Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
This was a great base recipe. I did sear it first and then cooked my 2lb roast for approx. 50 min. Because of this I put my parboiled potatoes (and carrots) in right at the beginning with the roast. I think it would have been better with some type of gravy though.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
I used this recipe as a glaze for boneless skinless chicken. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and cooked the sauce on the stove with a little cornstarch. I also added hot sauce. I then coated the chicken and baked on 375 for 30 minutes. I would recommend going for 40 minutes next time, covering for the last 15 or so because my glaze did start to burn.

Apple Braised Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
I have never braised before. What a great recipe to experiment on! Only issue was the gravy. It was a little sweet for us. It gave great flavor to the pork while cooking though!

Comforting Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
This was a great meal. I recommend seasoning the chicken before cooking. Was out of cream of mushroom so I made cream of chicken. I also threw in some frozen mixed veggies and some shredded cheese before baking.

Stuffed Mexican Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
This recipe was great. I used ground turkey and brown rice. I also added in some mexicorn and black beans for a Tx-Mex feel. I was out of tomato sauce so I used canned tomatoes and some salsa.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
This was a great recipe. I added a little lime zest into the rub and used a grill pan to cook the chicken. I still added the lime juice and garlic powder on at the end. YUM!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
As is this recipe gets 3 stars. It is missing spice/flavor. By adding some poultry seasoning, garlic, celery, salt and pepper, as well as some veggies (peas and carrots)--it would get 5 stars. I agree with other reviewers--the biscuits needed 2 hours cook time.

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
Is was a good recipe but needed more. I slow cooked the chicken with stock, cumin, and chili powder. I agree you need more oil than the recipe says. It also needed longer in the oven to be crispy. I used the picante sauce but it needed something creamy too--queso fresco, sour cream, avocado dressing--something because corn tortillas are on the dry side.

Turkey Ragu with Fontina and Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
My husband LOVED this! I used ground chicken (it was on sale) and whole wheat pasta. I didn't have fontina so I used mozzarella. Would be great with some red pepper flakes for a kick.

Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
This recipe was SO good! I added an extra boullion cube because I thought it was a little bland. I definitely want to try this with peas next time. I seasoned the chicken with Mrs. Dash and sauteed it and used the same pan for this recipe. I also only used half the amount of butter--no need for an entire stick!

Risotto with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
I think with practice this will be really good. My rice wasn't as creamy as I've had before but that was execution, not recipe. I sauteed garlic with the onion and then added a little thyme, rosemary, and garlic powder (garlic lover!) and doubled the amount of asparagus. Next time I will roast the asparagus for a richer flavor. I think it definitely needs a lot of spice/seasoning--if not it was really bland. LOTS of salt was needed also.

Mexican-Style Goulash

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Great meal. Pretty much American Chop Suey, Mexican style. I used a full can of Mexicorn (with peppers) instead of regular and used double the chili powder and the same amount of cumin.

Italian Chicken and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I LOVED this meal. I would rate it 5 stars BUT the amount of spice is far too high. I'm a big fan of spicy but I cut the cayenne & red pepper flakes in half and it still had quite the kick. I would definitely recommend this and will be cooking again, just with about 1/2 the spice. I served with a small side of pasta but I found it held up great without it.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
The chicken came out great but the sauce was WEIRD (and not in a good way). Sweet but tangy...just not our style. I used diced tomatoes instead of stewed b/c I heard stewed made it a little sweeter. Still not a huge fan...

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
I really liked the flavor from the bell peppers. Into the saute I added about 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes and an extra clove of garlic. I used fat free sour cream so the sauce was a little thinner. Based on others' suggestions I used 1/2 cup of broth, added a pinch of oregano & basil, and cut the cayenne to 1/2tsp. Your sauce will be thin at first until you put the parmesan cheese in it. I would also recommend not rinsing your pasta--the extra starch serves as a great thickener.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
The pie is delicious. It took a little bit longer than stated but maybe by 5-8 minutes. I covered the edges of the pie crust after about 25-30 minutes to avoid burning. I also used 1 3/4 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice instead of the ginger/cloves/cinnamon, as stated on the Libby's can for substitution. Serve with whipped topping!

Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
The gravy in this dish is delicious! I used Bell's seasoning instead of the rosemary/savory . The pork was a little tough but I think it was my choice of using a pork chop cut into medallions. Definitely a great recipe. Double the gravy for yummy mashed!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
YUM! I followed others' suggestions of adding the cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla in my batter, as well as substituting oil for the melted butter. The crumble is delicious. Took about 23 minutes for mine to cook in unlined cupcake tin.
