Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
I followed some other reviewers and froze the bananas so I wouldn't have to use ice but it wasn't as thick as I like my smoothies. I love peanut butter but I guess I don't like drinking it. My rating is more for a personal taste. I can understand that some people would like this, it just isn't something I would do again.

Oriental Style Halibut

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
5 stars for the sauce but only 4 when made with fish. I am not sure why I wanted to make this recipe, the more I got into making it, the more I thought it was a strange way to have fish. I didn't cut the fish into pieces, I just cooked the fillets whole. My husband really liked it. The sauce is excellent and I am going to make the sauce with chicken and stir fry vegetables next time.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
Perfect snack. I used Pam to spray the plate, sliced potato with knife and followed the recipe as stated. I cooked on high 4 to 5 minutes per plate. No sticking problems for me. Next time I will not use the bag and oil and try spraying plate and potatoes with Pam like other reviewers. My son and husband loved. They were gone in a flash.

Orange Pork Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
I wasn't thrilled with this recipe but my husband had two helpings. I think I would like it better with fresh veggies. Not sure I liked the sauce enough to try it that way though.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
My husband was disappointed with Arby's chicken salad so I told him I would make some for him. I found this recipe and decided to use this and he loved it. I roasted a chicken last night for dinner so I took the extra chicken off the bones and used that in place of the chicken breasts since I was only making a half recipe. I used red grapes and regular raisins. I also added a pinch of salt. Great extra Father's Day gift. :)

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I made these for my husband for Father's Day since they are a favorite of his. Of course I also enjoy them. :) I used the lemon pepper and garlic powder.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
This was ok but definitely needs some seasonings for the meat. The sauce was good but a little sweet for my son and I.

Grilled Ham Steak

Reviewed: May 18, 2012
I used low sugar apricot preserves and followed the rest of the recipe as stated. The sauce had a very mild flavor. We liked it but have a few other ham steak recipes that we like better. This was nice for a change though.

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
I decided to try and make exactly as recipe states but ended up using about 1 lb beans and 1 lb potatoes (cut in bite size pieces). We cooked on indirect heat on a gas grill for 15 minutes on each side. It came out fantastic. Next time will add a little garlic and maybe a few sprinkles of beef bullion granules. We had no problem with burning or sticking to the foil. This recipe will definitely be added to our camping recipe list.

World's Best Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
I used ground Italian sausage instead of sliced links and left out the fennel seed because I am not a fan. The sauce came out very thick and meaty. Great flavor but next time will cut down on the meat and will make in the crock pot like other reviewers mentioned. Thanks!

Raspberry Tilapia

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
I used a light raspberry vinaigrette in place of the vinegar and oil since this vinaigrette was made with EVOO. I only added half the honey called for in the recipe, but wow ... this was really sweet and my husband and I thought the fish could use more seasonings i.e. salt, pepper, garlic ,etc. Might try again with no honey and more seasonings.

Crispy Potato Wedges

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Made as stated in recipe except cut potatoes into 8 slices each and baked 20 minutes on each side. Really easy to make. Next time I might cut back on the pepper and add some other seasonings like rosemary or paprika etc. Easy to make with whatever you're feeling at the time. I used a non stick pan and had no big mess, the pan was very easy to clean up. Next time will follow some reviews that broiled a few minutes at the end.

My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I made exactly as recipe states and will make again. I only baked for 20 minutes. Next time will bake uncovered.

Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I have a similar recipe that I use to make a three layer cake but figured I would try this recipe to make a 9X13. My other recipe only uses 1/2 cup oil and the frosting uses more cool whip and less of the pineapple juice.

Honey Almond Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
Nice subtle tasting chicken recipe. Very easy to prepare. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and followed other reviews by using a little less butter and setting oven to 375 near the end of baking time. Will be making this again.

Cheddar Penne with Sausage and Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
I thought the cheese sauce was bland. I will probably heat up the leftovers with some velveeta to add flavor. My husband said it was okay but I don't think I would make again.

Thyme Green Beans with Almonds

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
I steamed my green beans in the microwave using a steamer bag. Only takes 3-4 minutes. The other change I made was using 1 tsp dried thyme. I am sure it is better with fresh but my husband and I still loved this side dish.

15-Minute Dinner Nachos Supreme

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
Super easy and super good. Makes a lot. I served the toppings on the side which included chopped onions (for my husband). He ate his like a taco salad by crushing the tortilla chips on top. Took a little over 5 minutes for the rice to completely cook. Definitely a do again dinner.

Triple Bypass

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
My son and I loved this recipe. My husband was so so about it. Only thing different I did was slice the Velveeta and layer it on top the last 5 minutes of baking and it melted just fine.
