Chipotle Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2002
Wow, what a great recipe! I used the full amount of peppers (including seeds), and it was about as hot as we can comfortably eat, will use slightly less next time. Best advice in other reviews was to use corn instead of spinach -- the corn and sour cream sauce really makes this whole dish come alive, and I normally won't even touch sour cream. We served this with refried beans & shredded cheese, which were perfect to cool down your mouth between bites! Definitely try this recipe; even if you want to cut way down on the peppers, the flavor will be great.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2002
This has a really neat flavor, the taco seasoning makes all the difference (I love spicy food, and used McCormick hot seasoning -- worked great). Per other reviews, I used 1 cup of water instead of 2, and got a perfect consistency. I also don't like chunks of tomatoes & peppers, so I pureed the tomatoes, peppers and onions before cooking, which worked out fantastic. Will definitely have this again.

Adobo Sirloin

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
It's true - the marinade smells pretty rank, but the end result is amazing! I halved the recipe, and used two large peppers and 2 tbsp of adobo sauce for our 1 lb of meat, and marinated about 2 hours. Now, I like my food spicy enough to make me cry (or at least sweat a little). But this was a little too hot for even me! So if you're not into food that makes your mouth numb, cut down on the sauce and peppers! BTW, my husband says that this steak, along with Carnation Mashed Potatoes from this site, are his new all-time favorite meal. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

Carnation® Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
Wow, these taste even better than I expected! We had them with Adobo Sirloin from this site and plain green beans, and my husband says he wants this meal as often as I'll make it! I cut up the potatoes before boiling, and they were soft enough to mash easily with a hand masher after 15 minutes -- just enough time to make the rest of the meal. Thanks for a great recipe!

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2002
This is a very easy way to make a tasty side dish! Per other reviews, I reduced the oil to 1 tbsp. I used 1 tbsp of pre-minced garlic, but I think slicing fresh garlic would have been more flavorful and attractive, plus I should have used a little more. Be sure to add the cheese RIGHT before serving, otherwise the oil soaks into it and it doesn't look very appealing!

Taco Cornbread Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2002
Very simple to make, tasty, and healthy if you use low-fat or fat-free ingredients. Be sure to spread the cornbread batter thin unless you really, really like cornbread, otherwise, it's overpowering. A large cookie sheet covered in foil worked really well.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2002
My husband gives this 5 stars, I give it 3. It is a little dry, though I think omitting the cornmeal might help (you only need about half that amount, anyway). I didn't care for the combination of flavors, but it was worth trying if you're a tuna fan. Mainly tasted just like a normal tuna patty to me. A previous reviewer suggested serving it with macaroni & cheese, which might have been a good idea.

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2002
We disagree with most other reviewers -- we didn't like this at all. We did omit the bacon, but I don't think it would've helped much to keep it. The soy sauce flavor was too strong, and there was no other flavor coming through. We added mushrooms and shredded carrots, which helped a little, but all in all the texture and flavor were just "blah" for us.

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2002
My mom has been making these exact cookies (but without the baking soda or salt) since I was little, and everybody loves them! Can't say enough good about them, you just have to try them!

Marble Bark

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2002
This is fantastic. For peanut butter bark, omit the nuts, but stir 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter into the white chocolate. Yum!! Looks great with holiday candies, too.

Creamy Mushroom Peas

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2002
This tasted great, and looked much more complicated than it is! I made some substitutions for convenience, but the taste was still fantastic: canned peas and mushrooms instead of frozen or fresh, half & half instead of cream, and 1 tsp onion powder instead of onions (we don't like onions). This has such a mild flavor, it went very well with a spicy main dish.

Lemon-Orange Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
I used 2 tbsp orange juice and 1 tbsp lemon juice (not fresh squeezed), and the flavor was still fantastic. Very light and delicious! We enjoy having this with French Green Beans from this site.

Baked Oatmeal I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2002
Great suggestion to substitute applesauce for the oil! I used a lasagna pan instead of pie plate, baked 30 minutes at 350, and ended up with 9 huge delicious squares of "oatmeal cake". I didn't find it dry at all - somewhere between bread pudding and a very moist muffin. Very filling, and an easy way to get a healthy breakfast.

White Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2002
This is one of our all-time allrecipes favorites! We use a shredded pepper-jack cheese blend, and sometimes add a little shredded cheddar on top of each bowl. Highly recommended if you love spicy food and don't mind the cleanup!

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2002
I used Betty Crocker reduced fat brownie mix and fat-free cream cheese, which made these treats extremely low-fat. I lined the baking dish with foil so they could be lifted out when done baking, which helped a lot (be sure to use lots of cooking spray). But I had to bake them for 50 minutes, and they were still completely impossible to slice. Next time I'll try cupcake-style to avoid both problems! Also, make sure the cream cheese mixture is completely smooth before adding to pan.

Asian-Style Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2002
This is fantastic! We used what we had on hand, which was boneless pork ribs, garlic flavored teriyaki sauce (omitted the garlic), and 1 tsp ground ginger instead of fresh. Based on other reviews, we broiled them, then thickened the sauce into a gravy with a cornstarch/water mixture, then served it all over egg noodles. Very garlicy and spicy, just the way we like it! We'll be having this over and over.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2002
This is fantastic, and it doesn't get any easier or faster! I cut the recipe in half, and the amount of garlic powder seemed like an awful lot (1 tsp), so I only used about 1/2 tsp, which worked out fine. I used the recommended amount of margarine, but cooking spray (or less margarine) would have been OK too.

French Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2002
We served this with "A Good Easy Garlic Chicken" and mashed potatoes & gravy. It made a hearty, complete meal in less than a half hour! The rosemary was a little overpowering in the green beans though; it would be fun to start with the beans, mushrooms and almonds, then experiment with your own favorite herbs.

Super Easy Chicken Manicotti

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2002
This is very easy to make and tastes fantastic, but you definitely need more sauce, about 36 to 40 oz. Also, my cheese was browned after only 45 minutes, while the pasta wasn't quite done enough, so be sure to bake it on a low oven shelf, or add the cheese during the last 30-45 minutes of cooking. Definitely worth trying!

Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2002
My husband loves Thai food and he loves this recipe; I like other Asian food, but I didn't care for this at all. It has a good heat, but I didn't like the strong coconut flavor. I think using chicken broth instead of water might have helped, as would noodles, for someone who's not a huge Thai food fan. If you like Thai, though, this is worth a try!
