Turkey Red Grape Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2005
This was a very good recipe for a quick lunch or get together. I made this and a fresh loaf of Italian bread and it was great for a small gathering of Moms that I had over my house. I added curry powder to the mayonaise/sour cream mixture and it was great. I also only added enough dressing to coat the pasta and eveyrthing else. I reserved the rest in case the salad dried out while it was in the refridgerator. It never did, so I actually think next time I will cut the mayo mixture down. I used canneloni pasta because it is more elegant. Overall this was very tasty.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
"MMMMMMMM mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmm sorry I can't talk - too busy eating" That was a direct quote from my satisfied husband after making this surprisingly easy and DELICIOUS chicken. For years, I have been doing the flour, egg, bread crumb chicken that is fried in oil. This is a MILLION times better. I pounded out the chicken and found that since you then get a larger surface area, we needed more bread crumbs and parmesan (freshly grated as always). Also, because it's thinner when it's tenderized, it only took 20 minutes. PHENOMENAL!

A-Maize-ing Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2004
The very first thing I did was saute the onion in butter (not bacon drippings) along with half of a red pepper that I had leftover from fajitas. Then I added cubed sweet potatoes and sauteed that for about 5 minutes. Then I added in the half cup of water with a chicken bouillon cube. Brought that to a simmer for about 20 minutes. Then I added the corn, creamed corn, salt, pepper, and ONE cup of HALF AND HALF (not milk). It tasted bland so to it I added about 4 dashes of hot sauce and 2 teaspoons creole seasoning. It was almost perfect . . . but not quite. I remembered the best corn chowder I ever had - had a lot of cheese in it. So, I shredded a combination of colby, monterey jack, and fontina cheese that I had - about 1 1/2 cups and slowly stirred that in. (You can use just a mexican blend of shredded cheese found at any grocery store too!) IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I mean the most perfect thing I have made from this web site! My husband who isn't ever excited about any recipe because he isn't a big food critic totally loved it! So basically the changes were this: Sweet Potato (although I doubt this had any impact on it), added red pepper to saute, half and half instead of regular milk (1 cup instead of 2), hot sauce, creole seasoning, and grated cheese.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2003
This was an excellent recipe. I had been making one caramel corn recipe from a friend but it never got as crunchy as I like it, maybe because it had cream of tartar - who knows. Anyway - this was great. The only modification that I added was to use a bit more salt. I couldn't taste any salt when it was done so I sprinkled a little over it all. A good idea that I came up with was to open a paper grocery bag and lay it on my counter. I took the warm caramel corn and spread it out on the bag and used a spatula on it's side to break up all the pieces. Thanks Brian.

No-Fuss Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2003
This recipe was really good! I gave it a 4 stars because my husband thought it was a 3 and I thought it was a 5, so I averaged out. The only reason why he thought it was a 3 was because he wished it was less sweet and more spicy - he likes 5 alarm chili type of spicy. I thought it had an EXCELLENT sassy and bold flavor. Thanks for this recipe, it will definitely stay in our cooking repertoire.

Chicken Supreme III

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
My husband liked this recipe but then again, he was brought up on casseroles and hot dishes. I was looking for a tasty casserole and this is more comfort food. It was OK to me and I will make it again for my husband but I like something with more kick.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
Although I am sure this recipe is a heart-attack in waiting, what really good food isn't? This came out DELICIOUS and my husband and I both can't wait to have it again. Thanks for sharing Rebecca!

Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
I am not a big soup person, nor is my husband but I was feeling homey and wanted a comfort food on this cold day. The soup turned out wonderful. I added tortellini instead of the other pasta because I thought it complemented the sausage. I also made sure to cook the tortellini completely so it didn't steal the moisture from the broth. My mother in law was over for dinner and she too enjoyed it. P.S. I didn't have any red wine so I skipped that and I think it tasted just fine.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2003
This recipe was DELICIOUS! I admit it was a bit sweet which took from the apple flavor, so next time I will make the white sugar 1/4 cup or less. Also - I halfed the first part of the recipe so it would fit in my 9x9 square pan. I would make the topping for so many other things - I was thinking it would be GREAT with a sweet potatoe casserole for Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us (my old apple crisp recipe was just apples covered in a brown sugar/butter/oats mixture).

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
This recipe was delicious. It sure did make a lot though. I greased and filled one roll pan and gave it to a friend so she could bake it and have that wonderful smell in her house also. Variations: The only thing I did to change this was sprinkle brown sugar on top of each loaf. Excellent - and this was my first time making pumpkin anything!

Scrumptious Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2003
This was a terrific recipe for using minimal ingredients. Here's what I did to make it easy. I cut the recipe in half and it was more than enough for the 3 of us. That meant, I only used one sweet potatoe and I cubed it before boiling it so I was able to have mashed sweet potato in less than 15 minutes. Also, I added a little orange peel zest to the mixture. I put the entire thing in a glass pie plate and it made the presentation beautiful. The topping crunched up perfectly and this was easy to make while managing my main course.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2003
This was an excellent home made recipe for brownies. I always buy the boxed Duncan Hines Fudge Brownies. Changes: I would double this recipe (although I didn't this time, I will in the future). For an 8x8 square pan, the brownies are really flat. Also, I didn't have any honey on hand for the frosting so I used a tablespoon of cream cheese and it worked perfectly - helped make it creamier. All around good job with this one - everyone likes it.

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2003
This recipe was EXCELLENT. I took the advice of others and doubles the dressing but I used about 3/4 of it the night that I made the salad and the last 1/4 before I brought the dish to a picnic. Also, I used dried cranberries because I think they are tangier than the raisins and the color is more vibrant. Beautiful dish - but mostly, tasty Tasty TASTY!

Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
The recipe and reviews sounded great and I cook ALL the time, but this recipe wasn't that great. I imagine it would be MUCH better if it was redipped in the soy sauce after dredging through the flour mixture and then sauteed in a pan not baked - it really dried out the chicken. I will try that next time.

Easy Sausage Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2003
These are SUPER easy and really good. If you think there is too much baking mix, simply use a cookie sheet to mix all the ingredients together, the pound it out into a thin layer and it should be moist again to absorb more mix. I usually do this about 5 times and it soaks up all the mix and the kneading of the sausage helps soften it up also. Great for parties, serve with a mustard dipping sauce and put toothpicks with them!
