Caprese on a Stick

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
These were awesome. I took them to a wine tasting party. Only thing different I did was add a splash of balsamic. Every one LOVED them and they look so pretty on the platter.

Cavatelli and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
This was very good. I only gave it 4 stars because I did have to make several adjustments. Many of the other reviewers made similar comments. I used a good bit of salt (1/8 to 1/4 C.)in the water when boiling the pasta. I also added several cloves of garlic to the water for flavor. After boiling the pasta I saved about 2 cups of the water and used that to cook the broccoli. I quickly shocked the broccoli in ice water to keep it bright green. Put my drained broccoli and pasta into the pot together and added the cheese, oil and red pepper flakes. I did not add any additional salt. It was delicious!

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I rated this 4 stars only because I had to make a few adjustments to turn it into a 5 star recipe. I marinated by pounded chicken breasts in Italian dressing all day. Used fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese and sprinkled fresh grated parmesan romano cheese on top before baking. I served with spaghetti squash and marinara sauce. I live a low-carb life so this was perfect!

Sweet Grilled Peaches

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
These were good. I sliced mine in half, removed the pit, sprayed each with a little olive oil. I mixed the honey and cinnamon together in a bowl with a little brown sugar. I dipped each peach 1/2 in the mixture and layed them "meat" side down on the gril. Beautiful grill marks and carmelization from the brown sugar. We served ours with ice creama and whipped cream. Very good!

Awesome Broccoli Marinara

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
I made this with fresh tomatoes and fresh basil. It was pretty good. Added cubed fresh buffalo mozzarella at the end of cooking, gave it a quick toss and served with grilled chicken. Hubs and I both enjoyed. Nice to enjoy broccoli a little different.

BBQ Chuck Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This is a great recipe. I was craving roast but it's Summer so I didn't want to fix something heavy. This was the purfect answer! I did overcook it a bit. Cooked it to 160 degrees and meant to only take it to 145 as I like my beef rare and DH likes his medium - with resting time I think 145 would have been perfect. My fault but still declicious. Due to size of roast there were still some pink spots. Next time I'll watch the temp. a bit closer. Great Summer roast recipe! Thank you Ahmad!

Chinese Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
My Mom makes a salad very similar. I was craving it and couldn't get a hold of her to get the dressing recipe. Found this and it is so similar. Absolutely delicious! I made a few changes to mimic my Mother's recipe. Used Napa Cabbage and added sliced red peppers, mandarin oranges,bamboo shoots, sliced English cucumbers, omitted almonds and added toasted sesame seeds. Dressing was spot on! I did add a bit of apple juice to dressing because I didn't have apple cider vinegar and wanted that kick but absolutely perfect!!!! Yummmm! The whole family loved this!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
This was sooooo moist and delish! I did soak the bird in beer and onion and garlic all day. Then stuck it up there on that beer can to cook in the stove @ 350. Basted it once with a mixture of melted butter and honey mustard. Juice was dripping from the breast meat! Keeper!!!

Succulent Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
This was really good. I make the same think with pork roasts - either sauerkraut or pulled pork. So this was a nice change. The whole family enjoyed it. I did substitute a can of pitted sweet dark cherries for the maraschino cherries (didn't have those on hand). The dark reds lent a very deep flavor to the roast. I did salt my roast lightly before hand. Will make again.

Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I made this for my husband who never likes anything new and he really enjoyed it! I did like some of the other reviewers said and kicked up the spices, mustard and lime juice a bit for some extra flavor but this is a very good base of a recipe!

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
This was really good. I took the suggestion of sauteing my onion, celery and garlic in olive oil first. I also added 1 cup of white wine and cooked my chicken breasts in the soup for 3 - 4 hours and shredded it in the soup. I think cooking the chicken in the soup just gives everything more flavor. I also added a cup of cubed acorn squash, a little red pepper flakes for some heat and a teaspon of lime juice to brighten the flavor. This was a really good soup. We served it with couscous with golden raisins. We ended up mixing our couscous into our soup bowls and the sweetness of the raisins was really good! I will definitely make this again.

Red Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
This salad was delicious. Next time I will add the bacon just before serving. It did get a little soggy. But other than that we loved it! Thank you!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
These were easy & delicious! My husband is a basic meat & potato man. These were just different enough that I enjoyed them and so did he! I did up the amount of honey to 1 T. And added additional salt. Also finished them under the broiler for about 5 to 10 min. Turning every few min. To just carmelize the honey! Yummmmmmo!

These beets were delicious right out of the oven. I sliced a few and ate them as is and cubed a few, sprinkled with crumbled goat cheese and toasted walnuts. Great salad!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
These are pretty good. I did make some changes. Sauteed my onions with garlic before adding and used turkey and ground pork. Replaced the bread crumbs with an egg because I am a low carber. Delish!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
These were pretty tasty BUT you do have to be very careful with the bacon on the grill. The flat will flame up on you fast!
