French Toast I

Reviewed: May 10, 2015
These turned out so good! I made them for Mothers Day and everyone loved them! I bought thick cinnamon swirl bread for French toast and used a little bit more cinnamon than the recipe called for. I also omitted the nutmeg and salt. I sprinkled some powdered sugar on top for decoration and then ate with syrup and made a fresh blueberry compote. Will definitely make again! Thank you for the great recipe!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Definitely a 5-star recipe and just like the ones at chili's! These were amazing & everyone loved them! I tripled the ingredients & used three chicken breasts to make sure I'd have enough for everyone to try and have some extras in case anyone wanted another one (by doing this i ended up with about 12 eggrolls) - good thing - because they went fast!! I chopped up/minced a sweet onion instead of green onion & chopped up fresh baby spinach instead of using frozen. I also omitted the cayenne pepper since we didn't have any and some don't care for things very spicy anyway. I used shredded Colby jack cheese since that was all I could find at the store and used the flour tortillas. I made some as the fried version & some as the baked version and both were excellent! Fyi-I also omitted freezing them before cooking them and they stayed together just fine - just used a toothpick to keep them together while cooking them, then take the toothpicks out before serving them. For the dipping sauce I made a guacamole dip (using a packet from the store & fresh avocados) and then added sour cream and some ranch dressing. It turned out really good! Everyone loved the eggrolls (and the sauce), even those that don't like things too spicy, so they had just enough of a 'southwest' kick without going overboard. Will definitely be making these again, I just wish it had made even more the first time so that I could have had some to freeze for next time :)

Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
I definitely know why this recipe has a full 5 star review - it's the best chicken parmesan I've ever had, let alone ever made..! I followed the recipe as called for but did add a few extras. I used chicken tenderloins so I didn't have to pound them out and blotted the extra oil from the chicken after cooking in the skillet. I also grilled up some chopped onions and mushrooms which I sprinkled over the (homeade) spaghetti sauce layer and used fresh basil, parsley, rosemary & oregano for the seasoning. I served it over garlic spaghetti with garlic bread - Yum! Definitely will make again!

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
This was soooo good!! We all loved it! I doubled the sauce recipe so that I could make 6 pieces of chicken and even did 2 pieces of fish with the same sauce and panko breading to try it out and both were excellent! Idid put some sauce between the chicken and cheese as some others had suggested aswell as on the outside before rolling in the panko crumbs and used 5 pieces of asparagus in each chicken. I did not put any cheese on the fish and just placed the asparagus on top of it on the plate. I also used fresh basil instead of terragon since we had that on hand. I served the chicken/fish with roasted red & yellow peppers and broccoli cheese rice, garlic toast & a few extra pieces of asparagus on the plate. Everything tasted great together! Iwill definitely make thisagain!! Thank you forsharing!

Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Soooo good! I did the recipe almost all as was called for especially with the sauce part, but did add some more salt and seasoned salt to sauce and used italian cheese mixture and parmesan cheeae instead of swiss cheese. I also added green pepper, onion and garlic to the sauteed chicken. I also used angel hair pasta and used skim milk instead of half and half. Serve with garlic bread. Yum!! Thank you for the recipe!

Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Very good!! I followed the basic recipe making some minor adjustments / adding some additional ingredients and we all loved it! Will definitely make again! I used the spaghetti noodles as called for (but used 1/2 reg spaghetti and 1/2 wheat spaghetti b/c that's what we had) and grilled sweet onions with the mushrooms and garlic instead of using shallots. Also added some fresh brocolli, sliced red pepper and yellow summer squash/zucchini after grilling the onions/mushrooms for awhile. I put a lid on the pan to steam the veggies some while I put some ready-to-eat shrimp (without tails), little butter and garlic in a seperate pan to cook up some then added it to the veggie mix. I made double the sauce by adding double the white wine, double lemon juice & double cream/milk (used 1/2 cup half & half and 1/2 cup reg/skim milk & double parmesan cheese. I made some garflic bread and salad as a side. Sooo good! FYI- I made double the sauce it called for b/c I added the extra ingredients and recipes never seem to end up adding enough sauce. Will deifinitely be making again! Thank you for sharing!!

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This pie was really good!! I didn't change anything in the recipe other than I used light corn syrup instead of the dark and used some chopped pecans along with the pecan halves. For those that said that they poured the filling in the crust first and then poured the pecans on top - you're supposed to put the pecans in the crust first and then pour the filling on top because the pecans rise up to the top of the filling. FYI - My dad LOVES pecan pie and he said it was one of the best he's had & tasted fresher than most! Enjoy!

Penne and Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
The sauce turned out really good! I did add some additional ingredients and we all loved the final outcome! I made some bacon & seasoned chicken to add to the pasta/sauce and sauteed some chopped onions and mushrooms in the butter with some garlic. I also added some peas, sundried tomatoes, boursin garlic & herb cheese (because we had some) and basil. Very good - especially with garlic bread! The only change I would make next time is to make extra sauce. Bon Appetit!

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
These are great fries and are baked instead of fried! This is the 2nd time I've made them and we all love them! I just made a few adjustments both times. I used the same seasonings that the recipe calls for and just added salt and a little pepper. Cook them at 400 degrees and turn over half-way through. Enjoy! :)

Chocolate Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
This is a great recipe! My family loved it! I used 4 tablespoons of cornstarch as others had suggested and used 2 cups skim milk and 1 cup whole milk. I also used a graham cracker pie crust and spread the cool whip over the whole pie and sprinkled chocolate chips all over. Looks great and tastes even better! :)

Shrimp and Mushroom Linguini with Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Very good recipe! I cooked the whole 1 lb. pkg of extra wide egg noodles we used and used a little more than half of the package for this recipe. I used the whole 8 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, cut the butter down some, added 1/2 cup of white wine to the sauce and used skim milk instead of the water. I also cooked some onions up with the mushrooms and added peas, sundried tomatoes and extra shrimp to the pasta (I cooked up the shrimp some with garlic and butter in a frying pan before adding it to the pasta and sauce. We all loved it! And made some crab cakes and sauce for a side. Mmmm!

Best Ever Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
We really liked this cucumber/tomato pasta salad. We wanted to find a recipe where we could use cucumbers and tomatoes out of our garden and were happy with the results! I used tri-colored spiral pasta (12 oz) and cut the mayo and sour cream basically in half which was enough and only put 1 Tbl of dill weed which was also plenty. Instead of lemon pepper (which I didnt have) I used 1 Tbl lemon herb seasoning (which didn't have salt) and 1 Tbl seasoned salt and added some black olives. Very tasty! Thank you for sharing! Will make again :)

Grilled Portobello Sandwich with Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
Very good recipe! I would use a very large pepper or at least two small ones since the one we used was a little too small and would triple up on the mayonnaise/garlic sauce since the teaspoons said to use in the receipe really doesn't make that much for the big mushroom caps so we made more to spread on both the bottom and the top buns for each sandwich. Everything else was perfect. Very flavorful! Thank you for sharing the recipe! Will definitely make again :)
