B and L's Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2002
My children and I felt that this recipe was very refreshing. Not too much sugar which enhanced the flavor of the strawberries. We may experiment with the fruit, but not the added ingredients. This recipe is a real treat.

Hash Brown and Pork Chop Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2003
This recipe was very good (something different). It was easy to make and the hash browns were creamy. I used sharp cheese instead of mild and felt that the hash browns could use the extra kick. My boyfriend felt that the pork chops could have used some sort of seasoning while cooking in the oven. I feel that this recipe gives you room to experiment.

Thai Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2003
These burgers are good, but I really wouldn't compair them to "Thai". The lemon grass wasn't strong enough to give it that Thai flavor. (In order to get that taste you need vinegar). We followed the recipe exact and felt they were missing something nonetheless. My boyfriend added more onion and I added pepperjack cheese. All in all, if you want a burger with a different taste then these will do just fine.

Pepperoni Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
These were okay, not great. I was hoping for a more chewy dough. To me, it was too sweet and too heavy. I will keep searching.

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I love fondue, but this did not work out as well as I had hoped. Followed the instructions to the letter. Had all good brand cheeses. I did like the flavor, but not the consistency. The cheese was watery and clogged up on the bottom in the fondue pot. We think it may have been the cheddar, but this is just a guess. Won't do again.

Lemon Basil Pesto Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
As we thought, most of the outer ingredients fell off on the grill, plus it flamed up a bit. The only flavor that stood out (for us) was the garlic. 4 minutes per side wasn't long enough & our steak was pretty thin. I don't think we'll be doing this one again.

Raw Apple Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2003
This cake was very good. My boyfriend said it was just like his Mom's but without the nuts. I will add the nuts next time.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
This was absolutely delicious. We used 2 pounds of meat and one hole beer (Guinness Stout). We cooked it in a crock pot for 3 hours, turning every hour. DELICIOUS!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2004
This is my families favorite sweet potato recipe so far. I've made this twice now and it looks like it's a lock-in when it comes to Thanksgiving. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who loves creamy sweet potatoes without the marshmallows.

Creamy Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2004
This was a nice change from the standard deviled eggs. I used instant minced onions and only half of what the recipe called for. They get softer and have less of a twang than real onions. My kids liked the change and said would do them again sometime along with the standard deviled eggs. No problem for me, these were good.

City Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2004
I made this recipe exactly as indicated but doubled since I had more than 1-1/2 lbs. of pork. I grew up with City Chicken without the gravy so I thought this recipe would be interesting. Turns out that it was okay, nothing special to the meat. The kids liked the gravy but thought the meat was missing something. I can't imagine what, it did have enough flavor with the herbs and seasons. Maybe next time I'll make it like I always did and let them compare the two. I think I prefer the old way, but this wasn't too bad for something different.

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2003
This recipe was very good. We didn't have the Romano and doubled up on the Parmensan. We feel that fresh Parmesan would have given it a richer taste. We also would have prefered to use fresh fish, but the frozen worked just fine. This is a nice change for fish. Would do this one again.

Baked Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2003
This is an outstanding recipe, should have made more. My whole family loved it. I love seafood anyway and this was a nice one to combine all of my favorite into one meal. Wouldn't have this one alone, not filling enough. We had a nice salad with this and some biscuits, very nice together.

Texas Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2003
We wanted to make this recipe but didn't have as much time to spare as it called for. We used the rub and let it marinade in the fridge for about 4-1/2 hours. Then we let them cook for about 3 to 3-1/2 hours instead of 4. I will tell you that they were excellent. There were none left! I loved the rub, didn't need the BBQ sauce. I will no doubt make these again.

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
My BF loved this recipe. I personally thought it was too spicy. The chicken was very tender, melted in your mouth without any extra marinating or brining. We served this over rice and had with Naan bread. I don't know if this is something I would do again.

Sausage, Apple, and Cranberry Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Made this dressing to take home for a visit with my sons. They are young, so they are picky. I wasn't sure the cranberries would be a hit in the dressing, but each of them loved it. I would suggest a bit more chicken stock however and less apples. Since I already had a sausage with sage in it (Neese's), I left out the additional and it worked out well with the flavor. This recipe made more than enough for 5 adults. I will be making this again when it's time to visit our parents. :) Thank you for posting.

Crab Appetizer Napoleons

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
These were very good. Just right for a light appetizer during a ball game. I don't care for onions, but the green onions gave it the kick and crunch it needed. I used old bay instead of paprika, but feel a sprinkle wasn't enough, so next time I'll incorporate it in the cream cheese mix. Will be doing these again.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
The recipe was a bit harder than we thought, not impossible however. I personally felt it was a bit dry. Would make a nice bread pudding however. The taste was fine, not special to me. I would suggest having this with a "gravy" meal to sop-up the leftovers.

Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I cut this recipe in half and made for Zuppa Toscana Soup. I also used the bread machine using the dough cycle. The bread came out perfectly, tasted wonderful and the texture was great. I used the bowls again a couple of days later for chili. Fantastic! A keeper!!

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
I'm sorry to disagree with other reviewers, but this Marinade was not impressive and we feel didn't add much to the chicken. My BH is an excellent cook and loves to BBQ, so we thought this would be something different for our grilled chicken. It was too liquidy, didn't taste anthing other than the oil or soy sauce (too much if you ask me). And we feel it didn't do much to tenderize the chicken. I feel that once you "brine" poultry you can't go back to other recipes for tenderizing. I was hoping that the marinade would at least give this chicken some flavor, but it didn't work for me. Sorry!
