Roasted Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2015
This flavor combination is worth 10 stars! Use the seasoning and lemon to taste and this will be one of your favorite ways to cook chicken. For 12 chicken legs, I lightly coat with olive oil and use half the amount of seasoning and lemon called for, which makes it perfect for us. When I have no lemons, bottled lemon juice works well. I tried it with potatoes, but much prefer to cook the potatoes and chicken separately in shallow baking pans and baste the potatoes with some of the drippings each time I baste the chicken. One time I had to leave these in the oven for an extra hour after they had reached temp, so I turned the oven to 180 and let them sit and they were so good, I do it this way whenever I have the time.

Tamale Pie Pronto

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Very tasty. Made it in large muffin tins and it came out great. (just be sure not to overfill as biscuit on bottom will expand) Note to self: Use 2 teaspoons cumin instead of chili powder, 2 lb ground beef, one pack of sazon to season meat while cooking, sofrito (about 4 Tbs.) instead of ketchup and rotel in place of diced tomatoes.

Easy Lemon Bars

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Made changes as suggested by others and these were AWESOME!! This is one of those things that tastes and looks so good you will find it hard to believe you made it yourself. Notes for next time: Used 12 oz cream cheese and a bit less than 1/2 cup sugar. Used the zest from one lemon and 1/4 c. lemon juice (from 1 1/2 lemons), put 1/3 of the zest and a Tablespoon of juice in with the cake mix and the rest of the zest and juice in the cream cheese filling. Cooked as directed but with the extra liquid it needed about 25 minutes for the second stay in the oven instead of 15. Dusted with powdered sugar once it was cool. Soooooo yummy!!

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2012
Doubled marinade for 4 chops but used only 1 Tbsp. oil, 1 tsp. cider vinegar in place of lemon juice and added 1 tsp stone ground mustard with horseradish. Marinated a couple of hours. Drained and reserved juices (to serve over rice) at 30 minutes before coating with remaining sauce, cooked remaining time uncovered. Very good. Cook less time if chops are less than one 3/4-1 inch thick.

Frogmore Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
We all LOVE this! Made it for my neice's rehearsal dinner/picnic and it was a big hit. The seafood and sausage will disappear long before the potatoes and corn when other side dishes are offered, so if there are a few other potato/pasta/veggie offerings it would be best to cut the potatoes and corn by 1/3 to 1/2 to avoid lots of leftovers. Also, this allows more space for some crab legs, which make a deicious addition. Note to self: use smoked beef sausage and replace part of the water with 2 beers.

Classic Goulash

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
This was very good and it is easy to cut the recipe in half. Note to self: use only half the Italian seasoning called for and add a bit of oregano, add beef boullion in place of 2/3 of the salt. If using Bowtie pasta, double the number of cups needed. Additionally, a little extra garlic (2 cloves for half a batch) doesn't hurt.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Very good! Due to what was on hand and personal preference I used a mixture of dk. and lt. brown sugar, 1/3 c. prepared orange juice, regular mustard and no cloves. Put pineapples and cherries on with first application of glaze and basted them with glaze for 2 more applications and one additional basting with pan drippiings/glaze mixture, which was also delicious served on the side as is. I did tent the ham after first hour and cooked 2 1/2 hours total prior to adding glaze. Much enjoyed by all.

Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Pears

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
Very good! Note to self: Omit the milk to make them a bit stiffer. When scaled down to 3 servings (which is more like 6 for a side dish on a holiday) use 3 small sweet potatoes, 1 1/2 pears simmered in a tablespoon of water and 3/4 tsp vanilla until tender, a tablespoon of butter and a little less than 1/4 tsp cinnamon.

Marzetti® Ultimate Roasted Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
The cooking time is way off. People thinking this will be done in 22 minutes will end up with an undercooked dish. Listen to the first reviewer expect to double the cooking time.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This is very tasty as is, I made it as written the first time. This time, as per suggestions, I made it in the slow cooker with two chicken breasts. (1 hour on high, 2 on low, removed and shredded chicken then returned it and cooked for 2 hours more on low. Note to self: Added a tsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp of chili powder and a can of low sodium cream of chicken as per other suggestions and 2 Tbsp of goya cilantro base, which all together made it absolutely amazing!! Be sure to use low sodium broth, 2 cans is equal to most of a carton. Fat free sour cream works well with this.

Chocolate Fudge Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
More like a moist, fudgy brownie than a chocolate pound cake, but who cares about the name when it tastes this good?!? I added nuts (about a cup) and it came out perfectly. I almost took some out for cupcakes since others had problems with overflowing, but now I think their bundt pans may have been too small; even with a cup of nuts added, this came out great. I would not add more than one cup of additions or even the 10 inch might overflow. Came back to get the recipe, I am going to try Lemon Supreme cake with Lemon Supreme icing. Update: The lemon came out much more like pound cake than the chocolate and was just as delicious. I replace half the oil with unsweetened applesauce when I have it, and it tastes equally as yummy and is healthier.

Italian Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Tastes better the next day. I use about 3/4 the dressing when mixing and then add more as needed before serving and usually add chopped pepperoni. Spring onions are a wonderful substitute for the red onion.
