Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I've been making a version of this for years. I got it from Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa). I use 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice and a 'glug' of white wine, plus Italian parsley. Make sure you add the garlic only after you add the lemon juice/wine. Otherwise if you saute it with the shrimp, it will burn and there is nothing worse than burned garlic. For the pasta, I have made it with angel hair, regular spaghetti, and linguine and prefer linguine over all the others. It stays separated and doesnt turn into a big pasta glob. I also add several thin slices of lemon and fresh grated parmesan for presentation. It is absolutely one of my favorite dishes to make and only takes a few minutes to cook. It is excellent! Note: dont skip the step of soaking your shrimp in the salt water. It cleans them really well resulting in very fresh tasting shrimp.

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
This is very good. My husband loves tortilla casserole, but I made a few changes that I may skip next time. I used 4 chicken breasts for just the two of us and it was 2 too many. It was yummy, but he thought it tasted too much like regular enchiladas. Next time I am going to cut back on the chicken a bit and add more torillas. All in all it was fantastic!

Zucchini e Pomodori Gratinati (Zucchini and Tomato Gratin)

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This is fantastic! So easy to put together and so fresh tasting. I have a smaller casserole pan than a 9x13, so I used 3 ripe-on-the-vine tomatoes, 3 small zucchini and 8oz of mozzarella. I layered zucchini on the bottom, followed by the cheese, and then the tomatoes topped with dried basil and parmesan. I added the garlic only in the final minute of sauteeing the zucchini so it wouldnt burn. One tip: if you remove the seeds from the tomatoes, it will eliminate the extra juice. This is so, so good and totally a keeper. Very yummy!

Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I used a lemon cake mix and made it according to the directions on the box except I added a box of instant lemon pudding mix and the juice one lemon. Then I used lemon pudding instead of vanilla with the Cool Whip for the topping. Excellent! My husband loves lemon desserts and thought this was very good. Not too sweet. Very fresh and light. Yummy!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This was amazing! I baked 4 chicken breasts w/ just a smidge of salt and pepper instead of canned chicken (which is yucky!) and chopped them up. I also used Blue Cheese dressing instead of ranch and used 4oz. of crumbled blue cheese instead of cheddar. I cooked it in a crockpot for a while and then transferred it to a warming dish for serving. It was excellent! My husband loved it. I am going to make it again on Super Bowl Sunday. A keeper.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This was very good! I sauteed two slices of bacon with the ham and also added a can of diced tomatoes and skipped the water. It turned out great. Excellent!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Excellent! I am eating it as I write (and my husband is wrapping presents in the garage!) I would do three things differently next time. 1) Pulverize the sun-dried tomotoes in the food processor into smaller pieces. 2) Drain and mop up as much oil from both the pesto and sun-dried tomatoes as possible. 3) Split it in two. You could easily make this is two smaller molds and freeze one for later. It is very good!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I first made these in my 7th grade Home Ec. class in 1974, and we called them 'Hello Dolly's'. They are great with pecans instead of walnuts, or peanut butter chips w/ salted peanuts. My Mom made them a family tradition that same year, and I cannot imagine a Christmas cookie collection without them. So yummy!

Reuben Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
This is awesome!! Absolutely wonderful. If you like Reuben sandwiches--make this!! I wish I had made this years ago. I followed the recipe to a 'T'. I used sauerkraut in a bag (Boar's Head) because it is so much better than canned. Layered the sauerkraut on top of the cubed rye, corned beef on top of that, 1000 Island dressing and the swiss. So, so good! I had leftovers for lunch today and it was fabulous. A keeper.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
Excellent! I added about 1/4 cup of Bisquick to the italian bread crumbs to add to the breading, used Kraft parmesan cheese and sprinkled a little garlic powder in there as well. I also increased the crushed garlic to 3 cloves. Very tasty and the chicken was very moist. A keeper!

Grandma's English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
I am not sure what I did wrong, but mine didnt rise at all. It tastes fantastic, but it is really flat and dense. I made the dough in a bread machine, so I wonder if that might have been the problem. I'd love any suggestions on what I did wrong. It still is excellent! I am determined to figure out what happened to mine.

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
This is very good. Super easy to make, too. My husband thought it was a tad bit salty, so next time I am going to use reduced sodium soy sauce, although we suspect the oyster sauce is also a culprit.

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This is excellent! I used wine instead of milk to add a little more flavor. One reviewer suggested using sherry and I think that would be better than just white wine. I also used Stove Top Cornbread stuffing (since I had one already in the house) and I melted the 1/2 cup butter and mixed it into the stuffing before sprinkling it in top. I didnt think there was going to be enough sauce, so I added about a half a can of cream of mushroom soup to the cream of chicken. My husband loved it--totally a keeper!

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
This is excellent! I took the advice of several reviewers and to the hamburger added taco seasoning instead of chili powder and salt, a can of RoTel tomatoes w/ green chilis, and 8oz of cream cheese. And instead of taco sauce, I used red enchilada sauce. I served this with Lime Tostidos crushed on top, shredded lettuce, sour cream and a little taco sauce. Yummy!! My husband loved it. A keeper.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
Awesome! I'm eating them as I write this. Super fun and easy to make. I love corn dogs and this is the next best thing. I've made these twice and have found using cupcake liners is the best route, since mine stuck the first time. Very tasty! A keeper!
