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.

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.

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.

Cheddar Spirals

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Used fat-free half-and-half, reduced butter to 1/4 cup, and topped with some garlic salt (something I picked up from my mother). I cooked on low for about an hour and then added the spirals. Made this for our 4th of July barbeque and everyone loved it even though it got a little overcooked because we ate later than I had planned.

Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I only had 2 cups of rhubarb, so I adjusted the recipe by 1/3 and put in a 9x9 pan for 35 minutes. It was delicious and a big hit with my husband who loves strawberry-rhubarb pie. Will definitely make again using the correct amounts.

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.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I have been looking for a good meatball recipe and I have finally found it! My meatballs were on the small side, so thebaking time was just a touch too long, but still good. I ate one right after they came out of the oven because they smelled so good! Served with Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata from this site.

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!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
If you don't like spice, cut back on the red pepper flakes, but this was a delicious spicy tomato sauce. I served it with Meatball Nirvana from this site instead of the chicken. Agree with others this doesn't make 6 servings. More like 3-4.

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.

Grilled Chicken Salad with Seasonal Fruit

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
My fiance and I loved everything about this salad. In fact, he said I could make it anytime. Flavors combine nicely and dressing is delicious. I did reduce sugar and oil as suggested by others and marinated my chicken breasts in balsamic vinegar. May add blue cheese crumbles next time. I think it would add a nice kick.

Tropical Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Delicious! Salsa has a nice kick to it. I left out the cardamom seeds as I didn't have any. Made the salsa the night before and marinated the pork all day.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
This was a huge hit at a family dinner. As some other reviewers suggested, I like to shred my meat before it is finished cooking so it better absorbs the sauce. I shredded after about 5 hours.

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.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
RIDICULOUS! That's how good these are! I was glad to read they could be frozen, but truthfully we will eat them all before I get them in the freezer. I did cut butter to 3/4 cup as others recommended to save a little on fat and calories. I softened the butter in the microwave and then added the pb to the bowl to finish melting the butter and soften the pb. Made it very easy to mix. I will probably add an extra cup of chocolate chips on top as anotehr reviewer did, but just because I like a little more chocolate. These are great the way they are written. I will try not to make these too often as we eat way too many!

White Chocolate Blondie Brownies

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
Made these for my husband's birthday and he told me not to change a thing! Here's what I had done - used 3/4 c. each white sugar and brown sugar, 1/2 c. each white chocolate and butterscotch chips and no salt. Also used spelt flour due to family gluten issues, but would probably also be good with 1/2 white whole wheat flour.

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
My husband requested strawberry cake with strawberry frosting for his birthday, so I tried this. I used frozen strawberries with sugar as I needed 1/2 a container for the cake. I did strain the puree, as I always do when I make puree. Frosting was delicious, but the strawberry cake, frosting, and filling all together were a little sweet, even for our family of sweet toothes! But I think this with Strawberry Cake Filling would be awesome on a devils food cake. Will definitely do it again.
