Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2014
Absolutely perfect as written. We didn't change a thing. There was no need.

The Ultimate Burger Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
This was okay. I think that next time I will try adding a little diced sun-dried tomatoes though. Also, if you have left-overs make sure that you take it out of the fridge well in advance of serving... I didn't do this and figured that I'd microwave it for 20 seconds in order to "soften it up" enough to spread. Essentially, that ruined it. If I do this again, I'll make sure that I don't have left-overs. :)

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
Surprisingly good! I was somewhat skeptical of putting baking soda in ice tea but figured that I'd give it a try. I'm very pleased that I did! I followed the recipe exactly but for a couple of procedural steps. I changed the steps a bit because I didn't have a glass pitcher and didn't feel comfortable pouring boiling water into my cheap plastic pitcher. This way made it possible to have the same great results without my worrying over whether or not my pitcher would hold up to the boiling water. Here's what I did: First, I started with a 4 cup glass measuring cup and heated the 2 cups of water to boiling in the microwave. While that was going on, I filled a plastic pitcher with 6 cups of cool water and got the 6 tea bags ready along with the baking soda. By this time the water in the microwave was boiling and I took it out and added the pinch of baking soda directly to the measuring cup of boiling water. I then placed the 6 tea bags into the measuring cup and placed a small plate over the top of the measuring cup. I waited the 15 minutes, took out the 6 tea bags and added the 3/4 cup of sugar and stirred it inside the measuring cup for about 2 minutes to ensure that all the sugar had dissolved. I then poured the tea/sugar mixture into the plastic pitcher containing the 6 cups of cool water and stirred again for a minute or two. Then into the fridge it went until the next day. It was excellent! and had absolutely no acidity or bitterness whatsoever!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
This would have been 5 stars (and I'm sure it deserves it) but I took the advice of many of the previous reviewers when it came to cooking times and pre-baking the chicken at 350° (step #1) vs skipping step #1 and simply baking it raw as part of the final dish. Everything else I followed exactly as spelled out in the original recipe (Oops... I also used real crumbled bacon as opposed to bacon bits). I will make this again because even though the chicken wasn't cooked completely, I was able to nuke it long enough to finish the job and the taste was great!

Key Lime Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
Made this earlier today. LOVED IT! The only changes I made was that I used 28oz (2 whole cans) of the condensed milk and I baked it for 10 mins rather than 5-8. It came out perfectly. I didn't have any Florida Key Limes, so I used Nellie & Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice. This has been added to my recipe box and will be made many more times in the future.

Cherry Crumble

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
Made this tonight for my family and we all agree that this is a keeper. I made it exactly as written but for one small addition... I added a Tbsp of lime juice to the cherry pie filling and mixed it together before pouring it onto the oats mixture. I like "sweet" but I also like a touch of "tart" in my crisps.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
Made this almost exactly as written. The only change I made was with the cooking times and the cheese. I placed it in the oven for 25 minutes, took it out, added the cheese, and placed it back in the oven for another 5 minutes. Came out perfect!

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
Very good as written. I tried the homemade dressing but must say that in the future I'll just use Vinaigrette Raspberry Lite dressing. I'm trying to watch the calories and besides that it makes this recipe even easier to put together. I did add a couple of things for even more flavor. First, I had to add mandarin orange slices. The second addition was slivers of almonds. All went very well together and I'll be making this several time throughout the summer months.

Toasted Cuban Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Not a traditional Cubano but a good sandwich none-the-less. Only changes were that I used Cuban bread rather than ciabatta rolls and I pressed sandwiches rather than baking them.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Followed the recipe accept that I set the crockpot to Low for 10 hours and I used a less expensive cut of meat. Finally, used a disposable aluminum tray (uncovered) instead of a dutch oven when following the last step as I wanted something to easily store any leftovers in. This recipe was a hit with myself and the two guests that I had over for dinner last night. I'll certainly be making this again!
