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!!!

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
I put my frozen chicken in the crock pot and covered it with plenty of enchilada sauce(out of tomato sauce) and then the salsa and other seasonings. I use my own taco seasonings I make (taco seasoning I) which works wonderfully because you control the amount of salt. Other than the enchilada sauce, I followed the recipe. Cooked the frozen chicken on hi for 4 hours, then it turned to warm until I got home. I shredded the chicken, wrapped it in tortillas, sprinkled with cheese and then poured the left over sauce from the crock pot over the enchiladas...nothing was wasted. Good...Quick...Easy!

Tortilla Rollups II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
After reading many of the reviews, I was suprisingly disappointed in this recipe. The rollups didn't taste bad, they just weren't jawdropping awesome like I expected. They really were kind of bland tasting like cream cheese mixed with salsa. I even added in a litte taco seasoning for extra flavor. After mixing it up, I let it sit in the fridge for a few hours to blend the flavors. I heated my tortillas for about 30 seconds in the microwave...if you do this it helps you to get a tighter rollup, which prevents the hole in the middle once they are cut. I regrigerated them overnight and then sliced. As I said, they were good, but they didn't quite meet my expectations. The only way I would make again is if I need a last minute appetizer as I usually have all the ingredients on hand. Otherwise, I'll go with a different recipe.

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! This was such a delicious and easy recipe. I only used half the feta b/c my husband doesn't really care for it, but without knowing what was in it, he agreed it was was good so next time I will use the whole amount of feta. I also used extra spinach and next time will use a little more. I literally threw this together in no time and then added some medium shrimp during the last few minutes. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS MEAL!!!

Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
nice change for a salad. after reading the reviews about it being too oily, here are my suggestions. first, mix the vinegar, sugar and oregano in a bowl. i measured a 1/4 cup of olive oil and only drizzled it into the vinegar while whisking. when the consistency looks good to you, taste test it and then add either more oil or a splash or 2 more vinegar. I did not use the full 1/4 cup of oil, but that is my personal preference. then add salt & pepper if you like. also, many reviews talked about there being too much dressing and the salad is just sitting in it. once the tomatoes sit in the refrigerator, they release juices...this causes there to be more liquid in the bottom of the bowl, you will have some liquid even if you use a very small amount of dressing. this recipe really is a 5 star for taste, however, due to the instructions i give it a 4.

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.

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.

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.

Minnesota Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2006
These are the best pork chops we've had in a while. I didn't use the chicken bouillon b/c I used the seasonings that came with the rice and mixed it with the water. I then poured a can of cream of mushroom soup over the rice and cooked it for 30 minutes before adding the chops since they were not very thick. I covered the chops with another can of soup and cooked them for an hour. They were soooooo tender and moist. Loved, loved, loved them!!!!

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
Very rich and decadent. If you're going to make this, you have to use a good quality chocolate or the true taste and texture will be off. I used this as a filling for a torte. In order to do this, after melting the chocolate with the cream, I left it out to come to room temperature. Then I refrigerated it for 30-45 minutes. I used my hand mixer and whipped the ganache into a rich and creamy filling. This changes the color of the ganache from a dark chocolate to a light chocolate.

Garlic and Tomato Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
Kudos for this one. Since you can't find any good tomatoes this time of year, I used a can of Italian diced tomatoes (drained)I also used lite sour cream. This is a great week night recipe: quick, simple ingredients, healthy and tastes great!!

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.

Deep-Fried Turkey Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
We loved this recipe. this was our first time to make the turkey for thanksgiving and we have tough critics in my family. the only thing we did different was we brined the turkey for about 14 hours before marinating it with the rub for about 12 hours. My uncle (the self proclaimed king of the turkey) had me write the recipe down before the meal was over.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This was sooo good that I wanted to have some for breakfast this morning(but I did maintain self control). I added a half pound italian sausage to the ground beef and an extra can of italian style diced tomatoes with a splash of red wine. I also made 3 layers using 3 noodles per layer. And we love cheese so there was lots of it. I refrigerated it for 2 days before cooking. OH SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! Tip: instead of cooking the noodles, soak them in hot faucet water for a while and then layer. They absorb the water and then cook in the oven. Also, put a little sauce on the bottom of the pan, it helps with moisture.

Rocky Road Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
These tasted great and get 4.5 stars for that. however, they didn't look pretty. after i dipped my apples in the caramel and got the excess caramel off i rolled it in the nuts but once i sat them down. the caramel and nuts slid to the bottom of the apple. so i ended up with a pile of caramel nut goo around the bottom. I was planning on giving these to co-workers for halloween, but not now.

Penne with Asparagus and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2006
I had to make some changes to due to the ingredients that I had on hand. I only had 2 portobella mushroom caps, so I sliced and cut them into bite size pieces. And I didn't have any canned tomatos so I chopped 2 small ones and put it in the food processor. Had I had the correct ingredients, this would have been little time consuming to make. I also used only 1/4 cup olive oil and half & half in an attempt to reduce calories. Because I didn't use heavy cream it didn't get as thick as it was supposed to, but the fresh veggies really stood out. It could still use a little tweaking to make it an awesome dish, but it definitely has the potential.
