Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I'd give these 2.5 stars if I could, but since I can't, I'll be nice. I wish I thought these were the best brownies. They're OK, but God, it would have been easier and tastier for me to run to the store and pick up some Entenmann's brownies. Also, 16 servings?? What?! This makes 16 servings if you consider one serving to be a brownie the size of a quarter.

Pesto Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
Delicious. The best pasta recipe I've found so far on this site. Often times I find myself adding ingredients for more flavor but this recipe was fantastic as is, no changes necessary. I will make this again and again.

Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I doubled the amount of of chile paste and still couldn't taste it at all. So much for the "spicy" part. So I added 3 more tablespoons and a ton of garlic. That made it much more palatable. Surprised how bland this is without any alterations. Good starting point, though.

Peanut Butter Milk Shakes

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I don't know if it's my blender or the recipe or what but it came out like a big glass of peanut butter milk. I'm not happy.

Green Chile Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
It is somewhat bland and as others have said, you can hardly taste the chiles. I may try this again as a base, but I will probably just look for a different frittata recipe. O well.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
This is quite tasty and pretty spicy, just how I like it. The recipe says it will be ready in 50 minutes; took me twice as long. Cutting uncooked sausage into 1/2 inch slices is a pain in the neck. It would have made more sense had the recipe suggested cooking the sausage first. The idea that all the ingredients could fit in a large skillet is absurd. They barely fit in a large pot. With whole wheat pasta, it is VERY filling.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
I recently tested this out hoping I could find a recipe to really wow my family come Thanksgiving. I was skeptical but holy smokes, this is fantastic. In the weeks since I made the pie, I've found myself randomly craving it. I have one minor complaint, which is unrelated to the recipe itself. I only wish it had included how long it takes for the pie to cool. From the time I started boiling the sweet potato to the time the pie was cool enough to cut was over 4 hours. So next time I won't start making it at 6PM. Other than that. YUM. 5 stars.

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
This isn't a bad recipe. It is nice and moist and chewy and I like the crunch the celery adds. However, it is rather bland and has nowhere near the flavor of buffalo wings. I topped my burgers with sriracha but it wasn't enough; the burgers themselves need more kick. Next time, I will add more sauce and seasonings. Also I did not care for the dip. The sour cream reminded me of yogurt. I would just use blue cheese alone next time.

Chicken Ranch Pizza with Bacon

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Tastes like soup on a crust. Can't taste the cheese at all and the bacon is barely noticeable. I'll try a different recipe next time. Boo.
