African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
I made this last night and used diced tomatoes instead of crushed tomatoes,chicken broth instead of the vegetable broth(Got these ideas from other reviews),shredded cooked chicken seasoned with chicken boullian and pepper. I didn't have crunchy peanut butter but I did have smooth and I just crushed up my own peanuts. I agree with others that the rice should be cooked ahead of time. IT WAS PERFECT!!

Holiday ONLY Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I left some of the skin on the potatoes. The recipe is simple and does taste great but they were a little too thick for my preference. I think it recipe needed to add some milk to it just to smooth it out some.

I loved this cornbread! I only had cornbread from the box and I had no idea what I was missing nor did I know how easy fresh cornbread is to make.

Basic Yankee Bread Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
This recipe is very tasty if you add your own seasonings(which I think it needed more) and also it needed 1 more egg to help bind it all together.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
I love cheesy thick sauce but this was too thick and heavy. I would have to substitute the heavy cream for something else,and for my daughter who is to young for seafood I just substituted that for chicken instead. Very good though.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
This cake was so moist,flavorful,thick and rich. I did use cooled coffee instead of water. I had to go to the fridge a second time for more milk because it was that rich especially with the satiny glaze some of the other reviews recommended

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
I am not really a glaze kind of person but this was good, It seems like i could have just warmed up some icing and saved the trouble of making home made glaze

Spicy Hot Chicken Legs

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
I enjoyed them to some degree. They weren't the slam but they were tasty. I would make a few minor adjustments and that is to use dark meat and remove the skin because it is much more tender and juicy,the flavors just soak into the meat

Broiled Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
I would rather steam the lobster than do this again. Putting it in the broiler made the shell smell really funny.The taste was not what I thould it would be like and I love lobster.

Honey Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
Too plain and was way too sweet for the chicken. I would add a little bit of salt to balance it out a little.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I never thought I would like sugar cookies this much untill I made these with stuff I already had in the pantry. I did add more vanilla like others had mentioned and only cooked them for 8 mins. They came out soft in (but done) in the middle and chewy around the edges. I will be making these again.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
It smelled better than it tasted. I think it needed more salt or something because it was lacking in flavor just from depending on the rosemary.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
It was ok. I had way better tasting pot roast with pearl onion and parsley in it along with some of the same ingredients in this recipe. The cream of mushroom soup threw it off for me. I would search for something more flavorful or just stick with what I'd been doing. Family didn't eat the left overs like they would've with my own recipe.

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Was great but I made too much thinking I could serve it as an entree. Never will do that again because this is definetly supposed to be eaten as an appitezer or snack.

Sweet-Sour Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I am usually not a coleslaw fan but these was sooo worth making from scratch and serving it with our BBQ ribs. It was fresh and kinda lemony.
