Parmesan Tilapia

17 Jul

Pretty good. 4 stars.

 

Okay, so if you want an easy, simple meal, that is tasty, this is it!  I would recommend if you are just making food for one person, quarter the recipe, because it makes a LOT! Also, it says to put it on the fish within the last 5 minutes; I would say, probably you can put it in sooner.  This was really good though.  Just be aware, that it might take a while.  Start to preheat the oven quickly and then you won’t have to wait as long.  Definitely 4 stars for this one, enjoy!

Revolutionary Mac ‘n’ Cheese

17 Jul

It’s not bad. We’ll give it a 3.

 

This was pretty good. Two roommates gave it 5 stars, one gave it 3 stars. I personally didn’t think it was anything to scream about so I gave it a 3, but I also didn’t follow the directions completely. I was out of cheddar, so I used some mozzarella. I think it would actually be really good if some broccoli and chicken were added into the mix. It was pretty simple for the most part though. I really think I would try it again, this time with cheddar cheese, and some broccoli and chicken, and then we’ll see how it goes!

Bow Tie Pasta with Broccoli Pesto

3 Jun

4 1/2 Stars! So good!

 

So with this recipe, it was pretty much just one of those inspired ones. We bought pesto in a jar, cooked noodles (any type works) according to directions, used chicken in a can (we shredded it), added the prescribed garlic and went to town. We pretty much just cooked the noodles, drained the water, and threw the ingredients in the pot until it looked good. We poured some lemon juice in, spooned in the pesto, threw in some salt and pepper and then steamed some broccoli for the side. Although this was a super simple, fairly quick meal, it was pretty delicious! We gave it 4 ½ stars. We also made it more than once. (It was that easy and that good).

Crock Pot Chicken Chili

3 Jun

5 stars! Try this recipe! So good!

This meal was AMAZING! The smell filled our apartment throughout the day and by the time we got to eat it, it was worth the wait. It didn’t take too much time to prepare, just the chopping and cutting and what not. We left out the chili peppers and put less chicken (we ran out of room in the crock pot) as well as a little less cumin and chili powder. We also put in only one can of tomatoes with chilies, and included one can of just plain tomatoes. It was still a bit spicy, but quite a bit milder. I guess it really depends on your preference of hotness. Remember to drain every can of anything that you put in, it makes a difference. Even with two less chicken breasts, this meal served the two of us for about a week, along with a couple bowls for other people. On top of that, small portion sizes are really filling. We gave this meal 5 stars; it was great all around!
