Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Overall, a good recipe. I'll probably tweak the sauce next time by added 2 Tbsp sugar and more crushed tomatoes, less tomato paste, and a bit of white wine. Really liked the meatballs, but my husband did not like the oregano in them, so next time I'll leave that out as well. Also, I baked my meatballs for 20 minutes before adding them to the sauce, because I like my meatballs with a little "crust" on them. This recipe is a great "jumping off point" for making the perfect spaghetti sauce and meatballs, since after reading all of the other reviews it is evident that there are an abundance of personal preferences for the flavors and textures of this classic dish. Thumbs up from me, Jenn!

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
These ribs are amazing! The flavor combination is unique and delicious -- a very pleasant surprise. I followed the recipe exactly, using country-style boneless pork ribs. The only thing I will change when I make them again is to double or triple the lime juice and maybe decrease the soy sauce to 1/3 cup. I will definitely be making these again, and will be using the ingredients and cooking method for other meats as well. Kudos to your mother, Thelmalu!

Coconut Poke Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
This is the most amazing cake ever! Better than any scratch, box or bakery cake. Really. I did toast the coconut (because I wanted toasted coconut for something else) but that wouldn't be necessary at all. I'll definitely make this again for home or potlucks -- it is delicious!

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Wonderful pizza dough! The only change I made was to bake it on a pizza pan (with holes in it) for 12 minutes at 425 deg. It came out crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside with a great flavor. I think I will experiment with flavoring this dough and next time I'll try adding some garlic granules and parmesan cheese.

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Really good! The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars was because mine came out a bit too crispy and almost burnt at 450 for 7 min on one side and 5 on the other. Next time, I'll leave a bit more potato on the skin and bake them for 5 min and 5 min.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Wonderful! Great flavor and texture. I followed the recipe exactly and the flavor and texture was just right. Next time I will double the batch. These were so good that I don't think I'll wait until next Christmas to make them again.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Great recipe -- easy and doesn't require many ingredients. I added a few dashes of Worchestershire to mine. This recipe makes an excellent base and you could add many different things to change it up, or it's great as is. I'll definitely make this again.

Grandpa Harry's Holiday Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
The original recipe was not sweet enough for "punch" in my opinion. I did as another reviewer suggested and added pineapple juice. I also added a bit more sugar and some orange juice, and added frozen pineapple juice "ice cubes" that I made in my muffin tins. These additions resulted in a fruity, sweet holiday punch. This is a very flavorful punch base with just the right amount of alcohol, though.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Beautiful frosting for sugar cookies! Once you figure out the right consistency, it goes on easily and dries to a bright, shiny finish. Use a few teaspoons of milk to thin the frosting until it is the consistency you like. I will definitely be making cut-out sugar cookies more often now, since the finished product looks bakery perfect!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
These tasted too much like Bisquick and not so much like Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits. The texture was too crumbly and not flaky, even though I did not over-mix. I'll keep searching for a way to make Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay biscuits.

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
My German Wirehaired Pointer Cosmo loves these! He has a very sensitive stomach, so I left out the cornmeal and added a bit more oatmeal, as I think corn is part of his problem. I also think wheat germ would be a good substitution for the corn meal, but I didn't have any on hand. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it was very easy. I used a small gingerbread man cookie cutter and they turned out really cute! I'm going to take some to my cookie exchange party for the hostess' dogs. Next time I may try peanut butter instead of beef and cheese, but I will definitely be making them again.

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
These turned out very, very well. I followed the recipe exactly and did not experience any problems with the peanut butter cups being too crumbly or hard. Mine came right out of the pan (non-stick mini-muffin pan sprayed with Pam) with no problems at all. The only problem I had was with getting the filling into the cups. I tried to use squeeze bottles, but my filling set up too much and it was kind of frustrating. Next time, I will work faster and use the baggie method so I don't have to fool around so long trying to get the filling into the bottles. These cookies are delicious -- the perfect amount of rich fudge with a just-sweet-enough soft peanut butter cookie.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Awesome with the orange glaze others suggested. I think I may try to make a double recipe in a bundt cake pan for a festive holiday coffee cake to take to work.

Buttermilk Pralines

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
If I had known making pralines was this easy, I would have done it long ago! I substituted heavy cream for the buttermilk, just because I had some that I needed to use. These are EXACTLY like the pralines you can buy on River Street in Savannah, GA. mmmmmmm... they definitely remind me of the hospitality and charm of the South. I'm sure this batch will be long gone before I put together my Christmas goody platters, but I'll definitely make another batch or two before then.

Beef and Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
I gave this 4 stars because it took about 12 hours on "hi" for my lentils to become tender. I actually had to scrap this for dinner that night because it wasn't done. (Next time I will follow another reviewer's suggestion to add the tomatoes later in the process.) I saved this in the fridge for another night and the leftovers were definitely 5 stars! This is the best lentil dish I've ever made. Next time, I will either cook it on the stove, so I have more control over the heat, or I will boil my stock and water before adding it so it doesn't take so long to start cooking the lentils. The smoky flavor of the kielbasa really blends with the spices and lentils to make a delicicous stew!
