Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
I made these meatballs as directed (except for using regular cream cheese) and thought the Italian seasoning was a little strong and that the red pepper flakes were a little much. Next time I'd decrease both by at least half. I used an ice cream scoop to portion out my meatballs - I didn't fill it all the way so they came out a little wonky, but it kept my hands clean :)

Tangy Poppy Seed Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I used two cans of mandarin oranges, a can of pineapple, two kiwis, two small packages of blueberries and a package of strawberries and maybe a cup of grapes. Given how much fruit I used, I figured I'd double the "dressing," but ended up with a little too much liquid. I think I could have left the liquids the same, but still used the full teaspoon of poppy seeds and been just fine. Even though it was a little liquidy in the bottom, everyone enjoyed it!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Everyone liked this potato salad, but man, was it time consuming! And given all the work that went into it, I didn't think it stood out THAT much above other potato salads. I used half mayo and half sour cream, green onion instead of white, and added some garlic paprika dip mix that I had on hand.

McCormick® Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
I halved this recipe and made two "sandwiches" with apricot jam and two with raspberry. Also ended up using wheat bread because it was what was in the fridge. We really liked the wheat-raspberry combo, but the apricot got kind of lost in the wheat flavor, so if you're going to do apricot jam, definitely use a white bread. The nice thing about the wheat bread, though, was that it was nice and sturdy for soaking and flipping. Finally, I used regular cream cheese with a little milk to loosen it up to a "whipped" texture. All in all a yummy breakfast!

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I prepared this dish in the oven. I started the potatoes alone on a large baking sheet tossed with salt, pepper and olive oil. Roasted at 375 for 20 min. Meanwhile, I simmered the kielbasa for a few minutes on the stovetop, and then sliced it and the peppers. Finally I tossed everything together, seasoned with pepper, garlic powder and onion powder, and roasted for 20 more minutes. This worked well for us, and the hubby actually ate his peppers!

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
We gave this five stars, although I took a lot of suggestions along the way! First, didn't bother browning the chicken. Second, omitted the salt and bouillon/water and used a can of chicken broth and a glug or two of white wine. Third, used lemon pepper instead of regular and used a whole teaspoon. Put it all into the crock pot and cooked two hours on high and two and a half on low. It came out pretty well, although next time I might try putting in some of the lemon zest to give it a little bit more lemon flavor. Thanks!

Baked Penne and Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
My boyfriend and I thought this was a solid 4 casserole recipe. I did tweak it slightly by skipping the french-fried onions and adding spices (onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and a few red pepper flakes). I also added a bit more cheese than called for and used rotini instead of penne. The suggestion about stirring partly through the cooking time was a good idea. My boyfriend would like to add that more cheese is always better.

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
I made the marinade as directed and then poured it over the chicken tenders in a Pyrex dish and baked at 350 for 30 minutes. My fiance and I thought it came out great considering it wasn't grilled. Next time I'll take the advice of others and marinade the chicken longer, probably adding some garlic, ginger and pepper flakes to the mix. Thanks for another easy chicken recipe!

Baked Pineapple

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I made this for Easter and everyone really liked it! Some suggestions: 1) Beat the eggs before adding; 2) use the juice from the pineapple, and mix the cornstarch with the juice before adding to the other ingredients to avoid cornstarch clumps. I also mixed the cinnamon right in with everything else and skipped the extra butter on top. I used 3/4 a cup of sugar and it worked out nicely. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe!

Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
We liked the idea of this lasagna, but it didn't turn out as well as we were expecting. First, it was kind of watery/runny. Second, the chicken should probably be shredded instead of chunked. Third, the hot sauce + marinara just didn't quite = buffalo sauce.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
This turkey turned out really well! I used a bone-in breast (approximately 6 pounds) and just cooked it on low while we were at work. My only complaint was that it was kind of salty, so next time I might make up my own rub instead of using the onion soup mix. Even so, we'll be having turkey much more often than just Thanksgiving and Christmas!

V-Eight Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I made my soup by putting a can of sliced potatoes, 2 12 oz pkgs of frozen veggies, 1 lb. of ground beef and a packet of onion soup mix in my crock pot. Then I poured as much V8 in as would fit (not quite the whole container). I thought that this was great considering it's about as basic a soup as you can get. Next time I'll brown my beef with some Montreal Steak Seasoning for a little more flavor.

Roast Beef Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
These were a nice change from the usual dinner. I skipped the horseradish for personal preference. I did find it to be pretty salty - probably from the deli meat and jarred gravy combo. My fiance does want to try it again with other combinations of meats and gravies.

Boston Iced Tea

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
I made this tea as directed and enjoyed it. Next time, though, I think I might try a cran-apple concentrate for a little additional non-sugar sweetness.

Campbell's® Slow Cooker Hearty Beef and Bean Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
The name of this recipe describes it perfectly - definitely hearty, beefy and beany! If you like your chili this way, you'll like this recipe. I did add a bit of cayenne pepper to it to kick up the spice a little bit. Served with salad and Sweet Corn Bread (from this site).

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Delicious! I used 1/2 peck of Jonathan apples for my apple butter, with 2 cups white sugar, 1 cup Splenda, 1/2 tsp cloves and 3 tsp cinnamon. I did have to let it cook for quite a while (4 hours) with the lid off for it to reduce, and it probably could still have gone a little longer. I then ran it through the blender for increased smoothness. I'll be making apple butter all the time now!

Snickerdoodle Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
This cake was delish! I did make a few additions - some cinnamon and vanilla to the batter. I also tossed in a bag of cinnamon chips, as I have a bunch and figured it'd be a good way to use them up. Thanks for a great recipe!

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I very much enjoyed this recipe, but found it to be kind of salty (even with using only 1/4 to 1/2 of a tsp). I doubled the wine and rosemary, and also added in a little onion powder. Thickened it up with a little cornstarch at the end. Thanks for a simple and tasty dish!
