Colorful Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This is a good basic recipe but you need to add things to it to make it more flavorful. I added red bell peppers and yellow squash to the veggies. I added about 1/4 c. white wine when I added the chicken and pasta. I noticed I needed more broth so I added 1 can of cream of celery and about 1/3c more broth. The pasta would have absorbed all of the broth had I not added extra. I seasoned with salt and pepper then put it in the oven. The cooking times are RIGHT ON. I only made 1/2 a serving and it seriously made enough for 4 people with left overs. It's a good quick recipe to use left over chicken. Thanks so much.

Beef Stroganoff with White Wine

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
This recipe is pretty good but it's not really a "stroganoff". It would work better with rice than pasta but we really felt like pasta so I thickened it more. In my opinion, the wine sauce should be reduced down about 1/2 way before adding the cream/flour mixture. I added 1c heavy cream and 1c sour cream since I didn't have half n half. I also used left over steak from the weekend and chopped it up in 1" chunks. Since it was already cooked, I just threw everything in the onion mixture together. I omitted the mushrooms because my hubby hates them. I added peas, 1TBS of worscheshire sauce and a tad of crushed red pepper to give it another dimension. This was a good recipe. I'm not one that can just throw things together, though once I have an idea I never stick to the recipe. So, thanks for the wonderful idea. It made leftovers. :)

Stir-Fry Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
These were really good. I only used 2 tbs of fish sauce and low sodium soy sauce. I simmered covered for 5 minutes then removed the cover. I tossed in a bit of crushed red pepper for a little spice. It was definitely a 4.5

Lancashire Hot Pot

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
3.5 stars. I feel like it needed an additional something...maybe a bit of wine, spice, je ne se quoi? I added peas and a bit of sage which gave it a nice flavor. I also browned ground lamb with the onions, added spices, and then layered. It was nice. Definitely a comfort food. I'll make again for another rainy day by the fire. It's a nice change...just needs a bit of tweaking...

Herbed Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
This is delicious. I made it several times. I have even done it on the stove top by just sauteing the onion in the oil. Then adding the rice to brown it. Then I added the broth and covered. It comes out very nicely.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
I only had inexpensive basalmic and I didn't feel like going to the store so I used 1/2 vinager and 1/2 red wine. This mellowed out the tang of the cheap vinager. *** Ok, bought high quality balsamic and WOW. This is the way to serve lamb chops. Thank you.

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Very good and easy. My chicken began to burn so I had to cover it toward the end.

Beef Stroganoff II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Very simple. I used left over beef that was already cooked so I didn't marinate. I threw in pan with onion and some olive oil to reheat. Then, I added about 1/4 c. wine. Followed the rest of the directions omitting the flour. Very good and easy.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
OK, so I am not a Jambalaya aficionado, so I can't say how good this compares to "real" jambalaya, however....this is GOOD STUFF. I added red bell peppers and extra celery. I also added about 1c more broth. I also added 1 can stewed tomatoes. Oh, I only had one can of chicken broth so I used 1 c chicken broth and 2 cups beef broth. It was just perfect, so I believe tomorrow I may need to add some extra broth or something to make it not pasty. This dish is delicious.
