Cappuccino on Ice

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
I do not like coffee, unless it has lots of sugar and cream or creamer. I like Starbuck's Frappuccino's, as well as Starbuck's in store creations (the sweet ones, anyway). That said, to me, this recipe was too sweet. I suggest anyone making this the first time cut back on the SCM and gradually add more to their taste.

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
All I can say is WOW! Being from the South, I've had just about every BBQ sauce known. This one had a flavor that just kind of hit the tastebud spot. I imagine posters who were less than thrilled with it have a particular taste they go for in BBQ sauce (like a vinegar-y sauce or something) and this just wasn't that taste. For me, this is THE taste. Note, though, that if you use a good whiskey (like Crown), this AIN'T cheap to make, the only reason I gave 4 * instead of 5*, but perhaps that's unfair.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Very, very good roast. I didn't coat & brown my roast (I used eye round). I also didn't have onion soup mix (used dried onion instead) or vermouth (used white wine). I also added about a 1/2 tsp rosemary (b/c after trying the recipe for the Christmas Beef Stew, I found I LOVE rosemary with my roasts and stew).

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
I think this is a great base recipe, because I could tell by the ingredients list I would have to 'tweak' it a little to suit my tastes. I used chopped vidalia onion instead of garlic, just b/c that's the way I'm used to it. I also added the mustard just 1 teaspoon at at a time, b/c some reviewers described it as too mustardy, and I don't like too much mustard.

Tater Tot Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
a good base recipe. Here's an idea for kicking up the recipe, to keep it from being bland: Instead of sour cream and cheese, put in a jar of (Tostito's brand) Salsa Con Queso, Medium spicy. My husband thought that made it really good. I didn't have but 26 oz of frozen tater tots, so 1 jar was plenty when mixed with 1 can cream of mushroom soup.

Eggnog I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
REALLY good eggnog... and I didn't appreciate the whole "not too thick like other eggnog" thing, until I made this: Now I realize how gross store bought eggnog can be.

Chicken Danielle

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
I'd had this at a restaurant... and then they quit serving it :( When I decided to find a recipe to make it myself, I was so lucky to have tried this one first. OMG! It's so great and so versatile (I made with 2 cans sliced mushrooms, drained and white wine the first time b/c that's all I had and it was still awesome). Great with Garlic Green Beans

Donna's Cheesy Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2005
I don't like quiche. That said, I actually liked this quiche. I made it for my 8 year old, who likes quiche (and what a good protein meal for him), and I sampled it because it smelled better than any quiche I had tried before. I was really surprised. I sauteed the onions in a combination of butter and olive oil; left out the salt. I gave it 5 stars because any quiche I like has to be good:)

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2005
I cut soup in half, baked in too large of a dish for 10 minutes too long and it still was gross and runny. Maybe I did something (else) wrong.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2005
Great starter recipe, though I tweaked it and LOVED the outcome: Added dried basil, dried oregano, dash of garlic powder and a dash of onion powder to the bread crumbs before coating chicken breasts. OMG! Sooooo good with the extra spices.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: May 12, 2005
Added chopped onions to loaf, subtracted brown sugar from topping (I did this the first time I cooked it, based on personal tastes). AWESOME!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
This is similar to a recipe I have, but with cream cheese, so I tried it: This recipe produced a drier, less dense version, and I couldn't taste the cream cheese at all. Anyone making this cake might try adding a small can of evaporated milk, cutting back to 5 eggs, , and substituting 1 stick (or 1/2 cup) butter flavored Crisco for one of the sticks (or 1/2 cup) butter. That's how this recipe deviated from the recipe I have (and, of course, the recipe I have doesn't have cream cheese). I won't make this one again.

Rita's Sweet Holiday Baked Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
I give it a *** instead of * because I did improvise the first go round, so that may be why we didn't eat any... but I truly didn't change that much: Actually, didn't change the glaze at all, and that's what we didn't like.

Christmas Eve Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
Who'd-a-thunk that rosemary could make or break a stew? This is the way I will make it (with my own improvisations to vegetables) from here on out.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
Gotta tell ya', I cheated to the nth degree and this dish still came out great... I used minced, dried garlic instead of fresh, and used the sprinkle parmesan instead of fresh. I decided at the last minute to try this dish, so I didn't have anything but the canned green beans and 'substitutions'. You have to give this recipe a try. It's seriously a keeper! Hubby gives it 100 stars:)
