Salsafied Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I loved this recipe. I only gave it 4 stars because I did alter the recipe as others suggested. I cooked the cubed chicken in about 2 tbsp of butter (I prefer the flavor over oil - I know not good for you). Then I added a package of fajita seasoning to spice up the chicken in place of the salt and pepper. I only used about half the can of chicken broth and used a whole 16 oz. jar of Pace's chuncky salsa. While all of that was cooking I cooked two boil-in-bag's of rice in the microwave for about 7 minutes. When they were done I added almost all of both bags (maybe about 1 1/2) to the chicken mixture and topped with the cheese. I covered and let sit. This was delicious and easy. One of the first recipes I've found that both my boyfriend and I enjoyed!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
We usually use the premade sugar cookie dough (where you just add an egg and water) - and I never eat them because they are very bland. These cookies changed my opinion of home-made sugar cookies. I took some of the other reviewers advice and added about a 1/2 cup more sugar (could have probably done a whole cup) and doubled the vanilla. I let the dough chill for over 24 hours (we would have used the following day but something came up). It was a little hard but if you working in small sections and kneaded a little it was perfect. I halved the recipe since this was only for my boyfriend and I and we got about 2 dozen cookies out of it (thicker cookies). I will definitley be making these again - they reminded me of the sugar cookies you can get at the mall - not bad not bad!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
I thought overall this was great. I used half of all of the ingredients because it was just for me and my boyfriend, but kept the 7 oz. macaroni due to other comments. The taste was delicious - I was nervous about the cream cheese, but it was great. I put it in the oven for 10 minutes to melt the cheese I put on top (I don't care for a bread crumb topping). I probably should have only done 5 minutes, I believe the oven dries it out a bit too much.

Ham Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
I made a few changes to the original and it wasn't too bad. There was a flavor in there that both my boyfriend and I weren't too crazy about - but that could have been due to my alterations (using TS Onion Onion instead of an actual chopped onion because I didn't have one, and adding a tbsp of garlic powder, and used cheddar cheese instead of swiss because I dont' care for swiss). Next time I will try this with no garlic and probably leave out the onion as well and try using provolone cheese. Overall good recipe just need to tweak it to my taste!

Quick Skillet Chicken and Macaroni Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
Very easy! I used to make a "Beefaroni" dish like this but with ground beef, but baked it in the oven. This is similar but takes less time because it just heats up on the stove. I used only 2 cups chicken, but 2 1/2 cups noodles (maybe a little too much for my pan - but perfect for dinner and leftovers for lunch). I used 1 1/2 cans Hunts Garlic and Herb tomato sauce (gave it more flavor).

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
This was my first attempt at making cheesecake - and it turned out amazing!! I am so excited! I followed a few tips by other reviewers (placed a pan of water on the rack underneath the cheesecake as the water bath, used a graham/butter/sugar crust and hand mixed all ingredients after the cream cheese and sugar). This turned out great - no cracking. It got a little brown on top so next time I might cut the time down just a touch, but it didn't change the taste so it probably doesn't matter. Very easy recipe - I'm not a cook by all means so if I can make this then anyone can.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I've been wanting to make homemade mac n cheese for a while, and this recipe was pretty good. I substituted mozzarella for muenster because that's all I had. I doubled each of the cheeses except for the processed cheese. That was perfect. My only complaint would be with the processed cheese. The recipe didn't really say what to do with it and I just cut the 8 oz. into smaller cubes....when mixing together they didn't melt completely so some spots are cheesier than others. Next time I will either cut into smaller piece or maybe layer the noodle mixture and place slices of the "velveeta". Other than my few changes I will definitely make again.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
I gave this a four because my boyfriend (who loves everything) loved this recipe, but for me (being a picky eater) thought it was okay. The chicken was definitely really moist and overall had good flavor - perhaps I'm just not big on rosemary. I will definitely try this again though. I did make a few changes. Because there were only two of us I used two chicken breast halves (made about 6 kabobs-plenty). I used canola oil (all I had), about 3/4 cup of ranch, 2 tsp lemon juice, 2 tsp vinegar, 2 tsp garlic powder. The rest of the ingredients I kept the same as the original 6 serving recipe. I marinated the chicken for about 2 hours then alternated chicken pieces and pieces of green pepper on the skewers. Overall pretty good recipe and very easy (which is always good in my book).

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I used two whole frozen chicken breasts and half a bottle of Frank's Red Hot sauce mixed that with half a package of the dry Ranch and threw it in the crockpot. I put it on low for 8 hours (then it switches to keep warm). When I got home I pulled the chicken out and shredded (it was a little dry) so I added the rest of the Frank's and threw it back in the pot and kept on keep warm for about 2 hours. I absolutely loved it - just enough kick for me. However, my boyfriend said it was way to spicy for him, so maybe next time I'll stick with half a bottle and add extra on just my sandwich. Overall I really enjoyed it - and it was easy!
