Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
This is a really good recipe but like others, I did make some changes. I did dredge the chicken in flour before I put it in the pan. Before I did the chicken, I browned one large onion in the oil and then removed it from the pan. I would recommend using more oil to brown the chicken if you dredge it in flour. I doubled the sauce and would triple it next time. I used more garlic and fresh ginger than it calls for. I cooked some frozen edamame and some frozen stir fry veggies and then tossed it all in with the onion to the cooked chicken. It is spicy so if you don't like it too hot, cut back on the sriracha.

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
Very tasty and quick to put together. I added garlic powder to the cream cheese mixture. I did not use green peppers and I did use turkey pepperoni mini's which I microwaved briefly to get any extra grease out. Also topped it with a bit more mozzarella. I will make this again.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Very good flavorful soup. I used a ham bone and cooked everything together. Removed the bone and fat at the end of 2 hours. Used chicken stock in place of the water and also added carrots, more fresh garlic(didn't use the powder) and onions. I used fresh parsley too. Also added liquid smoke and 4 T. of cider vinegar at the end. I didn't add anymore ham as there was quite a bit on the bone and I also did not add 3 more cups of water - probably just added another cup of chicken stock.

Nana's Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
This was one of the best stroganoff recipes I've ever tried. I just shared some leftovers with a coworker and she agreed. I did add some balsamic vinegar to the stock mixture and I added more than the called for beef stock as the roux was too thick without it. Very, very tasty!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
This is a great winter soup! I cooked about 3 pieces of bacon in a saute pan and then sauteed the celery, onions, garlic and shredded carrots (I added some things!) in that. I used chicken broth instead of the water and chicken soup base instead of the bouillon granules. Adding a bit of liquid smoke really made the flavor pop. I also used evaporated milk. I added no salt and used fresh ground pepper. To thicken it up just a little, I added some mashed potato flakes. I made it to take to a family but if it were for me, I would have added some cayenne to spice it up a little.

Hunts® Tomato and Bacon Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
This is very tasty and is a wonderful, quick one-pot meal! I added a whole chopped onion and let that sweat out with the garlic. I topped it with some grated Parmesan-Reggiano cheese. You could also top it with some chopped fresh basil.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
This was fabulous and received rave reviews where I brought it. I followed the directions exactly and added one roma tomato and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Next time, I'm going to make it as a salsa and add a jalapeno or serrano pepper and chop the ingredients a little finer.

Cheesy Onion Focaccia

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
This is an excellent tasting focaccia. I did have to add at least another 1/2 c. flour after the dough cycle was done in my machine. I used 2 onions and carmelized those and added garlic at the end. I also added dried basil to the dough. I sauteed my onions and garlic in olive oil. I also topped it with thinly sliced tomatoes and sliced basil leaves. Also did divide the dough and made two smaller pieces. I'll definitely make this again!

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This is a FABULOUS hot weather meal! I halved the recipe. Used spicy V8 juice and used more than was called for. I used one pound of shrimp - added more cilantro, garlic onion, lime juice and hot pepper sauce than called for. I also added finely chopped peeled cucumbers which really add to the refreshing texture of this dish. I put in one avocado when I made it (and let it sit overnight) and then added another one when serving. Served it with a lime wedge, cilantro sprig and tortilla chips and fresh cantaloupe.

Chinese Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I made this today and it was a great hot weather salad to have with leftover rotisserie chicken that I got at the grocery store earlier this week. I added about 1 T of sesame oil to the oil and also used 1/2 olive and 1/2 veg. oil (using the tablespoon of sesame oil to fill up the 1/2 c. I used rice wine vinegar. I added a large can of mandarin oranges and pea pods (cut in half). I used rice noodles instead of chow mein noodles. If I had ginger on hand, I would have grated some in the dressing. I think I'll leave the poppy seeds out next time. They really don't add much. This was a very nice salad!

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
This was very good fried rice. It's a lot of work, just like all Oriental dishes are, in having to cut and chop things but it was worth it. I pretty much followed the hints given by 2tee on April 20, 2007. I only used ham and shrimp,used a red pepper instead of green, added bean sprouts and used edamame instead of peas. I always add more garlic than any recipe calls for and I did not use celery. I would say it needs more than 1/4c. soy sauce with all of that rice. I also used some oyster sauce and topped it with green onions before serving. Oh, I used 3 eggs too. Cooking them first and then setting them aside and cutting them in strips, works very well! The leftovers are great for lunch at work. Thanks for the recipe.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This is a perfect way to do a rib roast. However, you have to plan your other dishes if you only have one oven. I rubbed the roast with olive oil and then the seasonings. Next time, I'll do the second segment of cooking for one hour. It was a bit too rare for me but otherwise, just delicious! I did add beef stock to the bottom of the pan before baking but it pretty much just evaporated.

Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
This was really good - a keeper that I'll make again. I did use a rotisserie chicken and that was the perfect amount. I used a can of mild enchilada sauce and added some chicken broth to that as well as chopping up a couple chipotle chiles in adobo sauce and adding to the sauce and onions. Using a 9x13 pan, I got 10 enchiladas. If you use a larger lasagna pan, you could get 12. I also combined the pepper jack cheese and co-jack for a little more flavor. To top it off, I used chopped cilantro and chopped green onions.

Roasted Beets with Feta

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Made this pretty much as listed. I "eyeballed" the dressing ingredients and used a bit more of everything. It was very tasty and pretty. Will definitely make again. (And will add a bit of minced garlic next time!) Update: I use garlic and onion in place of the shallots. I just made these for someone who said she didn't like beets and she went back for seconds! Definitely toast the walnuts and sprinkle them over the cheese before serving.

Lime-Tarragon Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Great chicken dish! I used boneless, skinless thighs and will try it with boneless, skinless breasts next time. I may add a bit of chopped garlic to the marinade but otherwise, I wouldn't change anything. It was excellent!

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This was the first time for this recipe for me and it won't be the last! It has great flavor. I doubled the recipe and used 4 c. of fresh raspberries. I added 1/4 c. of milk and used 1 t. vanilla and 1 t. almond in the cake batter. Instead of sour cream, I used plain vanilla yogurt. I toasted pecans and put those on the top. It was baked in a 9 inch springform pan which was just a perfect size. It needed more than 40 minutes with the extra raspberries so I added almost 10 more minutes of baking time. I did glaze the top since it's a very small amount of glaze and served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was a hit!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
I enjoyed these muffins as well. I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. Added an overflowing teaspoon of vanilla, a teaspoon of cinnamon and about 1/2 c. of coconut along with the walnuts. They baked in about 20 minutes in muffin cups. I'll definitely make these again!

Asparagus Swiss Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This was a excellent quiche! I did splurge and use Swiss Gruyere cheese which was really yummy. When I do it again, I will saute the onions with the bacon and calm their flavor a bit. I also added more eggs and 1/2 and 1/2 and added red peppers to the top for more veggies and garnish. With the bacon and the cheese, I would eliminate adding any extra salt next time.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
GREAT salad! I served this with Sensational Sirloin Kabobs and Gourmet Mushroom Risotto all from this site. I did use 1/4 c. sugar but would cut it down to 1 or 2 T. when I make again. Used peanut oil as well. I didn't add the cheese to it but it would be good with a chevre, blue or any other kind of crumbled cheese you may like. The toasted almonds really add a lot and I did them on a sheet pan in the oven with no butter. Next time, I'm going to use field greens or baby lettuce. This is a keeper!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
A wonderful risotto! I followed the recipe pretty much although only used 1 1/2 pounds of mushrooms and that was plenty. Only added 2 T of butter and probably 2/3 c. of parmesan cheese. Everyone raved about this. It takes much longer than 15-20 minutes to stir and absorb all the liquid in - it was more like 45 minutes.
