Crescent Chicken Bundles

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
I served these to my husband's family for Mother's Day. Very tasty and lovely looking, too. I used reduced fat crescent rolls and neufchatel cheese, which is like cream cheese, but has 1/3 less fat. I omitted the chives, and instead added 2 Tbs. of minced white onion, 2 Tbs. chopped pimento, 2 cloves of minced garlic, and a bit of fresh chopped parsley to the filling. I added 4 Tbs. of milk instead of 2. I topped the crescent bundles with melted butter, crutons, and some of the parsley before baking. They were very flavorful, and I think unsing the neufchatel cheese made it better and less rich.

B's Cordon Bleu Bundles

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Then I sauted them in olive oil and added salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, basil and oregano. I laid out the crescent rolls, put on three slices of brie cheese, ripped up the spinach and put that on, diced up some deli ham and added that to the pile, and finally added the sauted chicken. When closing the crescent rolls, make sure all seams are pinched together. Then pick up opposite corners and pinch them together, carefully pinching the seams so that there are no open cracks. I kept the seam sides up while baking. I also brushed some melted butter on the tops. These turned out beautifully. The only thing I'll change when making again is to omit the salt. The ham makes it salty enough.

Phyllo Chicken Packets

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
I modified this a little. Instead of mayo I used cream of mushroom/cream of chicken soup. I added fresh minced garlic and chopped red onion to that along with salt, pepper, about half the ammount of lemon juice, and the taragon. I cut up the chicken and mixed it in. I also mixed in some chopped up ham. (I think mushrooms would be good in there as well.) I used two layers of phyllo dough, which I sprayed with cooking spray as others have suggested. Before baking, I sprayed the packets with the cooking spray, added the parmesean cheese to the tops and also sprinkled some more taragon on top for color. These turned out amazingly! I will make these again and again!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
This is a wonderful recipe that I make for company. To make the coating crunchier, I omit the bread crumbs and just use the chopped pecans (walnuts work too) and parsley. Ten minutes in the oven wan't long enough the first time I made this. Even though the salmon filllets were not more than an inch thick, they were very large. Make sure to test the thickest part with a fork before serving. I serve this with asparagus and whole grain & wild rice.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
This is the best lasagna recipe! I soak the noodles as others have suggested so they don't have to be boiled. I always put it together the day before so I don't have to cook the sauce on the stove. I use fresh basil, which is so much better than dried. I add a dash of nutmeg to the ricotta mixture. I've brought it along with me on family get-a-ways and just baked it there. I use the sauce recipe for speghetti also.

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
I mixed this up and brought in on a little romantic picnic with my husband. We just spooned the mixture onto slices of french bread I had cut up. We both thought it was very tasty! We had wine with it, too, and a few other little snacks. (I halved the recipe and added some red onion to it.) Later- I make this for my husband and I often when we want a light supper. It is best when you toast the bread, then spread on the tomato mixture (except leave out the parm cheese, and put in on top of the tomato mixture at the end) then toast it again as the recipe says. A glass of red wine goes nicely with this!

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I had tried to make Thai green curry chicken before, because it's my favorite dish at my favorite restaurant. I had been unsuccessful, until this recipe. This tasted almost exactly like the one in the restaurant! I did add some red bell pepper and some bamboo shoots as well. I'm going to make it again in a few days for my friend who also loves Thai food.
