General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
EXCELLENT! A few notes, don't use MSG and ginger, I marinade the chicken in "hot" soya sauce-then drained. In bag 1/2 c cornstarch and 1/2 c flour. Dip in egg/soy. I didn't use green onions or chile peppers. The sauce is awesome! Will make again!

Smoked Sausage Oktoberfest

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly but I put it in a greased dish and cooked for 1/2 h at 350 after I fried up sausage and onion and it didnt turn out that great- later I put some in a frying pan with scrambled eggs and added ketchup and it was really good.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Salty, salty, salty! Was way too salty! Did I mention it's salty? The meat was very moist but I tried to slow cook this on hight for 4-5 hrs and it only got to 135 so I had to stick it in the oven and cook for 1/2 hr 400 on speed bake. I did add some flour and a can of whole mushrooms drained and it did not look apealing- was clumpy and so I tried to add milk to soften it. Salty. Okay- I just had to say it one last time!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
EXCELLENT! But I did make a few changes because I don't like to use so much sugar and oil- so this is what I did. In a bowl- beat 2 eggs, 1/2 C sugar and 1/2 C brown sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 C miracle whip, 1/2 C oil and 2 cups grated zucchini. Then sift in the bowl 2-1/2 C flour, 3 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder. Mix together then I greased a round 10X3 wilton pan 350 for 30 min- PERFECT!

Sesame Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Really really excellent side dish- I used vegetable oil instead of olive oil, I didn't add cayenne (Kids) and I used a touch more oil- when I got it on the baking pan I sprayed some oil on it using the oil pump from pampered chef- can't stand PAM, sorry, but tastes like plastic. anyways this was very good and I will make this again!

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This is exactly what I thought it would taste! This was amazing! I had refridgerator biscuits and then I made the gravy- I only used 2 large casings of sausage since it was just me and the kids eating tonight- but next time I will add one more....then I did everything else according to directions- the only thing is next time I will NOT add salt because I find the sausage is salty enough.

Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Wow! awesome! These are the changes that I made, first I sautee the onion plus I added a clove of crushed garlic. then I mixed in a bowl the mushroom soup with the cheddar cheese and 2 TBSP of milk- NO sour cream- then I mixed in the hashbrowns ( I try no to get the tiny tiny ones but a more larger size hashbrowns) and then I just mixed this all together and put it in a greased dish. On top I sprinkled Italian seasoned breadcrumbs and this was amazing!! NO NEED FOR 1 CUP OF BUTTER!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
This was fantastic- I tasted it when I took it out of the oven and it was great- then I added the other ingredients and I have to admit that I prefered it without the balsamic vinegar and soya sauce. Next time I will just pour a bit of melted butter and thats it.

WHOA! Yes yes yes! A hit! A winner! This was amazing! the changes that I made: I only used 1/3 C sugar. BTW 14 oz. of coconut is translated to 1-3/4 and I used UNSWEETENED.

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I overcooked it- woa woa woa. serves me right trying to make this and mexican rice and best black beans all at the same time. other than that I made no changes and its a good thing that whenever I make a new chicken dish I like to make a seperate pan of shake n bake incase it didnt turn out- go figure they prefered the shake n bake instead. why do I even bother. sigh.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I've never had Black Beans before and the only mexician style food I've had is Taco Bell- Hey I'm Canadian there is NO authentic Mexican restaurants here peeps! But I found this really dry- I rinsed out the black beans out of the can and added the rest of the ingredients exactly as written, but I couldn't get my son to eat it- so word of warning- this is not children fare.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I've never had mexican rice before so I was not sure what I was expecting. My children didn't like it- and my husband didnt like it- and I know what it was, it was the CUMIN! they just dont like the taste of it- its ok becuase I did like it. This was pretty easy to make but I'm not sure if I'l make this again.

Oatmeal Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
You don't need to use so much sugar or oil. But I did make a few changes to make a healthy version of this bread. ok, here we go......Step 1: Mix 1 C miracle whip and 2 TBSP of sugar and 2 TBS brown sugar and one egg beaten. after mixing this together add cinnamon. then mix. add sliced strawberries ( I only had 8 on hand so then I also added 1 C strawberry jam.) add 1 TBSP of oil ( I only added this for good measure but next time I aint going to) Mix this altogether and now Step 2: add 1 C oats, mix. 2 C flour, 1-1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Pour into greased pan. I used a round Wilton pan size 10X3. This turned out to be very moist! I dont even think I'm going to use any sugar or brown sugar next time.

Panettone Bread Pudding with Spiced Orange Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I made this January 1 and it was sooooo good! Here are the changes that I made- 2 TBSP of sugar only- people- you dont need to use a ton of sugar! 2-1/4 cups 5% cream because I didnt have half and half, I used 1 TBSP orange extract because I didn't have Grand Marnier or other, ground cloves instead of nutmeg, no orange zest either, and no butter on top- but I did need to use and extra egg- cooked this at 350 for 1-1/2 hours without using the hot water bath method and it turned out fantastic!!!

Kolaches From the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I served this to some guests after dinner and they all seemed to like it- it turned out a little puffy but it did taste great! I had some freezer peach preserves in the freezer that I served with this and it went well together. Did not put powered sugar on it- I didnt think it needed it. Maybe next time though.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I did make a few minor changes after looking at a few chocolate frosting recipes. In a saucepan over low heat I used 2 TBSP margerine and 1 TBSP shortening- (this makes it shiny) and then I used 1/2 C evaporated milk ( this is leftover from the coconut chocolate cake that I made) and 2 TBSP cocoa and 1 cup of 50% cocoa dark chocolate chips to give it a dark rich taste- just a splash of vanilla extract- then I added the confectioners sugar about 2 cups- since I wanted to make it into a glaze I wanted it runny and I poured it over the Coconut Chocolate Cake 1. VERY YUMMY!!!

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I'm not sure how to rate this- I mean- I do enjoy sweet meat- like honey garlic or hoisin sauce- and I really really wanted to like this recipe after seeing so many great comments. I didnt have a bag but I did use a covered baking dish- and I didn't use "Sarah's Applesauce" either I just added some cinnamon sugar mix I had on hand, and the problem was not the applesauce- I had a fairly small roast so I thought it would only take an hour to make but in my convection oven it took 2 hours to reach the 160 degree reading. I did use a small amount of cornstarch to thicken the apple sauce after removing the meat and like I said, there was nothing wrong with it- I guess it just didnt tickle my fancy.

Chicken with Green Peppers in Black Bean Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I'm glad that I did not add any salt to this- this is very salty- in the black bean sauce there is a whopping 1120mg of sodium so you can skip the salt and the soya sauce in my opinion. If you don't like salty dishes you won't like this. Also I only used 3 TBSP of the Black Bean sauce and it was just fine- served on a bed of Basmati rice and I used 2 very big chicken breasts and it was good enough. From start to finish it took an hour- its the prep. that took most of the time. Also I only used 1 tbsp of corn starch mixed in with a 1/2 c of hot water- and it concistancy turned out perfect. I'm not sure if I'll make this again- I have alot of black bean sauce left that will most likely sit in the fridge for a long time. :-(

Pecan Turtle Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
After reading all the RAVE reviews, I decided to make these....well the bottom was so hard! the "carmel" center melded with the crust and it became one candy mass. After a bite I thought I'd have to see my dentist.....I followed the directions and made the changes that everyone suggested, and so I'm extremely dissapointed. Excuse me now, I must pick out the hard crust out of my teeth.
