Tiny Chicken Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2001
11/04/06 I am adding a more updated review. These turnovers are delicious! I make these for every dinner party where finger foods are served. I have made about 15x since 2003! I am now a pro. The filling can be made the day before and refrigerated. Also, save time by using ready-made pie crust, wontons wrappers, or even phyllo! Experiment! We like the pie crust! Extra tip with the crust...roll very thin!

Red Rooster

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
This is my drink of choice when going out. As a bartender in my 20's, this was your basic cocktail. In bars and restaurants, this is called a madras. From this recipe you build many great drink recipes by adding another liquor (peach schnapps, raspberry vodka, pineapple juice)

Apricot Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
This was terrific! I actually used baby carrots and used orange preserves instead of apricot. I think the orange was perfect for this dish!

Chicken Pasta Salad with Cashews and Dried Cranberries

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I liked this salad but would definitely do differently next time. I prepared this one late night. Had put the cooked chicken, cooked pasta, grapes, and green onions in a bowl with every intention to make that night. However, I ended up going to bed early. The next night, I mixed the cole slaw & mayo ( I omitted miracle whip-instead added extra 1/4 cup mayo and 1/2 tbsp of lawry's seasoning) and added the mayo mixture to the cold pasta then added cranberries & pecans. It looked so yummy I decided to eat some then and it was delicious! However, I made this for the next day and as the recipe suggest, I let it marinate overnight, the next day it was a let down! The flavors just "fell flat". I would suggest prepping the salad, chilling overnight, then adding the dressing! Also, make sure you add the cranberries right before serving as they will turn your salad a grayish color.

Easy Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
A nice basic meat sauce. Unfortunately, I realized out half way through that I was out of tomato paste and had to use tomato sauce and it still came out tasty. I added 3 cloves of fresh garlic, fresh onions, and used whole wheat pasta.

Amatriciana

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
Delicioso! Definitely a five-star meal! I used pancetta (Italian bacon, found in your deli counter) in place of bacon and added hot Italian turkey sausage. I grew up on pasta and red sauce. We had it so much I grew sick of it. I was a little leary of all the tomatoes but I am trying to eat healthier so I gave it a go. My grandfather never made red sauce like this! Very good.

Chicken and Bowtie Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
Wow! This was very good! The original recipe needed a little kick so I added 1/2 tbsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. I used baby portabella mushrooms and added fresh spinach for color. I used the Asiago cheese and it definitely made the dish!

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
The cake was indeed sinful but was way too soft. Needed to be firmer and I chilled for 24 hours before eating. Almost impossible to serve, just collasped. Delicious though! I used oreo cookies and 3Tbsp of butter for the crust. I also had trouble with the crust sticking to the sides even though I buttered it. Thank God for the whipped cream to fix the flaws.

Cocktail Wieners II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Definitely needs adjusting! I used 2 (16 ounce) package of smokies, 8 oz cocktail and 8 oz grape jelly, they were swimming! Once I drained some of liquid out, they were yummy! ***Also, remember to dump your sausages on a paper towel to drain all the excess juice from bag, BEFORE you add them to the jelly mixture. There is alot of excess liquid in those bags!

How delicious! I roasted these hens breast down which allowed the lemon juice and rosemary to be asborbed in the breast. I will definitely use this for chicken.

Fried Plantains

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
I love fried plantains but could nevevr make them right. They always came out oily tasting. This time I follwed the last reviewers advice and used butter. It tasted like the plantains I eat in restaurants. They had a nice sweetness that what I was yearning for!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
How refreshing! I omitted the lemon juice and triple sec and subsituted peach schnapps. I did quadruple the recipe and used only 1/2 cup sugar and a whole container of frozen lemon concentrate. I used more brandy and peach schnapps than listed. I will make again.
