Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
I made this for my bf and he loved it! The only change I made was to add a couple cloves of garlic to the sauce. Thanks for this recipe

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
I made this last night, and as some users suggested, cut way down on the balsamic vinegar. I used one large chicken breast which I cut in half, and so reduced balsamic to 1/8 of a cup. I also added more thyme and 4 cloves of minced garlic. I wanted mine to be served with rotini pasta, so I added tomato puree (one large carton) and 1/2 of a can of chicken broth. I cut the chicken into pieces and removed from heat while the sauce cooked for about 25 minutes. I then re-added the chicken and stirred in the pasta and 1/2 of a cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Chipotle Marinated Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
This was an excellent chicken recipe! So juicy and flavorful, and yet not overwhelmingly spicy. The only change I made was to reduce the cayennne pepper to 1/8 of a tsp. I am not a huge fan of hot dishes, but this came out perfect. I also marinated for two days because I was unable to cook the chicken right away. Thanks for this amazing recipe! Will be a new summer time staple for me!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
This is an excellent basic recipe for Sloppy Joes that is far more creative than opening up a can of Manwich. I made a few minor changes such as adding crushed red pepper and tobasco sauce. I also added extra garlic powder (1/2 tsp) and additional ketchup and brown sugar because I like my meat on the sweet side. Oh, and speaking of the meat, I used extra lean ground turkey. My bf loved them, and they even tasted good cold. Will make again, and next time might add jalapeno and cayenne for extra heat. Thanks for the recipe!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
This is an excellent coleslaw recipe! I cut down on the milk, used 2 tbsp half and half and 1 tbsp. skim milk. I added more mayo to thicken it up. I also reduced the recipe to 4 servings because I have found coleslaw to not keep well for very long. Will definitely make again soon

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
This was an excellent basic recipe. It has more of a dip consistency, and isn't as creamy as sesame based hummus, but all the same, I found it to be delicious. I added 1 tsp greek seasoning, lemon juice, white pepper, extra garlic and 1/4 roasted red pepper. I also added a few drops of sesame oil which it could have went without.

Mac and Cheese II

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
The overall flavor of the mac and cheese was good, however I found it to be quite dry upon baking. I would have enjoyed it better prior to baking. I added some extra seasonings such as onion powder, black pepper, and salt. I also used Mexican cheese and Kraft and velveeta singles to make the sauce since I did not have the velveeta block.

Chunky Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
This was one of the best soups I have ever made! I did make some changes. I added 2 pieces of American cheese, seasoned with onion powder, nutmeg, celery salt, fresh chives, and garlic (3 cloves) and used half-and-half and skim milk. I made two batches of the cream and cheese mixture to make the soup extra thick. I also used baby redskins (yellow flesh) and russet potatoes. Excellent, will make again!

Fattoush

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
This salad was exceptional! I made last night for a light dinner, and was blown away by the results. My Dad, who is a very picky eater and not very "experimental" when it comes to cuisine, absolutely loved it. The dressing was light, flavorful, and balanced. Surprisingly, the mint did not overpower the salad, and the various flavors blended together in perfect harmony. I added sweet onion because I LOVE onion in salad, and some chick peas for fiber and protein. We also topped our plates with a few sprinkles of feta, and I left out the pitas to make it healthier. WILL be a new staple weekend meal for my family. The preparation is time consuming, but WELL worth the wait!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
This was my first time ever making homemade pizza. (I made the sauce and dough). The recipe was super easy. The only change I had to make was to add more water because dough was too hard and not mixing properly. THIS makes a really thick crust, almost Chicago-style, so beware.

Warm Mushroom Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
This spread was oh-so good! It was also extremely quick and easy to prepare. I added some herbs( Thyme, rosemary, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, and white pepper) just to give it a more elegant feel. This was one of the best appetizers I have ever tasted. WILL be making when I entertain next.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
all around great burrito! The recipe is so versatile too. I added my own fajita seasoning and cumin to the onions, peppers, and beans. I also used seasoned black beans to begin with. I omitted the jalapeno, because I do not care for spicy foods. I also left out the cilantro because I didn't have any on hand

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
This is such an excellent, easy, and versatile soup! I made a few changes. I used one can of chicken broth to cook the veggies in + 1/2 can water. I sauteed the onions in butter with thyme, garlic powder, salt, white pepper, and onion powder. Instead of using milk, I used half and half and a little bit of heavy cream. I did not measure out exactly three cups. I added nutmeg, onion powder, salt, pepper, and Velveeta, 1/2 slice of swiss cheese, and shredded Mexican cheese to the Roux. Great basic recipe, I just prefer more spices. will definitely make again!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
UPDATE: I have been using this recipe as a base for many months now. I use red wine vinegar instead of red wine, and white wine (just to deglaze). I LOVE this soup! It is not salty, but sweet and tangy. This soup is the real deal! There are so many flavors colliding at once on the palate. sweet, salty, savory! I made a few minor changes based on not having ingredients on hand. I used 2 cooking onions in place of the red because I did not have any red onion and added a hint of sugar while sauteing to help caramelize and sweeten. All I had was beef stock, so I used 1/2 of a carton which filled a 14.5 oz chicken broth can, and another 1/3 of a can after that. I used only two cans chicken broth as well. As far as seasonings go, I used 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/3 cup red wine, 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, and kept herb amounts the same. I made my own homemade garlic crouton and melted Swiss and mozzarella on top in the oven. Did not have any fancy bread on hand. Next time will be sure to use red onions. I can imagine what it does for the flavor of this soup

Fabulous Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I tweaked the recipe a bit. Added a large whole carrot and some diced red onion to roasting pan. Roasted 30 minutes as indicated. I sauteed some sweet onion (about 1/3 of a large onion) in olive oil and butter, and added cauliflower, shallots, carrots and red onion to the pot. Used fresh thyme because I had it on hand in my garden (yes in December in MICHIGAN my Thyme plant is still alive!) Used 2 cups chicken broth and 1/2 cup water. Added a dash of nutmeg. I made a roue instead of fooling with a food processor, and mashed the cauliflower with a potato masher (just as I do when I make cream of broccoli). Very versatile soup, and loved the creamy flavor!

Amy's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
cookies are very moist and chewy, but lack some of the buttery/ salty flavor I enjoy in chocolate chip cookies.

Conchi's Sangria

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
This was a hit at a Wedding Shower I hosted. My cousin (the bride-to-be) said it was her favorite. I scaled down the recipe to only serve 25 people. I also used diet 7up instead of regular to cut down on the sweetness and calories. Definitely will make again and will not change a thing as far as ingredients go. Thanks for this recipe!

Caley's Classic Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
I made this recipe yesterday to try and use up the zucchini from my garden. The flavor is excellent, but thought the bread itself was a bit dry. This could be because I baked on convection bake instead of regular bake. Next time I will not use convection bake and see how it turns out
