Quick Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Loved this! I had a spaghetti squash I've been waiting to use and had a lazy evening tonight and thought it would be perfect. Quickly defrosted 2 chicken breasts in the microwave and was looking for how to prepare them quickly and so they would work good with the spaghetti squash. This baked up unbelievably fast and breast was very juicy and no pink! I glanced at the time after I put them in but sort of spaced out and was a little confused as to when I actually put them in. So... I THINK i baked them 20- 25 mins and when I looked at them, they were nice and golden, and since my squash was not ready, I covered the chicken and it went back in for 5 mins or so. I was really surprised, I cook at home every day and would say I'm a pretty good cook, but I usually cut into chicken and its still pink inside. Today I cut into it just waiting to find pink in there and I was looking so hard that I broke off a big chunk and there was no pink! Also it really bothers me when someone says a recipe is too bland! Everyone has different preferances when it comes to salt, pepper, and spicyness level and it comes almost as a shock to me that someone wouldn't add more of any of those while cooking if they know they prefer more. I know I love all things salty and dont really like sweet, so I salt my food more and reduce the sweet if the recipe calls for it. And I know my husband puts hot sauce on everything, so I know that I put more hot pepper on his food.

Quinoa with Veggies

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
This is my very first time trying quinoa, not even sure how its pronounced. I really loved it and this dish is awesome, quite simple and i used red bell peppers, broccoli, onions, celery, carrots, and garlic. Its a simple dish, nothing too special but since I have never had quinoa I will give it a 5 because it tasted good all together.

Homemade Manti (Traditional Turkish Dumplings)

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
This was perfect! I thought it might not be salty enough and added salt on top of the yogurt but turned out it was too much. Next time I'll follow the recipe exactly. I froze half the manti, will use real soon. My husband is from Kazakhstan and they make manti alot bigger and with minced pumpkin along with the meat in the filling, and they are steamed not boiled. In my opinion these were a lot better! Loved yogurt and oil.

Sausage Shepherds Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
This has become one of our favorites! So quick and easy and inexpensive to make. Between my husband and I this was gone in one day which I didnt expect at all! I did use hot sausage which gave it a perfect kick, definately recommend it. And I made my own mashed potatoes. Also since I didnt have gravy on hand I had to improvise. I dissolved a cube of chicken bullion in some warm water and slowly added flour while whisking. Worked out just fine and the taste was awesome. Definately try this recipe!

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
This recipe is awesome. I am an experienced cook and I can always tell by the ingredient list whether or not the recipe will be bland to my taste and add or subtract as I see fit. I used 2 chicken breasts, doubled the flour mix but had to throw some out at the end, probably should have done 1 1/2 recipe instead of doubling. That said, I loved this recipe and this is the second time I made it. I fried the chicken last time but since my brother was staying over and requested fries, which I deep fried, I decided to bake the chicken this time so it would be in the oven at the same time that the fries were cooking. It was still very good and everyone was happy. Try it! Oh and I did half the chicken with bbq sauce with a bit of melted butter mixed in, everyone liked those as well (I used sriracha hot sauce for the buffalo chicken so it was nice to have something not as spicy)

Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
My grandma, mom, and now myself, have been doing this for a very long time. If you keep the boiling water above the level of the can, and do not cover with a lid, you will not have a can explode. We only do it for 2 hours or so and it turns out wonderful.

Easy As Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
Thanks for the recipe! I didnt follow exactly because I didnt have everything called for and also just to suit our tastes. I'm rating it a 5 because I'm sure it would taste just as good if followed to the T, and it is also a good idea and a good base recipe if you're picky :) I used frozen peas, fresh carrots and garlic and potatoes and microwaved covered with a little water about 5 minutes to steam all the veggies. Didn't have thyme, used 21 seasoning blend and eyeballed it. had about 1/2 cup leftover turkey gravy which my mom made for thanksgiving, used that, about 1/2 cup vegetable broth and 1 cup milk for the sauce and added flour till thickened. I also used the butter, juices and bits scraped from the pan I used to cook the chicken instead of using the 2tb butter. It was so so good! My husband who isnt crazy about chicken, loved it so much, he ate half of the pie! One more thing, I didnt bother with the cutting and weaving the crust. I just baked it till barely browning on sides and then laid it over the top of the dish with the corners hanging over the sides. Looked great that way too. Sorry for not rating the original recipe but i will try it that way too, it will be great!

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I thought I rated this but couldnt find my review! This is the best ever! So moist and flavorful. I used garlic salt for the salt to give it extra flavor and I think I followed everything else exactly as written but didn't add as much sugar to the ketchup mixture. And it was sweet and very yummy that way. Thanks for a great recipe, I posted a pic as well.

Brookville Hotel Cream-Style Corn

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
I liked this. Blend a little with an emersion(sp?) blender if you want it a bit more creamy, that's my favorite way to do it. I use this in recipes which call for canned creamed corn and it makes everything taste better.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I dont like to rate a recipe when I didnt follow it exactly but I cant not rate this! Just because I hope someone with my taste takes the time to read the reviews and stumbles upon mine. And I know people with a taste opposite of mine love this recipe as it is written. All I did was substitute mayonaise for the miracle whip. And it was really sweet but a tad not tangy enough for my taste. Also I didnt have bagged coleslaw mix so I used half a cabbage and shredded a big carrot, and used a bit more onion because hubby loves it. This was just delicious the way I made it! Actually reminds me more of the salad dressing they use at teriyaki joints. I always have loved that dressing but couldn't find it anywhere for a long time. This wasn't tangy enough to taste to me like coleslaw usually does. None the less, I love this so much! And I made this last minute while waiting for ribs to be done and refrigirated the coleslaw for about 5 minutes and it was great! The sugar melted and some liquid came out. Amazing! And I dont say that unless it is absolutely great. Try it! If you like sweet, sub mayo for the miracle whip, if you like it super super sweet, follow the recipe to the T.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
This is awesome! I wish I could have the first review. I think i put a bit more chicken and used franks hot buffalo sauce. Plus I added potatoes and fried chicken in olive oil and hot sauce and then shredded and added to the rest of ingredients. I think i only used 4 cups milk like others said, but this is amazing! I love it, you're a genius!!!

Best Stovetop BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I am not sure what my ribs weighed but i used 6 instead of 4 and did 1 1/2 the recipe for the sauce. It turned out really good. Not falling off the bone but really soft and I also cooked a bit longer, about an hour and 15 mins. All in all, very good. We usually dont eat pork in my family and this is the first time I made pork, and only because this sounded so good. I froze the extra juices to make gravy another night. Thanks for the great recipe!

Cheese Onion Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
This sounds good, havent tried it. I just read the directions and some reviews and want to leave some advise. I make something similar but different :) And healthier too. I mix together shredded mozzarella, fresh finely chopped onion and a raw egg, this holds it together and is healthier than the mayo, i add a little salt and pepper to taste. I then spread the mixture onto the bread slices. Heat butter or oil in skillet and when hot, add the slices, topping side down and cook till golden on bottom, then carefully turn and brown other side. They taste great and the onion stays a bit crunchy and flavorful, also the egg adds a good flavor. I will try the recipe as written and please try mine, its really good. I havent made it in a while and completely forgot about it but this reminded me to make it again. Please leave feedback if you try it my way!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Make this! I messed it up but still turned out perfect! I am just shocked I made them! They look amazing and smell yummy. I needed alot so make a double batch but didnt realize it was too much for my bread machine. It got mixed and the rising cycle started, I looked and it wasnt mixed at all, the yeast was still on top! I wanted to save it, so I dumped the whole thing on the counter and mixed it by hand. Then heated the oven for about half minute and turned it off, put the dough in a bowl, covered with towel and stuck it in the warm oven for about an hour. Luckily it doubled in size and I was able to go ahead with the rest of the directions! I did use half whole wheat flour and half white as my sister is very health concious. And used olive oil instead of vegetable, because that's all I had. They are so easy and amazing that I am making a 3rd batch tomorrow even though we only ate one pita from the 2 batches I made today. I'm excited.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I agree with the people who said its unfair to rate a recipe when you changed alot of it. Even if you use garlic powder instead of the garlic you get a different result! I didnt try the recipe as written just because I was in a hurry and only used 3 bone in, skin on thighs. Also didnt have parsley, used 21 season mix. And I think too much garlic because it burned and there was a thick black coating on top. Another thing, had only dark soy sauce so I used less. I am sure If I followed recipe exactly it would have been perfect! Thanks alot!

Tortilla Rollups I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
These were delish! I used 1/4 of the recipe just for me and hubby and used half the cream cheese and about half cup sharp cheddar and a dash of garlic salt. Also I used smaller tortillas I think 8 inch. They turned out tiny, very cute and better than I expected. I recommend to just add what you like to the filling to suit your needs, and freeze for a few mins if its too soft. I love this and will make again for sure!

Spicy Oil and Vinegar Bread Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
Okay I just made this. Since my husband is at the store I asked him to buy and underbaked french bread (so i can make it nice and hot and crispy in the oven) and try this recipe. Hubby loves oil and balsamic vinegar ever since we had it at a very nice Italian restaurant on our honeymoon 3 years ago. He always asks me to buy some. The one he had at the restaurant was just simple oil and vinegar. He will love this with all the garlic and herbs. I tried doing it the way another reviewer said and added butter and microwaved it for a min. It got a little cloudy. I dont like it like that. I put it in the freezer for a few minutes and took off a weird colored stuff on top afterwards. But I tasted it while warm and i think it will be perfect when it is cold.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
These were good. I served with ribs and a green salad. Was perfect together. It wasnt what I expected however, but that is only because of my Russian heritage. Most Slavic weddings we go to serve these delicious potatoes. They are cubed and in a really creamy, a little garlicky sauce which I have been trying to find the recipe for. When I saw this recipe and the picture of it, I was sure this was it. It was not. But I really like this recipe a lot and will definately make again, thanks a bunch!

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I gave this 5 stars because it is really good easy and inexpensive. I put the whole amount of cayenne pepper and it was good but it lacked flavor, I think next time I will double the amount of the pepper and maybe add onion or eggplant. But thanks! I would have never thought to combine these ingredients if I didnt read this.
