Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I'd never had Chicken A La King before, but my husband kept asking for it, so I used this recipe. I have to say this was absolutely DELICIOUS! It is creamy, chickeny goodness with a delicate flavor. I read the past reviews and added 1 T of dry sherry (because a previous reviewer recommended it). I had to omit the mushrooms because I didn't have any in the house, but did add 1 cup of peas because my son loves them. I really appreciate the fact that there are only natural ingredients in the recipe. I'd definitely make it again.

Daddy's Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
I've made this recipe several times and my family loves it. I use canola oil for the vegetable oil and SmartBalance whipped spread in place of margarine. I also add 1/2 tablespoon of salt on top of the kernels in the bubbling oil. It comes out perfectly without burning everytime. 5 stars!

Easy Brazilian Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Who knew a few ingredients could make something so spectacular? This drink is sweet, tart, creamy and refreshing! My daughter made this for an international foods day at her school and the pitcher came back empty. FYI- we didn't have fresh limes so we substituted 2 tablespoons of bottled lime juice (per lime) and mixed everything up in a pitcher.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
I just made this today for the family and my 8-year-old-vegetarian-child had 4 servings!! Yes, she decided to be a vegetarian 2 weeks ago, but I think this dish broke her streak! I wanted a one dish meal so I added 8 oz of boiled rotini noodles to the bottom of a 13 x 9 lasagna pan. I doubled the sauce ingredients and added 3/4 c of Chardonnay instead of the lemon juice. I didn't have any bacon bits or mushrooms to add. I layered the ingredients as directed except I used raw cubed chicken breast. I cooked the whole thing at 350 for 1 1/2 hours (I fell asleep). The casserole was covered with foil for the first 45 mins. The whole dish came out bubbly and golden brown! I'll make this again and will probably add some chopped red onion.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
Pleasantly sweet and not too spicy, this bread is perfect. I say "is" because I'm eating it right now! The top is slighty crispy (maybe from the oil?) and the inside is tender, very moist and flecked with spices. I wanted to follow the recipe exactly so I picked up everything at Walm*rt, but since they were out of loaf pans, I used 3 8x8 cake pans and baked them for 1 hour.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
Ok, I've had a bottle of balsamic vinegar sitting on my shelf for a year. Didn't know what to do with it, then I found this recipe. This is absolutely delicious! It's tangy, garlicky and rich. It reminds me a lot of the Philipino dish Adobo, but this is a lot quicker. My whole family loved this, including our kids. Just beware- the vinegar will perfume your house while it's simmering.

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
I lost my own recipe when we moved and needed to make a peach cobbler for a get-together. I decided to try this one because it sounded closest to my own. While baking, this cobbler filled the house with an irresistable aroma. The crust is flaky and slightly sweet while the filling is sweet, a little tart and buttery at the same time. Definitely try this. I used frozen peaches from Albertson's, and used 1.5 times flour as a thickener instead of cornstarch. I also doubled the crust recipe and didn't even attempt to do a lattice :) This recipe filled a 13X9X2 lasagna pan perfectly!

Curried Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2002
Since I'd never had lentils before I had to think about this recipe for a while before I tried it. Am I glad I did! It's exotic, yet not too spicy for my 2 and 4 year olds. I didn't want a thin soup, because I wanted to serve this over rice so I reduced the liquid to about 4 1/2 cups. When it was finished, I took a tip from the lentil package and added about 1/4 evaporated milk to the pot(instead of sour cream) and it was excellent Another tip: I've made this twice and think it's just a little better(if that's possible) with a yellow onion cooked in, instead of the green. The green onion looked great as a garnish, though! :~)
