Dill Wrapped Cream Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
it tasted okay but not worth the work... some appetizers I found took too long and people didn't like as much

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I never knew a dip could be this great!!! I used organic peeled garlic that is less spicy than fresh and it was absolutely amazing!

Wings with Mint Leaves and Honey

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
YUM YUM YUM. I just cooked the wings and dripped honey over them after they were done and put a fresh mint leaf on top. It was absolutely wonderful...

Snakes in a Blanket

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I had a lot to make so I just rolled these like sushi rolls cut in smaller pieces and baked like that. They came out beautiful but not enough flavor. O think they needed a nice dipping sauce to go along. THE KIDS loved them, and that's always good.

Stuffed Mushrooms III

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Everyone loved them, but me. I think they needed a crunch, maybe some chopped walnuts or something like that. Flavors were all good, it was just the texture that had no contrast.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Modern twist to an italian classic... I used cherry vine tomatoes, whole, and pearly mozzarella, also whole. I ordered them neatly on plate then drizzled olive oil over. I think if you have great ingredients you don't need any of the extra stuff...

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I think it was a good starter recipe... i tripled the sauce like most people suggested and it just tasted like a soy sauce mess! I think it would have helped if the chicken were coated in egg first, then flour, because mine didn't taste like a batter (which is part of what I love about sesame chicken). I did love that it called for some spice in the flour because it gave it a great kick. I would recommend using the amount of sauce shown and maybe adding some brown sugar or maple syrup if you like it sweet and sticky. My husband love it either way.

Best White Icing Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I have to agree with the name. I used it as a crumb layer before fondant and dyed it pink to match. It was perfect!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Pork Loin Stuffed with Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
I actually changed the sauce a little bit and increased the orange juice and added maple syrup... I seared the pork before putting it in the oven, poured the sauce over it, then covered it and baked at 350 for 30 minutes. It was a little dry so make sure you check every few minutes because it will dry up quickly. I served it with orange and saffron infused rice. yum yum

Honey Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
I had never heard of dipping the chicken in honey before the flour... this was amazing! I will definitely be making this again. I did put the honey in a bowl and heated it up for about 10 seconds so it would be more liquid and it worked great. It tastes just like Tyson's Honey Battered Chicken. And it's homemade. Absolutely perfect... oh and just as a tip, Tyson pre-cooks this and then freezes. We may want to try that, so quick food later in the week.

Mango Chutney Cheese Ball

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
I feel like the bacon taste was barely there. I added the whole rest of the package and it didn't seem to make much of a difference. I didn't have the budget for mango chutney, so I chopped and mashed some mango and piled it on top like the main picture and it looked just great!

Sweet and Sour Chicken III

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
my husband said its "the best chinese food ever!" and he hates chinese food. I had to add a ton of brown sugar to the original recipe because my husband forgot to get the 20 oz like people had recommended. I think it would have made it much better. oh and I floured the chicken and fried it... then let the oil dry out of it before covering it with the sauce. and I put some cornstarch on the rice to make instant rice, sticky rice. it was great, but read the other reader's recommendations

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
sooooooo yummy. I usually just use garlic powder and omit the cheese to make it a little healthier... today I tried it with some orange juice and green onions and broiled for the last 5 min. DELICIOUS!

Aji de Gallina

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
I used to have a maid that made the best Aji de Gallina EVER! and i've been looking for a recipe that was similar this is the closest I have found. It does take a lot of time but it is soooo yummy. I know she used to put OCOPE in it instead of turmeric but I wasn't able to find either. :( I would put a little less cheese and maybe a little more chicken stock to make it more like the one I used to have but it was very yummy just make sure you have time to put into it!

Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
I just wanted to note that my husband snuck into my account and looked up this recipe and made it for dinner (I am in the early stages of labor). I only realized it because of the recently viewed recipes button.

Amy's Sensational Summer Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
AMAZING salad!! I didn't have italian dressing so I just grilled the chicken with garlic powder. I loved it and so did everyone else in our family... and they're "ranch dressing" people. Thanks so much!

Herbed Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
SOOOOO yummy! I made this for my husband today because he has a cold. I followed it exactly and at the end I added some bacon and a dash of hot sauce (because it helps with the cold). It was absolutely wonderful. It was never clumpy! I will use this technique for many other soups, super simpe adn went off without a glitch!! Thanks so much
