Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
I was planning a dinner for our parish priest this past weekend. I wanted a greek theme. This marinade is truly awesome. It was so good that my husband even commented on how good the meal was! I marinated both chicken and lamb (for kabobs)using this recipe and I kept the meat in the fridge, overnight, in freezer baggies. The meat was so tender! Some of the best lamb I've ever eaten (and mediterranean food is my favorite) Thank you, thank you, thank you for submitting this recipe.

Mostaccioli with Spinach and Feta

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
I made this the other night with ingredients I had on hand: 2 cans of petit chopped tomatoes, drained (instead of fresh) and ziti instead of mostaccioli. I also increased the garlic to 3 cloves. This dish turned out wonderful! It was very flavorful, and pretty, too. I served it as a side to a concoction of cooked Italian sausage with red peppers, onions and minced garlic (stir fried in EVOO). My husband actually topped his pasta with the sausage mixture and enjoyed his "one dish" meal. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks for submitting.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
Very good and easy soup to make! I made this tonight substituting salsa for the enchilada sauce. Also, I did not have fresh cilantro to garnish. It was a very good soup but think it could have been better had I followed the recipe as written. I will definitely try this again.

Chocolate Caramel Nut Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
Oh my goodness! This pie is so good on so many levels! I made sure to follow the recipe EXACTLY as I do not fancy myself much of a baker (I tend to opt for "savory" as opposed to sweet in my areas of cooking expertise) The instructions were very easy to follow. Yes, it is a time consuming process but, believe me, the final result is well worth it. I'm thinking the prior reviewer must not have used a graham cracker crust as I cannot imagine anyone not loving this pie! The only thing I may change is to increase the proportion of the cream cheese layer...I only had a 10inch pie plate to use and could have used more of this layer to completely cover the sliced Snickers(tm)bars. I plan on using this recipe for a Girl Scout mother/daughter bake off next month. I will let you all know how we fared! PS...this pie is very rich that instead of 8 servings as listed, I think 12-16 smaller servings is more realistic for the waist line!

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Oh my! A very satisfying taste sensation! Only changes I made were using fresh salmon instead of canned and fresh garlic instead of powder. Made this for Ash Wednesday and it was very difficult for my family and myself to keep it to one serving only to maintain our fast! Enjoyed the leftovers immensely...I do believe it was better on the 2nd day. Only drawback was that, with fresh salmon, it was a rather expensive dish to make. I will keep my eye for salmon on sale and buy in bulk (freezing for future use). This is definitely a keeper and I will add this recipe to our Lenten meal list for meatless Fridays! Thanks for submitting such a sumptuous soup recipe

Cheddar Artichoke Quiche Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
EDIT: I was going through my old reviews and realized that I did not review your recipe fairly. I tried it again EXACTLY as written and was pleased with the results. I still think that the next time I make this I may add some jalepenos or green chiles. casserole. Thanks for sharing.

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
EDIT: I have made this recipe several times: I've done as is and have experimented with some additions (chipotle peppers/cumin/my spicy red seasoning blend/minced garlic/cilantro) I've also served over both rice and tortillas, with and without added shredded cheddar/monteray jack. Every version has been a success. This is really a wonderful base recipe and my family thanks you immensely.

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Made this last evening for the family. Everyone enjoyed it. It was an easy and tasty dish to prepare. My only modifications were adding sauted onions, garlic, celery, fresh rosemary and sage to the stuffing mix. This would make for a very fine "potluck" entree.

Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Yum! A real kid pleaser. Being true to my nature I had to make a modification or two: I used half the amount of onion and I added some crushed red pepper flakes for a little kick. I served it with homemade fries. We have a lot of full tummies this evening! Thanks for sharing.

Quick Chicken And Wine

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This was an easy recipe to work using the suggestions from other reviewers. I added garlic to the butter and fresh rosemary and basil to the parmesan cheese. Thanks to Chrysis for the instructions on proper dredging technique as it was a very valuable tip assuring success. After removing the chicken from the pan and placing it in a warm oven I did a wine reduction instead of the method suggested in the recipe. Either way, the chicken was fine without the sauce. I would make it again without the wine and call this dish simply "parmesan chicken".

Roast Leg of Lamb

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
My lamb turned out very moist and flavor-filled. I followed others' suggestions (oil rub, salting and peppering the outside and turning halfway through roasting)and was quite pleased with the results. Easter dinner was a success. Thank you for a very simple yet tasty recipe.

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
EDIT: I just tried this again using the FRESH, not dried, herbs. What a difference this makes! Definitely "5 star material"! I would imagine this would work with any combination of fresh herbs (I'm going to try basil and rosemary next!) Old review: I am sure I would rate this "5 stars" if only I had used fresh herbs rather than dry! Even with the dried herbs the chicken was quite tasty. I used the chicken, along with tomato and onion, to make pita sandwiches for tonight's dinner. I then topped it with my "Easy Greek Yogurt Cucumber Sauce" as a spread. Delish! I'm saving this to my recipe box.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I made 3 substitutions due to lack of ingredients: I substituted plain, drained yogurt for the sour cream, half-n-half for the heavy cream and used additional parmesan and a little pecorino for the romano cheese. Other than that I really tried to follow the recipe exactly. Unfortunately, a taste test yielded a somewhat bland dip. I then added about 1/4 cup each of mayo and cream cheese, along with some fresh ground pepper, a little kosher salt, some red seasoning blend, extra garlic and a splash of lemon juice. Ahhh. Much better. 3 stars for the original (albeit with my minor substitutions) and 5 stars for the modified recipe. Average = 4 stars. Still a good rating for a good base recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
A very easy and tasty dish. I was looking for something to make using leftover spaghetti noodles. Only change I made was using fresh oregano rather than dried (just because I happened to have it on hand) and it was wonderful. A keeper for sure.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
"This is so good!" Those were my husband's exact words. I usually like to change recipes to make them my own but because of all the wonderful reviews I decided to follow the recipe as written (although I was concerned about the amount of salt). I'm glad I did...this was a very moist, tender and juicy bird. This will definitely be in my recipe rotation. I'm wondering, though, if any preferred spice blend can be used as a rub? Hmmmmm. It will be fun experimenting. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
You score "5 stars" for an excellent basic recipe with the added originality of using almonds instead of pine nuts. It was wonderful, as is. However, I do prefer my pesto with added parmesan cheese (the real stuff, not processed) and a touch of lemon juice. Your recipe accepted these modifications with delightful results.

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
My children would like to review this recipe: "It was totally awesome!" -Bethany, age 13 "Two thumbs up"-Paul, age 9. Now my review: A very easy base recipe. We did not have strawberries so substituted frozen bananas and a Hershey bar. Wow, was it tasty. Can't wait to try it with other frozen fruit. Thanks for sharing.

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I'm truly sorry but this salad was just okay. I really, really wanted to like it as it is currently the big hit on the "exchange" but I must be honest. I made exactly as written and ended up with mush. What did I do wrong? Maybe I'll try again and do it this way: Toss vinegrette with everything except the bread. Gently toss bread into salad JUST PRIOR to serving.
