Chicken Breasts with Chipotle Green Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
I was looking for something different to do with my chicken breasts and this recipe was on the front page including a video on how to prepare. So easy and tasty and a big hit with the family! Didn't have to run to the grocery store because I had everything on hand. *I lied - except for the chipotle seasoning! I did a web search and found I could use a paprika, red pepper with a dash of chili powder as a substitute. About 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/8 red pepper and a dash of chili powder. Will look for chipotle seasoning for the next time I make this!

Hiyashi Chuka Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
Loved it! I used thinly sliced pork and cut up some cooked shrimp. There can be so many variations to personalize to your tastes. I put toppings in separate ramikins so everyone could choose what they wished. I also used green onions, sesame seeds and a touch of fresh ginger. Delicious, a keeper!

Salt and Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
This recipe was soooo yummy! My husband and three kids all thought so too. They have already asked me to make this a regular. I marinated it for an hour but, I think I might try it a little longer next time, because we loved the flavor so much. I did turn on the broiler at the end to really crisp the skin. It was delicious.

Honey-Lime Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2005
I made these yummy chops last night and everyone loved them! My 3 kids ate a whole pork chop each. (This never happens) After reading the previous reviews, I made the sauce as instructed. I tasted a bit, and decided to double the honey, lime juice, and browning sauce. I just let the sauce slowly simmer for about 20 minutes while I prepared the rest of dinner. I also quickly browned the chops and turned the heat to low and covered with a lid. It was ready in about 5 to 10 minutes. This avoided the burning from the honey in the marinade, and released some juice that I added to the sauce. It was fabulous and we will definetely be making this again!

Baked Pineapple Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
Made this on Christmas with ham and it was wonderful! Everyone commented on how good it was and wanted the recipe. The only change I made to the recipe was to halve the sugar. It was plenty. In fact, when I told people that it was supposed to have more sugar, they all said NOOO!!! That is why I must give it four stars. If the recipe only asked for 1/2 cup sugar, it would get FIVE stars for sure!! Thanks for a keeper.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
AWESOME! This is a keeper. I also used half and half to reduce the fat content. I grated fresh parmesan as well. It makes a big difference. One thing I will point out is to be careful when adding the parmesan. On my first try, my cream was too hot and it curdled. The second try, I took it off the stove and added the cheese slowly - stirring constantly. I also sauteed some mushrooms in fresh garlic and added them to the sauce along with two scallions and a diced tomato. I used frozen cooked shrimp with tail off. I defrosted them in the microwave and added them to the sauce. Cooked until warm and served over fettucine. It was delicious. My neighbors were over and were VERY impressed. Easy and elegant. A new family favorite. Thank you.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
I guess I am one of the few that did not care for this recipe. My family also thought it was just okay. My 10 yr. old son said they were more like chocolate chip muffins. He said Tollhouse is better. They were very cakelike, dry, and had a flour aftertaste. After reading prior reviews, I halved the recipe and did a test batch. We added more butter to try to give it some moistness. It helped, but not worth the effort.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2002
Well, upon reading the prior reviews. I thought I would make some of my own adjustments and try this recipe. First I lightly browned the "whole" chicken in my electric fry pan since some reviewers said that the chicken never browned in the slow cooker. I used the foil balls and cooked on high for one hour. I then turned it down to low and checked it in 5 hours. The chicken was falling off of the bone and tasted dry, already. Also, it wasn't as brown as when I first put it in. I think there are better ways to make a chicken. I might try it again, with browning it til crisp and then drastically reducing the cooking time. If that doesn't work, forget it.

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
I had one of those frozen Beef and Broccoli bags for dinner, but thought it wouldn't be enough to feed a family of five so I thought I would make this fried rice and add to it. I did not have bacon so I just fried up 2 pieces of bologna and cut it up (it worked fine). I cooked the rice in chicken broth to give it flavor. I used three eggs as suggested and it turned out fine for me. I added a few drops of sesame oil, a 1/2 teaspoon of fish sauce, shredded carrots, about a cup of peas, 3 green onions, a little more soy sauce than stated and a little more salt and pepper. I also added white pepper as well. After frying everything until heated through, I gave it a taste and it was to die for. I ended up eating this fried rice instead of the bagged broccoli and beef! My husband and three kids thought it was way better. I won't buy those bags anymore. This was so easy and tasted much better! Many thanks.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
Delicious and sooo easy. Cut back the hot pepper sauce to 1/4 cup. Very tender, flavorful and not too spicy so the kids loved it. I kept nibbling out of the crockpot when I would check it. Thanks for a great recipe.

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out very doughy and wet. Even after baking it longer, it never dried up any. Don't know what happened...

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
I followed some of the other review tips and added two more teaspoons of salt and cut the pepper in half. I added 2 tsp. of paprika to the flour mixture as well. I also added a pinch of tarragon, thyme, rosemary, sage, two bay leaves and 1 cup of tomato sauce (my kids don't like tomatos and it makes a wonderful color). I threw the potatos, carrots and celery in at the beginning and simmered for two hours and it was VERY tender and delicious. I added another can of beef broth to cover the potatos. Maybe my potatos are bigger :)! Thanks for a wonderfully tasty and easy recipe.

Toffee Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2002
This was good, but it tasted more like a caramel sauce. The kids loved it!
