Savory Halibut Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
This was my first attempt at enchiladas and it went quite well!!! I made half fish, half chicken since my counterpart doesnt like fish. I browned a chicken after seasoning with salt, pepper, chili powder and garlic powder and then shredded it. Both versions were excellent!! Oh and I also used low fat sour cream and mayo and it still tasted delicious!

Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Orzo

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Really needs the cheese to give it that something extra. I add 2 cloves of garlic to my food processer as well. I also made this recipes with fresh tomatoes since a guest wasnt a fan of sun dried. (I used 2 roma's and took out the seeds) Both ways make a great side dish!

Green Bean and Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Very good. I scaled back to four servings. Even so, I felt it might be too much oil and vinger for my tastes. I just used a drizzle of both. I also added salt and pepper. They go a long way in this recipe, in my opinon. Ingredient like tomatoes, olives and red peppers might be a nice addition.

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
WOW! This was awesome! I used the 12 in. boboli thin crust and only 4 tbsps of good blue cheese dressing. I added 2 minced garlic cloves to the chicken mixture. I sprinkled with fresh parsley after cooking...really great!!! I was pressed for time, so I bought packaged grilled chicken breast strips and just hand shredded them myself before coating in hot sauce/butter. It cut the time down from stated 55min to just 20 min!

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
These are excellent. I use red onions. I also try to cook the peppers and onions just slighty, so they still have a bit of crunch left. I think it improves the texture of the quesadillas.

Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Really great! I added some green onions on top in addition to the suggested toppings. I thought one cup of sour cream was a bit too much for me, I may cut it by half next time.

Bucatini Pasta with Shrimp and Anchovies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Great dish with great flavor. I substitued the zucchini with yellow and orange peppers since my boyfriend will not eat zucchini. I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of grape because its what I had, and I think it helped give it more of a "sauce" If your worried about the anchovies, just make sure to chop them up really fine...my boyfriend didnt even know they were there!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I used bread crumbs to coat and baked. I also dulled down the intensity of the blue cheese by using half blue cheese and half cream cheese. Good, but I felt like it needed some sort of sauce to go? Will try again.

Dinah's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
Really wonderful. I followed other reviewers suggestions and used the clam juice. I used olive oil to dampen instead of butter (I didnt have enough butter) until I got a moist enough consistency. I really liked the subtle taste of the green peppers.

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
This was great. I gave it four stars because I didnt follow exactly. I had to adjust for what I had. I used cubed pancetta, and tossed in a ziploc bag with two to three tablespoons of black pepper. I omitted the basil used two cans of garlic and basil diced tomatoes (as suggested by others) and I used three cloves of garlic instead of two (I love garlic). I agree more tomatoes for more sauce. I may add a splash of cream and some chicken broth next time to stretch the sauce further. Definatley a keeper!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This was excellent. I used fat free half and half and fat free cream cheese and it came out delicious. I also substitued the garlic powder for fresh garlic, and sauteed it in the butter for a few minutes before adding the other ingredients. Very creamy and delicious.
