Shredded Potato Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
I thought this was missing something - a lot of flavor. I switched out the ham for bacon based on what I had, but followed the rest of the recipe to the T (with the exception of shredding my own potatoes). I did have the problem of the sogginess because I didn't pat dry the potatoes, but we weren't going to eat it the day of anyways - I was making it for breakfasts to take to work. I do think my bacon was bland and that didn't help, but I think seasonings are needed here. I wish I could have loved this more - it was easy tho a little time consuming as compared to other breakfast casseroles and I don't know that I will take the time to play with seasonings to get this right.

Savory Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2015
I can't believe how gaga my husband went over this meal. It was good for sure, but he said it rivaled his absolute favorite meals. Served it with a quinoa/orzo side mix, and a broccoli slaw with an Asian dressing. This meal came together so fast, it's a kick recipe for a weekday night for a family. Used low sodium Adobo and it was still great. I need to print this out before I lose it - I hesitate to think how upset my hubby will be if I do! :)

Lawn Mower Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2015
Very good but very sweet and had already cut down. Only used half the seasoning packet but might add more next time. Good stuff, perfect side and alternative to salad!

Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2015
LOVED this! The husband groaned through his first 5 slurps of this. For 20 minutes, this is awesome. To cook the chicken, I used the Barefoot Contessa method of roasting chicken breasts - slather bone in breasts with skin on in olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast at 350 for 40 minutes. Let cool then de skin/bone and chop. Super moist! Did all that the night before, along with chopping the onion and garlic, so all that was left the day of was to pop a couple of cans and cook - so quick! The hubby didn't love the black olives (he loves them normally) and I was ambivalent to it - not sure it added that much here.

Wake-Up Casserole - Canadian Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
The hubby declared this a home run. I liked it though was surprised the southwestern egg beaters didn't impart more flavor. Also thought it was really greasy, which is a shame given how healthy the rest of it is. I will try regular shredded potatoes next time instead of the frozen patties. Left out the salt and didn't miss it - the canadian bacon, egg beaters and patties had plenty of sodium already! Used only 1 bag of shredded cheese (2 cups) - thought it was plenty. This could use a little bit of spice, might try pepperjack next time or a few shakes of crushed red pepper, and LOVE the idea of scallions on top! Definitely hearty though!

Microwave Baked Potato

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2015
My husband has always done this since I've known him. His trick for steaming it is to wrap potatoes (a few together if they are small) in a paper towel and then run the package under running water (passes through it quickly a couple of times to get a damp paper towel) then puts it in the microwave.

Absolute Best Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
Absolutely fabulous as the name and everyone else says. I wasn't sure what to expect - it's thinner than regular syrup. It bubbled up after the baking soda, but the bubbles will subside in a bit. If you let it sit, it separates, but will swish back together easily.

Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
Absolutely delicious and doesn't even need syrup, which I was shocked about. Used 3 tablespoons total of sugar (1 to go with the apple if it's in season, 1 in the batter) and 1 less egg based on other reviews and that was perfect. This is a perfect quick easy breakfast/brunch to serve for overnight guests! I made it in a cast iron skillet then traveled with it which was dumb - it kept cooking until the pan cooled so it was quite dense by the time I got there. I should have warmed the plate and then driven it on there. UPDATE: Made this with the # of eggs called for and can confirm it's definitely too much - it came out like a fritatta. Will use 3 from now on.

Cheesy Ham & Grits Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
Loved it. Used 1% milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and reduced fat sharp cheddar. Next time will go for 1 less egg and take out half the egg yolks, and 1-2 tbsp less butter.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
Scaled this down to 2 and tossed it with some fried wings from the wing bar at Wegmans (local grocery store). We've been looking to find the best wings around our new home and had yet to find a good one that wasn't insanely expensive - the hubby declared this 'his new wing'! The sauce took about 3 minutes to put together and boil while I crisped up the wings in a hot toaster oven for a few minutes. Toss and consume, it's as easy as that.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
It REALLY doesn't get much easier than this, folks! I have a hard time cooking rice and it came out just fine. I'd love to try this with brown rice to see if it comes out just as good. It came out slightly under done (crispy) so I will turn it down a little next time. Perfect side to enchiladas!

Creamy Pesto Chicken and Bow Ties

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2014
This was definitely ridiculously easy and the hubby loved it (needed a quick lunch to take to work the next day and had 2 thawed chicken breasts), so this is an awesome cabinet meal. I can see how tomatoes would be a nice addition (fresh or canned). Seasoned the chicken breast with Cavender's Greek seasoning (will use a bit more next time) with olive oil instead of butter and 8 oz crimini mushrooms. Froze half the sauce for later and will update on how it works out after we defrost and use it!

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2014
DELICIOUS. Used about half the cream cheese and spread it on each slice as other did. Used sunmaid raisin bread and two less eggs and fat free half and half which as someone else said went undetected.I think this could easily use half the amount of butter. Might also try this without cream cheese someday... Not sure it adds anything. Two Honeycrisp apples worked great!

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2014
This is good. A great little busy night casserole. Used brown rice and one pound of sausage. Tastes like a stuffed pepper and it's filling, deconstructed.

Crispy Edamame

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
As written, this recipe is missing something. I will take other's suggestions of the parchment paper, garlic powder, and putting the mixings in the bowl before putting in the edamame. Also love the taco seasoning idea. Otherwise, this came out nice. Might keep it in there a few more minutes to get them crispier.

Grilled Salmon, Snap Peas and Spring Mix Salad with Chow Mein Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
Already had a salmon marinating and was only able to try the salad dressing - this one's delicious! Followed the recipe to a T. Served it with spinach, salmon, onions, edamame and chow mein noodles.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2014
2900+ reviews don't lie....this dip is delicious. I could eat it with a spoon....also good with Tostitos scoops. I'll follow Scott99's recommendation for the layering next time - the color is definitely unappetizing. I just boiled 2 chicken breasts in plain water for 20 minutes then shredded them.
