Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I wanted to try out a new sauce recipe and because this one was highly rated this was the one I chose. I was not a fan of this. I normally just use sour cream and a brown gravy or a can of cream of mushroom soup, so I've never used evaporated milk before. It made the sauce strangely sweet. I had to add some garlic salt and pepper to curve it more towards what I was expecting. I don't plan to use this recipe again. The sauce *looked* right, but it didn't *taste* me.

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
The flavor is really good. Like another reviewer, I used 1 real egg because I didn't have an egg substitute. I skipped the chilling step that others suggested, and mine still held up pretty well. Also, like another reviewer mentioned, this only made 6 regular sized crab cakes. I think if I had shaped mine into smaller and flatter cakes I could've gotten 12. With my convection oven it took a little bit longer to look cooked (15-20 min). I also broiled the tops a little. But, overall, very yummy and beats the recipe on the side of the Old Bay can!

This IS a great crepe recipe! I halved the recipe since it was just for me and my husband and it was still yummy. I added a couple dashes of cinnamon to the batter too which didn't really change the flavor of the crepe much. I just happen to love smell of cinnamon. I was afraid to make crepes because it looked hard to do, but this was SO easy!

Grilled Beef Gyros

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
I randomly looked up this recipe tonight and was surprised that it turned out so good! Instead of flank steak, I just used what I had on hand...thin piece of london broil. I didn't have a lot of it, so I also used one boneless chicken breast. I prepared the marinade as listed, except decreased soy sauce amount to 1/4 cup like one of the reviewers suggested. I split the marinated into two bags, one for beef and one for chicken. Marinated the meats for about 30 minutes (didn't have time to do 1 hour or more), but it still turned out good! It's a little too cold to grill outside and I don't have the ability to grill indoors, so I just pan cooked it. Still turned out super yummy! I cheated with the cucumber tatziki sauce and just bought some from Costco (the inspiration for the meal in the first place). I prefer the steak to the chicken, but both were good. Hubby liked the chicken!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
What a simple recipe!! And tastes great too. I followed the steps described in the recipe, but made one tiny modification under the advice of another review...sort of. I dry rubbed the pork tenderloin with half a packet of the Lipton Onion Soup mix before putting it into the crock pot of root beer. I don't think it made that much of a difference, but it definitely gave it a nice flavor combined with the BBQ sauce. It was a hit during tailgating!
