Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
Made this for dinner and it came out great! Just made slight changes. It was only two of us so I changed the serving size to two. I did as others suggested and saute then garlic and butter, then sprinkled with dried parsley (didn't have fresh). I used a half tbsp. more garlic than suggested. I used lemon concentrate and coated each tilapia filet. I then brushed the garlic butter over each filet, then sprinkled pepper and salt on. I cooked in foil at 400 for about 15 minutes and served with lemon wedges. Boyfriend approved! :) Will use again!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
This is a great and easy sugar cookie recipe! I followed exactly as written except I used whole wheat flour and they came out so good! They are a little crunchy on the outside and really soft on the inside. Next time I use this recipe, I will use white flour. Our cookies were pretty thick so it took about 10 minutes. I was afraid I would have to refrigerate the dough because most of the recipes I've seen say to do that, but these didn't need it, which on a weeknight worked well.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
These cookies came out really good! I changed the servings to 52 and used vanilla instead of brandy. Other than that, followed exactly as written. My cookies only took 7-8 minutes. I made the first two dozen just as chocolate chip because I wasn't sure how the cranberries ones would turn out. I added a half a cup of fresh cranberries to the remaining batter. The cranberry cookies were definitely better! They tasted so good with the chocolate chips, but they had a nice light, fluffy taste. This is going in my recipe box!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This is one of my favorite soups I've ever made! I followed exactly as written. The recipe called for two bouillon cubes, but I only had one and I think that was enough. I also topped with shredded cheese and one chopped scallion for each bowl. This was so good. I will definitely be making this again!

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
One of the best recipes I've tried in a long time, yet so simple! I did what most others did and added more toppings. I had some leftover garlic lime chicken that I shredded and mixed with taco seasoning. I tossed the lettuce, tomato, and onions and put in two bowls. I topped with red beans and corn (I did not add the other ingredients to the corn mixture). I added a few more slices of tomato and avacado to the sides. Then added the chicken, topped with cheese, and some taco shells broken up to the top. , garnished with cilantro. It was soooo good. I served it with a side of sour cream that we did not use, nor did we use dressing. Will be making this again soon!

25-Minute Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I made this for dinner and I should have known better than using chicken broth would make it too soupy, rather than a nice thick casserole. The only difference I would really make is I will use cream of chicken next time, then I think it would be really good!! I made as written, but added 1/2 cup frozen corn, fresh basil, and chopped onion, oregano, and parsley. The chicken I used was leftover mango amaretto chicken I made. The seasonings were good, just too liquidy so I was basically eating dry noodles and veggies. Will try as said in the beginning next time.

A Pad Thai Worth Making

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
This recipe IS really worth making! :) I made as written, except with a few changes. First, I could not find oyster sauce, so I just omited that. Second, my bf does not like anything spicy, so I didn't add the chili sauce either (I just used spicy sauce on mine). Also, between going to two stores, they only had 3 packs of bean sprouts (8 oz. I think) and 2 looked bad, so I only bought one, but next time I will definitely add more. I did not add shrimp. I made as written, and it came out so good. My bf ate all his and said it was as good as a Thai restaurant! I will be making this again.

2-Step Inside-Out Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Made this for dinner and it was so quick and good! I basically followed as written; however, I had an extra quarter cup chicken soup that I wantd to use up. I also added in some pepper, chopped onion, and parsley. I served the biscuits on the side and added some cheese to the top of mine. It was a great recipe that did not need a lot of prep or time. Definitely a go to recipe.

Vermicelli Noodle Bowl

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
I made this for dinner last weekend when we had my bf's parent's over. It was nice because I didn't spend all day preparing the meal. It really is light and fresh. I grow my own mint and basil so that worked well for this recipe! The only differences were, I added scallions as well which really added to the flavor. I also made chicken too because my bf was afraid it wouldn't be enough (he was way off on that-my bf's dad even commented that it was so good, it didn't even need meat). Also, I didn't cut my cucumber into matchsticks because I don't know how to do that. Also, I don't know what diakon radishes are, so I used regular ones. Every bite my bf's dad took he went "mmm" so I knew it was good! It was a bit too fishy for me, so I didn't really use any sauce on mine, so I may try a different sauce next time. Definitely worth trying! Perfect time of year for it!

Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
I made this for dinner tonight and I'm glad I did! I just made a few changes. It was only two of us, so I changed to 4 servings for leftovers. I used some frozen meatballs (that I broke up) sauteed with onion, garlic, oregano, basil, and parsley. In a bowl, I mixed sauce, about a cup of diced tomatoes, parm cheese, about half cup of shredded cheese, some more parsley, oregano, and oregano, the cooked pasta, and the meat. I did not use mushrooms because I don't like them. I then topped with the remaining shredded cheese! It came out so good, my bf really liked it too!

Apple-Raspberry Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
I made this recipe for dessert tonight for Father's Day and everyone loved it! I basically followed the recipe as written, but like most have said, I added half cup of brown sugar to the fruit mixture and half cup to the topping mixture. Only problem was, it was a bit too sweet. I may only add a quarter cup to the fruit next time and half cup to the topping. Also, I'd like to try fresh raspberries. Last, I'd like to double the servings, since it was six adults and I think my brother could have probably ate the whole crisp himself. :) Thank you for a different dessert to make.

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
Followed this basic recipe to make chicken pot pie for dinner. I only made a few changes and this came out super good. I used two chicken breasts and two thighs that I've been trying to use up. I used two cans of cream of chicken since that's all I had. I also don't have thyme so instead, I mixed in a tsp. of garlic, 1 tbsp. of parsley, a dash of rosemary, and 1/2 tsp. of oregano. I used two bags (12oz. each) of mixed frozen veggies. I cooked this as directed and it came out really flavorful. Definitely will make again.

American Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Made this for dinner, it was really good! I'm not one for potato salads normally, but I made sausage and I had some potatoes I wanted to use, so I decided to make it. It was only the two of us (I only had 5 potatoes) so I changed the serving size to 2, but I think I changed the amount of ingredients for 4. I used 5 potatoes, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup mayo, 2 slices of onion, no pepper, two stalks of celery and some sprinkles of black pepper.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Made this for St. Patrick's Day. Made as was except a few things. I was only me and my bf, so I reduced the serving size. One can of soup, two cups water, 1.5 cups celery and carrots (wanted lots of those), about 3/4 onion (next time I may add a whole one), some Adobo, black pepper, parsley, 1 tsp. garlic, two chicken breasts, peas in half (bf doesn't like), three potatoes. I did not to the biscuits on top. My bf doesn't like it like that so I just made some pre-made biscuits separately. Cooked #1 for an hour. I forgot to take the chicken out and shred it. Only problem is, I think the amount of water has to do with adding the baking mix, so mine was more soupy, but REALLY good!! Since I forgot to cut the chicken, I put that on a plate and then the "soup" in a bowl. I combined mine, bf didn't. However he ate it all, which is unusual! Only thing I will change is probably reducing the amount of water, but I almost liked the broth because it was sooo good. I'm not sure if I'll get the right consistancy without making dumplings in it. That's ok though, it's so good!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Just made this recipe and it was great! I made a few changes, just because of other's reviews. I cut the chicken into cubes. I added roughly 2 tbsp. of honey to the pan and cooked the chicken in the honey then took the chicken out. I got to cheat because we have a 5lb. bag of frozen stir-fry mix, so I added four cups of that to a Pam sprayed pan. I cooked that for about 5 minutes. I boiled water and mixed the bouillon cube in it. I added 1/2 cup of water with the cube into the stir-fry mix, which may have been a bit too much water because I had to cook at high for about 15 minutes to get the extra juice out. Then, I added about a tsp. of garlic powder, 1tbsp. of soy sauce and cooked that. It was soooo good and my bf was actually really liked it too. I will definitely make this again. I will just add maybe one more chicken breast and another two cups of stir-fry mix because we ate it all. Awesome!

Homestyle Chicken and Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Very good recipe, nice spin on chicken broccoli casserole. I made a few changes. I used a lot less than 1/4 cup of milk, more like the bottom of the soup can worth. Mine always comes out soupy when I use more. I did not use any pepper, instead I used basil, oregano, dried onion, and fresh parsley...roughly a teaspoon of each. The frozen veggie mix I had was with carrots, green beans, and peas and I also used a bit of fresh broccoli. I have no clue what canned chunk chicken is. I boiled chicken and cubed that. After I put the chicken in my casserole dish, I tossed with a tablespoon of caesar dressing, then put the rest together, adding cheese and mixing and then topping with cheese. I didn't cook with the biscuits because the last time I made something like this, my boyfriend didn't like the mushy biscuits. I cooked for 20 minutes, but it could have used more time. Overall, great.

Chunky Tomato Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
In all fairness, the only reason I rated this so low is because of the milk. I don't really like milk and I didn't realize this recipe called for milk until I started making it. It is edible, but I will not make this again. The picture looks so good, but milk in soup is not my thing.

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This recipe is really good and really easy! I followed the directions, but I did not use any salt, butter, nuts, and I used 4 bananas because that's what I had left. I added a tablespoon of vanilla as recommended by others. I also used apple sauce instead of butter. I used the individual applesauce which is 1/3 cup. Then just for fun, I added 1/6 cup of apple cider (it was half filled in my applesauce container). It came out super good! Just remember to check the loaf around 55 minutes, because it will be close at that point. I will make again. Thank you!

Farmhouse Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
This recipe hit the spot! This is the second time I've followed this recipe, but I think it was better this time! It was only two of us, so I made two chicken breasts, left whole and one chicken breast was enough for my bf and I. Now we have lunch for tomorrow! I made the Stove Top as directed, but the directions call for butter and I just omitted that. I mixed one can of cream of chicken soup, pepper, and a little less than 1/4 cup milk (these are all portions based on 2 servings). I only had a stalk and a half of celery left so I used that, next time I would like to add more, then added the celery and a slice of onion, diced into the stuffing. For assembly, I did mine differently: I sprayed two large pieces of tin foil with Pam, coated the chicken with a bit of pepper, Adobe, and dried chopped onion then put that on the foil. Next to the chicken, I added half the stuffing mixture and topped that with frozen peas. I then covered it all with the cream mixture, making sure the entire chicken was coated. Last, I folded the sides and top in so it could cook in the foil. I ended up cooking the chicken on 375 degrees from 45 minutes. Amazing! The only thing I will change next time is no onion in the stuffing mixture and less milk.

Potluck Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because of the saltiness, but I guess that was more of the stuffingg
