Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
Sorry folks, this recipe was nothing special. In fact, I'd have to say I followed the recipe to a tee, and they turned out very dry and tasteless. Even a big glass of milk wouldn't help these puppies.

Coconut Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
Very easy to make. Everyone loved them except my husband. He prefers Oatmeal Raisin Cookies instead. The only change I made was I didn't have quite enough white chocolate chips, so I add 1/2 cup cinnamon chips. Everything else was the same.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
Made this recipe exactly as stated and no one thought they were special in any way. Quite bland. I've definitely had much better.

White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Fantastic recipe. Everyone raved at the party. None left. I made the crust in a 12" pizza pan. Do not over bake as crust will come out too crispy. I baked mine for 25 min. and it was too long. I also used half & half instead of heavy cream and it was fine. Make sure you use the glaze on top as it makes for a very professional appearance. Definitely will make again and again.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
My family loved this dish. Especially my picky 3 yr. old. I made the following changes: instead of using ground beef, I used ground turkey and 1 lb. of turkey sausage. I added one diced red pepper and in place of the stewed tomatoes I used one can of cream of mushroom soup. The last thing I did was to use chicken stock in place of water for more flavor. It came out delicious and my family asked that I put this in my favorite recipes book.

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I made this recipe exactly as stated and no one liked it. It had a funky taste and the breading came out soggy even though the scallops were perfectly cooked. Will not make this again.

Lemon Lush Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
My family loved this pie. I made the following changes: I used a 9" graham cracker crust; 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup lemon juice and a heaping tablespoon of grated lemon zest. Make sure you really cook this until it's very thick and don't use light sour cream or it will be a little runny. When it was completely chilled, just before serving I put a layer of cool whip on top and there wasn't a drop of pie left. I highly recommend this pie for a spring or summer treat as it is very refreshing.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I followed this recipe with the following exceptions: 1) used one tablespoon of dried basil since I didn't have fresh; 2) used frozen and thawed cooked jumbo shrimp since I didn't have fresh. The flavor was great except next time I will use fresh shrimp as the pre-cooked shrimp get dried out and rubbery on the grill even for 2 min. on each side.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I followed the recipe all the way except for taking the advice of other reviewers and using crushed graham crackers with a little butter for the crust instead of vanilla wafers. The cheesecakes were very bland and the crust falls off the bottom when you peel away the paper liners. Probably won't make these again and no one said they were special.

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as stated except I used one cup of milk as other reviewers advised. The taste was wonderful but I caution you to use the pie rings right from the beginning as the crust started to burn right from the get-go. Also, I tried to make two pies out of the filling but was only able to make one 9" and one 8".

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Good but it made way too much syrup. I used 1 cup white sugar & 1 cup brown sugar instead of two cups of white sugar. Next time I will use 3/4 cup of each. Otherwise nice flavor and aroma.

Turkey in a Bag

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I made this turkey exactly as stated except I also added some baby carrots inside the cavity along with the celery and onions. BE CAREFUL about the cooking time. My eleven pound turkey was done in 2-1/2 hrs. It was a little dry since I left it in an additional 15 minutes in hopes that it would brown some more. It didn't brown as much as I would have liked, but it made a nice broth for making gravy without all that butter. I will definitely make it again but take it out before it's overdone this time.

Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I followed this recipe to the letter except I used ground turkey instead of beef and it was not good. It turned out dry and bland. Husband hated the fact that he bit into chunks of onions and peppers from the salsa. Also, you can't put ketchup on turkey meatloaf.

Pumpkin Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
These cookies melt in your mouth. Everyone loved them! The only changes I made were I halved the recipe and still used 1 egg, used 1 teas. pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and used mini chocolate chips instead of regular. I ended up with 38 cookies.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
After reading all the positive reviews I couldn't wait to make this recipe. Sorry to say, no one liked it. I followed the recipe exactly and the cauliflower came out very dry and somewhat bland. My daughter tried dipping it in blue cheese dressing and said it made it a little better.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as written except I added a teaspoon of minced garlic. The flavor was just okay. The thing I didn't like the most was the sauce was way too runny. We like our sauce on the thicker richer side.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Rich and Delicious!!! Made this exactly as stated with no changes. My hubby loves frosted brownies and he had no idea these were made with zucchini. Even my 2 yr. old granddaughter said they were "the yummiest brownies ever!"

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Very moist and fantastic flavor BUT even though I thoroughly greased a non-stick bundt pan, I needed a chisel to get it out. It broke up into several pieces. Good thing I only made it for my family. Since they really liked it, they didn't mind that it was broken up. Also, my three yr. old didn't like those "green" things in the cake, so next time I'm going to peel the zucchini first.

California Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
I made this recipe with the following changes and it came out perfect: I used one small head of cabbage and one small head of red cabbage; I omitted the red pepper since I didn't have one; and I only used 3/4 cup canola oil. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make again.
