Classic Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
I make this sauce all the time for parties. I use frozen meatballs and cook it in the crock pot for simplicity.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
This was yummy. I had four thin breast cutlets, so I quadrupled the yield because the original yield did not look like enough. I will definitely make up a big batch and store it in a recycled shaker so that it's that much easier to make in the future. I don't have a cast iron skillet, so I used a nonstick saute pan sprayed with Pam. I served it with the Alfredo Blue recipe from this site.

Alfredo Blue

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
This was delicious. I forgot to add the Italian seasoning, but I followed the directions otherwise. I served it with the Blackened Chicken recipe from this site by Karena.

Shredded Beef Chimichangas

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
These came out exactly as I had hoped. The water had evaporated in my Dutch oven after about twenty minutes, and I turned the heat down to low a few minutes after I added the beef stock mixture because it was boiling. It only took about ninety minutes for the meat to be ready to be shredded. I put some refried beans, rice and cheese inside before I baked them.

Baked Cheddar Bacon Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I made this for a football party. I omitted the mayo based on another reviwer's suggestion, and I used a bag of shredded cheddar for convenience. I baked it in the removable crock from my crock pot, then I put it in the crock pot heater on low after giving it some time to cool. I served it with French bread and crackers, but my guests repurposed tortilla chips for it as well. It was yummy, and I'll make it again.

Greek Couscous

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I doubled the recipe so that I would have enough to bring for lunches this week. I used all chicken broth instead of some water because I did not want to waste the rest of the can. I also only used a can of garbanzo beans, which was a little scant, because I didn't want to open a second for another ounce of beans. The results were delicious.

Picadillo

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I did not care for this. I made it to use as a filling for empanadas, and it was too sweet. I used cumin and chili powder and only half the amount of cinnamon that was called for, but I had to add half a packet of taco seasoning to make it palatable. I will most likely not make it again.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
My husband and I tried this dish on our recent honeymoon, and we couldn't wait to try making it ourselves at home. This recipe was delicious. I used about 1 teaspoon of salt in the marinade and maybe a quarter teaspoon in the sauce because other reviewers said it was too salty as written. I used chicken tenderloins becasue they are quicker to cut into bite-size pieces of uniform size. We do not have a grill, so I baked the skewered chicken at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or so. I put it on a cooling rack that I placed on top of a baking sheet so that it didn't get soggy. I did not put the chicken in the sauce at the end because I was worried it would soak up too much of the sauce and I couldn't wait anymore to try it! I served it over basmati rice and with naan that I purchased at the store and heated in the oven. My husband said it was the best thing I have ever made :) Thanks for a great recipe! EDIT: I also used about 2 tbsp of garam masala in place of the cumin, cinnamon and cayenne in the marinade per other reviewers' suggestions. I used the cumin and paprika in the sauce still.

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
I usually make this dip with sugar free vanilla pudding that I prepare according the the directions on the package in place of the marshmallow creme, light cream cheese, and some lemon zest.

Tender Pan-Fried Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
We enjoyed this. We used thin chicken cutlets instead of breasts because we like them better. We also followed the advice of other reviewers and placed it on a rack on top of a jelly roll pan to bake it, and it was very crispy. I had told my husband to omit the ginger becasue I don't like it, but he snuck some in and it was good.

Mom's Country Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
My husband added garlic powder and additional salt and pepper, but we still did not enjoy it as much as we had hoped. If he wants to make it again, I will suggest that he uses bacon grease and/or butter.

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
These were bland to our taste as written. We added two ounces of softened cream cheese, and that made them more pleasing to our palate.

Super Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
I basically doubled the recipe, although I didn't measure anything that carefully. I used 1/4 c of vegetable oil, 3 limes, omitted the pepper flakes because my mom doesn't like spicy food, and used about a teaspoon each of cumin, ground coriander and chili powder. I also didn't use green onions because I forgot to buy them. I marinated a 2 lb flank steak for about 10 hours, and my husband grilled it to medium rare. We let it sit for about 10 minutes before slicing it. The results were delicious!

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
My husband has made this twice, and it's delicious. The first time he used a pound (16 oz) of elbow pasta, and the bread crumb topping came out very crisp. The second time he used a 13.25 oz box of Dreamfield elbows, and the topping wasn't as crispy. He made one batch, and then I mixed steamed vegetables into mine and he mixed browned Italian sausage meat into his. We will definitely be making this mac and cheese again, but we may try a topping of crushed Ritz crackers mixed with butter next time.

I love this dip. I prefer to use blue cheese dressing also.

Noodles Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
My fiance, who does not cook often, made this for me the other night. It came out great! I have always been reticent to try out an alfredo redcipe because it seems complicated, but he said this was easy to make. He added a little mozzarella cheese because we didn't have quite enough parmesan on hand. He heated some leftovers up the next day and said it still tasted good, but the sauce did separate a little (normal for alfredo, I think).

Lamb Ribs with Honey and Wine

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
My boyfriend made this for me the other night, and it was fantastic. He used lamb shoulder and loin because it looked better in the store. He also used zinfandel instead of dry white wine, but this was an accident. Even with the inadvertent change, the results were delicious.

BBQ Bacon Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
I mixed the BBQ sauce with the cream cheese and ranch to make it more scoopable because I couldn't find my hand mixer. I like the dip, but I don't love it. One change I would probably make next time would be to eliminate the bacon because it gets soggy quickly, which I don't like. I used Bullseye Original BBQ sauce and served it with Fritos scoops.

Dirty Martini Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I followed the directions exactly, and the spread was way too thin. I added another 8 oz package of cream cheese and that fixed the consistency problem. After letting it sit overnight, I found the vodka taste to be too strong the next day. I might try to make it again with less vodka to see if it's just my taste that's off, but I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would.
