Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Excellent! This was so easy to prepare - I put the potatoes and onions in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish, and put the bacon wrapped chicken on a baking rack on top of the dish. All of the wonderful juices dripped down on to the potatoes and onion, giving them a amazing flavor (I took the potatoes and onions out of the pan after cooking, and drained them on paper towels). This dish gets more than 5 stars in my opinion! It is an easy and elegant dinner to serve to company!

Quick Hoppin' John Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Wonderful, quick soup! I used sliced smoked sausage instead of the sage pork sausage (don't like sage), and only one can of diced tomatoes. I also added 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, to make more of a stew like texture. Excellent flavor, quick and easy to assemble - this recipe will be one of my regulars! Thanks for sharing!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
This is a great recipe and very easy to make. I used half ground beef and half Italian sausage, and it gave it a wonderful flavor. I used approximately 2 jars of sauce, as I didn't want it to be dry. This makes ALOT, so next time I make it, I will half the recipe. This is a great dish to take to potlucks and family reunions - Thank you for sharing Louise!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This was a very good and easy recipe. I used chicken breasts that were pre-seasoned (in the package) and added the marinade to the already seasoned chicken breasts. Wonderful flavor, but would use boneless, skinless chicken thighs the next time, as the chicken breasts tend to dry out, even when not overcooked. All in all, excellent recipe, will definately make again.

Baked Cream Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
This was ok, but nothing to rave about - too much butter, and too many ingredients for it to have turned out just "ok". I would make one of the corn casserole recipes from allrecipes instead of this one.

Skinny Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
These are just totally AWESOME! I substituted one, seeded and finely chopped jalapeno pepper for the basil (I sprinkled them between the first and second layer of potaoes) and used Pepper Jack Velveeta Cheese instead of the Swiss Cheese. I also layered the cheese between the first and second layer, and added some cheese on the top also. Covered and baked for 45 minutes and out came perfection! I did not uncover the last 15 minutes to brown, but will do so the next time I make this dish - I always thought the "boxed" scalloped potatoes were good - now that I have tried this recipe, I'll never go back!

Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Excellent Dish! I love the ease of one dish meals. I halved the recipe, as I was cooking for a small number of people. The changes I made was to use regular smoked sausage (andouille was not available) and I added 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup (undiluted). I think the tomato paste and one can of the tomatoes need to be eliminated. I will do this the next time I make this recipe - (too much acid for us from the the amount of tomatoes). All in all, a great recipe! Will definately make again.

Cola Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
I was a bit apprehensive about making these pork chops, but wanted to make something different that was quick and easy. I waited until my husband went out to run an errand before I started preparing this dish, thinking if he saw what the ingredients were, he would never eat them! Boy, were we both surprised!! These were the most tender, moist and flavorful pork chops we had ever eaten! I now make these at least twice a week. My loal grocery store had inexpensive pork steaks that had been pre-seasoned with alot of paprika and black pepper, so I bought them instead of the chops. I mixed the onion soup mix with a cheap, off brand cola (not diet),and poured some of that mixture in the bottom of the 9 x 13 pan sprinkled the chops with garlic powder and put them in the pan, and then added the remaining soup/cola mixture. I then topped with extra onion, sliced very thin. I covered with foil and baked in a 300 degreee oven for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Perfection!! Excellent, simple recipe. I think next time, I will add fresh, thinly sliced mushrooms - Yum!!!!

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Very good and easy to assemble - will definately make again! I used rigatoni pasta instead of noodles - I think a dish with an Italian theme needs pasta instead of noodles.

Easiest Teriyaki Marinade Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
EXCELLENT RECIPE!! I marinaded boneless, skinless chicken thighs overnight, and then grilled them on our outdoor gas grill - the result was wonderfully moist and flavorful chicken! I think the cinnamon is the "Star" of this recipe. I followed the recipe as it was written, but did add a tablespoon of worchestershire as another reader had suggested. The result was perfection, and no more buying expensive bottled marinades! This recipe was made with things I always have on hand - thanks to Joanne for sharing!

Mom's Goulash in the Microwave

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
Excellent dish! I am not fond of microwave cooking, so I assembled the dish and popped it in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. I left out the caraway seed and oregano, and used one can Rotel tomatoes (mexican flavor tomatoes with chilis) and one can fat free cream of mushroom soup instead of the tomato sauce. I felt that much tomato would be a bit overwhelming. Instead of the onions and celery, I substituted a bag of frozen "fajita blend" veggies (red & green bell pepper and onion), because that is what I had on hand. I quickly sauteed' these and poured off the residual fluid. Worked out beautifully and gave it a really great flavor. I also used whole wheat elbow macaroni instead of what was called for. Before I put it in the oven, I sprinkled the top with low fat shredded cheese and covered with foil. Super simple and super good!

Carne Guisada III

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This was a great recipe - my husband considers himself an expert on Carne Guisada. He did suggest the next time I make it to add some jalapeno, onion and a small amount of bell pepper. Overall, this is a great dish, but I have to agree with him, it does need just a little "boost" in the flavor department. This was very simple to throw together the night before ( I put everything in a ziplock bag so that the flavors could blend overnight).

Mediterranean Medley Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
This was really good and easy to prepare - I did double the marinade because I felt the amount called for in the recipe was not enough to properly coat the vegetables. I did not have the Kalmatta olives, so I used green olives marinated in olive oil and garlic that I found in my store's deli section. This added a nice flavor. Will definately make this again.

Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
This was really good, and so simple to throw together. I used low-fat ranch dressing and one package of cheddar/jack cheese instead of two. I also used one whole jar of bacon bits. Will make this one again.

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
Really simple to make, but I found it to be too salty and really nothing special to write home about. I might make it again with a different stuffing mix - I used Mrs. Culbertson's brand, and it made the whole casserole very "gummy". This recipe might work well with Stove Top Stuffing mix. All in all, nothing spectacular about this recipe - I was wondering about all of the "Rave Reviews" it got.

Easy Italian Sausage Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
This recipe was great! I am watching my fat intake and made some ingredient substitutions: italian turkey sausage instead of the regular italian sausage, low fat cottage cheese instead of the ricotta, and fat free mozzarella instead of the regular mozzarella cheese (I used only 2 cups of the mozzarella, I thought 4 cups was a bit much). They only problem I had was not enough pasta sauce - I think a jar and a half would probably do the trick. Overall, a great recipe that I plan on making again and again!

Spinach Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
This recipe is wonderful! I substituted egg beaters for the "real" eggs, used reduced fat crescent rolls and 2% cheese. I also used the Knorr brand vegetable soup mix instead of the one called for in the recipe. This was a very easy recipe and it turned out so pretty - will definately make again and again! Bake time was about 40 - 45 minutes.

Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage and Sweet Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
Excellent recipe and very easy to put together - I used red and yellow bell peppers instead of the green and added one half chopped red onion. Wonderful flavor! Will definately put this one in my "favorites" recipe file!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
The first time I made "Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic", I was the hit of Thanksgiving dinner! Now when I am asked to take a dish to a potluck, family gathering, this is the one that is always requested. I brought this to a church dinner yesterday and took home an empty casserole! Fantastic recipe and so beautifully easy!!!
