Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
Very satisfying. Moderately spicy. I shredded a deli rotisserie chicken instead of chopping up just breast meat. Try replacing a can of white beans with black beans for variety. I added half a bottle of lagunitas little sumpin' sumpin' ale and two bay leaves at the beginning of the 15 minute simmer. Definitely going to make this again, and again.

Mom's Island Treasures

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
My boyfriend was speechless! These cookies are moist and flavorful. I used walnuts since I had no pecans. We're coconut lovers in my house so I replaced half the vanilla extract with coconut extract. Has anyone tried using coconut oil instead of butter? Maybe replace half?

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
Easy. Just use whatever dried herbs you already have. Naan bread can be used as a substitution for pita bread.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
Delicious vinaigrette and salad. I had almonds and fontina on hand instead of swiss and cashews. I skipped the poppy seeds and added half a tablespoon of celery seed. Next time, I want to reduce the amount of sugar by half to see if it makes a big difference. With the leftover dressing I plan to marinate some chicken thighs.

Chex® Lemon Buddies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
I did not bake the mixture like some other reviewers did. No need. I melted the sauce on the stove, stirring with a whisk, instead of using the microwave. I did not use a zip top bag. I used a big bowl and a spatula to add the powdered sugar. Maybe the "stale" nature of the mix that people keep mentioning is simply because this is more like a nestle crunch candy bar than a bowl of cereal with milk. One should not expect candy-coated cereal to remain perfectly crisp. The recipe is great. As an afterthought, I tossed in some golden raisins, dried cranberries, and chopped cashews. I'm giving a tin of this mixture to my boyfriend in about 24 hrs. We'll see if it still tastes great after a day in the fridge.

Campfire Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Excellent flavor. Next time, I'll flip the packets more frequently as the food stuck to the foil and burned a bit. The cheese could be doubled and added after cooking for additional burn prevention as well as extra gooiness. Is that a word?

Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Tastes fan-freakin'-tastic. The saucy cut-up fruit does not travel well. Wait til it's the last possible moment to mix it up.

Grilled Chicken Spiedies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
My boyfriend and I took the chicken bits in a zip lock on our camping trip. We toasted the buns on the grill after brushing them with the reduced marinade. I swear I almost saw a single tear fall from his eye As he described the flavor. This is the best grilled chicken recipe either of us has ever tasted! I'm drooling just remembering it... Mmm.

Almond Gelatin

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Simple recipe. Can be served at the most elegant of gatherings. Skip the fruit coctail. Use fresh diced fruit such as pear papaya and mango. This recipe is far superior to the "Almond Jelly" recipe on this website.
