Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Everyone kept saying it was the best prime rib they ever had! And I agree! I made two 5 pound roasts and timed the cooking as a 5 lb cut. I used fresh thyme. As others suggested, I did 12 min at 460, 8 at 400, and 1 hr and 40 min at 325. Came out perfect at 125 degrees. I can't get over how good this was!

Maple-Garlic Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This was AWESOME! It's officially being added to the three prok recipes I cook regularly. I didn't marinade it, I cooked it like I normally cook pork: 325 for 1 hour (this sears it) with salt and pepper, then added the sauce and cooked for about 45 more minutes (it was a large tenderloin). Also, I use less maple, about a half cup, mixed with 2 tbsp or so of dijon mustard and 6 large minced garlic cloves. SOOO delicious!

Herman Reunion Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This was excellent! And I am never that crazy about cheese balls, but decided to try it for Thanksgiving because I know it's an easy crowd pleaser. Well, was I absolutely pleased too! I scaled back to 2 pckgs of cream cheese, kept the worcestershire amt. the same, left out the hot sauce & parsley, and added 1 tsp. of garlic. Oh, I also added a little over a half stick of soft butter. I didn't freeze it, just put it in the fridge over night. Plus, I just mixed it by hand really well since it was so thick that I was afraid it wouldn't do well in my blender. I made the turkey feather version by sticking whole pecans into it like feathers & bistro-style pepperidge farm crackers for the tail feathers. My husband carved turkey heads out of cheddar cheese...we made two balls and they were absolutely adorable! My mother-in-law insisted on taking some pics before we devoured them! I will always make these for Thanksgiving!

Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Creamy and delicious! I made three layers and used a few more noodles. I also added some fresh spinach to one of the layers, some mozzerella to all layers and on top. SOoooo good! Next time, I will add more garlic since I'm a garlic freak! My 4 year old even liked it (I made 1/4 of it without the spinach for her).

Pasta Con Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
This was right up my alley because I loooove cream sauces. I quadrupled the recipe, added more garlic and parm, and I left out the tomato sauce. It's fabulous! Oh and after dinner, I steamed more broccoli and added it to the leftovers because I like more veggies in my dishes. I'm having the leftovers now...sooo delicious! A tip: cream sauces can be a bit funny when you reheat them, so I wet a paper towel and place it over the whole dish when reheating in the microwave.

Bats and Cobwebs

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Simple and SO tasty. My 5 yr old loves the idea of calling the bowtie bats, but she calls the cheese bat poo. LOL Not appetizing, but cute. :-) Happy Halloween!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
My first go at making buttercream frosting, and boy am I pleased! I followed the recipe exactly, to make my version of oatmeal cream pies. My hubby is normally not a huge fan of buttercream, but he couldn't stop eating this kind! I'm excited to add other flavorings in the future!

Halloween Bloody Baked Rats

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
My daughter LOVED telling Grandma that we'd be having "Bloody Rats" for dinner! I didn't do the cheese thing. I added the worcestershire sauce and some soy sauce and garlic powder to the meat. I shaped 7 rats, put them on a drip pan (not sure if that's what it's called) so that the fat would drip away from the meat. I baked it like this for 25 minutes. Then I put them in a baking dish with a large can of pasta sauce poured over and around the rats and baked them for 10 minutes, turned off the heat while I finished the rest of my dinner. It was perfect!!! And Grandma said, "I love these rats! We should have them more often!". My daughter got a kick out of this! I paired this all with witches fingers (biscuits shaped into fingers with almond slivers as nails), boiled brains (a whole cauliflower, cut in half and boiled for 10 minutes and drizzled with watered down ketchup when served), eyeballs (deviled eggs with an olive for the iris), worms (spaghetti pre-chopped into small pieces) and "Kitty Litter Cake" from this site. Dinner was horrific! lol

Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
My family and I absolutely loved this sweet coleslaw! I didn't use pineapple juice, so it was likely not as sweet as it could be, but I didn't miss it. Instead, I added 2 teaspoons of finely shredded coconut right on top of the chopped apples (highly experimental) and the juice from half a lemon, and I was sooooo happy I did! The coconut flavor is light but noticeable and soooooo good with the apple flavor! I also mixed the wet ingredients together first like others suggested. Mine was not soupy at all because I used pre-shredded cabbage (cole slaw mix) from Sam's. I'm pleased with how light the dressing is because it doesn't make me feel guilty for eating it!

Mexican Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This recipe probably would have been milder but just as good as the tweaked one I made. And lemme say, it was AWESOME! I doubled the onion, the cocoa, and cumin, used 6 cloves minced garlic, and tomato sauce instead of soup. Oh and I used a can of diced tomatoes with green Chiles already in it. I spread half the sauce on the bottom of a baking dish, put 12 skinless boned chicken thighs on top, sprinkled salt and pepper on top and saved the other half of the sauce to spoon on the chicken individually. Oh yeah, I cooked it at 400 degrees until the temp was right on the thermometer...about 40-45 minutes. PERFECT!!!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
SO simple! I can't believe how easy these were! And the whole family LOVED them. I asked how many stars they thought the recipe should receive out of five, and they said 6! lol I followed the recipe to the letter, except I cut the butter into tiny squares. I'm definitely making these weekly!

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Great flavor and super simple! I used unsweetened apple sauce instead of the juice, about a lil less than a tbsp of rosemary (it can overpower dishes easily, in my opinion) and about 2 tbsp of dijon. Perfect!

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I made these for my daughter's classmates and teachers for Christmas, and got rave reviews! I added crushed peppermint to the dough and rolled it in pure peppermint candy after rolling it in a powdered sugar/peppermint mixture. I'm in LOVE with these because they're buttery AND minty! Two of my favorite flaves!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This was sooooo scrumdillyumcious! My husband and 4 year old LOVED it, especially the sugary part :P Aurora kept saying, "It's sooooo soft!" as she mooshed it between her fingers. haha The first layer of batter was really thin, so I wasn't able to have much of a top layer of batter. I put almost all the topping on, then glopped about a dozen balls of batter on top, then put the remainder of the sugar mixture on top. I also drizzled a little melted butter around on top, which I would probably add even more next time. My husband made the brown sugar himself by combining molasses with sugar, which gave it a FABULOUS flavor. The topping, being almost completely on top, wasn't too crumbly, it was soooo delicious. Also, I used half white flour and half wheat flour, and it only needed to be cooked for 35 minutes. I can't say enough how much my whole family loved it! I'm going to make this cake often :)

Roasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
So much better than store-bought garlic bread (of course)! Next time, I will roast the garlic a bit longer to make it creamier, though.
