Tart Cherry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I had a pound of fresh sour cherries so I decided to use thoes. Because I only had a pound I halved the rest of the recipe. I thought it was really good but the tapioca was soft but it did leave a texture that I didn't particularly care for. My favorite is to use about a tablespoon of liquid pectin for a thickener. I also used one crust and made cut outs so you could see the berries. The brown sugar really gave it a subtle richness. I'll be making again with frozen cherries most likely.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
This recipe is excellent! I thought it was salty like many of the reviewers said. I used 1 tablespoon of extra course like the kind you get for salt grinders and mixed everthing in my morter and pestle I think I would cut the salt in half next time. I'm still rating it 5 stars because I really think this recipe is that good. Even with it being salty we still ate them all. They are also great cold left overs or on a salad.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Very good flavor however we used legs and they were very greasy. I followed the recipe exactly so I think I would prefer it with skinless breasts or like the author suggested as a marinade for a whole chicken instead.

Delicious Sweet and Buttery Bananas

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
This is G-O-O-D! I thought a cup of sugar would have been way to sweet so I added 2 TBS in all and it was just right. My husband and I immediately started thinking of things we could put it on like french toast, pancakes, vanilla yogurt, ice cream, shortcake, well you get the idea. Great little treat.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Yumm. I put green chilies in the cornbread like someone suggested and thought it was great. I only used one box of Jiffy mix and wish I would have used two like many people said. I also put refried beans in the bottom of my pan to streatch the meal. Great Dinner.

Guy Approved Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
My hubby said it was ok but I thought it was bleck. Needs much help. Very firm and not very juicy at all. It is the kind of Meatloaf that gives meatloaf a bad name in my book.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
These are super easy! I double the recipe and freeze what I don't use for next time. Now all I need is a noodle drying rack.

Texas Glazed Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
These were incredibly easy. I thought that they would be very sticky, and stick to the pan and everything else. I had no problems while they were baking, but they did stick a little after they cooled but they were sitting in a pool of the coating. They were a christmas favorite this year.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
My husband gives this a 5 but I think it is only a 4. I thought it was lacking in flavor. I'm sure some of that is I got a rice pilaf packet not knowing what else to use I like garlic a lot so maybe something with garlic in it next time would be better. I'm going to try to make this with my own seasonings to then I can make this much cheaper.

Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
The dumplings were huge with not much flavor, but the chicken part was great. Next time I'll make smaller dumplings.

Roasted Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I've made this twice in the last week. The first time I did not like it it was to bland but we already committed to take it to another party. Both times I used 1/2 cup of mayo and 1/2 cup of sour cream like many of the other recipes suggested but what changed it to a five star the last time I used the correct amount of salt and then unbeknowsnt to me my husband who was helping put some salt on the potatoes before roasting and would put a few grinds in everytime he mixed it up. We are not big salt fans around our house that is why I only put a pinch in the first time but this recipe deffinetly needs the salt to work. I also put more bacon in both times I made the recipe but that was more of our own prefrence.

Spicy BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
We unfortunately didn't get to grill our chicken we ran out of propane. I didn't cut my onions up enough and they were big chunks in the sauce. All in all it was great, the sauce has quite a sit up and pay attention flavor to it but once you cook it with your chicken it it simmers down a little. My husband hates vinegar so I put probably about 2 tablespoons of cider vinager in and I really didn't miss it.

Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
We usually get bugs in our pancake mixes before we use it all up so I was looking for a recipe that had everthing I always have on hand. I've made this several times and have never had the problems of some people with them being flat. I think the key is to have fresh self rizing flour or baking powder and let them sit for a little bit before you use the batter to let the baking powder activiate. We love this recipe, infact I usually end up doubling it and having left overs for the next morning.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I love hummus and can eat a little tub from the grocery store in one day if no one is watching me, but most of this went to waste. I made it just as written and it was bland, I fiddled with it and fiddled with it and never found anything to make it better. I doubled the amount of lemon juice and it was still toothpaste thick and bland. The only part of it we did eat was with some roasted garlic bread I got from the grocery but once that was gone the rest sat in the fridge. Very disapointing and I will keep looking, hopefully my next attempt will not turn out so bad, otherwise I will keep buying it from the store.

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
I have to say my husband loved this. It was a pregnancy craving for me so I didn't think he would even touch it. The reasons for only 4 stars. The vinager did absolutely nothing for me and I love vinager. Next time I make it I'm going to have more onions, and maybe add a little fresh garlic or garlic chives. Without the vinager it tastes like spring rolls.

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
We really didn't like this. It wasn't a waste of ingredients but we won't be making it again. To much butter, really to much dill. The flavors are a good idea but you can have to much of a good thing. I think if we would ever try it again we would put a pat of butter on each fillet, a slice of lemon and a sprig of fresh dill and steam it in a pouch.
