Easy Paella

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
I am not sure what paella is supposed to taste like, but this was fantastic! Following other reviewer's advice I browned the chorizo (removed from dutch oven), then browned the chicken (removed from dutch oven), then browned the garlic/peppers/onion. Poured in the stock (never realized this was so much richer than broth!), rice, spices and mixed the meats back in. The lemon zest was key. Simmered for about 1/2 hour covered and threw in the shrimp about 10 minutes before serving. Subbed 2 packs of sazon instead of saffron. Yum! Very hearty and full of flavor. I love one pot dishes!! Thanks!

One-Dish Chicken and Stuffing Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
This tasted okay. Not enough flavor for our tastes, but I do appreciate the simplicity of the meal. It certainly wasn't bad, but I probably won't make it again. That shouldn't deter someone else from trying it, it just didn't suit our tastes. Thanks though!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
I don't know who in the world thought that mixing teriyaki and ranch was a good idea, but WOW! Quite yummy! I forgot to buy green onions but otherwise followed the recipe. Being lazy I used the ready-cooked bacon on top (last 10 minutes w/cheese) and I think that made it a dot saltier than I'd like. All in all the kids loved it so it's an A+ in my book! Will definitely add to the rotation. I'm so glad I tried it. :-)

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
The first time I made this I didn't think the chicken added any flavor to the dish, or thought maybe I had done something wrong. I tried it again last night (all veggie) including more garlic, some white wine, shallots, etc and it just didn't have enough flavor for the amount of time it took to put together. By all means this shouldn't stop anyone else from trying it, it just wasn't a dish that suits our taste buds. Still, thanks for posting it! :)

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Oh my these were so yummy! Like others, I created a dry rub (salt, paprika, sugar, garlic powder). I stripped the membranes [barf] and rubbed the spices in. Let them sit out a room temp in their foil for a couple hours before popping them in the oven. 2 hours later they were ready. I then stuck them under the low broiler for a few minutes with more sauce to make them extra gooey. We were all sticky and had sauce on our faces, hands, clothes and we couldn't have cared less. That was a fun supper. Thanks!

Tuna Ball

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
This sounded delightfully odd! I wasn't sure about cream cheese & tuna together but it is quite tasty! I accidentally bought sliced almonds instead of pecans but it still gave it a nice crunch. I'm definitely tucking this one away for my next party. Thanks!

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
This is so yummy and so comforting! I didn't have a turkey carcass so I just boiled a chicken and otherwise followed the directions. We've been pelted w/a tropical storm for 4 days now so we needed some comfort food. Added a bit of cornstarch to thicken up to stick to our bellies. Thank you!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
This was VERY easy and very tasty! The only change I made was to double the recipe and threw in a few splashes of white wine (in the beginning). My kids really liked it and my house smelled yummy all day! :-)

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
First let me say this is absolutely delicious! The only change I made was to use bread crumbs in place of the flour. I also have these cooking rubber band thingies that I'd picked up last Thanksgiving that I used in place of the toothpicks. That kept the breasts together, but not so tight it was restricting in any way. Now, this sounds like a pretty intimidating meal that I kept wanting to try but was nervous I'd mess it up but it was actually VERY simple to follow and it came out great. I'm so proud, it was like a gourmet supper! Thanks for a wonderful recipe that I'm sure I'll use over and over.

Touchdown Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I know some people are hesitant to try recipes that have only been rated by a couple folks, but this one you must try! The combinations of the pepper/hot and the brown sugar, along with the bitterness from the vinegar and beer...there are so many hearty flavors that truly make this delicious. I didn't change a thing! Thank you!

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Mmmmm...yummy! Based on other reviews I boiled the (whole) potatoes for about 1/2 hour earlier in the day. Then before supper I sliced them thin with the mandoline. I skipped the butter and subbed the garlic slices for a few shakes of adobo seasoning (I use that on EVERYTHING). I love garlic but was just feeling a bit lazy! Since I had the mandoline out I also sliced up some vidalia onions and layered them with the potatoes. Otherwise I followed the directions and baked for an hour uncovered. Served it with baked tilapia so it didn't feel quite as fattening. LOL. Thanks! :)

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
The meat is fantastic! I used that part of th e recipe and then made chimis after it was shredded (rolled in flour tortillas, brushed with butter and baked). I threw my roast with all the ingredients in the crock pot and it was ready when I came home. I'll definitely use this over and over.

Three Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was pretty tasty! I did doctor up my sauce with some ground beef and diced tomatoes as we like it chunky. I also used the ziploc bag method of stuffing the shells. Messy? Oh yes. But worth it! Also my prep time was more like an hour but I'm pretty slow, LOL. :-)

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
I was heistant about making this dish and kept eyeing it. Finally tried it tonight. Very good! I used carrots, snap beans, celery, cabbage and red bell peppers. I stirred in 3 cups of brown rice to the cooked dish and served all together. The veggies were still crunchy and everyone seemed to like it a lot. My only concern was that it was too salty (not for the kids), but I'm sure that was my fault for not measuring the soy sauce. I'll definitely try this one again (and measure the soy...LOL)

Cajun Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
There are too many noodles or not enough sauce in this recipe. First, let me say the taste is incredible! However, next time I'll probably try it with a penne pasta instead of layering and baking. I did 3 layers of noodles - there wasn't enough sauce (probably my fault for not interpreting the directions right). Had it been a tad juicier it would def be 5 stars. I too used homemade sauce rather than the jarred stuff (I don't care for those). Overall this is a delicious dish, I just need to find the right wet/dry balance. :-)

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
These were pretty good, the sauce seemed to be lacking something although I'm not sure what. I'm not sure I liked the thickness of the meat/bean mixture and I did thin it out a bit with some leftover beef broth I had in the fridge. Otherwise everyone seemed to enjoy them and they were so easy to make! I'll try again but maybe experiment a little.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
The bread turned out quite yummy! I made 2 with nuts, 2 without to suit the family's tastes. I did have to leave them in about 30 more minutes to get them cooked thru but it was well worth it!

BBQ Chili Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
My family really enjoyed this easy to prepare supper. I doubled the recipe but added a lot more bbq sauce (a tangy honey sauce). They gobbled up every bit. I'll definitely keep this one handy.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
Oh my, this was sooo tasty. And the other reviewers are right, it makes your entire house smell like an authentic Italian restaurant. The only thing I did not care for was the tortellini. It's probably my fault cuz I bought frozen ones but I think next time I'll just use elbow or bow-tie, not cheese stuffed tortellini. Otherwise this is a gourmet tasting meal. Thanks! **Updated review - made with a half-pound or so of elbow macaroni instead of tortellini - WOW!! Restaurant quality at home! 5+ stars now!**

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This really is a delicious and versatile recipe. This is the 3rd time I've made it now and this is how we've decided we like it best: 2 10 inch tortillas & then 1 halved tortilla on each side (straight side to the edge of the pan). Half the meat mixture (2 lb ground turkey, diced yellow onion, taco seasoning, 1 14.5 can diced tomatoes & 1 can rotele), 2 cups shredded monterey/colby. Another layer of tortillas. Next is the ricotta with 1 egg and 1 4 oz can chilies whipped together and a can of corn over the top. Another layer of tortillas. Rest of meat with 2 small cans sliced black olives. Another layer of tortillas. 8 oz sour cream + 8 oz salsa mixed over the top of that, topped with 2 cups of mexi-cheese and sliced green onions on top. Bake as directed. This makes enough to feed myself and 3 growing boys with plenty to take into work to share. Thanks so much for the ideas and the recipe!
