Chicken Breasts with Lime Sauce

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I would give this 5 stars the way I made it. After reading all the reviews, I changed things up a bit. I cooked the chicken as according to the recipe, although I seasoned with pepper before breading. For the sauce: first, I deglazed the pan (there were burnt parts of the breading, and NOTHING to drain), and got that clean. Then, I added about 1/3 cup chicken broth and 3 tablespoons of butter, got that boiling and reduced it a bit. Then added 2 tablespoons of lime juice (not from a lime), then chives, and the dill. Prior to making the sauce, I mixed some flour with some water, made about a tablespoon's worth of the flour paste to thicken the sauce. I added that last, and let it all boil for like a minute. Then, I put the chicken back in and served. Nice thick TASTY sauce. Not too limey. The dill flavor came out nicely. It all blended SO well. YUM! Will definitely make again.

Picante Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
This was really really good. After reading reviews that it was a little thing, I used a combination of water and actual picante sauce, instead of just water. Next time I will put some beans in the mix.

My boyfriend and I thought this was really great. I used less brown sugar, about 1.5 cups. Very very tasty!

Italian Hot Turkey Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This was really good! The only thing I changed was adding a small can of tomato sauce to the broth, because I knew my husband wouldn't like the tomato chunks, and then a little bit of pepper.

South of the Border Chicken Tortilla Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
This was soooooo good! I had to make some changes because I didn't have all the stuff. So: ground turkey instead of chicken, half can cream of mushroom plus half can cheddar cheese soup instead of sour cream, salsa instead of tomatoes. And then I didn't have black beans so I spread some refried beans on the top before adding the cheese. Also, on the advice of the other review, I skipped the cinnamon. I noticed that I also forgot the salt and pepper after it was done, but I don't think that hurt it. This was really good, really a lot of food!

Slow Cooker Tender and Yummy Round Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
This is how I have made pot roast for years, except I use beef broth instead of water, and I do occasionally add beef gravy to the mix. So good! And then, use the leftovers for soup--even better!!

Three Pan Potato Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
This was very tasty. I tried to follow the recipe to a T, but the potatoes weren't cooking and the chicken was buring, so that was annoying. I didn't really feel like the potatoes added anything special, so next time I make I will add some more beans. I also put enchilada sauce on the enchiladas before baking, because what is an enchilada without the sauce? Yum yum yum!

Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
this was sooooo good. wow. thanks so much for the recipe. I only changed it up a bit, but only because of necessity (this was all I had): i used half ground beef and half kielbasa, and I used half red kidney beans and half white kidney beans. Oh, and I omitted the cheese, because I don't have any. I don't think it would need cheese. absolutely delicious!!

Chicken Scarpariello

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
This was tasty, but not robust. I needed to add more butter and garlic than the recipe called for, and I did put garlic pepper on the chicken before I coated it with flour. I beat the chicken with my meat tenderizer to make it fairly flat, which helped it cook quickly. With the leftovers, I added a laughing cow wedge of cheese before reheating, and then stirred it all around. Yum!!

Pineapple Drop Cookies II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
These were ok, kind of bland. I omitted the raisons bc I didn't have any. I dripped some of the juice into the dough to help it with flavor, and that didn't really. I made two batches, the second I rolled the dough balls in some cinnamon-vanilla-sugar (that I use in all desserts, yum!) and they came out better. I am new to baking and wonder how people make cookies taste sweet? Don't get me wrong, though, these were good! Just not, "omg I must eat all of these right now", which is what I was hoping for.

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
This was really good. Light but still flavorful. Made a few changes: used some basil flavored olive oil; added a chicken breast; and, cooked sausage and chicken with onion, garlic, oil, and pepper. Was really good!

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
YUM! I love breakfast food. I loved how the egg soaked into the bread, making the casserole light and fluffy. I got the wrong sausage--links instead of bulk--so I just cut the links into thirds, it still was good. We enjoyed it on christmas morning.

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
I'm giving it 3 stars bc I changed it. I would give a 5 to my changes! I doubled the brown sugar, and added generous squeeze of honey. I halved the garlic (I used the kind that is in a jar, and a teaspoon is one clove. 2 tsps seemed like more than enough.) I added a few shakes of "hot shot", which is a black pepper and red pepper mix.
