Easy and Fast Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
This was fantastic! I work at a restaurant and they serve premarinated chicken breast for their c-salad and I always wanted to duplicate it, lets just say, this recipe is up to par or better. I followed the recipe as is, except I also added onion salt and blk pepper. I've actually made chicken like this before, but for some reason, this tasted much better (maybe it's because I cooked it over my new cast iron skillet). Anyhow, I just used the chicken, didn't follow the salad part, I like my own (romaine, carrots, red onions, feta, croutons, pepperocinis, tomatoes and cumcumber). I made a lot of the chicken, diced them up and froze them, so whenever I feel like a salad, it's ready to go in no time. Thanks for this keeper!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
I accidently bought fat free dressing and I didn't feel like running back to the store, so I searched and ran into this one. Lets say, I'm not a big fan of honey mustard dressing, but after reading all the wonderful reviews, decided to give this one a try. Followed the recipe with the exception of lime, and it was excellent! It wasn't heavy at all (like I had suspected). Very nice, subtle flavor. Everyone loved it. Thanks a lot! This is definitely a keeper.

Artichoke and Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
Excellent, cept I did alter it a bit. Left out the butter and leeks, made my own homemade and roasted peppers (roast pepper over flame until peppers are burnt, then place them in paper bag, let them cool off, then peel skin). I added 1-2 cloves of minced garlic and just handmixed all the ingredients, then baked it, no need to cook it over the stove. Served these with pita chips, they were great.

Kraut Bierocks

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
The filling was to die for! I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't measure out the cabbage, I just used about 1/2 a head of it and it was just enough. I also didn't use the dough from this recipe, I used the "Sweet Dinner Rolls" for the dough (since it's easy and I don't have powdered milk). Turned out excellent, except I had more filling than dough. Made them all and froze them.

Tater Tot Casserole III

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
Pretty good, although I did alter it a bit to reduce the fat content. I left out the butter and cornflakes. Used low fat sourcream and milk and added some chicken to the dish for more substance. I suggest you layer the dish with foil, it was a big mess after serving. Tasted pretty good, served it with hotsauce (which made it better) and it tasted much better when cooled off. But I think w/o the meat, it wouldn't have been as great and yes, it does need some zip to it.

Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2004
This is the first recipe I've tried on my new slow cooker and I must say, it's quite different, but good. I used frozen chicken thighs, and threw in all the ingredients in the pot (only used 1/2 the cream cheese) and let it cook over night. I served these over pasta and it was a bit..sour due to the dressing, but it wasn't overwhelming, still good though. I can't imagine serving this over rice though, the rice would soak up all the juices and it'd make it too sour. Good though, probably will make again (maybe even use sour cream).

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2004
This was good, but I don't see the big deal, it wasn't extraordinally. I did however followed some reviews by upping the cheese and nuking the apples but I think it would've been better if I just left the apples on the pie to cook instead because I did not detect any apple flavoring in the cheese part, only the apple part. And if you are using tart apples (i.e. granny smith) do use more sugar, my apples still were quite tart. Maybe next time, I'll just follow the recipe as is or nuke the apples and then combine the apple juices with the cheese mixture so I get more of an apple flavor.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2004
Good, but it didn't blow me away. We never had chicken marsala before and if this is what it's supposed to taste/be like, then I doubt we'll ever order it at a restaurant. Anyhow, just looking at the ingredients you can tell it would be bland with a very strong wine flavor. I left out the sherry, used 1/2 1/2 sweet marsala and chicken broth. I cooked bacon in some butter for more flavor and then finely processed the cooked bacon and threw it in the sauce. No one could detect it and it thickened the sauce nicely and gave it a great flavor. I also seasoned the sauce with blk pepper and added minced garlic prior to searing the chicken. Served this over angel hair pasta and it was a decent meal.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
These dinner rolls came out excellent! I too don't have a bread machine, so I followed another reviewers advice on what to do. Anyhow, I didn't understand the part of rolling out the dough, slathering on the butter, cutting them into strips and rolling them back up. I wanted dinner rolls, not sticky buns or that sort. So what I did was just added melted butter to the dough, kneaded it a bit, then divided them into 16 rolls, rolling them into balls. Packed them into a pan so they expand and touch one another (didn't want biscuits). Then I baked them right after I made little x's on the top for decor and buttered them slightly more. I also made 1/2 of the batch into herb rolls by simply adding thyme, marjoram and rosemary which also came out excellent. Thanks

Yummy Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
These are definitely easy and good, but not great. Anyhow, served these over a caesar salad and it made a nice meal with the chicken and rice combo.

Candied Garlic Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
This is definitely TOO sweet! I was so sure of this recipe, I mean, it has almost identical ingredients to dozens of other recipes I've tried, however, upon looking back at the ingredients, I noticed it was missing one key ingredient other similar recipes had: vinegar. I think that is why this was too sweet, it was missing vinegar and hence, a 4 star rating instead of a 5. I think because this recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of honey, maybe 1/4-1/2 cup of vinegar should be right? Anyhow, I added freshly grated ginger to the sauce to give it more of an asian flare. The good thing about this sauce is that it did carmelized nicely on the wings.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2003
Awesome! Lets just say, I wanted something to snack on, so I made these in a jiffy, forgot about them (they were in the oven for an hr) and they still tasted great. I made two servings and I ate them all myself! Anyhow, I used powdered garlic, vegetable oil, onion salt and left out the dill, red pepper flakes and parsley since those were what I had or didn't have on hand. I also left the skins on. I will definitely make this dish on New Years with the Rib Eye Roast I plan on making. Thanks!

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
This was fabulous! I didn't change one thing, except I didn't have tomato paste, so I used tomato sauce and left out the water. We had a pizza party (me and the kids) and they each got to make different kinds of pizza. They tasted great. My favorite pizza we made tonight was the vegetarian one (asparagus, marinated artichoke hearts, spinach, onions and mozarella). I bet this sauce will be great as a marinade too!

Easy Pizza Sauce II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
Sorry, I made this on two seperate pizzas and it was unappealing. It wasn't the pizzas or toppings, because I used another pizza sauce as well on other pizzas with the same ingredients and the other sauce made it taste great. This was easy, but not worth it.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
Yummy! This was delicious, fast and super easy to make! I was in a hurry to make dinner, so I browned the sausage, onion and used garlic powder all together. Then I just added all the ingredients in the pan. Added the broth, tomato sauce and carrots, no wine or diced tomatoes. I didn't used zucchini, I used frozen caulliflower and spinach instead. Used dry basil and fresh cilantro. Threw in premade tortelli (the ones in the packages) in the soup and let it all boil for about 30 minutes. Didn't need any cheese or toppings, it was great as it. Thank you!

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
MMM! It tasted wonderful. I've never like yams and after this recipe, although it's ironic, I still don't like yams, but this recipe tasted good (only when I'm tasting). I can't stand foods that are...mushy and have that texture and this unfortunately has that (as with oatmeal, blah blah). However, this did taste wonderful and I can see how everyone raved about it. The topping was to die for. It was so good, we ate all the topping before the yams. Anyhow, just as a recommendation, use a REALLY shallow dish and double the topping. MMM MMM MMM

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
This came out a little salty. I followed the recipe to the t, except I didn't thicken it with corn starch. I would recommend to either add extra water or maybe take out one cube of buillion?

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
I actually made this over the stove. To make a dark and richer broth, I used chicken wings and braised them in the pan first, then I added everything in and let it simmer for about 2 hrs. I also threw in cilantro and a few bay leaves. Used the stock to make chicken noodle soup.
