Chicken Cordon Bleu Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Quick, easy & good. We vut back on the amount of sauce made, but it was still alot. I think it could be cut in half. We also used Dijon mustard because we like a the kick.

Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I've had this recipe in my folder since June 2008, but never got around to making it. A diffinite keeper & I wish I'd made these before. They are very filling. The first time I made this, I didn't have chipotle chile in adobo sauce, so just used chipotle pepper that was crushed. It was good that way, but using the chipotle chili in adobo sauce makes it more flavorful. We do use a lot of cilantro by choice.

Chinky's Mango Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
This was so moist & easy to make (hubby prepped the mango). Only problem was adjusted to make only one loaf of bread & it didn't last more than a couple of hours. I have another mango so will make again. I did use cranraisins & will put alot more in next time. The sugar I reduced also per suggestions. It was sweet enough without all of it.

Amazing Corn Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Sorry, but this isn't worth doing. I had high hopes, but thought it was bland. My husband thought it was ok, until he got indigestion from it. He said to forget doing this again.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Easy & very flavorful. I did take others suggestion & reduce the chipotle chile powder. For a 1 1/2lb tenerloin I used 1 T chipotle powder. We cooked on an electric grill in the garage (lots of snow here) & it took longer than usual because of how cold it is now. Next time I'll compensate (if during the cold season), or just bake. Can't wait to make again. The garage smelled great even this morning from the cooked tenderloin.

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
We've made several times & it is tasty. You can add more pumpkin if desired. A keeper.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Took others advice & used orange extract instead of the almond, but next time I'll use the almond. We didn't like them at first, but after sitting over night they were better. Do double the cranberries. Will make this again & then decide if we're keeping.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Good, but nothing better than what we already make so won't be doing these again. For those who don't have a roll recipe you might want this. We didn't like the way the recipe called for the yeast mix in with the other dry ingredients. Yeast does better with warm water & in some recipes the sugar. Then, let it work into a foam better adding dry ingredients.

Traditional Cranberry Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Won't be making this again, so glad I only made half a recipe. Made like recipe said, but did use more cinnamon as others suggested. I have better cranberry crisp recipe, but thought since this had apple it would be a nice change. WRONG. If we'd liked the filling better I would've made my usual topping because this didn't have any flavor & seemed very buttery. I like the ones with flour in with the oatmeal & butter because it gets crispier. Sorry, but not worth keeping for us.

Mom's Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
Easy to make, but just a starting point for us. I did use less margarine & used 2 cloves garlic as others suggested. Next time I'll try adding some hot or smoked sausage. I've used both crescent rolls & a pie crust & don't feel it makes a difference, so use whatever you have on hand. I do like it that there is no evaporated or regular milk used because it sets up nicely. Using a cheddar jack cheese adds more flavor than mozzarella.

Quinoa with Asian Flavors

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
Good side dish. We did use 2 cloves of garlic & could hardly taste it. Could use alittle more ginger root, but that is a personal preference.

Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Just ok. The pork loin was moist, but this just didn't do anything for me. I'll make a cranberry chutney recipe I like, and serve over sliced pork loin next time. Won't make this again.

Taiwanese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Great flavor. We doubled the marinate completely, except we used 2 tsp of Chinese five spice powder. It is the five spice powder that really makes this. I'm not big on frying pork, but will sacrifice for this.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Easy enough to make, good warm or cold. I did add the 1/2 tsp cinnamon others suggested & diffinitely think it was needed, possibly a tsp. Will make again.

Apple Bavarian Torte

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Very disappointed. I shoul've known when I opened the oven door to add the almonds this wasn't going well. Juice leaked from the springform pan & burnt. Then when I tried to remove from pan, after it cooled, the crust stuck to the bottom, & things fell apart when transferring to a plate. The crust is good & I could use that in other desserts. The filling leaves a bad taste in your mouth. It gave me a "flashback" to cheesecake, which I don't like. (very overpowering taste) The apples were hard & I did nuke in microwave, as suggested & even in small quantities.

Honey Ginger Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Since we don't like lemon juice to overpower things I reduced the amount of lemon juice & we'd still give this a 3 as is. I will make again because hubby likes the sweetness of the honey with the carrots. Next time I will try 1/4 tsp ginger because I couldn't taste it before & try only 1/2 tsp lemon juice.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Took others suggestion & used 2/3c applesauce instead of oil, put 2 tsp cinnamon & 1/2 tsp vanilla into the batter. Was easy to make, but I think I'll try 1 tsp vanilla next time. You need the extra cinnamon to even taste it. My mistake was getting to much batter in b/4 adding the cinnamon/sugar mixture. I thought I'd gotten half batter in pan, but will use less so when swirling it mixes better.
