Cavatini II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
This was sooo good!!- although I think that I may have done it wrong! I only used 1/2 of the sauce mixture- and that seemed like way too much until I baked it. Now I have enough to make it again!! I froze the other 1/2 and it will be perfect for dinner in a bind. I did use sweet Italian turkey sausage instead of the pepperoni. This will become a regular in my house!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
My big plans to this on the grill were spoiled by rain, but it was still great from the oven. I did two, side by side in a foil lined roasting pan. I rubbed the skin with the seasonings and then brushed on the butter. It took about 1 hour 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Everyone loved it- we ate one for dinner and the other will be great in a chicken salad for lunch today. Thanks for this! The chickens stood fine without a fancy holder- I was a little worried that I didn't have one. Very easy and soso yummy!

Shrimp and Mushroom Linguini with Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
This tastes exactly like my husband's favorite dish at our local Creole style resturant! I just served it to him for his birthday and the first thing out of his mouth was "FISHBONE'S!" I doubled the garlic, used 5 oz. of cream cheese, used lots of shrimp and mushrooms and added a bunch of asparagus. I also used milk instead of water. It was rich, but very delicious! Oh- and sooooo easy! It took longer to boil the pasta than make the sauce! THANK YOU!

Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
MAKE THIS RECIPE!!! DO NOT CHANGE A THING!!! I made this for my mom for Mother's Day and OMG these are the absolute best ribs you will ever taste! I was nervous because I don't grill or even really eat pork, but this was so easy and sooooo good! My husband was nevervous about baking them so long- he thought they would be too dry. But when we put them on the grill, the meat was almost falling off the bones. I bought 6 1/2 lbs. and there was still enough sauce for probably another 4 lbs. DO NOT PASS THIS RECIPE UP- IT IS THE BEST!!!

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
This was right up my husbands alley- creamy, flakey, pastry-y. I used less butter, a cup of shredded parmesan, and a cup of frozen chopped broccoli that I microwaved and drained well. I will make this again for sure, but I may try to figure out a way to use puff pastry instead. The crescent rolls are a bit heavy. Also, I will used cooked chicken, maybe rottisere. But this was sooo delicious!!

Simple, Classic Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Wow- this is excellent. My family devoured it- and there is another one sitting in the freezer! The only thing that I changed was that I used a mix of carrots, peas, corn and green beans. Also, I skipped the celery and onion. This is a keeper!

Kids Favorite Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
This was excellent! I made several changes- I used 1lb of beef, 1/4lb of pork and 1/4lb of turkey, I added a bit of cumin, used lots of garlic powder, no onion powder and breadcrumbs instead of the cereal. I put the loaves in a muffin pan- I was able to make 10, and in 5 I put fresh chopped sweet onion for my son and I. I only baked them for about 45 minutes, glazed them and baked for another 10. They were a HIT! Even my son, who I can't force feed any kind of meat, loved this! My husband said next time I should make extra glaze for dipping, and I think that's a great idea- the glaze tastes fabulous! THANK YOU for a great meatloaf recipe!

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
When I printed this out, I didn't notice that the recipe didn't call for capers or mushrooms. So, I pounded my breasts REALLY thin, added way more fresh lemon, and put in the capers and fresh sliced mushrooms in during the simmer. Yum. Next time I will double the sauce. I served it with lemon wedges (my hubby LOVES lemon!) and fettucine. Defintately a new regular for my family!

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
I made this for a crowd to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I doubled the recipe and they were still scraping the crock pot for more! I left out the onion, added a bit more beef, left out one can of kidney beans (one without liquid). It was delicious! I served it with sour cream, shredded cheese and corn bread. Definately my new chili recipe!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
This is a great base recipe. Next time I will add some sauted mushrooms and maybe some zucchini. Also, it seemed that my sour cream curdled. It tasted good, but my ever-wary 5 year old was skeptical. Everyone liked it.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This was a great easy recipe that my picky kids loved. I added some garlic powder, poultry seasoning, and fresh ground black pepper to the breadcrumbs. This will become a regular!

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This was very tasty and everyone loved it. There were two things that no one was prepared for- the color and consistancy was that of pate. We weren't sure if it was cooked too long or pulled too much. Either way, it was delicious and there was not much leftover. We used pork loin instead of butt roast, a 1/2 c. of coffee and seasoned it with garlic powder and seasoned salt. We also ended up putting the drippings by 1/4 cups into the pork along with the bbq sauce because it seemed so dry. Great for a party (there were 10 of us, we all ate ourselves sick and still had enough for a small lunch the next day!)

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
This was great for a quick summer meal. I substitued the chile paste with some garlic powder and red pepper flakes and it was really yummy! My super picky 5 year old ate her whole bowl! Next time, I will add some sauted veggies, as reccommended by some other reviewers.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
This was really good. I added an extra clove of garlic and not nearly as much olive oil- maybe 1/4 cup. It does need plenty of salt and pepper for my taste, but it was yummy!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
I have to give this 4 stars because my 4 year old ate 1 1/2 breasts! And my husband loved it too. It was a last minute meal- everything was on hand. I served it with buttered egg noodles and sauted green beans. This is a great change up for people who eat a lot of chicken.

Broccoli Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2005
This was really easy (I rushed home with only about an hour to make dinner and managed to make some garlic toast too!) and really good!!! I doubled the broccoli and chicken and added some fresh pressed garlic to the butter when I sauted the chicken. I did have to add another splash or two of milk but it really was excellent. Next time I plan to add some fresh shrimp to the saute.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This was really good, although my kids are still a little wary of Mexican. I made it exactly as stated. Aside from having to cook the chicken, it was incredibly fast. I browned and cut up the chicken in the afternoon while I was making lunch and when it came time to make dinner, I threw it all together in about 15 minutes. I served it with refried beans. Definately a keeper!

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
I'm not sure if they were unbelievable, but they were very tasty indeed. I used frozen pizza dough, my pizza spice grinder instead of the Italian seasoning and 1 1/2 tbs mayo, like another reviewer suggested. I also sauteed some mushrooms in butter and a dash of garlic powder. Brushed the tops with melted butter. I did have a difficult time shaping the pizza dough, so they weren't a beautiful presentation, but delicious anyway! I was able to get 12 calzones out of the filling. Dipped in homemade spaghetti sauce. We will definately be putting this recipes into rotation- my kids LOVED it, my husband loved it and I really enjoyed it too. very easy for a busy night, if you have everything frozen ahead of time.

Broiled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Although my 5 year old and husband loved this, I thought it was just okay. It wasn't sweet or tangy enough, it just tasted like water and ketchup on pork. But, since my daughter ate the entire thing, I have to rate it at least a 3.

Broccoli-Chicken Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
This was a good starter recipe. Next time, I would add more chicken (which I sauted in a little butter with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper) and less broccoli. Also, I would add the cheese in with the soup and chicken. Also, I would try to add a little more flavor to the soup, a little garlic? But, very easy, good, and my kids liked the "cupcake" look of their dinner!
