BBQ Chicken Calzones

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
I did not like this recipe. Although edible, it really ended up tasting like bread with BBQ sauce on it. I couldn't taste the onions and chicken at all, despite adding more onions than recommended. I did not use bacon in this recipe, and added dried instead of fresh cilantro. Used with Jay's Signature pizza crust recipe from this site. Will not make again. I do have a suggestion for cooking the chicken (I've done this before when I made regular BBQ chicken pizzas and it turned out well)- cook your chicken in the slow cooker all day with a can of chicken stock, and then shred it when you're ready to cook your pizza- that really brings out the chicken flavor.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
Not too bad, however, not what I was looking for. I like a slight 'tang' to my coleslaw dressing (and am used to getting this in restaurants), but this had too much. It was very creamy though. I will make again, but reduce the lemon juice and vinegar next time. When you first pour the dressing on, it seems like there's not enough, but after it chills for an hour, it develops into that creamy consistency you're used to.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
Very good. I used a different (cheaper) cut of sirloin, but can't remember which. Made recipe as is, adding one small clove minced garlic & green peppers at last 2 hours per others' recommendations. Very savory and the slow cooking makes the meat very tender. Next time I'd add an additional clove of garlic. Delicious, thick gravy- the onions and tomatoes practically disappear into it!

Easy Strawberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
Made with pink lemonade. Wonderful summer drink, so refreshing. Might want to "mush" your strawberries a bit as you add them, as this will extract more flavor. VERY easy to make!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
These were perfect for iced sugar cookies. I did not have the ingredients to make icing, so baked them plain. They were good, but not as sweet as I'd like, but perfect for icing (because sweet cookies + icing= TOO sweet). Made recipe as is. Dough was delicious and they were perfect for rolling out and cutting with cookie cutters.

Italian Peas

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Dee-licious. Made as is and sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top. I've noticed a theme in many Italian dishes to use the chicken broth-garlic-onion combo, and am very fond of it. Would recommend these flavors for asparagus as well. This was a perfect side to the Spaghetti Carbonara II recipe found on this website.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Very rich & delicious. Made recipe as stated, there was more than enough icing. This is a bit time-intensive, but definitely not labor-intensive. Well worth it on those special occasions.

Grilled Shrimp and Apple Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Only had cocktail/cooked shrimp so that's what I used. Did not use the apples, and the grill wasn't working to I ended up baking these on a foil-lined cookie sheet in a 350 degrees F oven for about 5-10 minutes. The marinade was delicious, I would like to use it on other seafoods and meats. My four year old gobbled this up.

Grilled Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Absolutely delicious! Not your boring old broccoli at all. Well, the grill would not work so I just baked these in a foil packet in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 5 minutes. Lemon and cheese add a delicious flavor, almost reminds me of chicken picatta. Try this!

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
Very tangy marinade, a good balance to the broccoli. I used regular yellow mustard instead of dijon, and only marinated 1 1/2 hours. Very flavorful and tangy. I would make again, probably adding some other vegetables to the mix (cucumbers, peppers, or peas would be nice).

Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
This was good, but a bit bland. I guess I was hoping for more barbeque flavor because of the title. I used regular sized cocktail shrimp (cooked and flash-frozen), and turkey bacon. I pre-cooked the bacon as recommended, and thawed the cocktail shrimp, then wrapped two shrimps in one piece of bacon. It only needed to bake in the oven for 5 minutes. I would like to try this with a marinade or barbeque sauce and see if that helps the flavor. However, they still tasted good.

Chicken Fajita Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
Very good. Maybe it's just my oven, but cook time should be much shorter- after 5 minutes in the 425 degree oven the crust was browned, and when toppings were added, only needed 1-2 minutes to melt the cheese. Substituted garlic powder (1 tsp.) for the clove, and added corn meal to the bottom of the crust as another reviewer suggested. We served topped with lettuce & tomatoes. Very delicious, and a quick weeknight meal. Only recommendation I have is to use a thicker crust or make your own as it has to hold these heavier toppings- the store bought one didn't really cut it.

Lemon Rosemary Salmon

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Very moist & flavorful. I made as stated, but wrapped everything in a foil packet as another reviewer had suggested. Cooking time took about 20 minutes longer, but my salmon was not quite thawed yet so it might have affected cooking time. Will make again!

Orange Glorious I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
Perfect recipe- made exactly as is, and it tasted like a creamsicle smoothie. We all couldn't stop sipping this! Quick and easy too.

Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
These are great! I like that the frozen strawberries added a real fruit taste, but the syrup made them sweet too. Not sugary like the frozen mixes you get at the store, delicious more like the ones you order at a good restaurant.

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This bread was very good, moist, and with good flavor when a few exceptions were made. I followed one reviewer's suggestion to halve the recipe, but still add the full 15 oz can of pumpkin. I also added the full amount of pumpkin pie spice. The title is a bit misleading, as I didn't really think this tasted different than your standard pumpkin bread- but it was still delicious as that.

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
Very chewy and light texture. This was a very easy and simple recipe and had delicious results. I used a little more than what recipe called for when scooping onto cookie sheet as 1 tsp. seemed too small (about 1 tablespoon). Came out the perfect size. Also dipped in milk chocolate, using those Baker's melting containers in the baking aisle. Almost tastes like an Almond Joy, minus the almond and with much better texture!

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
What a great comfort food. I've never tried making or even tried spaghetti carbonara before this. Recipe was easy to follow, I used White Zinfandel for the wine and added 2 handfuls of frozen peas at the final step (when adding the bacon & pasta back into the pan). Delicious combination of flavors, my usually picky 4 year old wanted 2nds and 3rds on this!

Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Mmmmm.. added 2 tablespoons butter to the recipe, and used milk choc chips (didn't have full 2 cups, so only used about 1 1/2 cups). Still, these were delicious! Not overwhelmingly coconut flavored, so if you're in for that, I'd suggest adding another 1/2 to 1 cup. The batter spread out as it baked to make very chewy, delicious cookies. You may want to chill before baking if you'd like your cookies to maintain their shape. The coconut adds a sweet & unique taste & texture. The coconut flavor really comes out after they've cooled.

Seasoned Potato Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Used Pinzey's Pasta Sprinkle instead of Italian seasoning, and no salt. Tons of flavor, very delicious. Fries were perfect texture too, not too greasy, not too crunchy. Served with ketchup, we gobbled these up!
