Pineapple Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2005
This pie was a hit at Christmas with the relatives. As others have warned, don't use the deep dish pie shells. This recipe makes enough filling for the regular size pie crusts.

Onion Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Never made a quiche before, but this one turned out great. It's so quick and easy that I'm sure I'll be making it again soon. You'll want to add some salt, pepper or other seasoning to the egg mixture to bring out the flavor. I made a few additions and substitutions based on what I had on hand. This recipe lends itself to that. Instead of heavy cream, I used some canned evaporated milk, and added a fourth egg as others have suggested. To season, I mixed in a tablespoon of onion soup mix and some black pepper in with the eggs. I used a blend of cheddar and monterey jack cheese since I didn't have any swiss. The texture was spot on, and it received a thumbs up from my husband.

Baked Split Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
I made the recipe exactly as written, and it exceeded my expectations. The meat was moist and flavorful, and tasted great. This will be my go-to recipe for bone-in chicken breasts from now on.

Sour Cream Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I would give this recipe six stars if I could. The paprika and sour cream in the rich, creamy sauce wake up boneless skinless chicken breasts. I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious this easy to prepare dish was. To tenderize the chicken before cooking, I cut the breasts in half lengthwise and pounded them a bit between two sheets of plastic wrap. And because I wanted smaller pieces, I cut the pounded breast pieces in two. I seasoned the breast pieces with a little seasoned salt before browning them in the skillet. I followed the other directions to the letter, except I mixed in a tbsp of cornstarch instead of flour in to the sour cream. This dish exceed my expectations. I served the chicken and sauce with mashed potatoes, but this would also be good over egg noodles.

Classic Cherries Jubilee

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
This is a delicious dessert with the added drama of the flambe. I had some cherries in the fridge and didn't know what to do with them and decided to give this a try. Most of the ingredients I had on hand except for the cherry extract. I couldn't find that at my grocery store so I used almond extract instead. The flambe effect was a big hit, and it tasted delicious over vanilla ice cream. I'll be making this again when I have a dinner party for the presentation alone.

Quinoa Pilaf

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
This dish was just okay. I rinsed the quinoa and followed the recipe as printed, but it turned out bland. I seasoned it with salt and pepper before serving, but I couldn't seem to bring out a good flavor. I won't be making this again.

Baked Kielbasa and Potatoes in Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
I didn't like this dish at all. The potatoes had an odd texture, and the sauce wasn't very good either. I won't be making this again.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This turned out exactly as I had hoped. The icing tastes delicious, and it dries just enough to where you can stack the cookies without them sticking together. I used butter flavored Crisco, and was happy with the result. I can finally make powdered sugar icing!

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Great dish! This turned out exactly as I had hoped -- both flavor and texture wise. I followed the recipe as written, and it came out of the oven virtually perfect. I cooked it the day before Thanksgiving and warmed it up from refrigerated the next day.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Delicious. I cooked the squash using a microwave steam bag and sauteed the onions in some olive oil. For the cheese, I used a mixture of grated cheddar and mozzarella. It was a hit with my husband.

Steamed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Very good. The mashed steamed garlic is the secret ingredient of this dish. I used a dash of Italian season on the zucchini before I placed it in the steamer. And, I also sprinkled a little bit of salt and pepper on the finished dish.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Best tasting guacamole I've ever made. My guests gobbled it up. The recipe makes a nice amount, but it went so fast that I'll make two batches next time. I didn't make any changes or substitutions, and it turned out perfectly.

Vegetarian Refried Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
This tasted amazing. I used a batch of pinto beans we had cooked the day before, and blended the other ingredients in the Vitamix to a paste. You could probably use a blender. Then I added the mixture to the beans and let the whole thing cook for about 45 mins or so. Mashed the beans, seasoned with salt and then was ready to serve. Delicious!

Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
This dish turned out delicious. I don't eat meat, so I substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth and Trader Joe's Soy Nuggets for the chicken. We ate a good bit of it as our main dish as dinner, and I had enough to take to work the next day. It is quite spicy, but the flavor is savory and balanced.

Strawberry Pie VI

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This pie tasted wonderful, and was a hit at my house. This is a keeper for the recipe box. Instead of making it with sliced strawberries, I cut the berries into cubes and mixed them in with the filling. The effect was a bit of fresh strawberry in every bite.

Holiday Red Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
I didn't enjoy this recipe. It tasted like Hawaiian Punch with carbonation and pineapple juice added in.

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This turned out great. I cooked some garlic along with the onion, and added a little white wine to the broth after it was reduced. It got rave reviews at the table.

Strawberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
The crust was a little cakey for my taste, but the flavor was good. But I'm still on the lookout for the perfect strawberry cobbler recipe.

Kentucky Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
I've had tastier marinades. It turned out kind of bland, and the chicken was not as tender as I was hoping. It seemed like there was a missing ingredient that would have amp'd up the flavor.

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
The fajitas had terrific flavor and were easy to make. I made the recipe as is, but left out the bell pepper. I marinated the chicken for about a half hour, and it turned out great. When I cooked the chicken, I added a little of the marinating liquid to reduce in the skillet. We served it with warm corn tortillas and bottled green tomatillo salsa. Delicious!
