Grilled Tri-Tip with Oregon Herb Rub

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
There was an herb in here I REALLY didn't like. Can't figure out what it was. Will not remake.

Cedar Planked Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
Loved it! I make it when we want to have high restaurant quality meals (like today...Christmas!). I've used alder planks as well as cedar planks (found at my local natural food stores near meat counter). I also used apple cider vinegar in place of rice vinegar since I didn't have any rice vinegar. It's a winner every single time (even with my small kiddos).

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
My husband loves this. He says it tastes like the apple butter his grandmother made him. It will be a regular in our home.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Really good. The preschoolers I made them for didn't go nuts for them but that's ok. I also tried to make them without the topping. It's good without but the topping is what makes them super.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
My husband liked it. Used a good beer... Full Sail Amber Ale. I think the beer muted all the yummy flavors. I was disappointed. Will have to freeze or give away most of the soup.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Make Gma Ople pie with it. Easy enough. Made it the night before and had to add cold water the next day. Tasted good. I'm not an expert or a critic when it comes to crust, though.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
My picky brother in law liked it. I thought it was fine. Nothing too wow about it. Solid dip.

Alfajores Argentinean Style

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
I am Bolivian so we make our own version of alfafores. I followed this recipe exactly except for the rum. Made it for a preschool/culture day. The kids gobbled it. My family loved it. Doubled the recipe. Only lasted a day. Only downside is that they took forever (a couple hours)! Will try rolling/cutting on parchment paper next time and cooking it right on there so I don't have to transfer!

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
I've made potatoes forever. Same ingredients. This time they were the right time of cooking/ingredient amounts. The results....perfect. Even according to my picky sister! Thank you thank you!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Super good. Surprised it didn't rise more but then the rolls rose while baking so the wait times weren't critical. It's become a regular request from my entire extended and immediate family to bake. Love it!

Beautiful Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Great presentation. I wasn't crazy about the flavor myself. My guests raved and took home the recipe, so I can't complain that much!

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
I followed this exactly and really didn't like it at all. The sauce was ok but that was the only positive part. I did serve it alone. Maybe some rice would have helped. I will not be repeating this recipe.

BBQ Glazed Homemade Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
I didn't realize it until I started reading the recipe closely but I've been making this recipe for years! It has been circulating in my family and is IDENTICAL except for 3 things. 1) substitute half of the oatmeal for cracker crumbs (I smash up saltines). Helps with the stickiness and gives it a nice texture. 2)I almost always uses Bullseye. Very yummy and doesn't have high fructose corn syrup. Easier too, of course! 3) My family has make ahead directions (something I wish EVERY recipe had!!)! I often double the recipe and freeze them. I roll them into large balls and put them on a dinner plate that has wax paper on it. I let them freeze for about 45 minutes and then put them in a ziploc freezer bag and add another batch to freeze. If you don't freeze long enough they mush together in the bag. If you freeze too long they freeze onto the wax paper and plate and they're a huge pain to peel off. When you need them plop them right onto a pyrex dish with wax paper underneath, coat with lots of bbq sauce and cook for 70 or so minutes at 350....maybe longer depending on the size of the meatballs. Sooo easy!! I have a batch sitting in my freezer right now in case of emergency!

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
Loved it! Kids and hubby ate it (5 year old was a bit skeptical of the ginger and oj flavor with the sweetness but eventually gave in). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the huge oily mess it made on my stovetop and counters. Probably not the healthiest meal even though I cooked it in olive oil.
