Baked Aloha Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
I too was surprised at how bland this turned out! I made it w/ listed the listed ingredients w/ exception of added sriracha hot sauce and brown sugar, omitting the oil all together (which was a good thing -- it wasn't needed). I then marinated it instead of baking right away. I only had a few hours, but it would be good to marinate overnight. I baked everything together in a covered deep dish baker for 1 hour... big chicken pieces. The sauce was very watery and the chicken sadly ugly and pale. I left in the oven uncovered for 15 more minutes to try to get some color... again, not long enough as I was afraid to dry out the meat. After letting it rest a few minutes, I peeled the skin off and cut the meat off the bone for my kids. Again, per someone else's review, I put the sauce in a pan and reduced it down... surprisingly still needed to add a pinch of salt. I added some leftover pineapple chunks which gave it back a bit of tanginess. Then I remembered I had some cilantro in the fridge and added it last to the sauce and pineapple. I added the sauce to the bite-sized meat and it salvaged an otherwise bland baked chicken recipe. Next time I think I'll try the marinade again for a longer period and then bake or grill w/o the pineapple marinade. I'll too it with a pineapple salsa with cilantro, fresh ginger and a little red onion.

Magic Cookie Bars I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
Can you say YUMMY! These were fantastic! As some reviewers mentioned, I also skipped the nuts. No problem. I also didn't have a full cup of chocolate, so I substituted a handful of butterscotch chips instead (and, while I was at it, threw in some toffee bits). I'm telling you....these were good warm right out of the oven, and the next day for a little indulgence with my morning coffee. The longer they set, the firmer they got and they indead were magical! They almost tasted like a candy bar. I will have to most definately make these around the holidays for our friends and neighbors. Thanks for the recipe!

Asian Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
My family and I all loved these burgers! I did have fresh ginger on hand so I used that instead of the ground. I also added very small diced red bell pepper and red onion to the mixture (about 1/4 cup each). I grilled them on the BBQ and they turned out great. I did read somewhere that when grilling turkey burgers, you have to let them sit a while longer than beef, otherwise they tend to fall apart. Thanks to that tip, mine didn't! My 5 year old son even ate the leftovers reheated the next day! Thanks for the's going into our regulars!
