Black Bean and Chickpea Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
This was plain at best...simply a spin off of refried beans in my opinion. Who ever said this was "the best hummus they have ever had" has obviously never had hummus- I laughed when I read that their "Indian friend" raved over this. The only thing I could do to get this eaten was smear it on whole wheat tortillas, add cheese and sour cream- and tell my family it was bean burritos. very disappointing recipe.

Chicken Diane Style

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
This was very good, and very easy to make. My family gobbles it up- and these are picky people who claim to not like onions or mushrooms! I only did one thing differently, and that was substitute Balsamic vinegar for the Brandy; the flavor was still great.

Cuban Black Beans I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Thia was pretty good, and very easy. I made mine in the crockpot, and let simmer most of the day. I followed the advice of others and sauteed the veggies first in a little olive oil. My family is wimpy when it comes to "heat" so I reduced the peppers to just one , for their sake lol- and I honestly could have used both and it would have added much better flavor and not a lot of heat. This had amazing flavor and I did use the balsamic vinegar, I agree, it adds great flavor. The only thing I would do different, would be to wait to add my veggies until the last hour, given I chose the crock pot, and they lost all of their vibrant colors through all day cooking. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Sour Cream Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I followed the recipe pretty much as directed, but from reading other reviews, did add extra paprika. All in all, it was just an okay recipe. I had a Chicken Paprika recipe years ago, that would nearly set your mouth on fire...it was amazing. Sadly this did not come close to what I was looking for, but it is good for those with a mild taste preference.

This was so delicious and so easy to make; an absolute HIT with my picky teenagers! I followed the recipe exactly, did not change a thing and will definitely be making this again.
