Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
For perfect, nearly sticky rice (my fav!) for every 1 cup of rice add 1.5 cups of water, bring to a boil, cover & simmer for 20 minutes. Perfect every time! Anyway, I took the advice in one of the reviews to add extra salsa... Oops! Big mistake on my part. I went a little salsa crazy & all I could taste was the salsa! I simmered the chicken in the sauce on the stovetop & I mixed the rice & chicken together. I think 2 cups of cheese is waaay too much, so I only used a handful of cheddar and broiled the casserole for 5 minutes before serving. Overall this is a good weeknight recipe.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
Love this recipe! However, I had to use 4+ tsp of milk in order to get it smooth. At first after using 2 tsp of milk (having not read others reviews) I was stuck with a huge lump of sugar! It was pretty awful, but once I made the adjustments- it was perfect. While I added extra milk, I didn't add extra corn syrup. This gave my cookies a dull look instead of the brilliant gloss I had hoped for. So definitely add equal parts of milk & corn syrup. Next time I'll try 3tsp of each! Great smooth look, easy to work with... I'm so happy I found this recipe!

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I made about 120 of these pretzel turtles & tossed 6 in a celophane bag & stapled on a holiday label made out of cardstock (check out paper-source.com for a great how to!). It's a great add on to a smaller christmas gift! Instead of topping with pecan halves, I topped the chocolate with plain almonds! Delicious. The perfect combination of salty & sweet.

Pesto Pita Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I used Classico's prepared pesto. Mmm.. that is by far the best pesto around. While using a tortilla is a good suggestion, you really have to watch that the tortilla doesn't bubble up while being baked. I made this once before using a sun-dried tomato flavoured tortilla & it turned into one huge puffball after only 4 minutes! One thing I found to combat that problem was to lightly toast the tortilla on the rack in the oven for 3-5 minutes with a pot on top (to keep the tortilla flat) before adding the pesto & cheese. However, if you're making this for a crowd; that is a less than ideal process. Stick to what the original recipe says: Use a pita!!

Crunchy Bagel Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I took mommymeggy's advice: I put the bagel chips in a ziplock bag, poured the melted butter in & did a little dance (shook the bag to distribute the butter lol)! It's so much easier & you do get a lot better "coverage". Thanks for the tip!

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I've made this recipe a few times now. Its perfect! If you don't have sweet relish on hand, I'd suggest you pick some up and store it in your fridge. I've made this recipe with both sweet relish and minced sweet pickles & I have to say it tastes more authentic with the relish!

Pasta Hot! Hot! Hot!

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
Easy & Quick! I used butter instead of olive oil as suggested, but next time I will cut the amount in 1/2. It was way too "greasy" for my pallet. Other than that- it was a fantastic quick side dish to our fish! :)

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Quick & healthy! Instead of 1tbsp of brown sugar, I used 1tbsp of honey- just a habit. I hate adding sugar to meals. I also added sliced red peppers & onions to the dish. I'll make this next time I'm in a pinch.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
My husband put this all together before he went to work one morning- its a good basic recipe. Nothing will knock your socks off, but the gravy is good & the meat (as long as its a good cut) is so tender you can cut it with a fork. We served this over rice. The only additions made were: added onions, carrots & seasoned the roast. This is great if you know you're going to be working late & won't be in the mood to cook!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I'm only rating the topping because I prepare my apples the way I would if I were making an apple pie. I was looking for a crisp apple topping similar to the one my mom made when I was a child & I've searched high and low trying dozens of recipes. Not using oats makes this into a sweet treat that compliments the tart apples perfectly- It has that classic apple crisp taste! I also never thought to cream the butter and sugars (1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 white) together FIRST and then add 1tsp cinnamon & flour. What a difference in the actual crumble. This will be my new go to recipe! Yum!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Really? This is very plain and doesn't taste a lot like alfredo sauce. All I could taste was parmesan. To try to make it taste a little better I added 1/4 c herb and garlic cream cheese and salt and pepper. It was good with the modifications... the way it was written produces a very boring taste.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Average at best. I was in search of some comfort food on this wet & yucky fall day & I chose this dish b/c of the high ratings. The meat was so bland & the gravy was a little salty.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Surprisingly delicious! I didn't use the flour that was called for, but other than that I followed this recipe exactly. Very easy, quick & full of flavour. I was surprised at the sweetness of the balsamic reduction! Yummy. I'll be making this again.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
One or two bites is all you really need! If you're looking for a chocolate overload/diabetic coma- this is it. I didn't use a trifle bowl, instead I used 10 wine glasses. The majority of people who tried it were blown away by how rich it was and agreed that next time we only need a shot glass. I used whipping cream in the pudding/custard instead of whipped topping. I think next time I will not use the condensed milk as it made the pudding very, very thick! Trifles are usually very light and fluffy, this was not. I was a little impatient and I tried some the night before... it was gross! I let it sit overnight (w/ my fingers crossed!) & the next day the flavours were well blended. It was delicious! I wouldn't really call this a trifle, due to the fact that the only 2 things in common are the layering & a need for refrigeration. This is more like a chocolate mousse cake, but yummy regardless. I'll make this again for a Girl's night where tons of chocolate is appreciated, but other than that it's not something I'd make very often. I prefer fresh tasting trifles!

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
September 2008: Perfect! I've made these biscuits w/o making any changes to the recipe. The only change I have made is that I grate the cold butter. I do that for all of my bread/crust recipes because, this way, it is a lot less time consuming to get the right texture. These taste similar to the Pillsbury packaged "Country biscuits" but much, much better for you! We eat these about once a week at my house. ------------------------- Update: (December 2008) Because I make these so often I always keep buttermilk in the fridge, but this time I was out *Gasp*. I substituted homemade using vinegar as suggested by some reviewers... ew. This batch of "homemade buttermilk" biscuits were so gross. To get the 5 star flavor its imperative that you use real buttermilk!! No substitutions.

Soul Smothered Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This is always a hit- I've made this about 5 times now. Its a great winter comfort food. The thing I do differently is that I use 1/2 the amount of butter and skinless, boneless chicken thighs. Other than reducing the fat, this really doesn't require any other changes! I serve it over mashed potatoes... its just perfection!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
Pretty average & tasted like flour. I'm an avid baker & I won't be making this again. The only reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because I did enjoy the sugar topping :) it was crunchy and delicious. I added cinnamon to the batter & had i not- I'm sure it would have tasted worse. Not good at all.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
This was excellent tasting & so easy to prepare. My husband loved it and claimed it was the best pasta he'd ever had. I've read a few reviews- and I have to say do NOT leave out the wine! It gives it such a rich kick! It's essential to the wow factor of this pasta dish. My only issue was that the chicken turned out overcooked the first time so I reduced the cooking time a little. This sauce tastes great with any pasta of your choice, we chose rigatoni! I also added green onions and mushrooms. Mmm thanks so much for a quick, delicious meal that will be served in our home for years to come!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I didn't care for these... they kind of left a funny after taste in my mouth. I halved the recipe- and it was still a huge amount! I baked it for 30 minutes- and it turned out great. The texture is nice and the first bite is yummy. Its just the weird after taste... Maybe its the bourbon vanilla I used or the huge amount of sugar? Oh well.. this is a good recipe, but not the best homemade brownies I've ever had.
