Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
Amazing!!! Took the advice of other users and doubled the sauce, also covered with foil for the first 30 minutes, then removed the foil, basted again and cooked uncovered for the final 30 minutes. I used 8 bone-in skinless thighs and they came out perfectly, so juicy and tender!! My 11 year old son actually gave me a fist bump after his first bite and asked that I add this to our nightly meal rotation. Served with wild rice pilaf and broccolini. Will definitely be making this again!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly as posted and I found the dijon crust to be very bland. Fortunately I had enough of the honey dijon dressing left over to use as a sauce on the side which somewhat saved it. pretty disappointed overall. it's unlikely i'll be using this recipe again.

Delicious Spinach and Turkey Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Excellent recipe! Light and delicious. Like most other reviewers, I layer the spinach rather than adding to the mixture. A great go-to recipe when you're expecting company.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Followed this recipe to the tee. Not all that impressed. I might try it again, but it needs major tweaking. 4 boullion cubes is too much! It makes the soup very salty. I'll follow the advice of others and use chicken stock, and may try baking the pumpkin first.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I agree with the other 4000+ reviews - definitely the best pototo soup I've ever had. This recipe is a keeper, and a must for a cold, rainy day. No changes needed, but I might add more ham next time.

Proper English Cottage Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Being from Australia, cottage pie is a favourite when it comes to comfort food for the family. Overall, this recipe is pretty close to the orignial. Defeinitely omit the cinnamon. Not sure why you would want to add cinnamon to a traditional cottage pie. Like a lot of other reviewers, i added worsteshire sauce, approx 2 teaspoons, as well as 1/2 cup of peas. I'd also recommend cutting back on the cheese. Just enough to brown on top of the mashed potato is sufficient. Finally, stick to lean ground beef...you can cut back on the the oily, greasy film which can overpower the taste of all other ingredients...as well as the waistline

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I've now made this recipe on several occasions and it certainly doesn't disappoint. It's quick, simple and very very tasty. Also apparently perfect for those last minute dinner guests. I served with multigrain penne (tossed with garlic, olive oil and chopped fresh parsley) and zucchini. My 5 year old is also a big fan.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This is a great recipe, but with a few modifications. Firstly, do NOT skip the flouring process, it really does give the chicken pieces a nice golden brown appearance. And I'd recommend olive oil over vegetable oil, for obvious reasons. I left out the green peppers but added a small can of sliced black olives. For full flavor and the most tender chicken, cook in a covered casserole dish in the oven at a medium heat for about an hour. Serve over white rice with steamed broccolini on the side.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Everyone enjoyed this, even my 5 year old. I took suggestions from other reviewers and didn't flour the chicken...I'm glad I didn't, it turned out perfectly and very tender. I also used portabello mushrooms, they have a great flavor and don't go "soggy" like regular mushrooms. Finally, I would definitely recommend sticking with the 1/4 cup of balsamic vingar as called for in the original recipe. I was just shy of the 1/4 cup because I was worried about it being too tart (based on other reviews). It definitely requires the quarter cup for full flavor. I served with wild rice pilaf and steamed broccoli. A very simple and quick recipe, light in calories and full in flavor = a keeper

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I've got to be honest...based on the reviews I expected a lot more. I followed the recipe exactly as posted, but substituted cilantro for the oregano as recommended by many other reviewers. I found these a little bland. And whatever you do...DO NOT saute the chicken for 20 mins before adding the other ingredients, it will dry out. Not sure what I'd do differently next time to improve it. Possibly do the chicken in the crockpot, then shred the meat. Not a bad recipe, but could definitely use some modifying.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
This really is better than restaurant quality! My only advice, it needs a vegetable. I added snow peas and next time maybe I'll try brocoli, but it does need something other than onions and shrimp. Great recipe!

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
on another note...i used 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and it added a nice flavor...but any more would've been overpowering i think.

Spinach and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Yummy! As suggested by some other reviewers I added chopped red onion and torn fresh spinach instead of frozen. I also added grilled chicken strips to make it more of a meal than a side.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I think I expected a lot more based on the reviews, but this recipe was just okay. I followed the recipe exactly using a 1.7 lb tenderloin (not previously frozen), and yet it took a lot longer than 45 mins to cook. Also, by the time it had cooked a lot of the wine sauce had evaporated. I may try this recipe again.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
Very yummy! I didn't make any changes to the original recipe and it turned out really well - and so easy. I also used Pace chunky medium salsa as recommended by others, and used low fat cheese and sour cream to keep it lite. I shared this with some of the ladies from my office and it was a hit with everyone. Served with Spanish rice and corn and black beans. This is a keeper!

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
Good, but not great...I've definitely tasted better. However, I did rate it a 4 because I believe with a few modifications it could be a winner. Next time I'll take the suggestion of others and add bacon and maybe another can of minced clams.

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
Better than restaurant quality. This recipe makes a lot but it tastes even better the next day, and freezes well. I agree with other reviewers, wait to add salt until after you've added the cheese.

Sunday Gumbo

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
I didn't change a thing and made this recipe exactly as posted - it turned out brilliantly!! This is definite keeper, especially for the winter months. It wasn't too spicy, so if you like a little more bite, increase the cayenne pepper. I used 1/2 teaspoon of the cayenne pepper and spicy italian sausage and didn't find it too over-powering.
