Chicken Sandwiches with Zang

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Since we don't have a grill, I made this in a skillet. I coated the skillet with Pam, put seasonings on the chicken and then seared it on both sides. Then I started spreading BBQ sauce on it every time I flipped it - about every 5-6 minutes. I did kinda eye the seasonings instead of measuring them out and used a "bold" BBQ sauce. It took about 18 minutes on medium heat in my skillet to cook through using medium-sized chicken breasts. I toasted the buns in the oven for a few minutes, then put on the chicken and cheese (used provolone because that was all I had) and put back in the oven for about 2 minutes until the cheese melted. Then I topped with the onions and mushrooms (didn't use bell peppers because we don't like them and I didn't have them). Hubby and I both really enjoyed this sandwich. We served it with homemade fries and cut up apples.

Raisin Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I thought this was excellent! Per other reviews, I put in double the cinnamon and about 1 1/2 cups apples. It was quite good. They're good cold and warm. I also used about 1/8 cup applesauce and 1/8 cup oil to cut down on some more fat and calories. Very good. I would highly recommend trying this recipe!

Butter Dip Breadsticks

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
We really liked these. I did add 1/2 cup parmesan cheese to the batter. I also added some garlic powder to the butter and sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top of the breadsticks before baking. I did cut into 1 inch strips instead of 1/2 inch strips. It took about 15 minutes for these to cook. I also twisted the breadsticks; it made them look very pretty! All in all, it was fairly easy, very good tasting and pretty presentation. I will plan on making these next time I want breadsticks.

Crunches

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
This is the recipe that one of my friend's moms used to make for us when she had a sleepover. We lived in Arkansas at the time and these were always kept in the refrigerator for us to eat.

Taco Turkey Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I made this for lunches for a week. I used light sour cream and homemade taco seasoning. I did add lettuce and tomatoes. It was very good. Hubby also really liked these. They are quite filling.

Banana Berry Smoothie III

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This was pretty good. Nothing spectacular, but it was a good smoothie. I had it instead of dessert one night- definitely a healthy and tasty choice! The serving size for this recipe fit into a small glass.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
I made these for Valentine's Day. They were quite easy and extremely tasty! I made the batter earlier on in the day and we just put them in muffin cups and stuck them in the oven when we were ready for dessert. They are also good warmed up later in the microwave. I served them with raspberries coated in sugar and Cool Whip. I pretty much followed the recipe and it was great.

Orange Glorious I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This is very good. I made it as the recipe called for and it was a little more liquidy than I liked. Next time I'll reduce the liquid and increase the ice cubes. Overall a very good flavor.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I really loved this one. I pretty much followed the recipe- just adjusting it slightly to make it healthier. I piled on the veggies. Then I used reduced fat pesto and reduced fat feta cheese. I used a little less than what was called for for the pesto and olive oil. It was an easy meal to size down for 1 person and it was very filling. I will definitely be making this again soon- maybe even next week!

Wisconsin Slow Cooker Brats

These were pretty good. I followed the directions except that I didn't grill them at the end- I just served them as is from the slow cooker.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
These are AWESOME!! I did add 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon and a sprinkle of nutmeg to the batter. I also increased the cinnamon in the crumb topping as well. (We really like cinnamon!) They came out perfect- moist, but not too moist and with a great flavor!

Grilled Chicken and Angel Hair Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Made 1/2 recipe. Cooked grilled chicken with garlic powder. Used about 1/4 cup Buttoni reduced fat pesto with another spoonful - it was just about the right amount and lowered the fat of the dish. Otherwise, made it according to the directions. It was very good and very easy.

Butterfinger Chunkies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
These were quite good. I'm not a big fan of normal peanut butter cookies, but these are NOT your normal. If you like butterfingers and cookies, then you'll like these. I pretty much followed the recipe, but I did refrigerate the dough before baking. They came out nice and soft... perfectly yummy!

Zesty Chicken Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I don't think there's anything wrong with this recipe. It was just a little too out there for my taste. Hubby liked it just fine though. So, if you want a different twist on meatloaf, then give it a try... but if you're a traditionalist with meatloaf, then realize that and pass on this recipe.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
We really liked this. I used panko bread crumbs. Next time I think I will cook it in the oven for about 5 minutes less than the recipe stated. It was quite good! So far it's one of my favorite pork chop recipes!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I really love this recipe. I had been planning on trying it for awhile, but I just now got around to it. It is really good. I did cook it for over 16 hours, but less probably would have been alright. I used regular sea salt (I went to three stores even specialty ones and I couldn't find hawaiian). We served it as sandwiches with some BBQ sauce on top. I prefer this recipe over typical pulled pork recipes where the pork sits in the BBQ sauce. This has a great flavor even without BBQ sauce and then you can just add the amount that you want instead of having it drenched. I definitely recommend this recipe!
