Juicy Grilled Corn On The Cob

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Don't know if it's a typo but there is way too much sugar and salt called for in this recipe.

Best Baked French Fries

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2013
I make baked fries all the time minus the sugar. Sugar is not needed to crisp them, a rinse of cold water then blotting them dry before tossing them in the bag is all that is needed. A bit of parmesan & paprika, regular or hot, added to the granulated garlic, salt & pepper is a nice change from the norm as well.

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
I make this quite often but use olive oil with freshly chopped garlic, kosher salt & cracked white or black pepper & a good sized bunch of chiffonade basil in place of bottled dressing. No red onion as my family dislikes onion, but I'd use it if it was just myself. I let my tomato mixture sit for an hour so the flavors will blend nicely. A topping of freshly grated parmesan or asiago (a family fave) and you've got a wonderful dish liked by all. It's also very good with grilled chicken breast sliced thinly & arranged nicely on top of each serving.

Fresh Panko

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
This is more of a plain bread crumb but shredded instead of processed to a fine crumb. Panko white, is made with no crusts, panko brown is made with the crust included. Both white and brown panko have the addition of a sweetener which gives them a completely different flavor that plain bread crumbs.

Cucumber and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
Not enough flavor, (seasoning) as is, plus the amount of red vinegar called for was too much, it was very overpowering. Did a bit of altering until it was more to our liking. Added a few pinches of kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, a pinch of sugar, used kalamanto olives from the local deli (dislike canned olive) cut back on the amount of red wine vinegar, and added a glug of olive oil.

French Onion Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I gave this recipe a shot, as the use of cream cheese was intriguing. But I can honestly say, we found this dip way to thick, and the onion soup mix flavor was too overpowering. This recipe needs something else, fresh herbs perhaps, to make it more palatable.

Caesar Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Sorry, but we didn't like this at all. It's not really a caesar vinaigrette/dressing per se, there's no taste to suggest it would enhance a Caesar salad, save for the freshly grated parmesan. This is a vinaigrette that would be more suitable for a regular green salad, but, with far less oil. I should have picked up on the excess oil when mixing the dressing and reduced it accordingly, but unfortunately, I followed the recipe exactly.

Egg in a Hole

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Been making this with homemade cheese bread for years. Always a hit with family & friends. Have to say the featured photo with raw eggs & untoasted bread, is a bit offputting. A photo of the finished dish would be more appropriate.

Welfare Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
This recipe dates back to the war/depression era, when eggs & dairy were rationed, or, in limited supply. The name of this recipe was plentiful back then. War Cake, Depression cake, Eggless butterless cake, Three hole chocolate cake, Chocolate oil cake, etc. Not once in that time was this recipe ever called, "Welfare cake" Re-naming this recipe Welfare cake is degrading to the many families & single mothers who have had to resort to welfare to get by. Being on welfare is embarrassing for a great many people. Having recipes labelled "welfare recipe" only adds to that embarrassment.

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
A scant tablespoon oil in our Tzatziki, no vinegar, only freshly squeezed lemon juice in ours as well. The grated cucumber should be set in a strainer lined with cheesecloth to remove the excess water, unless, you're not particular about serving runny Tzatziki. A sidenote. Ever since we had a serious food poisoning outbreak in our area from pesticide coated english cucumbers, any cukes I do not grow in my own garden, are always peeled.

Authentic Mexican Tortillas

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
Shortening amount is excessive for an "authentic" tortilla. My family emjoys Mexican fillings wrapped in a tasty tortilla, not pie pastry.

Omu rice needs approx. 2 tablespoons ketchup. 1 cup ketchup is overkill.

Irish Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
This is a typical German eggs recipe, aka, Hoppel Poppel. Can't say as I've ever seen it referred to as Irish eggs.

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
This recipe dates back to the depression & war years, when eggs, butter & milk were rationed. You could find the recipe in government issued recipe booklets with suggestions on how to cook & bake without eggs & dairy. The cake was known as Whacky cake, Depression cake, Eggless Butterless Chocolate cake, One Pan Chocolate Cake, Three Hole Chocolate cake, & a slew of other quirky nicknames it garnered throughout the years, but this is the first time I've seen it referred to as Chocolate Oil Cake! This is a good basic chocolate cake recipe & without fail, it'll be moist everytime you make it. I can assure you though, from years of baking this cake & the fact it calls for vinegar & soda for levening, you will receive a mixture of positive & negative feedback comments such as: 'I love this cake' ... 'this cake tastes great' .... 'This cake is wonderful!' .... Or: 'Eww, I don't like this cake'... 'What's wrong with this cake?' 'Why does this cake taste funny?'... Happy Baking!! : )

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
Recipe was tasty as originally written, so don't quite understand why the contributer felt a need to add an additional comment, stating her recipe would be ruined if course pepper was used? I used course pepper (it's the only kind I buy) and it was perfectly fine.
