Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Wow ! This was amazing. I made 2 lbs of asparagus and there was not one left ! The balsamic adds such a nice flavor to the asparagus. I tossed my asparagus with the oil, salt and pepper and cooked in the oven first for a little bit per other reviewers suggestion. After about 8 minutes I added 2 cloves of garlic grated and then I added the grated parmesan cheese. Left in for just a minute or two longer took out and then drizzled the balsamic over all. So good. My mouth is watering as I write this review. Thank you.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Very very good. My family was somewhat skeptical about this one but it really held up to the good reviews. The 1 cup of lentils made plenty of "meat" for our family of 6. I believe altogether we had 11 tacos and I have some leftover. I tried this with both corn and flour and I prefer the corn tortillas. In place of all the spices I simply used 1 pkg. of low salt taco seasoning. This is a nice inexpensive meal. It works well when you have forgotten to take something out to defrost for dinner. Will definately make again. Thanks !

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
Awesome chicken. I don't use garlic salt. I use garlic powder and salt seperately. Sometimes things need more garlic seasoning and I don't want to add additional salt to the dish. I mixed the garlic powder in with the crumbs and I also added it to the egg mixture. I sprinkled in some paprika for a bit of color and I added some minced onion to give it a little bit more flavor. I had to set 2 cutlets aside for my daughter who was working late and I was afraid that they would be mushy when I put them in the oven when she got home but they turned out just as crispy and delicious as the ones I made earlier in the evening. So this is a recipe you can put together quickly and easily and pop in the oven when you want to eat. Next time I might coat the chicken with lite mayo and then in the cracker crumbs. Thanks for sharing.

Savory Biscuits

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
These were good. They went well with the spaghetti marinara that I made. Next time I think I will add some grated garlic before adding the cheeses.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
I made this with the leftover "Slow Cooker Turkey Breast" from the AR website. I shredded the turkey breast and proceeded with the recipe. I did not follow this recipe to an absolute T. I used far less chiles because I was making these for my Mom and she doesn't like chiles. She also doesn't like corn tortillas so I used floured ones. I warmed the tortillas in the microwave so I could avoid dipping them in the heavy cream. Turned out delicious. I had to add a can of black beans (drained and rinsed) and a can of corn(drained and rinse) to the mixture because I needed to make alot of these and I didn't have enough turkey. Thanks for sharing.

Stuffed Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
These are very good. I didn't have chives so I used cream cheese with chives already in it. I also scaled back the recipe because I wasn't sure if we would like them but next time I plan on making the full recipe because these were delicious !! Thanks for sharing .

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
I have to say I wasn't crazy about the garlic mayo. Authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwiches have cheez wiz not mozzarella cheese. People in Philly are very very serious about their steak sandwiches and this one does not hold up. I did not put mozzarella on ours because having lived in PA for a while I just couldn't do it ! The garlic mayo added nothing to the sandwich. It gave it a funky taste, though, not in a good way . If you're ever in Philly make sure you visit Pats or Genos. Thanks anyway~

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
This was quite easy to make and I didn't have to turn on my oven on a warm day. I had a turkey breast that was about 6 1/2 lbs. I added about 3 tablespoons of butter at the bottom of my crockpot. Rubbed the breast with olive oil first then with 1 whole package of onion soup mix. I also added 1/2 cup of white wine. Set the crockpot on high for about 2 hours and then low for about 6. Next time I will cook for less. The breast was done sooner then I had planned. It was still pretty moist considering I over cooked it a bit. I strained the juices from the pot and added cornstarch to make a gravy. The gravy was absolutely wonderful. The reason I am giving it four stars is because the bird was down right ugly !! Even though the soup mix/rub gives it a brownish color there is no mistaking that it is not roasted and the skin was rubbery. It's not pretty enough to serve to guests unless you carve it before anyone even sees the thing ! But the flavor was very good. Thanks for sharing. I never thought of putting a whole turkey breast in a crockpot !

Italian Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I absolutely love this marinade. I use it when I make chicken caesar salad. This last time I used it with the ziti alfredo w/vegetables (from AR). I have also used this marinade when I make chicken souvlaki (also from AR). I even use this marinade for portabello mushrooms when I am grilling them. Sometimes, if I plan properly when I bring home my chicken or steak from the store I place it in a ziploc bag with the marinade and freeze it until I need it. That way it's all ready to go when I'm ready to use it and it's been marinating a long time.

Ziti Alfredo with Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I'm giving this recipe a 5* because I feel like it can accomadate anyone's palate. This recipe is good as it is. But I had a half jar of roasted red peppers that I didn't want to throw out so I threw it in this dish. I also had a handful of mushrooms as well. You can really put in whatever veggies you like into this recipe. I think it would stand up well. I did add 1/2 cup of white wine after sauteeing the onions. And I used about 1 cup of lite sour cream in place of the milk. I topped it with the italian chicken from this website. Thanks.

Upside-Down Orange Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Oh dear. This was very good. I am giving it five stars because it's super easy to make. You probably have the ingredients readily available and it really delivers in flavor for such an easy prep. The measurements worked out perfectly even though I made mine in a different size muffin tin. I made the orange/sugar mixture and put exactly 1 tspn into the muffin tins, I then added some crushed pecans, then I cut each of the biscuits in half. I rolled them into balls and placed in muffin tins with the orange/sugar/pecan stuff. Baked for about 10 minutes. Flipped over onto a plate. Soooo good. Next time I am planning on making them with pineapple juice and brown sugar. I think you can really substitute whatever type of fruit juice and nuts you would like. Thanks for sharing !!!

LuvAnn's Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
Very delicious. I made this early in the day and let it sit in the frigde so that the flavors could meld together. A tip from this site suggests to leave the avocado pit inside the bowl while you are chilling your guacamole. That way it doesn't turn brown and ugly. Will make again but maybe make it even hotter. I cut back on the jalapeno because I was serving it to small kids as well. Thanks !

Pineapple Upside-down Cake Martinis

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
This was good but sweet. I think next time I might add a splash of cranberry juice like someone else had suggested. Be careful with these because sweet drinks go down too easy. It does taste like a pineapple upside down cake. Will try again. Others liked it as well. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome Broccoli Marinara

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
This was good. Not fabulous. But after all it's just broccoli. Be careful when you cook your broccoli. Don't over cook it or it'll wind up one big mush. I threw in my fresh broccoli at the very end and cooked it for less than 10 mins.. I didn't have the tomatoes with the vinegar in it so I used the diced petite tomatoes with roasted garlic. I made pasta hot hot hot (from this website) and my husband threw his broccoli marinara on top of that. He really enjoyed it. I think when you mix it with pasta it brings it to another level. Thanks for sharing.

Vegetable Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
These were very good. I couldn't quite figure out the two cans, small/or large baking sheet. One can, jelly roll pan. Walla , Walla, bing bang...After reading all the reviews... Needless to say, I was confused. So. I used one can on a baking sheet and pieced the crescent rolls to resemble a rectangular pizza crust. I baked for 12-15 minutes. I then topped with 1/3 sour cream and 1/3 mayo with the cream cheese. I didn't want to use all mayo because I have a slight taste aversion to mayo. I had no dill weed so I followed someone else's suggestion and used 1/2 package of dry ranch mix. I smeared the mixture on the on the bottom and I topped with green pepper, grape tomatoes (sliced), chopped broccoli, minced red onion and finally I shredded some carrots on top before adding the cheddar cheese. I also sprinkled some garlic powder on the top. Sliced and refrigerated. Very delicious. My kids enjoyed it. It's very pretty and colorful. I felt like fooling around with this recipe so I put a 2nd can in a pie pan and just unrolled all 8 crescent rolls and layed them in the pie pan with the tips overlapping in the middle. Baked 12-15 minutes. Same thing... Smeared the cream cheese/mayo/sour cream stuff and topped. This time I sprinkled the cheddar cheese first and then topped with my veggies. I actually preferred the rectangular pizza. When I made it in the pie pan the "crust" was more like deep dish. Will make again using the baking sheet. Thanks for sharing !

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
Excellent Soup. I added about 2 tblspn of butter after the onions sauteed in the bacon drippings. I used heavy cream and thickened it up a bit more with cornstarch. Garnished with cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, chives and crumbled bacon. Heavenly. Really sticks to your ribs. Next time I will probably double the recipe. Could easily be made in a crockpot to feed a large crowd! Thanks.

Mom's Classic Reuben

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
This was very good. I like it alot better than the traditional reuben and I really like Reubens ! I used pastrami in place of the corned beef because that is what I had on hand. Will absolutely make again. My kids even liked it and they are not big reuben lovers. Thanks Mom ! It was Great.

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Very good marinade. I used Samual Adams summer ale (almost the whole bottle) because that was the only beer I had that wasn't lite. I used a tiny bit more brown sugar than it called for and a bit more teriyaki. I used a london broil and poked a bunch of holes in it. Sprinkled some salt and black pepper on the meat and put it in the marinade. This marinated for about 26 hours in the fridge. Grilled it and boiled the remaining marinade to pour over the meat afterwards. This was delicious. I generally don't like london broil but this marinade made it nice and juicy and tender. I sauteed some mushrooms to put over it as well. Will make again. Thanks.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I doubled this recipe but left the fruit amount the same. This was so delicious. The cake part of this cobbler is really amazing. It might be the best part. Next time though, I will use less butter. I found myself, out of panic, using a turkey baster to suck out the extra butter. I put this whole thing together and then read all the reviews. There is an excessive amount of butter. I used frozen berries and I also made tiny tiny cobblers in a mini muffin tin. It worked out fine in the end and they were soo cute. I sprayed the mini muffin tin with vegetable spray and then brushed the butter in the tins. I added 1 tablespoon of batter and then topped with frozen berries. Sprinkled on a bit of sugar and popped in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. I also was able to make a whole other cobbler in a 9 inch pan as well. Very delicious and it was all gobbled up within minutes. Thanks for sharing and I will be making this again.
