Greek Chicken Burgers with Feta

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
I don't usually have ground chicken but it was marked down so I picked it up and this was a terrific way to use it!! Yummy! I pretty much stuck to the recipe but added a little dill and left out the sundried tomatoes since I didn't have them. DELICIOUS!! Very moist and I spread spicy pepper hummus on the bun with red onion and basil leaves. Thank you, will definitely make again!

Amy's Garlic Egg Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I will always "marinade" my chicken in egg yolks from now on!! These were the most tender chix tenderloins I have ever made! I can't wait to try fried chicken in the egg yolks. All 3 of my kids gobbled it up and the garlic level was perfect! Just use common sense when measuring the bread crumbs. Thanks!!!

Lentil Chili

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
This was flipping awesome!! I had ground turkey AND a bag of lentils so ta-da!! I added some smoked paprika about 1 tbs, a splash of worstchest. sce, a tiny drop or two of liquid smoke. For the tomatoes I just added one big can of diced and a squeeze of tomato paste. I threw in some chopped fresh green beans and a little finely chopped carrot. MMMMM, and a meal you can feel good about eating. Even the kids loved it. Thanks for the great idea :)

Hummus III

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I liked this, too bad 2/3 of my kids did not. Guess its not really a kid thing. I added extra garlic and a little cayenne. Its okay. I've had better. Not sure if it was worth the $7 on tahini, but I'll find another use for it. Thanks for the post!!

Very Easy Shrimp Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
I think I was the only one that ate this at our little get together. I liked it okay, maybe I should have added a little Old Bay in hindsight. It was super cheap and easy though, so 4 stars. On the recipes defense, I did have a lot of other great apps out, so maybe that was it :)

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
These turned out GREAT! The second batch anyway. 15 mins was way too long and they burned. But luckily I had more crackers, so just threw together another batch. Baked 7 mins only. I think I went too light on the oil, maybe that was the problem. I hosted a Mary Kay party and they were a hit on the table. Yummy, and thanks for the idea. Im not sure why, but I was the only one who had never had them?? Where have I been :)

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
AW man was this good! I only glanced at the recipe for a sec then made it so I forgot the water. Dont think it made much difference w/out it. I put in Rice Vinegar since thats what I had and the flavor of thats a little sweeter. MMM this was yummy! At the end I put in a little chopped cilantro just for fun. I think it added an extra layer of flavor. Thanks for the idea, I didnt know what to do with my cabbage! :)

Comforting Cube Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This was awesome! But, I changed it quite a bit. Based on history, cube steak needs a long time to cook. Because of that & on others' reviews I did it in my crock pot. Instead of 2 cans of crm mush (or crm whatever) I did one can of beef gravy & 1 crm mush. I did use the cajun seasoning, didnt really notice it tho, just good flavor all around. Added 1/2 packet of onion soup, only about 1 cup of sprite and a big splash of h20. Sliced some onions and stuck it all in the pot for about 4 hours. Could have gone longer actually, but its really, really good. (the rest is still cooking in it) Not too salty w/ my changes. I never recommend 2 cans of condensed soup, its very salty if you dont fully water/milk it down. Finally I added a corn starch/water combo after I took the meat out and let it thicken for a few. Delicious! Thanks for the great idea w/ ingredients I had on hand!!

Hearty Turkey Soup with Parsley Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I used just chopped turkey from T-day,(about 1.5 cups) not the carcass. But first I sauteed the sliced carrots/celery w/ a cpl heaping spoonfulls of garlic in evoo and a splash of chix stock. After about 30 mins I added the rest of the can of stock, about 4 cups of water and a chicken bouillion cube, tbls of thyme, splash of white wine and a can of diced potatoes (about $.50) instead of cooking and dicing potatoes. Toward the end I added the fridg biscuit dough torn up, and a cpl tbls of fresh flat leaf parsley. It was a tad bland so I put in a cpl shakes of regular ole seasoned salt/pepper then a tad of tabasco. We all loved it including the kids... another way to uniquely use leftover T-day turkey!! Thanks (Oh yea.. who has rutabaga?? :)

Southwestern Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
What a different way to use the turkey from T-day! I changed it a bit (as ususal) I sauteed celery w/a bunch of jarred garlic in evoo, then added the turkey, reg.size can of diced tomatoes,(didnt understand using whole canned tomatoes) 32oz box of chix broth, a drained can of black beans, 1/2 a beer I was drinking :),squeeze of lime juice, and about 1/2 cup of creamed corn leftover (I'd recommend a splash of cream/whole milk to thicken and cut the green chili spice if you dont like it spicy) and a tad of frozen corn, another tad of frozen okra, cumin and chili powder, can of green chilis.. then finished it w/ stirring in chopped green onions (either add them early, or late otherwise they just taste wierd) also fresh cilantro last 15 mins. Super Yummy!! I put some cayenne pepper in my bowl only since I was feeding the kids. Shredded the monterey jack atop and served w/ tortilla chips. Everyone totally loved it! Wouldn't have guessed it was leftover Thanksgiving. After all the turkey..stuffing..mshd pots.. this was a great change w/out wasting $$. Thanks for the awesome post!!

Vienna Schnitzel

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I'm not sure why you need all the milk?? I just whisked the egg and it was fine, but I've never added milk to egg when used as a binder. Maybe I've been doing it wrong. I also mixed 1/2 Panko brdcrmbs w/ italian brdcrmbs because they hold together better while frying and stay super crisp tossed it w/ parm.cheese.. YUMMY! Made a mushroom sauce to top them with out of thanksgiving mushrooms I had leftover. Squirted a bit of lemon juice at the end... Thanks for the great idea! I had 1/2 a pork loin from a cpl days ago I needed to make into something and this hit the spot! Pounding it out makes it go a long way, made 7 good size pieces...Kids 4-12 loved it! (Minus the mushrooms :)

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
My kids just went nuts over this!! I was worried since I had not made it before but they just loved it. I had leftover rotisserie chicken from the other night, then at the grocery stores' frozen dept. they had frozen dumplings. I never noticed them before, so it gave me the idea. Came home and searched the ususal allrecipes! I only used 1 can of crm chix soup, 1.5 cans of chx broth, the peas/carrots and just 1/2 can of cubed potatoes instead of dicing whole ones. Besides have you noticed the price of potatoes?? Thickened it up w/ corn starch plopped the dumplings on and WAH-LAH! Probably better on a night thats not 80 degrees, but very good!

Apricot Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
This was good, I put garlic pepper salt on the cut up chx brsts about 1 lb. then sauteed in evoo til browned. Mixed about 1/4 cup apricot preserves w/ a few shakes soy sauce, a bit of leftover chix broth, a shake of crushed red pepper and a splash of white wine (that I was drinking :) mixed it together and poured it on the chix... covered and simmered on low while the rice cooked. Instead of the corn starch I just mixed a little Wondra in the sauce (tilt the pan & fork stir it on the side) It was super yummy and the kids loved it! Next time I will finish the dish w/ a little parsley just for presentation. Thanks for the post!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
This was awesome! Great super easy idea! I used "cant believe its not butter" , microed for a few seconds, added the honey and dry mustard. I shook some garlic/pepper/salt (find it @ Big Lots for like .89) all over before I poured the butter mixture on. I do think some crushed rosemary would be a good addition too. I used red onion and they carmelized very nicely. YUM-O! Super easy & flavorful! Thanks for the post and cant wait to try w/ regular ole' potaotes!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This was great, but I took the chix breasts (all I had was bone-in, so I had to shred it later) in a can of chix broth, 5-6 garlic cloves and cooked it a cpl hrs on high; but I added 1/2 packet of dry Italian dressing while it cooked, instead of adding the real oily dressing later. The flavor was infused in the chix. Then drained the broth and reserved in freezer for later, & took out the garlic. Put the chix back in w/ the Sweet Baby Ray bbq, that I only bought today after reading all the comments on it. It was great! I put a little of the broth in there w/ a cpl shakes of W. sce cooked a cpl more hours on low. Served on buns like everybody else! Thanks for the great post!
