Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I thought this was great. Wasn't too time consuming to make and the taste was really good. I used a whole packet of alfredo sauce mix and it was perfect.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Yum. This soup was easy to make, and tastes great. I added about a cup more water, extra potatoes, ham, celery and carrots. Having it for lunch at work now, thanks for the recipe. I will be making a lot in the winter!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Made these for an appetizer on Christmas Day. I made these in stages so I wouldn' thave so much to do on Christmas. I seeded the jalepeno, then blanched them so they wouldn't be too hot-spicy. Put them in ice cold water to stop cooking and retain color, dried them and filled with cream cheese. I cooked the bacon in oven for approx 7-10 mins, just so they start to cook a little but aren't done, then wrapped the jalepenos using one full piece of bacon and used water soaked toothpicks to hold them together. Wrapped up the platter and refrigerated for a day & 1/2. Simply, popped them in the oven on Christmas on 350 for 25 -30 mins and they were done perfectly....oh, even though people warn not to touch your eyes after handling jalepenos, I touched my cheek/nose area and it was potent, burned for awhile...careful.

I made this camping and everyone, especially my 4 years old son and my 14 year old nephew, loved it. Will make it a camping tradition!

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This soup was ok. It tasted kind of spicy to me, I added more beans than called for because it seemed like there wasn't enough substance in it. I loved the kale in it, just wasn't crazy about the soup in general.

Hot Bean Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Loved this bean dip, so good and easy to make. I didn't change a thing. I had this as a side dish for my son's first birthday, everyone loved it and my sister stopped by the next day for seconds. "Do you have any of that bean dip left?" "Why yes I do...surprisingly."

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Made this when we went camping, I was really hoping it would be good because it was the salad I was to bring to the table for two nights. I made it 24 hrs ahead, didn't add the carrots, 1/2 the sugar and soaked the red onion in water for about 5 mins before mixing the salad to tone down the onion flavor. Was awesome, my husband asked why I don't make it at home, now I will! :)

Beef Yakitori

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I marinated for about 5 hours and the flavor was excellent. We BBQ'd chunks of sirloin on skewers and the meat was so tender, I've never had sirloin steak that tender! Will definitely make again. The house smelled wonderful, just from making the marinade! Loved the green onions too!

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
This salad is awesome! I'm so glad I tried this and made it for my sons 1st birthday! I got lots of compliments and didn't even include the pear because they weren't ripe. I can't wait to make with some ripe pear!

Clams Italiano

This had good flavor and the clams were tasty. Next time I make, not so much oregano, used fresh parsley.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This recipe was so easy and the perfect flavor and richness of the good ol comfort food I was looking for. Definitely add 3/4 cup of milk before baking, I only cooked for 30 mins and stayed moist next day.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
This soup was great, it thickened at the end, just as I was worried it was too soupy. I added a few chunks of garlic to cook w/peas and ham too that gave it added flavor. I simmered the ham for at least an hour before adding peas and veggies.

Olive and Blue Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This was good. I made with black and green olives, rolled in walnuts and served with red chili sauce and wheat thins. It was easy to make the night before, it wasn't flying off the appetizer table, but then there were LOTS of appetizers on the table, so maybe people just didn't realize just how good it really was!

Bourbon Barbecue Slow Cooker Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I was disappointed with these beans. For one, it took a lot of ingredients and time, and two, I was looking for a really good bbq bean recipe. I made this yesterday for a super bowl party, and the whole thing just didn't jive right with me. It was kind of like a chili, but with a bbq taste. I didn't care for the bacon and hamburger in there and I I love these ingredients. All I can say is, people got a bowl, took a bite or two and set it aside, including myself. I followed the recipe exactly too. It sounded good at first, but all together, it didn't taste right for me. Sorry.

Vegetable Dill Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Made this dip for an appetizer veggie tray for Thanksgiving. It was light and flavorful and not super filling right before the big meal. I got a lot of compliments and we continued to eat it with leftover veggies. It's different than ranch, which is a nice change. The recipe makes a lot too!

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This meatloaf was good, the consistency was great, good sandwiches the next day, definitely satisfied the meatloaf craving I had. However, I have managed to make it better in previous meatloaf renditions. I did like the toasted crumbled bread, and will use in the future, usually I use breadcrumbs or crackers.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
I changed this recipe some with the veggies I used, canned beans (used chili and kidney) and used turkey and johnsons bratwurst, but followed the spices per the recipe and I loved it. I make a lot of chili and am pretty particular about the taste of my chili, this one's a keeper and maybe the replacement of my "go to chili"!

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I ended up marinating for two nights instead of one and it turned out really tender and flavorful, perfect for the BBQ. Will keep this recipe handy for more BBQ's to come.
