Grilled Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
These were absolutely delicious. I marinated for close to 5 hours, and they were very flavorful. The glaze was a very nice touch, too, and gave my guests the ability to control how strong of a flavor they wanted. I must admit, I thought twice before adding the cinnamon (I generally do not care for sweet in savory food), but I went with it, and I thought it added a really nice dimension. YUM!

Awesome Broccoli Marinara

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
This was fabulous. Just the thing I was looking for -- flavorful, fresh, and a perfect meatless meal over pasta. I added a few red pepper flakes when the garlic was sauteeing in the olive oil, and I used fresh basil and a couple tablespoons of great quality balsamic with regular canned/diced tomatoes (which is what I had on hand). Served over penne with a serious sprinkling of parmesan. Leftovers were great without the pasta, just as a side dish. Couldn't want for more!!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Wonderful! Delicious and easy. A great compromise between prepared out-of-a-jar type of meal and a slave-over-the-stove-for-hours meal. Due to the crowd I had, I tripled the recipe. In doing this, I did substitute one pound of beef for a pound of ground pork (essentially, 1/3 of the meat was ground pork, the rest ground beef). I also served as grinders, so had a lot of sauce left over -- made two killer lasagnas to use it up! Thank you, Jeremy, for a ton of really great food!!!

Super Italian Sub

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
This is a GREAT sandwich. I prefer red pepper to green, but otherwise I follow the recipe exactly and always get rave reviews. Love that the bread gets hollowed out, as it lets the meats and cheeses really shine, rather than dealing with big mouthfuls of bread. Great for a crowd -- has been the hit of several summertime gatherings at our home. Pair with caprese salad or a hearty pasta salad with vinaigrette. Outstanding!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Hands down, this is THE banana bread recipe I use. Texture, flavor, everything is outstanding (and I'm not generally much of a banana bread fan). I've done as full-size loaves, mini loaves and muffins, and each has been great. Be sure to note the oven temp, as I have often turned it to 350 and had to scramble at the end to make sure it didn't burn! Truly a great recipe.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
This was yummy, and well received by the family members who gathered for a small Father's Day party. Thanks to the other reviewers, I doubled the batch -- so glad I did! There were seven adults; we served it with cookies and very little was left. A single batch would not have been enough. Definitely on the sweet side -- I used just over 1.5 c of sugar (in the double batch) and it was plenty sweet. Freezes well, stays pretty creamy and scoops nicely the next day.

Party Punch VI

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This seems too silly to be good, but it is! This is not gourmet, nor is it fancy, but it is delicious and couldn't be any easier -- that's where the five stars come in. The ratio of effort to results is outstanding! I used raspberry sherbet (couldn't find strawberry) and Juicy Juice fruit punch. One note: this brand of punch is NOT a beautiful red color. It is more of a brown, which I didn't exactly realize until assembling. Even though the color went a little off target, it was still really popular at the baby shower -- the punch bowl was empty at the end!

Hot Spiced Cranberry Cider

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This was great -- just what I was looking for. Followed quantities exactly, except that I made half for a small office gathering and the other half the next morning for house guests. The thing I liked best is that it wasn't overly sweet -- I was serving to folks who drink black coffee every day and knew something that was more on the tart side would go over well. This was festive, pretty and tasty!

Margaritas on the Rocks

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
These were outstanding. I made the sour mix from scratch (with limes only, no lemons) and followed the recipe exactly, except that we did not freeze them -- left them on the rocks. Served these at my own birthday party (great way to justify $38 for Grand Marnier!) and they were a huge hit. One batch filled six of my margarita glasses.

Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
Delicious. Creamy, not too "cakey" or dense, but plenty, plenty rich and decadent! My husband got an itch to make a cheesecake -- his first -- and this was the recipe. It really turned out great. One thing for next time, we will probably use more butter (maybe half again as much, or even double it?) in the crust to have it hold together a little better. Also, the Pampered Chef springform pan is NOT big enough for this recipe. We made a little extra crust, distributed the extra batter among muffin cups and baked them separately.

Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
VERY yummy! I love the red wine flavor in the broth, and the zucchini and sausage go great together. Even my husband, who prefers more of a thick stew or chowder, had a second helping and enjoyed the leftovers! I used a mix of bowtie and fusilli pasta (what I had on hand), but other than that, followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for posting!

Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Very good! The wine is what really makes it special. I followed the recipe just about exactly, although I threw a few garlic cloves and bay leaves in the water while the chicken was cooking (and later discarded them with the bones). I also substituted carrots for the mushrooms, as my husband isn't a fungus fan! The only comment, our batch needed significantly more salt. I used reduced sodium bouillion granules, so this may have been the reason. No problem to add the salt, but it seems like 1/2 tsp. would be not nearly enough for such a big pot of soup! Will make again, though, with these minor changes. Thanks for the recipe!

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
The pork was moist and flavorful -- we had a 4.5 lb. roast and it was done after 50/45. We did use the pan drippings (skimmed of much of the fat) for an au jus -- so flavorful, and a shame to throw them out. The potatoes were not as good as I'd hoped. I was looking for something nice and crispy. these were moderately flavorful, but nothing terribly special. To its credit, this recipe is quick, simple and would probably pass as a really good week-night meal (if you have the time to bake it) for most people!

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
These were great! Per others' suggestions, I replaced the corn syrup with 3 Tbsp. molasses for a bit stronger taste. Delicious! I also used melted white chips to frost, rather than royal icing -- much easier and tastier! This is a great recipe for GOOD TASTING gingerbread. So many out there focus on the way they look. These look good, too, but they taste GREAT. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Freezer Pie Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2003
This is outstanding - we have a very bountiful peach tree and the first time we harvested I was overwhelmed with what to do with all the peaches. I made several of these pie fillings, stacked them in the deep freeze, and we have enjoyed "fresh" peach pie all year long! Pretty special - and SO convenient! The only comment is that the pie often needed to cook quite a lot longer than the recipe indicated (sometimes 2+ hours). When baking, I wait until the filling makes slow bubbles that do not burst- just like with any pie. This recipe is a GREAT idea!
