Honey Chipotle Glaze for Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
This glaze is delicious! I didn't use a whole chicken, but it was wonderful on boneless, skinless breasts!

Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Mine was too thick as the recipe was written...I had to thin it with water from the cooked pasta to keep it from becoming a gloppy mess. I also think it could use some garlic, which is easily added while you melt the butter. Despite those minor flaws, it's simple to prepare and the taste is very good.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Very good..we like spicy food, so these were definitely more flavorful than other meatballs I've tried, but certainly not overwhelming! I doubled the recipe, used half pork sausage and half ground beef, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I think more garlic or fresh garlic would be a good addition, but otherwise, the spices are a great mix. We ate them open-faced on hamburger buns with my own spaghetti sauce recipe. We had most of them leftover for the freezer, which is a great thing!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Wow...this surpassed me with both its simplicity and good taste. It takes a few minutes to pull the sauce together, but after that, it is super simple and quick. I knocked off one star because it cooks *much* faster than the directions state...if I'd cooked my chicken pieces for 40-42 minutes, I would have been badly overfilled. So adjust your cooking times (you can tell when it's done before adding the sauce and then just simmer the sauce for about 10 minutes) and you have a meal that is sure to please. I also added some steamed broccoli to the dish to make it a complete meal.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
We liked this a lot...I was unable to find the radishes, so we just left those off...everything else we did according to the recipe. My daughter, who eats Thai food a lot in her college town, said it was almost as good as her favorite Pad Thai there. I'm making it again this week...thanks for a great recipe!

Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
These are delicious! The chipotle adds a great warmth without killing your palette. My only changes were to make 12 slider-sized burgers and to use Swiss cheese instead of mozzarella. Definitely a keeper and one we'll make often.

Grilled Tomato, Onion, and Bread Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
It was good, but didn't have the "wow" factor I was expecting.

Roasted Vegetable Orzo

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
This was just ok for me. After trying several orzo recipes, I'm thinking that I don't care for it. I don't need the carbs anyway...

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
Simple, and great when squash is cheap or you have an abundance in the garden. My mom taught me to make squash casserole many, many years ago and this recipe is very close to hers. I usually use less butter and just eyeball the amount of crackers and cheese.

Caramel Corn Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
So, so good! It's terrible for me, but I made this for a road trip with my husband and we snacked on it all day long. I toasted the pecans for a bit before adding them to the mix, but otherwise, I made it exactly as the recipe states. Great stuff.

Crunchy Country Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This is a staple in our house...usually made with chicken, but it's great on boneless pork chops too. I *love* the gravy, actually prefer it to cream gravy. I serve this with a green veggie and salad or sometimes with a squash casserole for a real comfort food, Sunday dinner feel.

Sugar-Free Frosting

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
I didn't care for this at all...I had to add a LOT of extra pudding mix to get it firm enough to pipe, then it was sticky. I made this to "tag team" with a friend who made sugar-free cupcakes, even though this ISN'T sugar-free when you use the cool-whip. No one who ate it complained though, so some may love it. I don't expect to make it again.

Roasted Corn Salsa

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
I loved it...served on fish tacos. The rest of the family asked to go back to my "regular" tacos, so probably won't be making this one again. Flavors are great, though...be sure to use plenty of lime.

Cobb Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Simple, delicious. I made my own ranch dressing and added some cucumber because I love it, but otherwise I made it according to the recipe. Will definitely make again and again.

Happy Roast Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Very moist, very tender chicken. I only used bone-in breasts because we don't like dark meat and we remove the skin because we don't like that either. I just put the lemon, a little butter and garrlic cloves underneath the skin and the dijon on the skin. Next time I might put the mustard under the skin too, since a lot of that flavor was removed when I removed the skin. The flavor combo with the wine was good, though, so I'll make it again. I'm sure the leftovers will be good in chicken salad.

Shrimp Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
I read lots of reviews and tried to follow the best instructions for getting them to bind, but to no avail. I made them without an egg, thinking that if I baked them at a high temp, they would hold together. Should have gone ahead and added the egg, I suppose. They looked great when I took them out of the oven, but as soon as I tried to move one, they fell apart. I tried cooking them a bit longer, but was worried about the shrimp overcooking...it was definitely on the borderline...and yet, they still fell apart. Trying to salvage my meal, I decided to just eat them anyway, but the crackers and other ingredients just tasted mushy and weird and the shrimp did not shine. Sorry, but there is just too much wrong with this dish to make it worth trying again.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Very good...I only made six because I was using up 1/2 a package of Hawaiian sweet rolls. I made exactly as written...the soup mix made them a little salty for me. I will probably just sub in minced onion and perhaps a touch of worchestershire sauce next time. I've never had a White Castle burger, so I don't know if these taste like them, but they were overall a very quick, simple meal for us, served with cole slaw and fruit.

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
Yum! Made this a day earlier than I needed it because of another obligation. We warmed it slightly in the microwave to eat and it was wonderful! The strawberries add moistness, which I often find lacking coffee cake. It did take more than 45 minutes to bake, which makes me think I could have used about half the butter. I'm going to cut it back next time to see if that helps. Finally, I added about 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the flour mixture...we loved the hint of it throughout the cake. This is only an occasional treat for me, but it's definitely a keeper!

Parmesan Zucchini Spears

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
I love, love zucchini and this is one of the best preps I've found. I cooked it on a bit higher heat to get a really brown crust, but still have the crisp veggie. Freshly grated Parm adds the final little kick. Perfectly wonderful way to serve an old favorite.
