Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
Everything turned out really great except for the amount of sauce the recipe made. Not sure what happened. I took all the recommendations I read from previous reviews. I started out sprinkling salt, pepper, & paprika over the chicken about a half hour before. Browned the chicken first (did not cook all the way through, about 5 mins only) then added the garlic right before adding the wine sauce. I also cut the wine in half w/chicken broth and simply sprinkled brown sugar over the chicken. The taste was really great! Only problem was it barely made any leftover sauce on the side for our noodles. I think next time I will add more wine/chicken broth & not leave the lid off the entire time during the simmer.

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This recipe turned out great for me w/the modifications from other reviews. I used chicken broth instead of water, omitted the potatoes & celery (did not even miss them), used 1 1/2 cups of cauliflower, half an onion, and doubled the cheese (definitely needed). I also only used 2 cups of milk (subbed FF half & half for 1 cup of it) and added 2 minced garlic cloves. Other modifications included sautéing the garlic, onions, & butter before adding it to the veggies and using my Vitamix to blend everything a little more. The only change I would make next time is definitely cut down on the butter! There's no need for 1/4 cup.

Linguine with Chicken and Sauteed Vegetables

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
This was so good! Followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't use chicken. The only thing I would change is definitely double the veggies. I felt like there was barely any in the dish. Otherwise, two thumbs up and will be making again for sure!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
Unfortunately, I took the advice of other reviewers and subbed half & half for the heavy cream to cut down on the fat. I wish I would have made it as directed. The initial taste was good but there wasn't much substance and the aftertaste was very bland. I'd recommend making the dish as is and you can always make changes next time. It did however taste a little better after sitting in the fridge when we ate it for leftovers the next day.

Quick Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
I was so pleasantly surprised by this sauce! The only changes made were I cut down on the flour based on other reviews (I could have cut down some more bc it still turned out pretty thick) and doubled the cheese. I also added salt/pepper, chicken, and used parmesan reggiano cheese. Very tasty for using half & half and such an easy dish!!

Russian Chicken with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
This turned out fabulous!! My husband loved it as well. I only used 2 chicken breasts but kept everything else the same. The extra sauce went great over rice. The only thing I may change is adding more garlic next time but I'll definitely be making this part of my rotation!
