Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I've given this recipe to so many of my friends! I marinate my chicken overnight in the buttermilk mixture. I added cayenne pepper and garlic powder to the breading mixture (I didn't measure, just added by eye) and they fried beautifully. The chicken was very tender and the seasoning was absolutely mouth-watering.

Best Ever Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
My first cobbler ever was a huge hit with this recipe. I used 4C blueberries and added 1/2t cinnamon to both the crust and filling mixtures. Baked up perfectly and gave a my family a whole new respect for blueberries.

Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Really, really good! I couldn't find mostaccioli pasta and substituted penne. I forgot an onion and mushrooms so I just worked without them. It was so easy to make this that I felt like I was missing a step. I love melted mozzarella and this made the perfect meal . My toddler demanded seconds! Next time I'll be sure to get the missing ingredients. This was a very welcome change to spaghetti.

Spicy Maryland Crab Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I chose this recipe as one of the dips for a football party and it was pretty good. The taste was good but a little dry; I think my mistake was putting this into a 9x13 baking dish instead of an 8x8. Next time I will try that, as it really did taste very good and I'm more than willing to make it again.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This was an extremely easy and delicious tilapia meal. I followed other reviewers suggestions and sauteed the garlic and parsley in the butter. I used a little more than the recipe called for because I love garlic. I lined up my fillets and poured the lemon juice over them, followed by the butter blend. My fillets took the full half hour, but I made 6 in a 9x13 pan, slightly overlapping. They were absolutely delicious and I will definitely make again. The only thing I may do differently next time would be to mix the lemon juice with the butter mixture, but just to spread the garlic easier.

Crispy Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
So good!!! I haven't had potato pancakes since I was a teenager and had certainly never made my own, but this recipe was so worth the wait! I changed the recipe to 4 servings but didn't get the egg halo noted by another reviewer. I peeled the potatoes and rinsed well before putting them through the food processor. I dumped them from there into a fine strainer and doused with water and just let it drain out. I skipped the onion. The recipe, for me, actually yielded 6 servings. This one will definitely stay in the rotation!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This was my very first ziti, and I couldn't have asked for a better recipe. I started off by browning the meat with seasoning salt, minced garlic and freshly cracked black pepper. I cut out the onion altogether and used low-fat mozzarella and sour cream. Oh, and I simply sprayed my Pyrex with olive oil spray. Our grater disappeared so I very thinly sliced down a 6 oz block of mozzarella. I layered everything as described in the recipe, making sure to spread the mozzarella strips evenly. Based off another review, I covered the dish prior to putting it in the oven. What I pulled out...I didn't expect. Amazing. I sent some down to my boyfriend's father, the first thing I'd ever cooked for him except dessert and he raved about it. So yes, this recipe will definitely stay in my rotation!!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This version was very good, though I forgot to use the garlic powder. I also used less than a whole onion, chopped very finely (I don't like obvious chunks of onion in my meatloaf). It took a little longer than an hour for my meatloaf to finish cooking, but my family was fine with that. I will definitely make again, only next time I will cut the brown sugar down to 2 1/2T. I'm not big on sugar but my boyfriend loved it, so shaving off a little should be enough to satisfy us both. My 15 month old cleared his plate!

Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
These potatoes were so good! I cut back on the milk a little and added sour cream and butter, and used dried parsley flakes instead of fresh but the potatoes were still very flavorful. Perfection, and I will definitely make again.

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Quick and easy tilapia dish! I didn't use exact measurements; just poured 1/2t garlic salt, sprinkled it over the fillets until I decided there was enough (I don't like a lot of salt and was worried about using in conjunction with the Old Bay). I sprinkled the Old Bay liberally and added a dash of garlic powder (love garlic!). My family of non-fish lovers enjoyed it and I will definitely be making this again.

Pork Chops with Delicious Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I was a little iffy when my boyfriend said he wanted pork chops for Valentine's Day, but I went along with it and dug around for days before finding this recipe. SOOO glad I ignored the negative reviews!!! I made it almost completely according to direction (added fresh minced garlic to the butter), and even after he missed his train and I had to refrigerate and reheat, the chops were excellent. I served with mashed potatoes and sweet corn, and we were beyond happy with our Valentine's meal. In fact, I'm so pleased that I'm making a larger dose for a family dinner tonight!
