Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
This was really good. I made it as stated, but would make some changes for next time. I would consider making more sauce since I served it over noodles. I'd leave out the salt since it was a little too salty for me. I'd put in about a teaspoon of ginger and an additional tablespoon of brown sugar. By doing that I think it would be just about perfect!

Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I have never eaten tostones, or plantains in any way, and just wanted the experience. They are easy to make and appear to have turned out the way they're supposed to. I have to agree with other reviewers that there isn't much taste, but the crunch is nice.

Slow Cooker Marmalade Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I liked the flavor of this, but I found myself wishing the sauce was a little thicker. I served it over brown rice and would have liked it more if it had clung some to the rice. Nevertheless, it's a good dish, and easy to prepare.

Irish Soda Farls

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
My dough was really soft, even after I added some additional flour, so instead of rolling it out and cutting it, I just dropped blobs of it on the griddle. I found my heat needed to be medium high in order to get them to brown properly. Nevertheless, I enjoyed them with some butter and jam. I'm not sure I would make them regularly, but they were a nice St. Patrick's Day treat.

Ground Beef 'n' Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This is a pretty good basic ground beef dinner. I had planned to use peas as suggested, but found I didn't have enough and had to add mixed vegetables, and that was fine. I would have liked the oregano flavor to be stronger. I didn't have refrigerator biscuits and made mine from scratch, adding the cheese halfway through the baking.

Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
This is one of the best recipes I've ever tried from AR, and at this point I've eaten over 300 of them! It's a company-worthy dish that is very easy to prepare. I planned to make it exactly as written, but in the middle of preparation I discovered I had no basil (HOW did that happen???) and I substituted Italian Seasoning. I liked the result so well I will probably go that route in the future. I served it over penne, and next time I would definitely double the sauce. This is outstanding, and I highly recommend it.

Pesto Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
I used some leftover feta cheese and was delighted at the flavorful result. Others have mentioned variations they've done, and I can see this recipe as a jumping off place for a lot of combinations. The pesto is the key, and if you really like pesto you could add even more.

Roast Beef Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Very good, and a different use of roast beef and shells. Would probably be good with leftover roast beef and gravy as well.

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
This was surprisingly good. On the advice of others I kicked it up a little with a generous amount of Worcestershire sauce, some onion, and a good bit of coarse black pepper. I think I will be returning to it for a quick weeknight dinner.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I needed a sweet treat to take to a gathering and didn't have much time to make anything. This was the solution since it doesn't take long and is made with things that are usually around. I did have some problems breaking it apart and wound up with a lot of useless little pieces, but what I could use tasted great. You should probably press the nuts into the chocolate too, because a lot of mine came off as I was breaking it apart.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This was the first cheesecake I ever baked, and everyone who ate it loved it. I was pleased that there were no cracks, but I did use a water bath. I had the same issue as Ali where I had some small lumps of vanilla and flour that I couldn't get rid of. It was an appearance issue rather than a texture or taste one. Add the vanilla, then add the flour slowly. I served it was some strawberry coulis.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I like that this can be prepared very quickly. I served it over rice and it was good, but it didn't "wow" me.

Golden Mushroom Pork & Apples

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
The meat was very tender and good, but I thought the sauce was only okay. Very easy to put together.

Bobotie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
It's always hard to make a recipe for something you've never eaten or even seen, since you're really not sure what you're aiming at. I never heard of Bobotie until I saw this recipe, and the mix of ingredients intrigued me so I took the plunge. It smells wonderful when baking. The first bite was a little strange, but as I continued to eat it the taste began to grow on me and I can honestly say I liked it. (My husband thought it was only okay). My only fault was with the sauce. Some have described it as "custard" but mine turned out more like scrambled eggs. If I were to make this again, I think I would add a little more chutney. If you're looking for something unusual, this is worth a try.

Migas

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I never heard of migas until I was browsing the egg recipes. A friend suggested frying the tortillas first so there would be some crunchiness in the eggs, which is what I did. If you do that, wait until the eggs are partially set to add them or they will lose their crispness. I can see lots of room for variation in the ingredients added to this and I will try some others at a future time.

Skillet Sole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
Although it was something different to do with fish, overall I thought it was just okay. I would have preferred a thicker sauce that clung to the fish a bit. I served the extra sauce over brown rice.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
How can anything so easy taste so good? I served some of the sauce over rice and it was great. A real winner that we'll definitely have again.

Rosemary Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
So good! I used fresh rosemary and the meat was so tender and full of flavor. A word of caution though; if you use a tenderloin the cooking time is far too long. Mine was ready in less than an hour. I added a little water to the pan after the meat was done and served the juice over the meat. This is a great and easy way to make a delicious pork roast.
