The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
I also found this recipe originally through Pinterest, and made it last week - my picky toddler & preschooler really liked it, as did my pickier husband! It's pretty clear from the recipe that it's not really chicken parm - it isn't breaded for one thing. It's more like a deconstructed version of the dish. We loved the croutons, and would probably add a bit more sauce. I used chicken tenderloins, and ended up using about 1.3 pounds of them. Served with linguine. Really nice and easy dish overall - thanks!

Betsy's Poppy Seed Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2006
We've been making this for years, and love this recipe! We leave off the butter, and it does not affect the taste. I also add 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder and 1/2 of onion powder. The recipe doesn't specify this, but the sour cream should be 8 oz.

Spicy Cajun Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
We really enjoyed this, thanks! I did make quite a few changes though: I doubled the seasonings since I wanted to make 1 lb. of shrimp (although that wasn't necessary since it made so much leftover seasoning!) used 1 tsp salt (4 is ridiculous!), left out the white pepper b/c I didn't have it, added about 1 tsp of lime juice, and threw in about 2 tsp of creole seasoning. I first made them under the broiler, but they broiled very inconsistently, although I left them there for about twice as long as I was supposed to. I made the remaining shrimp on the grill pan, and will make them on that in the future. Thanks!

Spanish Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
We LOVE the rice in this recipe, although the chicken was pretty bland. I used about 1 lb. of boneless chicken cutlets, and added 1/2 tsp chili powder to the chicken coating mixture (although it didn't do much good.) Instead of pimientos, I used 1 chopped up jalapeno. When I was adding in the broth, I also added in 1/4 c. of hot salsa. I did leave the dish fully covered. The rice was delicious, but very spicy. I made the rice again a few days later, since it was so good!

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
This was a hit at our bbq - thanks! I made as directed, except I took other reviewers' advice and instead of white wine vinegar I used raspberry vinaigrette with a touch of balsamic.

Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This recipe makes phenomenal meatballs, although I skip a huge step and just buy Classico's Spicy Tomato & Basil sauce instead of making it myself. I also use 3 cloves of garlic, 1 T of cilantro instead of parsley, 3 T Parmesan, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp chili powder, and 2 beaten eggs in the meat mixture. I also use Italian bread crumbs, and leave out the Italian seasoning. I end up making about 19-20 meatballs, and fry them in 2 T of olive oil for 5 minutes, and then add in a jar of the sauce and let them cook in that for about another 10-15 minutes, until the meat is well cooked. They're amazingly good!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
So easy to make, and my husband and I loved it! I doubled the sauce recipe (but left ginger amount the same) which is a must, and also added about 1/8 cup of chili garlic sauce to the sauce. It had a great kick. Used uncooked shrimp, and cooked it in the sauce. Delicious, thanks!

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
SO GOOD, and so easy, thanks! I used crushed graham crackers for a base (mixed with 4 T melted butter and 4 T sugar) for half the cheesecakes and then crushed oreos (with 4 T melted butter) for the other half. Melted 3 oz. chocolate chips and mixed them in 1/2 the batter. Swirled preserves with a toothpick in a handful of the plain cakes. Decorated with cherry pie filling, but left some plain. They disappeared very quickly at a picnic I took them to. Thanks!!

We just used regular milk and 1 tsp of vanilla, otherwise everything as written - quicky, tasty recipe, thanks!

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Relatively easy to make, will do nicely as an appetizer at a dinner party. I used unsweetened shredded coconut (very fine), and 2 whole eggs rather than the egg whites. Will make again, with the apricot dipping sauce mentioned in several reviews. Thanks!

Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Delicious! Added in 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla, and only used 1/2 c butter (and used a little less of the dry ingredients to compensate - but probably only left out about 1/5 c of that.)

Rigatoni Florentine

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Very good, thanks! I put the garlic in first, sauteed it in the oil, then added the chicken and some cayenne pepper for flavor. I halved the recipe, and used Classico's Spicy Tomato and Basil sauce. The sauce was a bit thick, but good overall. I'll definitely add in sauteed mushrooms next time, and maybe capers.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Not unbelievable, but pretty good and a nice change from our usual chicken marinades. I followed one of the top reviewers to bake it at 350 for about 40 minutes, halved the marinade and used about 1.3 lbs of chicken tenderloins. I liberally added red pepper flakes and onion powder, and about half as less brown sugar than needed. Made with brown rice, will make again. Thanks!

Baked Ziti Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
This was a good basic recipe - I needed a meatless main dish since we were having vegetarian guests, so I made this pretty much as is. The only difference was to use 2 jars of sauce instead of one, which is a must - it would have been way too dry otherwise. Thanks! ***UPDATE***I made this again the following week, and added a liberal amount of Italian seasoning and garlic powder to the ricotta mixture. It was much better! Otherwise, the ziti has a blandness problem.

Habanero Pepper Cream Pasta

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I just didn't think this was anything special, and way too much fat for a so-so dish!

Pakistani Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I really wanted to like this recipe, but it turned out to be my first real AR disaster! I tripled the spices and added garam masala and turmeric - without it, it would have been an extremely bland dish. Also, I know think there's a reason why there's no time estimates given - I cooked the potatoes for about an hour, and they still weren't tender. I finally ended up tossing the whole pot.

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
So good! I followed the suggestions, and served the chicken separately. I used one egg, but all the breadcrumbs - and I was happy I did, since it was just enough. I used panko breadcrumbs for some added crunch, 1 tbsp red pepper flakes, and added onion and garlic powders to the sauce. It was so good, that I'm eating just the pasta (no meat) as leftovers - and I never eat meatless meals! Thanks!

Dynamite Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
This was great - we added in more chili garlic sauce, as well as some red pepper, and served with the marinated grilled shrimp from this site, as an appetizer at our bbq. Thanks!

Shrimp and Portobello Mushroom Fettuccine

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I was unimpressed with this dish - there was waaaay too much butter and cream in this, and I normally don't even care about that stuff! The cream cheese was pointless - all the other cream in the dish masked it. There also wasn't too much taste to the meal. I'm giving it 3 stars only because my brother seemed to like it. Thanks anyway!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
Very nice recipe - I used 1 tsp of vanilla as well, and added in 1 Tbsp of beet powder to make them "pink princess pancakes" for my 4 year old :)
