Apricot Chicken Provencal

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
This recipe was great! Of course I made a couple modifications, but nothing crazy. I used an extra clove of garlic when sauteing the chicken (I also used bone in half chicken breasts). Then after I removed the chicken, I scraped most of the browned garlic out of the pan thne I added cubed red potatoes another clove a garlic, a little more oil and herbs, salt, pepper. After they browned a bit I added them to the chicken pan and put them in the over. For the glaze, I decided I wanted onions in it to give it a little more savory, so I caramelized thinly sliced sweet vidalia onions in the same chicken pan before adding the other ingredients. Also, I didn't have enough apricot preserves (only 1/3 cup) so I added 1/3 cup of orange juice, along with the preserves and apricots. It was WONDERFUL. The chicken was still juicy when it came out of the oven in about 30 mins (they were big halves) and the glaze was perfection!! I can't wait to make this again!!!

Buttery Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
I liked this recipe because it's simple and because it calls for cooking the craberries on the stove top. This makes for shorter oven time and lessens the chance of over cooking the pie crust which sometimes happens. I also added about 2-3 cups of cut apples to the filling after the cranberries cooked and some cinnamon and it turned out fabulous! If you have a deep pie dish I recommend adding something as the recipe amount is not enough to properly fill a deep dish. Great find!

Sweet Potato Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
As sweet potato pies go it's OK. You might think with all the butter it's sure to taste amazing, but I've made better recipes before with less butter and they tasted just as good, some even better. Don't egt me wrong it tastes good, but if you want to be health concious there's plenty more spp recipes that are better. May be butter overload.
