Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
I made this chicken for my fiancé and my sister two nights ago. My sister is extremely picky so I didn't tell her what was in it until she took a bite. She loved it. She ate her entire plate. My fiancé ate his entire plate as well. I actually had to get up and brown more chicken on the stove, add it to the remaining sauce in the casserole, add some more cheese, and crumble some more bacon and make this again because he wanted more! It DOES heat up very well too. I just got done having it for lunch today and it still tasted wonderful. I left off the chives and parsley, though due to my picky eaters, but it still tasted absolutely delicious. I, like just about everybody else, put extra teriyaki sauce on the bottom of the dish (I used Kikkoman teriyaki baste and glaze), mixed the ranch into the teriyaki rather than just pouring it on top, used more Cheddar than the recipe called for, crumbled up real bacon, and added the cheese and bacon during the last 15 minutes of cooking only. It felt like we were eating at a restaurant!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
I made these this afternoon because I had all of the ingredients on hand which was wonderful. They are delicious! It's hard to only eat one, but I had to control myself so there would be enough for everyone else. Very rich, but very tasty! I had to add a little bit of water to the glaze when I was mixing it together because it was just too thick and tough. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. They were amazing. Just some tips: Make sure when you're cutting your brownies into squares you use a plastic knife. The brownies won't stick to the plastic as much so there's less crumbs and the individual brownies have smoother sides. Also before greasing/flowering your pan you could put down a piece of foil or parchment paper and make sure about 2 inches of it sticks out over each side of the pan. That way, once the brownies are cool you can easily lift them out of the pan. Just make sure you still grease and flower the pan after you put down the paper.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I wish I could give this recipe way more than 5 stars. This soup is literally incredible. I have never tasted any soup as delicious as this one. I could seriously put it in a cup and drink it. The broth is so flavorful it could be eaten by itself. Here's how I make it my own: I do cook the chicken beforehand. I use 1 1/2 pounds (a pound is not enough) of boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins or breasts. I season them with mrs. dash, oregano, garlic powder, and onion salt and bake them in the oven with a little bit of water at 375 for 25 minutes. I use all mild ingredients just because I don't like things too spicy. Instead of taking the time to chop up the onions and peppers I throw in a jar of tostito's chunky salsa. It adds a lot of flavor and also makes more soup in the end. I add 2 packets of chicken bouillon to the water and then an extra packet to the actual soup just because. I also put in more corn and add some oregano. I just use a bag of tortilla chips for convenience and always add lots of cheddar cheese. If you want it to serve more you could add a packet of mahatma saffron yellow rice. This soup is so good that even if you're stuffed you have to get more. My fiancé absolutely loves it. He drank the broth like milk at the bottom of a cereal bowl. Next time I'm making two crockpots of it. It's goes great with "Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips" from this website for dessert!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
I wasn't that impressed with these cookies. I hate giving a bad review and I've never had to before. The cookies weren't terrible, but I won't be making them again. They were very soft, but a little dry and bland. I used butterscotch pudding mix, doubled the vanilla, and took them out of the oven early so they'd be extra soft. Regardless, they weren't worthy of all the rave reviews in my opinion. I decided to make these today to give to some friends for Christmas tomorrow. I figured if any, these would be cookies that wouldn't need a "test-bake" before giving out. I was wrong.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2006
This alfredo sauce was so extremely delicious! I couldn't keep from dipping my finger in it before the pasta was done. It tasted just like it was made in a restaurant and there were absolutely no leftovers! I will definitely be using this over and over. UPDATE: Not too long ago my fiancé told me that this alfredo sauce was the BEST thing i've ever made for him...and I've made A LOT for him. Needless to say, a few days later we made fettucini alfredo together with this sauce and we devoured it! I love love LOVE this recipe!
