Best City Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
I too grew up in the Midwest and remember my mom making this when I was a child with pork and veal cubes. I prepared exactly as indicated and found it to be a trip back to my childhood. The meat was tender and moist but the breading crisp as a result of the last step. I think the next time I make it I will marinate with garlic overnight as previously suggested and then maybe try panko crumbs dolled up with my own blend of seasoning. I also think I will bake over chicken stock instead of plain water. If I really want to feel guilty I might make a gravy using the bits left in the pan after browning along with the baking stock. I closed my eyes and thought I was back in my mother's kitchen. Thanks for the memories!

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Very delicious though i must admit I did make a couple of changes. I used 3/4 c chopped onion and 2 cloves of chopped garlic along with 2 pinches if red pepper flakes. I used whole wheat pasta because it is more healthy. During winter we don't get good fresh tomatoes so I used canned diced. Lastly, all I had in the house was garlic/herb feta and it turned out to be a great addition. The only substitution that might have changed the original recipe was the cheese. This is great but the addition of some sliced grilled chicken would make a full meal.

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
I felt this was very bland. It could have been my fault though. I had no Colby cheese so I used Co-Jack and Co-Cheddar. I used 1-1/2 cloves of garlic and also added some onion powder and added more milk than the recipe called for as I felt it was too thick. I won't blame the recipe but the cook because of my substituted ingredients. I took it to a party and others felt is was good. The recipe yields quite a bit.

Chicken, Sausage and Zucchini Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I'm sorry for the revisions but as i was preparing this I felt not only that it was bland and dry. I added some tomato puree (I didn't have any more diced tomatoes), my other adjustments were the 3 fresh garlic cloves I used, some red pepper flakes, 2T of Italian Seasoning, and 1T dried basil. I served it over whole wheat pasta. I shared it with some friends and haven't heard any overwhelming comments so I assume they feel the same as I did. It was okay, made plenty but don't think I will make it again.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Very good and very rich. I had to bake a little longer than noted. I added a little more topping than called for, never too much of a good thing.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Really, very good. I think fresh berries work best but off season thawed berries should be just fine. Toss frozen berries with some of the flour so they don't clump together. I added some fresh grated lemon zest to the batter and used a little xxx sugar glaze, also with lemon zest, over the top. The glaze was more for a finished appearance than anything. I think the lemon zest really adds something!
