Ranch-Style Thighs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Great recipe!! I did everything exactly as is but at the cornmeal as I didn't have any and it turned out delicious! I did it with the skin on this time around, but next time i'll prepare it with the skin off since most of the yummy crunchiness stuck on the skin. Chicken came out moist and flavorful.

Pear Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Great recipe! I tried this out on Family Night and everyone loved it! My only suggestion is to use ripe soft pears. I can't imagine this tasting as great as it did with the crunchier pears. I also added a dash of cinnamon to spice it up a bit. The cooking time was a bit longer than an hour, but all in all, a great recipe that takes some time to prepare but so worth it!

Grilled Apple and Swiss Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Great combination of flavors. The tanginess of the Granny Smith apple magically disappears and becomes "one" with the other flavors. Can't describe it really, but it really is delicious and I agree with the contributer of the recipe, you have to do this on wheat bread. Tastes so much better!

Spicy Chinese Barbeque Riblets

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
OMG, this is so tasty and so easy to prepare! This is my first time preparing ribs of any sort and they came out tender, juicy and super flavorful with the sauce. I made everything exactly as indicated with the only change being that I reduced the wine by a bit only because it would make the sauce too watery. Other than that, followed the recipe and the results were great.

Apple Ham Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
So delicious! I didn't add the ham, but the combination of the cheese/apples on a grilled sandwich..yummy! Filling all on it's own or maybe a cup of soup for a heartier dinner.

Baked Zucchini Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I've prepared this recipe countless times and every time i'm amazed at how delicious it is! It comes out perfect, even when I don't add in all the herbs/seasonings it calls for.

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I tried this out on our monthly Family Night and everyone loved it! I took the suggestions of others and baked the "crust" for 10 minutes or more, and once it had firmed up a bit, took it out of the oven and after it had cooled off (about 5 minutes) I brushed egg on top to create a barrier between the crust and the peaches. I put it back in the oven for another five minutes and took it out again and followed the rest of the recipe as indicated. Once it was done, I let it cool off and refrigerated it overnight with awesome results. The crust was tasty, not too sweet, and the combination of peaches with the cream cheese was a big hit. A bit time consuming but the results are worth it.

Tequila Lime Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I think the measurements are off - 1/4 cup of salt is way too much. This already has lime & vinegar so I reduced the salt to 1 teaspoon and reduced the oil to just 2 tablespoons. With those modifications, I was still left with lots of marinade left over, which I simply cooked and poured over some white rice. Very tasty!!

Cream of Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Delicious! I did doctor it up a bit though by combining several recipes from this site. I used fresh basil, used fresh tomatoes (boiled with onion, garlic, oregano) and used cream cheese instead of milk to make the soup creamier. The gorgonzola complimented the flavors wonderfully and my hubby who normally does not like gorgonzola loved this soup!

Crispy Cheese Twists

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Delicious! I modified it using ingredients on hand like parmesan cheese and a spice blend. Didn't use egg as suggested and it still came out great! Crispy, cheesy...perfect for our family gathering. Thank you!

Beer-Boiled Shrimp

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
My hubby prepared this for our monthly Family Night dinner and it was a hit! He prepared it exactly as written, used cheap beer and let it sit for a while longer than indicated. The shrimp were tender - mind you we used frozen shrimp - juicy and oh so perfect! Don't let the nutrition facts scare you, the buttery sauce is well worth it. My only suggestion next time would be to try adding some garlic and a little bit more salt to the dish. Other than that, excellent dish and super duper easy to prepare!

Clemons Family Bean Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
What a great recipe! I followed the suggestion of another user and used chorizo - mexican sausage - instead of the ground beef and wow! This a great "guy" dip. Only thing is that the dip does get a little dry after it cools down, but other than that hubby and pals rated it a 5 star winning recipe.

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
Great base recipe! Followed the recipe exactly and it made six beautiful cheesecake cupcakes. The consistency was creamy and sweet. The only thing I would change is to reduce or eliminate the lemon zest and/or juice. It came out too tangy. Other than that, great base recipe that you can change to suit your tastes!

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Great recipe! I loved the taste/smell of the fresh ginger with the peanut butter. I used whole wheat noodles and although I didn't have any green onions on hand the white onions worked just fine. I added some chopped serrano peppers for heat (we like it hot!) and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. The reason it it did not get five stars is that the sauce was thick and hard to work with when adding the noodles. I had to add more water to it so that it could dilute the sauce and cover the noodles. Other than that, the outcome was very impressive.

Creamy PHILLY Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
Delish! The only change I made was to not use the herb cream cheese, instead I added my own herbs including garlic powder and a bit of celery salt. Other than that, I followed the directions exactly and the results were a cream, cheesy chicken mixture with lots of flavor inside a flaky, buttery crust. Yummo! BTW, I used Pillsbury Pie crusts.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Amazing! I used garlic salt and olive oil, roasted them in our countertop oven and voila! When I took them out, I sprinkled a bit of Parmesan Cheese. The olive oil helped the cheese stick to the sprouts creating this delicious, decadent coating on them. That complemented with the crunchiness and sweetness of the sprouts made for an awesome dish. I had it twice this week and just thinking about it them is making me hungry for more!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Delicious! The only thing I changed was that I added a crumb mixture to the top (sugar, cinnamon, flour, butter) but overall great recipe.

Garden Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Great base recipe! I used what veggies I had in the fridge and it turned out tasty. Even my husband who doesn't like vegetables at all approved of this soup. My only change was to sautee three cloves of garlic along with the onions and celery. Other than that....yummy!

Impossible Coconut Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
The consistency and the look of the pie was great - even I was impressed at how pretty it looked! But the taste was so-so, maybe it was the ingredients I used but it tasted kinda of rubbery and the hubby commented on the bitter aftertaste. I'll keep toying with the ingredients and hopefully will get something better.
