Soy Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Very simple, very good! I only changed two things: I removed the skin before cooking to reduce the fat and I doubled the green onion, adding half of it to the chicken while it simmered. This will be on my regular rotation!

Savory Mango Guacamole

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
I *love* guacamole. I've made the quick and easy guac with mashed avocados and salsa, and I've made it fancy from scratch. So, please believe me when I say that this one is fabulous! I made it exactly as written. We had to stop ourselves from eating all of it and spoiling our appetite for the rest of our Cinco de Mayo meal! Savory, sweet and just plain delicious!

Salmon and Swiss Chard Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
This is a lovely dish. colorful, flavorful -- perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's more of a frittata, because of the lack of crust. I baked it in a quiche dish. I used leftover grilled salmon, and simmered it in a little more than half the milk called for in the recipe to give it a little more moisture. I served it with some grated parmesan cheese, sour cream and salsa. Yumm!

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
Lovely! I tweaked the recipe just a tad by adding colorful bell peppers, a little garlic and another egg (because the mixture didn't bind well when formed). The recipe also made more patties than called for (I formed seven 3" to 4" diameter patties). That's a bonus. I'm heartily impressed!

Bell Pepper Frittata

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Very Nice! While I kept faithfully to the ingredients, I changed up the presentation and cooking method. First, I couldn't find any red bell peppers I liked, I used orange - the recipe works with any bell pepper. And instead of putting the mixture into a whole bell pepper, I cut the peppers in half lengthwise, so the egg part is more visible. I think its prettier presentation. I also used crumpled foil to keep the peppers from rolling when putting in or taking out of the oven. All in all, a great idea - I will put this on my regular rotation!

Mango Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
With the exception of cutting up the mango, this was a really easy meal. I halved the recipe, but left the amount of mango intact - that seemed to solve the lack of mango flavor that others mentioned. I didn't want to overcook the chicken in the process of browning it, so erred on the side of not quite browned in favor of allowing the chicken to poach in the delightful orange-mango sauce. I found it delightfully fruity and light-tasting. No rice needed - just added some steamed veggies for an excellent summer meal!

Blackberry Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Very easy and quick. I loved the subtle, sweet herb flavor. The chicken breast was very tender and cooked just right. The sauce (more of a glaze, actually) added a nice depth and looked great drizzled on the chicken. I used 1 tsp of dried lemon thyme in place of fresh, but followed everything else exactly. I didn't need the cornstarch, as I thought the sauce reduced quite nicely. A wonderful blend of flavors, which went very well with a nice salad and herbed potatoes!

Crock Pot Portobello Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Very simple. Very good. I made two small adjustments: I used boneless chicken breast and baby bella (crimini) mushrooms. The sauce from the dressing made a wonderful dressing for the angel hair pasta. We loved it! Next time, I will add a lot more mushrooms!

Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
I like tetrazzini, but this one seemed not to have the "wow" factor. It was good, but I thought it could use some jazzing up. I will kmake it again, but add a bit more pizzaz. I love that this can be frozen and served later, and I made several lunches for the office from this recipe.

Pizza Alfredo with Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
This was great!! The only things I changed were that I cut the meatballs in half, so used only half as much (they were just a bit big for easy eating), and I used sun-dried tomatoes in the packet (not in oil), and soaked them in a little olive oil to infuse the flavor. It took a bit of prep, so I'm not sure just how often this will be made, but this *will* be in my repertoire of out-of-the-ordinary, fun things to make!

Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Very good. I'd never made eggs Benedict before, but it came out just fine. It was very helpful to make the eggs ahead of time, to be sure that everything was timed properly. Unlike what other reviewers said, I did not think that the sauce was too lemony. My SO said he'd never had it before, but he really liked it. Not one I will make often because of the prep, but I will make it again.

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Like others, I did not have any wheat germ on hand, so substituted oatmeal. I just rolled them out into little balls and used a fork to mash 'em down like others have done as well. My dogs love them (I'll need to make much bigger batches as they are BIG dogs), and they even taste pretty good to the hoomans!

Swedish meatballs - from a Swede

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Wonderful!! I have to thank Baking Nana for the recommendation. I didn't take a picture of them, and I should have, dogone it. Not to worry - I'll be making them again very soon!

Beer Chops II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I am genuinely surprised! I didn't expect much from this recipe, but I have to admit I really liked it! My SO went crazy for it - and I'm more of a beer person than he is! I will say this, however: Be choosy about your beer. The flavor of the beer is intensified in this recipe, so if you don't like it enough to drink it, you won't like what you cook with it. For the beer-shy, go for a mild lager (Budweiser, Coors, etc.). If you're bold, go for a nice dark ale, porter or stout, but if you don't want that bitter taste magnified (and it will), mix between a teaspoon to a tablespoon of sugar or honey to the brew before you pour it over the chops. Next time, I might sear the chops before I put them in the slow cooker for some color (they came out a little pale), and shorten the cooking time accordingly.

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
I'm floored! This will be a favorite meal forever! Easy to prepare and oh, so flavorful! I did tweak the recipe a little: I cut up the chicken into small pieces, for easy spooning when serving. I added about 1/2 cup finely chopped onion with the mushrooms and cream cheese mixture. Gave it a nice fresh taste with a little extra texture. The cream cheese was the lower fat neufchatel cheese; the soup was lower sodium Campbell's Healthy Request condensed cream of chicken soup. The mushrooms were 8 oz of sliced fresh crimini mushrooms. Wonderful stuff! My SO raved about it! We will be doubling the mushrooms next time (we love mushrooms)!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
My, oh, MY -- this is the most amazingly juicy and tender chicken I have ever had! I seriously cannot remember eating a breast from a roast chicken that was this succulent (and decadent!). I'm floored! I will never buy another store-bought rotisserie chicken again...EVER!

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
This was really good! I thought that it was a bit on the bland side as written, so I think I'll add a few more spices and whatnot next time. All in all, a very good dish for company.

Italian Chicken Sausage Stuffed Portabellas

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
We really liked this! Instead of using portabellas, I decided to use the criminis I had on hand and made them as appetizers for our Sunday dinner. I added more garlic (you can never have too much garlic) and skipped the chive garnish. A flavorful, quick appetizer.

al fresco Roasted Pepper and Asiago Chicken Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Wonderful! I love frittatas, so I knew this would be great. We were not disappointed! I did add two extra eggs, because the size of my pan was a bit larger than the recipe called for. The result was still chock-full of flavor!
