Herb Biscuit Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
This is my go-to bread accompaniment to pasta dishes. They are a nice change to garlic bread, etc., especially when I am serving guests. They always get rave reviews and they are so easy to make. I just made them again last night, serving 14 people, so I bought two big cans of jumbo biscuits. I doubled the butter/herb ingredients and increased the size of the pan. I baked as directed, but the biscuits in the middle were a little doughy and the most popular of the pan! Next time, I'm going to underbake them just a little -- heavenly!

Taco Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
This is a favorite during our summer vacations. Feeds 5 big boys; nothing left! Started baking at 350, but upped the temp to 375 to move it along.

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2014
These cookies are perfect! Plump, soft and chewy; I am delighted that they kept their shape and look as good as they taste. I followed the recipe exactly. I had a bag of white chocolate M&Ms that I tossed in with the white chocolate chips, just because we love our candy! This is my go-to cookie from now on. Thank you!

Garlic and Parmesan Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
Amazing. Easy and soooo delicious! We couldn't stop eating them. I enjoyed dipping them in ranch dressing to offset the spiciness. Definitely a keeper worthy of superbowl status!

Smoky Four Cheese Macaroni Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
I gave this 4 stars because I thought it was too time-consuming and I had to adjust the ingredients in the end to get it into the baking pan. I didn't have time to read reviews beforehand for insight, so I made it as directed. By the time I got all the cheeses in, the consistency was very gummy and almost impossible to stir in the pasta. I added more milk until the consistency was right. The end result was delicious--my kids loved it. The aroma while baking and out of the oven was so good. There are so many mac and cheese recipes to try, I don't know if I'll make this again for a while, but it is a delicious twist to the traditional.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
This was good and so easy! I'm giving it four stars because I followed the seasonings exactly and thought it could have been a little more flavorful. Next time, I might add a little more salt and the garlic and onion powders as others suggested. But this is a great base to which you can add and experiment for a lot of variations.

Honey Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Delicious! I made it on the stove after reading another review. I also added the 1/2 c. (lite) coconut milk and 1T flour per another suggestion. After tasting, added a little more honey. I served this with roasted potatoes, but it would have been perfect with jasmine rice. Next time!

Herbed Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
A hit with my son, 19! I had to use bone-in chicken breasts which were a little over 4 lbs. So, I adjusted seasonings. My grocery store also didn't have whipped garden veg. cream cheese, so I bought the regular and then whipped it with a little water to get the same texture first. I served with jasmine rice and broccoli for a hearty and very easy meal. I couldn't follow the recipe exactly, but you can tell when you are starting with a 5-star recipe!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
I LOVE this recipe and have made it for a casual, small dinner party and at our family vacation where 16 family members deemed it the best meal of the week! I tried it with both regular and no-boil lasagna and saw no difference, so that's the way I make it now. The way it is assembled, it comes out of the oven with a soft, golden topping and looks photo-ready! I also just made it with one pack of "Short-cuts" original chicken and you could not tell. Otherwise, I've followed the ingredients to a tee and I think this is a perfectly delicious recipe--thank you!

Phyllo Turnovers with Shrimp and Ricotta Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Thank you for the note to chop the shrimp! These are delicious and impressive. The only thing I did differently was in the cooking process. I cooked the shrimp with the onion/pepper mix before the rest of the ingredients. Then I added the ricotta. Finally the milk in which I had dissolved the flour. The filling actually looks pretty with the pink shrimp and I think another reviewer's suggestion to fill Phyllo cups with it would be something to try next. It would definitely show off the filling. This one is a keeper and thank you to MattyGit for all his experimenting to achieve this yummy appetizer!!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
This is a great baked mac and cheese, but I only gave it 4 stars because I did have to add more half and half, cheese and seasoning to adjust (50% more). My kids love breadcrumbs, so I took the last tablespoon of butter, mixed in panko breadcrumbs, sprinkled on top and broiled til golden at the end of the baking time. It looked delicious!

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
My family and I loved this! However, I tasted while cooking and intensified the seasonings, probably close to doubling the thyme, cayenne pepper and nutmeg. Also, for those who might not have the suggested cheese on-hand (like me), I used half gruyere and half colby jack and it worked out fine. I didn't like it when cooks rated a recipe high and then changed it, but it seems everyone does it and the "here's what I dids" are helpful.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I made this exactly as the recipe stated. I thought it was good, but not exceptional. It was picture-perfect--nice and golden on the top and the round shape was not a problem. I've read a few of the other reviews and I really can't see how any of those changes would have made it better. I would definitely not have cut out the sugar. Guess I just like mine sweet! I think I would look for another recipe next time, just to see what else is out there.

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
I did not read the reviews beforehand and made this exactly as specified. The bread turned out soggy and way too salty. I've had so many other versions that were so much better. I will not make this again.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
The first time I made bacon this way, everyone commented on how good it was! (they were all still sleeping when I made it, so they had no idea it was a different method). The big problem I had, however, was that cooking at 350 degrees in my oven took about 40 minutes which was discouraging. I have since upped the temp to 450 degrees and it still takes close to 15 minutes. In the end, this is the best way to make bacon. No more pan frying or microwaving which is akin to watching water boil! Time saving, delicious, five stars!
