Mint Garden Tea Concentrate

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
This sounds wonderful, but you forgot to mention how much tea to put into the recipe -- or is the mint used instead of traditional tea leaves? Thank you.

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
I made this exactly as written (except for the malt vinegar, which I did not have on hand) and it was devoured by four picky eaters, all with different tastes! The dish was easy to make, and although the spices and ingredients don't sound like they'd go together -- they do! The sauce was thick, rich and creamy, the chicken tender and juicy. I took the breasts out to shred, gave the sauce a good stir, and then placed the shredded chicken back into the crockpot on low while I made the pasta and side dish (green beans with grape tomatoes in a touch of Italian dressing). Thank goodness -- a new staple that every one can agree on! Thanks!

Chicken and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
This recipe IS missing key ingredients -- some kind of liquid. The rice does not cook evenly, and the soups on top are not mixed into a nice sauce. Like another reviewer, it was inedible as written, and now the family is hungry and frustrated. Follow the advice of some other reviewers and add liquid and mix it with both the soup mix and the can of soup. I don't know how much to liquid to add, so check out some of the other reviewers who have been making this correctly for years, and try it that way. DON'T try it as written.

Spicy Sweet Steak Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
If you are looking for a quick, easy to prepare stir fry, then this is it. However, it is quite bland and has almost no flavor, so if you are looking for something spicy and sweet, this is not the best dish for that. It would be fine if you want a mildly flavored, light stir fry meal, but either doctor it up a lot or try something different if you want something that will tantalize your taste buds. This recipe will not be added to my family's menu, but it could very well please yours if your family prefers lightly seasoned dishes. I prepared this meal exactly as written.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2013
I rated this recipe 5 stars for many reasons -- 1 - my entire family loved it, which is difficult to achieve in my house; 2 - it was a piece of cake to prepare; 3 - the ingredients are readily available most of the time and 4 - it is good enough to serve company. I especially liked using olive oil instead of eggs for the first step in breading the chicken. Much easier, less messy and very tasty. I did add 2 extra cloves of garlic because my family loves garlic, but that is the only change I made. Thank you!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Easy to prepare, and especially convenient that most ingredients are readily available in my normal "food reserves". I tried it out on my kids and their friends (ages 18-20), and they all liked it. I served it over linguine, and followed the recipe as written. Thank you for something new that the whole family will eat!

Amaretto Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
My family loved this cheesecake, which I made for Easter dessert. This is only the second cheesecake I have ever made, and the instructions were easy to follow to make a successful dessert. The only adaptations that I will make the next time I make this is to double the crust (and perhaps use less sugar, as it was VERY sweet), and substitute some of the vanilla with almond extract to enhance the flavor of the amaretto. The vanilla flavor almost overpowered the flavor of the amaretto. Definitely a keeper of a recipe, and will be made again in this family! Thanks!

Sliced Tomatoes with Fresh Herb Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
This is a great way to enjoy tomatoes, and an easy side dish. It can be made with dried herbs as well (use 2 teaspoons each instead of 2 tablespoons) if you're short on fresh herbs. Sometimes I like to add red wine vinegar to taste to change it up a bit. Love it! Thank you!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I personally don't care for Chicken and Dumplings, but my kids wanted to try the dish. This recipe was easy to make, and the kids LOVED their meal. I will definitely be making it again, since it was something all of them could agree on! Thanks!

Mexican Beef Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
We enjoyed this dish quite a bit! Thank you! While it drives me nuts when reviewers rate a recipe when they've made all kinds of changes to it, I have to admit that I did add 1 tsp. of cumin to the mix because I am crazy for that spice! With or without the addition, it is a wonderful dish. Some words of advice -- cut the meat into evenly-sized pieces; most definitely simmer the meat until tender, while making certain that the meat is covered with enough salsa to keep it from drying out (I simmered it for 2 hours based on other reviews and the fact that my pieces of meat were rather large); the beef will only be as good as the green salsa that you use, so use whatever kind is your favorite for best results. You could certainly play with the "heat" of this recipe by adding more jalapenos if desired. 1 pound of meat was not enough for 4 people, however. Next time I will double the recipe. All in all, a super recipe -- thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Creme Cakes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
I made these exactly as written, and my family loved them! They are not overly sweet, and taste better than the supermarket treats that are similar. The only problem I had was that the milk and flour combination began to thicken before it came to a boil. I didn't notice this right away, so the mixture was a bit lumpy at first. I managed to whisk away most of the lumps, but a few teeny solid bits were left. Once the creme was between the layers of cake, however, the bits weren't noticeable. A fun treat, although it was a bit time consuming. I also partially froze the cake layers prior to spreading the creme. This helped the creme go on smoothly, and also made it easier to top the treat without breaking the top layer of cake. Thanks for a fun recipe! My family will certainly demand this again!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
This recipe had been stashed untried in my recipe box for awhile. I had chicken breasts on hand, but very few ingredients to make it into an interesting dinner. Voila'! The ingredients listed here are readily available, so it was an easy choice for me. In spite of having 2 T. of hot sauce in it, it was not overly hot. My daughter who does not like spicy food thought it was good; the rest of us loved it. If you want to add some heat, I'd add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to the sauce. On its own, however, it is easy to make, quick to put on the table and yummy! I'll be making this one again! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Jalapeno Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
This was an easy to make tasty main dish. I made half of the enchiladas without the Monterey Jack cheese to please family members, and they still turned out well. I expected a lot more heat from the spices and jalapeno peppers, but it really wasn't that spicy. However, I like a lot of spice and heat, so someone else might find it just right. I will probably serve this again.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
Easy to make, and great flavor -- served it at several dinner parties I catered for my parents, and very well received. Also easy and yummy enough for everyday meals at home! Thanks!

Easy Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This was super easy and quick to make, but like the other reviewer said, as written it is a bit bland. If I make it again, I will flavor it up a bit with spices and herbs that my family enjoys.

Creamy Summer Squash Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This soup was fairly easy to make, and tasted great. Although the name makes it sound like a summertime soup, it definitely tastes like a heavier, fall or winter soup. I tried this out on my parents for a dinner party they are having, and they loved it! Thanks!

Strawberrylicious Daiquiris

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I am enjoying a solitary evening of "recipe roaming", and planned on having a glass of wine. However, I came across this recipe, and decided it looked too Strawberrylicious to pass up. I cut the recipe to serve one (ok, two), and am enjoying it now! I'm a big fan of strawberry & pineapple combinations for smoothies, and let me tell you, the lime juice really adds a lot to brightening up the flavors in this daquiri. I did use some frozen pineapple in addition to the juice, as I had just a bit left over from something else. I elimitated the ice since the frozen fruit served that purpose. Mmm! Strawberrylicious is right! Enjoy!

Restaurant Style Salsa

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
This is called a blended salsa, not a salsa fresca with chunks. Some places do serve this style of salsa as opposed to the fresher kind. My teenagers and their friends love this style of salsa. Personally, I added more heat with fresh jalapeno peppers (sometimes canned works in a pinch) instead of pickled, and increased the garlic. Made the family happy! Thanks for a nice, basic blended salsa recipe!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
This smelled so yummy while it was baking it was difficult to wait! I like my food with lots of flavor, so I added 1 tsp. of garlic powder and 1 twp. black pepper to the mix. It would probably be just as scrumptious without the extra seasoning, because the onions really contribute to the overall taste. Easy to make, wonderful to eat! Thank you!
