Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
When I was telling my husband the ingredients I needed for this, he said, "It sounds like the island of misfit food." None of the ingredients together sound like they would be very good, but after the first bite, he said, "OH WOW." And that's what this is. So so so so good. There are lots of flavors without tasting like too much or overwhelming and my recently picky three year old ate it too! Definitely going on the list again. For the salt, just get low sodium I think. We like salt so maybe that's why it wasn't a big deal but we used low sodium ranch and teriyaki with only whole ingredients. That usually makes a difference.

Pork Chops Smothered in Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2014
SO good! So much more flavorful than all the cream of mushroom soup recipes I had to sift through to find one that used whole ingredients. For anyone saying that the recipe was too bland and who added cream of mushroom soup, you would get the same effect by adding a cup of salt to the recipe. Yuck. There's no creativity in using those soups, and they are NOT AT ALL healthy. Loved that this was a whole ingredient recipe without any poison added. (No, I'm not brainwashed, just like to know what I'm putting in my body.) We put the extra gravy over garlic mashed potatoes although I probably could have just eaten it with a spoon when no one was looking. :) The only things I changed: I used real garlic added with the onions instead of powder or garlic salt, and extra mushrooms, because we're kind of obsessed with them here.

California Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
this is one of my favorite go-to recipes because it is uncomplicated and relatively few ingredients. one thing i have found has ruined it is using canned tomatoes. resist the urge! :) i use different pasta depending on what i have on hand. i usually make it with penne though. sounds disgusting, but is actually good as a cold salad the next day. and when i make it for company i leave the feta out and let people add as little or as much as they'd like, it's one of those finnicky cheeses. :)

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I have been making this for a couple years now and every time I make it several people ask for the recipe. Funny when people realize how effortless it is. I make chocolate cream cheese frosting to go with it on the side and warn people to try a bite by itself before adding frosting. It doesn't need any sort of glaze or anything unless for looks. I usually put twice the pudding in it though. It started out on accident and found it is spongier that way.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
My husband gave this five stars, I would give it about three as it lacked some flavor until you put the vinegar in. Then it tasted like vinegar. :) But hubby says it's one of the better clam chowders he has ever had. I like my soup/chowder to be chunky so I sliced carrots and celery and left my onion pieces big. It ended up tasting very floury despite following directions to the letter, so I added milk at the end to balance it out and make it less dense (the thicker cut vegetables could be to blame for this too). Definitely will make again, if only to keep husband happy.

Slow Cooker Egg Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
I've made this for the past several years for Christmas breakfast. It is great but it does taste best the next day as leftovers. The only change I have made over the years is use 2 packages of Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage instead of bacon. When I do this, I can use different flavors of bacon and skip the dill. The dill is a little off putting to some.

Kevin's Teriyaki Chicken

This was REALLY good, I never would have thought to use pineapple juice, but it was great.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
I have been trying to find a broccoli cheese soup that is relatively quick and easy. Here it is! I made this and then put it in the crockpot on warm. It's pretty perfect. I had a two-pound loaf of Velveeta I needed to use so we doubled the batch. My husband, who swears "soup is not a meal" brought this for his lunch for four days. We also took half of it to a neighbor. So don't double it unless you need to feed a BIG bunch. :)

Cara's Creamy Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
My only modification is to use a pound of Italian sausage and a pound of ground beef. So delicious. It makes a lot of filling and I always end up eating about a cup of the filling by itself. It's just too good! But with the leftover filling, I will usually cook up some angel hair and mix it all together while it's still warm. This is so good.

Cream Soup Base

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
This is a great base that I have used for adding leftover vegetables or whatever I had on hand to it to "recycle" meals we wouldn't eat otherwise. ("Recycle" sounds so gross when talking about dinner!) I added my leftovers Cajun Chicken Pasta (also on AllRecipes) we weren't going to eat and made Cajun Chicken Noodle Soup. Possibilities are endless! :)

BLOTCHE aka Widow maker

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
Oh, it was AMAZING, but I like my sandwiches to not require quite so much effort. It was a ton of work for a sandwich. No doubt about it, it was still good, but the name is fitting. We both felt like we were going to go into cardiac arrest after dinner. So good and if it were in a restaurant so I didn't have to prepare it and clean up after, I would order it every time. :)

Creamy Jalapeno Popper Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
I'm pregnant and crave jalapeno poppers nonstop. Unfortunately, I only eat all natural foods, so going and getting some at Sonic wasn't an option. I didn't have parmesan cheese on hand and I made it without it. Baked at 400 degrees until heated through. This dip saved my life today! I get all natural mayo at Trader Joes. It exists!

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
I had a huge roast and we have long since given up on feeding our bodies poison. So my classic go-to cream of mushroom/onion soup mix roast was out. I found some organic packets of italian dressing and gravy and used those. I couldn't find a ranch packet I felt good about and couldn't make some in a pinch so I left it out. I doubled the other packets and the water (we love gravy) and added 2 large quartered onions, a bunch of quartered potatoes, and baby carrots to absorb some of the flavor. Great flavor and super easy, my new roast recipe. Thanks!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2014
Even our 3 year old ate it. Until we told her the noodles were actually vegetables. :) But it was delicious. Going in the rotation because it is healthy, whole ingredients, and easy for this busy pregnant mom of a 3 year old to make in a jif. :) When I make spaghetti squash, I poke it a few times with a knife, cut it in half, and roast it in a baking pan, cut side down, for an hour at 400 and ours is always perfectly done and delicious.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
This was SO delicious! We didn't have any milk (how is that even possible?) so I used half and half instead. Wow! It was so rich but SO good. Wouldn't change a thing about it.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
I made ours out of ground turkey to save on fat, but our "salisturkey" steaks were pretty good. The gravy didn't work because the meat was so lean (why we use turkey in the first place) but these had a great flavor. Adding to my list to make again. :)

Favorite Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
I also just baked this. I was worried about the sauce because of other reviews and when I tasted it prior to putting on the chicken, I choked because of the strong vinegar presence. But somehow when it baked, it didn't bug me anymore. The chicken was moist all the way through and my 3 year old (who refuses to eat meat usually) ate a whole breast all on her own! I will make it again, it's not a lot of work and we don't eat bottled BBQ sauce... but few can top this one anyway.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
I have a big dinner once a month at my house and needed something easy that would feed a lot of people, so I tried this. I put it in at midnight and when I went to turn it around at 10 am, it all fell apart on me, so I shredded the whole thing (it was shredding on its own by that point) and put it back in. So delicious and easy and pretty cheap! I used regular sea salt since I didn't have anything else and it was totally fine. I like it salty but nobody said it was too salty. I did add a little extra smoke after shredding it and putting it back in the crockpot.

Slow Cooker Cheesy Tortellini

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
Husband was IN LOVE with this (as I made it with modifications) and keeps asking when I will make it again. I used a pound of sausage and skipped the beef. I added a bag of spinach and doubled the tortellini. I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes instead of slow cooking it. I was afraid the tortellini would turn to mush if I cooked it for several hours.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
We liked it but the processed cheese overpowered everything. My husband and I called this nacho casserole because that's exactly what it tastes like. You couldn't taste any other flavors except the cheese and chicken. We might make it again but will have to tweak it per some of the other reviews.
