This is the best way I found to get my kids to eat zucchini! As with all zucchini bread recipes, it takes longer than you want to put it together, but once you do, it's worth it! Everyone I've shared these with loves them!

Very good and easy -- uses ingredients that are usually on hand.

I made this for my in-laws, and we all loved it! I added an extra can of beans, used no-fat chicken broth, and left out the cheese, and it was still great. I simmered it for 45 minutes instead of 15, and it married the flavors really well.

I like to add other leftovers to this soup, such as left over spinach, sweet and white potatoes, celery, carrots, onion, parsnip, peas, corn, whatever is around. Barley or orzo also goes well in the soup. Sometimes I will process half of the cooked soup to thicken it.

I added three different kinds of beans to this soup, as well as a can of seasoned diced tomatoes and a can of corn. We loved it -- I'm sure I'll make this a lot this winter.

This was good, but it takes a lot of time, and the seasonings were a little off to my taste. I adjusted, and it had a very fresh taste, but it was quite time consuming.

Blue Cheese Beef Tenderloin

Fantastic recipe! I added herbs d'provence and some extra garlic to the marinade and increased the time to 1 hour. The bleu cheese sauce is very nice, and those who don't care for it can simply leave it off if you serve the sauce on the side instead of serving it over the beef. A tasty and elegant party dish!

Terrific recipe -- the best we ever had! For those who found the sauce too runny, I suggest that you are not cooking the roux long enough to allow it to thicken. I doubled the recipe, and used 2/3 sharp cheddar and 1/3 asiago cheese, and it was fabulous! It's worth the work, and I'll probably be making it for every family dinner from now until forever!

I made this for Thanksgiving, and it was a big hit -- even with the kids! The apples were a great addition. Per another reviewer's suggestion, I added minced ginger and a little Grand Marnier, and I highly recommend it. I'll be making this again for Christmas thanks to multiple requests!

Great recipe for the slow cooker! Something different! I served this over egg noodles, and even the kids were happy!

Chili I
Rating: Unrated
DRFHRLAW's rating

The most awesome chili I have ever eaten, let alone made! I did adjust the seasonings a bit to fit my family's taste. I found the longer you simmer it, the thicker it gets, so don't worry about how thin it looks initially. Fabulously complex blend of flavors. I'll never make chili from an envelope again! Thanks, Bob, and reviewers who offered comments and modifications! I'll be making this a lot this winter!

I used butter, and added parsley, thyme and oregano to the mix. These are the best grilled shrimp ever! My husband, who hasn't enjoyed shrimp in 20 years, loved them! A serious winner!
