Chicken with Grape Tomatoes and Fried Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
I used this recipe with boneless chicken breasts and I didn't have fresh basil at home BUT it still came out delicious . . . chicken was very tender and juicy, and the sauce tasted great! Thanks for a quick, easy and tasty recipe!

Pork Chops with Sour Cream and Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
This is very easy, quick and tasty! The best part is you can vary the base recipe by adding veggies and spices according to your taste. Taking advice of other reviewers, I first melted buttter in the skillet, added garlic powder, black pepper, sliced fresh mushrooms and a few dashes of white wine and brought to a boil for a couple mintutes. I removed this mix from the skillet and mixed it with the soup and sour cream. I browned the chops in the skillet for only a couple minutes per side (they were thin, boneless chops), then poured the soup/butter/mushroom mixture over the pork and simmered the whole thing for about 20 minutes. Fantastic! I am going to add this recipe to my regular rotation. :)

Tasty 2-Step Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
I like this recipe because it is super easy, quick and tasty! I took the advice of "go away"'s review and I added dried basil, chopped fresh tomatoes, and white wine. I also simmered for longer than the recipe calls for so the chicken comes out very tender. I think those additions really add some flavor to the recipe. Thanks, Campbell's Kitchen and thanks "go away" :)

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
I took the advice of another reviewer and seasoned the steaks, then let them sit out of the fridge for about 20-30 minutes before cooking them. I also doubled the sauce and added a pinch or two of brown sugar to it so it wasn't so overwhelmingly sour. I second the idea of serving the sauce in little cups to go alongside each person's steak serving, so they can use as much or at little as they like. This is a very easy yet delicious recipe. I will definitely make again and again! Thanks Linda W! :)

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I omited the salt and only added 1/2 the cayenne pepper. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Overall the spice rub is very good, and it really adds a lot of flavor to the roast! Thanks, Joel :)

Chicken Pasta II

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
As other reviewers suggested, I used 1/2 red wine vinegar & 1/2 white wine instead of all white wine. I also used 6 roma tomatoes (for 6 servings) instead of 2 large regular tomatoes. I added 1/2 lb of fresh sliced mushrooms & 3 cloves of garlic too. The recipe turned out good, but I thought it would've had more flavor. It took me a long time to cook and crumble all the bacon and the resulting taste was weaker than I expected. But overall a good recipe that can be easily tweaked to your own liking. :)

Easy Coq Au Vin

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I marinated the chicken in wine, chicken stock, garlic, bay leaves, and some Italian seasoning and S&P for a couple hours before sauteeing & simmering (as another reviewer suggested). I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty the resulting recipe was! Thanks, Marlise! :)

Belgian Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I was pretty excited to try out this recipe, as I live in Belgium and have had many delicious stews in restaurants & cafes here. But after I made this I was kind of disappointed. I followed the original recipe exactly. The hosue smelled very good while everything was cooking, but the stew itself seemed to lack alot of flavor, and the flavors that were mixed together didn't seem to go very well, definitely not like any of the stews I've had here. I noticed some of the other reviewers made alot of changes to the orig. recipe, maybe next time I will try some of their suggestions.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
YUM! I love the blend of flavors in this recipe. The feta and pesto make the pizza much more flavorful than the usual tomato sauce and mozz cheese pizzas. You can also be creative with toppings. In addition to the ingredients mentioned, I also used chopped black olives and artichokes, because I love both. Oh and I took the advice of another reviewer and baked the pitas for a few minutes before adding the toppings, to make them a little crispier. Thanks, Heatherbee, for a great recipe!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This recipe was good. I increased the garlic by 4x. I also sauted the garlic in the butter and lemon juice before putting on the fish. My cooking time was much less than 30 mins, more like 15-20. Keep an eye on your fish so you don't overcook it.

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This was REALLY tasty! I thought the amount of spinach was fine (maybe I am a better packer than some?) but I did use 4x the amt of garlic. I added black olives, and used cherry tomatoes for the tomatoes. Thanks, Suki, for a delicious recipe! :)

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This is a great stuffing recipe, I've used it the past 2 years and my sister says this is better than my mom's (and that is BIG!). Just a note, the amount of broth depends on how much bread and what type you use (use less for fresh bread and more for store bought packaged hard bread). I use a mixture of different types of fresh breads (rye, grainy, sourdough, etc.) that I dry out for a couple days beforehand. Also, do not add all the broth at once, keep it handly and add it as needed as the stuffing cooks. I also cook and add 1 lb sage- flavored sausage and then reduce the amt of sage in the recipe by 1/2 or more. Watch your slow cooker timing too, with my cooker (which tends to cook everything faster than called for) I only need to cook the stuffing on high for 45 min, then low for 2-4 hours. This is a delicious recipe, you will not be disappointed! Thanks, Gayle!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This recipe was very very tasty! After I fried the chops in the pan, I added fresh chopped mushrooms and 1 small chopped onion to the pan and fried them too, then added that to the sauce. And make sure to keep an eye on the cooking time, mine was done baking in 40 min total.

Lemony Shrimp over Brown Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly. It was very light and very yummy. I think the trick is using fresh parsley or cilantro.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I have been looking for a good beef bourguignon recipe ever since my husband and I first tried it in a little cafe near Notre Dame in Paris..... and this one comes pretty darn close! Very good and very tasty. Makes the whole house smell nice while cooking too, perfect for a chilly fall or winter day where you crave some comfort food. I followed the recipe to the letter, and the beef came out very tender, juicy and flavorful. Next time I will decrease the canned onions by about 1/2 (a bit too many for my taste), and maybe add some small potatoes to cook along with everything else and soak up that delicious sauce. Will definitely make this one again. Thanks, Teri! :)

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
This was a very good recipe, very tasty. If you want to cut down on calories and fat, decrease the butter and cheese & use lite cream. I did that, and also doubled the pesto & added some dried basil (1-2 tbsps). YUM! Thanks Loreta, for a new shrimp dish!

Smothered Bacon Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Based on some other reviews, I added some fresh mushrooms to the pan before adding soup mixture. In the soup mixture I added minced garlic, salt, pepper, and grated parmesean cheese. This recipe makes a lot of sauce so serve chicken over rice or pasta. This was a good recipe, will make again.

Beer-Boiled Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
I live in Belgium and enjoy any recipe that lets me cook with one of their delicious beers. :) I made this with 1 kg (2 pounds) of shrimp, I used half the butter the recipe called for and 2 beers (1 Leffe blond, 1 Leffe bruin). Bersides the onion and salt, I also added a couple sprinkles of cajun seasoning, 4 cloves of garlic and 4 bay leaves. It is very important to let the shrimp sit for 30 min (or more!) after simmering, it really soaks up all the flavors. Thanks NJMOM for a yummy recipe! :)

Summer Nights Eggplants

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
The original recipe calls for way too much breadcrumbs. I only used about 1/3 the amount called for. I also added ground beef, which I browned while sauteing the onion and garlic. Other than that I followed the recipe as is. Pretty good, with some tweaking :)
