Banana Cake IX

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
DELICIOUS!!! I specifically chose this recipe because it is DAIRY FREE! I am so glad such a wonderful recipe qualifies, as the good ones are hard to come by! I used 2 cups of all purpose flour in place of the cake flour, and used oil in place of the shortening. I also mixed by hand, rather than with an electric mixer, as I find leaving the chunks a bit bigger leave more "interest" in the cake. Cake came out sooo yummy, and beautifully moist! I will definitely be making again, this may become my staple recipe for all those "dead" bananas we don't eat in time! Next time I make it, I plan on adding even more bananas than the three called for. I think it could only add to this wonderful recipe. :)

Crispy Catfish

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I'm not a fish-eater, so this is from my husband's feedback. He said it was "good, but not 'restaurant-good'." So that equals about three stars in my book. I used Ritz-type crackers instead of saltines, and used the seasoning salt and celery salt. Added garlic powder instead of salt, there was just too many "salts" listed in this recipe in my judgment. I also soaked the fish in milk several hours before cooking, left out dipping them in oil (since they were already wet from the milk), and pan fried them instead of grilled. :)

Spoiled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
My grandmother's recipe for BBQ sauce is very similar, so I used hers. The method promoted by this recipe is stellar... boiling then broiling ensures a very tender meat. I used country ribs, rather than the bone-in baby backs, just cutting down on the initial boiling time a bit, and they came out delightful. :) Will be making this one time and time again.

Virginia Clise Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
These are dense, and quite bland. But oddly, the taste grows on you after that first bite... I think this might be better toasted, after being made in a loaf perhaps...

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Eh... Neat to know that you can do it this way in case of a real popcorn craving, but it tastes about the same as air popped, not as good as "real" microwaved popcorn...

Apple, Carrot, Or Zucchini Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I halved the recipe, and used 1 cup of grated zucchini and 1 cup of grated apple. (1 small zucchini and 1 small apple.) in a square casserole dish. It came out yummy, and beautifully moist. Like the other reviewers have stated, the batter comes out oddly dry and crumbly until the zucchini is added, but that takes care of it, and no extra ingredients are needed. Will be making this one again, so easy and delicious!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
I made this before reading reviews, and while the dough rolls out real well, the taste does not "wow." Now that I've read the reviews, I will be adding more sugar/vanilla next time I make, perhaps even a pinch of cinnamon to help perk these up.

Quick, Homemade Hamburger Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Good!!!!! I left out the tomato sauce, added some seasoning salt, garlic, basil and oregano. I think it might've been a touch on the bland side without the spices, but this is a keeper now!

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Chicken came out good! Thanks to a liberal drizzling of honey over to top of the chicken breasts because I wasn't gutsy enough to try this as written... and I'm usually a vinegar lover! The vinegar and garlic combination smelled heavenly as I was putting it into the oven, but there wasn't any taste any of that flavor left after it was done cooking... and the vinegar left sort of a metallic aftertaste that I didn't appreciate. I used 1/2 red wine and 1/2 cider vinegar. I won't be trying this again I don't think, chicken breasts are pretty hard to mess up and there are lots of better recipes out there just as easy.

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
Very good! I usually just plunk a pot roast in the crockpot and let it stew all day, but I wanted something a little more traditional this time around. Yum! It came out nice and tender, and with plenty of accompanying juices/gravy. Will be making again!!

Rosemary Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Delicious and easy! You can't go wrong here! I just rubbed garlic powder on along with the rosemary instead of cloves, and it came out yummy. Easy + yummy = KEEPER!

No-Fuss Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Good! My husband said this one was a keeper! I did think it was a bit obvious that it was stuffing mix in the meat... so if you like to keep your recipe secrets a mystery, this is NOT the one for you. Tastes good though! I topped mine with BBQ sauce rather than ketchup.

Tanya's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Recipe is good!!! Cookies come out soft and yummy. I'm not too sure about the chilling... it didn't seem to make much difference as far as stiffening the batter enough to roll them into balls. The batter was still sticky... next time I plan on just scooping like normal cookies, and not bothering with the rolling. Also, rolling the batter into the topping was pretty messy as well. It would be much easier/ prettier to just sprinkle the topping on, again like normal. This recipe is a keeper though!

Hearty Skillet Supper

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
To be honest, I didn't have very high expectations for this recipe. It did come out better than expected, and was a nice mid-week family meal. I left out the soy sauce, as I'm on a non-soy diet, and the results were still positive. :)

Baked Spaghetti with Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I did not care for this recipe. The chicken by itself would've been good, but the baked pasta was dry and just blah. I also thought the broccoli just didn't blend well tastewise at all. Won't be making this one again.

Santa Fe Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
Bland. I did omit the green chiles because I didn't have any on hand. This may have made the difference. So if there's a next time, I'll be adding some fajita spice, and probably using diced tomatoes with chilis, as I'm not much of a tomato paste lover anyway. The microwave approach was different, I've never made an entire dish in the microwave before. From that vantage, it came out better than expected.

Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
Is easy, but it is too sweet. I do like the fact that it doesn't include any eggs in the recipe. Don't know if I'll try it again, but if I do, I'll use much less honey.
