French Onion Chicken with Provolone Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
This was pretty good! Definitely easy! The only change I made was to broil the cheese for a minute after it melted so that it got a little crispy on top like French onion soup often has.

Karen's Italian Pan-Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
Loved this recipe! The chicken was tender and moist inside with a crisp crumb coating (I used Panko crumbs), and it paired greatly with the roasted red peppers and asiago cheese. I definitely ate more than I should have! Plus, it only took a half hour to throw together.

Barbecue Smoked Sausage Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2014
We loved this! The flavors worked perfectly together for a savory pizza. The bbq sauce was a great touch. Plus, it is so easy to throw together. I made a homemade crust that had additional herbs in it, and I'm so happy I prebaked the crust on 425 for a few minutes (after brushing lightly with olive oil), because the small amount of extra water from the veggies would have made it very soggy if I didn't pre bake before topping. I am making this again tonight!

Banana Bread from Mott's®

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
This was pretty good! After reading reviews on how there was too much batter, I halved the recipe and used the same pan. It came out a little smaller than normal breads but was still great! And it only needed to bake for 45 minutes instead of the hour.

Caramel Apple Cider with Salty-Sweet Rim

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
What a delicious fall drink! Perfect for a snowy day! The sweet/salty rim was perfect, and the hot cider had a great caramel flavor. I didn't have caramel sauce for the rim, so I dipped it in pumpkin butter from Trader Joe's which gave it added flavor. Oh, and I used 3 caramel candies in the drink. Thanks for the great recipe!

Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
I was craving something sweet but didn't want to make something time-consuming. This was simple to make and took 5 minutes (did it on a commercial break). I followed the directions except I used white chocolate chips instead of the semisweet minis and walnuts instead of almonds b/c that's all I had. I really wish I had the minis, because the large choco chips sunk right to the bottom and stuck to the mug! This cake is chocolatey without being too sweet or rich and the milk added a nice creamy taste. However, next time, I will use 2 or 2.5 T of milk, because I had just a bit too much liquid. The cake formed, but there was a little "chocolate milk" liquid around it. (Microwaved mine for just over a minute because I just used one larger mug rather than a few smaller ones.) I'll probably make this again as it's a great cake to randomly make for 1-2 people.

Creamy Chicken Dijon from Mazola®

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
Another great recipe from Mazola! It tasted just like the recipe states - creamy with a hint of mustard. I served it over egg noodles, so I doubled the sauce because we like our noodles doused in sauce. I don't have a Dutch oven, unfortunately, so I just cooked it all in a deep skillet on the stove. Also, I added a few dashes of onion powder to the chicken as it browned for added flavor. Oh, and I used heavy cream instead of half and half because I already had it in my fridge. This was very good!

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
Delicious and healthy! I followed the first two steps exactly and then dumped it all in the slow cooker for a few hours. Served with homemade bread.

PAM® Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
This is in our top 10 favorite recipes of all time! My husband requests it often! The only change that I have come to more recently make is to spread the butter mixture (only using 1/4 cup of butter) onto the top layer of crescent roll dough rather than just dotting it.

Polish Kielbasa and Pierogies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
We enjoyed this recipe very much! Delish! We made no changes except to serve with a brown butter/beer/apple cider/dijon mustard sauce. Will try this again soon!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
Everyone loved this! I left out the water and this made a very filling, almost chili-like soup. I made my own taco seasoning and used Johnsonville ground breakfast sausage instead of the beef. I also followed other reviewers which said to use: 10.75 oz. can of tomato soup, a packet of ranch dressing, 1 can of cannelloni beans instead of the chili beans, 1 can of diced tomatoes and jalapenos and 1 can of regular diced tomatoes. Can't wait to make it again! Served with cornbread and topped with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips.

Peanut Butter Pie XIII

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
Wow! I served this at a group and everyone loved this! Not too sweet, not too peanut buttery, not too runny, but a smooth pudding-like texture. Changes I made: I used 3/4 cup of flour. Also, I spooned the custard into a prepackaged Oreo crust that I brushed with beaten egg white and pre-baked in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes. After reading reviews, I was worried that the custard wouldn't thicken, so what I did was added the sugar and flour to the milk/egg mixture only after a minute or two of cooking this on MEDIUM-LOW heat. I then brought the heat up to medium for about a minute and then brought it up to medium-high for another minute or two just to get the mixture to warm up. As soon as it was warm (and before it was simmering or the eggs had a chance to cook), I turned the heat back down to medium-low and continued to cook it. This whole process took about 10 minutes for it to thicken to a custard before I added the peanut butter and vanilla. It's important to remember to stir continuously throughout the cooking. I topped this with homemade sweetened whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa powder, and a few pieces of chocolate that I had melted into shapes. So good!

Bachelor Buttons II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
Very easy and budget-friendly cookies! I had all of the ingredients in my pantry, and this took 5 minutes to prep and 8 minutes to bake - perfect for last minute guests. The only change I made was to follow another reviewer's advice to use 1/2 tsp salt. The cookies were chewy but not too soft and tasted a bit like chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate due to the brown sugar. They weren't too sweet, but certainly weren't bland either. Just yummy as is. I couldn't stop myself from eating the leftover dough while I baked them, because it was good!

Easy Black Beans and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
This was quick, easy, and flavorful! I didn't make any changes to this recipe. I served it over mashed potatoes as a side to go with "Chicken Ole" from this site. Will make this again!

Chicken Ole

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
We enjoyed the flavors, and the chicken came out very moist. I doubled the recipe and cooked a few on medium and a few on medium-high and I think we prefer them darker/crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside, so I think the best way to do this is to cook them in the butter for approximately two minutes on medium-high until each side is crispy and blackened and then pour in the marinade, turn the heat to medium, cover, and cook for about 5-7 minutes until the marinade and chicken reach 165 degrees. I used the "Taco Sauce" recipe from this site as the first ingredient which lent a nice flavor to the dish and served this with a side of mashed potatoes (because my husband eats them with every meal) topped with "Easy Black Beans and Tomatoes" from this site. I also made a spinach salad as an additional side. Overall, it was a nice weekday dinner (quick and easy), and my husband said the flavor of this chicken is one of his favorites. So happy we made extras for leftovers!

Taco Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
This has a good flavor and would taste fine on tacos, I think. Since I was using this as an ingredient for another recipe (Chicken Ole from this site), I added a few squirts of ketchup to give it the tomato flavor I would normally expect. (However, I did try the sauce without it and thought it was good without the ketchup too.) Additionally, I followed the advice of other reviewers to double the spice amounts and use 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup canola oil instead of just the olive oil. Next time I may add a few dashes of chili powder and paprika if I want a more traditional "taco sauce" flavor.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
I can't rate this high enough! These are some of the best cookies I have ever made, and most people think they are store-bought when they try them. I make them often, and people often ask for the recipe. They are chewy if you don't bake them for too long. (You need to take them out of the oven when they seem slightly gooey still.) The chewy, buttery texture of the dough and the creaminess of the white chocolate chips with a slight oatmeal texture (some people don't even realize there are oats in the cookies), really makes for a great recipe. I always make extra dough because they go quickly (and because I eat some of the dough from the bowl). I leave out the pecans, but don't change the recipe other ways. Thank you for sharing, Julie!

QUICK AND EASY LEMON LOAF

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
I made the recipe as stated. I thought the lemon flavor was perfect (and agree with Ellie that this would be great with a cup of tea). I thought it had a nice crumb, though the texture of the cake (below that delicious lemony glaze) was a but dry. Thanks for sharing, Manella! I will make this again, but will probably use butter next time instead of the butter-flavored shortening I used.
