Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I just made these for the first time. I pretty much stuck with the recipes, but made two notable changes: 1.) I doubled it, but kept the 9x13 pan size, since some reviews said it was too thin 2.) I chilled the first layer for 20 min. before adding the chocolate layer on top. The bar was way too thick, especially the graham layer; also, the chocolate layer separated from the graham layer. Next time, I will keep the graham layer the same, but double the chocolate, as well as NOT chilling the graham layer first and see what happens. As well, make sure your crumbs are fine, otherwise the bar will be a bit grainy.

Bahama-Mama Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
If you don't have chili sauce, I found that using an equal blend of bbq sauce and ketchup with a bit of hot sauce will work nicely.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
Despite following others' suggestions, my crust still came out soggy and there was too much egg and milk mixture and had to keep some out. Next time, I would reduce by one egg and maybe add a few less veggies.

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
This tastes pretty darn good for something so cheap. Wouldn't change a thing!

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
This is one satisfying soup! I just put in 1/2 of the bacon it asked for. And you have to have some garlic flavour in there, whether it's a bit of powder in the stock or sauteed with the leeks.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I've made this a few times, but it never really caught my attention. This past time, however, instead of a loaf, I followed another cook's suggestion and flattened it into a casserole. Also, I didn't have enough ground beef, so I tossed in some frozen, bite-sized veggies and reduced the milk a bit. It was so good that I wish I had more beef to make more!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Kept the recipes exactly as is, and it came out wonderfully. One bowl kept me full for the night. Might want to add more bacon in the soup next time.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I used ground chicken and added two dashes of cayenne for spice. Also used white sugar instead of brown. My fance loved it.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
I seasoned the pork with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then stab it with a fork a few times, as suggested by another commentor. Since I didn't have a slow cooker, I put it in my oven at 170 for 6.5 hours. (I would suggest going up to 200, since the pork still didn't shred easily) Shred the pork best I could, added enough BBQ sauce to coat it, and put it back in for an hour. Took it out and coated it again to serve it. And yes, it tastes even better the next day!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Ran out of ginger, so I added cayenne for some kick and only used 1/3 cup of sugar. Poured it over the chicken and baked at 375 for 45 min, as my chicken wasn't fully thawed.

Eye Candy

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
I had to use pork shoulder blade. You should probably pound the meat before putting them in the pinapple juice until they're all even.

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Due to some miscalculation and mistakes, I used hazelnuts instead of almonds, raspberry vinegrette instead of raspberry vinegar and skipped the balsamic vinegar. Still very nice and sweet.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
A good, easy to make chicken for pasta or sandwiches. I use fresh garlic instead of the salt.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
All I changed was that I pour some sauce over the chicken as well as under and switched the cheese to Mozzerella, which I added last 5 min. of cooking. My brother, who doesn't eat anything outside of a fast food box, loved it as did the rest of the family.

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
I've never had chicken salad before, but I really liked this recipe. I used chicken breast sauted with garlic for some kick and put it on toasted whole wheat bread. Two sandwiches will really fill you up!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
I never made rice pudding before and only had it once at a restuarant in Cuba. This recipe was so easy and good that I will definately use it again! Oh, and skipped the raisins.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
So easy to make, you don't even really need the recipe! Toss the chicken in a sealable bag with seasoning, add salsa, cook, add cheese, cook a little more. It's all about personal preference.

Cream Cheese Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
For some reason, this recipe did not turn out good at all. The edges burned and it seems like the cream cheese topping waasn't enough. The whole thing simply tasted burnt.

Spanish Rice Original

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
It's amazing how great this turned out by making a few mistakes! I used beef boullion in hot water due to a lack of chicken broth. Substitued shallots for onions, red peppers for green, and accidently added one whole teaspoon of chili powder. Skipped the cumin and added the corn. I couldn's stop eating this!
