Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I had no problem making this cake. It came out very moist, almost too moist, and it looked good. My problem with it, was the flavor. I just did not like the taste of the cinnamon with the chocolate. It sounded good, but was just kind of odd. Maybe my mistake was using all of the cinnamon/sugar mixture along with the chocolate chips(I sprinkled all that was left in the bowl). Honestly, I just couldn't eat it.

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
Was looking for a quick side dish for dinner and had these ingredients on hand. I like red onion and we love rice, so I figured this would be good. Well, I did not like it. For me, the flavors just didn't work. I used half of a medium red onion. The flavor of the onion with the pepper was just odd. Can't imagine how overwhelming it would have been with a whole onion. My husband did not care for it either.

Chicken Teriyaki - It's a Secret

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
Although this recipe was good and my family, except my 6 yr. old, liked it, I am giving it 4 stars for 2 reasons. One, it tastes NOTHING like teriyaki, and two, it was pretty salty. That being said, this made a very moist and tender chicken with a nice flavor. I followed the advice of other reviewers and added about 1tsp. garlic powder. I feel it definitely needed this. I also made it on my Foreman grill. Next time, I will probably use a little less soy sauce, maybe a half cup. Thanks for sharing.

Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
My husband said, "definitely 5 stars!" So, there it is. These were very good. In a pinch, I used garlic powder(about 1 1/2 tsp), vegetable oil, since I didn't have canola oil, russet potatoes, and I probably used about 2 or 3 tbsp. of lemon juice(didn't measure). Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing!

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
Made this for dessert tonight. Great recipe! My husband and kids really enjoyed it. Didn't change a thing. I had all of the ingredients on hand so I thought, why not? This recipe took only minutes to make and was cheap! I had no problems with lumps, but agree that it was a tad too sweet. Next time, I might subtract a couple of tablespoons of the sugar...or maybe not. I will never buy store-bought pudding after having this. Will definitely make this again! Thanks:)

Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
So simple to make! This is a snap to put together. I cut up my chicken breast before cooking them. I served this over egg noodles. I also put out a little bowl of sour cream to top the dish as an option. I had two helpings. One with a bit of sour cream mixed in with the sauce, and one without. Was good either way. Easy, quick, inexpensive and tasty! Thanks for sharing.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
I don't think I did anything wrong as this was a very easy recipe to follow, but I did not like this. I used white peaches because that was what I had, but other than that, I made no changes. I doubt that white peaches would make a big difference, especially since I tried a slice as I was putting this cobbler together, and it was ripe and sweet. Well, I did not like this. It just was very underwhelming. I even tried topping it with vanilla ice cream. My husband said he just didn't care for it. In my opinion, it was weird and "bready" and just not good. Too bad.

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
I was excited to try this salad as I like all of the ingredients it calls for. Not quite as great as I thought it would be. Yes, it is a healthy salad and it is quite filling. I like cabbage but not sure if this would have been better with a romaine lettuce or another more mild green. All of the other flavors work well together, but in my opinion, the cabbage is too overpowering in this salad.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
I have tried plenty of banana bread recipes, and this rates somewhere in the middle. It was okay, but not great or even very good. Not quite sure what it's missing. I ended up serving it warm with a scoop of strawberry ice cream on top since that was all I had, and my kids enjoyed it.

Seasoned Swai Fish Fillet

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
So, I followed this recipe to a T, but just couldn't like it. To be fair, I am not sure if it was the recipe, or the actual fish itself that I did not like. I had never had swai fish before but bought some because it was inexpensive. We regularly eat some type of mild, white fish, including cod, Ono and tilapia, so it's not that we don't like fish. This just had a strange taste, and I didn't care for the texture.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
This was dinner tonight. It was very tasty, and so easy. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs because that is what I had. Followed recipe as is and it was great! Thanks for a quick and yummy recipe.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
These brownies were pretty good, but not the best. I thought the frosting was a bit too sweet. My husband said they would have been better without it.

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
Happened to see this was the recipe of the day, and I had all of the ingredients on hand so, I made this for dinner tonight. It was good, but as my husband said, "nothing memorable". It was quick and easy, and I didn't have to run to the store today for any ingredients but, I doubt ths recipe would ever come to mind again. For me, it just seemed to be missing something.

Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
I hate to review a recipe if I don't follow it exactly but, t used chicken thighs and I baked them instead of grilling. So even with those changes, this was still very good. Unfortunately, I slightly over baked my chicken so it was a bit dry. However, the flavor was very good. It was not lemony or vinegary at all. I think this is a great recipe, only next time, we will grill it, as the recipe states to do. Thanks for sharing!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
Made this tonight, to serve alongside Barbeque Chicken, also from this site. This was a very quick and easy side recipe. Followed exact directions. My husband said he loved it. My kids, 4 and 6, didn't care for it, probably because of the basil. I really enjoyed this super simple, inexpensive, and tasty side dish! Will definitely make again...Thanks!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
I am giving this recipe 5 stars because it delivers what it says...quick and easy! I have to start by saying that this was my first time ever making a homemade pizza. Although I feel pretty confident in the kitchen, making a pizza sort of intimidated me. This recipe changed that! This recipe produced a perfect, thin and crispy crust for my pizza. For those who think that the crust lacks some flavor, I think this can be fixed by experimenting with a pinch of this and that. I brushed the crust with olive oil once it was in the pan, then I pricked it all over with a fork because I think my mother-in-law does that, and then I sprinkled italian seasoning all over it. I can now make homemade pizza anytime...So happy I tried this!

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 3, 2013
If I could give this 3 1/2 stars, I would. The only change I made to this was that I omitted the black olives, simply because I didn't have any. I thought this was good but, it didn't blow my mind. Flavors work well together. This tasted like the type of salad that you would find in a potluck. The kind that was pretty good and would be gone before the rest of the other dishes. Don't know if I would want to make this again anytime soon but it wasn't bad at all.

Simple Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Don't usually care too much for stroganoff but, had all of the ingredients on hand and wanted a quick dinner. Had to use 2 beef boullion cubes with some water because I didn't have any beef broth. Husband and I each had 2 helpings. Surprisingly good.
