Mediterranean Puff Pastry Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
This was excellent! The only addition I made was to add toasted pinenuts. I also cut the chicken into strips. Will absolutely make this again.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I made this for my daughter, whose boyfriend was having a beer tasting party. She is not really one to pass out compliments, but made sure to let me know that everyone made a fuss over the chili. She said that she overheard several people saying, "Have you tasted the chili? Oh my God!" She said several people went back for thirds. I omitted the celery, added extra beans and used fresh jalapenos. Simmered two hours, placed in crock pot and placed in fridge overnight. Plugged in the crock pot next day and let heat on low for about 5 hours. When I tasted it to adjust seasonings, it didn't need anything...just tasted "smooth". I sent tortilla chips, cheese and sour cream to put out with it. No need for another chili recipe.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Used the base recipe and added additional veggies that I had on hand. Sauteed veggies (onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, asparagus) turned off the pan and added spinach to wilt. Crumbled bacon and added. I also added hot sauce to the batter. It reminded me a little of a spinach pizza.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This recipe is very, very similiar to my own version. I add garlic to the onions while onions are cooking, I use beef and chicken stock from the carton instead of canned, omit the vinegar and add my secret ingredient --- a cup of coffee!!!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
I usually make my own BBQ sauce, but came across this one and decided to try it since it is similiar to the one I make. It is delicious! I added some crushed red pepper flakes because I like it a tad on the spicey side. In my own sauce, I add coffee. I think I missed that layer of flavor in this recipe, but this was so good.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Sauteed celery and carrots with onion on stove then placed in the slow-cooker with chicken. Used chick stock instead of water. Rolled biscuit dough with rolling pin and cut into strips. Pretty yummy!

All Day Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I made this because it looked easy, but being the spice lover I am, added some red pepper flakes, mustard, fresh ground pepper and parm cheese. My slow cooker is huge and has mulitple settings. Cooking it on low for 5 hours is perfect.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
Made as written would rate 5 stars. With my additions due to family's personal preference rates it higher! Didn't have raisins, so used Craisins, added a handful of chopped pecans and a handful of chocolate chips. My teenaged daughter loved it because it wasn't sicky sweet like most cookies. My husband liked it because I don't enjoy baking but made these!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Every recipe I've tried has been a 4 or 5 stars. I followed this recipe exactly as written. My ingredients were fresh, so I know that's not the problem. They were not at all what I was expecting. I'll stay with my own recipe. UPDATE 4/19/09: Just wanted to say that I have tried these again, but instead of rolling the biscuits, I barely kneaded them while still in the bowl(maybe twice) and just broke off pieces the size of a lemon, rolled in a ball and lightly pressed them in the pie tin. They were so much better this time. Also, if you are using salted butter, definitely decrease the amount of salt in the recipe. When I made these the first time, I feel like the high humidity where I lived prevented the biscuits from rising properly.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
These made awesome mini subs for appetizers during an afternoon of watching football. Like others, I added provolone cheese, melted under the broiler and made a dressing of mayo and horseradish. YUM, yum, yum.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Found this recipe about an hour ago. Was very skeptical about chips made in the mircrowave, so decided to go make them right then and there. Oh my goodness these are soooooo good. Coated some with EVOO, then just sprayed the rest with cooking spray to save on calories. You cannot tell the difference! Sprinkled sea salt and pepper for one batch, caynenne for one batch, dill and salt for the other batch. I cut mine as thin as humanly possible and they took slightly over 3 minutes. What a delightful surprise!

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
This was a great base for lentil soup. I did use chicken stock instead of water, and added a tad of cumin and one large potato cut in chunks. I also cut the other veggies into chunks as well. If you cut them too small they practically disappear by the time the lentils are finished cooking which was one and a half hours. Used balsamic vinegar because that's all I had. Served with cornbread---very hearty meal on a cold, rainy night.

Asian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
Having just purchased a beautiful assortment of mushrooms, I wanted to make mushroom soup and found this recipe. I usually have to majorly doctor up recipes for taste, but this one is good. The soup is so versitle, so my changes were minor--Used shrimp instead of chicken and added hot sauce. Also used more broth. I am living in China at the moment and this is as good as I've eaten in any restaurant.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Other than doctoring-up the cream cheese with herbs, I made this as written. Very tasty! I can't wait to play around with various stuffing ingredients. I made multi colored bow-tie pasta alfredo with lots of mushrooms, spinach and garlic and they went very well together.

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
First time I made this, I made exactly as written since I was only making it for me. Since then, I provide the eggs mixed with water in the mug, and then provide various breakfast meats, cheeses, and veggies and spices to accommodate the personal preferences of the family/guests. That way,each person gets to personalize their mug. Serve with warm tortillas on the side.

Dutch Babies II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I had never heard of Dutch Babies before! Made this for my husband and he really loved it. I added cinnamon and powdered vanilla to the mix, and then served with syrup on the side. Do you know he ate the entire pan of this by himself? That dedinitely rates 5 stars...he's kinda picky.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This probably rates 4.5 stars. I made this dressing yesterday, adjusting it to serve 12. Today I ate a salad with it and it was good, but may get better the longer it sits. There's just a little something missing and I can't quite put my finger on it. I think I will just adjust my ingredients a little more to my liking and add some red pepper flakes. But overall it's so much better than ANY bottled dressing out there. UPDATE: I made this again over the weekend and finally made it to my liking. I decreased the red wine vinegar by 1/3 cup and included 1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar. I also accidently added more black pepper than the recipe called for, but hey, it worked for me. I ate this on a veggie sandwich yesterday and could've eaten it straight out of the bottle.
