Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
These work well when using Panko breadcrumbs, and baked on a cookie cooling rack (placed on a baking sheet). They stay nice and crispy. I used a bit of dijon mustard in with my mayo mixture and it gave it a nice flavor. Baking time should be increased to 35 minutes for larger and thicker breasts.

The Best Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
These were very thick, since no liquid was added. My hubby loved them, and while they did have a wonderful taste, I felt there was maybe a bit too much garlic; of course, that could be adjusted by the size of the cloves used. And, per other reviewers, I added some chili powder, and some cayenne (1/4 tsp)and thought the additions were a bit overpowering; maybe cut back to 1/8 tsp of the cayenne.

Peastachio

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
WAY too much of the nut mixture for the amount of peas. I only used half once I saw how much there was. It was just nothing to rave about . . . sorry, but I thought it was rather bland and dry.

Apple Streusel Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I thought this was very good; hubby doesn't care for apples, so he's not a good judge. Made it for a big Thanksgiving crowd, and since there were so many other desserts there to choose from, no one ate any of this. But, will try again next fall with hopes of better tasting results.

Grilled Sausages with Caramelized Onions and Apples

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Very good, but takes a while to properly caramelize those onions, so it is not the quick dish I had hoped for.

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
What can I add to the hundreds of reviews, but DITTO! This is truly wonderful; per other reviewers, I did increase and decreases spices to taste, but honestly, the one hour to cook is the perfect temp and amount of time. This is a MUST TRY, and will serve many since you slice it so thinly.

Balsamic Pea Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I love to try new recipes, so the fact that I have made this recipe time and time again speaks volumes . . . it is that good!

Black Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I'd love to give this soup a better rating, since it is by far the "thickest" black bean soup I've made, so I'm thrilled with that aspect. However, it is VERY bland; of course you can spice it up (red pepper flakes, more cumin, etc) but the recipe as-is just doesn't get my highest rating.

Cajun Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
This recipe is your very basic deviled eggs, with the addition of a bit of spice which isn't normally in them. So, while it tastes just fine, I can't give them my highest rating due to lack of creativity.

Brilliant Sauteed Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
This truly is a winner and a keeper. I do recommend measuring out the red pepper flakes . . . I just kept shaking them on, and fear I got too much, as the broccoli was VERY spicy. But the color is fabulous and the recipe truly makes a delicious side dish.

Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Sorry . . . I found this soup to be VERY bland; who cares if it's healthy for you if it has NO taste????

Hearty Ranch and Bacon Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
If I could give this 10 stars, I would! This is by far the thickest potato soup I've ever made; tastes JUST like what you'd order at these fancy restaurants and pay $5 per bowl!!! The secret is likely in the flour/ranch dressing packet. I have a similar recipe which uses dry country gravy mix, and it thickens the soup just like this ranch dressing, except without the wonderful spice. Per other reviewers, I cut the sour cream in half, and while I could taste it, it wasn't overwhelming, so I concur this is what you need to do to keep the sour cream flavor "light". Again, this recipe is a KEEPER!!!

Lentil Rice and Veggie Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
The dish was very good and tasty (I did add 1/2 pound sweet cooked italian sausage). However, took almost an hour and a half to prepare to put into the oven. All that chopping is so tiresome. So, I've only given this dish 3 stars because of the length of preparation time.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Sorry, I found this to be nothing spectacular, as other reviewers have rated it. Best I can say is that it is probably "healthier" for you than the standard version of adding in a dry soup mix.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
very good recipe; the garlic in the butter makes a big difference; don't skip it, and PLEASE use the real deal. The tip to put a thin layer of breadcrumbs worked well to keep the bottoms crispy. And the panko crumbs truly do work to crisp up the final products. Here's a tip for the beginning (or lazy) cooks: you may do this recipe and not pound the breasts; just cook them for an hour rather than the stated 30 minutes, and they'll come out the same. The reason to pound is to keep the meat cooked uniformly, so you may find that the thinnest eand of the breasts are too dry if you don't pound them.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
The bread is delicious in-and-of-itself, and truly does not need the "topping" suggested by other reviewers. However, if you choose to add the topping, a word of warning . . . the batter fills these mini-loaf pans to the very top, and the bread mounds nicely (almost overflowing) over the tops of the pans. IF you add the topping, it may be too much for the loaves to hold, so consider a fifth mini-loaf pan to hold all that batter and topping.

Butter Brickle Frozen Delight

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I absolutely agree with the fantastic ratings on this dessert . . . only we don't slice it so thin, cause we can't stop eating it! I do delude myself into thinking I am making this "lowfat" by using Neufchatel cream cheese, Cool Whip light (only used 8 ounce carton), and Splenda in place of the regular sugar called for. The taste was incredible, so I know it really cannot be good for you! :)

Sage Sausage Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
must add 1/4 to 1/3 cup extra liquid; too dry as-is. Tastes like the Jimmy Dean sausage cheese balls, only in a pan.

Cucumber Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I was so surprised at how quickly this came together; I forgot to save out the avocado till the second "chilling", so it all went in together, but didn't hurt the taste at all. Not sure that the quartered garlic added any flavor, but it didn't hurt, of course. I had no fresh dill, so used about 1/2 tsp of the dried dill weed. This salad is SO good; a keeper!

Hot Artichoke Dip with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I followed suggestions of half mayo half cream cheese. This dish was just okay . . . as good as most artichoke dips. Definitely serve with a hearty cracker or crostini.
