Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
I made this as written. The Panko crumbs didn't get as brown as I would have liked but it was a 5 star for sure. I served it with Mushroom Orzo (from this site) and that made the dish a ten star! I also served it with mixed greens, strawberries, sugared pecan salad on the plate also. Just a little salad to make it look pretty. MY DH has not stopped talking about it.

Mushroom Orzo

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
This is fantastic. I used chicken broth and about 3/4 cup of coarsely chopped onion. ( I didn't have pearl onions in the house) I used Sauvignon Blanc wine. I served it with Chicken Asparagus Roll Ups from this site. Just a little mixed greens with strawberries and sugared pecans, and Hazelnut raspberry dressing on the plate also.. It looked beautiful and tasted great. You can make the roll ups ahead of time. A wonderful company dinner. I think this was my DH favorite dinner ever.

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
I don't know what I did wrong becauseI followed the recipe to a T. The only thing i think might have made it so bad was my Kirklands Balsamic vinegar. It had been in my pantry about a year and was not expired. it was way too sour, and the presentation was not pretty. A dark brown.. I did as another person, made mashed potatoes and fresh streamed broccoli . I doubled the sauce recipe as others had done. I wish I could figure out what the problem was.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
I used two chickens from Costco, roasted them about 1 hour 50 minutes, when cool took the meat off of the bones, simmered the bones and skin in chicken broth, i use just Aldies chicken broth, and drippings that were in the pan. (don't use water) simmer about 1 1/2 hours, or till meat and bones flavor the broth. I then I strained the broth for my soup. Be sure to used the drippings. I continued to make my soup, I added onions celery carrots, when veg's were done I added rice or noodles and some of the meat. It makes a lot, so I freeze some of the broth and add the rice or noodles or whatever I'm in the mood for when I take it from the freezer you will never have better soup, but don't skim off all of the chicken fat, that is what makes it good and cures a cold. (you can indulge one in awhile)I have a food saver so I freeze the broth in a plastic container and when it is frozen solid I remove from the container and vacuum pack it. I usually freeze 4 cup containers because it it just two of us. I also cube the cooked meat that I removed from the bones and vacuum pack that in two or three cup packages for further casserole. The only way to make good chicken soup is to roast the chicken. Enjoy!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This i so good. I used leftover ham from Christmas and sliced it thin. It must be the baked ham, not deli ham. I followed the recipe exactly but I couldn't roll them nice, even tho I did pound them, so I had to just fold a couple of them and they did turn out a little dry. Next time I wouldn't cook as long, in fact I would check them after ten minutes. I will make them every time I have leftover baked ham and a good swiss cheese. I used chardonnay wine. I think any white wine would work. I also had two pounds of chicken breast and it made four pieces.

Cranberry Nut Bread II

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I used whole frozen cranberries fresh squeezed orange juice (only because that is all I had, took more time but I was able to use up the oranges, and make the zest. I baked 70 minutes. Next time I will raise the shelf one notch higher. I was afraid it was going to burn. Very moist and good. I think using the frozen berries without thawing helped make a moister bread. Will make again. We both just had a piece with coffee, nice afternoon break.

Orzo and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
This is a very refreshing great salad. I only had basil tomato feta so used that, but I'm sure it would be just as good with regular feta cheese. it would be good to take as a dish to pass also. I will make it again for sure, my husband gave it 10 stars! I didn't have enough fresh dill, my plants are young, so used dried with the fresh. I also used dried parsley and it was still good. The second time I made it I used up some fresh mozzarella that I had, it was just as good. It is so refreshing. This time I had enough fresh dill and parsley.

Pineapple Bacon Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
I did not care for this recipe. I could never understand when someone would say they followed the recipe exactly and it was bad, when most of the reviews were four or five stars. Well, that is the case here. The only thing I did differently was I did it on the stove grill. I used 88 percent ground meat, and they didn't fall apart and I used Sweet Baby Rays Hot and Spicy.. Dole pineapple slices. My husband never complains and he said I don't have to make them again.. I love all of the ingredients, but not in this recipe. I don't understand why they tasted unappealing., zero stars from me,

Barbequed Steelhead Trout

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
OK, I also bought the Steelhead from Costco (by the way, no skin). I wanted to try it. I didn't know what kind of BBQ sauce to use ( i had Sweet Baby Rays Sweet and Spicy and The Raspberry Chipotle, but didn't want to use them because they seemed too spicy) so I took he advice of another reviewer and made a four serving of Popular BBQ sauce. It was fantastic. I baked it on foil that i built up the edges on so it wouldn't run off. I baked it at 400 degrees for about 17 minutes and then put the BBQ sauce on and baked for about two minutes more and then under the broiler for an additional 1 or 2 minutes

Asian Chicken Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
I'm addicted. I would give it ten stars if I could. I used slivered almonds instead of pine nuts and didn't use the snow peas, too expensive. I used about two tablespoons sesame oil and the rest vegetable oil. The sesame oil really made it good, don't skip it. It was even better the second day, the flavors melded beautifully. I kept going to the refrigerator and taking a fork full the next morning , I must have done that 20 times. I had more chicken so used about two cups, but you wouldn't even need the chicken. It is not overpowering with the soy sauce . You gotta make this one, its a keeper.I don't know how some people could say it is bland

Corn-Stuffed Crown Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Wow, I've made crown roasts before and they were always good, this was the very best. The corn bread stuffing was a ten star. I had a hard time finding the corn bread stuffing and finally found Mrs. cubbisons I doubled the recipe for the stuffing and didn't have quite enough corn so added a can of creamed corn.. It worked great. I had a ten pound roast and it wa done in three hours, a very little pink. I served it with a spinach strawberry salad with blue cheese and sugar glazed pecans, wild riice mushroom soup ,mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus with Gorgonzola butter. The meal was perfect, every one raved about it. Brandy Alexander's with Christmas cookies for dessert. I think it was one of my best. I will do the same thing next Christmas. I Si L enjoy the leftovers.

Cheddar Cabbage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
My husband couldn't say enough about this. He said I should give it 10 stars. I didn't have cream of celery soup so I sautéd a little celery in some of the butter and used cream of mushroom soup. I crushed some oyster crackers and mixed with the rest of the butter. I didn't have Corn flakes. I thought it was excellent also

Poulet Parisienne

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Very good. I made just like the recipe but I had about a cup of fresh mushrooms that I sautéd in butter and cooking wine, in addition to the can of mushrooms. I had very large chicken breasts and it was done in 1/14 hours. I served it with atossed salad and orzo that I browned and then cooked in chicken broth, when almost done I added some chopped frozen broccoli . It worked well with the chicken.. I will make it again, my DH really enjoyed it.

Maple-Garlic Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
Fantastic.. I just used 1 /2 cup of maple syrup and another clove of garlic. I marinated it for about six hours, 375 in oven for about 40 minutes. It was perfect. I let is sit about five minutes. My dh agreed if we would have had it in a fine restaurant we would go back for it. Somehow, it isn't the same in my kitchen. Dish's, TV, etc... I baked some little potatoes with it and had fresh green beans. I would have had a salad but I screwed up my new computer and was a little uptight with that.

If you like sweet sour red cabbage this is it! Fantastic. I make a batch and freeze enough for my husband and myself in food saver bags. It is a wonderful side dish.

Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
This was very good and will make it again. The only change I made was I used fresh Ginger. When I have leftover fresh Ginger root I wrap it in saran wrap and freeze it and when I need it I grate it while still frozen. I prefer to use the fresh. Wrap what I still have and put it back in the freezer, that works great and I don't have to throw out ginger and always seem to have some in the house. I grated about 3/4 of a teaspoon for this recipe. It was not too much. My husband loved it.

Aunt Kaye's Rhubarb Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I served some to company, they didn't say much except they were very full. Maybe I fed them too much before dessert.
