Twelve Minute Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Maybe just me but I thought this was dry. I added a small amount of olive oil and a handful of chopped roasted red peppers from the jar but still was not impressed. I used bow tie pasta in place of the rotini. There are other chicken pasta recipes on this site I like better.

Italian Chicken Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
This was really a good dish for only a few ingredients!! I added chopped roasted red pepper and sprinkled with Asiago and Parmesan cheese. I will make this again.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
AWESOME!!! I mean the cinnamon really gives this bread a great taste! I would rate this higher than 5 stars if I could!!! I halved this recipe and used 2 mini loaf pans. I cut the sugar back by 1/4 cup and it still pretty sweet. Baked for 38 minutes. The bottom was a little browner than I liked but had to get the middle cooked. Make sure you grease the pan well cause the berries in the batter can stick in the pan. I didn't get to try the bread until the next morning after it was in the fridge...really great flavor! This goes to the top of my yearly strawberry recipes.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Love these! First weekend for strawberry pickin' so you gotta do some with chocolate. I melted dark chocolate and white chocolate almond bark. Didn't use the shortening. I did half dipped in dark and half with the almond bark. After sticking in the freezer for 10 minutes, drizzled remaining chocolate on berries. I didn't have any strawberries left! I used my leftover chocolate by laying out dry roasted peanuts on waxed paper and drizzling both chocolates of the peanuts until set...YUM!

Dave's BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
This was tasty for a red sauce. I did only put in a dash of the hot sauce cause the kids were eating it on chicken quesadillas.

Soccer Ball Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
I used the bowl and cake directions to make this cake. Instead of the licorice I searched the net for something different. I used the white frosting II/wedding cake icing recipes from this site to put a thin layer of icing on first. Used a paper pattern to cut out the hexagon and pentagon shape. Traced onto the cake with a toothpick. Used a regular tip to draw the outline on the ball blue (colored small amount of icing). Used a star tip to fill in all the white parts of the cake with the remaining icing. Lastly, I placed coconut in a ziploc bag and put in some green food coloring to coat. (the grass around the ball). My 15 year old son who LOVES soccer LOVED this cake for his birthday

Carolina Style Low Carb Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
can you say AWESOME!?!?!! I needed a bbq sauce to use in the Texas Chicken quesadilla recipe so I decided to try a red sweet sauce and a mustard savory sauce. This was a winner hands down. I will be making this sauce again to try on chicken, steak and ribs on the grill this summer. This would be good on sandwiches too!!

Texas Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
AWESOME!!! The caramelized onions is the key to really making these taste great! I was out of bottled bbq sauce so I found 2 recipes to try on this site. The "Carolina low carb bbq sauce" and "Dave's bbq sauce". Since this recipe was called "Texas" quesadillas, I figured the bbq sauce had to be a red, sweet sauce. I baked covered in the oven the first 10 minutes for a slightly softer quesadilla. I liked the red bbq sauce but LOVED, LOVED the "Carolina low card bbq sauce (a savory sweet yellow mustard) on these!!! I will definitely make this recipe again and again!

Buttermilk Syrup

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
This tasted good but nothing like a "syrup" to me. I have made many of the other "syrup" recipes from this site and many are very good and easy to make. I followed this recipe as stated except for cutting to 8 servings. This was easy to make and didn't taste bad. This was very thick and caramel-like in texture and taste. Would but much better for an ice cream topping.

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
Saw a photo of this salad and wanted to love it but barely liked it. I scaled back to 4 servings and didn't use the olives but chopped grilled chicken breast in it's place. Even with the fresh basil I thought this would have a lot more flavor than it did. I used the french loaf recipe from this site for the bread that was a day old. I may try this again.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
Very moist bread! I did cut back on the sugar by 1/2 cup and it was still sweet enough. Sprinkled in a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg to add additional flavor. I used chopped walnuts in place of pecans sprinkled on top. Finally I did use 3 mini loaf pans, baked 42 minutes at 325. Will make again!

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
I've been making a similar version of this salad the last few years. Since I don't like hard boiled eggs I don't use them. In their place I use crumbed bacon and fresh herbs. Personally, my family doesn't like warm potato sald cause we always eat in the summer time with bbq. I like to make it a day ahead of time for the flavors to blend.

French Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
I'm continue to have a problem making yeast breads! I read most of the reviews to get pointers. I also made sure to have the right yeast. I followed the recipe as stated but did start the mixing using my kitchen aid. I only needed 5 cups of flour and kneaded the dough 5 minutes. First rise was good. I divided the dough into 3 small loaves but the 2nd rise really didn't happen (was in a warm place). Maybe I rolled the dough to thin or too tight?? I was not happy with the result of the cooked product. Only one loaf even looked like french bread and the taste was slighty dense and not light.

Pasta Sauce with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
This was very good! I did not use the ground beef but only sweet italian sausage. I added 1/2 cup of red wine. I used the sauce with the Italian Sausage and Peppers recipe from this site. Will make again.

Easy Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
I halved this recipe and followed as stated except for the green onions. Used onion powder in place of the onions. This was thick so I added an additional cup of salsa. This dip tastes best hot and get very stringy as it cools. Next time I will use less spinach.

BBQ Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
Very tasty! I left out the corn (didn't have) and added chopped red roasted peppers and a small amount of shredded cheddar cheese. I used A Very Popular BBQ Sauce recipe from this site for the BBQ sauce.

Quick and Spicy Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
I scaled this recipe to 8 servings. Used 1/2 lb ground sausage in place of 1/2 pound of ground beef. I followed the recipe as stated except for the jalapeno or habanero peppers. I was concerned to would be too spicy for some of the kids eating dinner with us. I did serve the peppers on the side for those to add to their bowls. I felt the chili was very thick. I kept adding water every 15 minutes to try and thin the sauce some. Next time I may add an additional can of tomato sauce. It definitely had some heat even without the peppers.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
I got 12 regular sized muffins out of this recipe. Baked only for 15 minutes. Cut back on the sugar by 1/4 of a cup. My muffins did not raise and my bottoms were a little browner than I would have liked. Had extra kids at our table for dinner so I didn't get a muffin! Guess that means they were good and a 5 star recipe!

Fresh Tortilla Triangles

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
Quick, easy and fresh! I was out of store bought tortillas so I thought I try these. Kids had friends over and I couldn't make them fast enough! I didn't use 2 cups of oil, only enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Cooked 1 minute on each side. Make sure your oil is hot enough before starting or you will end up with soggy chips. Served with Easy Spinach dip recipe from this site.
