Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
I LOVED this! I did not use the basil because I did not think it would go well with my meal. But it was fantastic and FULL of flavor. I will make this again and again.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
This came out sooo soft and chewy! BEWARE: for those considering following the advice to add more salt like I did....it made my bread rise too high. It was touching the top of my bread maker and left a yucky doughy mess on the lid and window! Next time, I will stick with 2 tsp of salt. But this for sure will be my go-to bread recipe from now on!!

Easy Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
This is a favorite in our family. I make it as is. The meat is super tender and falls apart when forked. I serve with mashed potatoes. Yummy!

Potato Chip Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2013
This was fabulous! What a fantastic substitute for fried chicken! I was really surprised how crunchy of a coating the chips made. I also didn't think the marination made any sense (since the butter just hardens in the fridge). So I salt and peppered the chicken along with some garlic powder, then dipped the chicken in melted butter and immediately rolled it into the finely chopped chips and then baked. Note, if you pound out your chicken, like I do, 45 minutes is a bit too long for cooking. Next time I will probably check it at 38 or 40 minutes. Lastly, I only used a pound of chicken, but still found I needed closer to 4 cups of chips. But my (picky) hubby and I loved it at first bite!

Fantastic Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
OMG, I just made these and they came out awesome!! You MUST try them. When we fired up the grill, it started raining, so I just fried them in a pan with some oil. Also, I only made 4 burgers, not 8. If you made 8, they would be too small for sure. We served them on the torta rolls from Costco (toasted in a pan w/ butter). As some others did, I used the juice from the whole lime and a bit more of the seasoning mix (to be safe). I also used ground chicken thigh meat (rather than breast). I'm sure that, along with the extra lime juice, contributed to why they were so juicy. Next time I will top with guacamole or avocado slices. Oh, and hubby didn't like the idea of topping it w/ salsa so he used ketchup (yuck, I know) but said he would try BBQ sauce next time. Oh and he hates cilantro so I didn't tell him I used it and he never even noticed. Ssshhh. Thanks Tozenuf for this fantastic recipe. So juicy and yummy! Will make again and again!!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
Loved this recipe. I made this last night and my hubby asked me to make it again tonight! That NEVER happens. I also used the sriracha (rooster) sauce and it gave it the perfect amount of kick! Like others, mine did not thicken up at all. So next time I think I will do as other reviewers suggested and dredge the chicken in flour first. Also, like someone else said, it was a tad too soy saucey (salty). Next time I will reduce the soy sauce a bit. Oh and I loved the suggestion to add vegies! Looking forward to making this again!

Coconut Pumpkin Nut Bread

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
Fabulous flavor and so moist! I noticed some people felt the need to add more spice. Do so if you like spice, but I prefer the mild spice in this recipe. If you don't like coconut, don't be turned off by the coconut milk because it doesn't give it any coconut flavor - simply omit the coconut flakes. I wonder if some people used the coconut beverage and not the canned coconut milk (because it seems many wanted to substitute regular milk and I don't think it would have any where near the same effect). Mine came out kinda falling apart, so I must have done something wrong. So I still give it a 5 because I would definitely make it again because the taste is fabulous.

Springtime Spaghetti

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
This was really good. Even though I used a full cup of cream, I found the sauce was a bit thick so I added about a half cup of milk to thin it out, which also made more of the sauce. So I also ended up adding about 1/4 cup more Parmesan. Like other reviewers, I added salt and some lemon pepper. Lastly, like another reviewer suggested, I fried up some chopped bacon and added that to the sauce, making it an entree. As an entree, it only served 2 of us.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
These were absolutely FANTASTIC! My picky hubby described them as "crack" and asked for more once they were gone. It was my super tasty on the go breakfast and mid morning snack for the week. The only thing I changed was I used coconut oil instead of veg oil, which I always do for health reasons. Plus it tastes a lot better too. Next time I will try it with whole wheat flour. With all this flavor, I doubt it will make much difference in taste.

Easy Beer and Ketchup Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
This recipe was awful.To start off, I had used chili sauce instead of ketchup, thinking it would add extra zip. THEN, I read the bad reviews after I had already started making this and applied some of the suggested changes. I added salt in pepper to the meatballs (altough atfter I had already rolled the balls) and then added BBQ sauce to the sauce. But they still came out with an OVERWHELMING beer taste. That's all we could taste. It was a huge disappointment to bring these to our superbowl party.

Mostaccioli

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This was a huge hit with my family! Everyone was asking how I made the sauce. My slight variations: I put the peppers and onions into the food processor to make a smoother sauce. I used spicy sausage and I also used much more cheese. Finally, I put the whole pasta mixture in a baking dish, topped with more cheese and baked it at 325f for 20 minutes.

Slow Cooker Oats

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This is simply delicious! in my version, I cut out the sugar because it just doesnt need it with all the other goodies in there. The apple is just a genius idea! I also used coconut oil instead of butter. Oh and last but not least, I made this in my RICE COOKER!!!! My slow cooker is much too large to put a single or double serving of oatmeal, so my husband suggested the rice cooker. I threw everything in when I woke up and it was ready to eat after my shower. Ive made it the last 2 days, always making enough for my mid morning snack as well. I am just so incredibly happy to have found a way to make steelcut oatmeal so easily!

Sauce Rosee

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
I think the recipe has great potential with a few tweaks. I agreed with other reviewers that the wine needs to be boiled for awhile to reduce the strong alcohol taste. I also agree that the thyme flavor was overpowering. And lastly the sauce was a bit thin. Perhaps less thyme and less wine? I served with chicken and motzarella ravioli.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
Loved this!! The flavorful sauce reminded me of something I would order in a fancy Italian restaurant! I will surely make again! Thanks for sharing!! PS. It was just as good with whole wheat spaghetti (hubby doesn't like angel hair). I would however like to know how to get the cream cheese to melt down completely. I had it at room temp when I added it, but still left with chunks.

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
I made this cake after searching for a "brownie cake" at the request of my sister for her birthday.The whole family devoured it and raved about how it was the best cake they have ever had. And get this, I didnt have time to make an icing, so I simple topped it with cool whip before serving. Its that good! I did NOT have a priblem with choc chips sinking, so just follow the directions as listed and you shouldnt either. Its simply divine! I promise! Oh and the only modification was I used coconut oil in place of veg oil. Better tasting and much healthier.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
We LOVED these. They are simply delectable! A couple tips - Freeze the mini peanut butter cups before using them so they don't fall apart. Also, let these cool long enough before taking them out of the pan. If you're in a hurry, put them in the garage or freezer to cool faster.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
This is the best meatloaf I have ever had or made. The brown sugar is what does it! I ran out of ketcup so I ended up using half BBQ sauce/half ketchup and it was fantastic. I may just do that on purpose next time! For those reviewers who didn't like the idea of the sauce on the bottom, you are mistaken! The sauce on the bottom marinates the meat almost thoroughly because its melds with grease (necessary for juicy meatloaf) and keeps the meat moist and flavorful. Putting the sauce on top only allows the oven heat to dry it out. Trust me. Don't change anything about this recipe! I will never use another meatloaf recipe again. Oh and one last thing, I always serve with mashed potatoes!

Penne Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
I also thought this has a great flavor, but it was too greasy/ oily. And i didnt even use any olive oil. I did not drain the sun dried tomatoes because the instructions did not say to do so. So I had to mention this as a caution to others. I would also use less butter next time. Lastly I didnt have time to bake it, but I also didnt find it necessary because all my ingrdients were still hot when I mixed them together.
