Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
These were not bad straight out of the oven, but quickly went stale. I prefer a really soft, tender and 'chewy' cinnamon roll, one that still tastes fresh half a day later. These were more biscuit like overall. In addition, I found the topping to be too heavy on the sugar. Rather than staying syrupy and clinging to the rolls, it all hardened onto the bottom of the pan.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I had a few issues with this recipe. I scaled it down to serve 4 as I wasn't about to take a gamble with 3 pounds of turkey, before testing the results out. Turns out this is one of those recipes that doesn't scale down successfully. Now calling for 5/8th of an egg white, I just put one whole egg in. The rest wasn't too hard to deal with, but I just found the result was dry and rather flavorless burgers. I see that many rave reviewers added a variety of enhancements. Not sure just what this needs, but I wouldn't make it again as written.

Best Burger Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I was really expecting to like this based on the mostly rave reviews, but I really didn't care for the flavor of it, myself. The mustard was too strong.

Cream Filled Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
The cupcake part of this recipe is easy and delicious. I have used it even when I need a basic chocolate cupcake without the cream filling. The cream filling is good as well, but I find it's too thick to fill the cupcakes as directed so I cut a section out of the center and fill that way. A chocolate glaze (I like 'Satiny Chocolate Glaze' from this site) is the best way to top them, as they always seem to disappear fast that way. If frosted, they are almost too sweet and aren't as popular. Great recipe and one I keep going back to. Thanks!

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
These were rich, soft and fluffy with wonderful waffle flavor. The 4 stars is for the complete lack of cinnamon flavor. Increase it substantially if you desire cinnamon waffles. Otherwise, terrific recipe and one that's a keeper. Make sure you use actual buttermilk and not the home- made replacement, or you won't achieve the best results.

Simple Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
I give this 4 stars as, minus the mayo/cucumber sauce, it's rather ordinary and the recipe, in my opinion, is way too light on the delicious sauce. I would definitely make them again but increase the mayonnaise mixture by double and really slather it on. I made another wrap for lunch the next day with the bit of leftover chicken there was, added more of the sauce, and that one was knockout delicious. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper.

Cream Cheese Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I take issue with this recipe calling for fresh OR frozen blueberries without specifying the need to increase the cornstarch accordingly if using frozen. An inexperienced cook would have a bit of a flop with this recipe as such. Otherwise, this is a simple and refreshing dessert. Perfect for a light, informal end to any meal. I chose to make a graham cracker crust over a pastry one to keep this a no bake dessert and for the sake of simplicity. Very nice!

Orange Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This would be a 5 star recipe but for the fact that the orange flavor is almost nonexistent. I made it a second time and added a pureed whole large orange, which added zest and also the juice the recipe calls for. It gave fantastic orange flavor to this otherwise lovely banana bread recipe.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very good. It's amazing how delicious the most basic of recipes can be. This one yielded flavorful, very moist chicken breasts. I wasn't sure about the basil at first but it was really what made this recipe. There was only one small hiccup ~ the olive oil and garlic mixture was not even sufficient to coat the 4 chicken breasts I was using. Otherwise, follow this recipe to the letter and you can't go wrong.

Pumpkin Wheat Honey Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
I love a tender, moist and substantial whole grain muffin recipe and this one fits that description. Very flavorful as well. I added a 1/2 tsp ginger for a pumpkin ginger flavor, as well as chopped candied ginger in place of the raisins. Took them over the top, for me. Everyone at my house loved these muffins, and I'm happy to have another to add to our favorites file. Thank you!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Outstanding glaze. Perfect as is, it dries firm but stays just a bit soft, is absolutely glossy and oh so rich. Can't wait to use this recipe again.

Don't Want to Cook Monday Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This does live up to it's promise of being a nice break from spicy. However, lack of spicy doesn't have to equal boring, which I found this suffered from a bit. I would really recommend increasing the sauce and sprinkling some sharp cheese on top before baking.

Herbed Salt

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
What a great idea! I never would have thought of this myself. I had some excess lime zest to use up so I tried that. It's delicious. Can't wait to get creative with it. Thanks for the idea, ibbz.

Tasty Salad Seasoning

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Very tasty and very versatile. I've sprinkled it in salad with a simple oil and vinegar dressing, on top of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers as well as steamed fresh veggies. The possibilities are endless with this seasoning blend. Thank you for the recipe!

Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
This blend reminds me very much of Lawry's seasoning salt without the salt. So far, I've used it to spice up home baked french fries which were really good with it. Thanks for the recipe.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Cup Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I found this recipe when doing an ingredient search to find a way to use up some of the frozen rhubarb taking up space in my freezer. It was perfect ~ a quick, simple and light dessert. It did not make 7 servings for me ~ I'm not sure if the frozen fruit made a difference or not, but it yielded only 4 (6 oz) servings. Very refreshing, with a nice sweet/tart contrast.

Mother's Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Good, homey comfort food. A great use for leftover ham. Everyone loved this casserole. Beware that it makes considerably more than 4 servings, unless you are feeding teenage boys and Dads. I'd say more like 8 servings.

'Out of Salad Dressing' Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This was fairly tart made as written. I would recommend juicing half the amount of lemon and adding it to taste. As the size of a lemon can vary widely, the recipe might have been better served written with a volume amount rather than the vague "1.5 lemons". I also did not need to add any milk as it was quite runny to begin with. I suspected it would be quite salty with the garlic salt called for, so I went with a sodium free garlic herb seasoning blend instead which turned out to be a good call.

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Fantastic! I love the sauce for this recipe and would even use it any time I need a quick bbq sauce. It's tangy and just a bit sweet and very zesty. I added a bit of cornstarch to the sauce just before serving in order to thicken it up a bit more, but otherwise changed nothing. We had it over brown rice, but it would be good topping for a baked potato as well. This is a versatile recipe that I know I'll be making again some time. Thank you.
