Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
This was quite good on flavor. My complaint is that it made quite a bit of watery sauce and 1cup of real maple syrup is pretty expensive. I would try it again with only half the sauce to use less syrup

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
As the other reviewers noted baking this for an hour gets it way overdone. That aside I tried a very similar recipe recently that had tarragon instead of thyme and rosemary which I likes.much better. I think that is personal preferance that. I like the flavor of tarragon more.

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
I cut the thyme in half since it is such.a strong herb. This was good but. I didn't love it enough to keep it. I think it is just personal taste that I am not that fond of thyme.

Almond Crunch Granola

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
have tried a bunch of granola recipes/none were just right...til this one! A keeper. My local groc store does not carry almond oil but they did have walnut oil and I had another recipe I wanted to try that called for walnut oil.....so I sprang for the 7.00 a bottle since I at least had TWO things i could use it for. So glad I did. Yum. Only commnet is on the baking time of 30 min. I stirred mine every 5 min and left it in for 25 min. Really it could have been pulled at 20 min.....30 would definitely have been overbaked.

Cherry Limeade I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
kid loved it...better/more lime than the Sonic version. I used Key Lime juice. Only problem with as written is that it makes enought for a crowd. I only want 1 serving at a time...so I mixed up everything except the soda in a jar. I use 1/4c of mix to a 12 oz can of sprite 1 at a time to make "single serve" size.

Maple-Drizzled Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
these get mixed review from me: the bad first: I found them to be bland and the frosting sickening sweet; I didn't even put it on the muffins after tasting the frosting. I also could not detect the maple flavor in it at all. The good: I got a nice textured and moist muffin. Just bland. I even used a tart apple. I would try it again but.....subsitute brown sugar and or more maple sugar for the white sugar.*Tried a second time: subsituted brown sugar for white, added a pinch of nutmeg and ginger. Much better!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
it is rare for me to say something is perfect as is/no changes to suit my taste...but this one is. I did use half buttermild for the mayo (so 1/2 c each of buttermilk, mayo and sour cream) and it is JUST what I wanted!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
I like the flavor combo... it does have some problems though. First, it is about as unhealthy in fat and sodium content as you can get. Lots of butter, plus 2 cheeses, sour cream, milk and half and half plus a whole TB of salt. I could not bring myself to do it to my arteries! Plus other posters noted that the sauce is too thin/runny. So, I cut the butter from 6 to 4 Tb , the salt from 1 Tb to 1 tsp. I eliminated the half and half. Did not miss it a bit because even without the half and half the sauce was still a little too thin. Reading through the reviews there were several folks that commented that it came out grainy. That one is easy to figure out. They did not properly cook the flour and butter together long enough to make the roux/the base of the cream sauce. If you don't cook the flour in the butter long enough before adding the milk it WILL come out grainy. Basic cream sauce 101 there. In the end it still came out a bit bland/does not taste like Alfredo sauce. I added 1/4 tsp of black pepper and 2 more crushed garlic cloves. (FWIW the cloves I was using were on the small side). Also had to make more roux to add 2 more TB of flour too thicken it up. Did like the end product....but with a lot of changes. As Is Written.......it is bland and runny. One previous poster was accurate when they said it was more like cream of chicken soup as written.

Avocado Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
not bad. I made them with mild salsa. They are still lacking a little something to make them pop....I think I will try adding a little jalepeno and cilantro next time. As noted in previous reviews they don't hold together nicely when sliced. I did better with making them as a burrito type thing for lunch and NOT slicing them. And avacado turns when it sits out so I think guacamole with the acid/lime in it would add both flavor and keep it prettier looking. So...good place to start but needs some tweaking.

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
all 3 of us really liked this one. Changes were minor: dredged in flour before browning, added a little garlic powder, and after baking browned it for 30 min in the oven because the veggie dish I was cooking needed to be baked at 350 x 30 min.....came out at the same time that way.

Pineapple Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
made it as written/we liked this one a lot better than a another one we tried on this site. My tweak was to add some chopped nuts....cashews or macademias.

Mom's Country Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
oil is healthier, butter tastes better! Pick your priority. I find a happy medium is I can'd believe its not butter. I added some dried chipped beef for a breakfast meal. I like mine with a bit more zip though/plain white gravy is a tad boring so I put in a few red pepper flakes in mine. Since I use chipped dried beef in mine which is pretty high in sodium already I cut the salt in half. My real change was to use less flour...it was bit too thick for me as written. I used 1/2 cup.

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
nice consistency on the filling though my crust came out a bit soggy for some reason.Being forwarned I used a really "deep" deep dish (cut everything in half/just made 1) and it was just right. For normal pie pans/crusts it would definitely make 3, not 2.I tried this a second time as a veggie quice without the heavy meat content. It cooked up better and was a much bigger hit.

Korean Egg Roll Triangles

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I'm not sure how anything with a whole tablespoon of fresh ground black pepper could be bland as previous posters thought..but just in case I made one change.. I did not have any plain tofu on hand. What I had were veggie burgers (tofu and veggies) or spicy black bean burgers. (Tofu,black beans and spice). So..since previous posters thought they were bland I went with the black bean burgers and crumbled them up.Neither my daughter nor I cared for the texture of the noodles in it....I'll stick to ones with veggies in them.

Island-Style Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I made as written except I could not get Chinese sweet sausage/not sure what it's equal is so I used Italian sweet sausage and real ham/not SPAM. One problem is that the instruction list says to add garlic but there is no garllc in the ingredient list....had to guess. I started with 2 cloves and that got lost and ended up with 4 cloves. In the end my daughter still didn't care for the sausage in it....said she could not taste the pineapple flavor much over it and she wants to taste the pineapple. Persoanlly we will stick with the one here on AR called Pineapple Fried Rice II for our tastes.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I love the bacon wrapped idea. The only thing I changed is that my usual popper filling is half cream cheese and half sharp cheddar....I like the cheddar mix better.The tough part is doing these on the grill/having to turn them over and do both sides to crisp the bacon without the cheese leaking out. I put a bacon"flap" over the end first and then wrapped....that worked pretty well....I only had 2 leakers. Next time I might try stuffing a whole pepper and wrap with bacon....will be easier to keep the cheese in......great flavor though

Creamy Strawberry Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
I made a couple small changes but came out great. I added 1/4 tsp of vanilla to the crepes and used ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese to make the filling healthier.

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
very good base with minor changes to suit my taste: a little too sweet/would cut down the sugar next time. I added 2 TB olive oil (though I did use the meat) and 1 can of tomato paste to amp up the tomato flavor. I added mushrooms because we like them.
