Chicken Sweet Potato Skillet

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
I changed a few things... use apples instead of pears as that was all I had, used Jack Daniels instead of Irish Whiskey, walnuts instead of hazelnuts and used chicken boullion instead of just water. I also tripled the whiskey amount, as my husband and I both love the taste of whiskey and the dish was not overpoweringly whiskey tasting. It was perfect! Absolutely will make again, especially in the fall.

Spicy, Creamy Chicken Thai Noodle Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
5 stars with my changes. I didn't have any poultry seasoning, so I just added a little marjoram, rosemary, and parsley. I will definitely cut back on the cayenne next time - maybe even in half. It was hot! I didn't even add the red chili pepper. The big change that made the recipe, I think, was that I added 1 Cup half & half to cut the heat and keep the flavor of the cayenne. I know that sounds like a lot, but it only adds 50 calories to each serving and makes it absolutely delicious! I will definitely make this again - the husband loved it! Oh, and instead of using the crock pot, I just sauted the veggies, threw them in the broth and spices, then added the pan fried chicken, half and half, and I used rice instead of noodles. Took maybe 45 - 1 hr to make.

Gnocchi and Peppers in Balsamic Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
5 stars with the changes I made. I used twice the amount of veggies to give it a healthy boost, and I used button mushrooms quartered instead of the crimini mushrooms. I used only 2 tbsps butter and added the vinegar to taste (maybe 1/6 or 1/8 C?). I added 3/4 cup chicken boullion with about 1-2 tbsps white flour in it to make more and a thicker sauce. I also added about 1/2 cup shredded chicken to give it some protein. Now it's a complete meal! I loved and so did my husband.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
I increased the wine three fold by first reducing the wine to the recipe's recommended amount. I also increased the (sodium free) chicken broth by one half. I cut the butter and oil in half and this made for a leaner, tastier version as both my husband and I are very health/weight conscious. I had to use white onion, so I added a touch of garlic as shallots have a naturally light garlicky taste. I will definitely make this again.
