Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This was just okay. It tasted too much like tomato paste and was pretty plain.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
Incredible! You won't have any leftovers. I used red wine (merlot) in place of the water. I will make this again and again, it has replaced my mom's lasagna recipe!

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
LOVE. I made this recipe and also made the sauce from the "Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala sauce" and this tasted like a meal I'd pay top dollar for in a restaurant. I did rub the tenderloin with olive oil and then coat it with the bread crumbs. I also browned it in a little bit of butter. I will use this recipe again and again.

Lasagna Spirals

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
These were pretty good but I think I prefer the real deal. They took a good bit of effort and were nice for something a bit different.

Yummy Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Very, very good. I did half beef and half spicy sausage and felt that the pepperoni was a bit much. That is probably my fault for using the sausage but next time I will do the same and cut the pepperoni in half. Definitely double the sauce, it's not nearly enough. I'll make this again!

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
This was so, so good. I cooked the pork tenderloin using the cooking method and bread crumbs from "Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin" and made the sauce in the same pan where I browned the meat. I added a clove of minced garlic because we are garlic lovers but otherwise made the Dijon Marsala sauce as stated in the recipe. I used a dry Marsala wine. This entire recipe took me about 20 minutes of prep time and time checking on it while cooking but tasted like I spent hours on it. This is a keeper!

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
These are fabulous!! My picky husband requested them for our Christmas Eve meal, in place of my ham which he really loves. They had a great hint of spice/heat that really made them delicious. I only made 1.5 lbs of ribs but still made the same amount of sauce and was glad that I did. We'll make these again and again.

Apple Cider Sauce and Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
This wasn't bad but it wasn't good. The apple flavor is completely lost underneath the Worcestershire and poultry seasoning.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
So delicious. One of my guests for T-day dinner ate 4 servings! I did change one thing that I think made my turkey breast extra juicy. Instead of melting the butter I cut it into about 1/4 inch slices. I cut small slits into the turkey skin on the breast and inserted a slice of butter into each. This really kept the breast very moist while it cooked. This is my new go-to turkey recipes. Thanks!

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Crazy good - used a pre-cooked ham and cooked it in water for about 1.5 hours before following the glaze recipe. My husband asked for the leftovers for dinner the next night - a sure winner.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
I have made this several times. It is so easy to serve along with toppings to build your own burritos. Great for visitors or we also did this for Super Bowl. A real hit. I do double the spices and cut the meat into chunks (about 2-3 inches square) so that they really get coated in the seasoning. Also cut the salt in half, you really don't need that much. Delicious!

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
This was very, very good. The reason for my 4 star rating was because I swapped fresh garlic for pimento peppers. I think this was key and with the pimento peppers instead of the garlic this would have lacked a lot of flavor. I made some other substitutions to make this more friendly to my waistline: -used fat free half-n-half in place of heavy cream -I pounded the chicken thin and coated a pan with 2 tsp of olive oil before broiling the chicken instead of frying it -I cooked some whole-grain pasta and let it finish cooking (the last 2 mins) in the sauce and then ate that alongside the chicken. I'll make this over and over again using these modifications. The change to the half-n-half and butter saved 166 calories and 21 grams of fat per serving!

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This is delicious! I made it exactly as stated and used dark chocolate icing. I served it at Thanksgiving and even my father, who usually doesn't have much of a sweet-tooth, went back for seconds. I did make this the day before and allowed it to refrigerate overnight. The texture was perfect that way. I also sent this in with my husband to a potluck at his work and he returned with a dish that looked like it had been about licked clean.

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
This was pretty good. My husband and I both enjoyed it and it was nice to have something a bit different from ordinary tacos. It did, however, taste almost exactly like tacos and my husband and I both concluded that for all of the extra effort this recipe requires it just isn't worth it.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This is wonderful! I would have rated it 5 stars but I made many modifications based on other reviews. Do saute and add some minced garlic and onion, it really enhances the flavor. I used 3 cans of beans and kept 1 can whole to add at the end. I added about 2 tsp of fresh lime juice toward the end of cooking. I used a medium salsa to give it a bit of a kick and also added a dash of hot pepper sauce. What a wonderful, healthy and hearty soup! I make extra portions of this and take in for lunch.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
This was really good. I used a splash of orange liquer and I liked the extra flavor. I'll make this recipe again.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
These were pretty good but I modified the recipe. I LOVE garlic but cut the amount by at least half and they had plenty of garlic. I also used half the amount of the oils/butter and they were still pretty greasy. The cheese kind of clumped up a minute after I sprinkled it and looked unattractive. I won't make these again.

Italian Chicken with Garlic and Lemon

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
This is very, very good and so easy to make. I use skinless, boneless chicken breasts and do not fry the potatoes. I simply cook them down in with the chicken and these two changes cut WAY down on the fat content.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
This was okay. I have stolen the "pats of butter under the skin" bit from this recipe and combined it with the "Perfect Turkey" recipe. We really prefer our turkey brined - it just makes it so juicy.
