Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
I was trying to find something new for low-calorie lunches for work and this fit the bill perfectly! After reading the reviews of how salty the recipe can get with a packet of taco seasoning (and trying to keep to a low sodium diet), I omitted the packet and used McCormicks Salt-Free Southwest Seasoning. I halved the recipe and only used about 2 Tbls. of salsa (since that is loaded with sodium), and threw in a whole can of low sodium petite diced tomatoes. I also had some red onion and added about 1/4 cup of those. Those were the only changes I made and it was so delicious. Served on a whole wheat tortilla with light sour cream and low-fat cheddar cheese made for yummy lunches that were the talk of the office!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
I have been searching for a recipe like this for years after falling in love with the dressing at a favorite Greek restaurant back East. I made it as written the first time and it was really good, but then made some slight changes to make it my own. First off, what home cook makes 4 quarts of dressing at a time?! I scaled it down to 10 servings and got enough dressing for 4 large entree salads. For the vinegar, I used a combination of white wine and white balsamic vinegars, plus some fresh lemon juice to make it almost equal parts oil and vinegar. The last addition was some fresh, smashed garlic. I put it all in a medium sized canning jar and shook it up, then left it in the refrigerator overnight and shook it like crazy again the next day! I also use this dressing to marinate tomatoes for "Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich", found on this website.

Broccoli Rice Casserole II

Reviewed: May 12, 2013
This is a really great recipe that you can easily customize to suit your own taste. Although, I do agree with some of the other reviewers when they say that it is a little bland as is, and really REALLY creamy! I ended up using half Velveeta and half sharp cheddar for that extra tangy-ness, about 1 tsp. salt, and using almost double the amount of rice. Since it was just adults eating this, I added a lot of fresh ground pepper. Next time I may try adding some salsa or some diced tomatoes. It makes a lot, but you will be surprised how quickly it is gone!

Parmesan Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I was so pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I thought it was going to be your standard "herbed butter", but it was so much better! The addition of parmesan cheese (I used freshly grated) really punches up the flavor. I did tweak it slightly, based on what I had on hand. I didn't have any rosemary or garlic salt, so I substituted oregano and just used a total of 1 1/2 Tbls. garlic powder. Oh, and I didn't melt the butter, I just softened it and mixed everything in with a fork. This is now my new "go to" toasted garlic bread recipe!!

Chocolate Butter-Creme Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
This is a really quick and easy frosting. Don't panic if the powdered sugar/butter mixture doesn't get light and fluffy right away. It takes a couple of minutes to come together. It is not a super chocolaty frosting, it has a lighter flavor which goes well with dark chocolate cake or cupcakes. If you want a stronger chocolate taste, you could add more or darker chocolate.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
This is such a great recipe, in the respect that it is so easy to customize. Make it first, as written and then play with it going forward. Whether you use cream of broccoli or cream of chicken soup, whether you use fresh or frozen broccoli, milk instead of sour cream...it is still really good. The most important thing to do with this is to season all of your layers with what ever spices your family likes. It is a little bland as written, but I think that is on purpose, because you can use your spice rack accordingly. I seasoned with lemon pepper, seasoned salt (from Penzey's), and a little cajun spice. Also, I used a really good sharp cheddar and ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs.

Standard Henning Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
This is, by far, the best recipe for chili that I have found. You should definately take the time to let it simmer the full 1 1/2 hours, if not 2 hours, as it will thicken up. I only use 1/2 of the tomoato juice and no kidney beans (I use chili beans that I add the last 20 minutes of cooking time), and it turns out perfectly every time. This is the only recipe for chili that you will need!

Quick Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
I LOVED this recipe! I have tried 2 other recipes for Chicken Piccata in the last month that were much more difficult and took over an hour to prepare, so I was looking for something simpler. This recipe had fewer steps and took 20 minutes to throw together. I usually pound out my chicken when I get it home from the grocery store and Food Save it, so I had chicken ready to go. The only changes I made were to season the dredging flour (salt, pepper & dried lemon peel) and using half white wine and half chicken broth (for my picky husband who doesn't like the taste of wine in his food!) Absolutely delicious! Thank you Chef John!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
This is so simple and yet so delicious! My only change is that I rub olive oil on the outside and sprinkle with course sea salt and cracked black pepper before baking. You can use a little less milk or add a little cream cheese if you are worried about the mixture being too thin, but I have never had any issues.

Garlic Aioli

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This was really good! I added, as other reviewers had, some crushed red pepper and old bay. I also added some extra lemon juice. It was really good as written, but we like a little more zip with our fondue sauces...thanks for sharing!

Simply Potatoes® Cheesy Hash Browns

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This is the only way I prepare hash browns for company now. It is so good and very easy to make. It's a great dish to prepare the night before and throw in the oven in the morning. The only changes I make are that I use half of the cheese and double the onion. I like big chunks of onion, too. You will not be disappointed! I've tried this with and without the topping and I really prefer it without.

Charlotte's Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
This is probably the best recipe for hummus on this site, but you do have to make a few adjustments to make it come out right. First, it is very thick, so you will have to thin it out with either the liquid from the beans (although you get a slight after-taste when you do this), or you can add some vegetable or chicken broth (even water, if you don't have the broth). I doubled the garlic, because if you don't, you can't really taste the garlic and hummus really should have a stronger garlic taste. I also doubled the lemon juice, but if you used fresh lemon juice you probably wouldn't have to do that. The last addition I made was adding some fresh parsley. I have to say that I don't agree with having to peel the beans before mixing - I have tried this in the past and not only is it VERY time consuming, but it doesn't make that much of a difference in the overall taste (unless you are a serious hummus connoisseur, that is!)

Salade Lyonnaise

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This is my new favorite salad! I had no idea how good a poached egg could be over lettuce. I am not a huge fan of endive, so I just used romaine. I used white champagne vinegar instead of red wine vinegar and I added some crispy, warm diced O'Brian potatoes. Sooooo good!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
These were really good, but I did make some minor changes. I toasted pumpernickle squares to make "crostini's" and spread the cream cheese mixture on top. I then layered a very thin slice of an English cucumber, and sprinkled fresh chopped dill. Rave reviews from everyone!

Grilled Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
This is such a great and simple dish to prepare. I have made this several times now and you can't mess this up. The only thing that I do differently is add more pepper and lemon juice. But, it is still great with no changes. Love this recipe!!

Lucky and Rippy's Favorite Dog Food

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
I am so glad that I found this recipe. The first time I made it I followed the recipe exactly and mixed it with his kibble and my dog LOVED it. Since then, I have changed up the ingredients based on what I have on hand, but follow the 3-3-3 ratio (1/3 meat, 1/3 rice & 1/3 vegetables). Thanks so much for posting!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Loved these biscuits and they are so easy and quick! I substituted milk for the water and used Tillamook extra sharp cheddar for the cheese. I also put some of the seasonings in the biscuit dough, as other reviewers did and put them back in the oven for 1 minute after brushing the butter mixture on them. Very addictive!
