Asian Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
Good, but almost identical to another marinate for salmon. I'm going to use the other one instead since we like that one better. I did reduce the amount of soy sauce & it still overpowered the flavor. You could taste the saltiness from the soy sauce.

Purple Monstrosity Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
It didn't as much as I thought it would, but we both got a taste. Thought the banana overpowered. I'll stick to other smoothie recipes we've found on this site.

Heather's Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
Very good. Thought it might be salty or oily, but neither. We will try just 1 1/2T olive oil though next time. Did boil marinade to put over salmon when finished as others suggested. Already gave this recipe to someone else.

Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Tried this 2 times, once by frying per instructions & once on the grill. It is going in the delete file. Just didn't make the grade for us.

Italian Baked Cannelloni

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This recipe is a hard one to evaluate because it tasted ok, but for us it is like a starter recipe. I've decided I won't make this version again, but make my changes to how I think it would be improved to our taste. We like more flavor & this was barely a hint as is. I'll definitely use a lot more of the spices & less cheese, even though we're love our cheese. We felt the cheese & consistency just took over. For the sauce I'm changing that also to something thicker & not as watery with more kick. As this recipe is, it reminds me of growing up on meat & potatoes, now I want seasoning to enhance the taste.

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Quick & easy. I do think it would be better chilled some before serving though. We did add more Greek Olives (I usually don't like olives even). A suggestion to soak cucumbers in salt water first may help if they're to soft & have a lot of juice. Thie will help firm them.

Basil-Garlic Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This was pretty good, but very mild for flavor. Used extra basil even. Since we ony have fresh basil during the summer months (grocery store stuff isn't as good as just picked), I probably won't keep this recipe.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
There was NO flavor to this at all. We tried to save it by adding some other seasoning, but didn't do anything either. Nice thought having a veggie stir-fry, but I'll make my own sauce next time.

Roasted Garlic Zucchini and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Nice change with the red pepper flakes & fresh basil. Baking this during the summer when we have fresh zucchini just doesn't seem right, but that's what air conditioning is for. May try adding mushroom or some red peppers next time. Could use as a veggie main dish also.

French Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
We thought this was better the 2nd day, but that is probably because the 1st day it was almost right out of the oven. W've used for garlic bread & w/basil, tomato & moz cheese grilled. Think next time I'll make 2 loaves & try to freeze one. Not as easy as some bread to make - more time consuming, but will diffinitly make again.

Crazy Chicken Marinade Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Only thing I can say is it was moist. Overall a big waste of spices, nothing blended together & I followed the directions & didn't change a thing. Won't be using this again when there are so many excellent chicken recipes on this website.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Since I don't care for cannellini beans, I used a whole can of blacks & kidney beans. I did use less olive oil & red wine vinegar (1/8c) since it seemed so moist already. I will use more chili powder next time since we like more spice. I let sit overnight & will definitely make again.

Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Easy. Don't need as much oil as called for, we only used 1/4c & could possibly use less. It did taste alittle more Italian than Cajun, but I supposed could always use less Italian seasoning, but for now I won't.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
Nice dish for summer. Did take suggestions to use fresh spinach instead of frozen. Fresh is much better & more appealing. A personal preference is using sun dried tomato vineagrette for all my Italian dressing recipes. Will make this again as a main or side dish.

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Really disappointed. We love cajun spiced food & had high hopes for this, but won't be making again. The spices took over the taste of the sweet potato instead of complimenting it.

Hard Do Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
A sweeter bread that is dense. I don't know what this is supposed to be like to compare so just giving my opinion. Will keep this recipe, but don't know how often I'll make. Maybe as a bun I'd find more uses for it so will try that I think.

Cajun Pasta Fresca

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Different side dish. I didn't have any fresh parsley so used dried & maybe that is why I couldn't rate it higher. Will have to make sure next time I have fresh parsley. Will keep this recipe, but it needs something still for more flavor.

Grilled Peaches with Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Easy. Used vanilla ice cream, but would be more refreshing if using frozen yogurt. Still would like to try with vanilla bean ice cream. Only change I'll make next time is using more ginersnaps. I think that is what makes this dessert. Would recommend that if using ice cream, to use less brown sugar since ice cream is sweeter.

Nitey Night Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Easy & no mess. I used mini choc chips which worked real well. I used less sugar & may try only a 1/2 c next time. Took others suggestion to preheat oven hotter.
