White Fiber Mini Shells with Cherry Tomatoes, Basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2014
Here's another simple but tasty pasta dish that I made for a potluck. With the slight tang of the cherry tomatoes mixing with a subtle basil flavor and a creamy texture of melted parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, any pasta fan would gobble this up. Very nice!

Honey Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
Meh… It wasn't horrible. Just OK. Nothing special about it. I used grape tomatoes, but didn't make any other changes. I think I would have rather just eaten the tomatoes by themselves than with the honey.

Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper and Olive Oil

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
I was skeptical about this dish, as we don't normally eat pasta without tomato sauce so I was hoping it wouldn't be too bland, but this exceeded my expectations. The flavors of the olive oil, garlic, and red pepper blended well together, and the cheese added a light creaminess to the pasta. In fact, I ate way too much in one sitting! I didn't change a thing. This was served as a side to Easy Lemon and Herb Blackened Chicken from this site, since we don't normally eat dinner without a protein. It only takes 10-15 minutes including prep time, so this was perfect for our weeknight dinner. Thanks, Barilla!

Easy Lemon and Herb Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
The flavors were good - lemon was prominent but not overpowering, and the seasoning tasted good with the lemon. These came out moist and tender. The only changes I made were to marinate it in a freezer ziplock bag, because I feel that coats the chicken better and to use garlic-infused grape seed oil in the marinade because I ran out of olive oil. This is a simple recipe, perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. I threw the chicken in the marinade before the gym and cooked chicken for 10 minutes after the gym. I could have maybe cooked it another minute on each side for an even darker color, but it was still very tasty! Served with a side of Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper, and Olive Oil (see other recipe from AR). I will definitely make this chicken again soon!

Slow Cooked Chipotle Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
We eat a lot of chicken, but this is in our top 5 favorite main dish chicken recipes! The flavors in the sauce were perfect (creamy with a little kick…). The recipe involves little prep work, so it's great for a yummy weeknight dinner. I served this with warm flour tortillas, but it would also be great over mashed potatoes or rice. Thank you, Mazola!

Gluten Free Rotini with a Charred Green Onion Pesto, Toasted Cashews and Cranberries

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
This is an easy to make side pasta salad for a light summer dinner. (But don’t forget to warn people that there are cashews in case they are allergic!) I was happy to learn that Barilla® now has gluten free pasta, because I have hosted friends who have gluten intolerance in the past, and it is difficult to find recipes that don’t include gluten.

Elbows Mac and Cheese with Tuscan Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
We truly enjoyed this recipe. It has a unique, tasty flavor. We particularly enjoyed the mixes of the freshly shredded cheese fontina cheese, grated parmesan cheese and the creamy Tuscan sauce. Unlike other reviewers of this recipe, I did not have a problem with the cheese melting. It is important to note that the pasta and sauce must still be hot when mixed with the cheese. It would probably even help to add a bit extra parmesan cheese. Can’t wait to make this again!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2014
This is so good! I followed a bunch of suggestions from other reviewers. These include: adding 1tsp cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, 1T vanilla, 2T flour, 1T cornstarch, cloves, allspice to the syrup before simmering (minus the water). Also, I mixed the syrup with apples and saved some for the glaze on top. I used a 9" glass pie plate and baked on the middle shelf. The syrup for the glaze needs to be hot. Also, I brushed egg white on the bottom crust, put a baking tray covered in foil underneath to catch the drips. Bake at 350 degrees to minimize scorching. Prepare lattice and garnishes ahead and keep in fridge. Finally, 10min before pie is done, brush with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

Satay Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
This was delicious! I used preheated leftover chicken and sauce from the Thai-Style Chicken Satay recipe from this site and used Thai roti bread (an easy to make flatbread) instead of the pita. I fried the roti on the stove and after the first side was cooked, I flipped it and topped it with a piece of cheese, then the leftover sauce/ chicken, another layer of cheese and then the green onion. I couldn't believe how good it was!

Thai-Style Chicken Satay

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
Wow, this was so very delicious! I made this using the oven method described in the notes since I didn't feel like starting up my grill. Served it with Thai roti bread (very easy to make). We used the leftovers to make the Satay Chicken Pizza recipe from this site. (I used roti bread instead of pita for the crust which probably tasted even better, IMO. Can't wait to make this recipe again. Thanks, CaptainCook!

Apple and Bacon Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
Can I give this more than 5 stars?! We loved this! I used this recipe for Johnsonville-s 6 Ingredient or Less challenge. I used a rustic boule of whole wheat bread and replaced the bacon with crumbled sausage meat. I also served it with the Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce from this site. So good! The flavors are perfect! If you don't have a panini press, just heat a skillet on medium and when it's hot, put your sandwich down with another, smaller pan on top of it to press it down. Then, just put a heavy can on it to hold it. Flip the sandwich after 2-3 minutes (after it's toasted nicely).

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
These were delicious and very easy to make. I followed another reviewer's advice to grate my own potatoes for the hashbrowns. They just need to be rinsed and wrung out once or twice, so that there isn't too much moisture.

Karen's Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
The taste of these cookies is amazing with the change I made (using brown sugar AND white sugar rather than just the white). These were so good, they didn't even need frosting, though they wouldn't taste bad with it either. My cookies were difficult to roll because the dough was sticky, so I just spooned them onto parchment paper like drop cookies. They spread quite a bit in the oven (I didn't have enough time to refrigerate them for the full hour), but they were delish. My husband tried one a few days later and said it was so moist that it tasted as if it had just come out of the oven.

Ashley and Whitney's Popcorn and Pretzel Sweet Snack Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
This is so good! My husband and I gobbled it down. The only white chocolate I had was two of Terry's white chocolate oranges (the ones that are both shaped and flavored like oranges). When I make this again (and I definitely plan on it), I will use the chocolate oranges again. The citrus flavor works well with the other flavors. Also, I was in a bit of a rush, so I put the parchment covered tray of the popcorn mixture into the fridge for an half hour to speed up the hardening process.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
My husband and I loved this dish. The flavors in the rub were fantastic, and I’ll be trying the rub on other meats because it’s just that good! The salsa was unique and refreshing; it would be perfect for a summer dinner. The jalapeño gives it a nice kick. We’ll definitely be trying this meal again.

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
This dish was delicious, though a bit time-consuming if you include the prep work and cooking. The pork was delicious, and we enjoyed the salsa (which had some heat with the jalapeño). I served this with Mexican rice, avocado slices, and optional toppings of sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. The pork can also be made in the slow cooker. Just throw in the pork, spices, and a few cups of beef stock and cook on high for 6 hours. I made quesadillas with the leftovers (and topped with the salsa, of course.) Yum!

Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
This was good. I used a can of sweet corn and a can of green beans instead of the frozen veggies and served it topped with leftover gravy. An easy meal for Thanksgiving leftovers.

Another great recipe by Johnsonville! I added an egg, freshly shredded parmesan cheese, and a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Can't wait to try it again!
