Apricot Chicken I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2002
I have been making this recipe since the early 1970's. It's a family favorite and I often make it with whole chicken cut into eighths or just boneless, skinless chicken thighs for pot luck dinners and as my contribution to parties. I recommend if you can find it to use Wishbone RED Russian dressing. Much less sweet taste than the pink Russian dressing. I live in Morris County, Denville, NJ and the Key Foods Store has this brand. I have recently found the Wishbone Red Russian dressing in the local Shop-Rite markets. I also use Lipton Onion Soup Mix. I have tried other brands and found them too salty or to intense taste of dried onions.

Started with this basic recipe, added black cherry gelatin (Jello). Added celery, didn't have Granny Smith used Gala apples and used Splenda instead of sugar...turned out terrific. Daughter in law and I absolutely loved it.

Seafood Cioppino

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I have been making the same version of Cioppino for nearly 40 years. Because of the expense I have found many shortcuts...using frozen mussels, scallops, shrimp, lobster tails, any firm flesh fish. I've made it for anniversary parties for friends and they raved about it for a long, long time...hinting to make it again. Made it just for HB for his birthday dinner and was he surprised. This recipe is a close to a San Francisco restaurant as you can get. Love it, Love it.

Potato Chowder Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I just finished preparing this soup. bland, bland ugh. Added salt, pepper, italian spices, basil nothing seems to help. Won't be making this again. Hello again...looked up another potato chowder soup and reviewers recommended rosemary. I ground the rosemary finely and added it to the soup. Yummo!! That did it..I'll be making this again and again. DH had two bowls..he loved it. He's a big soup eater.

Coffee Shake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
Enjoyed the coffee shake, tasted just like coffee shake at Starbucks. I modified recipe as I am a diabetic and WW member. Used 1 packet of WW French Vanilla powder, sugar free French Vanilla CoffeeMate cream, and Splenda instead of sugar. I've also used Hershey's sugar free chocolate syrup instead of the CoffeeMate. YUMMIE.

Sweet And Sour Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
I have been making this recipe for almost 50 years. 2 boxes of onion soup mix is way too much. Bake uncovered if the sauce is too thin, or just thicken the sauce with a slurry (flour or cornstarch). My family loved the extra sauce over rice or noodles. I only use thighs because breast meat is too dry. I also make extra to freeze for another day. My DH and children (when they lived at home) liked this dish better the second time around.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2002
This tastes just like the entree ordered at a local restaurant. I don't have to order it anymore at $13. Easy, inexpensive and definitely a keeper. My husband is not fond of mushrooms, but ate every bit. I altered the recipe as a result of reading the reviews. Half the oil and butter, more mushrooms. Took less than 1/2 hour from start to finish. Thanks Lisa, the best wishes for a happy holiday to you and your family.

Broken Glass Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
This recipe was a must for my sister (rip). It was my sister's signature dessert. She was asked to make this for every family event. Did not make a graham cracker topping. Was not needed. But, instead of a 9x13 pan, it was made in a mold, when she needed to unmold it, placed bottom of mold into warm water until it was able to unmold onto a plate. Placed a plate on open side of mold, turned it over to unmold onto the plate. Spectacular! Nobody has attempted to make it.

Cindy's Tasty Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2003
I never thought to use the ingredients for chicken wings, I use the ingredients for cut-up chicken parts. Instead of the Catalina salad dressing, if you can find Wishbone RED Russian Dressing, it will give a less sweet taste than the Catalina Salad Dressing. This is a quick and very tasty chicken dish. I get rave reviews and requests for the recipe whenever I bring this to a party.

Shrimp Scampi V

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Just read some of the reviews...how can reviewers say they did not like the recipe when the reviewers change the recipe. You can't review an opinion if you don't make it correctly. I followed a few of the reviews that said the wine was too much. I cut back on the wine and it was wonderful. I only use whole wheat pasta for health reason. Found it to be pretty good.

Baked Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2003
I have made this recipe for many years using Wishbone Red Russian dressing (not as sweet as french dressing) using chicken thighs. I found the breast meat too dry. This recipe is always requested for "potluck dinners". Yesterday, I did not want to use the oven, so I made it on top of the stove and it was just as good as oven baked. I did the same as if I was going to bake it. Placed the chicken thighs in one layer in a large skillet, added ingredients and simmered for 45 minutes. Excellent!!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
I lost this recipe and so happy to have found it again. Much better than restaurant FO soups. I have been very disappointed that some ofour local bistros (people say they are great) do not live up to the hype. The the ingredients, wine and gruyere cheese are the key to this soup.

Beefaroni

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2005
Although this sounds good, the recipe as it was made in the early 1970's for our family it was called Skillet Macaroni and Beef. All prepared and cooked in one skillet. The first part in the directions are the same...then remove the meat from the skillet and add 1/2 pound elbow macaroni, minced onion and chopped green pepper until onion is soft, (if needed, add a little oil) return meat to skillet and for 1-1/2 lbs ground beef or ground turkey add 16 ounces of tomato sauce, water, salt and pepper, 1-1/2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until macaroni is cooked to taste. Yum-Yum...children loved it.
