Best Burger Sauce

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
So so so so good. Everything everyone else said and more. Totally agree 100% with naples32104....tastes -like- McDonalds but *better* (not as sweet, like others have said). Also didn't have dried mixed garlic so just used shy of the same amount garlic powder. Will let it sit longer next time.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Absolutely delicious and moist as promised. I thought the sour cream would be more noticeable but it wasn't (maybe because I used lite sour cream?). With very ripe bananas, only half a cup of sugar was more than enough. I forgot to spray the pan but the bread came right off the parchment paper without any issues. Even the husband liked it a lot and he doesn't like baked goods!

Coffee Liqueur I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
The flavor is fantastic when compared to a side by side comparison with the off-the-shelf stuff (it tasted so syrupy, I guess I've ever had it straight before). The coffee has such a distinct flavor and rich, deep aftertast. The only thing was I thought it was soooooooo sweet and will decrease the simple sugar recipe to 1:1 next time. Used old screw top wine bottles and a cheap glass bottle from Ikea with a plastic cork, air tight bottle. My white Russian ePassport caramel colored, almost like a well made chocolate milk. I wish more people liked coffee flavored stuff so I could share! I honestly don't know how I can go back.

Creamy Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
I was really skeptical about this - might be 'too creamy', chicken might be 'too weird' or 'too dry' but it was really awesome. I did put some Italian seasoning in there but at the end either don't like the one I have or maybe don't think it was needed at all. I also used the ready-bake noodles, so thank you to the reviewer who posted to make sure it was covered while cooking to make sure the noodles cooked all the way. I've heard the secret to poached chicken - to maintain moistness - is to make sure the chicken cools completely in the water before removing to shred. After baking, this was totally delicious and moist - the chicken comes out soft and full of flavor. I didn't miss the ricotta or anything - this version stands alone perfectly. Really enjoyed it!

Leftover Turkey Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This is one of the best ways to have Thanksgiving in July or to use up all those Thanksgiving leftovers. The next time we will make homemade cranberry sauce rather than cooking down that canned stuff. The name of this recipe is awful (people twitch when I tell it to them) but can't turn down the finished product. The hubby literally went crazy over this. Used the Slow Cooker Turkey Breast recipe (and used the leftovers from that to make Turkey Posole - also from this recipe - amazing also!), then the Bread and Celery recipe for the stuffing. Took some of the broth leftover from the Slow Cooker Turkey and thickened it with a little cornstarch. So happy to find this recipe - when I explain it, it sounds magical to people. Just don't tell them the name and call it a Thanksgiving Casserole :)

Turkey Posole

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
My skeptical-of-new-recipes husband went crazy over this (he will eat anything with cumin in it). I had made the Slow Cooker Turkey Breast recipe with a 7-pounder to make the Leftover Turkey Cheesecake recipe and had so much left over, that I had to find something to do with it. This was PERFECT with it. So good. There was only one brand of turkey broth at the store but I was just happy they had any. When I can't find turkey broth - have had good results with turkey stock. Might take 2 days to make this next time - slow cook the turkey breast and shred, then take the bones and everything needed to make a proper broth and slow cook that. The onions and peppers disintegrated, I think the only thing I would do differently is to take that out and add that back in at the end. Also had leftover bread and made some croutons (Garlic Crouton recipe) which was AWESOME with this. The skeptical-hubby was nervous again but now says they are 'key' to this soup. Another phrase out of his mouth 'instant classic' and 'part of the rotation' ;)

Italian Stuffed Sandwich Wedges

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Made this to take to the winery with us and everyone went crazy over it. Added some prosciutto but don't necessarily think it added/detracted from anything. Let it sit overnight then cut it and plastic wrapped each section. The tapenade is fantastic!

Miso and Soy Chilean Sea Bass

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
We've made this twice now and it is unbelievable. The fish cooks so perfectly, and the sauce is not too sweet. We actually cook it in the toaster oven, which works great and makes sure that the house doesn't get too warm during the summer season. We also reduce the marinade just a little (to make sure it's cooked through) and drizzle it over the brown rice and veges that we serve this with. I look forward to Chilean sea bass sales!!!! This honestly couldn't be any easier. The rice takes about 30 minutes, and then we work on the veges about 10 minutes out and it all comes together with little to no effort. Amazing!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
This was quite good and made a good amount - we used 1 package ground turkey and 1 lb ground beef which seemed to give it a nice texture (or was it the slow cooking?) I used McCormick's chili seasoning packet (nearly 1.5) and made chili mac with it. After cooking it on the stove, I threw it into a lined slow cooker for 2 hours (I was afraid to scorch the chili in the pot on the stove) and it was awesome. Added a little extra tomato sauce to finish up the can (which is fine because we needed the sauce for the chili mac). Good stuff! Great with a spoonful of sour cream.

Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Great flavor. The pot I had overflowed when I put the rice in, so I had to cook everything over the stove for a few minutes. This ensured the rice was cooked properly. I wish I had followed the water amount in the recipe - I had added more due to several reviews saying there wasn't enough, and then turned out with really mushy rice. I think the few minutes on the stove ensured that it was cooked properly. Added about 1/2 teaspoon cayenne and could have used a full teaspoon. Really great flavor, can't wait to make this again.

Crab Legs with Garlic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
The husband went crazy over this sauce. I thought it was too salty (used salted butter), and will lave out the salt completely next time. Amazing!

Garlic Feta Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Really simple and delicious (awesome with pretzel crisps!). I more than halved the garlic and it was still garlicy! Added 1 teaspoon of lemon as others mentioned and used light sour cream and fat free plain yogurt - seems pretty healthy! Threw a few shakes of dried dill the next day for a different flavor - that was really good too. I was super psyched to find all of the items already in my fridge!

Chicken with Chipotle

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This was a nice flavor but very mild. I had issues with the sauce curdling and had to make sure I cooked only for a few minutes after adding the milk. The legs are so fatty, it took a while to de-fat. I might try drumsticks next time. The sauce is quite good.

Slow Cooker Chile Verde

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
This one was ok but nothing compared to doing it from scratch (Chile Verde II from Allrecipes is amazing).

Special Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
Followed maylanadalia's recommendation and simmered the shells from 2 tails in milk for about 15 minutes (which smelled amazing) which we then poured through a sieve into the roux. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly as stated, except threw in raw lobster from the tails at the end. It was truly an exceptional recipe. I didn't think the salt was necessary (as the celery salt is salty enough) - I say hold the salt and add as needed later. Next time I may try adding a bit of onion, celery and carrots to make a really rich broth, but I really did think it tasted perfect as is, that would just add a tiny bit more to an already amazing recipe.

Beef Tenderloin in Creamy Porcini Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
This recipe is sooo fabulous. We made it for an early Valentine's dinner and it was totally luxurious and completely befitting of the occasion. I normally hate onions and was worried about the pungency of the red onion but it cooked down absolutely deliciously (half was enough for us) - it's the first time I felt like an onion really truly complemented a sauce perfectly. I had a hard time finding new potatoes (in the dead of winter) and ended up using Yukon golds that we peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks. Next time I will cook it 8-10 minutes as after 5, they were still hard even after roasting. I didn't think the beef bouillon took away from the flavor, it made a really nice, beefy, mushroomy sauce. We trimmed the beef our self and cut them into 1" thick medallions. The beef came out PERFECTLY medium rare, I just can't say enough about this recipe. Can't wait to make it for company!

Pepperoni Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
This is soooooo good. Hearty, delicious, creamy, savory, it's got it all. It's perfect as is, but next time we're going to sneak in some more vegetables - sauteed green peppers, onions and mushrooms. I love the sausage links from the butcher's block in Whole Foods (I de-case them when I get home). Also loved this with Barilla's sweet pepper sauce. Unless I have 2 bags of shredded mozz on hand, I just use 1 (8 oz vs 12 oz) and I haven't missed it, and believe me, I love my cheese! We also used the Barilla Plus pasta, and some extra sauce (the entire 24 oz jar) which made it a lot less chewy. One last note is that turkey pepperoni totally does not cut it and dries out terribly during baking. We'll go back to full fat pepperoni next time! Also, I love black olives but didn't feel they were necessary here - the flavor just stood out.

Tuna Pockets

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Quite good although it makes me guilty to eat 2 biscuits filled with stuff. Definitely hearty and added a few shakes of lemon pepper and a squirt of dijon mustard. Very quick to put together and a great way to use up leftover biscuits.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Definitely delicious but not completely memorable? I'm not sure I'd remember to make these again. Other reviewers are right, it's more like a dense donut hole. Very sweet.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I think this is just me, but it's as good as canned green beans can get (in my opinion, you just can't spruce up canned green beans). The hubby thought it was great. Used this to get rid of a can I bought by mistake.
