Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
YUM!! The only change I made to the recipe was to leave the chicken unbreaded simply because I didn't have any breadcrumbs on hand. I served with mashed potatoes and there was plenty of sauce to top them as well. Can't wait to eat it again!

I tripled this recipe and made it for a big birthday party. I got several requests for the recipe and many compliments. This will be my bean recipe from now on. Delicious!

This is my "go-to" pasta salad recipe...everyone loves it! I usually fill it with the asiago cheese, pepperoni, olives and roasted red peppers. Always prepare the dressing as written. Delicious!!

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Awesome and so easy! I used a couple of tablespoons of the sauce when making the mousse to make it a little more raspberry flavored. I served mine in wonton cups I had brushed with butter, sprinkled with sugar and baked in mini-muffin tins until golden brown. I garnished with a drizzle of the sauce and shaved white chocolate. They were a hit at our tea party.

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
OMG!! Sooo good! I didn't have green onions so I used diced red onion instead, and I followed other reviewers and microwaved the sweet potato before adding it to the mixture. If you want them spicy then add more jalapenos or use a spicier pepper. I added to the sauce making it with a full cup of reduced fat sour cream, zest of one lime, juice of 1/2 a lime, 1 minced jalapeno and a handful of chopped cilantro. Even my 2 and 4 year olds loved this recipe!

Thai Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
Yummy!! I only made a couple of changes to the original recipe. First of all I halved the recipe. I used ground turkey instead of the chicken because that's what I keep on hand. I used fresh bread crumbs instead of the panko (when I think panko I think crunchy coating, not burger filler). I didn't use quite enough though (1 slice), my burgers didn't hold together very well. I used 2 garlic cloves, stuck with 2 tbsp each of green onions and parsley and used 1 tablespoon thai chili sauce in place of the hot sauce. All other ingredients were halved. Lots of great flavor, and not really spicy. I was concerned about using all mayo for the sauce and didn't have any sour cream so I used 3 parts mayo to 1 part coconut milk and added the mint and coconut as directed. It turned out great! I pan fried about 6 minutes per side over med-high heat. Great recipe, thanks!!

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I've never had authentic Indian Butter Chicken, but this is so yummy! I couldn't find tandoori masala so I made my own. For the recipe, check out my profile. Didn't alter anything in the recipe, perfect as it. Beware though, it's addictive!!

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Perfection

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
Great chicken, lots of flavor! I altered orginal recipe slightly for simplicity. I'm not a big fan of spinach so I used half a package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry. Instead of making my own breadcrumbs I used Panko (gives a nice texture), mixed with the Parmesan and thyme. I mixed in 1 tablespoon of melted butter to the breadcrumbs to increase toasting. I used baby bella mushrooms and just rough chopped them and cooked with the green onions until both were tender, I added the garlic after removing the pan from the heat so it didn't become bitter. I butterflied the chicken breasts and pounded them thin; stuffed with a large scoop of the filling and folded over...no need to roll the chicken and toothpick. Restaurant quality!!

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
I made this recipe with a loin roast instead of the tenderloins, I still had to adjust the cook time. I didn't add water to the apple butter mixture as it didn't really seem to need it. After the meat was finished I made a sauce by thickening the juices left in the roaster as was recommended by another user. The sauce was really the best party. My whole family from a 1 year old, 2 todddlers, myself and my husband all scarfed it down!

Baked Falafel

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Perfect! I made them as written except I doubled the recipe and skipped the stove-top step. I scooped them out onto a lightly oiled baking pan and baked them about 15 minutes. They held together beautifully and taste wonderful on a warm pita. Thanks for sharing!

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I'm not an expert on Thai food but I thought this sauce was great with Chicken Satay and later stirred into noodles. I did start with only 1 cup of peanut butter, but I stayed with 1/2 cup of coconut milk. I did use 3 tablespoons of water as directed, if you want a thinner sauce I would add more water, coconut milk is too thick to thin the sauce. I didn't have fish sauce so I used extra soy sauce. Also I used Thai Chili Sauce (a sweet and spicy, syrupy kind of sauce) in place of the hot sauce (I used about 3 tablespoons). Everything else I did as directed...makes a bunch though, unless you plan on using it for several things you might want to only make half!!

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I used the recipe as a base and made several additions to our family's tastes. In addition to the ingredients listed I added 1 diced onion, 3 cloves garlic, basil and oregano to meat when browning. I added an undrained can of italian stewed tomatoes and a pinch of red pepper flakes. I mixed the noodles with the meat sauce. To the cheese mixture I added 1 clove garlic, parsley, minced green onions, pepper and a handful of grated parmesan. I layered the pasta/sauce on bottom and spread the cheese mixture over the top. I then topped with mozzarella, provolone and additional parmesan to continue the italian theme. A creamy, hearty dish. Rich and filling. My entire family loved it including my 3 year old twins and 1 year old. Made enough for our family of 5 with leftovers.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
I think this recipe is perfect just as it is written. It is full flavored and because it is balsamic chicken make sure you use good balsamic vinegar!

Caribbean Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
This is an awesome, flavorful and moist burger! I did make a couple of changes...I used fresh breadcrumbs instead of dry, I used cilantro in place of the parsley, I added a bit of olive oil to the meat mixture and I used 2 tablespoons of Jerk Seasoning (I use Pampered Chef Jamaican Jerk Seasoning). These are great served on a bun with sliced mango and red onion or as patties topped with avacado mango salsa!!

Avocado Mango Salsa

Thai Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I'm not a Thai expert but I think this recipe turned out great. I only made a couple of modifications...I used soy sauce in place of the fish sauce as it's not something I keep around. I also didn't have chili oil so I used a pinch of red pepper flakes. I used chicken tenders and didn't skewer them...mine marinated for about 2 days (I trim meat and put it in marinade when I get home from the store and then freeze or refrigerate). I cooked my under the broiler for about 4 minutes per side. Very moist and tender and full of flavor. I didn't use the garnishes but there is cilantro in the peanut sauce I made. "The Best Thai Peanut Sauce"...see my reviews for notes on modifications I used for that recipe.

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Delish!! The only alteration I made was to use fresh basil instead of cilantro. I used reduced fat feta to make it even healthier. Will make again and again!

Southwest Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
Great Burgers!! I used ground turkey instead of the sausage, and I didn't have any chili powder so I used Pampered Chef Southwestern Seasoning (about 1 tablespoon), also increased the cumin a little. Added 1 can of chopped green chilis and a handful of fresh breadcrumbs. The burgers wouldn't have held up to the grill but cooked up nicely in a pan on the stovetop in about 5-6 minutes per side. They didn't have sliced smoked cheddar at my grocery store so I used Chipotle Cheddar (Sargento brand), and it was nice and smoky and added extra bite. No extra condiments needed!!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
My husband adored this recipe! I thought it was pretty good myself, but a little sweet for my taste. Might try cutting down the amount of sugar next time. Overall great flavor!
