Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
we could NOT stop gushing and oooohing and ahhhhhing & sighing over these... these were out of this world. BOXED AUNT JEMIMA NO MORE! & of course, real non-corn-syrup maple syrup! i added ripe fresh blueberries. i CAN not wait to make this again! not tooo time consuming. obviously takes longer than boxed lazy kind but theyre worth it, trust me. that lost 15 mins of sleep: who cares! p.s i froze leftover buttermilk.. the only thing i can use it for is biscuits (im horrible at them btw) & pancakes.. so this vital ingredient will always be on hand!

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
O M G this is a phenomenal dessert! i URGE you to not buy prepared frosting & adding mint extract... making the real deal is easy ( i mean,youre already knee deep in fresh dessert mode so why stop now?) & worth it.. tip: i used mint extract & heavy whipping cream instead of the milk trick when making the mint frosting. yes, this will take a day (you need to fridge the minted brownies so they'll semi -harden) i made this xmas eve day (amongst my other cooking-- yes im crazy!) for xmas day dinner & my family LOVED IT... i felt like super star chef! i will cherish this recipe forever!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
hmm not the BEST chocolate cake ive had. but the easiest! all the ingredients are kitchen staples & its very minimal cleanup. i cut back to 1.5 cups sugar (just to be healthy) but alas, this was a BAD idea.... (my hubby's comment: "hmmm..sugarless cake?" i also used non-fancy nestle cocoa powder & i brewed a tiny amount of kona coffee for my boiling water. the batter before adding the water was really clumpy & after i added the water, it was not super runny. not dry, not sticky sweet, but if youre craving chocolate & you want it fresh,here ya go! i'll make this again (w/ the 2 cups sugar..screw my health)

Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
minus 1 star for the puzzling omission of lemon zest & including lemon yogurt & eggbeaters in the ingredients. i used plain greek yogurt & 2 real eggs ; zested 2 lemons (add some pith also to heighten the lemon taste) & fresh lemon juice . made some raspberry compote & voila, my bf's favorite kind of dessert was born! easy & very tasty & inexpensive

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
for 2people i bought a 3.5 lb bone in beef pot roast (which was on sale at my local vons for a little over $10 total price) & my hubby & i ate the whole darn thing (our maltipoo had the bones;) . remember there will be a lot of fat at the end! i followed to a T .. i added thickly sliced parsnips & subbed beef broth. yes, a fantastic gravy can be made w/cornstarch.. serve w/ mashed taters.. & youve got a top notch dinner!

Chocolate Walnut Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
I did not care for this recipe. these were not brownies at all. i should have known better: cocoa powder & water does not make fudgy chocolaty brownies. i followed the recipe to a T & i ended up w/ 1/8 inch thick butter nut thingamajigs

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
hmmm hmmm this was delicious! i followed the recipe to a T however, i honestly not for 1 second considered using pimientos. (i'll save those for my martinis;) i sauteed red bell pepper instead. AND i added crumbled up bacon! hmm. hmmmm. the bacon & fresh basil were the stars in this dinner! tip: strain the drippings. i actually could only use a tbspn or so. cuz the drippings were too burnt for my liking..

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
O M G this was the BEST tortilla soup ive ever had & my hubby declared this the best soup overall hes ever had! this was so easy to make. & it cost less than $ 5 to make. i followed the recipe to a T except... i added 1 lb of raw boneless chix thighs & 2 raw corn on the cobs, cut in half. after 3 hrs, the chix was shredded & dumped back in. honestly, all i had to do was buy the meat, unwrap it when i got home & plop it in the crockpot. it would taken more time & energy to open a can of chicken &/or boil chicken & cut it. i served this w/ avocado, monterey jack cheese, lime , cilantro & freshly fried tortilla strips. man, those strips were the cherry on top. i will forever make this . & i think i found ONE reason to look forward to the fall/winter months...

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
OMG this was SO delicious & my husband could not stop smacking & licking his lips.... HOWEVER... it was too salty.(i even added 1 chopped peeled raw potato to the pot to try to de-salt it.) so next time, i'll add a couple of quick splashes of soy sauce (& i used low sodium by the way) rather than the recipe amount AND i will NOT salt the loin prior to cooking (HUGE mistake..) the stock & soysauce & onion soup mix ALL have salt.. so please do NOT salt the meat.. so this is what i did; i rubbed my 3 lb loin w/ salt , pepper, dried basil, celery seed/seasoning (not celery salt) & dried parsley. then i seared it quickly on all sides. then i placed it in the crock pot & added the stock, wine, soy sauce & onion rings on top of the meat & i pocketed raw garlic in slits on top.. high for 4.5 - 5 hrs. then i strained the liquid & added 2 full tbsp of starch & let that boil on the stove . & that made the MOST DELICIOUS gravy we have both EVER had in our lives. i served this w/ mashed potatoes (TIP: if you plan on mashed taters, do NOT salt the boiling water or the mashers themselves.. the gravy will be heavenly on a bed of soft plain ((well w/butter of course)) mashers.. i can NOT stress this enough). this dinner was just jaw dropping. trust me. i will forever use this recipe THANK YOU SO MUCH recipe poster :)

Apple-Rosemary Blue Cheese Bites

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
so delicious & easy to make. however, i did have to slice the apple wedges thinner. so for example, 1 gala gave me 20 or so slices. & next time i will use granny smith instead. & alot more rosemary! this ones a keeper. oh, & p.s.... its not too blue cheesy for those of you who are not blue cheese lovers..

Homemade Tomato Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
hmmmmm... this was not what i expected AT ALL.. i followed the recipe to a T.. except i substituted merlot. my hubby was not pleased w/this. he said it was too sweet & cinammon-y. he had to take over by adding practically every spice in the house, thinning it out w/ watter ( even though i insisted he used chicken stock) & smashing it w/ a bean/ potato masher. this was too thick, chuncky for pasta. it was like stewed tomatos texture. i will never make this again!

Slow Cooker Chicken Mole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
this was so delicious i could not believe i made this !! i followed the recepipe to a T however i diced up 2 chipotle peppers & used 1 whole "abuelita" chocolate disk (mexican hot chocolate found in the ethnic aisle of youre local grocer).. ps , if youre debating the peanut butter part, dont hesitate.. my mexican grandmother also used p.b in her mole.. i actually used chicken boneless thighs ( breasts dry out )& threw in 2 drumsticks & the meat fell off the bone sparkling clean... i served this w/frijoles, white rice & avocado & cilantro garnish.... i will use this recipe forever!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
o my lord. these came out brown, dull & hard! i followed the recipe to a T EXCEPT i added 1/2 tsp of baking soda & i used 1/4 cup of buttermilk & 2/3 cup of non fat milk. i also used butter in stead of shortening. i did, however, have the oven to 350. & therefore left these in the oven for 15+ mins. is that where i went wrong?

Southern Spicy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
LEAVE THE SKIN ON THE CHICKEN! dont do what i did (trim the skin off the chicken; i did it w/o thinking as i always de-skin chicken ) i followed this to a T .. however, i added raw garlic & onion to the buttermik bath & soaked the chicken in it for 4 hrs. i did not use hot sauce or garlic powder . & i added creole seasoning to the flour . (which i put in a ziploc & shimmy shook the chicken in that ) i also let the coated chicken peices "paste" in the coating before frying. i used a cast iron pan & filled it 1/3 w/veg oil. i only turned the chicken ONCE. & that was after 10-15 mins of frying on the 1st side. this was THE BEST , JUICIEST fried chicken ive ever made!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
delicious. i followed the reciped to a T except, i used an entire packet of taco mix. i just coated all 3 breasts thoroughly w/ it. i can imagine if i had only used 4 tsps, the chicken would not have been as flavorful.

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
O M G these were so juicy & flavorful. plus crispy from baking them on a foil lined sheet! leftovers (days later) & theyre still juicy! i did use 1 egg, & heads up: the herb/garlic cheese spread is found in the gourmet cheese island in the deli section of my local ralphs. however, next time, im using regular spread ( too garlicky for my tastes). who woulda known ground chix had this in them ?

Easy Chicken Cutlets with Apples

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
hmmm i must've done something wrong even though i followed the recipe to a T. i did however, skip the sherry & marsala. & used chardonnay instead.. hmm. it was just flavorless! plus when the chix was done, there was NO sauce left: the apples had stuck to the pan. :(
