Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
This was excellent. I used 2 turkey breast tenderloins totalling a little over 1 1/2 lbs but kept all of the other measurements the same - we like strong flavors. Even my 2 year old devoured it and she rarely eats meat. Thanks for the recipe!

Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
This was very good. My husband said "it's a keeper". You definitely need to let the marinade and sauce sit overnight. Neither of them tasted good at all right after making them but after the flavors have blended for a while they taste much better. As other reviewers have mentioned, the sauce does have quite a kick so you'll have to like that - I thought it tasted like there was horseradish in it but I like that.

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Very good! Easy and impressive looking! I just melted the chips and the milk in the microwave for about 1 minute on high then stirred in the vanilla. Also, for me, there was exactly the right amount of fudge filling for 48 cookies. In fact, I almost ran out. I was scraping the bowl to get enough. I must have made my wells deeper then others did. Will definitely make again.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
This was good and would be a nice side dish for a mexican meal, I always have a hard time coming up with side dishes for mexican meals. I only used 1 can of black beans, used a green pepper instead of red, and didn't use the green onions and I doubled the dressing. Will make again.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This is the best yellow cake recipe I've tried so far. I made sure to really beat the sugar and butter well...for a few minutes. I made cupcakes and while they tasted great, they weren't very attractive. They had little holes all over the tops. I don't know if they were air bubbles or what. But, it didn't much matter since I frosted them. I added some cinnamon to half of the batter and frosted with my own buttercream recipe and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top to make a snickerdoodle version. They were so good!

Veal Scaloppini with Lemon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Very good. I used pork tenderloin instead of veal. Sliced and tenderized. I also used panko breadcrumbs instead of italian. I cut back on the lemon juice a little since a lot of people said the lemon was too strong but I could have used the whole amount. I only used about 1/2 the cream b/c as I was adding it, it just seemed like it was going to be too much. But, I think if you followed the recipe exactly, it would still be great. These were just my changes based on what I had and personal preference. The sauce was a little thinner then I expected so I might add more cornstarch next time.

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Excellent and loved how easily and fast it came together. I used half the Old Bay and no celery seed just b/c that's the number one ingredient in Old Bay so I didn't feel like it needed more. I also used 2 1/2 cups fat free half and half and 1 1/2 cups skim milk just b/c that's what I had and it worked just fine. Served with homemade crusty bread (from the book artisan bread in 5 minutes a day - so easy!) and salad and it was a great, filling meal!

Sy's Challah

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This turned out great for me! It was easy, looks beautiful, great texture, and tastes great. I will definitely make it again and may even make several loaves to give as gifts during the holidays. Would be a really nice gift with a jar of homeade jelly. YUM. Try it!

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
Excellent! And easy and pretty healthy to boot! Can't ask for anything more then that. I keep orange juice concentrate in the freezer for recipes like this that call for a little bit of juice, that way I always have it on hand.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Really good. Very cake-like. Made a little healthier by using 3/4 cup bleached whole wheat flour and 1 cup regular white flour and 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup vegetable oil. I also used vanilla yogurt b/c that's what I had so I used half the amount of vanilla extract called for. A good, kid-friendly treat.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Really good. It's not the best thing I've ever made but it is easy, healthy, uses ingredients I have on hand, and is very tasty...from me, that gets 5 stars.

Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
This is really good and so easy to throw together. I used the seasoned salt but ommitted the regular salt just b/c some people said it was too salty and I figured we could add salt to taste to the cooked meat. I also subbed paprika for half of the chili powder b/c I was worried it would be too strong of a chili powder taste for my kids. My hubby made sandwiches with it and added bbq sauce and loved it. I had mine as is and it was delicious. Thanks!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
This was the first time I ever made a cheesecake and it turned out great. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used low fat cream cheese and low fat sour cream. I also added some sugar and cinnamon to the crust. I sprayed pam on the pan before I put the crust in and I only beat the cream cheese, sugar, and milk then mixed the rest by hand. I did set out the cream cheese for a little bit before I got started but it was still pretty cold. I didn't have time to wait for it to come to room temperature. I also put a pan with water in it on the rack below the cheesecake. I was too afraid to put the cheescake in a water bath for fear of water leaking into it. My cake didn't crack, the flavor was great, and it was nice and creamy and not too dense, just how I like it.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I would give this 4 1/2 stars if I could. I thought it was very good but w/ all the great reviews, I guess I expected even better. I thought it was very moist and, while yummy, I thought it could have used a stronger pumpkin and spice flavor. I will make it again though and maybe tweak the recipe some. I followed the recipe exactly except that I made one loaf and 12 muffins only b/c I only have one loaf pan.
