Baked Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
Super! I had made other "oven-fried" recipes before and they turned out good, but soggy so I baked this one on a rack. The bottom was still a bit soggy, but they were super delicious anyway. Leftovers a couple of days later still tasted great in a "fried-chicken" salad. I used more lemon juice, and didn't pour the extra liquid over the top at the end. For the first time I used store bought bread crumbs instead of making my own, and I think they made it a lot better - crispier and stayed on the chicken better. I'll make this again!

A to Z Everything-but-the-Kitchen-Sink Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
Tasted good, but spread out so much that they were ugly. Be sure to up the flour and maybe decrease the baking soda a bit.

Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
Fabulous! I don't even usually like meat, but I was fantasizing about the leftovers all the next day only to come home to find my brother eating the last piece! Great spice and delicious crust. The advice about baking in a rack is completely vital to preventing a soggy crust.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ricotta Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
This is a fabulous recipe! The ginger gives it a very special flavor. I have to admit that I love the marshmallow sweet potato recipes, but those have their own time and place. This was much better for a weeknight dinner. I didn't have sage so I used basil, and that tasted great, but I will definitely try again with sage.

Doughnut Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
I wasn't going to review this recipe because I didn't follow it as the author intended, but it turned out so well I wanted to give it a 5 star review. I was searching for something I could do with a whole batch of cookies that turned out too cake like and were just sitting in a Tupperware. I found this recipe, and replaced the doughnuts with my cookies and it turned out great! It tastes just like "Budin" which is a dessert made in Peru. So try this recipe with old cake, cookies, muffins... I'm sure it will work!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
The baking time was way off for a 9 x 13 pan. My bread only took about 30 minutes. I thought the taste was good, but not great.

Superb Cranberry Sauce with Apples and Pears

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Fabulous! I didn't have whole spices, so I used ground. I only had time to chill it for a couple of hours, but it still tasted great!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I dug some frozen bagels out of the back of the freezer and used those for the bread. I made this as a side dish to go with chicken breasts (not inside a turkey) so I doubled the amount of broth, and baked it in a greased dish covered with tinfoil. I took it out and stirred it after 30 minutes, added some more broth, and recovered it to bake for 15 more minutes. Then I lowered the temp to 315, took off the foil and let it cook for 15 minutes more. Perfect!

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
This was delicious! I didn't bread the fish, I just pan-fried it, diced it, and then poured the marinade over it. In my opinion, the marinade is a little too sweet, but it is a PERFECT counterbalance to the spicy coleslaw. Yum! Everyone wants me to make it again!

Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
This was pretty good. I made it without the coco powder because I had a brownie crust and I didn't want it to be too chocolaty. I made 2/3 of the recipes and used 4 tablespoons of baileys in it. I thought it had plenty of baileys flavor, and I am glad I didn't add any more. It didn't crack at all, but I did put a pan of boiling water in the oven as well.

Warm Mushroom Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
This is an amazing recipe. I was worried about a "warm" salad, but it cooled down to room temperature quickly, and was delicious. I added goat cheese and pine nuts which made it much less healthy, but it's hard to resist throwing cheese into things.

Healthier Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
Turned out great with a pumpkin pie. For me, nothing beats the real full fut pastry crust, but I don't know how to make that kind anyway. This was a great alternative.

Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I thought it was ok, but not great. I think this could be because my apple-butter was a no sugar added kind, but the pie was tart and not very sweet. Anyway, it wasn't a favorite in my family.

Mushroom Stuffing Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I am giving these 4 stars even though I didn't like them because everyone else in my family did, A LOT. I think the main thing that upset me was that after I baked them a huge puddle of melted butter was covering the cookie sheet. I poured that off (so maybe they were actually healthier minus the butter?), but it kind of grossed me out. They looked a lot better when stuffed into tomatoes. Anyway, as I said, my family liked them, so I'll probably make them again, and I am sure if I hadn't seen the puddle of butter I would have enjoyed them more too. :)

Pumpkin Date Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Really good. I love that it uses apples, pumpkin, dates, and nuts. It makes it somewhat nutritious, right??? As another reviewers stated, it turned out better for me in muffin form than in a larger pan. I wonder if it would be good with wheat flour instead?

Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I only made the frosting (based on the numerous five star reviews) so that is all I can comment on. I made it to go on cupcakes, but I didn't have time to frost them right then, so I made the frosting and thought I could let it sit until I got back from my run. When I returned home the frosting was as hard as caramel candy! Luckily, it turned out fine when I heated it up over the stove, and then creamed it with my beaters again. It stayed soft long enough to frost everything. I didn't have maple flavoring so I used almost extract - still turned out fine. In conclusion: this frosting is AMAZING, but be careful. We were all eating the tops right off of the cupcakes!

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
This was delicious. I used sesame oil instead of olive oil, because I wanted more of an Asian-food taste. Very quick and easy to do, and the whole family liked it (even my little brother said I should make it again!).

Date Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Ok, I made quite a few adjustments (sorry!!!), but it was a delicious cake, and I am sure it would be amazing as written as well. I used 2 cups chopped dates and a half cup raisins. I boiled the fruit in 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup orange juice with some cinnamon. When I added the baking soda it had a mini lava effect like a science fair project (I didn't think about the acid from the orange juice and baking soda, oops), but not enough to be a mess, and it didn't ruin the flavor. I used almond extract instead of vanilla, and I also added nuts to the cake. I messed up the topping the first time I made it (adding the cream to the hot butter wasn't pretty) so I just did a topping of butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Anyway, my whole family loved this recipe. They said they would buy it in a coffee shop. I didn't think it was that pretty, so if I made it for company I would increase the recipe and make it in a bundt pan, or slice it like a loaf cake and serve with sauce and whipped cream.

Chocolate Cherry Drops

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I thought that these tasted great and were really easy to make, but the dough was soooo sticky. I don't know if it would ruin the taste to add more flour, but they were almost impossible to drop. I would try chilling them first to see if that helps. They took 12 minutes to bake in my oven, but maybe that was because I made them too large? I did not get 48 cookies out of the recipe.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I thought that these were really cute, but didn't taste like anything special. I made them for a temple pot-luck, so I was happy that they resulted in attractive cookies, but if I was picking a cookie for flavor alone, I would pick something else. Footnote: The leftover chocolate sauce tastes amazing on vanilla ice cream!
