Homemade Chicken Cacciatore, Sicilian-Style

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Great! I changed it a bit though...I made it all in the slow cooker, which made everything SO easy. I used skinless thighs. I didnt sautee anything...just put the chicken on top of sliced onion and bell peppers in the crock pot, mixed the sauce in a separate bowl and added on top of the chicken. I added a can of tomato paste and left out the flour. Next time I'll try a little red pepper to give it a kick! Served over mashed potatoes, which was a nice change :)

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
delicious. Add the milk, egg and brown sugar to a cool pan and gradually bring the heat up to keep the egg from just being a scrambled egg in your milk. Make sure you whisk the egg well and continue to stir as the heat rises. You can cut the sugar back to 1/4 or 1/3 cup. 1/2 would be way too sweet. As written it makes two good sized bowls or 3 quite small servings. This is the best oatmeal we've ever had :)

World's Best Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I added a bay leaf and subbed some red wine for the water. I also used quite a bit more garlic. Its a good base recipe for you to spice up the way you like it!

Spicy Chicken Curry Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
This soup was ok...but not memorable. The spiciness/pungency of the curry paste you use must vary significantly because 1 tbs did not make mine very flavorful or at all spicy. We were dumping red pepper and soy sauce in our bowls to give it more flavor. I used Thai Kitchen brand which i've enjoyed for other recipes...but if I make this again i'll have to add more than called for even though other reviewers said theirs turned out too spicy. You really have to season to taste with this one. I also added some celery, yellow onion and red bell pepper which was nice. I'll also add less stock so its thicker if there is a next time.

Scallop Pesto Pasta

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I didn't flour the scallops. Just pan seared them in butter. I used a little bit more pesto than called for and added a little bit of olive oil to add some moisture. Will definitely make it again.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
This was DIVINE!! Chocolate desserts seems to always be the fav in our family...but this is one of the first I've brought to a family gathering than went faster than the brownies! PLEASE don't skip the part where you coat the pan in sugar (i skipped the butter and just went for some PAM spray though). The sugar crystallizes onto the cake as it bakes making it unbelievably good! Also...be sure to let your butter (use butter not margarine please!) and your eggs come to room temp before getting started. Top with fresh peach slices and homemade whip cream. It's heaven on your fork.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
wow. The reviews for this recipe are spot on. It's even better than it sounds. I did a few things differently by roasting the pear and onion as well...but the concept remained the same. I steamed the butternut for about 10 minutes (cut it in half, scoop out seeds and put it cut side down in a baking dish with 1/4 inch of water). Then pour off the water, peel and cut the squash into 1 inch cubes, add the pears (peeled, cored and quartered) and the onion (chopped) to the baking sheet. Toss with a bit of evoo. Bake about 35-40 minutes or until beginning to caramelize. Continue with the recipe as directed. It's amazing.

Asian Coleslaw with Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
I'm actually only reviewing this recipe for the candied walnut portion. The salad looks amazing though and I'm sure to try it in the future. But, I was specifically looking for a recipe for candied walnuts and this one was great. The only thing I changed was sprinkling some salt on them as they cooled. I like "salted caramel".

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I really didn't want to fry the wings so i tried this recipe. My conclusion is that there's no need for the extra fat, mess, and trouble! My only recommendations are: cook on parchment paper so they don't stick and you don't have to spray. Double sauce and reserve half to drizzle/toss with wings after they cook.

Miso Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I used white miso. Also added a generous amount of sliced mushrooms and doubled the green onions. I used firm tofu and prefer it diced very small to avoid a 'texture issue' for my husband. Great recipe!

Butternut and Apple Harvest Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
We really enjoyed this soup. I've tried other butternut squash soup recipes before and have never been happy with them. I'll hang on to this one for sure but I'm only giving it 4 stars because of the changes I made. I left out the leeks because I didn't have them on hand. I used and entire small squash which turned out to be 3+ cups. I used a Fuji apple because it's what I had. I used a tablespoon or so of apple cider vinegar in place of the wine (per other reviewers recommendation). I added just a dash of nutmeg and several dashes of cinnamon along with a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little dimension. Then the major change I made was LEAVE OUT THE CREAM! I'm sure it's very tasty with it. But I'm trying to eliminate some post-baby fat and this soup does NOT need the extra fat if it suits you to leave it out. It's delicious without it.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Very yummy! Great for a football game! I used chicken tenders (breasts pounded out and cut into strips). I added a little onion and garlic powder and seasoning salt to the flour mixutre too. And i shallow fried (browned them) in a skillet rather than deep frying to save on some calories/oil. We made them into buffalo chicken sandwiches. On a hamburger bun with mayo, blue cheese, onion and lettuce. They were a huge hit. We'll do these again for sure - and next time with a little more hot sauce for more kick.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
My husband had to listen to me carry on and on about how much i liked this recipe all night! I recommend using several cloves of minced fresh garlic. It's sweet roasted flavor is outstanding with the veggies. Also, I like beets but I feel the sweet potatoes should be more prominent. For two people I did 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 and onion, 3 small sweet potatoes and one tennis ball sized beet. We would have eaten more but we practically licked the pan :)

Grilled Salmon with Peanut Hoisin Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This is a good recipe - I can see myself doing it again. My husband particularly likely the sauce - it's similar, actually better IMO, than the sauce for "thai chicken tenders" on this site. It'd be good on grilled chicken as well.

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
We enjoyed this recipe. I didn't turn out quite as elegant/refined as I'd like for guests but it tasted yummy and was very simple to make. For the right occasion we'll make this one again. Even those who were skeptical of the concept ended up enjoying it.

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I used an 11 lb shank ham. Cooked 6 hours in the oven, cut and removed the fat. I cooked the last hour with the glaze in my crockpot. It was delish!!

Empanadas

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Deeeeelicious! The dough is excellent and could be filled many different ways. Here's what I did after reading other reviews: divide dough in 2 smaller balls before chilling overnight. Only take one out at a time (you have a fairly narrow window between too hard and too sticky to work with). If you don't like wrestling with the rolling pin you can do what I did - roll into 1 inch ball and use the bottom on a cup or small plate to flatten. them. SO easy! I filled some with chopped up apple pie filling with cinnamon and the other with canned pumpkin with pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar. Both were outstanding for a fall season treat. Be sure to roll them in the cinnamon sugar right away - before they cool! They are best served warm. Great recipe! Thanks for posting it Rosina!

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
simple. That's how coleslaw should be. The ONLY change I make is adding a little sprinkle of celery salt. this recipe is a keeper. My fav way of eating it is on top of a BBQ beef or pulled pork sandwich!

Awesome Red Pepper Hummus Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
this is way too acidic. Just a teaspoon of lemon juice is plenty. i'd add water or evoo if you need more liquid to get the desired consistency.
