World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
I haven't had a lot of luck with lasagna. I have attempted several recipes but finally I found a recipe I could work with. A couple of adjustments. I used more cheese - 3/4 cup was not enough for my family. I used 2 cups of mozzarella and 1 1/2 cups of parmesan cheese. I will make this again and add another 8 oz of ricotta because we just like more cheese. I did follow the other reviewers recommendations with soaking the noodles and it worked great. In fact, my children really like how the noodles turned out and they were too soggy. I did baked the lasagna a bit longer - for about 35 minutes covered and then 20 minutes. It just wasn't cooked enough at 20 minutes. My family loved this recipe and I am so pleased!

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
I also prepared these meatballs for the first time for a party but made sure to read the reviews first. I didn't have a lot of time so I used frozen HOMESTYLE meatballs (you need to watch out for the packaging). I combined a bit of cranberry sauce and ligonberry jelly because I didn't want to open another can ( was doubling the recipe). I also used Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and it was amazing. Big hit! They were very easy and very tasty. My step son said they were "amazing" and for him to compliment my cooking...yeah...I'll take it!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
Tried this recipe for the first time for a party with friends and it was a big hit. I read several reviews to get some ideas and I used center cut bacon and used it cold as recommended. I used smoked cocktail wieners. I cut the bacon in half and it worked out perfectly in numbers with the package (the bacon was 12 oz and the wieners were 12 oz as well). Also one of the recommendations was to use heavy duty aluminum foil - completely agree because it does help with the clean up. I will admit when it was time to put brown sugar on the wieners, I was afraid because it seemed like a lot but I followed the recipe. I did double this recipe. I baked it for 40 minutes at 325 but then baked it for another 15 minutes at 350 and it was PERFECT. Placed them in a crockpot and they were a hit with everyone!!! Thank you!!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
This pie was incredibly easy to prepare. I used my mexican lime squeezer for the key limes and it was so easy; even my 9 year old daughter helped me. I followed other reviews and did 20 key limes and two cans of condensed milk and it turned out wonderful. Baked the pie for about 8 minutes and sure enough, saw the little bubbles on the very top start to pop but the pie did NOT brown. Allow it to chill in the fridge all day and there was no leftovers to enjoy the next day. Served with whipped cream.

Spicy Tex-Mex Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
It was good and added corn and chicken to make it more of a meal. I was afraid of putting in so much dressing but you really need that much dressing or it will be bland.

Caribbean-Spiced Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
Very good but doesn't look anything like the picture. Took much longer than the recipe mentioned...more like two hours and I had to put the temp up to 350 because 325 wasn't doing it. Very good comments from the dinner party.

Chow Mein with Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
The recipe did take a lot of prep work but the taste was as good as the lo mein noodles in a Chinese restaurant without the greasy taste. My children loved it and asked for seconds. I especially appreciated the additions of vegetables.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Very easy to prepare. Used the prepared bread cubes from Pepperidge Farms to make things easier. Only used about 2 cups of chicken broth. The slow cooker was a brillant idea because the turkey is truly taking over the oven.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Made this for dinner and we couldn't be around to follow the instructions with the chicken first and then the additional items...so we simply put it all together in the am. It was rated a 6 out of 10. The presentation lacked and the flavours were bland. But, then again, we didn't have time to cook the chicken separately.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
This was a very easy recipe. Used Pillsbury pie crust and prebaked the bottom crust for about 5 minutes. Baked at 374 for about 45 minutes and let it rest for at least 20 minutes. It was the perfect consistency and cut beautifully.

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
Read the reviews and we marinated the pork beforehand in olive oil, garlic, and some herbs. The recipe called for way too much bread crumbs. I also tented the pork for 30 minutes as some of the reviews recommended. My husband loved it, I liked it. It just lacked something...

Chef John's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Changed a couple of things. Poached the chicken breasts with a little olive oil, celery and onion with chicken granules and four cups of water. Brought it to a boil and then turned off the stove; one hour later perfectly poached chicken. Shredded the chicken and sieved the ingredients from the broth. Used the chicken and the broth with some homemade amish egg noodles; plus all other ingredients. Did not have chicken fat so I used canola oil instead. This was absolutely delicious. I think my method is a lot easier with less work and the taste plus presentation is wonderful,

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
We did not have cayenne so instead added hot sauce (similar to Franks Hot Sauce); 2 tsp. We also added a can of rinsed black beans. There is no way this chili would have been ready in 30 minutes - too runny for our taste. We simmered the chili for about three hours on low (3) and it was perfect. Add some sour cream, cheese, and frito chips. Enjoy a beer with it! My husband LOVED it!!! I know this will be better tomorrow...

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Okay...learn from my mistake, be sure to have nice sized balls. Do not make them so small that the peanut butter cookie can't hold the candy cup. I baked two batches and the first one turned out not so good, the cookie was over cooked and the cup was too big for the cookie. I lowered the heat down to 350, created bigger cookie balls and it turned out awesome. Next time I make this, I might roll the balls in granulated sugar (what I do with my blossoms) because it never fails for the taste of the cookie. Giving the nice batch to a family in need and my co-workers. The not pretty batch will stay home and the kids will be thrilled.

Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
Made this recipe for bunco and I didn't have the 18.25 oz box of cake mix - just the standard 15 oz box and it turned out beautifully. Definitely rich and the cool whip did add something extra to it (used the light version).

Simple Garlic Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
I watched the video and followed the exact instructions. Sometimes I will change things for my family but this was PERFECT. Served with yellow rice and caesar salad. Wonderfully garlicky meal!!!

Creamy Parmesan and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Penne

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
This was fantastic! We couldn't find the McCormack seasoning for sun-dried tomatoes. Instead we used the Sweet Basil and Oregano Bruschetta seasoning and it was delicious. Also, some of us added some red pepper flakes for a little kick. Definitely a keeper.

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
We are BIG fans of buffalo wings and have done a similar recipe with boned wings. I purchased boneless chicken tenderloins to help with the prep work. I doubled the sauce and added two tablespoons of honey as well to the sauce. Turned out wonderful!

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
After reading the reviews, I did make a couple of adjustments. First, I purchased boneless thin chops and that was nice because the cook time was less. Also, I wouldn't recommend the garlic salt - either real garlic or garlic powder. I did deglaze my pan with white wine and put in fresh garlic and thyme. After the alcohol had cooked off, I put in the fresh mushrooms, the soup, and a half of can of milk, stirring all together. Lastly, I put the chops back in with a lid and this meal was done thirty minutes later. Beautiful!
