Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
Very Good! I omitted the lemon pepper, but left the rest of the recipe the same. I made them for snacks for the holiday weekend. Now they just have to last until my company arrives!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
Very good! I subbed pickels for the green onion and used dijon mustard. I liked the addition of paprika. Served it on a bun with lettuce, tomato, and a few more pickle planks. Thanks Wifey!!

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
These were quite good. I used my crock-pot the recipe with my 10 hour setting, but I don't recommend going over 8 hours. Thanks for the recipe!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
This was pretty good. I've never had a sweet coleslaw before, and I thought adding poppy seeds was interesting. I'll probably make it again, but I do prefer the KFC Copycat recipe.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
Yummy! Made as called for, except for adding peanut butter chips as well as regular semi-sweet chips. Even my husband who isn't a chocoholic like me loved these. For sure a make again recipe!

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
Very good. I thought it was nice to have a slightly healthier white bread recipe to make. The only change I made was to use bread flour. I will be making this again!

Grilled Broccoli

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This was very good, but a little too strong on the lemon flavor for us. We made it on the grill using a grill basket. That way we didn't have to deal with flare-ups from spraying the grates and it made clean-up easier. We'll definitly be making it again, but I will reduce the lemon. Thanks for the great summer recipe!

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
My husband really didnt' like this, and I just thought it was okay. I made it as-is, and should have followed suggestions of others to reduce the soy sauce.

Crab Rangoon III

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Yum! These were great! I only used 1 can of crab meat and left out the water chestnuts, and it was perfect. My biggest struggle with this recipe was figuring out how to fold the wrappers! Served with Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts from this site. Great meal! We'll be having this again.

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
This had an okay taste to it, but I just couldn't get over the smell of tomato. Since scent plays such a big part in taste, I just didn't really like this. Also, I wish I would have paid better attention to the serving size before I made this, because dinner for 4 sure didn't need 48 servings of this!

Broiled Asparagus with Lemon Tarragon Dressing

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
This was a pleasant combination of flavors. I did over cook my asparagus though... Also alot of the shallots ended up just on the bottom of my serving dish and not being eaten. N*R

Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
This was wonderful! It tasted better than the take-out we get! I did make a few minor changes. I cooked my chicken in olive oil with a dash of sesame oil, added 2 celery stalks to the veggies, added 1 tsp. minced garlic, and subbed 3/4 tsp. fresh grated ginger for the ground ginger. This is the best Chinese food recipe we have tried yet from this site. Thanks Tricia!!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
This was wonderful! The bread was still a little warm when we ate it, and the smell of the rosemary coming off the bread was lovely, which only helped the taste of course!

Deep South Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
My husband asked for fried chicken, so I looked around this site and decided on this one. I'm very glad I did. It was very easy to make, crisped up beautifully, and tasted great. I followed the recipe as stated, except I didn't use cast iron, I just used my largest fry pan. He loved it! Thanks for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
I can't say that I normally make stew on the last day of April, but it's been a cold and chilly year so far! I made it as the recipe stated, and this was quite good. It reminded my husband of the stew that his mom made for him growing up. The only thing his mom did differently was to finish the stew in the oven with some drop biscuits on top of it. I guess I'll be trying that the next time I make this, which hopefully will not be until fall! Thanks for the recipe.

Stir-Fried Chicken and Rice Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
This was good, but it was a little sweeter than I expected it to be. I basically followed the recipe, except I omitted the peanuts since I didn't have any on hand and I increased the noodles since 3 oz. didn't seem like a lot of noodles for 6 servings. I used about 3/4 of a 14 oz. box of rice noodles, and that seemed to be a good amount to me.

Blueberry-Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
This was very good. It was very dense and moist, and the fruits complemeted each other well. My husband really enjoyed it, and if it's not carrot cake, he usually could care less! I used frozen blueberries and canned peaches (which I drained and rinsed). I also used 3 large eggs instead of the egg-substitute. I baked it in a bundt pan and when I served it, topped it with some fresh whipped cream made with heavy cream, a little vanilla, and a little powdered sugar. I am looking forward to making it again when fresh peaches are in season here. Thanks for the recipe! N * R

Chicken and Bowtie Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
This was great! I made it for my birthday dinner tonight, and it was better than going out to a restaurant. I followed a few recommendations of other reviewers. I used 1 tsp. of chicken base instead of 1/4 of a boullion cube, upped the proscuitto to 1/2 cup and used about 1 1/2 c. of baby bella mushrooms. As for the chicken, I had some that I had already pulled left over from a cut up fryer I had boiled, so I just used that. This was wonderful, and we will definatly make it again. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
It's my birthday tomorrow, so I made this for my cake. I halved the recipe and made two 4" cheesecakes. My husband and I split one tonight to "test" it. :) I love chocolate, but this was a little too much. I think this would be a wonderful turtle cheesecake. If I make this again, I would only turn 1/3 of the batter to be chocolate and swirl it with the regular batter. Then I would top it with some hot fudge and fresh whipped cream before serving. The crust and caramel were perfect, just a tad too chocolatly. Thanks for the recipe!

Seafood Salad III

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
Wow! This is wonderful. I did make a few changes per other reviews. First of all, I used 1 lb. of imitation crab meat. It was the perfect amount of dressing for that amount of meat. I wonder if it is a typo in the recipe? I also added about 1/8 tsp. of Old Bay, and added about 1/2 c. of finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, since our grocery store deli salad has cheese in it. Finally, since I wasn't going for healthy with this, I used regular mayo and whole milk. :) Way better than our grocery store's deli salad!
