Texas Cowboy Stew

Reviewed: May 28, 2013
This recipe was so easy to make & delicious too. For the "salt & pepper to taste" I used 1 TBSP of Goya Adobo & 1 Packet of Goya Sazon Flavor Packet With Coriander & Annatto. I changed the serving size to 5 and this still filled my crock pot to the top! For some heat, I added Cholula Hot Sauce to the adult servings. I will definitely make this again as it was so easy to throw in a crock pot and the whole family enjoyed it :)

Crunchy No-Fry Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
This was a good recipe to try. I liked the easy preparation & crunchy bite. The only change I made was I used egg because the crumbs were not sticking to the chicken with just the broth. I'll make this again!

Puerto Rican Garlic Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
FANTASTIC!!!! The only change I made was I reduced the salt from 1 Tablespoon to 1 TEASPOON. This was excellent!!! I marinated thin steaks for 8 hours and cooked them on the grill. The hubby RAVED how good they were. I never knew something so simple could be so delicious! Definitely a keeper!

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I love this! I'm Puerto Rican & this is authentic. The garlic, peppers, onion, etc that you puree together is called "sofrito" so I always have this blended on hand. (I make batches ahead of time and freeze them into small batches). The only change I make is I usually add some veggies, even if it's small corn on the cobs or just mixed stew veggies. I serve this with white rice and tostones (which are fried plantains). Delicious!! I make this all of the time.

Grown Up Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
This was delicious! The only change I made was I put extra tomato & avocado slices on each sandwich (my preference!) The flavors came together so well! I think next time I'll add a slice of bacon :)

BBQ Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
Very simple recipe. Used KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce based on other reviews. This was a simple recipe & people liked it, but they didn't LOVE it. I still had some leftovers at the end of the party. But for throwing a few ingredients in a crock pot, I was pleased.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
I made this for a Christmas party at work. It was great b/c I made it the night before and brought it to work the next day. I served it with chocolate graham crackers, and people said it was so good & suggested fruit for next time! I would rate this a 4, but it was one of the first dishes gone & I had about 8 people ask me for the recipe, so it's a 5. I didn't see how this could form into a ball b/c it stayed soft, so I served it in a nice bowl & topped with crushed Heath toffee bits & mini chocolate chips. I'm glad I didn't waste my time trying to form it into a ball. ***Only changes I made were I added toffee instead of pecans, and I also added a dash of cinnamon & some mini marshmallows to the mix.

Campbell's Kitchen Chicken Broccoli Divan

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
Really easy recipe for a quick dinner. I finely chopped the cooked broccoli and combined the chicken, broccoli, soup, and milk before adding to the pan. This gave the mixture a chance to "cook" for a few minutes so that it could thicken & not be runny/soupy. Instead of using breadcrumbs, I used crushed up Kellogs Corn Flakes cereal. This added a nice crunch to the top of the mix, which my family loved! Definitely recommend. Served w/ rice to make it more of a meal.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
I found this exact recipe off the back of my Campbell's Cream of Broccoli soup can. The only changes I made was I seasoned the chicken with some salt, garlic powder, pepper, oregano, and added chopped garlic to the pan when cooking the chicken. I then mixed the chicken, finely chopped broccoli, soup, and milk all together which helped de-glaze the pan and give the soup/sauce color. Then added this to a baking dish and sprinkled with the cheese & breadcrumbs. Served with white rice. A great way to get my toddler to eat her veggies! Will definitely make again :) Easy & delish!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This recipe is so simple & delicious- I think I made it once a week! The only change I make is that I saute the butter and garlic together before adding to the fish. I've made this many times & it always comes out fantastic. I usually make this with some black beans & white rice :)

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Easy & Yummy recipe! I loved the simplicity of this recipe! I used breadcrumbs instead of the crushed saltines, and I also added a splash of Worcestershire sauce & added minced garlic to the meatloaf. I also put the brown sugar/ketchup mix on top of the meatloaf instead of the bottom. I loved this! It was my first time making a meatloaf & I was so proud of how it turned out! Thanks for the great recipe! I now have a new way to use ground beef :)

Potato Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
Just made these- they were a great recipe for my leftover mashed potatoes. Next time, I will not add salt. I usually don't mind salt, but between the salt from the cheese & the salt already in the prepared mashed potatoes, these were a bit too salty. This recipe as listed is 4 stars. Very basic & easy. Next time, I will add some garlic or veggies for a yummier potato pancake. Also made these thin & no bigger than a sausage patty. Had no issues with breakage/mess making them this size. Thanks for the recipe!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
Awesome! Used frozen broccoli b/c I found this at the last minute. Also didn't have cashews, but followed everything else exactly. Broccoli was so yummy. Will def make again. (PS: This is coming from someone who could care less about broccoli, so I'm impressed!) Update: I have made this over & over again. I reduce the butter to make it a bit healthier, and it's still delicious! I've also used this sauce on spinach & my 2 year old loves it! Loooove this recipe!

Grilled Rib Eye Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
I used this marinade on rib eye steaks for a Fathers Day dinner I made. The marinade was really yummy & I got a lot of compliments on dinner. Nobody needed steak sauce for their steak. The only changes I made was add a TBSP of vinegar (I always use vinegar when marinating steak) and I substituted a white onion b/c I didn't have a green onion. The steaks were great. Still not as good as going out to a restaurant, but fantastic for being home. Thanks for the great recipe!

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
These potatoes were great! I use the same ingredients when making potatoes, but this helped get them to the right consistency. I found when I did the exact measurements, the potatoes still had a gummy consistency. When I doubled the milk and butter, the potatoes finally came out creamy & fluffy like everyone else raved about. 4 stars b/c I still had to make adjustments. 5 stars when I doubled the milk & butter in the recipe. So fantastic, thank you!

Chicken Scarpariello

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Just made this tonight & it came out excellent. I followed the ingredients exactly, except adding a little bit of flour to thicken the sauce, and I stirred in some chopped spinach for taste/color. Served over ziti noodles. I let the sauce simmer for 20 minutes while the noodles boiled & the garlic bread cooked in the oven. This tasted great & was so easy. My 2 year old loved it. Thanks for the recipe! :) *PS: I attached a photo of my finished product.

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I made this today and it was so yummy! I used it on thick texas toast that I had left over from making french toast. I didn't have parm cheese so I used mozzarella and I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I think that avoided the "salty" taste some were complaining about. Very tasty and a great way to get rid of some old bread. My hubby & 16 month old loved it too. Thanks!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
I love these potatoes! I follow the recipe exactly except bake them at 425° instead of 475° for 30 mins. This is just my preference, but I also added "herbed butter" when the potatoes are done cooking. The herbed butter is 3-4 tbsp of room temperature butter mixed with italian seasoning (the same stuff on these potatoes.) When the potatoes come out of the oven, I put the potatoes in a bowl, mix with the herbed butter, and then serve. They're delicioussss that way & then it's 5 stars. Give it a try- but regardless these are awesome! Thank you.
