Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2001
Me and my husband absolutely LOVED this recipé. We loved the cream sauce the best. My husband kept on raving about it and said to make it again very soon. I served this over egg noodles. I didn't have chicken on hand and used pork cutlets and it was just as delicious. I also added garlic and scallions to the pan while cooking the pork (chicken) and also added a clove of crushed garlic to the cream sauce. (I substituted light heavy cream instead of regular heavy cream which didn't seem to make any difference in taste at all). EXCELLENT !!!!!!!!! (it made me look like a chef in the making) :)

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
WOW !!! I made this cake at Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws and it was such a success I think this may be my staple contribution each year. I took someone's suggestion on toasting the pecans in butter before adding it to the cake and instead of margarine, I used unsalted butter (since one person said the cake was somewhat salty). Instead of using whipped cream - I made crumb cake crumbs and baked them on during the last 15 minutes of baking (to make crumbs: use 2 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp cinnamon 1 1/2 stick unsalted butter melted - I mixed them all together with my hands and put them on top of the pecan/pumpkin/cake mixture). The crumbs, buttery pecans, cake mix & pumpkin mixture was so unbelievable (although filling) everyone raved about it !!!! I think next year though I will cut back on the sugar and butter as it is such a sweet cake and rich cake having one sliver is almost too much to eat and there's no room for other desserts ! Thank you for this superb recipe !!! YUMMMM !

Crescent Wrapped Brie

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
This is a great recipe - similar to one that I have been making. The only difference with mine is that I place either (a very good) strawberry or strawberry rhubarb (or other fruit) preserves/jam on top (about 3+ tbs) of the brie before putting the placing inside crescent. [I've also reduced it [the preserves] with some balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan before spooning onto the brie too - this is my favorite]. A crowd pleaser for sure. [Even for non-brie fans]

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
These were so delicious - I probably gained about 3 pounds just from eating them every day (about 2-3). I used store-bought chocolate icing on top since I love peanut butter with chocolate. The only complaint I have is that they were very crumbly (messy) and I stuck to the recipe. They could have been a little more moist too. Maybe I'll try them with oil next time (as that's a secret many bakeries use). Thanks so much - I'll be making them again.

Spicy Stuffed Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
I wasn't a huge fan. I cooked it in my crockpot for 7 hours (low) like someone suggested. It did come out nice and tender, but wasn't thrilled about the flavor of sausage with the chicken. On the other hand, my husband loved it. He suggested I try using something else to stuff it with next time. I did love the sauce though. I used the diced tomatoes (can with oregano, basil, etc.) and for more sauce used Goya tomato sauce (I like the flavor of this sauce). My husband used the sauce on the leftover angel hair (I had as a side with it) and he loved it. I'll try this again, minus the sausage.

Avocado Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2002
I made this recipe for the 4th of July for a few friends and my husband (who isn't a big avocado fan)and everyone loved it and wanted to know what was in it! [It's very addicting too; you can't stop at just a little.] I added a little more garlic powder, cumin and black pepper and used a chunky medium-spiced salsa and it had a great kick to it (but not too much). I'm definately adding this to my party must haves!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I've been craving roasted vegetables and although it's not a 30 minute meal - it was fantastic ! I have to say, I didn't have all of the ingredients (omitting the bell peppers, Yukon potatoes or fresh rosemary, but I did have the rest (and added portabello mushrooms, garlic cloves, shallots & some white onion as well as the red). I also added a little of my homemade (dry) Adobo seasoning & dry Italian seasoning. Loved it & loved the way the house smelled while it was cooking ! Wish I can eat it every day as a side dish to any meat or fish. Yum !

Curried Chicken with Mango Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2004
I liked this recipe a lot since I never cooked with curry before and liked it, and the fact that it was soooo easy to make since it was cooked in one pan. Seeing other reviews, I tried adding a little more flavor to it by sauteing some garlic and shallots in a little oil beforehand. I also covered the chicken in curry and seasonings. I thought the chicken turned out a little tough and next time I will cook it a few minutes shorter than the 20-25 minutes. (I also believe that if the chicken was marinated first and a little more seasonings were added to the rice for a little kick, it would be a little tastier). All in all, it's an easy meal that looks and tastes like you've spent more time on it. Thanks.

Crunch Bar

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
This is too good that you'll want to eat the whole thing yourself ! I made only a couple of changes. Instead of using nuts, I used Rice Krispies (blending them in at the same time as I added the chips). [I used krispies since I wanted my 2 year old to have some.] Next time I'll make a batch with nuts too (as I think it would be less sweet with the nuts on them). I also used light brown sugar instead of regular (not sure what the difference would have been, but that's what I had). I also used Smart Balance 50/50 butter instead of regular butter and it tasted great and possibly a little less fattening. Any suggestions from anyone to make these less sweet? [I also sprayed the pan with Pam and didn't bother with the aluminum]

Rum-Spiked Horchata

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Love it ! I "just" made it and tried it before I put it in the refridgerator and the flavor brings me to my memories of Christmas drinking Coquito (Puerto Rican egg nog). This is far easier to meke and is much lighter - so it's definitely a great summertime drink. I bet the kids would love it (had I not added the rum). Next time will double it and make one virgin and one without.

Grandma's Best Ever Sour Cream Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
This was a very nice change from your basic lasagna. I actually used chorizo sausage as I didn't have pork sausage on hand - so I added a little Sazon (seasoning) to the meat, as well as a few more latin seasonings. I used more meat (as I like it meatier. I'm also going to play around with this and add a little chipotle w/adobo sauce to the sour cream mix for a little smoke/heat next time. Thanks so much for the recipe ! [Don't omit the olives - it adds so much flavor with the beef]

Easy Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
YUM, YUM, YUM !!!! Me and my family loved this ham and we couldn't believe how easy it was to make ! When I mentioned to people that we were making a crock pot ham with a cooked ham, they all thought it would just fall apart (like roast pork or something) - but it didn't. It was just very soft and extremely tasty ! The only changes we made were that we flipped the ham over in the middle of cooking it and didn't add as many cloves (although that's half of what made it taste so good). The ONLY change we'll make the next time we make this is (since we're huge garlic lovers), we'd add whole, cut up and/or crushed garlic cloves all over it. I think that's the only thing that would make this recipe a full 5 stars ! Thanks for this great recipe !

Saucy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2003
Me & my husband loved this recipe! I only made a few changes because of what I had in my fridge at the time. I used portabello mushrooms instead of regular mushrooms, I added onions and fresh minced garlic to the inside of the chicken as well as the sauce and used mozerella cheese instead of swiss since I'm not a big swiss fan. My husband raved about it. We normally wrap chicken up with various things, but the sauce for this recipe was out of this world and definately made the recipe! Thank you.

Ranch Dipped Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
DELICIOUS !!! I made this recipe only because I had leftover jarred creamy ranch dressing in my fridge and also happened to have the (Japanese) Panko breadcrumbs (which I've been meaning to try). I used thin sliced chix breast and cooked for about 18 minutes. I made the dipping sauce & it was very tasty. Overall, I think the combination of the panko breadcrumbs and the ranch dressing is what added that extra something to this chicken finger recipe that stands out. The breadcrumbs made it taste lighter than your usual fingers. I'll definately make this recipe again - it would be a sure hit as an appetizer at a party - although you'd probably eat so many and not have room for a main course ! Thanks for the recipe Hidden Valley !

Coquito

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
Coquito has been a traditional Puerto Rican favorite for the holidays (Christmas and especially New Year's) for many years in my family. It is unbelievable and everyone who tries it loves it. Traditionally, it is made with raw eggs though and I am leary to try cooking it, but maybe I'll try that if I become pregnant again and concerned about raw eggs. Generally, if you are not pregnant, you can just make sure that you buy fresh eggs and make it just 2+ hours ahead of time (and chilling it for 1-2 hours before serving). Thanks for the recipe, I have never seen it with cloves before and may just try adding that to mine next year. (I'll keep that out this year as usual).

Shrimp Linguine Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
Very good and easy to make. Only change I made was add some roasted garlic to it (since I made it the night before and had leftover cloves). Delish !

Honey Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
UGGH ! My husband was in charge of carrots this Thanksgiving and I found this recipe for him. Boy do I wish I used a different one. It was the least eaten thing at Thanksgiving and everyone agreed that we should forego the carrot-making next year and opt for some garlic mashed potatoes instead. We doubled the recipe and not only did it take a ridiculous time to cook, they never glazed ! My husband had to take them and put them in a frying pan to get some sort of cooked-like glaze to them. They shriveled and had no real taste to them. We even used smashed garlic instead of garlic powder and that didn't seem to help. Next time if I had to make carrots, I would NOT use this recipe and maybe opt for a little brown sugar to give the carrots a little taste. Sorry, didn't work for us, maybe others will like it, but we were stuck with a tray of leftovers.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
I love this recipe. Use it all the time except I use Knorr's brand Veggie dip mix envelope instead of the leak soup mix. I'm sure any/all types of additives would be great too. I add water chestnuts to taste as too much some people don't like, but the added crunch really makes it !

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Everyone LOVED this recipe at a recent family brunch. I added (and cubed some) ham steak (although I originally figured I'd use smoked ham) and used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of using milk (although I'd probably try it with milk next time and see how different the taste is). I did not really measure too well when it came to the garlic & herb feta cheese (as I couldn't figure out what 6 ozs was in comparison to the package I had). My husband also accidentally put in all the cheddar cheese instead of saving half after the first 15 minutes of cooking. No one took just one piece ! We used two frozen pie crusts (9 inch and not deep dish) as there was enough for two and all two were gone (or someone took home leftovers). It is a DEFINITE keeper and I'll never make another quiche recipe again after finding this winner. Thanks !

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
I've made this quite a few years now and it's delicious and requested by a few of my relatives. I actually add crumb topping on top of the cake(from a crumbcake recipe I have) and call it Pumpkin Crumb Crunch Cake.
