Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2014
Go very easy with the Cajun seasoning ( it's hot AND salty) and forgo the salt and pepper, unless you love volcano spicy very salty food.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
Made per directions, other than using fresh minced onion--which I saute browned in melted butter, along w/ a whisper of minced garlic. Good measure of eggs to bread crumbs--and patience makes the "jellyroll effect" worth it; just make sure you seal meat good so it doesn't leak ( and so what if it does, eh?). Foil lined baking pan coated down w/ non-stick cooking spray is worth doing; don't worry about putting bread under the loaf. About 40 min in oven--took out and covered loaf w/ favorite BBQ sauce, letting it ride another 10 min made sure there were NO left-overs.

Pineapple Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
Easy and fast to put together with easy on hand ingredients. Was a bit disappointed the citrus "zing" I hoped would jump out at me didn't--so be ready for that, should you follow per directions. Other reviewers offer up some really ingenious tasty zip up ideas.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2013
In a separate small bowl, I mixed 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup brown sugar ( with a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce ); was used to cover the TOP of meatloaf the last 15 minutes of baking--proved to be a good call. Scaled down milk to 1/4 cup, too; another good call!! 1/3 cup chopped onions / 1/4 cup bread crumbs ( just to be safe ). Remember to PREPARE ( use Pam spray )your meatloaf pan. The using 2 bread slices on pan bottom is a time honored old-school trick that works ( still had plenty of pan drippings, though . Even if my family didn't care for that idea, it didn't stop them from happily raving how good THIS meatloaf recipe is--and they hardly ever compliment on my cooking!!

Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
Great recipe, where simple on-hand ingredients entwine to compliment each other: kernel and cream corn, with sour cream and corn muffin / cornbread mix!! Out of ballpark hit, done strictly by recipe directions. Remember to spray that baking pan with PAM!! Here's my modifications on my 2nd run: Generous pinches of all-purpose seasoning, shredded cheese ( blended in the mix )1 and 1/2 tablespoons Smoked Chipolte flavored Tabasco. 45 minutes in 350 degree oven--lightly covering the nicely browned top w/ another generous "pinch" of shredded cheese! My picky family all love this recipe!!

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
I'm glad I added two healthy tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, while mixing the Cream of Chicken soup and cream cheese till smooth; really brought out a nice Italian flavor! While heating up my well oiled (gas)grill, I trimmed all fat from my chicken breasts--treating them with "whispers" of salt, pepper, garlic powder and Cajun spice. I also added nicely sliced mushrooms. Grilled chicken for about 6 minutes, each side--resting them for 15 minutes, tightly covered with aluminum foil over a plate before thinly slicing them. Aside that, I followed the recipe instructions--and my family LOVED it!! With a family of 4, I think I'll double the creamy sauce part

Beef and Biscuit

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
Adding whole kernel corn, green peppers AND a can of Hot spiced Rotel, gave me the very slight Tex-Mex flavor I was hoping--but I think the sour cream and/or amount of cheese used may be why the heat was tamed. Splashing on some juicy chunky salsa, however--saved the day. I liked this dish and am confident my picky family will, too. I'm giving this dish 4 stars: It's a snap to make and gives another idea on what to do w/ that ground beef.

Beef Chimichangas

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
Not bad--given I subbed taco seasoning with a can of Hormel Hot flavored chili (no beans) and used mild Rotel tomatoes/chilis. Also, add oregano, garlic and any other spices you choose AFTER you drain browned beef, so you don't lose them. I also took the tip on using PAM on the baking sheet and made the chimis there, spraying the tops after I folded them all. Cut baking time in half for Flour tortillas. I need more practice folding burrito size tortillas. I personally liked my first time with this dish ( 3-stars). No complaints from my picky family earns the 4th star.

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
This dish is fast to make--and good enough to go fast, impressing MY toughest food critics ( the wife and kids ), along the way. Made as directed, you'll quickly pick up on the Southwest flair of taste that can easily compel you to "jazz" things up w/ creative personal touches. I like to use Rotini pasta--and add thin slices of nicely marinated grilled chicken with this salad; sends my family over the top when I do this.

Comforting Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
Family chefs: Solve the single person / childless couple size by DOUBLING this easy and fast to make dish!! Use NON-STICK COOKING SPRAY on that glass baking dish, too; a light touch of it really helps out!! My family LOVED this dish...and I was getting creatively inspired!! I went full-throttle rouge my 2nd time making this: Made several large baked potatoes--and shredded them ( skin and all!! ), covering the baking dish covered with "savory herb and garlic" flavored soup mix. I hickory smoked the chicken and subbed Cream of Cheddar over cream of celery--and added green beans to the sauce mix!! 30 min. in the oven--I tore off the aluminum top and baked on for 15 more minutes!! As the dish cooled down, I ground down some flavored croutons and lightly topped the thick sauce with it. Major hit with my family--and my toughest food critics!! TARAWVU, you are indeed a genius--thank you for this great dinner dish!!

Sweet Smoked Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
I toned down the 1/4 cup salt back a measure, didn't have apple juice so I didn't add brown sugar to my Bull's Eye Texas style BBQ sauce; continued on with recipe per instructions. The dry rub on these ribs was nicely aromatic--hinting these BONELESS ribs were gonna be GOOD. Used hickory chips in smoker ( being sure to modify and closely watch my cooking time ) To make sure they were tender and perfectly cooked, I "steam broiled" them in 350 degree oven for 30 min. , using just over 1/4 water in closed roasting pan--and they gave that Southwest Texas flavor...with a kiss hint of hot spice! It'd kill my picky eater wife and kids to COMPLIMENT me on a well done dinner job--but they didn't complain, so that's good enough for 4 stars! This recipe model is a KEEPER!!

Hot Dog Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
You can't go wrong making this per directions; your unique "signature" rests with YOUR CHOICE particular flavor style BBQ sauce, your custom amounts of chili powder AND that size "pinch" of red pepper flakes. This "sauce" has American Cook Out splashed all over it---and can inspire one to construct their own fancy Hot Dog. I butterfly cut the Hot Dog franks; speeds up grill time AND doubles the amount of franks, so everyone has plenty to enjoy!!

Whiskey Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
I doubled the sauce, poured some in a container and the rest joined the chicken in a zip bag; both spent the night in the fridge. Later discarded the zip bag of marinade, browned the chicken to a slight blush of brown and baked in the oven @ 350 for 30 min, using saved sauce as a baste. I also used a trace of sauce to simmer mushrooms, diced red and green peppers. Add the veggies to a compliment of your favorite pasta and dreamy creamy Alfredo sauce really sets this dish among the fine restaurant ranks.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
A good call I made was to search for and find a totally different brand butter and cooking sherry than what I'm accustomed to getting. If you're low on sour cream--add in 1 and half cans Cream of Chicken / Mushroom soup. Don't worry when you take dish out from oven and see sauce separation between it and butter. Remove chicken from baking dish onto a serving platter, and scrape clean ALL the sauce from the pan into a small saucepan and whisk or blender stir the sauce. THIS is where you can also adjust slightly more sherry, rosemary and/or thyme to suit your taste. The family didn't leave leftovers---that earned the 4th star on this one.

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
3 to 4 tablespoons of fresh drippings from a 5-star brand BACON in the skillet is perfect for browning BONELESS pork chops and PAM is great for use in the oven pan. No potatoes? No problem: I used one can each of Cream of Mushroom AND Cream of Potato; another excellent call! Double or triple the sauce and you can use Angel hair pasta, regular spaghetti or your favorite pasta shell types. When using BONELESS pork chops--watch your time / temperatures; the result should produce impressively tender chops that do come out tasting like a fine restaurant dish!

Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
If you love Hunt's Manwich sloppy joes and like putting A VERY CLOSE COPY of it from scratch, then this IS your recipe ( I skipped the brown sugar touch )! I was expecting a recipe that would come out being more interesting in taste than Manwich; it was OK--but nothing to excitedly rave about, which explains the 3 stars given.

Southwest Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I spray a glass baking dish w/ PAM before anything. With LARGE flattened chicken breasts, I add 1can of Ro-Tel diced tomatoes/green chilies, 1 can drained whole kernel corn...and 1 package of prepared Rice A Roni "broccoli cheese" rice in ADDITION to shredded cheese. I soaked wooden toothpicks in water for...say...20 or so minutes, just to be safe. And after about 15 min in oven--covered dish w/ foil to keep crust from burning. Don't fret if filling oozes out; kids loved seeing that--and enjoyed this dish, too! A definite keeper that may earn that 5th star very soon!!

Super Fast and Easy Chicken a la King

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Try putting ingredients in slow cooker and have them wait wile you pound the chicken breasts flat, trimming out the fat, cut in cubes and browning them in heated oiled skillet. Placing slightly browned chicken on a paper toweled plate is suggested before they go in the slow cooker. Let it ride on 4-hour High setting. Add a frozen bag of mixed veggies halfway through cooking. Goes very good with Minute Rice. Your discovery of your perfect ingredient tweak combination will add more rating stars to this good recipe!!

Weeknight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I set the oven for 350 degrees. After browning the chops, I dipped each one in the glaze, placed in a glass bake dish and covered the dish for 15 minutes, then removed the cover for an additional 15 minutes. This allows for thorough cooking, giving the glaze the right consistency: not too soupy--and definitely not burnt. Overall, this is a fresh breeze change from the old fried / baked pork chop dish--one that offers lightly nice hints of sweet strawberry glaze flavor.

Grilled Cheese with Tomato

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Fast cheat tip: Use canned diced tomatoes ( flavor variety ones recommended )--goes well w/ either American slice or mozzarella cheese--or both, for that matter!! Excellent Good Friday lunch idea!!!
