Baked Chicken with Peaches

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2003
Don't let some of the reviews scare you away from trying this wonderful recipe! I almost didn't make this because of many reviews complaining about "the sweetness". I'm glad I did! I started by seasoning my chicken breasts with some white wine vinegar and lemon juice. I used the vinegar to offset the sweetness "problem". I then sprinkled black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder over the breasts. I pretty much followed the rest of the recipe as written. I used a fresh peach(with white flesh though) and used a "light" brown sugar to save calories. For the sauce, I used a combo of half cold water/half chilled white wine(Pinot Grigio) mixed with the corn starch. I sprinkled a bit of fresh parsley leaves over it all too. The end result was just fantastic, and even my boyfriend said he couldn't wait until I made this tasty dish again! And, the whole recipe was very quick and easy too. What more could I ask for? Try this, you'll love it! Thank you Lor for a delicious recipe!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
This was my very first time making corned beef. What a wonderful and delicious result! The hint of orange was great. Didn't have any apples, so just did plain cabbage. It didn't matter, everything was absolutely yummy. My mother would be so proud to see me cook this meal. Thanks BETHRACHEL!

Stuffed Kielbasa

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
I just finished eating dinner, and was so pleased I had to review this wonderful, quick, and easy recipe! This was fantastic! Yes, I was raised in a polish household, and maybe that's why this tasted so good, but I urge everyone to give it a try. I used regular instant potatoes, to which I added a bit of a garlic/herb seasoning, as well as some snipped chives and fresh ground pepper. I used a 4-cheese Mexican blend for the cheese topping, and it worked fine. I'll be making this dish as often as my boyfriend wants it, can't wait! Theresa, thank you so much!

Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
I just finished dinner and couldn't wait to review this wonderful and easy recipe. I had scaled the recipe to 2 servings. The only minor change I incorporated into the recipe, was to add 1 clove of minced garlic instead of the garlic salt, and a couple pinches of paprika. I love lemons, and next time I might add a bit more. This meal was so yummy, and easy to throw together! I served it with a mix of long grain and wild rice. Thanks Paynes!

Texas Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
Anyone who reads this, do NOT be afraid to try this easy and wonderful recipe! I'm not a huge fan of ranch dressing, but decided to try this anyway, (and in spite of some of the negative reviews). This was sooo tasty! Yes, I did make a few personal additions though. I used whole breasts, which I seasoned with a salt-free garlic/herb seasoning. To offset the lack of color noted in reviews, I spread sliced black olives and sliced pimiento peppers over the breasts too. I only had peppercorn ranch dressing in the house, so I used that over the breasts. I used another reviewers idea of sprinkling bread crumbs over it all too. I used monterey jack for the cheese during the final 10 minutes. I garnished the meal with snipped pieces of green onion and served it over egg noodles. The end result was a very tasty, colorful, and easy meal! Thanks for a wonderful recipe Jan!

Easy Olive Martini Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
The name and description says it all...this is an easy and fun recipe. It was deliciously surprising(or surprisingly delicious)! I decided to try this because I had some orange flavored gin in my pantry, and I love olives. Since I had the orange gin, I seasoned my chicken breasts with freshly grated tangerine zest(I had no oranges), milled peppercorns, and salt-free chicken seasonings. I added some finely diced shallots with the garlic too. I also added sliced black olives in with the green olives. In addition to the gin, vermouth, and lemon juice, I added the juice from half of the tangerine I had just zested. I garnished the meal with finely sliced green onion and chopped fresh parsley. I served this with simple, buttered egg noodles, and fresh, crusty bread. What a wonderful meal! Thank you Jen for a great, fun, and easy recipe!

Dan's Pork in Tangy Pepperoni and Cashew Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
Dan, this recipe was not only delicious, but creative too. My boyfriend and I were both very pleased with this wonderful dish! I only changed the ingredients a tiny bit. I only had yellow peppers to use, instead of the green. Since I had no white wine handy, I had to use some vermouth. I also added a Tblsp. of sliced black olives because I wanted to use them up. They actually added a bit of extra color to the dish too. Before browning my chops, I seasoned them with premixed Italian spices. The end result was a delicious meal. I served this over a bed of tricolored pasta and sprinkled fresh minced parsley over the whole dish. Thanks for a wonderful recipe Dan!

Kielbasa Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
What a nice change for kielbasa! We loved this! I added onions and mushrooms, sauteed along with the kielbasa. I used a sun-dried tomato alfredo sauce, and it seemed to add an extra nice taste. I had no egg noodles, and ended up using tri-colored rotini pasta. The dish came out yummy and colorful too! Thanks Kitram!

Slow Cooker Kielbasa Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
This was just fantastic! I am of Polish decent, and couldn't wait to try this. I'm so glad I did. I made a few substitutions though. I had no apples in the house, and decided to try unsweetened pineapple chunks instead. They really complimented the dish. I rinsed and drained the sauerkrout because my boyfriend hadn't eaten any since childhood. Instead of all chicken broth, I added the juice (about 2 tblspns)from the canned pineapple to offset the sauerkrout taste. I also added 2 oz. of mushrooms because I needed to use them up. Since I had no caraway seeds, I went with some fennel seeds. I put fresh ground black pepper over everything too. The end result had my boyfriend raving and saying he would eat sauerkrout, and this dish, anytime! Thank you Michele for a wonderful recipe!

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
I made this wonderful dish for dinner tonight and was pleasantly surprised. It was delicious! I added extra lemon juice, and a couple pinches of cilantro and basil too. I made penne for the pasta. Since I had no marinated artichokes, I substituted marinated mushrooms. Yumm! I also used canned, diced tomatoes since I had no fresh ones on hand. I used the idea of adding a few slices of kalamata olives, and was glad I did. It added a nice extra taste to the dish, as well as another color too. My boyfriend loved all the flavors in this dish too and said it was a keeper! Thanks Lalena!

Kielbasa and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2004
I thought this was fantastic! (so did my room mate!) I made this for dinner. I added sliced onions, sliced mushrooms, diced red bell peppers, minced garlic(1 huge clove), and diced celery. I had no cream of mushroom soup, so used cream of chicken to which I added the milk, a couple of good shakes of cajun-style seasoning, some corn starch (to aid thickening) and about a tblsp. of marsala cooking wine. I followed the temp. and cooking time exactly. What a great dinner we had! Served it with some fresh, crusty bread and chilled merlot. Can't wait to make this again. Thanks Geneva!

Portuguese Cod Fish Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2004
John, what a great recipe, thanks for sharing! I was a bit afraid to try a fish casserole, but this turned out wonderful! I used fresh basa (Vietnamese catfish) and pretty much followed the recipe from there. Yummmmm! I served a fresh spinach salad with this and got rave reviews from my boyfriend. Thanks again John!

Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Wow, this was excellent! It was my first time trying a seafood au gratin recipe and I'm so glad I did. Like most home cooks, I kinda changed the ingredients a bit. I didn't have any crab meat or mushrooms, so I left both out. I added minced garlic to the sauce as well as diced pimiento peppers for a bit of color, also added a couple pinches of oregano, herbs de provence, and dried chives. I seasoned the shrimp and bay scallops with cracked black pepper and Old Bay seasoning. I used a Pinot Grigio for the wine because it's what I had on hand, and used an Italian six cheese blend (shredded) for the cheese topping. My guest and I both had 2nd helpings. I'll definitely make this again, thank you Jeli!

Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2004
Yummmmm! This recipe was wonderful! I simply sliced, lengthwise, my chicken breasts instead of pounding or flattening. It worked beautifully. I, too, added garlic to my mushroom saute, in addition to some fresh spinach (for added taste and vitamins). I opted to leave the nutmeg in, and thought the extra flavor was nice. I also put the whole mushroom mix in my food processor to make it easier to "spread" the mix on the chicken. My boyfriend loved it and asked me to make this again when his parents visit! Thank you Jennifer!

Tilapia Scampi

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Yumm! This was so delicious! Great recipe! Due to a few personal preferences, I added a couple pinches of dried oregano, a scant amt. of red pepper flakes, and a bit of white wine to the butter/garlic sauce. I only use margarine, but it was still an outstanding and tasty meal! I baked this for 20 minutes @350. Next time, I'll add even more lemon juice because I love it. Thank you JasnsWif for a truly delicious dining experience.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2004
Just finished eating this and had to sit down and say how delicious this recipe turned out! I added 1 minced shallot, some sliced, fresh mushrooms, and even a few sliced black olives that I wanted to use up, all around and over the chicken. I added salt-free chicken seasonings and a quick dash of sage to the mayo/cheese mixture, and for the cheese, I used half parmesan and half romano. The breasts I cooked were fairly thick, so it took about 40-45 minutes. (the last 3-4 minutes I broiled the dish to make the topping a nice golden brown) The end result was so good, my boyfriend asked for it again as soon as possible...a rarity! Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe. :)

Chicken Tetrazzini IV

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2004
This is the first time I tried making a tetrazzini recipe and I'm so glad I did! This dish was outstanding. I fully cooked the chicken(seasoned with a no-salt blend of spices)in a bit of olive oil first, removed it from the pan, then added fresh, sliced mushrooms to the skillet and sauteed them. I then deglazed the skillet with a bit of sherry while the mushrooms were still in it.(yummy) I added a bit of parmesan cheese to the sauce, as well as a dash or 2 of nutmeg, and an extra bit of sherry too. The end result was delicious! I sprinkled fresh, minced parsley over all and served. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Macadamia-Crusted Sea Bass with Mango Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2004
This recipe was just plain delicious! I used fresh Atlantic cod and substituted cashews for the macadamia nuts. The mango-cream sauce was a pure delight and I can't wait to use it on other dishes, even desserts! I was scared that the half/half would curdle, but it came out perfect for me. I peeled, seeded, and diced the fresh mango earlier in the day and sprinkled the lemon juice over the fruit and refrigerated it, then added the half/half before putting the mix in the sauce pan when I was ready to cook. Yummm! I served the fish with a side of almond/dried cranberry/parsley rice, and a fresh salad of baby spinach,arugula, and slivered carrots. Thanks for the excellent recipe!

Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
Maria, Maria! This was such a tasty delight! I scaled the recipe down to serve 2. My boyfriend and I loved this delicious meal! The only thing I "amended" for this recipe, was that I used torn, fresh, baby spinach(about 3/4 C), about a T of minced onion, and added a good sprinkle or 2 of Italian seasonings to the stuffing mix. I also used my own homemade spaghetti sauce to smother the chicken with. I served it all over some angel hair pasta (cooked "al dente", of course!)My boyfriend raved how good this meal was! Also wanted to mention how easy and quick this was to prepare! Thank you Maria!

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
I absolutely loved this recipe! It was quick and easy to prepare, and my boyfriend and I loved the taste. I only strayed from the recipe a bit by adding a bit of minced garlic(about 1/2 tsp.) to the onions while they sauteed, and I used basmati rice for a little change too. I served salmon with lemon-basil cream sauce (wonderful recipe found on this site) over the rice. The different flavors mingled beautifully! Thank you Denyse for a great recipe!
