Bacon Ranch Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Definitely make your chicken pieces at least 1 inch. We marinated ours over night and it turned out great. My kids loved the flavor but said the best part was the bacon, at least I know that the bacon taste isn't lost. Using thick cut was important for this. The onion pieces helped keep the bacon on. Thanks for the recipe.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
The lime juice and vinegar combination was very nice on the tacos. I added about 1/3 C chopped cilantro to the chicken when it was done cooking. Also I made a chipotle sour cream to with it. A few slices of avocado cooled the heat of the sour cream. Great Cinco De Mayo meal!

Vanilla Berry Parfaits

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
This recipe was a hit with young and well not as young in our house. I used vanilla Greek (fat free) yogurt, cinnamon graham crackers and added a drizzle of honey to each layer. The frozen mixed fruit had cherries in it and I think this was such a great addition. We added a dollop of sugar free cool whip to the top and grated fresh nutmeg on the top. I would definitely recommend adding the nutmeg to EACH layer as it adds something that makes this parfait PERFECT! Great recipe!

Mexican Rice I

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
This was very easy! I grew up thinking that Mexican rice was like macaroni and cheese with tomatoes ~ it just didn't sound appealing. When I had it at Mexican restaurants for some reason I always thought that it was SPANISH rice. After making this I won't hesitate to make/eat it again.

S'more Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Oh wow!! This recipe is so gooey and indulgent it will satisfy almost any sweet tooth. For the sliced bread we only had whole grain and that didn't sound like a good match so we used 2 hotdog buns. Buttered the outsides and spread the peanut butter on both sides. This causes everything to stick well. Instead of mini marshmallows I used 4 of the large marshmallows and cut them in half. They fit perfectly in the buns. We cooked them in a saute pan until both sides were browned and crispy. The salty butter, crispy outside of the bread paired with the sweet melted layers of this sandwich made us really glad we waited until after the kids went to bed to make them. So simple yet so great!

Greek Salad with Spinach & Feta Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Loved this light and tangy salad. I let everyone add the toppings as desired. Also I recommend slicing the olives or everyone will be fighting over the 6 olives. A great summer recipe and the sausage adds a great flavor to the salad.

al fresco Roasted Pepper and Asiago Chicken Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
This is a FANTASTIC dish. It is very quick and easy. You can make everything in one pan and it tastes great. I took this as a meal to a family that had recently adopted 2 girls and everyone LOVED it. The Tabasco was just the right amount that even my "heat sensitive" kids ate every bite and asked for the leftovers the next day.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
My family loves this recipe. It is so moist and juicy. I do make this in the crock pot for about 5 hrs on low. I typically add 1/2 head of cabbage that is cut in quarters and separated about 1 hr before it's done cooking, otherwise you'll just have cabbage mush. Another thing is that the packaging companies seem to think one size fits all when it comes to the seasoning packet. So we looked at the seasoning packet and supplemented with what we had on hand to make sure it was flavorful.

Grilled Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce Over Linguine

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
This sausage is so good. My family loved that it was very flavorful with our being too sweet or too intense. My kids loved it! I used a 12 oz package of sausage (that's what was on the shelf) and it seemed like a lot so 16oz would definitely have been too much. Can't wait to use this in other things. I did puree all but 1/4 cup of the sauce before adding the sausage because my husband is not a fan of chunks of onion or tomato. Also I added 1T of cornstarch to thicken it. Based on the reviews and the type of wine I had on hand I did 1/4c of red wine and 1/2c of low sodium chicken broth.

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
GREAT!! So surprised as I didn't find many other successes with this cereal. Co workers loved and raved about it. I did realize later that it says makes 48...mine made 18. So perhaps I measured with a heavy hand. One tip: be careful eating them out of the fridge...they get VERY hard.

Hoisin (but not really) Country Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Very good! I didn't have peanut oil so I used the Smart Balance oil on hand. I agree with another reviewer that browning isn't necessary. I cooked them on high for 4 hours and the bones we're falling out. I love the ease of this recipe and the short list of ingredients. I would suggest trying a whole onion, adding garlic and some sriracha for some heat. A good side in my opinion would be quinoa, sticky rice, or a steamed/grilled veggie.

Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
These cookies turn out so wonderful! I did go ahead and use the whole bag (2c) of chunks. Start with 11min for the first batch since your pans are cool. I also recommend keeping the dough in the fridge between batches. For subsequent batches start with an 8 min timer since your pans are hot. Next time I think the next time I make these I will add 3T brewed coffee. We always have a little left in the pot.

Dark Chocolate Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
VERY RICH! Substituted a white cake mix for the flour sugar and salt. The nuts add that extra crunch. So yummy. If you find that the crumb mixture is too "wet" add a little flour.

Tater Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
Really good! I only switched the soup to cream of chicken because my hubby really isn't a fan of onions so the amount already called for was enough for him to take. My girls both asked for more after finishing their first serving in about 5 min (usually takes them 30-45 min to eat supper) so I would say kid friendly as well. We did add cheddar cheese on the top and didn't really think that it added anything. I will probably double the worcestershire and ketchup mixture and maybe add green onions. Really good recipe and easy on the budget.

Festive Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
I made this for a celebration at work and it turned out really well. I inadvertently made the following changes I used 1lb mild country sausage and a whole loaf of bread (helps to check the recipe and not do it from memory). At first I didn't think there was enough liquid but it turned out ok. I liked the amount of sausage I used, think it would have been too much bread for my taste with out it. It was a good casserole but really basic. I wouldn't describe it as festive at all. I think that next time I'll add pepper jack cheese and a mixture of bacon and sausage.

Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
This was super good! We use dehydrated onion and added 1 1/2 italian seasoning to the meat. Also followed a reviewers advice of adding 1/4C butter and 2tbsp minced garlic to the cheese and sour cream mixture. My girls (5 and under) said it was fantastic. We'll probably do 1/2lb italian sausage and 1/2 lb hamburger next time! SOO good.

Veggie Pizza Faces

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
My kids aren't really fans of eating the faces...they like a supreme pizza where they get topping on every bite BUT it was really fun to make and a healthy pizza option. I loved the idea of using the ranch as glue and I also mixed ranch dressing mix in my pizza sauce.

Bubbie's Grits Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
We have seen several things about grits and have wanted to try them so this was a great opportunity to do that. This recipe was really simple. We followed the directions exactly. It didn't need very much salt at all in our opinion ~ you'll want to taste it to see if salt and pepper are needed before adding in the eggs since tasting raw eggs can potentially make you sick. It is rather runny so moving it to the oven can be a little tricky. We cooked it for 30 min and checked it, it was bubbly but not golden brown. 10 more minutes and a beautiful browned cheesy crust and the grits were completely set. Great creaminess from the processed cheese and the sharpness from the cheddar and who doesn't love bacon? I sprinkled cilantro on the top and chalula sauce on my plate (after tasting so I could review fairly). My one question was why did I need to cook 8 slices of bacon to only use some of the grease and half of the cooked bacon? Perhaps I was supposed to sprinkle it on the top with the cheddar cheese. I make a bacon sandwich instead ;)
