Sun-Dried Tomato With Fresh Basil Spread

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
The easiest dip to make. Served with crackers at a party for an alternative to a cheese spread. I agree with the previous comment - the appearance of this is not very appealing, but the taste is definitely worth it! Maybe dress it up with some fresh basil sprinkled over the top when done? I love the short ingredient list, and the unique flavor had me coming back for seconds, thirds, etc...

Avocado Soup with Chicken and Lime

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2005
Wasn't as exciting as I expected. Although it's most likely due to my adjusting the flavors to suit our needs (lemon instead of lime juice, no jalepenos, no cilantro). It was edible, just not our favorite.

Romano Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
Good mix of flavors in the breading. Easy to put together. I also cooked mine in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 to get a bit of a crisper coating. Might be good with an extra slice of swiss added to the top of each piece of chicken during the last 10 minutes of cooking.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
This was okay. I used whole wheat crust cut from sliced bread and pulsed them in my food processor. I skipped cooking the chicken in the skillet and went straight into the oven. I cooked them for 30 minutes at 400, sprinkled shredded cheese blend over the tops of the breasts and returned them to the oven for another 10 minutes. WOrked great!

Chicken, Rice and Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
I didn't follow this recipe except for the ingredients. I turned my crock-pot on high and added two 14 oz cans of low-sodium chicken broth, 1 cup water, 8 ounces of white mushrooms cut into quarters and 2 cups instant brown rice. I sauted 2 carrots sliced into 1/2 inch pieces, 2 sliced celery stalks and 1 chopped onion in a small amount of olive oil until tender. I added them to the crock-pot. Then I cut chicken tenders into cubes and cooked in my pan for a few minutes with salt and pepper. I added the chicken to the crock-pot and added about a teaspoon of italian seasonings. I let it cook for an hour total and it was fine. However, I'd prefer to cook it a little longer and get really tender vegetables. Thanks for the inspiration!

Montreal Peppered Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
I used the Spicy Montreal Seasoning, also by McCormick and it tasted great! This recipe is so simple and takes minimal effort. I used lite soy sauce. I let the beef marinate for about an hour and broiled it in the oven for 10 minutes per side (I used two tenderloins that were pretty thick).

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
This made a very moist, tender chicken! The only changes I made were I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts, minced garlic and turkey bacon. This dish was so tasty! WIll make again!

Chicken-Prosciutto Bundles

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
Really good! I used dried basil instead of fresh -- added about 1/4 teaspoon to each bundle. The only adjustment I'll make next time is to skip browning the chicken in my pan because the prosciutto stuck a little.

Stir-Fry Pork with Ginger

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2004
Easy recipe for a filling dinner. I cut up a 1 pound pork tenderloin, added a bag of frozen "stir fry vegetables mix" and served with some brown rice on the side. I used Splenda in place of the sugar, and lite soy sauce only.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
This is definitely an easy recipe to make. Next time I will follow suggestions of others and add only 1/2 the tomato sauce (or just diced tomatoes instead). I also used cooking sherry and will only add 1/2 cup next time as it was a little saltier than I expected. Overall this recipe fits in well with my low-carb diet, no noodles for me, but it still tastes great!

Skillet Herbed Chicken with Mustard

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2003
We did not enjoy this recipe. There were too many herb flavors that competed with the unique honey-mustard flavor. I did add sliced white mushrooms after the first simmer, and they picked up a nice flavor from the wine. Despite the flavor being too overwhelming for us, it did make a very tender chicken! The method of cooking was very successful. I think if I looked to this recipe again I would, but leave out the tarragon and do honey-mustard only... OR, I'd leave out the honey-mustard and just use Italian seasonings.

Cheese Straws

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2003
very easy to make and tasty! the key is to, as others have suggested, is letting your butter and cheese come to room temp. i had no problem creaming the two together. i followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of adding in 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper into my dough (instead of sprinkling on after). i also ended up adding about a cup of water to make the dough come together. i rolled it out and cut into strips. and baked for 12-15 minutes. next time, because my dough was soft, i will try piping these through a pastry bag to form consistent sized straws. very good snack with minimal effort! thanks!

Saltimbocca alla Pollo

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2003
this is very similar to another recipe i've tried before, except it had asparagus rolled up inside as well. it was good! i'm not good at pounding the chicken out thin enough, so my rolls kind of came un-done - which was easily solved by holding them together with toothpicks. just have to remember to remove them before serving!

Skillet Chops with Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2003
a very quick dinner to pull together! i increased the grated parm to equal my bread crumbs (1/2 cup each) and added a dash of salt, pepper and garlic powder. after breading, i saved the leftover bread crumb mixture to add in with the soup & milk, as another reviewer suggested -- definitely thickened up the gravy to a rich and delicious sauce! and, because i added in the extra dry crumbs i had to increase the milk to 1-1/2 cups. i also added fresh sliced white mushrooms which added a nice surprise to the gravy. the gravy is what makes this dish! i only had two large-ish porkchops to cook and there was very little gravy left after we finished dinner! served with mashed potatoes and rolls, this made a great dinner. next time, i'll cook the pork chops a little longer in the first step to achieve a crispier coating on the outside.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2003
very easy and yummy recipe! i used a 9x13 casserole and baked at 325 for 40 minutes, as others suggested. i mixed in peanut butter and chocolate morsels. the only improvements that need to be made (on my part and not the recipe's) is to cook maybe 5 more minutes (the center was still a little doughy), and to add more chocolate morsels to the top, after baking possibly, just to achieve a chocolate/peanut butter combo. otherwise, just as is, this is a great dessert! (i have made this twice now, and we gobble them up in record time!)

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
simple and quick recipe. added in fresh, sliced vegetables -- yellow and green onions, mushrooms and carrots. marinated cubed chicken breasts and a handful of shrimp in some soy sauce, pepper and 1 teaspoon of ground ginger (not fresh). i browned the garlic first in some peanut oil, removed it and added it to the chicken and shrimp. then cooked all my other vegetables with a dash of soy sauce and removed them to a plate, while i cooked the chicken and shrimp mixture. then added the vegetables back in and let sit while i made some five minute rice. i used only about 1 tablespoon of soy sauce for the "sauce" with the cornstarch, sugar and water mixture since i'd added soy to the vegetables and meat before. i enjoyed this, but next time i'll omit the ginger since i didn't really think it added anything to the dish flavor.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2003
i left this is the oven for about 1 hour and 20 minutes at a slightly higher temperature for the cookie pie to cook all the way through. (i put an aluminum ring -- a pie pan with the center cut out -- on top of the pie to keep the crust edges from burning.) it was very rich and tasty right out of the oven, but i enjoyed it much better after having set it out overnight and eating the next day. i used a deep dish pie crust and had no problem with spills or too much mixture. good recipe, will keep it for an easy dessert!

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2003
this recipe was fairly easy. i only used one egg and could have gotten by on one cup of crumbs -- but i think that all depends on the size/quantity of your pork chops. i'd skip cooking the garlic next time and just add some garlic powder in with the crumbs instead. the taste was good, but nothing spectacular.
