Thanksgiving Leftover Wontons with Cranberry Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
This was such a great way to enjoy leftovers and have a unique and beautiful presentation. I had large sized wrappers so rolled them up as egg rolls and deep fried in oil for 3 minutes. They were amazing. And the cranberry sauce was an improvisation since I used jalepeno jelly instead of onion, garlic & jalapenos but it was absolutely amazing. I brought leftovers to work and everyone raved.

Moo Goo Gai Pan

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
This was a great recipe. I only had the straw and regular mushrooms and broccoli, no water chestnuts and no bamboo. It tasted delicious. The sauce was different from other Chinese dishes I've made because of the rice wine (sake). I'd eat this any day, very easy to make too.

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This was great. I poached the breasts in chicken broth flavored with some oregano, onions and carrots for about 15-20 minutes first. While that's going on, you have time to shred the cheese and fry the tortillas. Instead of jack, I used the white cheese from Mexican markets, I think it's called Queso Fresco. I wish I would have rolled the tortillas up tighter because a few did open up at the sides. I would make these again any day, as the whole family loved them. Yum!

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
I wouldn't call this a spicy dish unless you use spicy BBQ sauce. My kids loved it. We took it camping and found the flavor even better when reheated the second day. If you use a dutch oven, it's a one dish meal! I read somewhere to add a pinch of baking soda to beans to cut down on their side effects so I did this but that's the only change I made.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
I normally steer clear of canned soup recipes because I find the flavor tinny, but I made this in a pinch and found it surprisingly good. Even my kids, who don't normally like their food mixed together casserole style, loved this, especially the topping. I used cream of celery & cream of mushroom because that was what I had, heated them together with the other ingredients on the stove before throwing in the oven, and it was easy and good.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
I only had plain bread crumbs so I added about 2 tablespoons of Italian Seasoning and sweet basil. Instead of ketchup on top I used steak sauce which turned into a really nice crust like topping. This was delicious but it did look a little strange to see chunks of cheese in the meat. Next time I'll hide vegetables like shredded carrots and zucchini in it as well. Great and easy recipe!

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
Yum! A very nice change from the usual chicken dinners but incredibly easy to prepare. If you need to thicken up your broth sauce at the end, you can take 1/4 cup of cold water and add 2 T corn starch. Stir well and whisk it in with the sauce over heat, let simmer another 2 minutes. Surprisingly my young kids loved this.

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
This was an interesting method for cooking chicken as I'm used to sauteeing it in either butter or olive oil. I thought I'd try this route for healthy cooking but the broth evaporated before the chicken was fully cooked so I ended up adding butter & olive oil after about 10 minutes. Although not how the original recipe intended, it turned out really good. If you don't have roasted red pepper on hand, you can just put it over a gas burner flame or grill it on a BBQ, black scorch marks and all, then peel, seed, and chop it up. It worked out great that way. When I added the vegetables, I covered the pan to keep the chicken moist. Total cook time was more like 10 minutes for 3 big chicken breasts plus 8 minutes more after adding the veggies. I think next time I might saute the chicken in olive oil, deglaze the pan with broth and then add the veggies chicken for last 10 minutes. The balsamic ties the strong flavor of the vegetables together with the chicken nicely.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
This was great. I started with frozen blueberries and let them defrost in a strainer overnight so the water/juice wouldn't effect the batter. I used more like 2 cups of blueberries-yum. I used whole wheat flower in the mix and snuck in a couple handfuls of flax seed meal to make me feel good about my kids eating them. It made 12 jumbo muffins and wish it were more. In the streusel recipe, I used 1/4 cup brown & 1/4 cup white sugar. The whole streusel part can be halved, I threw most away after topping the 12 jumbo muffins. They were done exactly at 20 minutes and popped right out of the muffin tins since I used cooking spray to coat the top and sides of the pan. This recipe really is to die for. I have eaten 2 already today and really want a third one. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!!

Seven Layer Dip I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
There are so many recipes for 7 layer dip here, I was really torn. But I am SO GLAD I chose this one. It is really delicious. We used ground turkey instead of ground beef and I was nervous about not seasoning it at all, but you know what? It didn't need it. The salsa and guacamole both had a kick so that the meat needed to be mild. I think the middle layer of cheese is especially important, as most dips just have cheese on top and it always falls off the chip. Be sure to smush down each layer as you add them, and don't be shy on amounts, we used more like 1.5-2 cups of guac, sour cream and more like 1.5 cans of refried beans. No need to really measure since you're just layering it. This is a great recipe.

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
If you are making this, be sure to turn the butter and flour mixture into a roux before adding the broth and milk. Simply whisk them togther over low heat after the butter melts for 2 minutes until you can smell a nutty scent, then slowly whisk in the liquids a little at a time. This was great with whole wheat spaghetti. I added quartered mushrooms that were sauteed with onions and red bell peppers and also blanched some fresh green beans and added them for color. Then baked it all together. Make sure to press your noodles down under the sauce as any above the sauce will get a little crispy. Delicious!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
These were more on the spiced side than the sweet side. I was looking for sweet so maybe that's why I didn't think they were that great.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I was a little worried about just using corn starch for the breading, but it was perfect. It's easiest to stick the corn starch in a bag and add the pork, close the top and shake it around. I fried the pork in the same wok as I used for the veggies to avoid washing too many dishes. Once you add all the ingredients into the sauce, don't let it cook more than 1 minute to keep everything crispy. The celery adds a great crunch in this dish. If there were more stars to give, I'd give them!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
This was really good. I used crushed Ritz crackers mixed with a little butter on top. You can definitely cut back on the amount of butter the recipe calls for, and be sure to taste the sauce before you add the noodles and mushroom mixture to adjust for seasoning.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
This recipe is absolutely perfect exactly the way it is written, no changes needed. It comes out looking just like the rotisserie chickens I buy cooked at the grocery store and tastes even more moist! Thank you.

Choco-Scotch Marble Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Five stars based on the cake alone--it was so good we ate it up before I had time to make the frosting. The cake is beautiful and delicious. I wasn't quite sure about the pan it calls for--I used a bundt pan. I also was a little worried about the fact that it seemed like there wasn't enough batter to cover the pan into 4 layers but it works perfectly! Absolutely delicious and perfect for a fall gathering since the butterscotch turns a pretty shade of orange.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
The potatoes turned out absolutely delicious. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and it turned out dry. I think this recipe would only be good for bone-in thighs. But it definitely was crispy. Use coarse salt if you have it, adds lots of flavor to the potatoes.

Oriental Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
These 5 stars are based on changing out the peanut oil for about 2 tablespoons peanut oil. Instead of ramen noodles, I used rice noodles and they were a great fit. I also added finely diced red bell pepper for some color. Was great after sitting in refrigerator for 2 hours and even better the next day.

Turkey Burger Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
This was good and while I'm sure it's great as is, I took a combination of feedback from other reviewers and made these changes: Used 2 eggs instead of egg substitute. Between the meat and the cheese, I "hid" frozen spinach-defrosted and squeezed out excess water-nobody complained about that and it made me happy to get some veggies in this one dish wonder. Used Bisquick and found the batter runny, even though it mostly cooked up fine. But next time I'll use 3/4 cups milk instead. Added onion powder, chili powder, salt & paper to the meat while cooking.
