Banana-Nut Chip Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
i really enjoyed this banana bread, though for my sweet-tooth, it could be a little sweeter. it's very moist and it baked to perfection following the directions. the only changes that i made were: pecans instead of walnuts, mini-chocolate chips, and no oats. i think next time i'll try it with the oats, too. i've never made it with chocolate chips before, so i keep 'tasting' it to get used to the new flavor combination! it was good warm (about a 1/2 hour out of the oven), but i think it tastes better cold the next day (with a tall glass of milk).

Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
these were very good. i've never prepared scallops before, so i was very pleased with how these turned out. i also added some crushed garlic cloves to the dish before broiling. this is a recipe that i would make again.

Marinated Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
these were great! i'm not a fan of mushrooms on their own - i always have to pair them with something. so, i used this recipe to marinate about a pound of white mushrooms, let them rest in fridge for a day, and then cooked them on kabobs with chicken and veggies - it was so good! i will definitely make these again!

Chicken Pot Pie VI

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This was delicious! I substituted cream of broccoli soup for the cream of mushroom and added one can of potatoes (that I diced). I also chopped about a 1/2 c. of celery and boiled it with the chicken and onion. Since I included the potatoes, I decided to add an extra can of cream of broccoli. Mine was slightly on the dry side, but I think thats because of the potatoes, so next time I will add a little milk to the chicken and vegetable mixture. I even made an extra batch (in a 9x13) to bring to work for a pot luck tomorrow!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This pie is wonderful! It was my first ever attempt at baking a homemade apple pie, and my boyfriend & I are very pleased! I did choose to leave out the raisins and nuts, though. I know I'll be making this pie again and again!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was wonderful! I used 6 large sweet potatoes and then followed the recipe exactly as stated - oh, but i did add a few large marshmallows in the middle layer which added a little extra sweetness. I didn't find this to be too sweet at all, but maybe that was because of the size of the potatoes I used... Anyway, I made this for Thanksgiving with my family and everyone really loved it. I will definitely make this again - it's delicious!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
This turned out really well. I had to halve the recipe since I was making this for just two people. I decided to follow the advice of other reviewers and increased the amount of peanut butter, used a little less cool whip, and used an Oreo crust. I used nearly 1c. of PB in my half-recipe, but i think it actually still could have had more (I think this is due more to personal preference, though). I also crushed some Oreos over the top of the pie before freezing; this was a nice touch, but I think it will taste even better if I stir them into the PB mixture next time. As I come from a household of PB lovers - I will make this again! Thanks!

Vinegar and Egg Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
this was my first time making homemade pie crust, so my 5 star rating is based solely on the taste - it was delicious. however, it didn't hold together at all when we sliced the apple pie. it was like having apple crumble! but i'm blaming that on operator error - like i said, this was my first time ever making pie crust so i think i rolled it too thin. it wasn't too sticky and it wasn't overly difficult to work with (and trust me, as a 1st timer, i was nervous!) but, the taste was excellent and i will give this another shot!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I'd say this recipe is just ok; although my bf really enjoyed it. While I had had enough before finishing the 1st helping, he had 2 helpings. The chicken was very moist and flavorful (it was good, definitely not disgusting), it just wasn't a flavor that I wanted too much of. The only changes that I made were: cutting the paprika in half and using only 1/3c. of Dijon mustard. I agree with other reviewers that the basil and parsley were too much. I may try this one again as a base with some tweaking, but in the meantime, I think I will continue to look for another recipe.

Southern Style Banana Split Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This is delicious! I've made it twice now (4 pies) and it has disappeared every time. The changes I made were pretty minor: I used 2 store bought graham cracker pie crusts in place of making the crust and pressing it into a 9x13, sprinkled walnuts on top, and then drizzled chocolate (the kind that hardens) over the nuts and cherries. To get the chocolate to set, I just put the pies in the freezer for a few minutes and then transferred them to the fridge. This is a keeper - especially for parties and family gatherings.

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
These are awesome! I changed the recipe only slightly - I used a tad less confectioners sugar and added a 1/2 c. of graham cracker crumbs (from the Buckeyes II recipe - another great one). My b.f. and brother love the texture that the graham cracker crumbs add (almost like Reese's). These are delish!!

Simply Marinated Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
these were ok. there was too much parsley for my taste - it totally filled the inside of each mushroom where the stems had been removed. i tried one after they had marinated for 24 hrs in the mixture and wasn't really impressed, so the next day i cooked them in a frying pan with some sliced onions and ate them over steak for dinner - they were better this way. the rest of the marinade was awesome as a dipping sauce though. i'll probably try this again with less parsley, but for the time being i'm going to stick to the marinated mushrooms II recipe.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This is a great meal - I will use this recipe again and again. I followed other suggestions and baked the pork chops and apples instead of pan frying and they turned out very moist, juicy, and flavorful.

Marinated Scallops Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Wonderful! I followed the directions exactly (except I didn't cut the scallops in half and I only made 6 for 2 people) and they were absolutely delicious. This is my 'go to' scallops recipe from now on!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Wow! Soooooo good. I think I will be making a lot of guacamole from now on! I followed the recipe almost exactly - one of my avocados was bad :( so I only used 2, and my lime was a little hard so I probably only got about half the juice of a regular lime; but I thought it was just about perfect - from now on I will use 3 avocados and the juice of half a lime. Thanks so much!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Made this tonight to go with some fried chicken strips and it is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written. It's definitely (homemade) restaurant quality. From now on, I will use this as my standard HM recipe. It's great! Thanks!
