Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Fabulous! Again the father in law did not care for this, but everyone else loved them. Cant always use fresh parsley of Parmesan cheese but it still tastes great. Only time consuming part was making the meatballs. But I make this at least once a month.

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
I did not have masa harina so I just crumbled like a dozen or so corn tortillas in the soup and they dissolved just fine. I also boiled my chicken instead of frying, I figured it works for chicken soup so why not enchilada soup. I just boil the chicken with chicken base, cumin garlic salt, onion powder, pepper and coriander. Sometimes I over boil a bit so it shreds easily, and always let it cool in its broth so its tender and juicy. I think that works out better so I have the fresh chicken broth, for more flavor I get some chicken bones from the meat market. Anyways I loved this combo it was a little spicy but so good, gave a bowl to my sister who usually sneers at my food and she enjoyed it. I will make again. (hope sister does not read reviews on this site, lol)

Quinoa Pilaf with Shredded Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
This was very tasty! Everyone in my house loved it, including my picky 7 yr old and father in law. My husband packed it for lunch and he said everyone kept complimenting the appearance and smell. I did not have fresh sage, I used ground sage. Before I realized I had that ground sage I had added thyme and rosemary as a substitute. Oh and I used olive oil since I had no coconut oil. We made this 2 weeks ago and we are making again today , but I will add more veggies. I would recommend this recipe!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
I have only made about two turkeys, the first was just buttered, I preferred this way more. Usually I find turkey dry, but this yielded a juicy turkey. I will make this again. Only downside was I had to spend like nearly 15 dollars on the ingredients, not including the turkey and I had to buy a food grade bucket, another $15. But the bucket has come in handy for other recipes.

Chicken Teriyaki

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Let me start by saying I don't even like Teriyaki, I tried this because the hubby and son love it. I have made this like 10 times already and its fantastic. I use brown sugar instead of white, I also use low sodium soy sauce, and use all of the pineapple juice. The sauce is flavorful enough that I don't salt the chicken. The first time I made this my 2 yr old ate 8 drumsticks, poor daddy only got 2. Even my nephew who just flat out hates eating likes this. The only con is that I end up eating too much. Oh and sometimes I don't have real ginger so I use ground ginger and the soy sauce bottle only contains about 15 oz so I use that instead of the 18 required. Thanks.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
I was not even a fan of carrot cake until I tried this. My sister mentioned carrot cake was her favorite cake so on her birthday I baked this for her and everyone loved it including me. This was really delicious. I am going to use anyone's birthday as an excuse to make this again.

Chicken Stew With Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Made on the stove with my dutch oven. Flavor was lacking something as others said, but otherwise was not bad. This was so easy to make which was a +. I served it with quinoa which thickened it up a bit. Maybe making it in the micro activates some extra flavor. I may make again.

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2014
My daughter is the usually the one who inspires me to try recipes and mimic restaurant food items, if I don't when we go out to a family dinner she always picks the same places. She has decided she loves these more than the ones at Chilis, she even said last time we were there that theirs did not taste as good anymore. Unfortunately, these are not too healthy with the frying of tortillas, but I still make them occasionally. To reduce the unhealthiness I just make the filling for lunch without the cheese, and pair it with some beans or quinoa. This recipe is a keeper!

Cream Cheese Bars I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
so I had a cream cheese frosting that was going to expire and my dad had bought an extra yellow cake mix the day before. I found this recipe gave it a shot. I mixed the frosting with vanilla and one egg. I added chocolate chips on one side between the layers. Other than that I followed the directions. I never had anything like this, it was pretty tasty, just a little too sweet. I will make again with minor adjustments.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
Everyone in my house loves these. Even my father in law who claims pork gives him tummy aches, eats these up. (cooking is a pain with 3 picky kids and an even pickier FIL, lol)I don't always make the sauce because the chops on their own are great, especially when paired with biscuits and gravy. If the chops are thin enough sometimes they don't require any bake time, but if they do I find that an hour is way too long. Thanks for this recipe its an A++ in my book.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
I have always made my Alfredo with cream cheese, so I thought I would try this recipe. I chopped fresh garlic and sauteed it in the butter, I also added some chopped green onion. I also cut the butter by 2 tbsp and did not use fresh Parmesan, bu tused the jarred type and this turned out great. Will be making this again.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
been making this one since my husband started requesting it two years ago. I was a little reluctant to make it since having tried the Marie Callenders version. But man I have made this over 30 times now. Its never runny and always gets raves!! I have recommended it.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
My husband and 2 yr old son loved this recipe, but my 7 yr old daughter and father in law said it was too sweet. I very much liked it, but added a pinch of cayenne pepper and some celery salt instead of salt. Next time I will double the green peppers.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
these are fantastic! Kneading it was a pain and a bit hard, so was rolling it out, but it was all so worth it. I do think the half cup baking soda and 4 cups water can be reduced. Going to make this again, and again and so on

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
This was so delicious. But I did smoke up my entire apartment, my dad thought I was burning down the house. But I will still make this again. I did only oil the breast but I think I have a cheap cast iron skillet. I also seared the chicken alittle longer and they baked for close to 40 mins at 375. Maybe they were just too thick. I was worried the inside may not have any flavor but that was not the case, this recipe made a flavorful and juicy breast. I think I will try this without the oil next time so this can be extra healthy.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
The muffins were tasty, but I think I will do the 50/50 brown sugar white sugar mix next time. Now the topping was a disaster for me. Maybe my muffin tray was too small because the topping melted off to the sides even onto the bottom of my oven. The topping that did remain was very crispy almost burnt. I think I should have added it the last 5 mins of baking. I will try again though.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
These came out so fluffy and delicious, I guess it was the mixing of the baking soda with water. ( I now do that with other baking recipes) Thanks so much for that. I always try a different recipe for chocolate chip cookies but wont cheat on this one. Update. I read someone's review who had substituted banana for the eggs. I had already made the batter and used half but decided to add a banana. The cookies turned out even better.
