Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Pretty good marinade, I did tweek it a little. I used chinese cooking wine rather than vinegar and added about a teaspoon of chili garlic paste. Didn't make it too hot (i was a little worried!), kids didn't even know it was there but I could taste the flavor not the heat. Also, I only marinated for about 6 hrs, that was plenty.

Quick Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This was a pretty good meal. I changed a few things though: I added salt, not sugar to the onions. Then, I didn't have corn flakes so I used crushed Town House crackers. Also, I didn't have any cream cheese so I used 4 little "Laughing Cow" garlic & herb light cheese spread. Lastly, I put this in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. The kids didn't care for it though but they aren't casserole eaters to begin with.

Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Wow was this good! I tweaked this a little: I had a half a packet of taco seasoning that need to get used up so I used that rather than the seasoning listed. That gave it a good flavor without being too spicy for the kids. I had 2 very large chicken breasts so I filleted them and that reduced the cooking time to about 1/2 hour. I also added a small cup of pineapple tidbits w/ a little of the juice. This was so good served with Vigo saffron rice, a little sour cream on top garnished with chopped green onions. My 6 yr old loved it but picked off the beans and my 3 year wouldn't touch it. The leftovers made a great lunch today!

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
Good and fast! I used only 1 egg and 1 minute was almost too much. I also made this into a sandwich so I only added salt & pepper to the egg before cooking it. When it was done I put a slice of american cheese on top, let it sit for a minute to melt, then put it on a toasted english muffin with a piece of honey ham. Wow! Better than the ones we used to slave over! My husband added herbs, onions and shredded cheese to his but wasn't too happy with it, he said it tasted funny, could have been the herbs though.

G's Flank Steak Marinade

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
Delicious! Everyone loved this one, even my 3 yr old had seconds. My only change was adding about 1 teaspoon dried rosemary and I left it in the fridge for 2 days, wow. For a 1.5 lb flank steak I grilled for 5 min each side for a nice medium rare. The edge pieces were done a little more for the kids.

Vermouth Tarragon Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
I won't be making this again. I used thin sliced chicken breasts and grilled them. In the amount of time they took to cook, the alcohol did not cook out. Oddly enough, my 2 year ate it without complaint but me, my husband and my 5 year old didn't like it.

Barley Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
This was a pretty good soup. I had to make some minor adjustments, I didn't have Thyme so I didn't add it and I added cubed potatoes just cuz I like them. I was a little nervous about the allspice but it really added a nice flavor. My husband liked it and my 2 yr old ate it, however my 4 yr old refused to even come to the table to try it.

Pork Chops in Beer

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
This was pretty good. My husband and kids loved the sauce but I felt it was a lot like bottled sweet BBQ sauce. I had to improvise w/ ingredients: about 1 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup sweet soy sauce, splash of worstershire, 1/2 bottle beer (Molson), garlic powder and pepper. Make sure that you watch the time too. I browned my bone-in chops first and they were overcooked in 20 minutes!

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
I made this just as the recipe states but the sauce had an overpowering vinegar taste. I used pork tenderloin and that part was great.

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2005
Very tasty! My husband & I loved it, the 3 yr old wasn't crazy about it but I think he was expecting something different. I followed the recipe closely, but I used frozen berries (thawed & drained), walnuts instead of pecans, regular oats and a little fresh ground nutmeg. I will definetly make this one again!

Monterey Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2005
Although I did a few things differently, this turned out great! It was a hot day today so I tried it on the grill by using non-stick tin foil and making packets. I also did the potatoes in a separate packet than the chicken because it was just too much stuff in one packet. My husband loved it and my 3 yr old even at the chicken after I took the cheesy topping off:). I also added some Penszey's "Fajita" seasoning to both the chicken and the potatoes and used scallion rather than cilantro. We will be having this one again!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
We didn't think this was anything spectacular. Actually, I made a better one in the oven last week. I guess it's nice not to heat up the oven in summer but otherwise I'll stick to my old recipe.

Pizza On The Grill II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
Great idea! We tried this the other night and were a little nervous but it turned out good. Make sure you have all of your prep work done, there is no time to waste after you flip the crust over. Also, slice your veggies small/thin. Our mushrooms didn't cook well & the crust was getting too dark to leave on any longer. Next time, I'll slice mine thinner and turn down the heat after flipping.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
This recipe lived up to it's name. It couldn't be any easier and it tasted great. I did add a little basil but the great thing about this recipe is you can add whatever you like to spice it up or keep it mild for the kiddies! This was plenty of sauce too. Enough for 2 decent sized pies.

Saucy Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
Very disappointing. I read the reviews and tried to alter it but it still didn't help. The taste was bland even after adding garlic and italian seasonings. And, the instructions could be better. It took me awhile to figure that this is done on the stovetop and it doesn't specify whether to use "minute rice" or regular rice. I used jasmine rice figuring that cooking for 3 hours would cook it - wrong. After 2 hours the rice on the top was still crunchy so I had to tip them over to try to get them in the sauce enough to cook the rice, even though I was basting them every 15-20 minutes. And, I didn't know if I should cook them covered or not. I left the lid on thinking that would help the rice, nope. Oddly, the rice that was deep in the pepper got horribly mushy.

Great marinade! My husband and I loved it, the only change was I only baked it for an hour and it was tender and juicy.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2003
This was surprisingly easy to make. I am not a "baker" and I had no problems making the crust - there was just not enough of it to have a top & bottom. Next time I will double the crust recipe, better to have too much than too little. The filling was great. I served it to my husband and his parents who all are tough customers to please and they all liked it. Although my mother-in-law said she never had it before with tapioca as a thickener, she usually uses flour so the taste was a little different to her. I thought it tasted great and will definitely make it again! Thanks Deb!

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2003
It was easy to make and tastes pretty good. I used butter instead of margarine & butter flavored shortening because it is what I had on hand. It seemed gritty at first but I let it mix for a few more minutes and that seemed to help. I couldn't imagine doing it without a stand-alone mixer. I think I should have chilled it for a few before trying to do the decorating, but it worked pretty good.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
This is a pretty tasty recipe. It seemed a little complicated but I think I tried to do too much at one time. Next time I should have all my prep work done before hand. The sauce is really good, I used the juice of one fresh orange instead of the concentrate, it gave it a very fresh flavor. We could have used more sauce though. Also, I'm not sure I liked the taste of the cornstarch on the beef but maybe there was too much on it or something. Will try this one again, maybe we'll add some chile paste next time for a little heat and will try with less sugar.
