Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Amazing! I added this to a chocolate peanut butter layer cake as the filling and it lightened the whole thing up so it wasn't so "Death by chocolate/peanut butter" without taking any flavor away. So simple and easy to make up!

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I had never had Corned beef as a kid since my mother can't stand it and hates the smell of cabbage. I LOVE the dish when I can find a good Irish restaurant to have it at and this recipe was amazing! I don't change a thing and even bought a larger slow cooker to cram it all in! I hate cooked carrots but still add it since others like them and they do add a lot to the flavor. I normally won't eat onion any bigger than minced but I was chowing down on the onion wedges because they were so tender and had so much flavor. This is something we have added to our monthly menu and it's always a hit with my partner who normally hates leftovers, fighting me for what's left!

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
My partner loved this. For dietary reasons next time I will change up a bit. First time around I used a whole small box of instant potatoes (felt like cheating) and that was way too much for me personally so here goes for my changes: I would up the meat to 1 1/2-2lbs which I browned with a little garlic and olive oil, salt and pepper and steak seasoning. Not really sure what the canned mushrooms added so next time will only add if I have some already in the pantry. I did a large can of Veg-All but next time I think I'll add just a can or two of corn and 2 cans green beans. I was served this once by an Englishman who layered it with meat, veggies, potatoes, and then cheese. Might try the cheese but not exactly a healthy addition! Lots of juice so it could stand to handle more veggies if using the recipe as stated. Very good and easy when using instant taters so something I will keep around for one of those nights where meal-in-a-bowl is welcomed!

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I gave this 4 stars as it was written. I changed some things and will add some things next time: 3 TB olive oil, we love garlic so a heaping tablespoon of minced jar garlic, 1c onion. Next time will add 1/4 white wine with chicken. Used one lg tomato but next time will use 2 drained cans Italian seasoned diced tomatoes. Will add olives, doubled lemon juice and feta and added more feta as garnish to top. I used a pound of farfalle pasta and with the amount of chicken (4 thin breasts) it was a good amount. I also added some dried basil since I didn't have the parsley. Good as written but when you grew up in Tarpon Springs you want REAL Greek tasting dishes!

Slow Cooker Chicken Creole

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
Very good. I did follow others suggestions and added 1 cup chicken broth, don't know if I needed to unless you want/like more of a Jambalaya consistency over rice. Served with 2 cups dry rice, and it was AWESOME. Added 2 jalepenos and 2 serrano peppers since we like things really hot and it was amazing. Also, made recipe with 2.5 pounds boneless/skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts and was great!

Cabbage Rolls II

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I made these the first time per the recipe and found them to be too sweet as many others did and the cookies spread out too much. Second time around I love them with these changes: add 1/2 t baking soda, reduce white chocolate chips to 1/2 cup, soaked cranberries over night in brandy, add 1 t vanilla, 1/8 t salt. Also from what I played with do NOT try to make these super sized cookies, they won't bake all the way through without spreading out, but two bite sized cookies turn out perfect!

Microwave Pralines

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
I was a little worried about making these as so many people had issues with the microwave times. I have a 1000 watt microwave and cooked them on high for 4 minutes then stirred, and then cooked another 5 minutes. They turned out perfectly! I'm in Florida, and although its not real humid right now in Dec., these still turned out just fine with all the windows open! I think my best Christmas gift will be seeing the look on my mothers face since she has tried had failed so many times attempting to make pralines! Also, I don't know how you could possibly get 3 dozen out of this recipe, I got 1 dozen smaller than New Orleans style pralines.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
I made two batches of this tonight. My first time ever making peanut brittle and I followed the recipe exactly but did do 2 tablespoons of butter as suggested by another. My microwave is 1000 watts so I put it on 70% power for 7 minutes then 3 minutes and it came out good but the taste was missing something. The second batch I did the same but added the salt along with the vanilla and upped the butter to 3 tablespoons. I did up the cooking time the first go around to 8 minutes and did pull it out with about 3 left to stir. Cooked the last part the same, 3 minutes and this batch turned out SO much better tasting than the first. Very easy and will make a regular in my holiday cooking!

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
This was wonderful! So quick and easy. What took me the longest was waiting on the rice. I took the advice from others and changed a few things. I doubled the soy sauce, used splenda instead of sugar, upped the ginger to about a 1/2 tablespoon, used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic (I love garlic) and added about 2t of red pepper flakes (a little spicy like I like it!). Also, since I like my meat very tender, I browned it and then removed it from the wok so it didn't over cook. Also, I used flash frozen broccoli so I cooked that al dente in the microwave and only had to let it cook in the wok for about a minute or so. I then added the beef back and stirred n' served! I used skirt steak which, in my opinion, is tougher than round. If using skirt again I will probably marinate for an hour or so in some soy sauce, red pepper, garlic and ginger to give it some more flavor and tenderize it, especially since I didn't cook it in the sauce like the directions. All in all this is a wonderful recipe!

Cashew Avocado Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
Really Really Good! If you are making up more than what you will eat at one time, don't forget to save the avocado seed and throw it in with leftovers so that you don't have ugly brown salad for seconds!

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
If you like your food REALLY rich, then make as the recipe states. Otherwise, you might want to omit one or the other of the cheeses, or at least cut back on the cream cheese and I would only use Extra Sharp cheddar for this. The rest of the recipe was AWESOME once you got over the richness of the stuffing. Even my partner who I have to hide cheese from so I know its there for recipes, thought that the chesse was a little overwhelming.

Baked Havarti Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
Made as instructed and honestly didn't see the point in the peppers. Didn't add any flavor to mine and what flavor it did add seemed to clash with the rest. Now, the mushrooms on the other hand, WOW!!!! Have used the mushroom part of the recipe to add to just about everything from steak to pasta. I don't really care for mushrooms, except the ones like this!

Broiled Herb Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Smelled divine in the oven, but none of that flavor was imparted to the chicken. Left alot to be desired, but good if you like a little flavor.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
I had to improvise at my employeers house and make this with frozen chopped broccoli, still tasted great. Can't wait to try again with fresh florets and I chose to add more cashews!

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
I started not to follow the directions and cook this entirely in the cast iron skillet. I come from a family that we blackened something almost once a week and this was as close to my dad's secret blend as I have ever tasted. I followed the directions and finishing up in the oven really locked in the juices and kept the chicken so moist. I will be making up a jar of this "Gun Powder" (as my dad calls his blend) and will be doing this again and will try on fish as well! Thanks!!!!

Montreal Peppered Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
I am incompetent when it comes to making steak, let alone doing it in the oven on broil, but this recipe was great! I cut it in half and marinated a pound of sirloin steaks for about 20 minutes then broiled for 4 minutes on each side for a nice med/med-rare on the 1" thick steaks. Even though I only marinated for 20minutes, the steaks had the flavor of the spices. I followed directions and added the recommended amount of soy sauce, but if I were to have marinated longer, it probably would have become too salty. I sliced this up to throw on top of salad mix. This fooled people into thinking I actually know how to cook steak!

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
Following the recipe, this is a lot of work for no taste. I was really looking forward to it but should have known the lack of spices would turn out to be a not so good thing. Self admittedly I like things with a lot of taste to it, but even expecting it to come up a little short didn't quite cover it. I made it a second time, almost didn't, when I read Rainah's modifications. With the new recipe this was awesome and moved to a 5 star! With the recipe how it is written though, I think it falls short of expectations.

Bourbon Pecan Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
When I made this, I didn't get the pecans chopped fine enough so my breading didn't really stay on, but other than that, this was DIVINE! Next time I will run the pecans through the chopper to make sure they are the same consistency as the bread crumbs.
