BBQ Chicken Crescents

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I used big and flaky crescent dough and it was a little too sweet. Pretty quick to make but I dont think I will make it again.

Crescent Pizza Pockets

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
Sooooo fast to make, and the kids will love it. It is definitely the type of meal you need on one of those days you forget to cook and then realize its an hour until bedtime. I would suggest salting the top of the pocket before baking, and don't be stingy on the cheese.

Teri Tips

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
OK OK So I didn't cut it up... I just felt terrible doing that to such an amazing cut of meat. It was wonderful just grilled to medium rare after marinating just like suggested. I didn't think the sauce was that amazing, but overall a very successful dish... thanks so much for using real ingredients!!!

Apple Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
I made it to a "T" and it was very runny :( The juices came out while baking and dripped all over the oven. Next time I will use a little more flour, but overall it was very good flavor. I used the Simple Flaky Pie Crust from this site... just wonderful.

Mango Chicken with Greens

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
This was very sweet, the sauce has the consistency of an applesauce and it has pretty good flavor, I just don't know how much it's worth the work. I did it without the greens or raisins and used regular strips instead of drumsticks.

Colonel Jackson's Smothered Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
As an experienced cook, I am assuming the reason you make a roux is to slowly introduce the liquid so it thickens (and reduces). That way, the vinegar cooks out. I did it exactly the same except for I only cut the chicken into 4. And I didn't have red pepper flakes :(. Thanks so much and we will definitely make again

Avocado Ice Cream (dairy-free)

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
To be fair, I have never had avocado ice cream... if I loved avocado ice cream this would have gotten all 5 stars. I decided to try it out of curiosity and because I love avocado. It was similar to green tea ice cream in the way that it is not very heavy and borders on savory. VERY VERY interesting.

Steamed Cod on the Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
DELICIOUS! Here in Texas it's a little hard to find walleye so I used cod since it is nice and flaky too. I would suggest serving it with fresh lemon at the end as well, since most of the lemon flavor cooks away and it's soooo yummy. Also, when opening the pouches, make sure you have them over the plate so the juices don't drip everywhere (and because you don't want to waste them).

Ensalada Roja con Pollo (Red Salad with Chicken)

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
I was looking all over the web for this recipe since I grew up in Venezuela... I finally found it here! The funny thing is, I have an account here and didn't come up when I looked up beets and hard-boiled eggs. :( Oh well, I's so happy you have it! It tastes just like what I grew up with, I only omitted the pickles and pickle juice and added a little vinegar instead. I had never heard of pickles until I came here so I am SURE my mom didn't used to put them in there. Thanks so much!!! (PS I still remember my kindergarten class making me bring 2 hard-boiled eggs so we could make this together

Oklahoma Brisket

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Absolutely perfect. This is our 4th or 5th attempt at making a brisket... we did cook it for 3 hours at 250, then an extra hour at 300. The best brisket I have ever had. Thanks so much for sharing!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
it was pretty time-consuming and I really didnt think it was worth the effort put in. I will, however, say that I was very happy to find a recipe that my baby could enjoy for her first birthday and that was a lot healthier than those made with shortening or with butter. I did use powdered sugar, so I would suggest adding more sugar if you are replacing with powdered. Thanks for sharing it!

Apricot Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
WEll, let me just preface by saying that we love sweet and savory combinations and my husband added a bit more brown sugar than suggested, but I still found it way too sweet. It reminded me a lot of chinese style sesame chicken, so next time I think I will just add a bit more vinegar and use balsamic, and turn it into a healthy version of the chinese favorite

Apricot-Mustard Grilled Pork Tenderloin

We will definitely be making this again. We even skipped the salt and pepper.

Asparagus Chicken Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I think this recipe was very good but I honestly don't think I will be making it again. It seemed very heavy and we tend to eat a lot lighter... good flavors but one crepe per person with a salad on the side will be plenty

I dont know what I did wrong but these came out terrible. They didnt fluff or get brown, just kind of flattened and got hard.
