Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I've made this as written a couple of times and everyone loves it. If you don't want to use the grill, it works great in the oven as others have said. This last time, I put the marinated filets and the marinade in a small corning dish. I cooked it in a preheated 425 oven for 5 minutes to get the marinade hot, put on the glass lid and cooked it another 10 - perfect!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
I made this recipe exactly as listed. This was a great way to cook the pork - it came out beautifully in terms of texture. It was tender and perfectly cooked. It just didn't have great flavor and seemed a little sour. I think the vinegar made it sour and the chicken broth diluted the flavor of the bbq sauce. I will make pulled pork with this process again but will continue to look for better flavor. So many ingredients - just ok taste.

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I made this recipe EXACTLY as written and we really enjoyed it. Why it wasn't a 5: - the resulting dish came out of the oven looking dry, green - I mixed things around to make the topping look creamy - I could have used a little more flavor - garlic, salt, freshly ground pepper chicken was moist - flavor was great!

Campbell's® Easy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
Not much more to say - delicious. I didn't bother warming the tortillas - I used fresh, flour tortillas and they rolled very easily and stayed rolled.

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Very similar to the Scotcharoo recipe (spelled with an "a") on this site. A nice alternative to Rice Krispie Treats. Try microwaving the peanut butter mixture. It takes less than three minutes-stir after each 45 seconds to 1 minute.

Scotcharoos

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Delicious - a nice alternative to Rice Krispie Treats. Three recommendations and one caution: 1) I decided to try microwaving the corn syrup, peanut butter and sugar and it worked well. I did one minute at a time, stirring between minutes, and only for 3 minutes total. 2) To spread the mixture in your 13x9 pan, use a spatula well-sprayed with a butter-flavored Pam or Crisco. It let me pack the mixture firmly and make an even flat top, which helps the chocolate set evenly. 3) I did up the chips to 3/4 of a cup of each and that put a perfect amount of "icing" on top. The caution: sprinkling the chips on top of the pb mixture without melting them first (as suggested in other reviews) did not work for me - they did not melt enough to spread. I may not have moved quickly enough so the pb mixture wasn't very warm. I need to melt the chips in the microwave.

Souvlaki

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly except I stir fried the pork instead of grilling it. It was very good - even leftover and made into a wrap. It was very easy and I will make it again. I gave it a four because it could have used a little more flavor.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
Very good flavor. I made it EXACTLY as instructed and I won't change a thing next time. It was not too salty at all (I used store brand teriyaki sauce).

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
After reading the reviews, I was ready to love this recipe. I did not care for it all. When I made it, I added only 1 1/2 tablespoons of hot sauce to start. The hot sauce taste was so strong that I added another 4 ounces of cream cheese to tone it down. At that point, I thought the mixture tasted okay. After setting overnight, however, the roll-ups tasted like black olive in hot sauce - that's it. My husband likes black olives and hot sauce but did not care for this combo. They were convenient, good looking and held their shape but next time I'll try ranch mix, cream cheese, bacon and cheddar cheese!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2005
These taste GREAT but I have to downgrade the rating for the fact that my husband doesn't want to make them again because of the mess and the clumping factor (he's the deep fat fryer in the family). If you use a fry daddy (even a big one), it is very difficult to keep the fries separated even adding them one at a time. Perhaps using a skillet with a wider surface, as in the recipe, will help, but we prefer to deep fry in a fry daddy because it's so much easier to control the temperature. Regardless, if you don't mind the trouble of cooking them, you, your family and your guests will really like them.

Crab Croissant-wiches

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2005
Very good but not a "wow". Fool-proof and tasty - could use more flavor but I would definitely make for company because I don't think you can mess this one up and they taste good. For a cocktail party, I would try to figure out how to cut up the dough to make a bite-size appetizer - these are large for hors d’oeuvres (the size of a crescent roll). As suggested, the leftover mixture made a great spread for crackers (actually cracker - I stuffed my rolls pretty full).

Shrimp Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2004
This was very good and easy - I left out the bean sprouts and added a little diced ham. Delicious! I cut the recipe to 1/3 but still used one egg and it worked just fine. Tasted like what you get from a restaurant.

Best Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2004
Delicious with satay. VERY fast and easy. Good for South Beach Diet - just use natural peanut butter and Splenda instead of sugar.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
A big hit at work just as they are or with a little icing. I've been asked for the recipe more than once. Suggestion: while still warm spread a small dollop of buttercream frosting (butter, milk, conf. sugar, vanilla) on top to form a glaze. I did use butter rather than margarine - worked great.

Indonesian Pork Satay

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
LOVED the meat, not the sauce. My husband raved! One caveat - you do need to like salty things, which we do. Suggestion: since we didn't care for the sauce (the boiled marinade), next time I would marinate double the meat or make half the marinade. I used a no cook peanut sauce from this site that another reviewer recommended - it was fast and delicious. We'll have this again and again.
