Spaghetti Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I made this tonight for dinner following other user's tips for replacing the pimentos and bell pepper with tomatoes, mushrooms and onions. I also added 1/2 cup of parmesan into the shredded cheese, and mixed whipping cream into the wine. I have to say that it turned out fabulous! My husband absolutely loved it! The only tip I can provide is that after I added the cheese on top for the additional 15 minutes, I found that the onions weren't done yet and cooked it at 350 degrees for an additional 15 minutes.

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
I made this for lunch today following the recipe exactly except I soaked the dried onion flakes in hot water until they were soft, and then chilled the egg salad for an hour and a half. It was absolutely wonderful! My hubby freaked out and begged for seconds because it was so good!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This was a VERY tasty recipe. I cut it in half after reading all reviews that it made too much. I followed the recipe except added frozed okra, minced garlic and cayenne pepper. After it simmered for awhile I felt that it needed a bit more salt, so I added garlic salt. What a great recipe! I never thought I would be able to get the hubby to eat cabbage soup, but he practically licked his bowl! (He added a slice of provolone cheese on the top of his bowl)

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Very good, I followed the recipe exactly, however, the first time I made it I tried another user's suggestion to pop it in the oven and it didn't turn out well at all. The second time I made it for a party I chilled the whole dish for a couple hours and it was a total hit! Everyone loved it.

Beans, Greens and Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Absolutely fantastic! You know when you are craving something and you can't put your finger on exactly what? Well, this soup was PERFECT! I used fresh, regular spinach and Great Northern White Beans and it was awesome!

Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
It was a great starter recipe, but I found the sauce to be too watery. I ended up adding more vegetables, including mushrooms and let it simmer for a bit to reduce. I will definitely make again, but I will add more spices and maybe waterchestnuts and cut down on the water that you add with the soy sauce.

Creamy Corn Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Hubby absolutely love it! I followed the recipe pretty much, except I added an extra can of creamed corn and extra cayenne pepper since we like our dishes a little on the spicy side :)

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly and it just didn't work for our tastes. I found the flavor strange.

Chicken Angelo

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
This is the second time I've made this dish and it is FABULOUS! My hubby was sick with the flu and this is the only thing he begged for. You can substitute other cheeses or Italian breadcrumbs and it still turns out great!

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
FABULOUS! Except that you have to cook the onions WAY longer than specified. I cooked yellow onions on medium for about 30 minutes. I used regular slices of white bread, toasted them in the toaster slightly, then put the cheese on top and broiled them for a minute. I didn't have oven safe bowls, so I just ladled the soup in a regular bowl and added the bread with the melted cheese. YUMMY!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Oh man, I took these to TWO separate parties and they were a hit BOTH times! I did as others suggested and put the stuffing into a ziploc bag with the corner cut off and it worked just fine. I also basted the outside of the mushrooms with melted butter so they wouldn't dry out.

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Last night was the second time I've made this. The first time I made a mistake and didn't add enough breadcrumbs and it fell apart. This time though, I made it with ground turkey (it still turns out excellent) and added enough Italian seasoned breadcrumbs and it was absolutely amazing! Not a single bit left in the pan.

No Time to Cook Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
If I would have made this recipe exactly as stated, I'm sure it wouldn't have turned out so great, like other reviewers have commented. However - I made a couple modifications and it turned out absolutely EXCELLENT! I made the base recipe following the original instructions, except I seasoned the chicken with garlic salt, pepper and paprika. I sliced up a white onion, (not chopped) placed half the onion slices in the bottom of the crockpot, placed the chicken on top, then put the rest of the onions on top of the chicken. I mixed low fat crm of mush. soup & crm of chicken soup in a bowl, added a little milk until it was smooth, and then mixed in a can of diced tomatos & a can of sliced mushrooms. I poured that over the chicken and onions, and sprinkled garlic salt, pepper and paprika on the top of everything. Since it was just for me and my husband, I only use 3 pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I turned the crockpot on high, it only took 2 1/2 to cook. I served over egg noodles. I'm not kidding. This is one of the BEST dinners I have ever made! The sauce was excellent and the chicken was really really moist and tender. My husband basically licked his plate, and as I'm writing this review, he's over there eating another helping!

Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Excellent!!!! I didn't have arugula, I just sauteed fresh baby spinach with olive oil and minced garlic until it was wilted, took it off the burner, mixed in the goat cheese until it was slightly melted, then added the tomatoes and pasta. Like others, I sprinkled Parmesan on it too. It was REALLY good!

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
EXCELLENT!!! I used frozed mixed veggies, frozen chopped onions, a can of mushrooms and a can of chicken. I boiled that in chicken broth and a can of cream of chicken soup. I let that reduce, then added the flour and milk. Like others, I baked the bottom crust for 8 min, then added the chicken mixture and the top crust and baked for 375 for 40 min. It turned out perfect!!!! None left!!!!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Yep. Everyone was right. These are amazing. My boyfriend is THE pickiest eater ever, so I was reluctant to try something new. But he loved them and told me I could put this into our rotation. I followed other reviewers suggestion to use only 1/3 cup of olive oil, and half the salt. Everything else I followed exactly. Seriously, these are awesome!

Pork Chops in Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This recipe turned out fantastic! The only things that I did different - I used red wine instead of white because that's what I had on hand, and added a can of Italian stewed tomatoes and a can of crushed tomatoes. I browned the chops in garlic salt, pepper, olive oil, butter, minced garlic and fresh herbs. I put sliced sweet onion, pork chops, three more sprigs of fresh herbs and sauce in the crock pot and cooked on high for four hours. It turned out delicious!!!

Brie Cheese Appetizer

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Love it! Just like everyone else has said, this tastes amazing! I used the non perforated crescent rolls and several spoon fulls of apricot. I cut the dough in half. I used one half on the bottom and draped the other half across the top of the brie. I smashed all of it together and bunched it on the top. Unlike the recipe says, to put the seam on the bottom, I felt it worked better to keep the seam on the top. I brushed all of the dough liberally with egg white and I had no leakage. It turned out perfect.

Best Chicken Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Excellent!! I followed other reviewers and added dry ranch dip mix to the sour cream, marinated the chicken in it for a couple hours in the fridge, then added some spices to the crushed cereal. I baked it covered w/ foil for 40 min, then 20 min uncovered. It turned out fabulous!
