Zucchini Boats on the Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
How can people say this is time consuming? I make grilled zucchini al the time and time consuming it is not. Throw it in the microwave for 5 minutes when done scoop out very little. Then throw it on the grill. Baste it with butter and garlic. When done flip over add bacon bread crumbs and cheese. Close the grill and in 2 more minutes you have heaven. Ok, now onto this recipe. I made it exactly as written. It was good and different. The only reason I give 4 stars is because I hate soggy bacon. Next time I will put it on the last few minutes.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
Oh wow!! One of the first recipes I did not change a thing.. And followed the exact directions.. So Amazing!! served with TriTip sandwiches and the meal was out of this world! Yes, it's full of salt but I am one of those few that would rather live and eat instead of being miserable with bland foods..

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
I only rate recipes I love and this is one of them. My hubby seeks out Tortilla Soup at restaurants and is never happy with the outcome. I happened to come across this recipe and now its a staple in our house. Its such a versatile recipe. I have made it by the directions exactly the first time and then the second I added more cumin, cayenne pepper and green chills. It made the recipe even better. I always boil my chicken, shred it and add it to the onions with garlic, celery and carrots. Then season them with the cumin chili powder and garlic powder. Then I add the broth green chills rice and corn, Thank you so much for an easy changeable recipe!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
Wow, you nailed it! My mom made this all the time while growing up. And we always begged for it. Meredith has it spot on. Except a few things. Double it, add 1 tbs of ginger. No salt! Soy sauce has enough. Here is the key. Grab your party wings and marinate them all day. Then use the remaining marinade to baste the chicken. Yummy!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
I have been making this same recipe for years but never thought to use Olive oil. I usually use butter and then sauté garlic in butter then dip the chicken in that and then again in a mix of Parmesan cheese and Italian bread crumbs. I top with mozzarella for chicken Parmesan. This time I did not want an Italian meal so I followed this recipe only thing I changed was using Italian bread crumbs and topped with cheddar cheese. It was yummy.

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
I have never made Mac and Cheese before and this was simple and easy to follow. I did not use velveta because it's one cheese I do not like. I replaced it with some fresh Parmesan. Instead of layering I sautéed the onions in the butter flour mixture. Then added the cheeses. Very similar to the sauce I use for potatoes. I then mixed in the macaroni. Topped with cheese and breadcrumbs and it turned out fabulous.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I rarely rate recipes on this site and I have been using it every day for years. This recipe is amazing! Wow!! I made it just as directed. The only thing I added was garlic and doubled the cheese. Not really a modification, we just love cheese. I would never put ricotta in this.. Ricotta is grainy and yuck. The sour cream gave it a rich and creamy texture.. Whatever you do don't follow LP's advice. I did cover it the entire time it baked and it was not dry at all. Very yummy and the entire family went back for more. This is a keeper. I may try with sausage next time to give it more of a bite. Thank you!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This is a must in our house. I am a salt lover so I have no problems with salty food. I have made it several ways and this is the best I have come up with. Mix the teriyaki sauce half and half with ketchup. Fry the bacon and then brown the chicken in the bacon grease. Transfer to oven and brush with teriyaki mixture. Let cook 5 minutes and brush again at this time add the ranch. Cook 10 more minutes add the cheese and bacon for the last 5 minutes of cooking then sprinkle with green onions. Muah Perfect!

Pasta Siciliano

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I use this site daily and never comment. I like to try a new recipe every week. My husband also likes to eat a meatless meal once a week. I am always searching for yummy meatless recipes. This hit it on the nose. This dish is so simple and fabulous! I added mushrooms and fresh parmisan cheese. I skipped the feta as I think feta is flavorless. I also skipped the red pepper flakes. I added kalmata olives instead of black. This dish is beautiful and so yummy! I ate the leftovers for 3 straight days. Serve this dish with a salad and bread and you have one great meal! It is a new staple in our house.

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
I make this when I need a quick dinner. The way I make it is similar. I double the garlic and butter half it. Dredge the Chicken in it. Coat with italian bread crumbs. Put chicken in a baking dish, Pour the remaining butter mixture on top. Halfway through cooking flip the chicken and put shaved parmesan cheese on the top. Yummy and Garlicky.

Killer Artichokes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Just one word Fantastic! Artichokes are my fav.. I grew up on them My normal way to eat them is steam them and then dip them in mayonaise wich I am also love. My hubby hates artichokes because he thinks they are an excuse to eat straight mayonaise. I cook with shallots alot and I always have some on hand and I was out of mayonaise so I browsed on this site and found this recipe. Anything with garlic rates high in my book. And this was just amazing wow I will never look at mayonaise the same way again.
