One Dish Chicken and Rice Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I followed this recipe as written and it came out pretty poor. The rice and the chicken both turned out to be overcooked and the rice lacked taste in general. If I make this recipe again, I would add chicken broth to the water to cook the rice in and maybe add some veggies to the rice as well.

Donna's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
This lasagna recipe is the only one I make. The only change I make is reducing the amount of sugar in the sauce by half. I get complimented on this every time and the leftovers never last very long!

Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
This is so good. So simple and will impress everyone you serve it to. I omit the onions because of personal taste. The candied pecans are my favorite part of the salad.

Super Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This is THE BEST chicken noodle soup without going through the tedious task of making it the traditional style with a whole chicken etc. This is 10x easier and tastes just the same, in my opinion. I did add celery and carrots, and used thin egg noodles. It is the number one go to dish I make for myself on a cold day or for my loved ones when they are sick.

Strawberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Rave reviews from boyfriend, friends, etc. this is delicious and pretty easy to make. I am pretty sure I added more strawberry to swirl into the cake than it called for, and I used fresh strawberries and added a little bit of sugar. The fresh strawberry taste was to die for.

Perfect Berry Shortcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
So easy and so delicious. I love the technique of grating butter, it makes a perfect biscuit. I used the leftover biscuits for breakfast the next morning, toasted with some jam or fresh fruit.

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Oh these are sooo good! Be careful--a whole pitcher will be gone in a flash, and they are relatively strong! I use corona, what better for a margarita? It isn't the prettiest color in the end, but I assure you it will be finished quickly. Have more ingredients on hand to make a second batch.

Fresh Blueberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This is a really good blueberry pie. It was super easy to make too. I did add a top crust, and because I had to throw it in the oven with the blueberries to bake the top crust, I think it detracts a little bit from the consistency of the fresh/not cooked berries, because they get cooked a little bit in the oven. But it was still delicious, and I think that adding the top crust makes it better, so I would do it the same next time.

Grilled Tuna Teriyaki

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
The flavor was great, but this was a little too salty for me, even while using reduced sodium soy sauce. I think I may have to try this again by using half soy sauce half balsamic vinegar.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This was good. Very easy, but next time I will change a few things. I would use less butter, maybe cut it down to 2 or 3 tbsp, and I would top it with some kind of streusel. I mixed a little bit of cinnamon with the sugar to go on top and it was a nice flavor. I used all blueberries, and I actually think I may have used a little too much because the ratio of cake to fruit was a little off, but delicious none the less. I cooked mine for 50 minutes exactly and it came out perfectly brown--my favorite part is that the edge of the cobbler was all caramelized and crispy... soo good!

Tuna Salad With Fresh Dill

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
A delicious and refreshing way to have tuna salad. Definitely different from the traditional version--the fresh dill gives this familiar taste a unique but delicious twist. The only changed I made was omitting the yogurt completely and adding slightly more mayo (maybe a tsp more-I don't like my tuna salad too creamy). I also used reduced fat mayo and it turned out great. Next time, I might try adding a little lemon juice.

Broccoli Beef II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This was OK. I thought the sauce was a little watery. Next time I will thicken it with some cornstarch perhaps.

Boston Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Delicious and very easy to make. I also used a yellow cake mix from the box as suggested by another user on this site. Both the custard and the glaze turned out excellent and the whole thing was fast and easy to make. I definiely recommend this is anyone who is looking for a unique but easy cake recipe. I made it for my boyfriend's birthday and it was a hit all around!

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This is the first dessert pie I've ever made. It was easy, and turned out FANTASTIC! I did use the colander to strain the extra lemon juice from the peach mixture, but I think that some degree of remaining juice is necessary in order to get a good consistency once you add the dry ingredients. This pie was a huge hit, and I will definitely be making more pies in the future!

Grilled Lamb with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
The flavor of this dry rub was outstanding and very unique. I was a little nervous this would be too dry but it wasn't even a little bit, very juicy. This was enjoyed by everyone, even myself who does not prefer eating lamb cooked in any preparation. I'd really like to try this on pork ribs for an interesting/new taste.

Linguine with Clams and Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
This was really great. I used fresh portobellos instead of the dried porchini as suggested by another user and it came out wonderful. I used generous portion of red pepper flakes as I like my meals spicy, without it I think it may have been a little bland for me.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I absolutely love this recipe and I've made it a bunch of times now. The last time I made it I added some chicken to make it more of a meal and it was a great addition. I omit the green onions for personal taste, and I use grated ginger, not fresh, as it is just what I usually have on hand. I found that for me it is hard to find udon noodles in my grocery store, and I have made this with spaghetti every time and it still tastes delicious. I think next time I might add toasted sesame seeds... I think this would really go great with many additions.
