Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This was awesome! I followed the recipe exact except I did use a pint of fat free half and half and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken instead of heavy cream and it turned out perfect. So this was a guilt free dinner for us with wonderful flavors, will be making again!

Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This cake had an excellent flavor, although I would have like it to be a little more moist, it is still a keeper. I did not make the frosting suggested, instead I made cream cheese frosting...it was perfect. It went well with my daughters "clifford the big red dog" birthday.

Quick Chicken Zingarella

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
Everyone ate this all up! I cooked the mushrooms (8oz.), onions, and half of the garlic together. I took note in the reviews that it needed something more flavor wise, so I added kosher salt and thyme to the mushrooms. I cooked the chicken separately and I didn't bother salting it because the sauce has plenty of sodium in it, but i did add italian seasonings and the rest of the garlic. Once the chicken browned I combined everything and used a 1/2 cup of red wine and it was perfect. I didn't have any roasted cherry peppers on hand but will try next time or brown sugar, it was great without it.

Chicken Spaghetti II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
This was so good. I cooked 16oz of spaghetti to 1/2 pound of processed chesse and it was just right. I was very filling and I could not stop eating it!

Chicken-Stuffed Shells with Sherry Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
This was so good. I did some things different though. I boiled my chicken breast in lightly salted water with a bay leaf and a crushed garlic clove. Once it cooled completly I cut up the chicken in a fine dice. I also chopped up the mushrooms into smaller pieces. I added 2 cups of ricotta cheese and 1 tsp. of italian seasonings to the chicken/cheese mixture. Once it was combined well I put it in a pastry bag and used it to fill up the shells, much easier this way. It filled up 20 jumbo shells. I noticed that a lot of the shells broke, so I am glad that I cooked more than 8 oz. I would have like more sauce so maybe the addition of a cup of chicken broth would do the trick. Also, for the blandness, these stuffed shells taste great with a little spaghetti sauce drizzled on top.

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
This was good, I would say 4 1/2. We had it with some chicken for dinner and for left overs we had it for breakfast with a fried egg on top, which I liked better.

Seafood Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
This was pretty good. I followed the suggestions to make a rue with the sauce but I don't think that I will do that next time. I didn't have any crab meat so I just used all shrimp. I also used fat free half and half and lowfat sour cream to cut down on the fat. Even so it still seemed like a very filling meal. I also used fresh cilantro instead of parsley. It was a nice to change from the average enchilada.

Taiwanese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
This was good. I did a few things different. I didn't have any white wine on hand so I just used vinegar. I also didn't have a large enough bag so I put the marinade in a large glass pan and doubled the recipe because I had 8 thin sliced pork chops. I added 1TBS of vegetable oil so the marinade wasn't so thick. The pork chops alone were fairly salty, but not over powering. I made fried rice as a side and chopped up the porkchops and mixed it into the rice, it was great.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
WOW! This was awesome. I loved this dish and so did my family. I did a few things different though. I used italian seasoned ground turkey to cut down on fat and I used canned diced tomatoes and added 1 TBS of italian seasonings to them. It turned out great and was a very filling dish. Thanks!

Salmon, Rice, and Fried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
This was very good. It really does need salt though, luckily I read the reviews before I made it and salted the dish as I cooked. I also made a butter sauce too for the rice, it was really good.

Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
This was very good. I was a little a scared because the batter is very runny but it worked. I wanted to use other cake pans but with the consistancy of the batter I think that the pan the recipe calls for would work the best. I also frosted it with chocolate fudge frosting and it was great. Next time I want to make it with strawberry filling and wipped frosting to maybe mock the peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Thanks for the recipe.

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
I am giving this a 5 for it's flavor, it was rich and very chocolaty. But it was very runny if you follow the recipe exactly. Don't use this if you are decorating a cake, if you do add at least 2 more cups of powdered sugar.

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
This was a great side dish and the only reason I am giving it a 4 is because it was a little too greasey. I will make this again, I think that I may just omit the butter and use reduced fat cream of chicken or cream of mushroom and maybe some fat-free sour cream to make it creamier. I originally made it with cream of mushroom and it was really good and I didn't add any salt at all because there is enough salt in the soup and cheese.

Wedding Cake Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
Great frosting! The almond extract really sets this frosting apart from the others that I have tried. It worked great for piping and making roses. I will always use this recipe from now on, love it!

Hamburger Potato Casserole

This was pretty simple. My husband loved this more than I did! He was getting tired of the same old ground beef recipes that I had. Thanks for the recipe.

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
This was great, my husband loved it. I did a few things different though. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast and 5 slices of bacon instead of 3. Once I took the chicken out of the oven, I cut up the bacon and cooked it in the skillet until it was crispy. I removed the bacon and cooked a tablespoon of flour in the bacon grease and then added the jucies from the chicken and wisked it into the flour. Then I added the cream, which was about a half a cup. I also cut up the chicken into smaller pieces. It was good with spaghetti, we loved the smokey, bacon flavor. I would have liked more sauce so next time I think I will add some chicken broth. Thanks!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I have made this several times already. One thing that I did differently was instead of using onion powder I grated about 1-2 TBS of white onion into the topping mixture. It tasted great!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
I have had this salad before and it is very light and delicious. Instead of dried cranberries, I used sliced, fresh strawberies. Very good!
