Mindy's Berry Nice Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
My kids and I made this and just couldn't get past the taste of the wheat germ. It added a somewhat bitter aftertaste that we didn't care for.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Excellent! Next time I will use mini paper liners, because I had a heck of a time getting these out of the pan. Extremely difficult to eat just one...

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I'm sorry, but the way this recipe is written only earns it one star! We eat a lot of tilapia here in southern California, and I can tell you that 30 minutes to cook it is way, way, way too long! I cooked mine 10 minutes and it was perfect. Also, because I like to keep things simple, I just combined all the sauce ingredients together at once, instead of adding them separately. I decided to cook the sauce a bit before pouring it over the fish because I don't like raw garlic. The way I prepared this recipe was a big hit, and I will make it many more times.

Zucchini Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
My family loved these muffins, but I have to give them 4 stars because I didn't make the recipe exactly as written. I messed up and bought spice cake mix instead of carrot cake mix. I went ahead and used it though, and actually really loved the result. I omitted the raisins, and used 1 cup of zucchini and 1 cup of grated carrots to make up for the fact that I had the wrong cake mix. I also frosted the muffins with some leftover maple cream cheese icing. Fantastic!!

Colossal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
4 out of 4 people in my house decided that these cookies just weren't that great. I quit after making only about dozen or so. The flavor of these was just off somehow - too much peanut butter maybe? I'm not sure, but being as how our family loves cookies, we know when a recipe isn't to our liking. These weren't.

Lisa's Favorite Carne Asada Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I think the ingredients in this are spot on, but the ratios might be a little off for me. I halved the citrus juices while leaving the other ingredients the same. I also added some green onion. I was out of chipotle so I just omitted it, but I think it would taste great and will make sure to get it next time. I threw everything in a blender to make a better consistency to penetrate the meat. After tasting it, I added a bit of water to thin it out and mellow out the flavor a bit. I will continue to play with this marinade. Good base recipe! Also, I need to mention that beef flap meat is a better choice than flank steak.

Amy's Barbecue Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
I like this version of chicken salad, but I added some iceberg lettuce (for crunch), and instead of just plain chopped tomato, I used pico de gallo.

Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I liked this recipe as a marinade for chicken. I followed the measurements, but went a bit scant on the soy sauce. To make it into a sauce, I boiled it down, added some honey, and then thickened it with a bit of cornstarch mixed with cold water.

St. Louis Toasted Ravioli

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
The concept of this was much better than the actual result. I think it's because I used a poor quality store bought pasta. I used Buitoni, and the pasta was rubbery and dry. Ugh. The coating was delicious, though, so I would be willing to give it another try, but with much better pasta. I used my homemade marinara sauce as a dip instead of jarred spaghetti sauce, and added some garlic powder to the coating.

Calzone

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
I think this is a pretty decent recipe, and I will most definitely make it again. That being said, I did make some changes to the recipe: I let the dough rest for 30 min. after it came out of the bread machine because it was too elastic to roll out right away. I also folded in some garlic powder, salt, and crumbled Italian herbs into the dough before I rolled it out. I put garlic powder into the melted butter that I brushed on top, and I sprinkled grated parmesan cheese on top of that. I thought the calzone was just a touch too bready, so next time I will discard about a third of the dough before rolling it out to make the ratio more to my liking. This is a fun recipe to play with! EDITED TO ADD: I decided that I didn't want to throw out the extra dough, so I ended up splitting the dough in half to make 2 separate calzones for us all. Worked out beautifully and eliminated the waste!

Mini Crescent Dogs

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
These were so simple to make and so tasty! Will definitely make these again as appetizers. I could actually see eating these alongside some eggs for breakfast!

Creamy Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I started out by making this recipe as directed, but when I tasted it, the tang from the cream cheese was just overwhelming, so I added a significant amount of extra brown sugar. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. Even with those changes it still wasn't a winner for our family. I won't be making this again. Sorry!

Tender Potato Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I thought this recipe was just okay, although my family seemed to like it. I substituted all milk for the liquid, cut the sugar down to 1/8 cup, added some grated cheddar, and used garlic salt instead of regular. I brushed the tops of them with melted butter instead of milk. They sort of reminded me of the Red Lobster biscuits!

Caramel Heavenlies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
These are rich and delicious. I sprayed my foil generously with Pam and didn't have any problems with sticking. I also layered my almonds with the marshmallows and coconut, and poured the caramel over it all. Worked just fine. I didn't have any sliced almonds in the house so I used chopped ones and actually liked these a lot better. They had more crunch and added a great texture to the cookies. This recipe has earned a place in our permanent family collection.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This is one of those recipes that you automatically expect to be a big hit. I must say that this was a big miss for us. Too wet, too sweet, too gooey. I guess everyone else likes their cinnamon rolls different than we do. This won't be a repeat in our house.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
I think this recipe needs some spices for better flavor. I ended up adding some thyme, parsley, basil, marjoram, garlic powder, and sage. I also used up some leftover mashed potatoes to thicken the stock - worked beautifully. I used half of the butter/flour amounts and just thickened some of the stock with the mashed potatoes in the blender and threw it in the pot with everything else. Worked out great!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I made this last night and everyone around the table loved it. I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic because I was concerned it would overbrown and make the dish bitter. I also added some broccoli because I had it on hand. Omitted the parsley because I didn't think it was necessary. There was no need to waste a plastic bag, either. Just dump all the ingredients into the pan and mix with your hands. This is a terrific winter side dish!

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I added more pecans and as a result I think the center mixture was a bit dry. This recipe didn't say how thin to roll the dough - I did about a 1/4 inch and thought it was a too thick, next time I'll roll it out to 1/8 inch or less. I should mention that I made these in the mini muffin pans. I decided to make a quick caramel sauce (melted caramels and cream) to top these since mine were a little on the dry side. I still think I need to play with the proportions to get these exactly the way I want them to come out. Great start, though!

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
I thought this recipe was a bit heavy on the rosemary. I added the wine prior to putting the roast in the oven. This recipe was decent, and the family enjoyed it.

Borboletas

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I used Greek salad dressing instead of Italian because it sounded better with the Greek flavors in the salad. I definitely preferred this as a cold side dish. Great in the summer.
