Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
I would give this 5 stars because it is so easy, but I think it needs a little more flavor than just the BBQ sauce. My fiance and I each made a rack (we had a rib cookoff) and baked them according to the instructions on this recipe. His turned out with a way better flavor because in addition to the BBQ sauce he did a dry rub. That is the way I will make them in the future, but the oven method is perfect for getting the ribs moist. Just do a flash grill on the sides for a glaze and chow down!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
This was the first blueberry pie I've ever made. I made it for my fiance's grandfather as it is his favorite. I personally did not get to try it because it was all gone before I could get to it. Grandpa was mad because he only got one piece! I'll take that as a good sign. :-)

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
This is a GREAT base for spanish rice. I love the idea of cooking it in chicken broth! However I do make a few changes. I use enchilada sauce instead of salsa-just about 1/2 of a small can. ( I usually make this with my enchiladas so I have it on hand) I also add cumin which is ESSENTIAL and green chiles. I also add a little cayenne, but that is just my preference!

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I had high hopes for this recipe, judging by the reviews, but it fell a little short in my book. Eventhough I marinated it for an hour or so, it did not seem to have alot of flavor.

Garlicky Appetizer Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
All I can say is YUM. I am only giving it 4 stars because somehow the shrimp or perhaps the oil made our grill flare up almost catching our patio on fire. That would have hindered our Valentines Day.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I really love this recipe. It has become a soup staple at my house. I do substitue one can of chicken broth w/cream of chicken as others have suggested. I also cut up carrots and celery, add a dash of cumin, garlic, and chili powder. Gives it a little kick. Also, it is true that it doesn't make a lot of liquid, however by day 2 or 3, i scoop it out and place it on tortilla chips for a taco salad. YUMMY!!!

Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I have made this recipe multiple times and EVERYONE loves it. In fact, my fiance has twin sisters and for their birthday "cake" they requested I make this trifle. I do add 1 cup of fat free milk, I use the sugar free vanilla jello, omit the liquor altogether, use fat free condensed milk, angel food cake, and fat free cool whip. I swear you can't taste a difference with this lower fat version. This is one of my most favorite recipes!
