Exquisite Yeastless Focaccia

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
My only problem was that I undercooked it slightly (my fault, I was in a hurry and mistimed the meal) however, it is definitely soft and chewy, and like others have said, is pretty versatile as far as toppings are concerned. Keep in mind, my bread was undercooked and still delicious, so give it a try! My boyfriend and I enjoyed it dipped in oil with herbs.

Mushroom and Swiss Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
My boyfriend and I really liked this. It sounds really simple, but the flavors are really good. i marinated the chicken for a couple of hours, then cooked it with the mushrooms in the oven. Really very good, simple and easy and yummy, especially if you like like mushroom swiss burgers and stuff.

Savory Crescent Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
It was quick and easy, the crescent dough was a little difficult at first, but after reducing the amount I put in each pocket, it was better. I did have some leftover mixture though, so I could probably have used a can and a half of dough. I may have had more chicken than called for though. (I used one big breast that I fried in a skillet) The flavor was ok, I added some seasoning to the chicken breast, cooking it with little pieces of broccoli, and sprinkling it with cheddar cheese before baking, but that didn't make a huge difference. I might try this with different fillings. Also, I slightly undercooked the dough, it was a little gooey inside, so watch that. it was good, just not fantastic with this particular filling. (Maybe it was the cream cheese?) Again, I may try it with something else, do like a chicken cordon bleu type thing. Oh and they didn't drip a bit, I put them on a cookie sheet without greasing it or anything and one of them had a big hole in the top and didn't leak, but still warm and moist inside, so it is worth a try, it might be to your preference!

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
This was very yummy. When I was making it, I kept thinking to myself: "what do they mean by creamy?" It's a really different texture, and it really is 'creamy' as weird as it sounds. I thought about it and then it hit me: it's the same texture as a rich pound cake! It's virtually banana pound cake. (but more banana-ey). The only thing I didnt like about it was that the brown sugar on the outside burned. It wasn't like a coffee cake where it's still sugary, I had to cut the crust completely off. However this isn't the first recipe I've had trouble with when it called for a sugared coating on bread, so it might be my oven.

Banana Bread IV

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I've been searching for the perfect banana bread...very flavorful, moist, banana-ey....and this is the best out of all the recipes I've tried. It's perfect. The only substitution I make is using yogurt instead of shortening. It's healthier...changes the texture to make it a little less crumbly and more chewy like bread, but in a good way. For variations try using cream cheese or sour cream or applesauce in place of oil or in this case shortening and if you wanna play around with the flavors try adding fresh/frozen fruit (strawberry banana bread is a good combination) or using peanut butter. This is my permanent base recipe for banana bread now and good by itself or with any of my tinkering when Im in the mood for something different! Happy baking! Yummy!! Ps: walnuts are sooo good in this. Makes about 24 muffins if any one is curious, although I guess it depends on your muffin size.

Amazing Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Very yummy!!! Had a little trouble with the Breading, but I think that's because I didn't crush the cheezits enough. We like it though. Chicken was juicy and flavorful. :)

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Thus was very, very garlicky, and vinegary. I don't have a problem with strong flavors and I could handle it, but it's really way too much garlic for one head of broccoli. I feel like I wasted some garlic. Also, even though I normally like these types of flavors I felt like something was missing. I did completely forget the Parmesan cheese, but I don't think that was it. It felt like all I could taste was garlic, and there weren't enough flavors playing around for me. However, this might be good if added to another dish....

Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I thought this was delicious it tasted almost exactly like the Carolina country marinade packet from McCormick except without the caraway seed. My boyfriend didn't like it as much as I did, but I love vinegary/mustardy tastes so I thought it was great. He said he wished I had marinated the broccoli in it, and used the Asian marinade I used for the broccoli on the pork chops. But like I said if you like the Carolina country marinade or Georgia mustard type barbecue sauce then this is right up your alley.

Peach Curry Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
My boyfriend and I really liked this...I initially thought the curry flavor was too strong but I added all the juice from a can of peaches plus half of the slices and some brown sugar and boiled it on the stove to thicken it up into a sauce and seasoned the prom chops with some salt and pepper and a pinch of Cajun seasoning while cooking, then poured the sauce on top. The sauce was really, really good that way. :)

Applesauce Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
To me, this tasted exactly like cinnamon applesauce with a little bit or ketchup mixed in. I'm not sure if its the amount of applesauce or what, but I didn't particularly like the flavor or the texture. However, after quite a bit of tinkering to make it taste more like barbeque sauce, it tasted ok on pork chops.

Pecan Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I personally thought this was absolutely delicious and needed no changes whatsoever. I used graham cracker crust because I personally like that better, but I'm sure the regular pie crust would be fine too. My boyfriend didn't like it though, and he LOVES cheesecake. He said the texture was weird for him. It was fluffier than cheesecake due to the whippsed cream and wasn't baked so it was just really light. The cream cheese flavor wasn't quite as concentrated either so if you are looking for a cheesecake, it is not quite there, however it is still rich and yummy especially if you like nuts and caramel. (think butter pecan ice cream in a cheesecake)

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
The perfect graham cracker crust. I didn't change anything and didn't bake it, just used it for a cheesecake. But it was sweet, crumbly, yet stuck together like it was supposed to...it made enough for one pie for me, so if you are making two pies, double it! Oh and I forgot, I didn't use the cinnamon, but the crust is really good when you throw some nuts into your food processor and use that in replacement for half of the graham cracker crumbs. =)

Pork Roast With The World's Best Pork Loin Rub

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Yummy! Sweet and Spicy and really good. I enjoyed it. Keep in mind that it makes a lot though. I had about the right amount of pork and I still had plenty left over! I tasted it before I put it on the meat and was pleasently surprised by the combination of flavors. Just right!

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I used this recipe as a base recipe, so I am reviewing it, even though I made some changes. I'm not going to go into all of the additions I made, (mostly cause I don't remember everything I added) but I do want to say this is a pretty good base recipe. I used Heinz chili sauce, which tasted like a slightly spicier version of ketchup and so with the grape jelly it tasted really ketchupy, so I would recommend adding some kind of spice to it, maybe smoke flavoring, and if you like your sauce sweeter, add more grape jelly, possibly some brown sugar. As for the meatballs, they were good, but had a strange texture to me, really mushy tasting, even though they were definitely cooked all the way through,. Not sure what the cause of the texture was or if they are supposed to be that way, but the flavor was pretty good.

New Wife Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Good, but you know, to me, it tasted like pretty basic tuna salad, not anything different from what I've tasted befofre. I always make tuna salad the same way, so it tastes much different from what I usually do (which is very basic) but it tastes similar to prepackaged tuna salad, only chunkier. Which is fine if that's what you're going for! Don't get me wrong, it's good and I enjoyed it, but I didn't think it tasted diffewrent from many other tuna salads.

Blackberry Yummies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
They tasted like blueberry muffins, just maybe a little more cakey, and more blackberry-y of course. They weren't bad, but they weren't anything super special either. I did like the punch of flavor the blackberries added, and I tried blackberries in my banana bread, which was very good!

Cucumbers with Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I thought they were pretty yummy, I liked the strong vinegary taste, but that's just me The only problem I had was the 'dressing' was really runny. it might have been that my measurements were off, but I really enjoyed the flavors, and ate the whole bowl, even though they WERE strong.

Chayote Squash Side Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
First time cooking this squash, so I am not sure how I should rate it. I did it according to the recipe, but the flavors just didn't really do it for me. My boyfriend didn't really eat his either. I'm not sure though if I cooked them right, because, as I said, I've never really made this squash before. They were pretty firm. I might experiment with the squash again but with different flavors.
