Walnut-Tarragon Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
Good, but needs a little something, so I made a milk gravy from the frying oil and the little bit of flour mixture that was left. Y'all. Do that. Seriously.

Apricot Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
Pretty good as written, but I left out the optional onions. I'm glad, because they had no business in this recipe. Needed a little something, so the second time I added some cayenne pepper, used skinless bone-in chicken, and baked in the oven @ 350, basting occasionally. Cover with foil to keep the sauce from burning. My hubby likes to buy different kinds of balsamic vinegar, so I used some that had figs in it. That was awesome.

Veggie Lasagna Florentine

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2013
We LOVE this recipe. I use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese, and add a splash of balsamic vinegar to the sauce instead of the brown sugar. You can play with the flavors all you want, and it's still a good dish. I disagree with the no-boil comments, though. Boil the noodles first for the right texture. If you don't, the crunchy parts that stick out that everybody loves to fight over get burnt and chewy.

Really, really good! Next time I'm going to put a little white wine in with the butter and lemon juice.

I'll probably never make another lentil soup. Can't get much better than this.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
Love this! Do double the sauce, especially if serving with rice. I leave out the garlic, because there's really no benefit from that little bit of garlic anyway, and this is a no-chop meal without it. Lazy. This is a good dish for the lazy. :-)

Loved! It needed something, though. Maybe a dash of balsamic vinegar.

Black Beans a la Olla

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Great recipe. Just the right amount of spice and easy to make. I used a pound of dried beans instead of canned. Just put them in the slow cooker with about 5 cups of water for a few hours before adding the rest of the ingredients. It takes about 8 hours this way. Left out the cilantro because my hubby won't allow it, but I think it would be a wonderful addition if you don't have picky eaters in the house. Added a splash of vinegar toward the end to fix the lack of umph. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe!

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Didn't change a thing except to crush some cookies to go on top. Best banana pudding ever!

Chickpea and Pasta Soup

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Pretty good! The only thing I changed was to add about a 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar. It lacked acidity for me. Taste it before you add the vinegar, since it may be due to the brand of tomatoes I used. Also, if you use dried rosemary (which I did) let it simmer a little longer so the flavor can develop.

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
Needs a little extra something. I'll take reviewers' advice next time and add some diced red pepper and maybe some bacon. Not a bad way to use up some zucchini.

Naan

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
A few tips: Leave the garlic out. It makes no sense. Use a pizza stone in a 425 oven, turning once for browning on both sides, and drizzle the butter on after the bread is finished. Also, if you have a tortilla press, use it! Save yourself the trouble of rolling the dough. This bread isn't exactly authentic. As my husband's Indian co-worker says, if it has any flavor, you're not doing it right! This is very good bread, though. I've made it several times using both my pizza stone and my Foreman grill. Use a stone if you have one. You get a better texture this way. This recipe has become my go-to for naan, even though it's not remotely what I expected the first time I made it.

Seasoning For Tacos

Would have been great with about half the salt. I'll use this again with that adjustment.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
Not too bad, not too good. Update: I made these buns ahead of time and only tasted one by itself before I made my first comment. After having garden burgers with them, I'm changing my rating from 3 to 4 stars. These are actually great buns! I do think I may have overworked the dough a little, which messes with the texture a bit. Next time I'll set my timer.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I have no idea how this recipe actually tastes using green beans. I used asparagus instead. I also skipped the parsley, as it was superfluous. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. It was a big hit with the family at Easter! You can just trim the asparagus or cut it into bite-sized segments, steam the asparagus for 5 minutes to soften, then saute with the rest of the ingredients. I'll be doing this again and again. Even my 3 year old enjoyed it.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
This is a fantastic and simple dish. I'll be doing this again--often! I used half-and-half, because that's what I had on hand. It would definitely be a little bit better with heavy cream. It needs the richness.
