Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Wow, so this recipe is a good one! HOWEVER, like some of the reviewers said, this DEFINITELY takes longer than an hour and a half!!! I should have known just by looking at the ingredients, but it took about 3 hours or so. And also, EXPENSIVE. I only made this because my grandpa came to town and wanted something fancier- and he bought the groceries (had most of the ingredients already), which were a staggering $80!!!!!! for 4 people...ouch. Either way, he appreciated my effort and both him and my husband were raving until we went to bed. I probably won't make this again unless it's a VERY special occasion and someone else is buying!!! But, all in all, great recipe...this is one of the few recipes I've done that I wouldn't have been able to come up with out of my head, and it was succulent. If you have the time and money, it's worth it.

Buffalo Wontons

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
YUMMM, we made these with egg roll wrappers instead of wonton wrappers (not a big difference), and WOW! Yummy, yummy! This is the kind of junk food that we like! We will definitely be making these again! Surprisingly, they weren't even that greasy, and I was concerned that they would be super vinegar-y, but they were perfect after we fried them!

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Delicious! I am pregnant, and this gave me heartburn (not surprising). However, it was yummy and I will still eat the leftovers. It's the perfect mix between sweet and spicy. I was actually expecting it to be salty because of the soy sauce, but it wasn't at all!! I'd love to try it with fresh ingredients, I'm sure it would be even better. I used powdered ginger, onion, and garlic because we were out of fresh. Still yummy, my husband and one year old both loved it.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
substituted milk with coconut creamer and put on "Black Magic Cake" from here. YUM YUM YUM. I'm not a huge chocolate person, but the combination of the cake and this was DECADENT!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
OH MY GOSH. This cake is deserving of the title. Made it exactly according to the recipe (besides decaf coffee) and baked in 2 8x8 pans. I topped it with a frosting from this site "Rich Chocolate Frosting". For the frosting, I substituted coconut flavored creamer for milk. YUM!! All the leftovers went to my husband's work, and they're all wondering when I'm going to make it again. Three of the people were on diets and still couldn't resist a little piece!!! :) I imagine this would be DELICIOUS with some kind of real coconut frosting. It was delicious the way I made it with a hint of coconut in the frosting, too. But, even the cake itself is SO moist and decedent, and I'm not a huge chocolate person!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
I think if you can "loosely base" ingredients your own way with a recipe and it works, it's a good recipe! I didn't have any chili beans, so I used an actual can of pre-made chili, chicken stock instead of beef bouillon, pork and bacon flavored sausage, 1 lb of venison, 2 cans of tomato paste, no celery, a little olive oil, and pretty much everything else the same. I also cooked everything separately then threw it all in a large pot, so it was ready once it was heated up! The flavors were SPOT ON, my husband couldn't get enough and is looking forward to left overs. Thank you for this recipe, it works with even a few different things!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
We made them a little thicker, more like a pita, and they were AMAZING!!!! If they were easier to make I'd do this all the time, they are extremely time consuming just for part of a dish, but definitely worth it for special occasions. It says no substitutions for lard, but we used butter and it worked perfectly! Made them to go with a recipe on here "Chili Potato Burritos". HEAVENLY :)

Unyeasted Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
I am allergic to yeast, and this is the first recipe I've found that really tastes like real bread! We do substitute brown sugar for honey and use all purpose flour. I'm going to try it with only whole wheat flour also. We use this for everything, peanut butter and jelly, with meatballs, etc. It's WONDERFUL!! My husband said this is the closest alternative to yeast bread, and he likes it just the same! It's not too biscuit-like or dry or anything. Really great! Oh, and as a dessert with butter and sugar on top! :D

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!!!! I was in the mood for a mustard style chicken, and my husband wanted bacon, this was PERFECT!! We didn't pound them, just used regular breasts. My husband is also allergic to honey so we used the same amount of brown sugar, and we don't like mushrooms, so didn't used them. We also seared the chicken in the bacon oil rather than using regular oil. So flippin delicious!!!! And actually fairly easy, while the chicken "marinated" and the oven heated, my husband cooked up the bacon and I mixed up the sauce. Then we threw it in, and it cooked up really fast!! This could become a regular!!!! :)

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
These are definitely delicious, very chocolaty and rich. Not cakey at all, but not too fudgy. They are great! Just make sure you use powdered sugar for the frosting, I made that mistake the first time and it actually tasted better, but was SO gritty you couldn't really eat it.

Venison Gyros

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
I marinated these for several hours, but the marinade was a little dry so I added some milk, they turned out awesome! My husband said considering it was venison they still tasted pretty authentic. I'm not a huge gyro person but I did enjoy them. We served them with tzatziki sauce that I made between two recipes on this site. My husband was raving about them, though, and I had several people ask for the recipe. One of the people made it a couple nights later, true to recipe, and her family also raved about them!

Crab Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
We didn't have half and half, so we mixed one and half cups of milk and 1/2 cup of butter. Also cut the cayenne as other reviewers suggested. We used fresh crab leg meat. This is definitely NOT a delicate meal, it's extremely hearty and fattening, but OH SO worth it!!!! It is perfectly thick, I like a nice thick sauce. We separated the crab so it was just in the dish we ate that night. The left overs in the fridge the next day were solid, but melted right back down in the microwave and was still just as good as the night before, even without the crab...I couldn't get enough!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Yum!!! We made ours with organic ingredients, and lemon instead of vinegar...it was delicious! Topped with syrup or jam. They are pretty dense and filling...but not the "make you sick" kind of full.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
We LOVE this recipe, I'm allergic to yeast, so for years I've been searching for a yeast free pizza crust. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because it's too hard to make with these measurements. Rather than throwing a batter in to set, then added all the toppings, we just add one extra cup of flour, then it's like an actual batter and you can throw it right in to the oven. And you can see by the picture I added, that it's not too biscuit-like or anything. That's what I love about this recipe, every other recipe I've found tastes like a biscuit or like a cracker...It is pretty dense, but I like that. This tastes just like pizza with the toppings!!!!!
