Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
This recipe did make very moist, flavorful chicken! I read a lot of the reviews and combined them to make these changes... I used 6 chicken breasts, a whole head of garlic, doubled the bread crumbs and "green canister" Parmesan cheese, and a dash of fresh black pepper. I put the oil/garlic mixture that had cooled off into a resealable bag, added the chicken breasts and squished the oil and garlic around each piece to coat (worked great!). Dipped each piece in the crumb mixture than cooked for 30 minutes at 425 degrees. Added fresh grated Parmesan on each piece of chicken at the table. Served with fresh bread and broccoli.

Oven Baked Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
We all- kids and adults- loved these! Easy to do, just takes a bit of time in the oven. Baked at 425 degrees for a total of 25 minutes, stirring twice. Elminated all butter, added ranch dressing mix and a tiny sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Yummmmy! Like gourmet fries...but not fried!

Cream Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
I just made this cake today and it was really, really good! I read all 83 reviews before making it and decided to make the following changes because these alterations appeared in many of the reviews... I used 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. I beat the eggs for 10 minutes before adding the sugar and vanilla, a little at a time. Came out moist and not dense. Enjoyed by all. Thanks for the great recipe (and for all the people who took the time to write up a review)!

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Like most of the previous reviews, I was amazed at how easy and GOOD this recipe was! Followed ingredients to a T... baked at 350 for 20-25 minutes then set the oven on Broil and broiled for 10 minutes, or until the top starts to get brown and bubbly. Highly recommend. Enjoyed with rice and veggie- simple, simple!

Easy and Fast Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
This was a huge hit with our family of five, including three kids! I put each ingredient in its own bowl and then everyone could pick out the toppings they liked (although almost everyone put all of the toppings on in the end, anyway!). Here are all the ingredients we ended up with: chicken strips (sprinkled with Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning), bacon pieces (from Oscar Meyer), lettuce, sliced cucumber, black olives, fresh Parmesan cheese (this was a big hit with the kids!), croutons and, of course, Cesar dressing. Super tasty!

Spicy Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
I thought these were great, but they didn't really fly with the kids. I made 1/2 with raisins and 1/2 with choc. chips and even the choc. chip ones didn't get rave reviews. But, I loved them! A little bit of a strange texture and didn't keep that well, past a couple days. I think I would make these again to serve fresh if I was hosting a tea/coffee at my house.

Fabulous Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
This is a great soup and super yummy. However, I feel like it needs an extra kick to make is 5 stars. We added a small dash of cayenne pepper. Plus had cheese and bacon for toppings, if desired. I highly recommend the recipe, but without an extra something it is quite bland. Like other reviewers, I only roasted for 20 minutes and that was plenty of time. I also added 4 cups of broth and no water for more flavor.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
These are the best pork chops I've ever made! I only cooked them for an hour total and they came out great. I would recommend flipping the chops half way through baking (before adding the soup mixture) and then taking the foil off. Highly recommend.

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Definitely a 5 star!!! Took this to a BBQ and it was a huge hit. I read through almost all the reviews before I made it and changed these thing per popular opinion by other reviewers: used 1/4 cup white sugar + 1/4 cup brown sugar no powdered sugar 1/4 tsp. cinnamon + 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg pinch of salt baked for 45 minutes. SO good!!! And a great way to use up lots of extra carrots! Note: 2 pounds of carrots is equal to approximately 12-16 medium carrots OR 7 cups of peeled and diced carrots

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
These are great! I cut the potatoes with a mandolin on the french fry setting, which made it fast and easy, but I think they came out too thin. The taste is awesome! I did have trouble with them slightly sticking, so I think next time I'll place them on parchment paper. Great recipe!!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
Holy Smokes! Like so many of the other reviewers on here, I was a bit skeptical but WOW-EEE these are good! My kids LOVE them! They like them best with Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning lightly sprinkled on top. I had trouble with the first two batches sticking to the plate. I ended up coat the plate with olive oil and then sprinkling the tops with salt (or cajun seasoning), with no additional oil on top. Yummy! But they are quite time consuming! If you're hesitant about trying it...just try it once with one potato (I HIGHLY recommend slicing the potatoes with a mandolin- nice and thin and uniform in size). Have fun! Thanks for the great recipe!

Crispy Eggplant with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This was DELICIOUS! The only change I made was to make my own pasta sauce (with the addition of cayene). This is so good and I think it would be tasty to make the eggplant, then serve the eggplant with toothpicks and pasta/cayene as dipping sauce for an appetizer at a party. Will definitely make again! Thanks for a great, healthy recipe.

Savory Sausage, Cheese and Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
These were quite tasty, although not a WOW from the boys, which I was hoping for so that I could put them in school lunches. Like other viewers, I used butter and real eggs. I also used 1/4 cup w.w. flour and the rest white. Might play around with it to kick it up a notch....

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I agree with most of the reviews...great muffin recipe, but needs an extra orange-y kick, if they are going to be called orange muffins. That being said, I had leftover batter and made mini-muffins out of just the batter (not middle or top layer) and they were quite tasty! The only changes I made were I used applesauce instead of oil and I used a bit more cinnamon in the middle layer. Next time I'll add 1 tsp. orange zest. Yum!

Mayan Couscous

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
So I made this recipe as written. My husband and I enjoyed it, but we both said it is both bland and spicy (how can that be?). It's spicy, but you're waiting for another flavor. My husband said steak. I said feta cheese. Either way, it is a good start recipe, but we think it needs an addition of some sort. And like other reviewers mentioned...the lemon makes the dish.

Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
I made this recipe exactly as written! It is super tasty granola and it does smell great baking! My friends and I all decided that it tastes more like apple pie than pumpkin pie! It is great with and without raisins. I recommend adding the raisins/dried cranberries as you use it, rather than storing the granola with the fruit in it (I think that may be the cause of it turning soft quickly, as some reviewers complained). I will try it next time with pumpkin puree to see if I can make it more like pumpkin pie, but if you can settle for apple pie granola...this recipe is awesome!

Twice-Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
Huge hit at potluck dinner! As others suggested, I added 2 garlic cloves and 1/2 cup sour cream. I also waited until 10 minutes before the dish was done to add the cheese to the top. I added one cup of cheese to the top instead of just 1/2 cup. I used instant potatoes and oscar meyer bacon crumbles (not bits) and it turned out great!

Soft Giant Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
These are awesome! My 3 boys couldn't stop saying YUM! I followed the recipe to a T, but found that I need to add about 1/4 cup more water to the dough and friends recommended a pinch of salt for the dough. I made some with no salt, some with coarse salt and (the best!) some with butter and cinnamon sugar mixture. The last batch tasted JUST like pretzels from the mall! I couldn't believe it! I ended up cooking the cinnamon/sugar pretzel (sticks) at 400 degrees for only 6 minutes. Delicious!!
