Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: May 2, 2014
I don't know why I waited so long to make this - it was simply wonderful. I brushed tortillas with butter then sprinkled with cinn/sugar mix (note to self: cut smaller - I cut each tortilla into 8 pieces - they were too big. Next time do strips). Also could have let baked another minute or too...used fruit I had on hand (granny smith apple, strawberries, and blueberries along with strawberry jam). So light and refreshing. Would be great on a camping trip.

Cajun Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
I don't like pork roasts very much ... and I have to admit DH went and poured BBQ sauce over the roast about a half hour before it was done (he thought I forgot to add it) ... but this was definitely good. I simply rubbed the roast with olive oil and massaged the herbs and spices into it and down into the cracks. Then placed the roast on a bed of carrots, celery and onion; drizzled more olive oil over all, and baked at 450 for 10" then about an hour at 300 (did not cover). Meat was nice and moist with a great kick ... but it was the roasted veggies that did it for me. I wish I had used 3 or 4 whole carrots - they were SO good. Will make again and many thanks for recipe.

French Bread with the Kitchen Aid

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2014
Baking Nana, you are da bomb! Only change was to cut kosher salt down to 1 1/2 tsp as we're watching sodium and I was a little worried about using a full tablespoon. Other than that, made exactly as recipe stated. I made the 2 loaves - both of which rose beautifully and resulted in a tender, moist product with a crusty exterior (I used a spray bottle to mist sides). This was a snap to make - dough was lovely and just on the soft and sticky side, but easy to work with.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto (no nuts)

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2014
Oh Yum! I was out of sun dried tomatoes, so I simply roasted some diced tomatoes and garlic and then proceeded with rest of recipe. Bursting with freshness - simply delicious over toasted homemade baguette slices. Oh - I did throw in a dash of balsamic vinegar. Thank you so much for recipe.

Crispy and Tender Baked Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
So sorry - we wanted to like it, but not to our tastes at all. Made exactly as directed - chicken was done (overdone actually) at 50" - at even though I was quite careful to remove as much fat as possible prior to cooking, you just can't get it all off - so they were greasy on the bottom. The ingredients in the rub seemed as though they would work, but there was just something *off* with the finished product. Thank you anyway for recipe.

Sinfully Delightful Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
Ye gods, this truly was delicious. I used Ghirardelli 60% dark chocolate chips. Disgustingly rich and simply delightful. Will probably cut dark chocolate chips down to half a cup next time. Not because it's bad ... but just to tame calories a bit. If the program I used is correct, as made, one prepared drink is about 300 calories ... but hey - it's a GREAT 300 calorie drink (grin).

ATK Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
How simple and yet how wonderful! I never would have thought to add strawberry jam (much less salt) to my berries. The bit of lemon gave a needed freshness and the melted jam formed into a beautiful shiny glaze on the berries. I did scale sugar back quite a bit as my berries were already sweet. Served on a lemon pound cake with dollop of fresh whipped cream.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
a) terribly time consuming to make and b) hash browns were soggyish in the middle.

Martha Stewart Mini Blackberry Pies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2014
Rating in part. Used a different Martha Stewart pie crust recipe and used apples w/cinnamon & sugar instead of berries; but the baking method for the hand pies is perfect. Much easier than the silly tart cutter I have (which had a very poor filling to crust ratio). This method is quick, simple, and easy. Will definitely use again.

Naan

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2014
These were interesting - I've never had Naan bread before so I've really nothing to base it off of. Mine turned out like a cross between pita bread and flour tortillas (grin) - but they were too thin to split like pita and too thick to fold around food and eat comfortably - so we just ripped and tore our way through them. In any event, they were a great change of pace and I'll definitely make again.

Perfect Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
Oh yeah, baby ... I could drink this all day. Made a quarter batch using 4oz coffee (half decaf/half strong dark roast). and 2 quarts water. A bit messy = but then again it was 3am and I was stumbling a bit and out of cheesecloth so just used coffee filters to strain. Used crushed ice, a splash of 2%, and then a squirt of chocolate syrup (my bad). Delicious!

Air/Fabric Freshener

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
Wow! I just happened to have some Fresh Linen concentrated oil so I thought I'd give it a try. Took me all of 2 minutes to put it all together and I simply love it! So light and fresh - and so much easier on the wallet. Thank you, bren!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
just didn't care for it. Much prefer the sauce just as it was (prior to adding vodka & cream). So sorry ... but will definitely make the basic sauce again :)

Chef John's Empty Mayo Jar Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2014
Brilliant. I'm accustomed to adding mayo and/or sour cream to salad dressings when I'm in the mood for something creamier ... but for the life of me I never thought to simply transfer them to the mayo jar. Thanks so much!

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
These are really good and I'm fairly certain the kids will enjoy them (I sure did). Have only had warm, so not sure how caramel will be when eaten cold. Halved recipe and made as instructed with only exceptions being to add 1/4 tsp salt and using coffee extract instead of vanilla. Came out with exactly 24 cookies, none of which leaked. Dough is quite sticky but dusting fingers and palm with cocoa powder took care of that. My cookies stayed pretty much as placed on the sheet - didn't spread out - and as I used Rolo candies that had a nice puffy exterior with the creamy melted chocolate interior. Will make again.

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
NUMMY NUMMY NUM! Made half recipe (still came out with 6 full cups) - only change was to add a little garlic and scale cheese down by a third (dietary restrictions) - also used 2/3rd Velveeta and 1/3 cheddar after pureeing the soup a bit for a slightly smoother texture. Fantastic recipe - thanks so much :)
