Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Oh. My. Goodness. This was one of the best dishes I've ever tasted. I didn't make it exactly as written, as the cottage cheese idea made me a little squeamish. Instead, I mixed in some heavy cream for moisture (didn't measure). Also used panko breadcrumbs, which were a perfect topping for this creamy and flavorful dish.

Chicken Marsala II

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This dish tastes like a greatly improved version of Macaroni Grill's chicken marsala, which is a favorite. I made a few subtle changes: I doubled the sauce; used chianti, because that's what I had on hand; threw in a chicken bouillon cube with the sauce; added the bacon back into the sauce at the end (I wasn't sure what to do with it); added a minced garlic clove to the sauce. The whole family loved it - fantastic!! I should also mention that it makes a beautiful presentation with mashed potatoes and steamed garlic.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
As a sloppy measurer, I think I added too much peanut butter, but it was still yummy. I used regular spaghetti in place of the pasta specified, which turned out nicely. This is even better as leftovers, though - toss them into a skillet with a little sesame oil and some extra soy sauce, heat and stir for a couple of minutes, and you have a great lunch!

Chicken Papadoris

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
Thank you, William, for a wonderful recipe. I love spicy foods, but prepared this as written as my family is very sensitive to spices. I didn't feel that it was bland at all - the flavors were very delicate and the chicken was tender and moist - delicious! I substituted a small amount of red curry paste for the spices and it still turned out beautifully.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Thanks for this awesome recipe! No more sauce from a jar! There are a couple of things that you can do to take this sauce from great to spectacular. First, double the garlic. My family is very garlic-phobic, but they love this sauce with the extra cloves. Add a tsp. of dried basil as well for extra flavor. Second, add 2 tbsp. of honey AND 1 or two crumbled chicken boullion cubes as the sauce simmers. It balances the flavors perfectly.

The Best Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
By far the best cookies that I have ever tasted! I use cranberries instead of raisins, and added just a little extra salt. I have made these cookies three times in the last three weeks and my family goes crazy for them. If you are looking for an oatmeal cookie recipe - this is the one you want!
