Amazing Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
These were very good but we did grill instead of deep-fry ours. The tastes were great!!

Broccoli Rabe with Portobello Mushroom

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
This had good flavors but the store didn't have very good broccoli rabe or any broccolini so I used what they had but I felt like it was lacking because of this. I will try again with some good rabe or broccolini next time as again I felt the flavor was good.

Banana Split Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
I made a pie for this since it is only hubby and I. The flavors were pretty good but I don't think I creamed the cheese enough as it was hard and messy to spread. I did think it was missing just a little something but not sure what that was. I'll go back and read other reviews to see if there are other changes I might want to make

Spicy Chili French Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I liked the way these tasted but have to work on getting the crisp just right. I think the temp needs to be higher so I'll try that but the taste is good.

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
These had a surprisingly good flavor. I wished I had made extra of the sauce but overall I found it to be a tasty different type of meatball.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Was a good easy way to cook the pork and with the right BBQ sauce it should be good (we had a sweeter kind in the house which is not normally our preferecne). I also have to turn my slow cooker up a notch or two otherwise it has to cook too long (not the recipe's fault).

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
The cooking method is what is important here - you can use anything on the ribs - sauce, dry rub whatever but they are really moist and tender cooking this way.

Garlic Steak with Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
This is a tough one for me to rate and I'll tell you why. I've tried this recipe exact as it is a few times now and for some reason, I don't seem to get a good garlic taste from the marinated meat itself (have used a few different cuts as well). While I can add some of the garlic oil as directed at the end, which makes it tastes better, it seems like the marinating is extra work for not enough payback. I would prefer to cook a good steak and add some garlic butter to the top of it then go through all these steps. Having said all of this though, I LOVE this garlic oil for bread dipping. I have made it for that purpose and added herbs to it and it is amazing for that. So, I have given the recipe 4 stars because of that but I do think that others should try the full recipe version to see what they think.

Kicked Up Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
It seems like the taste is good but I'm not sure if it's me or the cheese used but I made this twice and it wasn't as creamy as I would have liked and actually broke down a little.

Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
The flavors just didn't work for us. It was nice to find a recipe that didn't have grapes and nuts but I'll have to try other seasonings for it to suit us.

Beef and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
My hubby is not too kean on store bought deli roast beef so I purposely bought a 4 lb prime rib and cooked it traditionally on Sunday with that being the Sunday meal for hubby and I. We made a bit extra ajus and save a good bit of the meat and ajus to make these sandwiches. On Tuesday I sliced the remaining meat as thin as I could and added to the ajus in a pan. I let it slow simmer for about 1/2 and hour and then assembled the sandwiches as per the recipe. They came out really good and was a nice change. Will make again but probably only when we do a rib as indicated above.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
A decent easy marinade. This is a good version for when you don't want a marinade whose flavors are too strong. It is a good subtle flavor that adds to the meat rather than becomes the flavor of the meat as with some other stronger marinades.

Caribbean Grilled Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I enjoyed the crab cakes but I had difficulty with the mango salsa as there was too much cilantro which may have been due to a small mango but will try again.

Jalapeno Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This was good but I used cheddar cheese instead of cream cheese since we have never liked that with our poppers. Next time I will include a bit more cheese and maybe use thicker bacon. I may also look altering the dressing or just using a good rub. Good recipe that can be modifier to one's taste.

Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
Well I had a bit of trouble with frying, removing, flattening and then re-frying. I'm not a co-ordinated person. BUT the plantains did come out good and made a nice side to the Puerto Rican meat patties we made from here. I gave it 4 stars only because for me, it is a lot of work.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
We liked these but we do not bake with the gravy but rather just use it as a sauce at the end. This leaves the chops a little crispier which is what we preferred. The flavors of everything is good as is for us.

Habanero Heat Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Loved the fl;avor for this but we used as a dipping type sauce fro grilled veggies that I made. I put it on a garden salad and the taste did not seem to work all that well so maybe a different type of salad would be better. I really did love it as the dipping sauce and willmake it again for that for sure.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Really good - will have to make as 2 individual servings for just hubby and I as it's not as good reheated but other than that it was great.
