Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
Very good flavor on the chicken and veggies. Followed the recipe very closely but added a little ginger and a few shakes of hot pepper flakes. I marinanted and skewered the veggies and chicken separately. Nice change of "taste"....will be using again. Thanks for sharing.

Spinach and Blue Cheese Soup

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Who would've thought to put blue cheese and spinach in a soup?!?! It was delicious! Followed the recipe pretty closely only using fresh spinach, switching evap milk for cream and just sprinkling real bacon bits on top upon serving. And I didn't puree. Would've liked to see it thicken a bit more. Might up the flour some next time.

Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Good flavor but a little sweet for me. Next time I'll cut back on the brown sugar to see if that helps.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Very good marinade and appreciate the common ingredients. No special trip to the grocery. Thinking of adding some crushed red pepper flakes next time to add just a bit of a kick. Will certainly use this one again! Thanks.

Batman's Best Caesar Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I love this! Did it on the spur of the moment as the chicken was on the grill and it was yummy. Can't wait to taste it tomorrow after it has had time to blend. It's important to use a blender or food processer and drizzle in the most of the olive oil so that it emulsifies. Mine was nice and thick. I'm sure it would benefit from fresh lemon juice and high quality parm but even Real Lemon and Kraft were good! I doubled the garlic and didn't have anchovy paste but otherwise to the letter! Thanks for sharing!

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Made this for my hubby's birthday. We usually go to an upscale steak house for his birthday. He said this was as good if not better than a $50 steak there. Followed the recipe exactly. Highly recommend the use of a digital meat thermometer....cooked them just perfectly medium rare with that. I used a cast iron grill skillet(it has raised ridges on the inside bottom) and seared them and then just put the whole skillet in the oven. Got gorgeous grill lines on the steaks! And is much easier to clean. Served with the garlic mashed potatoes as recommended and it was a wonderful meal.

Orange Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
Very good, refreshing flavor. Followed the recipe with exception of using dried rosemary and grilling chicken boneless, skinless breasts on the "George". Very good, will use again and again I'm sure. Thanks!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
These were fantastic. Had another recipe that claimed to be PF Chang's and threw it out for this one. I used ground turkey and fresh ginger and couldn't even find the hoisin sauce at the grocery. (found it since and have it for next time). Used about 2 T fresh ginger and that was a bit strong. Love finding recipes that are full of flavor and smart food. Served with some egg drop soup and made a healthy satisfying meal.

Supreme Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
These were good. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of the cream of chicken and followed the rest as written. Baked covered for 45 mins and uncovered for 20 or so to get the potatoes tender. Could have used a bit more milk as mine came out a bit dry for my taste. Thanks for sharing!

Lamb Feta Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
I don't care for lamb so I used ground turkey. But pretty much followed the rest of the recipe, except for using uncooked brown instant rice for the cooked rice(just to save a few steps and time). And these were GREAT! I'm white bread American but love the flavors of the dill and allspice and feta in these peppers. Have to admit I was apprehensive about that much dill but it was wonderful. I even put some of the feta into the filling and loved that too. Thanks Taseia!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
The family loved these! I made just a couple modifications. I used 2 bags of frozen cubed hash browns and just let the bags thaw on the counter for an hour or so before mixing with the seasonings. Added 1/4 c green onions, chopped and 3 T of real bacon bits. Also, used 3T butter and a few drizzles of olive oil. Then because the of using the hash browns just let it bake 30-35 minutes before adding the ranch and cheese. Everyone went back for seconds!

Easy Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
I probably make this once a week. It is one of our very favorite recipes. The only think I do differently is to add some real bacon bits to the onions, and I don't use the cracker crumbs either. But this is quick, easy, healthy and very yummy. Thanks for sharing!

Blue Motorcycle

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Was looking for blue drinks for my Superbowl party. This is ok but needs a bit of tweaking. Too much alcohol to amount of mixer for me and I love Long Islands. Increased the sour and Sprite and that helped. Pretty color blue though! Thanks.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Followed the recipe exactly and it was as good, if not better than the fancy resturant versions! Been trying to duplicate those for 20 yrs and could never seem to get the taste I wanted. My search is over! Thank you!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This is chili lovers chili! Yum! I had my doubts..26 ingredients??? The only changes I made were to omit the celery, added a large can of tomato juice and cut the hot pepper sauce and cayenne in half. (You can always add more later but you can't cool it down!) It was still hot but not too hot for us to enjoy. Heat is personal! And adding the tomato juice made less like stew and more like chili. Go Boilers!

Andouille and Chicken Creole Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
My hubby really loved this. I thought it needed a little work from a flavor stand point and consistency. Thought it needed some depth and it didn't thicken like it should. I followed the recipe as written. Next time will try adding the celery and making rouex instead of the cornstarch as some have suggested. I think the sausage needed really browned before adding the chicken to give the sauce some color. Also, both of us thought it would be better over rice instead of pasta.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Need another star! Had never had Italian beef before but it sounded good and it was! I did the recommended alterations of no extra salt, extra packet of Italian dressing and beef broth. I've been told by the hubby that we WILL doing that one again and again.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Everyone loved this. I didn't mix the mini chips in but rolled the ball in them. I think it made it easier to spread on the vanilla wafers that I used. I spread the chips out on a piece of plastic wrap and then wrapped the ball in the plastic pressing the chips into the ball and the picked the whole thing up a put slid it into a leftover bowl that was about the same size and the cheese ball and put it in the fridge to chill. Then at serving time just picked up the plastic and ball and rolled onto the serving plate. Worked really well!

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
My family says these were the best wings they've every had...counting "professional" ones from BW's. They were tender and crispy and very flavorful. I didn't use the 5 t of cayenne, just probably 1 t, and some garlic and onion powders and salt. I did add about 1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs. I patted the wings dry and let them sit for a bit as others have recommended. Then dredged them in sauces and butter before baking. I used an actual cookie sheet and would recommend using something closer to a jelly roll pan (something with some sides) as they cook out some and the cookie sheet was in danger leaking drippings onto the bottom of the oven. They were a little labor intensive but well worth it. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I made these twice yesterday. The first batch I used a Betty Crocker Lemon cake mix and they were wonderful! But they didn't make very many cookies so I decided to make another batch. The second batch I couldn't find Betty Crocker and got a Duncan Hines and they were awful! The Duncan Hines batch was flat and ugly. Still tasted ok but not near the fluffy, soft , melt-in-your-mouth texture of the Betty Crocker batch. I took someone's advice and chilled the dough on both batches and this is a very good tip. I also added about a T of lemon juice to both. So double the recipe but get the Betty Crocker Mix and you'll be very pleased!
