Citrus Cranberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
Anyone who has a garden with zucchini in it understands the need/desire to find new recipes to try! This bread is excellent! Surprisingly, it is not overly sweet (I was slightly concerned about that with 2 cups of sugar), the orange zest lends a nice flavor. The only thing that I did differently was to add a butter/flour/brown sugar topping that was left over from another recipe! The family loved it & I will definitely be making this bread again. I'll probably experiment with different dried fruit and a different topping! May even juice the orange used for zest, poke holes in the bread once it's baked and cooled and poor the juiced orange over it! It seems pretty versatile and I was very surprised that there weren't more reviews! This would be a great choice around the holidays also!

Chinese Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
My family loves this salad! We use the coleslaw mix with carrots, green onions and we double the amounts for the dressing, with the exception of the sugar (we generally use 3 tbls instead of 4 tbls). It seems perfect with double dressing!

Food Processor Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
Very light and not overly sweet. Perfect for our family! Just one comment, though! If you are frosting a 13x9 cake with this recipe, it just barely covers the top with a very thin layer. Either 1 1/2 times the recipe or double the recipe would have been much better.

Chicken Tortilla Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
My family absolutely loved this soup! Going off some of the reviews, I used 6 tbls butter to saute the onions and the garlic and 6 tbls flour to make the soup creamier (just a matter of personal preference), and also used a 15 oz can of tomatoes with green chiles in place of the salsa. In addition, I added a 7 oz can of green chiles. Not sure why there were so many complaints about the color, we did not find it to be the least bit un-appetizing! In fact, my 10 year old son was already making plans to reserve some for his lunch the next day! My 16 year old daughter is a bit pickier, and typically not a fan of soup, but she thought that it was very good also! Thank you, Julie, for a very good recipe to add to our recipe box. We will have this again!

Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
We had this Christmas morning. Only made three changes. My mom is allergic to mushrooms and they make her extremely sick, so had to use a different soup on the top. We finally settled on Cream of Chicken (I know, mix pork from the sausage & chicken??!!), and it was excellent! We also added some onions to the sausage, and a 7 oz. can of diced green chiles. With or without the changes, this is excellent! We will definitely make this again!

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Our family of 4 found this to be quite tasty and there were no leftovers! I followed the directions of another reviewer! To cut back on the amount of pans used, carmelize onions & garlic in butter, add sauces, and I found that I needed to let it simmer on a very low heat for approximately 30 minutes prior to adding chicken. Then simmered another 25-30 minutes to cook the chicken. One added note, I don't know about anyone else's grocery store, but I did not find garam marsala OR tandoori marsala in the ethnic OR the spice aisle of any grocery store in my general area. I found other spices that contained similar ingredients, and that is what I used in place of the garam marsala and the tandoori marsala. Still very good and we will definitely make this again.

Amazing Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
After reading multiple reviews with suggestions, there were minimal things that I changed. I wouldn't feel right about completely changing the recipe, then giving less than 5 stars! The one, awesome tip that I got from some of the reviews was to use the food processor to crush the crackers and the onions. Works like a charm, and I saved so much time by doing it that way! The only things that I changed was left out the sesame seeds from the breading, and used 1 1/2 cups of cheese flavored crackers (we used the Italian 4 cheese), and 1 1/2 cups French-fried onion rings (our family loves onions!), and added garlic powder to the breading. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. My family truly enjoyed this chicken. As an added note, no one in our family is a big fan of mayo, but I still used it. Honestly, we could not taste the mayo. Thank you for a great recipe, Chefbound!

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
We have never eaten Beef and Broccoli that even faintly tasted of sesame. As written, the sesame oil in this recipe over-powers it. I came back to this site to find a recipe with a different sauce that I could add to this one to try to tone down the flavor of the sesame. I used the sauce in the Broccoli Beef 1 recipe, which helped it greatly!! The reason that I rated this recipe 4 stars is because I feel this recipe would be very good without the sesame oil! In addition, the sauce could stand to be doubled or tripled, depending on individual taste.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Yum! I've made this twice now, once following the recipe exactly (but I cooked on low for about 4 hours), the second time, I did not brown the tenderloin, and I doubled the sauce--our family loves sauce! It was outstanding. One additional note: while teriyaki sauce is a bit sweet, the brown sugar does not make this too sweet, it actually lends a very nice flavor.Thank you for sharing this recipe with our family "Stay Home Cook"!

Delicious Shrimp Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
We decided to try this for New Year's Eve celebrations. As other reviewers have mentioned, what turns out to be a pinch over 1 tbls. of salt is WAY to much (and I like salty stuff!). Use onion powder in place of onion salt, and garlic powder in place of garlic salt, then only use about 1 tsp. celery salt, at most! In addition, 3 tbls. of Worcestershire sauce is over-powering to the point that the dip tastes like Worcestershire dip! At most, use 1 tbls. We added an additional can of shrimp to see if we could compensate for the flavor of the Worcestershire sauce with limited success! I truly believe with the reduction in salt and Worcestershire sauce, this dip would be outstanding.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Our family found this to be very bland. We prefer a heartier soup with a little more texture and flavor. It was intended as a main course, perhaps it would be better suited for a side for some other dish.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
A nice twist on the standard biscuits! These are wonderful when following the advice of some of the other reviewers. Our family would have found them to be a bit plain if I hadn't made these few, simple changes. As another reviewer mentioned, I added the garlic powder to the mix (1/2 tsp.), as well as some chives (one tsp) and 2/3 cup of a shredded Mexican Cheese mix. They are also fine, and less greasy without the mixture of butter and garlic after baking. Thank you for a new recipe that our family truly enjoyed, and will continue to utilize for years to come!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This is an awesome recipe! The first time I used this recipe, I tasted the marinade after adding all of the ingredients, and I was very skeptical! So I added more garlic (our family loves garlic!)! The ingredients impart an incredible flavor---even without the extra garlic! Using this marinade, we've had chicken kabobs twice, and boneless chicken breast once, and have not been disappointed. As an additional note (because it annoys me to see this in other reviews), if you do not like one or more of the ingredients in this marinade, don't try it then punish the person who put it here for us to try by giving the recipe a low rating because you didn't like some of the ingredients!

Excellent Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Our family loves this recipe! As the recipe is written, it tastes a bit more like cheese soup with broccoli added to it. Our whole family likes broccoli, so we typically add more than it calls for. So if you're truly looking for a broccoli tasting soup, you can use about double the broccoli that it calls for, and not have too much!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
Our family absolutely loves this soup! It has a wonderful flavor (obviously, if you aren't wild about tomatoes, either don't make it, or make it to your taste), and it's quite easy to add or subtract an ingredient if you feel like experimenting! EVERYONE who has eaten this at our house has asked for the recipe! It also makes a HUGE amount of soup. We freeze what we don't eat, and it makes a great quick meal after soccer or softball practice! Thanks for an awesome recipe Catherine.
