Apple Pan Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
This was very good. I made it as written except I omitted the thyme and I subbed walnuts and cranraisins for the pine nuts and currants. I think the pine nuts would of been better especially if they were toasted and chopped. I also chopped the cranraisins. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before sauteing. I thickened the pan juices with a little water and cornstarch. My apples of choice were 2 golden delicious and 1 red delicious. I served this over white rice. Keep the salt shaker handy. I had to salt it while eating. This recipe is a nice combo of sweet and spicy.

I was surprised at how good this was! I didn't add the raisins and I used white bread buns. I would make this again!

Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
This was VERY good! I love the smokiness from the bacon. This dish has a nice sweet/savory balance. I made it as written except I added some grated parmesan cheese and served this over egg noodles as a main dish. I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch.

Spicy Korean Red Pepper Cucumbers

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
This was very good even though I made changes to it. I couldn't find Korean hot sauce so I used Frank's hot sauce. I also used a yellow onion instead of green. I also added 1 tsp of sugar as suggested by another member. I liked the contrast of flavors between the hot sauce and the sesame oil. This dressing was not too spicy, which I also liked. I will definitely be making this again.

Italian Chicken Sausage Stuffed Portabellas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
I really loved this recipe! I love creamy foods and this one was creamy, flavorful and hearty! I used fat free plain cream cheese and added fresh minced onions and chives to it. The only other change I made was to saute the sausage with fresh garlic and I used shredded provolone instead of parmesan cheese!

Chicken Alfredo Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
I made this tonight and my family totally loved it! I had to make some changes because my kids are picky eaters, so I subbed peas and spinach for the mushrooms and broccoli. I also doubled the recipe! The brand of jarred alfredo sauce I used was Ragu and it was very good! I don't usually used jarred sauces, so I'll probably make the alfredo from scratch, next time, to cut down on the fat. This was a creamy, hearty, chicken and biscuit casserole that will be made often in my house!

Shot Glass Cream Cheese Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I love shot glass desserts! I often order them in restaurants, so I was happy to try this one! I tweaked it to become an 'Almond Joy' flavored dessert because I'm on an 'Almond Joy' candy bar kick lately! I only made 2 servings. I lightened up the cheese by using 1/2 cream cheese(fat free) and 1/2 ricotta cheese. I also added a few drops of almond and coconut extracts to get that 'Almond Joy' flavor. I also topped it with sweetened shredded coconut and chocolate chips. This was soooo good that I wished it was larger than a shot glass! YUM!

Herdez Beer Bread and Jelly

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
OMG!!! This was so VERY good! I've been looking for a really good beer bread recipe for a LONG time and I found it with this one! I doubled the Herdez cooking sauce as Paula suggested to get more heat and it was great! Not spicy at all, just a slight bit of heat! I added 4 less tablespoons of beer because of the extra cooking sauce which made for the perfect few sips I wanted while this was baking! I loved how tall this baked up! And the flavor was lovely...nice hint of beer, slightly sweet and slightly spicy! I will be making this ALOT! I'm adding my photo! Thanks Paula!

Out of this World Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This was very good! I made it as written except I used regular broccoli...I couldn't find the alien kind! And I used all wagon wheel, no spiral. I may add some green onion next time...just for more flavor! I did use the black olives, as suggested, and it went very well with this salad!

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
I never made a tuna casserole because the thought of eating warm, canned, tuna fish, with pasta, just didn't appeal to me. I finally decided to try it because I had 2 cans of tuna fish that were taking up pantry space for way too long! To my surprise, I loved it! I did make some changes for personal preference. I added 1 tsp. liquid smoke and 2 large cloves of crushed garlic. I love the slight smokey flavor with the tuna. I sauteed the onions and garlic in 1 Tbls of butter. I also used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for helping me overcome my tuna casserole fear!

Roasted Fan-Shaped Potatoes

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
This is a fun way to serve a baked potato! There's alot of prep involved because of all the slicing! But I like it because it's unique! I didn't use the breadcrumbs and I used alot more salt! I removed 1 slice of potato from each potato to give the potato more room to fan out! And I only needed to bake it fot 1 hour. Placing a wooden spoon on each side of the potato during slicing is a great idea, as mentioned by other members! It really helps to make the slices without cutting through the bottom on the potato! I served mine with fresh chopped chives and some sour cream on the side!

Candy Crunch

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
White chocolate and pretzels are always good, especially when you add in cranraisins! Sorry Eagle Brand...I didn't use your sweetened condensed milk, because I didn't have any. The candy was great even without it!

Spiced Coconut Coffee

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
I loved this coffee! It was a very unique, flavorful cup of coffee! I adapted this recipe for a single serve, instant, decaf, coffee method because I'm the only coffee drinker in the house! It worked perfectly! This is what I did...I brewed a cup of instant coffee in the microwave. Then in a tea bag sleeve I added the following spices as listed in the recipe...1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves. I dipped this into my coffee and let it steep for 2 minutes. Removed the spice filled tea bag and added the honey and coconut milk. I also added 3 drops of coconut extract for extra coconut flavor! This was exactly what I wanted! I'll be drinking this alot from now on!

GOYA® Easy Arroz con Pollo

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This was very good for a quick meal! I tweaked it to suit our tastes! I used 3 boneless chicken breasts cut into strips. I doubled the olive oil using 1 Tbls. to brown the chicken and 1 Tbls. to sauté the veggies. I doubled the green pepper and used chicken broth instead of water. I used 3 cloves fresh garlic instead of jarred. I doubled the Spanish olives and the peas. And I cooked the peas with the rice instead of adding them raw on top at the end! The chicken was so tender and juicy with lots of flavor from the adobo and flavored yellow rice! I will definitely be making this more often!

Grandma's Corn Flake Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
These macaroons were excellent! I made them exactly as written! But I did crush the cornflakes a little because they were very large flakes. The macaroons were crunchy and sweet. I love the addition of the cornflakes because it keeps the macaroons from being too coconutty. I only got about 20 macaroons from this recipe. I will definitely double the batch next time! Great easy recipe!

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
I make this often...we call it 'Amazing Beef Sandwiches'...it's that good! I use a rump roast and sliced jarred pepperoncini (Mild). I serve it on kaiser rolls! The beef has so much flavor and just melts in your mouth! I make beef barley soup with the leftovers! This is a must try recipe!

Firecrackers

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This was very good! I had to use 'Andy Capp's Hot Fries' because the store didn't have the hot Cheetos. I coated them individually in the white chocolate and sprinkled them with cayenne pepper to make them as hot as the Cheetos. These are so addicting! I can't stop eating them! I will be trying it again when I find the hot Cheetos!
