Caprese Burger

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Delicious! Served on Hawaiian sandwich buns with a little mayo. For anyone wary to open up a whole can of tomato paste for just a small amount, just divide up the rest into small sandwich baggies in small amounts (1 tablespoon each ought to do it) and then toss all those baggies into a quart sized freezer bag labeled and dated and freeze for later use. They'll defrost fairly quickly under running warm water.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Cooked canned biscuits separately and poured the sauce on top. Delish! Not very healthy at all though. Thanks for making me gain a couple pounds CVERNSMITH! ;)

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!

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!

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).

Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Um... yum! OK, I admit it, I didn't follow the recipe to the letter. After reading the reviews, I made some modifications. I cubed, floured and seasoned the chicken and browned it a little first then added about 3 cloves of fresh minced garlic for about 30 seconds and then added the rest of the veggies, including chopped mushrooms. I used Italian stewed tomatoes, just a few dashes of the garlic powder since I had fresh garlic in there already, Italian seasoning instead of just oregano, and about 1/2 tsp of sugar to balance the tartness of the tomatoes. Next time, I will cut back on the pepper since I had salted and peppered the chicken and it was plenty spicy. Served it with pasta and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Will definitely make again!

Baked Oatmeal I

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
Yum! I used steel cut oats since I didn't have quick oats on hand so the texture wasn't very kid friendly, but it tasted just like an oatmeal cookie. I will only make it as a special treat because of all the sugar content!

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Yummy. Still got soggy on bottom even after following other reviewers' suggestions, but the flavor made up for it. I forgot to drizzle leftover butter but it was fine.

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
I cut this recipe in half and can't imagine it fitting in a 9x13 pan with the whole amount. I used a slightly smaller pan, but next time I will use the 9x13 with the recipe cut in half. I found it called for too much butter, milk and salt. A little less all around and I think this will turn out great.

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Yummy! Added salt, pepper, garlic powder, used 1.25 lbs of ground turkey (because that's how much came in the package I bought), refrigerated for a couple of hours, used cupcake cups (the foil kind), and topped with a mix of BBQ sauce & ketchup. It made a whopping 24 "cupcakes," so next time I'd freeze some uncooked or just cut the recipe in half. Hubby didn't care for it much but he's a picky eater and doesn't like ground meat or zucchini. Kids take after him and wouldn't even try any. More for me!

Cheesy Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
Pretty good. Found that this recipe relied too heavily on the parmesan cheese for flavor. My husband doesn't care for it too much so I went lightly on it for his sake and it was bland. I should have added salt to make up for it. I used Italian chicken sausage which I mostly cooked before throwing in the vegetables rather than the other way around. I'd make again with some modifications. Mushrooms would have made this dish better but I forgot to buy some.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
I just sprinkled on herbs instead of putting as much as called for and minced about 4 to 5 garlic cloves (which was plenty). I followed another reviewers advice about 30 minutes for potatoes in the oven followed by 5 minutes covered asparagus and 5 minutes uncovered. I didn't use as much salt as called for and it was still too salty for my tastes. I would cut it down to maybe 1 tsp total or less.

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
This was easy and had a great flavor but it calls for too much butter (I didn't even use the whole amount stated and it was dripping with fat/grease, especially leftover) and way too much garlic. I'd cut both in half next time and it'd probably get 5 stars from me then.

Slow-Cooked Steak Fajitas

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
The flavor was good, but definitely ended up being more like shredded beef burritos than fajitas. Still it was easy and yummy.

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.

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.
