Kristen's Brown Sugar Crepe Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
Only way I could eat this was to squish out all the filling and just eat the crepes my husband had made. I wanted to like it since it sounded interesting, but it was honestly dreadful.

Bacon-y Bok Choy

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Wow! I've always enjoyed bok choy but had never prepared it myself until this. It was better then any I've ever had with my easy adjustments: I diced 4-5 thin slices of prosciutto and fried in a little olive oil until crispy and set it aside. Then I added a bit more olive oil to the pan and cooked the onion, pepper flakes and garlic as directed. But then I also added a few splashes of chicken broth to sort of de-glaze the pan and then settled the bok choy on top. The broth helped soften the vegetables and added lots of flavor while it simmered and steamed in the pan. The prosciutto was added back at the end and was a delicious and salty topping that was to die for. A DEFINITE KEEPER!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I used chicken 1 lb of chicken tenders and cooked it on High for 2 hours in my crock pot. Then I flattened down my biscuits and cut them into strips as another review had mentioned. They were done after only 15 more minutes that way. WOW was it good, and faster than the original recipe stated once I used the tenders instead. My husband and I both had seconds and will be saving this wonderful recipe.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
Pretty darn good. I took other users advice and added 1/2 cup milk to the mixture and it turned out perfectly! Also, I used a little olive oil to moisten the bread crumbs instead of the butter. My husband says this is a definite keeper. (Did I mention he also ate it the next morning for breakfast?!?!)

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
This recipe doesn't need another raving review but I still have to add my two cents! It was really really good! I combined several of the reviews when I made my pot pie. One review said to double the sauce, so I did. Totally unnecessary!!! I had half left which meant I only used what the recipe called for! I didn't have celery seed, so i substituted 1/4 tsp of celery salt and threw in about 1/2 tsp of garlic salt as well. Oh, and I brushed the bottom of the crust with the egg white before adding the filling and avoided the sogginess. Brushed the rest on top for a gorgeous shiny crust. Will definitely be making again and again!

Creamy Curried Shrimp with Grilled Pineapple

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
My husband found this recipe and was excited to try and make dinner for us. We skipped grilling the pineapple but it wouldn't have mattered... The curry sauce for this was way too think and very very bland.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Wow! This sauce can stand alone as the worlds best without even continuing on to make a lasagna! Very Good! I followed as written except I only used 8 noodles in my 9x13 pan. I liked the sweet italian sausage but I think regular mild, or even spicy italian sausage might have been even better. Will try that next time since I definitely plan on making this again! - PS- I combined sauce and only cooked it about 10 min before assembling the lasagna. It sat in the fridge overnight and I brought it out to sit at room temp for an hour before I cooked as directed. It couldn't have been any easier!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
I expected this recipe to be the tops with all the rave reviews but I honestly found it to be a bit bland. I followed it as written except I used walnuts instead of pecans since thats what I had. For anyone who makes this after me, I recommend following some of the others advice and adding maply syrup or sweetened condensed milk. I will try that next time and it definitely needs a little kick to heighten the flavor.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
A bit complicated recipe but worth the time. This was my first Chicken Cordon Bleu effort and I loved it! I used Half butter, half olive oil to brown the chicken. In my opinion you should definitely use the wine. Substituting with broth just will not achieve the maximum flavor. Also I tied my rolled chicken with twine and forgot about the toothpicks, they're too complicated to dig out afterwards. If you're not a huge fan of Swiss, use baby swiss. Its much milder while packing the same punch. And last but not least, this dish needs citrus. Serve with some fresh lemon slices on the side. Yum!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Served this dip for the 5th time tonight for guests and there never is a bite left! Absolutely delicious! I do half mayo and half sour cream, no basil and no mozzerella. I either sprinkle a little more parmesan on top or maynbe a little monterey jack. Yum. I always serve with pita chips too. They hold up to the thick dip. Definitely try this recipe!

Zucchini Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
This soup is so creamy and full of flavor. The white wine is a must. It really makes all the flavors pop. I first made this soup for a friend who had mouth surgery but liked it so much that I've made it for my family again and again. As others have mentioned, puree the soup altogether after adding the cream of mushroom soup. It makes everything perfectly creamy. Yum!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
It is absolutely outrageous how good this is to have been so simple! Keep these ingredients on hand in your pantry for a last minute meal. I made it exactly as the recipe called for except I used Rotel's tomatoes with green chilies *extra hot. And WOW was it spicy! Also I added the chips in the bottom of the bowl instead of on top as others have suggested. I liked it that way since they got soft and thickened the soup. DELICIOUS!
