Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
Wow, Haulbur, way to go! I do agree, however, that the cooking time should be decreased for maximum tender and juicyness. This is a 'casual' recipe that I can whip up quickly for unexpected company, leaving them thinking that I just have a natural knack for cooking. - I rate recipes by how they taste - not their 'health attributes' - I do know not to overdue it with the higher cholesteral dishes. So, as far as taste accounts, this recipe is a real winner, and I would proudly serve it to family and friends alike! Thanks for pointing out that simple additions can make a BIG difference!

Traditional Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Excellent recipe for Salisbury Steak. Mild and savory in flavor, with tender, moist patties. Although I love spicy foods, this is not a dish I would try to 'spice up'. Salisbury steak is not intended to be heavily spiced. Thanks for the great recipe!

Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
These scrambled eggs are so good! I love the richness the condensed milk adds. This is my new favorite way to cook eggs!

Cream Cheese Jalapeno Hamburgers

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I loved this more with every bite! The cream cheese makes it so juicy and flavorful! I downsized this for two people; 1 lb. hamburger, 4 oz cream cheese, and about 5 canned chopped jalapenos (I didn't have fresh). Next time I'll add more jalapenos. I'm not sure that someone who didn't know would realize it was cream cheese in the middle; don't tell them and see if they can tell! I am going to try this as a sandwich spread (slightly warmed) too! Thanks for the great recipe!

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Oh my, this is delicious! I halved the recipe for the two of us (there were still plenty of leftovers) and used slightly less than half the riccotta cheese. I also put a layer of mozzerella on the top. It tasted even better reheated! This one wll go in my permanent recipe file! Thanks for the recipe!

Spaghetti Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I really enjoyed this dish! I did make a few changes, though, based on others' suggestions, and what I had on hand. I added a small can of sliced mushrooms - no pimentos, because I didn't have any. I sauteed the onion and bell pepper before adding. I didn't have any wine, so used 1/2 cup of cream instead. I also used the suggestion to sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese and crushed corn flakes during the last 15 minutes (I mixed all of the cheddar into the casserole). It was a little too dry for my taste, so next time I will add the wine in addition to the cream, or use more cream or milk. A great basic recipe that can be fiddled with to suit your own personal taste!

Zesty Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
This is great! It is tasty and zesty. I used the full 2 tablespoons of horseradish; use less or more to your taste. I have tried similar carrot recipes, but this one was the best. I think the julienning makes a difference - I just used my potato peeler to "julienne" the carrots. Thanks Chef-Jeff!

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
Oh, my, this is good! And, it is so foolproof it is almost guaranteed to come out good every time! I followed the recipe, except for two small changes; I didn't add garlic because I was using garlic infused extra virgin olive oil, and I didn't add the lemon slices, although that sounds quite good. The lemon flavor is just right, not too faint and not overpowering. Try it! You will be glad you did.

Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
This is pure comfort food, and a dish that I would be proud to serve to both family and company! I have made this several times, and I can count on it always turning out great. I followed the recipe as printed with two exceptions - I substituted slivered almonds for the water chestnuts, and crumbled potato chips on top instead of crackers - just personal preference. Thanks for the great recipe!

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
This is a very tasty basic recipe - however, I did make a few changes, based on personal preference and availability - Other family members do not like oregano, so I reluctantly left it out. I didn't have any celery, so substituted a few shakes of celery seed. I added one fourth cup of minced green bell pepper, which I sauteed along with the onions, in addition to three minced garlic cloves. I also used all chicken broth, but next time I will make sure to have some vegetable broth on hand - sounds good! And, I used two cups of noodles. As other reviewers have mentioned, the prep time was a bit longer than expected, so I am going to chop up my desired vegetables in appropriate amounts and freeze. With leftover or store bought cooked chicken this soup will really be a breeze! - Don't omit the basil, it really adds to the flavor!

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I made this recipe exactly as printed, and am giving it 4 stars mainly because of it's incredible moistness. It tasted good too, but I thought it was rather bland; next time I think I'll add mushrooms and diced bell peppers, maybe adding a little more sour cream to keep the 'solids to liquids' ratio. I also thought it was too salty, with the crackers and added salt. Now,my personal preference remarks aside, this is a great recipe, which I will make often, with adjustments to suit my own taste!

Tuna Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
This is great for a simple, easy meal. I usually add sliced hard-cooked eggs, and don't worry about the cheese if I don't have any. Lots of pepper, too!

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
Very good recipe, Michelle! This was quick and easy, and everyone in the family liked it. I did follow other reviewer's advice and added 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 teaspoon cayenne and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Next time I will leave out the brown sugar (or only add a tablespoon or two) as I think we would prefer it without the sweet taste.

Meatballs with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
I grew up on dishes like this, and this recipe is very similar to one my grandma (just turned 100!) used to make for us grandkids when we would spend the weekend. The only change I made per grandma's way was to use only to use only 1/4 to 1/3 cup water, so I didn't dilute that wonderful evaporated milk 'taste'. I also added pepper and a little salt to the sauce. Grandma doesn't cook anymore, but I recently made this for her, and she considers it (almost) as good as hers, which is saying alot! Thanks for reminding me of this homey and so tasty old-time recipe!

Cindy's Tasty Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
These wings and sauce are very similar to a recipe my daughter's kindergarten teacher made for parties. It was a hit with the kids, and most adults too, although it is not something I would want to eat as a main dish, as I find it a little too sweet for that. But it is a great party food (with napkins!), and easy, too!

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
Not being a zucchini fan, I really didn't expect to like this - but I did, and so did my family. No, it doesn't really taste like crab cakes, but it does come close! I pretty much followed the recipe, although I did add an extra teaspoon of Old Bay to the filling, and a teaspoon to the flour coating. I also increased the bread crumbs to 1 and 1/2 cups. After draining the grated zucchini, I squeezed it between paper towels to remove excess liquid, which worked well. I assembled these the day before and refrigerated them over night. They held together very well. I also thinly sliced a whole lemon, and sauteed it in the pan along with the zucchini. Very tasty! Thanks for the recipe; I'll be making these again!

Yummy Roll Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
This is a wonderful 'last minute' appetizer, which I have served several times. Not only are they quick, easy and versatile, they taste good to boot! While probably not something I would want to serve at a more formal affair, among family and close friends they are always a hit. I do agree with another reviewer that the quality of the ingredients are extra important in a simple appetizer such as this.

Tamale Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
This is great for a quick and hearty family main dish. I used corn chips (Fritos) because that is what I had on hand; I also used chili with beans. This took 5 minutes to throw together, and only 25 minutes to heat through - fastest meal I have made in a while! I served with sour cream and flour tortilas on the side.

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I made these meatballs exactly as stated. They are quite good, but not the best I have ever tasted. We ate them alone; they were flavorful enough to do that! Next time I will try them in a meatball sandwich with pizza sauce and mozzerella cheese. The texture (soft inside) is different than I am used to, but definitely not dry. We did not think they were too spicy - they could even use a bit more spice if used as an appetizer. Thanks for the recipe!
