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!!!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
Wonderful recipe. I seasoned my chicken with the Taco Season I recipe from this site (way better than the store bought). I poured 1/2 a cup of salsa in the bottom of my crock pot for moisture and then placed 3 frozen seasoned chicken breasts in it. I cooked this on low for 5 hours. I halved the recipe to begin with and I had to make changes but only b/c of what I had on hand. I used lite sour cream and less than called for since it was all I had. I also used low fat soup and I had very little onion,so I used what I had and then added a tsp onion powder. To this I added black beans(no chili beans in the cabinet) and a can of drained mexi-corn. Because so many reviews said the tortillas turned out soggy, I used a couple extra to make sure the strips were layered thick enough. I also mixed 1 cup of cheese and 1 cup 2% cheese together for a few less calories. Baked as directed in an 8x8 pan and it turned out a fantastic meal. Served simply with a side salad. Delisious, filling and no soggy tortillas.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
OOEY-GOOEY YUMMY!!! I decided at the last minute to have a sweet treat for after dinner. I had 45 minutes before our guests arrived and in that time these were baked and cooling. I did cheat and had to use a jarred caramel topping since I had no time to go get, unwrap and melt caramels. But it worked out just fine. I doubled the recipe and it fit perfectly in the 9x11 pan making 24 squares(really do not see how the recipe as stated would fit). I do think I may have used too much caramel because mine looked nothing like the pictures, the caramel and chocolate were oozing out when cut (still delish though). Also, when doubled, it calls for 1.5 cups of butter...WOW! I used it, and they were great, but ohhhh...the guilt!! I think next time I will cut back to 1.25 cups of butter and use the recommended caramel sauce and see how that works. A definite must try!!!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
WOW!!! I have tried several recipes lately with phenomenal reviews and ended up slightly disappointed with good meals but not exceptional. Well, this one lives up to all the wonderful reviews. My husband stated that if this were on a menu at a restaurant, he would order it. This is the highest compliment b/c when we go out to dinner he is a steak and potato guy.

Chocolate Covered Brownie Bites

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
I love this recipe. I first made it last year around the holidays and then lost the recipe so I tried making by memory and got pretty close. I also only use the soft inside of the brownies and leave the crusty edge in the pan. I scoop mine with my cookie scoop and they turn out round on top with a flat bottom to sit on. I use a double boiler method for melting the chocolate mixture. I used toothpicks to hold the balls while dipping into the chocolate. They keep for a few days in the refrigerator, but are best served at room temperature.

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
YUM-YUM!!! I used a silicone muffin pan and had no sticking at all...push up from the bottom and they popped right out. I made these because my husband has decided to try going low carb for a while to see how it works. I made a half recipe. I didn't use cottage cheese because we didn't have any, instead I added some sour cream. I reduced the amount of flour (carbs) to just about a tablespoon. Next time I will also reduce some of the butter. My husband says they taste great and the convenience is a definite plus. Just pop a few in the microwave and then he is out the door. Great Recipe!!!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
I LOVE THESE MUFFINS!! They came out very moist and not mushy as others stated, although due to differences in ovens, I did have to cook mine for an extra 8 minutes. I used my silicone muffin pan, and I had no problem with my muffins coming right out. I followed the recipe using 3 large bananas and tossed in about a 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. I also had about a half a palmful of choc. chips, so I threw those in there as well. I did find that the crumb topping was more of a really good sweet crust instead of crumb. I like the idea of adding oats to the topping, I will try that next time. I did double the topping so I could completely cover my muffins with the mixture. My batter also made 12 muffins filled to the rim so that when I baked them they overflowed into large muffins which I love. I made these yesterday and they were fabulous. I also ate 2 this morning for breakfast and they were still good. The consistency on the topping changed a little overnight, but still great muffins (I'm trying to remind myself I'm full and I should not have a 3rd muffin--they're that good!)

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!!!!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2006
okay...while browsing through this website i kept seeing this recipe. It never really interested me because I have never had a scone before so I passed it over. But as I would search different lists and the recently reviewed lists I kept seeing this recipe. So, I decided to give it a try and whoa...am I glad I did. Again, I have never had a scone before so I have nothing to compare it too but this was fantastic. I followed the recipe exactly with 2 exceptions...light sour cream and instead of raising, white choc. and cranberries. I already know what my home-made Christmas gifts will be this year. If you're looking at this recipe wondering...should I? The answer is yes. It's easy and delicious. VERY HAPPY EATS!!!

Cheesy Breads

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
simple yet extremely delicious. I am soon hosting a baby shower and wanted to try out a few possible recipes. I cut this recipe down by 2/3 to make samples and it still made quite a lot. Since the mom to be doesn't like olives, I left them out and instead added Hormel real bacon pieces and topped some of them with half a grape tomato. These have definitely made it into the shower menu.

Overnight Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
This really is one of the easiest recipes you can make...and OH MY!!! IS IT GOOD!!! I was going to half the recipe because there is only my husband and myself, but the yeast rolls I bought were already risen, so I managed to sqeeze 5 into my round baking pan (good thing because I would have eaten them until they were gone). I sprinkled just about a teaspoon of the pudding on each roll and then poured the sugar/butter mixture over them by the tablespoon. I made sure that all of the pudding was covered with the butter mix so I wouldn't have any dry/clumpy pudding on them. They have a slight taste resemblence to donuts...just a little. You definitely should try these. Even small kids could do it if the sugar/butter were done in the microwave. Just remember to invert them onto a platter when they first come out of the oven to prevent sticking. HAPPY EATS!!!

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!!!

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.
