Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Uhh, this marinade really IS perfect! I had four thin sliced chicken breasts that I marinaded in it for about five hours. It was AMAZING. I was dubious initially, but I was proven very wrong! It grilled up beautifully. I topped it with an avocado/tomato/onion mixture and my DH said it was Top Chef quality. I highly recommend.

Island-Style Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
This is a favorite at our house. I make the following changes, but it remains pretty true to form. 1. Cook rice in rice cooker & spread on greased cookie sheet to room temperature. 2. Omit sausage (just too much meat for our taste) 3. Use fresh pineapple when available...ammmmazing! 4. Use about 2 tbsp oyster sauce and 1 tbsp soy sauce. Highly recommend! Very tasty!

Horseradish Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
Overall five stars for ease of recipe and tastiness! It was almost too easy to prepare and stick in the oven. The horseradish adds the perfect zing. Definitely a new go to for a quick dinner!

The Best Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I sifted in the baking soda with the flour and it was still very strong in flavor. If I use this recipe again, I will probably cut the baking soda down to 1 tsp. They're flat anyways, can't see it will make a difference other than better flavor. I also used 3 cups oats. I don't see how only 2 cups would suffice. This recipe was just "ehh."

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I can't give this a full five stars because I changed the recipe as others recommended. However, with those changes, this is a definite keeper! They are absolutely delicious. I baked at 350 for 19 minutes. Also, I omitted the butter and used 1/2 cup vegetable oil instead for increased moisture. I added 1 can pureed pumpkin and doubled all the spices. With those changes....PURE YUMMY!!!

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I can't give it a full 5 Star because I fudged a little. I didn't have any balsamic vinegar, so I had to substitute some Merlot for the marinade. I also added one glove of fresh pressed garlic to the marinade. Also, after I finished I realized I had inadvertently omitted the mustard...oops! Anyways, even with those (or because of?) this steak was AWESOME! I served it over fresh garlic mashed potatoes with green beans, and it would DEFINITELY rival any steak house. Overall, I would give what I came up with a 5 Star rating...all the way!

Curried Quinoa

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
This deserves six stars!!! Even my normally picky husband went back for seconds and raved about how delicious it was. I made my quinoa in the rice cooker with the spices, browned the onion and garlic in a frying pan and added peas for some extra veggies. It was amazing. Amazing. This will become a regular in the rotation.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Yummy! I think next time I might try some brown sugar instead of white, but overall a tasty muffin. I added about 1 tsp vanilla, too.

Snickerdoodles III

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
The only thing I chaged was the bake temperature as others suggested since we like our Snickerdoodles chewy. I baked them on 350 for about 12 minutes, and they are PERFECT! I left them on the cookie sheet for about three minutes and put them straight on the rack to cool. Awesome recipe!!!

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Completely awesome!!! This dip is so amazing. We eat it with a freshly sliced Baugette--heavenly! The only thing I change is that I bake for about 5 minutes, and then broil to get a slightly "crispier" top. Also, sometimes I use the pre-shredded parmesean/asiago cheese mix. Adds little more zing. :)

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Baked and froze as directed, took a bit longer in the oven but the outcome was absolutely scrumptious! Even my husband, who does not like banana things, ate a piece. I'll definitely make this one again! PS. I find that I always have extra frosting so I halved the recipe and still had plenty.

Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Very salty. I doubled the garlic and added 1/4 cup sherry for additional flavor, and even with those changes it's still lacking. It grilled up wonderfully compared to a lot of marinades, but unfortunately I won't be making this one again.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Four stars because I made some deviations from the original recipe, but with the changes, an absolute five star!!! I read up before making this and made a couple of simple additions. I brined my chicken (4 1/2 lb) for three hours the night before and let it air dry in the fridge overnight. Before cooking I put four pats of butter (1 tbsp each) under the skin on the breats, and seasoned freely with Seasoning Salt, thyme & garlic powder. I also quartered some red potatoes and chopped up an onion and threw it in before cooking. I put it on high for an hour as called for, and then let it cook on low for another 10 hours. It is fall off the bone wonderful, juicy and tender. The ease of the recipe is what makes it a true keeper! My husband isn't a fan of whole chicken, and he said it's hands down one of the best things I've made off on allrecipes.com. Yay!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
I've been looking for the perfect boxed cake cookies, and I think I've found it! I used Devil's Food Cake (chocolate cake), and mint chips (Andes Creme de Menthe chips). If you're a mint person, you will LOVE the combo! The most easy and tasty cookie, I highly recommend!

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Amazing! I substituted fresh pressed garlic and chopped white onion since I didn't have green onions, and it is terrific! A real grilling staple around here. I love using it on kabobs, because they are able to really soak up the flavor.
