Cream Cheese, Garlic, and Chive Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
I seriously love cream cheese, but the filling for this chicken was just too much for me. Next time, I'll probably tweak the filling and use half cream cheese and half feta cheese, just to cut the overpowering taste/texture of the cream cheese. I'll also add more garlic and some onion instead of the chives... maybe add some parsley for color. I used regular bacon and topped each piece of chicken with parmesan cheese, which got brown and crispy and yummy.

Embarrassingly Easy Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
I've tried this recipe three times. The first time I used diet Pepsi and ketchup. It came out grossly sweet and I threw it away. A friend told me to be sure to use Diet Coke, so the second time I did. It was very blah; tasted like sweet ketchup to me but I thought it could have potential. So the third time I tried to liven it up with 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 a minced onion, 1/2 a minced green pepper, white pepper, and a dash of worstershire sauce. The additions actually made it worse. I'm sorry, but this absolutely didn't work for me.

Blueberries n' Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
YUM!! Here's what I did differently: I layered it with crust, cream cheese filling, pie filling, and crust crumbles, no top cream layer. I also reduced the milk to 3 tbsp. and folded a tub of Cool Whip into the cream cheese layer. It kept its shape wonderfully and was so creamy and wonderful... When I make this again, I have to be sure to take it to some kind of function for others to share, or I'll eat the whole thing.

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
These are great cookies, and a very forgiving recipe! I reluctantly had to use margarine (it was all I had) for these and they still turned out great. I followed previous suggestions and used 1/4 cup extra margarine, and I had to make my own confectioner's sugar in the blender because I didn't have any. Instead of vanilla and almond extracts, I used the contents of two vanilla beans. Also tinted them pink for a baby shower. I'll definitely make these again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
The first time I made this recipe, it was perfect. Each subsequent attempt, though, has yielded completely FLAT cookies, even after chilling the dough for hours. Tried it twice last night and had to throw out both batches. Finally on my third attempt, I substituted shortening for half the butter and they held a fairly decent shape. Next time I'll sub 2/3 of the butter with shortening and they should be pretty good. The flavor isn't very exciting and I don't think the pudding adds anything to the recipe. Next time I'll add extra vanilla.

Josephine's Puerto Rican Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
Fabulous. I made it with chicken breasts and substituted Sazon con culantro y achiote for the achiote seeds. Excellent, excellent, excellent.

Hot Shrimp Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
This sounds really strange, but it was very, very good and very refreshing. I used a mix of baby greens with fresh herbs for the lettuce portion of the salad. The combination of the shrimp (I grilled them) and the mild sweetness of the blueberries was surprisingly good. I did think the dressing had too much mint and next time I'll only use a small amount. I will also add some finely minced onion to the dressing and possibly some capers. This dish was a great surprise!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
I'm giving this recipe three stars because, in my opinion, this was just an average chocolate chip cookie recipe, and the cookies didn't come out like I expected at all. I made this twice - the first time, I followed the recipe EXACTLY and the cookies came out thin, flat, and crunchy with only a tiny chewy spot in the middle (I didn't overbake). The second time, I tried using softened butter instead of melted butter, and they came out only marginally better. I've had much better-tasting cookies than these, and they just weren't what the recipe said they'd be. Won't be making these again. Very disappointed.

Sweet Pepper Pasta Toss

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
YUM!!!!! This was great. I cut back on the peppers (personal preference) and used 1/3 cup fresh parsley and 1/3 cup fresh basil. This was wonderful and got rave reviews.

Chicken Tortilla Soup IV

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
This was okay, in my opinion. Instead of frying the tortilla strips, I buy plain tortilla chips and throw them in. I had to add more chili powder and omitted the corn (personal preference). It wasn't the best tortilla soup I've had, but it wasn't the worst. I'd make it again with some tweaking.

Butter Beef

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
I always cook beef in the slow cooker, and I've never had the need to add a stick of butter to it. It was lots of unnecessary fat that made the dish too greasy and didn't add to the flavor of the beef at all. You're much better off using a can of cream of mushroom soup along with the packet of soup mix to get a good gravy. Won't make this again.

Sesame Seed Cookies III

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
When these cookies first came out of the oven, I thought they were too sweet and I also thought that coating them completely in sesame seeds was too much. After they sat for a day, they had virtually no taste/sweetness at all. They were pretty cookies, but eating one was like chewing on a bland crunchy biscuit covered with sesame seeds. It definitely needed something extra.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: May 5, 2006
I am so happy with this recipe! It was so easy... I accidentally spilled some of the water bath into the flan before baking it and it still turned out great. I made two flans: one exactly as the recipe stated, and for the second I only used 4 eggs and substituted 12 oz mixed-berry flavored cream cheese for the 8 oz. regular. Tastes exactly like the cheese flan a friend used to make in Puerto Rico. This is definitely a keeper.

Spicy Italian Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
This was okay, but nothing special. I love the ingredients in the dressing but I didn't like the dressing itself.. somehow, it was too tangy yet too bland at the same time. I used organic baby greens with fresh dill, parsley and basil, and that helped. I probably won't make this again.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
YUM YUM YUM. Yum. I made this at a friend's house and forgot to grab the beef bouillon, so instead I used 1 1/2 tsp each soy sauce and Worstershire sauce. I also used about 1 tbsp. regular prepared mustard instead of the mustard powder. This is the best.. the best! The coating on the outside didn't really get as sticky as I normally like, so next time I'll probably cook it for 15-20 minutes instead of the recommended 10 minutes. This is definitely a keeper!

Hershey's ® Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
I made this for friends at a Valentine's dinner; they liked it but I wasn't happy with this mousse. The texture was way too stiff and not creamy enough; if I try it again, I'll cut the amount of gelatin in half. Normally, I love the taste of cocoa as opposed to the taste of chocolate (if that makes sense), but not in this recipe. The flavor was over-the-top, and combined with the texture this just wasn't great. I'll probably hunt for a recipe using melted baking chocolate instead.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2006
Yummmmm... I messed with the recipe, though. I doubled the recipe and used five roma tomatoes, 1/2 cup cream cheese, 1/3 cup mayo, 1 cup cheddar cheese, about a ton of bacon, 3 chopped green onions, and I used crescent roll dough instead of regular biscuit dough. I also had to add a little extra salt. This... is... AWESOME. Definitely, definitely a keeper.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for, and the recipe did exactly what it said. It dried quickly and stayed put on the cookies.
