Firecracker Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
very good! A bit tricky cooking scallops just right (don't cook in too much liquid or they won't brown). The horseradish sauce was a great addition, will spread it across tops next time instead of just a drizzle.

Spinach Salad Supreme

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
this was good, but the dressing needs to stand for a few hours in the frig. for best flavor.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
This was excellent... who'd have thought to put cream soup in pot roast?! Be sure to add a couple halved onions, potatoes, carrots and celery ontop of the roast to go with all the delicious gravy! I also added minced garlic, and pepper. The right cut of roast is crucial, or it won't fall apart (my mistake)

Oven Fresh Seasoned Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
These were really good! Served with sloppy joes, 3 potatoes were more than enough to feed 5. Will increase the seasoning next time, especially salt and garlic powder. I was amazed at how well they browned and crisped in the oven.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
My family loved it. It only took about an hour to cook, and looked beautiful. When I cut it, the center of the loaf crumbled, not sure what went wrong (cooked too long?). It was still really tasty!

Flavorful Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
made this for dinner to use up fresh veggies... used snow peas, carrots, green pepper, onion, water chestnuts... doubled recipe and made everything exactly as recipe described... didn't care for the taste of the sauce at all, the soy sauce flavor was overwhelming and masked everything...

JELL-O® Chocolate Pudding Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
this didnt' taste like fudge, it had a dry almost crumbly consistency; I even used extreme pressure to compress it. Not too bad in flavor, but not what I was looking for in terms of fudge.

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I'd give it 10 stars! This is the tastiest fudge ever! I did mess up by not cooking it long enough, I didn't have a thermometer so I ended up with pumpkin caramel... that didn't stop us from eating it all with a spoon though. Second time came out perfectly as I bought myself a candy thermometer... this is a keeper!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
first attempt tasted delicious but I made the mistake of rolling too thin. After the pizza was cooked I brushed the crust with a garlic basting oil, it smelled and tasted incredible!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
didn't have boxed mix so I needed a scratch recipe. This was good, better than box mix, but wasn't exceptional, would have liked a moister cake.

Chocolate Banana Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I only used the banana cream recipe from here (adding 1 fresh, but soft banana) and it turned out delicious - even better after refrigerated overnight. I then put my own twist on this cake making it a tribute to Elvis, lol! I didn't have boxed cake mix, so I used a dark chocolate cake recipe (from AR) and frosted the side of the cake with a peaunut butter frosting (also from AR)... it turned out great and has now been requested by my 13 for his b-day cake.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Yum! Best part of my cake! Followed others' suggestions and used: 1 stick butter, 1cup Peanut Butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, and 5 Tbsp. heavy cream... still very thick, but creamy & delicious!

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce
