Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
I was very excited to try this recipe, and followed it to a "T." I honestly could NOT eat a second bite. I used Kroger 30 min teriyaki marinade and Kraft Classic Ranch dressing. I am not sure if the marinade was the problem or not, but I have used this brand before and liked it. The flavors did not meld together well at all. It was beyond salty, and I am the type who usually needs to add salt to everything! I will not be making this again, I wouldn't even want to try it using a different type of marinade after this. I actually had to quickly make a new main dish. Possibly using a different teriyaki would make all the difference.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
This recipe is absolutely AMAZING! I have made it several times as is and every time it is a winner in this household! I have also made it with variations such as using fresh sausage instead of sweet Italian, fresh spinach instead of basil which is amazing as well. This recipe is a winner in my home as well as every variation I've come up with along the way. Thank you so much Mary!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2014
As another reader wrote, I was so excited to try this based on other reviews, but to be honest, not only was it VERY bland, but had a very hard crusty inedible top and mush, far too dense inside. Even if it had cooked properly, I wouldn't enjoy this at all. I made this for a cookout with myself and one very sweet teen girl who also took one bite and put her fork down, afraid to say anything. I made this exactly as the recipe stated. Perhaps with the adjustments others mentioned, it might be better, but I won't try it again, even with adjustments. Im sorry.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
This rice was amazing! I've always eaten Spanish rice but never really cared for it. I raved over this one, and I am my biggest critic. The kids even liked it. I browned the rice in butter. It still ended up very soft, not hard as others claimed and I truly cooked mine to a med golden brown. I used fresh garlic and because I had homegrown tomatoes and a green pepper, used that on top of the required amount of salsa. I agree that pepper is also needed. I was very skeptical about this tasting like jar salsa mixed with rice, but the chicken broth adds a unique, wonderful flavor and you would never know how simple this recipe actually is. I have found my keeper recipe!

Grilled Chicken and Potato Foil Packs

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2014
Because I had already marinated chicken before finding this recipe, I left out the chicken and made half the seasoning mix. I made a few changes, based on what I had on hand. I lightly sprinkled paprika on the potatoes after slicing, mainly for color. I cut back slightly on the oil and added butter. Because I didnt have thyme, I added a little parsley in its place. Because others said it was not as flavorful without doubling (but I was worried about too much flavor as my bf is more of a subtle flavors kind of person), I added about 1/2 tsp of Cavenders. This was AMAZING!! We will be making this often! I cannot wait to try it with the chicken next time. Thanks for an awesome recipe!
