Famous Chicken Francaise

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
I think this recipe has tremendous potential, but will need some tweaking. My coating stayed on PERFECTLY!... I dipped in flour first, then egg (and left it to marinade for about 20 mins), then flour again, then egg and then finally coated in flour and tossed in the pan. I heated the pan first, then the butter, then put the chicken in and it browned quickly. I also pounded it pretty thin. The coating was perfectly crisp and it even stayed pretty decent with the broth, but next time I think I will keep the broth separate and instead pour everything over linguini.

Floating Island Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
As the original recipe, I give it 3 stars.... the way I made it, I would give it 5. Here were my modifications: Instead of orange juice and lemonade, I substituted pink lemonade and wild berry concentrates, only used 1/2 pint of sherbet, and added the carbonated things LAST so the sherbet wouldn't cut out the carbonation! I used this for a baby shower and it was a HUUUUGE hit!

Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
I wish I could give this ZERO stars. This was downright awful. I followed the recipe to a T and it just simply was not good at all. Took forever and fell flat. It was beyond bland but some of the flavors that it did have just clashed horribly. After tasting it, I tried to rescue it but to no avail. It ALL went down the garbage disposal. What a waste. The consistency was horrid.

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 :)

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
This was really good! I simmered for about 30 mins longer while my pasta and garlic bread cooked and also added oregano, parsley and basil (at the end), also S&P. I sauteed about 2 cloves of garlic with the butter in the very beginning but will probably use 3 or 4 cloves next time. I'd love to try this with fresh ingredients! We had some left over that we froze -- definitely looking forward to the leftovers!

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
This has potential but something made it too sweet. I think it may have been the bread - we used a Pillsbury French Loaf. It had a hint of sweetness and I didn't like that aspect of it at all.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
I am SOO glad I decided to try this recipe! I consider myself a connoisseur of mac n cheese and I give this one four stars. It had humble beginnings in the pot at first but it turned out really great! I didn't use bacon or an actual onion, but instead used onion powder (a few shakes). Also, I baked it in a 9x13 baking dish since I don't yet have a 2-qt dish (newlyweds, go figure). I only baked it for about 6 or 7 minutes because I was afraid it would dry out. It turned out great! Next time I think I'll add some swiss as well!

I should've known that this was too easy to be true! WAAAAY too salty! Neither my husband nor I liked this at all.

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.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
This is truly awesome! In fact, we're making it again tonight! I used parmesan bread crumbs and omitted the salt (the cheese makes it salty enough for us). The bottoms were a little "soggy" but the sides and tops were so crisp that the bottom didn't bother us at all. Served this with mashed potatoes and was very filling. Next time I will try others' suggestion of freezing the cheese then crumbling it in. I scaled the recipe down to 4 but only used three breasts, and those three took up my entire baking dish!

Apple Cranberry Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
I really screwed this recipe up but it turned out pretty darn good regardless! I ended up mixing everything together in one large pot after I realized I messed it up, then baking it as a mixture instead of layered. Really good!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Really tender and tasteful. My one and only gripe is that that it was a bit saltier than I'd like but I'm certain that is a result of the condensed soup. Even my husband who is a self-professed pot roast hater cleaned his plate

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.

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 :(

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I didn't make the original recipe as it was written, but with the changes I made this is most DEFINITELY a FIVE STAR recipe! WOW!!!!!!!! I used green apples because they are a little more tart than the red ones, and with all the sweetness going on in this recipe, I am glad I went with the green. I chopped them up into small pieces. Then I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar into the apples before folding them into the dough. I baked them for ten minutes, then flipped and baked an add'l ten mins. Meanwhile, I left out all of the water, used 1/2 c brown sugar and 1/2 c white instead of the entire cup of white. Then, I flipped the dumplings back over, and poured the mixture over the dumplings for a final ten minute bake (so that was 30 mins in total).

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
Fantastic! They are as good as they are simple! I lined my pan with foil as to avoid clean-up and used freshly grated pepper and salt. I ended up adding a little more s&p at the end once ?I gave an initial taste test. I sliced my potatoes thinly which cut down on baking time considerably.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
This is truly great. SOOOO easy, too!! I had to modify it to 15 servings because my pitcher didn't accomodate the full recipe, but obviously that turned out fine. My husband is a lemonade fanatic and I'm so tired of canned versions... so I was awful happy that this tasted like homemade :)
