Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
No one really cared for these. It may have been that I ended up cooking mine in the crock pot but the flavor was a bit off for my family. And the steak seasoning was way over powering. I added chunks of potatoes to the pot, as there was room and it sounded good. This just wasn't for us. Thanks though.

Chicken Cordon Bleu-ish Grilled Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
yum! I took some seasoning blends that I had made up from another recipe ((sorry, have no idea what the blend is)) and coated chicken breasts with it. Grilled them on the George Foreman, adding the ham and cheese. Kids wanted mayo, husband coats all in ketchup and I did the BBQ sauce. All were happy. Such a simple idea but I sure never thought of it! Thanks!!

Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Overall, pretty good. I changed a bit as some of my ingredients weren't available. I used a small can of tomato sauce for the juice...didn't seem to matter. I also had to make these in tortillas...as my bread ended up having a hole. I am excited to try this again on bread!!! ((My family ate these up so it is a great recipe for us!!))

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
These were pretty yummy and easy to make. I think the meat got a little dry while waiting for the peppers to soften so next time I will add everything a little sooner. It was easy to customize for the picky eaters in the house....my son only got the meat with cheese, daughter meat and onions. I also think that the garlic mayo is a must. I had one without and it was pretty boring. ((Had to add ketchup...ewww. LOL))

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
WAY too sweet for our tastes. Well, except for my 5 yr old...he loved it. Meatloaf itself was good but need to adjust the amount of brown sugar next time. Thanks for a good idea...

Powdered Sugar Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
These were simple to make and amazing to eat!!! I am not great with rolled out cookies...I don't have a baker's gene I suppose...so these were great for me. I rolled them in my hand, and pushed them slightly once on the pan. I also used almond extract instead of the vanilla. We are doing these again for a cookie exchange and I will be using orange, almond, lemon, peppermint and rum extracts. An easy way to make a variety of yummy cookies!!! THANKS!!

Caribbean-Spiced Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
OK...this was my first time with a whole fryer chicken. I must have done something a tad bit wrong as it took MUCH longer to cook mine. ((I did have it snug in the baking pan and it was a 4 lb chicken instead...)) BUT....the flavors were AMAZING!!! I shoved the herbs/seasonings under the skin and let it set for about an hour. I did not use rum ((or tequila)) I just used a bit more lime juice to make it the right consistency. I think it still tasted great. I cranked up the oven to 450 for the last 15 minutes so the skin would get crispy. ((My 6 yr old would never eat the skin before and this time she said she couldn't eat her chicken since she ran out of skin...LOL)) We will DEFINITELY be using this again. Thanks!!!!

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I forgot to put he red bell pepper in my marinade but not sure if it really mattered completely. I marinated the chicken for about an hour and then grilled it on my George Foreman. The kids really liked it and I didn't hear any complaints from the hubby ((who had to eat his as leftovers)) The lemon was pretty strong, but with the name it should be expected. We will probably keep this in our rotation. Thanks

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I have to admit that we skipped the spinach totally in this recipe. I figured if my family saw something green in the middle, they would refuse to eat it. That being said...SOMETHING needs to be added to this in order to cut the richness. I did happen to rough chop a red pepper to layer in...but it wasn't nearly enough. I found the recipe very bland...my husband thought it was decent enough. We may try this again, making sure to add another element of flavor somehow. Thanks for a variety on our lasagna recipes.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
I did make a few changes...but just because I wanted to use what was on hand rather than make a trip to the store. I halved the recipe and made it with BS chicken breasts. I cut them in half and grilled them on the George Foreman to make sandwiches out of. I skipped the optional heat elements as my family does not like things too spicy. ((I would have enjoyed it though...)) Everyone LOVED the flavors. My kids ate more than they normally ever do so this is a definite keeper! Thanks

Limehouse Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I have to be honest that I did not make this as the recipe stated. I read it and then began making it while doing 8 different other things. Here is what I did: I used breasts (not thighs) and did not measure any of the ingredients. I only drizzled a tad bit of oil in the pan to brown the chicken (wish I used more) Once I transferred the chicken to the baking dish, I did not have a fresh lime so I just sprinkled more lime juice over the brown sugar. I glanced at the recipe and saw chicken broth so I poured some in the pan and sent it to the oven. I probably didn't put near enough liquid in that was called for...BUT...the chicken still turned out rather well. The flour was a bit gummy in spots but overall, not bad for not reading the directions clearly. I will try this again and really follow the recipe!! Thanks...

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
This was AMAZING. I made sure to rub all the seasonings on and then sear the pork loin before baking. I sprinkled a little extra seasoning over the meat when I added the potatoes. I also added peeled carrot chunks, onion wedges and celery chunks. The meat was super moist and tender...and very flavorful. My kids ((3 & 6)) ate 2 slices each!! WOW...we will definitely make this again!!

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
THANK YOU!!! I was recently stricken with a microwave that no longer wanted to turn. With that, I was no longer able to pop bagged popcorn without the whole thing catching on fire. UGH...not wanting to buy a plug-in popper, I went in search for an easier way to feed my children popcorn. THIS IS IT!!! I have only done it once so far ((and there will be any more times coming)) This time I used vegt. oil and a slight sprinkle of garlic sat. Then after it popped, I added some of the Kernel Seasonings...white cheddar on half and the kettle corn on the other. Both were wonderful...Thank you so much for this great tip!!!

Sweet Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
This was GREAT!! I was making biscuits and gravy for the kids and realized I didn't have any sausage. Unsure of what to do then, I came across this recipe. I have never had a "sweet" gravy before but figured, what the heck. OMG!!! I added some cinnamon to the mix and I swear it tasted like we were eating cinnamon rolls!! I was dying to find out what else I could dunk in this "gravy"...I have to say that this made WAY too much for 3 of us to eat, you know since I didn't pay attention to the serving size. It is SOOO sweet that you can't eat too much of it at once though. But I will make this again for sure...just half sized!! THANKS!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
I took some advice that others had given. I wanted to marinate the chops, as I would be grilling them indoors on the George Foreman. So I cut out the oil, cornstarch and water. I marinated them for a couple hours. I must admit that I ran out of soy so I used all I had which was teriyaki. I think that it still turned out pretty good. I will try this again with soy and decide which I like better. Thanks...

Chesapeake Bay Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I was only able to marinate these for about 2 hours. I cooked them on my George Foreman grill and they were wonderful. They had lots of flavor and still very tender and juicy. Thank you for another pork recipe to put into rotation!!

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This turned out pretty decent. It made LOTS...we normally eat quite a bit of rice so I left the recipe as it was, but we have lots leftover. I also made the mistake of thinking that I could get it all into one pan and I was sadly mistaken. Next time I will cut the amounts in half or separate it into 2 pans to fry. No one in the house but me likes peas so I just used frozen carrots and cut them a little smaller. I also ran out of soy sauce ((as I used it in the general tsao's chicken from this site)) So I made sure to add the extra sesame oil at the end. It was a tad sticky...but that could have been from overcrowding in the pan. We will definitely use this again!! Thanks!!

General Tsao's Chicken II

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This took me twice as long to make but that was mainly because I was overly cautious about the whole process. I bought bone-in thighs so I had to spend extra time cutting those out. And I made double the amount as my family LOVES chinese food. I doubled all the sauce but used less of the chilies ((as I didn't want it too hot for my kiddos)) I cut only one pepper into pieces to put in with the sauce...I think that it needed much more heat as it was pretty sweet. But no major complaints. I will have as much of this prepped as I can next time...and YES, there will definitely be a next time!! =)

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
OK...I changed this up by using ground turkey but the flavor was still so great that the rating will still be high. I didn't measure anything...just eyeballed it. I had about 1.5 lbs of ground turkey and knowing that it can be a bit bland, I added extra of each spice. I made 6 patties out of it. I grilled them on my George Foreman and they turned out GREAT!! Thanks so much...

Spiced Apples

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
These turned out better than I had thought they would. Kids absolutely LOVED them. I didn't have the full 8 apples...but I still used the same amount of red hots. They were red (not pink) in color and took less time to cook in the microwave. I could only eat a few pieces as they were VERY sweet. Next time I might omit (or at least lessen) the amount of sugar. Thanks!!!
