Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
This stuff is AMAZING! I have been dying to try this recipe for a while based on reviews and I am so glad I finally made it. At first I thought 1tsp of pepper was too much, so I initially made it with half the pepper. I tasted it and realized you need the full amount of pepper to balance out the celery salt. This is one of the few recipes on this website where I reccomend you change nothing! It is perfect as is. I served this as a dip with homemade salsa and tortilla chips; but, it would also be a good veggie dip and I think it would be awesome on chicken, steak or fish. It would be a great addition to a burrito or taco.

Maple-Brined Pork Loin

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
As others have said this is good enough to make for company. I did not have cracked pepper, so I subbed 3/4 tsp ground black pepper and that worked just fine in a pinch. I also skipped the ginger because I did not have any; but, I will be sure to add it next time. My 11yr old ate all of the food on his plate and made sure to verify that this dish woud be worked into our regular rotation of dinners! That makes it a keeper for me.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
This was really good. We don't care for zuchini, so we substituted a can of kidney and a can of pinto beans. I used my own taco seasoning (from this website) and use anch chili powder (next time I will use regular chili powder). We squeezed 1/4 of a juicy lime in each bowl and topped with fresh cilantro (we did not add the corriander), sour cream and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. The lime and other toppings really made the dish. It may have been a bit light on flavor otherwise. Also it was good the first day; but, it was way better the second day. If you are making this to take somewhere or for company make it the day before. It is worth the wait.

White Bean, Turkey, and Sausage Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This was surprisingly good! I was nervous about the large amount of cumin (and we love cumin) and garlic powder; but, the spices were not overpowering. I skipped the chopped jalapeños; but, I did add the whole jalapeños. I was curious about how that method would work. It adds a subtle layer of heat without having to chop the peppers. I also used hot Italian chicken sausage and lean ground turkey for the meat. I suggest browning the onions first in 1/2 tbs olive oil then use the other 1/2 tbs olive oil to cook the turkey separately. After browning the onions and turkey I put everything in the crock pot on high for 4 hours. Next time I might add a chopped tomato to the pot and then a bit of fresh parsley or cilantro in the final minutes if cooking. Top with some sour cream and cheddar cheese and serve with a hearty slice of rustic bread and a green salad for a complete meal.

Garlic and Ranch Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
Very good! Like other reviewers I added 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs. This is more like a meatloaf; but, if you are cooking burgers to be reheated the next day, this is not a bad thing. My only complains is that it is a bit salty. I love salt, so if I think it is salty, ther people might find it to be overkill. Next time I might try reducing the Worcester and ranch by a smidge to see if that helps. This might be nice with a spicy kick as others have mentioned. If you like spicy food, maybe try adding a 1/8 tsp of cayaned, red pepper flakes or jalapeños.

Spinach and Black Bean Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
I gave this four stars; but, that is only based on changes to the recipe and its really more like 3 1/2 stars. It's still missing something. I used 2 chopped tomatoes and 2 cups fresh broccoli. I sautéed the onion and garlic in 1tbs of olive oil. I added 1/2 tsp salt, pepper, cumin and oregano. I reduced the cayane to 1/4 tsp. The end result was, the sauce was flavorful, but missing something. It was also a bit too watery. Next time I will follow other reviewers tips and thicken with some corn starch. I might try adding some lime juice, chili powder and roasted red peppers. Maybe some lime zest? This recipe is almost a great one with the revisions, so I will definitely make it again and tweak it.

Slow Cooker Mexican-Style Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
I followed this recipe exactly as written, no substitutions. Unfortunately we did not care for it. The meat was use too sweet and not in a good way. We won't be making this one again.

Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
We loved this. I sautéed the onion, pepper and garlic in 1tbs canola oil. We used lean pork steaks and cubed them and topped the chili with fresh lime juice, fresh cilantro, shredded cheese and low fat sour cream. It was fantastic! We used a mild salsa, so the crushed red pepper did not make this dish too spicy. It added just enough oomph to the dish and my 10 yr old still loved it. For people who felt it was too spicy, I suspect they used a medium or hot salsa. This is going to be a regular dish in our dinner rotation. I really think the toppings you add are what make this dish pop.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
I made this as a Christmas appetizer and everybody loved it! I rolled it in toffe bits and served it with chocolate Grahm crackers. You might want to get two boxes of the crackers if there will be lots of kids at the party as they seem to like just eating the crackers alone. This will be a new staple for us. You can make it ahead and it's a no bake dish which is great. I also refrigerated mine for four hours before rolling and had no problems.

Jimmy Carter Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
This really is a crowd pleaser. It's not fancy or high brow; but, it is the kind of dish you bring to a gathering hoping some will be left to take home and you go home with a clean pan instead. Next time I will make two. One for home and one for the party goers.

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
We did not like this at all. I agree with others who did not like this dish that felt it was not sweet enough. I kinda thought it tasted like baby food.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
It is pretty rare that I run across a recipe my 10yr old loves so much that he virtually inhales his food rather than chew and swallow it in a civilized manner; but, this is one of those recipes. I did not have any Worcestershire on hand so I substituted A1 and I used a light Italian Parmesan dressing since that was what was in the fridge. We used up a bottle of KC Masterpiece Hickory Brown Sugar for the recipe and topped our sandwiches with Sweet Baby Rays and cheddar cheese. This is definitely going in the regular dinner rotation! Also I did use frozen chicken and the sauce did come out a bit watery. I just used a slotted spoon to pick up the shredded chicken and that worked just fine.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
I hate the microwave popcorn that comes from the grocery store and usually make my popcorn stove top;but, that takes a bit more time, so I gave this a try. It is great! Be sure to mix the ingredients in a bowl first. I was lazy and tried mixing it right in the bag and while it did work, it clumped in the bottom. The second batch was better.

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
My family was not crazy about the flavor of Worcestershire and Honey Mustard. DS thought it might taste better with ranch instead. We also used sauteed onions rather than mushrooms since that is what we prefer. This is not a fancy dish; but, it is very much like something you would order at a chain restaurant. I would say this would be a good recipe to keep for those days when you want to eat out but, cannot afford to. We will make this again; but, next time we will marinade the chicken in honey mustard instead. Also, I think this dish would be good marinaded and topped with BBQ for a variation. Made as is I would give this 3 stars; but, a different marinade would make this a 4 star recipe for us. EDIT: I served this dish using Perdu Simply Smart breaded chicken and it was a major hit! This goes great over a quality chicken strip!

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
I'm sure there are more fancy version of quiche and have tasted a few myself; but, the ease of this recipe makes it a real keeper! I was out of baking mix, so I made my own using an internet version. That recipe called for 1/2 stick of butter as did the quiche recipe. I found the only thing wrong to be too much butter in the dish, so if you are out of baking mix and whip some up I would highly recommend omitting the baking mix butter and only use the 1/4 cup of butter the quiche calls for. I promise it will be more than enough. For the add in's you could definitely substitute a different type of cheese, vegetable and meat. I also used skim milk because that is what we drink and used 2% cheese and bacon instead of ham since that is what was on hand and it was still great! You could make a dozen different types of quiche using this recipe.

Deviled Eggs II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This is a solid traditional picnic recipe. I thought the vinegar might be weird; but, it really works in this recipe. I used 8 eggs and increased the mayo to 3tbs and used a heaping 1/4 of mustard.

Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I made this in the rice cooker and skipped the egg because I didn't know if it would work using this cooking method. I did not have fresh parsley, so I used 1/2 tsp of dried and added 1/2 tsp salt. This made a very nice Chinese rice. It wasn't quite like fried rice; but, maybe that's because I made it in the rice cooker with uncooked rice. Still it is a solid recipe and we will be making this again. I also added 1/2 a bag of frozen Chinese veggies (beans, water chestnuts, those small corn on the cobs and broccoli)

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
I gave this five stars even though I agree with others that it has too much salt. The reason I still gave this five stars is that even over salted it is clear this recipe is a keeper. I should also mention I am a salt lover, so if I say something is too salty it's probably way too salty for most people. Next time I will try 3 tsp of salt and see how that goes. Also I did not have a fresh jalapeno, so I put about 6 jarred "rings" in. I removed the onion before mashing; but, I left the jalapenos in. If your family likes salty food this might be ok. I'm sure my son will not eat this batch though, so next time I may only put 3 rings in and remove them before mashing. I did not need to add any reserve liquid for mashing.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
This was so good! Out microwave died this week and with the holidays coming it will not be replaced any time soon. I dug out my Pro Popper (stove top popper) and made this. I used about 2 tbs canola oil and added 1/3 tsp salt since I love the sweet and salty flavor combination. It turned out great! This is a real keeper for us!
