It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Chili is a hard thing to rate/make/read suggestions and comments about. Its just one of those things that can be made SOOO different and be SOO good many different ways!! I thought this chili was good, and especially good for a base chili and then you modify to make it suit your tastes. I followed others suggestions and cut out the tomato juice all together and used 2 cans tomato sauce and 2 cans of diced tomatoes. Next time I will only use 1 can tomato sauce. It seemed too thick but once it started heating up it was a little more liquidy than I liked. It was good though. My boyfriend rated it a 3.5. Me a 4 and our friend who was over a 5! So... anyways all in all I thought this was good especially for a beginner Chili Maker! Oh, I also forgot to mention I browned my meat beforehand w/garlic cloves and onion and then put everything in the crock pot!

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
We (my boyfriend and I) really enjoyed this sauce. I followed others suggestions and added a little bit of sugar. I also added some basil, onion powder, some pepper flakes and some more italian seasoning. It was really good! This was my first time making my own pizza sauce. Only have had it from the pizza places. I think I will continue to use this sauce!

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
These were really good. Instead of oil, we soaked our asparagus in italian dressing for a little while then topped and baked. Also, didnt use balsalmic vinegar.

Vanilla Wafer Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
These were SO yummy. Not as hard as the kind you would get in the box at the stores, so that was a little different. But, you can always cook a little longer to make a little harder. I used these for the Banana Pudding IV on this site and cooked them a little longer so they'd be crispier for the topping. Will make again. Thanks! :)

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I have to say these were VERY good! I dont know what people are talking about when they said they were lacking flavor!? I followed others suggestions and cooked the sauce on the stovetop and then when serving poured the sauce over! This kept the outside of the chops crunchier. It was delicious. The pork chops were tender and so yummy. Me and my boyfriend rated this 5 stars, the only thing is we wish we would have made more sauce! Oh, we also used Cream Of Chkn since we dont care for mushrooms. Didnt taste a chickeny taste. Also I rubbed chops w/garlic powder and lawrys seas salt, and added ital seasonin, garlic powder, onion powder to the sauce and only baked chops for 35 mins! Definitely a keeper!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Very easy to make, and tasted great! We're not even huge mushroom fans. Definitely think this would be a nice meal to make for company because it tastes like you spent awhile cooking it!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
The taste was amazing!!! I had a hard time w/this cake though, most likely because I'm still a beginner and learning but I didnt like the outside of the cake, it was too runny for me! Also I used coffee granules but they stayed whole granules. I will DEFINITELY make this again, but follow others suggestions and try something different.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
These were really good!!! Good by themselves, however, I felt like I needed some sort of sauce. I think these would be really good for a chicken parmesan, or maybe w/a cream sauce. I will definitley make these again but try them along w/something else!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
This was very good!! I think I will stick to my old recipe though. I didnt think it was as sweet as the recipe I am used to, but the recipe I usually uses, uses white sugar not brown? Maybe thats why?

French Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
This was good!!! I followed someones suggestion and used the yolk of the egg and some milk to brush on...this made the outside really hard. I will make this again, but I will try something else, as I like crispier outside but not hard. I like it like the store bakeries make them. I didnt think this tasted like that.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This was REALLY good!!! I did make some changes, only to suit our preferred tastes. I cut the chili powder in half because I dont like too much heat, and then only used 1/4 cumin because I've never had it before so wasnt sure if I'd like it. I also just gave a dash of salt (we're not huge salt fans!) I used this with the burrito pie recipe and it was really good! A little heat but not overpowering!
