Tomato Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
We liked the simplicity of this recipe, but did find it bland based on the original recipe. We added garlic powder and thyme to the breadcrumbs (we used panko crumbs). We also added garlic and rosemary seasoning blend to the tomato mixture along with coming half the diced onion with a bit of butter until cooked through, to cut down on the raw onion bite and let it marinate in the fridge. We also warmed the tomato mixture in a skillet before topping the finished chicken breasts. So good.

Grilled Masala Chicken with Vegetables

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
The hubs & I enjoyed this recipe for the simplicity and flavors. Paired well with brown rice and green salad. Next time we're going to add some red bell peppers. Clean was a snap for me too, another bonus!

White Peach Sorbet

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Really liked the simplicity of this recipe. Will definitely make it again with 1 modification of using a simple syrup instead of sugar to sweeten sorbet to avoid any gritty texture. We used regular peaches as white were not available when I made this. Added a few leaves of mint to add additional flavor (next time use a mint simple syrup?). It was smooth, creamy and flavorful.

Baked Italian Chicken Breast with Brie

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2013
We loved this recipe and will make it again but with some additions like a few dashes of True Lemon crystals and Italian parsley for the rub portion to brighten it up with a tart flavor, and rough chopped scallions added to the other vegetables. Very easy to make and great with a simply dressed salad.

Coffee Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
We loved this recipe for all its simplicity, it was flavorful and rocked the next day as sandwiches! I used a really nice premium dark roast coffee, seasoned the chuck roast with salt/pepper prior to searing. I'm going to try this next time in the slow cooker as I'm not usually comfortable leaving the stove on for that long of time (toddler in the house!) and will try this in a dutch oven as well. Keeper!

Momma's Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
A decent recipe for when you want to clear out some space in your pantry and want to spruce up regular jar sauce. I made this in the slow cooker and it turned out pretty good. Husband & kids enjoyed it though I found the finished marinara a bit sweet even though I used a Roast Garlic jar sauce. Ultimately though, for a recipe that still has a 4-5 hour cooking time, I'll stick with my fresh tomato based sauce which also has 6 other vegetables in it (shhh don't tell the kids!)

Grands!® Biscuit Taco Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
Maybe these should be called "taco bowls".. the husband loved these though we both thought the size of the cups were kinda big (we used the bottom of a cupcake pan to make the cups) The boys found them awkward to eat because of their size, they didn't know if they should use a fork & knife or try to pick them up. In the end, they cut the bowl into pieces, but the overall effect was lost on them. Hubs liked them because it was an "all in one" meal with a side salad of cole slaw.

Jumbo Dark Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Flavor was nice, but the dough, after adding everything was very dry and crumbly. It wouldn't stay together so I added a few tablespoons of whole milk to reconstitute. It worked and the kids liked them, but I won't be making them again.

Pastrami Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
Everyone loved the wings, though my husband was initially skeptical with the idea of chicken wings tasting like Pastrami. Luckily, he loves pastrami so he was willing to try it and ended up loving the flavors, same as our picky 9yr old boy! Making these again for sure! Only change was adding granulated garlic & onion. :) excellent!

Individual Pumpkin Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
We loved these, even my uber picky mother, and its going into the fall desserts rotation! I just wish the nilla wafers would've stayed "crispy" like a crust, but I'm working on that right now. :D AND I'll use the foil baking cups next time instead of the standard paper ones.

Premium Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
My first pecan pie ever, so, the whole jiggle test just didn't seem logical and invariably I think I overcooked it. My dad loved it more for the extra crispy crust & toasted nuts and so did my brother. He did say it's missing more molassas, so maybe I'll sub in some of it next time and omit the maple syrup. But this is definately being made on Thanksgiving!

Easy Chicken Enchilada Crescent Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
Another super easy and fast meal to make for those busy weeknights. Kids seemed to enjoy it and the hubs loved it because of its simplicity, he couldn't believe it was only 4 ingredients!

Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Steel Cut Oats

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Followed the recipe with the exception of adding 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup zante currants instead of 1cup raisins. I initially thought the amount of water (10cupes?) seemed a bit much, esp if you include the applesauce, but since I'd never cooked with steel cut oats, I figured it'll "drink" all the water up and be more like an oatmeal when done, I was wrong. After letting it cook for 6 hours (still looked like brown water in a crockpot) I cooked it for another 2 on low.. still watery and I tasted it this morning (let it cook over night) it was a soupy-watery mess with probably about 3 cups of liquid still left over. I had to dredge out the "oatmeal" from the bottom of the crockpot. All that water didn't get absorbed, or cook down.. its watery oatmeal. Smells great, but its not appealing at all. Was kinda hoping this would be the chance I'd get over my distaste for oatmeal with something yummy. I'll keep searching.

Chicken Crescent Calzones

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2012
A simple weeknight meal the husband and oldest son enjoyed. I couldn't find monterey jack cheese, so colby jack was sub'd along with sliced grilled chicken instead of the deli. It was a bit dry in the middle, maybe using a creamier cheese like gruyere would help keep the chicken moist while baking. The mushroom gravy did help eliminate that, but for the boy who doesn't like gravy, it was dry to eat.. so he used ketchup, the kid's condiment of choice. Will make this again, subbing out chicken for ham or other meats & using other cheeses.

Slow Cooker Mediterranean Roast Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
We really loved this as an alternative to the usual "roast turkey" in the oven. I couldn't find Greek seasoning at the store so I used a Mediterranean rub I make from scratch instead with a bit of lemon zest in it. Turkey turned out moist, very flavorful and easy to make. Can't beat that for dinner! :) Will make this again, for sure.

Trail Mix White Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Made the recipe as is and the white chocolate with the ginger was just too sweet and overwhelming in ginger flavor. Its just not the kind of thing we'd pack for a hike or take camping, its just too sweet.
