Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
Quick and easy dinner. Yummy. I used bacon instead of prosciutto and put it on the top rack so it would crisp the bacon a bit, which caused a shell of sorts that trapped in heat and moisture. :) I think this would also be yummy with a nice meltable cheese inside.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
As-is, I give this recipe a 3. It lacked serious seasoning, but was a great base. I made it per the instructions, then after it was done, added a few things. Here's what I added: one packet McCormick brown gravy mix, extra kosher salt (to taste), a few dashes of Tony Chachere's seasoning. I'll make it again, but next time I'll add a can of sweet peas (I think they're important in beef stew) and extra carrots. It's yummy with the additions, though. Also, I didn't have red wine (the only part I initially didn't do per recipe), but I deglazed the pan with the same amount if water.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I thought this recipe was delicious! Especially since it's a crock-pot recipe! I made it one day as a diet thing (to eat some soup before each meal to eliminate calories) and I've thoroughly enjoyed it--which is not common for me with tortilla soup. I usually feel like they have too much chili powder, but this one is not like that. The only thing that I think is a little less-than-great is the canned tomatoes. I want to try to find some jarred peeled tomatoes next time because I feel like canned tomatoes taste a little like aluminum (but that's just a personal preference thing). Also, for the chicken, I used about 5-6 chicken tenders and boiled them in salted water, then shredded them myself.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
Nice crust. Easy to make. Only suggestion is if you are going to use it for a sweet pie (as opposed to a pot pie or something), you may want to add a little sugar. Either add a lil powdered sugar and water or a lil granulated sugar.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
Great pie! I am more of a tart person than a pie person because pies generally have a bunch of added sugar and the filling is like the canned stuff (syrupy), which I think makes it taste less like the type of fruit you use. However, this recipe uses almost only the fruit for the filling and it's delicious! Not full of a branch of spices, either. The apple shines through. The only two suggestions I'd make are to use half granny smith and half red delicious apples to avoid overly tart flavor, and to make sure you take the sugar mixture off of the fire as soon as the sugar melts. If not, you'll end up with caramel and have to redo it.

Sesame Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Love the way the sesame oil tastes and the way its scent lingers in the air when I'm done cooking. Didn't have sesame seeds to add, but would like to try that. I used someone else's advice to try lemon pepper seasoning, but I also sprinkled a tad of the Italian seasoning. I'd also like to try this with ginger next time for a Hawaiian flair.

N'Awlins Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I had to doctor it up a bit. I also am from south Louisiana, but we make them a little different. The mix had a decent flavor, but needed some moisture. I added rice (as we always do in my region for stuffed peppers), extra garlic, a little tomato sauce, a little chicken stock (didn't have beef), and a lil extra bread crumbs (as I didn't have bread stuffing to start with). I took others' advice and blached them ahead of time, then topped them before baking with a sprinkle of bread crumbs and some cheddar cheese crumbles. The family liked it, but I wasn't very impressed.

Cheesecake Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I thought this dip was fabulous. Caviat: I orginally made this recipe as is, and it was good, but I felt like I wanted more of the cheesecake flavor and less of the whipped cream flavor. So, I put in another block of cream cheese. Now, I made this recipe for 40 people, so my ratio was 2 blocks cream cheese (8 oz), one large tub of whipped cream, 1/3 cup of milk (not adding more milk helped thicken it a bit), and added powdered (not granulated) sugar to taste. I found it had more of a cheesecake flavor this way, but both ways were delicious, depending on your tastes. PS--I made it as a fruit dip for a shower, but it is very similar to what we use for Mississippi Mud Pie. Great!

Creamy Potato Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
I thought this was a nice little recipe. I can't really review the exact recipe though because i changed a few things for what I had on hand. I used asparagus chopped up (instead of broccoli), store-cooked rotisserie chicken (instead of ham or smoked turkey), and for cheeses I substituted the Parmesan with cheddar and the swiss with mozzarella. Those cheeses were cheaper and I thought they might go better with potatoes and Alfredo. It was pretty good!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
I thought this was very tasty, but a different take than I was expecting because there is so much basil in it. I'd recommend using much less basil and adding some extra garlic and some Tony Chachere's seasoning until you like the flavor.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Followed another review by browning chops a little (not cooking them all the way through) in a skillet with seasoning mix (frozen) and mushrooms in the grease (olive oil) I used to brown the chops. Add the soup and a half-can of milk. Then put them in the bottom of a glass pan and poured the sauce on top. Baked at 350 for about an hour. Served over brown rice with a French style vinaigrette salad and whole (frozen) green beens (with butter). Yummy and easy!

This was my first turkey ever and it came out perfectly brown. Everyone loved the way it stayed so moist in the pan.

Creole Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Flavor was great. The only suggestion I have is to use about half of a jalapeno. I'm from Louisiana, and it was too spicy for my family. This recipe makes a TON!

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
These green beans were phenomenal. Use a huge skillet, though. They make a lot more than they seem to make!
