White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: May 16, 2015
This was a good recipe, but would have been a little mild for my family. I added a can of Rotel tomatoes and some red pepper flakes. With that addition, we thought it was delicious! Oh, another thing - I didn't have lasagna noodles, so used 8 oz. of thin spaghetti and mixed it all together instead of layering. Saved a little time and tasted just the same!

PHILADELPHIA Smarter Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Excellent recipe - just a tiny bit bland for my taste, so I added garlic - garlic is good in almost anything!! I used whole wheat pasta flour instead of white flour, and added some fresh spinach at the end. Served it over whole wheat pasta - it was great.

Real Southern Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
I am from the south, and while this is not necessarily traditional southern cornbread, it is very good. I needed a large batch for a group, and everyone loved this recipe. It is much richer and denser than most recipes though, and it makes a huge pan - I used a 9 x 13 baking dish, and it was almost too small. To address some of the other comments: yes, many recipes for southern cornbread use flour - usually half flour and half cornmeal - makes it softer than using cornmeal alone. Yes, many recipes for southern cornbread use sugar - some people think it is a requirement to have a little sugar. And yes, while there are plenty of self-rising mixes available, a lot of people still bake "from scratch" and make our own cornbread, biscuits, and bread!! Just a matter of preference and convenience.

Western North Carolina Vinegar Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This is not bad for EASTERN NC BBQ sauce - but as someone who has lived all my life in western NC, I can tell you that the traditional sauce in this part of the state will never have vinegar in it. I used "Texas Pete" hot sauce (another western NC product!)instead of Tabasco, and added a lot more than the recipe called for. I also eliminated the lemon juice. My family is used to the western NC sweet, tomato based sauces, I was afraid that vinegar plus lemon juice would be too, too much! This sauce works well for grilling and marinating - I used it on chicken - but since it is thin, you need to baste often to make sure the flavor is even.

Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I knew that my mother had a trick for boiling eggs - they always came out just right and peeled easily. This is it! Thanks so much for sharing this!

Chicken in a Pot

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
This seems way too simple to be so good! The only thing I changed was to use flour instead of bread crumbs to dredge the chicken, but I also doubled the sauce. Even my picky eater loved the sauce over brown rice. I'm always looking for EASY and new ways to prepare chicken - this is definitely a keeper!

15-Minute Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Very easy and tasty - I substituted ranch dressing for half of the mustard, baked with crumbled bacon on top. I can see this in a slow cooker as well - the sauce would be good on rice or noodles.

Chicken In Sour Cream

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
Very good - the entire family liked it - even my picky teenage daughter. Had to use dry veggie soup mix instead of onion, and I added Pepperidge Farm dry stuffing mix on top. I think we'd all prefer chicken breasts though - the skinless, boneless thighs were a little too fatty.

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I used mozarella (didn't have Swiss on hand), and added 1/2 c. sour cream and 1/2 t. curry powder to the soup mix. My only issue was that we needed more stuffing. Would also be good without the stuffing and served over rice or noodles. Easy and good.

Texas Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
