Creamy Parmesan and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Penne

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
I used 2lbs of chicken (salted and peppered) and added an onion. I also used some olive oil in addition to butter. Otherwise I made as written and it was wonderful. Seasoning was perfect. Hubby kept raving over how good it was! Will definitely make again.

Carrot Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I made these for my picky 1 year old and he loves them. My only complaint is that they came out sticky.

Tuna Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I was searching for a tuna casserole recipe that didn't use cream soups and came across this one. I used 12oz noodled, tripled the sauce and doubled the cheese and tuna. I also added some pepper, celery seed, and oregano because the sauce was bland and threw in a bag of frozen carrots, celery, and onion. It was delicious! Leftovers were yummy too, and I liked that were was no crumb topping to get soggy. Will definitely be making again!

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
I made this with only about 2lbs of beef and one onion soup packet which was too strong. Next time I'll probably use 3lbs of beef with one soup packet. I also used two bags of frozen stew veggies and omitted the mushrooms. Cooked on high for 4 hours, then low for 1 hour (was short on time) and it came out thick and tender. Leftovers were delicious after I added some extra water. Even my picky one year old ate it. Will definitely make again.

Ham Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
Delicious! The only thing I changed was I used apricot preserves because I couldn't find mango chutney.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
This recipe was just OK. I thought it was a little bland and not creamy enough so I doubled the sauce and it still wasn't what I was looking for. This one just isn't for me.

Japanese Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
This is SOOOO delicious! I've made it with both steak and chicken and much prefer the chicken. I add garlic, use a bag of frozen stir fry veggies in addition to the mushrooms and bok choy, and omit the celery and green onions. The sauce is perfect - don't change a thing! I don't bother removing the meat/veggies from the pan between steps or work in batches. It's not necessary if you have a large enough pot.

Pumpkin Wheat Honey Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
I modified this recipe to be lower in carbs to fit my gestational diabetes diet. I used a whole can of pumpkin, omitted the raisins and honey, and added about 1 tsp vanilla. It doesn't satisfy the sweet tooth but it's a nice filling snack. Very forgiving recipe.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
I was looking for a good casserole recipe that didn't use condensed soup so I was very happy to try this one. As far as taste goes, this is definitely 5 stars in my book, though hubby thought it could use more seasoning. For those that complained it created a lot of dishes, maybe you'd be better off with a condensed soup recipe. When making something from scratch I expect more dishes, and to me it's worth it. To save time I used leftover shredded chicken breast and pre-chopped celery and onion that I get from my grocery store. I omitted the carrots (personal preference) and substituted Italian seasoning for the savory. Other than that I made as written. Plan to at least double the prep time if you have to cook the chicken and chop the veggies. Overall great recipe and I definitely plan to make again.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
WOW! These are delicious! I am 6 months pregnant and at 10:30pm I had a craving for sugar cookies. Hubby was sleeping so I decided to look for an easy recipe that used ingredients I had on hand. Boy did I hit the jackpot with this one! The only change I made was to add 1/2 tsp almond extract in addition to the vanilla. The cookies were in the oven in no time, and took about 12 min to cook. They smelled so yummy and looked so perfect I could hardly wait for them to cool before devouring a few. My dough did look a little crumbly but the cookies were nice and chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside - just like from a bakery. You've definitely got to try this recipe!

Taco Pie

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
I am only giving this 3 stars because 1) it's not very healthy, 2) it took alot of prep time and made alot of dishes, 3) it did not make good leftovers, and 4) it wasn't as yummy as I was hoping. I didn't care for the crescent roll "crust" - it just seemed really out of place with the mexican flavors. I don't think I'll be making this again.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
YUM! Who knew pulled pork could be so easy? I made the pork the night before and let it marinade in the bbq sauce in the fridge overnight. In retrospect I think it made the pork kind of mushy and lacking texture. Will definitely be making again but won't add the bbq sauce until I'm ready to bake.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
My husband has been asking for salisbury steak so I decided to give this recipe a try. I omitted the salt and added minced garlic to the meat. I followed the advice of other reviewers and added cream of mushroom soup to the gravy. I also browned the patties in a pan and finished in the oven at 375 for 30 min. The meat came out moist and flavorful but the gravy was disappointing. The french onion soup flavor was SO overpowering it almost didn't taste like gravy at all. Hubby ate it but said he wished the gravy tasted more beefy. Next time I'll just buy a can of beef gravy to put on the patties.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Very good and a nice change of pace from my usual pasta dishes. I made the following changes based on our preferences or what I had on hand: omitted the olive oil, used crushed tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes, reduced heavy cream to 1 cup, and omitted the parsley. It came out really good and even better the next day. I think next time I'll try making it with ground turkey instead of sausage. I'm just not a huge fan of sausage but my husband LOVED it.

Anaheim Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
I made these tonight for dinner and was pretty disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly but ended up having to "doctor it up" last minute because it was so bland. I do have to say that the fish was cooked well but I found the tacos very difficult to eat because it broke right through the corn tortillas - we ate it with a fork. I liked the idea of this recipe but it just didn't work. Won't be making it again.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
As written, this chili is definitely lacking something. I made a double batch and added black beans, kidney beans, chopped celery, tomato paste, and cumin. Came out delicious but tasted like regular chili, probably because I altered it so much. Great way to use up extra pumpkin. Next time I make it I'll try to find a balance of getting good flavor without hiding the pumpkin.

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
YUMMY! This was my first attempt at stuffed peppers and it was surprisingly easy and delicious. I didn't have any Italian seasoning so I threw in some oregano, garlic and extra basil. After I added the rice to the tomato mixture it seemed sticky so I added some milk to make it creamier. Also, I used one green pepper and one red pepper - hands down the red pepper was better. Great recipe, can't wait to make again!

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
The end product was pretty tasty but the lentils took WAY longer to cook than stated. There wasn't enough flavor either so I added a packet of taco seasoning. Served with shredded colby jack and fresh avocado. Yum! Will make again with some tweaking.

My Country Style Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
My boyfriend gave this recipe 3 stars but I think it deserves 4 stars. We both agreed that it would be much better with pork, which I will try next time. I did make one substitution - I used leek soup mix instead of onion because that's what I had. The gravy tasted amazing but the steak was overdone, and I only cooked it for 45 min instead of the full hour.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
I made this several nights ago and my boyfriends eyes lit up with the first bite. It was delicious! I was surprised that it was so easy to make. Based on other reviews I made the following changes: omitted the celery and used mushrooms instead, browned the pork first with some minced garlic, and substituted beef stock for half of the red wine. I served with butternut squash risotto, and the rest of the wine of course. You've got to try this one!
