Kerry's Asiago Cheese Hamburger

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
This is a big messy yummy burger. After reading reviews I adjusted the amounts of some of the seasonings and it worked great: I used 1 lb ground beef for 3 burgers, and used 1 tsp Worcestershire, 3 TBL Frank's buffalo wing sauce, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp seasoned salt, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Since I had reduced the liquid in the burger, I did not refrigerate them and it worked great and still had lots of flavor. I brushed on the barbecue sauce while grilling and added no other barbecue sauce or ketchup. I served on onion rolls with lettuce, tomato, onions and asiago cheese. I left off the bacon and didn't miss it. I really enjoyed this burger. I will make again.

Glazed Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
This grilled pork chop received mixed reviews in our house with one person rating it a 2, one a 3, and I rated it a 4. So I took the average of 3. Next time I think I will marinate it first because that would help it give more flavor and make it more tender. The sauce is like a slightly spicy thousand island dressing I liked but others didn't. We generally like spicy and thought this could have used more flavor. I will probably try it again, marinating it next time and maybe tweaking the sauce.

Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
YUM! So delicious and easy. My husband declared it was one of the best open faced sandwiches he has had. I did not have tomato juice so I used salsa instead. This is a definite keeper. Thanks for a great recipe.

Traditional Mexican Guacamole

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
YUM! I love fresh guacamole and this recipe is right on. I didn't change a thing. I used two roma tomatoes to get roughly 1 cup chopped tomatoes and about 1/4 of a sweet vidalia onion to get 1/4 cup chopped onion. I used one chopped, seeded jalapeño which gave it a mild spiciness in my opinion. Next time I might add one more jalapeño as I like a medium spice level. Thanks Kaersten for a great recipe.

Kristen's Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
Loved this! How can it not be good with all these great ingredients. I even used reduced fat sour cream, light ranch dressing (instead ranch mix), center cut bacon and 2% reduced fat cheese and it was still awesome. Thanks KristenB for a great recipe.

Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Yum! We really enjoyed these and they were so easy. Like other reviewers I added taco seasoning to the chicken before cooking. I used the Taco Seasoning I recipe from this site. I used sliced Jalapeños instead of green chills since that is what I had on hand. We will be making these again.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
How can you not love this super easy, super tasty recipe. I used the Taco Seasoning I recipe from this site instead of packaged taco seasoning and left out the salt and I left out the cilantro because I used this chicken in the Pico De Gallo Chicken Quesadilla recipe which already has cilantro in the Pico De Gallo. It was excellent. I used about half the chicken but kept the seasonings the same. I will definitely be making this again.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
I love the combination of spicy chicken, gooey cheese, and the flavorful kick of the pico de gallo. I wanted the chicken to have more flavor so I made these using leftover shredded chicken from the Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe from this site. It added even more flavor and made this recipe so easy to put together. I will be making this recipe again and again.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Yum!! We loved this. I scaled it down to 6 servings instead of 12 and used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and reduced fat refrigerated crescent rolls because that is what I had on hand and it was still delicious. Next time I have to bring a dessert to a party or pot luck I will bring this. It is a keeper.

Grilled Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce Over Linguine

This was delicious. It was quick and easy and tasted great. I took a shortcut and used the Al Fresco Precooked Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and sautéed in a skillet and it was delicious.

Grilled Mediterranean Greek Pizza with Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
I enjoyed this pizza. It was very easy. I used a package of Al Fresco pre-cooked Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and it was so easy and delicious. I used a package of shredded cheddar and mozzarella since that is what I had on hand. I will make this again.

Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
This was an extremely easy and flavorful dish. I used the Al Fresco cooked Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage in this recipe and it had a great flavor. I used canned tomatoes and chilies instead of fresh tomatoes since I had that on hand. It was a very quick easy and flavorful dish. Next time I will probably add a little italian seasoning as I like bold flavors and spices.

Penne Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
This is a good and easy pasta salad that would be great for a pot luck. I used light mayonnaise instead of Miracle Whip as that is what I had on hand. I used red, yellow, and orange bell peppers as I already had them on hand and they add some additional color. The only thing was that the raw red onion was pretty strong. While it added great color, next time I might use red bell peppers and add green onions instead of red, but that is just my preference. Overall, a very good recipe. Thanks for sharing.

South Texas Carne Guisada

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Yum! This is Tex Mex at its best! If you like fajitas you will LOVE this dish. The flavors are great. I did take the recommended short cut and used canned diced tomatoes and green chilies. It still tasted awesome. Also, I used red, orange, and yellow bell peppers just to make it more colorful. I served it with sour cream, cheese, and pico de gallo. The spices are just right. This will be my go to recipe from now on.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This was very good. I marinated it overnight and followed the recipe with the exception of the soy sauce since I was out. I tried hoisin sauce since I had that on hand and it turned out great. I will try this again with the soy sauce.

Bada Bing Bada Banged Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
My husband and I really liked these for a change of pace. I followed the recipe with the exception of drizzling the olive oil, herb, cheese mixture over the potatoes instead of coating the potatoes in the mixture. I will make these again.

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
We thought these little chocolately crunchy treats were really good and couldn't be easier to make. After reading the reviews before making the recipe I was concerned about the texture. Therefore, I made half a batch and used all natural peanut butter and semi sweet chocolate chips. My family and I thought they were very good, crunchy and chocolatey. We may be more used to eating lower fat, higher fiber foods than some people as I have gradually been trying to add more of these types of foods into our diet. I recommend giving these a try as a crunchy chocolately peanut butter treat.

Thai Style Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
This was very good with a few slight modifications to ingredient amounts. I was looking for a recipe to use what I had on hand and this recipe fit the bill for most of the ingredients. First, as I didn't have dried red chili peppers, I used about 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper. As I like a medium spice level I could have used more crushed red pepper. I also used ground ginger instead of fresh since I didn't have any fresh. Lastly I tripled the amounts of the soy sauce, lemon juice, and white wine and probably should have increased it more. I served it with diced red, yellow, and green bell peppers and whole wheat shell pasta. Next time I want to try it with the dried red chili peppers and the fresh ginger as I think that would make it better. However, 1/2 tsp grated FRESH ginger is a very small amount. Next time I would probably triple that amount as well and quadruple the amounts of the soy sauce, lemon juice, and white wine.
