Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I made it exactly as written...it was ok, not something I will "put into the rotation" as my husband likes to say, but it wasn't bad either.

Turtle Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
This dough was so easy to work with! I substituted 1 c. of the flour with whole wheat, used 2 TBSP. of sugar, 2 TBSP. of butter, and added about 1 TBSP. of honey to the milk/butter mixture before adding it in to the yeast mixture. I didn't have the instant yeast so I let it rise about 1 hour, shaped it, and then let it rise another 30 minutes. Brush with egg wash and again with butter right before it comes out

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Delish! The only word of advice I would offer is that if you put peppermint pieces in between the layers, don't put many. I put a good amount in between the layers and when I went to break up the pieces the white chocolate layer came off from the semisweet layer. They still taste fabulous, but aren't all together liked planned. I can't wait to try it with milk chocolate as well!

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Even after adding more flour and a pinch of baking powder along with the other dry ingredients, these cookies still fell flat. They sure are yummy, but you'll have to scrape them off the plate to eat them because of their flatness.

Okra, Corn and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I think fresh corn and tomatoes would have made this dish better--why use canned/frozen when you can have fresh?

Pecan Breaded Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Browned on the stove 3-4 mintues then finished in the oven 15 minutes on 350. Just not out taste--not enough sweet to give it that nice salty/sweet combo.

Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

Grilled Zucchini II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Super easy and tastey! I soaked mine in a balsamic vinegar because that's all I had--a little too sweet, but that was my wrongdoing, not the recipes. I used my grill pan on the oven over med-high heat for around 3 minutes on each side, salt and pepper hot off the grill--perfection! It's so hard to cook squash correctly without it becoming mushy, and this does it wonderfully.

London Broil II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Great concept on keeping the marinade in aluminum foil vs. ziploc bag. Next time I will add 2 tsp. brown sugar, 1tsp. worcestershire sauce, use olive oil vs. vegetable oil and add 3Tbsp. of lemon juice as the steak was a little tough and maybe the acidity will help break it down a tad next time. I will also cook mine less--that was my wrongdoing. 5 minutes on both sides seems right. You can also broil ~8 min. on each side in the oven.

Picante Chicken Rice Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I wanted to like these so much! They were just super heavy and tasted much like the spanish rice from a box with chicken thrown in. They weren't bad, I would make them again if the husband liked them, but even he thought they were a little too heavy.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Couldn't believe I got my husband to eat a meal not including meat, but he survived! Used less brown sugar ~2tsp. and added 1/2tsp. cumin for a nice taste. I folded the tortillas over for easier flipping. You can also bake at 350 for 10 minutes, broiling for a minute to brown the tops at the end--especially useful if you need to feed a bunch of people at one time.

Fresh Herbed Halibut

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Followed as directed except for I used fresh garlic vs. garlic powder. Fish should be 4" away from broiler. I cooked mine 375 for 18 minutes and broiled for a minute or so near the end. I think fresh dill would be better.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
It's kind of hard to mess up such a yummy fish as salmon! Used 1/3c lemon juice and 1/4tsp pepper since I had no lemon pepper, 1/4c soy, and 2Tbsp. olive oil vs. vegetable oil. Had trouble with the fish on the grill, maybe next time we will put them in foil packets, leaving space for air to escape, either on the grill or in the oven at 425 for 15 min.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Not sure what I did but the meringue never set up completely and I whipped it for 14 minutes! Since I didn't have enough meringue to seal the edges of the crust (SO important) it "de-flated" into the pie resulting in a gooey mess. I did use 1 1/4 c. white sugar, 3 1/2 TBSP. cornstarch, 1.5c milk vs. water, 1/2c. lemon juice and 1 TBSP. lemon zest, and added 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Let mixture boil ~1min, then stir in everything else and stir until thick ~1 min. For the meringue I whipped egg whites on high ~2min, added 1/2tsp. cream of tartar and 1/2tsp. vanilla, then sugar and whipped another 14 minutes. Let cool on counter ~1hr, then in fridge 3-6hrs uncovered, then cover.

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
4 stars for the recipe as written. It is much better if you toast the pecans and flaked coconut in the oven at 350 for around 5-8 minutes, making sure to stir the coconut often. Also, I used 1/2c. white sugar and 1/2c. brown sugar. Added 1-1.5Tbsp. cornstarch with the evaporated milk. It took around 20-30 minutes for it to set up. I then refrigerated it around an hour before frosting my "too much chocolate cake" with it. Way more time friendly to use this wonderful frosting to get a german chocolate taste than doing an entire german choc. cake from scratch.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Delightfull fluffy cookies. My only complaint would be that the glaze that goes on top is a little sticky and causes the tops of the cookies to become slightly mushy. I made 36 cookies and still had to bake them more around 12 minutes to get that nice golden crust on the bottom.
