Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
All these suggestions are very nice-if you want to splurge (on calories) and have a decadent meal. But don't miss out on the chance to try it without all the added fat. I have made this recipe many times and with a non-stick pan you can omit the butter and halve (or omit) the oil and it's still quite good. I've also made it with and without flour, and it works either way. Also, with a thinner sauce, you can slice up some warm French bread and use that to soak up the extra sauce on your plate-yummy and you don't even need butter!

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
I enjoyed this more than my husband. My measurements may have been off as I tend to guestimate everything. I found this very tender but a little bland. I will look for another similar recipe in the future

Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This was totally awesome for very little effort. I used whole wheat pasta and I used 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp olive oil. I also used 1/2 parmesan cheese and 1/2 Italian seasoned bread crumbs to thicken the sauce (as suggested below) and it worked great. I was out of white, so I used Marsala wine and it was delicious. We halved the recipe as it was just 2 of us, but I could have eaten twice as much, it was so good. I've made scampi before, but from now on I will make it just like this!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I made this exactly as written except I used brown rice as I do with everything (well, I forgot to add water to my egg, but that doesn't count). The brown rice is SO good you really should try it. It was delicious and very much like the take-out fried rice I used to get in New York City. The pepper makes it-I ground black pepper over it right before serving and didn't measure it. The recipe should probably state "ground black pepper to taste" as everyone likes different levels of spiciness, right? I will absolutely make this again-and I will never throw away leftover rice ever again.

Egg Drop Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I am giving this 5 stars for being super easy, cheap, fast, tasty, filling and relatively healthy. I think almost everyone has these ingredients in their house at any given time. I added 1 cup frozen corn and it was really good.

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I used Dyann's suggestions to make this a little healthier and my hubby and I enjoyed these very much. The first time I made these, I used cream of mushroom soup and I will go back to that next time. This will be one of my regulars.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I made this recipe as is, with the only possible exception that I didn't measure anything, just eyeballed everything, and probably doubled the wine. It was delicious and I served it with French bread which we dipped in the extra sauce. This is an easy, company-worthy meal, and rather inexpensive. I will make this often! All the other reviewers' suggestions sound yummy too. I think if you simmer chicken and mushrooms in some wine, you can't go wrong.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
Oh my, this is really good!! I borrowed a couple of suggestions from other users. I placed everything except the corn into a slow cooker for 6 hours on low. I then shredded the chicken, added the corn, and added half a cup of black beans (canned, rinsed and drained). I cooked it for about 30 more minutes in the slow cooker. I served this with shredded cheddar cheese and sliced avocado as toppings. Next time I will add cilantro. It was perfect for my taste and I will make this again and again. Edit 1/20/12: I made this on the stove top with leftover cooked chicken and it all came together in about 30 minutes - pretty impressive! We loved it, but with the chips it was pretty salty. I think I would change the lemon to lime next time, and use low sodium chicken broth OR home made baked tortilla chips with less salt.

Absolutely Fabulous Portobello Mushroom Tortellini

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
I loved this and so did my hubby. Next time I will double the sauce and add extra wine.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Okay, this should be called Pico de Gallo, but it's awesome. I shied away from the 5 chiles, but with only 2 it was pretty tame. That being said, it was gone in minutes. This is super healthy and fat free-5+ stars.

Anaheim Fish Tacos

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I made this for the first time for company-there weren't any leftovers for 4 people. I loved it, but I made a couple mistakes. I used soft taco size flour tortillas (the hubby does not like corn tortillas) and these were much too big. They had a snack size that would have been much better. I also should have used a slotted spoon to fill the tacos because the sauce is watery and messy. I also forgot the cumin, and I love cumin, but it was still delicious. I used "Better than Bouillon" to make the chicken broth so that probably made up for it. I served with lettuce, shredded cheese and "Guacamole" from this site-yum! I will definitely make this again. The runny sauce is annoying-but it gets 5 stars for flavor, texture, and being super healthy! Also, you can make it in a non-stick pan so super easy clean-up!

Delicious. I added some lemon juice and red pepper flakes and topped with fresh grated parmesan.

Cheesy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
This was really good, although I did alter it to suit my tastes, it still deserves 5 stars. I used light butter spread, non-fat milk, reduced fat cheddar and better than bouillon to make broth. I also added celery salt rather than celery, garlic powder and fresh ground black pepper.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
This was delicious, but one is not filling enough for dinner (for me anyway).

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
This was excellent, but the burgers were too small for our big appetites! Next we will make 8 burgers instead of 12.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
My hubby and I devoured this. I did not use the 2 tbsp bacon fat but probably doubled the olive oil instead. Left out the wine since we didn't have any.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Very easy, healthy, fast and the hubby loved it! I added veggies and stir-fried for maybe five minutes and then added the shrimp. Probably would be too spicy for kids.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
My husband makes this at least once a month, only we call it Chicken Parmesan. We always have leftovers because it's just the 2 of us and the leftovers nuke up suprisingly well. The salad idea is a good idea too. We usually melt shredded mozzarella on top (only on the breasts to be eaten that night) during the last 5 minutes of baking and serve with marinara sauce. Yum!

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I've made this many times, but I never measure anything, and it's always delicious. I actually prefer walnuts to pine nuts and they are much cheaper. I always use fresh grated parmesan and toast some chopped walnuts to serve on top.

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This was exactly the slow cooker recipe I've been looking for for years-but I did a couple things differently because of what I had on hand and I think it made it even better. I used cooking sherry instead of white wine and I also used less sour cream than it called for. Will make often!
