Cherry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
I made quite a few changes to this, following some of the others recommendations, and it still needed more work than what I did. It was a good starting point I guess, but if prepared as specified, I think I would have been VERY unhappy with the results. first, I halved the butter called for, and found it to still be too much. I cut back on the sugar and it was still a little too sweet (and I used fresh cherries so no added sugar there). Putting it in a 9x9 was absolutely necessary; it would have been pancake thin in a 9x13. I added a healthy dash of cinnamon and allspice to the batter and it was very nice; I think if I hadn't done this it would have been pretty bland. So... this recipe can be a success only if you follow everyone else's advice about it. as is, no way.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
I LOVED this recipe. I didn't have asparagus or green beans, so I just omitted it and upped the other veggies. I like that this recipe lends itself easily to that flexibility. Sooo good. I'm not a big fan of cream sauces, which tend to be so heavy. I added a little bit more vinegar than called for (because I looooove balsalmic vinegar). Quick, easy, healthy, filling, and DELICIOUS... Could you want any more from any recipe??

Baked Fish Dinner For Two

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
I was so looking forward to this meal, but it just didn't deliver. normally I don't season my food much, especially vegetables. I like to enjoy the "natural goodness" of them. but this might've gone a little too far. with the only seasoning being a little salt and pepper on the potatoes, and some garlic... It just really lacked umph. The vegetables all turned out well. After reading other reviews, I cooked the potatoes alone a little longer, and cut the zucchini a little thick and put it in a few minutes after all the other veggies. This seemed to work. Next time, if there is one, I will season the fish first, as it did not take on any flavor.

Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
I thought this had good flavor but a little too buttery. Will try it again and cut back a bit on the butter.

Texas Beef Soup

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
I thought this was pretty good. I also used frozen mixed vegetables instead of canned. I think if you had salty soup, reconsider the broth you are using. I ALWAYS use "Better than Buillon" which I find to be significantly less salty than most broths and certainly better than any buillon (which always have lots of salt and MSG).

Cheesy Catfish

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
I was hopeful about this, but it fell short. The flavors just didn't go well together at all. It wasn't AWFUL but I will most likely not make it again.

Pineapple Cranberry Chicken

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
I halved this recipe. I also seared the breasts and applied cinnamon directly to the chicken as well, although I added a dusting of nutmeg also which I think gave it a nice background flavor. The flavor is VERY good but doesn't seem to permeate the chicken, so I agree that it might be better as a slow cooker recipe. I'll probably play around with it. Thanks for a great idea and a tasty easy dinner

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
This chicken was SO good! We added just a couple chunks of ginger which really gave it a kick. I was a little apprehensive about the combination of soy and tomato but was I ever pleasantly surprised!! So delicious and the sauce, though runny, stuck to the rice and tasted just wonderfully. I used chicken breasts and cooked on high for about 4 hours and it was tender and delicious. We'll definitely be making this again!

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
I thought this chicken was really easy to prepare and turned out really well. I used chicken breasts, so I cut back cooking time a bit, and followed the advice of others and replaced about half of the white vinegar with red wine vinegar. The results were great and went well with rice. Everyone enjoyed it and leftovers were just as good.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
This recipe has a very good flavor and always turns out well. I always use mozarella over the top out of preference. Make sure you use a big enough pan to do all the breasts at once, or the bread crumbs that drop off of the first will start to burn as you are cooking other batches.

Amish Yumazuti

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
Everyone loved this recipe, and leftovers were quite good. The only change i made was the addition of diced green bell pepper, about 1/3 of one (had it on hand and wanted to get it used up.) i think it was a nice addition and shows the flexibility of this recipe. I did cover mine about halfway through when the top noodles started to brown up a bit, which i like but didn't want them to burn. i didn't find it like hamburger helper at all, which is what i was expected when i read the ingredients. it didn't say to drain the tomatoes so i didn't and all the liquid got absorbed during baking and gave it a nice flavor throughout. i did try the layering. i didn't find it hard, but a bit unnecessary. Wish i'd used more cheese. this was very tasty and i will certainly make it again

Beefy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I read a lot of the reviews before making this. I made some changes, with good results. I cut back the ketchup to a few tablespoons after reading that it made the dish too sweet. also, i added cilantro, ground cumin, ground coriander, and grill seasoning. i also used a can of diced tomatoes and omitted a good portion of the water since there was so much liquid. i will probably make this again, keeping these changes.

Chicken in Every Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
I did make a few changes to this recipe. I used a bag of frozen peas and diced carrots so i wouldn't have to chop carrots. On top of those I added sauteed celery, boiled diced potatoes, and canned corn (any vegetables i could get my hands on, basically). Instead of cream of mushroom soup, which i'm not a fan of, I made a gravy out of chicken stock, butter, and flour (which i'll venture was healthier than canned cream soup). all in all though, I stuck with the basic feel of the recipe with great results. I really loved the top crust, the biscuit mix was fluffy and delicious-i love the addition of celery seed!

Cornbread Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
I really loved this stuffing; very unusual and unexpectedly delicious. I was very uncertain how it would turn out but was pleasantly surprised. I think I will make the stuffing alone as a side, as it stood out to me more than the chicken.

Chicken Honey Nut Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
This was SO GOOD!! Absolutely the best stir fry recipe I have tried yet. The only changes I made were the addition of peas (next time will probably add broccoli, snow peas, etc.) and i didn't have cashews so i toasted some almond slivers and sesame seeds and i think they were a fine substitution. i added a litle more ginger than called for. I thought the blend of flavors in the sauce was just outstanding and everyone said it smelled and tasted fabulously. very good recipe, only change i would make would be the addition of more vegetables.

Lemon Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
I didn't measure the lemon juice or zest or the lime zest. I just grated as much zest as I could off of each and squeezed the juice from half the lemon. I was so apprehensive about the combination of the beef with the citrus, but was so intrigued, I decided to give it a go. So glad I did! This was very good and went well with baked parmesan chicken. Everyone liked it very much.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
This was my first foray into portobellos. I'd heard they didn't have a strong mushroom taste (I don't care for mushrooms) and that they were a good meat substitute. They really shine in this recipe. I love balsalmic vinegar and was so excited about making this, and it was everything I hoped for. The provolone was nice on top.

Italian Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
These were pretty good but not great. The flavor just seemed to lack something. I added more spices and it still wasn't enough. Not sure what would give these the kick I was hoping for, but the recipe as is falls a little short.
