Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
I made this recipe in the crock pot, exactly as it appears. The meat was very tender, very tasty. But I made the gravy from the drippings, and it was awful! It was so bland. I added salt, but that didn't do it. I guess I needed to finesse the gravy more, but I don't have enough experience with gravy to do this on the fly. Maybe I'll try it again sometime, after I devise a new "gravy" plan of attack!

Chicken Hurry

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
I had to double the sauce to cover 3 lbs of chicken. When doubling, I used a little less brown sugar. Also, I found uncovering the dish half way through baking, and even baking an additional 1/2 hour or so, thickened the sauce beautifully, and made it stick to the chicken pieces better. I liked it, and it was a hit with my husband (a very picky eater)!

Alienated Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
I fiddled with the recipe quite a bit to make it more healthy. I used all whole wheat flour, cut the sugar to 1 cup, 3 egg whites instead of 2 eggs, applesauce instead of oil and added about 1/4 c. wheat germ and 1/4 c. ground flax seed. I would not suggest substituting all of the oil with applesauce. I think it makes the muffins stick to the liners. Maybe use 1/4 cup each? Also, watch the muffins carefully as they bake. Mine didn't need anymore than 20 minutes at 375. I overbaked them at 23 minutes. Finally, I would keep all of the sugar in the recipe unless you prefer your muffins a bit more tart. Overall, my muffins turned out ok. Nothing special, but still a good breakfast.

Strawberry Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Made this for my daughter's 5th birthday party. I pureed 1 cup of diced fresh strawberries (rather than frozen) and substituted the white cake mix with french vanilla (per other members' suggestions). I whipped white icing and Cool Whip to ice the cake and decorated with fresh strawberries. It was a hit with the kids and many adults. I only gave it four stars, though, because I personally felt it was overly sweet.

Shrimp Scampi I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
I would do as reviewer monchichi suggests if you'd like to give this recipe a try. After all, it is tried and true. I followed the recipe EXACTLY, and it was awful. Way too much lemon juice! A slimy mess. And the shrimp weren't completely cooked. I used frozen uncooked shrimp, but my oven tends to run hot, so I figured it would even out. We had to microwave the meals before eating them. Yuck.
