Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
I hate store bought alfredo sauce. I decided to give it a try using 15 oz.Ragu garlic roasted parmesan alfredo sauce (entire jar) and used 1 8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I used 1 cup mozz and 1/2 cup Italian 6 blend, 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan. I didn't have garlic cloves so I used 1 tsp garlic powder instead. Sprinkled a little more parmesan and Italian blend cheese on top and baked it till lightly golden. Awesome!!! Did not taste like alfredo sauce with these modifications. Always tastes better the next day. My new go to recipe. It's for a potluck and I am saving some for home. Ha!

Quick Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
I hate store bought alfredo sauce. I've made this several times (and tonight). My go to alfredo sauce recipe. I use fresh parmesan and grate it with a microplane zester. The cheese melts easily. I skip on the seasonings and add McKormick chicken seasoning instead. I'm addicted! Thanks!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
I don't have steak seasoning so I subbed with Mc Cormick's Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning and rubbed it on the meat and then added the marinade and let it marry overnight till dinnertime. Tried it with pork tenderloin 2lbs. My 1st time making this. Results, amazing! 2nd time I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and grilled it. Great too! I did splash some more balsamic vinaigrette (Newman's Own Lite) near the end of grilling. I prefer the oven because it's more flavorful with pan juices for basting. 3rd time I used 4 1/2 lbs pork loin and used original marinade and let it marry for 48 hours. Oven roasted the pork loin with marinade and made a gravy with the juices. Got rave reviews on the gravy especially (from the marinade and not discarding it but cooking it with the pork) also the pork was so tender. Fussy eater said he wants the marinade recipe and my gravy that was from the marinade. Just added cornstarch, water and salt as needed for the gravy using the juices & whisk in till desired gravy consistency. Eyeball it. Highest compliments ever! Thank you.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Exact ingredients how I make my pizza crust Great basic recipe. I do make 2 thin crust pizzas (14") with it. I also let it rise for 1 hour. One pizza is plenty in my house so I freeze the other half of dough. When I need it I put it in the fridge and let it cold rise. Easy peasy. I bake mine at 425 on bottom rack for 10-12 minutes using an air bake pizza pan, or on my pizza stone. Both result in a crispy crust. I also add my own spices as I add my pizza toppings. I'm hungry for pizza now. Great basic recipe you can tweak to your liking.

Grill Master Chicken Wings

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
Less sodium Soy sauce & Italian dressing. Marinade meat for 2hrs(or more depending on thickness of meat) Fire up bbq and grill. AMAZING!!! I didn't have wings on hand so I skipped the sauce and used boneless skinless chicken thighs. Can't wait to try it with wings. I have 2 favs now, this recipe & mahogany chicken wings. Thanks so much!

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
WOW!!! This is how I make my pizza crust. Only thing I do differently is use 1 tsp of sugar. I don't have a sweet tooth. I also cut the dough in 1/2 to make 2 pizzas because hubby likes a thin crust. I like both. A keeper recipe no doubt! I make mine on a pizza stone or sometimes on a air bake pizza pan (small holes in pan).

Ricardo's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
Awesome pizza crust but too sweet. 2nd time I made it I only used 1 tsp sugar and 2 tbsps olive oil and it was perfect. I also didn't mix the spices in with my crust and used it as part of the toppings instead. Most importantly I baked mine on the bottom rack at 400F. My oven cooks fast. I don't have a bread machine and this dough came in no time. I sometimes cut the dough in half to make 2 smaller thin crust pizzas. Perfect! Thanks for posting. My go to pizza crust from now on. P.S. I own a pizza peel. I had the same problem. I may try adding some cornmeal to the peel (after dusting the peel with flour.)

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
These were good (and lacking something) but my company thought they were great and couldn't stop eating them. So I am giving it a 5 star based on following the recipe to the T and how well received they were. Thank you.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
This was good (but not my best in my hubby's opinion and mine too). I didn't use all the water. Still had 1/3 cup water leftover. Hubby liked the crispiness of the crust but prefers my pizza. I think I will stick with bread flour but thank you for posting. I like experimenting and trying other recipes.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
This tasted like spaghetti sauce with cheese, not pizza sauce. Too thick. I had to add more water to thin it out some. I left out the honey and anchovy paste and pepper flakes. since I didn't have them. Sorry, just wasn't pizza sauce to me. Not a complete waste though. I will use the remaining sauce for my spaghetti.

Hunan Kung Pao

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
Great flavor! I left out the shrimp and used 2 chicken breasts & doubled the sauce and added veggies I had on hand. (mushrooms, onions, green peppers, celery, shredded carrot, and green beans.) I added some sweet chili sauce in place of the red chili peppers. I have at least 6 servings of this dish (and I was trying to cook for 2.) I served this over rice and it was a hit! Looking forward to leftovers. Thanks !

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
This was "one of your best" said hubby. Tender, moist and flavorful! I was in a hurry to get dinner started so I skipped the marinating. I like to use seasoned salt or Tony Chachere's for flavor. Put just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan and lightly browned both sides of chicken and then baked it for 30 mins. I left out the baking powder. Didn't need it. Definitely a keeper! Thanks

Asparagus 'Guacamole'

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Excellent! I think I will add more lime juice. I love the fresh cilantro taste. This tastes more like an asparagus salsa (to me) than a guacamole. At any rate I love it! Thanks!!!

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
Thanks for the recipe. Finally found one that fits the bill. I did use less water (3/4 cup and a few extra sprinkles of flour) and cut the dough in half and froze it for next time since I prefer thin crust. It made a 14 inch thin crust pizza (using an air bake pan with holes on bottom) and was strong enough to handle all my toppings. Hubby said, "You can sell that!" Broccoli slaw(good filler, I saute mine first with mushroom and onion) is great topped with any leftover meat. Thanks so much!!! Added to my favorite tried tested and true recipe keepers.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
Yummy!!! Just made them and tried one. Love the crumb topping! I added 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. I used unsalted butter since that is what I had on hand.

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I LOVED this! Great flavors! I used skinless chicken leg quarters. Best of all you can use whatever veggies to suit your taste. I used approx 3 1/2 cups broth instead of water & added onions and 1 can of mushroom stems & pieces with the chicken as it cooked in the broth along with spices & added 1/2 tsp dried rosemary. I added the rest of the veggies near end of cooking when adding the dumplings. Left out peas since I didn't have any. Aroma makes your mouth water. Will leave out potatoes next time. Thanks for posting this great recipe! I will be making this again (hopefully when I have company over.)

Easy Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I used Pepperidge Herbed Seasoned stuffing (not the cubed as called for in the recipe). Best mistake I made! I took off the foil at the end and browned the top 10 mins in the oven. My new favorite sausage stuffing recipe. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I cut this recipe in half. Cooking for 2 here. I used cream of chicken instead of mushroom. It turned out fantastic! I covered it with foil for 45 mins and removed foil for remaining 5 mins. Let stand for 5 mins. Turned out amazing! I also used fresh broccoli which is what I had on hand. Hubby loved it! No need to add salt to this dish.
