Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
this was not to our taste at all. I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and followed the recipe to the letter but the entire thing is in the trash can, minus a few bites. It had a very bitter taste and the smokiness was overwhelming. A complete waste of a lot of food and a lot of money. Sorry.

Cranberry Almond Biscotti

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
i have tried several biscotti recipes from this site with varying degrees of success (from dismal failure to kind of edible) but these are the business! they are easy to make, delicious to eat, and turn out like a proper biscotti! i substituted 3/4 cup of Splenda for sugar, and added 5 drops of Almond Oil in addition to the almond extract---they are terrific! thank you for a wonderful recipe!!

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
this was good, but just shy of the mark...it is reminiscent of Butter Chicken but missing something, and i'm not expert enough to know what that is! perhaps it is dependent on what kind of curry paste you use; i used Patak's Madras curry paste...however, even tho it isn't really Butter Chicken to me, it is a nice quasi-curry that i will be making again! thanks!!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
the flavor of these burgers is phenomenally good---plenty of spice, a little heat, loads of taste! mine came out a bit floppy, but i think that was because i was conservative with the bread crumbs; next time i will add more to achieve a firmer burger---thank you for this recipe!!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
well, it must be me; this is the third brownie recipe i've tried off this website, and the third disaster in a row...these, to their credit, were less of a disaster than the other ones, but a disaster nonetheless...how can people possibly be giving these 5 stars??? they are revoltingly sweet with no chocolate flavor, and are oily beyond all words to tell it...plus, they don't rise meaning i ended up with a pan of 1/2 inch high greasy sort-of-chocolate crackers...forget it: i'll buy box mixes...what a waste of ingredients

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
these are wonderful...i have made these twice now; the first time was a bit fraught, and i had to add some milk to get the dough to come together---i made the first batch with regular sugar, and tonight i've made the second batch with Splenda (again needing a little milk) and they are brilliant! they are light, sweet, delightful, and rise beautifully...only wish i could find some clotted Devonshire cream to have with them (Marscarpone cheese is a close but inferior substitute)---thank you!!! My husband, who is from England, said his aunt, a lifelong member of the Women's Institute would be proud to serve them :) High praise indeed!!!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
this was pretty good, but i guess i was expecting a more Oriental flavor, which this didn't have...I should have known when it contained tomatoes that it wasn't going to taste very Asian, but it was nice nonetheless. If i were to make it again I would have to change it some: leave out the tomatoes and add perhaps more cornstarch for a thicker gravy, and maybe some sherry

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Will not be making these again.how on earth did anyone have these stick to the pan????? mine were swimming in butter---they literally slid out of the pan if i tilted it; they have no flavor, no texture --not cakey, not fudgey, just like sand..

Oven Omelet

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
this was great with a few tweaks! i didn't have any prepared hash browns so i grated 2 large red potatoes into the eggs, used 1/2 lb of bacon (browned and crumbled) instead of ham, and included a sauteed onion and green pepper---turned out terrific! thank you!!

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
this was very good, moist, and easy to make; i think next time i will, like other posters, increase the amount of seasonings (oregano, pepper, parsley) and use chicken stock instead of water...i might even thicken it up a bit at the end to use as a gravy as opposed to a jus...my husband loved it, so this will definitely be a keeper---thanks!

I served this with crusty Italian bread and a simple salad---this will be a frequent meal at our house; thank you!!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
this turned out terrific! My local grocery store didn't have a deep dish pie crust so i divided the ingredients between 2 regular frozen pie crusts and it worked beautifully---thanks!

Cookie Jar Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
i hate to even rate this recipe, because i'm sure it was my fault: all these 5 star ratings, but my cookies came out lousy *has* to be down to my poor technique, but i don't know what i did wrong!!! i measured precisely, followed the directions, and they came out like little balls of sand---tasteless, no crunch, sandy texture...the only thing i changed was to increase the ginger to a tbsp...my "dough" was *very very* dry and sandy---i had to work like heck to mold them into anything resembling a ball.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
this is a great, easy soup but it needed a bit of dressing-up! i followed others' suggestions and added a can of cream of chicken soup (in lieu of one can of broth), some cumin, garlic, Adobo seasoning, and black pepper. Served it with shredded cheese, and warm, homemade cornbread---fantastic!!

Country Seed Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
dear me, another bread maker failure for me---i look at that photo of that beautiful loaf and want to weep: my hard, craggy, lumpy "bread" looked *nothing* like that and i followed the recipe to the letter...i have no idea what i'm doing wrong, but the result was a hard lump of baked dough with burnt seeds stuck to the bottom...same thing happened when i tried to make cinnamon raisin bread from this site...if anyone can tell me what i'm doing wrong, please do, because i don't want to be relegated to making *just* the recipes from the manufacturer's handbook!
