Pineapple Chicken Delight

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
This was quick, easy and had a great flavors. I used both red and green bell peppers and 1/2 an onion sliced longways. I also used chunk pinapple and combined all the veges together then put them on top of the chicken in a dutch oven pot with a lid. Also added garlic powder on the chicken. As another review said you could cut the chicken with a fork. Will definetly make this again.

Curried Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
The flavor was great. I chopped half of the peanuts and broke to rest into halves. The whole halves gave it a nice crunch. The loaves were very most inside but a little hard or dry on top. The next day I made a glaze for the tops of the left over loaves. Staying with the flavors in the recipe, I melted a 1/4c. apricot preserves (I did not have apple) with 1t of peanut butter, 1t ketchup, curry and garlic powder to taste. When reheated with the glaze, the top was nice and soft. Next time I will add the glaze to the top during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Will definelty make this again.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2005
These were great. Quick, easy and low calorie. I also add garlic powder to breadcrumbs. To make them crispy spray tops with cooking spray before putting in the oven. After you turn them over spray the tops again. They will be crispy on both sides.

Serious Herb Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
This is good stuff. I am not sure where I originaly found this recipe, but i have been making it for a long time. Since it is "seriously herby" I use it to stuff veges. Like hollowed out cherry tomatoes and radishes, celery, snow peas, and cucumber rounds. Every time I make them people ask me for the recipe.

Luscious Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
This was good, but it did not come out like I expected from the reviews. This recipe is more like a coated meat with cheese and fried onions than a casserole, so you definelty need side dishes.

Cashew Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
I made this about a month ago before the picture was posted. It was very good. The sauce was wonderful. The only problem I had was that the cashews on the bottom of the chicken got soggy. I had planned to just coat the tops the chicken the next time I made this, but now that I have seen the picture I will cook the chicken with some seasoning and pour the sauce over the top with rice. Thanks for the recipe.

Sweet and Gooey Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2005
These are really, really good. I doubled the recipe and served then at a pool party this summer. Mine did not get gooey or sticky but that didn't matter, the meat fell off the bone. The only thing I added was toasted sesame seeds sprinkled on top for presentation. They looked and tasted great. There wasn't even one left over.

Pioneer Potato Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
I had never heard of potato candy. This recipe came up when I was looking for a potato salad recipe and since it was close to christmas I decided to try it. I am glad I did. It was so good. I have no idea why another reviewer said it wasn't good. Mine came out perfect. I followed the recipe for the dough exactly the way it is printed. It does liquify at first but by the end of adding all the sugar it is a nice dough. One suggestions would be to microwave or bake the potato instead of boiling them. It keeps the potato drier so you don't have to add extra sugar. Also I started with 8 oz of chocolate and figured if I need more I could add it as I went, but that was enough for me. I rolled them into balls and dunked the bottom half in chocolate. It was easier and less messy that way. Then I rolled them in crushed peanuts, mini chips, coconut, and crushed pepperment. Then I set them white side down on wax paper. The toppings you can use is endless. We liked the peanuts the best. Also instead of using vanilla you could add any flavor of extract you like or some rum or brandy. I will be making this again.

The Mighty Chicken Stuff

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
The guys in my household really, really liked this. They each had multipule, mounded servings. I liked it too. I changed the mushroom soup to garlic cream of mushroom soup and added some chopped onion to it. I was afraid there wasn't gong to be enough spices but the flavoring on the chips really came through and they stayed crunchy. I had never bought frozen broccolli before and did not care for it, to many stems. I prefer the crowns, so next time I wil steam some fresh. This was very easy to make and it made alot. Great leftovers. I used a big dutch oven pot instead of the 9x13 so I would have a lid to put on the leftovers. This casserole will be a regular in my house.

Crookneck Squash and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
This is very good. A nice change from plain steamed squash. Make sure to use the whole amount for the squash & tomato or adjust the sauce. The first time I made it I only used 2 of each and the sauce was over powering.

Crystal's Chicken Saltimbocca

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
This was incredible. So far it is the best thing I have made from this site. I made 4 breasts and suffed them with the amounts I like of each ingredient, like extra spinach. I used extra wine in the skillet so that I could make a wine sauce after I took the chicken out. It was great toghether.

Dill and Butter Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This is really good, quick and simple. I cut the butter in half and added some butter flavored cooking spray. I love dill so it was not to much for me. This will be a regular at my house.

Betsy's Poppy Seed Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
This was really good and easy. I used the garlic cream of mushroom soup for the regular and added some chopped onions to the soup mixture. Since it is hard to get the boys in my house to eat vegetables, I add them to casseroles. So I added fresh broccolli to the bottom of my dish and then poured eveything on top. I also used garlic flavored Ritz crackers. My guys ate the whole thing and asked me to make it again.

Skillet Apple Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
This was pretty good. Lots of spices which I like. About the garlic salt, I personally never cook with it. I use either garlic powder or fresh, and then salt the food to my taste. If the recipe calls for a large amount of garlic salt the amount of powder used might need to be adjusted to compensate for the missing salt. Enjoy

Cowboy Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
Wow this recipe brings back memories. I don't really eat this kind of food anymore, but it reminded me of when I was a kid and we went to the rodeo cook offs when the trail riders came in. They would make foods like this for everyone to try. I had mixed reviews from my guys that I cook for. I think its because we don't eat foods like this. One loved it and the other not too much but loved the biscuits from the top. I took one reviewers suggestion and made the meat part on the stove and transferred it to a 9X13 dish, put grands biscuits on top, using cooking directions on buscuit can. It came out great. Thanks for the memories.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
This was really good. To keep the meat from getting to wet drain the tomatoes first. I used hot bar-b-que sauce because we like things very spicy. I made the meat into six 4x2 loaves instead of one big loaf, they cook in about 25-30 minutes and each person gets their own. Also I made a well in the top of each one and filled with a mixture of sour cream and picante sauce and then topped with cheese during the last 5 minutes of cooking. The people in my house gave it a thumbs up.

Fried Cabbage Texas Style

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
I'm from Texas & my grandmother used to make foods like this when I was growing up. I made this with pork chops and cornbread. I don't really eat foods like this anymore, so the bacon grease was a little overwhelming for me, but the guys in my house absolutely loved it. They both had seconds. I usally have to beg to get them to eat even one serving of veges. The only thing I changed was adding more japs, we like things very hot& spicy. I will definetly be making this for them again & again.
