Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This was very good. I think there are ways to improve upon it, which is why I gave it 4 stars. I did change a couple of things. I used a ziploc bag for the marinating process, I didn't add any garlic powder, but added 4 tablespoons of minced garlic, I used a whole bottle of Guinness, 1 TBSP of Soy Sauce, 5 TBSP of brown sugar, 1 TBSP on Worcestershire Sauce, and a TBSP of black pepper. I didn't have any teryaki on hand, which is why I used the soy sauce. We used a tri-tip and marinated it for about 10 hours. Threw it on the grill for about an hour and it was really tasty. My husband really liked this recipe. I think next time I'll through in a couple of jalapeno's during the marinating and some cayenne for a little heat.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
This stuff is addicting! I was a little skeptical because it didn't taste very good warm. But once it had cooled completely it was delicious! I double the recipe. Using 8 cups of berries, 1/2 cup of lemon juice but only 3 cups of sugar. I didn't think the plate test was necessary because it was pretty obvious when it was ready to come off the burner. It reduces WAY down, and really thickens up. Looks almost maroon in color. It turned out perfect, and I will definitely make this again, might even try it with other fruit.

Golden Mushroom Pork & Apples

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
While the pork turned out great, I also thought the sauce was really lacking flavor. Even though I scaled the recipe down to 4 servings, I kept the 2 cans of soup because other people had mentioned the lack of flavor. I was hoping that would help...it did not. This would be a great dish, but you really have to doctor up the sauce.

Chocolate Chip Mini-Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
These were incredibly tasty and easy to make. I used butter flavored Crisco, and regular size chocolate chips and they turned out perfect.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
These are simply amazing! Just amazing.... I followed the recipe pretty much how it was written except I don't have a bread machine, so my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment worked great. Once dough was mixed, I let the mixer have at it for about 5 minutes, and then kneaded the dough for another 5 by hand. I doubled the filling recipe because I like ooey, gooey cinnamon rolls! Rolled out the dough, filled it up with the filling and raisins (didn't have any nuts), and then let the rolls raise for about 45 minutes. Baked as recipe stated, used the recipe icing, which was perfect. I'm going to have to freeze some of these bad boys because I could seriously eat the whole pan! BY MYSELF! These take awhile to finally get your end product, but having the stand mixer doesn't make them tedious to make. Will definitely be making these again..and again..and again....thanks for sharing!

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
These were delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, except I added a chunk of salt pork to the beans while they were cooking. I cooked it all in the slow cooker on high for 6....and they were great! Even better the next day after cooking for another 4. Would do these again.....exactly the same.

Amazing Southwest Cilantro Lime Mango Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This was really delicious. I only followed the marinade and the salsa recipe. I didn't zest the lime, just added the juice and used regular chili powder because I didn't want to spend $8 on the Chipoltle kind and it came out GREAT! My husband and I were quite pleased with how this turned out and would cook it again.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
WOW! This recipe was so easy to make. I love the fact that I always have all the ingredients in my pantry. All I have to do is take the banana's out of the freezer! I did add a tsp of vanilla and a half cup of walnuts. My husband was thrilled with this recipe. I will definitely be using it from now on! Thanks!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
I have to say that this recipe was much better than the Barefoot Contessa recipe I tried! I made 2 separate batches of these, one with almond extract and one without, and personally I liked the one without better. I also found that I didn't even need to use parchment paper if I just greased the cookie sheet really well. My other advice would be not to use a stoneware cookie sheet, they tend to take longer to cook, and don't brown as nicely in my opinion. I drizzled chocolate on top for some added fancy since it is the holidays, and I rolled the batter into little balls (much smaller than a golf ball) and then pressed my thumb in the middle. It made the perfect little bite size cookie! Overall I am really happy with this recipe and definitely would make these again and again! Plus, they were a HUGE hit with my family...there weren't any left and no one could stay away from them!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Super tasty, and SO easy to make. Definitely is going to become a go-to salad in our house. The only changes I made were to add Pecans instead of Sunflower Seeds (had pecans handy) and craisins instead of raisins...again...had the craisins on hand. I also added some black pepper. DELICIOUS! Even the husband liked it, and that's saying a lot because he's not much of a salad guy.

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
This is so easy to make, however, I'm not sure why it doesn't call for milk or buttermilk. It comes out way too thick to be a dressing. The consistency is more like a dip in my opinion. So, to remedy that I add about a half cup of milk. I also added a tablespoon of pepper, but that is just a matter of preference. I gave it four stars just due to the fact that as written the recipe is really more of a dip than a dressing. Would make again, but with alterations.

Absolutely the BEST Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing Ever!

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
Simply delicious! Even my husband, who is a die hard blue cheese dressing lover, LOVED it. I don't think I could ever go back to bottled dressing after this.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Wow! This was really easy, and very delicious! I didn't change much, other than using all chicken stock, adding some zucchini, and using chicken breast. Definitely a keeper, and a must have recipe!

Apple Pecan Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
While this was tasty, I really thought it was missing something. I followed the recipe exactly, and just felt like it wasn't nearly as tasty as an apple crisp. I think maybe the cobbler part was what killed it for me. I did like the pecans in it though, and might have to try adding those to my crisp recipe.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
OH SO GOOD! I can see why these are award winning. I followed the recipe exactly and had no problems with it. I did use parchment paper when baking for easy removal, and baked the cookies for the recommended 11-12 minutes. They came out perfect. The recipe makes A LOT of cookies. I used a medium cookie scoop, and got about 8 dozen cookies total. I also froze about half of the dough and the cookies still came out tasting great! I did use salted butter, and so I did not add any additional salt as other reviewers did. I think the one thing I would change would be to cut back on the amount of chocolate chips. 4 cups was a lot, and I don't care for more chocolate than dough. But they were still delicious, and will be a favorite in our house.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This worked ok. It wasn't quite what I was looking for. Once the frosting dried it look very dull, but at least the flavor was good.

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
Pretty tasty. Though in my opinion the sauce could use more flavor. Maybe an herb, or garlic. Something. Next time I will salt and pepper more to taste, as I followed the recipe exactly. makes a TON of food. I also added a whole bag of frozen peas. But really you could add frozen corn, carrots. etc. Very kid friendly though.

Chocolate Wave Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
Very good. I followed the recipe exactly except for the nuts. It turned out very moist and tasty. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I think next time I would want more of a chocolaty taste and would make the whole thing chocolate. Very easy recipe though, and a great way to use up summer zucchini.

Salsa II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
HOLY SMOKES! This is so hot! This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. My hubby loves spicy, so it was great for him. This was a little too spicy for me! But if you're going for quantity this is the recipe. This made a TON of salsa. The only thing I did different was to add a bunch of green onions, a teaspoon of coriander. I didn't bother boiling any of the tomatoes. Just used my food processor. Super easy, and really good. I would just take out the cayenne and a few of the peppers next time!
