Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2015
Could not believe how delicious this was! I rarely cook with canned soup products, but this is one recipe I'll be making over and over and over again. I did jazz up the chicken a bit by marinating it in a little olive oil, red pepper flakes, garlic, salt & pepper for a good hour or so - but aside from that stayed true to recipe. Will double the amount of broccoli next time (personal preference) ... didn't weigh our chicken, but used 1 large and 1 medium size breast so it was probably pretty close to a pound. Served with romaine salad and garlic bread. Hubs has already had 2 plates and is claiming the last portion for his lunch tomorrow. Snap to make. Oh - forgot - I didn't use Parmesan cheese - used freshly grated Pecorino Romano which was perfect.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2015
My granddaughter & I made these and we LOVED them! I did as so many others suggested, using half butter & half shortening and (with a halved recipe) used 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/2 cup regular. Ours required no refrigeration, baked up beautifully in 9 minutes, and had just the right amount of chocolaty flavor. Thanks so much for recipe!

Grilled Chicken Wings with Sweet Red Chili and Peach Glaze

Reviewed: May 29, 2015
I know many of you hate this, but when a good recipe inspires me, I can't simply ignore it and neglect to give credit. So I had to cobble this together with available ingredients and we LOVED it. Threw everything into Ninja and blended: 6oz orange marmalade, 2 frozen peach slices, 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce (stuff we have is pretty spicy), squirt of Sriracha sauce, juice of 1/2 a lime, and a tablespoon of cilantro. Oh my - - - deliciously orangy/peachy - sweet and spicy - this would be great on stirfry, chicken breasts, pork - in short, everything they mentioned. Thanks so much for the inspiration! If I every get my hands on a good batch of apricots and can make some preserves, will certainly give that a whirl. I like the zesty tang of orange and lime, however.

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 24, 2015
GREAT! My only complaint was that I could taste granules of sugar in the finished product. Still we devoured. I'll probably cut down on the sugar next time, esp with sweet fruit, but all in all SO quick and SO easy :) Thanks so much for recipe!

Greek Chicken & Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2015
So I'm on this blasted diet and while I would love to smoother this in ranch dressing and onion ring bits, I can't (sad sorrowful face). 5 stars for nutritional value and fullness factor. This will not knock your socks off, but all things given it's darn good. The chicken itself is full of flavor and insanely juicy. The Kalamata olives and Feta cheese give much needed flavor. All in all, I'm happy. But it's better in a wrap. I should know - John just made one and it's delicious!

Mini Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2015
One eggplant was supposed to serve 4. HA! We ate half as soon as they came out of the frying pan ... the remaining portion that we managed NOT to scarf and actually top with cheese were devoured. These puppies are delicious. Dangerously so.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2015
We just didn't care for this at all. Made as directed except did the 3 layers as so many others suggested. Used mandolin to slice potatoes at 1/8" and some of them still weren't cooked completely thru. Did not care at all for the cinnamon & cloves in the meat (so sorry). I would like to try this again, only without the cinn/cloves and using mashed potatoes instead of sliced. My apologies, but just not for us.

Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
I needed a pick me up so I substituted some coffee ice cubes I had in place of regular ice cubes. I also processed the oats a bit before adding milk so they'd soften a bit quicker. Lastly, I only had about half the frozen banana called for so I was short on that. Nonetheless, LOVED IT! Because I was craving a chocolate shake (grin) threw on a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Yeah - I know, defeats the whole purpose of a healthy smoothie, but heck. Life's short :)

Fettuccine with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2015
Insanely incredibly unbelievably wonderful. The crunch of the asparagus was delightful against the creamy sauce and the bacon gave it just the right amount of salt. We made intending to use as a side dish with T-bones ... T-bones went virtually untouched as we gobbled this down. SO SO good! Just a note: we both agreed sliced hot Italian sausage would be a great addition to dish ... will try that next.

Asian Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2015
This wasn't bad, by any means ... but it didn't wow us, either. Made as directed, marinading chicken for a good 9 hrs. Just 'eh'. Many thanks for recipe anyway.

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
I really enjoyed these. Halved recipe (using olive oil and perhaps a half tsp of Italian Seasoning). The first batch I left as made (although I did mist the top with olive oil) - took about 20-22" to fully cook. Second batch I misted, then sprinkled with kosher salt, garlic powder, and Pecorino Romano cheese. Both were great (although I have to admit we preferred the one with the cheese on top). Will def make again - my thanks so much for recipe!

Romaine with Garlic Lemon Anchovy Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2015
UPDATE: I let this sit for a couple of hours and was still of the opinion it lacked *something* ... went ahead and tossed in a few T of grated Romano and a squirt of Dijon ... let it sit another couple of hours and then served with dinner. Hubby loved. ORIGINAL: Just made and while it was super quick and easy, I'm hoping there'll be a better punch once I let it sit for a while and let the flavors meld. My only change was to use a tsp of anchovy paste as I was out of anchovies.

Roast Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2015
These were wonderful! I made a medley of broccoli, baby carrots, and the red potatoes. As others mentioned, had to cook a little longer than 20 minutes - around 30, I believe, but that's it. Delicious!

Easy Hamburger Green Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2015
Lord have mercy, this stuff is AWESOME!!!! Made primarily as directed using 12oz ground beef, 1 can mild chilies, and a few jalapenos. Used around 7 cups of chicken stock and let reduce for 25 minutes ... it's still pretty thin, but will wait and see how it thickens up tonights. Regardless, the taste is out of this world! Thanks SO much for sharing!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
This was good. Halved recipe, used 3 slices of bacon, white & green onions. We felt it needed a little more seasoning, so we added a little granulated garlic, some paprika, and a squirt of horseradish mustard. Husband loved the addition of bacon. Thanks so much for recipe!
