Delicious Tangy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This a very good, simple marinade that takes about a minute to put together. It enhances the flavor of the pork chop without covering it. As a matter of fact, next time we use this recipe I think I'll cut slits in the pork to allow the marinade to penetrate the meat even more, then I'll wrap the chops in foil to cook with a bit of the marinade.

Mushroom Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
OMG - AMAZING RICE! I was looking for a recipe to enhance a rice blend that was very blah on its own - and I definitely found it! My boyfriend and I couldn't stop eating it! I omitted the green peppers as a matter of personal preference and used fresh mushrooms.

Refreshing Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
This was tasty but I tweeked it a bit for our tastes. First I used 1 TBSP light mayo and 1 TBSP sour cream - the sour cream definitely gave it a good flavor that would have been lacking with only mayo. I also added in dill and a bit of celery seed. Also, next time I will not use any salt. I didn't think it needed any and felt the salt overpowered the other flavors.

Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
These were good and juicy. Next time, however, I think I'll omit the olives and add greek seasoning.

Tomato 'n' Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
This was okay. But it wasn't so good that I won't look for another, better recipe. My 2 yo wouldn't touch it, but my husband thought it was great. I was in the middle.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
With embellishments such as spinach and mushrooms, and definitely using half sour cream, this was a 5 star recipe. Next time I think I'll try substituting plain yogurt instead of sour cream even!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I didn't realize until I had begun making this that the recipe was actually somewhat of an "upside down" cobbler, but I was committed to doing something with some of the fresh Georgia peaches I had, so I went ahead. Overall I'm much more a fan of fruit crisps (or crumbles), but my boyfriend is a cobbler fan, so to keep the peace... I switch off. ;) However, to me cobbler is more of a pie like topping on fruit. This cake-like, bake through the fruit dessert was tasty, but I think there are much better recipes out there. I baked this for 70 minutes and still thought it was too doughy!

Bacon Ranch Pea Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This didn't quite have the taste of my grandma's. She used cheese chunks and boiled eggs and mixed with mayo. I think I will stick with her recipe.

Parmesan Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This was great! I normally do not bread anything, but this recipe seemed light enough and I was in the mood for something different. The fish was very moist and the "breading" wasn't heavy at all. My husband and 2 yo gobbled it up. Hubby couldn't keep his hands off the left overs either! I put a little mango salsa on mine - just a personal touch. But it didn't need any additional flavor (though I used seasoned bread crumbs). Overall - definitely a keeper.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
This was yummy, but as it's written it's only a 4 star recipe. The first batch I made I followed the directions and ingredients exactly. It turned out grainy and had a weird aftertaste. I frequently get coffee at a place in town that is also a fantastic fudge shop, so I asked the local fudge maestra about it. After discussing a few things with her I altered the recipe for the 2nd batch I made a few days later and it was great! I made the following changes - the brown sugar was the reason for the aftertaste so I omitted it completely the second time. I also found that 7 minutes wasn't near enough to adequately dissolve all that sugar so I boiled for 10 minutes and (at the suggestion of the local expert) kept stirring during the boiling phase. The 2nd batch turned out MMMMMMMMelt-in-your-MMMMOUTH DELISH! Definitely a 5 star recipe with the changes.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Made this yesterday and took Scout99's advice and layered the dip and baked it. I actually didn't like it that way. The cheese on top cooked up hard and the layers didn't mix well. I used diced chicken from the store as I was in a hurry but dicing the chicken didn't make it it very dip-like. Next time I will boil my chicken, then shred it and mix the layers before baking it. Update: Made this a 2nd time, mixing all the ingredients together using 2 c shredded rotissierie chicken, 1/2 c blue cheese, 1/2 c ranch and baked for 20 min at 350 degrees. Here's my assessment: the mixing is good, as is using the shredded chicken. Didn't like the bleu cheese and the whole thing is just too creamy. I think I'd use less cream cheese next time, but I'm also still searching for the right thing to eat with this dip. Celery is good, crackers and bread are too heavy, but it's just not right. Also, 3/4 c hot sauce is too much. 1/2 cup would do just fine.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was great dip! Made this for a New Years football watching party and decided to add a layer of 1lb ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning between the sour cream/cream cheese and the lettuce. It was DELISH! The hostess had been making short ribs, which didn't turn out very well. No one even noticed the lack ribs because this was such a meaty, wonderful, filling dip. Even the 6 yo loved it!

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
This is a good recipe if you like spicy soup. However, it was too spicy for my 2 yo to even want any as a sauce for her gnocchi. My boyfriend and I both like spice and flavor but we found the cayenne to be too overpowering and not needed with the other spices. To make it more nutritious and sweeter for my daughter I peeled and diced an apple and included it during the initial "browning" phase. I served this with gnocchi to make it a heartier meal and added a dollop of sour cream. But again, my bf and I found ourselves adding more sour cream to tone down the cayenne. I also discovered as I was preparing to puree the soup that our blender had stopped working so I used a hand mixer instead. CAUTION - only do this if you're preparing the soup in a deep pan!

Parmesan Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
We did this recipe on the grill (wrapped in foil) as we were grilling steaks. I think my husband left them on a bit too long and the asparagus were a bit too soggy. But overall, a great taste. Just watch the temp and cook time if you grill.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
So simple and so delicious. I didn't use the butter and and couldn't tell it was missing at all.
