Sopapilla Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
this turned out better than I expected. I went the butter+sugar+cinnamon for the glaze. I used the sheet of dough and pretty much just laid it in a 8x11 pan so I didn't have to even roll it out. Made it really easy. lost a star simply because it doesn't keep/reheat as lovely, but that probably can't be helped.

Chicken a la Good

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
made this tonight. had to substitute cheddar for swiss when I realized my intended cheese had molded, but otherwise followed recipe. Layered instead of rolled, for simplicity. Turned out well... I thought it was average, hubby thought it was pretty good. I'd try it again, especially with another cheese.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
skipped the parsley, and used (skinless) breasts instead of thighs. 20 minutes wasn't quite enough, but I was on "lo" rather than "hi." turned out fabulous, perfect for a chicken caesar salad, and would definitely make again! I brushed on more butter and turned breasts every 5 min or so.

Italian Style Flounder

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
tried this one last night. Followed exactly except I used Rotel instead of regular tomatoes, since I needed to use it up. I didn't think the combination of seasonings did much for the fish.

Dave's Mocha Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
I also went with 1/4c soy sauce and 2/3c coffee. I used dry sherry instead of cooking sherry. I also used two chicken breasts instead of the legs, and used a minimum of oil in the pan (and I'd go no oil in the marinade next time). I added about a teaspoon of minced garlic and a couple dashes of cayenne pepper to the marinade. I had some trouble thickening the sauce (even with cornstarch, but I was conservative), but after it was cool it was nice and thick. The flavor itself was great, and I'll certainly make it again!

Sesame Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
I marinated overnight. Baked at 350 for 20 minutes, otherwise followed to the letter. It was okay. I was expected more flavor, but it was my first time cooking with sesame oil, so maybe I was not expecting accurately. Husband liked the nutty flavor. not a repeat in our home.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
I made this tonight using olive oil instead of butter, and I only had 3 tilapia fillets. Still, my husband and I both thought it had very little flavor (and I went heavy on the garlic). Not a keeper.

Zesty White Wine Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I used pepper, no salt. I used 3/4 lb fresh, and about 3/4 cup white wine (moscat I think). I also spritzed some lemon on at the end, as other reviewers suggested. They were okay. The guests enjoyed them, my husband and I were so-so and feel like we like some other recipes on this site better.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010

Spinach Muenster Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I used 3 eggs, a 6oz bag of fresh spinach that I sauted and drained, and no salt, but otherwise followed directions. Wasn't done at 35, so put it back in for 10 minutes. It was barely set, next time I'd put it in longer anyway. It was great tho, both my husband and I enjoyed it greatly.

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
I cubed the chicken instead of making it strips. I only had about 8 oz spinach, and I left out the tomatoes because my husband doesn't care for them. Added a tablespoon of minced garlic, a tablespoon of ground black pepper, and a packet of Italian dressing mix like another rater suggested. Turned out pretty good. keeping the recipe and planning to make again... might add red pepper flakes or something to get more flavor out of it.

Parmesan Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
I cut the recipe in half. But I still only had about 8 oz of spinach and a hair under 1/2 c parmesan cheese. I don't think mine really browned, but I took them out after 17 minutes. They were done and tasty. rather salty tho, and I didn't add any salt at all. would consider making them again, but probably not, since the draining of the spinach frustrates me.

Superfast Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I used Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning, and just sprinkled some on, didn't bother measuring out a teaspoon. was a great way to cook up a fast vegetable, and asparagus is popular in our house so will make it that was again.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
used unsalted butter instead of margarine. used a mixture of 1 cup 1% milk and 1 cup heavy whipping cream instead of half-and-half. used 2/3 cup green onions. used just under a cup of wild rice. used 1/2 cup flour instead of 3/4. used 1/4 tsp pepper instead of 1/8 tsp. added about 8 chopped baby carrots in with the onions and rice at the beginning. turned out delicious; my husband said it was the best soup I've made. next time would add more pepper (or perhaps the wild rice seasoning mix).

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I used a 7.5 pound bone-in breast, it was still done in about 7 hours. I also sliced an onion and added it in the beginning, and did 7 strips of bacon instead of 5. About halfway through cook time I added a can of turkey broth because it was looking a little dry. It was fantastic, definitely one of the better turkeys I've had. If I do a small Thanksgiving next year, I might reuse this recipe for that occasion.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
this was the first banana bread I made, but not the first I've eaten. I was surprised how many bananas it took to hit 2 1/3 cups. I only had 5, so had to supplement (thanks other users for suggestions on that!). I used light brown sugar and baked for 65 minutes. turned out okay, I guess. made it for a potluck, every single person complimented it. I guess I was just expecting more flavor from other reviews.

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
made this on a whim this morning. followed recipe exactly, except substituted 1/2 tbsp dried minced basil leaves instead of fresh. I thought it was okay, nothing I'd make for company. The mozzarella flavor came through nicely. My husband thought the basil was heavy. He would try it again with less basil.

Amaretto Divine

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
I couldn't not give this five stars. I made it for my husband's birthday (amaretto is his favorite). I used International Delights Liquid non-dairy amaretto flavor (you can go on their website and find out which stores carry it... I had to go across town), Disaronno amaretto, and cool whip lite. I omitted nuts and heath bars. As per others' suggestions, I put wax paper down in my pans and the cakes came out perfectly (about 21-22 minutes for me). I used two Hershey's bars, but struggled to get all of the drizzle on there, there was so much!! I also used two 8oz tubs of cool whip... one and a half would have been fine (I frosted sides too). Everyone thought I bought it from a bakery when they looked at it, and were in love with the flavor. Worked out so well!!! Update: I've been using this recipe for 4 years now, as cakes and cupcakes, changing out various liqueurs, creamers, and puddings. I just tried Kahlua Cinnamon Spice with Cinnamon Vanilla creamer, which resulted in a little drier of a cake than I'd have hoped for - maybe I should have changed the yellow cake base this time.

Simple Time Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I tried mixing the mayo and butter like others have suggested and that was kinda messy. I increased the garlic powder a little (and omitted the salt), and that flavor came out great. As I was putting the cheese on, there was just tons there... used 3/4 cup and stopped. left the dish very oily between the ingredients anyway. DH and both liked it okay, not a bad flavor but not our favorite.
