Bacon-Balsamic Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Excellent ingredients and excellent texture! The bacon is awesome mixed into this. The only thing I'd do differently the second time 'round is to omit the sugar and double the balsamic vinegar. I still can't figure out why'd you want to add sugar to this!

Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
These were nice and tasty! Didn't alter the ingredients one bit. Who wouldn't want a heaping deviled egg (don't hold back on the relish or anything!)?? I had to hold back one star due to the instructions on how to cook the eggs. As written, the eggs do not come out fully cooked. Thought I'd follow the instructions exactly and see what happened, but I think I'll stick to my way next time.

Pineapple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Very nice and easy bread pudding, but . . . you really, really need a sauce to go with this! Modified the ingredients as almost everyone else did and only used 1 stick butter (1/2 cup) and only 1/4 c sugar (since there is plenty of sugar in the pineapples. Recommendation - don't drain the pineapples if you want your pudding to be moist.

Rum Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Great sauce to accompany any bread pudding. Followed the directions as written and the rum is not over powering. The texture is awesome.

Afghan Okra

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Good ingredients, but there's no 'wow' factor to the taste. Easy to prepare.

Tofu Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Good and healthy! Doubled the onions and garlic amount for taste and texture. Maybe some garlic powder would make it tastier??

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
1st time I ever made lasagna AND had ricotta cheese! This recipe was great! I stuck to the recipe pretty true to word. 1) Yes, there's gonna be a lot of sauce leftover - serve your lasagna on top of a spread of sauce or use the sauce to dip french bread in! 2) Why doesn't anyone want to cook the noodles first?? My noodles did not turn out "soggy" as others have warned about cooking them first. 3) 1 1/2 hours of simmering the sauce - that's nothing. Go watch t.v., play Facebook. This is way better than having to wait overnight as others have suggested. The flavors are awesome as is. 4) A 9x13" pan was exactly what was needed for all the layering in the instructions. 5) One thing not mentioned in the original recipe, but I couldn't NOT do it . . . after you brown the beef with the onions and garlic . . . DRAIN the fat. 6) Ricotta cheese comes in 15 oz packages - good enough. 7) For pretty coloring - sprinkle the top of the lasagna before baking with some Marble Jack or Cheddar cheese.

Eat Michigan Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Absolutely wonderful! What a great, refreshing salad! Never tried goat cheese before - it added a great texture and I got one on sale that was cinnamon and cranberry flavored! Mmmm :)

Stir-Fried Mushrooms with Baby Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
This turned out to be a very nice, light, tasty side dish. Browning the garlic really added flavor! Used chili paste in the sauce instead of an actual pepper as topping as some have recommended. Omitted the cornstarch mix in due to the sauce having a nice consistency already.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I was expecting a surprising flavor here, but it ended up just tasting like warm peanut butter held in a tasteless jalapeno shell. Roasting made the peppers wilty, and the flavor and spunk just weren't there. Needs more spicing, ingredients, or something.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
I never knew mint could be so tasty in a dish! Excellent rolls accompanied by excellent sauces! I loved the advice of mixing 1 Tbsp of peanut butter with the 3 Tbsp Hoisin - heat it up and yummy!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Very good, easy meatloaf! Definitely took the advice of others to double the sauce, saute the onions, and add 1 Tbsp of Worcetshire (sp?) sauce! Next time I'm going to rig it so that the fat/oil from the meat can drip to an underlying pan.

Nacho Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Great consistency . . . nice and thick with the added salsa. But, yes, it is quite bland even when made with sharp cheddar and jalapenos. Make sure you serve this piping hot over nachos otherwise it starts clumping (I, unfortunately, let it cool too much).

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
These are nice and soft cookies! The taste is quite subtle . . . the idea of adding some liquor to the cookie might enhance the flavor!

Cauliflower with Dijon Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Sure it was easy to put together, but l didn't care for the taste. Too much mustard and not enough 'other seasoning'.

Ghirardelli® Dark Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Way too rich. Messy to make. Felt like I was eating butter flavored with chocolate. The batch made a considerable amount as well.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Absolutely wonderful! Great mix of flavors and textures! Spinach is a pretty hearty leaf - you don't need to worry about it getting 'wilty' as others have said.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Excellent cookie! Green food coloring is not a must - save yourself $2.50. Scooped 2 teaspoon drops onto baking pan, and it made a slew of mint 'crisps'. Excellent combo of mint and chocolate!
