Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
Based on the exact recipe, I give it a 4 star. The recipe works perfectly as is but is just lacking a little zing. After I made some adjustments for more flavoring, I give it 5 stars for sure! I added 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. sage along with the green onions (which I doubled) and 1 tbs. minced garlic because I put garlic in anything I possibly can. :-)Instead of adding bacon into the mix, I like to stuff a small piece of sausage in the middle after they come out of the oven. (see my picture) I also used crescent dough in place of biscuit dough, I found the big fluffy biscuit dough to be a little too doughy by the time the eggs were done.

Mozzarella-Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
I made the recipe EXACTLY as stated above. The meatballs held together well, but I felt they were a bit bland. Great recipe otherwise! The second time I made them, I adjusted them slightly for stronger flavor. I add about 1 tbs. Italian seasoning and 1/2 tsp. salt. I also like to double the pesto and garlic cloves for a stronger flavor. I fry the meatballs until brown and crisp on all sides in a pan with the olive oil instead of baking them, I like a more browned exterior per my preference. I finish the meatballs off by simmering them in my home made tomato sauce for longer than 2 mins, I like simmering them for 30 mins - 1 hour, this helps them get tender and flavorful. :-)

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2014
Excellent biscuits. I used 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter because I don't buy shortening. I also added 1tbs. lemon juice to my milk, for a buttermilk tang. I always let the dough sit in the fridge for a few hours before baking and make sure to handle the dough as little as possible. I also grate the cold butter into the flour mixture instead of cutting it, this gives it a yummy crumbly result. Thanks for the recipe :-)

Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
Very delicious, full of authentic flavor. I didn't have rice vinegar, so I substituted apple cider vinegar. I also added extra garlic as that's my preference :-) Thank you for the recipe
