Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I halved this recipe for 1 quiche and didn't have ham so just used bacon. I also doubled the amount of mushrooms and onions and used more spinach and fat free sour cream. Recipe still turned out really well. Baked it with Best Ever Pie Crust from this site and it turned out excellent. Will try with only ham next time to try and cut down on the fat content. A family favorite!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
Made it with a Chicken Pot Pie recipe from this site and it came out excellent. It's supposed to yield 2 pie crusts but I just made 1 thicker one and it was still quite good and I think went really well with the recipe since it was a little more moist. I brushed it with egg white - didn't know if that made a difference. I think I'd rather brush it with egg yolk next time. Great recipe! A keeper!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Great recipe! I add more garlic, cilantro and lime juice than the recipe calls for. I also add a bit of cayenne on top along with the paprika. When I mash the avocado I leave it a little chunky as well. Bon appetite!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
Turned out great despite having to make a few changes. I doubled the recipe and realized I only bought 1/2 of the cream so I used 1% milk for the remainder and then thickened it up by adding a tbs of flour and 2 tsps of cornstarch and letting it simmer for about 30 min while stirring every so often. I didn't have any garlic powder but had garlic salt and used that instead. I also didn't have Cajun seasoning so I used 1/2 tsp of garlic salt, 1 tsp of black pepper, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1 tsp of chili powder, a little bit of chili flakes and then added some hot sauce when everything had been mixed in together. Also didn't have any dried basil on hand so used 1.5 tsps of fresh basil which I thought was still great. Despite all of the changes, the pasta still turned out great. Really adaptable and definitely a keeper. Already had requests to make it again for Christmas!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
Excellent excellent recipe! Whole family loved it and even when they were already full, they couldn't stop picking at it! Even the bf who hates vegetables ate a big plateful of it, saying, "it doesn't taste like salad so I like it!". Great balance of sugar and lemon juice. Definitely a keeper, definitely will be serving again. I would probably add another 1/2 cup of cashews and toast them as well to make the taste a little more robust. I would also up the number of pears to 2 and the cheese isn't needed. In fact, I think the addition of the cheese really takes away from its "refreshing" character.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
The great thing about this recipe is that it is so versatile and you can add and omit anything that you want! I decided to take out the sunflower seeds and add more pecans, almonds and rolled oats. I didn't want to add any maple syrup and instead added more honey and it tasted great. I preferred to bake it longer on each side, about 12 minutes, so the nuts were toasted a little bit. I added cranberries in the beginning with the rest of the dry ingredients and it turned out fine. Instead of having to mix in the middle of the baking time, I took a pan out of the oven, placed parchment paper on top, then placed a cookie pan on top and flipped the whole thing so the granola was flipped and I wouldn't have to stir - it worked out great but make sure you have a good grip of both pans or else granola goes flying! Have fun with this recipe and remember, you can't go wrong with the ingredients!

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
Made it for my work and it got rave reviews! I didn't change the recipe and actually liked that it was a little more cakey than brownies are normally. I sprinkled mini chocolate chips all over the top instead of using icing and it turned out fantastic. Will definitely make it again.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2003
Cookies were great but i substituted margarine for the shortening and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon to make up for the cloves! I would recommend dropping them in tablespoon fulls and flattening them a bit first before putting in the oven or else they end up kindy puffy and dinky!!

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2001
Great recipe and you can vary the amount of ingredients as you go along and it'll still taste great. I get the bottled lime juice to cut the time of squeezing limes, I also use whole wheat tortillas to make it a little healthier and season the chicken with salt and pepper before pan fying it. I also used a tip I got from this site for flipping these suckers since my frying pan is about the size of the tortilla shells (about 10"): I put down one tortilla, sprinkle with cheese, put 1/2 to 1/3 of the veggie/chicken filling in, top with another layer of cheese and top with a tortilla. I do this with the heat a little lower than med. When it's ready to flip (I lift an edge to check), I stick a large 10" round plate on top and flip the quesadilla so that the pan ends up on top and the quesadilla on the plate. I then slide the quesadilla back into the pan (of course with the uncooked side down). When that side is ready, I just flip again onto the round plate and cut with a pizza/round cutting knife while the quesadilla is on the plate. So easy!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Followed the recipe as directed and it was a hit. The only changes I made was using turkey sausage and I added half a cup of rice with half a cup of broth and half a cup of water to cook it in and it turned out wonderfully. Bon appetite!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
Great and easy recipe to follow! I liked the addition of soy sauce and worcestshire sauce that other reviewers suggested to give some tang to the meat. I used one egg with egg yolk and lots of panko bread crumbs to bring it all together. I also used dry parsley and it still came out great. I suggest putting some finely grated ginger in as well to give it that extra special touch. This has become a staple recipe for the family this summer!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Great recipe! I also grilled my chicken on the George Foreman grill but I didn't close the lid on the chicken in first 15 min because I didn't want to dry it out. Chicken came out tender and moist which was great! I also doubled the sauce to dip the chicken in and made cajun potatoes to dip. I wouldn't change a single thing about this recipe except that for the steak sauce, use a good hickory smoked BBQ sauce to give it that extra oomph. Bon appetite!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Two words: fantastic and easy. I took the advice of other reviewers and rubbed the chicken on the outside and inside the skin with a mixture of olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. I set the chicken in the slow cooker on a bed of celery, onions and carrots and two cups of stock. Chicken was so tender and flavorful - def a keeper! Bon appetite!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
Great recipe but turned out a little on the dry side. I would recommend doubling the amount of mushrooms, thyme, bay leaves, balsamic vinegar and broth (and letting it simmer for about 18 min rather than 10 at the end). That way, you can cook up some mashed potatoes and lay a piece of chicken on top and then drizzle the sauce on top on the plate. I would also recommend cutting the garlic into quarters so that more of the flavor is absorbed and can also be eaten with the mushrooms and sauce, otherwise the cloves/chunks are little overwhelming. Great recipes and will definitely make it again.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2002
Great recipe! When I was making the batter, I was really afraid it wouldn't turn out as the batter was quite dense and hard to mix but it turned out really well. I increased the amount of blueberries and also added some lemon extract. I didn't taste too much of the lemon so I think I will add lemon zest next time. I didn't add the crumb topping on top as my family doesn't like things too sweet and it turned out well. Thanks for the great recipe!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Everyone gobbled this one up even though this wasn't my fave. I used light cream cheese, extra cloves of roasted garlic and a 19 oz jar of Newman's Alfredo sauce and the family loved it. Will make it again for gatherings.

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Excellent! Used regular organic greek yogurt and added tomato paste and basil like other reviewers suggested and marinated overnight. I then seasoned roughly chopped red onion, mushrooms and green peppers with salt and steak seasoning and skewered them with the chicken and grilled on the BBQ. Turned out fantastic!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
Great coleslaw and I don't usually even like the stuff! To lower the calories, I used low fat mayo and it still tasted great. I took the advice of other reviewers and used celery seed instead of poppy seeds and added a pinch more of salt. I didn't add radishes but I'm sure it would have been tasty as well. Bon appetite!
