Enticing Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
My boyfriend said I had to give this 5 stars. It was delicious. Only changes I made was to leave out the green peppers because I didn't have any, use salsa because that's what I had, and pepper jack and cheddar cheeses. I'll definintely make it again. In fact, it was so good, he said he'd make it!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
We both enjoyed this very much. The only thing I would change is to double the sauce because it was so good, we wanted more! I had a chicken breast leftover, so I dived it, made more sauce, and put it over pasta, which was very good as well.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Flavor was good, but I found the chicken a little dry. I used breasts and baked at 400 for 30 minutes, per another's suggestion, but I wasn't watching the clock closely, so maybe I overcooked. Will try again.

Cranberry Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Delicious! The only downside is you will have to cut thick slices if you want a nice presentation for guests. That is, if you consider meat so tender it falls apart a downside!

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
My boyfriend described this as "tasty", but said he would add more tomatoes and more cheese. Of course, I had already doubled both of those, knowing he would say that! I made several changes, but all staying within the idea of the recipe. I increased the broth to 1 cup as several reviews had said it evaporated and still ended up adding more water to the pan. I didn't want the added salt of the broth, but white wine would probably have been good as well. I used 1 fresh red pepper and 1 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes, pepper jack cheese, and increased balsamic vinegar to 1 Tbsp. I also used garlic salt on the chicken and omitted the fresh garlic (boyfriend's preference, not mine). Served with mashed potatoes. Definitely will make again.

Apricot Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
Next time I would cut all of the apricots in half so they soften quicker without overcooking the chicken. Very tasty!

Couscous Salad with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
My boyfriend and I have been trying to add different grains to our menu, but our first couscous attempt was a little bland - he described it as sawdust. I tried this even though I wasn't sure about the blend of flavors. We both thought it was great and he gladly took leftovers for lunch the next day! I used orange-flavored Craisins because it was what I had. I was worried they might be too sweet, but they were not. I did pre-plump them as was suggested. Light and tasty summer recipe. Will definitely make again.

Mississippi Mud Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
Added the marshmellows on top per another's suggestion. Boyfriend and I were not crazy about these the first day (more of a cake than a brownie to me), but both agreed it was better the next day. It was a hit when I served it day-old. And the frosting is delicious if you are looking for a good, fudgey frosting!

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
We were not crazy about this. Much prefer Balsamic Braised Chicken.

Couscous with Mushrooms and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
We liked the flavor, but agreed it could use more tomatoes. I'm not sure my quantities were right - used 1 cup of dry couscous and a dozen grape tomatoes. Will make again with more tomatoes, but might leave out the cheese. It didn't add much, in my opinion.

Pineapple Chicken Delight

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
The veggies were great, but the chicken didn't absorb much flavor even though I marinated it in juice and sauce as recommended. Also, I sliced the potatoes thin, but still seemed to overcook the chicken before the potatoes were done.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Even though I did not marinate for the full 8 hours, this was still tasty, moist, and delicious chicken. Even the leftovers got compliments! Next time I will marinate longer, plus make some extra to pour over as sauce because it's so good you want more.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Very good. I tripled the sauce because we like sauce. Next time I will add an extra apple as well. May try baking or cooking it all together to flavor the chops more.

Slow Cooker Italian Moose Roast Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
This is not for the faint of taste buds. The pepperoncini give it quite a kick, but it is very good. I made with vension. Reheats well, too. In fact, my boyfriend is taking leftovers with him hunting this weekend!

Spinach Lasagna III

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I made for a family birthday party and it went over very well. I made a few minor changes - used frozen spinach, which was fine. Doubled the mozzarella because I like more cheese. Also, I put a layer of noodles and sauce on top and put cheese on for the last 15 minutes of baking. Note - if you make ahead and refrigerate, it needs to bake for about 90 minutes to heat through.

Cake is very moist. Double frosting if you are like me and like lots of frosting.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I've made this a couple of times and it is a hit at our house and for our SuperBowl party. If I'm making for dinner, I double the sauce out of personal preference.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
A favorite in our house. And whenever I can get my fiance to say "very tasty" about chicken, I know I've done well! Best if you pound the chicken breasts to make them thinner. Good with Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli from this site and some pasta.

Peach Pork Picante

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Whenever I get "very tasty" from my fiance, I know I've done well. Will probably try with chicken as well, as recommended by some others.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
I made this for Easter. I might have rated it a 4 because even with separating the eggs and using 3 layers as suggested by others, it still came out dense. But the flavor and the rave reviews justify the 5 stars. My fiance has requested this for his birthday next month, but with more frosting. I used a cream cheese frosting. I also pureed a 16 oz. container of frozen strawberries and used the extra puree in between the layers. Just think first and frost the layer and then put the puree on. Otherwise, it is hard to spread the frosting and the layers slide. Obvious if you think about it, but not obvious enough for me to do it right on the first layer.
