Broiled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
So, maybe I did something wrong- but I followed the recipe exactly, and these weren't great. They were palatable, but not great. It tasted like pork chops dipped in tomato soup. I tried to thicken the sauce with some cornstarch and water, but it just made thicker tomato soup. I should have just used some BBQ sauce. It would have saved me some disappointment.

Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
These are really quick, delicious and easy. I think though, that once you are finished browning the pork, more butter should be added before adding the honey. I really liked it that way. I have been cooking for my cousin and her family (she recently had twins), and they have requested it more than once.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
Great flavor- but I agree with the other reviewer who said that the chicken became a bit "pasty". I marinated my chicken overnight, but I am sure that is what gave it it's great flavor. I will have to keep working on that. Thanks for the great marinade recipe!

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
I LOVE this recipe. That said, I have to make some adjustments to suit my taste. I put much more garam masala than called for (but I used Spice Islands brand, which is probably more mild than an authentic Indian brand). I used sour cream because I didn't have any yogurt. I also used evaporated milk instead of half and half. I used 1 1/2 cans of tomato sauce as well. I didn't need to thicken since I used evaporated milk. So great with basmati rice and naan. This is probably way Americanized- but different than a lot of other recipes and so good.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
This was pretty good- however to me, it just tasted like iced coffee with cream and sugar. I think I was looking for more of a Thai iced coffee flavor.

Thirst Quenching Lemonade

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
I was really craving lemonade one night, so I found this recipe, and went to lemon squeezing. I don't really think it was worth the effort. I had to use more lemons than the recipe called for because it wasn't tart enough- but then I only drank half a glass and threw the rest away because the flavor wasn't quite right. It was the right amount of tartness, and the right amount of sweet- but there was something missing. At this point, store bought is better. Thanks anyway.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
These are the most simple looking appetizer, but boy, do they go fast! Make sure you do a lot of these for your party- because they were the first things gone out of an entire spread of appetizers. Surprising, but very good. It is worth the effort that goes into making them. Make sure to use a broiler pan lined with foil- it makes clean up much easier.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
This was pretty good- it went over well at a dinner that we had at our home last week- not much leftovers for 12 people. I added some taco seasoning and cumin to the sour cream/cream cheese mixture though, because it seemed like it was missing something. I used green leaf lettuce, because it was all that I had, but I think that iceburg would have been better for this recipe. Thank you for the recipe!

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
This is a great cheeseball recipe! I love the simplicity of it- and everyone really loves it. I like to use the finely shredded cheddar cheese- it works great. I also use sliced almonds instead of pecans, and it is very good. If you are making this for a smaller crowd- halve the recipe- because this makes 2 average sized (grocery store sized) cheese balls.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
This was a pretty good base recipe. I added much more garlic and oregano. I also added some basil- and it needed a little sugar to take the bitterness out of the tomato sauce. I really liked the texture though, and overall- it is a good start to some good pizza sauce.

Grecian Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
This is absolutely wonderful! I have made it quite a few times now, and I have only changed a couple of things. I don't think the flour is necessary. I have also added artichoke hearts, because a greek dish like this without artichoke hearts doesn't make sense. I serve this with pasta tossed with olive oil and (more) greek seasoning. It is really delicious.

Riblets and Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2005
These riblets are outstanding. My husband said that he'd never have riblets at (a famous chain restaurant famous for their riblets) again!! The meat falls right off of the bone, and the flavor is amazing. I added about a tablespoon of minced ginger root to the marinade to kick up the asian flavor of the ribs. Also, no extra salt is necessary- the soy sauce is salty enough. I have made them twice now, both times in the oven in a roasting pan. Definately double the sauce if you cook them in the oven, and turn the riblets a couple of times throughout cooking- there won't be any sauce leftover- it will all have soaked into the meat. They make great leftovers too!! These are a must try!

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2005
This was a really great recipe. I have never been a fan of cornbread, but we had family over for Riblets and mashed potatoes last night, and I thought that cornbread fit the bill. I did everything that the recipe instructed, except I added 1 cup of frozen corn (thawed and drained) to the batter, and it was wonderful!! I will be making this often- I think that I LOVE cornbread now!

Banana Cream Pie Made Easy

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
I made this pie for my mother in law for mother's day- and "Wow!". I couldn't believe how easy this was to make- and how delicious. The pudding layer alone was wonderful- I could eat that by the spoonful. I took leftovers to work- and it was gone in less than 5 minutes.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
If I could give this cake more stars, then I would. It is absolutely wonderful! The frosting alone is enough for 5 stars. I could eat this cake every day. I think that the chopped walnuts on top add so much to this recipe- and I usually shy away from adding nuts to my baked goods. You will love this cake!!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
This will be my standby brownie recipe from now on- tastes very close to the Giradelli brownies out of the box (some of the best you can get) I am not sure what I think of the frosting though. I'd just assume not put any frosting on them- they are perfect as is!

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
This recipe is really fantastic. I used ground chicken because it is moister than ground turkey. I added diced jalepenos for a little more heat- and i threw in some corn for color. My husband absolutely loved this. We both don't like regular chili very much (I don't like kidney beans, he doesn't like beef)- but we both decided this would be a regular item in our household. It is healthy and delicious!

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
I made this and reviewed it a couple of years ago, and I made it again last night, and had to re-write my review. This cake is SOOO good and EASY! I didn't have a lot of time to throw something together before we had company over for dessert, and this totally hit the spot. I love the idea of using a cake mix (which I generally don't enjoy) as a base, and adding simple everyday ingredients to make it super yummy. The only difference is that I used about 1 1/4 cup of sour cream (light). I also cooked this in a bundt pan instead of a sheet. Delicious and pretty! Couldn't ask for more.

Happy Birthday Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
This was kind of a weird recipe. It wasn't really what I was looking for. It wasn't too sweet, and it was very dense. It is probably a great cake for a strawberry shortcake dessert, but I am not sure about a birthday cake. Of course, I couldn't use this as the birthday cake that I was baking for my best friend, because I dropped half of it on the floor when I turned it out of its pan. I guess it was a good thing that happened, because I was able to go for another yellow cake recipe that was more of what I was looking for.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
This is truly the best lasagna I have ever had. My mom is a gourmet italian chef, and she was really impressed by this recipe. I have even replaced my red sauce recipe(that has been passed down from my ancestors from Sicily) with the one from this recipe. Everytime I serve it, people beg for the recipe. The only thing I did differently was use ground chicken instead of beef (my husband doesn't eat beef) and use red wine instead of water in the sauce.
