Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
I've made this recipe several times and have loved it each time. The first time, I put it over jasmine rice. The last two times I followed other's suggestions and dredged the chicken in flour before putting in the pan. I doubled the sauce part of the recipe but will half the does siracha as it was very spicy, but good. I took about half of the sauce before cooking and added some hot and sweet mustard and some sesame oil, salt and pepper and a little vinegar to make a vinaigrette. We served the chicken on salad with mandarin oranges, honey almonds, water chestnuts and topped with the dressing. It was fantastic!!!

Campbell's® Swiss Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
I've been making this recipe for years and always serve it as a side to Chicken Parisian Crepes that I make. I love the addition of the sour cream to make it richer. For those who do not like swiss cheese, I've made it with muenster, but swiss is my favorite. To make things cook more quickly (and avoid crunchy vegetables), I often pre-cook the veggies in the microwave with a little water to speed things up. This is always a hit!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
I loved these rolls with the exception that I need to figure out how to avoid burning the bottom. The first time I made them following the recipe. I was using a dark pan and a gas oven so I thought maybe that was the problem. The second time I made them I added about 2 Tbsp. of honey (fantastic!) and baked them at a lower temperature (350), for less time (7-8 mins) on parchement in an electric oven. I thought for sure that would do the trick, but, they still burned. Next time (and I will make them again) I'll probably try 325 or 300 and watch them even more closely. They really are fantastic, even when I burn them!

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas Verde

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
This recipe was a wonderful comprimise for my mexican loving husband and I. I tend to like more amernicanized mexican food and this was just what I've been looking for. I boiled and then shredded 8 chicken tenderloins and chose to use whole wheat flour tortillas to make it a little healthier. At my husband's suggestion, we made some queso blanco (white mexi cheese, half and half and green chilis) to put over the top. The enchiladas were large and I only ate one as a meal, but we are looking forward to the leftovers.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
I doubled this recipe and used a 9x13 pan. I used penne and turkey sausage because it was on hand and added black and green olives and a can of mushrooms to make it what I like on pizza. My husband and I both loved this and I'll definitely make it again.

Bean and Sausage Rigatoni

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
I ended up using mild italian sausage for this because I couldn't find turkey sausage. I used fresh spinach and sauted it with the sausage because I had it on hand and added some red wine as another user suggested. It was fantastic! My DH raved about it and is already plotting when we can make it again.

Amy's Healthy Fruity

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Delicious. I used greek yogurt for extra protein and added a little honey to cut the tartness of the plain yogurt!

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
We loved these! They were a great compromise between my husband's love of mexican and my love of pasta. I followed some other reviewer's advice and cooked the ground beef with about 2 tablespoons of the Taco Seasoning I from this site, a diced onion and a can of green chilis. I added about 4 oz of cream cheese and followed the shell stuffing directions per recipe. I did put taco sauce on the bottom of the pan and I think it helped keep them moist. I topped them with a mild corn and black bean salsa and cheese and baked covered per directions and then uncovered for about 5 minutes to let the cheese melt. We put sour cream, hot sauce, diced avocado, black olives and diced tomatoes on top and it was delicious. I think you could use whatever you have in your pantry and make this dish a hit!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
This was fantastic! I'd had something similar before, and it was everything I was hoping for. I will say that I don't think the time listed for the recipe takes chopping time into account. I ended up doubling the amount of chips that I made, and because I made sure to only put a single layer on the pan, it took me a couple of hours to make two batches. It was well worth it though. I took the advice of other reviewers and shook them in a big bag with the cinnamon sugar and it seemed to work well. As for the salsa, I made it twice in two days. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly. I tried using my egg slicer for the kiwi and ended up breaking the slicer. I just cut everything by hand, making very tiny pieces because it needs to fit on a chip. It turned out very pretty and everyone at my bookclub loved it and couldn't believe that I made it, especially the chips. The second time I made the salsa, it was just for my husband and I, so it didn't need to be pretty. This time, I just cut up each fruit and pulsed them in the food processor for a few seconds... so much faster!!! I added blackberries and blueberries, and didn't have anymore raspberries, but it seems to be delicious no matter what fruit you add. I will say that the addition of the blackberries kind of muddied the color, so if you are going for presentation, be cautious of that. I love this recipe and will definitely make it again.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
These were fantastic! I used dried cherries instead of cranberries because it was what I had on hand. Next time, I think I might put white chocolate chips in the batter with them to avoid the hassle of dipping them in chocolate. Thanks for the great recipe!

Blooming Onion and Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
The onion part of this turned out really well. I had an onion cutter sitting the basement so we pulled it out and that worked very well. I did follow other's advice and put it in an ice bath for about a half hour. We used our little fryer to fry onion and I started it root side up and switched it to petal side up about half way through. The only part of the recipe that didn't come out so well was the sauce. Note that this does not call for regular horseradish. I put about a tablespoon of regular horseradish in and it was way too strong for out taste. I tried adding more ketchup to mellow out the flavor and it just ended up tasing like cocktail sauce. I would definitely try making this again, but make sure that you have cream horseradish. Thanks for the post!

Buffalo Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I wasn't sure how it would be with all the ranch dressing, but it wasn't too overpowering. I didn't have celery seed so I added a little celery salt (not 2 tsp though). I ended up using cheddar goldfish and pretzel goldsifh and then added sea salt bagel chips as well. This was a nice change from the usual chex mix.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I love this side dish. I've made it as least 3 or 4 times now. If I don't have either fresh parsley of fresh thyme, I've used dried and barely noticed the difference. I think it is better with fresh lemon juice, but I used bottled lemon juice when I don't have lemons on hand. I like my onions cooked, so I cook them in the pan before I add the quinoa. I did notice that the cook time for the quinoa seemed a little short to me. I ended up leaving it on the stove for at least 5 more minutes until it was tender and the quinoa had at least doubled in size. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Green Beans with Almonds and Caramelized Shallots

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
These green beans were great. I love the hint of garlic that the shallots add. I used french cut green beans and steamed them in a pan, although next time I think I'll use steamer bags in the microwave to save time and dishes. I toasted the almonds and they added great flavor. I think next time I'll use more almonds.

Sweet Potato Oranges

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
These were fantastic and eveyone raved about them. I pretty much followed the recipe as this was the first time I had made these, but next time I think I would half the sugar and butter in the sweet potato filling and I think at least half the topping recipe. I made the filling two days before my dinner and then stored it in the refridgerator. On the day of, I cleaned out the oranges and then filled and baked them. It didn't seem like that much work to me at all, especially since you could do a lot of the work beforehand. Thanks for the recipe. I'll definitely make these again.

Key West Penne

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I thought this was delicious and actually easier to make than I expected. We used thawed frozen sea scallops and peeled and deveined shrimp (uncooked) for this dish. I diced everything pretty small per some reviews so I could get a little of everything in every bite. I used fat free half and half to make it a little healtheir and mixed in a couple tablespoons of flour to the half and half before adding it in as I like my sauces pretty thick and creamy. Finally, I added about 4 or 5 leaves of fresh basil at the last minute because I had it on hand in the garden. I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe.... it wouldn't be too hard to have all of the ingredients on hand without making bi-weekly trips to the store. Thanks for the great recipe!

Avocado Feta Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I followed the recipe accept for the items that I didn't have on hand. I used a yellow onion and dried spices in lieu of fresh to save myself a trip to the store. It was delicious, but after tasting a little, I decided to add a little pepper and a small minced jalapeno to give it a little bite. My husband couldn't wait the 6 hours to eat it! We will definitely make this recipe again!

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
These were easy and fantastic! I used mostly walnuts, but also added some almonds and pecans. I also added a dash of allspice and grated in some nutmeg as well to give it a little extra fall flavor. I made them to snack on at work and I'm not sure they are going to make it to the office. I will definitely use this recipe again and again! Update: I thought that these turned out just as intended, but after reading reviews, the sugar on mine is a bit crystalized and powdery. Instead of using the thermometer next time, I'm going to try the cold water/soft ball test to really make sure I get it right. Even if I can't figure out how to make the soft ball stage, I'll still continue making these because they are that good.

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I don't really like peppers as a general rule, but I made this recipe for my husband to use up a wealth of peppers from the garden. The feta cheese caught my eye and it was a welcome addition. He really enjoyed this recipe and I'll definitely make it again. I just ate the filling and it was delicious.
