Very good. Kids loved it. I also roasted the garlic at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
Simple and yummy, but add some salt for more flavor (or maybe it was not salty enough because I used reduced-sodium broth). Great comfort food for a cold day, great with cheddar biscuits (recipe from this site). Preschoolers thought it was "OK", my hubby and I liked it.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
It was good, but I should have used a different cut of chicken than I did, the outside didn't crisp before the inside cooked because I used tenders. I will try this again with breasts or thighs, the taste was good and it was very easy to prepare. I used panko bread crumbs.

Wedge Salad with Elegant Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
5 stars! I definitely have to applaud any salad recipe that has everyone - even my picky preschoolers - asking for seconds. Amazing!!!

BBQ Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
Yummy, I rubbed with minced garlic and ground pepper and wrapped in foil, baked at 250 for 2 hr 20 min, unwrapped foil and slathered on BBQ sauce, baked at 425 for 30 min. Ribs could have been a little more tender, I think I should have baked it longer at 250 and applying a more complex dry rub recipe produces tastier results.

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
4 and a half stars, using Japanese eggplant. Salted and sweated them first for 25 min and then roasted for 25 min w/ EVOO drizzle at 350 before proceeding. I was shocked that my two picky toddlers liked these! I had made roast chicken too, thinking they wouldn't eat these and they ate the croquettes instead of the chicken. Kids are so unpredictable! :) Anyway, it's a very good way to get vegetables in your kids. :)

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
So much more flavorful than other bruschettas I've made before due to the addition of the sun-dried tomatoes. Delicious!

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
I am a frequent baker, and this is the first meringue pie that I've ever made that wept! I got a watery layer between my meringue and my filling that I had to pour out after it cooled for a little bit. The flavor was otherwise spot-on, just as you would expect from a lemon meringue. I also used 1/2 c juice and zest from 1 lemon. I'll give it 4 stars on taste but I think I'll stick to my usual lemon meringue recipe next time since my usual recipe doesn't weep.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
Yum! I liked this a lot. I made it with orzo instead of fettucini but otherwise made this recipe exactly as directed. I'll be adding it to the rotation, thanks for sharing!

Homemade Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I did not change any ingredients in the recipe, the only thing I did differently was to boil the wontons in water before adding to chicken broth as the other reviewers suggested. The soup had a nice taste but seemed a little lacking in flavor to me, felt like it needed something to put it over the top (MSG?), the soup I buy from restaurants seems more tasty.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
These are definitely interesting. I think I do like them but the flavor combination is very unusual. My husband didn't quite know what to make of them, either. My two preschoolers did not like them. I probably will not make this recipe again.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
My husband and 2 toddlers LOVED these. I oven-roasted the corn in their husks at 350 for 25 minutes because I am too lazy to grill. I sprinkled my hubby's with hot chili pepper but gave my 2 preschoolers the corn without chili. All loved it and went back for seconds. 5 stars!

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Just like a pizookie, served warm with vanilla ice cream. YUM. So easy to make and so delicious. I halved the recipe and baked it in a greased 9" cake pan and it came out great, crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle. I baked mine for 20 min.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
These were very good. I made 1.5x the amount of sauce per other reviewers' comments but will try it the regular way next time since they ended up very saucy. Tasty with bacon crumbled on top.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
Pretty good. I halved the recipe and put it in a 8x8 but made no other changes. My hubby liked it, I thought it was just OK, and both of my picky eaters (preschoolers) ate a little bit, which I didn't think they would because they normally don't like spinach. I personally prefer a standard tomato-based lasagna but I'm giving it 4 stars based on my hubby's and kids' opinions.
