Wine and Dijon Marinated Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I rarely review recipes, since I so often find myself having to fine tune them to my liking. But this was the best tenderloin recipe I've ever made! I agree with some of the comments that it was a little salty, but I love salt, so it was just perfect for us. The chunky "gravy" resulting from the cooked out marinade was fabulous on potatoes as well!

Grill Dough

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Finally, a perfect pizza dough! This has a little less moisture than most other recipes, which I found made for the perfect combination of crunchy exterior and soft, chewy interior. Much more like a Pizzeria Bianco crust than anything else I've tried to replicate. I proofed the yeast with the sugar, rather than adding the sugar to the flour mixture, but aside from that minor adjustment this recipe turned out great.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Very tasty frosting, though I wouldn't exactly call it "sturdy" (hence the 4, not 5, stars). A little goes a long way. I doubled the recipe for the first two dozen of a three dozen cupcake project and ended up with enough frosting for all three dozen plus a little left over--an easy excuse to make another small cake. All the kids (and grownups!) loved the almond flavor. I'll definitely make this again, though I think I might add a little more cream cheese, a little less cream, or some powdered sugar to thicken it up a bit.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
I wish I had listened to my gut instinct and used a shoulder or butt roast instead of a tenderloin, but I figured I would trust the recipe and give it a try. Tenderloin is not suitable for making pulled pork! I ended up having to hand pull it when the meat was done cooking, and the white meat was way too tough. I wish I could give it more stars, but although the root beer infusion was an interesting taste, it was still pretty bland.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I hate giving this such a poor review, and figure my problems MUST be user error. But I followed this recipe to a "T" and ended up with a pizza with burnt toppings while the crust was still uncooked on the topping side. Very frustrating. I feel like perhaps the dough needs to be pre-cooked before adding toppings and hope that fixes things next time.
