Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Top ratings for speedy prep and a tasty, juicy piece of chicken. I used boneless, skinless thighs, pounded them as others suggested, broiled them close to the heat for about 5 min. per side, and they were ready by the time the rice was done. Pounding them thin eliminated the need others mentioned to bake them part of the time. I tried to cut calories by using half the butter called for, and while the sauce was a bit thin, the flavor was still good. My husband realy liked them too. Thanks, Ava!

Uglies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
We were craving tacos, but were out of shells. The kids and I loved these with taco filling in them, shredded Mexican cheese mixture on top and salsa & sour cream on the side. The only reason I didn't rate them a 5 was because of the fat factor. I'll try reduced fat biscuits next time. Thanks for the great idea - it really saved our day!

Roasted Asparagus with Herbes de Provence

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
I just munched my way through half a bunch of roasted asparagus. It was delicious, and so easy! My favorite kind of recipe. Thanks. P.S. I agree that the bowl wasn't necessary; I just placed the asparagus, drizzled and sprinkled and stuck it in the oven.

Zesty Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I give this recipe 5 stars for the flavor return on your time investment. I was looking for a recipe like the "Chicken Italian" my mom used to make. I only made a few changes: Used chicken breasts b/c that's what I had; marinated the chicken for about 30 in. in Mojo Criollo b/c my husband really enjoys the kick; and used packaged, pre-sliced potates. To save washing a bowl, I also just sprinkled the lemon, lime, and dressing over everything before covering and baking. After 45 minutes, I sprinkled shredded Italian cheese, Italian seasoning, and baked uncovered a few minutes more. Yum yum!

Baked Beef Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I loved this stew and would personally give it 5 stars, but my husband thought my other recipe is better, so I compromised with 4. I love being able to stick it in the oven and forget it, and somehow I like the texture of the meat better than my crock pot recipe. Like others, I like the corn starch substitution. Try this recipe and figure out what tweaking your family prefers - you won't regret it!

Taco Bake I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
This is very similar to my mom's taco casserole, but she unrolls and pats out a can of refrigerated crescent roll dough in the bottom of the casserole and tops the shredded cheese with crushed taco chips. I'd give it a five star with these (admittedly caloric) additions. We like to add chopped green chiles and black olives, but that's a matter of individual taste. It's yummy either way!

Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
I accidentally used regular barley instead of quick-cooking, which I think made it a 3-star recipe, rather bland and had to doctor up a lot. I'd assume that the quick-cooking doesn't cook up to as much volume and maybe that would make the difference? I like others' suggestion to use sliced or cubed instead of ground beef. I'll try this again with the changes - I think it has potential.

Swanson® Savory Pot Roast with Harvest Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Loved the cooking method; the house filled with wonderful aromas. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because I thought it needed additional seasoning (onion, garlic powder, bay leaf; I also went ahead and added a little red wine along with the V8). Also, the meat wasn't as moist as I would have liked, so I just sliced it thickly and let it sit in the gravy for a few minutes before serving. I was busy and overcooked the veggies a bit, but the family loved it anyway. Thanks.

City Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Almost didn't try this, since I can pan-fry breaded pork chops any time. But this recipe was a real hit; even my picky son ate some! The only change I made was to add some onion and garlic powders to the flour and to the pork as it cooked. Easy and delicious!

Beer Cheese Philly Steak Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I rated this recipe based on the confidence that it would be wonderful if made as written. I made it with frozen Philly steaks, which I'm sure affected the quality slightly. (Next time I would cook the steaks as directed on the package, in a skillet, instead of heating them along with the spices and broth.)Not having beer, I used beef broth and a little balsamic vinegar. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because my hubby thought the bread on the bottom was too soggy, but our preferences differ on this point. The cheese on top gave it a great texture to balance the soggy bread, in my opinion. Thanks for a great idea!

Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
The easiest company-worthy dish I've come across. The sauce was the perfect consistency for clinging to the shrimp and lingering on the tongue - and looked glossy like the magazine photos to boot! I gave this 5 stars with slight modifications: left the minced garlic in the dish and added a dash each of Season-All and lemon pepper and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Fabulous! Thanks for the submission.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I make this all the time and just realized that I'd never rated it. It's easy, delicious, and quick - mix up the topping before you start the fish under the broiler or you'll end up overcooking it. This is a forgiving recipe - after making it a couple of times, I don't measure the ingredients any more, and I can substitute seasonings depending on what I have on hand or am in the mood for. Thanks for a great weeknight family pleaser!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
All I can say is, this is IT! We love salmon and have been searching for the perfect recipe. I did the foil packets since we don't have a grill, and it was delicious! Extra stars for ease of preparation too. Thank you!

Pumpkin Walnut Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
NOT for bake sales (too soupy), so I'm having to keep this for myself (oh, poor me!) I mixed some of the cake mix in with the pumpkin, baked it longer than specified and it still wasn't of a consistency that could be cut into bars. I used pecans and it worked well, although I'm sure walnuts would be great. Will definitely pull this out at thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe!

Summertime Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Delish and moist tilapia! Couldn't find a shallot, so used onion, and used a tiny bit of cooking wine since I had no tequila, but kept everything else the same. A forgiving recipe and I think it would be good on other fish and maybe poultry? Thanks!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This is an easy and customizing-friendly recipe. I give it 4 and 1/2 as written, and 5 with the addition of a seasoning rub on the roast before browning, and beef broth instead of water. Sodium count admittedly goes up quite a bit with this version. Thanks for a yummy family dinner!

Carrot Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
I needed a dairy free casserole, and this fit the bill. I cooked the carrots with a little water in the microwave until nearly done, then added the squash (little more water) and all the seasonings and finished them, with the addition of a bit more herbs since one reviewer indicated that it needed something. I then stirred in the mayo and proceeded as directed. My family loved it, but I thought the mayo flavor was a bit overpowering....would like something more savory. I'll make again and play with the flavors. Thanks for a great starter recipe!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
Made this exactly as written, except for slicing the carrots into fairly thin coins. I didn't have 8 hours to cook it, so I cooked it for 6 hours with a combination of high and low heats, mostly high. Everyone enjoyed it and the veggies were a perfect texture. I wish that I had made the creamy horseradish sauce recommended here by others; I think it would have been great. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
Really easy and a nice flavor. Our family consensus was that it needed the addition of a bit of tomato sauce (even my husband, who likes his spaghetti sauce to be meaty "like chili"). I could double or triple this and have freezer meals at hand. Thanks!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
I gave this recipe 5 stars because I think it would be great as written; I was looking for a recipe I could modify to be non-dairy and this was pretty good. I used Almond milk, Smart Balance butter, and added almost 1/4 cup sugar (to our taste). These were fairly easy to handle, although didn't flip too easily, and the taste/texture were ok with our toppings. Maybe less melted butter next time, since I needed plenty in the skillet to prevent sticking. Thanks!
