Blueberry Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
I thought it was delicious! My only complaint was that my kids didn't like it. Not sure what the heck is wrong with them!!!

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
All 3 of my kids said they liked it, yay! That's really the ultimate goal for me. I didn't plan this recipe ahead of time, so I just used what I had on hand. So, I swapped frozen broccoli for fresh. Then I also added a can of cheddar broccoli soup because it seemed like it needed more "sauce." I also substituted sour cream w/ mayo because i didn't have any mayo on hand. I was able to whip this up ahead of time and then take my kids to sports and still have dinner ready to go afterwards....which is so great for busy parents!

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
My 6 year old son made this (with my help ofourse.) He loved them & gobbled them all up before the rest of the family even had a chance to give them a taste. What a great Halloween memory to savour!

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Nice fall recipe! I didn't have crystallized ginger or cloves, so I added a little nutmeg to even it out. The cupcakes came out nice & moist even baking at a high altitude. I topped with a cream cheese frosting & then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar for a touch of pretty. They tasted even better the next day after the frosting had stiffended up a bit.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
This recipe was fine, but nothing too special. If I made this again, I would definitly add some pine nuts...it lacked something, maybe crunch? But I don't think it impressed me enough that I would make it again.

Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
I pretty much made this festive cake, except I used angelfood cake. Although the angelfood made the cake really airy & refreshing, I didn't exactly have the proper sized pans because it won't cook in 1 "standard" 9x13 cake pan. I improvized by using 2 loaf pans, so my rectangle flag was a little square shaped. So, just be aware that if you want to go with angelfood, just check your pan sizes ahead of time. Happy 4th of July!!!

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Even my husband who is a meat-a-tarian really enjoyed this. It was really easy to make, which is great for me. I served it with corn bread & spanish rice & it made a great family meal.

California Cherry and Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I pretty much stuck to the recipe, except I just didn't use chicken because I don't care for meat on my salads. Great meal to have while watching calories. Quick to whip up too! Yum!

Slow Cook Thai Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
It definitly needs to be served over chow mein noodles. We thought it was too salty on it's own.

Broccoli Chicken Roli

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I will definitly make this again! To simplify a bit I just made it in a basic rectangle shape and used 2 cans of croissants; 1 on the bottom, & 1 on top. I also used 1 heaping tablespoon of horseradish-mustard, because I didn't have dijon. This tasted great!

Lasagna Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Overall this was pretty good. Somehow I only managed to buy 1 jar of alfredo sauce, so I ended up 1/2 ing the recipe, which turned out to be plenty for a family of 5...with leftovers!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This was a really tasty treat. I would suggest cutting back on the pepper, because I thought 1/2 tsp was too overpowering. 1/4 tsp would be plenty in my opinion. I also substituted 1 cup milk with 1 cup heavy cream. I wanted to make the soup creamier and also I had some cream leftover that I didn't want to waste. I also increased the celery to 1/2 cup. That was a good call. More would have been fine too. I also doubled the amount of ham because I was serving this as the main meal for my family. Really great flavor, I will make this again, but with less pepper next time!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
The recipe called for 2 cans of soup. I only used one, and it definitly did not need more than one. I would also suggest adding more rice, I thought it could have been ricier. Overall, I really enjoyed it, but my husband thought it was bland (he's crazy) and my kids 2, 5, & 8 didn't like it either. But I did!

Amazing Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
If you have kids, this will be a good recipe to try out. My son thought it looked sort-of like chicken nuggets because of the orange color, so he was much more inclined to be enthused about this dish. The chicken was good, but unfortunately I ran short of the french fried onions, so I will have to make it again to get an accurate read on the recipe. But, we liked it...even without the onion flavor (but I have a feeling with that added it will be even better!)

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
My suggestions to improve this would be: cook at a higher temp, maybe 350 for a longer amount of time. Maybe 30 minutes instead of 20. We thought it was luke-warm and definitely could have been hotter. I boiled the chicken, but next time I'm going to pan fry it with seasonings to make the chicken more flavorful. This dish tasted great though. I will make this again for sure.

Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
My husband & I both thought the dill overpowered the cheese mixture. I would definitly suggest cutting back on the dill. Other than that, I found the recipe pretty easy to make. I like recipes with not too many ingredients or steps. Keeping it simple for my busy life!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
First I would suggest if you want "sticky" chicken, then follow other reviewers suggestions for thicker sauce. If you follow the recipe as it is, only one side will be sticky. The sauce just rolled off my drumsticks as I poured it on. Second, Even though I put down tin foil, the sauce stuck badly to my pan. I was not happy about that. The smell after about 20 minutes was not pleasant. Although it tasted fine (my husband actually quite enjoyed it) it was definitly not a keeper in my opinion.

Ham and Swiss Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I pretty much followed the instructions on this one although I did amp up the portions to make it serve more. I increased the milk, added a can of cream of mushroom soup in place of the mushrooms, and also added peas. The best suggestion I could make is to cover the casserole w/ aluminum foil because the top of mine was a little dried out when I took it out of the oven.

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
This was o.k., but not something that will really stick in my memory. I don't know if it was really special enough that I'd make it again.
