Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2005
Excellent! Really gave a great flavor to the steak! I broiled them and they were wonderful! I have also used this recipe for pork steak and it comes out just as good--we didn't even need a knife to cut the pork, it was so tender! Great recipe!!

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
These are excellent! Quick and easy, and a great taste!! I shortened it even further by using dipping chocolate I found at the grocery store. These will become a staple around here!! Thanks for a great recipe!

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
This was great!! I made it for company and got rave reviews!! Even my husband, who doesn't really like chicken said he loved it and even requested that I make it again!! The only thing I changed was to put the cheese on top in the last few minutes of baking rather than in the breadcrumbs as the recipe called for. Will become a staple in this house!!

Rump Roast Au Jus

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
We were very disappointed in this recipe. Based on the ratings, we thought it would be a lot better. It made tons of au jus, but it was fairly tasteless and the meat was extremely tough. We did enjoy the leftovers, however, I pulled the meat apart, warmed it in gravy and served it on potato rolls as sandwiches--now that was good! Even with the good leftovers, we won't have this again.

Garlic Top Sirloin Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
I opted to cook this on low for eight hours, and the meat was pretty dry, but it did have a nice flavor to it. I might experiment with it again to try for a more moist cut of meat. I served it with the juice on the side and that helped make up for the dryness.

Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2004
I was expecting an incredible cookie based on all the reviews, but we were very disappointed in these cookies. They were wonderful the first day, but that's as long as they lasted. By day two, they were rock hard and inedible. I guess if you only need them for one day, this would be the perfect recipe, but I'll keep looking. These cookies won't be made again in this house.

Chocolate Monkey

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
Hi all, I didn't rate it, since this is my recipe, but in looking over it, I see there is a typo--it should read creme do cocoa, not cacao--completely different liquors with completely different tastes. Sorry if anyone tried it and it was awful! Although the cacao is coconut flavored, so maybe that would be a good drink as well!!!!

Creamy Swiss Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2003
I was expecting a wonderful dish because of all the great reviews, but we really didn't care for this at all. The wine taste was overwhelming, even at half a cup, there was entirely too much sauce for four breasts. We won't have this again.

Beef Tenderloin Stuffed with Lobster

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2003
This recipe could be wonderful, but it does need some modifications. There's no way a steak should be cooked at 425 for an hour--way too dry and chewy. I cooked it at 425 for not quite half an hour and it was overcooked--after an hour, this would have been unedible. I'll try it next time at 350 and watch them very closely to get medium rare. I chose to use london broil, because I had it on hand and didn't cut them up, I put the lobster on top and baked them. The sauce was good and it's a great idea, but this recipe needs some help. I will tinker with it and try it again.

Grasshopper Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2003
Last week I was out to dinner with my father in law, who saw grasshopper pie on the menu and fell in love!! Apparently he used to eat in when he was younger and hadn't seen it in years! Once he tasted it, he said it wasn't quite like he remembered, so that put me on the search for a pie he'd like. This one fit the bill--he took the whole pie home with him after having a piece for dessert! For people worried about the alcohol content, you can buy alcohol free green creme de menthe at the grocery store, which is what I did. I used the same amount called for in the recipe and added a splash of vodka, since we wanted the alcohol, but it is easily made alcohol free for those who prefer it that way.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2003
I omitted the bacon and the onions, and cut back on the amounts of milk and sour cream, so the potatoes wouldn't be runny, and mixed them up with a hand mixer. Then I just put cheese on top and these were wonderful!! I baked them in a 425 oven for thirty minutes and they turned out great! I made them for my in laws for dinner and got nothing but praise. My husband loved them so much, he now wants me to make them at least twice a week!! Great recipe!!

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2003
I eliminated the olive oil and added some extra butter, then mixed in some worcestershire sauce and a bit of garlic powder with the rest of the ingredients. I also added a bit of cheddar and sprinkled grated romano cheese over the mozzarella before broiling it. A huge hit, and now I make it often!!

Three Cheese Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 11, 2003
These were OK, we weren't overly impressed, the bread crumbs really detracted from this dish. Also, they became a solid lump of pasty potatoes after I removed them from the oven. I don't think I'll make them again.

Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
I used heavy whipping cream instead of the half and half and omitted the nutmeg and basil. I used a chunky pasta sauce and this was excellent. I served it over linguine and added some shrimp to the sauce--with a salad and homemade bread, this was a wonderful meal. This will be added to my permanent box!!

Kentucky Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2003
My husband is from the south and pecan pie is one of his down home favorites, and I could never seem to get it quite right, but he loved this!! He shared it with his brother, who agreed that this is one of the better pecan pies I have ever made!

Cod au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
I took a few liberties with this recipe, but the end result was pretty good. I didn't boil the fish, but rather fried it in a pan to start. Since some of the other reviews said it was bland, I used olive oil and garlic to fry it, and added some allspice on the tops during the frying. Also, with the sauce, I added some cheese to give it a better taste, poured that over the fish, and used cheddar and a bit of swiss on the top, then put the whole thing in the broiler until the cheese browned. The results were pretty good, and I think I'd make it again.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie V

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2003
If I were rating this as a chocolate pie, I would have given it five stars, because it got a lot of compliments. However, as a chocolate peanut butter pie, I had to give it three, because you can't taste the peanut butter. I may try it again and adjust the ingredient amounts, also I put it in a chocolate crust rather than graham cracker. Like I said, it was tasty, just not peanut buttery.

Texas Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2003
After some modifications, we really enjoyed this recipe. The first time I made it, I followed the recipe exactly, and we weren't very fond of it. We thought it was rather greasy and the ranch taste was pretty strong. However, I liked the idea of it, thought it was a good blend of flavors, so I decided to attempt it again. The second time, I poured enough ranch dressing into a skillet to coat the bottom, then placed the chicken in the pan and cooked it fully on top of the stove first. Then I put the chicken in an ungreased baking dish and covered it with mozzarella cheese and placed it under the broiler until it melted. This time we had a winner!!!! We really enjoyed the meal and will have it again!!
