Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
This was very tasty. I am not usually a fan of broccoli casserole but was asked to make some for a pot luck and tried this recipe. I followed the advice of others and skipped the egg, used 1/2 cup each of mayo and sour cream, used white pepper instead of black, and added some garlic powder. I mixed all the other ingredients in a large bowl first then stirred in the broccoli before putting it all in a pan. I realized too late that I forgot to butter my pan and was worried it would stick but it didn't. I also made it the night before so the broccoli was no longer frozen and it took only about 35-40 min to cook. I'd definitely make this again. Everyone went back for seconds.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2014
The flavor of the chicken was good as the recipe was written, but I'm glad I followed the advice of others to make a gravy with chicken broth and cornstarch. It made it that much better. This recipe came together easily and was quick enough for a busy week-night meal.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2014
This is a quick and easy recipe that everyone loved. I made it with dried basil as I did not have any fresh on hand and it was yummy. I found it cooks quicker and the liquid was absorbed faster than the stated time, so don't leave it unattended. It does clump together if not eaten immediately, so next time I may try cooking it with olive oil as others have suggested.

Shrimp Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
We really liked this recipe and the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was b/c if I hadn't read other reviews first, I wouldn't have known to cook the potatoes and soften the cream cheese before adding them to avoid frustration and/or burning the milk due to the long melt/cook time. I followed the recipe except for these changes: I omitted the celery & salt and substituted 1/4 tsp of celery salt because I didn't have any celery on hand. I increased the onions to 2/3 cup b/c we like onions. I used Neufchatel cheese in place of the cream cheese and softened it in the microwave before adding it to the stock pot to reduce time needed to melt it. It still took a while to melt, though. I upped the potatoes to 3 cups and boiled them in one can of reduced sodium chicken broth with 1 Tbsp of Old Bay and when the potatoes were fork tender, I added the entire mixture. We had 17 extra large-sized shrimp (which had been steamed with Old Bay) leftover from Christmas, and I cut them into bite sized pieces before adding. I also used 2 cups frozen white corn (b/c I can't imagine chowder without corn), 1 extra Tbsp Old Bay (we're from MD and love our Old Bay!), and 1/4 tsp white pepper. This made 6 cereal-sized bowls of soup. I was full after one bowl, but my husband ate THREE because he thought it was so good! This could easily make a meal if served with salad and/or crusty bread. Or as another reviewer suggested, serve it in a bread bowl. Thanks for a great starter recipe!

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
I made this recipe this morning because we are preparing for hurricane Sandy and are expecting long-term power outages starting as soon as tomorrow. I was looking for a way to use up all the yogurt I had in my fridge (too much for us to just eat) and this recipe was perfect because not only did I prevent the yogurt from going to waste, but the muffins are perfect to add to our stock-pile of storm-friendly foods that don't require refrigeration or cooking! I didn't have any fresh fruit on hand, so I used two 6oz containers of yogurt per recipe and it turned out perfectly. The recipe made 1.5 dozen cupcake-sized muffins. I made strawberry-banana muffins this morning and am about to make a few more batches using blueberry-strawberry and cherry-vanilla yogurt. Thanks a million for sharing this recipe!!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
Delicious! I used 6 fresh jalapenos from my garden, but I removed the seeds and membranes and I think next time I will either use the whole pepper or use more peppers because the dip was very mild. I followed the recommendations of others and used 1/2 cup each of mayo and sour cream, and added some cheddar to both the dip and mixed it with the fresh parm on top. I didn't have any breadcrumbs but we didn't mind the "cheese crust" that formed. We tried it with cucumber slices and that was tasty, but our favorite was Italian bread, thin-sliced and toasted (the store was out of French bread). Thanks for this great recipe!

Quick Elephant Ears

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Great easy recipe! My mom used to make these for us when we were little and I wanted to make them for my kids and this was the perfect home recipe. The kids loved them and my 5 year old was able to help put the sugar coating on, which he really enjoyed. We used a cinnamon blend that included nutmeg, allspice, ginger, orange peel & cloves in addition to the cinnamon and it was delicious. Thanks for sharing!

Spiced Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I went in search of a banana bread recipe because I had several bananas that were over-ripe and I hated to throw them away. This version was very tasty. I like banana bread with walnuts, but I was out of them so I added chopped pecans instead and it was still delicious. I will definitely make this one again.
