Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This is a good, easy and nutritious dish. I sub a can of rotel for the salsa, and mix the beans in with everything else and pour that over the chicken. I put sliced munster or jack cheese over the chicken the last few minutes of cooking, and serve with sour cream and fresh cilantro. Yum! A meal all in itself with very little effort.

Rhinelander Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I have to admit I was very leery of lentil soup - I'd never had it before but just happened to have some lentils in my pantry that needed to be used. I did make several changes to the recipe, but it turned out just delicious. I did not use the olive oil, as the bacon drippings provided enough grease to saute the veggies in. Left out the flour and nutmeg, and substituted 28 oz. crushed tomatoes for the potatoes. I also added just under a cup of red wine. Such a rich flavor, and very economical to make. The soup is so hearty, my meat eating man even enjoyed this. I'm hooked on lentil soup!

Blue Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
These were phenomenal. I made the recipe just as written, and the filling was enough to stuff 16 oz. of fresh button mushrooms. Perfect complement to our Christmas feast. My sister said they were the best stuffed mushrooms she had ever had, and my picky man said they were his favorite dish of the meal. Delicious! This one is going in the permenant file.

Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Yum! This was very good. I was concerned that it wouldn't turn out, but it totally did. I used 2 cans of chopped green chilis and 2 cups of chicken broth for the sauce. DP said he would have liked a little more spice, but we wanted the 1-year old to be able to eat this as well. Otherwise, we could have added some hotter chilis. I will probably increase green sauce by 1/2 next time, so there would be some extra for serving at the table. After reading other reviews, I opted not to fry the tortillas in oil. I did dip them in simmering heavy cream, and they did not fall apart at all. I saved a step and calories! I also don't think it's necessary to add the onions, tomatoes or olives at the end. I don't think I will next time. We enjoyed this one!

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This was pretty yummy. My BF and I both enjoyed it. He said it was "like Swanson's, only better." My one year old wouldn't eat it, but since he won't eat anything that shouldn't negatively reflect on the recipe. I halved the recipe and still had a ton leftover. I wasn't too sure how it would reheat in the microwave, but I poured a little milk on it before reheating, and then stirred it up good once it was hot. It was delicious the second time around and not at all dried out. I also used dry mustard powder instead of the dijon. I will make again, although only occasionally as it is a little sinful.

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
This was okay, but not my favorite cheesecake. Maybe I just don't like the apple/cheesecake combo. The men really liked it, but I noticed most of the women only ate half of what was on their plate. I was very worried about the apples being tough, but I sliced them very thin as other reviewers suggested, and they were fine.

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This is pretty good, and easy. I just add whatever veggies I have on hand, plus minced garlic. I also add cajun seasoning for a little kick, a couple dashes Worcestershire sauce, and a little beer in each packet. I use only olive oil, instead of the butter and vegetable oil. It's perfect for camping!

Fresh Asparagus and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This was just okay. A good way to clean out the fridge, but I'm not keeping this in my permanent file. I did add a splash of white wine, minced garlic, and a can of mushrooms to liven it up a little.

Five Star Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I chose this cheesecake recipe because it only calls for 3 pkgs. cream cheese, which I preferred over some of the other recipes that called for 4 or 5! pkgs. I wanted a classic cheesecake, and this fits the bill. Texture is very creamy. I did use another recipe for the crust (1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 C melted butter, 1/4 C sugar - bake for 10 minutes). I've made other cheesecakes in the past, and have had problems with cracking or sinking in the middle. This one looks perfect, due to the water bath. I did have trouble with water leaking into the springform pan (I ended up making the crust twice because the first one was ruined), but will experiment a bit more with the technique to get it just right. I read online to use a plastic turkey oven bag instead of the foil. No leaks! I served the cheesecake with a seedless raspberry sauce I made from frozen berries and sugar. This made an excellent birthday cake for my BF.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This taco soup is awesome! We eat this pretty regularly. So easy, good for you, inexpensive...what else can you ask for? I use ground turkey when I make this, and even BF who (always) prefers beef loves it. I've made in the crock pot and also on top of the stove - great both ways, but don't use as much water as it calls for. I find if I cook it on top of the stove it thickens up a little with time. Love the addition of chips, cheese and sour cream.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This is one of my favorite soups. During the winter months I make soup every Sunday, and this is in regular rotation. My boyfriend prefers plain, honest food, and I would rather eat something with a little more pizazz and sophistication. This recipe fits the bill on both counts. I love the addition of the curry powder.

Heavenly Chipped Chocolate and Hazelnut Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I have made this cheesecake several times, always to rave reviews. It's the best cheesecake I believe I've ever had. I initially tried the recipe so I could use up a bottle of Frangelico that I had. I always use chocolate grahams for the crust, and I think this makes it better. The hazelnuts are a pain to work with, but oh so good. I don't think I used quite as many as I was supposed to last time, and I just put the chocolate topping on and then sprinkled with chopped nuts to make it a little easier. Magnifique!

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This was just okay. I was hoping it would be great, since it's so easy, but it was really rather bland. Nothing wrong with it, but I probably won't make again.

Avocado and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
This was pretty tasty. I've made this a couple of times when I just happen to have all ingredients on hand, and need to use the produce. I probably won't go out of my way to make this again, but it's perfect if you have ripe avocados and tomatoes.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
I've been looking for my go-to brownie recipe, and this is it! Very rich, very chocolatey. They have perfect brownie texture, with flaky crust on the top, and fudgy interior. They're super easy to make, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand. I've made these a couple of times for brownies a la mode, and my family just raves about them. Yum!

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Oh, this was wonderful. My boyfriend always orders steak medallions gorgonzola at our favorite fancy restaurant, and this was almost just like that. I made this for Christmas Eve dinner, and everyone thought it was divine.

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Yum! This is fabulous. I usually double the dressing, as I like a lot of sauce. My red meat eating man even loves this. Perfect for a light dinner in the heat of the summer.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
I made this cake for my son's first birthday party. It was delicious! Very moist and great flavor. Just what I wanted - I love yellow cake with a rich, chocolate icing. I was concerned at first because the batter was very thick, and I had to cook it an extra 5 or 10 minutes, but it turned out great. This one is going in the permanent file.
