Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Made his Baked Ziti recipe 2 days ago. My boyfriend immediately went back for seconds! This was so easy and very fast to make. Even rookies will be able to make this dish! I seasoned the ground beef with minced garlic, oregeno, a little of worchestire sauce, and added a pinch of red crushed pepper for a kick. Just like many of the other reviewers, I also layered my Ziti differently (pasta, sauce, provolone, sour cream, mozzarella). I spooned the sauce mixture over the noodles. I used 12 slices of the Provolone non-smoked flavor cheee, Prego sauce, and light sour cream. I used a foil pan since it was deeper than my other dishes. Don't forget to cover the Ziti in foil before baking. An apple walnut salad went well, as our appetizer before eating the Ziti.

Pecan Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
I was searching for a pecan or walnut rice recipe to pair with Salmon. I read some of the reviews and decided to make a few changes. I used chicken broth instead of water, fresh ginger (because it was cheaper), dried parsley, and more onion than what the recipe called for. I followed the rest of the recipe and it was yummy! I enjoyed every bite of this recipe! I'm usually a white rice eater, but I will definitely make this again. This is a great way to get your family to eat brown rice. Btw - I used Food Network's recipe for Salmon baked in foil and served it with the Pecan rice.

Honey-Pecan Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I made this last night. If you are looking for something that is EASY, then this is it! I melted a little butter, mixed the honey & pecans in a separate pan. I poured the honey-pecan mixture on top. I drizzled additional honey on top. I didn't want to use the same pan as the chicken because the garlic was a little crispy. This was sweet and savory! BTW- I served it with brown rice & asparagus. Thanks for the recipe! I will be making this again :)

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
WOW! If I could give this recipe even more stars, I would definitely do it! This was SO worth my time in baking this delicious cheesecake. My BF absoultely loved it! He wanted to share the 1st slice, but I knew that we needed our own plates. Here's what I did: I bought a springform pan from wal-mart cost was about $10, greased the entire pan with butter, used 14 oreo cookies with a few tablespoons of butter & baked it for about 7 min. I melted the caramel pieces with the evaporated milk in the mircrowave & did the same thing for the chocolate, (thanks to the other reviewers). I reserved some of the caramel sauce to decorate the cheesecake at the end. I also made chocolate sauce for the toppings by using 1/2 chocolate chips and a little bit of cream. I finished the cheesecake with more pecans. I'm craving this right now! Can't wait to get home from work so that I can have more. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

Shredded Beef Chimichangas

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I made this two weeks ago... Mmm Mmm delicious! I didn't have any chili powder, so I used a little bit of Cayenne pepper instead. It still came out great! I used a side of light sour cream and homemade salsa. They were flaky and crispy, just the way I like them.

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I made this version of "Chicken Alfredo" last night. I wouldn't really call this Alfredo sauce, but this was really good and easy to make. I wanted to make something quick when I got home from work, so here's what I did: - I sauteed 1/2 of a small yellow onion with 1 clove of garlic and S&P, then set this aside - I used chicken tenders because I didn't want to pound the chicken breasts to make them thin. Plus the tenders cook faster! - Seasoned chicken with garlic powder, basil, and a little of rotisserie seasoning. Cooked until done and then removed the chicken from the pan. Sliced chicken on cutting board - added a little more butter to the pan, soup, milk, cheese, black pepper, and mixed well. Added the saute onion & garlic mixture, linguine & broccoli, then chicken. Seasoned with a pinch of salt and more basil! After it was done cooking, I left the burner on low while the garlic bread was in the oven. Great with Texas Toast Garlic bread...yummy :) Oh one more thing, I sprinkled more cheese on top once I served it!

Chicken with Chipotle

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
I made this for dinner last night! My bf absolutely loved it! I seasoned the chicken legs and thighs with garlic powder, cumin, pepper, and a small pinch of red pepper. I roasted the chicken in the oven for about 40 minutes. I also used 3 chipotle peppers since my bf is Mexican and he loves spicy food. We had Mexican rice and even poured a little of the chipotlle sauce on top. I'm saving this recipe! Thanks for a great recipe!

Angel Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
I made this for the first time a few months ago! My bf loved it so I had to make it again last night. I used sharp cheddar cheese spread and added one jalapeno. I added 1 garlic clove, salt & pepper, basil, garlic powder, and a little bit of red crushed pepper. Served it with bow tie pasta! It came out really good!
