Oven Roasted Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
Teriyaki chicken sounded good so I was anxious to try this. I made the recipe as written except that I substituted brown sugar for Splenda. I was afraid the cider vinegar would be too assertive and my fears were confirmed. I think this would be better with no vinegar or half of the vinegar. Also, fresh grated ginger has 10X more flavor than ground ginger...I'll never use the ground ginger again. Teriyaki flavor was pretty good....just needed some extra flavor somewhere. Also, 1 hour was WAY too long. I cooked half of the thighs with skin on and half without skin. Even the pieces cooked with skin on were starting to get too dry. 45 min would be plenty. I think this recipe is a decent starting point but I'm shocked that it has so many 5 star reviews.

Smokey Tequila-Lime Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
I tried this recipe as it is...I thought it was OK but didn't really taste like I wanted. It was way too smokey and light on the lime, tequila and cilantro. I increased the lime juice to around 1/3 to 1/2 cup lime juice, added a TSP of dijon mustard to form an emulsion and did not add salt at all. Hit it with garlic salt just before the grill. I left out the liquid smoke completely. Results of my changes were MUCH better IMO

Heather's Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Only thing I do differently is added 1/2 of 1 jalapeno finely diced. Excellent recipe!

Juicy Lucy Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
The recipe is very good as it is, but fantastic if you double the wochestershire sauce and I like to use 2 tsp of montreal steak seasoning in place of the garlic salt and pepper. Two very important things - it is absolutely critical that you leave enough room on the edges to get a good seal. If the cheese runs out, not near as good. And by the way, if the cheese does start to run out, its done! Get it off the grill or pan before you lose your cheese! I tried to make this a little healthier with 94% lean burger....not near as good as when I made the exact same recipe with 80% lean. You need the fat and grease for a great burger. BTW - I saw 1 review that gave 1 star because the cheese leaked out (user error) and 1 gave a low rating because the recipe has a lot of fat. REALLY? Rate on the quality of the recipe, not on your ability to cook or you opinion of what is healthy or not.

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I wanted a moiste sweet banana CAKE...and this recipe delivered. I made cupcakes and filled them about 80% full. Got a nice muffin top and they were done in about 24 minutes. EXCELLENT recipe!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This recipe is an OK base if you've never made potato soup, but definitely needs some tweaking. I did not read all of the reviews before I made it, but I thought 1 tsp of basil sounded like a ton of basil, so I cut that down....And it was still too much. 1/4 tsp is plenty. Not sure how anyone rated this recipe, as is, as a 5 star recipe.
