Easy Flat Iron Steak in Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
The sauce was pretty good - I did add a bunch of garlic to it, and I think it would have been bland otherwise. I was also pleasantly surprised by the flatiron steak, which is a cut I hadn't tried before. However, the rub burned on the pan which resulted in really unpleasant gritty burned bits in the sauce. I think high heat is a bit much - if I cook this again I'll try medium high and see if I can avoid the burned bits.

Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
Pluses: Very easy to make, looks amazing, mousse is tasty. Minus: Crust is boring/thin/dry. I'll definitely make this again, but with modifications to the crust. I'll also try it with raspberries instead of strawberries, which I think will be amazing.

Pineapple Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
I found this to be really bland. It needs more spices, and maybe fresh pineapple instead of canned?

French Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
This wasn't bad, just nothing special. The muffins didn't have much flavor other than the topping.

Pear and Almond French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
This was really good, but I thought it could use at least twice as many pears. Fresh pears would probably be better than canned, but it was still very tasty.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Orange Juice and White Wine

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
Not bad at all, but the flavors were a little underwhelming. I'll probably try this again with OJ concentrate and more herbs, or maybe cook in a pan and baste with the marinade.

Lemony Chicken with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
I made a couple of changes based on experiences with similar recipes - I sliced the chicken instead of leaving it whole, and browned it without any breading (breading will just get soggy in the sauce). I served it over whole grain spaghetti and it was pretty good. I think it would be better with more sauce; I'll make it again and double the sauce ingredients.

Pina Colada Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
I'm generally skeptical of no-bake cheesecakes, but this one was really good. I did use whipped cream instead of the whipped topping (whipped topping is an abomination!) and the texture was perfect. I think next time I will add some rum to the pineapple topping.

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
I thought I loved asparagus before - this was absolutely amazing. The balsamic vinegar really complements all the other flavors.

I really liked the way these tasted, however they took about 2 hours to cook rather than the 1 hour

Bikini Martini

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
This is really good as is, but I found that I preferred it with a little less vodka and a little more coconut rum.

Garlic, Basil, and Bacon Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
I made some small changes based on other reviews - used ground cayenne instead of the crushed red pepper, and I roasted the garlic then used about 6 cloves since the flavor is milder. I highly recommend doing that; it was amazing.

True Blue Custard Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
This pie was a huge hit at my friend's birthday party. I made it exactly as directed except I made half again as much of the topping, because more topping is always better :)

Chocolate-Covered OREO Cookie Cake

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
I used the "Too Much Chocolate Cake" recipe from this site for the cakes (it's a doctored devil's food)and mixed some crumbled oreos into the batter, used "Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting" instead of the cool whip filling, and used more like 30 crushed oreos in the filling. It looked just like the picture and was a huge hit.

Zippy Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
It was a little bland as written, but I added another tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and 2 tablespoons of mustard, and it was great.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
This was just ok for me - the batter was really wet, so it took a long time to cook, which was inconvenient, and the taste wasn't good enough to make up for that.
