Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
My 11 yr old daughter made this for her Spanish class. It turned out great. She followed the recipe exactly. It is very rich and yummy. She was so proud of herself for being able to make this without my help. Next time we will serve it with fresh strawberries on top.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Used 4 large chicken breasts and cut recipe in half. Used ground ginger since I didn't have fresh. I did include the red pepper flakes and paprika but didn't have the cayenne. I added all the ingredients into a large gallon size ziploc baggie sealed it, and squished to mix. Then added the 4 breasts, sealed it, laid it flat so breasts didn't overlap on cookie tray, and put it in fridge. After 2 hrs I flipped bag over and let set 2 more hours. Grilled breasts on stove top grill about 10 minutes each side and boiled leftover marinade for at least 10 minutes. Then added about 2 tbsp corn bread mix (didn't have corn starch) to thicken it up. Plated it up on white rice and spooned sauce marinade over the top of the chicken. Added a side of grilled bell pepper to complete the dinner. Very tasty with a little kick to it. My husband loved it and the bell pepper seemed the perfect veggie to go with it. Leftovers heated up well the next day but seemed to have gotten spicier.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
I doubled the sauce but didn't double the garlic or pepper. After making it I think I should have. It had a very mild flavor and could have used more pepper and garlic. I used vermouth instead of white wine. I didn't have fresh parsley or basil so I used a tablespoon of italian seasoning. I used shrimp that were cooked and deveined. I served it with a salad and hot rolls. Yum! Will save this as a favorite.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Used canned and frozen grilled chicken strips. While rice was cooking (1 cup) I sauteed half a large yellow onion and 4 minced garlic cloves in olive oil. Then added 2 handfuls of frozen grilled chicken strips. Let those warm up a bit and sprinkled a little chile powder, garlic salt, and pepper over them. Added mild and medium salsa (1 cup each) to the same pan. Stirred and added both soups. Then added one 12.5 oz can of chicken (which was perfect because there was chicken in every bite). Mixed in cooked rice and spread in 9x13 greased glass pan. Sprinkled Mexican Cheddar Jack cheese and Mozzarella cheese when half the mixture was in dish. Put rest of chicken mix in then topped with remaining 2 cups of cheese. Baked uncovered about 15 min. Turned out very yummy. Has a little kick but not enough to scare off my kids. Would be great with a side iceberg salad. I could see this being a hit as a potluck dish.

Broiled Chicken Breasts with Herbs, Carrots, and Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
We are chicken lovers and this went over well with my husband and 3 kids. I used Italian Seasoning instead of the fresh rosemary, thyme and sage because I didn't have it on hand. I sprinkled it over the breasts and veggies (of which I added sliced bell pepper and onions) while in the pan. Drizzled EVOO over all and sprinkled garlic salt and ground pepper. This is instead of inserting garlic into the chicken. Squeezed half a lemon over chicken. Placed pan about 8 inches from heat source, cooked 10 min and then flipped chicken and seasoned the other side in same manner as the first side. Cooked an additional 12-16 minutes. They were thick breasts and I kept checking them with the instant therm. so I didn't overcook them. As soon as all four breasts read 165 I declared them done. My husband didn't even use any salt or pepper to season what he dipped up. Said it had great flavor already. A previous review said the seasoning slide off and left a bland flavorless chicken. That didn't happen to my dish in the slightest and the chicken was very moist, not dry. Love Love how quick and easy this dish was to fix and cook.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
I made a lactose-free version using skim lactose-free milk and lactose free margerine. I used long grain rice (leftover in fridge). My 1/3 cup sugar was a rounded scoop to make it a little sweeter. I would stir the pot and walk away but towards the end of the 20 minutes I had to stay right there stirring it to prevent it from sticking. To prevent egg scrambling, I did as others suggested, and added 2 spoonfuls of the hot mix from the pot to the egg/milk. Once I stirred that well, I added it into the pot. Since I had used margerine when I originally cooked the rice, I left it out. As for the vanilla, I added it to the egg/milk part of the recipe. The end result is tasty but I can really taste the vanilla. I think I will use a tiny bit less next time.

Kelsey's Cheesy Bacon Breasts

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Made this for my family. Very easy and quick. I did no measuring whatsoever. I didn't precook the chicken. Laid 5 chicken breasts on foil lined pan. Put a little pepper and garlic salt on them. Then squirted BBQ all over each breast followed by a line of mustard. Laid 1 1/2 slices of precooked bacon on each then baked in the oven for 30 min. Sprinkled cheddar cheese then baked for another 10 min (thick breasts) Served with rice and artichokes. My 3 kids, 5, 9, and 13, loved this dish. They ate every bite on their plates. My husband enjoyed it too.
