Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
It's not that the sauce was bad, but the sauce did make my pork chops taste bad. Maybe the sauce would work better with chicken.

Sicilian Lemon Chicken with Raisin-Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
I wasn't too sure about the combination of tomatoes and raisins but this really was very good. My only complaint was that their was very little liquid in the sauce to keep the chicken moist. If I were to make this again, I would not drain the tomatoes and possibly add some additional liquid.

Anise Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
Not my cup of tea - I really missed the cinnamon, clove, etc

Sour Cream Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
Lots of prep and clean up does not fit my definition of easy and I wouldn't bother with this again on a week night. On the upside, I liked all the fresh ingredients. I did double the potatoes but could have quadrupled as their really wasn't alot of potatoes for the amount of meat. I do not own a food processor and did have problems with the spinach and sundried tomatoes in the blender. I will have to find another way to make this mixture as ideally I would have added alot more spinach and a couple more tomatoes. My husband thought this recipe was fantastic.

Skrie Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
This was very pleasant but I think the only reason I noticed the anise and mint flavoring was because I knew it was in there. Maybe more anise and fresh mint would have made for a more noticable flavor? I also didn't think the lemon peel was enough to flavor the butter - you will probably need to add a little juice.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
This was good but I missed the raisins often found in other recipes.

Sage Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
By the time my pork was done, my beans had no liquid left to them. I also thought the garlic slivers detracted rather than enhanced the pork's flavor. If I tried this again, I would brown the pork with garlic and keep a better eye on the beans, adding broth as necessary.

Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
Pretty good taste but I wasn't sure I understood the recipe - I used an ENTIRE 14 oz box of Sucess rice and thought that was too much. 3 bags would have been plenty. I also used only 8 oz of cheddar due to the fat factor. I really couldn't taste the beef in this at all - I don't know whether to add more beef or leave it out altogether next time. At any rate, this was quickly consumed by my teenaged boy.

Cranberry Brisket

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
My very picky eater daughter asked me to make this on a weekly basis (she must not have realized there was a can of whole cranberry sauce in it!) While I didn't think it was as wonderful as she thought, it was extremely easy as well as tasty. Ideally, I wouldn't want this in the crockpot any more than 6 hours on low as the sauce really starts to burn.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2006
While this was very good, the smell of that fish sauce was strong!! I'd either have to leave this ingredient out in the future or at least cut it down to 1 tsp. Next time I would use the whole red pepper, green pepper and onion instead of half. I also used 2 packages of boneless chicken breasts instead of 1 because it seemed like there would be so much extra sauce (there was plenty of sauce). Now if I could only get rid of that fish sauce smell!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2006
I can't think of a single reason NOT to give this 5 stars. It is a little different than traditional pepper steak due to the tomatoes and also because the soy flavor wasn't as prevalent. I much preferred this sauce because it was thin rather than the gloppy cornstarch sauces that usually accompany oriental fare. I had plenty of extra sauce to spoon over rice.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2006
I love anything Mexican so I thorougly enjoyed this, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. This was VERY simple to assemble the night before. I had my kids take it out of the fridge to warm up, husband popped it in the oven, and I went to the gym. I followed other's tips and cut the cheese in half for health reasons - it was plenty cheesey without the extra 2 cups.

Rosemary Sherry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
I used about 1 tbs of olive oil and omitted the salt. I would have added salt at the table if it were needed but I didn't think it was. Unfortunately, my chops were a little tough but the onions were excellent.

Blackberry Wine Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
This actually was very good but the smell turned me off. Not being able to find blackberry jello, I used grape. It was okay, but the next time someone leaves me some blackberry wine, I'll try lemon jello.

Mini Upside Down Pineapple Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
I'm not sure what a 3" muffin pan is but I used a standard muffin pan and this did not work. I ended up cutting out a quarter of the pineapple slice (and probably should have cut out more. I tried dumping the first tin onto a piece of wax paper, but the muffins went everywhere and the pinepapples went elsewhere. I quickly put them back together as I was making them for a work birthday, but the brown sugar mixture was left behind on the wax paper. When the second tin came out of the oven, I carefully scooped each cake out with a spoon, but the liquified brown sugar was left behind in the tin. The cakes tasted fine and were actually kind of pretty in a lopsided way, but I wouldn't attempt this again unless I substituted crushed pineapple.

Slow Cooker Wieners in Wiener BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I made these for a party of teenage girls who shunned them for the frozen chicken tenders. What a shame - they were actually pretty good for hotdogs. I used the little smokies. I liked the fact that the recipe used mustard rather than the traditional ketchup or chili sauce.

Holy Smoked Bacon and Mushroom Penne

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
This was certainly full of foods I love but for some reason the flavors just didn't come together.

Raspberry-Glazed Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
This recipe was dissappointing. Browning the chicken pieces before baking would have helped immensely.

Blueberry-Lemon Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
This was very good but required lots of effort. There are many equally good blueberry cake recipes that are much simpler.
