Magic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
We thought this recipe was very good. I used 3/4 cup of a $6 red wine from Trader Joe's and also their artichoke hearts (I prefer those because they are not quite so salty as other marinated artichoke hearts). The mushrooms were also TJ's (I guess you get the trend here). I followed the recipe exactly except for seasoning the chicken with some of my favorite seasoning from this site---Papa's Seasoning. I'm not sure what was wrong for the other reviewers because we'd have this again! I often have leftovers of the ingredients used in this recipe. The chicken that was left over will make a really good sandwich tomorrow! Thanks, MRSCHRISB!

Three-Ingredient Baked Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
I used this recipe tonight in place of the way I usually roast chicken breasts, the difference being that I use bone-in, skin-on chicken. Then we discard the bones and skin---but they add so much flavor to the chicken that we really don't need anything else to go with this. In place of the salt I used Papa's Seasoning from this site because it is such a flavorful blend of spices. I use Trader Joe's package of Kosher Chicken Breasts (two halves to a package), and so I halved the recipe. I really liked the butter and will continue to do so now. Yum! It was really tasty! Thanks, jifiner25!

Apricot Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2014
My hubby liked this much more than I did. I followed the recipe as written but halving it. There was twice as much sauce as needed, and the butter does not work. It didn't brown as I'd hoped it would with the sweet sauce on it. I'll let him have the leftovers in sandwich form, which I'm sure he will love. Thanks, Hope!

Heather's Best Ever Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2014
I used a personal recipe for ranch dressing (Semigourmet's) and followed the directions with two exceptions: I didn't add any salt, and I thought it was looking too dry, so near the end of baking I put a little Italian dressing over the top of the chicken. I think that made a difference. I wish I'd removed the skin of the chicken or even just used boneless skinless chicken, but I'll do that another time. It was tasty, and our leftovers will make a great chicken sandwich. Thanks, Heather!

Easy Avocado Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2014
I was surprised to see how much flavor this had. I wasn't expecting that because there is only lime juice for liquid. I used a piece of leftover chicken I'd made before that did have a lot of seasoning to it. The only change I made was to use Tajin rather than cayenne. The recipe doesn't state how to use the chicken once it is cooked, so I chose to slice it in thin strips. I love all the ingredients, and I'd make this again in a heartbeat! Easy and delicious! Thanks, RACH7H!

Cayenne Sugar Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
I made half a recipe and used pecan halves. I kept looking at them to see if they were done, using the direction of the submitter about baking them until they are not moist. It was hard to tell because of the color of the coating, and I did overcook them in the 25 minutes they were in the oven. These were pretty good, but I thought maybe there was too much sugar for the amount of pecans that I had weighed for accuracy.

Summertime Almond Butter and Peach Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
I bought some really good almond butter at a farmers' market and wanted to use it for a healthy breakfast, and this certainly caught my eye! I liked this but didn't think it was quite what I was hoping for (maybe my bread wasn't fresh enough or my peach sweet enough). I thought I'd try adding a little butter or a little honey to the bread and then heating up the sandwich. I will try this again because I love the combination of these food items. Thanks, Alyson!

Fruit Tortilla Wrap-Up

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
I used only 1/4 of a Jazz apple, one tablespoon of chocolate chips, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of cream cheese. I couldn't wrap up the tortilla as directed because there was too much food for a fajita size tortilla. I did microwave it for about 30 seconds, and I enjoyed every bite. This would make a nice snack for school kids when they come home in the afternoon! I could even picture raspberries and white chocolate chips. Thanks for the idea of this snack!

Herbed Alfredo Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2014
I cut this to half the recipe and pretty much followed the recipe. I used scallions rather than chives, and I probably got a little heavy-handed with the butter. I think the next time I would just use my garlic press rather than roasting the garlic and so cut down the amount of garlic in it. I might try just using a little more of the Classico Alfredo sauce rather than the milk, too. Be sure that you are generous with the panko and butter on the top---you need to judge that by the size of the surface of the dish you are using. I would definitely make this again! Thanks, Arich01!

Heavenly Chicken Garlic Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
Well, kbchmura, my review, sadly, will be what NOT to do with your lovely recipe for this sandwich! Do NOT try to use a hamburger bun, no matter how good the bun is! It's just too much softness and soaks up the butter and doesn't get crunchy enough! Maybe if I'd broiled the buns with just the butter first that would have helped. DO make sure to season the chicken well. The next time I pick up some hoagie rolls----like your recipe clearly calls for----I will try this again! Thank you!

Italian Mini Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
Excellent combination of ingredients! I followed the directions and ingredients except halving them with just a couple of variations in preparation. I looked at the other reviews and decided to try some of the saved sauce on the bottom of my pan for baking, and that worked well. When it came time for the cheese, I only used half (I didn't want it to slide off!), let it finish baking, and then added the rest of the cheese when it was done---putting it back in the oven only long enough to let it melt. Excellent! We have enough left for a really good sandwich! YUM! Thank you so very much, Paula!

Baked Halibut with Crispy Panko

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2014
We were at 4 1/2 with this lovely dish, mostly because we wanted just a touch more flavor to it----maybe a sprinkling of an herb medley (like Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute) or a little garlic flavor to the butter or the lemon juice. The panko topping was perfect. At first I thought there wasn't enough butter to cover the 1/2 cup, but it turned out great. We very much enjoyed our dinner! Thanks, Lindsey!

Italian Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
Duboo, this is a really good idea. I took it a little further than what you called for, however, because I needed to use up a couple of food items in my pantry! First, I had some leftover grilled pork chops and wanted to make a hot sandwich with them. I also had some of Chef John's Homemade Hamburger Buns in my freezer! So I cut the pork thin, toasted the hamburger bun with butter, made the sandwich, and poured your sausage sauce over the top. The only thing I did different was to use thyme rather than sage (personal preference). It did take a little more sauce vs sausage than called for, but it worked since we were not using the whole recipe. We very much enjoyed our sandwich tonight! Hubby thanks you, too!

Creamy Wild Rice Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
I am overruling my husband on the rating of this. He gave it a 4, but he doesn't ever want me to make rice. I, on the other hand, loved this! I followed the recipe pretty exactly. I would not add any salt to this because the wild rice mix and the Classico sauce both have enough for those who tend to be salt-sensitive. You can always add more later! In other recipes I've made using cracker crusts like this I've always mixed the butter and crackers together, and I did that, too, but it does take a little more butter. This would be pretty good sized servings for 4. Thank you so much, Sandra! This was really nice!

Dill Veggie Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
I cut this recipe down to fit our needs, and we thought this needed a little more flavor--maybe more of the onion. I did follow the recipe as written. It did make a nice salad dressing for my husband, and we did eat all those veggies I photo'd drenched with this, so we were happy! Thanks, Alicia!

Stuffed Alfredo Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
This was excellent! Because there are just two of us and because the potato was huge, I made only one and cut the recipe to 1 serving. We ate this alongside leftovers of Chef John's Beef Stroganoff and a salad, and we were happy campers. The only thing I did different was to use arugula rather than spinach because that's what I had on hand (and I LOVE the little bite of arugula!) and also because I love butter so much I added some to the bottom of the split potato before adding the sauce. Excellent! If you have just two of you to feed, one 15 oz jar of Classico Fresh Alfredo Sauce is perfect for several meals. Just check out their recipes! You won't be sorry!

Caramel Pecan Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
I almost liked the dough better than the cookies! Shhhh! Don't tell anyone I said that! I made half a recipe and got 21 cookies. I think for me the timing of the baking was off a little because I was thinking they were too done at 12 minutes, so the second pan I baked for 10 minutes which wasn't quite enough. I'm wondering if baking at 350 for the 15 would be best. I would suggest that if you bake one pan at a time that you keep the extra dough refrigerated because the second pan was flatter as it warmed up. I had problems with the caramel drizzle, too. It was hard to get it runny enough to drizzle (I even added a little cream thinking that would help), and once it got on the cookies it was hard to bite through. I'm thinking that another drizzle would work better--maybe just melted white chips. I don't want to discourage anyone from making these because they have promise, and that's why I'm giving them a 4 rating. They are sweet, but after all so are cinnamon rolls! Thanks, Mrs. Williams! PS. We miss you on the Buzz!

Bacon Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
It would be nigh on impossible not to love this salad--not with these ingredients! I cut it to 2 servings, and because I didn't have seasoned rice vinegar I made my own (1 tablespoon rice vinegar with 1/2-3/4 teaspoon sugar and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt). I didn't need to add any extra salt, and the tomatoes I had weren't cherry tomatoes but rather the slightly larger pearl tomatoes. Excellent! Thanks, Kristen! My lunch was delicious!

Creamy Alfredo Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
Not only are these potatoes delicious, but they are an easy make-ahead side dish! I made only 1/4 the recipe because there are just the two of us (along with a few tasters), and it filled a little 4x6 baking dish just perfectly! I followed the recipe except for maybe going just a tad heavy on the yummy Classico Alfredo sauce (maybe 1/3 of the jar---but totally not necessary). This is excellent, and it will even be adaptable to another dish---I'm thinking eggs. Thanks so very much, Baking Nana!

Herbs de Provence

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
I cut the recipe to 1/4 and used every ingredient as called for (even the lavender!). Very nice blend of spices! I will use this rather than try to buy some! Thank you so much, Mariposa!
