Aimee's Quick Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
We've been making this for a while now and really enjoy it. As is, it's a little heavy on the mustard. I've found that 1 TBS of Dijon per breast is the perfect amount. I use a thick honey/teriyaki 30-minute marinade in place of regular teriyaki sauce. You can find it in the BBQ sauce section at the store. I add a little more teriyaki sauce to the dish as a personal preference. I combine the cheese and bacon before sprinkling on. Bake at 375, 45 mins. To keep the cheese from burning and the chicken moist, I cover the dish with foil and remove about halfway through. Then I use the juices to baste over the top a couple times before it's done. Comes out perfect.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This was suprisingly addictive. My husband isn't even a big fan of shrimp and he mentioned having it again this week. To cut back the fat and calories, I used 'I Can't Believe It's Not Butter' and less of it. Still tasted great! I cut the shrimp into smaller pieces and baked in the mustard/butter mix with some leftover crab meat and chopped asparagus, served over brown rice. So good! Will definitely make again...this week, apparently.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I knew the oven would be fully occupied on Christmas day, so I prepared this on Christmas Eve to have on Christmas morning. We all LOVED it! Even baked the night before and reheated, it was excellent! My father is very, very set in his ways and an extremely tough crowd when it comes to 'new' foods. He kept going back for more! I used 2 cans of the Grands biscuits instead of three regular and it was the perfect amount. It didn't look like it at first glance, but man, how it swells! The only other change I made was to use a bundt pan instead of a tube pan. Laid out some wax paper and flipped it while still hot, as other suggested to let the goo ooze throughout. Delicious! This is seriously one of the easiest and tastiest things ever. I served it with a side of frosting from Clone of a Cinnabon recipe on this site...smearing it on top seemed like it would make it a little too sweet. But the two compliment each other wonderfully. As we speak, I have another in the oven to give to our neighbor for snowblowing our walkway. You won't regret trying this recipe! Note: If you plan to flip your monkey bread after baking, reserve some of the brown sugar mixture and reheat with a little more butter after the bread has finished baking. Pour over the bread to glaze the top and sprinkle with nuts...makes it look at great as it tastes.

Caterpillar Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
This was a little more work than I had bargained for, but it turned out so cute, I can't complain. I made a smaller version of this cake for my son's first birthday and everyone just loved it...the birthday boy in particular. I placed it on large buttercream fondant leaves I'd made from a recipe on this site. I omitted the coconut (don't know if he's allergic yet) and decorated with Fruity Cheerios for spots and mini-marshmallows for eyes. I put extra frosting along the back and spiked it to make 'fur'. If you're no wuss when it comes to putting a little work into your baked goods, this is a fun little cake to tackle.

Dog Food Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
I forgot to make this and refridgerate the night before my son's birthday party. So I threw caution to the wind and made it anyway with about 1 hour to chill and threw it in the microwave for the party. Even tossing it together at the last minute and nuking it, it was still a huge hit. Everyone who tried it asked for the recipe and kept going back for more. I was pretty impressed. Tastes a lot like the Cheeseburger Con Queso at Red Robin. Which is gooood! Only thing I did differently (well, aside from previously mentioned) was increase the cheese and season the beef with some seasoning salt, garlic powder and pepper. I'll definitely be making this again!

Spicy Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This was pretty good and very easy to throw together. Based on other's reviews that it was too spicy, I halved the cayenne. It still had some kick, but next time I'll go full throttle on the spice...we can take it. Might be good with a pinch of curry or cumin as well. I rubbed the spices into the chicken a good 3-4 hours before cooking and sprayed with olive oil. Like some reviewers, I broiled the chicken 8-10 min per side and it turned out perfect. I wasn't blown away by it, but I will say it makes a pretty tasty meal if you're pressed for time or just don't feel like spending hours in the kitchen. And since the recipe makes enough for future use, that cuts the prep time even more.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This was ok. Maybe it's just me, but I have a really hard time wrapping my head around a 'healthy' recipe that includes that much bacon and oil. Initially, I tried to stick as close to the recipe as possible, but made slight changes to keep it healthy. I halved the recipe, omitted the oil entirely (I don't see why you'd need it with greasy bacon involved), only used 1 slice of bacon, fresh tomatoes, and bow-tie pasta instead of penne. As is, it was somewhat bland. So at the last minute, I spritzed on some Fat-free Italian dressing and a dash of oregano. Better. A little garlic salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Better still. And then crumbled some low fat feta on top. Not bad at all. But not great. I might make this again and play around with it. It made a decent side dish to the Spicy Chicken Breasts recipe on this site and it was fairly easy to throw together. It's a good starter to something you can really tweak to your own tastes. On it's own, it's a little lacking.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2004
Perfect! Hurrrrah! I see quite a few people have mentioned their cookies turned out flat. I just pulled the most perfect cookies I've ever made out of the oven....fluffy as can be! I just used 1/4 c shortening and 3/4 c butter rather than the suggested 1/2 c of each and instead of using salt, just add another teaspoon of baking soda. You'll have giant mountainous cookies!
