Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
Well, it's in the oven. This is definitely a springboard recipe. I only had split chicken breast w/skin and bone. So because of longer cooking time, I used plain canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. I did drained them tho'(using the reserved juice in cooking my spanish rice). I coated the breasts in olive oil and then spread minced garlic (from a jar) over it. Then coated with sea salt, parsley, and a little oregano (ran out of basil plus I thought it would work better with the rice). Also, I added a personal fav of celery seed (not salt!). I sprinkled parsley and oregano on the bottom of the pan and placed the herb coated chicked into it. I put the drained canned tomatoes into a small bowl. I added fresh cracked pepper, a little more minced garlic, then drizzled a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar over it and mixed well. I mounded the tomatoe mix onto the breasts. Covered and put in the oven. It's been 30 min and I just checked and the juices are clear. I topped with sharp cheddar cheese (all I had) and uncovered. I will check in another 8-10 min. It's done. I let it rest while I finished up the rice. The chicken and tomatoes are flavorful and juicy. Will definitely try again probably using a monterrey or mozz for the cheese. Thanks!

Island Shrimp and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2006
Did this recipe like written except my sis can't stand heat so i omitted the cayene and added tsp minced garlic. Also, Since I had shrimp shells, I cooked them to make a shrimp broth, I substituted 1/4 cup chicken stock for shrimp. For those of you that felt it was bland, I would guess you used can chicken stock. I had made my chicken stock the day before and it (as well as the dish) had great flavor. Even though I stopped after I put in the bacon and second batch of stock, took the pot to my sister's (10min away), then added the shrimp and heated through till they were cooked, it still came out great. Thanks for a keeper oh, and the bacon does make it but so does homeade chicken/shrimp stock :-)

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2006
Great salsa! Had to change cilantro to parsley (family can't stand it)and Jalapeno to bell (sis doesn't do heat) based on review, I only used 2T of oil (plenty) but I did add 1/4 tsp of a good balsamic vinegar. We were drinking the juice out of our bowls!! Had it with boiled shrimp which were swimming that morning and the tequila salsa (5 stars) from this site. What a great, good for you meal. Thx again!

Tuna Pockets

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
I made this tonight. If you like tuna melts and biscuits, this is a no brainer. We all liked it. I did add an extra 1T of Mayo and 1T cheese knowing that we like wetter saucier food in general. The cheese was half sharp and half Mozz. I did use the onion/celery in specified amounts and just for color, I put in 1 tsp of shivered/diced red bell. Couple of Tsp of garlic powder. Some ground black pepper. Used Grand bicuits. Served with a newly developed "whatsinthepantry" recipe of 3 cans of Progresso tomato soups - 1 basil, 1 Parmesan & 1 hearty tomato. Good for dipping. *** I will try this again and again. I want to try a flakier, more layered biscuit as well as using crescent roll to form triangle pouch. *** Also plan to use all types of fillings. Thank you for the springboard!

7-Up® Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
I followed this recipe after making them several times from another recipe. I realized when i was measuring the 7up that it was too much but i checked the recipe again and used it. When i saw how soupy it was i went and pulled out the other recipe i had used before and realized it only called for 1/2 C soda. so I doubled everything else and put the butter in the skillet, like i had always done, and they turned out great! actually having a double batch, I made some huge biscuits.
