Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
I just finished baking and cooling these AMAZING Sopapilla cheesecake squares. I was searching for a Mexican desert to make for my classroom Mexican Fiesta tomorrow. The only part of the recipe I changed was using regular vanilla extract since I wasn't able to find Mexican at my store. This was so simple to prepare and tastes so delicious! I chose to use lowfat cream cheese and lowfat crescent rolls. This has to be my very favorite desert recipe on this site! Thank you very much CandelB! I look forward to bringing them to our Fiesta!

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
We make turkey meatloaf, meatballs, and burgers at least once a week. I was looking for a recipe that was slightly different then what I normally make. I used 3 lbs of ground turkey, 1l arge Red bell pepper, 1 large green bell pepper, 1 large vidalia onion, 4 cloves garlic minced,6 Tbs Worcestershire sauce, 3 Tbs Dijon, 3 eggs, 2 cups italian seasoned breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup olive oil(did not have couscous or zucchini on hand) and topped each large meatloaf muffin with a squeeze of Bulls-Eye Kansas City barbeque sauce. It made 23 delicious meatloaf cupcakes. They reached 160 degrees in 18 minutes on 400 degrees oven. The entire family raved about these and they had a completely different flavor than what I normally make. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Butter Dip Breadsticks

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I just finished eating one of these delicious breadsticks tonight. I baked these to go along side pasta fagouli soup and I was so glad that I did. This was my first attempt at making homemade bread sticks. I added a 1/2 cup parmesiana cheese to the flour mixture before adding the milk. I added a dash of garlic powder, sprinkle of oregano and basil to the melted butter. I topped them off with extra parmesiana cheese prior to baking. These garlic herb bread sticks tasted and looked similar to those at Pizza Hut. They were delicious in the pasta fagouili soup or just eaten alone! I definitely would recommend this recipe to friends and family! Manja!

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I have never eaten a barbeque chicken pizza before. I had left overs from Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken from this site. I rolled out my dough to fit in my largest cast iron skillet. Greased the pan with olive oil and sprinkled corn meal over that. Pre cooked my pizza dough on 400 for 15 minutes. I mixed 1/4 c barbeque sauce with 3/4 c marinara sauce. Topped with mozzerella cheese and then added the chicken. Added diced green bell pepper and pineapple tidbits. Added some more cheese on top of that and sprinkled on some dried cilantro. I did brush my crust with olive oil and garlic powder. I baked an additional 25 minutes at 400. This smelled great, looked great, and tasted amazing. I would have never thought to use up my barbeque chicken left overs on a pizza if it were not for finding this recipe. In the future I will make it just like the original when I don't have the leftover chicken. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
This was absolutely delicious. I used frozen chicken thighs, 18 oz bottle of Kraft Honey Roasted Garlic barbeque sauce, 1/2 c italian salad dressing, no brown sugar (didn't have any), 2 Tbs Worc. Sauce, ! Tbs Liquid smoke 1/2 large vidalia onion, 4 whole cloves of garlic after reading several reviews and based on personal preferences. I cooked the chicken on high for 3 hours then deboned and shredded the chicken then cooked on low for 1 hour. I served it over a baked potato with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and chives for myself. My hubby preferred his on a sandwich. My picky 17 year old daughter said "this tastes really good mom, better than that restaurant we go to." Thank you for a terrific family recipe!

Chicago-Style Pan Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I wasn't able to find frozen bread dough at our store so I bought a bag of refrigerated pizza dough. I had many tomatoes from our neighbors garden I needed to use up so I diced those instead of using canned. I used fresh garlic cloves and minced them. I sauted the garlic, onion, 1/2 green bell pepper, fresh sliced mushrooms in olive oil with salt, pepper, oregano and fennel. I drained all the liquid from the vegies. I did bake the the crust for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. I topped it with mozzerella cheese, tomato mixture, and lastly with grated fresh parmesan cheese. I did brush the crust with olive oil and baked for 30 minutes in a cast iron skillet. The crust rose beautifully, the dough was completely cooked/not soggy, the color of the crust was a lovely golden brown, and the texture was crispy. I made a second "kid version" pizza with jar sauce, mozzerella cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and parmesan cheese. They loved theirs as well. The prep work time was long but worth it in the end! Everyone raved over it and only have 3 pieces left over from both pizzas. Enjoy, you won't be disappointed!

Jasmine Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I just made this rice to accompany a garlic citrus chicken dinner. I sauteed 2 TBS olive oil with minced onion and minced garlic. I did not have any peas so I grated 2 large carrots and added to garlic and onion. Added 1 1/2 cups of jasmine rice and stirred to coat. Poured in 2 cups chicken broth and 1 cup water. Added 1 bay leaf, chopped fresh basil, and some ground black pepper. I did not add salt since I used the chicken broth which is high in sodium. Brought to a slight boil then put on low until all liquid was gone stirring occasionally. Took off heat and covered for 40 minutes. It was the best rice I have ever cooked. Thank you for the base recipe. You can do so many variations with this one. Enjoy!

Blueberry Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
I wanted to surprise my boyfriend after working a long day with a dessert. I happened to have frozen blueberries on hand and decided to give this a try. After reading many of the reviews I decided to double the topping. I added 2 tablespoons of flour to 7 cups of berries in a 9 x 13 pan. I had this ready to go and in the oven by the time the oven preheat signal went off. This is so delicious and so simple to prepare. We topped off ours with chocolate icecream we had in the freezer. Thank you for a fabulous recipe! 10 Stars!!
