Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
this is sooooo good. this is the kind of food i crave and what i usually order at restaurants. i did make a few changes that would work well for the calorie conscious...first of all i used about a T of the cajun seasoning that my boyfriend makes (i think it is emeril's recipe from food tv). i sauteed the chicken in pam, removed from the pan, sauteeed about 1/2 - 3/4 c of mushrooms, 2 T of finely chopped onion, and 1/2 T of chopped garlic in pam also. removed that. added about a tablespoon of butter to the pan and scraped up all the brown bits. added 1 T of flour and cooked a couple of minutes until thick. then i used a little more than a cup of fat free half and half. let it thicken, then i dumped everything back into the sauce, added one chopped roasted red pepper, and a deseeded and chopped tomato; i doubled all the seasonings. tossed this with pasta and it was spectacular. i know this isn't a particularly diet friendly recipe, even this way, but it sure beats the restaurants version of creamy pasta and i think it tastes even better. my boyfriend LOVED it and he hates cream sauces (he also has a huge aversion to low fat/fat free recipes, but he didn't know). This made about four servings. I think it would be wonderful in the summer w/ lots of fresh veggies. may add baby spinach next time or broccoli... thank you so much for this recipe!!!

Tangy Egg Salad Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2003
very good egg salad. i too used celery salt instead of celery and i used brown mustard instead of yellow and used a little more than half the amount of mustard. i only had dried herbs, but it still was tasty. much better after the flavors have a chance to blend. i always mash the yolks with the wet ingredients and then add the chopped whites, like when making deviled eggs. i just don't like to get a big bite of yolk. thanks for the recipe.

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2003
i liked this soup. i used closer to a pound of ground beef and seasoned it really well while i was browning it. it was more like a potato soup, which i am not so crazy about, but the extras made it much better. i used velveeta in the soup and topped with shredded sharp cheddar.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2003
i give this five stars because they were incredibly easy to make and really good. i had my doubts when i was mixing them, they seemed really dry, but i added 2 tsp. of oil and 1 tsp. of vanilla and they were really yummy. i used some kind of triple fudge cake mix with chocolate chips already in it - delicious but a bit too rich. would try a plain chocolate or devil's food cake next time. maybe some heath bites...thanks kristi for a super easy recipe!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2003
surprisingly really tasty. the ingredients sound weird, but it really is full of flavor. i used garlic flavored teriyaki and marinated the chicken in half the teriyaki before i browned it. i also added the cheese, bacon, and onion during the last 10 minutes of cooking. thanks vicki!!!
