Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Loved this! It's simple, easy and delicious! We grilled ours on the top shelf of the grill. Best tip for grilling a pork loin is get a meat thermometer! Takes out the guessing if it's done and it won't be raw or overdone and dry.

Sangria by the Pros

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Yummy! Much easier than others I've tried. I only used the citrus fruits and added the Sprite at serving. If you have left overs to store for later, I'd recommend removing the fruit first. The rinds can make it bitter after a bit.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Per my husband.... "a keeper". You could easily season this completely differently and get a great result. Cajun, Mexican seasonings. Great starting place for lots of options. Chicken was moist and looked very pretty.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
My first time trying risotto and I was a bit nervous about the result. It gave it my full attention, checked the recipe 50 times and it turned out as good as any I've had at a fine restaurant. I changed nothing!

Summer Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Made to the recipe. Had never made summer sausage before so I pretty much had to. My husband raved! He will be making sure I make this again. Would make great hostess or small gifts around the holidays. You can be sure no one else will be giving homemade summer sausage, but take the recipe because you'll be asked!

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Wow...expected this to be good but it was wonderful! It took some other reviewers advice and added some celery and onion, also used 3 cups half and half and 2 cups milk for calorie's sake. It was still very rich. Don't go to all this trouble and skimp on canned crab. Get the fresh crab in the tubs in the seafood department.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
Easy and yummy! Perfect combo. Add the frozen chicken breasts as many suggested and used all chicken broth, no water.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
This has been one of my family favorite for years. I have just a couple of things I do differently. I use a 1/2 cup each brown sugar and pineapple juice and reduce the water to 1/2 cup. I also use green onion, and have never added oregano, or paprika. We usually get enough heat from the crushed red pepper and haven't had a need for the cayenne either. Everyone raves and wants the recipe. Enjoy!

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
I made this recipe as muffins and they did not stay around long. Everyone loved them. My only modifcations were similar to others. Half white, half brown sugar. Then I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. Cuts the calories a bit but doesn't compromise the moistness.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Just like my Great-Aunt Bertha used to make. I had been looking for a recipe that matched her bread for years and here it is. Added some vanilla, but that was all. I think baking time varies on the actual amount of banana used, so start on the short side and check frequently. The last thing you want to do is over-bake it. My did get a deep brown on top but was very moist inside.

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Yummy! Based on other reviewers and my personal preferance for a denser cookie, I added 1 cup of oatmeal that I had put thru the blender so that is like flour. Also added some OJ, orange zest and more craisens and vanilla baking chips, omitting the macadamia nuts. They are very pretty and very tasty!

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Yummmy. Had to add an onion! And used the oven for browning the flour, worked very well. But was afraid of burning the flour so used 375 and only went for 30 mins or so, stirring between 5 and 10 mins. The whole thing takes a while and several pots but was worth it!

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Very nice, light dish. I used mozzerella instead of the cheddar cheese and put a layer of stuffing mix on the bottom of the dish also to help soak up some of the juice from the tomatoes that some others commented on. I also threw in some chopped cooked chicken to make it a one dish meal. Hubby put some Marinara over the top of his second helping and said that he liked that also. Will be doing this again.

Freezer Caramel Drizzle Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
YUMMY! I lightened it up a bit and don't think it was compromised a bit. Used reduce-fat graham cracker pie crusts, only 3 T of butter for the coconut and pecans and lite cream cheese and whipped topping. Rave reviews from all who shared it! Thanks!

Roasted Asparagus and Yellow Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Really liked the idea but I modified it a bit and really enjoyed it. As others suggested I tossed the cut asparagus and red and yellow peppers in olive oil and threw them in my grill basket. Used about 1/4 of a large red onion. Made only about half the dressing and added couple tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Cut back on the mustard and hot sauce too. Still had a lot of flavor and the grill flavor really helped too. Will do again. Thanks for the starting place for a yummy healthy salad.

Drunken Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Followed the recipe exactly and it was ok.....I love asparagus but for some reason this didn't trip my trigger. The flavor of the red wine seems odd with the asparagus. A white wine might have been better for me than the red. Liked the idea...may try again with a white wine and dijon mustard.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
I tweaked the way most suggested....less tahini, more garlic, added canned roasted red peppers and it was amazing! Served with pita chips and it was a hit! It does make quite a bit, so if you aren't having a party or don't want to eat just hummus for a week take the suggestion of freezing in muffin cups for thawing later.

Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Been making this for years and everyone loves it. My version uses the cubed frozen hash browns with peppers and onions(potatoes O'brien) Then you can omit the onion flakes. I also use cream of mushroom soup and a bit more butter and cheese. But this is a GREAT cook-out side dish. We make it at the lake ahead of time and pop it in the oven while getting the rest of dinner ready. Winner everytime!

Not Your Every Day Smoked Pork Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
Yummmmy! Followed the rub recipe except for the omission of the cinnamon. (I'm sure it's good....I just can't!) And just sprayed them in the smoker with some apple juice instead of the mop sauce. Falling off the bone tender and yummy bark and meat flavor. Also put some of the rub on some chicken breasts and cooked them on the grill. Those were very good also!
