Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
This is a great recipe! We use it all the time now instead of buying our own. The only thing I changed was cutting down the water by almost half. The sauce was nice and thick -- like Hersheys -- and perfect for chocolate milk! Update- I tried this adding the corn syrup like another reviewer suggested. I'm going to play around with it a little more, but it's nearing perfection!! Thanks for the tip!

Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
This sauce was really good -- the only thing I changed was to add more cheese. It does have a little bit of a grainy texture but both my husband and I love it anyways and it's the only way he'll eat broccolli!

Alfredo Blue

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
This is a delicious recipe, both as is and also cutting back the blue cheese just slightly. My husband won't eat store bought alfredo sauce after tasting this!

Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
Yum! I went to high school in Thailand, and while this isn't EXACTLY like authentic Tom Ka, it's about the closest that I've found! I added extra lemon and will add torn lemon leaves to the soup next time, while cooking (discard lemon leaves before eating)

Miracle Baking Powder Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I have always used my Mom's recipe for pie crust, but never could perfect it just like hers! This is a wonderful, forgiving pie crust for those of us who just can't quite touch Mom's perfection!!

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I made this for a friend's baby shower and it was a hit! I added garlic, and halved the sour cream and cream cheese per other reviews, and it was perfect. Even though only about 20 people showed up (40 were expected), I still came home with hardly any leftovers and lots of recipe requests!

Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I used chicken instead of sausage, as some others suggested, and also used part milk/cornstarch, part heavy cream. I cooked the chicken in the basalmic, and pretty much just tossed everything else together. Oh, I also roasted the squash (chopped into small cubes) till it was starting to caramelize, which did take longer than 30 minutes -- yum! That was also a suggestion from another reviewer. I thought it was absolutely delicious! I love butternut squash, so it isn't really hard to please me. Hubby loved it also. I will definitely make this again!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
YUM! I didn't have dijon (sigh), so I used regular mustard, and it still turned out WONDERFUL! I grilled this on a stove-top grill pan because we don't have an outdoor grill. I also used chicken breast tenderloin cuts, since that's all I had in the freezer. I grilled it until the sauce reduced down to a gooey caramelized mess and it was DELICIOUS! I was afraid the chicken would be dry since I cooked it so long, but it was tender and flavorful and so yummy! Made extra sauce for dipping, as others suggested. My mom is coming in for a visit next week and I can't wait to make this for her! I served it with some roasted vegetables and yellow rice. I will make this a regular meal for sure!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I am making this right now for my husband's birthday as a surprise. I followed some other reviewer's suggestions and slow-cooked my chicken for about 6 hours this morning in broth, drained, shredded, and returned to the crockpot and added the other ingredients. In the middle of all this, I realized I don't have any Italian dressing, which is something I always have on hand! In a panic, I came across the "Italian Dressing Mix" recipe on this website and whipped up a batch. I didn't much care for it, but it's all I had so I added it to the bbq. I was afraid to even taste it, but it is DELICIOUS! Unbelievably easy and so wonderful, even with not-so-great dressing! I know my bbq-lover will be impressed tonight! Thanks for a great recipe!

Pesto Bean Stuffed Manicotti

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This was actually a pretty good dish! We are not vegetarians, but we are trying to be healthier and also feed a family on a budget, which involves cutting down our meat intake. I'm not sure this dish fulfilled being healthy, but it was fairly cheap and made a lot! After trying lots of bean (and budget) dishes, with edible but ho-hum results from my husband, this was a welcome change! The sun-dried tomato basil absolutely made this dish! He ate two helpings, and while it isn't his favorite food in the world, he did say he would eat it again if I made it. I did change a few things though -- I used large pasta shells instead of manicotti, just because they're easier to stuff. I replaced the ricotta with cottage cheese, because it's healthier, cheaper, and it's what I always do with lasagnas. I also used a combination of mozzarella and parmesan cheese -- I didn't have any asiago. I used dried garbanzo beans which I boiled down, then weighed out 16 oz. of beans on the kitchen scale and that made plenty of filling! I would definitely NOT bump it up to 32 oz. of beans next time, but I don't know how they weigh the cans, so maybe I was pretty close to the same amount anyways. I only had dried parsley so I just shook a little into my filling and didn't really measure it out. The last thing I changed was that I just used one 26 oz. can of spaghetti sauce, but it would have been good with all of the sauce so next time I'll use 2 cans. No one had rated this recipe yet, so I

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I was excited to try this because it got really rave reviews, but mine just turned out so-so. I'm still giving it 3 stars because it was so-so, but nothing spectacular for the amount of time it took. I also did change some things, so part of the ho-hum results were probably my fault. First of all, I think the name "quick" is misleading -- it took me about a half hour to prepare this, but that was mostly because of pre-cooking the bacon, and I also added some chopped broccoli and chopped spinach (which had to be nuked in the microwave for a few minutes). Also, I had that Saturday morning slow-start syndrome going, so again... maybe my fault. Then, I had to cook it nearly an hour to get it to set up, and even then there were some parts which were "iffy," but the family was getting so hungry we went ahead and ate it anyways. The only other changes I made were to halve the bacon, use whole wheat flour, and omit the onions since my hubby doesn't like them, and use cheddar (didn't have any swiss). Overall, the taste was ok, but a little bland, and to me, the flour taste waaaay overpowered the eggs, but I take responsibility for that since I used whole wheat. Maybe that made the difference. I've made several different quiche recipes, but probably would not return to this one again -- all the flavor was on the bottom with the bacon and cheese, and the top was, again, flour-y tasting! :) On the upside, we were so hungry by the time it was done, we gobbled it down anyways!

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Very tasty! I made this to go on some focaccia bread I made for chicken sandwiches. I spread the bread with some pesto, topped it with some fresh spinach, roasted red peppers, and mozzarella (the only kind of cheese I had on hand, and put it in the broiler for a few minutes. We put the chicken on the bread right from the oven and this made for one GOOD n' toasty chicken sandwich! I will definitely return to this chicken recipe again and again for lots of different meals!

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
We just used the batter portion of this recipe for our favorite Lemon Chicken recipe, and it was PERFECT! We've been on a quest to find the perfect batter, and this is it! I can't wait to try the whole recipe, since we love sesame chicken too! I didn't have low sodium soy sauce, just the regular stuff, and even cutting back it was still a bit on the salty side. The only thing I would change is to make the batter a little thicker next time so that more of it sticks to the chicken. Overall, wonderful recipe!!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
These are so so good! I would say they are good as is, excellent with some changes. I added one can of Rotel, like some else suggested, used light cream cheese, and also added some shredded chicken from the recipe "Lime Chicken Soft Tacos" (also on this site) that I'd cooked in the slow cooker and shredded. To me the lime-y chicken absolutely MADE these burritos! The only other things I changed were to add cumin (a must!) and also throw in a handful of shredded cheddar since we love cheese. Awesome dinner! I plan on making some more to put in the freezer for nights I'm short on time.

Whole Wheat Maple Quick Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This bread was just so-so for us. I read the other reviews that you could barely taste the maple, so I added a tsp. of maple extract in addition to the syrup, and the maple flavoring was still just ok at best. I think if I had not expected this to be a sweet bread, I would have liked it more, but for some reason the "Maple" in the name led me to imagine a banana bread-like sweet bread, not a plain, hint-of-maple loaf. I hate to add sugar where it's not called for, but I felt like this bread needed it. It was still ok, and we still ate it for breakfasts, but I probably won't make it again. I also only had plain ol' fake syrup (not the real stuff), and imitation maple flavoring, so that might have had something to do with it.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Yummy! I cut the sugar down to a little over a cup and only used 3 eggs, and it was plenty sweet for us! I also did 3/4 c. applesauce and only 1/4 c. oil. Used some whole wheat and some white flour to try and keep it a little healthier. I didn't have allspice so threw in some pumpkin pie spice instead -- the only thing I would change is to maybe increase the ginger next time as I couldn't taste much of the gingerbread, just the pumpkin. But my ginger is getting old so that might have a lot to do with it! I cooked this in a 9x13 for somewhere in between 50 min. and an hour (I forgot to set the timer but that's my best guess). It was moist and delicious!

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Horribly unhealthy for you but SO delicious! I made these for my cousin's birthday and there were almost NONE left! I found Andes chips (in the baking aisle at Walmart), so instead of melting 2 c. chocolate chips, I melted 1 c. regular chocolate chips and 1 c. of the Andes chips. I added the rest of the bag (plus some of a second bag) into the dough and skipped the topping altogether. People were comparing these to Girl Scout Thin Mints "but softer and better!"

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
I'm giving this four stars because my husband loved it -- for me, it was just so-so. I like my own peanut chicken recipe better, however we didn't do this on a grill because we don't have one, and I think the recipe could be delicious grilled! Like everyone else, I wanted more sauce to serve it over rice, so I ended up adding a lot of water to the pan to try and make some sauce. Next time, I will try grilling the chicken, andtweak the sauce recipe to be more similar to my own (which uses coconut milk). To me the lime-y flavor was a little strong, and I love lemon/lime! Also adding just a touch of brown sugar is a must for this Thai-type recipe! I also added just about a tsp. of red curry paste (go easy on that if you don't like hot!). I think I might add just a Tblsp of fish sauce next time to add a little flavor.

Honey-Glazed Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was so yummy! I had my doubts, because at first it didn't seem like there was enough glaze to cover all the dry mix. But as it cooked, the glaze really melted down and coated everything. I added a dash of cinnamon to the honey/butter but it wasn't enough to taste. Next time I'll add more! Thanks this was surprisingly delicious!
