning. This is not a packet but in a jar like other spices. AR had changed that ingredient to a packet. If you have never tried a turkey burger, this is the one to try! If you can’t bring yourself to try turkey, make it with ground beef. I made this the other night and switched it up with 93% lean ground beef which is as lean as regular ground turkey and used KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. It was delicious also. I hope your family enjoys these burgers as much as mine.

Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This is so easy and delicious. Tastes just like the soup mix but without all the salt. I used no sodium beef bouillon and left out the salt. It tasted great.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
My husband and I thought this was delicious. I used a little olive oil instead of butter. I did not have any wine, so I used about 1/2 cup chicken broth with a little red wine vinegar. Also, I left out the salt as it was not needed since I used the chicken broth.

Healthy Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Because of these muffins my husband actually ate breakfast because he normally skips it. However, he liked these muffins. They had a good flavor and I would make them again.

Spicy Indian (Gujarati) Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
My husband and I really liked these. They had a good flavor and were a little spicy. I used maybe 2 TBL olive oil and 1 tsp horseradish instead of the black mustard seed as per other reviews. I forgot the sugar and didn't miss it. The green beans had a great flavor without it.
