Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
These were ok. They weren't the flavor that I was expecting. I expected a strong pumpkin flavor, with a hint of spiciness. I did make one tiny change - I used rum extract instead of vanilla in the frosting. The frosting is the best part. :) Overall, I will probably make these again, the cookies are moist and they taste good, the flavor is just more subtle than I expected. I wouldn't say they are anything to write home about, but they aren't bad either. Also, I should've taken the advice of others who said to bake them 12 minutes instead of 10. They could definitely use the extra minute or two. (I had assumed that it was more of an oven variation thing than an actual necessity. Normally my oven burns things if they aren't being watched very very carefully. I almost always have to pull stuff out a minute or two early.)

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
VERY TASTY! I made this for my parents to eat when they got back from bowling league. They devoured it! My mom wasn't entirely sure what i was doing so she made rice and green beans and served the chicken over it instead of doing sandwiches, but both parents reported good things, which is rare! This made the house smell delicious! And, for the record, I used Kraft BBQ sauce and it was delectable! I did use about a 1/4 more Italian dressing, but more on accident than anythign eles (the pour spout on the bottle came out, so maybe it was more than that!). Anyway, I think I am going to serve bbq chicken sandwiches for super bowl! thanks.

Caribbean BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
This was very good! We used this on ribeyes on the grill because I was tired of the same old same old. Even my dad, who is the worst person in the house to feed, thoroughly enjoyed it. We found it was best when it was brushed on the meat as the meat is cooking instead of just pouring it on after. Very different flavor, very good. (BTW- I DIDN'T use black rum, I used gold, and it was still tasty! Oh, and a touch of coconut rum too.)

Anne's Hot Ham and Swiss Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was very good, very tasty and good for something different than normal. I took this to a party and almost all of it is gone. It is SALTY though because of all the ham, but next time I will try to buy low sodium soup and see if I can't find something to cut the salt taste. But, all in all, definitely a winner! We will make this again, even if it's just for our family.

Caribbean-Spiced Pork Side Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I am sorry to say that, even though I thoroughly enjoyed this change of pace, the rest of my family did not. Out of the five of us, only three liked it. My mother thought it was too peppery, and my brother did not like it at all (but then, he's kind of picky). Anyway, as much as I loved the departure from BBQ-slathered, messy, all taste the same ribs, the others did not. I hate to mess up your rating!
