Jackie's Special Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I was torn between giving this 3 or 4 stars. I made the recipe as written. My husband said it had great potential, but the seasonings were a little overpowering. Next time, I'll make it with less seasoning. I still will use this as a guide, but will not be following it to the letter again.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Very nice indeed. I read some other reviewer's suggestions- I added a little more sugar, about 1/8 of cup or more to get more sweetness. 350 at 9 minutes was perfectly fine. Next time I'm going to add Hazelnut flavoring to it.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
This recipe deserves every star and more. I made this for a church potluck and they were scraping the pot for every last bit. It was easy to make too, because all you do is throw everything in there and enjoy. A word of forewarning to first-timers like me-- I couldn't find the chile peppers so I figured I could just jalepeno peppers instead. The chili turned out fine but my hands were burning the rest of the night from handling the peppers bare-handed! Be careful if you decide to stray from the recipe!

Crispy Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
My husband's stomach is probably giving this 5 stars. He said it was better than Olive Garden's! I used cheap ingrdients froma local store and it still came out fabulous. I decided to add a little Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese to my croutons and I made sure to put on a lot of sauce and cheese. This recipe is easy to adapt for a dinner for two. Definitely will be making again.

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
AWESOME! I followed another reviewer's advice and had all my ingredients on hand and I waited for the perfect boil before timing. I've made them twice this week already! Perfect for holiday entertaining. This is one recipe that deserves all its stars.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
This recipe is good but I wouldn't call it famous. I followed others advice and used 1/2 the butter, uncovering them halfway, and broiling for 5 minutes at the end. I liked it a lot, and I'll probably make them again experimenting with different seasonings.

Guy Approved Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Good but definitely needs some alterations. There was a ton of grease and I was glad I used a pan/dish instead of a cookie sheet. Next time I might try to lay down a little foil (lightly sprayed w/cooking oil) loosely over a rack that overlays my broiling pan so that the oil will drip into the pan and not sit and soak the loaf. I don't think it needs the bacon. My hubby agreed and requested next time I do it with the traditional ketchup or more bbq. The loaf was a little mushy in some places, maybe from the grease. I was able to salvage this by eating a baked potato with it and mixing my potato bites with the mushy bites. I might try this same recipe one more time, but without the bacon and trying to manage the mushiness.

Creamy Strawberry Crepes

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I fell in love with crepes one year at IHOP when they were offering them seasonally. This is a yummy substitute that fills my craving until it's offered again. I give it four stars though because I found the recipe needed some changes. I did the last steps of making the cream cheese filling and whipping the cream first, and I put it in the fridge. I'm glad I did this, because cooking the crepes was VERY time-consuming. 2 tablespoons of batter made the crepes too tiny, even when I did tip the pan every which way. So I upped it to about 4 tablespoons or a little less than 1/4 a cup. I also had to cook it on less than medium heat or else it set too fast before I could spread the batter. If I had to change anything about my experience, I would have made sure my husband was home to entertain our 15 month old daughter. Cooking the crepes took so long, let's just say by the time I was done I had a screaming baby, a toy-scattered kitchen, and a messy diaper by the end of it. If I had used 2 Tablespoons of batter each time, I would have been cooking half the day and brunch would have become afternoon dinner. Time-consuming-- yes, but it's worth the result-- at least until IHOP brings back the crepes!
