Quick and Easy Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
This is a darned good clam chowder. I used 4 small cans of clams (plus the juice of 3), 2 cans potato soup, 1 can celery soup, and one can of bumble bee clam chowder mixer. I also used only one pint of heavy whipping cream. Threw in two healthy handfuls of roughly chopped new potatoes and 1/2 a chopped onion. About 1 and a half tsp of white pepper and a toasted bread bowl did the trick. Double YUM.

Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I just eyeballed this one (didn't measure anything out perfectly) and it turned out great! I know some people commented that the sugar was too much. I did not pack the sugar, and went a little easy on the scoop. I found the sweetness to be just right

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
So simple, yet so delicious. I followed this recipe as indicated. (No broth at the bottom, no turning the bird, nothing fancy.) Because I had a 5lb bird, I cooked it for 2 hours on high and then 5 hours on low. Fantastic. I also used some "One Step Chicken" seasoning by McCormick. It came out perfectly.

Corn Tortilla Quiche

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
You can use anything for the meat--ground beef, quartered mushrooms, etc. I love this one. So easy to throw together. I will say though, I used a thick pie pan and it took an extra 25 min to cook thoroughly.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
I added about 1 tsp of cumin and 1/2 tsp of pepper. It gave the tabbouleh the warmth needed and leveled out the lemon.

Pasta Bake

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
This is so simple to make. I was originally confused by what kind of pasta mostaccioli is--turns out it's penne, but when I was at the grocery nobody knew what that was so I ended up with campanelle (which was the frilly-est one available). I liked the extra twirl over penne. I added one packet of Good Seasonings Zesty Italian when cooking the meat, and used 4oz of fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I put 1/2 the cheese on top. I also used a Corningware deep white circular dish and kept the glass lid on until the last 10 min of cooking. This kept the edges moist and let the cheese brown at the end.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I have made this recipe several times, but this last time I didn't realize until after I put the dough together that I had too few bananas and no applesauce to substitute. In a pinch, I added sour cream instead. It didn't challenge the flavor of the bananas and provided enough moisture to keep this bread tasty. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon and sugar at the bottom of the greased dish. It added a hint of complexity to the smell of the bread. Delicious.

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
I made it exactly as instructed except instead of cayane, I used crushed red peppers. I think it would be great either way.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
This dish was fantastic. I too added a dash of cornstarch at the end to thicken it up a bit. Also, I cooked the green peppers longer than the rest because they tend to be a rougher pepper than red/yellow/orange. I was tired of working with chicken breasts, so I used chicken sausage instead. I will make this one again for sure.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Mine turned out thick enough and with plenty of kick. I used a fresh green chili pepper instead of canned. I also added 3/4 cup of dried black beans at the start of cooking. As for spices, I added several dashes of ground red chilis, cumin, paprika, and chili powder. I also added two tsp of chili sauce (I love foods with a punch). I cooked it on low for 7 hours, then high for the last hour to make sure the beans were done through.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
I served these at a party and the group went wild for them. These were more popular than the gourmet cheeses and expensive wine. Go figure. When I made them, I put 5-6 on wooden skewers, then simply cut the skewers into mini-sized toothpicks when filling the round heated serving dish. I have a convection oven and set it to convect-roast to ensure the bacon would brown.

Sun-Dried Tomato Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
I made this dip because I was in a rush to bring an appetizer to a party. It was a HUGE hit at the party! The only thing I would change next time is using one clove of garlic instead of two. I'm a garlic lover, but people said they could smell the dip from across the room. Also, I only had 4oz of cream cheese, but it seemed to be fine without more. I used several dashes of Tobasco, and instead of fresh basil, I used a few dashes of dried. It was delish!

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
This is the perfect chicken marinade. If you cut the recipe to 16 servings, that's about right for a 4 lb butchered bird.

Sweet Potato Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I left out the water and salt. Used a 1/2 teaspoon for everything that said "pinch." If you love spicy chili like I do, add a jalapeno for good measure.

Baby Greens with a Warm Gorgonzola Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I used goat cheese because the grocery was out of gorgonzola. I also added one thinly sliced shallot to the mix. I also doubled the amount of sliced almonds for extra protein. If I make this again, I will probably cut the sugar in half as I do not favor sweet salads.
