Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
My family loves these enchiladas. They are tasty & nice for after work because I can make them ahead & just pop in the oven when I get home. I skip the beans because my husband won't eat them. I always use a homemade salsa & reduced fat cream cheese in the mix. My husband likes me to make extra cream cheese/salsa mixture to serve on top. They are also yummy if you add some sliced black olives baked right inside the enchiladas. This dish is a regular feature on our menu. Thanks for sharing!

Chinese Firecrackers

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
These were amazing. So much flavor in a small bite. I was short on time, so instead of making the "firecrackers" out of phyllo dough sheets, I brought the pre-formed frozen phyllo shells. I stuffed the filling into the shells & heated them up.

Chicken 'n' Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
My family really enjoyed this recipe. The only complaint my husband had was "too many carrots" so I will change up the veggies that I use next time. I also think it could use a little more seasoning - salt & pepper & some more onions. I skipped the bacon, but may try it next time to pick up some of the saltiness. Overall delicious, it's a keeper!

Slow-Simmered Chicken Rice Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Made this for a family get together & everyone loved it, even the kids. I didn't have time to slow cook, so I simmered on the stove. I took the advice of previous reviews & waited to throw in the rice until the last hour. Even with that, I still needed to add about 3 additional cups of stock towards the end of cooking as the rice soaks it all up. As a personal preference, I added 3 sliced carrots & 3 cloves of minced garlic. Loved the subtle kick the red pepper flakes added.

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Absolutely loved this salad. I didn't have any raspberry vinagarette, so I used Ken's fat free raspberry pecan dressing. I've made it with the dried cranberries, and also tried with dried cherries when I ran out of the cranberries, great either way. Delicious!!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
My family LOVED this recipe, and it was even better 2 days later as leftovers. The only change that I made was to replace the water with extra tomato sauce. Instead of cooking the noodles ahead of time, I just soaked them in hot tap water for about 10 min. They were still very firm when I put them in the casserole dish & they came out perfect. The lasagna held it's shape and was easy to serve. This will be a weekend staple in our rotation as it does take some time to prepare. Thanks for a great recipe.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Fantastic! My whole family loved this recipe, the teenager devoured every remaining last bite. The only changes that I made was to triple the garlic, half the dill and to sautee all the veggies lightly before baking. It looks & tastes wonderful, would be good for company - makes it look like you slaved over a hot stove for hours, but in reality is very easy to make.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Huge hit at thanksgiving dinner. I doubled the recipe (except for the butter, kept that at 1/2 cup) and baked in a 9x13 pan for about an hour. Fantastic.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I am just learning to embrace soup making, and this was a great one. I used spicy chicken sausage, and kale instead of spinach. I also used half & half instead of cream because it was what I had on hand. I also cubed the potatoes and used about 8 of them. Delicious!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Really good recipe! I followed directions exactly, except doubled the mushrooms. Paired it with a side of rice pilaf & fresh asparagus and it was a huge hit. Simple enough for a weeknight, and still delicious.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
We LOVED this soup, it was so flavorful. My husband doesn't usually like it when I make soup for dinner, because it doesn't feel it's enough to keep him satisifed. But he raved about this soup paired with a simple ham sandwich. I doubled all of the ingredients, except for the basil. I also added about 1/3 cup sour cream because I had it one hand and I thought it would add to the "baked potato" flavor. I let everything simmer at the end for close to an hour and it really let the flavors meld together nicely. I thought it looked a little on the thin side, so I mixed a couple tbs of cornstarch into a little half & half and stirred that in to the soup. I think next time I will make extra potatoes and puree some of them into the broth to thicken it even more.

Deep Fried Jalapeno Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
These were awesome!! Hubby was eating them faster than I could make them. Word to the weak - they are spicy! We served with salsa con queso dip. I used the leftover batter & fried up some green beans & broccoli. Delicious!! Because we cooked them after the jalapenos, the oil picked up a spicy flavor that carried over to the other veggies. Not sure why other reviewers were saying this was too runny of a batter, I thought it was perfect as is.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
We loved this recipe, great for a cold winter evening. I am always looking for new slow cooker recipes to help with my time crunch after work. After reading previous reviews, I made the following adjustments & it came out great. No butter, used chicken stock instead of water & only 1 can of biscuits (pillsbury grands, reduced fat). I also put the chicken breasts in whole. I cooked for 10 hours on low & in the last hour shredded the chicken and added the biscuits. Delicious!

Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This was delicious. We used it as a topping for Chicken Flautas (also from this website). I modified the pepper ratios to suit our spicier taste. I used about 3 cups of jalapenos and 1 each of red & green bell peppers. Even after this modification, it was still sweet, I think I could have upped the jalapenos even further. I used 4 tbs pectin, and that was a very thick jelly. I think next time I will reduce to 3 tbs. I also used the inversion method to set.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was a lifesaver! I was in the middle of making tacos for dinner & had all the fixins except for taco seasoning. I grabbed the computer & whipped up this recipe. Fortunately I had all the ingredients on hand. I added the entire mix to about 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef with 2/3 cup of water. Delicious! No more packet mixes for me.

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Made a few modifications for our preferences. To cook the chicken, we made a dry rub of salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne & chili powder. Sauteed it & shredded. Used homemade salsa instead of jarred picante. We also added 3 diced fresh jalapenos to the mix. We used shredded taco blend cheese & put in only about 6 ounces total to the mix & used about 2 more ounces on top of the wrapped flautas. We tried rolling as directed, but found it difficult. So we switched to stuffing & rolling the shells before we fried them. That seemed to work much better. We had a few different choices for topings: sour cream, guacamole & our favorite was hot pepper jelly (also from this website). Overall, it's a great starter recipe, great to build on & make your own.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Delicious! Followed directions exactly, except that I used reduced fat cream cheese and I added some fresh mushrooms in at the same time that I added the cream cheese & soup. Served over egg noodles. The whole family loved it & it was easy to make.

So yummy! This was my first experience with chicken cordon bleu, and I will definitely put this on my repeat list. I served it with some fresh asparagus, topped with some of the extra sauce. Delicious!
