The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I usually make the "Lemon Square Bars" from this site, but I chose to make this recipe as I didn't have powdered sugar for the crust. The regular sugar worked perfectly. After juicing two lemons and preparing the filling, I realized that the filling would not be enough volume and tart enough for my liking, so I used the other recipe's measurements and they were fabulous! Some lemons just arent as juicy as others, so a specific amount will help to have perfect squares all the time!

Mashed Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
This recipe as stated was just very "meh" for me. I then added fresh chopped garlic, garlic salt, celery salt and basil, and parmesian cheese, and it is much better. I also liked it topped with onion crackers. Bacon in the soup would be good too. Also, if you don't have mashed potatos on hand, it's alot of unnecessary work to make your own, and they just disappear into the soup anyways. Next time I will just thicken with corn starch if I don't have any mashed potatos ready. I will keep this recipe on hand and work with it some. It's a good base and you should try this if you are ready to tweak it a bit.

Simple Syrup

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
Just what'cha need when a recipe calls for "simple syrup". It's not really meant to be by itself.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
Wow! We all loved this, and loved the lime flavor so much that we squeezed lime onto everything on our plate! Will definitely make this on a regular basis, but probably cut the butter because it really didn't make a sauce, just a greace over the chicken, which of course was tastey, but not healthy! Thanks for the great recipe!

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
Oh my my, this is wonderful! Even before it was cooked I couldnt stop eating it! Listened to other reviewers and only left the granola in for the time recommended even though it didn't appear done. It crunches up as it cools and is absolutely fabulous!

Rubbed and Grilled Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
The best grilled pork ever! I sliced the pork first, and then rubbed all over each peice (not excessively), so it would be more flavorful and cook faster, and it tasted absolutely fabulous!

Steam-Grilled Green Onions

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This works very well! We have been making this for a few years now, but it was nice to find the exact recipe so they turn out perfect every time. Of course we will be using this again, thank you!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Best cauliflower I've ever had! Used grated irish dubliner cheese instead of parmesian and topped with crushed onion flavored saltines. Deliciious! Alot of extra fat and calories than our usual steamed veggies so will save this recipe for company, but a definate keeper! Thanks!

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Wow!!! Love these! I have long since sworn off those wrapped caramels for this site's "Chewy Caramel" recipe, which I just happened to have a bunch of in the freezer and they made this recipe absolutely decadent! Will make again for sure!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Very good! I made another recipe very similar to these a few days ago and I'd say they're about equal! I love them with chocolate/raspberry swirled baking chips on top!

Raspberry Squares for Junior Chefs

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
These are good, and adding chocolate/rasberry swirled baking chips on top made them delicious! My only note is that I think 1 cup of rasberry jam is way too much. When trying to press the top layer over the jam, it was oozing all over the place (and I did it Very carefully!) so I ended up scooping off about 1/3 cup of jam, and it was still very difficult to get the top layer even. My junior chef loved helping me make these and I"m sure I'll be making them again! Oh and if you're wondering, I used regular oats instead of quick and they worked fine. They baked for about 10 mins longer but not sure if that was the oats change or a recipe error.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
We all enjoyed this. I melted the icing in the microwave, thinned it a tiny bit with milk and poured 1/3 in the middle layer, and the rest on top. If I make this again, I think I will make a homemade chocolate ganache instead of the pre-packaged icing. This was totally different than anything I've had before so thanks for the recipe, will probably make again with a few tweeks.

Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Pretty good, but the recipe as is, could use a bit more flavor, in my opinion. I added crushed garlic and onion powder to the filling, and it could've used more salt. Also, not rating the recipe based on this because I know it depends on the peppers, but mine weren't hot at all and definately could've used some kick in the filling (and that's coming from a person who thinks mild sauce is too hot!) I will definately make these again, only adding some more flavor next time.

Easy No Bake Cookies

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
My husband and daughter made these cookies last night and they are so yummy! Just like my grandma makes! We used old fashioned oats like others suggested, and wanted to make them lower fat so only used half as much butter and they turned out very nice! Our only complaint is that they are a bit too sweet, next time we'll try using less sugar too, but not quite sure if that will work out as well.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Very yummy and a fun twist to regular fruit salad. The key is to cut the fruit very finely. I used my pampered chef slicer to help get the apples super small and uniform. Mango was yummy in it too. I must say that it is really just a fine fruit salad so I'm not quite sure what all the fuss is about, but I'm sure I will make it again because it is something different, Thanks!

Fruity-Punchy

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
Very yummy. It is just a Bay Breeze with the addition of coconut rum. For more fruit-punchy flavor, add a half ounce of grenadine.
