Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I was skeptical at first when I read the recipe. Monteray jack cheese? In an alfredo sauce? I changed this to what I had on hand. I did not have any mushrooms, forgot the garlic and only vine ripened tomatoes. I increased the sauce ingredients 1 1/2 times and used 1 1/2 lbs of spaghetti. This was wonderful!!!! Hubby could not believe how fast this came together. Everyone gave it two thumbs up! This will go into the regular rotation. Thanks for this.

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I made this for dinner tonight changing the recipe to feed 6 people. Everyone loved it. I did use boneless breast. Some of the pieces were thick, so I had to cook them for 20 minutes until they temped 165 degrees. I served this with dumplings and a green salad.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This was wonderful. I followed other peoples advice. 1) I used 2 cups of oreo crumbs for the crust. I used 18 oreos for this. When putting it on the bottom, I pressed it up the sides about 1/4 inch so it would come out of the pan easier. 2) I used seedless raspberry jam. Doing this saved a lot of time. ***note when pouring on the second layer of batter, the raspberry jelly gets lost into the batter. When you cut it you will not see the raspberry jam. However, you do see it on top of the cheesecake. It does make a very pretty presentation. 3) I used a water bath method. Cooked for 1 hour, left it in the oven for 1 hour, cooled it in the fridge (with plastic on the surface) overnight. The next day, I removed the rim and the plastic wrap as per instructions. Hubby and kids said to add it to the regular rotation. I did not serve this with more jam on the top, it is sweet enough.

The Best Slow Cooker Cream Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I scaled this down to use 1 bag of frozen corn. I usually do not have american cheese in the house so I omitted it. Everyone thought this was yummy and I have about 1 + serving left over. Everyone gave in 2 thumbs up.

Green Onion Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
We (3 of us) liked this a lot. The kids inhaled them. Hubby is not a fan of a lot of onions, so he thought they were ok. I did try a change and took some and brush sesame oil on them instead of veggie oil (before sprinkling on green onions) and proceeded like normal. The change was great! The flavor is reminiscent of Asian onion pancakes they serve at dim sum. I will do these again. Perhaps using Chinese roast pork in the center instead of green onion for hubby.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
I used 90% lean ground beef and doubled the recipe for the filling. There was minimal grease in the pot. Based on other reviewers, I quadrupled the sauce. Good thing I did. These were great, had enough for 4 hungry people (we each had 3 to 4), plus enough for lunch the next day for all of us. All of us liked it a lot. The only 'weird' thing was the meat was pretty compact in the cabbage. I do not know if this is because I used a 1/4 cup measure and scooped the meat tightly, or because that is just the way it cooks. Still delicious though. Definitely gonna do this one again and again.

Vanilla Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
This was wonderful! I will try it with only 4 T of butter and see what happens. I filled them with sliced bananas and a squirt of chocolate syrup, rolled them up, put 2 on each plate and topped with fresh whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup on top. Everyone loved them! This is the first time I have made crepes and will be making these often! Thank you!

Stuffed Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I made these last night. Scaled the recipe down to one can of artichokes. As per another reviewer, I increased the filling ingredients to have enough. I forgot the lemon pepper, but added a dash of cayenne and it was great. The can I used had 12 chokes in it, hubby ate 8 of them himself! I did not coat the entire choke in butter, just dipped the bottoms in butter so it was less calories. I also used no fat cream cheese and sour cream. Delish!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I usually make carnitas on the stove top, but the recipe looked good since it was in the slow cooker. I cooked it exactly as stated, the spices were very nice. However, the meat came out pasty and sorry, I did not like the texture of it. Hubby and kids thought it was only ok. I do not plan on using this method again.

Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
As per other reviewers, I added more liquid. I added another can of soup. Since I did not have cream of celery soup and since there were mushrooms, I used a total of 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 chopped onion saute'd with the mushrooms, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic and 1/2 cup of half and half. The kids and I loved it! Hubby does not like turkey, so next time, I will try this with leftover chicken. Definitely a stick to your ribs kinda meal. Will make this again!

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
This is a great easy recipe. For the reviewers that state there is little taste and to make sure you use salt. Fresh Mozzarella - regardless of the size of the ball is made without salt...if you want the salt, then use packaged mozzarella like you would find in the dairy department that is packaged into squares. This was very delicious and easy to make. Would make again, making sure to marinate everything together for a couple of hours.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This is a great recipe! My kids loved it and ate 3 each. As per the other suggestions, I tried to dry them with paper towels, and the batter adhered a little better. Then, I dried them, then rolled them into flour and that did the trick. Yes, it does make a lot of batter. You can easily cut it in half (using the whole egg). I took the left over batter, added some more flour and corn meal (-eye balling it to make a thicker dough) and then some minced onion, 1/2 t salt and 1/4 t pepper more to the batter and made hush puppies. The kids have already asked if they can be made again.

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This was a great recipe. I made two of them for company. On the first one, as per other reviews, I made a double batch of dough and only used 1 cup of raspberries. I used vanilla extract and left out the almonds (allergies). The second one I doubled the raspberries along with the dough. This took 25 more minutes to cook. So, after 45 minutes, I turned the oven down to 325 to finish baking. This did dry out the dough a bit more then the first one. I also used frozen drained raspberries. I also used a 9 inch round pan (cause that is what I own) and when it was done baking, the first one filled it perfectly. The second one was really full, a bit over the edge, and some spilled onto my baking mat. I used powdered sugar, raspberry extract and heavy cream for a drizzle on top for both. Both of these got rave reviews. Only two people noticed the dryness in the second one. I bet you can substitute any fruit for this. Yes, I will be making this again!

Mexican Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
We made this for dinner tonight. I added 1/3 c each corn, chopped onion and chopped green pepper as per other suggestions. I ended up making 15 egg rolls with stuffing for 1 more left over. I used the Melissas egg roll wrappers found in the produce section. I did add the can of chilies to the whole mixture. I only had sharp cheddar and it was great. Hubby LOVED this1 I served it with a salad, re-fried beans, sour cream and salsa. It is a great base-you can make it as hot or mild as you want. Hubby ate 5 of them! Next time, I will add garlic and some chopped jalapenos for some spice.
