Spence's Pesto Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Did everything as stated except added some onion and cooked the chicken for only three minutes or so before adding other ingredients. It was a lot more mellow than I expected. Hubby loved it. A little too greasy/olive oily for me, but I still enjoyed it. I think the parmesan cheese was the star ingredient though as far as flavor is concerned.

Lemon Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
These cookies are yummy. With this frosting they are superb! 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup shortening, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 tbsp milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla. Warm butter to soften then cream together with shortening (I use an organic non-hydrogenated one), slowly add sugar. Then add milk and vanilla and whip (I just use a fork but if you have a nice mixer it would probably be easier).

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
Hubby and I are not big meatloaf eaters, but thought I'd give it a shot. It was pretty good! I made some modifications based on other users' reviews. 1. Used ground chicken. 2. Chopped a little yellow bell pepper and sauteed it with the onions before adding to the mix. 3. Added about 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar and 1/4 cup ketchup into the mix. 4. Increased cracker crumbs to 1 cup. Everything else I left the same.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I'm giving this 4 stars because I think it would have been great if I'd done the recipe exactly as called for, but because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, I used whole wheat flour, 1 % milk and a 8 by 11 pan. I only baked it 30 minutes but it came out very dry. I'd give it 3 stars for the way I made it. I think I should have cut down the baking time since I used a larger pan. It tasted yummy though and if I microwaved individual pieces before serving it helped to soften it up. Next time I'm going to try it in a cupcake pan (so my 4 year old will at least try it!) use buttermilk, and cut down the baking time. UPDATE: Still didn't have buttermilk but used a tablespoon of lemon juice as others suggested, used half whole wheat and half regular flour and made in cupcake pan. I cooked them for about 15 minutes and they turned out great. My picky boys still prefer the texture of Marie Callendars cornbread mix, but I think these are much tastier!

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Yummy! I wasn't completely keen on the seasoning, but I loved how well the bread stayed on compared to our usual way, and the crispiness of it was perfect. I think I would use plain bread crumbs instead of seasoned ones next time and cut back on the garlic a bit (original poster said it was supposed to be 2 tbls not tsp, but I think next time I'd try tsp). We cut up chicken into large pieces to be more like chicken fingers and made a creamy gravy from the drippings.

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
These were awesome with this yummy alfredo sauce on top of linguini and veggies.... AR's Alfredo Sauce II. I didn't see the author's comments and added the oil into the mix but they turned out fine. I used regular soft cream cheese, Italian style bread crumbs (since I had them on hand), cut the Italian herbs in half (since they were in the breadcrumbs already), and refrigerated the mixture for a few hours before making them into balls. My husband doesn't care for ground meat of any kind but he went for seconds on these and gave me the go-ahead to add this recipe to our regular rotation. I saved some of the mixture to make Chicken burgers the next day as one user suggested. Can't wait to try them that way, too!

Baked Carrots

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I read the other reviews before making this dish and made sure I split the baby carrots in half before placing in dish (because the batch I had on hand seemed rather thick) and then sprinkled them with garlic salt before pouring on the broth. I thought they were yummy!

Slow Cooker Cheese Steaks

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
My husband and I found this dish rather bland. I was a bit concerned about this seeing that it called for no seasoning on the meat or the veggies, so I even added salt and pepper to the grilled veggies. We also used pepper jack cheese and used the leftover broth for dipping but overall the sandwiches just seemed lacking in flavor. If I were to make this again, I would brown the meat first with some garlic salt and pepper and maybe even some flour and then place in crock pot. I find from making roasts in the past with tri tip that this tends to seal in the juices. Definitely found 3.5 hours was plenty of time for the meat. It was still pretty tender (not chewy thankfully) but already dry and cooked through. I think the leftovers are going to make some awesome fajitas tomorrow, though!
