Sugar Snap Peas

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
This is a GREAT recipe. The natural flavor of the sugar snaps are utmost. One thing to remember, which I didn't do my first time making this recipe, is to remove and discard the stem end and the string from each pod. If you don't do this you will be chewing on the stem and string and will have to spit it out which is not too appealing, other than that this is a very, very good vegetable dish. Way to go CC!!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
These were real yummy. A good crispy onion ring. Left overs are excellent re-heated due to the crisp factor. I did add some garlic powder to the flour mixture and soaked the onions rings in water (this process of soaking takes the strong oniony flavor out of onions if that's what you prefer. The water coating also helped the flour mixture to adhere better). The only problem I had with this recipe was that after you coat the onion rings with flour mixture, it doesn't realy specify how much you flour mixture you are left with. I had to make more flour mixture in order to have enough when adding egg mixture (maybe this was the case due to my decision to soak in water. Overall these were realy GREAT and I'll def. make it again. Thanks Jeanharmon:)

Easy Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This was a really tasty slow cooker ham. I especially loved that on a Monday, I came home from work and had a great tasting ham to serve due to the wonders of a crock pot. I had my misgiving due to some of the negative reviews stating that it was dry, too much spices, etc. I didn't follow the recipe exactly (I know, I know, it's not fair to judge a recipe if you're changing it, but let's face it we all do it), but next time, out of curiosity I will follow as stated, except for the amount of apple cider which I used only 1 c. and next time will use 1/2. Here's what I did: I used 1/2 to 3/4 of the amount of spices, used only about 1/2 tsp of nutmeg because nutmeg can be overpowering in my opinion. Omitted the maple syrup, orange peel, horseradish, vanilla and the whole cloves. Added about 1 1/2 T dry mustard. I wanted a more traditional spiced ham and it realy came out moist and delicioso. For those who are looking for an oven looking ham where the meat doesn't fall off the bone, than place it in the oven in the traditional manner. But if you want mouth watering easy pleasy ham when you come in the door after a long day's work, or for that matter - enjoy yourself on the weekend instead of slaving in the kitchen, this is the recipe for you. And yes, like most of you, my ham jutted out of the top a bit so I covered it with foil, placed the lid over it, duct taped the lid to the pot and weighed the lid down with a jar. Used a smoked pre-cooked Smithfield picnic shoulder

Kim's Prime Rib

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
I used the concept of the soy, worcestershire, etc. in this recipe and added it to my version of Beef Roast. I've been making roast by making slits into the meat and squeezing in garlic cloves sliced in half and coating with Lipton Onion Soup Mix. This time I followed Kim's recipe and coated with the Lipton Onion Soup Mix (I cut down on the soy because Lipton Onion Soup Mix already has salt. The flavor was outstanding. Highly recommend this recipe. Thx.

Lahmahjoon (Armenian Pizza)

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This recipe is realy fabulous with the additions I've made which gives it, I believe a more authentic flavor. Used more chopped peppers (red and green), cause I had them & needed to use them up. Instead of the parsley, used 1 full bunch of cilantro finely chopped. Added more cumin (3/4-1 tablespoon), 2 tablespoons of mint. 1 lb pizza dough, cut in 4 equal pieces (used more dough, cause makes more then 4 Lahmahjoon). Sauted the onions with peppers until golden, then added the garlic (oh yeah, 1-2 T). Once vegies were cooked to release their flavor, added the pre-cooked ground lamb. Please add salt and pepper to taste, without it, it will be blah. brush olive oil lightly over the doug. Spread the meat thinly over each pizza. Once baked, sprinkle some lemon juice over the top. Yummy in our tummies is what my family experienced. My husband is Armenian and he couldn't stop eating it & remarked on how close it is to an Armenian store which we've bought these from located in Watertown, MA.

Brown Sugar and Port Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I wish I could have given this sauce 5 stars but felt that it came under that. I think that the sauce had too much port wine taste therefore adding to it's acidity and contributed to a lack of smooth taste. I've made cranberry sauce in the past which contained port wine that was marvelous, but unfortunately I can't find the recipe. I'll keep looking though.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This chicken salad was realy fab!! I did add some extra seasoning, etc...I know, I know, one should judge according to the exact recipe, but unless it's not baking, a savory recipe can be made according to each taste. So anyway, I added about 1/2 c. of finely chopped red onion. Instead of the seasoning salt I subbed Adobo all purpose seasoning (Goya), some hot sauce to taste (just a bit to give it some zing in the background), 1/2 lime juice, walnuts (toasted) instead of the pecans, red bell peppers instead of the green (cause I didn't have any). It was realy very Good.

The Real Deal Korean Beef Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I was aprehensive at first with the 2 T of black pepper so I cut the black pepper in half. I didn't use the Korean style ribs, but rather used the American full bone short ribs. I think using the American version doesn't allow for as short cooking time on the grill. Mine came out a bit tough (reason for a 4 star), therefore I placed them in the oven for a couple of hours at low temp approximately 300-325 degrees for 2 hours w/ marinade in a tightly covered casserole dish. They came out NICE. If baking with marinade, definately use half of the black pepper. If grilling you can follow the amount of pepper as recipe states. Will make again following the oven low temp oven method instead. Next time, I will bake at 250 for even better tenderness.

Emily's Famous Tiramisu

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
This recipe is truly Devine. If you are a tiramisu lover, this is the one. I was asked to make a tiramisu for an Italian themed dinner party. I loke tiramisu, but it normally isn't one of my favorit deserts. This tiramisu is definately on my list of favorites now. Making your own lady fingers is well worth it. I didn't use all of the rum as called for in the cream, but instead used a little bit of the rum and added a bit of rum extract. It was perfectly well balanced in flavor. Next time I make it though I will make extra of the lady fingers. They weren't enough of them to circle around the timamisu all the way. Thx. Emily

Marinated Peppers

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
I've been looking for a recipe like this for a some years. The very Italian parents of one of my friends use to make this from the peppers in their garden. Each time I was served these my mouth salivated. I did add too much basil (no fault of the recipe), didn't think you could do that, but next time I will use less. Thxxxxxxx a million times for this most memorable recipe and for bringing such nice memories back into my life.

Wilted Arugula and Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
This recipe wasn't bad. It was good. Though I love arugula like crazy, not so sure if I love it as much cooked. I think I would have like it more if it were spinach instead, but of course this is a personal preference and not a reflection on cooked arugula.

Mexican Spicy Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Oh MY!! I loved this salad!!! SO VERY GOOD. I didn't use the Splenda but rather used white sugar to taste. Added extra cilantro (about a bunch), extra cumin and chili powder to taste and added a touch of paprika. I've been looking for a bean salad like this for some time....and now, I've found it. It's a KEEPER.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Alot better than what I expected. While it was cooking, I didn't think it would come out as great as the reviews stated. But once I placed the meat onto french bread, laced with provolone and american cheese, slightly broiled, it was fabulous. Next time I will make more....we are a family of 5 and it was barely enough for all of us that I had to spread the meat thin so as to have enough (and 1 of my children is 8 and eats small portions). It's a KEEPER!!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Yumarooneee!!!!!!!!!!! Storing the chicken wings in the refrigerator for 60 to 90 min. definately is a must for making these super crispy. Also the making sure the oil is hot enough and cooking them for the lenghth of time the recipe calls for gives them its success.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
This was a very good recipe and would def. make it again. The reason why I wouldn't give it a 5 star is that it lacked I believe sauted onions at the beginning. I think that would add "omph" to this recipe. I'll try and let ya know.

Herb Biscuit Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
These are scrumptiously Good & ever so easy. Ya can't go wrong in making these. The only problem I had is that I used the large biscuits (Grandes), therefore because I had a larger quantity in the pan, they took longer to make. A definate "KEEPER"
