"I made these last night - - only half a recipe (there are only two of us). They''re quite tasty! We each ate two "burgers" and were looking for more.I didn''t have Fiber One cereal, and substituted panko bread crumbs instead - - turned out great.Next time I''ll season them a little bit more (double everything up), but these "deconstructed red beans and rice" cakes are darn good!"

"A great-tasting meal, hearty and comforting. It goes together quickly and is very forgiving on cooking times (late for dinner? No problem!).You can make numerous substitutions/additions and it still turns out well.Highly recommended."

"Really excellent and truly simple to prepare. I was worried that garlic salt as the only seasoning would yield a bland dish. I was wrong!A dash of hot sauce (Frank''s, Cholula, or Tabasco) is just the right touch to wake this dinner up."

"I made this dish last night. It was super easy and very, very tasty. A few lemon wedges squeezed over the filets really brought it to life. I''ll definitely make it again!I served it with a side of roasted garlic couscous to which I added about a cup of a frozen southwestern style blend of corn, black beans, red bell peppers and onions.It was a huge hit, everyone loved it."

"This was the first time I''d tried any "Suddenly Salad" products. I couldn''t find the suggested Caesar salad and opted for "Classic" instead.Two observations: the Suddenly Salad Classic dressing is unbelievably salty (920mg). I used only about half of it - - and it was still pretty salty.Tossing the broccoli in as raw florets does provide some crunch ... perhaps a bit too much. If I prepare this again I might toss the broccoli in the pasta water for the last 2-3 minutes of the boil, just to blanch it a bit.It went over well, despite my misgivings, and the remainder went to work for lunch today."

Super easy to prepare and as delicious as any I''ve ever had.I served it over an improvised pasta primavera: penne pasta, frozen green peas, chopped fresh parsley and basil, grated parmesan cheese, and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.Be sure to serve the cooking juices! It''s delightful.

Skillet Beef and Vegetable Stew
Skillet Beef and Vegetable Stew
Rating:
A great comfort food. Dead easy to prepare and lovely and delicious on the table.I read other reviews and agree completely that as directed it''s simply too thin to be a stew, at least in my book. Knowing this ahead of time, I simply started it a couple of hours ahead and let it simmer and reduce until a stew consistency was obtained.Not only did the extra simmer time thicken it up, but it also concentrated the flavors into a rich and hearty stew.I served it as is, with a chewy sourdough bread for sopping up every last drop.If you can afford the extra time for simmering you will not be disappointed.

This is really good, and as simple as can be to prepare.Lacking Mexicorn I used plain corn and added a can of diced green chilies to add some "oomph."I served it with heated corn tortillas and salsa on the side. It simply disappeared! I will definitely make it again.

Hot and Spicy Greens

Following the idea in an earlier review I added cubed extra firm tofu to the greens and served it atop Soba (buckwheat) noodles.It was a big hit - - no leftovers at all.Next time I believe I''ll increase the amount of ginger (we like it spicy).I served it as a main dish, but without the tofu/noodles it would be an excellent side dish with nearly any cuisine.

Pasta and Bean Skillet

Rating:
Definitely a winner in this household - - and definitely to be prepared again (and again).Following the "Special Touch" idea, I plated it in shallow bowls rimmed with tortilla chips, with salsa and sour cream on the side.I did also use a hot variety of salsa and that put a nice (but not too hot) kick in the dish.Highly recommended.
