Broccoli, Rice, Cheese, and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
I usually hate casseroles and don't ever make them. Except my moms tuna one during Lent because it has homeade biscuits on top. This was just as comforting as that. I am pregnant with my fourth and this was easy as pie. I did add 1/2 c extra water and 1/4 c extra milk because I used uncooked long grain rice. I cooked at 35O covered for two hrs and uncovered for the final 10 minutes. It was perfect. I didn't have chess food so I topped with kraft sliced cheese. Was so good I am going back for seconds.

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
this was amazing! Didn't alter anything in the sauce, but did add sautéd onions and peppers. Once I added the orzo to the sauce I did add fresh chopped spinach until it wilted. Unbelievable. I made this in a tight pinch budget wise, time wise and for our meatless Monday. I think I'll make this again on a night when I can add shrimP or scalloPs :) delish!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
These are easy and come out good every time. I did make some changes to suit my family. But, even as is they are really good. If the review says it's bland it's because the spices are old. Spices loose their flavor after a month or so on the shelf. My spices were fresh and doubling it was too spicey. This comes from an Indian family, so we eat lots of spicy curries and this was too much doubled. Perfect as is. I added, 1/4 c sour cream, added 1/2 teaspoonn vanilla, and subbed milk for the water, increased pumpkin to 1 cup and baked at 350 (took 5-10 min longer). 375 at 20 minutes made them rise really well in a dark pan. One cup of choc chips was plenty. Two was way too much. Even as wrote the easiest and best muffins I've made, this comes from a woman who has her own baking business! Thanks for sharing!

Dried Beef Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I'd give it a 0 if I could. Who makes anything for a family dinner with MSG anymore? This cheese ball gave my brother a serious migraine.

Apple-Honey Dutch Baby

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
i don't know why someone would say these were like scrambled eggs - unless they forgot to add the flour. I have made a simliar version. The only difference is I sauteed peeled apples in a skillet. This makes an apple pie like filling. I do prefer the texture of the dutch baby when cooked seperately. But, that's a personal prefrence.

Dutch Babies II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
Once I found this recipe I have made it nearly every day of the week. It's healthy and versatile enough for my picky toddlers before preschool. I top with fresh fruit, yogurt and granola. And, I know they won't be hungry. Only thing I do is double the recipe. It probably makes for a more solid pancake...but delish. I've made in the oven with apples, cinnamon and sugar I've sauteed but I just love the eggyness when done alone.

Baked Spiced Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
AMAZING! Came out perfect. Didn't change a thing. I used dark bone in chicken for optimum flavor. Lots of juices for gravy. I doubled this easily since tomorrow was to be busy. If paprika is the main ingrediant buy the best you can find. Pentzy is very easily found, or your local hunky market. Left the salt alone and not too salty for us. If you want spice use tony chechere's salt. For a roated flavor use lowerys. Although I think this is perfect as is!

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
DELISH!! Since I wasn't using a rotesserie chicken (grocery had fryer chickens on sale for $1 a pound) because I roasted a chicken earlier in the week. I decided to use full strength (full sodium) broth. This was perfect even after the startch of the noodles set in. Worked as wrote for me. Just what I needed on a cold wet rainy day. Thanks for sharing!

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This is an excellent way to serve chops. It's my personal favorite. The only thing I do differently is instead of red wine vinegar I use a french rasberry vinegar - super delisous! A splash of soy sauce gives it an asian flare...

Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
My mom made something similar but I can never get her recipe to turn out right (she never wrote the recipe down). This was spot on to her version! I updated it for my family. I sauteed 1/2 of a large viadallia onion and minced garlic with 1T butter. I browned my seasoned (Williams Sonoma's Asian seasoning) pork chops in the onions and garlic. I cooked according to the directions and they were awesome! My husband said, What is that? Slightly disgusted as they came out but LOVED them! Said they were the best pork chops he ever had. And, he couldn't get enough of the sauce -- eating it by the spoonful. I should add I used 2 cans of cream of mushroom. Maybe because we're midwesterners but we don't like the golden mushroom. And, the cream is nice for adding your own spices to the sauce. A keeper! My toddlers approved :D

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I think the people that had problems either whipped their cream cheese or used double stuffed oreos. DO NOT DO EITHER OF THESE. The object is a dense truffle no air needs beat in there. And, the double stuff just adds a wet element. The only other thing I can think of is to crumb your cookies in the food processor until it starts to clump together. The filling makes this possible and if you add the cream cheese at that stage you'll end up with a wonderful dough. I used nutter butter and mint chocolate oreos. Definately the nutter butter as my fave. It trumps buckeyes and I'll use this recipe instead. Can't wait to try this with other cookies.

Fruit Salad Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
AMAZING!! Made in a pinch after having a baby for a pot luck. It was easy to make with a three year old, a two year old and newborn (all rowdy boys!). But, delicious and completely faked everyone out. Did not find too sweet! This has become a staple here. And, my mom requested I bring it for Thanksgiving dinner. Your right Muriel, your mom was a gourmet!

Indian Tandoori Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
An absolutely authentic version of Indian Tandoori chicken. What I do is serve with grilled veggies (onions, peppers, and mushrooms with some grill seasoning is to die for). And, some rice - my husband`s favorite is saffron rice. Or, some Indian bread (naan or paratha). If you want to get really gourmet you could let the yougurt drain in some cheese cloth or a clean dish rag/towel. This makes for a very creamy yogurt - and is what home cooks in India use. PS: I prefer to finish with a mango lassi - super simple to make! ---- edit---- I also wanted to say you can find natural food coloring at the Indian grocers. Or, use some paprika.

Alla Checca

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Just what I was looking for! I wanted something light to go with my orzo...like an orzo pasta salad. And, something simple. This is so good...needs time to macherate but I just can`t help digging my spoon it. Used basil from my garden and can`t wait until my tomatoes are ripe. This will be my standard summer pasta. YUMM!!

Coconut Tofu Keema

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
I make this all the time, but my recipe is a bit different measurement wise. First, do NOT use all those tomatoes! It will ruin the curry. Cut it down to about 1 and 1/2 cups of the tomatoe sauce and I like to put the tomatoes and onions in the food processor. I use about 3/4 a cup of coconut milk unsweetened. And, add flaked *unsweetened* coconut for extra flavor. ALSO, since my husband is Indian I use paneer. AWESOME if you can find it. Some Indian (Patel Bros) groceries keep it in their frozen food section. You can also find ready made naan, chapathi, and paratha that are authentic and taste homemade. But, you don`t have to do all that work. ALSO, veggies I cut down to 1 to 1 1/2 cup total.

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Excellent quick dough. I made this last night and it turned out good. I added 1/2 t more of salt. And, 1 tsp Italian seasoning and 1/2 t crushed rosemary. Its a very soft dough and a bit *watery* when just mixed. I let rise for an hour then turned it into my oiled jelly roll pan. Turned out crisp on the bottom while really light when you bite into it. I just miss the yeasty flavor of dough that has rose twice. BAKE ON THE BOTTOM-MOST RACK for best results.

Easy Italian Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This is my favorite grilling recipe. I have made this for years and it is a favorite among everyone. I made for dinner guests once (always embarassed because its so easy). And, everyone RAVED. Kept complimenting every bite they took - I was blushing because it was really a quick fix. My sister cuts this up and grills in chunks on sticks with other veggies. Serve with rice and its a perfect weeknight meal (can marinate the night before). If you want to go all out. You can cut the breast in half lengthwise (pound if you want super thin) and marinate. Then, lightly grill until browned and put back in fridge with more dressing to marinate a few more hours. Then, totally cook through in the oven. You can not go wrong with this!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Obviously, this recipe does not need one more star. But, I can`t help it. This was so delicious! I used the help from Sharon on this one, and added the bread crumbs to the cheese mix. Panko to be exact. And, it turned into a really nice cheesey crust. My husband ranted and raved over this. Definately an addition to our usual recipe rotation. Made with sweet dinner rolls from this site. Can`t wait to have again!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Awesome! I have never made rolls like these before. Usually they are hockey pucks. This turned out great. I do need to do some work, I kind of rushed them through at the end, but they turned out better than anything else I`ve made. I have leftovers to use for lunch tomorrow as buns. Would be nice for hamburgers as well...maybe for dinner tomorrow!

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
This is a very rare recipe. It is perfect. It needs no additions or subsitutions. Amazing! I used this with mini quiches (from this site). Would work well with bread or chips or veggies for dipping. Great drizzled over some cajun salmon. Or dunking just about anything in! Heck, I`d use it as a salad dressing or instead of mayo on a burger. Or, on baked potatoes or potato skins instead of sour cream. This stuff literally could be ate by the spoon. Yes, this pregnant woman was doing just that. Amazing considering I can hardly stomach anything these days!! THANKS AMY FOR SHARING!
