Risotto with Truffle and Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
The recipe is pretty much perfect!!! I actually forgot to put the tiny bit of milk in at the end, but it didn't matter to us. I also left out the truffle oil only because the BF doesn't like mushrooms. Other than that I followed it exactly. Here's my tips and tricks. If you have white wine in the house, i'm sure any kind would do, but if you don't, you can buy white cooking wine at the grocery store. It's usually with the vinegars and marinades. Don't boil the broth, get it hot, but don't let it boil. Do ALL your prep first and have it within reach.. You really cannot leave the stove once you start. Use a teflon pan and a wooden spoon. Nothing will stick that way, and the rice slides right off the spoon. The recipe says stir and STIR YOU WILL!!! It's pretty much constant...so be prepared for that. I used exactly 3 cans of chicken broth. Thank you so much for this recipe. My BF and I had sauted scallops and asparagus with it, and it was a special anniversary meal and we had a lot of fun making it together. :)

Savory Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Reading the reviews, I actually feel kinda bad for the submitter cuz all the reviews start "great recipe after i basically changed every ingredient in it." I always make the recipe as close to exact as possible to be fair before making changes to it. I was surprised at the omission of garlic too, but wanted to try it as written. The mushrooms turned out delicious even with out bacon, garlic, or all the other ingredients everyone else seems to think they need. The stuffing was easy to make and they looked beautiful when the cheese got golden and bubbly. The hubby and I fought over the last one!! So, maybe next time a sliver of garlic or two, but then again, maybe not. I liked the recipe as written.

Bacon Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
This was pretty good but I need to clarfy some stuff. Listen to the bisquik box, not the recipe here!! 1 cup of milk to 1.5 cups baking mix will give you soup. 3 slices of bacon is a little chinzy, we used 6 and could probably have used more. We didn't add the crumbled bacon until our own bowlfuls because we didn't want it soggy. The crunchy bacon on top is much better I think 2 C of the half and half would have sufficed, as 3 just seems like a little too much broth. This can be helpful, however, if your making more dumplings!! The rest of it we followed exactly and it turned out quite nice. Filling and comforting. Thanks for the great base recipe!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
I have to tell you first that I did have to modify it since we had no golden mushroom soup and I was afraid to try a cream soup with this. So what I did was poach the chicken first and cut it in to cubes and then i made the sauce leaving out the soup and wine and using a 14 oz can of chicken broth to substitute both. all the rest i did the same and it actually turned out really good considering!! it was creamy and rich and i did add a touch of parmesan for bite. I can't wait to try it the original way!!

No Beans About It - Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I made this the other night.. It was just ok for me and the b/f.. I used about 3 tbsp of chili powder and about 3 tbsp of hot sauce too. The flavor was there, but with the crushed tomatoes it had the consistency of spaghetti sauce for me. So, i will use the recipe again, but i think i'll go with diced tomatoes next time.

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
LOVED THIS!! and so easy!! I was really bummed because my fresh market was out of basil...but I had some dried at home. Didnt expect a miracle with dried but followed recipe to a tea (except using thighs instead of breasts, boneless) and added 1 1/2 tsp of the dried basil. It was wonderful!! I bet with fresh basil it will knock my socks off!! Also mine made plenty of sauce.. I added some bread to the meal to mop up the yummy sauce. And the leftovers were great as well! Thanks for an easy, awesome recipe!! ****UPDATE 10/5/09***** I made this again, with fresh basil, but couldn't find pimentos this time, so i tried roasted red peppers. It was AWESOME! I made it for friends and they raved about it.. and it's so EASY! TRY THIS RECIPE!!

Pork Chops with Delicious Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Really liked this!! The only differences I did was used maple syrup (no honey on hand) and started the sauce with 1/4 cup milk but added another 1/4 cup while simmering, as the sauce started to get thick. It was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!!

Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
This was my first attempt EVER at potato salad. It was a fathers day request from my future dad-in-law so I was quite nervous! This turned out really good. I did add quite a bit more mayo, about another 1/2 cup, plus a heaping tblspn of miracle whip and then about a teaspoon of sugar. That made it perfect! Thanks for the recipe, there was none left!

My Country Style Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
This was great!! I only used 1/2 pack of onion soup mix, and mixed 1C water and 1C milk for the creamier gravy. I only let this cook about 30 mins and hoped for the best since I was crunched for time. The meat was still pretty tender!! Boyfriend said "mmm...good gravy!" He eats almost everything I make, but when he comments on it, it's a keeper! I cleaned my plate too, and can't wait to eat the leftovers! Thanks for the great recipe!

Penne with Garlicky Broccolini

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
I made this according to the directions, only switching the pasta to rotini (all I had). It was ok, but needs something. I also had to add some oil since it was pretty dry. It was edible, but if I make it again, i'll have to make some revisions. Just needs something more.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
It's a good basic recipe but I always do a 1/2 mayo 1/2 miracle whip mix, a touch of yellow mustard and a nice helping of sweet relish. if you dont like that much sweet use dill relish, it's a nice little crunch. I make them for work all the time and people will follow me around taking them from the tray before I get them to the table!!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I LOVE the cracker crumb coating!! I have been doing my chicken this way for a while now. I just add a little garlic powder and sometimes a little parmesan. I like to use the thin boneless breasts and you can do them in a pan on the stove too. If you don't want all the fat of the butter, try using olive oil! Bye-bye breadcrumbs!!!!
