Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I took this out of the oven after 20 minutes because it looked perfect. But the dough was a little limp - I would have preferred it to be crisper. Part of my problem could have been the store brand crescent rolls. I had a difficult time even unrolling the dough, and it looked dry and old.

Chinese Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
May as well have put nothing on the chicken for as little flavor as the sauce added to the meat. I have better luck basting with just soy sauce and butter.

French Silk Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I tried this a few years back with a yellow cake. The chocolate flavor was so weak, it was a waste of chocolate squares. I recently retried this recipe on a dark chocolate cake - what a difference! I don't normally like chocolate icing on chocolate cake, but this is the perfect chocolate frosting for a dark chocolate cake. My only complaint this time was that the icing left my lips feeling a little slick - I'll definitely cut the butter back to a single stick.

Spruced Up Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Made these for Thanksgiving. Everyone wanted to know what was in the potatoes, but I think everyone ate them. No, they aren't as good as mashies loaded with butter and milk, but topped with gray, who needs more fat?

Peanut Butter Pie 2000

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This was very smooth and creamy, but did not have as much peanut butter flavor as other recipes.

Beef Stew II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
The addition of ground cloves made this pleasantly different, however it was more a soup than a stew. I would definitely reduce the beef broth to 3 cups. I cooked this only 4 hrs on high in the crockpot - maybe a longer cooking time would have thickened up the broth a little, but for once the vegetables did not dissintegrate into the broth. I will make this stew again, but I will rotate with other stew recipes.

Mom's Barbeque Style Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This was just okay - there are bottled bbq sauces that are better tasting (quicker, too). I did enjoy the fresh veggies.

Monkey Peanut Butter Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Very good - nice and buttery. I did cut the chocolate chips in half as suggested by other reviewers; all I had on hand was mini chips. Instead of melting into a spreadable mixture, they cooked into hard little crumbles. I think maybe the oven should have been turned off for the final 8 minutes. I added enough milk to the peanut butter frosting so I could pour it over the cookie layer and tilt the dish until the frosting covered the entire surface.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
This was pretty bland the first night, even with all that heavy cream. The leftovers were a lot better as the flavors had time to develop. I did only use 1 cup cream, as it seemed to have plenty of liquid without the other 1/2 cup. I also was a little short on pasta, but there seemed to be more than enough with 8 oz.

Mexican Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
I really enjoyed this, and I felt I was eating pretty healthy (even though it did all come from cans). This would be great on a weeknight as it takes so little effort. I did not read the reviews before making, otherwise I would have added some seasoning to the chops as I was browning them. I definitely will reduce the cooking time by at least 10 min. The chops, though tender, were too dry and so was the veggie rice mix.

Flavorful Flounder

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
Very, very good. I omitted the green onions as I had none, but did sprinkle with onion powder. My husband added Old Bay to his fish before I popped this in the oven. We both thought this was delicious, even on frozen whiting from the grocery store.

Herbed Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
Surpisingly moist despite no added fat (must be that controversial tin foil). The combination of herbs was pleasant enough but could easily be adapted to incorporate your favorites.

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
I don't really care for chocolate with spices, but thought the orange might make a difference. Unfortunately, I used dried orange peel which was totally tasteless. I would not make this again with the semisweet chocolate, but I plan to try this with the white chips suggested by another reviewer, and definitely using fresh orange peel.

Cappuccino-Kissed Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This was good, but could have been a little sweeter. While I don't think I'll ever make this particular cheesecake again, I am going to have too find something to else to serve with that espresso cream topping - that was excellent!

Roasted Potatoes with Tomatoes, Basil, and Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
This was disappointing. I thought with all that fresh basil and tomatoes, this should been superb, but even the addition of parmesan wasn't much help.

Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
Other than the cloves, this was pretty ordinary. The meat in the vicinity of the cloves was definitely tastier that the rest.

Chicken A La Yummy

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
This was surprisingly good. I marinated overnight and cooked on the grill. The chicken really picked up the flavor of the marinade.

Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
This was a strange combination of flavors, and the cilantro really overpowered the basil. There are way too many salmon recipes out there to repeat this one.

Spicy Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
The reviews on this seemed to be really mixed depending on how you spiced up this very unspicy recipe. I took the opportunity to get rid of some Sazon Goya seasoning that I don't remember why I bought in the first place. My husband commented several times on how good it was. I wasn't crazy about the cracker crumbs, next time I would just use bread crumbs.

Chicken Honey Mustard Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
This was good but needed more filling for all that crust. I used 3 large chicken breasts. Next time I think I would add more veggies - maybe some celery, red pepper and mushrooms. You could add another breast, but it did seem to have plenty of meat. I don't think I'd name this honey mustard as those flavors were overpowered by the soy sauce - I think I might try cutting the soy sauce in half in hopes the honey mustard flavor would be more noticable.
