Ultimate Chocolate Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
Mmmm. This is FANTASTIC. It's terribly rich and melts on the tongue. I used the Starbucks VIA instant coffee for this. Try garnishing with a sprig of mint and/or a slice of strawberry. Use small ramekins or soy sauce bowl sets.

Easy Chicken Cutlets with Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
This was GREAT. I don't really cook with apples, but thought that my son would like it. I had an impromptu visit by a co-worker last night. I served this over rice and he said it was VERY good. I enjoyed it also. It was tasty. Will make more sauce next time to serve over the rice. I made substitutions based on what I had on hand: Asian rice cooking wine instead of sherry and white wine vinegar instead of the marsala wine (I have no idea what that is)... Still tasted GREAT. Don't hesitate to make this. The pan-fried chicken is also very good without the sauce...

Seven-Up™ Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
I used the ingredients, except I used diet Sprite. I also baked this cake as a layer cake instead of a sheet cake, using a round 8 x 4 pan. I baked for about 55 minutes to compensate for the height of the pan. Then I cut it in half to make two layers and filled it with strawberry preserves and a layer of thinly sliced fresh strawberries. A very nice take on strawberry shortcake. I then added lemon extract to the traditional butter cream icing. The cake was moist, and the flavor and moisture from the filling really set this off. So for those of you who don't want to cook the topping for 45 minutes, fill it with low-sugar, high quality fruit preserves and fresh fruit. A chocolate pudding or bananas and a banana pudding snack cup would probably also do well as a filling. Thanks for this great cake recipe. This is a really moist, tasty cake. Mine did not come out light and fluffly, but probably because of the size of the pan I used. Love at first bite.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
I used this marinade for country style pork ribs. Of course, I reducd ethe cooking time for the smaller pieces of meat. Other than that, I made marinade as specified. The meat was FANTASTIC. My husband, who pretends not to eat pork even liked it. The marinade turned into a tasty glaze. Next time I might add a couple of sprinkles of red pepper.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
This is an great recipe. At the suggestion of other reviewers, I tried it both ways. It comes out much better if you salt, pepper, flour, and sear the meat on both sides and add beef broth instead of water. The gravy is rich and tasty right out the crock pot that way. Still, this is a great recipe for an easy meal fit for company. This is a keeper.

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
WONDERFUL!! This is a GREAT. Recipe. I went out on a limb and made it the first time for company which I never do. WOW. It was a HIT. I read all the reviews... Kept the butter and oil the same. Things I changed: I used angel hair. It soaks up more flavor. Added fresh basil and I used sea salt, so I added additional salt to taste (about 1/4 tsp). Added 6oz clam juice and 1/2C white wine. I also added half and half and a little corn starch to thicken. 1 minute before adding the seafood to the pasta, I stirred in 8oz jumbo lump crab meat. Wish I had used all 8oz of clam juice and added more wine because more sauce would've been nice. There was sufficient sauce, but it was so good that more would've been better. I just ate some leftovers sprinkled with fine grated cheddar/jack. I served with steamed spinach and crusty bread. GREAT meal.

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Had I given this review an hour ago, it would've been totally different. My daughter and I tasted these out of the oven and decided the cream cheese was totally overpowering. However, I packed some to go and took them to a friend's house for his opinion. He actually thought they were pretty good. When I returned home, I was hungry and had another. They actually taste better after they've cooled off. Some of the cheese soaks into the bread and takes a bit of the cream cheesiness away... So I would serve these room temperature. I made these as directed except I added garlic salt to the chicken while browning it and added poultry seasoning to the chicken/cheese mixture. I also made 1/2 the batch on a cookie sheet and the other half in a muffin pan to see which I prefered. The cookie sheet produced a "cuter" result which was nice and brown on the bottom. They can also be cut into halves or quarters. The muffin pan puffs must be served whole. If you use the muffin pans, remove them as soon as they cool or they will get soggy at the bottom if you let them sit. I rate it 4 stars because though these taste decent enough, I'm not sure these are worth effort of playing with the crescent roll dough.

Special Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
I made this soup several times. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly. I am giving it five stars because of how easy it is to make. My husband, the bisque snob said it was missing something, but it was still good. The last time I made it I think I got it right. I used fish stock instead of chicken stock, left out the cream, added tarragon, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and sherry. I also added a bit of lumb crab meat. It tasted GREAT, and got RAVE reviews at a family dinner. I have also made this recipe leaving out the cream and using lactose-free milk. It was a treat for people who can't normally eat bisque without suffering an upset (lactose intolerant) stomach. The Lactaid milk seemed to have made it taste kind of "sweet, but I added a bit more cayenne and it was still terrific.

Texas Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
This was a decent spoon bread. I grew up eating spoon breads during my visits to relatives in Virginia. I made it as written except I added another teaspoon of sugar. Next time, I'll add more salt. It was missing something. I might try using 1/2 cream and half milk or maybe more buttter next time. Mine came out a little lumpy though I tried to get all the lumps out when I added the cornmeal. Probably will have to gradually beat in the meal with a whisk or add the cornmeal prior to heating the milk.

Oklahoma Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I am not Southern and I did not come to appreciate the taste of grits until recently. I LOVED these grits! I had some girlfriends over the night I tried this recipe. I served this with collard greens and cornbread. Several of the girls said they thought it was macaroni & cheese. When they found it was grits, they were initially disappointed until they tasted them. The grits got very good reviews. There was one purist among the group that said grits should not be a casserole, but other than her, they were a hit. I also had them for leftovers the next day. I heated them in the microwave and added a pat of butter on top. WOW. According to reviews' suggestions, I used one tablespoon of wocestershire sauce and two teaspoons hot sauce. I also used 8oz Cheddar, 8 oz Velveta. I used quick grits, but I could've cooked the grits until they were ALL THE WAY DONE, which for me is more than 5-6 minutes. Great recipe! Could be used for brunch or dinner. Instead of standing over my grits, I socialized. Thanks.

Baked Fish with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This was good. We enjoyed it. I followed others' advice and sprinkled a little garlic salt and onion powder onto the fish. I didn't have parmesean so I added swiss cheese and a bit of Lawry's and some Old Bay into the white sauce. Be carefult with the salt...a little goes a long way. I almost overdid it. I also grated a bit of cheese on top before placing in the oven. Using a thinner fish like catfish instead of snapper, you can reduce the cooking time a couple of minutes. I cooked for 20 minutes but probably could've cut down the cooking time by a few minutes. As said by others, I kind of expected the shrimp to be overcooked as it was pre-cooked, but it was just right. I think next time, I will double the sauce and serve it over linguine or angel hair pasta.

Roast Beef Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Mmm. This was great. I had leftover roast from Christmas--it wasn't all that great. I chopped the roast and used this recipe minus the red peper flakes. I didn't have any diced gree chillies, so I used a can of Rotel. Man, was this GREAT.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
These mufffins are ok. I didn't have time to read all the reviews and fiddle with the recipe, so I made them exactly according to the recipe. They taste ok. My first impression is that they come out coarse. My 4 year old son--a muffin monster--only ate one. I guess he felt the same way I did.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
OMG. These brownies were SOO good. It was completely quiet in the house. Nobody was talking. Just eating. I left off one cup of sugar and the chocolate chips. Mmm. Perfection with some Breyers vanilla ice cream. I also tried with Hagen Dazs vanilla--equally as wonderful.
