The Real Deal Korean Beef Ribs

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
These were phenomenal! I had never made beef ribs before, so I was a little wary. I doubled the sauce but omitted the sugar. I added a bit more honey to make up for it. The sauce was super tasty! I kept sampling it prior to adding the ribs. I didn't have time to marinade well, so I put it all in my cast iron dutch oven and put it in the oven at 250 for about 2 hours. The meat was falling off the bone, super tender! I wish I had the grill ready, I bet it would have been even yummier to finish it off on a hot grill to carmelize it a bit and burn off a teensy bit of the oil. Definitely a keeper! I never knew I could make Korean ribs! I was sure I was going to regret opening the bottle of plum wine a friend gave me... but no regrets at all!

Chicken with Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
This was pretty good. Husband and I both agreed that it needed a lot more garlic. I was worried about the peas, but they fit the dish fine. I agree with PP who said that it's hard to crisp the bacon with chicken in pan. I served it over whole wheat couscous. I'll make it again, next time with more garlic and probably cream, then it will be able to hold its own enough to go over pasta.

Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
I added a bit more curry and mayo, also some garlic salt. I cooked the chicken with garlic salt and black pepper. This was very tasty all by itself. However, the flavor is rather delicate, and gets lost on whole wheat bread. I tried it with just lettuce wrapped around it, and it was still overpowered. This might work with pita bread, but I think that white bread (which we don't eat) is the only thing that would really work well with this. I'll make it again and just eat it as is.

Greek Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Meh. It's lacking something and I can't quite put my finger on what. I probably won't ever make it again, so good luck to whoever figures it out. :)

Cabbage and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I used 1.5 fresh medium tomatoes and diced one fresh jalepeno, and added salt to taste to make up for the salt that would have been in canned veggies. I also used brown rice, as I had some the right amount left over from a previous meal. It was quite tasty, in a simple sort of way, and the random jalepenos kind of made it fun. It wasn't too spicy, but just right for both the adults and the kids. I'll use this one again!

Schweinebraten Pork Roast

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
This was really tasty! I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the rub ingredients. I didn't have garlic powder, so I minced about a head of garlic and used it. (We're garlic lovers.) I used Woodchuck Cider as well... I figured that apples and pork always go well together. Made the pan drippings into gravy. My 5 pound roast finished in just under 2 hours.

Pumpkin Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
This was pretty good. I used to make something similar. This is probably the only sort of recipe that I'd prefer the pumpkin be from a can, as it tasted a bit squash-y. A whole banana was too much, I think I'll go with 3/4 next time. I added nutmeg because I can't do sweet pumpkin food without it, and a bit of vanilla.

Party Punch V

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
This was drinkable, but that's about it. I was disappointed and making excuses for it throughout the brunch I hosted. Thank goodness I'd bought a few bottles of wine. ;)

No Roll Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I used coconut oil and 1/2 whole wheat flour, and added an extra 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, since I was making a sweet pie. The crust is a bit dense, it would be perfect for something heavy like chicken pot pie, but it isn't really quite right for a sweet pie. The taste was good, but I think I was mainly enjoying the coconut flavor.

Syracuse Salt Potatoes

These are really tasty! I only used 1/2 the butter, and just drizzled it over the top.

Concord Grape Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
This pie was a decent amount of work, but not too much. Thanks to the person who explained how easy it is to "peel" the grapes! The problem is that it is a lot of work for a pie that pretty much just tastes like grape jam in a crust. I used three different crusts, and each time my favorite part was eating the crust. I cut the sugar to a cup, and still feel like it was too sweet, but my husband likes things really sweet, so he thought it was about right. He agreed that anymore sugar would have made the pie pretty much inedible. I really wanted to like this one, particularly since I have so many Concord grapes, but it just tasted too much like jam.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008

Russian Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
This was rather bland. I added salt and pepper, but it needed something else. I halved the sour cream and it still seemed too heavy for the dish. On the flip side, I liked eating a ton of veggies. It just took forever to slice them all paper thin for the pretty presentation. I probably won't make this again.

Beef Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
I made this for dinner tonight, and it's all gone. I put in mushrooms, carrots, celery, dandelion greens, asparagus, and double onions and garlic. Hopefully next time I'll have some potatoes on hand. I used beef round steak since I wasn't willing to go with anything more expensive for a potpie. I had to substitute burgundy as I was out of merlot. I also added salt and pepper to taste and approx 1 tsp basil and made my own crust. All in all, it was very tasty! The meat was cooked at such a low temp for so long that it was excellent- flavorful and tender. I did thicken the sauce with corn starch, I wish I hadn't as I didn't have much gravy inside the pie. Hubby said he'd rate it lower as written, but it's a perfect starting point.

Deep Dish Potato and Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
This was extremely tasty! I doubled the garlic, hubby said even more would have been better, and added a bit more salt and some diced chicken to make it an entree. I also cooked the veggies in butter to give them more flavor. I used the No Roll Pie Crust II from this site, made with whole wheat flour, super yummy combo!

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I made this today from a pie pumpkin I bought over the weekend. After cooking the pumpkin in the oven, I pureed the pulp in the blender, and decided to just add all the ingredients in there (liquids first, followed by spices, then sugar, then flour). The pie is incredibly smooth. The only change I made to the recipe was adding a 1/4 tsp nutmeg and a bit more vanilla. It's plenty sweet without any additional sugar. So far, I've only eaten it warm, but I have a feeling I'll like it even more once it's cooled all the way... if it makes it that long!

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This was really good. I couldn't stop eating it, the family agreed. I'm wondering if maybe the negative reviews are because of the recipe calling for pounds of squash instead of cups. I had a huge squash and used roughly half of it to fill a 9x13 pan and guesstimated it being about the right amount. From the taste of the final product, I hit the nail on the head! The only change I made was to use 2 tsp dried parsley as I didn't have fresh available.

Basil Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
This recipe is phenomenal! I dreamt about these pork chops the night I cooked them...they were so tasty! The only thing I did differently was that I used Rapadura instead of brown sugar. I let them carmelize in the pan because the ones I made that way were much tastier than the ones that weren't carmelized. Extremely simple and so quick, this recipe is being added to my "go-to" list.

This is phenomenal! I've made this at least a dozen times. DH and the kids all love it, as do the other people I make it for. I didn't change a thing!
