Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
I took this recipe and added some rotisserie chicken from the market. I also made my own pesto sauce using pesto,basil, garlic,olive oil,vegetable oil, salt, pepper, and almonds. I have no need to eat at panera bread anymore this was fantastic. Thanks. Oh skipped the American cheese.

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

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
I followed some of the suggestions like first 10 min at 350 then 45 at 300 and it was done, chilled it on the counter 30 mins and in the fridge 30 mins just to make sure it was set. This was my first attempt at a pecan pie so I was playing the guessing game while worrying it would fall apart after trying to slice it so soon after it was done. I also added 1/2 cup extra pecans and reduced the sugar by some. I also reduced the butter by 1 1/2 tbs. This pie was not overly sweet, just right. Will try all brown sugar next time. Got rave reviews even from my ridiculously picky 4 yr old (seriously don't know how he survives sometimes). Will make this again just not too soon, this pie could be trouble cause of how delicious and simple it is to make.

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.

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!

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!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2015
Amazing. I like to boil my chicken as if I were making chicken soup, add the veggies (carrots, potatoes and celery) last 15 mins. After it cools strain everything so I have my chicken broth. I also prefer onion powder in my roux to actual onions, found the chopped onions keep getting stuck on my whisk. I only use a top crust, but require 2 as I use an 11-13 glass for baking, so I change the servings to 24 (butter, flour, milk, broth, spices) in order to accommodate my pie. Even if your pie is meant to be much smaller I still think the liquid must be adjusted to prevent dryness. Time consuming recipe but so worth it!

Turkey Pinwheel

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
I didn't make as described because I wanted more in my pinwheel. I only had 6 oz turkey so I made one for 2 servings. I used only the egg white and after flattening the turkey out I decided to chop onions, garlic, green and red pepper and smush them into the flattened turkey. I used fresh spinach also and used cayene as well. This may sound odd but another turkey recipe I used had cocoa powder in it, so I spinkled a very minimal amount on the turkey. I do think this might call for spaghetti sauce instead but I felt it really could have even not used any sauce. This is only the 3 rd time I have used ground turkey because I hated it, well no more. Mine was so small it cooked in about 30 mins.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2015
Very tasty, I like to add celery and green bell peppers plus replace the chili powder with a few pinches of cayenne. Sometimes I omit the vinegar or Worcester sauce because I don't have them on hand, still tastes great.

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
Been a while since I made this soup so came here to have my mind refreshed. This is very close to how I make it, except I use stewed canned tomatoes and a beef bouillon cube instead of the beef broth. I also like to blend a potato in water and add it for thickness. This is a very good recipe, some don't have the step of frying up the meat which makes a huge differnce. Excellent recipe, yields a great flavor soup that the whole family can appreciate. Don't understand the reviews complaining about all that is involved, I guess I am just used to cooking because the steps take me about 20 mins, and once it is simmering there is plenty of time to clean up or write reviews before having to add the veggies. Oh I add cumin sometimes and serve it up with tortillas.

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.
