Touchdown Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Outstanding beanless chili! I ALSO USED GINGER ALE INSTEAD OF BEER!! :-) Made this as is but w/1.25 lb ground turkey, so I cut cooking time and all ingredients in half, except for chili powder which I'm glad I used less of... I recommend no more than 2 heaping tablespoons chili powder per pound, very easy to make your own to your liking- a great base is 1 tsp paprika, 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp oregano, 2 tsp garlic powder per 1 lb meat... Anywho! I did not drain green chiles and glad I didn't :-) Served this topped w/sour cream, colby-jack & chedder cheese, over macaroni & cheese w/a side of cornbread! Thanks SO much for this recipe!

PHILLY Pesto Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I didn't have cream cheese spread so I used a soft brick of Neufchâtel cheese (1/3 less fat than cream cheese ;) Ditched the mushrooms & spooned Neufchâtel cheese by the tsp into medium flaming skillet but it started popping as well as turning brown so I tried a dash of olive oil but no help there. I spooned the Neufchâtel cheese in a bowl and microwaved it for 30 seconds, then mashed it with a fork; I repeated this microwaving mashing 2 more times, could have done good with 3 or 4 more tho. I immediately mixed Easy Pesto from allrecipes to my cheese, mixed with my hot pasta and cold tomatoes and it was good! Not fun reheating so I must try this w/cream cheese spread...

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Didn't have pine nuts so I halved and toasted almonds on skillet, covered for 10 mins on med-low flame. I do think more than 6 can be served with this recipe as is :-) I put some of this in mayo & it was so good! I also added this pesto to Allrecipe's Philly Pesto Pasta!!

Tuna Noodle Supreme

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Made recipe as is and wasn't creamy enough for me, next time I'll add spinach for more moisture, and a little more mayo or sour cream, and 1/4 cup heavy cream or maybe 1/2 cup of milk... just ideas. Also added 2 stalks of celery. For pasta, I used cooked egg noodles (after making tuna casseroles that have called for egg noodles before, I can't be led astray! :-P) but I cannot wait to try this recipe with cooked rice! Also, I topped this off with shredded colby-jack cheese last 10 mins of baking. Thanks for such a good hot tuna recipe!

Simply Divine Meat Loaf with Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
So moist at first that we didn't like it much but upon finishing dinner, I wrapped up leftovers and meatloaf looked better and tasted much better after sitting uncovered for some minutes. Next time I will either uncover halfway through the hour of cooking or let meatloaf sit for at least 10 mins before serving to dry it out a little more. Thanks so much for the recipe, can be very versatile- I added my favorite herbs & spices and also added one half cup of mozzarella cheese to top off meatloaf last 10 mins of baking! Yummm!

Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I used a can of condensed cream of celery soup and end result came out great! Glad I only used 8 oz of crab meat because I do not eat crab meat often and felt as though the crab flavor was hiding the tomato and celery flavors so I plan to use even less crab meat next time with the same amount of everything else. FYI for milk, 15 ounces = 1.8 cups. Also, before making soup I sauteed a handful of chopped red bell pepper, carrots and green onions. Thank you for a quick & tasty, versatile keeper!

Honey Mustard Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Very good recipe as is (even without my favorite herbs & spices!) I like to use TWO slices of HAM, w/cheese rolled inside ham. Many white cheeses will work in this dish, my preference is any italian cheese blend but I've used colby-jack w/great tasting results too. Added half a chopped onion before baking because the onion really complements the sugar in the honey. If you fear too strong of a mustard flavor or don't have enough mustard, then lessen the amount of mustards called for and replace the lessened amount with mayonnaise... Two examples: #1, I did not have spicy brown so I used 1/4 cup mayo to replace the spicy brown - chicken came out great. #2, I did not have enough mustards so I used slightly more than 1/8th cup of each mustard with slightly less then 1/2 cup of mayo to make up for the loss of mustard

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
I was wondering if the final product would live up to the recipe's juicy title and it exceeded my expectations! Very helpful reviews. I made this according to the original recipe, plus a couple pinches of my favorite herbs and spices; I would also use less mayo & cheese, 1/2 cup of each should suffice because I threw away almost a 1/4 cup of each! Also, I tried one chicken breast in italian dressing- more flavor but I'd rather marinate it first; the mayo chicken was more tender.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
I doubled this awesome spice mixture with published amount of chicken, and I tripled the amount of lime, SOOO good! I've made this too many times and it's always so good the next day shredded with mayo as a sandwich!!

Spinach Beef Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Made as instructed but added cheese last 10 mins of baking, didn't use mushrooms and used fresh, chopped spinach. ALSO! I took a chance against many other reviews and used uncooked rice but added 1/2 cup of water and to my surprise, the rice came out GREAT along with everything else, not dry at all!

Cheese Stuffed Turkey Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
A quick & easy but flavorful mess of love! I did not have cheddar cheese though, so I used an Italian six cheese blend and it still came out great! Will be making this again with cheddar cheese as I think it would go better with the typical meatloaf topping of ketchup/BBQ sauce/both. Only things I changed where adding a whole tablespoon of adobo seasoning as well as basil with garlic breadcrumbs because I am a garlicaholic. I was also able to serve 5 so thank you for this nice spin on meatloaf recipe!

Texas Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
2nd review: If you are short on time, make this w/a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing powder. I did and chicken came out much more ranch-ey than my previous review, and still very juicy (thank you olive oil)! Baked chicken at 365* for 40 mins, adding cheese last 10 mins. I will try marinading this in Ranch salad dressing next time when I have more time!! 1st review: This recipe is a quick & easy keeper, thank you for sharing!! I will surely make this again but by marinading the chicken in the ranch dressing first, probably overnight, because it wasn't nearly as ranch-ey as I would have liked it to be! The amount of dressing seems fit, even for marinading, just not as flavorful as I expected! AND even after reading GenS's review below mine, I still managed to overlook adding the cheese last but it really was a nice mistake because I too had a tasty, slightly cheesy sauce to use as a topping!!

Orange-Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
Quick and easy but blander than I expected... since I marinated over 24 hours in a freezer bag of 2 cups OJ, 3/4 soy sauce and 3/4 Worchestershire sauce with 1 large tsp of garlic powder... used 3 lbs. of chicken breasts, pounded thin, baked as instructed and even though chicken was tender and juicy, it was too bland for my liking. I will be sure to add much more garlic powder and at least a couple spices next time. (maybe crushed red pepper flakes per another user's review?) I spread hickory & brown sugar bbq sauce on chicken and it made for a slightly more flavorful dish. Making extra sauce for rice might be better with a cup or two of brown sugar...
