Chicken a la King I
We thought this recipe was a keeper for sure! Very hearty comfort food! I know some get very critical when one changes a recipe then rates it, but, after reading MANY reviews I made several small changes that worked for us. The method is basically the same just changed and/or omitted some ingredients. 1) cooked up some boneless skinless ckn thighs & breasts sprinkled with some season salt & garlic powder in oven @ 375 for about 25 min. 2) used 1 large tub fresh sliced mushrooms & sauteed them with 2 finely chopped shallots & 2 cloves garlic, pressed--omitted green pepper entirely per lots of reviews. Plus it just didn't sound right! 3) only used about 1/4-1/3 c. flour 4) used 1 c. half-n-half & 1/2 c. 1% milk & added 2 T. dry sherry 5) used 1 1/4-1 1/2 c. ckn broth--use 1 1/4 c. 1st then the rest to thin out sauce to desired consistency, if needed 6) used about 1-1 1/2 c. frozen peas in lieu of green pepper, omitted pimento since almost every review I read said they omitted. Added 1/2 jar coarsely chopped roasted red peppers instead--YUM! Added the peas, chicken and peppers at the same time at the end. Served over hot buttered egg noodles--Yep, it was good! Will definitely make again

Pasta Pomodoro
We really liked this dish! After reading many reviews I decided to double the sauce (sort of) except the balsamic vinegar. I used 4 C. fresh roma tomatoes, maybe 2-2 1/2 C. ckn broth, kept 2 T. balsamic as original recipe cuz it's VERY strong/tangy, 10 cloves of garlic (we like garlic), a VERY small onion & just a dash of red pepper. I needed to add a little salt, too. Everything else the same (I think). I needed to simmer for about 15-20 min. so it would cook down and not be so "soupy". Added toasted pine nuts at the end--YUM!! NOTE: Next time I will make sauce 1st then cook pasta. Right after draining I'll add to sauce. My angel hair was completely stuck together since it sat & could only use about 80% of it. Most will have to tweak to their liking. Will definitely make again!!

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups
Made these last night & they were a hit with the whole family!! The only reason I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5, is because after reading many reviews I made these changes: 2 lbs. turkey (after reading reviews I realized there was too many veggies to meat ratio), 2 pressed garlic cloves, 2 eggs, 3 T. Worc, 2 T. Dijon, S/P & 3/4 C. Italian bread crumbs (not a fan of couscous). I had to cook for 45-50 min. as well. This is a wonderful base recipe to tweak to your liking!! Will DEFINITELY make again--thx!!!!
