Black Forest Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
this review is for the chocolate cake layers only, as I did something different with the cherries and whipped cream. I thought that they turned out a little dry - and I only baked them for 20 minutes.

I used 6 slices of bacon and 10 oz of fresh green beans, which I cooked in the microwave for five minutes. turned out good, would do again.

Irish Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
I used Ghiradelli mix, which is a couple of ounces smaller, but it still worked out. I halved the frosting because I made them in an 8x8 glass pan (which took like 40 minutes to bake), used Kahlua instead of coffee, and didn't boil the mixture first. I thought that the frosting was a little too "oreo-like" with the taste of sugar, but everyone else really enjoyed them and I was asked 2-3 times for the recipe. Personally, I'd try the brownies with kahlua instead of bailey's next time, and use one of my other frostings.

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
this was a pretty major letdown. I followed the instructions exactly, though I needed to bake it about 20 minutes. my husband and I both thought it was pretty plain. I won't make it again.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
this turned out great. I only used 3 chops but kept the sauce the same so there was plenty. I used a chardonnay for the wine, and used herbs de provence instead of rosemary. I also added a little tarragon, and then some sliced onions in the final five minutes or so. Next time I'll try adding mushrooms as well, and consider chicken instead of pork.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
followed this exactly, except there's no way I could get 3c of pineapple in there - I put about 1/2 a pineapple down and moved on. I didn't have a 9" pan so I used an 8"... wouldn't do that again! the mix at the bottom came up the side and bubbled over, causing smoking and requiring me to clean the oven. All that aside, the end product was fabulous. It was ready to pull out after 45 minutes and was just delicious.

Easy Bake Fish

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
followed the directions precisely, using tilapia. it tasted like honey mustard and lemon-pepper mixed... maybe good on chicken, but not on fish. won't make again.

Rich Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
this was my first attempt at mashed potatoes from scratch. It was easier than I was expecting, though I halved the recipe because it was a smaller crowd. I found the end product to be a little bland (I did use onion powder instead of onion salt, as that's what I had on hand), so I'd probably add more garlic next time, and maybe a little more cream cheese, as the taste didn't come through at all.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I used a pound of fresh, steamed greenbeans instead of canned - next time I'd use a pound and a half, plus cut the beans smaller. I'd also add more onion - maybe a third of a cup instead. I'd also cut the cheese down to 1.5 or maybe 1.25 cups instead. Instead of normal Ritz crackers, I crumbled those thin ones - the Parmesan Herb flavor - worked out great. I also topped it with a few of the cheddar fried onions - definitely add that again. UPDATE: I used canned this time, still topped with fried onions, decided to keep the cheese the same. They were the most-requested "seconds" at my Thanksgiving table.

Uncle White's Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
something went wrong for me. I made buttermilk using 1% milk and vinegar, as I've done before and as several other reviewers did, letting it sit 10 minute before adding anything else. Otherwise, I followed the directions - took the dough out of the machine just after it did the "punch down." It was a little stickier than I was expecting but nothing ridiculous. made the balls, put them in the greased muffin tin, covered with a towel and put in the sunlight for half an hour. They rose a little more, but not doubled. Went ahead and baked them ten minutes later - they were thick and a bit hard on the outside.

Ten Minute Szechuan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
I didn't think this was anywhere near as spicy as the szechuan chicken you get in restaurants. It was pretty easy to make, but not a keeper in our house.

Green Bean and Bacon Saute

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
I halved the recipe and used fresh green beans. Turned out great, would make it again. 8-9 minutes was probably long enough, too.

Chocolate Ribbon Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
used a graham cracker crust because it's what I had. The fillings were more than enough - the cool whip on top was really quite a bit higher than the edge of the pie! Everyone loved it, will definitely make again.

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Spinach and Ricotta

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
this was average at best. I followed everything to the letter, except I added a little more minced garlic. The dish took the full hour in the oven, but that wasn't a big deal. I took the pan out part-way through and drained the grease, so there wasn't much in the pan at the end. I made this to use up ricotta and spinach I had, but even with the spices and cheeses it was pretty bland. I wouldn't make it again - for the taste, not worth the time/effort/price.

Sunny Pepper Parmesan Rice with Spinach

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
Gave this a go. Halved the recipe. Used regular rice, not instant. Used minced garlic rather than garlic salt. Used balsamic vinegar. Added another 50% spinach. I'd make it again, but I'd double the spinach next time and try something Italian-ish rather than the balsamic. It didn't "wow" and it took a while to shop all the veggies.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I used thyme instead of rosemary - personal preference. Also used minced garlic instead of whole cloves. Only did two hens but the only thing I cut down on was the oil - otherwise it worked out fine. I had to cook the hens about 75 minutes, and they were still just barely done (thermometer read 165). I boiled the sauce 10 minutes before I just added cornstarch to speed things up. Flavor was magnificent, though - would absolutely serve for company next time!

Sheryl's Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
great idea, but didn't love it. cutting the potatoes wasn't the problem - I struggled to get the seasoning and butter (and, later, the cheese) into the pieces.

Bacon Cheddar Chive Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
so I used sour cream instead of the CoM soup, butter instead of the veg oil, and 8tsp fresh chives instead of the 4tsp dried. Baked about 23 minutes - smelled wonderful! They were a bit denser than I was expecting, but hubby likes biscuits better than muffins so no problem there. He thought they were okay, I thought they were slightly above average. Overall, I wasn't impressed... took me probably 30 minutes of prep, and the end result just didn't do it for me.
