Mexican Potato Nachos

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Made this for Recipe Group...We LOVED these! Made as written, except for adding some garlic powder to the potatoes, along w/ the salt and pepper while they were baking, and flipping them 1/2 way through, so they would brown evenly. They were great as is, but I think next time I will add some green onions and maybe a bit of salsa or taco sauce to the top as well, just for a little something extra. What a fun twist... I will def be making these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
DELICIOUS!!!! Made this for our weekly "dip night", and we totally tore it up! I didn't use the optional chopped jalapenos because my 2 year old was eating this as well. Oh, and I did use the mild rotel instead of the regular to cut a little heat (again, for the little guy). I also added the beans in with the rest of the ingredients instead of waiting until the end and they cooked up fine with no mushiness or breakage. This dip is a new favorite in my house! Thanks for posting. :)

Happy Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
YUM, this was delicious! I did not have a cast iron skillet, so I just used my usual chicken baking dish. Also, I did not measure the dijon and in addition to the salt and pepper, I also seasoned it with garlic powder. This came out incredibly moist, juicy and flavorful. I will be making this often! Thanks for sharing. :)

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
This was PHENOMINAL!!! One of the best recipes that I have tried from this site, hands down. Super simple to put together and the flavor was just awesome. I made this exactly as written aside from omitting the red peppers because I didn't have any and adding in a few cloves of whole garlic. I used hot Italian sausage. My little guy wiped his plate clean, and so did we, lol! This is a definate 10 star recipe that I will be making VERY OFTEN! Thanks for sharing. :)

Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
Delicious! These were cooked perfectly. I used 6 bl/sl thighs, but kept the sauce ingredients the same. After the thighs were cooked, I took them out of the slow cooker and stirred in a little cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce, which worked out great. Served over Jasmine rice and with a side of 'garlic broccoli' also from this site. The family cleaned their plates, so that makes this a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
This is soooo good! So simple to prepare, yet it looks and tastes like it took a lot of time and effort. I did reduce the seasoned salt to 1/2 teapoon because of a lot of reviews that said it was salty and I think it was perfect. Also, I didn't bother to pre cook the bacon out of laziness, lol, but it cooked up fine in the oven. Other than that I kept everything the same. I will definately be using this recipe again.....and again-YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Broken Spaghetti Risotto

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
OK, I could've totally ate this entire thing, lol...YES, IT'S THAT GOOD! Just be prepared...this took more time (and broth) than called for, which was no problem for me b/c I had the extra time, and this is soooo worth it, just wanting to let others know! Great flavor and method...I used 'Barilla Cut Spaghetti', instead of breaking my own, just b/c I had it. I will be making this over and over~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Baked Omelet Roll

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
This was very good, but after reading through ALL the reviews, I did change it up some. I decided to still review this because I feel that this is a great method and it really has a lot of potential with a few changes. I used 9 eggs, reduced the flour to 1/4 cup, about 3/4 cup milk and the salt and pepper. After blending, I mixed in a little chives, dill and parsley. I poured it into a 10x15 sheet pan that was well sprayed with cooking spray and put it in the oven @ 350 degrees, until just set (it took about 8 mins. in mine, but my oven is very hot). I removed it, loosened the edges w/ a spatula and sprinkled it with some finely chopped onions and green peppers that I sauteed in a little olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder and then topped it w/ the cheese. I popped it back in the oven for about 2-3 minutes, just until the cheese melted, took it out and let it sit for maybe 4-5 mins. and then rolled. It rolled beautifully, cut perfectly and tasted delicious. Again, I just wanna say that this IS a great method of cooking an omelet, it just needs tweaked a little, IMO. I will definately be making this again and I can't wait to try it with different veggies and meats added! Thanks for sharing. :)

Cream Cheesy Cubed Zucchini with Lemon and Oregano

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This was good! I have to admit, I was hoping for a more lemony flavor, but other than that, this was simple to make and a great/different way to use up zucchini. I used whipped cream cheese and that worked out well. Oh, also, I used less oregano than called for b/c I only had dried and we don't like a strong oregano flavor. I would make this again, but add more zest or lemon juice or something, just for a little tang. Thanks for sharing. :)

Perfect Ten Baked Cod

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
This was super simple and delicious! LOVED the buttery crumb topping and the wine really gave this a nice flavor. I thought this could use a bit of salt, but that's my personal preference. I forgot to add the green onions, but I'll try to remember to do that next time (not that it needed it, IMO). I will def be making this one again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Spicy Honey-Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
EXCELLENT! I could not find my cumin, so I did have to omit that. Also, I had an orange on it's last leg, so I added the zest to the honey mixture, cut it into quarters and stuffed it inside the bird, along with a quartered onion and about 4 cloves of cracked garlic. This smelled wonderful while it was cooking, but my only complaint was that the skin sort of burned, so next time I'll keep a close eye and cover it w/ foil before it gets to that point. We all really, REALLY enjoyed this and I will definately be making it again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Classic Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
YUM!!!! I halved the recipe (except fot the onion) and baked it in an 8x8 baking dish. This came out PERFECT! I didn't have the saffron, so I omitted that. I can't believe the flavor that came out of just those few ingredients...sooo good! I will def be making this delicious rice again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Chicken Crumb Coating

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
We LOVED our chicken like this! I made just enough of the crumb miture to coat my chicken (I used skinless thighs). I did add some seasoned salt, parsly and pepper to the crumbs as well. Before baking, I sprayed them with non-stick spray and sprinkled on some paprika for color. These came out crispy, and flavorful. I will definately be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
This was a perfect find for me today! Me and the little guy made some cupcakes that we stuffed w/ Golden Oreos (we were playing, lol), and I was looking for a different type of frosting besides the usual chocolate or vanilla...then I stumbled upon Marianne's pic in the photo pages (Thanks, Marianne!), and I decided that this was it. It also worked out b/c I had some strawberries that were a little past their prime, so what better to do w/ them than make this... LOVED the fresh flavor, and so simple to make too! Thanks, Candice, for a wonderfully delicious frosting~YUM! :)

Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
We loved these! Mine did take longer to cook, than stated (about 40 mins. or so), but other than that, they were great. I added a bit of garlic powder to the cheese mixture, just because. I was glad to use up some jalapenos from the garden...I will def be making thiese again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

The Original Fantasy Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
This is the only recipe that my family has ever used, and it's the only one I use and will continue to use...This makes the creamiest, most delicious fudge that you will ever eat, and it's simple to make too! Sometimes I will use white choco. chips and add nuts, cherries, etc.... or white chips w/ maple flavoring and walnuts. I have done so many different flavor combinations w/ this recipe, and it always turns out fantastic~YUM! :) NOTE: If you happen to have a candy thermometer handy, you will want to bring the mixture to 234 degrees, then continue w/ the recipe. I find that I have better luck using a thermometer than just timing it.

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
DELICIOUS! I did saute some onion and garlic in a little olive oil before adding the rice and water to cook, which added another dimension of flavor. Also, I actually had some pizza sauce that needed used up, so I went with that. I do know that pizza sauce is usually more heavily seasoned than regular sauce, so maybe that's why I didn't feel any other seasonings were needed, as others have mentioned. I was glad to see that these were baked instead of fried, because my usual recipe calls for frying and this was a nice change. Anyway, the flavors of these were great, they remined me of a cross between pizza (I guess from the pizza sauce) and lasagna. Wonderful recipe that I will be making again, for sure~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Made this for Recipe Group and oh man, are these DELICIOUS!!!!! I maed them exactly as written, and feel no changes are necessary. I got 35 cupcakes out of the recipe and I baked them @ 325 degrees for only 14 minutes (my oven is super HOT). The icing is VERY sweet, but it really compliments the cupcake nicely. I did add a drop of orange oil, just to get a better orange flavor. I was able to ice about 18 cupcakes, but I like a lot of icing, so if you are just gonna spread it on, there should be plenty. I decided to freeze the un-iced cupcakes for another time. I really can't believe how fantastic these turned out...I will be making these many, many more times~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Sesame Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
I bought a bottle of hot chili oil at the Asian market a couple of weeks ago, and had no idea what to do with it...then I stumbled upon this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did! This was very good! I have to admit, though I LOVE sesame oil, 1/2 cup seemed a bit much, so I started off with 1/4 cup and thought I would just add more if I needed to. I didn't. I thought that that was the perfect amount for us. Also, I used thin spaghetti because hubby doesn't like angel hair and I added more green onions than called for. I served this warm, but can't wait to try the leftovers cold tomorrow. We really enjoyed the spiciness from the chili oil as well. I will be using this recipe again, for sure! Thanks for sharing. :)

Shrimp Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
If I could give these more stars, I would...these are restaurant quality and absolutely DELICIOUS! Made exactly as written, except for adding some minced garlic in w/ the onions and peppers. Also, I cooked mine in the oven (400 degrees until golden, spraying the bottom and top of the tortilla w/ cooking spray before baking). The flavors here are amazing! I served them w/ a side of guacamole, salsa and sour cream, but they really could stand on their own, they are that good! I will def be using this recipe often~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
