General Tao Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
This was just "okay". For being home cooked definitely not bad... but a Chinese restaurant's version is definitely much better! It had a weird twang which might of been from the ketchup. Also deep frying the chicken in the restaurants in MY opinion is a big part of the recipe. The sauce is more of what I had a problem with though... it just tasted... weird. Not horrible though! My husband ate everything on his plate... but he will also eat almost anything :-)

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I was not a fan of this pound cake. It wasn't near moist enough for me and I know I didn't over cook it. Flavor just wasn't that great either... and I even added a little vanilla extract.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
These were great! I did add a little chicken stock though per previous reviews and am glad I did! It cooked down great. I also shredded the chicken an hour before serving and it soaked up all the juices great!!!

Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
These are FABULOUS tasting and EASY!! I made a glaze similar to what you would put on cinnamon rolls and drizzled it over the turnovers... SUPER YUMMY! I am looking forwarding to making peach ones this next summer!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I also doubled the apples and chopped them super small. They were a huge hit with my husband and family... but just "okay" to me. There is another blueberry strudel muffin recipe on this site that I thought was much more moist and would do great by substituting the blueberry with apples. I personally would give it 3 stars... but since I got such rave reviews from the family... I will give it 4.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I also lowered the amount of cloves and upped the cinnamon. I probably put 2 table spoons of cinnamon! But I also love cinnamon :-). I thought this bread was pretty good! Just wish it would have been a little more moist.

Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
THESE WERE FABULOUS! I did NOT make the sauce though. We were serving them with a red wine balsamic glaze steak recipe from this site... so we just used that glaze to drizzle over the green beans and MAN was it good!!!!!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
We tripled this glaze recipe, added 2 table spoons of brown sugar and a little corn starch to thicken it..... and WOW is all I can say. We ended up serving it over some KC strip steaks, red garlic mashed potatoes, and bacon rapped green beans and WOW WOW WOW. One of my favorite meals I have ever made!!!! I can't wait to make this again!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Definitely not bad! I can see what a previous poster meant by a "froot loop" taste though. Like I said though... not bad! Taste alone this deserves 3 stars... but I really like the appearance of them... so I gave it a 4 out of 5!

Crab Rangoon III

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
D-E-L-I-S-H! They were done in 2 minutes for us... 3 minutes was a tad bit too long for cooking. I also added green onions and more garlic powder.... YUM YUM YUM! These were restaurant worthy!

Oatmeal Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
DELICIOUS! I took a previous poster's advice and did 1/2 c shortening, 1 regular-sized jar of marshmellow fluff, 1/3 c powdered sugar and 3 tsp of hot water for the icing. I also cooked the cookies for 9 minutes so they were chewy. YUM YUM YUM!!!

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I to added more noodles! Probably like 12 oz. I also did the frozen veggies which made this recipe super easy. I did add some garlic and and onion to my veggies though and seasoned the chicken and veggie mixture with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and more soy sauce. YUMMY! Definitely will make again.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Very good! I did not use mushrooms or green peppers because of personal preference. I also ended up having to cut my chicken into strips after 8 minutes in the skillet to speed up the cooking process. If I hadn't of done that it would have taken forever to cook.

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
Very good! A lot cheaper than buying a cajun seasoning too! I had everything but onion powder... so I omitted that. I also added a teaspoon on red pepper (what can I say.... we like it hot)... yum yum yum!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Okay I was NOT a fan. I will admit that I didn't have dry mustard so I had to use prepared mustard. But surely it wouldn't of altered the recipe THAT MUCH. These potatoes didn't have near enough taste for me and they didn't have a good aroma while cooking... AT ALL. I won't make again. I am sticking to my standby roasted red potato recipe... an onion packet of soup and olive oil... simple and much tastier!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
This was a good START to an awesome recipe. It needs seasoning. I added ground mustard and garlic powder and that definitely helped it!
