African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
oh... my... GOSH! This recipe sets a whole new standard of AWFUL! All in all, I wasted three lbs of chicken, a jar of natural PB, and money on spices I will probably never use again. WE ABSOLUTELY *HATED* THIS! We're on our way out to dinner now. What a waste.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no baker, but these turned out pretty darn good! I added a tsp. of vanilla extract to the dough, and mixed the butter for a full 20 minutes before adding the additional ingredients. I also refrigerated the dough for about 10 minutes to make it easier to work with when adding it to the cookie sheet. I put them on a sheet with foil and lightly sprayed it so they wouldn't crumble when taking them off. I garnished the second batch with some tiny red sprinkles... mmmmm mmmmm!!!!! These tasted great the following day and were still pretty soft :)

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
VERY lemony. Next time I will most definitely half the lemon content and refrigerate the floured chicken so it sticks better during cooking. This recipe has potential :)

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2005
I'm changing my rating from a 3 to a 4! Made this again last night and tried it with the cream of chicken WITH HERBS soup instead and it made a huge difference. I also seasoned the breasts with a dash of seasoning salt, paprika, garlic, and parsly prior to adding the cheese. We used two breasts but kept the sauce at the given measurements. I made mashed potatoes and used the "gravy" from this dish to pool into the potatoes... REALLY good with them! We'll be making this comfort food again.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2005
This was pretty good. I tweaked it a bit, though. I couldn't find sun-dried tomatoes in our commissary, so I picked up the DelMonte Italian Style Stewed Tomatoes and used them including their juices. I doubled the sauce recipe, but only used ONE tablespoon of basil. One Tbsp seemed to be the perfect amount since basil seems to be overpowering at times. The finished product was pretty good, but it tasted like it was missing something.... I think next time I'll play with some other spices... probably add a lot more garlic! This is going into my recipe box!! OH!... I also added a splash of Chardonnay and Vodka.

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
These turned out really great, much to my surprise! I substituted a half cup of maple syrup and honey since I ran out of Karo syrup, and it added more diverse flavor.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2004
This was REALLY great! I added some rosemary and garlic to the sauce to give it some flavor and everything turned out just great! I baked it for about 40 minutes with foil over it and then uncovered it for the last 10 minutes. We reheated it for lunch today and it was maybe even better than last night! I'm adding this to my recipe box... definitely a keeper!!

Mini Cheesecakes II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
I made these for my husband two nights ago and he ate... one. Just one. He said they were very bland and did not taste much like cheesecake at all. Maybe I overcooked them a bit, but I guess that still doesn't explain the lack of flavor. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but he rated this one a 2.5 :(

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2004
These were OK. We found them to be rather bland and uneventful. I rolled them in sugar and that just burned the bottoms of them. I won't be making these again. They were, however easy to make... maybe if I dressed them up more (ie: candy or something) they would have turned out better.

Breaded Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2004
I've made this a lot and it has turned out pretty good every time! The coating doesnt stick very well to the bottom and is chunky overall, but still tastes good. I lightened up on the curry powder and the italian seasoning to give it less of a 'bite' the second time around and that seemed to work a little better since the Ital. Seasoning is pretty overpowering if you over-do it.
