Chicken and Bowtie Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
If I could rate this any higher stars I would. This is surely company fare and while we wont have it often being that its so rich its one I will make again. I added some peas for color and used 1 cup of prosciutto.

Banana Banana Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I would rate this 4 1/2 stars. 3 out of 5 really like it and 2 just dont have a taste for smoothies. I omitted the banana extract, I didnt have it and didnt really care to buy it just for this specific use. It didnt really need it anyways. I served this with banana nut bread off of this site for a nice school day breakfast. I am now the blend master queen according to the kids.

Over the Top Nachos

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Made this with turkey and it was kinda bland so we added 1/2 packet of taco seasoning mix to give it some zest and added the refried beans to the meat mixture for ease. My husband gave it a 5 though I think next time we'll just make it as a dip so the tortilla's dont get soggy. I served with guacamole from this site for a great superbowl snack.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Excellent recipe however next time I will use green or red onions instead. My store was also out of fresh cilantro so 1 used 1tbs of dried and it was great but will be even better with fresh.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
I simmered the chicken and veggies in vegetable broth with a little bit of garlic, also added diced red potatoes. I also doubled the sauce and I was sure glad that I did it would have been WAY to dry without it. Super Yummy the whole family loved it.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
Fantastic. My husband did only use 1 cup red wine and subbed 1 cup of vegetable broth because we were afraid it would be to much wine for the little ones. The gravy was awesome, I used 1 and 1/2 packets brown gravy mix. Served with mashed potatoes and peas.

Black Bottom Cupcakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I used vanilla nut coffee instead of water. They turned out fantastic!!! Made for a school bake sale, the kids think they're great! Please note it is mandatory that these sit covered over night in order to get to their full moist potential. You can try them same night but you will find a hard kinda crunchy mess. Cover and leave them be until the next day and you wont be sorry.

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
"steak seasoning" leaves a lot open personal interpretation. To me its worcestershire sauce and 2 tbs wasn't over doing it at all. Admittedly I did sprinkle them with Montreal Steak before browning. Threw in 1 tbs mustard, 3 tbs brown sugar, 2 tbs honey (since my bbq sauce seemed a little lacking in the flavor department) and replaced the beer with root beer. I used one vidalia and one red onion. All this went into the crock pot on low for 8 hours. As it turned out 6 chops were not enough for 5. My 5 and 8 year old boys ate 2 each asking if I could make it every night. Next time I will use a pork tenderloin and thicken the sauce with a little cornstarch before serving. The sauce was so good its still in the fridge to be served of rice later in the week for leftover and we were all eyeing the bread wanting to grab it to soak up the AMAZING gravy. This would also be great served on buns as pulled pork. YUM-O!!!!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
No one in my family is into dry mac and cheese which by the reviews this seemed to be. Rather than keep looking I just swapped the cottage cheese for 1 can of Campbell's condensed cheese soup and 1/4 cup milk. It kept the same mild undertones as the cottage cheese and didn't make it clumpy, it was creamy, not runny but not dry, perfect. The topping makes WAY to much unless you usually layer a 1/2 in thick crust on top. I cut it to 3/4 breadcrumbs and still only used half. I will try a cracker crumble instead of bread crumbs next time as it was a little too fine for my taste. Served with chicken fried chicken of this site.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I added some extra seasonings, a little extra seasoning salt, garlic powder and paprika. My 8 year old who is only 50 pounds and is a REALLY small eater ate 2 whole chicken breasts and my 2 1/2 yr old ate 1 whole one. Rarely do I see them dig into dinner with such gusto. This will go in the recipe book for future generations for sure! For all who said their meat was tough... pound your chicken breasts out first. As a general rule of thumb always expect them to be tough unless you pound them, you have to break down the membranes that make them tough. And if you batter is falling off in cooking its because you did not dredge your meat in flour before dipping in the egg. If you want any batter to stick to anything ever insert that step into every recipe you batter. If it burns, your cooking it with your oil at to high of a temp, it takes just as much practice to fry chicken as it did at 16 learning to parallel park, if its brown and still not cooked just toss it in the oven at 300-325 to finish, a low heat will keep it moist and allow it to cook through which is probably safer and easier if your using bone in anyways, I petrified of serving raw chicken so I almost always throw whatever chicken I'm making the oven at 300 for a little while and have NEVER over cooked since the heat is low.

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This recipe is incredible. I added cinnamon, had I left it out it would have been sorely missed. My husband made a grab for the syrup until I told him to throttle back and take a bite first. It remained on the table unused. I used frozen blueberries that we had picked this summer but this recipe is so versatile depending on the season and what fresh and available. In July I'll use strawberries and September apples. This is a new breakfast staple for us, easy and company quality I've never seen my kids eat so much for breakfast. Next time though I will double the syrup to drizzle and mix the pecans into it before spreading to sort of candy them and add a touch more cinnamon. All the loyal readers of my reviews need to try this one out! ;)

Doreen's Superbowl Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Not terrible, but just okay. Rather bland, added some mustard and bbq to the stuffing to try to liven up the flavor. A very basic sloppy joe type sandwich... but in this house no one really cares for sloppy joes.

Egg Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
I was not about to throw some bacon bits in with celery soup and call it a day so... I halved the recipe to make 1 pizza, used a pizza crust mix instead of a pre-made crust. REAL maple bacon!!! Omitted the green peppers (just because I was out but next time if I have them I will certainly toss them in) sauteed the onion, of which I used sliced pearl onions. And last but in my opinion the winning change... I made my own white sauce as if I were making Cream chip beef on toast. Heres how to do it: Melt 2tbs butter, over med high heat add 1 cup of milk and 2 heaping tablespoons flour whisk and cook over med heat until thick. Add salt and pepper to taste. Everyone ate it up exclaiming over how good it was. "Much better than the schools breakfast pizza" says the 8 yr old =)

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Great recipe. All my kids ate it up with gusto. I omitted the mushrooms (personal taste combined with not having any). Served with a nice salad, rice and broccoli.

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Nice Change of pace. I would suggest only using half of an onion though. I ended up adding another 1/2 cup of rice to it and it was still a little TOO onion-y.

Tortilla Rollups II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
These were outstanding. I added some Bacon because I had so left over from the broccoli cheese casserole I was making and I added some diced black olives and a nit of taco seasoning. This made a nice lunch time appetizer while we were waiting for the Christmas turkey to finish. My father in law (Mr. meat lover) said more bacon and they would be even better, but the rest of us really enjoyed them as is. Fast and easy when you're short on time. They did only make 6 10 inch tortilla's so plan accordingly.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
My step mother used to make this for me when I was a picky teenager. I've wanted to make it but I kept forgetting to ask her for the recipe. I did have to add A LOT more rice about 1 1/4 cups (dry) more to get it to the casserole consistency I was used to and well as doubling the broccoli. The bacon was a neat idea but its not an addition that has to be added to make this super yummy. It went over well at the christmas table.
