New Year's Day Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I wanted to rate this four stars instead of five because it did need alot of tweeking.I rated it five because I don't want anyone to pass it by. I took the suggestions of others who rated the recipe and made the following changes. I used chicken broth instead of water and used about 8 cups, which is about half what the recipe called for. That amount would have been entirely too much. I used rotels (original).I used one onion instead of two,more garlic,and cajun seasoning to taste. I used diced ham but threw in a hamhock while cooking for flavor. It turned out wonderful.I made a pot for home and one for work.Alot of people don't like black-eyed peas, but everyone loved them. It's a must try!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
made this recipe just as written despite review suggestions. It was awful! Very dry, almost as if macaroni portion was 4 times too much. Will try again, altering recipe.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
my children and I loved this recipe, but did alter a little after reading reviews. used rigatoni,instead of angel hair pasta.added one can of diced tomatoes with garlic and the rest fresh tomatoes, which i blanched and peeled before adding. I added about a 1/4 cup of red wine and around a tsp of spicy pesto. also added oregano and doubled the garlic. added fresh basil the last five minutes to enhance flavor. will definately make again!
