Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
i don't like cake and I don't like to bake, but I had to make a dessert for a potluck dinner. I chose this recipe because of the ratings it had. I followed the advice of another and used mini chocolate chips.....don't really know if it made a difference taste-wise. I did have to bake it about 15 minutes longer than written. Took the leftovers to work and it disappeared! And, as someone who doesn't like cake, I thought it was fantastic (everyone else thought so too!). I also want to comment on the people who rate lower on this recipe based on their own changes. I strongly feel you have no right to rate the recipe if you've made your own changes or additions to the recipe. Make the recipe as written, then rate away....it's not fair to the person who submitted the recipe to have it slammed for changes you made.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
This was very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly, except cooked it on low for about 8 hours. There was no way I could slice the meat since it was falling apart when I lifted it out of the slow cooker (which isn't a bad thing). It was just a little too spicy for my taste, so I'll probably use just one pepper the next time. I also thought the sauce would be thicker (mine was very runny) so I'll thicken it up with flour or cornstarch after I take the meat out the next time I make it.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This was pretty good, but there was something about the vinager flavor that I didn't like. I will definitely make this again, but won't add the vinager and will add another can of clams as well as a little bacon.

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I've made this twice in a week because everyone loves it. I did use a little less dressing the second time I made it and liked it a little better that way. I took a double batch on a four-day trip and it never got soggy. Excellent summer recipe!

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Fantastic. I didn't have any sage, so I ground up some rosemary. I used apple cider for the vinegar. I used a 2 pound tenderloin and it roasted about 1 hour and 45 minutes...probably about 15 minutes too long because it turned out just a little bit dryer than I prefer. When I fix it the next time I'm going to double up on the sauce amount.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Made this as written (except I didn't dredge in flour...low carb diet) up until the end when I began to simmer the sauce. I love balsamic vinegar, but I thought it was too strong at this point, so I added more chicken broth (about a half cup) and a few tablespoons of cream to the simmering sauce. Loved it!

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
This is a great recipe. I did add an apple (granny smith), as another reviewer did, just out of curiosity. It was great and I'm sure the soup is just as good prepared as listed. I was skeptical of the taste as it was cooking - it just tasted ok, but after I added the sherry and cream, the soup just took off! This recipe is a keeper!

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Excellent! I made two minor changes: used cherry tomatoes (cut in half) and didn't use the olives, instead I sprinkled some capers in there. This is a keeper. My picky teenage daughter even loved it (she suggested to put in cubed chicken next time...hmmm!)

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
Very yummy - I ended up having to bake it 20 minutes more than the recipe called for. As suggested by other reviewers, I also added a little vanilla and lemon zest. Next time for the topping I may use half regular sugar and half brown sugar - we'll see!

California Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I only made two changes to this recipe (but I'm sure it's great the way it is). I added just a little garlic to the chicken (we love garlic) and I grilled the chicken instead of sauteing. I agree with others that it may be easier to dice the tomato (and even the avocado) to make sure you have all the ingredients in one bite. Excellent and easy recipe!

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Excellent recipe. I followed it exactly with the exception of using plain yogurt (I didn't have any), so I substituted it with sour cream. When I make this again, I'll probably use chicken breasts (or a mixture of breast and thighs) instead of thighs (personal preference). Thanks for the recipe - I'll be making this a lot in the future!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
Excellent! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfect. I rinsed the seeds (didn't dry them), seasoned, and roasted (for about 55 minutes). I may add a little more salt the next time, or just use garlic salt instead of garlic powder.

Grecian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
LOVED IT! I followed the recipe as written, except I didn't have fresh limes (just the lime juice in the green plastic "lime") excellent anyway. I also added a very small amount of fresh rosemary (about a tsp.) to the marinade. We couldn't get enough of the pork. I can't wait to try this marinade with chicken!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Like so many of the other reviewers, my kids ate these up when they've never liked brussels sprouts before. The best part is the darkened leaves! I cut the sprouts in half to save cooking time (they took about 25 minutes). Delicious!

Spicy Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
This was really good and fresh tasting. I made a few modifications...left out the green onion (didn't have any), used dried seasonings instead of fresh (didn't have any), added some leftover shitake mushrooms when I cooked the onion/garlic mixture, used ground chicken instead of turkey (didn't have any), used about a tablespoon more of wine than called for, added a little salt at the end. This was so easy, healthy and quick. Even my teenagers loved it!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This is so excellent and so simple. I followed everything as written (except I didn't have any celery seed so I used garlic powder instead). I did drain off the extra liquid that the veggie/chicken mixture was in because it looked like it would make everything too thin. That was my mistake...I wish I hadn't done that because it would have made the inside slightly more "saucy" (which would have been better). Mine was still very good. I wouldn't change a thing next time. The entire pie was gone in about 10 minutes!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
I thought this was very good, but I did make some adjustments. I added half the sugar that it was called for, and even then, I thought it was still a little too sweet; added only one tbsp of sesame seeds, and a little more vinager than what was called for (I also used half white distilled vinager and half raspberry balsamic vinager). I served this and was given many compliments.

Grilled Tuna Teriyaki

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
I followed the recipe as it reads, except I let it marinade about 3 hours and added about a tablespoon of lime juice. Excellent recipe.
