Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
Thanks for posting-this was really good! I followed the recipe almost exactly except for the bread crumb mixture. I had plain bread crumbs but I thought it would be a little bland with just that and Parmesan so I added in a few sprinkles of onion powder, oregano, basil, paprika and red pepper flakes to spice it up. I baked it for 30 minutes and let it rest for the remaining 5 minutes. The chicken came out moist and it smelled AWESOME while cooking. Served it with mashed potatoes and some mixed veggies. Yep - I will definitely be making this one again!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
I've been making this for years, pretty much exactly as written. The prep is fast and no hassle and most of the ingredients are always on hand at home. Perfect for a weeknight meal and a favorite in our house. I usually serve it topped with sour cream and black olives. I add add refried beans along with a shredded lettuce, cheese and pico de gallo salad on the side - just top with a little salsa/sour cream mix for the dressing and voila! you have dinner!

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
I liked this and probably could have given it 5 stars but felt it needed more zing. After cooking the chicken breasts I set those aside on a plate covered in foil and then sauteed onions for about 3 minutes. Then instead of the tomato/mild chile can, I used diced tomato with jalapeno and instead of just the kernel corn I used the Southwest corn with peppers. Then, I upped the cumin to a tsp and added it to the bean/tomato mixture. I also added a tsp of minced garlic, a tsp of crushed red pepper, a half tsp of hot sauce (I prefer Crystal) and cilantro.

Rolled Flank Steak

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
This turned out FANTASTIC! The hardest part (for me) was butterflying the steak. I followed the recipe pretty closely - I decided to microwave the bacon strips for about 1.5 minutes (great tip). The only other difference was that I used jarred roasted red pepper instead of raw and left out the mushrooms (we don't like them). The meat's flavor came out really good - I let it marinade for about 5-6 hours and cooked it for the full hour. Weber makes a great Chicago steak seasoning that may have helped - my husband doesn't usually like flank steak but he said that this recipe made him a believer! Thanks for sharing!

Spinach, Sausage and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
This was really good - I made only a couple of minor changes based on reading the reviews. I used hot Italian sausage and added diced onion and garlic while I was browning it. I only used one package of spinach and squeezed it with a towel to get most of the liquid out. I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese and added some oregano into the mixture. I think next time I'll add black olives to the cheese topping. Thanks for sharing!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
This was FANTASTIC! I took the advice of others and mixed the mayo with sour cream. I didn't have garlic pepper so used a heaping tsp of minced garlic and added some coarse ground pepper. I also chopped up a red bell pepper and added for color. My chicken breasts were large so I upped the cooking time to 45 minutes. It turned out really moist. My husband LOVED it! Thanks so much for for sharing the recipe - this will definitely go in the "keeper" file!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I don't usually rate recipes but this was a FANTASTIC starter! I'm usually not a fan of the slow cooker - I like my meat more textured vs. mushy. This turned out great - I used a 3 lb tri tip roast - used the entire onion soup mix packet - threw in 1 can of cream of broccoli (we don't like mushrooms) swapped out the water for beef broth and about a half tablespoon of minced garlic, a few healthy shakes of dried parsley flakes, salt and pepper. cooked on low for 7.5 hours. I added red potatoes (cut into quarters) and petite carrots in the last 3 hours. Right before serving I added a bit of cornstarch just to thicken up the gravy a bit. I wish I'd done mashed potatoes - the gravy was THAT good. I'd definitely make this one again - maybe adding in some sliced green peppers and onions for the veggies.

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
Great starter recipe! Turned out great. I made a few adjustments to suit our tastes. I seasoned my chops with garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, lots of pepper (love it) and a little cumin. Because hubby and I are not mushroom fans went with cream of chicken soup and instead of milk, I used a 2 or 3 healthy dollops of sour cream, along with the Kitchen Bouquet to make the gravy more appealing. We served it over chedder/broccoli rice... hubby ate the leftovers with a vengance! Thanks!
