Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
My boyfriend said "wow, honey, I've never had sloppy joes with flavor before!" That speaks for itself! I added extra ketchup, BBQ sauce, horseradish mustard, a beef bouillon cube, 3 cloves minced garlic, and thickened with a little cornstarch. I left out bell pepper. Otherwise followed exactly as stated. Couldn't even tell it was 93/7 ground beef!

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Very authentic!! I did change a little though, yet it still gets a 5 because the recipe is still pretty much the same. I used strips of pork because thats how I grew up eating it. I sauteed the garlic (4 cloves) and some green onion. After removing garlic/onions from wok, I put fresh ground pepper on raw pork and cooked it, splashing some soy sauce on halfway through. I then removed the pork and cooked the veggies, adding the garlic and onions back to the pan and putting additional soy sauce on them. Then once cooked most of the way, I added the pork and noodles until heated all the way through. I have to say, a bit more flavorful than my dads....

Grilled Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Wow, I served with brown rice and lots of the juice/glaze drowning everything. Tastes just like dad's!! I am used to adobo made in a big stock pot and simmered for hours, so this was a nice change but still had authentic flavor. It didn't turn glaze-like (more of just an adobo juice), but thats probably due to the fact I used less honey. I made the marinade and put the chicken in a bag with it and froze it until ready to use. Yesterday i put it in the fridge to defrost and further marinate the flavor. FABULOUS!! And for those who say it is too salty, it is not at all. I used reduced sodium soy sauce after reading the reviews, but ended up putting La Choy full sodium soy on afterward because it was lacking something. Salt. It's just how the flavors are supposed to be. That taught me not to mess with perfection ;)

Banana Berry Smoothie II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Its really good, but I changed a few things so thats why it got 4 stars. I added many more strawberries, about 2 tsp splenda (in addition to honey), a dash of vanilla, and about 5 ice cubes. I also used 4 oz. strawberry-vanilla yogurt. My 4-yr-old thought it was a strawberry banana milkshake and actually ate breakfast!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
I should have flattened them out more before baking. Thought a press of the palm would be enough but you guys aint kiddin when you say they don't flatten/spread during baking! Even substituting splenda for the white sugar, using one stick of margarine, and using medium eggs, I had zero problems with density and volume. So its a good cookie for useing substitutes. I also made a glaze and put on top, and added mini choco chips with pb chips and vanilla sugar free pudding mix. I just think next time I'd bake them longer (although the bottoms were getting pretty brown) or flatten them more.
