Golden Chicken and Autumn Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
So easy and tasty, hubby and I like this as a simple weeknight meal. I always pound the chicken breasts thinner, and season well with S&P, garlic and onion powders, and a little crushed rosemary and thyme before browning. I never have blandness probs as another reviewed stated and I think it's because I season well before cooking. I've been using this recipe for years, cut from off a Swanson broth can! I like anothers suggestion of adding diced onion and apple...will try that next time!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Oh my goodness! This was heavenly. My husband had never had tiramisu before, and I've had it a few times, but this had both of us saying, "Wow!" and wanting more. I halved the recipe, but DOUBLED the coffee/rum as suggested by many others. I brewed the coffee extra-strong, poured a half cup, and added about four generous tablespoons of Cap't Morgan's Spiced Rum (my fave). I lined a 9x5 bread tin with cling wrap (so easy to lift the dessert out to cut and serve and then drop back in to save the leftovers), then layered 1/2 the lady fingers on the bottom (two rows of five). I DID NOT SPLIT the lady fingers, as the ones I found were thin and delicate. Drizzled a hefty amount of the coffee mix, then I layered 1/2 the mascarpone mixture and then 1/2 the cream. Repeated the same steps, then sifted on a dusting of cocoa powder, and just a touch of confectioner's sugar. I had it sit in the fridge for a full 24 hours to allow the flavors to mingle and intensify. This would be a great dessert to impress company, especially after a meal of lasagna with garlic bread and a colorful green salad. SO DELISH!

Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
These are now my official favorite cookie to bake! I use a 12oz bag of chocolate chips, melting the asked for amount and stirring the remaining chips into the dough. I've used milk chocolate too and that was a sweet variation. I make these probably too frequently! Mmmmm! Update: Even better with dried cherries stirred into the batter. YUM!

Baked Mac and Cheese for One

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
YUM!!! I used Medium cheddar. I made this as an individual side dish served in ramekins. It had a bit of zest to it which my husband noticed right away (thanks to the dash of Worcestershire and hot sauce) and he asked that I make this whenever we have mac & cheese.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Amazing carnitas at home! Better than many restaurants I've eaten in! I forgot the cinnamon and didn't notice. Added a can of diced tomatoes b/c it sounded good. It tasted VERY good!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
'Absolutely Fabulous' indeed! Tastes great on your good ol' classic salad, or continue the theme on a salad with artichoke hearts, feta cheese, and sliced black olives! Thanks for sharing Danielle!

Apple Pie Spice Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I use this same exact mix and I love it! Gotta give it 5 stars! This blend has been one of the few secrets in my wicked awesome apple pie that has people saying "wow! that's good apple pie!" I add it to my apple-pie-knock-off oatmeal for a really tasty breakfast, too. Love, love, love cardamom!

Pumpkin Pie Spice II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I have all the individual spices that go into this blend in my spice collection anyhow-why spend addt'l money on the mix too? I increased the yield to fill an empty spice container I had. Tastes no different to me than if I had spend the $4 or whatever on it at the market, and it adds more home-made-ness to your cooking!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
These were pretty dang amazing as far as pretzels at home go! Soft centers, chewy outsides, plus the authentic pretzel taste. THE THINNER YOU GET THE DOUGH TO ROLL, THE BETTER THEY COME OUT! I tried to go for big, thin pretzels, with dough the diameter of my finger. My husband request the next batch be made with jalapenos and cheese. I'll have to make another batch for myself with cinnamon and raisins and I'll make a nice icing glaze to drizzle on them!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I wanted to try red beans and rice and made this for my husband and a friend (who hates rice). Both loved it! I rather liked it too, and I don't even care for spicy foods. (I added a few shakes of hot sauce and some homemade cajun seasoning blend-hubby likes it hot). I had to omit bell pepper-didn't have any, but I think next time I would like to use red bell pepper. I cut the recipe in half but still used a full can of tomatoes-used fire roasted diced. Also, I cook plain rice in chicken stock, not water, for flavor. Will definitely make this one again and again! This recipe is described as an "easy take on a LA classic." If you're looking to make an easy meal with red beans and rice, TRY THIS: IT'S GOOOOD!

Chicken Scarpariello

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Yum. This tastes fancy! Served it with french style green beans and a white bean puree. Followed MARKINPA's advice of adding a little lemon juice. I put too many shallots and garlic in the sauce; it still tasted fantastic, but it was too loaded with them.

Apple-Cranberry Crisp

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
I will never pay for the pre-blended mix again. This saves money and tasted great in red beans and rice. Can't wait to try it rubbed on grilled chicken.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
Classic Boston baked beans! Bring on the brown bread! I've been making this same recipe for years. Kudos for not using canned pork-n-beans; these are REAL baked beans. I make them in a slow cooker depending on when I plan to serve them, but follow as TBYE7 suggested and take off the lid for the last 2 hours to thicken them up; Boston beans are thick, not runny. thanks for posting!

Nana Dot's Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. This is very easy to make. It is so yummy that I made 2 loaves for this past St. Patrick's day, and then another 3 loaves since! I love to warm up a slice and spread butter on it. Other than making the 2 tsp of caraway seeds heaping, I don't change a thing. Do not skip the currants or caraway seeds, they help make it delish!

Alfredo Sauce

I add extra garlic and freshly ground white pepper. I often add steamed broccoli and serve over fettuccine or tortellini. Yummy stuff.

Pineapple Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
I used half water/half pineapple liquid to cook the rice. Used brown sugar instead of white, and also added a little bit more pineapple juice when adding the soy. Omitted the salt, and the egg because I'm not a big fan. Also just used canola oil then added the sesame oil with the soy for flavor. Husband really liked this when I made it with grilled honey teriyaki chicken legs, grilled pineapple rings, and a green salad.

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Excellent! For ease, I opted to pound the chicken to even thickness then cut a pocket into each. For the stuffing, I added chopped baby spinach and some lemon zest. Instead of coating the chicken in flour, I seasoned it with Greek Seasoning blend from Cost Plus World Market (spices are so cheap there!). I again skipped the flour and sauce, but still finished cooking the chicken in some chicken stock with a few squeezes of lemon. I wilted the spinach and tomato separately in olive oil, but added diced red onion and garlic and served with some crumbled feta. Also made a rice pilaf with a brown/wild rice mix, orzo, celery, onion, garlic, chicken stock, and Greek seasoning blend. Was a very nice dinner.
