Bar Chicks - Blackened Chicken Sliders

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
This was a great starting point for a fabulous recipe! We used lemon instead of lime juice in the marinade, only 1 cup of white wine (per other reviews) and probably marinated it for only 6 hours, but it turned out perfectly. We used a blackening seasoning we already had and the chicken was the hit of our dinner party. We had lots of compliments on the aioli, though we did substitute ancho chili powder instead of chipotle due to availability. Thank you so much for the great recipe - these fabulous chicken sandwiches will definitely be making it into our regular recipe rotation!

Hurricane I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
This was a delightfully smooth and refreshing cocktail which was enjoyed by everyone at our Mardi Gras party. We did substitute Malibu Coconut rum and gave everything (garnishes withstanding) a good shake in a cocktail shaker, but otherwise made it as stated. Thank you for a great recipe that we will be putting into our drink rotation!

Sunny Orange Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
This was a perfect summer beverage! Like others, I used freshly squeezed orange juice (4-5 navel oranges) as well as the juice of one large lemon and one grapefruit. I also skipped the zest/peel addition, which I am sure adds a nice zing but I had already tossed my citrus. Furthermore, I also substituted ginger ale/sprite to make it even more refreshing. Was a huge hit paired with smoked grilled chicken! Thanks so much, Martha!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
Perfect addition to my soup recipe collection! I loved that this recipe required pantry staples and came together very quickly. With the addition of 1 clove garlic and 1 shallot, sauteed in a little butter prior to adding the tomatoes and broth, this easily rivals any tomato bisque I have had in a restaurant. I also substituted diced canned tomatoes and ran my immersion blender through prior to adding the cream. Thanks for a great recipe, Sarah!

Carrot Zucchini Saute

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
With the addition of a large clove of minced garlic as well as a pat of butter in the oil, this was an excellent and easy side dish. Great flavors, nice texture, and a low-maintenance vegetable side dish that will be in the regular rotation at our house!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
This was the basis of an amazing Chicken and Dumplings recipe for my family! We followed the advice of several other reviewers and added a few changes of our own...we also used 1 can each of cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup. Instead of chicken broth, I used one packet of Knorr's Chicken Stock Concentrate and reconstituted it with 3 1/2 c. of boiling water. I also doubled the milk. We added fresh chopped basil, 3 cloves minced fresh garlic, 4 peeled, sliced carrots, increased the onion to 1/2 c. and omitted the celery. As other reviewers suggested, we cooked the chicken and vegs in a dutch oven and did the soup mixture in a different pan, adding it to the dutch oven when the chicken was ready. The two other changes we made were to add frozen peas just prior to the dumplings and we used the recipe on the Bisquick box for the dumplings. This made things a lot easier. Prior to adding to the peas, we did add 1 tbsp of cornstarch with 3 tbsp of cold water to thicken the soup. With our modifications, this was a rich, satisfying meal for a cold (as in 20 degrees below zero) winter night!!

Easiest Teriyaki Marinade Ever

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
We used this marinade for chicken kebabs and were fabulously impressed with how they turned out. Easy to make, minimal ingredients and no exotic ingredients called for. Marinated chicken (cut into chunks) for about 3 hours and it came out moist and deliciously full of flavor. I did add about 1/4 tsp of ground ginger as well, and would certainly recommend that addition. We will definitely be using this one again!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
These were a great way to change up our usual mashed-potatoes-or-potato-wedges rut. I did sub cream cheese (4 oz) for the sour cream and also added a sprinkling of dry Ranch Dressing mix (maybe 1/4 packet). I also didn't have green onions or bacon, but they tasted great anyway! Could easily be pre-assembled, frozen, and baked the second time later.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
Excellent, easy pasta recipe with minimal ingredients and maximal taste. We actually withheld the pepper flakes so we could feed this to our young daughter; my husband just added some to his pasta when we sat down to eat and loved it. Also used a little more onion and garlic and added fresh ground pepper to the sauce as it cooked. Topped with parmesan - you can't go wrong.

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Excellent, easy soup. I also used 1 lg onion, 3 carrots, 3 potatoes, 3 stalks celery, 3 cloves garlic, minced, and 3 chicken bouillon cubes. I utilized 1 1/2 c. milk and 1 1/2 c. half-and-half. I had good results sauteeing the onion and garlic first until translucent and then adding to the pot, which I had added an additional 1/2 c. water as well as the bouillon cubes. I also used an immersion blender to puree the vegetables and then added the cheese as well as good amounts of salt and pepper. It had a thick, chowder-like consistency and was a huge winner both immediately as well as leftover. A must-have for your winter soup arsenal!

Chocolate Strawberry Banana Milkshake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Simple, on-hand ingredients, easy to make, and easy to modify for your tastes. I used a whole banana and fresh strawberries and supplemented with a few ice cubes with great results. This one will become a mainstay for us.
