Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
This is a great idea for stuffed chicken breast. After reading many reviews, I made some modifications so I would end up with the right amount of cheese mixture and lots of flavor. I used about half of the ricotta cheese and kept the mozzarella the same (I really like mozzarella). I really love garlic so I used three cloves and added some fresh chopped basil to my cheese mixture. I sautéed a small clove of garlic (minced) in some organic extra virgin olive oil and organic butter and chopped organic Bella mushrooms. After a few minutes I added my fresh chopped organic spinach with a few dashes of organic nutmeg. Let that sit on the heat for just a few minutes. Let it cool than added it to my cheese mixture. I added a bit of salt and fresh ground pepper and a mixture of dried onions, red bell peppers, sundried tomatoes, and leeks for extra flavor. The aroma was delicious. I borrowed CHEFBAUER’s idea of cutting a pocket into the thickest part of the breast and piped in the cheese mixture. I think this method is more work but the presentation is much nicer than the toothpick option. I covered and baked according to the recipe then added my remaining mozzarella the last fifteen minutes. Delicious! I will definitely make this again and will try the other method of flattening the breast and rolling the mixture in the breast.

Arroz con Leche

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
I grew up with this dish. So I had great expectations. I followed this recipe to a tee. Don’t know if there is a difference between the Cuban version and the Mexican version but this dish was a bit too sweet for my taste. I'll share my beloved mother’s recipe for those who prefer a mildly sweet rice dessert.

Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Delicious and easy! My husband and teenager loved it! I used all the ingredients the recipe called for but I didn't have onion powder on hand so I used dried minced onions. My family isn't a fan of ginger but I still kept it in the recipe and they loved it. I cooked it in my Dutch oven for just over an hour and it came out tender. I made extra sauce as many reviewers recommended it. I'm so glad I did. I can't wait to make this again. Thanks Kathy!

Carrie's Garlic Pesto Tuna Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
I was expecting this to turn out better. I love tuna and pesto but marrying them in this dish didn't seem all that impressive. I used grape tomatoes and that seemed to pick up the pesto flavor and brought this dish to two stars.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This was my first attempt at making Alfredo Sauce and it turned out great! I loved the simplicity and taste. I did make just a few changes. I used evaporated milk instead of heavy whipping cream and I tripled the garlic. I love garlic, but was surprised my family couldn't taste the garlic. I didn't have fresh parsley on hand so I used dry parsley. I added my shredded parmesan cheese to the sauce bit by bit as it melted, to prevent clumping. I also added sautéed chopped mushrooms to the sauce. I poured this over farfalle pasta, and cooked broccoli florets, asparagus tips, carrots and chicken. It was very tasty and my family still got their veggies. My family gives this a 4.5!

Broccoli with Lemon Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
What a nice sauce! The flavors went so well together. I took the advice of others and steamed my fresh broccoli for just a few minutes till bright green. I used a fresh lemon and organic unsalted butter, coarse salt, fresh ground pepper and just two dashes of cayenne pepper (less than 1/8) as this spice can pack a lot of kick. I had some extra minced garlic so I added just a touch of it to the lemon butter mixture. It was right on. I poured the sauce over the broccoli. I will definitely make this sauce again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Ground Turkey Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I made this tonight for my family and it was a hit. I did incorporate some suggestions other reviewers had. I added Italian seasoning to the boiling pasta for more flavor. Instead of tomato sauce, I used Italian style diced tomatoes (puréed). For the milk/cheese mixture, I used 1/2 cup of milk instead of dry milk powder and water. I also added extra garlic, and a splash of Italian seasoning, and Romano Cheese. Overall, it was quite tasty. This dish is very easy to make. I will be making this again, but will add pepper flakes or cayenne pepper for a little kick.
