Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
This was delish and pretty easy to make. I couldn't find the rice flour so I used corn starch like the reviews recommended and it was perfect, I suspect that the restaurant where I used to order this probably used corn starch too since it rated identical! Will definitely make again, I may even try it with chicken since my husband hates shrimp.

Apricot Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Loved this! I agree the butter step is messy but IMO very much worth it! The house smells amazing and it adds that rich butter flavor, I used 1/4 of the butter the recipe called for. The leftovers were wonderful and very versitile definitely make more than you need. Will make again and again.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Wow this was DELISH!! Very very simple too, definitely something that the non-cook in the family could easily throw together in a pinch. I used grey poupon mustard and orange blossom honey and skinless chicken thighs. I loved the flavors used in the recipe, not a combo I would have come up with on my own but so perfect! Thanks for sharing.

Sunday Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
All I have to say is yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum!!!! Came together very easily! I made some minor alterations--I burned the bacon (oops) so I used jimmy deanbreakfast sausage instead. My son is picky about veggies so i left out the green peppers (sure it would be even better if they were in there!!) and used scallions AND onions. I don't like dill so I used adobo instead. Will definitely make this again!! Thanks!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
These were really tasty but they were labor intensive and I (probably in the minority here) had a really tough time getting the chocolate on. I would have only given them three stars but everyone I gave them to (valentine's treats for co-workers) RAVED about them so they got an extra star.

Spaghetti Salad III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010

Sausage-Filled Stars

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
These are so tasty and super easy to make!! A winner for sure. I omitted the green chilies because I couldn't find them at the store, it was still very good but next time I'd like to try it with the chilies. And there will DEIFNITELY be a next time!

Goof Proof Coconut Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This was the first time I made a curry so I liked that it was not over comlicated and was a good base. I doubled the recipe and also added some veggies (carrots, peas & bamboo shoots) The original recipe would have scored higher had it had some of these additions. On a sidse note the curry sauce I bought was very bland (kikkomon brand, thai yellow curry sauce) I won't be buying it again. It was hot but otherwise had very little flavor, I added a lot of salt and some curry powder to make up for it. I'll be making this again and playing around with it.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
We recently bought a house and went from having a ten minute commute to a one hour commute!!! In the interest of time I bought a slow cooker and this is the very first recipe I made it was AWESOME!! I did have a couple problems though 1) It was very greasy, but I believe this was user error, I need to spend more time trimming next time. 2) It needed A LOT of salt, I don't know if this is due to the fact that I had to skim soooo much fat from the top that it got rid of some flavor or not but I did have to add a lot after serving. The gravy was soooo good over mashed potatoes. I'll definitely be making this again!

Big Cheeseburger Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
I really really like this recipe, no it's not going to impress anyone at a dinner party but you can have a tasty dinner on the table in about 25 minutes that the kids will actually eat that's worth 5 stars in my book!! I used a boboli crust, which worked very well; it was quick and the thickness gave it a "bun" feel, I would't do a thin crust with this recipe. I hate pickles so i didn't use any but other than that I did the recipe as is. Next time I would: Make individual size pizzas, there's a lot of stuff on there and cutting the slices was not the easiest thing to do, I'd probably add some crumbled bacon and lastly I'd chop the onion a lot smaller since my toddler can spot it from a mile away but that was user error not the recipes fault. Oh and by the way I actually LOVED the thousand island dressing on there!!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
This recipe is great, definitely my new "go to" potluck dish!! I've used all the fruits listed but i've also added: Pineapple, peaches, nectarines & mandarin oranges (only fruit I used the canned version of). Both times I used apricot preserves. TIPS: I put some ice water and the juice of half a lemon in a bowl and as i chopped the apples I put them in there and drained well at the end. I had no problems with browning and the lemon added a nice little zip. If you have a large group and want to make a little extra without breaking the bank add more apples, they are cheap and add volume. Make sure you make plenty of chips, they go pretty fast (someone dubbed them "churro chips" at my BBQ & the kids all said it was like cinnamon toast crunch) I used two packs of ten and had no leftovers. If you run out of chips, throw the fruit in a pitcher and add some wine, yummy sangria!! Great way to use up the leftovers :) Be prepared to give out the recipe you WILL be asked!!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I made this soup last night so that I could do the diet, but I also had people over so I served it as the first course for dinner. Everyone loved it :) It is very delicious even if you don't plan on eating it all week. I did try some about half an hour before dinner time and thought it was very good but it was missing something--namely a TON of salt but it was still yummy. I went to the cupboard to grab the salt and realized why it was so bland--I forgot to add the onion soup mix! I just threw it in there at the end, stirred well and let it simmer a couple more minutes. I gotta tell you though the soup was still good but I liked it better without the mix. Next time I will skip the mix and just add plain salt. As far as the diet goes, it's my first full day and I've been peeing A LOT, so make sure you do it at a convenient time not a day you have a lot of meetings or anything. And also although volume-wise I’ve eaten more than I usually would I am still hungry so if you plan on doing the diet make sure you have a lot of fruits and veggies to supplement on the appropriate days. Good luck to all with your weight loss and if your just looking for a yummy soup go ahead and give this one a try it’s very tasty!! (although you should only make ¼ of the recipe as it does make A LOT, I used a 14qt pot and there was only a tiny bit of room at the top)

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
What can I say? This is so YUMMY!! My husband (who can barely make a bowl of cereal) actually made it so it didn’t turn out as smooth as I would have liked but it was sweet of him to help me out since I was already making a ton of other things, I didn’t want to insult him by going back and mixing it more. The taste is something like cheesecake. And two ingredients? Can you get any easier???

Cinnamon Snack Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I made this for my family of 4 so I cut the recipe in half. But once I put the coating on it stil seemed a little dry so I made the other half of the coating the recipe originally called for but kept the dry stuff the same; this worked really well. Also the second time I was a little heavy handed with the honey & OJ, which helped get them as "wet" as I wanted. A previous reviewer said the teddy grahams got soggy, I think this is because they let the mixture sit too long out of the oven, also if they tasted it right away they might not have dried out yet. I let mine sit over night and everything was crunchy again. I did make some other adjustments: I used a mix of cheerios & oatmeal squares instead of honey grahams, I used regular raisins since I already had them, I added a little cinnamon since I think the poster may have forgotten it in the recipe and I ommited the almonds because I didn't have any. It turned out REALLY REALLY tasty. I know I'm going to finish the whole bag tonight :) Very cute for the kids and a lot of room to tailor to suit your tastes. Give it a shot!! Oh and by the way i noticed a lot of people left out the ramen, I thought it really added something different to the recipe and the noodles tast great in there, don't be shy about using them!

Bananas Foster Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Yummy yummy yummy!! This was soo soo good I wish I had hidden the leftovers from my family! I made it on Sunday night for dessert to go with the bananas foster II recipe from this site & a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Both were awesome, but honeslty I think it was overkill to make both as they were both so good that it was hard to enjoy them indivdually. Luckily I had about half a tray left and brought a slice (okay fine a huge chunk!) to work for breakfast the next day. HEAVEN!! By the tiem I got home i wanted another slice but sadly my family had gobbled it up. You MUST try this recipe!! *The only thing I changed was using rum instead of banana liquor as I wanted to keep the cost down and already had rum on hand.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Easy to make and surprisingly flavorful! I acidentally (it was almost 1am) put these in an 8x8 instead of a 9x13, big mistake as they took *forever* to bake, almost on hour and they probably could have gone even longer but i was tired. So make sure you use the right size dish. Of course this is my fault not the recipe's. But I didn't give it five stars for two reasons. First off it says use fresh spinach but being as it gets cooked down anyway I saw no benefit to this, next I'll definitely use frozen and save some time. And second, it does taste a little flour-y I might try to scale back the flour next time and add another egg to make up for it. Other than that this recipe is very good, I was tempted to add a little more seasoning but I held back and am glad I did, they taste just fine (seasoning wise) as is. they were easy and a little different, I'll definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe!!

Cheddar Sausage Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
These were easy to make and pretty darn tasty! I made them last night for a road trip today, I had one at room temp this morning and it still tasted great. But definitely best warm. I made some minor changes to the recipe. first off they didn't have any plain cheese soup left at the store, only broccoli & cheese, I definitely would try it this way as the broccoli adds another layer of flavor and a little more texture. Also the sausage I used was Parsley & Cheese flavored, again awesome choice as it added some flavor. I also sprinkled just a little adobo on the sausage as it was cooking. I'm sure the recipe is good as is but trust me there is definitely room to add some flavor in which ever way you'd like. Oh yeah almost forgot, as another reviewer mentioned, the batter is a little dry so I added two eggs to the mixture. I made mine in regular size muffin trays, they don't rise very much so don't be afraid to fill each cup to the top. My picky son ate one and asked for another so you better believe I'll be making these again!!

Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
WOW! This is so yummy :) The best part is that it is SUPER easy to make; with prep and everything it took me about 8 minutes and the results were fabulous!! The only substitution I made was using pecans instead of walnuts. And I cut the bananas in to slices (diagonally for larger slices) so that it would be easier to eat. I made this to go along with the banana foster pudding also from this site. The results were superb *BUT* I wouldn't do both again. Both desserts were good enough to stand alone and the results would have been just as impressive (and much cheaper) had I only made one. Definitely give this one a try you won't be disappointed!
