Herb Spread for French Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This was really tasty, even tho I had to use dried herbs, as that's what I had. I use unsalted butter, so this needed a touch of salt for me to bring out all the flavors. Very good tho. Used "Italian bread using a bread machine" recipe off this site, and highly recommend it. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
These were super tasty! Had them for dinner a couple nights ago. Used extra thick boneless loin chops and subbed canned beef broth for the water. After cooking, removed the chops and onions, drained off most of the liquid, then whisked in some flour to make a roux, added the reserved liquid and the rest of the can of broth and made a gravy to go over the chops. I only made 2 chops and there were plenty of onions, but I'd at least double the onion for more servings. Served this with garlic parmesan mashed potatoes. Will definitely make again.

.... and where's that Ole Janx Spirit?... Sorry... having a Doug A moment. Too fun and reminds me of a college roommate who had the Klingon bartending guide. Thanks for making me smile.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
You are my hero! The first onion rings ever to keep the batter on while frying. Used sweet onions from Trader Joe's and these were to die for. Used Italian bread crumbs cause that's what I had and added no other seasoning. Will try Panko next time. Also used the same flour/batter method for some crimini mushrooms and that was equally fantastic! Thank you for sharing this recipe! UPDATE: Made these tonight and breaded some frozen green beans, slightly thawed, with the same method, and they are great!

Outrageous Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I don't like giving bad reviews, but this is terrible... Made it last night and we choked it down, but it's bitter and salty. Gonna try to fix what's left, because I love anchovies, but I will probably end up throwing it out. Yes, I followed the recipe, and yes, I have had Caesar salad in some really great restaurants.

Spiced Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
The flavor of this is really great, with the perfect balance of spices, but it turned out a bit dry for our taste. Followed the recipe exactly, and next time I will add a touch of milk, sour cream, or buttermilk to moisten up the cake batter. Be warned that when it says "spread" into the pan, it means it. This is a really dense cake batter. Will make again with minor changes.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
Oh, man, is this good.... Just finished having it for a late lunch. Would be 5 stars, but a half a cup of mayo for one can of tuna would have made this really soupy... at least to me. I added a boiled egg cause I love them with tuna. Other changes were based on what I had. No relish, so cut up some fire and ice pickles. No dill, but didn't miss it. After tasting, added a touch of celery seed and a little black pepper. This would be wonderful in a pita bread with lettuce and tomato, but as I can attest, is equally great with a few crackers and a spoon!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This was pretty good.... good enough my picky husband had seconds. I used the "refried beans without the refry" recipe off this site and spread those on the tortillas (thanks to whoever first gave that advice). I changed some things in the meat, mostly because I only had a pound, so cut some things back and added some taco seasoning to get more flavor with less meat. Garnished with sour cream and avocado pieces.

Green Grape Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I have made this several times... but I never really follow all the steps... I mix the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar (Splenda), and vanilla together and just use this as a dip for any fruit I have. This makes the best tasting fruit dip ever, and since I don't stir in the fruit, it looks a little prettier having the dip in a bowl and fresh fruit all around. Can top the dip with the brown sugar and chopped pecans or leave it off. Either way, it tastes great.

Carrot Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
Really good! Cut the oil back to 1 cup, but otherwise left the recipe alone. My glaze turned slightly beige because I used too much vanilla, but didn't affect the taste at all. Husband liked this as well... so it's a keeper. Will make again.

Pumpkin Cookie Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I have made this for a while now and forgot to rate it. Husband requested this for a SuperBowl snack so I am back again... I think this is very good. The cream cheese keeps it from being sickly sweet. We dunk graham sticks in this... really good with the cinnamon sugar topped graham sticks or the honey (plain) variety.

Navy Bean Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
Really good, considering how easy it is to make. Time consuming, as far as boiling, soaking, boiling, draining... but not a lot of work. Had no Italian seasoning, so subbed poultry seasoning and added other spices separately to compensate. Subbed great northern beans cause that's what I had. Ran the potato masher thru it to thicken it up before serving. The parents and I loved this with a touch of parmesan, but the husband did not like it at all. He's being outvoted because he doesn't like soups with sausage in them to begin with, and he still ate a bowl.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Made this tonight for dinner. Really good fresh tasting sauce. I found the olive oil to be a bit excessive. I cut back and still ended up taking a paper towel to the top of the sauce to soak up some excess oil. Like some others, I added some basil to taste. Also used chicken broth instead of wine.

Bean with Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Wanted something to fight off the chill, and this really hit the spot. This is a really good soup, and as written is a 4 star in my book. I had to cook this quite a bit longer to get the beans soft, and it tasted like it was missing some little something. I ran the immersion blender thru it to smooth it out and thicken it up, then added some granulated garlic, and then it was a 5 star recipe for us. Very good soup I will be making again.

Stuffed Pork Chops III

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Rating the method more than the recipe here. I made stuffed chops last night, but had never done it, so I used the method here of frying and then adding broth to finish. I used my own stuffing recipe, and added mushrooms to the broth. After chops were done, removed them from the broth and thickened it with a little corn starch for more gravy consistency. Very tasty, and thanks much for the inspiration. My first attempt at stuffed chops turned out very well!

Sage Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I liked these ok... but husband loved them, so they are getting a 4 star. I really liked the flavor, and the idea of roasting the potatoes for a different flavor mash. I did shred these into fry strips for faster cooking, but otherwise followed the recipe. They were a little pasty, but that just could have been how I mashed them. I will try this one again, slicing the potatoes and not mashing so much once they are done, because I think this one has some potential to be really good and flavorful.

Pecan Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
These are an evil goodness... ;-) Made them yesterday evening for my husband the pecan pie fiend. No mini muffin pan, but made 12 large muffins, baking at 325 for close to 30 minutes. No problems with sticking, as I greased and floured the pan. Will definitely make again, as they are very easy and taste divine... or evil, depending on your diet.

Brioche

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
Wonderful brioche! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I haven't tried to make this type of bread in years and this recipe turned out perfectly light and eggy. Very simple, even tho there are several steps. Just the right amount of sweetness. I thank you and my husband, who grabs one of these every time he goes into the kitchen, thanks you!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Very good! I scaled this back to 4 servings, and used a lavendar infused red wine vin from San Juan Island since that's what I had. Added a packet of Splenda since I like sweeter vinegar dressings, and this is very good. May try it with some white balsamic next time.

Korean Spicy Chicken and Potato (Tak Toritang)

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
WOW... My mouth is still tingling from this... but it's probably my fault since I had to sub chinese hot sauce for the hot chili paste. May have changed the flavor, but as this is my first experience with Korean recipes, I didn't miss anything. Also used boneless skinless chicken breasts because that's what I had. Very tasty, flavorful, and spicy. Husband said this is his favorite thing I have made off this site so far!
