Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
Very easy and tasty. Marinated chicken in soy sauce, ginger, hoison and dash of chili powder. Added Tbs oyster sauce as recommended. Used 1/2 c. chicken stock with a bit of cornstarch to thicken sauce a bit. Will definitely make again with minor alterations.

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2014
So yummy and so easy!! Did not have chili paste; used chili powder. After reading several other reviews, also added about 4 Tbs. cream cheese, and 1/4 cup milk. Made it very creamy and silky. Hubby loved this and I will be making it again soon!!

Awesome Baked Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
Simple and delicious! Followed basic recipe, but didn't have shallots, so I sautéed finely minced red onion in the pan melting the butter. No nutmeg on hand and didn't miss it. Stirred in a couple of tablespoons of crumb mixture into scallops before covering with remainder of crumbs. Came out tender and juicy. Yum!!

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Served this last night for a New Years Eve dinner party. Everyone raved about my "restaurant quality" meal! Personally, I found the lemon flavor a bit overwhelming; would cut back on lemon slices next time. This one is definitely a keeper.

Flat Iron Steak with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
WOW! The balsamic reduction is to die for! When you let it simmer and reduce by half, the taste is wonderful and even slightly sweet. It took a total of 10-15 minutes. I only had one 1 lb. steak, but made the full recipe for the sauce and had more than enough. Served with baked potatoes and steamed broccoli. Can't wait to make it again!

Seared Salmon with Balsamic Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Easy and yummy quick way to prepare salmon. I reduced the lemon juice by half, and added an equal amount of orange juice. Served with creamy mashed potatoes and a green salad. Can't wait to make it again!

Crystal's Chicken Saltimbocca

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
After reading several reviews I made a few alterations to this recipe, but have to give credit to Crystal for providing the basis of a delicious recipe! I layered prosciutto, provolone and fresh spinach leaves on the pounded chicken breasts and add some chopped sage leaves; rolled them up and secured with toothpicks. I then browned them in 2 tbs. olive oil. Added a little salt and fresh ground pepper. When they were evenly browned on all sides I took them out of the pan and put them in a baking dish. I added a cup of white wine to the pan and let it reduce for about 10 minutes. I then added the wine to the baking dish and put it in a 350 oven for about 25 minutes. Everyone raved at this dish! Restaurant quality! I can't wait to make it again --so delicious!!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
Great recipe with bakery store results. The best looking muffins I've ever made. I took some of the advise of other reviewers and used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. I did not add extra sugar, and I definitely should have. I followed the recipe exactly (except for sugars) and found them to be a bit bland/ although the texture is perfect. I like a sweeter muffin. Will definitely make these again and add another 1/2 cup of sugar. This recipe made 6 jumbo muffins and a 8"x4" loaf. Golden brown on the outside - just beautiful!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
Yummy and moist... goes great with hot cup of coffee. I made a couple of minor adjustments: used half white sugar and half brown sugar; used vegetable oil instead of butter, added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon to batter. Used jumbo muffin tin and got 6 huge muffins. Will definitely make these again.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
These are the first scones I've ever made and I'll never need another recipe! I used my mini food processer to grate the butter, then added it to the dry mix. I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the mix and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Mixed everything as directed and sprinkled the top with cinnamon and sugar mixture before baking. WOW! This is a true winner. Easy and delicious. I'll be trying other variations soon. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

Bran Muffins II

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
These were good, but I was expecting a darker, more "bran" type of muffin. I'll keep on looking here, but I think I need one that has more than just bran flakes in it. I found that these were very dense too.

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
So yummy!! After reading several other reviews I decided to increase the amount of chocolate chips (doubled it), and I left out the sugar completely. I'm a really chocoholic, so I decided to make this a "chocolate chocolate banana bread pudding" by adding 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa when mixing the wet ingredients. I also added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I mashed the bananas. Results were fantastic! Everyone loved this and I will definitely be making it again -- the chocolate-chocolate version of course! I

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I'm a believer! I made this for dinner tonight and can't believe how moist the turkey was. I used a 3 1/2 lb. bone-in breast and cooked it on high for 3 hours. It was just perfect. I added a few tablespoons of water to the bottom of the pot. Rubbed the turkey with 1/2 pkg of onion soup mix, closed the cover and walked away! Will defintely make this again.

Basic Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
This recipe was easy but following the recipe gives less than desirable results. I followed others' suggestions and added the carmelized onions and garlic half way through the cooking. I had to cook this another 4 minutes to get it soft enough, and I would have cooked it another 2 or 3 with additional liquid if I had the time. Extra cheese for us too!
