Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
Nothing special about this one! My husband said it was pleasant. My word would be bland.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

This was average. Not great as it claims to be.

Honey Duck

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
I am never cooking a duck again! I don't know if it is because I used a frozen duck (thawed first, of course) or what the problem was, but this was tough and gamey. I used a thermometer to ensure I did not overcook the duck as other reviews said to be careful not to overcook. My husband ate his supper (the rest of us had our potatoes and vegetables) but even he said he won't eat the leftovers. A waste of honey and butter!

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
The chocolate-covered caramels I used didn't flatten out when baked so it made for a really hard center. The dough in this recipe is just okay, not great. I think the concept of this cookie could be a good idea, this just isn't the kind of recipe I am going to keep for years.

Roasted Garlic Tzatziki

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
This is the first time I have made tzatziki and it certainly won't be the last! Oh, such a good snack on a hot summer day. I was surprised how much liquid came out of the yogurt - probably at least a cup or more. It would have been nice to have some information on how to roast garlic - some of us have never done it and don't know how! I looked for this info on this site, and wasn't very pleased with the recipe I found. Any tips on how to do this well?

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
These taste good when you really want cookies and don't have much time to make them, but I really prefer baked cookies. The oats don't quite have the right texture when they are raw. Also, they are a bit too crumbly for my liking - I need cookies that can stand up to a young child holding it.

Mint Tea Punch

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
We have enjoyed this a few times now. Very easy to make but tastes so exotic. My 3-year-old calls it "juice" because it is so good!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
I have always made "Greek" salad with just chopped veggies and feta cheese. But I knew something was missing. This is it! Wow - it makes my combination of vegetables really sing and finally taste Greek! Thank-you.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
Wonderful when something this good for you also tastes really good. Thank-you for the suggestion to replace olives with sun-dried tomatoes. I've never liked the taste of olives, so the sun-dried tomatoes gives the salad the kick it would have been missing without either of these ingredients. I had compliments at the potluck I brought this salad to as well.

Sweet Washington Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Absolutely fabulous! Don't need to change a thing. At first I thought only 2 cups of fruit would not be enough, since other fruit pie recipes call for 4 cups of fruit, but this is perfect. Because the cherries are sweet and hold their shape, more is unnecessary and would probably just be too much of a good sweet thing. I baked mine for 25 minutes at 425 degrees, and then another 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Then the crust doesn't over-brown. Thank-you so much for a wonderful summer treat!

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
As is, this recipe is not one I would make again. The second time I made it, (half the recipe,) I used 2 cans French green beans seasoned with red peppers. (Didn't even know I was buying the seasoned kind, but it worked out great!) I like mushroom soup in casseroles, but in this one it was way too much mushroom flavor. I happened to have a can of cream of asparagus soup in my cupboard, so I used that. Then I had some leftover canned evaporated milk, so that went in too. I omitted the soy sauce, and continued as directed. This time, it was marvelous! The asparagus soup went much better with the green beans and the French beans were much better for a soft, creamy vegetable dish. Enjoy these changes, those who thought this "classic" dish didn't deserve to be "classic."

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This is amazing. I made it with a 3 1/2 pound roast. Once I had pulled the meat apart and removed the fat, I put it back in the slow cooker with about 1 cup of the meat juices (fat removed) and bar-b-que sauce from the Spoiled Baby Back Ribs recipe on this site. After this was warmed up it was just perfect for supper. It would need more bar-b-que sauce if I had more meat. So easy to make!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This was not as special as I was hoping. The dressing was okay, the cheese rather unnecessary, so overall not a special holiday salad. Makes way too much dressing for the amount of salad too.

Cheddar Pear Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
No good at all the first day. Very weird to mix a mild pear flavor with a strong cheese flavor. It was much better the second and third day. Still, not enough to make it again.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
The flavor was minimally okay, the texture of the chicken dry and hard to swallow. I'm surprised about all the good reviews I read. My husband thought it was okay because he liked the dark meat this way, but the white meat was no good at all.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I usually double this recipe and freeze them. They taste best right out of the freezer, and so convenient when company comes. I add 1 1/4 tsp vanilla to a doubled recipe. The big difference is cooking temperature and time: Bake at 275 degrees for 35-40 minutes until golden.

Special Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Ohh... finally moist pork! Mine always ends up dry, so it was lovely to make tasty, melt-in-your mouth pork tenderloin. I used home-made applesauce made with Empire apples (from Ontario) and it was such a pleasant, homey meal. We'll make this again next time tenderloin goes on sale!
