Arabian Rose Water Pudding (Muhalbiyah)

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
easy recipe, but however, I couldn't get past the smell of rose petals in my digestion. Something about eating what I normally smell on potpourri and perfumes, wasn't something I could handle after I made it. I really am trying to be subjective here. While I love the fragrance of roses...this totally took me to a new level when trying to down it in this recipe. Had I been accustom to eating this growing up, I would probably have enjoy it. But putting it in my mouth and swallowing it, was very off-putting when I did. I couldn't get past the one spoonful. But you don't know these things until you try them. And now I'm experienced to know, I won't be making again. My apologies. This recipe will probably suit others that are accustom to eating and drinking rose water, just won't be making it again in my household.

Maple Kale Crisps

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
oh man...didn't like it, couldn't eat it. Everyone in the house didn't care for it at all. 1st time I've ever made this preparation, so I can honestly say, won't again. Sorry to those that do like kale chips. It wasn't pleasing to anyone's taste buds. Sorry

Dr. D's Killer Salsa

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
While super easy to make, the down fall in this recipe is the acidic of too much lemon juice and slightly off-putting. It's the 1st thing you taste, above the other ingredients in the recipe. It did however have the back heat of the cayenne and the light lingering flavor of cilantro. I would recommend only using 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, not 2 tablespoons and add an additional avocado or add a diced roma tomato for extra color because the recipe color is rather muted from the canned tomato sauce.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
I honestly wasn't a fan, while my husband liked it, it was slightly to hot for my kids. And we like spicy but it was enough the kids, had the burns in their throats, they couldn't get past. For me, it had a weird after taste, that I just didn't care for. I think it was the allspice and the mix of tomato soup.

Cinnamon Yogurt Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
If you follow this recipe with the amount of cinnamon, you totally have added way to much, as I found out. There is soo much cinnamon in such a small batch of dip, that we found our selves saying the dip was drying our palates. I made it twice and the 2nd batch at half the required amount of cinnamon...way way much better. And enjoyable.

Creamy Banana Blast

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
While simple and easy...it wasn't our favorite, it was okay. Not sweet and not seasoned enough with nutmeg. My daughter and I added sugar and nutmeg until she was satisfied. But we both agreed, it still had the after taste of evaporated milk slightly above the banana taste.

Leftover Special Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2013
This recipe was just fine, nothing special. However it did make use of some leftover ham from the holidays. It probably could be tweaked a little more. But not bad.

Skillet Mac and Cheese & Kielbasa

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2013
The recipe was okay...However, man the sausage was great. My store only had the andouille sausage. SO that's what I had to use. As I followed as best to a T as possible, the bread crumb stage, needed a little bit of butter to make the bread crumbs golden, as my sausage slices didn't produce enough. The next steps were fine, but when I added my cheese at the very end...it was soo thick and stringy that I really really needed to have some butter or more liquids to thin it. However as it stands my family totally enjoyed it to death. Oh I could have easily used another package of sausage or taken the time to slice each slice in half, to have more meat through out. Other then that, I was asked to make it again.

Amber's Super Stuffing

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
I have to say, this was okay as a whole on the recipe side. The recipe is lacking baking directions. As most people will use common sense, there are beginning cooks to even expert cooks that can see the directions are lacking completely from start to finish. A beginner might pass the recipe up due to the fact of not knowing baking temp & time. I however cooked this recipe at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. The recipe should also state a rough amount of extra chicken broth if needed, which I needed around a cup and a half cup to add to the whole batch. I was afraid of over saturating the dish as well not getting it moist enough. I also bought the wrong wild rice mix, it just so happened to be a Brown Rice Melody mix from Trader's Joe, but used it as that's what I bought. But at the end of the recipe, my son really liked it despite it having mushrooms, while everyone else thought it was okay.

Green Pea Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I actually loved this combination. However, I will say, that I modified, only because of what I had. One, my Romas were rather large, so 3 equaled 6 easily. And when I thought I had sweet pickles on hand...I didn't and had no choice but to grab for the relish, I measured out 2 TBSPs of Sweet Pickle Relish to start with and added one more after tasting it. The lightness of this dish was really well balanced and wasn't at all heavy weighted with the cheese in the "normal" Pea Salads. I will totally make again because I was double and triple dipping my spoon in and munching while making Easter dinner. Thanks...I truely enjoyed this.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
This recipe, was mixed with likes and dislikes. While my husband and I thought it was really good with the flavor and texture was different, no one had ever eaten it in our house. Only one child liked it fine, while the other 3 children wouldn't touch it after one bite. I'd make it again because my husband really enjoyed it and he asked that I find away to use it like rice. ;-)

Honey Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Simple and easy to throw together. I thought it was fine, liked the curry aroma and taste. My family totally loved it. I only thought it was okay, but even a kid that stated the night with one of my children, said it rocked....hmm wow. Okay, I guess it was better the I thought. ;-) SO it will be on the menu again. TY

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Myself, my husband and 2 of our 3 daughters, liked this, one daughter and son, not so much. However, it was different, could use some tweaking, less garlic & a few herbs. I put cauliflower in a jelly roll pan to roast. I'd make again. TY

Johnsonville® Smoked Chicken Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rigatoni

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
This was a very easy and flavorful recipe. I made it as is, but will totally go for the fat free zesty the next time. My girls just loved this. And in looking, I left of the cheese by mistake...but it's all good.

Johnsonville® Three Cheese Italian Style Chicken Sausage Skillet Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
Easy peasy recipe. But my family didn't put the pizza on the top of the recipe. It was sort of a Sausage mix with pizza on the side. I topped my pizza with a little bit of italian seasoning as well as the last reviewer, just because it looked plain. I think next time I'm going to do chunk pepperoni and dice up with the sausage. Overall...it was decent.

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Rigatoni

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
The family liked this, was easy to do. My only draw-backs after seeing how the family was plating their bowls....was they were grabbing more of the meat and equal parts of the noodles and could have used a bit more sauce. Having said that....16 ounces of noodles is too much, that leaves little room for enough pasta sauce to go around and doesn't stay moist. Ending up in adding more sauce to accomendate the leftovers. I'd make this again, in a heartbeat, but would curve my pasta to about 10-12 ounces only.

Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
Absolutely AWESOME mushroom recipe! I had purchased a .40 ounce package of Buttermilk ranch(it's all the store had) and it was fanstatic. I can't thank Perri enough because the results from my hubby, telling me I way out did myself with serving this over a couple grilled seasoned pork loin steaks...honestly, I barely out did myself at all...so let's just let him think I did ;-) Will totally be on my menu a lot with steaks. Ty you girlie!

Irish Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
While this was easy to do with leftovers from St. Patrick's Day meal...it lacked that humph of savory flavors. Having said that, my meal from the night before was down right delish and barely had leftovers to make this recipe. However, hubby and I didn't cared for the potatoes in the eggrolls, it just didn't flow with the rest of the ingredients. We both felt it was the culprit, that made it bland. Totally need some sort of seasonings to the mix of ingredients before spooning on to the wrappers. The recipe was okay and has a huge margin of tweaking to make it excellent.

Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
Very delish recipe. I've never made a corned beef with this technique before. And it turned out soo well. I followed threw with braising and then utlizing my crockpot to bake in, only for the simple fact, I needed to bake other things at a higher temp then this recipe in my oven and didn't want to complicate matters. The crockpot worked out very well. The only thing I did slightly different and it wasn't really much. After braising the meat in the pan on the cooktop, I took the water and deglazed the pan and then added that deglazed mixture to the crock pot over the corned beef and followed threw with the rest of the directions. Added a head of cabbage during the last hour and a half, it was very flavorful. My beef was extra tender and was falling apart ;-) Will make again.
