Lemon BBQ Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
we can't eat rice around here but we can have quinoa so that is the only change in ingredients that I made to this really tasty and oh so satisfying recipe. I have discovered it is important to use flavors you truly enjoy as in a brand of mayo thats good..we like Kraft better than Best Foods or Hellmanns for instance. and same with bbq sauce, we like Trader Joes Spicy alot.. also was careful to use fresh lemon juice I kinda hate the pre squeezed stuff and Farmland Brand Bacon done extra crispy in the oven. I know I sound picky but it makes such a difference! So,mixed the chicken, lemon juice,celery, olives and 1/4c crumbled bacon together and then made the sauce. poured it over all and let it sit overnight in the fridge. Before serving I mixed in the quinoa and the rest of the bacon. I gotta say we LOVED it. I think it would be fun to serve in hollowed out tomatoes but I just dished it out onto lettuce leaves. we had some sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, bread sticks, and a light fruit salad.. used a little lemon yogurt on blueberries, strawberries and grapes. anyway it was an awesome little luncheon.. thanks so much!

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
Did a few things 'my' way but loved the recipe! First: we are doing low carb around here so I went crustless :) second: we always cook our bacon in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes so since we love roasted asparagus and the oven was heated up already I roasted the asparagus for 5 minutes instead of steaming and then cut it into 1/2 inch pieces. Also, as much as I like cream and half 'n half all I had in the house was 2% milk and truly, that worked just fine, evaporated milk would be okay too I bet. Next time I make this I will saute and add finely chopped onions. My daughter would like to see some ham added in with the bacon! Also, I did the whole thing in a pyrex casserole dish instead of pie plates for 38 minutes. Really tasty. Thank you Michele!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Spread a little sauce in the bottom of your dish before you put your rolled up enchiladas in. I didn't think of it and I didn't see anyone suggest it but I sure wish I had. I crammed them in there pretty tight and none of the sauce got to the bottom which made the tortillas kind of dry and tough. I knew I would like it spicier and saucier so I added some red pepper flakes and a 4oz can of chopped jalapenos to the mix and doubled the sauce recipe. It was good! but that no sauce in the bottom was annoying! I hope this will keep you from making the same mistake! Topped them with salsa, shredded lettuce and a sprinkling of fresh chopped green onions, mexi rice, and a can of spicy refried beans warmed up. Very satisfying indeed.

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
We liked diced canned tomatoes in this just fine tho when tomatoes come into season I am sure we will do it that way as well.. We cut the cooked chicken into slices before returning it to the sauce. I wasn't sure if we even liked kalamata olives and apparently we like them best in small doses and chopped very small. We want the flavor to be present but just a little bit is better than a whole half cup at our house :) Used a leftover chardonnay from the fridge and that was a tasty addition. Healthy, flavorful and quick, really a painless way to cut fat and calories. Yay! thanks for posting it!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
we love love love this soup at our house. and we make it exactly as written with great success! however, we tried something new with it today and thought it would be fun to share! it's a great base for CLAM CHOWDER. Omitted the ham, added 4 slices of bacon that had been cooked crisp and chopped. instead of 3 1/4 cups water we used 2 cups water and 1 cup clam juice. Then at the very end added two 8oz cans of minced clams. Oh my.. absolutely deelish. And the beauty of it is it is so quick and easy too! LOVE

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
guess it comes down to whether you are using a bacon you love and a cheese you love. made this exactly as written using medium cheddar tillamook shredded and the bacon from costco that comes already cooked and crumbled. everyone was polite about these.. said um, yes, they were okay but no one really ate them tho :( two days later I chopped it all up, added some green onion, relish, chopped olives, s&p and made a sandwich filling.. which was inhaled.. lol . ... so.. there you go. It is true and a good tip that if you use eggs that you have bought a few days ahead to boil, they are SO much easier to peel.

Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
had to add some bread crumbs and put the mixture in the fridge for a while to firm the meat up but these meatballs were a big hit at our house. We'll definitely make them again! lots of good flavor there :)

Grandma's Heavenly Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I always try the recipe 'as written' before presuming to review it. This was really good.. well received by myelf, my husband and grown son. It was a very satisfying side dish with our pork roast. The next time I made it I tweaked it..with... sourdough bread instead of italian, 3 sweet onions and 1 large red onion, 1/2 provolone and 1/2 swiss for the cheese..plus 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper, 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme and a splash of balsamic vinegar in the soup mixture. It was extremely good too. Different 'notes' to experience between the two versions. Loved them both. Still have not found my perfect tear free way of dealing with the onions tho. Anyway, great recipe! Thanks so much :)

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
Oh .. a word of warning. These are some highly addictive cookies. We are small business owners who usually give out approx 50 boxes of chocolates to special customers each year. As the economy has spiraled we still wanted to acknowledge our friends but couldn't really see spending the money this year. So! Decided to give cookies :) What an incredible hit these have been. Two comments I would make are... you can't blend butter and egg 'until fluffy' as the instructions indicate but it really doesn't matter. We just mixed the egg, softened butter and vanilla well and then added the dry ingredients. These are magnificent tasting cookies. Secondly, if you are giving out alot you might as well just include the recipe with... I have gotten request after request for the recipe. Along those lines too.. I think if you have concerns over whether folks have nut allergies and the like this way they can see all the ingredients. (It would be a shame to leave the nuts out if you didn't 'have' to in my humble opinion) So, enjoy these, they ARE fabulous and don't leave me alone in the kitchen with 'em

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
I had some leftover chicken from a rotisserie chicken we'd bought at the grocery store and believe it or not we had made cornish game hens that had some leftover meat as well so I was looking for a recipe that I could use that up in. This worked out great and even better was that I had all the other ingredients on hand! Only thing I didn't have was the chili beans..so used about 1/2 cup drained canned pinto beans. Just wonderful. Really recommend using crushed tortilla chips on top, we all the loved the crunch (left out two of the tortillas)! This was easy, quick, filling and tasty too!

Filipino Lumpia

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
These were a great hit at our daughter's graduation party this past weekend. I had tried making them a couple weeks ago just as a trial run to make sure I could do it and while it did seem kind of tedious and time consuming rolling them it was SO worth it for the enthusiasm everyone devoured them with. Of course even when it's good I have to tweak things for the fun of it and the second recipe we tossed in 1/2c finely chopped russet potato with the vegetables careful that we didn't let them get overcooked. Then, also, at the end added about 2/3c frozen peas that just cooked as much as the heat left in the mixture would do and they were perfect. I think I liked the second recipe more but hey...either way was totally wonderful. We did kind of a luau/asian menu for the party and these were THE hit! Really nummy.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
Yummo. Just a few nuts and some green beans and yet somehow seems so special. We totally loved this and I know we'll be making it again and again. I do think it was key that the nuts were really toasty so don't skip on that! Thanks for the recipe Tina :)

Asian Chicken Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
my oh my! I had NO idea I would like uncooked bok choy so much! This recipe is just perfect as it stands (is that really me saying that?? lol) Toasting the noodles, sunflower seeds and pine nuts was inspired! I considered spraying them with butter flavored nonstick spray but didn't do it (this time). There are lots of variations that would be fine with this salad, using left over bbq pork, or sugar snap peas instead of the snow peas, adding a few bean sprouts, or some shredded carrot or as other reviewers have done substituting cabbage. I made sure to use fresh lemon in the dressing because it makes such a difference in the brightness of it. All I can say is YUM. Now I'm wishing I would have doubled the recipe because they practically licked the bowl haha

Old-World Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
Fantastic. Do want to try adding some kind of protein, maybe kielbasa or cooked ground turkey. Truly believe if you can make it the day before and be patient enough to wait overnight the flavors will reward you! Added stewed tomatos instead of just diced canned as well as the garlic, black pepper and tabasco suggested by other reviewers. We had soup and grilled cheese sandwiches and it was very very satisfying. Thanks for the recipe.

Chiles Rellenos Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
Really good! Spent a few minutes to roast the poblanos in the oven. Used the 'let it sit for a few minutes in a bag' trick and everybody raved about how yummy this dish was! Did the entire recipe as written with only one exception. Topped it with a bit of reserved shredded cheese instead of salsa and served the salsa on the side. Absolutely fabulous. Thanks so much!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
not exactly my cuppa tea after all.. but I must say I enjoyed it more the second day than the first. Too much wine flavor,not enough garlic, the sauce was too thin(for my own sake I should have thickened it but I didn't). Ah, well.. I'll keep looking :)
