Cheesy Sour Cream and Salsa Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This dip was a hit at our New Year's Eve party. I was looking for something different to try and came across this recipe. After reading some reviews I made the following changes: Used 8 ounces sour cream and 8 ounces cream cheese. Drained the Rotel tomatoes and used 2 cups of cheddar cheese. I also used the entire package of dry ranch salad dressing. I baked in the oven at 350 for 20 mins. Next time I may even add some bacon pieces. Will be making again.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
I made this soup yesterday and I must say it was very good. I was looking for a soup that used wild rice and when I saw this recipe, I was determined to try it. Per other reviews I made the following changes: Used all chicken broth, used 5 T. butter, 1/2 cup flour and used milk. I first sauteed garlic, onion, carrots and mushrooms and added oregano and basil. I used Uncle Ben's Long Grain Wild Rice. YUM....

Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Made this dish for a party last night and it was a big hit. This is an easy dish to prepare. I made the chicken mixture earlier in the day, when ready to eat, I microwaved the chicken mixture for a couple of minutes and placed on bread and baked. The changes I made were: I used a store bought rotisserie chicken, a whole onion sliced, a whole red pepper sliced, a package of fajita seasoning mix, and 3/4 cup of tomato juice. I did not measure the amount of cheese I used either. Will be making again.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I thought this roast was delicious, although I wish it would have been more tender. I took a knife and pierced the meat so I could place some slivers of garlic into the meat. The garlic premeated throughout the roast. It came out medium which is how my husband likes it. I prefer medium rare. Will make again.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
First I will start off saying that if I had not added additional ingredients this dish would have been very bland. I am giving it five stars with the additions I made. I added a bag of frozen mixed veggies, sauteed mushrooms, garlic and onion and added, and added oregano and basil to the sauce. This dish came out very tasty.

Jalapeno Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
I made this for a NASCAR party last weekend and it was good but you have to like jalapenos. I think the concept was really good. I made another corn bread from the site also and that one was devoured.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
All I can say is WOW! This was sooo good. My husband especially liked the sauce and he doesn't usually care for it. After reading the reviews, I did the following: I used 3T butter amd 3T olive oil. Put the ham and swiss on the chicken and rolled up, coated in egg wash and rolled in Panko bread crumbs. Fried lightly for 3 mins. each side and placed in a baking dish. With the oven at 350, I placed the chicken in the oven to bake for 25 mins. While the chicken was baking, I mixed the wine, chicken bouillon, heavy cream/cornstarch in the pan with some dried basil (that's all I had on hand), and sauteed until thick, appx. 10 mins. Will definitely make this again many times.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
I tried this recipe last night for dinner and my dh and I loved it! This was so easy to make and the shrimp was cooked perfectly after 12 minutes. I halfed the recipe because I only had one pound of shrimp, but next time I will make the recipe as stated even with only one pound of shrimp. I used white wine in place of the lemon juice. Served over vermecelli. Delicious......

Blue Cheese, Bacon and Chive Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
These were fabulous! I used 1 1/2 inch thick Pork Loin chops so I baked in the oven for 1 hour @ 350 degrees. After reading reviews, I decided to use feta cheese. I cooked up 4 slices of Applewood thick smoked bacon and crumbled. I used a tablespoon of sour cream and a tablespoon of chive and onion cream cheese to the feta. I browned the chops in the bacon grease for one minute and then stuffed the chops and placed in the preheated oven. Yummy.....

Shrimp and Feta Cheese Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Very tasty dish. I read the reviews prior to making this meal and so I made the following changes. I used 1 cup wine and 1 can diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic. I did not add any dried oregano or basil. I used a 4 ounce container of crumbled garlic and herb feta cheese. I enjoyed the lightness of this meal and I will definitely make it again.

Chicken Valdostano

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. It has a great flavor and makes an excellent dish to serve to company. I didn't make any changes except to use 5 thin sliced chicken breasts, one small package of fresh mushrooms and 1 Tablespoon of dried parsley because that is what I had on hand. Next time I would like to thicken the sauce more so I will add some corn starch. Great recipe.

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
I am giving this 5 stars because my husband really liked them. I was a little disappointed. I will try again but next time I think I will slice the Gouda. I shredded it and I think it caused the cheese to dry out too much. My only change was to use dried parsley (its what I had on hand) and sauteed the chops in the bacon grease for flavor. Covered and baked in 350 degree oven for 15 mins and uncovered last 15 mins per other reviews. Will try again because my husband liked this dish so much.

Mushroom, Leek, Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
This soup is very tasty but I only used 1 teaspoon of Tabasco sauce and I thought it had a punch to it. Cannot believe people used so much in this dish. Anyway, I used only 1 leek, spinach and feta chicken sausage and spinach and cheese tortellini. Added a handful of shoestring carrots to give it some color. Very easy to make.

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
Let me first start by saying this recipe is fabulous. My husband and I loved the flavor of this dish. I doubled the champagne and heavy cream which was my first mistake. I was running late and did not read the reviews of how you need to boil the champagne longer than the recipe states so my sauce was too thin for our liking, but I cannot lower the rating because of my mistake. I will make again, but will boil the champagne longer to make the sauce thicker. Great recipe.
