Spicy Mexican Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
This is one of my favorite "I don't have time to cook" meals. It is so easy to throw together espcially on those busy weekdays. We use ranch beans and what ever lettuce I have on hand.

Pizza Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
This is the best "make ahead" recipe for all working moms! Made it the night before and added all the ingreidents plus all the pizza veggies, mushrooms, red bell pepper, onion, black olives, parmesean cheese, and some crushed red pepper. My husband and 2 year old devoured it so I be adding this to my busy week day meal rotation.

Cajun Grilled Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This was a nice twist on traditional grilled corn. I did however husk my corn, rub butter all over and sprinkle the cajun seasoning onto it, and then wrapped it up in foil. Mine took about 45 minutes on the grill so plan ahead so it can be done when you take your meat off the grill.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This was perfect. I did let it marinade all day but next time it really needs to sit over night to get the full effect of the flavors. I did double the marinade but decreased the soy sauce, which with the extra honey and soy made the best flavor combo. I paired this with the Garlic Parmesan Orzo from this site. This will definitely be one of my top grilling marinades this summer!

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
Wow I can't believe this dosen't have more reviews. This is so amazing and easy! I paired it with the Key West Chicken and it was a hit with the family. I did decrease the butter and omitted the parsely (didn't have any)and added some sweet onion. This will definitely be one of my new side dishes to serve.

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Sorry we just didn't care for this one. I think the Spicy Bean Salsa from this site is a much better bean dip and suits our taste better.

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
This was amazing!! I think next time I will add less oil because it seemed a little heavy. Sereved on romaine, with dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, purple onion, and feta cheese. Not a drop left in the bowl.

Oven Fries

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Made these tonight to go with our grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. The sugar adds the right touch. I did use garlic salt on half and cajun seasoning on the other half. Even my picky 2 year old ate some dipped in ketchup! Great alternative to the deep fried version.

Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I think this was the easiest and tastiest cake I have made in a long time. It was so moist and I love the pineapple topping. I am going to try it with some coconut next time for a summer tropical taste.

The Best Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
This was so tasty and good! I omitted the sprouts and seasame seeds. I added some garlic powder to the avocado and used cheddar cheese. Don't forget the ranch (I prefer the kind you mix with mayo and buttermilk) it really brings all the flavors together.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
What a great and easy week night meal. I pounded my chicken breast down so they would cook faster and skipped the whole flour step. I did add a onion with the mushrooms. I used the whole can of chicken broth and thickened it up with some corn starch. I think that really gave the sauce a nice sweet flavor and the balsamic vinegar didn't overwhelm the flavor.

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I used some leftover spaghetti sauce and they turned out great. A good way to eat your veggies, even my picky 2 year old a few bites!

Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
These were so great! I cooked my chicken in the crockpot with a jar of salsa. I mixed the shredded chicken with some onions and placed it into my steamed corn tortillas. I placed the tortillas in a wet paper towel and microwaved them for a minuted. They were soft and I had no probelm with breaking. I didn't fry but brushed them with olive oil and baked them until crispy. Sereved with queso, quacamole, and sour cream. This a fun Saturday night meal that was a great alternative to eating out.

Kicked Up Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
This was a really good alternative to the regular mac and cheese recipes. I did as other reviews suggested and added more noodles (about 3 cups) and followed the recipe as stated. I did omitt the bread crumbs. I did follow another reviewers suggestion and added a pound of ground beef cooked with onion, garlic, and seasoning salt. Combined the beef, macaroni, and cheese sauce in a casserole dish, sprinkled the rest of the pepper jack cheese on top and baked for about 20 min. This took me about the same about of time to cook some hambuger helper, and it was much tastier. I will be adding this onto my quick weekdays meal list.

Ham and Swiss Stromboli

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
What an easy and great tasting sandwich. I made Jay's Signature Pizza dough and rolled it out in a big rectangle. I layered the swiss chesse, ham, sauteed onion and garlic, and then the bacon. Did the loaf in a quick braid style and cooked until golden brown. It was so yummy we ate the whole thing in one evening!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
This is the most requested dip for any gathering. Be careful with the garlic salt because the dressing has plenty. Also the addition of cilantro is a must. Serve with tortilla chips.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This soup was perfect!! Even my picky 2 year old goobled it down. I did cook my chicken in the crockpot with lots of pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder and some water, and then added the left over broth from the crockpot to the soup to cut down on some of the canned chicken broth. I will be making this often!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
I did scale this down to 12 servings. It was good but not my favorite dressing recipe. But some it could be I followed others advice and cut down on the red vingar. It also seemed to be really heavy with the oregano, and basil. So I am going to play around with the amount of spices and the vinegar. I think this would be great on a salad with lots of feta cheese, purple onion, and black olives. So I am going to give it another try.

Brownie Torte

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
This was amazing. I couldn't believe that I actually cooked something so decant, that really was little effort. I did follow another reviewers advice and gave the batter a stir about 10 min. after it was placed in the oven. The whole cake was so moist. Do not skip out on the glaze, that is what gives the cake another level of richness. This was the perfect ending to our romantic Valentines dinner.
