A Little Bit of Everything

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2004
I used half this recipe for a 32 ounce steak and had more than enough marinade. I cooked it on my George Foreman grill for 2 and 1/2 minutes and it came out medium rare,and was tender and juicy. We enjoyed the flavor but all we could really taste was the vinegar. I think I might play around with it to tone down the vinegar taste just a bit.

Dilly Cheese Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
I made this entirely in my bread machine and was very disappointed. It didn't rise very high at all, the crust was too crunchy and the bread was too chewy. It hurt our jaws to eat it. On the positive side, it was much better the next day after being toasted. It seems that most of the previous reviewers finished their's off in the oven which is what I will try next time. Also, I substituted dill seed for the dill weed which I loved.

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
The pepper in this ruined it for me. There was way too much and it was all I could taste. I used 1 cup of water and 1 tsp of onion soup mix in place of half of the broth and also used 1/4 tsp of salt. I will try this again but cut down the pepper to about 1/4 tsp or use other spices instead.

Skillet Chops with Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2004
This was a great recipe and a lot quicker than the oven baked version. I used 5 of the smaller boneless pork chops and still had plenty of bread crumb mixture and sauce left over. The gravy was great over rice but next time I think I'll try some mashed potatoes on the side. I will definitely make this again.

Seven Grain Bread II

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2004
It wasn't until after I put the ingredients in my bread machine and set my timer that I realized that this was a 2lb loaf recipe and my machine is only a 1 1/2lb! So I set it on the dough setting and when it was done I had to put the dough in the fridge overnight. Then I finished it off in the oven the next evening. I set it at 375 degrees for 30 min, but it was not enough because even though it looked done, the middle was still a bit doughy. I had to wrap it in tinfoil and put it in for another 10 mins. Aside from that, it tasted really good fresh out of the oven but I wasn't crazy about the toast it made the next day. It stayed soft and didn't get very browned and crisp. I think next time I'm going to scale the recipe to 12 servings and try it again in my bread machine to see if it will be any different.

Monkey Bread II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2004
This is a really great recipe. I like it better than other recipes I've found because I prefer to make my own dough in the bread machine. I set my timer so that the dough would be ready in the morning and then finished off the recipe so that it would be ready for breakfast. The taste was very much like a creme brulee french toast recipe I've previously tried on this site, but this looks much more appealing. When we served it, instead of cutting it into slices, we used our forks to take off one little ball at a time. Make sure you keep the balls of dough small when you are making it, because it tastes much better that way. There was a perfect amount of sauce to coat the dough, I had exactly enough. I didn't use any raisins but instead used 1/2 cup of pecans. Very enjoyable, thanks.

Hot Scotch Cocoa

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2004
This makes the BEST hot chocolate! The schnapps adds just a hint of flavor but I couldn't taste the alcohol at all (which I really liked) but if you like it stronger, add an extra ounce of schnapps. I used skim milk and it was very creamy. For the best presentation, definitely put some whipped cream on top.

Electric Strawberry

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2004
We really loved this. It tasted like strawberry milk, we couldn't even detect the alcohol in it. It was great as it was, but if I were in the mood for a stronger drink, I might add an additional ounce of the schnapps or maybe even Vanilla Twist or Baha Rosa.

Buttercup

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2004
I used skim milk in place of the light cream to save on the fat and calories and it was great! I made it in a cocktail shaker and served it in a martini glass. Will definitely make it again. Thanks.

Slippery Nipples

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
Very good and easy to drink. We didn't really like that it was at room temperature though. Next time we will use 1 and 1/2 ounces of each liqueur shaken in a cocktail shaker with ice and served in a martini glass.

Chocolate Martini II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
This is a great chocolate martini. They usually have vodka instead of the butterscotch schnapps, but I love the butterscotch taste. It was a bit sweet but that didn't bother me.

Marinated Rosemary Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
I did this for 8 minutes on my George Foreman grill. I loved the rosemary flavor but found the lemon taste a bit strong. It might be because I marinated for almost 24 hours. I also found that it needed salt (and I rarely add salt to any meal after it's cooked).

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2004
Unfortunately I didn't have any blueberries but decided to try this recipe anyway. Aside from leaving out the blueberries, I used 1/2 cup of coconut in place of the walnuts (my husband likes coconut better), added a tbsp of poppy seeds, and also an additional tbsp of fresh lemon juice to the batter. (I used the zest from two lemons and the juice from one lemon) It took 70 minutes to bake. I had no problems at all with it sticking to the pan. It was so good this way, but I still can't wait to try it with the blueberries next time.

Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2004
This was our first time trying a strawberry margarita. We love the original lime ones that we've tried from this site, but we didn't like these. They tasted a little too watery/icy with not enough flavor. It was so thick it didn't pour well into the glasses and was very difficult to drink even with a wide straw. I wasn't crazy about all the little seeds from the strawberries in it either. Disappointing.

B-52

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2004
Very yummy. I mixed it in a cocktail shaker with ice and served it in a martini glass. I think next time I might try it the same way but add some banana liqueur and garnish with chocolate shavings.

Fried Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2004
This was one of the best desserts I have ever made. I made "bowls" out of small flour tortillas by pushing the centers of them slightly down into muffin tins and spacing them out so they weren't touching. Then I sprayed them with cooking spray, and baked them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes (when the edges started to brown). They held their shape and didn't crack. We enjoyed eating "the bowls" as much as the ice cream! I topped them with caramel sauce, whipped cream and a cherry. I will make this very often!

Yummy Peanut Butter Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2004
I'm surprised at how much sugar/honey there was in this recipe. I might cut down a bit next time because it rose so high it was pressed against the window of my bread machine. It had a very subtle peanut butter taste when I first took it out of the bread machine but when I toasted it the next day, it tasted very much like regular white bread. It was tasty though.

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2004
Great recipe. I took the advice of the previous reviewer and used 1.5 tbsp of poppy seeds in place of the nuts. I would continue to do that in the future. This cake really needs the glaze to taste lemony. If I were to make it without the glaze, I would have to add some lemon extract to the batter.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2004
This was a great way to make fajitas, I never thought to bbq a flank steak before. I marinated the meat for 48 hours (and added some slices of sweet onion, red and yellow pepper to the marinade an hour before I was ready to grill). We put the vegetables in tin foil and cooked them on the bbq as well (they took longer than the steak which we cooked to medium) We sliced the meat into thin strips with an electric knife and served with the vegetables, tortillas, cheese, sour cream, salsa, and guacamole. They were awesome!!!

Margaritas

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2004
These margaritas are the best I've ever made, and I've tried many recipes. Make sure you put ice right to the top of the blender or else the limeade will make it taste too bitter. Also make sure you blend it long enough so that it's more of a slushy constistency than snow cone consistency. And to serve, use a margarita glass, cut a lime in half and run the cut part over the edge of the glass, then dip the rim in salt and garnish with half a lime slice. Perfection.
