Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
This is good. I doubled the seasoning to get more bite of it, which worked good for me. I also added a can of diced tomatoes. I'm rating this a 5 because I think for those who don't want it as spicy would find the original recipes to be just fine. Oh yeah, I did just throw everything into the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours and shredded the chicken when it was done. Very easy and very good.

Sauce Rosee

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I had a craving for tortellini in rosee sauce with sausage after having it at a local restaurant. This recipe did not disappoint! I browned the sausage in the olive oil and herb mixture, then removed the sausage and added the wine to let it reduce for a bit. I then followed the recipe, adding my cut up sausage before the cream after having let them sit for a bit to let the juices settle. I used a mixture of sweet and hot italian sausage. This was the best pasta dish I've made at home ever and will be my go to meal. It's easy, not too expensive to prepare, and very tasty.

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
This is a good quick meal to make. Not as good as "real" chicken & dumplings of course, but definitely very tasty, especially compared to the ease of preparation. I did boil my chicken in chicken broth with poultry seasoning, a little terragon, garlic, celery, and onion and I used one can of cream of chicken & one can of cream of celery, but I think even as stated, the dish would be quite delicious. I will definitely keep this recipe for quick comfort food meals.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I'm rating this even though I omitted the apple and cranberries. I've made this a few times now and love it every time. The measurements of the ingredients were a very good start, although I don't measure anymore after making the dish the first time. This recipe is very good as I made it, and is a great start for tweaking, as I do now as I make it more.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This dish is simply awesome. I do add bread crumbs for texture and season my fish first with onion powder, pepper and either seasoned salt, old bay, or cajun seasoning depending on what I feel like having that day. I use less mayo and sometimes omit the lemon juice when I don't have any on hand. I love this because it is quick and seriously good. Even my picky fiance will eat it occasionally (he's not a cheese or mayo fan). I made it once for my soon-to-be in-laws and they absolutely loved it. Its like a restaurant meal made cheap and quickly at home!

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
The first time I made garlic mashed potatoes, I used a recipe from this site that involved roasting the garlic. It was a lot of work (chopping garlic, roasting in oven, be careful not to burn it, etc) compared to this recipe, and didn't taste as good to boot. I make these potatoes for a large group for steak night and every one devours them. There's no need to finely chop the garlic, and you can leave the skins on, making the prep for this so quick. I do add more garlic (probably double) and I also use more butter to taste. Sometimes I also a little garlic powder for even more garlic taste. Salt & pepper to taste. Try subbing some of the milk for cream, and don't forget to heat the milk and butter in the sauce pan before adding the potatoes to mash.

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I followed the recipe, but also seasoned the meat the night before using montreal steak seasoning, season salt, and onion the night before. Added beef broth and mushroom soup the next morning and slow cooked for 9 hours. Roast came out really good. My nephew raved about the gravy! It may have been a little salty (i can never tell), but I also used regular cream of mushroom soup instead of the low sodium healthy choice kind i usually use. Next time I will definitely use a lower sodium soup and ease up on the seasoning on the meat. This was my first roast cooking experience and it came out very good. thanks for a good recipe.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Made this tonight for my husband and our friend. Husband doesn't like corn dogs so he doesn't count. My friend raved that it tastes just like a "real" corn dog. I thought it was delicious. Use a glass to hold the batter for dipping the hot dogs. If your oil isn't hot enough, the batter will come off. If it's too hot, they will burn. There's no secret to getting the batter to stick, just get your oil temperature right and be sure to dry the hot dogs well. Next time I may try grilling the hot dogs first just because I do like a grilled hot dog so much better. I'm not interested in authentic, I'm interested in what tastes good and what tastes good to me are grilled hot dogs.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
After learning from my first attempt, I believe I've got the tricks for this recipe. I took tips from myself and other reviews as follows: 1.) season chicken, but watch the salt since the sauce has soy sauce 2.) add 2 tbsp cornstarch and boil sauce on stovetop until thick 3.) cover chicken and cook 45 mins @ 375 4.) uncover and cook for 15 more mins. This came out REALLY good for me. The chicken was tender but not dry and the wings were truly "sticky." The sauce was stuck to them and it was O SO GOOD. You won't be disappointed.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
I never knew french toast was this easy to make. Boyfriend always made it just with egg and it was never sweet, so I just stuck to ordering it a restaurant. I made this with thick texas toast and it was just simply delicious. Next time, I will cut back on the vanilla extract and will definitely garnish it with powdered sugar. I will also cook on lower heat and for longer and possibly with a lid, as I too had somewhat soggy french toast. If the fire is too hot, the outside will brown/burn before the inside is done.

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I served this on Christmas with crackers and tortilla chips as something to munch on through the day. My entire family loved it! I did substitute blue cheese for the ranch dressing. I used less cream cheese and doubled the chicken for a meatier dip. Next time I will use more Hot Sauce. It was just right for the mild ones in my family, but my newphew and I would have liked it much hotter. Will make this again and again its so easy and tasty!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Good, easy recipe. I used "Hot Chili" seasoning, medium salsa, 1/2 can dark kidney beans, 1/2 can of black beans. I slowcooked on low for 3.5 hours and served for dinner the next day (reheated in slow cooker). It was very tasty. Garnished with cheese and sourcream and cornbread on the side. Boyfriend and I both thought it was delicious, especially compared to ease of prep. Will possibly use more tomato sauce, and probably add some chili powder for more seasoning. Will also use hot salsa instead of medium, as it wasn't very "alarming" at all.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This dressing is on point! I DID use the amount of salt called for in the recipe because I did NOT use garlic salt or celery salt but instead garlic powder and celery seed. I can easily see omitting the 2 tbsp of salt if using the other ingredients as called for. My husband isn't a big salad lover but he really liked this dressing. I'm not much of an italian dressing fan at all and even I liked this. I will definitely be using this simple recipe again instead of something out of a bottle.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
This was different and good. Normally silent hubby said, "I like the flavor." He's stingy with the stars though, giving it a 3.5 (no recipe EVER gets a 5). I thought it was very good, especially for a different way to have chicken breasts. I did substitute chicken broth for the water and omitted the salt. I also used petite diced tomatoes, as I had no stewed tomatoes on hand. I halved the butter and instead used non-stick spray to coat the pan. This worked out just fine for browning the breasts. Lastly, about halfway through cooking, I felt the sauce was too thin so I added a half a can of tomato sauce (about 7.5 oz). I made this again last night, the same way as before except this time I added onion and red pepper. I sauteed them in the butter before browning the breasts. Very delicious.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I followed the recommendations and doubled the gravy and added pepper and a half a packet of onion soup. I also sauteed my onions and garlic and browned my stew meat before putting into the crockpot and I substituted beef broth for the water. I kept the cream cheese and worcestershire sauce amounts the same. I don't know why, but my crockpot seemed to cook as if it were on high instead of low, so my gravy kept sticking to the sides of the pot (burning) and meat got so tender it began to break up in the gravy. This was still good and I definitely will make it again, but I'm only giving 4 stars because I think it needs more liquid. The consistency was a little off in my opinion, but the taste was really good. Also be careful with adding the soup mix and subbing broth for the water--it can get salty. Next time I probably will not use the soup mix since I used fresh onions anyway.

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This tasted just ok, but I'm going to rate it a 4 because its easy to make and because my boyfriend, who's stingy on stars and only gave it a 3, did say he would eat it again. I added cajun seasoning, paprika, and tripled the amount of chili powder and hot sauce and still found this lacking flavor (although it had plenty of heat!). I will continue to look for a restaurant quality recipe but will keep this one on hand for a quick meal. Oh yeah, I also used only 1 tbsp of corn starch.
