Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
My family adores these! My daughter requests them every year for her birthday breakfast as well. The cook time and recipe are spot on when I make the large muffins. I always use paper liners and add vanilla and cinnamon to the mix. I wouldn't change a thing! Perfect recipe!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
Absolutely outstanding! I'm not a huge fan of honey mustard anything but was looking for a simple, healthy grilled chicken dish and chose this one. Used boneless/skinless chicken thighs and A-1 as my steak sauce and low fat mayo. FABULOUS! Will definitely make again.

Cedar Planked Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Seriously the best salmon we've had - restaurant or at home! I used 1/4 cup of olive oil in place of the vegetable oil, increased the garlic and had to use powdered ginger. Still incredible!! Good advice to grill the empty plank alone until crackling - my plank instructions indicate to put fish on plank directly from soaking and then on the grill. I think the pre-grilling of the blank plank is what led to the perfect blackened look on our salmon! WONDERFUL!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Absolutely PERFECTION! Followed this to the letter (other than adding some vanilla extract to the mix). This made 11 muffins for me. Mine cooked the full 20 minutes and were HEAVEN! Definitely bed and breakfast quality!

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Excellent and EASY! I did 1.5 times the sauce for my recipe and increased the garlic. I also used crushed red peppers vs fresh red chili peppers. Served over jasmine rice. Wonderful! My pot cooks hot so I cooked this on high for 1 hour and low for 2 and it was fall apart moist. Probably my favorite crockpot pork tenderloin recipe.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
Superb! My husband hates when I make pork because he feels that no matter what recipe I make, the meat is too tough. He scoffed tonight as well when I told him what I was making. Then proceed to have 3 helpings!! He even asked for tomorrows leftovers. Did this one totally in the oven and used the marinade (heated) to serve over the pork. 5 and 7 year old loved as well! Wonderful recipe!

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Wonderful! I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper and used a 4 oz jar of marinated artichokes with a 14 oz can of non-marinated artichokes. I increased the garlic and added way more fresh tomatoes and some kalamata's. Wonderful! Served over whole wheat rotini.

Pesto

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Awesome! Perfect! I even realized I was out of pine nuts after everything was in my food processor and subbed in while salted almonds in place of them. Still perfect! Was planning to use up a lot of basil by making this and freezing for futures use, however, this turned out so awesome that I revised dinner plans tonight to find a recipe that called for pesto. Best I've made yet.

Chicken with Mushrooms, Prosciutto, and Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Absolutely SUPERB! My husband dubbed this my best chicken dish EVER, which is saying a great deal. My 4 and 6 year olds were begging for seconds This meal was a hit!! I increased the garlic and used boneless/skinless chicken thighs. I put the mushrooms under the chicken as per others' recommendations. It was a great idea! This will go down in a short list of chicken recipes that we can't live without!! Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

Shrimp Francesca

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
The flavor of this was stinking fabulous! I used dried ginger and used sriracha sauce. I also doubled the garlic. I sauteed the chicken (which I tossed with flour) in one pan and thickened the sauce in a separate pan. I then combined it all together and served over rice. I served this with lemon roasted broccoli. Fabulous!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
We weren't fans of this. The pork, on low, was dried out after only 3 hours. They were thick boneless chops. I won't rate this any lower because I never ended up serving this with the sauce. Due to the dryness after 3 hours, I opted to dice the meat up, toss the sauce and will be using it up in soup to add some moisture back to it. I opted to change the dinner plans to something else instead.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
My favorite marinara sauce yet! I definitely increased the garlic to about 6 cloves for a double batch. I used italian seasoning and some garli garni seasoning as well. I used crushed tomatoes rather than stewed and sautee'd the garlic with the onion while adding some crushed red peppers. My go to marinara for sure!

Garlic Shrimp Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
While this had good flavor...the texture to me was not good. I don't like the cornstarch addition to this. I questioned it as I added it and rightfully so. It was super thick...goopy in a way. I even added extra water to try to lighten the thickness up...but to no avail. Don't get me wrong...the flavor was good. But I would not add the cornstarch IF I make this again. Thank you for posting.

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Definitely 5 stars! I did the crockpot method for this. I browned drained the beef (used very lean beef and 1/2 ground turkey for the meat) and added to the crockpot. I then sautee'd the veggies and added that. I used a 6 quart crockpot and could only fit in about 96 ounces of beef stock. I added about 10 cloves of garlic and added some garlic powder and crushed red pepper to the seasonings. I cooked the pasta separately and added to the individual bowls for serving. My kids and I LOVED it! My kids are 4 and 6 and both cleaned their bowls. I also added 8 ounces of fresh mushrooms to the last 3-4 hours of cooking time. Will definitely make again.
