Cinnamon Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2003
I thought that this was just o.k. but my husband enjoyed it a lot. I would say it feeds closer to 8 to 10 people. We had a lot of leftovers. The brown sugar is a nice addition but if you make it, skip on the "gravy" mixture. If you do make the gravy, cut back on salt by using one regular bouillon cube and 2 packets of the low sodium bouillon. It cuts the sodium down to about 1/3 of the original. Over all, we found the gravy to be kind of odd tasting.

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2003
These were delicious and so quick and easy to make. Next time I will add about another 1/2 Tbsp. of the cocoa powder. I used mini chocolate chips. I found I needed exactly 30 mins. to bake these. The first batch I only baked for 25 mins. and when they cooled, they were tacky to the touch and stuck together in the cookie jar. At 30 mins., they came out perfectly!

Beefy Mushroom Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2003
Good soup that was easy to prepare. I substituted 1/2 of the water with 1/2 cup of red wine, as others suggested. It definitely needs more barley, at least a 1/2 cup. I also added a little more sour cream than was called for. To save on sodium, I used one regular bouillon cube and 2 pkts. of bouillon powder, which only have 5 mg. of sodium per packet. A good hearty winter soup.

Grilled Gyro Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2003
These were awesome and the whole family loved them. I wouldn't change a thing. I was a little concerned because the meat mixture was very moist but the patties held together nicely and cooked up perfectly. I will make these, instead of the same old hamburgers, at our next cookout. Great recipe, Theresa! Thanks!

Ignacio's Super Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2003
I always eat my pb & j sandwiches toasted but this was a nice little twist. It is very filling. I had 1/2 a sandwich, along with a banana and a small salad and I was stuffed. I used a fresh baked Italian bread. Very creative!

Egg Rolls a la Paye

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2003
These were very good and we all enjoyed them but we all agreed we prefer the taste of shredded cabbage over the bean sprouts. Also, I think cabbage is easier to work with and the wraps are easier to fold than with the sprouts. Because others complained of the salt content, I substituted the garlic salt for 1/8 tsp. garlic powder. Tasted perfect. This recipe is a keeper!

Chewy Drizzled Cinnamon Chips Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
Good cookie, but a little time consuming to make. For a change of pace, I drizzled 1/2 of the cookies with the melted cinnamon chips and the other 1/2 with melted milk chocoate chips. Definitely a good Christmas cookie.

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
Yum! This was really good and very spicy. I served it over grilled chicken. I used a little more than 1/3 cup chopped cilantro and it was just a bit strong, but still quite good. Next time, I will cut it back to 1/3 cup or slightly less. To save on sodium, I used 1/2 tsp. of celery salt and 1/2 tsp. of celery seed. Also ate it with tortilla chips. This is thick like a dip, not really a sauce.

Tender Potato Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
I'm not sure if I did something wrong but I had to add A LOT more flour to this dough to get it to a kneading consistency. It started out more like a batter. They then seemed to be lacking a little flavor. Other reviews have been quite favorable, however, so I may give them a try another time.

Amusement Park Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2003
This was really moist and baked up perfectly in my iron skillet but I found it to be a little too sweet for my liking. I did, however, like the buttery flavor of it. Different from any other cornbread recipe I have.

Split Pea Soup Atu

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2003
This was very good and although easy, a little time consuming. I should have read the reviews ahead of time, next time I will cut the water down by several cups. It's a little watery, but not bad. Also, to save on sodium, I used low-sodium chicken broth and for the bouillon, I used 3 regular cubes and 3 packets of low-sodium powder type. It came out perfectly. The recipe could definitely use more ham. Either use very meaty ham hocks or 1 very meaty ham bone, or just buy a thick slice from the meat dept., cut it up and add it in. Very good soup, though!

Catfish Pecan

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
I thought this was just o.k. I don't think I like the comination of pecans and cornmeal. I took others' recommedations and spiced it up a bit. I used 1 tsp. cajun seasoning, 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes, and just a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. I found it to be way too spicy, the rest of the family didn't seem to mind too much. I have a similar recipe to this, minus the pecans, I'll probably just stick with that. Sorry.

Sesame Tempura Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
I thought this was just o.k. but because my husband and daughter seemed to like it a lot and it was very easy to make, I will probably make it again. The batter seemed extremely runny so not much stuck to the beans and I didn't think they had much flavor. I know I prepared the recipe correctly so I don't know what happened. The soy sauce mixture is good.

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
This was surprisingly good for such a "throw-together" kind of meal. I took others' recommendations and halved the sour cream and cream cheese. It came out perfect. Use low-salt ingredients where you can. The whole family really enjoyed it. Thanks, Jessica!

Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
This is the 3rd "fgt" recipe that I have tried and the only one where the batter stayed on during frying! Very good recipe. I used very firm gr. tomatoes - I would recommend using some that have a little "give" to them. I found that the batter was really enough to cover about 2 tomatoes. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil in the frying pan. I cut the salt in 1/2 and it definitely needed more - I would use the entire amt. Also, I sprinkled the tomatoes with Pecorino cheese after frying and served with spaghetti sauce. My husband and I loved it, the kids weren't too crazy about it. Great recipe, Beth!

Cornflake Slice

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
Although not as good as a rice crispy, we still thought these were quite tasty. To be on the safe side, I gave the pan a quick shot of butter-flavored spray oil and did the same with my spatula to make spreading in the pan easier. I think next time I would use a 9" square pan because it spreads out quite thin in the 9" x 13" pan. Thanks, Rob!

Hearty Potato, Bacon and Onion Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
Very good soup and easy to make. I used low-fat and no-fat sour cream and couldn't taste a difference.

Baked Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
O.K. but kind of bland. The coating could use something extra like pepper. I would say the prep time is closer to 20, not 10, and is a little messy to make. We used ranch dressing to dip it in, which was o.k., marinara sauce probably would have been better. Definitely cook for the full amt. of time - I cut mine to about 1/3" and baked 15 mins. per side and it was still just a little "tough."

Bacon Cheeseburger Upside Down Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
This was very good and very easy to make. I followed the recipe, except I also added pepper to the topping mixture, and thought it tasted great, although we all agreed it didn't really remind us of pizza. Maybe with mozzarella cheese instead or a little sausage.

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
This was one of those rare recipes that I tried that the WHOLE family really liked. I have a picky 12 yr. old who rarely likes anything and even he complimented it! I used baby portobello mushrooms and found we only needed about 4 oz. of the cheese. Some used the dressing, others did not. It was fabulous - deserves more than 5 stars!
