Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
Absolutely delicious, decadent entree! Since it uses cream, it's only a once in a blue moon meal, but oh....! Anything that tastes this good usually takes a lot more prep, but this is so quick & easy. The only change I made the second time I made this was to switch to boneless breasts & I also doubled the recipe because it's even better warmed over the next day. Also added a bit more seasoning salt & pepper to the sauce. The mushroom flavor really comes out, so that's a big plus in our book. Also, the fact that I can substitute fat-free half & half for the cream to make a healthier version is great. Just a bit of thickening agent to make it thicker & it's perfect!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
According to my hubby, this was "da bomb"! Said it was the best slaw he's ever ate. Almost identical to mine, but the addition of the vinegar really changes it so everything melds together perfectly.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I've always HATED cauliflower, even when soaking in cheese sauce to disguise the flavor. But, I've got to say, this is delicious! I even went back for a second helping. I prepared it exactly per the recipe, no changes & it was great! My mom couldn't believe it when I said I was actually eating cauliflower now! Thanks!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
Searched all over for a good french onion soup recipe with no luck--there was always something missing. So glad I found this recipe! I've made it twice & it's the best! I made it exactly per the recipe the first time & it was a wonderfully rich, filling soup. Second time I did use croutons. Definitely worth using actual gruyere cheese. The best!

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
The BEST no bake cookie recipe I've found (even better than my grandma's!)! Most no bakes are on the dry side, but these are wonderfully soft & MOIST! Thanks!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
WOW! I hate making banana bread, but I love the taste so these are a great alternative. Very moist, perfectly peaked muffins w/a tasty crumb topping that sets off the flavor. I did add a bit a spice to the batter. One of our new favorites!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
Delicious! Not a big fan of red peppers, so I was worried the taste would be overwhelming, but it mellowed nicely during the grilling process. My husband fixed grilled chicken at the same time & they partnered very well together.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
I'm one of those weird people who don't like their food to touch on their plate, so wasn't sure how I'd like these flavors all mixed together, but it was quite good, just needed a bit of tweaking to get more flavor. This is how I changed it up the second time to account for our family's taste & we all thought it was OUTSTANDING! I used 2 lb ground turkey which I seasoned w/garlic powder, pepper & cilantro, substituted a can of tomatoes w/green chiles for the diced tomatoes, used 2 packages taco seasoning, omitted the water & used 1/2 cup salsa instead, used 2 packages Jiffy corn muffin mix & mixed the corn in with the mix. Put a very thin layer of the corn bread mix on the bottom, then layered as directed, throwing in a layer of shredded taco/mexican cheese before topping w/the remainder of the corn bread mix. Garnished w/fresh chopped tomatoes, green onions, black olives & non-fat sour cream to make it more visually appealing.

Brat 'N' Tot Bake

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This is a great casserole. Really retains the taste of the bratwurst. (I've tried several other brat recipes that end up tasting nothing like brats.) Hubby gave is his highest praise by telling me to put it into the regular meal rotation. I did cut back on the sour cream & used only 1 cup instead of 2, but otherwise didn't change anything.

Aunt Jewel's Chicken Dressing Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
Great recipe! My 5 year old asked if I could make it again the next day! Some other reviews said that it was soggy, but mine wasn't soggy at all--maybe they poured the soups on top of the dressing, instead of on top of the chicken??? Next time I think I'll throw in some veggies too.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
Not a big black pepper fan, so cut way back on the black pepper. This had a really nice flavor that I knew my husband would love. Was really surprised by how well my kids liked it! Even my super picky 7 year old gobbled this down!

Simple Ranchy Breaded Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
Great flavor, can taste the ranch mix, though my kids all thought it tasted like sour cream & onion potato chips--didn't tell them otherwise because they HATE ranch! My husband doesn't like fish & I've been searching for fish recipes that he'll eat. This is only the 2nd recipe I've found that was successful with not only my husband, but the kids as well! Great!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
One of the easiest fruit pies I've ever made, so simple to throw together. I've had a problem finding a blueberry pie recipe that is not too tart, not too sweet & was thrilled with this one. The filling sets up perfectly. Followed the directions, but did turn down the temp pretty quickly as the crust would have been too dark otherwise. Next time I'll bake it at 375 instead. Perfect warmed up w/a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Absolutely wonderful! I've never found a fish recipe that my fish-hating husband would eat, but he actually LOVED this one! The topping really was a hit. Next time we're going to add some crushed red pepper to give it some heat. Thanks for a great keeper!

Chocolate Caramel Nut Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
OHMYGOSH! My husband, who doesn't really have much of sweet tooth, had to be tackled in order for me to get a helping of this! First time I made it, I used fat free whipped topping & Gala apples, white chocolate pudding & left out the grapes. Unfortunately, it turned out kind of runny, as did another salad I used the fat free topping with. Next time, I used light & it came out great. I also made this w/one 3 oz box of french vanilla & one box of butterscotch instead of the 5 oz. vanilla & it was really good too. It doesn't really look that appetizing, but when I take to a potluck I put a tag on it that says "Snicker Salad" & the bowl gets cleaned out!

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
Interesting take on carrots! Very tasty, easy to prepare, special enough for a holiday dinner side dish! I also tried it w/store bought canned carrots (2 cans) & it turned out just as good!

Easy Stovetop Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
Delicious, super economical recipe. Doesn't taste exactly like a cobbler, but it's yummy anyway. I've made if w/3 different fruits--peaches, cherries & apples--& all were hits w/my family. I made it exactly like the recipe calls for the first time & it was a little too sweet for us. The next time I left out the sugar & cut WAY back on the cake mix that I put on top. Used about 1/8 of the box, instead of 1/2. Also, I melted the butter before drizzling over the cake mix & it seemed to work out better. When I made it the next 2 times, I used canned cherry & apple pie fillings, & again omitted the extra sugar. I time it so that the dessert is cooking on the stovetop while we're eating supper & when we're done, we have a freshly made, deliciously warm dessert ready for us. Great recipe!

Mock Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
All 3 of my kids loved this--a rare feat in our household! I substituted ground turkey for the beef & added a packet of onion soup mix. I also needed more than 1 cup of crushed crackers to coat the patties, maybe because of the texture of the turkey. Served w/mashed potatoes & country gravy. YUM!
