Fantastic Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
Really tasty, and the DH loved them too. I found the guac seasoning in the chip aisle (Emeril's brand, in a green envelope). I used ciabatta rolls (found in front of the deli case), and Sargento reduced-fat cheddar slices. We also had some 100-calorie packs of premade guacamole in the fridge, so we used one for extra burger topping. If you're watching carbs, this is just fine without the bread. The burger is very moist and flavorful, and we will be making these again. Thanks for sharing!

Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
SO SO GOOD! This frosting is perfect exactly the way the recipe is written. I did not change anything, and had no problem with the consistency; I'm wondering if the writers of the reviews indicating it was runny had allowed the butter and cream cheese to get too soft before creaming them together. I used this on white cupcakes (from the Cake Doctor cookbook), and they were just amazing. Thank you for sharing, this one's a keeper!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
My husband and I absolutely loved this recipe. I followed the suggestions, and subbed tomato sauce for the juice, and diced tomatoes for the sauce. I also used both kidney and black beans, but only because I had them both on hand. The longer it cooks, the better it is - I can't wait to have this for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe. :)

Pork Chops with Basil and Marsala

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
We absolutely love this recipe, and have made it multiple times. I stumbled upon it while searching for recipes to use up our abundance of freash basil, which is the only modification I made to the original recipe. Be sure to use thick chops, and use good marsala wine!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
This is my official go-to recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies. I have now made it twice, once with butter-flavor shortening, and once with real butter, and I definitely prefer the butter version. I did follow the suggestions of other reviewers and added 1/4 cup more of flour, 1/2 tsp of baking powder, and a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. If you use the butter-flavor shortening, do not increase the flour; the cookies will not flatten. I always bake cookies on parchment paper, so there is no issue of sticking. Most importantly, soak your raisins in a strainer in a bowl of boiling hot while you make the dough; it makes the raisins super plump and juicy. I make these and immediately bag them up for friends and coworkers; otherwise, I'll eat the entire batch! :)

Thighs on Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
This was wonderful! Based upon others' reviews, I did make the following modifications: I used boneless, skinless thighs, and sprinkled them with Adobo seasoning instead of Italian seasoning; I used two tablespoons of olive oil instead of the butter; and I made a batch of the Knorr chicken stock and used two cups of it in place of the bouillon + water. This was total comfort food, and my husband scarfed down two generous helpings. I definitely see this becoming a go-to recipe for boneless, skinless thighs!
