Baked Chicken Broccoli and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I've made this recipe twice now...the first time I pretty much followed the recipe except adding broccoli to the rice mixture and adding breadcrumbs to the chicken breasts. This time, I took some advice from several other reviewers. I doubled the amount of rice and used 1 can of cream of mushroom and 1 can of cream of chicken soup. I also dissolved 2 chicken boullion cubes in the 2 cups of water before I mixed it with the soup and rice. I cooked 3/4 of a bag of frozen broccoli spears in the microwave and added it to the rice misture. I sprinkled a little garlic salt on the chicken, and covered it in a thin layer of bread crumbs. I like it before...but I really like it now. The cream of mushroom soup gave it a little more flavor and the chicken breast is sooo moist. I can never get chicken to turn out this moust. Love it!

Moist N Tender Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
I've made these twice now...both times I took them out of the crockpot after they cooked a while and place them on a foil lined, lightly sprayed cookie sheet, brushed them with the sauce from the crockpot and put them in the oven to crisp up a little. The second time, they weren't quite done cooking when I placed them in the oven, so they didn't fall apart quite so easily while eating them. My very picky 13 yr. old son loves them and asks for them all the time. I don't use chili sauce as my base, but Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce...still comes out great! A 4 lb. pkg. of wings will cook in this sauce in 3-4 hours in a crockpot on high. Very tender and flavorful...I'll be making these wings often.

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
This is an a very nice easy recipe. I searched specifically for a cookie without eggs (I didn't have any!) and this was among the results. I didn't have pecans on hand so I used almonds and it was just as well. I halved this recipe thinking I would get 2 1/2 dozen. As it turns out, I only got 20 cookies out of it. I'll make the full recipe next time and count on 40 cookies. I baked them for 15 minutes and they were perfect, crisp yet light. Thanks for the easy recipe. I think it's going to be my go to cookie when I'm looking for a cookie that's not too sweet!

Polly Welby's Excellent Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Excellent is an understatement. Soooo easy and delicious! I used 8 ounces Baker's brand semisweet chocolate and it was just perfect! Deep chocolate flavor and not too sweet. I put the mousse in single size pre-made graham cracker crusts, chilled and topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. This was a huge hit with the kids and the hubby. This is so easy, I'll be making it quite often!

Greek Lazy Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I made this tonight, and was kind of confused as to how long to bake it. The prep time says one hour, the recipe itself says 1/2 hour. I split the difference and baked it about 45 minutes. I really like the taste of this...I will definately make it again. I tweaked it a little, since I'm a novice, and basically a convenience cook. I used a 10 oz pkg. of frozen chopped spinach (thawed), I used 1.5 tsp of chopped garlic, and my lemon juice came from a bottle :-). It didn't matter, it still tastes great. My fear is that I don't think it will reheat well. I think it will be dry. So I need to figure out what I can add to this to make it a little more moist. All in all, a great, lighter pasta dish. If you don't like a heavy sauce with your pasta, this one's for you!

Tomato 'n' Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I made this recipe *almost* exactly as written. The fresh herbs I bought were basil and oregano (pasta blend) so I used fresh oregano instead of dried and I used Fettucini instead of spaghetti. The only other change was I added a touch of garlic powder to the sauce at the very end, I like garlic and if it weren't so close to being done at that point I would have added fresh garlic. This was amazing! I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great easy recipe!!

Creamy Chocolate Mousse Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
I love this recipe! My soon asks for it All the time. If you really need a chocolate fix use a cup of semi-sweet chips and an Oreo cookie crust, YUM! I've also used a little peppermint extract in the mix for a mint chocolate mousse pie. Thanks for this one, ill be making this for years to come!

Zesty Porcupine Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
Excellente! I made them *almost* exactly as the recipe showed. But I didn't have onion salt, only onion powder, so I added some onion powder and about 1/2 tsp. garlic salt. I also used dried parsley. I'll definitely make again! Will probably bake them next time, then transfer to a pan to simmer. I made a double batch and it was quite tricky turning them to brown on all sides...but the end result was wonderful. I served over white rice. The sauce, as simple as it was, was a nice tangy zip.

JELL-O® Double Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
What a wonderfully easy pie! I changed it up a little bit. I am a chocoholic...so the graham cracker crust just didn't sit well with me. I made an Oreo cookie crust by crushing 18 Oreos and adding melted butter and pressing into the pie plate. I baked it at 350 for 10-15 mins and let it cool before making the filling for this pie. Once the fillings were added, I topped it with 3 broken up Oreos as a garnish (See my picture)...YUM!

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Very good...I made these exactly as the recipe states and they were good. Everybody liked them. I thought that the peanut butter mixture was a tad too sweet. Next time I'll use 5 cups of confectioners sugar and 2 cups of peanut butter and tweak it further if need be. I used other reviewers tips, such as melting the chocolate chips in the microwave, and sticking them back in the freezer when the chocolate is not bonding well any more. I got 57 buckeyes out of this recipe. I think they are much better cold than at room temperature, so I stored mine in the fridge. Excellent recipe as written, but I think I will try to tweak it a little to my taste.

Emily's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
Very good easy recipe. This is the first apple pie I've ever made and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. I used a mix of granny smith and gala apples. Will definitely make again!

Pumpernickel Spinach Dip I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
This is excellent and sooo easy! I made a double batch. Bringing it to an office luncheon tomorrow. TIP: I found the dill mix in the salad dressing aisle. Much better than my usual spinach dip recipe.

Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
OMG!!! This is the BEST mac and cheese I've ever made. I only veered slightly from the original recipe. I used 12 slices of white processed american cheese (singles), I left out the onions due to my son's aversion to them, added about a 1/2 tsp. of sea salt and a couple shakes of garlic powder. I also used melted butter/bread crumbs on top. It's nice and creamy with good flavor. The true test though will be if it reheats well. I'll update when I reheat.

'Got Some Crust' Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
THE best Mac and Cheese I've EVER had! I didn't have white pepper so I used black pepper, or tobasco, I used Red Hot buffalo sauce...it was delish! I can see me making this often. Can't wait to see how the leftovers reheat. Mmmmm...thanks!

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Very good. These complimented the Chicken Hurry recipe (from allrecipes.com) quite nicely. I didn't think they were at all labor intensive. The cook pretty quickly. I'll make these again...was considering splitting the flour and use half cornmeal and half flour...I'll try that one of these days when I'm looking a kitchen adventure..lol I'd also like to try it with cinnamon and shredded apples...very good easy recipe, will make it again!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Although this recipe was very chocolatey and I could tell it would be excellent if made as the recipe states...I am trying to bake a little healthier and replaced the sugar with granulated Splenda. The cookies didn't really spread/rise much and after they were cooled they were pretty dry, but still edible. I'll definitely try this one again with real sugar, I can tell the potential was there for this to be an excellent chocoholic's dream cookie!

Chicken Hurry

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This was pretty good. I only made minor changes. I used 6 chicken drumsticks and doubled all the ingredients in the sauce except the onion soup mix...I dipped in and gave it a taste and it did seem just a tad too sweet, so I added 2 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce. I think that was just what it needed. I cooked it 30 minutes covered and 30 minutes uncovered, and still wasn't done, so I spooned the sauce over it again and gave it another 30 minutes uncovered. Perfect! I will probably make this again because it's so easy and tasty. I wouldn't make it for a dinner party, but definitely something the family wouldn't mind eating occasionally.

Dutch Apple Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
I think I'm in love! This is the moistest cake I've ever had. It has the consistency of a coffee cake, and would be great for breakfast, but I have a feeling it won't last till morning! I made a few changes, but nothing major. I added about 1 cup of grated apple(1 large macintosh apple) and about 2 tsp. of cinnamon to the batter and used brown sugar instead of white sugar for the for the topping. The piece I sampled was still warm when I tried it, can't wait to see how it is once it's cooled completely. I would guess that it will just as wonderful as it was warm. I would give it more stars if possible.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
Excellent! I made this for my sister and her family who needed a good dinner after driving 5 hours to get here. It was a big hit. Everybody liked it. The only substitution I made was using grated parmesan instead of fresh shredded parmesan, and it was still wonderful! The chicken breast was tender and moist and had great flavor. If you're looking for a new spin on the same ol' chicken breast this is quick and delicious! I'll definately be making this again!

Hidden Treasure Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I adapted this to blueberries...I used Berry Blue Jell-o and fresh picked blueberries. It was just OK...this wouldn't be something I would bring regularly to a pot luck or cook out. It tasted good, but it didn't wow me. Maybe it's better with strawberries.
