No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
This was really good, thanks! I used slightly different vegetables based on what I had on hand and whole wheat pasta. The balsamic/zesty flavor mixed with the grilled taste of roasted veggies was perfect. Don't leave out the lemon zest; it really adds to the flavor. But I did skip the cheese as hubby doesn't care for it.

Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
I used my own dough (2 cups flour, 1/3 cup butter, 1 tbsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt) in place of the biscuit mix. Based on the other reviews saying it wasn't cheesy enough, I upped the cheddar to 2 cups, but still. The melted cheese taste and texture gets lost somewhere in the biscuit. Oh, and I mashed my own garlic, mixed it in with melted butter and brushed that on top. These were good and we loved them, but they weren't cheesy.

Princess Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Great cookies! I had a little problem with the glaze though. I wasn't sure whether to add it before or after baking. And I think I chose the wrong option, which was before baking. Because when I drizzled some over the top, it just kind of pooled under the dough and made it stick to the pan while it baked. But even then, the texture and taste were lovely. Thanks for the recipe.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
reviewing this as I'm eating it. Excellent recipe. Diced my own tomatoes, used 3 cloves of garlic, skipped the butter, and used a hand blender at the end to make it creamy. so quick and easy!

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
With my slight modifications, I'm rating this a 5 star. I've never cooked chicken noodle soup in my life so I'm thankful for this recipe giving me a base to work with. I used 1 cup carrots, 1 cup onions, and 1 cup of celery. I followed other reviewer's advice and sauteed the veggies in garlic and butter. I added the broth. All chicken broth, cause that's all I had. I used 3 chicken breasts, cubed, and dumped that in the broth. Bring to a boil and then let it simmer for 30 minutes. Then I added the egg noodles for another 10 minutes at the end. Delicious!! A lot of the seasoning stuck to the chicken and gave it a lot of flavor. This soup definitely hit the spot. The entire family loved it!

Penne with Chicken and Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
Halved the pasta and doubled the sauce, using extra garlic, chicken broth, and flour to thicken. Came out great! I'll be making this again

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IX

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
For someone who's never baked cookies before, these came out pretty yummy. I modified the recipe based on the other reviews that stated these were not sweet enough and too bland. I used 3 1/2 cups Quaker rolled oats, 1 1/4 cups of sugar, 1/3 cup raisins and the rest chopped walnuts, and a generous spoonful of the spices. (The same amount the recipe calls for, just a tad bit more) The batter came out grainy and loose so I hand molded them into the baking dish instead of spooning. Well, like I said, I've never baked cookies before so I didn't know how to shape them. My cookies came out HUGE. They don't spread that much, so the way they went into the oven is basically the same way they came out :/ I got about 15 cookies instead of the 48 the recipe calls for. I'm just lucky that the first (and only) batch came out great I guess. I baked them for about 16 minutes. They looked a little strange coming out of the oven but I guess that was my fault. I was surprised that they tasted delicious. Not oily at all like some reviewers said. Crispy around the edges. Not chewy, but crumbly and soft on the inside. My husband doesn't care about texture or appearance... as long as it tastes good. He loved them and loved that they were healthy but they were a little sweet. (I thought the sweetness was perfect but the cinnamon was a bit strong) I'll be making this again whenever we have a cookie craving.

Chicken and Pasta Casserole with Mixed Vegetables

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
I followed the instructions but with some changes. I used 2 1/2 cups fusili tri-colored pasta, 4 chicken breasts cubed, 2 cups frozen mixed veggies (peas, corn, carrots), 2 cans cream of chicken, fresh minced garlic, and panko bread crumbs, no butter. Halfway through baking, I added the half cup of milk other reviewers suggested to keep it moist. It came out creamy and delicious. The husband thought it was great. No complaints except for what I would change for myself. The amount of chicken I used was a lot in proportion to the pasta/veggies. I'll use 3 breasts next time. And I'll use fresh veggies of my choice instead of frozen, mixed. I also forgot to add salt. It needed a bit of salt.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This was really good. When I was mixing the dressing, it tasted too vinegary and I was a little worried but once mixed with the spinach, the flavor is wonderful. I used a bag of dried cranberries and cherries. The only thing I left out were the poppy seeds cause I couldn't find any in the grocery. I served the dressing on the side and we drizzled as much as we wanted. My picky health conscious husband loved it and asked if I could add walnuts next time. Don't drown the salad in dressing, as the taste of vinegar could be overwhelming... Just add enough to coat the spinach. Thanks for this great recipe.. Ill be making it regularly.

Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I followed the other reviewers advice and seasoned the wings with garlic then baked them for 30 min on each side before basting them so they would come out crispy. If you're going to arrange the wings on foil, definitely grease the foil with oil or whatever u use or else they'll completely stick (I had to stop halfway thru baking to peel the wings off the foil, then I just got rid of the foil altogether) I followed the glaze proportions exactly. It was on the sweeter side but my sister in law and I loved them. We'll probably be making this again over the weekend with bigger wings and will split them into two trays: this glaze and a spicy one for more variety.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
This was so easy to make! And I'm a clumsy beginner in the kitchen. I followed the recipe and used Tostitos Medium Salsa. I liked the way it came out. I tested it out on my parents. Dad said it was good, but a little too salty for him. Mom said it was perfect.
