Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
I made these a while back and my husband and I both agree they are definely good. I used panko bread crumbs instead of regular but followed the directions for the filling. I also blanched my peppers for just a couple of minutes before filling. Next time I make them I will not remove all of the seeds because they were not quite as spicy as we like them. Since it is just the 2 of us, this recipe made more than we could possibly eat so I used my foodsaver to vacuum seal them and froze the rest. When I cooked them, I baked some of them and fried some. Both are good, but frying did taste better of course.

Awesome Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
After reading all the reviews, I expected this pasta salad to wow me. It was good, my entire family thought so, but not something we just can't wait to have again.

Blue Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2006
This is a good salad and my rating is based on this version. But my favorite way to have this salad is to replace the blue cheese dressing with a vinaigrette...preferably a raspberry viniagrette. You can also replace the blue cheese with gorgonzola. Try it and you will like.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
This is a wonderful recipe and is easily adjustable if, like me, you don't have a bread machine. I used my kitchen aid stand mixer with the dough hook. If you make it this way, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk and let stand for 8-10 minutes. Put this is the mixer bowl and add the other ingredients adding the flour last. I then turned my oven on to warm and put the dough into the oven covered with a damp towel. After about 20 minutes I turned the oven off and left the dough for another 40 minutes. When I took it out it had doubled. For the filling, I melted the butter and brushed it on the rolled out dough and used my hands to spread the brown sugar on the dough and then sprinkled with the cinnamon. These will make your entire house smell wonderful. After baked, they freeze really well too. Just don't add the frosting to the ones you will freeze(frosting is freezable too). This really is an easy recipe, it just takes time.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I was soooo excited to find this recipe. A co-worker brought it to a work party we had and I loved it. I asked a few times for the recipe but she "conveniently" kept forgetting to write it down. I followed the recipe exactly except I rolled it in nuts and mini-choc. chips. If you have trouble rolling it into a ball, lay a piece of saran wrap on the counter and put the mixture in the middle and wrap it up then shape into a ball. This keeps you from having cheeseball all over your hands. This is definitely a must try!!!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
This tasted really good. It is very similar to my mom's ckn & rice cass. except she doesn't use salsa. I made a couple of changes in order for this to work for me. First, I like to cook my chicken with flavor so I seasoned it with salt pepper and garlic powder.I then mixed the soups and rotel (didn't have salsa). I used this mixture instead of water to cook my chicken. I cooked it on medium stirring frequently so the mixture wouldn't scorch on the bottom. I removed the chicken and diced. I mixed all the rice and soup mixture together and then added the chicken. I topped it with cheese (I reduced the amount to save a few calories) and popped it into the oven. By the way, this recipe makes a ton. We will be having this for lunch today and dinner tonight.

Field Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
I love this salad. I first had it at an upscale restraunt that I love. I have since made it myself and it is wonderful. I tend to make it a little different each time. I have used gorgonzola and blue cheese before. I have also changed the fruit by using halved grapes or sliced strawberries. DELISH!!!!

Asparagus Appetizers

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
Fantastic. I actually made these last Wednesday and froze them for a party I had last night (Tuesday). It was a small girls night out gathering with only 4 small appetizer dishes. This was the only dish that had no leftovers. I gave out the recipe enough that I wish I had written it down and copied it. I even used the 1/3 less fat cream cheese and egg beaters. I also reduced the butter and brushed it on instead of rolling it around in the butter. I had enough for 24 slices of bread and could have made more except I ran out of bread. I definitely reccomend you give this one a try.

Blue Cheese, Bacon and Chive Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
We had these a while back but I forgot to rate them. I loved them. The blue cheese and the cream cheese blended beautifully and gave it a subtle but definite zing. My husband on the other hand hates blue cheese. I thought he would like it blended with the other ingredients but he did not. I will definitely be having this again and the hubby can have a plain baked chop.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
We loved this. I didn't have the muenster so instead I used Mozz. I also used whole wheat penne pasta b/c it's what I had and I think that dressed it up a lot. I was worried about the cheese not melting evenly, so when I melted the butter I added the 1/2 & 1/2 to the pot and then the cheeses to make a cheese sauce. Once melted I added the pasta and salt/pepper, then put in a dish to go into the oven with the sprinkled cheese on top. I loved it so much that this will be my contribution to the Easter dinner we will have.

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
This was a good marinade, the steak was tender but the flavor didn't wow me. I may use it again, but I will keep looking for a better one.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2006
This is a great recipe. Since it is just the 2 of us I scaled it down and I also tried to reduce the calories a bit by using 1/2 lb of ground beef and adding to it some sauteed portobellos. And as much as we love cheese I decreased it a bit to save on some calories there. I used sliced mozz. but didn't have provolone so I subbed some 2% Kraft shredded cheddar blend.I also used low fat sour cream. Even with these changes it was still great. You should definitely try this one.

Roasted Red Pepper and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
Excellent recipe!! I needed a lighter version of potato soup b/c mine is VERY high in fat and cal. This was wonderful...we scaled it down to 2 servings and had a cup of soup with a sandwich and side salad. I was out of half & half so I subbed skim milk instead and it worked. I used my immersion blender to cream some of the potatoes, but it still had really good texture.

Best Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
I made this for my husband and I last week and I thought it was....okay. I followed the recipe exactly and was a little disappointed. I was hoping it would be a little more like what my mom used to make. We won't have this version again but we will keep looking for a good stroganoff recipe.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
Delish!! I don't bake a lot, but today I had a mean sweet tooth. I made the cheesecake brownies from this web site that called for choc. frosting. Didn't have frosting so I had to make my own. In case you are wondering, all we use is skim milk and it worked wonderfully. I also only had 2 1/2 cups conf. sugar and it also worked out great. It had the perfect amount of sweetness where others said this recipe was too sweet and the consistency was good too. I iced a 9 X 13 pan of brownies and still had plenty left over. I experimented with the leftover and added a little peanut butter to it...double yum!!

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
Wonderful brownies. Perfect for my sweet tooth and great for any chocoholic. Definitely dresses up an ordinary brownie. The cheesecake layer was perfect as well...just thick enough. Mmmmm......

Overnight Apple Cinnamon French Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I had high hopes for this one. Instead of pouring the egg mixture of the bread, I dipped each piece and then placed it over the apples. I discarded the remaining egg mixture in an attempt to keep my bread from turning soggy. I removed the foil the last 15 minutes of baking and then broiled it for as long as possible without it burning. The apple mixture tasted great. The top of the bread was nice and crunchy, but again the rest of the bread was mushy. This is my 3rd French Toast casserole to try. I'm giving up and sticking to the old fashioned way of making french toast.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2006
Excellent recipe. I made these over the weekend;the only hot sauce I had was Tabasco. We loved the wings and we love spicy foods, but these were just too hot and the sauce was very thin and watery. I made some more last night for just my husband and me using Texas Pete and it was perfect. They had the perfect amount of heat. I also followed the directions except for frying. I baked then in the oven for about 30 mins. at 350. I lightly sprinkled them with flour then sprayed cooking spray on them and they had a great crust coming out of the oven. Definetly recommend!!!

Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
Do not serve this to someone that doesn't like red wine. I loved these sangrias. My husband doesn't like red wine but wanted to try it;not good. they still have a very distinct red wine flavor. Perfect for those of us who love a glass or 2 of red.

SOOOOOOOOO Good!!! Definitely something we will have on a regular basis. I cut the recipe in half and it still made a ton. We had it for dinner last night and have plenty for leftovers. Followed the recipe and served it with sour cream and some jalapenos. YUMMMM!
