Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Very good, however to get the sauce thick and caramelized I had to boil it down and add cornstarch (did this after I pulled the chicken out of the oven). Then poured the sauce back over the chicken and broiled for a couple minutes and it got nice and gooey. It reminded me and my husband of a dish from a chinese restaurant.

Italian Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I love dressing up cooked veggies and this is definitely a keeper! I got nervous that the onion and garlic would overtake the dish too much so I cut back on the onion. I also used about 1/3 cup of chicken stock cause I wanted the flavor of it and didn't think 1 T. would do the job.

Newport Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I'm giving this 5 stars b/c I think as written it will be 5 stars. We had to substitute chicken broth for some of the clam juice and also didn't have enough clams. We added some carrots and celery too. Next time I will follow the recipe to a T and I'm sure it will be even better.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I like the idea of not having to brown the meat first. I always hate crock pot recipes that seem to make just as many dishes as if you are cooking a meal on the stove. Tasty and easy.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Gotta love a basic, simple sloppy joe recipe. I added some zucchini b/c I had one sitting in the fridge (good way to sneak veggies into kids food). I also added a couple teaspoons of yellow mustard and used balsamic vinegar in place of white.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
So easy and so good! I used 3 chicken leg quarters and the meat literally fell off the bone, it was barely any work to shred it! We served w/ sour cream, crushed tortilla chips and cheese. Great dinner for a cold fall evening.

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I wanted a recipe that didn't use cream of mushroom soup and was still easy. This is it! Yum, yum, yum! A great comfort food. The only thing I changed was to use fresh mushrooms instead of canned which I would definitely recommend! This would also be good with some sliced onion added w/ the mushroom sauce as well.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
I'm giving this 4 stars for now because I want to change a few things next time and then it might be perfect. I will definitely use all clam juice next time rather than water. And will add one extra can of clams (I used chopped, not minced). I cooked up 3 slices of bacon and sauteed the onion, carrot and celery in the bacon fat for just a few minutes. I also used cider vinegar b/c I didn't have any red wine vinegar...I was super nervous about adding the vinegar b/c it seemed weird, but it worked!

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Easy weeknight dinner and quite tasty! I did take other reviewers advice and marinate the chicken for an hour in the pesto. Then baked and added a 4 cheese blend at the end rather than mozzarella. I only put tomatoes on my chicken but didn't think they added much to the dish.

Honey Lime Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
Hubby and I loved these wings! I made these as one of three different kinds tonight and wish I would have made them all like this! All the flavors were subtle but worked so well together and I loved that they weren't "swimming" in sauce. Oh and I added just a little bit of cayenne, paprika, salt and garlic to the flour.

Chili Rick's

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Made this for my daughters 2nd birthday party (mostly all adults) and it was a huge hit. I got a lot of compliments! I toned down the spice as a lot of my family doesn't care for super spicy things. Also cut the bbq sauce in half per other reviews and I'm so glad! I think it would have been way too much like bbq and not chili had I added the full amount. Served it with fritos, cheese and sour cream.

Frog Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Very cute cupcakes! Made these for my daughter's 2nd birthday and yes, they are time consuming and tedious but well worth it. I cut the marshmallows in half and then cut a little piece off the bottom to make them sit flat. Used a mini pair of tongs for dipping the mallows in water and then coating w/ sugar. That was the hardest part I think. Putting the chocolate chip eyes and the mouths on was easy.

Grilled Pork Chops with Balsamic Caramelized Pears

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
The flavor of this was great. I think I need to work on the look of it though. The pear and onion sauce wasn't very saucy so it didn't look all that great. I love that you can make everything ahead of time so yes, while it's a little time consuming, it's not hard per say. I managed to make this on a week night with a toddler running around! I love brining the pork chops and will probably do this a lot from now on.

Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
It doesn't get any easier than this! So much better than buying pre made frosting!

Little Broccoli Bites

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
"As is" these are a little plain. I would definitely dip them in some sort of sauce, like a spicy honey mustard. They could also use more seasoning. I like the poultry seasoning flavor but think some garlic might kick it up a little. I think next time too, I will turn them half way through cooking so they get brown on both sides.

Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
Yum, yum, yum! Definitely using this marinade again! I only marinated (whole chicken legs) for about 4 hours and they were delicious. Next time I would like to marinate for at least 8 hours or overnight.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
The pico de gallo is great and totally makes a boring chicken and cheese quesadilla outstanding! Definitely glad I stumbled upon this recipe and will be making again and again.

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I've never made brownies from scratch and was sure I was going to mess these up cause of the reviews about sticking, drying out etc. My husband said they are some of the best brownies he's ever had...way better than any box mix. I'm not known for being a baker so if I can do this, anyone can. They did not stick at all, they came out super moist, not cakey which is how we like them. I only baked them for 28 minutes and that was plenty.

Stuffed Jalapenos III

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
These are really good but I feel they need just a little something. Not sure what though, I guess something mixed in with the cream cheese to give just a little more oomph.

Green Bean Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
Ok, this might be how we eat green beans for the rest of the summer! This is great, the blue cheese gives such a nice tangy creaminess. I substituted some things simply because what I had on hand. Used scallions instead of red onion and almonds instead of pecans. I also cut back on the oil and vinegar. A little goes a long way.
