Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2014
This was delicious! I made the recipe as written with the addition of salt and lemon pepper sprinkled over the chicken before cooking. I had, pre-portioned, 4oz chicken breasts so I ended up making six of these. Because my chicken breasts were so small, I worried about them popping open and losing all the yummy filling. To fix this, I tooth picked the bacon on one end of the breast and wrapped it around and down the length of the breast and then used another toothpick to secure the other end. It held the breast together nicely. I saw in the reviews that the chicken was dry. I felt that the cooking time was a little long so I did change the way I cooked it. Instead of simply baking the chicken for a specified amount of time, I used my cooking probe to cook the chicken to 165 degrees. Once it reached that temp, I removed the foil and turned on the broiler for about 8 minutes to darken up the tops. It was beautiful! This is a great recipe that also looks very nice.

Chicken in a Pot

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
This recipe was just OK. I followed exactly as stated with the exception of doubling the sauce. Several reviewers have stated that it was bland. I did not think it was bland it was just too common. It almost reminded me of school lunch or hospital cafeteria food. I'm not sure why but my chicken was even a little dry. While we did eat the meal and it wasn't horrible, it also wasn't scrumptious. I will not be making this on again.

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Excellent pumpkin cupcake. It has a nice mild flavor. This recipe is not overpowering with cloves and nutmeg, two spices I am not fond of. It has a great fall taste. The icing is simply scrumptious. I didn't have any Pure Bourbon Vanilla Extract and couldn't find any so I had to use plain pure vanilla extract. I can only imagine the boubon vanilla would make it even better. I may just have to order some online and give it a try. You will not be disappointed in this recipe!

The Big Easy Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
This was AWESOME!!! I pre-chopped my veggies the night before so cooking would be quicker. I accidentally left out the yellow peppers, I found them in the fridge after the dish was complete. I also used the Spicy Jambalaya Mix by accident. I'm SO glad I used the spicy, I think it made the dish!!! I will be making this again. I hope I remember the yellow peppers.

Cajun Paella

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
This was ok. It had a lot of flavor but I felt the flavor was a little off. It just seemed to be missing something. Can't put my finger of what is missing. I might make this again but will use a different Zatarain's mix, maybe the Jambalaya Mix.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I hate when I read a review and the writer states the many changes that were made. However, I made a couple of changes myself. I used beef broth instead of water and added mushrooms. This stew if very yummy. I agree with another reviewer, it should be called Beef Pot Roast Stew. I love the flavors and will make this again with a few more changes. I'd at least double the wine (I use Burgandy for full flavor) and add another 1/2 can of broth. I'd also chop the carrots into smaller pieces. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because it needed the broth versus the water. It would have been too bland without it. While this is a great recipe that I'll make again, it still isn't what I am looking for in a beef stew.

Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
OK...I love salmon and love balsamic vinegar so I thought this would be fabulous. It wasn't. For some reason, the flavors just didn't seem to work together. Not sure why. I can say, it was MUCH better the next day for lunch. I don't think I'll be making this one again.

Balsamic Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Great Recipe!!!! I followed it exactly except I quarted my tomatoes. I just like them smaller. I was really concerned about 2 ounces of fresh basil, but it was fabulous. I eaten it warm and cold and it is great both ways. The recipe says 6 servings but I divided it up into 12 servings. This recipe makes a lot!

Swiss Cheese Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
YUMMY!!!! Of course, I made some changes. I only need half of this recipe so I halfed it. I only used ground beef and I left out the sausage. That way, I wouldn't have half a pound of sausage and ground beef left over. I also only used 8 oz of swiss cheese and I shredded it. I used whole wheat egg noodles and no one knew. It was so good. The whole family loved it. The only thing I would change would be the cooking instructions. I would cover it and cook for 30 min. and uncover it the last 5 min of cooking. My noodles got a little crunchy and dried out during the baking.

Beef with Green Onion

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
OMG! This was SO Yummy. I did make a couple of adjustments. I used White cooking wine instead of sherry because that is what I had on hand. I doubled the sauce and added broccoli. This was very easy and tastey. Don't leave out the oyster sauce. It just makes the recipe.

Strawberry JELL-O® Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
This is a great, easy pie. For years, I've made one similar to this. (water instead of apple juice and sugar-free jello instead of regular jello)Either way, this is a delicious pie. This go around, I used a baked pastry crust instead of graham cracker crust because I happened to have one. Both pie crusts are great. Kids and hubby loved it. Don't forget the whipped cream.

Roxie's Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
These are so good. Not your typical Bran muffin. I used plain flour because that is what I had on hand. I used a granny smith apple and chopped it instead of shreading it. I like the chunks. I also added some chopped pecans. I added extra bananas because my bananas were very small. This is a great tasting, moist recipe. One other thing, fill the muffin cups FULL. This recipe doesn't rise very much.

Pink Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Not sure what went wrong. My milk never truely whipped. It seemed too soft. Once I added the gelatin mixture, it just all becam runny and wouldn't fold together. I did stir it up to combine and refrigerated it. It became and EXTRA SOFT pie, not fully set yet not runny. The taste was fine...nothing to write home about though. I think I'll delete this one from my recipe box.

Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
OMG!!! This is the best! It is time consuming but worth the effort...especially if you double the recipe and freeze a portion for later. I left out the lemongrass...not a big fan of it. Other than that, I followed the directions...except added COOKED egg noodles instead of raw egg noodles. I used the veggies from the stock to make a ham and bean soup with a leftover ham bone and a ripped up ham steak.
