Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I finally found a truly easy, truly tasty chicken dish!! My whole family liked it. I made these changes: I cut the breast halves in thirds, put them with the salad dressing in the crock pot and cooked on HI for about five hours. Also, I did not shred the chicken. I used hot chicken broth, and I added the cream cheese mixture to the crock pot and left it on high for only about thirty minutes. It was great and so, so easy!

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I added about a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and I substituted semisweet chocolate chips for the raisins. They were great!!

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
This was wonderful. I did make a couple of changes, though. I used asian chili sauce instead of chili paste, and I used two teaspoons of it since I didn't know how hot it would be. I left out the crushed red pepper. Also, I cooked the broccoli in less water and for a shorter time than the recipe directs, and it was perfect. I'll be making this often!

Summer Squash Casserole with Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
Very good. I thought it seemed like a small amount for 8-10 servings, but it is very rich so it goes a long way.

Good Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
Great pie!! It reminded me a lot of the other recipe I have that uses sweetened condensed milk and unsweetened chocolate. But THIS pie is way cheaper and it's so easy to make! A great find!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2004
I didn't have a roast, but I did have about 4 pounds of ground beef. So I browned the meat, drained it, and put it in the refrigerator until the next morning. Then I combined the meat with the rest of the ingredients and left it all (plus about 1/2 cup water) in the crockpot on HI for about five hours. It could have gone for 4 hours, probably. It made wonderful Sloppy Joes for lunch after church. It's going to be a staple around my house from now on!

Tex-Mex Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
My husband, who loves Mexican food, went on and on about this soup. He couldn't get enough of it! I, who like Mexican food, thought it was very good, though just a tad too hot for my taste.

Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
Oooh, this is good! Since I had no dill pickle relish, I added chutney, and since I had no green onions, I chopped up regular onion instead. I cut the chicken into one inch pieces, which was really too big, I think. Smaller pieces of chicken can take in the flavor of the salad more readily.

Bean and Bacon Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2014
Mmmm! Wonderful! I only had half the bacon called for, but it was still great. Next time I think I might add more cabbage; there's plenty of dressing for it.

Chocolate Cream Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
The best pudding I've ever tasted! You do need to be careful in adding the egg yolks, which the recipe does not tell you, by adding a little bit of the hot pudding at a time (stirring vigorously) to the egg yolks until the eggs yolk/pudding mixture is warm, then adding it all to the hot pudding. I used two parts half and half and one part skim milk for milk it called for. Also, I added high quality vanilla from the Dominican Republic, which gave it a slight coconutty flavor. It was unbelievably good.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
I found that the cooking time was too long, so I would advise using a meat thermometer and check the temperature five or ten minutes after adding the wine and other ingredients. (Pork should be about 145 degrees, I think.) I didn't have wine, so I used 1/4 cup white wine vinegar with 1/4 cup water instead. Also, I added a couple of three-inch pieces of fresh rosemary instead of ground. Wonderful recipe!

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
Really good! I used spinach since I had no kale, and it worked well. Also, I had no garlic salt, so I used 1 teaspoon minced garlic and a little more than 3/4 teaspoon salt. Next time, maybe I'll have the mushrooms and can add them!

Chicken Salad Al La Barbara

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2003
Good, good, good! I didn't have as much fruit as the recipe called for. I can imagine that it would be REALLY good with all the fruit!

Mary's Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I did not have a pan big enough to do a water bath, so I braved it without one. Alas, my cheesecake cracked, but when the pieces were cut, who could tell? It was delicious, and I received many compliments on it!

Spaghetti With Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I loved this. I did increase the sugar since I like a sweeter sauce, and I increased the oregano and basil a lot. I make this in huge batches and keep it in the refrigerator for spaghetti, pizza, and on heavily toasted, thick slices of homemade whole wheat bread, with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top--that's our favorite.

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
My whole family loved this. I used about 2/3 the amount of butter called for, and it still tasted nice and rich. I think I'll double the recipe every time I make it so we can have plenty of leftovers!

Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: May 21, 2004
I liked this one a lot. I used brown rice, cooking it about 40 minutes. Also, the chilis are a must, I think, for this recipe. Without them it might be a bit bland. It only took about 30 minutes in the oven, not an hour, as the "cook time" says.

Israeli Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
I am giving this five stars because everyone at the pot luck I took it to raved about it. It was not my cup of tea. But I will say that the amount of garlic (that seemed like it would be way too much) was fine. Maybe a little too salty...but maybe not!

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Oh, this was good. Really easy, too! As another person recommended, I cut the sugar and the cream cheese approximately in half. It is very rich.
