Garlic Cheese Grits with Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I am giving this 5 stars because the shrimp mixture with the sauce is incredible and SO easy to make, however I used the Velveeta grits recipe the first time I made this and it was awful. As a Southern girl who knows a thing or two about grits, I recommend you use real cheese, a dash of garlic, and some cayenne for your grits...cook them really low and keep adding water and/or milk until you get a nice, smooth consistency. I don't really modify the shrimp portion of the recipe, except for adding a little extra garlic and some turkey sausage (since shrimp is so expensive). I make this weekly and my family loves it!

Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
This is outstanding! It makes tons of sauce so be sure to make some Jasmine rice to go along with it. Even my very picky meat-hating 4-year-old loved it!

Asian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
This is so delicious! I made it for New Year's Eve and got rave reviews. I didn't change a thing except that I convection roasted it at 325 degrees. I did as another reviewer suggested and preserved the marinade, boiled it, then added water and corn starch until I got my desired taste/consistency for a gravy. I served it with jasmine rice. Did I mention it's delicious??

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I have only attempted to cook an entire chicken one other time, and the results weren't worth the effort. THIS was delicious and well worth the minimal effort it took to prepare it! I will definitely be making it again! And I used the leftovers to make a delicious chicken salad the next day.

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Yummy! I threw this together with what I had on hand, so I used precooked turkey dinner sausage instead of raw and broccoli instead of spinach. I sautéed the onions in olive oil first, then added the cubed sausage and garlic. I was concerned there would be too much liquid, so (as another reviewer suggested) I put the frozen broccoli in the colander first, poured the pasta water over it to cook it, then set it aside until the last minute of cooking the sauce. My kids and hub loved it - HELLO pasta and sausage! This will definitely be going into the rotation.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
I have made this several times and gotten rave reviews! And it is so easy to make! I always end up stuffing an entire package of mushrooms with the amount of filling this makes. I make sure to only include 12 of the stems in the mixture, though, and discard the rest. The last time I made this I mixed everything together as soon as the sauté mixture came off the stove. This really softened the cream cheese and made it much easier to manage. I also put the filling in a ziploc and cut off one edge and squeezed it into each shroom, which was super-easy and fast.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This is delicious and SO easy! I do recommend being careful not to cook it too long or the chicken gets a little too mushy and the liquid starts to disappear. For the beer, I use Corona, and I add a heaping tsp of cilantro and a half tsp of ground cumin to deepen the flavor.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Oh my gosh - my family loves this! And it's so easy! I have made it with and without meat, and I actually prefer without.

Husband-Friendly Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
This has a become a regular recipe in our house. It tastes just like our favorite takeout pizza, minus the $25 pricetag! It's good with the gorgonzola, but you can skip it and not really miss much. Also, I think red onion is too obtrusive so I use sweet onion instead.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
This is SO delicious and easy! I follow this recipe exactly with the exception of using 1 tsp dried parsley instead of fresh.

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
Finally - I can make one of my favorite foods! This is a great traditional chicken salad recipe. I served it for a family brunch and everyone had seconds. I plan to make it for a baby shower in a few weeks. A few small tips if you are going to make this: add salt to taste, add mayo to taste, and DEFINITELY let it sit overnight before serving to allow the flavors to mingle. Thanks, Becky!

Jenny's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I made this last night after doing a quick search for something I could make with the random items I had on hand. It was DELICIOUS and will definitely become a part of my repertoire. I don't think you could really mess this up, but here's what I used since I didn't have all of the exact ingredients: diced tomatoes instead of stewed, Pete's hot sauce, leftover rotisserie chicken, frozen pre-cooked shrimp, full-sized turkey sausage, 1/2 an onion, water w/ chicken boullion cube instead of chicken stock, white rice, and extra garlic - always! I also used a regular chef's pan with a lid because I don't have an electric skillet, and it was fine. I might add a dash of cajun seasoning or Old Bay next time, just to add some more depth to the flavor, but overall it was GREAT! Thanks Jenny!

Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Yummy! Had a much more hearty flavor than I anticipated. Used campari tomatoes, halved the pasta and added shrimp. Delicious!

Bacon Ranch Chicken Skewers

How can you go wrong with bacon, ranch and chicken? Delicious! (I use "roasted red chili paste" from the Asian food section of the grocery store.)

Penne with Garlicky Broccolini

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Yummy! This was great. I used frozen baby cut broccoli and added a dash of lemon juice, but otherwise followed the recipe. Would be great as a main course with some diced chicken or turkey sausage added.

Avocado and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Absolutely delicious! This is a new favorite for my avocado-loving household. My changes: I use chopped scallions because I don't like onions, I cut cherry tomatoes in half instead of dicing a whole tomato, and I add the dressing to taste. A great summer side to grilled salmon and angel hair pasta.

Secret Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Insanely good! I used zesty Italian because that's what I had on hand. Also only had time to marinate it for 1.5 hours. Will definitely make again!

Black Beans and Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
I tried this in the skillet a few times but thought the pork chops turned out too tough. So a few nights ago I threw it all in a baking dish, covered it with foil and slow-cooked it in the oven at 275 degrees for 3 hours. Heavenly! I used fresh salsa from the deli, and served it with yellow rice and sour cream.

My Thai Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. I am not the world's best cook, so it made me feel great when my husband genuinely loved this. I will definitely make it again! *Update: I browned some ground chicken instead of using the rotisserie and I thought it was much more like the restaurant version of this dish.
