Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
We weren't blown away by this recipe - the herb rub was just ok, i guess... i've definitely had better. And the cooking time was way off for us - I used a 2 1/2 lb roast that was just under 3" thick and when i went to check it at 40 minutes, it was way overdone!

Cornmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
"Simply" Delicious! I made the recipe exactly as it says - except for the raisins, i cut those out completely. These tasted like cornmeal shortbread. I love the slight crunchiness, too. Btw, the recipe doesn't specify, so i used finely ground cornmeal - after tasting the finished product, i would assume that's what the author wants you to use.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Awesome! after reading the reviews and then the reply by the original author, I decided to keep the original recipe exactly as-is except for one thing - i put 1/2 cup fresh grated parmigiano in the mix and the other 1/2 cup added to 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs and then spread on the top. i warmed the dip up in the microwave and then put it in my toaster oven to lightly toast the topping. I'm glad i didn't heat it the whole time in the oven or the topping would have become too toasted or even burned. Also, i would recommend using a shallow dish to heat/serve if you use this amount of breadcrumb mix so the proportion of dip to topping is better. I was skeptical about using the parmigiano, like one of the reviewers said - cheddar or jack seem more appropriate but the flavor mix was really great. I also took the author's recommendation to double the jalapenos if you want a little more heat. It ended up comfortably warm, no one thought it was too much. (by the way, i used 'pickled' jalapeno slices that i chopped up - nice tangy heat)

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Let me just say first that i realize this review isn't entirely fair... When i try a new recipe, i try to stay with how the author intended it to be - just for the first time and then i tweek it after. So, i stayed true to the recipe and it was good but i just couldn't get past the chicken broth (i'm a vegetarian but can on occassion deal with meat broth - not in this case, unfortunately). So, i decided to try again and use vegetable broth instead. Also, i tried a masala mix i had instead of the cumin and LOVED this! That's why i gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because, chicken broth aside, i much preferred it with the mixed spice blend than just the cumin. Overall, really wonderful and will be adding this to my list of favorites - my 3 year old even loved it!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
My husband and some friends went crazy for this recipe! (i'm a vegetarian, so i didn't eat any steak but i can tell you that marinade smelled amazing) I did cut half the basil because i thought that 4 1/2 tbsp dried herbs was a little heavy and dried basil gets overpowering, in my opinion. Also, i was in a hurry, so i didn't blend it, i just whipped it in a bowl and then put it in a ziploc with the steak. I massaged the steak and flipped the bag over every 20-30 minutes and everyone said it turned out great. I'll definitely make this again!

Apple Cake and Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
There's nothing amazing about this recipe, it's just a really good breakfast bread (like zucchini bread or banana bread). I like that it was a simple recipe so my daughter could help and cooking it in the pie pan was nice and easy, too. (not sure what's going on with the picture that goes with this recipe because clearly that's not the same shape) And we all loved the butter sauce but i agree with the others that it calls for way too much - i made a half-batch and i still had a lot left over.
