Poblano Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
This is a great recipe!! We loved this. The only things I did differently was use less jalapeno (because my husband isn't supposed to have spicy food) and I forgot to buy mushrooms, so we had to go without. So, I added a little bit of chipotle powder and a little bit of ancho chili powder to the cream sauce because otherwise it would be so plain. I did add extra salt and pepper to the chicken/chili mixture. This was so yummy. I think it is pretty adaptable with adding extra veggies if need be as well. We loved it.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Perfect for pouring over a chocolate cheesecake. Or anything else that needs a delicious chocolate layer. Wonderful! It refrigerates well and remains soft but not overly sticky.

Aloo Phujia

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I loved it. For my taste, it was just spicy enough. I added chopped fresh parsley and I think other veggies might be good too, as I think it is served that way sometimes. This would be a delicious side dish for any grilled meat.

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
The only reason I made this was because of all the positive reviews and the fact that I had everything in the recipe in the house. I was very pleasantly surprised and my husband liked this. It makes plenty of leftovers too. The only thing I might modify in the future is the amount of brown sugar. The sauce is extremely sweet.

Pork and Green Chile Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
It's okay, but probably not a keeper. I had to add some spices because it was a little bland for my taste. I think it could be the kind of food that will taste a million times better after sitting in the fridge overnight. Still, it is filling and relatively healthy. I really love pork and green chiles, but I will keep looking for a better way to combine them.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
I have tried many different roasted chicken recipes. This is so simple and so good! I had no celery, so I put chunks of sweet onion inside the bird. This recipe got the results I was looking for tastewise. Unfortunately, the 1/2 c. of butter is not good healthwise, but I think it may be the price of getting a yummy, juicy roast chicken. I made a nice gravy from the pan sauce for the mashed potatoes. This is definitely a good method. But maybe not the healthiest way to prepare chicken. I made this in a blizzard in Wisconsin, when we needed something warm and comforting, so it was really great for us.

Meg's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Really yummy! I followed the recipe exactly, even down to the cooking time and temp (which I wasn't sure would work well). I had to use half semisweet and half butterscotch chips because that's all I had in the cupboard. Very nice texture. A little crunchy around the outside but chewy on the inside. Yummy!

Wonderful Chicken Curry Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This was a good recipe. I couldn't follow the recipe exactly because I needed to use stuff that I had in my cupboards/fridge. So I did things a little differently, but that just proves it is a good base recipe and very adaptable. I also felt that there was too much mayo. Next time I would go with a 3/4 cup. I also chose to grate the onion and used only about 2.5 TBSP of grated onion. I also used cashews instead of pecans. Here are some substitutions that I made with stuff I had on hand. Replaced 1c grapes with 1c peeled, chopped apple. Replaced 3/4c chutney with some strawberry jam. Added a splash of lemon juice. Added a dash of paprika for color. It was yummy with butter lettuce on bakery rolls! I think it would be good in a wrap as well. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
These are awesome! Loved them. I doubled the recipe and followed some suggestions that recommended adding red bell pepper. I only had cream of chicken and cream of celery, so I used those instead of cream of mushroom. I also added some taco seasoning to the chicken, probably not authentic, but cream soup isn't either, is it? I served with avocado and cilantro. Delicious! So warm and yummy in the middle of winter!

Orange Pork Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Pretty Good! Still looking for the perfect stir fry technique and recipe. I used fresh veggies instead (broccoli, squash, pepper, onion, and mushrooms). I liked it but will keep trying.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
It was pretty good! We like things a little more spicy than the recipe as is though. I also used fresh ginger and added some additional veggies. Next time, I will use sesame oil and use some more chicken broth so it will be a little saucier.

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
It was okay, but I don't feel the need to make it again. It was very salty. I really think some more flavor is needed. Maybe a blend of cheese rather than plain cheddar. The cooking directions and texture were okay. My husband and I just found it bland.

Chocolate Cheesecake II

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
Wonderful. I used oreo cookies for the crust. And thawed frozen raspberries as a topping. It was perfectly creamy and very, very chocolatey goodness-full. I used a different ganache recipe though. Make sure the cheesecake is chilled and cooled before pouring ganache. Set the chilled cheesecake over a cooling rack over a cookie sheet to catch the drips. Okay--so that said, it's a perfect dessert for a chocolate lover! Big hit!!

BLT Dip

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
Okay, so people seemed to like this because they ate it all. But...I followed these additions from another reviewer: "I added 8oz of cream cheese and 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Then I baked it at 350 for about 20 minutes." It seemed like all the oil from all the fatty stuff separated. I would perhaps try to slim this down in the future somehow. But people still downed it! Even though it was kind of oily. So, maybe next time, totally skip the cheddar cheese. That would probably help.

Hot Spiced Cranberry Cider

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Making it in the crockpot is a no-brainer! Thanks to whomever suggested that in the comments. It smells great in the house. People really liked this. I used cider from the store shelf, and 100% cranberry juice from the frozen can. I think you would want it in on high for 2 hours at least prior to the first cup you want to drink. It allows the spices to bloom a little. Delicious! Thanks!

Greek Style Garlic Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
Loved this! I did it on pork kebobs and I let it go overnight. I thought the flavor was great. It grills just beautifully. Can't wait to actually try it on chicken. Served with AR "Orzo and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese." Yum!

Orzo and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
Loved it. I think it's best to make pasta salads a day ahead. This one held up fine in the fridge overnight. Love the dill and parsley. I thought it was really great. Served with Garlic Lemon grilled skewers.

Key Lime Pie VIII

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
This was awesome. It's creamy and tangy and sweet with tons of lime flavor. I love lime! I ended up using about 12 small limes to get all the juice. It made more than enough filling for the shell, so maybe next time I can get a bigger shell. The leftovers were awesome as a dip with graham crackers though!

Carne Asada Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
This was relly great. The tomatillo sauce was much better than expected. I added cilantro to it and skipped the step of cooking it down with beef broth-it tasted lovely and fresh to me; also I was in a hurry. I used skirt steak, and we grilled it. It was annoying to cut up but I used kitchen shears. It took longer than expected. Thanks for a lovely recipe.

Jamaican Jerked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This was awesome. I did use it on pork instead of chicken but I did read that Jamaican Jerk is traditionally made with goat or pork rather than chicken anyway. Upon grilling, it takes on a just lovely aroma. We topped it with the Hot Banana Salsa from the website. I liked it--it was fresh and healthy and aromatic. My husband added some hickory chips while grilling. I don't know how much of a difference that really makes. It was yummy.
