Chicken and Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
MMM! This was so yummy and so easy to make. Thanks for the great recipe! I am a huge cream cheese fan but have never used it in a sauce like this, it gave it great flavor and will be making this a lot more often! Hubby really enjoyed it and would like it again, which surprised me since he isn't usually a big fan of creamy pasta like I am. Will definately be making this again, and quite often! Also gives great starter ideas for different sauce flavors and combinations to try in the future. The only downside is re-heating, the sauce thickened up a lot to the point where I think it's best eaten in one sitting, not left over. Plus there was WAY more than 4 servings there...at least 6, maybe even 8. Since it's not the best left over you might want to scale down the servings a bit.

Zippy Chicken Coleslaw

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
Fantastic! Very good and different than the norm. I did have to nearly triple the dressing but added extra chicken (I used pulled meat off a whole chicken did not cook as stated in recupe) so that could have dried it up a bit. Dressing was very tasty, used 1 chicken packet and 1 chili packet which gave it just enough kick. I will make this often, a good potluck dish or summer dinner.

Crunchy Tuna Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Super yummy, quick, and easy! Great starter recipe since there are plenty of things we can think of to use the crunchy biscuit idea, I would love to try it with chicken salad. I barely had the ingredients needed, so I had to sub the egg for milk and the chips for Rice Krispies cereal and it was still really good, but anxious to try with the right ingredients. I did cut the biscuits in 1/2 like another review suggested, think it would made them too heavy using whole biscuits. Will make these again and again! Thanks for the great recipe!

Beefy Baked Ravioli

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
To the person who rated this as "This is not a recipe, it's directions for opening cans" obviously you must have time on your hands to make food from scratch every day, breakfast to dinner. For those of us who have lives and live in the real world, it's nice to have an easy "semi-homemade" meal to turn to on a busy day, most of the time there are things in life that are more important to spend time on than making a meal from scratch every night.

Creamy Lasagna Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This was fantastic! I was super skeptical and was anticipating a sloppy, runny mess and was nervous to serve this to my fam before trying it myself. OMG my fam said it's the best lasagna they have ever had! During prep I didn't think this was going to turn out like lasagna at all with the odd cheese/sour cream mixture, but it was just like lasagna only with a much better cheesy mixture that everyone liked way better than the norm ricotta/cottage cheese mixture. My mom hands down makes the best lasagna I have ever had and my dad told me he liked this much better. It also held together very well, not what I expected. The best part was that my fiance hates lasagna and won't eat it, but he actually tried some leftovers last night and like it!

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Excellent, even though I screwed up the recipe a bit. I accidentally put the cheese and sour cream on top before baking, realized what I did and tried to scrape off making a mess, then tried to add it back on in the last 10 min. Also used jalapenos instead of chiles and hot enchilada sauce rather than the norm. Also just shredded some seasoned rotisserie chicken rather than cooking my own. With my little blunders or changes it was still wonderful, so I am sure once I make it 100% as it should be it will be even better. *** TO ALL THOSE OUT THERE THAWING, SEASONING AND COOKING FROZEN CHICKEN - save money, time and flavor by using a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. I picked one up at the grocerty store for only $2.50 and now I have pre cooked and seasoned chicken for all my chicken dishes/casseroles this week. They also make a good quick chicken taco. ****UPDATE: Just found out the hubby totally HATED this... he must have just been trying to be nice when he didn't tell me right away. I still thought it was great but he told me not to make it again :( I will blame his poor desire for Mexican food rather than the recipe itself.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
These were great! Very easy, tasty and held up well for days on the counter as said by another reviewed. I could not ice pumpkin cookies without cream cheese frosting as I love pumpkin and cream cheese, so I used my great grandmas cream cheese frosting recipe instead. They were a hit and one batch lasted thru not one but two family parties on Saturday and Sunday.

Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
YUM! Best pot pie recipe ever! Will def. make again, as requested by hubby. Felt it needed more veg so I added broccoli and mushrooms instead of peas (along with some pepper and garlic) and it was fantastic. Used Pilsbury refrig. dough to make it easier, and def. needs to bake longer than 35-35 min, mine was in almost an hour, maybe next time will up the temp a bit.

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Excellent! This is hubby's fave dessert and it turned out wonderful, made no changes except I used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla, thought the pudding mixture needed some chocolate. Will make again and again!

Ham and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Wow did this turn out better than expected! Much tastier than your average casserole type pasta dishes. I will atribute part of that to the sauce I used, Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo rather than plain alfredo. I think this really make this a hit and added much more flavor than traditional plain alfredo sauce. I also mixed in just a bit of the cheese that was supposed to stay on top. This was super delicious and hubby (who strays from casseroles AND alfredo sauce) gobbled it up fast and had seconds before I was done with my first bowl. I HIGHLY recommend trying different flavored sauces to give it more flavor, and will be trying this with other meats and veggies soon.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Excellent! Was a total hit at Thanksgiving, and as my first time making anything with sweet potatoes. Very sweet, almost good enough for dessert. This will be my go-to recipe whenever a sweet potato casserole is needed!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
Amazing, best shrimp recipe on the planet. Very easy and quick, and who doesn't usually have all these ingredients on hand? I doubled the sauce and served over white rice, wanted to add some veg but never did, will try some stir fry veggies mixed in next time. Will make again and again and again! Would be good with chicken too for my non-seafood eating hubby!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I thought this was great and easy. I will try reduced or fat free ingredients next time to reduce fat. *** Also, cooking in butter only will not dry it out, I came home after cooking on low for 4 1/2 hours and it was not dried up or burnt, actually gave it a good "roasted" flavor I don't think would have been accomplished by adding stuff before cooking. ***SUPER DELICIOUS UPDATE 1/7/11: I wanted to jazz this up a bit, so I started my chicken in the crock, then after maybe 2 hours added a can of drained, diced italian tomatoes in olive oil. After another 3 or 4 hours I added cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken, and chive and onion cream cheese instead of plain. Also added just a splash of white wine swirled around in the mushroom soup can. Cooked on high for a good 30 minutes, stirred and ate over egg noodles. Man was this really good! Original recipe is great I just wanted to spice things up a bit and it worked out wonderfully. Hubby even left me a note (works late, eats dinner after I am in bed) on how wonderful dinner was and that he really enjoyed it! He is the (amazing) cook in the family, so leaving a note on how great dinner was really says a lot about how great the meal turned out. If he is impressed it is definately a success!

Cheese Soup with Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
The best brocolli cheese soup! A lot like Paneras. Followed the recipe to a T except I added 2 cloves fresh garlic when cooking the onions in the butter because I love garlic and it goes in everything but dessert! Awesome, and was not too cheesy as I was expecting it to be.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Fantastic and super easy! I have everything on hand to make this whenever the black bananas come calling! I had no yogurt so I just used applesauce with a little milk and it turned out perfect. I doubled the recipe but seems as though I didn't get nearly 32 muffins... maybe I filled the batter too high. I also added a few choc chips to the top of each muffin before baking to make them extra decadent and chocolatey and they turned out great! More dessert like than muffin with the extra chocolate. Everyone loved them!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
First I thought this was a bit bland but after cooking all day and sitting in the fridge over night it was MUCH better! I used less water and added more cumin and chile powder, and also black beans, but did not have a bay leaf. This soup definately gets better each day it sits, as a lot of tomato things do. My intention was to re-create a tortilla soup I had in Mexico and I totally failed...not because it was not tasty it just wasn't the same. When I had my first bowl I was really dissapointed but I think it's b/c I was looking for a specific flavor and did not accomplish it, rather than it not being a good soup. I chose this recipe from reviews that claimed it tasted the most authentic, but unfortunately I do not think this was anywhere close to the taste I got in Mexico. Don't get me wrong this soup does taste great, just not what I was looking for. In Mexico they had avocados and chunks of queso fresco, so of course I had to buy these items. They was great but maybe next time I will skip the expensive cheese (or make my own) and stick to whatever cheese I always have in the fridge. Also do not skimp on making your own tortilla strips, this was one of the best parts and it's probably cheaper too than buying chips. I sprayed mine on both sides and stacked 4 at a time and cut thin with a pizza cutter and baked. Also added fresh cilantro on top (a must!) with a touch of sour cream.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Fantastic! I made these for the Royal Wedding party I attended, and everyone loved them. I could eat the whole batch by myself although would never get the chance! I did use the whole season packet and I think it was really flavorful, although some salt-sensative people may have found it salty, I thought it was perfect. I also did 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream since that's what I had on hand. Can't really say if that affected the taste much but boy was it good!!! I made with mini bagels to make my transport easier, however I am sure they are even better on the french bread. This recipe can be adapted into several things, I think I am going to try making turkey pinwheels with the spread and cucumbers. Yummy a must try!

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This was amazing. Very good and very flavorful. Was nervous about the no meat/tons of veggies, but it was very tasty and really easy and quick to prepare and clean up. I will make this often. Subbed a yellow squash for eggplant (do not care for eggplant) and a red pepper for green. I also did 2 layers since I made so much ravioli, and did a pepperjack layer and then a mixed shredded mix/parm layer on stop. The pepperjack gave it a nice kick every few bites. You can definately add meat to this, next time I may try kielbasa or pork sausage. I imagine you could even do a turkey sausage too. I normally love meat but did not miss it in this meal although my husband did. This meal felt really good to cook and eat since it's so full of veggies, and was very filling and satisfying.

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
Still in crock pot but it's already 5 star delicious. Pretty much stuck to recipe but added white beans and more broth, and heavy on the spices. Going to let it simmer in the slow cooker all day for this nice chilly fall weather. Great use for ground turkey and pantry items as well. This one's a keeper!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
VERY good, in fact this was excellent. I will make this often. I had no idea chicken and dumplings could be so easy. I did use a small can of chicken broth and one can of water instead of all water, and did add garlic and some chopped carrots and celery, and only used about 1.5 cans of biscuits and there was still plenty of dumplings. I am excited for the leftovers for lunch! The recipe said 8 servings, although after dinner last night for just hubby and I there is really only 1 good bowl leftover. When I make this again I will double it so we have enough left over for a couple more meals.
