Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This dish is fabulous. So many raters said "better than the restaurant version", and they were right. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if that's where this receipe came from. I doubled the sauce. I didn't need/use the cornstarch slurry, it wasn't necessary (the sauce thickened nicely on it's own). So happy I came across this little dish!

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I seriously could not believe how delicious this was. I made it 24 hours in advance of serving it (a must, so the graham crackers absorb the pudding and convert to the consistency of crust). Wow. Unbelievable. It reminded me of a cream-filled maple bar (donut). I used homemade chocolate frosting (softened in the microwave to a pourable consistency). As the frosting cools in the fridge, it takes on the appearance/consistency of a ganache. Next time, I plan to use a dark chocolate ganache. Whipped this whole thing up in literally minutes. A thousand "thank you's" for the recipe.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
No knife work - a perfect busy day meal! I lightly steamed frozen whole broccoli spears and used left over chopped turkey from my freezer. Stirred everything together in a mixing bowl (used about 3/4C sour cream in lieu of milk), popped it in a greased casserole dish, and viola... a delicious comforting dinner in the blink of an eye. A new work night favorite!

Hot Corn Dip

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Made it as directed, and it was pretty darned good. I thought it was only worthy of 4 stars, but my guests raved about it and made me promise to give it 5 stars. So, 5 it is.

Busy Day Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I've made this receipe numerous times - it really is the perfect busy day meal. To keep the bird out of the liquid that accummulates on the bottom of the slow cooker during cooking, make 3 "balls" out of tinfoil, and place them in the slow cooker first. Then, set the bird on top of the balls (which lifts the bird off the bottom of the slow cooker). Cover in BBQ sauce. Cook 10 hours on low. I use this method to cook whole birds all the time, using a variety of seasonings (not just BBQ sauce). It's fantastic. Plus, the bird is easy to debone and the leftover meat (which freezes well) can be used in a plethora of ways.

Hearty Halibut Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Great receipe. I used talapia and cod (that's what I had on hand). I added 2 cans of creamed corn (an awesome addition), and I used 1/2-n-1/2 instead of heavy cream and milk. In my opinion, this recipe does not need the cheese. I tasted the choweder before and after I added the cheese, and I actually think it's a little better without the cheese. Finally, I used cilantro as a garnish, and omigosh, it added a fantastic, wonderful flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

Spiced Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
The butter/beer/beef broth/dried thyme make an incredible gravy which serves as the base to this recipe. I added diced new potatoes (left the skins on), fresh cracked black pepper, and sea salt along the way. I made this on the stove top instead of in the oven. The brown sugar adds a nice background sweetness. Awesome recipe.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Wow, what a dish. I added sauteed mushrooms and used high quality dried basil (my fresh basil went bad in the fridge overnight). Fantastic. I will make this often in a variety of ways. Thanks for the recipe!

Sauteed Spinach and Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
The peppers, onion, and garlic impart an amazing amount of flavor on the spinach. Loved it.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Roasting takes these babies to a whole new level. I followed the recipe exactly, and I'm glad I did because they are fantastic. Nutritious, delicious, and so easy to prepare. All I have to say is "Welcome to the family, tasty little sprout receipe!"

California Creamy Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This is a yummy, comforting potato casserole. And, it was extremely quick and easy to make (I used a mandolin to the slice the potatoes). I rough chopped 12 large cloves of garlic (I'm addicted to the stuff), and used yellow cheddar. I added a little salt and pepper too. I covered the dish with tinfoil and baked it for 45 minutes, then uncovered it/baked it for another 15. This recipe is a keeper.

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
I accidentally purchased canned sweet potatoes packed in a light syrup. So, I drained them, added the butter, and about a 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar (and nothing else). I also added an extra 1/2 cup of pecans to the topping (there just weren't enough nuts for me). The casserole turned out great. It was easy to make and was an awesome compliment to our Thanksgiving Day meal.

Baked Ziti III

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Perfect pasta. I used whole wheat penne pasta and mixed it with sour cream, dry basil, italian seasoning, and salt/pepper. I used thick slices of jack cheese (in lieu of provolone and mozzarella). I layered the sauce/meat mixture, the pasta coated in sour cream and dry seasoning, and jack cheese (layering it like lasagna and ending with the sauce/meat mixture and a dusting of parmesan). Awesome.

Waikiki Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
This is not "cornbread" in the traditional sense, but it is outstanding. Cornbread is normally quite nutritious, but this is more like yellow cake (there's only a 1/4 cup cornmeal in the entire recipe). I will make this again for a delicious change of pace, but not too often because I felt so guilty eating/serving it :)

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
This was a big hit and a delicious surprise. I used 2 cans undrained fire-roasted diced tomatoes (in lieu of the plum tomatoes), and cut the heavy cream back to 1 cup. And, I used turkey sausage instead of pork. I left the sausage "meat ball-size" instead of crumbling it, and added 4 cups raw spinach. Plenty for lefovers tomorrow night, which is a great thing!

Taco Seasoning

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
Oh, I'm loving this. Better than the prepackaged seasoning mix, easily made with spices I already in my cupboard, and cheaper. Score!
