Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
I am having trouble rating the recipe, because as is I found the sauce to be really good, but the meatballs were flavourless and dry. For sauce I would rate 4/5 but for the meatballs I would rate it 2/5. I made modifications to the sauce following some advice from thedailygourmet review as well as well as some of my own modifications. The sauce went from good to amazing. For the meatballs I used the existing recipe as a base but added a lot to it For sauce - Used 2 28oz cans of diced Italian seasoned tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes. Added 1 tsp of italian seasoning, 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp garlic powder Reduced salt to 1 1/3tsp of salt as I found 2 tsp way too salty (and I love salt). I also found the original recipe too runny, so I used two cans of tomato paste. Next time I might try using tomato sauce I also used immersion blender to purée the sauce For Meatballs- Used 1/2 lb lean ground beef and 1/2 lb lean ground pork Used italian seasoned breadcrumbs. Added 2 cloves of minced garlic Added 1 tsp of marjoram Increased parmesan cheese to 1 tablespoon Added 1 tsp of salt Increased black pepper to 1/2 tsp Added 1/2 cup of milk. Next time I think I will reduce the amount of breadcrumbs to 1/2 cup as I think it is too much and then reduce the amount of milk to 1/4 cup Browned meatballs in frying pan before adding to sauce. (Although this is a personal choice, it's the way I grew up with) I found these meatballs having way more flavour and nice and juicy

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2013
Wow fantastic. I made these for thanksgiving dinner, and it was pretty much unanimous, almost everyone said it was the best dinner rolls they have ever had. They were incredibly light and fluffy. I am going to try and make cinnamon buns with this recipe at Christmas

Cajun Spiced Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Absolutely love this recipe, my favorite chop recipe I have had so far I played around with the spices ratios a bit (little less cayenne pepper, bit more cumin), replaced garlic salt with garlic powder, and then added salt, but that is just my personal preference I also used real butter instead of olive oil, and as it was frying I then basted it with the butter which made it taste even better and nice and moist I also let the chops rest for about 10 minutes

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
Fantastic! Super easy and quick. I did not have Italian bread crumbs so I just added some italian seasoning to regular bread crumbs MI also only had boneless chops so I used that instead. Kitchen smelled amazing and it tasted wonderful!

Italian Style Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Great recipe! Only thing is WAY to much breading. You could 1/2 the amount and still have 2x as much as you need.

Krista's Sticky Honey Garlic Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
GREAT recipe with a few tweaks. VERY sweet, if you love sweet stuff (like me) perfect! otherwise you may want to reduce amount of sugar by 1/4 cup. Not enough corn starch/too much water.. I had to add more cornstarch to make sauce thicker. Also, wayyyy to much sauce. You could easily 1/2 it (or double the wings.. I suggest this instead of halfing the sauce :) ) I also added some hot sauce to kick it up a notch.., a couple more cloves of garlic, and more ginger root.. just my personal preference.
