Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This recipe is now a regular in our house. Usually I make it with thin pork chops, double the sauce and serve with linguine or other pasta. I do find the sauce a bit bland as written though so I add more dill and a little extra s&p to it to bring the flavors through. I also sometimes substitute chopped green olives for the capers (no extra spices). I never would have thought of it had i not been making this and realized i'd run out of capers! Now my family asks for 'that olive cream sauce'. Thanks!

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This came out really well! I was surprised at how well the breading on the chicken came out. I tripled the recipe for a larger family, and cause I had a lot of chicken to use up. I had only a couple pieces of chicken left for my lunch the next day! I tripled EVERYTHING. If you do that, you do NOT need to triple the sauce. Maybe 1 1/2 times. I have a big chinese food restaurant container left in my fridge. My husband said it wasn't exactly like restaurant style but it was very good. I think the only thing I did differently was I didn't have chlli paste so I used a chili sauce. It worked fine though. Thanks!

Pork Chalupas

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Family liked it, but way too much salt for us. I hesitated to put the 2 T but thought maybe I was just being conservative. Next time I would reduce by half at least. We also used less peppers and used dried black beans instead of pinto because that's what I had on hand. The meat and beans came out very well. This does make ALOT! 4 adults eating and enough leftovers for a casserole the next day! We will make it again.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
I made this recipe as stated, except I used all chicken legs instead of the whole chicken, left out the cayenne cause it was already pretty spicy, and I added a little red curry paste at the end because I didn't think it had quite enough curry flavor. I probably should have listened to the other reviews that said to cut back on the cinnamon. While I was cooking, my husband asked why the whole house smelled like cinammon! I thought nothing of it, since cinammon is pretty aromatic, but in the finished product it was definately a little overpowering. Next time i'll probably try adding a can of coconut milk to mellow the spice and thicken the mix a little bit. Oh yeah and only use like half the cinnamon!

Soft Sandwich Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Made these for BBQ sandwiches. Instead of cutting I rolled them into balls before letting them rise. They were good. Soft, a little bit sweet, a little yeasty tasting, but not overwhelmingly so. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Very good! Made for Superbowl Sunday and it was a great hit with everyone! I am originally from New York, so this wasn't a normal recipe for me, but it got a great big thumbs up from the only born and bred Carolina Girl at my party! I served with homeade cole slaw and some rolls (also from this site). The leftovers tasted great the next day!

Crystal's Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I have made this recipe 3 times so far. One batch my husband gobbled up in no time flat, and the others I brought to Thanksgiving dinner. They are VERY moist! They have a cake like texture, very springy. The next day they are even more moist! They get a little sticky. I wasn't sure I was a fan at first, it's a different texture for a cookie, I thought maybe I did something wrong (hence making them 3 times!) but now i'm sold. I do like cake, lol. Thanks!

Sparky's Doggie Treats

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
My dog loves peanut butter, so I was pretty sure she'd like these. I didn't have corn flour either so, like another reviewer, I subbed another cup of all purpose. Also, I have a larger dog, so I cut them larger into cute dog bone shapes. Oh boy did she go NUTS! She must think it's her birthday! Thanks for the recipe!
