Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
First off, when you peel your shrimp save the shells and boil them in about 5 to 8 cups of water. Bring to Boil and simmer for about 5 minutes then run through a strainer, reserving the water. Use this water in the soup and you won't believe the difference. I have been making a similar version to this soup for about 20 years. However, this one takes the cake! Other than the boiled shrimp shells I also left out the chicken and Ham. I doubled the shrimp to 2lbs and also added about 1.5lbs of white fish filets that I'd cut into bite sized pieces. Doesn't matter what kind of fish you use (just has to be white). I bought whatever was on sale at the fish market. Perfection in a bowl! I also made the jalepeno cornbread recipe that I found on this side. Crumble that into your bowl and it's amazing. WONDERFUL recipe! This is a must try for everyone. I guarantee it will make it into your personal recipe book as it has mine.

Muenster-Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Wow. I don't know where to begin. I'm giving this 2 stars only because it was SOOOOO SALTY! This is a heart attack waiting to happen and I had to pull all of the stuffing out to even eat the chicken. I seriously feel the need to guzzle a gallon of water as I type this. My face is puckering from all of the salt I just consumed. However, the basics are good and this could be a nice dish if tweaked. The salt is completely uncessary due to the salt in the massive amount of bacon called for. The creole seasoning is also 90% salt. I will make this again with the following changes. Completely omit all salt, use 1/2 of the bacon and use smoked gouda instead of whatever cheese is called for in this receipe. I will also cut the creole seasoning into at LEAST half. As far as the bread crumbs, use Panko. MUCH better. I'm now going to drink a gallon of water and try to recover from my salt attack meal.

No Peek Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
I have been making a similar version of no peek chicken for over 25 years. I saw this and thought I'd give it a try. I liked the spin of adding the white wine. After making and serving it for dinner tonight I have to give only 2 stars. Flavor was similar but chicken was very dry and the wine in the recipe added absolutely no additional flavor and gave us all incredible heart burn. The temp is too high I would omit the wine and replace with chicken broth. Reduced temperature to 325 and increase cooking time to 2 to 2.5 hours

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
Wonderful would be my first word and fattening would be my second. If you're in the mood to eat like a glutton and enjoy life for a day this is the meal for you. Seriously, though. It's incredible. My entire family loved it and asked for 2nd's. It was easy to make and good enough for company. Only change I made was double the sauce and pre-cooked the bacon before putting on top of chicken. To me, both are necessary or you'd simply have a greasy mess on your plate. All in all....Five Stars!

Chicken with Lemon-Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Honestly, I have absolutely no idea how this got such good ratings. We did not care for this and we love capers. Pass on this one!

Healing Cabbage Soup

N'Awlins Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Made this tonight and it was a hit! AND this is such a great recipe that it's good even if you're missing a lot of main ingredients. I didn't have Ham, didn't have Shrimp, didn't have celery or the File Powder. Still delicious. This one has been printed and is now in my "keeper" book. Next time I'll plan ahead and purchase all called for ingredients. I can't wait!

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Good recipe but all of the sauce made it so mushy. I will make again as the flavor was incredible. Next time I will cook eggplant patties in pan and serve over pasta dish rather than baking it with sauce.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Love this recipe! I made with chicken breasts cut up into bite sized cubes. A hint to cut down on prep time is to use frozen breasts cut when slightly frozen. Will cut prep time on this recipe in half. No need to cook an entire bird. Also cuts down on the fat without losing an bit of flavor. I added another dash or 2 of curry and a bit more spice but this is an excellent recipe. Thank you for sharing!

Spinach Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
I absolutely love this bread. If I'm making bread to go along with a meal this is my choice every single time. You can even slice it and make garlic bread with it. Wonderful!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Recipe was "okay" but not what I was looking for. Wanted more of a glaze. Too rich for my taste and you can't stack the cookies on top of each other.

Cream of Broccoli Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This recipe is exactly what I was looking for. I didn’t want the thickness, carbs or calories of a heavy cheesy soup as I’m on the diet from hell. I found this was a perfect solution for lunch. Packed with nutrients and very few carbs. Unlike others I didn’t find it to be too thin. You can’t make this thinking you’re making the traditional cream of broccoli cheesy soup. In my opinion it’s fabulous! Only change I made was add one additional carrot and used 1% milk to lower the fat. For those who still feel the soup is too thin for your taste add 1tbls of corn starch rather than the potato. Potato has around 30grams of carbs where the corn starch only has 7. Perfection in a bowl!

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Absolutely wonderful recipe. I used boneless chops that were about 1 1/2" thick. Cooked them on charcoal grill (lid closed and not too thick of a base of coals) 9 minutes on one side and 10 on the other. After I flipped them I added thinly sliced Roma Tomatoes and sprinkled a little more parsely on top. Other than that I didn't change a thing. Excellent recipe...I've printed it and it's been added to my book. Five stars!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

I have to give this 5 stars because it's simple to make and is absolutely wonderful. Just excellent! This is a keeper for me. Add a little crumbled bacon on the top of each bowl before serving.

Wonderful! If you make this lasagna don't fiddle with the recipe. It's perfection as written. Everyone raved about it and my Mother even asked me to email her a copy. Five stars, without a doubt.

Enchilada Casserole III

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I followed the recipe to a "T" and it was more work than I'd like to put into a casserole dish like this. Flavor was excellent but it had a mushy texture that I didn't like. It seemed more like something you should stuff a chili pepper with. I didn't like it as a main dish.

Savory Vegetable Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Just made this tonight and it was absolutely wonderful! I'm picky, picky, picky and I have only good things to say about this recipe. The only change I made was to add some corn, peas and green beans because I like a little color in my stew, but other than that I followed all directions. Excellent recipe.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This is a great idea for a meal but I can't give it 5 stars as it is. It needs Feta cheese and sun dried tomatoes to replace what is called for in the recipe. This is a basic "throw together because you have nothing else in the fridge" meal. It could be 5 starts with a little work.
