Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Good basic recipe that is outstanding with a few tweaks... I doubled the ingredients and made a big batch as I like to eat it all week long. For the doubled batch, I use 4 large chicken breasts(about 2 pounds worth) that I grill with Italian Seasoning. I double, if not triple the garlic. Fresh ingredients are key. Fresh tomatoes, fresh garlic, fresh basil, fresh parmesan make this dish killer! My "secret" is to add a diced red bell pepper and about half a pound of white mushrooms to the sauce. When making the sauce, I add a healthy splash of red wine to the mixture and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes to make it slightly more "saucy" and let the tomatoes become very tender. Plate and top with a shower of fresh parmesan... DELICIOUS!

Crock Pot Pinto Bean Bonanza

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
The basic recipe you see here is a good start. I increased the Kielbasa to a full pound, substituted the 1/2 cup of onion flakes for a large, chopped onion, chopped red bell pepper(in addition to the green) and doubled the bacon yet omitted the bacon grease. In a hot pan, I browned the Kielbasa, onion and chopped green and red bell pepper before adding to the crock pot. I also substituted 2 large chopped jalapenos in place of the pickled ones. I also omitted the rice and served it in large bowls with green onions and a heap of shredded pepper jack cheese. Makes a killer dinner on a cold evening!

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Ive made this a few times now, each with a slight variation. Follow the exact recipe and i give it 4 stars. A couple changes and its a 5 star dish! My 5 star rendition...used seasoned breadcrumbs and bump it up to 2/3 cup...add a tablespoon or two more of olive oil to compensate for the additional breadcrumbs. If you dont mind a few extra calories, throw in about 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese with the breadcrumbs. Use red skinned potatoes...they have a more more desirable texture and a sweeter flavor that complements the zucchini much better. Step up the Bell Pepper just a little too...either one large one or two smaller ones. I like to add one green and one red for some extra variety. After the potatoes are tender, i put the entire dish in the broiler for a minute or two to give everything a nice, even browning which gives it a VERY delicious crispy outside....just watch it will burn REALLY fast if you let it! You just want a nice, even golden browning across the entire dish. Toss and serve.
