Easy Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
This is the perfect lemonade! It wasn't too sweet, which I liked, but it wasn't too tart. I only made about two servings, so I didn't measure out the ingredients. I used the juice of 1 and 1/2 lemons and roughly 1/2 cup sugar and 3/4 cup water. Delicious!

Smoked Turkey

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
I really liked this recipe! But I had a problem with my smoker, which wasn't getting hot enough, so six hours into the smoking, I transferred the turkey to the oven and finished cooking it at 400 degrees for 1 hour. It was very good, but I recommend adding turkey gravy for flavor.

Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
I have never broiled anything n my life, so I thought I would try it along with it was my first time cooking scallops. I recommend adding a lot more seasonings to the scallops because they are pretty bland with just the lemon and salt and butter. And they weren't cooking very nicely in the broiler, so I moved them to a saute pan for a few minutes. They were pretty good.

Baked Soy Lemon Chops

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
From reading other reviews, I thought I would also find it too salty, so I used 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce and 1/4 cup water. Actually, the end result ended up not salty enough, so I recommend using 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce.

All-Bran Blueberry Peach Crumble

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This was only okay. I would like the blueberries to stick to the peaches, and be a little less runny. But other than that, pretty good.

Strawberry Tarts

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
I loved this recipe! However, I found it difficult to find prepared tart shells, so I had to bake my own. The glaze was incredible and the strawberries were the perfect compliment!

Cucumber Salad I

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This was pretty good. I made a few alterations by adding halved cherry tomatoes and freshly chopped mint. I also used red wine vinegar because that's what I had on hand. It was delicious and very refreshing.....will be making this again.

Harvest Yams

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Even though these were good, they took WAY longer than 25 minutes to cook. They took more like 45 minutes to cook. I suggest cooking them longer than what the recipe states. And I did not have nutmeg, so I used ginger. They were pretty good.

Balsamic Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
This was a great recipe! I didn't have any blue cheese, so I didn't use it. I thought the end result was a bit mild, so I added some lemon juice, and it was GREAT! I wish I had had that cheese, though. I think it would've given it a much richer flavor.

Swanson® Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
I loooove this potatoes! They're absolutely heavenly! The only thing was that I found 'light cream' hard to find, so I ended up using whipping cream. Delicious! I also recommend adding a dash of garlic powder, and a tablespoon salt.

I LOVE this recipe! I made it for my dad and my uncle and it was a huge hit! I didn't use sport peppers though, I used pepperoncinis, but other than that, very successful!

Wildfire Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
This is the best pulled pork recipe I have ever had! The only changes I made were using chicken broth instead of water and using KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce instead of the Wildfire sauce. AMAZING!!!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This was pretty good, but I can't give it 5 stars because there was hardly any sauce. The sauce that was put on there drained right to the bottom and left the broccoli damp and tasteless with the cashews. I recommend adding more sauce.

Gnocchi Bake

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This recipe is absolutely delicious! This was my first time cooking gnocchi, and thought this looked good. Was it ever! I tasted the gnocchi after cooking it, and was surprised at how bland it was. I was hoping it wouldn't be so bland after I mixed it with the sauce and cheese and sausage. It turned out brilliantly! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Pork Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
I didn't like this recipe. I didn't have pork, so I used beef, and I added onion powder and garlic powder. They turned out mushy, and I believe it was from the bread. So I recommend omitting the bread.

Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011

Gingered Pears

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This is an AMAZING recipe! I did make a few minor changes: I didn't peel the pears because I didn't have a peeler, and then I took advice from other reviewers and added some slices of fresh ginger in the second half of cooking. It was sooo good! I did find that it took less than 25 minutes to cook, more like 10. Other than that, verrrry good!

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Even though this had great mint flavor, it didn't quite work out. This was my first time using the ice cream maker, so I was a little confused how this recipe was described. I added the chocolate chips when there were 10 minutes left in the freezing, and when I transfered it to a bowl to freeze, all the chocolate chips sank to the bottom of the container. And it also didn't have the right consistency I was looking for after two hours. I don't think I'll be making this again.
