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.

Shrimp and Caper Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2004
Personally didn't care for the mayo/oil & vinager combo. Would probably have liked better with fat free italian dressing or even greek dressing.

Greek Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2004
Great recipe! Very tasty. I make it without the carrots and its great. Tried it with a Greek salad dressing with Feta and that made it even better!!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Ok so I made this with a butter recipe cake mix, vanilla pudding and white chocolate chips, but other than that didn't change a thing. And DON'T! I'm in Florida, so no high elevations to deal with and I found no need to change the oil amount. I cooked in two 9" round pans for 40 mins and they were perfect! Frosted with cream cheese icing, yum!

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.

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2004
No question, the best salmon recipe ever! Combines two of my favorite foods, salmon and a guacamole like dip. I can get this on the dinner table in no time flat.

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Admittedly, I didn't whip the cream to soft peaks, just whisked into mayo and combined with other. But I made this for 100, 25 pounds of chicken, and it was all gone at my wedding! People, including a local restaurant owner, have been begging me for the recipe! Ok, so here's what I did; boil skinless bone in breast meat with some salt, bay leaf and a pinch of powder chicken bouillon. Boiled the first batch of 12 pounds in that, didn't change just added water for second batch. Deboned and shredded, salted, added whole small red grapes, walnuts and mayo/cream mixture. It was GONE!

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!

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.

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
GREAT! I changed this into a quick lunch by using canned white meat chicken and then adding everything but the lettuce together. I would top with cheese and heat up for a different version. When I finally made it how the recipe calls, I was floored! All those months eating what I thought was awesome enough wasn't anything on actually following the recipe!

Better Slow Cooker Robust Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
All and all pretty good, but chicken was very dry. 2nd time around I cooked it for 4 hours on low and was pleased. Served over plain white rice to soak up all the sauce.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I love plain hummus, without all the extra flair, and this was it! A traditional, basic hummus! I did go old school and soak dried chickpeas for a day in some salted water, drained, and then brought to a boil in more salted water and left to simmer for about 3 hours. I personally, after the first batch, would drop the tahini to 1/4c and the lemon juice to about 1/8c, would add in some of the juice the chickpeas boiled in and as always, I added more garlic. Absolutly wonderful!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Fantastic! Followed contributors suggestion and really didn't measure any of the dry ingredients; couple of potatoes, skin on, 3-4 stalks of celery, 4 large carrots, small onion, couple handfuls of ham.... hard to screw up! Unless you want soggy mashed potato like soup when you reheat, do add some water, broth, milk, something when microwaving leftovers, this bad boy gets THICK!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Great! And I even messed up on one thing! I forgot to add the seasoning packet while making the roux so I just tossed it in the whole pot with the roux/cream mixture. Also, did this with fat-free half and half and it was really good, did add a touch of water when reheating but was great with a loaf of homemade sourdough!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Loved this! I'm not great cooking pork and this recipe was easy and great. I'm not sure if the cooking times in the recipe were for thick chops but I followed the suggested cooking times of 20 mins covered and 10 mins uncovered. I also deglazed the pan with the wine and heated the gravy in the pan. Thanks for sharing!

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!

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!

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!
