Easy Chicken in Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
this is good for diet food. it's got a different flavor. My family recipe is so much more flavorful. But like I said, for diet food it will do.

Fortune Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
I have never considered making fortune cookies but decided it would be a fun way to announce our coming addition. So I braved the looming possible results and after I realized that you fold them with the underside in, they turned out great. Also, I took the advice of other reviewers and added a small amount of water to get a pancake batter consistency. Worked out awesome! I will put them back into the muffin pan to crisp if they don't on there own by saturday. Also, if you like your cookies with both ends touching like I do, use the first couple of open ended oops ones and when you get the latter ones folded put the ends into the open ended cookies to keep them together until the harden enough to set in their own. But super excited it worked and also to see the reaction of our family at the restaurant.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I like dense banana bread. Altho I did substitute half the butter with vanilla yogurt and added cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. It was really yummy. Likely would have been good without the seasonings but I like a bit of spice. I used a 8x4.5 bread pan so I got a loaf and a half. I just used the leftover dough and made hot fresh muffins when we had a slow morning a couple days later. They were gone pretty fast. My 4 year od picky boy ate it up and asked for more. even with the pecan bits in it. I recommend this if you like a heavy, flavorful recipe and have 6 or so overripe bananas. Mmmmm.

Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I skipped the gravy and added a bit more of the suggested seasonings as I love flavorful fried chicken. This is now a part of our weekly menu as my husband and picky 4 year old love this chicken. It is super moist and if you cut your chicken into smaller bits it cooks really fast and you end up with a homemade chicken nugget. I think this is a great simple tasty recipe. What more can you ask for?

Chicken Linguine a la Me

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
I substituted all over this recipe. We used whole grain shells instead of linguine, whole wheat flour vs. regular bleached, no broccolli, no onions, and extra cheese. The family loved it. even my insanely fussy 5 year old dove right in. Next time I might lay off the garlic a bit but otherwise it was great. Like chicken mac n cheese. Score one for moms with picky eaters!

Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
made a double batch and froze half. Made the 2nd today and threw it in the blender. Was much better. Didnt change a thing minus omitting the marshmallows and my family loved that this healthy dessert. The sweet potatoes are all the sugar you need and I dont feel guilty letting my 18 month old eat it up. Will make again. Perfect with homemade whipped cream.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I have made this several times already and the whole family is crazy about it! I even entered into a cooking contest using it over these great chicken rolls that I found on here, that are more like spinach stuffed chicken, and took 1st place! I use half garlic salt and half garlic powder as we like the flavor and saltiness of it. Since I found this recipe no one wants to eat italian at an restaurant anymore. It is worth it to be slow about getting the ingredients mixed and melted just right as the ending result is sooooo rewarding. And I use my stainless steel pans and they never burn or anything you just have to know how to control the temperature. For those who said this was mediocre and a waste of time, you obviously have missed something or are used to that nasty grocery-store jar sauce. This is just like the sauce from our local Italian hot spot. A-mazing! Thanks so much!

Flavorful Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I made this for a cooking competition at my husbands job and took 1st place. I put some of the 'quick and easy alfredo' (also allrecipes) and it was amazing. The first time I made this my whole family; including my 18 month old and 6 year old; were just totally in a food euphoria. My son asks for it every night! And he is picky. I have us fresh and frozen spinach and i like te frozen just as well and the convenience makes it easier. Ran into a lack of feta one night and I will tell you that was a bummer. You must have it! it is bland and dull without it. I use reduced fat feta, reduced fat cream cheese, turkey bacon, skim milk and whole wheat bread crumbs that I season and the results are great. I am so glad I ran across this recipe as it now graces our dinner tabe 1 night a week now.

Tangy Shrimp and Scallops

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
So yummy! I used cheap frozen shrimp and they were even great. I havent tried the scallops but seeing as they get less than favorable reviews I may skip it altogether. I did this late one afternoon and by the time DH was home and grilled them they had marinated for hours and they were so delish! Pair it with some cous cous and broccoli and zucchini and a light white zin and you have a fine meal fit for even the most refined tastes. WOuld make a great horsedoeurevs as well. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
My large family adores this recipe. I love how crazy simple it is. I use a 16 oz jar of salsa in place of the diced tomatoes w chilies. I have always used broth in place of the beer as I never have one around. But this is the easiest thing ever. I throw in the cans of beans and all the other stuff onto the crock pot w frozen chicken breast filets and by the end of the cycle that chicken is just falling apart and perfect to shred up into the soup. On the rare day there are leftover, they reheat very well.

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I had the worst craving for coconut cake and found this recipe. My kids can't have any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives so this took some modification. I used a family recipe for the white cake and baked that. I skipped the sweetened condensed at the advice of many reviewers. I used a condensed coconut cream and added a bit of heavy cream to it and poured that over the punctured cakes. I also cut each of the 2 cakes onto 2 to end up with a 4 layer cake. Make a cream cheese, whipped cream frosting and put that in between each layer. The top and sides I frosted and put the flaked coconut as well as toased crushed pecans all around. My kids are pretty picky but were in love with this. Husband isnt a huge coconut fan but even he had to admit it was stellar. It did hold better and have a better texture after being chilled overnight so I would recommend making it a day early. Definately a favourite!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I made a triple batch of this for a large gathering. It was a soup salad event. There were 4 soups total and this was the only one that was scraped clean out of the pot! I actually didnt have bacon so I added a spash of liquid smoke and you would never know! I had so many rave reviews and had to share the recipe over 4 times! I spent a ton of money at the restaurant that makes this just for this soup, now I dont have to. Yay! No more wasting money. I can feed ten people for the cost of one trip easily. Thanks

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This is the only recipe I will ever use! The sour cream really makes this stellar. The nuts and the perfect golden crust... The moist texture with the heavenly scent.... Its hard on the calories but just too good to resist. Keeper!!

Master Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I have used this many times with consistent results. I love yeast dough and love not waiting for it to rise twice even more. The right amount of sweetness to use for a calzone and ideally flavored for breadsticks with a hint of rosemary. Perfect for our family, Thanks!

No Tomato Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
It's sweet and a nice change of pace. We were checking our family for salicalyte sp?) intollerances and needed a tomato free spaghetti sauce. Its a bold pink color and ppl watching you reheat and eat your leftovers are gonna give you funny looks but I truthfully didnt mind it. I could go either way, traditional or beet sauce. We call it 'Beetsghetti' at our house and even the kids like it. Great way to sneak in new flavours in a familiar way.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I had a couple mangos getting ready to go so looked for other ways to use them as we were mangoed out. This was so yummy! not spicy and a pretty complex flavor with the cilantro. Will keep this recipe for those mangoful summer days.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
Made this many times. Have finally gotten smart and make double and freeze a casserole to eat later. It took me awhile to find a cream of chicken soup that didnt have artificial flavors or preservatives (for my sensitive kids) but the effort was worth it as this is a favorite recipe around our house.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
We have eaten stroganoff for years but it was always the package seasoned kind. We found out that the kids cant have anything artificial or with preservatives so there was a long time that we didnt eat any. When we found this recipe and tried it the were so excited they each ate 2 and 3 bowls! I was afraid the wine would make it so tangy for them but they didnt even notice. And bonus, no behavioral problems from the nasty packaged garbage!

Grilled Salmon II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
If we have salmon, we have it like this. There is nothing better than this. We make it exactly like the recipe states and even ppl who 'dont like fish' enjoy this marinated version. Thanks for a great recipe to set our salmon apart.

Flourless dark chocolate cake with almonds

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I should have taken a picture! We tried a flourless cake at a fancy restaurant so naturally I had to try my hand at it. Its dense and cold and dark and rich. Just like chocolate cake should be, but without the carbs of flour. Great with a small scoop or vanilla ice cream.
