Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Followed advice of others and doubled the soy sauce, ginger, and garlic and added closer to end of cooking. I also mixed cornstarch with broth (instead of water) first, and added toward end. Added a bit of brown sugar. If I don't have time to marinate, I just cook the chicken in 2 tablespoons soy sauce with garlic and ginger. I also find that I need less chicken than stated, but that's just personal preference on the ratio of veggies to meat.

Chicken Broccoli Ca - Unieng's Style

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Delicious. I didn't have oyster sauce, so I just used more soy sauce. I also reduced the pepper a bit, and added a tad more sugar. I used baby bok choy. Also, I steamed the broccoli for a few minutes before adding in with the bok choy, and used chicken broth instead of water.

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
I am mostly writing this for those of you who discover that you didn't have enough strawberries, or if you would like to make it, and you don't have quite enough strawberries. I had a little under 4 cups (about 1 lb.) of strawberries, and found out when filling the pie crust that my jelly did not go far enough to fill the spaces. To compensate I created kind of a strawberry cream pie by whipping 1 1/2 cups heavy cream with 2 tbsp. sugar until past stiff peaks (helps keep better in fridge to whip a bit longer). I used the whipped cream to fill in all the spaces and make a topping. I then topped it all with semisweet chocolate chips. My crust was homemade (see Pie Crust IV). It was delicious. In terms of the general recipe, I followed the advice of others in a few ways: I used more than half of the strawberries intact in the pie crust, and mashed the lesser part. I followed the advice of others, and "painted" the crust with 2 oz. semisweet chocolate chips melted (let it harden before adding the filling - it keeps pie from getting soggy). I also reduced the sugar to about 3/4 cup, and the water to 1/2 cup. I just added all the ingredients together in the pot and brought to a boil, stirring continuously, and kept it at a boil for 3 minutes.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Very quick and easy, and my husband absolutely loved it. I did sautee the butter, garlic, onion, celery and carrots. I then added bite-sized raw pieces of chicken along with the broth, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and a few shakes of poultry seasoning and thyme. I brought it to a boil and added uncooked gluten-free penne noodles to the boiling water and simmered for 20 minutes. I understand why some people cook the noodles separately because my noodles absorbed all the broth (most of which was vegetable by the way since I had it on hand), so I ended up with a really delicious chicken soup pasta dish, and my husband said the noodles were really delicious because they absorbed all the broth. I could have easily added more broth to make it soupier, but we actually really enjoyed it as a pasta dish. Next time I'll add more broth though. I served with parmesan on top.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Really delicious. Everyone loved this banana bread. I did follow the advice of one reviewer and combined dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, made a whole in the center of the dry ingredients and added the wet along with the sour cream. I halved the recipe and made only 1 loaf. It turned out great.

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Very delicious. I doubled the ground beef. I only had a little bit of cheddar, so I used part cheddar and part mozzarella (and added tapatio sauce and cayenne pepper to liven up the milder flavor of the cheese). I used a little bit more carrots, celery, and onion. I also used beef broth because I had it on hand, but I imagine chicken broth would be just as delicious.

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Wow. This bread is fantastic. I had never even tasted beer bread before, but this was so easy and delicious. I did follow advice of reviewers and put 1/3 cup sugar instead of the stated amount, let the dough sit in the loaf pan for at least half an hour, and I drizzled 3 Tablespoons of melted butter on top of the dough directly before cooking: the top crust was amazing, the middle was soft, perfect texture. I served it with butter and honey alongside a beef dish. One of my favorite recipes on this site so far. Other reviewers recommended dividing the dough into 2 loaf pans - maybe I'll try that later, but the original recipe loaf pan worked great for me. PLEASE TRY EATING THIS WITH TRADER JOE'S COOKIE BUTTER ON TOP! It's like it was made for this bread :)

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
Loved this. I added more chopped fresh tomatoes and spinach to the skillet. I made my own alfredo sauce (a little more than a cup whipping cream, 1/4 cup butter, 1 1/2 cups freshly grated parmesan, 1 clove garlic, freshly chopped parsley - sautee the butter and garlic, add whipping cream and simmer for 5 minutes, add cheese and parsley). It turned out fantastic. I'll make this again.

Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Exactly what I was looking for in a chocolate cream pie. I did follow the advice of others and added 2 tsp. cornstarch and 1/2 c. milk. Consistency was great. For the crust, I used "Pie Crust IV" on allrecipes, and it was a great compliment. I made a whipped topping from 3/4 cup whipping cream and 1 Tbs sugar (I whipped slightly beyond normal whipped cream "stiff peaks" so that it was more sturdy and longer lasting in the fridge.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Very delicious, while also being light and healthy - definitely highlights the flavor of the fish in subtle way. I sauteed minced garlic in the butter, used fresh parsley, added salt and pepper to the fish, and baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Fantastic! My husband said it was restaurant quality, and it was so easy to make. I did use marinated artichoke hearts, and I also used 1.5t minced garlic and a dash of salt and pepper in place of the garlic pepper. Turned out great, and I will be making this again.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This is a great way to enjoy lunch throughout the week. I halved the recipe and followed the advice of others, plus a few of my own additions: 1) caramelized 1 small onions with 1 green bell pepper and 1T brown sugar, added corn and green chilies towards the end of caramelizing process and added a dash of salt and pepper, 2) used 1 chopped fresh tomato with about 5 oz. salsa instead of canned diced tomatoes, 3) 2 cans black beans (didn't have pinto beans), 4) mixed 1/2 package taco seasoning into my cooked brown rice, 5) mixed cheddar and mozzarella cheese (that's what I had on hand), 6) added lime juice to the entire mixture, 7) served with sour cream. My husband loved it, and only suggested the addition of a meat as a possible boost, but it's great with or without meat.

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Amazing. Best contrast of tart and sweet. I did take a shortcut on the crust, and used Trader Joe's frozen pie crust, but I will be attempting the crust next time. Even people who weren't into pie thought it was amazing, and that it hits the cherry pie flavor just right - not too sweet, not too sour. I did use the revised version of this recipe that has more cherries (2 lbs), less sugar, and a bit more cornstarch, which was according to the reviews of others. Fantastic.
