Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
Absolutely delicious! Yes, it does emit a strong smell of vinegar while cooking, but it's certainly worth it. I followed the recipe exactly as stated, however I cooked on high for 5 1/2 hours and it was just perfect. You can do this if you don't have the whole 12 hours to cook this in.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I didn't think this was anything special. I could have probably bought storebought sauce with the same flavors, and without the cleanup involved by using a crockpot. Won't make again.

Mountain Dew™ Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
Probably the moistest cake I have ever baked! It literally reminded me of "tres leches" cake where milk is poured into cake and its cakey yet incredibly moist. I was worried it might be too sweet, but I think it was delicious just as it was. It's a very dense cake, so it's hard to eat too many of these. Reminds me of springtime or summer time!

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
This recipe was delicious. I marinated the chicken overnight in italian dressing which kept the chicken itself juicy and flavorful. I added lots of fresh garlic to the spinach mix - maybe 4 or 5 cloves. And instead of pimentos, I used fire roasted red peppers because they were easily available and inexpensive. Turned out delicious and pretty! I'll make again.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
YUM. I don't make seafood that often, but this recipe makes me want to start! It's super easy, I just threw all the ingredients into a ziplog bag and shook it up really well. I let it marinade for about 2 hours before skewering and then grilling. I also used the jumbo prawns as it seems like they would work better for skewering, but this added to the grilling time. I served with grilled asparagus and pasta tossed with parmesan and garlic powder. Perfect summer night meal.

Parmesan Herb Bread

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Pretty good bread. You'll have to like the taste of oregeno for you to like this bread. Also, the recipe doesn't call for enough flour. I had to add probably another 1.5 cups in order to get it to the constancy I could work with. I also didn't have a round casserole dish, so I just shaped it and put it on a greased cookie sheet and it worked just fine. It was delicious toasted with double tomato bruschetta on top.

Taco Seasoning III

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Can't mess this one up! I needed a mexican seasoning for chicken that would ultimately be shredded and go into a mexican casserole, so I made this only used onion powder, garlic poder, and omitted the cumin since I didn't have any. I was very loose with the measuring and it still turned out great. I threw in a dash of cayenne for some heat and my chicken turned out delicious. Can't screw this one up, people! :)

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
The stuffing for these is GREAT! Tastes very authentic thai. I used the spring roll wrappers that are round and must be soaked, and I wonder if that caused a bit of a problem I experienced. They didn't really crisp up as much as I had liked, and they also stuck to the pan really bad - some broke apart when I pulled them off. But the taste was magnificent, and my boyfriend devoured these. I served with bottled Peanut Chile sauce and also Sweet Chile sauce. You could make your own from this site, or buy it bottled at the store. I'll try these with egg-roll wrappers since they seem to be easier to find.

Spicy Basil Chicken

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
DELICIOUS! I am a huge Thai food fan because of the complex flavors Thai dishes have. This was my first try at making Thai and I must say I was really impressed! It tasted robust and flavorful, was super easy to make. The ingredients were sort of difficult to find at a smaller supermarket, but I went to Cost Plus World Market and found the chile oil, oyster sauce, etc. Worth the hunt! I love that its all made in one pan - less clean up! I served over sticky rice. The only comment is that it came out very spicy when made as directed. I personally love spiciness, so does my boyfriend, but his mom couldn't eat it due to the heat. You can omit the hot peppers or use olive oil instead of chile oil to take it down a notch. I'll make again!

Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I haven't made actual bread items in years, but I wanted to give the dough hook some use from my Kitchenaid. So I followed this recipe except changed a few things. Instead of cutting dough into 32 pieces, I cut into 16 which made bigger pretzels. This is perfect for using these as rolls for pretzel sandwiches. I also brushed with egg mixture and salt, but once they came out of the oven I also put melted butter on top. Make sure you store these in a airtight container/bag and you can easily store or freeze them and warm up in mixrowave for about 15 seconds. Super moist and chewy. I'll make these again!

Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This was pretty good. I found I had to cook a bit longer for the rice to cook 100% through, however I doubt it was the recipe's fault (probably mine.) I'll make again, maybe throwing some dill in next time.

Olive Chicken II

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
Delicious. The sauce is very runny, however so I suggest thickening it. I used cornstarch which worked OK. The flavor was delicious, and the green olive flavor was not overpowering as I had thought they would be. I used canned tomatoes with basil and chopped them up for extra flavor. Will be making again, next time with pasta (not rice).

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
I don't know if a recipe could possibly be any more perfect. This was a recipe my mom referred me to after she raved about it herself. I let it marinate 24 hours, and although the balsamic vinegar did turn it a darker color, nobody minded at all. It really soaked up all of the flavors and made SO much that I was able to use the leftovers for a second loaf of bread the next time! This will be considered one of my all-time favorite recipes.

My Chicken Milano

Very delicious and SUPER SUPER easy to make, definitely great when you are in a hurry. I made this exactly as directed, and we loved the resuls. I served "Double Tomato Bruschetta" for an appetizer.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Very delicious, very moist, easy to make. I used about 6 bananas that I had let over-ripen for about 1.5 weeks. I do suggest adding nuts though, I realize it would really add to the bread. Goes a long way!

Baklava

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
OK, this recipe really is fool-proof!!! I love greek food, and wanted to make this to see if I could. I have never worked with Phyllo before, and didn't realize you needed to thaw it COMPLETELY before working with it. Well, needless to say I didn't and because it was frozen, trying to pull sheets off caused it to shred. But I kept on going, figuring I didn't want to waste it. Sure enough, even laying shreds of dough STILL TURNED OUT PERFECT! They have lasted over a week, and I love that they didn't turn into bricks of overly sweet sugar-messes that some baklava seems to be. They have just the right amount of sweetness and they make a huge pan! I'll make these again for Christmas. Oh by the way, use pecans and walnuts! They are divine!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Pretty darn good, except you won't like these if you don't like cilantro. I always make this half and half (with and without the cilantro.) On my half with cilantro, I also use low fat sour cream and cheese, and they turn out delicious. I've made this with both flour tortillas, and corn tortillas, and surprisingly enough I prefer the flour. I like how they turn out chewy, the corn tortillas just fell apart. Make as directed or omit the cilantro!

Mexican Corn Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I was excited to make this as a side dish for enchiladas and beans, but I was pretty disapointed in the lack of flavor. It was nice to have fresh chopped veggies on the plate, but it really lacked seasoning and flavor. I thought the spicy salsa and fresh jalapenos added would do the trick, but it wasn't enough. :(

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I baked them for my boyfriend (firefighter in training) to bring to his firefighter buddies. They were hit! I'd even give them five stars except they were a pain to make. I even tried to flatten the chocolate dough and plop a peanut butter mixture on top, then wrap around. Still pretty hard to cover the peanut butter. My chocolate dough didn't turn out too crumbly, but I followed the directions EXACTLY and I realize that by mixing the wet ingredients into the dry VERY thoroughly with my kitchenaid, they went from dry to moist - maybe this is the problem others are running into, they are undermixing. Anyhow, They cracked when I flattened so for that reason alone I may add a little extra water or maybe a couple of tblspoons of sour cream to avoid that. The end result was worth the effort! Don't skip the sugar on top...and these go great with milk.

Apricot Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I had been itchin' to make muffins for a few weeks now, and my mom sent me this recipe. I was a little worried because I don't like cakey muffins, I like them much more dense. Well, I added some dried cranberries in place of half of the apricots, and also added about 1/2 cup of walnuts. THEY TURNED OUT SO DELICIOUS! Perfect consistancy. I should note that I totally forgot to add the 1 egg, but I wonder if thats why they were the dense consistancy I liked. Still good minus the egg and less fat! I'll continue to do sans egg.
