Sherry's German Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Just wanted to add a little trivia, that draping a piece of meat with bacon or salt pork before roasting is a very old technique called "barding". Sounds delicious. Also wanted to tell user Ppquat that users of this site are allowed to make revisions to a recipe, and still rate it, so how about YOU, stop being rude. Thanks!

Mom's Best Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
Pretty freaking tasty and easy. The only thing I would do differently is to season the crumbs more, with garlic powder and cayenne, and more black pepper. It was good, but a tiny bit bland.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
Honestly, the best chocolate frosting I have ever tasted. I did use Ghiradelli brand cocoa powder, which can't have hurt. Oh my, it was so, so delicious. Also, I halved it, and it was more than enough for a 9 inch round layer cake.

Tomato Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
Really tasty. I should have read the other reviews first and drained my tomatoes and/or prebaked my crust, maybe with an eggwash, or added a cheese layer on the bottom, because the crust did get quite soggy. I have 2/3 of the pie left (only because it's just me), so I poured out as much liquid as I could, and I hope it firms up some as it cools. Very yummy, though.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
My sauce was quite drippy, but then I reread the recipe and saw that I was supposed to drain the tomatoes, which I didn't. I thought it was good, hearty, and easy, but lacked a little something. Next time will add bell pepper, and also maybe sprinkle with basil rather than parsley. Great starting recipe, though. Hubby will love it, I know.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
This was very very tasty! I melted the butter in the microwave, them mixed in the soup, wine and dressing packet, and heated that up, then added the cream cheese in chunks and heated again until melted, and whisked smooth. Poured over three chicken breasts, and baked for an hour as directed. I would have given it five starts, but even with half the chicken, there was still not enough sauce to adequately coat the pasta. Next time, I'll double the sauce and add freshly minced garlic too. Also, I think it would be just fine with half the butter. But overall, this was yummy yummy yummy.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
It makes me mad to take my time and ingredients and work at making something to end up empty handed and hungry. I followed the directions perfectly, except for halving the recipe, which I double checked. The batter was obviously too thick, so I thinned it down with more milk. Even so, no matter how long I cooked them, these pancakes were gooey in the center. Since the recipe has egg in it, I wasn't going to serve these undercooked. I don't know how anyone had a decent result with this recipe, and now we're eating peanut butter sandwiches for dinner, mad.

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Delicious! But don't be fooled by the recipe submitter writing that her husband likes "spicy" food. This is in no way spicy, unless by spicy you mean sweet.

Lemon Basil Pesto Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
The homemade pesto was excellent; a huge hit. But if you've never had flat iron steak, let me warn you, it is a disgusting cut of beef. There were weird dice- sized chunks of gristle scattered throughout. It was revolting. I wouldn't feed a flat iron steak to my worst enemy's dog.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
I give it five starts for ease of preparation, but three stars for taste. I need to figure out how to jazz it up. Maybe I'll add spinach and mushrooms next time. I did use half sour cream and half mayo as advised by other reviewers, a well as adding some buttered bread crumbs on top and broiling for five minutes, after baking for 35. The chicken was very moist and tender, but it was just kind of blah.

Spicy Pizza Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I enjoyed this soup. After reading the reviews, I cut everything in half except the crushed tomatoes, the tomato sauce, and the water (I used half water and half beef broth). The consistency was perfect. I also sauteed the sausage and vegetables in olive oil before adding the other ingredients, to add that caramelization, and to reduce cooking time. I also added garlic and plenty of dried oregano and basil, plus just a pinch of sugar, and about a half cup of red wine. Oh, and for the pepperoni, I found these adorable little mini pepperonis, I think from Hormel. They are about the size of an aspirin. Perfect size for this. Easier than the minestrone that I usually make, and just as tasty. I'll make it again. Gave it 4 stars bc my husband thought it was just OK.

Allana's Excellent Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
This was really easy and tasty; it is the dijon mustard that make it! My only complaint is that I used a pound of potatoes, since that's all I had, and they barely fit under the chicken broth. I would never have been able to fit 2 1/2 pounds under that amount of liquid. I sprinkled grated cheddar on top, and served with garlic toast. Next time, I think I'll add even more dijon mustard. Yummy!
