Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
We LOVED this recipe. I bought our tenderloin from Costco and followed the recipe. I started dinner with Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad (from this website), sticky rice, and Roasted Asparagus with Herbes de Provence (also from this website). With a little Trader Joe's bread, this was one delicious dinner! Yum!

October Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
These muffins are a huge hit with the pumpkin lovers in my family. In fact, I'll need to do a double batch this afternoon as per my order (you can't deny little granddaughters!). I got ten good-sized muffins from this, all moist and yummy. I suggest letting them cool for a few hours to peel away the liners if you use them because they are so moist the papers stick otherwise. I followed the recipe using my own mix of pumpkin pie spice (recipe here on AR), and for the nutmeg I used a healthy dose of a special mix of apple pie spice that contains cardamom I was gifted by my friend ~Lissa~. They took 25 minutes in the oven before the tops sprang back lightly. Thanks for making me popular with my family!

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
This frosting is delicious! It may take a little thought beforehand to prepare the strawberries, but it is SOOO worth that step. My chopped up strawberries slightly overflowed the measuring cup before I carefully reduced it as recommended by the author. Talk about a fresh yummy frosting! Thank you so much, Candice!

Honey-Soy Pork Chops from the Bradshaw Family

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
This was very delicious! Making the marinade as written, it took a little over one lemon to get the 1/4 cup (you ALWAYS have to save the zest for other recipes!). I did use three cloves of garlic. We always use bone-in pork chops when possible because the flavor is so much richer than just the boneless! One last thought is that I grilled only three pork chops, and to do four would mean that the marinade would be pretty sparse. In this case, I would not necessarily make more---rather, take a little more than 1/2 cup out for the marinade and turn them in the bag a little more frequently. I did not use all the reserved marinade when BBQing the chops. This was excellent, and I will definitely make this again!

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
I glazed my leaf-shaped sugar cookies in a tri-color look following the directions suggested by Larkspur. I made up a batch and a half of the glaze, divided it into three portions, gave each one a color, and then put them on a plate side by side. I dipped each cookie into the colors, kind of mooshing them around a little to get the colors to run together. It worked perfectly! To get the veins, I then added all the colors together, added brown coloring to that, and used a toothpick to work that down the center and to the sides of the leaves. I was very happy with my results. BTW, I did have to add a little more corn syrup and water as I went along--just little dabs--to keep the right consistency of the glaze. It's pretty easy to get whatever consistency you need for your project! Thanks for a good recipe!

Ham Cake-ettes

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Here's another 5 star recommendation for these little yummies! The requirements for the recipe are spot on perfect. Please do make sure that your panko does not have extra ingredients added (there are so many new varieties) because otherwise you will want to adjust the salt factor. Thanks for a perfect use of leftovers, Avon!

Honey Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
These almonds are delicious, just as I suspected they'd be. The only change I made was to use lemon olive oil in place of the almond oil. These will satisfy my sweet tooth along with giving me some nutrition! I could also see adding a little cayenne to this mix for an interesting twist. Thanks for the recipe, Behr!

Double Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
This is a delicious, very yummy bean soup! And this comes from someone who has not in the past been a big lover of bean soup! The only thing I did differently from the directions was to change how I soaked the beans. I forgot to start them the night before, so with only four hours in a soak, I put them into my slowcooker for about six hours on low before adding the other ingredients. This made a lot, so it was very nice pulling some from the freezer two weeks later! Thanks for this recipe! It will remain on my "best" list just like it has on yours!

Herb and Garlic Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
This is a good, solid salad dressing! I did use olive oil rather than the vegetable oil, and my vinegar was white balsamic--a nice complement to the flavors of herbs. I used my garlic press rather than mincing. I like that the herbs used are what I always have on hand! Thanks for the good measurements!

Fair Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
I love scones like this----just a good flaky vessel for my butter and jam! I did use shortening this time, but next time I'll either use butter flavored shortening or just butter or half butter and half shortening. I didn't bake them the whole time because I thought my parchment paper would catch on fire! I do believe that I will cut the temperature down to 425 degrees next time. I made only half a batch, and the next time I'll cut them into smaller pieces (personal preference). I guess you keep hearing "the next time," and that's because there will be a next time. I'd like to see how they are served at the Fair! Thanks for the recipe!

Opa George's Wild Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
Drats! I only made half a batch for our dinner tonight! It may not last if I don't stop picking at it! As per suggestions made by the submitter of the recipe, I used different mushrooms and nuts (walnuts). I checked out morel mushrooms only to find that not only are they seasonal but very very expensive as well, so I used criminis (baby bellas). I sauteed the mushrooms for a bit in a touch of butter for browning, and I dry roasted the walnuts in a pan. I'm sure that with each substitution of mushroom and nuts that the flavor will vary a little. Next time I'll use hazelnuts because I think that will go with the nuttiness of the rice itself. I think also that I'll go a little short on the sour cream, too, if I even add it at all! I've been eyeing this recipe for a long time, and I'm so glad that it can now enter my repertoire of side dishes. Thanks!

Pinot-Glazed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
These are so very yummy. I almost liked them more before I added the wine, but they are good either way. I did use cabernet sauvignon, but I don't think that would make that big a difference in the final product. The browned butter is what really made the difference. I've always cooked mine in butter, but the browned is really great. Thank you ever so much!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This is a huge hit! I made this for a SoCal gathering of AR Buzzers this last Saturday. I used Earl Grey Tea perfectly flavored with natural bergamot. I followed the directions to a "T"! Who could have guessed what a little pinch--and I mean pinch--of baking soda can do! Perfection in a glass! Thank you for posting this recipe!

Shrimp Primavera with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
Thank you, Luna's Mom! This was an excellent dinner for us tonight. I made this for just the two of us with half a pound of really good shrimp and fusilli rather than rotini (what I had on hand). I did add a little of my lemon olive oil and a touch of pecorino and romano parmesan to the pasta before putting the shrimp mixture on top. Otherwise, I followed your directions. I had to Google the difference between feta and goat cheese earlier today because I had feta on hand. That led me to go out to Sprouts to buy the goat cheese, and I'm so glad I did because it is not as salty and just kind of melts into the dish as you start to stir it around to eat it. Yum! The tomatoes I used were from Sprouts--fire roasted diced tomatoes, and the artichoke hearts are my favorite Trader Joe's (not as salty as others). This was totally excellent. I'll be hard pressed not to have some for breakfast in the morning (we have to wait for leftovers tomorrow night)! Thanks again! EDIT: PS Leftovers were excellent!

Chef John's Creme Fraiche

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
This is a marvelous recipe! I could put it on almost any food in my fridge! I found the correct cream at Trader Joe's, an organic one, and my buttermilk was by Knudsen. I was just going to make a half a batch but went for the whole thing. Am I ever glad! This is better than sour cream! Creme Fraiche doesn't have the same holding power of sour cream as far as consistency goes, and it's not quite as sour. But delicious it is! I highly recommend that you try this! Thank you, Chef John!

Manhattan

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
How can you not like a Manhattan any way it comes? At least if you use a good sweet vermouth and Jack Daniel's. We usually reserve this drink for winter (don't really know why---just a preference), but when I saw that it needed a photo, I pulled out the ingredients (they keep forever). I know the purists are naysayers for this formula as stated, but, hey, it's all good! I must admit I wasn't sure whether the ice was supposed to stay in the drink or not. AND the marschino cherry is NOT optional!
