Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2005
I made this recipe last night and was very impressed. They looked and tasted just like restaurant enchiladas. My husband loved them as well. Definitely a keeper! UPDATE!!!!!! I made these again last night, but marinated the chicken in mojo first. It was really good. But, that added enough spice that I could have decreased some of the other spices as well. But, turned out perfect as always!!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
Not as flavorful as I would have hoped. I may try this recipe again, but let the garlic/olive oil soak into the chicken to give it more flavor

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2005
Very good side dish. I've never made my own rice, and it is tons better than any box I've had. Will definitely make again. However, although I halved the recipe (to make 2 servings), it still made too much for my husband and I to finish. Look forward to lunch tomorrow though!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
This is a great recipe! The first time I made this, I gave it 3 stars because the oregano taste was too strong-MY FAULT!!! It turns out that 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs is the same as 1 teaspoon dried herbs!!! I'm so glad I figured it out, since this is so yummy and healthy!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
Very good recipe. I especially liked the au jus. It was perfect for dipping the sandwich and the fries. In addition, I added provolone cheese and put it in the oven to melt. The cheese tasted great with the meat.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2005
Very yummy dish. We really enjoyed all the cheeses, and it made for a great Italian dinner night served with garlic bread and a green salad.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
Very yummy recipe for chicken noodle soup. I do add a lot more carrots and celery than the recipe calls for, since those are key to a good soup. I have made this several times, and freeze leftovers for those "under the weather" days. I was contemplating making this in the crock pot next time, but after letting the soup simmer for a few hours on the stove, the veggies were a little too soft, so I will probably continue (over and over) to make this the traditional way since we like firmer veggies. But, this soup is wonderful!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
The roast is very good, and the gravy is AMAZING! I thicken up the gravy with a little flour. I also use 1 C beef broth and 1/4 C red wine instead of water for a 5 LB cut. It makes it so much more juicy and flavorful than water. I also throw some veggies in there too. My favorite roast recipe!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
I have made this several times now, and have found two main factors that make the difference between this being a 3* and a 5* meal. 1. Use at least 2 or 3 tortillas thick per layer. Otherwise, it gets soggy and mushy. 2. Let the meat simmer with the sauce at least 30 minutes, otherwise it does not meld together. This is a great recipe all in all, though, and I always look forward to making it. It is also a great freezer-to-oven meal. Simply take it out of the freezer and cook it at 350 for 40-50 minutes, or until bubbly. I always divide a full batch into several 11X7 pans, so I can freeze a couple for future meals. VERY IMPORTANT: I FREEZE IN A FOIL PAN...IF YOU FREEZE IN A GLASS PAN, YOU CAN'T PUT IT STRAIGHT INTO THE OVEN, OR ELSE THE GLASS WILL SHATTER. DEFROST IT FIRST.

Baked Havarti Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
Being a relatively new cook, I usually try to stay away from the "gourmet" meals, but this one turned out well. My husband suggested I make it for his parents when they come to visit! Served with rice. Very good, thanks!

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
Very yummy, very flavorful. A great recipe. But, a little too creamy for us. It was hard to eat a complete serving, and made us very full. But, overall I was really impressed.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
This was pretty good, but, I did not think it was anything amazing. My husband really liked it, but I didn't think the flavor was any different than our usual chicken dishes.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
Wow! These are awesome muffins. It's a little slice of heaven. I took some advice, and added a teaspoon of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinammon. Also added some nuts. Delicious! Thank you Abi!

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
This was really good. Hubby doesn't like tomatoes, so I had to make it with regular Feta. Will probably use the Basil Feta next time to add a little more flavor. Made with Wild Rice Casserole (also from this site) and green beans. Yummy!

Wild Rice Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
Great side dish. My husband raved about it. Next time I might use cheddar cheese instead to give it that extra kick. But, I will definitely be making this again.

Pasta e Fagioli II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2006
This is a great soup. This has been a favorite each time I've made it. Although, one box of pasta is definitely too much. We only use about 1/3 of the box when we make the full recipe and it turns out perfectly.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I really like this recipe, it is so easy too! We usually cook the chicken, then cut it into strips for burritos. But, if you are planning on doing that, I would suggest cutting the chicken up before you cook it, then putting a sprinkle of taco/burrito seasoning on each strip, and covering with salsa. It ensures that every bite of chicken is full of flavor!
