Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
You need to modify this recipe. Per some other reviews I made the following modifications: I used turkey bacon instead of regular bacon, and I cooked it in the microwave to save time. It's important to drain the tomatoes in a strainer to really get out ALL the excess water. I used 1/4 cup ranch dressing instead of mayo. I added 1/4 cup chopped green onion, 2 cans grands flaky buttermilk biscuits, 1 tsp dried basil flakes, and the swiss chees as directed in the recipe. I also used a silicone mini muffin pan. The cups popped out with NO trouble whatsoever. I would definitely use one when making these. I used all the filling this way. They were devoured by my guests!

Cheater Pot Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
With my modifications I was able to make this recipe a 5 instead of a 3. I used oscar-meyer pre-cooked chicken chunks in a bag, not a can. Also, I used 1 can cream of potato soup and 1 can of cream of chicken. I added a lot of extra seasonings- onion salt, more pepper, and garlic powder. I bought green giant frozen mixed vegetables that you steam in the bag. I did that. I put some olive oil (no butter) in a saucepan and warmed the chicken up while the vegetables cooked in the microwave. When they finished cooking I put them in the pan, and started with the biscuits. I pushed 4 grands biscuits into the bottom of a 9 inch square pan. I should've greased it, b/c they stuck a bit when I got them out. I cooked the other 4 biscuits separately as directed. So I only preheated the oven to 350. Then I added the soups to the vegetables and chicken. I used the 1/2 cup of milk, but I added it probably a 2tbsps at a time. I would stir it in, let it sit for about 30 seconds, and then add some more. I did this until there wasn't any milk left. It was not runny at all, and it really helped the flavor. I poured it overtop of the cooked biscuits in the pan. Then I halved the other 4 biscuits and put them on top of the mix. I didn't cook it any longer. It was really quite tasty. My husband is crazy about biscuits being doughy, so that's why I cooked it that way. He ate quite a bit, so it was a success!

Peppered Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
This is a really great chicken recipe. The flavors are wonderful. I salt and pepper to taste on the chicken. With the sauce I think the grape juice is necessary for the flavor. I don't think the wine would taste the same. The chicken is very juicy. My husband loved it, and I will definitely make it again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
Wow! What a great cookie! It is not a crispy cookie, hence the name, but I don't like crispy chocolate chip cookies. These do have a more cake-like quality, but something about it is irresistible! I made mine quite large, so it didn't make 72 servings. I did add 2 tbsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp salt. Other than that. they were perfect!!! Definitely make these cookies!

Yia Yia's Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
I went to Greece over the summer, and I absolutely loved the tzatziki there. I couldn't wait to find an authentic recipe. This is it! I didn't add anything, and it was perfect- just like what I had in Greece. It really makes a lot, so when I am not entertaining, I will scale it back. Thanks for the great recipe! Spring for the English cucumbers.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
These were great! I bought Italian seasoned bread crumbs, so I didn't add any additional seasonings to that mixture. I added closer to a 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese. I also sprayed the tops with cooking spray as other reviewers suggested. This made the chips crispy. These were devoured by my guests. I served with ranch dressing for dipping.

Strawberry Champagne Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
I made this just for fun when my family came to visit. Since I wasn't tryign to make an ornate presentation, I didn't bother with any sort of garnish. The punch tasted great, and I made the recipe as is. I suppose if the intention was to get tipsy, you would omit one liter of ginger ale. However, I don't like my family or myself to be tipsy when we get together, so this really worked!

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
This was a great recipe. I did make some modifications. I ommited the chevril. I also used closer to a cup and a half of olive oil. I used wheat pita pockets, and they just really soaked up the olive oil. I baked for 5 minutes and they came out perfect! **Update** I made these again, and I used less olive oil because instead of cutting the pita pockets into triangles and then brushing them with the olive oil mixture, I only cut them in half, and then I brushed them. After each was covered I cut into triangles. This was SOOO much easier and less time consuming!

Pumpkin Roll III

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
I have never made a pumpkin roll before, and I was highly successful. The filling is AWESOME! The only thing different I did was sprinkle powdered sugar on the cake before I put the cream cheese on and after I rolled it up. Make sure you roll it in the towel while it is still quite warm. Mine did not crack! Thanks for the great recipe!

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
I use ground turkey all the time as it is healthier (and cheaper) than ground beef. I am always looking for something different, and I was excited to try this recipe. I buy turkey in 1 lb packages, so that's how much I used. Also, I was out of gas for my grill so I had to cook them on the stove top. I didn't have any problems cooking them. However, the end result was a little disappointing. I thought there was too much pesto. I will only use 1 tbsp next time. I really like this flavor, but it was overwhelming. My husband thought they were too salty, so I will also cut back on the seasoned salt next time as well. I didn't add the additional on top, so I will probably only use t tsp total. I also wanted more cheese, so next time I will probably add 3/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup. With those modifications I think they will be a lot better!

Turkey Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
This recipe is a great way to add vegetables. I also cut back on the butter, using only 3 tbsp instead of 6. I also use ritz crackers instead of saltines. Although this recipe is good the first time you make it, I like the leftovers better. Something about refrigerating it- maybe the flavors mix better. Overall, its a good casserole.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
i made some modifications to this. First, I always use ground turkey instead of ground beef. I also used 1 cup of instant rice to 1 cup of water, and I cooked it separately. I added chopped onion when I browned the turkey. I also used 4 large peppers, but I should've only used three because they weren't completely stuffed. Also, when I mixed the turkey with the rice, and other stuff I added a lot of other seasonings, like italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion salt, crushed red pepper, and more ground black pepper. I also added parmesan cheese in with that mix. I boiled the peppers for about 8 minutes. This was too long, maybe only 5. O ran cold water over them afterwards. I topped them with the tomato sauce and italian seasoning (didn't seem like enough sauce), and also more parmesan cheese. I covered the pan with aluminum foil and I baked for 20 minutes. They turned out really well. I really think I could've baked for 15 minutes. I was pleased, and my husband loved them. :) a 5 with my modifications.

Bacon and Egger Dinner Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
I liked the ingredients of this salad, but I just couldn't use mayo for the dressing. I added tomatoes and I used ranch dressing. I will make it again like that. I also used turkey bacon instead of regular bacon.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
I don't eat chicken on the bone, so I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts as another reviewer did. I only used 1/2 cup of miracle whip (not a mayo fan). I was disappointed because the chicken was like shake and bake. Next time I will try boneless with skins. Maybe that will help. It was juicy, just not like fried chicken.

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
This was a pathetic version of a tuna melt. I was so excited because it got such rave reviews, but it was sooo bland. I like my version better. Look for Awesome Tuna Sandwiches.
