Bay Scallops with Garlic Parsley Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
This was fantastic. Prepared exactly as stated, the scallops are delicious. In order to prevent super soggy bread, use a dense bread, and make sure it is well toasted. I highly recommend this recipe, either as an appetizer, or a meal.

Blueberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
The recipe tasted great, but it was complete soup. I used frozen fresh blueberries. I let them thoroughly defrost to eliminate any extra moisture. I added a bit extra flour to the filling per suggestion, and I still ended up with blueberries floating in liquid with a crumb top. I don't think it will be a small fix, but when I figure out how to adequately thicken up the soup, it will be great.

Egg Foo Yung II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
The only change I made to the recipe was to use all roasted pork instead of three meats. I tried to cook it as directed, like pancakes. It wouldn't set up and hold. The only way I could get it cooked was to scramble it like an omelet. I tried to eat it this way, but I found it to be inedible. My husband ate it because he was hungry, We aren't picky eaters...

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
This cake is divine. The first two times I made it, it tasted great, but was a disaster. I have had NO success making it in a bundt pan or as cupcakes. However, if I heavily grease it and heavily flour it, it works GREAT in a 13x9 inch pan. I just sprinkle it with powdered sugar. It doesn't need icing at all. Oh - and I didn't change a darn thing about the recipe.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This was really good. I thinly sliced raw chicken and tossed it in with the rest of the ingredients. I will totally make this again, but next time, I will add less water. It had really good flavor, but I think it was a bit too liquidy.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
There is absolutely nothing healthy about this recipe. It is sugar on top of butter on top of cream cheese on top of butter, but it is SO GOOD. I made it for a dinner party, and it got rave reviews. I highly recommend.

Raspberry Pain au Chocolat (Raspberry Chocolate Croissants)

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
These were really easy, and very elegant looking at the end. 18 minutes was way too long in my oven, so you might start checking at 13 minutes or so. I would recommend them for an easy, tasty, elegant brunch item or dessert.

Pumpkin Pie Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
I changed this a bit, but not so much that I do not feel I can rate the original recipe. First, I added an extra 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of allspice. I accidentally left the nutmeg out, but I will add it next time I make this. I spread the pumpkin part in the pan. After reading the reviews, I decided to mix the melted butter, the cake mix, and the chopped nuts (I used pecans) together rather than the drizzle method described in the instructions. Then, I carefully dropped the "crust" batter on top, and spread it out so it was even. After removing from the oven, I let the whole concoction cool over night, then flipped it over onto a cookie sheet, and spread a thick layer (about 1/2 inch thick) of cool whip on top. It was incredibly tasty!

Cuban Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Fabulous! I followed the recipe exactly, except for a tad more beef broth, because what was I going to do with a tad of beef broth? I cooked on low in the crock pot for 12 hours, and the meat just fell apart. I will certainly make it again.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
These are delicious. I am only rating it 4 stars because I made a lot modifications, but I would rate my final product 5 stars. I grated my zucchini and then spun it in the salad spinner to get rid of excess liquid (I emptied the liquid out of the salad spinner twice, and the zucchini was still plenty wet. I used 1/2 cup of Italian bread crumbs and 2 tablesoons flour instead of 1/2 cup of flour. I also added a generous grinding of pepper, and 3 cloves of garlic, minced. I dropped a "ball" of the mixture into additional breadcrumbs, and patted it flat to look more like a patty, coated all sides in the bread crumbs and fried in the pan. My husband LOVED them.

Creamy Horseradish Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I made this to serve with beef tenderloin. I used 2 tablespoons of horeseradish and a full teaspoon of dill because I like a stronger flavor, but my family LOVED it. It was far more delicious than the horseradish dill sauce we previously used.

True Blue Custard Crunch Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
This was incredibly simple to make and very delicious. The center wasn't set at all when I pulled it out after 25 minutes to add the topping, so I baked for an additional 10 minutes before adding the topping. Also, one of my dinner guests is allergic to tree nuts, so I substituted brown sugar for the pecans, and it was still very flavorful and crunchy.

Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
Mushrooms are a delicous and nutritious medium to get the artichoke dip from the dish to your mouth. I substituted the garlic salt for actual salt, and then added about 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper and 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic. My in-laws were thoroughly impressed. Thanks for the great recipe, Anita!

Fruit Pizza II

This is amazingly good. I use an array of whatever fresh fruit I have available, and it is always delicious.

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
I had high hopes for this recipe, but in the end I found it to be REALLY sweet, and it never set up. I took it to work to share with my coworkers, and I thought that 16 hours in the fridge would have caused it to set, but after removing a piece the rest of the filling just oozed into the vacant space.

Smoky Mountain Chipotle Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
This was delicious, but it requires a lot of ingredients I don't keep on hand (whiskey, 2 cups of ketchup...) I didn't feel like amount of money, time and effort that went into making the sauce was worth the end result. Again, it tasted great; it wasn't bad in any way, it just was not as good as I would expect for something requiring that much effort.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
This wasn't bad, but I don't think I will make it again. Normally that sentiment ranks three or fewer stars, but upon rereading the recipe I realize a couple of the issues were my own silly fault. I considered cutting the honey mustard in half but decided against it, and now wish I had. I had an exorbitant amount of honey mustard, and I ended up throwing away the remainder because it wasn't tasty enough to save and use for anything else. I apparantly confused the directions for this recipe with another recipe I was considering because I pounded the chicken breasts. At that point, I found cooking them for even just 3 minutes on each side almost cooked them entirely. I felt like the various liquids in the pan diluted the flavors inherent in the dish, and simply adding more of the honey mustard did not solve the problem. I also didn't like the way the bacon tasted after being sandwiched between cheese and mushrooms and baking for 15 minutes, but I don't really blame the recipe for that. If I do make it again, I will just place the bacon on top right before serving.

Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
We liked this well enough, but I thought there were way too many flavors going on. Garlic, mustard, parmesan, worchestershire and onion are all really powerful flavors. If I were to make it again, I would leave out the ground mustard and the onions. I think that would let the parmesan garlic flavor stand out a bit more.

Pork Chops 'n' Pierogies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I was a little nervous about the sugar, but this was really really good. Make sure you get a bite of the delicious onion or apple with every bite of pork. I used the boneless loins, because that is what I had, but I will certainly put this into the dinner rotation.
