Chicken Spaghetti Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
When I first read the review, I thought, how odd that men seem to like this dish. But, in my case, it proved to be true too. My husband loved it! Modifications: I added some sliced mushrooms and sauteed with the green peppers and onion before adding to chicken/spaghetti mixture. Added extra can of cream of mushroom soup based on other reviews saying too dry. I added all of the cheddar cheese to mixture and for the topping I made a crushed cornflake/parmesan cheese mixture that I only exposed during last 15 minutes of cooking (kept covered under foil until then). Definitely will remake!

Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
So easy and yummy. I used the reduced fat crescent rolls & sprinkled more cheese over the top along with the bacon. It's a great finger food to have for a brunch!

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
I used leftover chicken breast torn into bite sized pieces . And, I sauteed the onion in olive oil, then added spices, then chicken. I moved it all to a stockpot where I combined all the remaining ingredients and tossed in a dash of hot sauce. Maybe we're big eaters, but this just made enough for my husband and I. Next time he asked me to double the recipe for leftovers. He thought it was that good!

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
I thought this was a really flavorful burger. I only used a 1/2 piece of bacon (because I burnt the rest chasing my 14-month old)-still really picked up the bacon flavor. Definitely give it a try when you're in the burger mood.

Stir-Fried Shrimp with Snow Peas and Ginger

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
Super easy and most of the ingredients are on hand. I doubled the sauce (a must in my opinion) and used dry sherry in place of rice wine. Also, since I didn't have fresh ginger on hand, I just used ground ginger from my spice drawer. I realized after making this that I used sugar snap peas instead of snow peas-still yummy. Served over brown rice.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
My husband loved this. He said it was like a healthy version of lasagne. I won't mention the 1/4 cup of butter or the 1/2 & 1/2. Still, we did enjoy this and since it was just the 2 of us, it was good for dinner 2 nights in a row. I served it on top of Royal Blend's Texmati white, brown, wild & red rice.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
There's no need to keep looking around for an apple pie recipe. This one is delicious. I modified it slightly based on other reviews. Use 6 apples (instead of 8) and you'll have plenty. Instead of pouring the sauce on top of the pie crust, I just mixed it in with the apples. Additionally, I added 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg and 1 tsp. vanilla to apples. To make my life easier, I used the Pilsbury ready-made pie crust and I didn't do the lattice top. Instead, I just made slits in the pie crust, brushed a thin coating of milk over the top and sprinkled with sugar. Don't forget to put a cookie sheet under the pie dish when baking--it will overflow! Lastly, I thought my apples turned out perfectly extending the cooking time at 350 to 50 minutes. Please enjoy this recipe!!!

Brussels Sprouts with Pecans

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
I'm always looking for ways to make brussel sprouts an appealing vegetable. This absolutely does it. I used olive oil in place of butter and skipped the pecans b/c I didn't have any on hand and it was absolutely delicious. Thinly slicing the brussel sprouts is key. It disguises their mini-cabbage look.

Stuffed Chicken Valentino

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
I thought this looked really great, but I have to admit I was disappointed with the taste. While the chicken was moist, I felt like it needed more flavor. Serving some sort of cream sauce along with this is one idea. Playing with the seasonings and fillings is one other. For now, I think I'll just experiment with other chicken dishes out there.

Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
I thought these were really delicious. To make it a bit healthier, I used half & half in place of the heavy cream. I did a mix of yukon gold & red potatoes & I too included skins-easier & in my opinion tastier. For color, I sprinkled parsley on top.

Pasta and Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
After reading the instructions on this dish, I thought it needed a little something more. I added italian seasoning while simmering, dropped in some spinach leaves once the simmering was complete (they wilt almost immediately w/ heat) & I included a few tablespoons pasta water (a tip I always see mentioned on the cooking shows). I thought it was tasty and will likely make again.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
Mmmmm good. I would absolutely serve this salad for company. It just takes a little extra time to carmelize the pecans, but so worth it. This salad has creamy & crunchy-right up my alley!

Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
Definitely a summer dish. To look like a real gourmet, I used my microplane grater to put fresh parmesean on top just before serving.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
Great flavor. Moist chicken. Lined baking sheet with foil sprayed with Olive Oil Pam based on other reviews. Add more shredded cheddar the last 5 minutes of cook time for gooey top. Yum!

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
Cut the lemon juice in 1/2 & toasted the almonds. Glad to try something new with broccoli but it didn't blow me away.

Seasonal Orchard Salad and Balsamic Vinaigrette with Apples and Bleu Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I only had fuji apples on hand and I was out of garlic, so I substituted McCormick garlic pepper blend seasoning (included garlic, black pepper, green & red peppers, onion & brown sugar) for garlic and pepper in recipe. Still turned out delicious!

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
I definitely thought this was good, but not outstanding. I think I made a mistake on the seasoning. I substituted Italian Seasoning for all the listed seasonings (including salt) and I think it needed the salt. To get in more veggies, I added spinach and sliced mushrooms. To make my life easier, I used the Barilla no cook noodles.

Chicken Pot Pie IV

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
What a great way to use up vegetables! I used a Pilsbury pie crust and thought it was delicious. Added 1 baked potato (peeled & cubed) & 1 stalk of chopped celery. Cooked at 350 for 60 minutes. My husband was working late so I kept his portion warm in the oven at 200. Can't wait to make this on a cool evening in the fall!

BBQ Chicken Pizza II

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2006
Delicious! I used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce and topped with chunks of chicken (I prefer this over diced), veggies sauteed in olive oil & a monterey jack cheese blend. A keeper!
