Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
Very good! I started with raw chicken breasts and pan cooked them first, but usually use canned chicken for recipes like this. I didn't use jalepenos since I didn't have any on hand, and the spice was just right. Cooked on the stove for about 20 minutes then transferred to a slow cooker to hold until dinner. I finished it with sharp cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream and we ate with crackers.

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
I was afraid that even after baking the crust for only 10 minutes as other reviewers said that it wasn't going to come out of the pan -- but it was fine. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding about 1/2 cup more pretzels and it was a big hit! I made it the night before and maybe that was why the crust was perfect. It is super-rich, though!!

My Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
I had to tweak just a tad given what I had on hand... I had already used my ham bone, so I used Better Than Bullion's Ham Stock to make up the flavor. Wonderful stuff! I use it for any recipe with ham in it (such as pea soup or potato soup). I also didn't have celery, so omitted it. Finally, because I was trying to cut down on time, I put the rice in the steamer to cook while the peas cooked on the stove. I then mixed together for about 10 minutes to get the finished dish. My husband spiced his up with cayenne and Tabasco, but I liked it as is.

Normal Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Great with the suggested changes by other reviewers -- add about 1/4 cup brown sugar, some minced garlic, a dash of olive oil, and some minced garlic. Also, a few shakes of ground ginger finished it off. Smells fabulous and tastes even better! Served with rice and broccoli. My 3 and 5 year old non-adventuresome eaters were very complimentary and ate everything on their plates!

Slow Cooker Lasagna II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
It was okay. Pretty dry. I will have to use the other half-jar of sauce when I plate this every time. I did change it slightly by using cottage cheese instead of ricotta (it's what I had on hand) and penne pasta instead of lasagna noodles. Easy to make and nice that I can do it on *my* schedule instead of frantically trying to get it done when everyone's ready for dinner. Will try again, next time adding two full jars of sauce.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
Quick and easy! I used shredded parmesan cheese instead of grated, and minced (jarred) garlic -- yum! The parmesan cheese was a little goopy at first, but after whisking a little more it incorporated nicely. I added a dash of nutmeg and a dash of italian seasoning and that really made it flavorful. I served this over garden vegetable pasta (12 oz box) and it was way too much sauce. Probably about right for 16-20 oz. of dried pasta instead.

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
More like "sauteed broccoli." I left out the red pepper flakes since my husband likes to spice his stuff WAY up and my kids don't want any spice at all. I used fresh crushed black pepper and jarred minced garlic. Don't think I'll make broccoli any other way from now on!

Oh-So-Good Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Oops! Forgot to add the cheese into the casserole itself, so I just added it on top at the end. Didn't use mushrooms, sauteed cooked chicken in a packet of taco seasoning mix and water (per directions on pkt), used 3 cups brown rice, and added pinto beans and corn (that's what I had on hand). Served with Baked Scoops chips on the side. Yum! PS -- I did add 2 dashes hot sauce to the mix, along with salt and pepper. My hubby loaded up his plate then doused it cayenne pepper and hot sauce and was in heaven. :) Thanks!

Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Fabulous! I doubled the recipe so I could use the entire box of pasta (I used small wagon wheels because I have small children), but only used 1/2 cup of bread crumbs. I can't imagine using as much as the recipe called for! I added a cup of frozen green peas with the shrimp to make it more of a one dish meal. And I kept the garlic in the pan, but I took the shrimp out when I added the bread crumbs. I then mixed it all together again and poured over the pasta. My preschoolers and my husband loved it, and it gave me a great excuse to drink a glass of wine with dinner. :)

Rosemary Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Even though I used some gruyere cheese to layer in there, it was still just a little bland for my taste. A little extra salt and pepper would probably help. I used some on my serving on my plate and it was fine. It did have a nice "Wow" factor for my potluck dinner. I cubed the potatoes instead of slicing, to make it easier for my preschoolers to eat on their own, and cooked it about 10 minutes longer (about 55 minutes total). Still very yummy!

Pudding No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies

I add a little dollop (or two) of creamy peanut butter to the finished product to make it even more yummy!

Chocolate Cherry Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I'm making my second batch today as I type this... yum! I made them exactly as the recipe called for and didn't have any problems with stickiness of the dough. I did make sure to weigh each half to ensure that I had similar sized logs. I dipped the bottoms in melted semi-sweet chocolate and then drizzled melted white baking chocolate on the tops. I baked them exactly as the recipe called for, including flipping them over. Perfect! I can see that if you increased the chips or the cherries that the dough might not be stable enough to hold together well, so stick to about 1/2 cup of each. There is plenty to make it look pretty AND taste good!

Creamy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Tasted more like tuna noodle casserole than chicken. My kids wouldn't touch any part except the broccoli - go figure! I agree with another poster that this needs a little more liquid -- it left alot of pasta crunchy because it wasn't covered in liquid. I even added a little shredded cheddar cheese to the top to make it more appealing, but it was still a no go. I did add some salt and pepper to it when I mixed the dish, since I was using the Healthy Selection soup. Still didn't help much. I will stick to using my canned chicken in Bisquick recipes instead.

White Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I've made it as written (without the fresh cilantro, since I didn't have any) and it was great! This time around I added 1/3 C. finely diced carrots and 1/3 C. frozen corn, and put it in the slow cooker on high for the afternoon. Yum! My preschoolers will eat it with the written amount of spice, but my husband adds hot sauce and red pepper powder to his bowl to kick it up some. I also add seasoned salt, black pepper, and a three or four good shakes of the worchestshire sauce to the ground turkey and onion as they cook.

Michelle's Peanut Butter Dots

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
These were fantastic! I made them for a friend who's son is allergic to eggs. I kept some for my family and even after a few days in a ziploc bag they were still good -- moist and full of flavor. I did have to back them about 15 minutes on a non-stick pan.

Stove Top Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
It was a nice change of pace rather than roasting in the oven or the slow cooker. I added boullion to the water, as well as worcestshire sauce, red wine, and a small can of tomato paste. I didn't even have to thicken the sauce since it was thick enough after cooking down the meat. My 3.25 lb. roast took about 1.5 hours to cook with the lid partially on, then another 30 minutes for the carrots and potatoes (the store didn't have any turnips). We really enjoyed it, and are looking forward to open face sandwiches and gravy tomorrow!

Easy One-Step Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Very easy way to make pasta in sauce... one less step! No need to drain, so one less dish to wash! I usually use a 26 oz jar of sauce with 1 lb of pasta, so I added an additional cup of water to the sauce (for a total of 3 cups), brought that to a boil, then added a whole box of pasta spirals.

Easy Skillet Supper

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
As the other reviewers did, I cooked my ground beef first, then added the other ingredients. I didn't have any cream of mushroom soup, so I first used condensed tomato bisque (like tomato soup, but with bits of tomato in it). It didn't look it was going to be enough sauce, so I added half a can of cream of onion, plus a half can of water and that was the perfect amount. I did half potatoes/half carrots (for color and nutrition). Because I used the cream of onion soup I didn't use an chopped or minced onion. I added about a Tbsp. minced garlic, several good dashes of worcestschire sauce, and about a 1 1/2 tsp. thyme. I sprinkled some sharp cheddar cheese on the top, too. My family loved it... especially my husband -- he went back for more! (He likes his with cayenne pepper on top.)
