This was delicious. Made it almost exactly as written except that I added fresh basil instead of parsley. Also added some garlic salt. Everyone loved it!

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I only made a few changes. Used a pound of boneless chicken breast, pounded thin and then sliced, and only needed about 1/2 cup of flour. Doubled green pepper, onion and used 2 cans of diced tomatoes. The rest was pretty much like the reciped called for. Served over pasta with a sprinkle of parm cheese. It was delicous. Light and healthy tasting. The only thing I would do differently next time is season the chicken a bit more. Thanks for the great recipe!

Southern Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
Delicious! Followed recipe except I put the onions on the bottom like someone suggested, and then mixed the rest of the ingredients together and poured it over the pork. Cooked on high for 4 hours and low on 4 hours and the pork fell apart. After shredding, I put the pork back in 1/2 the sauce mixed with some additional barbeque sauce. Awesome recipe! Thanks!

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
I first tried this recipe exactly as printed, and thought it was just okay. Wasn't crazy about the oriental seasoning, and I especially did not like the sweet taste the liquid from the corn gave the dish. Tonight I tried it again, this time using 1lb of beef, two cans of diced tomatoes, two packages of ramen noodles, without using the seasoning packets, one can of corn, and then added about 3/4 cup of tomato sauce, a little fat free half and half, and some parmesan cheese. Delicious!!

Spinach Kugel

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I liked this, just didn't love it. I was not happy with the overwhelming flavor of the onion soup mix. Next time I will try with sauteed onions and maybe even mushrooms. Maybe some fresh garlic? And then add seasonings to taste. Also, the noodles on top were too hard and crunchy. I will cover next time.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I made this recipe exactly as printed, except I only had it in the crockpot for 10 hours and it was extremely tender. We liked it, but thought it was lacking flavor. I used regular soy sauce and thought it actually needed more salt. Next time, I would season the meat before putting it in the crock pot. Still, a delicious easy meal.

Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I can't believe I've never had Chicken a la King before, but this was my first time. My family really enjoyed this dish! Made it almost exactly as written except that I didn't have a green pepper, so I used green peas, instead. Also added a sliced onion and some fresh garlic with the mushrooms. I spilled my reserved mushroom liquid, so I added a second can. Served over rice. Delicious comfort food.

Pesto Chicken Penne Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I thought this was delicious. I wanted to let people know that there is an easier way to make this to save time and reduce clean-up. I used my large stockpot and boiled the pasta first. I then drained the pasta and let it sit in a colander in the sink. In the same pot that I made the pasta, I then cooked thinly sliced chicken in some oil, and added some fresh garlic. After the chicken was cooked, I added the other ingredients right to the pot, mixed it well, and then added the penne. No need for additional mixing bowls. I then poured the mixture into my large 9 x 13 baking stone, and had no problem fitting it all in. Next I sprinkled on the topping and baked for 30 minutes, which was plenty. I thought it was delicious and will make again. I did reduce the chicken to 1 1/2 pounds, the cheese to 2 cups, the pesto to 8 oz, and the penne to 3/4 of the box. If making again, I would do exactly the same, except use the entire box of penne. THis was a keeper! Thanks, Linda!

Chicken, Cheese, and Wine

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
This recipe sounds delicious, but there has got to be a mistake in the cook time. 90 minutes on 350 degrees for boneless chicken breasts? They would be dried up and shriveled!!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Just perfect! Easy and delicious!! I put my asparagus in a ziploc bag and tossed them with all the ingredients. The garlic is a must! The only thing I did different was added garlic salt instead of regular salt. Thanks for a great recipe!!

Amazing Spinach Artichoke Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Just a few notes...I always use light cream cheese, light sour cream, margarine instead of butter, and light mayo....which will greatly reduce the fat but not the flavor. Yes, it's on the decadent side, but it's well worth it for special occasions. Enjoy!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
This was really delicious! Prepared almost exactly as written except that I only used 1/4 c butter and 1/4 c margarine to cut the fat. And I added about a 1/2 cup of wine to make up the difference so that there would be enough sauce for my linguni. Baked for about 10 minutes, served over pasta. Also added some garlic salt. Really, really good. Restaurant quality. And you can add some other spices if desired...some basil, red pepper flakes, cajun seasoning...but we enjoyed it as is. And very easy and quick!!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This was very good. I made a low fat version, deleting the butter. I would probably give it 4 stars the way I made it, but considering how much richer it would have tasted with the butter, I'm giving it 5 stars. Still, it was worth it to me to save on the fat and calories. I also added some spinach which was delicious. The dish had a very fresh flavor and my entire family enjoyed it. I doubled the sauce and used an entire box of pasta.

Betsy's Poppy Seed Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
I've been making this recipe for's a family favorite. The only thing that I do different is use only cream of chicken soup. I'll have to try it with the combination of chicken and mushroom soups. In order to make it healthier, I only use 98% fat free soup, light sour cream, and I always serve it over rice mixed with broccoli or spinach.

Asparagus Soup in Seconds

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I did not care for this at all. The taste of the canned asparagus is still with me, and there was a bunch of stringy, hard pieces. Sorry...but go for the fresh asparagus.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Delicious. Used a 3 lb chuck roast, two packets of seasoning, and beef broth instead of water. Cooked for 8 hours on low, and it wasn't tender, so I cut it in smaller pieces and put it on high for 2 additional hours. Fell apart. Served on toasted crusty rolls with melted sharp provolone, long hots and roasted red peppers. Awesome!

Buffalo Chicken and Ranch Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Delicious! I made a few changes. The quantities seemed off...3 lbs of chicken is a lot of chicken for only 1/4 cup buffalo sauce. I used about 1 1/2 pounds of chicken, 5 slices of precooked bacon, and just sauted the chicken in some oil, adding chopped onion and garlic. I then proceeded as instructed, adding the melted butter, buffalo sauce and wrapping it in the tortilla with lettuce, tomato shredded cheese and ranch dressing. We all loved it. Thanks!

Spinach and Bacon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
Loved it! Made some changes. I pounded the chicken breasts and sauted them whole. I also added seasoning to the flour. Garlic salt and pepper. Also seasoned the chicken with garlic salt. I used pre-cooked bacon in the microwave and then sauted the chicken in oil/butter. Took out the chicken, sauted fresh garlic, added the wine, spinach, then cream, and also added some parmesan cheese. I let it cook down and thicken, and I needed to add in more wine. Then added back the chicken, topped with bacon and tossed in 3/4 pound of cooked thin spaghetti. Tasted like something you would find at Olive Garden! Everyone loved it.
