Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
FANTASTIC! This was a great baked chicken. I changed some things to make it even more flavorful for us. For the breadcrumb mixture I substituted "pepperidge farm herb stuffing" instead of plain bread crumbs and also added 1 tsp oregano along with the basil. I used 4 large chicken breasts and used 4 tbsp olive oil and 2 cloves garlic. I also sprinkled a little salt and pepper on the chicken breasts before dipping them into the oil/garlic mixture. Oh to make this easier, use 2 pie pans for the dipping. It's so much easier than a bowl.. unless the chicken breasts are smaller or tenders. I did not think there was too much breadcrumb mixture as other reviewers said. I did have a little bit of each leftover (oil and breadcrumb), so I first drizzled what was left of the oil on the prepared chicken breasts in the pan, and then sprinkled what was left of the breadcrmb mixture over this. Then I sprinkled all of this with some garlic powder. It took about 40 minutes for the chicken to be done. It was SO MOIST and SO FLAVORFUL. Better and SO MUCH EASIER than my usual parmensan chicken recipe. WILL MAKE AGAIN AND AGAIN. Thanks!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
This was excellent but I made some changes to help it. First, I salt and peppered the steaks and then placed them in the pan in a little bit of olive oil (1-2 tbsps) and browned them on med-hi for 1 minute both sides. I put the 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar in a sauce pan and 1/4 cup sherry (just because i didn't have red wine on hand today) and added 2 cloves minced garlic and 1 heaping tbsp brown sugar. I let this simmer while the steaks were browing. Then I poured the sauce over the steaks and turned heat to low and covered. I cooked my husband's filet for 4 minutes each side to be medium, but I like my with less red and cooked my 6 minutes each side. The sauce reduced perfectly and it became a glaze and was wonderful. Make sure you don't let it reduce too much or it will be a burnt. I liked it with the sherry so much I don't know if i will bother trying with the red wine or not. It had a wonderful flavor. I would definitely only make with garlic added. PERFECT... we felt like we had just eaten in a steak restaurant!

Strawberry Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
This was fantastic frosting. I made this cake for a 4th of July party and used DRIED EGG WHITES instead of raw egg whites. This is a MUCH safer option if you are going to be feeding this to the elderly, little children or pregnant, as raw eggs whites can have salmonella. Anyhow to test, I made 2 batches of frosting: one with raw egg whites and one with the dried egg whites and had my husband do a taste test to make sure I was still getting the same outcome. We both agreed that they both tasted exactly the same. I made my own yellow cake and also put sliced strawberries between the layers on top of the filling. YUMMY! I put raspberries and blueberries on top for the red and blue color. SUPER EASY FROSTING TO MAKE! I agree with previous review that if you are using a kitchenaid mixer, you don't need to mix for 20 minutes. Mine was done in under 10 and very very fluffy. Turned out beautiful!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2004
SCRUMPTIOUS!! Absolutely incredible pot pie! I made it tonight and had to rate this tonight it was THAT GOOD. Best pot pie I have ever had. My 2 year old loved it too. She was licking the gravy spoon before I could even pour it all into the pie. I boiled the veggies in chicken broth and made my own pie crust. I also brushed with egg white. I added thyme to the flour/milk base with the other seasonings. It was rich and creamy. It was wonderful. Definitely will make again and again!

World's Best Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2004
BEST FUDGE! I made this for the holidays and I had to keep making it again and again. Everyone kept asking for it. I definitely will be making this recipe for years to come. It was SOOOO CREAMY and SUPER EASY TO MAKE! I added more peanut butter than it called for because i wanted more peanuty taste. I added about 15 or 16 oz total. Also have EVERYTHING ready before you start. Pan greased, fluff, peanut butter and flour already out and measured. There is NO TIME once the hot mixture is ready. And make it all in a BIG pot not a 2 qt or anything small ilke that. It really puffs up and you need a big stock pot. Thank you!!

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
My family really like this. This is the closest I've found to Hoggy's BBQ Restaurant. Very moist and cakelike. I changed it a little by using buttermilk and also added 1 cup of canned corn. My 2 year old and 4 year old couldn't get enough. I only used a little under a 1/2 cup of sugar, but I think 2/3 cup would have been fine. Thanks for a great cornbread recipe.

Easy Elegant Skillet Chicken Supreme

Reviewed: May 3, 2005
This was ok and has potential but lacked flavor. It needed something. I will try again and try some herbs. Tasted just a little too much like just white wine and flour. I think it should be a little more savory.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
This was OK to get started but not much flavor at all. Needed a lot of doctoring. I did some changing and it turned out wonderful. I used chicken broth instead of water and used more than 6 cups. I also added additional seasonings asuch as bay leaf, garlic powder, peppercorns, etc. and added vegetables such as carrots, celery. I added the pasta when we were going to eat in an hour so it just cooked for the last hour. And I thickened it up also.

Drop Sugar Cookies II

Reviewed: May 3, 2005
I didn't care for this at all. It tasted like a cross between bread and yellow cake. Was not very sweet at all. After I tried one I didn't even bother baking the next tray of cookies.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2004
WONDERFUL! I was trying to find a morning muffin that was also healthy and not completly white flour. We all loved this one. I didn't add the chopped apple since I have a 19 month old and a 3 year old... I was worried that there would be too many noticeable things in the muffin with the carrots, apples and raisins and they wouldn't eat it. They ate it up so I may add apple next time. I'll definitely make again. Thanks for a great muffin!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
I found this to be just OK. Will not be making again though. It wasn't bad, I ate it but nothing that made me say 'Mmmm..' Still looking for that great lasagna recipe. My husband liked it this better than I did. But still it wasn't a favorite for either of us. I also had to add more sauce.

Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2004
YUMMY! This was a perfect cake to make with my 2 1/2 year old daughter. It was easy since we didn't have to ice it. And it was WONDERFUL! I would even love it without the chocolate chips. It was very moist and yummy. I sprinkled the top with sugar and cinnamon. We couldn't stop at one piece. Our family ate the entire cake in 2 days. Oh boy.. definitely will be making this one again. Thanks!

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I made this one morning when we were looking for something different than the traditional eggs and toast. It was wonderful! I didn't have any potatoes that day and it still was wonderful. I can't wait to make with potatoes next time as I'm sure it will be even better. Thanks for a great breakfast!

Slow Cooker Pepper Steak II

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
I found this to be OK but lacking in flavor. Nothing terrific that would make me want to make it again. Just so so. Definitely did not need the extra salt. There is enough with the soy sauce.

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2004
I perfer my old standby stirfry compared to this. I even added other ingredients to this but still won't make again. I added red pepper flakes, fresh grated ginger, lots of stir fry veggies (mushrooms, bean sprouts, brocolli etc). If you want a really good orange stirfry recipe try "Crispy Orange Beef" subimitted by BEC. It is absolutely FANTASTIC.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
These were terrific! I needed them for dinner right then so I didn't refrigerate or bake. I just whipped them up and served them. I only added a little (less then 1/2 cup) sour cream because I was afraid since I wasn't refrigerating overnight that it might overpower them. We loved the onion flavor too! They turned out creamy and great. My husband loved them! And even my very picky 2 year old and my 10 month old loved them. Next time, I will try the recipe and make overnight just to see because it would be convenient to make ahead.. I just don't always know what I'm making the night before. Thanks!

Chili Seasoning Mix II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2004
Really enjoyed this. Never made my own chili spice before and will use this from now on. It was a little 'hot' for our tastes.. with so much red pepper so i halved the red pepper and it still was almost too spicy .. so I will go even a little less on the pepper next time. Also did not add the flour. Thanks for a great recipe!
