Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I followed the recipe with the exception of the size pan. I used a square glass casserole as well as a rubbermaid Premier non staining 9-cup container (as the accompanying video did). I put the Rubbermaid container in the freezer for future use and baked the other. We were only feeding four people and it was more than enough. The dish came out great. I was afraid that the whole thing would turn out soggy but it did not. the sides and top were slightly crispy. The cheese was melted perfectly and the combination of the flavors were perfectly Mexican! We let the dish sit for 15 minutes before cutting and it held its shape. We added a dollop of sour cream and sliced olives to the top and served as is. I will be making this recipe many more times, I'm sure.

World's Best Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
All I can say is this is my new favorite sauce! I love the tastes and texture of this sauce and plan on using it again and again. It's good enough to eat just on bread!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
I've been meaning to make this for a while now & I finally did...sorry I waited so long. This recipe was wonderful. I took the advice of another reviewer and added 1/2 cup of sour cream and about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Everyone was looking for seconds!

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
SUPER SUPER easy and fast! My kids loved adding the heavy cream and a pinch of salt to the food processor and then watching it turn from a liquid to a solid in about 9 minutes. Once solid, I drained the excess liquid and used a piece of cheese cloth to squeeze out any remaining liquid from the "butter ball". What a wonderful recipe...a recipe you can use in so many other recipes...and it's a super fresh ingredient!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Truly easy to prepare and tastes wonderful!. I made this for my family quite a few times and have served it with Corned beef and each dish compliments each other. I too used a Kitchen Aid Stand mixer and the preparation was incredibly easy. I would definitely recommender this soda bread recipe to anyone. So simple to make and the taste is great!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
Delicious tasting. Easy to make. After marinating them for about an hour-and-a-half, I double skewered them and cooked them over a charcoal hibachi for a firework display that we were going to see. I couldn't get them off the grill quick enough. I had to claim the last two skewers for myself! Thank you BLONDIEPEREZ for sharing.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
An excellent recipe. the sauce came out thick and creamy and tasting better than any other Alfredo sauce I have ever had. I followed the recipe but did add one more clove of garlic only because we are all garlic fanatics here! I will definitely make this again.

Perfect Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I know that flat iron steaks are the new "in" steaks nowadays, so I was keen at trying them as I never had one. I came across this recipe and decided to take a ride to my local butcher's. I brought the steaks home and followed the recipe to a tee. The outcome was great! The steaks had a wonderful flavor from the marinade and were very juicy and tender. I cooked them medium rare (one medium) and they were perfect. I sautéed some button mushrooms in butter, olive oil and onion powder and served a small amount on top of the steak. I would make this recipe again and also use this cut of steak again.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
This is by far the best pumpkin bread I have ever made. the bread is moist and flavorful and oozes Autumn. Easy to make and great tasting. I always double the batch because in my family, the first three loaves last for about thirty minutes! Even the pumpkin haters in my family gobble it down. I too left the recipe as it was all the times I have made it and would not change it only because it is so good "status quo".

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
If I could give this recipe six stars, I would! It is soooo easy to make and tastes great. Everyone I have ever fed it to loves it and wants more (and the recipe). The "soup sauce" is warm, creamy and good tasting". I used two cans of cream of chicken soup, 2 cans of Cheddar soup and a bit more sour cream. The chicken is always moist, tender and tasty. Served over a bed of rice, it's the perfect feel good, cold day, easy made comfort food!

Chicken Chimichangas with Green Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
Yum! I was hesitant about the green sauce only because of the cream of chicken soup. I didn't think that it would stay true to the Mexican chimichangas. I was wrong; it was great. the chimichangas themselves were wonderful with the chicken, cream cheese mixture. The shells were crispy but not soaked with oil (I let them sit on paper towel after being fried). The whole dish was very easy to make. I ended up yielding 12 for 5 people and they were gone before dinner was done!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
Made this recipe on a rainy cool day (comfort food), and my family adored it. Warm, comforting, good tasting and super easy to make. I added cracker crumbs and Parmesan cheese on the top with a bit of melted butter and it came out great. This recipe will be saved and used many times again!

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
Made this pie over the summer when one of my friends brought us some fresh peaches (I had the raspberries). Was it yummy! The pie was full of flavor and not too sweet; it held together well, was nice and juicy, and went great with a scoopful of vanilla bean ice cream. By the end of the evening, there was one piece left! I would make this pie again.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
This is a wonderful Thai peanut sauce! I followed the recipe exactly. When i tasted it, I thought it was marginal (a little bit of a letdown). But...after sitting in the fridge for and hour and then being used with Thai Chicken Satay (recipe on this site - read my review), it was awesome! The various flavors in the sauce must have needed time to blend and accompanied by the taste of the marinated chicken, it was definitely 'The Best Thai Peanut Sauce"!

Pumpkin Pie Spice II

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
What can I say about this but super easy to make, great aroma and a wonderful way to make any dish really homemade. I'm going to make more spice blends around the holiday for gifts!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I've made this at least six times so far and every single time, the dish turns out great! I have a large family & we like seconds, so I double the recipe but that's the only thing I do differently to this recipe. It is already a favorite in our house and I recommend it to anyone else who likes corned beef & cabbage.

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
As I read this recipe, my thought was...regular old fried chicken tenders. so I read through the reviews to see what suggestions had been made. I saw the review from "Cooking 101" and decided to try it her way since my family enjoys hot sauce. I was leery about the amount of hot sauce used. I like a little kick but am not interested in 'melt your mouth off' hot. But I decided to use the full one cup of hot sauce anyway. I am soooo glad I did.I used the 3 eggs and 1/3 cup of water and I put in about 2 tablespoons each of garlic powder and onion powder as well as ground sea salt and freshly ground pepper. The outcome was so good that I ended up taking out another package of chicken and making the recipe all over again! By this morning, there were two-and-a-half strips left. I was also told this morning by my husband that they taste even better the next day. I served the chicken strips with Spanish yellow rice, a dollop of sour cream and homemade sweet & sour sauce (under this recipe from reviewer TizzyLizz - delicious). Thanks for the recipes and thanks for the improvement tips.

Indian Chapati Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
Super easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly and the outcome was great. I doubled the recipe ending up with 18 balls which made approximately 18 8-inch semi-round breads. I served them with Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken). Both recipes are delicious! I will be making this bread again!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Absolutely marvelous! I still can’t believe that potato chips can be made in a microwave! I made them and they looked like Cape Cod Potato Chips and tasted even better! I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil as well as freshly ground salt & pepper. Who knew that it could be this easy? Thank you so much for sharing!
