Dry Rub for Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
Delicious but a bit salty for my taste. I used boneless, country-style pork ribs and baked them in the oven for about 45 minutes first. (45 minutes was too much--next time I will bake them less; I'm just paranoid about uncooked meat!) Then my husband grilled them, basting them with barbecue sauce. The dry rub is pretty versatile--it sounds odd, but the next day I took the leftover ribs, sliced them thinly and served them with a cold Asian noodle dish and a Korean cucumber salad.

Caramel Brownies II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
This turned out pretty dry and crumbly for me. I suspect it was my fault; I should have added more butter (I used about 1/3 cup, since I saw a lot of reviews recommending to cut down the butter to anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 cup) and I should have cut down on the stated baking time. My advice: make sure not to overbake and feel free to use as much butter as you want! :)

Candy Bar Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
The chewy texture is good, and I'll eat anything with Snickers in it. But this gets crumbly really fast (within a day or two), so it's not a good make-ahead dessert.

Ricotta Cookies III

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
This is wonderful, and especially good with colored sprinkles to cheer up what otherwise looks like a boring white cookie. I didn't have shortening, so I made a super-simple glaze out of confectioners sugar and milk (3 T of milk mixed with about 2 cups of confectioners sugar--I just kept adding until it was thick enough). I just drizzled the glaze on top and sprinkled it with colored sugar. At last! I've found a version of this recipe that doesn't use 4--count em--4 sticks of butter. My Aunt had clipped the recipe for Frosted Ricotta Balls back in the '70s and that was definitely back in the day when it was okay to use 4 sticks of butter.

Easiest Teriyaki Marinade Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
This was okay, but I don't think I will be adding it to my regular rotation. I used flank steak, smothering it in onions and mushrooms that I sauteed in the drippings. I took someone's suggestion of adding 1 T cornstarch to make a lovely thick sauce, but it ended up making a black gloppy mess in my grill pan. I think I prefer my teriyaki sauces sweeter as opposed to salty, like this one.

Tortellini Carbonara

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2003
I added garlic, like someone else suggested, and doubled the ham so that it didn't need salt. The extra ham (honey cured) gave it a nice smoky flavor. I also used farfalle since I'm not crazy about tortellini. I sprinkled some extra shaved parmesan on top and it was wonderful. I made this for my sister's birthday and she was surprised at how easy it was, considering it was so yummy.

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
What a great makeover! We had leftover meatballs that I was getting sick of, so I crumbled them in a pot of barbecue sauce and voila! they were revived in these little biscuit cups. I'll bet it would work well with leftover hamburgers or meatloaf (maybe) too. Thanks for an easy meal idea!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
Loved it, loved it, loved it. I used cheesecake and french vanilla pudding (I'm not a huge fan of butterscotch) and made three layers that ended up swirling into a fancy "S" shape in my bundt pan. I may have overbaked it a tad because it turned out kind of dark, so I used the wonderful cover-up of dusting confectioner's sugar all over it. It was so moist and wonderful, I even caught someone picking crumbs off the serving plate!

Aaron's Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
They don't call me Sugarshock for nothing--but these were too sweet, even for me. The only person who liked them was the kid whose Mom raises him on macrobiotic and only allows him to eat honey once a year. Maybe if you make the cookies smaller than suggested (say, may three dozen instead of two) and add more oatmeal, it would cut down some of the intensity of these huge sugar bombs.
