Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
I use this recipe for everything - beef burgers, bison burgers, turkey burgers - and they always come out juicy and flavorful. I follow this recipe exactly and it's great. Love it!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This pizza crust was awesome and so easy to make. I made home-made pizzas last night for a couple friends (my first time making pizza) and everyone raved about the crust. It was 100% better than any store-bought pizza dough. I will definitely be using this recipe again.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
These burritos came out just okay for me. I'm not sure if there was something I did wrong, though I followed the recipe exactly. There wasn't a ton of flavor in this dish...I found it to be rather bland, and VERY heavy on just black bean flavor. In the future, I might try a couple of different spices and add a few ingredients...I'd maybe add cumin, coriander and some lime, and add sour cream, lettuce and tomato to the actual burrito. Not sure I'll be making this dish again, though. I'll probably try another burrito recipe.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I made this cheesecake as a dessert side for a fondue dinner party, and it was a big hit. It was my very first cheesecake, so I was extremely nervous about my abilities to properly make one, but everyone raved about it and ate their full slices (even after completely gorging ourselves on meat fondue.) I did wind up with one small crack, though that was no fault of the recipe, but a fault of my own. Since I was completely new to making cheesecake, I didn't let the cream cheese soften enough, and therefore had to overbeat the batter in order to get rid of the lumps. I'd therefore advise any one making this recipe to spend the time to allow the cream cheese to reach room temperature. Even despite my overbeating, however, I still only had one tiny crack, which was a better result than I expected. I added a small basin of water in a pyrex dish underneath the cheesecake to also help eliminate cracking. In the future, I'd maybe eliminate the four from the recipe, in order to make the cheesecake a bit creamier. Oh, FYI, my boyfriend made a wonderful strawberry topping by mixing strawberries with 1/3 cup sugar in a saucepan and whisking it. Perfect!

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I just finished eating this dish about ten minutes ago and it was FANTASTIC. To be honest, I was skeptical about the recipe, but it was flavorful and filling. I have tried 3 alfredo recipes from allrecipes.com in the last few weeks (in an attempt to find the perfect alfredo), and this was by far my favorite so far. I used whole wheat pasta instead of regular pasta, and this recipe was still delicious. I DID season the chicken slightly with garlic and italian seasoning while cooking it, which was my only change. Fantastic. Good job, Campbell's. :-)

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
I made this dish for last night's dinner, and it turned out really well. The tacos were full of flavor, and were a nice change from traditional beef tacos. I did add cumin and coriander as additional spices, in order to give the recipe a more traditional Mexican taste, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I also used a full lime rather than a half, which made the chicken a BIT too lime-y for me, though my boyfriend seemed to like the amount of lime flavor in the chicken. Either way, I would definitely make this again.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
This recipe was my first attempt at cooking any sort of Mexican food, as well as my first experience working with cumin and coriander spices. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The dish was absolutely delicious -- both my boyfriend and I loved it. There was so much flavor in this casserole, and we both went back for seconds. It was also an extremely easy recipe, especially for a beginner cook like me, so I would recommend it to anyone who is just starting out or wants to try their hand at Mexican cooking. I didn't change anything about the recipe, and wouldn't. Fantastic!

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
I'm a budding cook, and of all the recipes I have made so far, this was my boyfriend's favorite. It had an incredible amount of flavor, and, as mentioned by other reviewers, made enough food for several people. I did make a few tiny changes...I doubled the amount of garlic used (I love garlic) and sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil rather than butter. I also saved some of the feta cheese to sprinkle on top of the dish after it was completed. All in all, this made for a delicious meal. I definitely will be making it again in the future.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
I cooked this meal for last night's dinner, following the recipe exactly (except for the fact that I made 3 chicken breasts instead of 6) and it came out FANTASTIC. Simmering made the chicken juicy and delicious, and the sauce was incredible. I'd recommend making a side dish that can also utilize this fantastic sauce, such as rice or potatoes. My only recommended change would be to fold the cheese within the ham (as suggested by other posters) in order to prevent the cheese from melting out. Loved this dish.

Bruschetta III

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I made this bruschetta for a Super Bowl party and was pleasantly surprised by how many compliments I got on the flavor. The only thing I'd change would be to toast the bread in the oven a bit before adding the cheese and tomato...my bread was still a bit soft after the 7-10 minute cooking time. I also used a very thin French baguette, so one slice of Roma tomato over the cheese and spices worked perfectly. Also, my friend suggested including a side plate of vinegar for dipping, and I think I'll try that in the future.
