Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
These were my first try at a veggie burger and I can honestly say I liked them MORE than real burgers. The seasonings was just right. Mine held their shape and I made them into 4, rather than 5 burgers. Thanks for the recipe!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
This is one of the best and easiest soups I've tried! I blended everything, but left one whole can of black beans and added some corn. It was delish!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
The BEST honey mustard chicken I've had! I followed the recipe other than subbing regular mustard for dijon. Still delicious! I doubled the marinade to use some for basting and the rest for dipping sauce. I used chicken tenderloins which grilled fast and were still perfect and juicy!

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
These are great and I wouldn't change anything. My only tip would be to make them the night before and just pop them in the oven in the morning!!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
A delicious tomato soup! I'll never go back to condensed tomato soup. I halved the recipe, used half and half, used dried basil instead of fresh and added some salt. It was perfect!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
These were a hit! So much better than plain roasted potatoes! I used 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 2 tablespoons of honey, along with a squirt of regular mustard. I think I might add even more of the mixture next time but these were great like this!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Perfect! And so easy! I followed the recipe exactly except my chicken was 5 lbs. It cooked for about 1 hour, 20 minutes and it came out just right and so moist.

Frogmore Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
This was delicious! I halved the recipe but I used an entire can of Old Bay. And instead of shrimp I used 2 lbs of King crab legs.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
These wings couldn't have turned out better! I doubled the recipe (to make 2 lbs of wings) but followed the recipe exactly the first time. They turned out great! The second time I added more hot sauce and a touch more cayenne pepper and they were perfect!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
The perfect chili! I usually just make chili from a packet and was bored of that so I tried this recipe - wish I'd found it sooner! I halved the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. I added some leftover spaghetti sauce because I thought it needed some but that was my only change. I used Tex-Mex chili seasoning and "medium" salsa and it was the PERFECT amount of heat!

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
This was my first time using panko crumbs and I loved it. Very simple and tasty, just remember to season the chicken with whatever you like - I used salt, pepper and some garlic powder.

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
Great basic recipe! I halved the recipe (and it still made plenty) and I added a few things. First I added just a couple teaspoons of sugar to mellow out the tartness and I also added garlic, dried basil and salt. I gave it 4 stars only because I don't think it would have been as good without the extras but definitely try this recipe! Also, I didn't cook it for as long as it states because even on low, it reduced down too much for my liking and I added a little more cream (light cream) at the end to regain the creaminess.

Thai Chicken Curry with Pineapple

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
This is fabulous!!! This is better (and cheaper) than the Indian restaurants here in England! I added an onion and added a little extra brown sugar. Next time I will definitely add more curry paste or maybe some hot peppers sliced very thin (like I've seen in the Indian or Thai restaurants). If you're unsure about making our own curry dish - make this one!!! It's very easy and tasty!!!

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Much better than store-bought macaroni salad! I only used 1/4 - 1/3 cup of sugar, left out the celery seed and used an entire box of macaroni. Very good!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
This was my first time making guacamole so I needed a recipe - this was perfect! I only had one avocado, added some lime juice, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and some cayenne pepper and it was perfect. I didn't add tomatoes because I didn't have any and I HATE cilantro. :) But it was great, thanks for sharing!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Although this recipe seems a bit unusual I still decided to try it and I'm glad I did! I cut the recipe down to 1/4th since it's only me. I used one can of kidney beans and one small sweet potato. I mashed the beans while they were still in the can but they don't necessarily even have to be mashed. It was a great recipe, I only wish I had sour cream to add to them!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I doubled the sauce but used 1/2 cup brown sugar + 1/4 cup white sugar. I used chicken thighs, turned the temp down to 375/400 and was sure to baste often. This reminded me of General Tso's chicken more than anything and I plan to add chili garlic paste next time!

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
I had some sweet Italian sausage I needed to use and I'm so happy I found this recipe! It was so easy but oh so delicious! I wouldn't change a thing!

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This soup is SO good and SO easy. The only change I would make next time is to use diced tomatoes rather than whole. Also, if you plan on having any leftovers, I would suggest cooking the orzo separately and then adding it to the individual bowls. Absolutely delicious!

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Great and easy recipe! My only suggestions would be to omit the salt (because of the cheese) and I also chopped the shredded cheddar cheese a little finer so it stuck better to the chicken. I followed the other suggestions of putting a little layer of breadcrumb mix underneath the chicken in the pan before baking. Very yummy and easy and my picky 4-year-old liked it too!
