Insanely Amazing Jalapeno Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
I made this for our tree trimming and was quite disappointed not only in the texture, but the flavor. The texture was very much like the mayo that you put in it. I'm not sure what to subsitute, but the dip wasn't thick at all and was SO spicy that all you could taste were the jalapeno's.

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
This was nice and creamy, but I expected it to have more flavor. It was a very bland eggnog. I think I will add less cream next time and bump up the spices.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
What am I doing wrong!! I was so excited to try these cookies and mine turned out nothing like all the pictures for this recipe. First off, the dough was so gooey that I could barely roll them in sugar. Secondly, the cookies puffed up nicely during baking, but after cooling for the 5 minutes they were completely flat, with no cracks. And finally after they cooled, the centers looked uncooked and were a different color than the edges. I cooked them for the full amount of time. They tasted fine, but looked just awful. I plan to try again, but I really don't know what to do differently to achieve the success everyone else seemed to have.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
This was good aside from the fact that it was SOOOO salty we could barely eat it. I do not remember making any other pork loin that turned out this way. I added only the amount of salt called for, so I don't know why it was so salty. I will try again, but will eliminate the salt entirely.

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I loved this because I can put it all in the crock pot first thing in the morning, go about my day and have a wonderful completed meal when I return home at 5pm. Few observations: the recipe definitely meant to say 8 hours on LOW, I can't imagine how it would have turned out otherwise, nor can I think of any crock pot recipe that is cooked THAT long on high. Secondly, use beef broth instead of water, it gives that much more flavor. Finally, I took out the roast and let it rest for 20 minutes and threw the cabbage in. It was perfectly cooked in the 20 minutes and not soggy at all.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
The sauce for this recipe is phenomenal, however, our ribs were very very chewy and hard. I was hoping for fall off the bone type of ribs. I think it might have been the lower quality of the ribs we purchased, so we will try again with better quality ribs. I also want to find a different method where you do more than just wrap them in foil and bake them, so that the cooking method will also lead to a more succulent rib. . ..still looking.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
These were great. I have consistently hated boxed mixes, especially ones that ask you to "just add water." I craved the soft fluffly pancakes I had as a child and this recipe fulfilled that. The only change I made was to use actual buttermilk instead of making the "sour milk" because I had it in the fridge.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This frosting was a wonderful compliment to the "One Bowl Chocolate Cake" recipe from this site. It is smooth, creamy and has a wonderful deep chocolate flavor. The only change I made was to use whipping cream instead of the milk. It made the frosting just a little fluffier and not so dense. Also, if you refrigerate the cake, make sure to bring it to room temperature before serving because the icing gets a little hard. This is a keeper though for sure.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I could not believe how moist this cake was. I doubled the recipe and made it in a sheet pan for a work birthday party and the entire thing was gone in 30 minutes. I covered it in "Rich Chocolate frosting" from this site and everyone loved it. The only change I made was using buttermilk in place of the milk, which I think made the cake even richer and more delicious. I will definitely be trying this one again.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I have one word to describe these pretzels: HEAVEN. These were a huge hit at my Oktoberfest party and I am definitely keeping this recipe forever. They were not difficult to make at all and I had no problems getting them rolled into long ropes and shaped into pretzels. My tips are: (1) I found that dipping them in the water/soda solution when they were a long rope was much easier than forming them first and then dipping them. (2) Definitely blot on a paper towel briefly after dipping them in the water so the water solution doesn't puddle on the baking sheet. (3) You can easily make them the night before you need them. Just skip putting salt on them, bake them off, cool and store them in an airtight container. When you are ready to serve, take a basting brush and brush a small amount of water on them, sprinkle with salt and bake at 300 degrees for 10 minutes. They were perfectly crispy and tasted like I had just made them. Divine!!

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I had never made or even tried warm german potato salad before, but it was the perfect side dish idea for our Oktoberfest party so I tried this recipe. It was wonderful! I followed it exactly. The only change I will make in the future is to use red potatoes with the skins on. I used peeled baking potatoes which fell apart too easily.

Black Forest Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I made cupcakes with the recipe and used the icing part as a filling inside the cupcake. While the chocolate cupcakes were delicious with the whipped cream on top, the filling was watery and lost its icing consistency. I also didn't like the canned cherries. I should have used maraschino cherries in the filling instead. I refrigerated them and the filling firmed up some, but I think I will skip it all together next time.

Bratwurst, Potato and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
We did not like this combination of ingredients at all. My DH wanted to try it because he really likes sausage soups and after reading the recipe I knew it would be bland so we added lots of fennel seeds and sage and while that helped we couldn't get past the watery, milky broth and chewy cabbage. We were able to finish one bowl, but the rest had to be thrown away. We will not be making this again.

Apricot Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This was really delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written. The only problem I had was getting the butter to stick to the loin. I patted it dry first, but the butter just continued to come off on my hands, so I mixed the butter with the salt, pepper and herbs and was then able to get it to stick to the pork. I will definitely make this again, we loved the contrast of the sweet preserves against the salty pork.

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
This was really good. I did a search for a pie using cream cheese and strawberries and this was the best one that came up. I was a bit iffy about the grenadine, but once the whole pie was done, you couldn't even taste the sickly sweet cherry grenadine flavor. Its more lends to making the strawberry layer thicker. I didn't have a pie crust, so I layered multiple sheets of phyllo dough in a tart pan and pre=baked them to create a nice shell for the filling. We finished the whole thing in two days.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I didn't realize that "chewy and fudgy" meant a raw consistency. Mine were definitely cooked. The toothpick came out clean and the top was nice and firm. But when I served these the next day, not only were they hard, dry and crumbly, they tasted raw and grainy throughout. A terrible texture. I will continue my hunt for the perfect brownie.

Garlic Cheese Grits with Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I used this recipe as more of a method than following it exactly, so my rating is based on that. For the changes I incorporated was to use chicken stock instead of water for my grits, I shredded 6 oz of a block of hot pepper cheese instead of the garlic cheese and I also stirred in 1/4 cup of heavy cream into my grits with the cheese. 2lbs of shrimp is way too much, even for 4 servings, so I always use 1-1/2 lbs of shrimp completely peeled, since having the tails on makes this dish very messy to eat. To finish the dish, I sprinkled cooked and crumbled bacon and sliced green onions over the top.....AMAZING....
