Chicken-Fried Steak Strips

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
It was good, but not spectacular. My son loved it, but the rest of us just thought it was okay. I was hoping the breading would be a little bit crunchier. I would add more seasoning if I tried it again.

Battered Chicken with Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
Easy way to make a simple battered chicken. Cook it enough to get coating dark. Also, maybe add spices to flour (e.g., cayenne). Skip gravy.

Noodle Nachos

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
Tasty, not spectacular, but Brady loved it and it's good for something a little different. Would probably be even better with spicy taco seasoning or spicy taco sauce when the kids get older.

3.5 stars. Good soup, but not terribly special.

Ranch Chicken 'N' Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This is a simple, delicious recipe. I followed the directions pretty closely. The only differences I made were that I used a little less butter (about 3 Tbsp.) and a 2.5 qt. dish instead of 2. I tried a 2 qt. dish, but it was too deep, so I used a standard square, shallow casserole dish. I also added a little bit of extra flavor by sprinkling the chicken with a little dill weed, garlic salt and lemon pepper before spooning the butter and milk on top. I think it would've been really good even without the extra spices, though. The best part was everyone loved it. My kids are so picky, but two of the three of them actually had seconds! Definitely a keeper!

Spicy Bok Choy in Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This was so good! I've never had bok choy before trying this recipe. It was delicious! I didn't have oyster sauce, so I just added a little extra soy sauce. I also halved the sugar since I'm not big on sweet. I will definitely be making this again. It had such a great flavor!

Sour Cream Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
We didn't care for this one. I followed the recipe pretty closely, except for using spinach instead of green pepper. When I added the nutmeg, it smelled strange to me so I added just a dash of chili powder. That helped the weird smell somewhat, but the resulting dish was still pretty bland. It was okay, but I won't make it again.

Chocolate Pretzels

Simple and yummy. I prefer the Rolo ones to the M&M ones.

Crouton Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I really liked this recipe even though I made changes. I feel okay rating it even with the changes because it's one of those recipes that's easily modified to suit different tastes. Based on other reviews, here's what I did. I sprayed the dish with butter-flavored Pam instead of using butter. I used a whole bag (about 1 1/2 cups) of Texas Toast Garlic and Butter croutons, which added a great flavor. I used 5 eggs, but kept the milk at 3/4 cup. I also left out the mustard, used bacon bits instead of ham, and put the cheese on top with 2-3 minutes of cooking time left. For anyone wanting to use bacon bits instead of ham, I cooked up 8 strips of bacon (1/2 a package), and that seemed just right for us. Oh, I also didn't let it soak overnight. I just let it soak while I cooked and crumbled the bacon, and it turned out fine. Everyone gobbled it up!

Alicia's Aloo Gobi

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
This was very good! I just had Aloo Gobi for the first time at a local Indian restaurant and decided I had to try it at home. This was very similar to the restaurant recipe. I did leave out the garam masala based on another review. Also, I only used about 1/2 the can of coconut milk and 1/2 the cayenne pepper. This was perfect for us -- very spicy without being overpowering. However, for authenticity, I'd use the full amount of cayenne called for in this recipe. The restaurant Aloo Gobi we had was much spicier than this version was using half the cayenne, so 1 Tbsp. is probably just about right for real Aloo Gobi.

Meatball Potato Supper

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This is delicious! I've made it as written (except for baking the meatballs), but it always takes forever to cook. Last week, I tried it with a 30-oz. bag of frozen hash browns instead. I let it thaw just enough to break it apart and cooked the casserole for about 40 to 45 minutes. It was just as delicious, quick to make and cook, and easier than slicing potatoes! Also, I used a 9x13 dish since this casserole is so bulky.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Delicious! I cut the butter in half and used minced onions (husband doesn't love onions like I do). Also, I only used half the Velveeta, but next time I'll use the full pound. This was so good, even my 1st grader gobbled it up!

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This was delicious! I used a real egg and added a few spices. Before dipping in egg, I sprinkled garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder and a little cayenne pepper on both sides of the chicken. I like the chicken itself to have a little flavor, but this recipe is still great as is. The breading was nice and crunchy!

Sweet and Spicy Almonds

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I made several different nut recipes today, and this is the one I can't stop eating. The only change I made was to use Splenda instead of sugar. This is so good!!! It's just slightly sweet and slightly spicy, which is a refreshing change from most recipes for nuts that are incredibly sweet or way too spicy -- plus, it's an interesting taste to have both in one recipe.

Sweet Pretzel Nuggets

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Even though it's been rated plenty of times, I had to add my two cents. Yummy, yummy, yummy, and dirt-simple to make! These are almost too delicious because I can't stop eating them! The only difference I made was to add 2 tsp. cinnamon instead of 1 1/2, just because I didn't want to use two measuring spoons and I love cinnamon.

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I made this pretty much exactly as written and it was delicious! I probably added a bit more garlic and my "pinch" of red pepper was 1/4 teaspoon. It had a unique flavor with a slight kick. Very good! I don't know why some are suggesting using less vinegar. I thought it was perfect.

Chicken Spectacular

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I've been making almost the exact same recipe for years and it is delicious! My only suggestions are to use 2 Tbsp. minced onions if you don't want to deal with crunchy onions and to use Uncle Ben's wild rice with the original seasonings. Also, my Mom's secret, which I think makes this recipe go from very good to spectacular, is to cook the wild rice in chicken broth instead of water. Yummy!!

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
These are delicious! I made them without the walnuts. If you've ever eaten the store-bought prepared cookie dough straight from the freezer, this tastes exactly the same. Yummy!
