Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
My 11-year-old daughter made this marinade while I was at work, and we poured it over the chicken breast before we left for soccer practice. Two and a half hours later, it was ready for the grill. This was so easy and yielded tender, juicy, and flavorful chicken. The spices were just right. I didn't use the liquid smoke. This is one for the recipe box!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
I wouldn't change a thing. This is a tender and flaky classic pie crust. The trick is to avoid handling it too much. Stir in the icy cold water just until the flour is moistened enough to stick together and you'll get a perfect crust every time. TO BAKE EMPTY PIE SHELL: Prick bottom of crust thoroughly with fork (40 to 50 times). Bake in lower third of over at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes,.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
This was my first "from scratch" lemon pie, and I can't believe how easy it was! My 9-year-old niece and I made this for my father. It turned out great. We added 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar to the meringue, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Dad couldn't wait for it to cool, but thought it was great, even warm. I'll make this again. Maybe even tomorrow! My kids will be thrilled to have one of their own.

Crispy Rice Candy

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
So easy and soooo good! I was short on time, so I decided to make this quick treat for a chairty dessert raffle at work. They were so simple to make and looked fantastic in cellophane treat bags. The creamy combination of peanut butter and white chocolate is addictive, but the crispy cereal, salty peanuts, and chewy marshmallows put them over the top. These little candies are definitely going to make an appearance on my holiday cookie trays.

Turkey Bacon Avocado Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Great sandwich! I needed something to throw togeter quickly after a late ballgame and this fit the bill nicely. I had everything on hand. This was a nice change of pace from an everyday sandwich.

Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This was a hit at our Memorial Day cookout. The pie set up nicely and was absolutely gorgeous. I used a prepared shortbread crust, and I'll definitely do that again next time. I chopped the strawberries to fill the pie shell and arranged sliced strawberries in a pinwheel pattern on top. I did follow another reviewer's suggestion by using 1/2 cup sugar and 1-1/2 cups water. Perfect!

Spoiled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I had never made homemade barbecue sauce before> This recipe was a good starting point. I added molasses, garlic, onion powder, black pepper, and a pinch of cayenne. I was out of cider vinegar, so I used white vinegar. I'll use cider vinegar next time around. I'm reviewing the sauce only, since I braised my ribs in the oven and finished them on the grill. Be sure to let the sauce simmer until it's nice and thick.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
This is my absolute favorite way to make jalapeno poppers. So easy and so much more flavor than the breaded and fried variety. I like to sprinkle a little parmeasn/romano blend on top of the cream cheese for a little extra flavor. I know I'll make these many, many times.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
A great stroganoff recipe with a little zip. I didn't think it was a lot of work at all. Once the meat is cut and trimmed of fat, it's smooth sailling. I used yellow onions instead of green and fresh mushrooms in place of canned. I'll add garlic next time around. The flavor was phenomenal and the meat was tender. My family gobbled up every morsel. I'll make this again.

Barbecued Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This was okay. I cooked the beef in the crockpot on low all day. I thickened the sauce on the stovetop, but ended up adding bottled barbecue sauce. This should be called "Shredded Beef Sandwiches", as they are definitely NOT barbecued. I suggest using crushed tomatoes rather than diced, omitting the extra water, and swapping brown sugar or molasses for white sugar. A little mustard wouldn't hurt, either.

Grilled Pizza

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Loved this!! I used rapid rise yeast because pizza crust yeast wasn't available locally. If you're in a real hurry, grab some premade crusts from the supermarket and jump right in. If you're like me, however, you'll find that the crust is so easy that you may not need to buy frozen dough prepared crusts, or pizza crust mix again. The crust recipe is suitable for both the grill and the oven. The family really enjoyed assembling their own pizzas with the toppings that I provided. The little pies were ready in a flash and didn't stick at all. The dough circles turned to ovals when I picked them up, so I quickly learned to stretch the sides back out into circles as I laid them on the grill. I can't wait to try this again. If I feel brave enough, I might make these for my son's poolside birthday party this summer.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I threw the ingredients for this hearty soup into the crockpot last night and it was ready to pack for a healthy and filling lunch today. I prefer thick soups, so the consistency was perfect for my taste. The spices added a nice flavor, though I did add a half teaspoon of salt. This recipe could be easily adapted for ingredients on hand.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I thought these were a little bland, but they were well-received at my party. I followed the recipe, but added more bacon pieces after tasting the filling. Even so, I still couldn't taste the bacon in the finished product. I used panko bread crumbs for extra crunch. I only rolled them in the bread crumbs once, as I ran out of time. I couldn't bring myself to fry them, so I baked them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Reduced fat cream cheese or neufchatel works well in this recipe.

Delicious Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Bland, but edible. The chicken stock is unecessary and makes the dish too runny. I'd leave it out, double the rice, add a veggie (peas, green beans, or broccoli), and maybe some herbs (basil, rosemary, or marjoram). This isn't bad, really, but it's just a bit "blah".

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
I cut the sugar in half and this was still far too sweet. Maybe this recipe is "classic" in other areas, but it's definitely not the norm for my area of Virginia. The mustard was interesting, but I'd cut it in half *IF* I dared to try this recipe again. I added tomatoes, as I have never had macaroni salad without them. I also added diced cucumbers and a little more pepper. I hope it will mellow a bit over night. I'm not sure if I have the nerve to serve this to my guests. It's unlike any macaroni salad I've tried around these parts...

Quinoa Salad with Dried Fruit and Nuts

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I had never tried quinoa before, but found that I enjoyed this very much. I enjoyed this salad several times this week. This is a very versatile recipe that can be altered to work with the ingredients you have on hand. I have skipped the celery because I didn't have it, subbed sweet onion for the green onions (didn't have those either), added dried cranberries and toasted slivered almonds instead of raisins and pecans. I've never added the sesame oil because I can't find it in my little grocery store. Of all the changes I've made, I would never, ever omit the cilantro! It really makes the dish. As another reviewer mentioned, the flavor is much, much better the next day.

Chicken Paprikash

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I was worried that my picky family would dislike this dish, but it earned five stars all around. I was thrilled to see my youngest and pickiest eater gobble up three helpings! This wasvery simple to prepare, though I managed to accumulate an impressive stack of dirty dishes in the process! I used boneless, skinless chicken breast and fat free sour cream. I subbed 2 tablespoons of olive oil for butter when browning the chicken. I do agree with the reviewers who suggested making the dumplings very small. Fantastic!

Cowboy Skillet Casserole

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
This is the perfect recipe for a simple weeknight meal. I added a can of corn as suggested by other reviewers. The family devoured this easy entree!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Say goodbye to dry, tough pork chops! This recipe was less time-consuming than I thought and resulted in tasty, melt-in-your mouth chops that the whole family enjoyed. I followed the recipe for the breading and gravy, but used 8 boneless pork chops instead of 6 bone-in chops. There was more than enough sauce to cover the extra cuts of meat. I don't always have white cooking wine on hand, but I think that chicken broth would be a great substitution. Superb!

Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Works every time! This is very similar to the method recommended by the American Egg Board. The egg board recommends 12 minutes for medium eggs, 15 minutes for large eggs, and 18 minutes for extra large eggs. Be sure to allow the water to come to a FULL, ROLLING BOIL before taking them off of the burner. Also, they may not cook all the way through if you don't cover the pan after removing it from the heat. allowing them to boil for too long will cause a green ring around the yolk, which won't hurt you but sure doesn't look appetizing. :)
