Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Excellent and different. You have to love basil for this one. The basic really comes through. Would like to try it on chicken or seafood, maybe on a bed of pasta.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Ya know, this is the first REAL chili I ever made. I have my version, which is good. I thought for once I would try a recipe. Excellent. I followed it as written, though I was a tad short on the chili powder. Adjustments? I don't think it needs any. The spice was great, not to hot and we are a family with teens, picky eaters, hot and no spice eaters. We all ate it. I will make it again. Loved all the onion and peppers. The recipe really did not suggest what type of hot pepper to use, I used Jalapenos. Just really good and bomb proof if ya ask me.

Scrumptious Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
OK, really lovely shortcake. I didn't want to make minor changes, had too. I have been trying to come up with some sweet things for my DH who needs to bring his cholesterol down. I followed it exactly as written except I used non dairy creamer. I was nervous that it would ruin it. It came out wonderful. Light, airy, perfectly sweetened, super easy. I served it with fresh strawberries and blueberries and lite whipped topping. Just great. Honey, didn't notice a thing. And he is the beaker of detection on things nonfat, sugar free, diet, missing out kind of stuff. I am so confident now that next time I am using Splenda. 5 stars from me! Have made this a few times now.Still 5 stars! The best shortcake we have ever had! Wanted to add in a few thoughts... The recipe does not give detailed instructions on how to mix this. I am not very good making light pastry stuff. My pie crusts for example need work. Reading the reviews, it is important NOT to handle the dough much. The less the better. So I did things like whipping the egg in with the cream, added the dry ingredients and mixed really well before moving on, and I just used my fingers to the small pieces of cut up butter. Used my hands to gently mix in the end, with a quick roll out with my rolling pin. I followed the ingredients exactly. Did not cut out the cream of tarter as others suggested. Light, delicate, just great!!! Thank you.

The Best Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Five stars and I am hard to please. I followed it exactly except for the fact I had to make mock buttermilk and then accidently tossed it in clean up while cooking! So I ended up, during the gravy time, just using straight milk. Came out great regardless of my mess up. We like tabasco sauce, used extra. The only recipe to use for Chicken Fried Steak! That and I am not that big on it. I was tonight. Happy for breakfast leftovers. Husband died and went to heaven. Wish I had that kind of power!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
Just what I was looking for! Very good recipe and very versatile to boot. We spend a fortune in granola bars. I made a double batch. I followed others suggestions; altered the sugar, used less and it was Splenda, added extra raisins along with dried cranberries! I wish I had wheat germ, didn't, used ground flax seed. All a good idea if you ask me. I would of put wheat germ in to if I had it. Walnuts a plenty. Upped it. Half whole, half chopped for a different texture. Lastly I really wanted a dense bar, so when I put the batter in the baking pan I packed it down pretty hard. Perfect. I thought about peanut butter. Next time! I am adding on to my review 2 weeks later. Made this batch halving the oil with applesauce. Still came out very good, not quite as great but if you are looking to cut calories works fine. Still going to try peanut butter!

Million Dollar Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
OH MY! This is one delicious monster! Mine turned out huge! Loved it. It is all about the filling. I didn't even bother trying to frost the sides. Looked pretty, showing off the layers, all 8 of them (4 cake, 4 frosting, by the time the layers were completed)! I did add some coconut into the filling, then sprinkled some on top along with decorating with the mandarin oranges. Fan-tab-monster-lious!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Great easy meatloaf. I follow the recipe except for saltines were "Ritz type" crackers, and my ginger was fresh for the topping. I also used a splash of Worscestshire sauce ( a bit of both in the meat and in the topping), and pulverized a half of a onion in my food processor. The onion used that way, really increases the flavor and adds to the moistness. I have made this before and still agree the sauce needs to be on top. It saturates the meat, and if you are real lucky even get carmalized edges due to the brown sugar. I serve it with mashed potatoes, green beans or peas, and dinner rolls. I have even divided up the meatloaf mixture and made separate meatloaf muffins, using my muffin tin. Once in a while I will throw a chunk of cheese in the center of each muffin tin mixture. Family loves it. Today I snuck in finely chopped mushrooms, celery, and carrot. It is in the oven as we speak, we will see if the picky kids notice.

Chewy Crispy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Once again, an excellent cookie. Crisp on the outside , chewy in the middle. I took another's advice and toasted the coconut. Great! I also made one batch basic, another with a chunk of caramel in the middle, and the last with choclate chips in it. Can't decide which one is best! A winner. Would be great dressed up for the holidays!

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
This was great. Was eating the fried eggplant slices faster than I could fry 'em. The only thing I added, and it is just a special touch was to use fresh basil leaves. I used an eggplant slice, ricotto cheese mixture, topped with another eggpant slice (like a sandwich), spread on some sauce, then arranged fresh basil leaves on in a flower pattern, 4-5 leaves, topped with a slice of fresh tomatoe then sprinkled on the parmesan. Can out very pretty with the basil leaves sticking out from under the tomatoe slice. We didn't need the pasta.
