Warm Brie and Pear Tartlets

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
I made 48 of these for a party, and they were all eaten quickly. They are so simple to make. The creamy Brie worked so well with the lightly sweet pear and the small drizzle of honey. The only change I made was to bake them for approximately 5min. The cheese was completely melted by then, and they were piping hot. I'll be making these again!

Cheesy Sausage Pita Pockets

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
We enjoyed this recipe. Easy to make for a quick dinner and was very tasty. I accidentally added the whole amount of sauce to the meatballs, so after fishing them out with a spoon to stuff the pita, I used the cheesy sauce for dipping, instead of plain sauce. It was a nice addition!

Honey-Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2015
The flavor of this chicken is great - slightly sweet but with savory herbs, and definitely not too heavy. The only change I made was to mix the marinade in the ziplock bag so that I didn't need to clean an additional bowl. I'll be making this again!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2015
I love this recipe! Only changes I made were to make my own tahini with the recipe from this site, use 3T of tahini, and roast garlic / red pepper in the oven.

Lemon Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2015
I've been making this all week for my dinner! So good! And easy too! It has perfect flavor (not too overpowering), with a moist tender inside and a crisp garlic crust.

Tahini

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
I used this to make the "Real Hummus" recipe on AR. This was easy to make. I needed to add extra olive oil for it to blend properly. Also, I used black and white sesame seeds which gave it a darker color than the one on the recipe's main page.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2015
So delicious! The only change I made was to increase the lemon juice to 2/3 cups.

French Onion Chicken with Provolone Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
This was pretty good! Definitely easy! The only change I made was to broil the cheese for a minute after it melted so that it got a little crispy on top like French onion soup often has.

Karen's Italian Pan-Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
Loved this recipe! The chicken was tender and moist inside with a crisp crumb coating (I used Panko crumbs), and it paired greatly with the roasted red peppers and asiago cheese. I definitely ate more than I should have! Plus, it only took a half hour to throw together.

Barbecue Smoked Sausage Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2014
We loved this! The flavors worked perfectly together for a savory pizza. The bbq sauce was a great touch. Plus, it is so easy to throw together. I made a homemade crust that had additional herbs in it, and I'm so happy I prebaked the crust on 425 for a few minutes (after brushing lightly with olive oil), because the small amount of extra water from the veggies would have made it very soggy if I didn't pre bake before topping. I am making this again tonight!

Banana Bread from Mott's®

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
This was pretty good! After reading reviews on how there was too much batter, I halved the recipe and used the same pan. It came out a little smaller than normal breads but was still great! And it only needed to bake for 45 minutes instead of the hour.

Caramel Apple Cider with Salty-Sweet Rim

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
What a delicious fall drink! Perfect for a snowy day! The sweet/salty rim was perfect, and the hot cider had a great caramel flavor. I didn't have caramel sauce for the rim, so I dipped it in pumpkin butter from Trader Joe's which gave it added flavor. Oh, and I used 3 caramel candies in the drink. Thanks for the great recipe!

Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
I was craving something sweet but didn't want to make something time-consuming. This was simple to make and took 5 minutes (did it on a commercial break). I followed the directions except I used white chocolate chips instead of the semisweet minis and walnuts instead of almonds b/c that's all I had. I really wish I had the minis, because the large choco chips sunk right to the bottom and stuck to the mug! This cake is chocolatey without being too sweet or rich and the milk added a nice creamy taste. However, next time, I will use 2 or 2.5 T of milk, because I had just a bit too much liquid. The cake formed, but there was a little "chocolate milk" liquid around it. (Microwaved mine for just over a minute because I just used one larger mug rather than a few smaller ones.) I'll probably make this again as it's a great cake to randomly make for 1-2 people.

Creamy Chicken Dijon from Mazola®

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
Another great recipe from Mazola! It tasted just like the recipe states - creamy with a hint of mustard. I served it over egg noodles, so I doubled the sauce because we like our noodles doused in sauce. I don't have a Dutch oven, unfortunately, so I just cooked it all in a deep skillet on the stove. Also, I added a few dashes of onion powder to the chicken as it browned for added flavor. Oh, and I used heavy cream instead of half and half because I already had it in my fridge. This was very good!

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
Delicious and healthy! I followed the first two steps exactly and then dumped it all in the slow cooker for a few hours. Served with homemade bread.

PAM® Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
This is in our top 10 favorite recipes of all time! My husband requests it often! The only change that I have come to more recently make is to spread the butter mixture (only using 1/4 cup of butter) onto the top layer of crescent roll dough rather than just dotting it.

Polish Kielbasa and Pierogies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
We enjoyed this recipe very much! Delish! We made no changes except to serve with a brown butter/beer/apple cider/dijon mustard sauce. Will try this again soon!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
Everyone loved this! I left out the water and this made a very filling, almost chili-like soup. I made my own taco seasoning and used Johnsonville ground breakfast sausage instead of the beef. I also followed other reviewers which said to use: 10.75 oz. can of tomato soup, a packet of ranch dressing, 1 can of cannelloni beans instead of the chili beans, 1 can of diced tomatoes and jalapenos and 1 can of regular diced tomatoes. Can't wait to make it again! Served with cornbread and topped with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips.

Yia Yia's Baklava

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
Hi everyone, I submitted this recipe and have a quick note for anyone who saw this featured in the AR magazine: They said they halved the syrup and only let it sit for 2 hours. Though this is possible to do in a pinch, the baklava really does need the full 8 hours to soak up the syrup in order to have the optimal moist texture. I have tried it both ways, and the traditional 8 hours is much preferable to people I serve this to. Enjoy!
