Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
This did not sound appetizing to me, but I was living at my sister's and she wanted to try it. I made it and we all LOVED it. It is now a staple in both of our households. Better with real bacon crumbled on top (of course). We also marinated the chicken in the sauce beforehand.

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
This was delicious. Of course, my all-time favorite food is anything with a Mexican mole sauce. This tasted like mole. If you don't like mole, you probably won't like this. But, I thought it had amazing depth. I love the way you eat it and wonder, what was that flavor!?! I will make this again.

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This was really good. I did add more zucchini and I used chicken broth instead of stock. Other than that, I followed the rest of the recipe.It turned out creamy and very tasty. This would be a recipe worthy of entertaining with. For those that can't seem to get their risotto soft, just be patient and keep cooking (it usually takes about a half hour of stirring and slowly adding broth) . You may need more broth than the recipe calls for. It will get there, I promise!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
The texture was good. It made perfect looking pancakes, but they tasted SO salty! I even used unsalted butter. I would try these again without the salt and maybe they would be better.

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This made really good garlic bread. I may never buy pre-made garlic bread again. I scaled the recipe to 4 servings (just my husband and me), but it made more like 6 servings. I used light butter, omitted the garlic salt and it was just as delicious.

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
Great recipe to make an inexpensive cut of meat taste great. I used a packet of onion gravy instead of the onion soup. It made the gravy nice and thick, but was a little salty. The meat was very tender.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This is the best pasta I have tried on the site. It has so much flavor and is better than anything you can get at one of those chain Italian places. We've made this a few times and we haven't changed anything. It doesn't need any changes.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I used all of the exact ingredients, but I cooked it on the stovetop (covered), low for 3 hours. It turned out very tender and tasty. But, it was quite sweet. I served it with white rice and my husband had two helpings, so I will probably make this again, but with half the brown sugar.

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
These were great. They had a different sort of zip that we really enjoyed. We will keep these in rotation.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Without a doubt, the best lasagna I have ever made. I've made this many times and everyone always loves it. It's that sauce of yours that does it!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
I made this for my husband and I for a special Christmas Eve dinner. I thought this was pretty good but he thought it was wonderful and one of the best dishes I have made. I took other's advice and added a little Cajun seasoning to the chicken when I cooked it, other than that, I followed the instructions. I still prefer the Cajun Chicken Pasta from this site. And this makes more like 6-7 servings.

Cocktail Meatballs III

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2005
I used frozen meatballs and then mixed the ingredients together to make the sauce (including the onion soup). I just put it all together on the stove on low until heated through. They were very good. My husband had about 15 friends over and the guys even cheered a beer to me and the meatballs.

Double Chili Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2005
I just mixed all of the ingredients together and baked it instead of layering. It turned out great and it was very tasty. My husband had about 15 guys over and they all raved about the dip. No left overs with this one!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
Even with some major alterations - yum! I had pecan halves instead of cashews. I did everything else exact. I will keep this recipe in rotation!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
This was really good, although I didn't exactly follow the recipe. I had some left over pot roast so I used that meat and we are not fond of parsley so we used fresh cilantro instead and added a little cayenne pepper. I also used flour instead of cornstarch. Other than that, I followed the recipe and liked it. ;-)

Pot Roast in Foil

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
Pretty good. The meat became quite tender and the flavor was ok but next time I think I'll add some spices. This is comfort food - the way grandma made it - bland, but tasty.

Garlic Potatoes Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
Really not much flavor. I couldn't even taste the garlic. It needs something else to make it great. I'll try to add things to this starter dish.
