Chicken Spectacular

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2003
This was good - but I made a few changes -- I only had Uncle Ben's Wild Rice, so I used that with just a little of the seasoning mix it comes with. Also - I sauteed the chicken with onion in olive oil so onion wasn't as powerful. I reduced the Mayonaise to only about three tablespoons - as it adds less fat, and we don't like to taste too much of it in casserole recipes. At the end, I sprinkled Crispy Onions on top (the kind that you use on Green Bean Casserole - was a nice flavorful addition!)

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Excellent - but a LOT OF WORK!!! I had not made a beef tenderloin before - so stressed about it a bit.... I think that I could have cooked it a little longer. This was very RED at 127 degrees. That was Med. Rare in the recipe - but really felt it looked very rare to our family that likes steak at Medium. This was so tender- and the gravy/sauce was fantastic!!!

Excellent! I made this sauce to go with a chicken enchilada recipe found on this site - and my family devoured it! My husband said he thought I should add it to the "rotation"!

Easy Taco Pizza

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
I did change it a little ... I used a pre-baked thin pizza crust so that made it really easy! I put down a mild La Victoria salsa for the pizza sauce. I used a pound of ground beef with a bit of onion and taco seasoning packet for the meat. I crunched up tostitos corn chips to go on top of that layer. I used a weight watchers mexican cheese mix for the next layer (even though I never like using lowfat ANYTHING!) and added the sliced black olives on top of that. After baking, and as I served it - I topped it with shredded lettuce, and diced red pepper and avacado. (I was out of tomato, and the red pepper added great color and FLAVOR!) My entire family LOVED it!

Shrimp Scampi V

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
Delicious! I just made this and my family are every bite! My husband asked me to add this to the regular "rotation". I made it with only three cloves of garlic and added a little garlic salt as it cooked. I also put a little fresh squeezed lemon juice over the pasta in it's last couple of minutes of cooking. Great Dish!

Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
A quote from my husband -- "Ridiculously GOOD!" I had to size the recipe down to 6 servings -- and now we wish we would have doubled it! It was very good. I browned ours in a small amount of olive oil. I also did not have the seafood seasoning it called for - so I used Lawry's seasoned salt, a little ground pepper and a dash of garlic salt. YUMMY!

Taco Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I used one lb of ground beef that I browned with 1/4 diced onion. Instead of baked beans, I used 1 can of black beans. Topped burgers with diced tomato, lettuce and grated cheddar cheese. Just like a taco on a burger bun! Nice change!

Orange and Maple Glazed Turkey

My family raved and my husband said I redeemed my turkey cooking ability since my thanksgiving turkey was a flop! I only used a 7 lb breast with this recipe, but it was great! The gravy was delicious as well!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
My family says this is a "keeper"! Have to say I followed just about exactly - but I used deli mustard that had chunky mustard seeds in it, and worchestershire sauce for the steak sauce. I used chicken breast tenders, and soaked them in the sauce for about an hour in the fridge before grilling. Served with wild rice, corn on the cob and green beans. Delish!

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
This is a keeper! My family of 5 all loved it! A key ingredient were the FRESHLY GROWN tomatoes of SUMMER! I also seasoned the chicken as it cooked with a little garlic salt and Lawry's seasoning. I added a little diced green pepper with the green onion - and cut down on the onion. The green and red color with the cheddar cheese make a nice presentation! I was afraid of the ranch - and may have gone less than what recipe called for -- but WOW -- it was a nice touch for flavor!

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
WOW! This is a KEEPER! I made one small mistake in leaving out the mustard, but realized it about 10 min. after is was in the refridgerator - I added the mustard to the bowl of marinating ingredients, and mixed it up well. This was so delicious - my family could not get enough!

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
Delicious! I only had soy sauce on hand - so used about 1 and a half tablespoons plus just about a 1/2 teaspoon of fine sugar for my sauce. The toasted sesame seeds add a great flavor! This is a keeper!
