Roasted Sweet Potato Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2012
Although this recipe came out AMAZING (I was on the phone with my mom after eating and my boyfriend yelled into the phone- "Candy, your daughter can COOK!!!"), I'm giving the recipe a 3 because it was a solid base but needed some extras to really be tasty. Used 4 cups of vegetable stock instead of 3. I included everything already in the recipe, but after the soup boiled and then simmered for 25 minutes, I then added ground sage (which I *highly* recommend; it really added a great fall flavor), more pepper and salt, about 3/4 or 1/2 cup of light cream, and Siracha (hot sauce) to taste. The result was spectacular. After finishing his bowl, my boyfriend was literally spooning it straight out of the pot!

Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breasts Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
I don't eat meat, so my stars are based off of my carnivore boyfriend's reaction. This dish was surprisingly simple to make but really, let me tell you, that man was so happy when he took his first bite! I followed some of the other reviewers' advice; I caramelized the shallots and garlic, cooked for 35 minutes, broiled for 7 more minutes, then seared the bottom after taking it out of the oven to get the bottom crispy. Chicken was perfectly cooked AND the bacon was crispy. I paired it with the "Beet Salad with Goat Cheese" I found on AllRecipes; also simple to make yet extremely flavorful.
