Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
This was really good. Crisped up the tortillas in the oven and seasoned the chicken with taco seasoning. Served with sour cream and guacamole. Easy and delish!

Seafood Creole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Tried this one last night...very good with very little "adjusting". I used all fresh seafood but had to use cod instead of haddock as my grocery store was out of it. Personally I like it pretty spicy, but I heeded the warnings of others and cut the hot sauce in half opting to allow others to add it to taste when served. Upon trying the final product, I would have wanted the full amount of hot sauce but others raved. I added little bit of corn starch near the end to thicken the broth a bit. Served it with a small amount of brown rice placed in the bottom deep bowls then ladled the creole over it. A sprinkle of shredded Parmesan, garlic bread for dipping the flavorful sauce and a "company-worthy" dinner is served!

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
This was very easy to make and VERY tasty. I did make a few changes based on the reviews of others and to try make it a bit "lighter." First I sauteed the vegetables including a bit of minced garlic and omitting the onions in a bit of olive oil. Then I added the meat increasing to 1 lb and using ground turkey (no butter needed). I used Ore Ida frozen potatoes O'Brien which has both onions and peppers in it already with a low sodium broth. I added the flour to 3T of I Can't Believe it's not butter and added skim milk. For the cheeses, like many other reviewers, I used half Velveeta and half Kraft 2% Colby, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cubes. I adjusted the seasons at the end adding a little salt and pepper to taste during the final simmer. It came out hearty and satisfying on a cold winter night!

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
This dip is awesome and is always devoured wherever I take it. On the advice of a few others, I made a few alterations... Some mentioned that using low fat sour cream and light mayo ruined the taste but I just had to try and get some of the calories/fat grams down down (I certainly have made it "full strength" and it was YUM). I used 1/2 cup regular mayo and 1/2 cup light mayo; 1/2 cup fat free sour cream and 1/2 cup regular; lastly 1/2 lb lower sodium bacon and 1/2 regular. I added in 8 oz of fat free cream cheese as well as a hand full of mild cheddar shredded cheese. For the tomatoes, I used one large Roma which I cut in half and squeezed over the sink to get the moisture/seeds out before dicing. I added in a couple of shakes of garlic powder and one scallion diced finely. I whipped it all together with the bacon using a hand mixer on the lowest speed. Finally I stirred in half a can of petite diced tomatoes which I drained in a colander on some paper towels to get all of the moisture I could out before covering with saran wrap and popping into the fridge for a few hours. For serving I spread the dip into a deep glass pie pan, put a pile of shredded lettuce in the center, topped with some diced tomatoes and the remaining bacon. Most recently we ate it with sea salt bagel chips and Fritos scoops. I am happy to report that the "lightened up" version was gone just as fast!

Chicken Pesto Pizza

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
This was a pretty good jumping off point and I have no doubt it would have been good made "as is". I did make a few changes based upon what I had on hand. Used 1 cup chicken and one cup shrimp that I chopped up. I also marinated both the chicken and shrimp in Italian seasoning (I used Emeril's but any would work) for about an hour before cooking. I sauteed the chicken, and a few minutes before it was done, I added shrimp then set aside. In the same pan I added a bit more olive oil and sauteed three thinly sliced white mushrooms and just a smidge of red onion (instead of artichoke which I did not have) until tender. Assembled in the same order adding 2 sliced Roma tomatoes before the chicken and shrimp. I used 5 cheese Italian blend and sprinkled all with a little more seasoning before popping into the oven.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
This was truly awesome stuff! Read through the reviews and made only one or two tweaks...left out the sugar, allowed guests to add ginger ale as opposed to carbonated water to their own glasses per their own taste, and sliced up some strawberries, blackberries and apples to add to the citrus. Tossed in some frozen grapes to each glass to act as ice cubes and there you have it. I was having a paella party (try the Paella I recipe incidentally, you won't be disappointed in that one either) and even the men drank this as opposed to beer. Only mistake was not quadrupling the batch, made only as double and it was gone in no time!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
This was pretty good...used ricotta as some reviewers recommended. Next time I will probably throw in a small can of tomato sauce or diced tomatoes. Not quite "saucy" enough for me. Others loved it as is though!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
I was feeding a group of people so I had to adjust the serving size to 4. When I saw that it took 1/4 of butter and 3 cups of heavy cream I sprung into "healthier version" action. To serve 4, I used 2 cups of half and half. I reserved about a 1/4 c of it and mixed some corn starch in before adding it to the mix. I also sauteed my chicken in 1T of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and added olive oil along with it to the pan. The only other change I made was to add more Cajun seasoning to the sauce. We like it spicy!

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
This is really good. I "lightened" it up a bit by using Classico's Light Alfredo and half and half. Also used wheat penne. Maybe next time a little more cayenne because I like it spicy but, overall it was yum!

Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
This was wonderful...I only tweaked it a tiny bit based upon the reviews of others. I added a few sliced button mushrooms, filled the tomato paste can with some cabernet (red wine) and added it, used Italian seasoning and also added a bay leaf. Simmered it slowly for well over an hour an mamma mia...this was good!
