Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
I would love to give this recipe 5 stars, but my entire apartment filled up with smoke while making this, so I just can't. I realize I should've known better than to prepare chicken breast in a skillet, but you live, you learn. Anyway, definitely take the advice of other reviewers and BAKE the chicken in the oven. The flavor of the spices was delicious, but I also needed to double the recipe in order to have enough to cover the chicken. Also, I would probably decrease the salt next time. If you don't care about filling your whole house with smoke, my chicken came out pretty dry after following the recipe's recommended cook time for chicken breasts cut in half, so I would suggest decreasing that as well. Bottom line: great combination of spices, but best cooked in the oven!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Sadly, I was not too impressed with this recipe. I made this for my boyfriend on Valentine's Day. I took others' advice and made double the topping, which was a mistake. Since there was so much crumb mixture, the topping on the outsides cooked too much while the inside didn't cook enough. My oven is fairly new and I doubt the problem was due to uneven cooking. After reading all the great reviews, I was really exciting about making it, but neither my bf nor I thought it was that great. Definitely better served warm with ice cream, but a recipe should be great on its own too. I can only hope my disappointment in this dish was due to doubling the topping. If I gave this dish a second chance, I would definitely stick to the original recipe.
