Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
If I could give this recipe 50 stars, I would!!! FANTASTIC dish. I recommend using the sun-dried tomatoes in oil in a jar, then use that oil to saute the garlic, onions, and mushrooms (additions added by me). Use one pan and cook the chicken in the sauce as it is reducing. You absolutely must double this recipe in order to have enough. I also added capers near the end and that was great. Wonderful, tasty, and very gourmet!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
GREAT potato salad! I recommend cutting the potatoes into bite-sized chunks before boiling them. I used Miracle Whip light instead of Mayo. I added about a 1/4 cup dijon mustard, as well as a few dashes of dill. Also, if you use a sweet onion and chop it fine, it becomes a perfect addition without being overpowering. We were out of eggs but this potato salad was so tasty, the eggs were not missed. Tasty stuff!!!

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
Good stuff! As others suggested I doubled the recipe and used apple vinegar instead of white vinegar. My husband (who lived in Germany) declared it authentic! I recommend that you use red potatoes for this dish - with the skins on. Great with grilled brats!

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
Fantastic!!! I added about 3 tbs of peanut butter and about a cup of chopped peanuts, along with a bag of stir-fry veggies and a dash or two of crushed red pepper for a little kick. Tossed it all with steamed white rice and then let it sit for a little while to absorb. Good stuff!!!

Yakisoba Chicken

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
I used traditional tonkatsu (yakisoba) sauce for this instead of making the sauce from scratch and it was awesome - made by Kikkoman and found at my regular grocery store. I also added fresh grated ginger, minced garlic, and a few dashes of soy sauce instead of a whole 1/2 cup. For extra veggies we threw in bean sprouts and mushrooms. We added a dash of crushed red pepper for a little kick - this was very tasty and cooked nicely in my wok! Try the tonkatsu sauce - it will definitely give you the yakisoba flavor you are looking for!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
This is a good foundation for fried rice. Be SURE to use sesame oil - not regular oil - since that is one of the basic flavors of Chinese cooking. Add garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, and salt and pepper. Also - make sure that your rice is cooled before you mix it in, otherwise it will become a think, starchy mess. If you want a sweeter flavor, add some teriyaki or stir-fry sauce to taste. Use a wok! This is a great recipe to have fun with.

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
This was sooo tasty! I used 2 cans of condensed soup and sauteed the onions with the beef. I also mixed some cheese (used a Mexican blend) into the layers, and added onion powder. To speed up the cooking process I baked it at 375 for 20 minutes, then turned it back to 350 for the rest of the hour, and it came out perfectly. Whole family loved it! Next time I will add mushrooms.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
GREAT recipe - my husband declared them the best ones yet! If you like them crunchy, leave them out for a while after cooling.

Texas Cowboy Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
Very, very good - I cut the recipe in half, but still used more onion, garlic, beans, and potatoes than the recipe called for. I added more chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder as well. Tasted awesome when served with cornbread - leftovers should be yummy!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
WOW - best vodka cream sauce EVER! We doubled the recipe for the sauce and used steamed shrimp instead of sausage, and fettucine instead of penne. Also used 1/4 of the red pepper called for so that the kids could eat it. This dish was fabulous and I will never buy this sauce in a jar again!

Chicken and Bacon Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
This was a very tasty soup that my whole family gobbled up. I absolutely did not add any additional salt since I felt that the bacon and broth provided all the saltiness needed. I also added a bit more chicken broth in order to cover the vegetables better while they cooked. Great hearty soup on a cold winter day - be sure to have some crusty bread on the side to go with it!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
Fabulous, wonderful recipe! Used 1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream, and sauteed 3 diced cloves of garlic in a little olive oil, then mixed with chopped marinated artichokes. Poured over chicken, baked for 30 minutes, then tossed it all with penne pasta and spinach- it was AWESOME and my husband simply loved it. This is going to be a favorite at my house. :) Thanks!

Chocolate Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
Holy cow- these were sooooooo decadent. I used a smaller pan to bake them in, which made them a bit thicker. I also left out the nuts since my kids don't like them. We were amazed at the gooey goodness that came out of the oven. It definitely does take them awhile to firm up but it's worth the wait!

Ground Beef Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
This was GOOD! I added a bit more water, and a lot more Italian seasoning- specifically oregano, basil, and garlic powder. It was a very fragant, hearty stew and I will make this again. :)

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
I loved it! However, I must confess that I did not even attempt to create a lattice crust since I was pressed for time- I used one can of buttermilk biscuits that peeled apart in layers and covered the top of the whole pie. I also used a combo of cream of celery soup and cream of chicken soup. My family really enjoyed it and everyone had seconds. The french fried onions definitely supplied the extra flavor and texture. Thanks for the great recipe!

Creamed Turkey with Bow Ties

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
Great recipe for leftover turkey- my family enjoyed this tremendously. I used a bag of mixed veggies instead of the mushrooms and carrots and everyone loved it. Makes a light yet flavorful sauce. Thanks!

Soy Ginger Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
This was fabulous- we used real garlic and made a sauce from the marinade with cornstarch. Cook the marinade down a bit and then add a little cornstarch- this is wonderful poured on top of the salmon. We had jasmine rice and steamed asparagus on the side and everyone ate tons of it- be sure to have plenty of salmon on hand! We doubled this recipe to accommodate 2.5 lbs of salmon. This recipe will not disappoint!

Dump Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
This was surprisingly good, and VERY sweet- I might cut back on the sugar next time. I used a can of strawberry pie filling and extra cinnamon, and it was so moist and sweet it did not need icing. A great recipe to experiment with!

Chicken or Turkey Crepes with Tarragon

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
This came out quite well- although I recommend adding a lot more tarragon- maybe twice the amount, plus dashes of salt and pepper and onion powder. We love onions here so I used about 1/2 cup of finely diced onions. I also ended up baking the dish for 30 minutes (that's when it got nice and bubbly). Even though it was a lot of work, I really enjoyed putting a different kind of dish on the table, and everyone liked it alot. I served it with green beans almondine on the side. Enjoy! :)
