Roasted Parmesan Rosemary Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
Have made a couple of times & taken others suggestion of adding garlic or microwaving potatoes first. I didn't have fresh rosemary so took 1/2 tsp & ground it up in my grinder. You can bakes these or pan fry it is versatile.

Strawberry Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
We didn't refrigerate prior to serving & it was just fine so maybe had we let the flavors blend together it might've been even better. I didn't have any torn greens so used spinach otherwise everything was as called for. I can't believe I've had this recipe in my box since 2007 & hadn't tried it. Will make again that is for sure.

Backyard Bourbon Beef Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
Very nice with a hint of sweet. The steak was very tender. We originally adjusted recipe to amount of steak we were doing, but hubby still had to cut it in half again & had plenty to marinate in. I did think the soy sauce was a little dominating & made it salty for my preference so we'll cut that back just a tad for next time. I suppose since we marinated overnight could be why it seemed salty to me. We decided a serving for one will be enough marinade for one pound of steak. If that doesn't work we'll adjust accordingly.

Smoky Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2014
Really good rub. Hubby wants to try on ribs & pork roast also. Quick & easy, but I thought to salty for us b/c of health so will try 1 tsp seasoned salt next time. Keeper.

Herbed Greek Roasted Potatoes with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
Didn't use all the water, just 1T & 1 tsp total. Also didn't have fresh mint, but used dried so it did have some mint flavor. Since it was hot outside we used our electric grill to cook these instead of warming up the house. Will make again.

Balsamic Chicken and Fresh Mozzarella

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
I liked it better than hubby, but will make a few changes next time. We won't slice the chicken as because it was to hard to keep basil, moz & tomato on. Next I won't use fresh moz pearls, but slices of moz. Because I did those things so it could be presented nicely, the chicken had a cool taste instead of being hot. Liked the flavors.

Slow Cooker Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2014
This is your basic minestrone start up. It was easy & good, but think it was really because of our homemade Italian Sausage from this site. I would make this again since we don't always want the beans & other ingredients with minestrone soup.

Freezer Peach Pie Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
The taste was pretty good but did use more tapioca & cornstarch others suggested. This sure was easy to make into a pie since the work was done & in the freezer. The problem I had was I thought it was frozen when I took it out of the pan to put into the freezer bag & it wasn't as solid as I thought so ended up with a mess dripping down the freezer walls. When I went to bake things were fine, except it took so much longer. I'd say when I turned it down to the 350 it actually baked for more than an hour total. Will make again & see how it goes then.

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
Better half said a 4, but I thought a 3. Easy to make, but needed some zip. Will make again, but try adding some cayenne pepper to the cracker, potato etc coating. Think my bake chicken strip recipe is better but will be a good wife & make these again for hubby.

Zucchini Cheddar Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2014
After seeing this yesterday we had to try today. Fry hot so they're crispy. Gave this 4 only because it does need the recommended garlic. We used garlic powder & it wasn't enough so next time we'll use more garlic powder or a whole garlic minced. Tried plain & w/sour cream as others suggested. Hubby & I both feel eating them free of anything was the best. Next time we make these I'd like to try using half the bath of dough & add other herbs or spices to give it a lift or jolt also.

Spicy Mango Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2014
Have made this several times & really easy to make. We like spicy, but are still trying to find the right amount of red pepper flakes for us. We're down to trying 1/4 tsp for a serving of 3. Love those mangos.

Skewered Cantaloupe

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
Won't be making this again. The cantaloupe tasted mushy & the sauce did nothing to enhance the flavor. We ate the rest of the cantaloupe as usual with a little salt on it & it was fine, not mushy.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
Have made this several times for us & neighbors. I do use 1 1/2 c sugar & may have to try 1 1/3 cups sugar or less. I've been doing 1/2 the brown sugar, cinnamon & pecan mixture & it is much better. Using the entire amount is just way to sweet for us. This is a big hit & goes fast. I've even made this when I only had 3/4 c of sour cream & it still was great.

Easy Mango Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
This took me by surprise. It is good, but I don't know if it is the fish sauce or what that really makes it taste like something you like, but can't eat much of. The texture of it feel strange in the mouth. Keeping it in my recipe box, but don't think I could have this more than maybe once or twice a year.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
OK but have better recipes for Salmon from this site. It wasn't very hot like I thought it would with the title being "Firecracker". I could always use more red pepper flakes I suppose. I didn't have peanut oil, but used canola with smashed peanuts in it so it would at least get some peanut flavor. Sorry, just disappointed in it.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
Hubby said this was a 4 or 5, but I felt it was a 3 so I compromised. It is different, but I'm not sure I want to cover up a piece of good steak with this very often.

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
Took advice & added garlic. Hubby thought it had a crunchy taste, even though the zucchini was cooked through. We both liked that.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
Oh sooooo good. I've never had kale before & someone had given us a plant for our garden. Didn't know what to do with it except use in a salad, but hadn't even done that yet. I doubt now I'll even go that route because these are so quick & easy. We'll be planting kale next year for sure. I already told several others about these & we just tried them yesterday.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
OK, but hubby thought it was a waste of good strawberries. Guess I won't make this again. Very easy to make though.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
OMG this was good. This is getting 5 stars because it is quick, easy & no hassle & taste high end. We did add some garlic like others suggested & would agree to this. We also marinated it overnight. This was so juicy & wasn't strong on balsamic which I was afraid would happen. A definite keeper. This will be used often.
