Amazing 'Pizza' Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
This seems pretty kiddy at first glance, but it's a surprisingly fresh and delicious meal. Use a nice, thick, boneless pork chop, thick slices of tomato, and don't skimp on the garlic or basil. Mmmm..

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2013
Interesting mix of ingredients. Fresh, clean, and tasty. Tip: don't slice the cucumbers too thick or they'll squirt right out when you bite in!

Tuna Steaks with Melon Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
The salsa was tasty, as was the fish. The problem: the salsa got lost on the meaty fish. I would totally make this again, but with a more delicate fish like Tilapia.

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
We've tried a lot of salmon recipes on allrecipes. This is freaking fantastic and the best we've had, particularly the avocado dip. The salmon itself is interchangeable - toss things up by coating it in some agave for a sweet crust, or with some cayenne for a spicy twist.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
Made as directed. White meat was dry, dark was better, and it wasn't "sticky" as described. Flavors were not bad, but could have used more. There was a lot of juice in the bag before cooking. What I believe happens is that the salt pulls the juices out of the chicken. Given enough time, the chicken should reabsorb that (plus the seasonings) and make for a very moist bird (I've done this on turkey), but overnight standing just doesn't give it enough time.

Bourbon Apple Cider and Honey Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
Glaze took 3x specified time to reduce at low temperature. Cooking time was way too long - used 1 inch bone-in pork chops and they were at 175 by 30 minutes (USDA says they only need to be at 145). Maybe I should have used thicker chops, but an hour is way too long at 350. Glaze was one dimensional - just sweet, not much flavor. Wouldn't make this again.

Salade Lyonnaise

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
Not a big fan. Felt like it was missing something - definitely too much dressing (1.5 cups for 1 head of lettuce?).

Mexican Bean and Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
Good, but a bit dry. Would add more lime and cook the rice with too much water.

Holly Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
Important: DO NOT use wax paper. Use parchment paper. Wax paper is not quite capable of handling the sticky, delicious cookies.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
This recipe is so simple, but ridiculously tasty. I did find that I had to cook it about 45 minutes to get it up to 165.. seems like a long time for boneless chicken, perhaps due to the salsa.

Southwestern Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
It's a good base. I think that next time, I'll add more to jazz it up (maybe some beans, corn, and fresh jalapeno).

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
Tasty, but the sauce wasn't much of a glaze. Should boil longer to reduce.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
Simple to make and surprisingly delicious. Don't skimp on the dollop of sour cream and green onions!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Made this with the cheese on top and baked (per author's variant). Was quite tasty, although I think it could have used even more cheese on top.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
This is actually almost identical to the Nestle Scotchies recipe, just less butter. Welcome change, as it firms them up some.

Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
Warm, hearty, and delicious. Will make again next time I have a ham bone.. nothing quite like the flavor. I made this in the crock pot while I was at work (10 hours), but this apparently gets better the longer it cooks.

Mediterranean Linguine with Basil and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
Nice flavors, but far too oily. Maybe needed some sort of other liquid in place of at least part of the oil - chicken stock maybe?

Bacon-Balsamic Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Holy lord in heaven. Best deviled eggs ever. For an added "something special", sprinkle some smoked paprika on top.
