Copycat of Starbucks® Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
Not sure why but mine didn't turn out moist. It was very dry and not like Starbucks at all. Perhaps adding lemon pudding mix, apple sauce or switching to real butter instead of oil might help. Will not make again

The Best Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
This was my best gravy ever. I am giving it only 4 stars cause I deviate it from the recipe as some others suggested and put one brown and one turkey gravy mix instead.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
I was expecting a lot from this recipe with all the reviews. Everyone thought it had a weird texture. Flavor was bland despite I added bacon and flavored cheeses. Will not make again.

Chipotle Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Very dry. Not creamy at all. The cheese mixed with tomato and chipotle flavor didn't go together on this recipe

Blue Cheese Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
Mmmmmm these were so good. The only thing I added was about two TBS of water to help steam the potatoes and didnt add the onion until the potatoes were halfway done. Yum! Perfect as steak pairings

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
This cookie came out pretty and crispy on the edges, however something is off with the sugar. Maybe the whole cup of packed brown sugar is too much. I never thought I would say this but this cookie is wayyyyyyy too sweet. Maybe just a cup of brown sugar without packing it or maybe reduce the white sugar. :(

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I am giving this 3 stars because the precooking in water is not necessary. Second time around, I just precooked the whole potato for a few minutes just to soften a bit to make the potato easier to slice. The secret is to keep them dry. Dry them well with a paper towel if necessary. Then cut them into 1/2 to 3/4 slices. Make sure they are square as the points burn easily if too pointy. Toss them in a ziplock bag with the olive oil then on another bag dust them slightly with cornstarch before putting then in the oven. This will make them crispy.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
This cheesecake comes out ugly and cracks all over the placeif you follow this recipe, I should have read the reviews and bake this in a cookie sheet water bath. I would try again and post my review. Do not follow this recipe as stated, it yields dissapointing results!!!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I would give these 5 stars or even 10 for presentation but 1 minus in taste. These are absolutely adorable and every one loves looking at them but not eating them. I tried the Onion/Chives cream cheese and even added a bit of garlic salt but still very bland. A pain to make but if your goal is to bring smiles to people faces then this is for you

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Instead of the bouillon I used a mix of cream of chicken and half and half to make a sauce and adjusted the salt to my liking. Added some fennel seeds to the ground beef for sausage flavor as I didn't have sausage and also added previously sauteed and pureed, green peppers, onion, garlic, oregano and a bit of tomato sauce to the beef.

Don Struble's Puerto Rican Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
This is absolutely Puerto Rican. I am not sure why doing a variation with the Worcestershire instead of the vinegar etc would make it less authentic, but this is what we know as Carne Mechada but this one is made with Pork. It should have been a boneless pork roast but you can do the same with Beef. This is a Pork Roast too not to be confused with the so called Pernil Asado. Some people put pepperonis,some ham etc. This is why there are recipes. Everyone would make them a bit different. I marinade the meat with oregano, olive oil etc, and then stuff it. Really good and flavorful.

Pineapple Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
My family didn't care much about this one or the pineapple sauce. I personally thought it was too dry or not creamy enough, so I kept adding more milk to it. It was also not sweet enough by itself, thus the reason for the pineapple sauce I guess. The pineapple sause taste reminded me of the baby food pineapple dessert. I don't think I might be making this again.

Broccoli Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
I am becoming dissapointed with this site or maybe I am just having bad luck with bad recipes lately. This was barely edible. We ate it, but it was nothing special or tasty. Not sure what all the fuzz was about.

Brie Pecan Rollups with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
Sorry, but I was really dissapointed with this recipe after all the good reviews. It was absolutely tasteless and everyone at home was forced to eat it basically, as it was the only thing available for dinner. My boyfriend suggested stuffing it with blue cheese instead, which sounded like a good idea.If I EVER make anything similar to this recipe again, I would use chives flavored cream cheese and finely ground sausage or bacon in the mixture to add flavor to it and bake it of course.

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
After the rave reviews, and as much as I like blue cheese, I couldn't wait to try this recipe. I was dissapointed though. I am giving it three stars cause in all fairness my boyfriend like it and we could finish it. I didn't care for the sauce. The blue cheese on the steak was good but not spectacular. I cooked the steak following the recipe and it was overcooked for our taste and we are not rare meat eaters. I would have prefer a little pinkness in the middle. If I ever try this again, I will cook it only for 10 minutes or so as almost 20 minutes (searing,oven and broiler time) is too much for filet mignon to start with anyway.

Fiery Baked Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Sorry, but I didn't like this recipe at all. I just finished preparing this and I am afraid they would go to waste. I was hesitant about the cinnamon and I should have go with my gut feelings and omitted it. I like cinammon just not on beans. Ugh Yikes!! As this was cooking I knew I was going to hate it. It smell gross!!. To try to masquerade the cinammon taste I added onion powder, garlic, cilantro, liquid smoke, bell pepper and some ham flavored seasoning I had. Still the cinammon taste lingered a bit and it just taste terrible!!! Sorry :(. It sounded really good. Maybe next time, if I ever make this again, I will omit the cinammon

Calamari

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Something is missing from this recipe and have to give it a bad review cause it would have been a waste of calamari. Flavor was good but after reading the complains here, I saw this on another recipe and decided to follow the advice. Try soaking the calamari anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours in Buttermilk if you have time (optional). Then drain the calamari and save the buttermilk. Coat the calamari with flour, pass thru the buttermilk and then flour again, then fry it. The batter will stay and it won't be wasted calamari.

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
Very nice presentation. I ended up with a very pretty, three colored layers pie as I used a chocolate graham pie crust instead of the regular. My daughter requested it :) as she loves chocolate. The cheesecake was a little to rich for me, but everyone liked it. If you like very rich cheesecake and pumpkin pie, then this is definitly a cheesecake heaven and a keeper for cheesecake/pumpkin pie lovers ***Edited to say I am making more of these to give away as presents on thanksgiving day to my neighbors. I disagree with the reviewer who stated this is plain looking. How about some whip cream on top for god' sake!! Looks don't make a recipe. What is more plain looking than a plain pumpkin pie??? Nothing. This one is pretty and have layers of colors!!!!

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
Wow, I was really reluctant to try this recipe and ruin the turkey as I like my turkey well seasoned and marinated. We had an early Thanksgiving dinner this weekend since we were not all going to be together in Thanksgiving day in a few days so I decided to make a stress free, easy early Thanksgiving day so I gave this recipe a try. I am glad I did. I was suprised how good the turkey came out. I didn't have to baste. I just glazed it during the last hour with a pomegranate glaze, I usually put in all my turkeys and I ended up with the tastiest, perfectly browned, moist turkey I ever hoped for. The only changes I made was to use Kosher salt, added sprigs of fresh rosemary and a bit of garlic and Onion powder to the water. Thanks for sharing!
