Super Summer Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Outstanding and super easy to make. We served it as a salsa with chips and as a salsa for tacos and tostadas. I switched no calorie sweetner for the sugar and you can't thell the difference. Excellent Recipe. Thanks for the post.

Chicken Crunch

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER, as Guy Fieri would say. This is absolutely delicious and sooooo easy for a hearty weeknight dinner. I made the following changes as suggested by others: - Sauteed diced chicken breast in a little butter and added garlic powder (not garlic salt) and little salt. I used four good sized b/s breasts. - I doubled the sauce (used LIGHT sour cream) and then mixed the sauce mixture with the cooked chicken pieces and then poured the entire mixture in a 9 X 11 glass casserole dish. This size worked good, but would be way too big if you don't double the sauce and only use two breasts as the recipe calls for. - I did NOT double the cracker topping and I mixed the crushed crackers with the melted butter to create the toping to sprinkle over instead of sprinking the crackers and dabbing butter over the top. Made it really easy. -Cooked uncovered 35 minutes at 350 and got perfection. I served over slightly buttered and slightly salted egg noodles as others suggested. I think next time I'll try the white rice as we are "rice" sort of folks moreso than egg noodles. It was great with the egg noodles though. It is rich so I served the casserole with the sauce (definitely gald I made extra sauce) over the noodles and a side of steamed broccoli. Will defintely make this again. DEFINITELY. Thanks Kim for the post.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Really really good. I did put extra seasoning on the pork chops as suggested and it turned out wonderful. I found thinner boneless pork chops on sale so I used them and it turned out wonderfully and super tender so just know you can use boneless and smaller chops. Thanks for the post.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Home run. I did make a few changes as I'm on a diet and am diabetic so wanted to make it a little friendlier for me to eat. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef. I also added a large can of diced tomatoes with juice in addition to the tomato sauce. And finally, I threw in an extra can of kidney beans to up the protein content and added about two tablespoons of minced garlic. We love garlic. Thanks for the post. This is a keeper.

Chicken Noodle Salad with Peanut-Ginger Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I took this to party today and it went over very well. I did cut back on the red pepper flakes since there was kids at the party and not everyone likees heat. I did find it a bit too "salty/soy saucy" so I did add probably double the broth and it was great. I also doubled the sauce as suggested and then tossed it with about 3/4 of the sauce and put the rest in a small bowel next to it for those that wanted more. I did sprinkle with chopped peanuts, but also put a small bowel with extra for those that wanted to sprinkle more on. Great recipe and I can easily see using the dressing on chicken or other things as others have suggested. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper.

Maple Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
HEAVENLY!!! The only change I made was to double the topping because it is that good. It was a huge hit at Thanksgiving. Definitely a keeper. I used granny smiths by the way. I will be making this regularly as it's so easy to make and the results are wonderful

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Just a little to dry for me. I followed the recipes as written. Major bummer. I was looking forward to adding these to my regular dinners because of the low carbs, but I didn't love it enough to try them again. Sorry.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Really good. I made sure to add lots of cilantro to the lettuce and I marinated the chicken in soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, sesame oil and garlic with a little sugar. I cooked the breasts on a skillet on the stove whole and then sliced them up after. The won ton strips cooked a little quicker than the recipe calls for and they need to be tossed about halfway through. I think about 15 mins is about right. Mine strips also needed a little salt. Delicious and I'll definitely make this again.

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Wonderful recipe. This is the best banana bread I've ever had and I make it often. It's very moist and dense as it says it is in a good way. For fun, I added about 3/4 chocolate chips the second time I made it. This too turned out great. I ended up using six mashed bananas both time with excellent results. Thanks for the recipe and warnings.

Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
I like this recipe, but I made the chicken part a little different and it worked out great. Just throw chicken in a crock pot and cover with chicken broth or water with chicken boullion (sp?) cubes. Then add about 1.5 teaspoons of cumin (for four breasts), 1.5 teaspoons of chili powder, three of four garlic cubes minced, couple of teaspoons of salt and some onion powder if you have it. If you like stronger flavors, just increase the spices. Cook on low for 5 - 6 hours or high for 3 - 4 hours. Then just shred it and it's good to go for quesadillas. I then serve them with white rice (2 cups raw) with the juice of five limes, half a bunch of cilantro and about 1 - 2 teaspoons of salt. Rice this was is so good. I happen to be at Chipotle when the cook was making their rice so I copied what he did.

Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This truly is heavenly. I didn't quite have enough time to make this as written as I promised my daughter I would make this, but got home late. The only change I made was to cut the chicken up in bite sized pieces so it would cook faster. It worked. It was ready in 2 hours 15 mins on high and the chicken pieces were unbeliavably (sp?) tender. I'll make this again and again and will cut the pieces up just because it makes it easier to eat and serve. The only down size to this recipe is that one serving won't do it because it's so good you'll go back for more. Guilty of two servings myself. Thanks for the recipe Jeannie. Amazing.
