Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
I changed one thing - I used an 8 oz. bottle of Catalina dressing instead of 16 oz. It's what I had on hand, and I believe I've seen this recipe before written that way. It's great with 8 oz., and it made plenty of sauce for 3 breasts and 4 or 5 thighs. I cooked a bit longer than the recipe stated since the thighs were bone-in. Served over mashed potatoes, and it was great. Love the way the house smells while it's cooking, too!

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
I usually can't deal with chicken breast - just too dry. This was NOT dry! Absolutely wonderful, and even my very picky 9 year old went back for 2nds. I did add some garlic powder, salt & pepper to the flour, and fried in half oil, half butter. I used the tonkatsu sauce from one of the other reviews, but changed it a little: 1/4 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce, 1/3 cup soy sauce, garlic powder, and honey to taste. (I was all out of hoisin, so figured honey or brown sugar for a bit of sweetness - it needed it to counteract that much worcestershire!) I needed 2 eggs, and I think you'll use more panko than the recipe calls for - I sure did!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
Delicious! We love fish, but tilapia has usually left me cold - it's a little too mild-flavored. This topping adds a lot of flavor. I took the suggestions of adding onion and garlic powder, also panko (less than 1/2 cup), and sprinkled on a little bit of Old Bay while broiling the fish before putting on the topping. We'll be having this again!

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
Cut down the seasoned salt!! 2 tsp. is way too much, especially when using bacon as well. I omitted the corn syrup as several reviewers said, left out the mushrooms (kids won't touch 'em), and sauteed the pounded chicken breasts in some of the bacon drippings. My husband thought this was amazing, and I will make it again - but with much less salt.

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Yes, it's good - but that much better than any other beef stew? Not sure about that. I still think it could use a bit more seasoning. I took tips from some of the other reviewers and skipped a few of the 'extra' steps like boiling the water, and I omitted the mushrooms because they're an instant turn-off for my kids (threw in celery instead). Other than that, I followed the recipe pretty closely - and it definitely does take longer to get into the the crockpot than similar recipes. All that being said, I'll still give it 4 stars!

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
My family really liked this, though I didn't expect to - recipes with canned soup usually wind up all tasting very similar to me. I tweaked this a little bit and it came out pretty good. I used raw chicken breasts, cubed, as I didn't have any cooked chicken on hand. I sauteed chopped onion and garlic in butter and added to step 1. I also mixed in some of the cheddar cheese with the chicken/soup mixture (and definitely used more than 1 cup total in the recipe - my older daughter loves cheese) and garlic powder. I don't use canned veggies, so I partially micro-cooked frozen green beans before adding them. I used StoveTop stuffing rather than an unseasoned stuffing mix - again, what I had on hand. I baked at 375 for about 50 - 55 minutes and then uncovered to brown the top. I will make this again, as even my picky 9 year old ate it.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I've made sausage & peppers before, but never added wine or garlic - much better! I used cubanelle (frying) peppers, and only had sweet onions, and it was still delicious. We had this as sandwiches.

Syracuse Salt Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Yum - and really not salty at all. I didn't get as much of a salt crust as other people said (maybe too much water?), but they were good anyway. My 15 year old (who doesn't like potatoes at all) really liked these. Used up all the salt in the house, though!

Drumsticks with Peach and Honey

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Taste was not what I was expecting - somewhat bland. The chicken did come out moist. I don't think I'll be making this again any time soon.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Delicious, but I do agree with the reviews that said 475 is way too high. I used small red potatoes, quartered, and set the oven to 425. I thought they would take about 35 minutes, but they were thoroughly cooked before 25 minutes were up. I shut the oven off and just let them sit in there until the rest of dinner was ready. I used granulated garlic, dill, oregano, basil, parsley, salt & pepper, and thought the taste was wonderful. I may try 400 degrees next time.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I did change this quite a bit as per other reviewers' suggestions, but it's a good base as written. I added sour cream, onion powder, granulated garlic, lemon pepper, used leftover rotisserie chicken (which already has good seasoned flavor), more chicken, more soup (1/2 can of roasted garlic cream of mushroom in addition to the cream of broccoli), more milk to thin it a bit, and the biggest change of all - cooked egg noodles, so it became a one-dish meal. For the topping I used the butter/seasoned bread crumb topping and added grated parmesan, as I do for mac-n-cheese. Makes a much tastier topping. My 8 year old ate this with much less prodding than I usually have to do!

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Delicious!! My 15 year old called this "brilliant". (My 8 year old had to be bribed to eat 3 small pieces.....) I did the bamboo skewer thing, and added a quick sprinkle of granulated garlic along with the kosher salt, pepper and olive oil. Fresh garlic would've been even better. Gave it right around 5 minutes, and think possibly another 30 to 45 seconds would've been perfect. Still.... YUM!!

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
YUM! So rich, though - can't have this too often! I added corn, and cut way back on the Old Bay, using less than 2 tbsp. My youngest still thought it was "too spicy", while my oldest thought I could've upped the Old Bay... can't please everyone! I also added more sherry. Wonderful, and VERY filling, with just crusty bread to dip.

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Very good, quick and easy - and flavorful. I used granulated garlic instead of minced, and upped the spice rub considerably. A pinch would not have done it - I probably had over 1 tbsp. of seasonings altogether. Otherwise, made just as written.

Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Very good and fairly easy! I used leftovers from a store-bough rotisserie chicken, sauteed the onion with some sliced sweet red peppers in a little olive oil, and used both cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese. I served them with salsa and sour cream and 3 out of the 4 of us loved them.... My 8 year old loves nothing, so no big surprise!

Simple Ranchy Breaded Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Pretty good! I used a few changes as per some other reviews - dredged in flour, then dipped in egg, and then into the breadcrumb/ranch dressing mix mixture, and then fried in olive oil just because it was quickest. Next time I'll try baking it in the oven. We didn't find it overly salty, and my husband is usually very salt sensitive.

Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
"Holy cow, that's good" - my husband. I made it almost exactly as written, with the addition of some sliced onion while browning the meat, and sour cream at the end. I did brown on the stovetop, and then finish it in the oven, just for convenience. Will definitely make this again!

Sparkling Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
Delicious! The amount of fruit overwhelmed my punch bowl a bit, but we still guzzled down all the punch - and then ate the fruit after the company was gone. Will definitely make again. My FIL said it would be wonderful with vodka or gin added (I don't see the need!).

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
The taste was OK, but the texture/presentation of this was just too unappealing. I used corn tortillas, but otherwise didn't change anything. My family ate it, but commented that they liked the Cottage Cheese Enchiladas (from this site) I made a couple of weeks ago MUCH better.
