Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
I tried to make this cake twice. The first time it never baked even after 90 minuted it was still gooey. I thought it was because I used cake flour because I was out of regular. The next time, it was still too raw after 90 minutes of baking with regular flour, although not as gooey. What a waste of ingredients.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
This was just OK. I went the extra step and grilled the veggies in a grill basket instead of baking. That was the best part. Definitely don't skip the balsamic. Used lemon thyme in addition to the zest. Would make my own version again, but not this one as written.

Tropical Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2013
This would have been 5 stars except for the fact that I had to make a change to the recipe. I cut the sugar in half, but it was still too sweet. With all the fruit, even though I used unsweetened pineapple and applesauce, there is no need to add more sugar. I tasted it partway through and stopped after adding half the amount called for. Next time I will omit the sugar, and then it will be 5 stars!

Amazing Southwest Cilantro Lime Mango Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
I used tortillas instead of bread, warmed on the grill. I also had read that peaches are a good substitute for mangoes, and as they are in season I used them instead and grilled them for a few minutes along side the vegetables to bring out the sweetness...really similar to a ripe mango. I have a salsa recipe which has the exact ingredients as this recipe that I had canned last summer, and used that, so it really cut the prep time. If you're going to use tortillas I would suggest 50% more chicken as there was only enough for 4 with 1 pound.

Gramma Bertha's Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
Not sweet enough for a cake, not banana bread. Oddly in between. Did not like this one.

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
This was just ok...everyone doused it with barbecue sauce, even after marinating for several hours. Not strong enough flavors, just ok. If you plan on dousing your chicken in barbecue sauce anyway this recipe would add a bit more flavor. Otherwise keep looking.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
This was delicious! I absolutely thought I was back by the beach. Didn't change a thing. So easy, and only marinated about 45 minutes while I got everything else ready. A keeper!

Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
This was OK...I would probably have liked it better if I had not added the vanilla and pudding to the Cool Whip as other reviewers suggested. That added a real artificial taste to it. Next time I will stick with the recipe...I have made this before as written and the Cool Whip alone is just OK on top, which is why I opted for the moderations this time. Either way it's just a 3 star recipe.

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
This was just a weird cake. A little dense, but not bad. WAY too salty, which is why I think some people thought it tasted like cornbread. More like a cross between sweet cornbread and angel food cake. I did use the extra half cup of milk, and folded in the egg whites. The taste was just off. Maybe try decreasing the salt and for Pete's sake use unsalted butter!

Jamaican Jerked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
With the combination of spices, this should have been a good recipe...but it wasn't. Not sure why it failed, but the flavor just wasn't right. Won't be making this one again.

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2013
I saw the shortening in the recipe and hesitated, but thought hey! This is something different, might be a good change. Wrong! It had an off flavor. I suppose if you substituted butter for the shortening it would be better, but...then it would be more like a pound cake. At least the texture was fluffy. Out of my recipe box you go!

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
Odd combination of heat and lack of seasoning. Everyone ate it but didn't necessarily enjoy it. Will look elsewhere for a good recipe with coconut milk!

Grilled Five Spice Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
This was pretty good. The sweetness of the five spice was awesome at first, but by the time I got half way through my chicken piece it was tiresome.

Cherry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2013
Hideous cake recipe! Those that rate it 4-5 stars have all changed it to make it edible. Bland! And I have discovered that cinnamon and cherries do not go well together!

Juicy Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2013
Don't know why I rated it so high the first time. Made it again and it was awful! Too sweet and goes against the flavor of the meat. Avoid!

Noodles Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2013
Pretty good, but after tasting it I decided it needed garlic! So I quickly sauteed a couple cloves and added them in, totally fixed it. Thanks!

Chef John's Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I guess it was the buttermilk that took all the wonderful chicken flavor out of the meat; but then, there was the bland seasoning. Seriously lacked salt. I followed the frying instructions to the letter, even buying the more expensice peanut oil...only, not everyone must have a ginormous pot the Chef John must have used...that, or he had an itty bitty squab store bought chicken. I could fit all but 4 pieces of the chicken in the cast iron enameled dutch oven like he suggested using. And, with crowding all the chicken in at once, the oil temp plummeted to 250 and never got to 305-310 as he suggested. The result was more oil in the crust than I would have preferred.

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
as written, this recipe is not good. Even the oven cooking time is off. And what is the point of refrigerating the dough for 3 hours??! There are better recipes for this traditional cookie, this is not it.
