Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2014
This was a pretty easy recipe to make, but I made it as-written and agree with those who said that it was kind of bland. The boiled chicken and white rice fill out the baking dish but don't do much to enhance the final flavor. I think the concept is fine and I might try making the dish again with some modifications. Instead of boiling the chicken, I would suggest brushing it with oil and southwestern spices and roasting it in the oven. It's nearly as fast and easy as boiling and will yield a much nicer flavor and texture. I would also do what some others have suggested and use a Spanish or Mexican rice instead of plain white rice. (I also found that I had more rice than I needed with this recipe and had to leave some out so that I didn't overfill my baking dish.) I would also sauté the chopped onion, along with a clove of minced garlic. And while I'm a big fan of cheese, I'd probably cut that back a bit too, maybe 3 cups total instead of 4, because it just seemed like a bit too much at the end.

Italian Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
It's a reasonably simple recipe for very basic bread bowls, but this doesn't even come close to making 8 reasonable bowls. I cut it down to 6, as other reviewers suggested, but even then they felt too small to be useful for a dish like soup. If I try the recipe again I wouldn't make more than 4 bowls out of it.

Tasty BBQ Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
This recipe has potential, but when cooked as directed the finished product was a little disappointing. The butter of course melts as the corn cooks, and as it drips off the corn onto the foil it seems to take most of the seasoning with it. So while the corn was moist and cooked-through, it lacked the flavor punch I was expecting when I mixed up so much seasoning. I may try this again but applying the butter spread after I cook the corn.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
This was pretty easy to make, but the flavor was definitely a disappointment. I followed the instructions other than using corn tortillas instead of flour (which I think improves the final product). Everything came out moist and creamy, but just had surprisingly little flavor. If I can figure out what it's missing I'll try it again, as the ease of preparation and the final texture were both satisfactory.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
This was pretty good. As others have suggested, I added a little cumin, but otherwise prepared this as-is. The results were reasonably good both as a burrito and as a dip. I don't know why some people thought this made too much filling. Using the quantities in the recipe I was able to make 2 burritos, neither of them anywhere near bursting. I'll make this again, but next time I'll try some adding some cheese and/or salsa on top, as I think that would enhance the finished product.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
This is a pretty good soup. As others have suggested, I roasted the squash ahead of time and cut the cream cheese in half and was pleased with the results. I also doubled the amount of cayenne pepper as some suggested. I enjoyed the final flavor but there's no doubt it was a little hot.

Bacon Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Amazing. Best risotto recipe I've had. Flavor is off-the-charts. Note that any recipe starting with half a pound of bacon is going to be very rich. I've found that 4 cups of chicken stock is perfect for the 1.5 cups of arborio rice.

Salsafied Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
The end result was pretty good. Some have advocated using "real" rice (e.g. non-instant rice). We tried that and it was difficult to get it to cook through, so I'll stick to the instant rice in the future.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Great ziti recipe. Served at a dinner party and it was a big hit. As others have noted, this will more than fill your baking dish. 16oz of noodles is a couple of ounces too much.

Parmesan Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Delicious! As others have noted, if you're using salted butter you can just cut out the other salt altogether.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Fantastic pie crust! Flavor is better than any pie crust you'll get at the grocery store. Watch the edges while baking because they can burn.
