Reviewed Crock-Pot Chicken With Black Beans & Cream Cheese

Nov 8, 2014 in on

I was so hoping this would be the bomb, but it';s really meh at best. I mean, its not terrible, and maybe the salsa was the culprit - just not enough flavor. I used chipotle jalepeno red salsa - and it just lacks good flavor. I think I';d prefer green, if I could do it again. I am currently trying to "fix" it for the game tonight - and...

Reviewed Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast (Quick & Easy)

Jul 25, 2014 in on

This was quite tasty. I made a few changes to the recipe - added a quarter of an onion to the spinach in addition to the garlic and feta. Also I only had two chicken breasts and after I pounded them flat they were not very cooperative in rolling so I had a kind of chicken mess but it was still oh so tasty. As I only had two breasts I ended up ...

I too found this recipe on the Cooking Light website, and then when I tried to find it again the website took forever to load, so I came to my fav site, Food.Com. These muffins came out wonderfully! They were moist, light, and tasty. I topped them with some sanding sugar (didn't have turbinado or I'd have used that). I also used even lower fat...

1) Use FRESH yeast!
2) Used white bleached flour, but I did sub out about 1/3 of the flour for semolina flour.
3) I used the stand mixer for the beginning dough, scraping down the sides - used all 3 cups
4) 3-4 minutes in the stand mixer, on low with a dough hook, I took the slightly sticky dough out and kneaded it for...

This was super yummy! I used about a pound and a quarter of ground beef and omitted the wine - I never have alcohol on hand. Instead I used apple-cranberry juice (4 ounces, appx) and seasoned with garlic salt. It created a nice, meaty broth (as stated) and was just a super comforting cold night meal....(I also left off the parmesan, personal p...

Sep 25, 2012 in on

This was yum-o. We made it just the way it was written - I would add a jalepeno next time, just for a little heat. I loved the broth and it was so flavorful! It was not fishy - as other reviewers have pointed out, and I served with a crusty french bread which soaked the juices up nicely! Thanks for a good recipe!"

Reviewed Oatmeal-Peanut Butter Cookies

Sep 11, 2012 in on

I like peanut butter and I like oatmeal. Today I couldn't decide which to bake, so I tried these. I didn't add any raisins (as I don't care for them in cookies). I added a touch of vanilla and after my first batch it became obvious that these needed more flour. I ALWAYS have to add more flour to my oatmeal cookies or they spread out real thin...

This was yummy! My husband loved it. I did too - I would have liked a bit more kick, so next time I will increase the hot sauce. I quadrupled the sauce and doubled the salmon - I used the sauce on veggies and rice (just a tad) and the flavor was great!! We are trying to eat salmon once a week so the more recipes I have, the better.. Thanks a ...

I made this for my anniversary because I wanted to try something that would have a "wow" factor. That said, I prefer the red velvet cake made with oil. To me, this cake lacked moistness (and it wasn't overcooked). It was much better at room temperature than cold. The icing was a trick - I made two batches of the milk/flour mixture before I was...

This cake was OK. I believe I made it according to the instructions, but, I prefer the red velvet cake made with oil (a whole lot of oil) more. To me, this cake lacked moistness. It was much better at room temperature than cold. The icing was a trick - I made two batches of the milk/flour mixture before I was able to get *most* of the lumps o...

I made this icing today for birthday cake and cupcakes - it was my first attempt at anything other than standard powdered sugar fare. I must say I really like the smooth consistency and the mellow, sweet but not gagging-too-sweetness of the icing. I didn't find the process too difficult, but I followed it to a T the first time - the second time...

I am a die hard box-cake maker. I think they're tasty and reliable.. then my husband (who doesn't bake) suggested I try a scratch cake for my daughter's birthday. Well, I figured I'd try so I searched out cake recipes and came across a recipe AND a you tube video from this Warren Brown guy. His cake sounded so delicious and not to dif..."

I am hoping to create a cake for my daughter's birthday and I came across a technique called 'moldable chocolate' or 'plastic chocolate'. What it says to do is take a pound of chocolate (melted) and mix with Karo syrup. I used a candy coating that I bought from Country Kitchen Sweetart so I could use the nice purple color - and it melt..."

This was quite tasty. I forgot the chives at the end, oh well.. I can see a ton of variations on this - I like the idea of tossing asparagus in very much. The cod was flaky and tasty and just a little spicy (red pepper flakes) and sweet. Thank you for a healthy and tasty dinner! I served with sauteed spinach."

I liked this recipe. I loved Luby's fish - don't live near one anymore. I would love to come up with a way to crisp the outer part of the mayo. I agree it is flavorful. I use much less mayo and half-fat mayo, the kind made with olive oil. Thank you."

I enjoyed this very much! It was fast and simple. The only thing I would do differently is I would wrap the fish packets even more securely, as much of the liquid seeped out into the grill as I was cooking. I would like to have had more juice to mix with the rice. But, overall the flavor was good (I used reconstituted lemon juice because I di...
