Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Kebabs

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2002
Very good! I doubled the marinade and used made kabobs of mushrooms, red onion, and bell pepper. Two suggestions....a tad less pepper, maybe only 1 1/2 was very peppery. Also, if you marinate veggies, I wouldn't marinate mushrooms too long....mine absorbed the marinade like a sponge and were very lemony although the other veggies were not. Will be making this often!

Streusel Apple Coffeecake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2003
This was fantastic. A food proccessor makes the job of making the crumb mixture extremely fast and easy. The only problem I had was I think there was too much batter. My coffee cake filled the bundt pan right to the top and then some of the filling oozed out and didn't smell to pretty on the bottom of the stove. Also, after I had mixed the flour mixture in, I realized I had only used had used 12 ounces of yogurt (2 6 oz containers...i thought they were 8 oz each). So I added a little sour cream and made sure to mix really well. It turned out awesome!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
Excellent! I added a little nutmeg and ground cinnamon to the batter (didn't measure, just gave a couple shakes). I also added cinnamon chips to half the batter as one reviewer suggested. I did use more cinnamon in the strudel part, probably closer to 1/4 teaspoon (again, I just dumped). I added a little extra apple, maybe another 1/4-1/2 cup which I shredded. I did like having some chunks though as they seem to escape or something as they cook. You can taste but can't see! :). Anyhow these were excellent!

Insalata Caprese II

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
Very good! I added sliced black olives to mine. I also added balsamic vinegar (same amount as oil). The only thing I would change is to maybe let the cheese sit in the oil, vinegar, basil mixture a little bit to soak up some of the flavor.

Three-Berry Lemon Trifle

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
I made this for my mom's bunco club and they went nuts for it. I used the juice of one lemon and the zest of one lemon instead of measuring. If you are worried about the lemon flavor you could probably either use plain yogurt or use half as much lemon juice, but we thought it was great as it was. I made this about 12 hours before I wanted to serve it, would be fine overnight.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: May 19, 2002
This recipe is great. I used spiced rum and babyback ribs. It turned out wonderful! The sauce burns pretty quickly though, so becareful how much you put on at once. Although it was not quick, i still gave 5 stars in that category because that fact was known ahead of time.

Mediterranean Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2003
Sounds delicious. Where do I get a recipe for the salad dressing, or what brand do you use? I have never seen this. Thanks!

Grilled Teriyaki Tuna

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2002
Sounds delicious, but at over 40 g of fat per serving, I will take everyone's word for it. I would have to be out of my mind to try this...there are ways to eat tuna that are much healthier!

Potato Pouches

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2002
My boyfriend and I loved this dish....very tasty. I like this recipe because it offers lots of options by changing vegetables and spices. The changes I made were rather simple....I added an entire sliced up zucchini an entire sliced up summer squash. Then I doubled the amount of spices and butter. Finally, there is no really no need to make individual pouches, just get a Reynold's Wrap Hot Bag and put it all in one. The only thing I would do differently next time is to cut the potatoes smaller so I could decrease the cooking time as the squash and zucchini cook quickly. I think next time I am going to throw some whole mushrooms in there as well and maybe some parmesan cheese. I can't wait!

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2003
Oh, how I wish there was an option of 10 stars! This recipe is awesome! It is extremely easy as well. I made one late the other night and the next day while I was at work my mom had the first piece. She called me up and said, "Angela, don't ever make this again!...I can't stop eating it. This is the best carrot cake I've ever had.". And believe me, if anybody knows carrot cake, its my mom, its her favorite. Then, I made another for work, and one guy just raved about it. I can't tell you how many compliments this cake gets. And its sooo easy. The batter is ready in 10 minutes (15 if you grate the carrots by hand). Cooking time was right on. It even came out well in one of those cheap alluminun pans you get for like $1.50 at the grocery store. The only thing I changed was I used a 20 ounce can of pineapple in its own juice(although I didn't realize until after the fact, it came out so well, I will continue to use this size). Also, the frosting was delicious, but I used one batch of frosting for both cakes, so if you only make one, start with half the recipe for frosting.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
Very good. I used 4 pork chops with the bone in and doubled the sauce. I was a little skeptical of the coating after reading the reviews, so I used coating on two of the pork chops and the other two I just seasoned and floured them. Both turned out really well. The sauce seemed a little rich to me (my boyfriend LOVED it). I think maybe adding a little water to it may help next time. Overall, great recipe!

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2002
My boyfriend loved this recipe. It was WAY to much pepper for my taste...I reduced the amount to 1/4 instead of 1 1/4. Also, I quadrupled the sauce. Very good.

BBQ Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
This was is awesome stuff! I mixed all ingredients together, added hard boiled eggs, monterry jack cheese, and romaine lettuce, and then used the mayo/bbq (I used Bob Evans Wildfire BBQ sauce) mixutre as a salad dressing. To make matters simpler, instead of cooking the chicken and cutting up I used Louis Rich grilled chicken strips. YUMMY!

B.L.T. Salad with Basil Mayo Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2003
This recipe is awesome! I am on a low-carb diet so I didn't add the croutons. Although I will say that if I ever do add croutons, I will probably just buy some instead of making them myself. We added a little more bacon and cucumber slices that were quartered. At first it didn't look like enough dressing, but it was the perfect amount. I will probably make this recipe once a week.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2003
Very good! I did two things wrong....I was making two different recipes and the other one used ginger ale. I put ginger ale in this one by accident. I also read the recipe wrong and only used 1/2 of a two liter for each batch. I have never gotten so many compliments on a punch!! It was excellent. I froze mine in freezer bags, make sure you have enough time to freeze, I put mine in the freezer at about 6 o'clock at night and took them out at 12:30 pm the next day. One was just barely slushy and the other one hadn't started freezing yet. I'd probably freeze two days in advance.

Smothered Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2002
Very good flavor! I made the meatballs and then put them in a crockpot with the sauce for about 4 hrs. (I didn't add the sour cream until the last 1/2 hr.) The sauce was very rich, almost too rich, and a little thicker than I am used to. I think next time I will try less sour cream and possibly water instead of milk. Overall, excellent! boyfriend loved them.

Carol's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2002
This recipe tastes wonderful!...I can't wait to take it to work tommorrow. I agree that the 20 minutes is a little far fetched with all the chopping that is involved. But I judge a recipe mostly on taste, and this one was well worth the wait.

Baker's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
This recipe was really simple and worked great. I was actually trying to figure out what to do with the cake flour in my pantry anyhow (I bought too much for a recipe and that was the only recipe that I had that called for cake flour until now.) I doubled the recipe and made a wonderful apple pie with it. Note:After added the maximum amount of water, it will seem a little dry still and hard to hold together. This is O.K. Just mold it into a ball, wrap in saran and put in the fridge for 20 minutes. When I started rolling mine it basically fell apart and kept on breaking into little pies. Just keep rolling these pieces. They will come together. I rolled mine on wax paper for easier transfer to the pie plate. I put a little flour on my rolling pin when needed, but otherwise didn't add any extra flour. Great recipe! Great flavor! Only my 2nd attempt making crust and came out perfect. I will keep this recipe in my folders! I went back and made this recipe a second time and the dough came out really moist. Not dry at all like the first time. I have made 2 more pies since then and the dough always turns out moist. I think the first time when I doubled it I added too much flour or not enough butter/shortening, but this time it came out even better! So this recipe deserves 6 stars because it came out great even when I apparently messed it up! :)
