Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
This was sooooo delicous, I loved it. The chicken turns out so tender and juicy. This is simple too and full of flavors. I took the suggestion of another reviewer. I added red and yellow peppers, mushrooms, onion, extra garlic, and chardonnay wine. I sauted the veggies seperate and added the wine along with the lemon juice. It was so great. Had it for left overs today, and it was just as good.

Banana Nut Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
I loved how moist this cake turned out, it was so delicious and full of flavor. The frosting was just ok, next time I think I will make it with a cream cheese frosting. It is definitly a keeper though.

Grilled Cilantro Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
This is so simple and delicous. I did a few things different though. I cooked the salmon in the oven on a pan lined with foil and at the end of cooking I taste-tested it and all it needed was a good pinch of kosher salt spinkled over the top. I served it with rice pilaf and cooked spinach. It was very good.

If you really like salmon this is an awesome recipe, me and my family loved this. I made it with rice pilaf and sauted yellow and green squash and onions.

Coq Au Vin, My Way

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
This recipe was so delicious. I have never made chicken thighs this good. It takes some time to cook but it is well worth the wait. I served it along side mashed potatoes and asparagus as suggested. I think it would also go great with some pasta. Thanks for the recipe!

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
This was a good cake but i should have taken the other reviewers advice to not use so much oil and substitute applesauce. It was WAY too oily for my taste, but the flavor of the cake was great.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
I love this recipe and have already made it a few times. I found that it's better to cut up the chicken in smaller bit size pieces after cooking it and adding all of it to the sauce, it absorbs the flavors better. I also sauted some mushrooms and added it to the sauce as well.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
This was the best banana cake I have ever had. It is so moist, light and fluffy. I did add 1/2 TBS of cinnamon and instead of using sour milk I used 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/4 cup milk. This was so good plain I didn't even bother frosting it. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
This was so delicous!! At the end of simmering the sauce and chicken I did remove the lid and brought it to a boil so that some of the sauce could cook down and thicken up.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
This was just okay. I liked all the veggies in it but for some reason It didn't satisfy my tastebuds like I thought it would. I actually thought that it tasted better the next day after it had sat in the fridge overnight. I liked it as a chilled pasta dish better.

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
This was delish! I served it with noodles and asparagus. The next day for leftovers I had it with a salad. It is so easy to make.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
This was so good. I used boneless and skinless chicken thighs and cooked for an hour. I didn't have to do any basting because the sauce covered the chicken, but half way through i did flip them once. This goes perfect with white rice and steamed veggies.

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!

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!

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!

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
