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 :)

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.

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.

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 :)

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!

Mom's Best Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
YUMMY! I followed the recipe exactly, except just seasoning the porkchops themselves before breading with the cracker mixture. They turned out so good- my fiance who is so picky raved about them! I baked them for 40 mins, flipping once, and they turned out fine & not dry. This recipe is definitely a keeper, thanks!

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 :)

Simple Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
These sloppy joes were so tasty! A great idea when you need dinner done quickly. I followed the recipe exactly, except I scaled it down to 6 servings since I was only using 1 lb of ground beef. So much tastier and less salty than those packaged seasoning mixes. Had it with french fries and it was delish :)

Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
These ribs came out absolutely amazing! I followed the ingredients exactly. I noticed the directions forget to mention to add the brown sugar to the mix for the BBQ sauce, so I just added it. Also, the directions don't say whether to use foil or not. I cooked the ribs for a total of 3 hours, 2 of those hours I covered the pan with foil (I did not use 2 pans like the directions say.) I basted the ribs every half hour (not every 20 minutes) for the first 2 hours, then took the foil off and basted twice in the last hour. The ribs came out so yummy! Don't worry about the sauce looking watery. The last hour in the oven without foil thickened the BBQ sauce up nicely! Ribs were practically falling off the bone when finished. YUM!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
This was so easy to make! I used 3.5 lb of petite roast for pulled pork, and I had this in my slow cooker for 10 hours. By that time the meat was so easy to shred! The pork was so good by itself I almost didn't want to put BBQ sauce on it LOL. So easy and yummy! Def a keeper :)

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.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
I loved this recipe! Simple, quick, and YUMMY!I usually make fried pork chops and this was a great alternative. I recommend using less egg (I had 2 large eggs and still had leftovers). I seasoned the pork chops with garlic powder and oregano. I didn't have parmesan cheese handy so I used shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese instead. I didn't have an oven-proof skillet so I first used a non-stick skillet and then put them in a glass pan covered in foil for the 25 minutes in the oven. Came out moist and delicious! Will definitely make again. Thanks, Elisaw :)

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVEEEE THIS RECIPE!!! I have made this so many times as either a really hearty dip for company with tortilla chips, or I buy shredded lettuce and then put the taco soup on top of it and it's pretty much like a taco salad. The only difference I make in the recipe is using chicken broth in place for the beer. My boyfriend loves when I make this. So simple and delicious!!!!!! :)

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.

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.

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I just made this for dinner tonight and it came out really good! I saw some of the pictures people put up and their gravy looked white and unappetizing. To add color, I used golden mushroom soup instead of the one called for in the recipe. I made sure that when cooking the pork chops in the skillet that one side was really browned and golden and made that "face up" in the baking dish. I also used white wine to deglaze the pan after cooking the pork chops to add flavor and color to the gravy. The soup and deglazing added such a pretty and appetizing color to the gravy! I sliced my potatoes very thin and it still took an hour, so keep checking your potatoes to make sure they're done. With my own tweaks, this recipe was so good and simple! :) Def. a yummy keeper! :)
