Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper and Olive Oil

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2014
I liked this a lot, and I say that even though I had difficulty getting the cheese to stick to the pasta. The pasta itself is excellent! I did mince the garlic, and because I didn't have parsley on hand I subbed fresh basil. My dinner guests and I didn't leave any leftovers of this! Thanks, Barilla!

Lemon Cream Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2014
This was better today than it was yesterday, so a day makes a lot of difference for me. The lemon part is REALLY good, but last night I didn't hold much hope for the crescent roll part. The directions are easy to follow, and the cooking time is right on the mark. Thanks, PAM29922!

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

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
The star of this dish is certainly the pesto, but it did not carry this dish enough for us. It is very easy to fix (I used my Smart Stick to mix up the pesto because I made a small batch). I was able to share the box of gluten-free pasta with someone who needs to use it; I can be very happy to go back to regular pasta--and I almost always buy Barilla because it's the best in the grocery store (in my opinion).

Simple Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
I chose to do two things differently from the recipe: I used the pasta that I had on hand (Radiatori) and I didn't cut up the chicken. Otherwise, I followed the directions. I kind of knew that this would not have a great deal of flavor because of the ingredients which are very easy to have on hand. The mushroom soup I used was an organic soup from Sprouts (no MSG). I seasoned the chicken with Papa's Seasoning from this site, and it was done in 45 minutes. After I finished baking it and taking my photo, I did add some corn salsa from Trader Joe's to increase the flavor. I would think that this would be a great dish to serve to people who need a diet with little seasoning and to little kids. This recipe certainly has its place in Allrecipes' archives! Thank you, PRISSY68!

Deb's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
This was very nice. I did not have any thawed bacon but had the rest of the ingredients with the exception of Granny Smith apple (I used a Jazz variety). My chicken needed more flavor, so salt and pepper were very necessary! Thanks for a quick and easy dinner tonight, GRANDMADEB!

Mexican Peach

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
I thought this would be too sweet with the margarita mix and the schnapps, but it's not at all! I really like this combination! Right after I took my photo, though, I got rid of the ice! I prefer my drinks like this straight up. Thanks, klynn21! I'll be making this one again! It's a great summer drink!

Lucky's Quickie Chickie

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
I used Costco's organic chicken breasts sliced horizontally, and I always put a little butter in with the olive oil to brown just because I love the color so much. Instead of just salt and pepper, I seasoned with Papa's Seasoning from this site, but otherwise I followed the directions. This really fit the bill for tonight's dinner, and it was just as advertised---quick and delicious! Thank you so very much, Lucky Noodles!

Garlic Lemon Butter Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2014
Basically this is a poached salmon---yummy as a main dish, but I bet it's even better cooled on a salad. I used all the ingredients but in smaller proportions. I skinned the bottom of my salmon so that the butter/garlic on the bottom of the dish could seep into the salmon from that side. I thought that the amount of water/lemon juice may have been a little too much because I didn't even use all of that. I will try it again without even using the water but just the butter, garlic, and lemon juice. I was afraid of the high heat with my dish, so I did only cook it at 425 but a little longer. I kept thinking of capers with this, but then that's a whole different dish! This was very good, so thanks, Jim M!

Kick'N Chicken with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Excellent! I used Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute for the chicken seasoning. I added a little Anaheim chile to the salsa because it's a mild chile (had to be careful for another eater in my family), but I like heat in my salsa! I made the salsa this morning, and I put the chicken in the marinade about 3 hours before grilling it. I will be making this again because it is a very nice low-cal low-fat meal! Thank you, Mazola!

Easy Watermelon Martini

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
What's not to love about this? My watermelon isn't very sweet, so it really needs just a touch of sugar. This is a nice summer drink. Thanks, Genevieve!

Honey Avocado Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
The taste of this is really good. I think I goofed because I cut the recipe down but maybe didn't use the correct correlation of chicken to sauce. It was too saucy, and I ran out of chicken. So my recommendation until I try this again and edit this review is to add the sauce to the chicken until you have it right. I love all these ingredients, and I really love avocado. It could be that there is just too much mayo! I will work on this until I get it right. I'm sure the submitter of this recipe is just cringing right now reading this. But Runs with Scissors, I did like this and will make it again! I promise!

Best Tarragon Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
In Cook's Notes it says it's OK to use chicken breast, so I did and cubed it rather than shredded it. I also did not use the kelp. It has been a long time since I used the boiling method of cooking chicken, so I thought I'd better try it---especially since it included wine and chicken broth! I don't think it produces a very flavorful chicken, so I'll go back to using the breasts with skin and bones, baking them with salt and pepper and maybe a little of Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute before removing just the chicken itself. It's a lot more flavorful, and I much prefer the texture. But the rest of the recipe produced a very nice result. I will make this again, being sure to use a mix of red onion as well as scallions. Thank you, DeanandBettieVintage!

Summer Veggie Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
I cut this down a lot to suit our needs, but I did follow the recipe. Salt and pepper are needed, and if you like heat, you may have to add a little. My jalapeno wasn't very strong today, so when I went to eat it, I added a little Tajin (a new favorite of mine for sure!). Thanks a lot for this, Lisa S!

Cindy's Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2014
How can you not like this? Yum! We had leftovers from a half turkey breast from Trader Joe's last night, and this looked like the perfect way to extend it. I used fresh cilantro rather than dried and Tajin rather than jalapeno. Otherwise, I did follow the recipe. I used the other ingredients but am not sure of the measurements because I made it to suit our tastes. Excellent! Thanks, SYNDI111!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
I hope it is OK that I used crimini mushrooms, since they are baby portobellas! I fished out blue cheese chunks from my own salad dressing to fill these, and they turned out great! I was looking for something to go with my dinner tonight, and this just fit the bill totally! Blue cheese? Mushrooms? What's not to like about these?! Thanks for the great idea, Anastasia!

Raspberry-Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
The only thing I did different was to grill rather than stove cook the chicken. It was good, but I wondered if the flavor would have been more enhanced with maybe fresh ginger or maybe a touch of cayenne. We ate it as a main course rather than as a salad ingredient. I think that if it were for a salad that cooking it stovetop would work best. I will try it that way next time, Injured Mule. Thanks!

Barramundi With Lemon Basil Sauce

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I used this recipe on halibut because I couldn't get the sea bass it calls for. I think I made a mistake by using my own breadcrumbs because they didn't really get very crispy, so I'd think that some like the Progresso would work well. I made my own version of Old Bay seasoning which turned out very similar to the brand name herbs. The sauce was good, but I did want more flavor on it----some fresh garlic would have been very nice in it. This is a good recipe, and I'll try it again. Thanks, Joanne H!

Mara's Blueberry Chutney

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I cut the recipe down but otherwise followed it as written, adding just a little more lemon to it after tasting it while it was warm. This offers a unique taste for sure! I served it alongside some pork tenderloin that we had, and it was a nice accompaniment! Thanks, Raven!

Portobello Mushroom Pasta with Basil

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I used crimini mushrooms (baby bellas) and followed the recipe as written. I would maybe have preferred to have the pasta a little more done, and I did think it lacked a little moisture---maybe water from the pasta. Balsamic vinegar does tend to make pasta look a little weird, but it does make it taste good. You could always use white balsamic vinegar as an alternative. Thanks, thesmiths!

Spicy Pepper and Onion

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
This is full of flavor and is very versatile in its use--as stated by the submitter. I put some of my leftovers on a turkey sandwich that I had for lunch, and it was great! Thank you, brenda!
