Marinated Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
We enjoyed this pork roast. It's so easy, I'll totally do it again. Halved the Lea and Perrins, upped the mustard powder to 1t., omitted the mustard seed, and used a ton more garlic. Put it all in the crockpot on low for 8 hours, and it was delicious. We're going to make BBQ sandwhiches from the leftovers!

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
I love this hummus. I served it with crudites and crackers for a Ladies' Night In, and everyone liked it. I did not add any water, but probably doubled the olive oil. I roasted my own red pepper, and that was plenty of flavor at a fraction of the cost. Also, I only had dehydrated sundried tomatoes on hand, so I soaked those in some water before adding to the mix. Oh, and I used 2 chipotles. It was spicy, but not prohibitively so. It does make a ton, but I used the leftovers in a wrap with feta and veggies for lunches throughout the week. Delish!

Herb-Glazed Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
This turkey was delicious! I made it for our Easter dinner, and was looking for something quick, but that provided a flavorful bird. This fit the bill! The turkey was just slightly sweet, certainly not overwhelmingly so. I used a half cup each of honey and Karo, and this was plenty. The herbs lend a great flavor. Everyone commented on how moist the turkey was. I've been looking for a recipe to jazz up boring old turkey...I would definitely do this again.

Aunt Edith's Baked Pancake

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
I can't decide between 3 and 4 stars. This was was pretty good, and I think I'll make it again, with some changes. I added 1 t. baking powder, 1 T sugar, and 1 sliced banana. My 3 year old loves pancakes, so I made this for him one night when I didn't have time for the real deal. It is eggy, and not as fluffy as regular pancakes, but you can't beat it for simplicity. 3 year old was very impressed with the Big Pancake, naturally.

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
This was pretty good. I just wanted something quick that I could put in the crockpot, and I had everything on hand. Like most meats cooked in a crockpot, it wasn't the most beautiful presentation, so I wouldn't serve this to guests. It's perfect for putting on in the morning and forgetting about it until dinner time. The flavor was great and the chop was tender. I'll make it again.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
These are okay. I might make them again someday since I always have the ingredients on hand, but I wasn't particularly impressed.

Sesame Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I would rate this 3.5 stars, if I could. I halved the marinade and cooked 2 thick boneless chops in the slowcooker on high for 2-3 hours. Tasty, but lacking in presentation. I would make again if I'm in a pinch, as I always have everything on hand. Minced ginger would be a great addition.

Chicken Stew With Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I'm a big fan of Thai food, but was fully prepared to be underwhelmed by this. I was happily surprised when, With some changes, this stew was delicious. I upped the ingredients and made this on top of the stove. I boiled two bone-in chicken breasts, reserving the stock. Then sauteed onion and garlic in 1T oil in a stockpot. Bloomed 1 T cumin, 2 T curry powder, 1/4 t. cayenne, and 1/2 t. dried basil in the oil, then added reserved chicken stock. Used extra carrots and potatoes, frozen peas instead of lima beans, and the whole can of diced tomatoes. Cooked until veggies were soft, then added the diced chicken, the whole can of coconut milk and juice of half a lime. Turned out great! Even the BF, who does not eat Thai food, loved it. Will definitely make again.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
I'm not normally a fan of crescent rolls, but these little sandwiches were tasty. I served these on Christmas Eve as an appetizer, and the men especially liked them. Boyfriend said these tasted like pizza, which is a high compliment coming from him. I prebaked the bottom layer of crescent rolls before I layered on the meats and cheeses. At the last minute I decided against pouring the egg mixture over the top of the filling. That just sounds so strange to me. I did beat one egg and brush the top of the unbaked crescent roll crust. I'll make these again - probably for men who are watching football.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
This is absolutely delicious. I love all the veggies - I use the entire can of corn and hominy. I add a sqeeze of fresh lime juice on each serving, and this gives the broth such a great flavor. Also, frying your own corn tortilla strips is totally work the extra effort. Their texture hold up so much better than plain chips.

Apple-Feta Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
I have to agree with other reviewers - this vinaigrette was barely tolerable. I added the 2 T oil, even though it wasn't in the recipe. Still way to tangy. I also had issues with the walnuts. I made as directed the first time, and they burned before the 15 minutes were up. The second time I didn't bake them after cooking them in the skillet. That worked better, but they just tasted like butter. This was very disappointing to me, as we were having a ladies' lunch and my pregnant friend, who hosted, requested I bring a yummy salad. Sadly, this was not it.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This was delicious, and very easy to prepare. I added 8 oz. fresh mushrooms and half of a red bell pepper, just to get some veggies in there. You could add anything really - I'd like to try asparagus with cherry tomatoes next time. I used dried herbs, and only 1 teaspoon black pepper. It could use a little more sauce, and I may try to decrease the butter next time. Very tasty!

Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
I followed the recommendations made by NEEDGREATRECIPES, and these came out great. 1/4 C soy sauce is plenty. I'll make these again!

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Made these for a football game gathering, and they were a big hit. I was very concerned about the baked wings being crispy enough, and these were, with some adjustments. Baked at 425 for 45 minutes, poured the juices off the pan, turned the wings, and cooked for another 45 minutes. Then I tossed the wings in Frank's Red Hot and returned to the oven for another 10 minutes. No need to use the butter - wings are fattening enough. I used lots of Pam, but did have trouble with the wings sticking to the foil. I'll probably use more vegetable oil next time. I was intimidated, but these were really pretty easy. Now that I know how, I'll make these again sometime.

Spicy Cuban Mojo Chicken with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
Delicious! I love that it's protein and fruit, all in one dish. Add some black beans, you've got a meal, with relatively little effort. I've made this several times, and find it much easier to us ground cumin instead of the cumin seed. Also, I leave out the butter. I'm sure it adds richness, but the sauce is so flavorful you really don't miss it.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I used the entire can of pumpkin, and 1/2 a cup of mini chocolate chips. This turned out fine, but I had a much longer baking time. I didn't do the glaze, but I wish I would have, as I think it's missing something without it. I'm just not "wowed." Boyfriend told me he prefers pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting.

Basil, Roasted Peppers and Monterey Jack Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
I love this cornbread! I've been making it for several years, and it never fails. I've used different kinds of cheese, fresh off the cob and frozen corn, fresh and jarred peppers,and it always turn out great. It even reheats nicely in the oven. Yum! This one's a keeper.

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This was okay. Nothing special, though it was very rich. We ended up throwing away about a third of the pie, which is unheard of at our house. Seemed like the chocolate sauce became runny after a few days in the fridge

Tomato Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
I so wanted this to be fabulous, but it was merely mediocre. As other reviewers suggested, I salted my tomatoes to get rid of some of the moisture, but it still turned out pretty soupy. Tasted better than it looked, but still not worth the fat and calories in my opinion.

Freezer Caramel Drizzle Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
I made this for the 4th of July, and it was pretty darn good on a hot summer day. Definitely decadent and very rich - everyone enjoyed it although some couldn't finish their piece it was so rich. I made one 9x13 instead of two pies. I also made my own graham cracker crust by using 2 C graham crumbs, 1 stick of butter, and 1/3 C sugar. I would do it this way again, just because it seems easier to me than making two pies - easy to transport and serve. Also, be careful when toasting the pecans and coconut. I was distracted by my three-year old and burnt the first batch, and had to start over (not unusual for me). Like another reviewer said, one of the guests suggested chocolate in addition to the caramel. Yum.
