Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Awesome flavor! Even my picky husband loved it. I did add some fresh sage and rosemary, just because I had some in the fridge, but it wasn't necessary and the marinade would be exellent without. This recipe is great as is, or can be a great base to experiment with different flavors and seasonings.

Shrimp Butter

Awesome! Will go into my heavy recipe rotation. Perfect for any party or potluck! My husband has already requested this for Superbowl Sunday.

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.

Chicken Supreme III

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I made this recipe as written, except I did substitute leeks and green onions because I had some that I needed to use. This was excellent! Even my picky husband loved it. It will definitely go into "heavy dinner rotation."

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Perfect coleslaw dressing -- I thought it might be too sweet, but it was just right!

Asparagus and Tomato Salad with Yogurt-Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I made this salad as written, using Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard. It seemed like it was missing something, so I added some fresh dill that I had leftover from the night before and some more Parmesan cheese. With those additions, it turned out great -- definitely a keeper.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Absolutely amazing as written! I decrease my orange juice to 3/4 cup and then add 1/4 cup Grand Marnier close to the end, and also add the zest of one orange for a little more orange flavor.

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!

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.

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.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
I've made lentil soup many times and it has always been "good." This recipe is "amazing!" I did add spicy Italian sausage for additional protein and flavor, but this recipe would be excellent without it, too. The vinegar (I used Balsamic) at the end is the secret ingredient that makes good lentil soup into amazing lentil soup, so don't leave it out!

Garlic Dill New Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
This is an excellent, easy to make side dish. I used baby Yukon Golds, steamed them until tender and then add them to the butter sauce and let them sit on low for 10 minutes or so to absorb the flavors. I also squeeze some fresh lemon juice over them to give them a little kick. They make a flavorful side dish for any fish and pair very well with shrimp scampi. Thanks for this recipe! Edited to add: I come back to this recipe over and over again -- I frequently make this recipe with any meal that would usually be served with a baked potato. Excellent side dish!

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.

Easy Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Too syrupy sweet for my family. I tried it in my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and it didn't set up -- which is my own fault. Just not the right Chocolate Ice Cream recipe for me.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
I did make a few substitutions after reading the other reviews: used 1/2 cup of melted butter and 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the oil; 1 t pumpkin pie spice in addition to the cinnamon, as I was out of ginger and nutmeg; added 1-1/2 cups of chocolate chips. I was going to double the recipe, but I'm glad I didn't -- this makes a huge batch! One recipe yielded 12 muffins and two 7 x 3 loaf pans. I cooked the muffins for about 35 minutes and the loaves for 45. This recipe is awesome and I will use it in the future with possible add-ins of grated carrots, shredded coconut, pineapple or raisins. Amazing recipe!

Sweet Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Great classic (think Chik-fil-a) carrot raisin salad taste! I add a half cup of sweetened coconut and a tablespoon of champagne vinegar, but would still rate this a 5 if I made it as written. Sweet, flavorful, crunchy, healthy addition to a potluck, picnic or as a side dish for grilled meat. Drain the pineapple well, because this salad will have enough moisture without it.
