Harvard Beets

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
Yummy! This is exactly what I was looking for. I've always loved beets anyway, but these were just the right sweet/sour combination. My sauce didn't thicken either, a little more cornstarch would take care of that. I also used the little tiny whole beets instead of the slices and added about 1 Tbsp. of butter right before I put the beets in the sauce. They were so good, Thanks for this recipe!

Supreme Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2004
The only reason I gave 4 Stars instead of 5 is because of the appearance. They do not look very appetizing; perhaps under the broiler for browning for a couple of minutes would help. I can't tell that the ketchup added anything to the chops. Next time I will salt the chops too. I couldn't believe the taste. The chops were enhanced with the onion & brown sugar. These are excellent, and nothing could be easier. I will most definately make these again & again.

Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2004
This was some of the best chicken I've ever tasted, and I'm not big on chicken. I roasted the sesame seeds for 5 minutes at 400, then poured them out onto a paper plate immediately to cool. I agree with most that more flour & sesame seeds are needed to dredge the chicken in. I used sr flour and no salt & it was perfect. I also added a few good dollops of honey to the soy sauce. The sesame seeds made the wonderful flavor, it was so yummy. I'll make this many times. Thanks for posting this great dish.

Chocolate Cheesecake IV

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2004
My first attempt at a "baked cheesecake" of any kind. You absolutely must be a "choco-holic" to like this cake. A little too chocolately for most, I think. I wonder if, you cut back on the chocolate chips, would it still have the same consistency? The taste is more like fudge and overwhelms the cheesecake itself. 1 or 1 1/2" slices will be plenty for most; very rich, like the "fancy smancy" restaurants would serve at $7.50 a slice. I personally liked it very much. Very easy to make, but it will require more than just a pre-made crust; best if you make your own crust in a 10" round X 2" high baking dish, then you won't have to waste any.
