Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
I've been looking for a good and different way to serve green beans - this may be the only way from now on! This sauce is so delicious, a little sweet and a little spicy, and so easy to prepare. I will be making this again and again.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
I'll give it 3 stars because the meat turned out very good, tender and juicy. That was the only good thing about this recipe. I only used 1.3lbs of meat and it took an hour. The "gravy" was horrible - I didn't put any salt on the meat, I used half wine and half low sodium beef broth and added the brown gravy package - the result was a very thin sauce that was horribly salty...I like salty food but this was too much. I will make another attempt at pork tenderloin, I assume the liquid helps keep the meat moist and tender, knowing that I will just pour some chicken broth over next time and add some butter and flour to it when I am done to make a simple good gravy.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
I would give this recipe 3 stars but am giving it 4 because I think with a few adjustments this could be very good. I liked the flavor of the sauce but it turned out a little thick, especially after it sat for a few minutes. The chicken was kind of dry as well. I will try it again cooking it for about 35 minutes at 350 which should remedy the dryness. To thin out the sauce I would add a little more white wine and/or reduce the cream cheese to 3 oz. I don't think I'll put the whole package of Italian dressing in either, it was a little too salty for my taste (and I like things salty!). UPDATE - made this again with these changes: used only 3 oz cream cheese, added 1/3 cup chicken broth so the sauce wasn't so thick, reduced the butter to 2 Tbsp and only added 1 tsp of the italian dressing mix. Turned out very well, easy and tasty dish.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2005
I hated pot roast when I was young, it was always so bland when my mom made it. Well this is not my mom's pot roast! The addition of cream of mushroom soup and an a package of onion soup mix make all the difference. I used beef broth instead of water as other reviews suggested; I thought that would give more flavor. I also added onions, carrots and potatoes. I cooked it on high for about 4 hours and the meat seemed a little tough, next time I will cook it on low all day to see if I can't get it a little more tender.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2005
UPDATE TO MY REVIEW: For those of you who who try this reciped and think the cookies are too cake like or lack flavor, try this - I made these cookies again trying out what I said below. Reduce the flour to 4 cups, increase the sugar to 1 cup, add 2 tsp of salt. The pudding mix obviously makes the cookies more soft and chewy and therefore not quite as much flour is needed. These changes will result in a sweeter more cookie like cookie while still giving you a soft and chewy cookie that won't get hard when it cools. original review: I'm torn between giving this recipe 4 or 5 stars. These are excellent cookies, however they have more of a cake like consistency than cookie. I used chocolate pudding mix as suggested in other reviews which really made them more of a chocolate cookie. I'll try it again with vanilla. They do stay soft after they've cooled. The difference between this and your average Tollhouse cookie is less sugar, no salt and adding the pudding mix. Maybe substituting some of the flour with pudding mix rather than substituting sugar with pudding mix would make these a little sweeter and less cake like. The cookies do not flatten much during baking so you may want to press them down a bit. Overall a great cookie.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2005
This is one of my boyfriends favorite meals, I love it too. I don't use quite as much sour cream - probably 3/4 cup - and add more mozzarella - at least 1 cup. I also make my own spaghetti sauce, not a fan of the stuff straight from the jar. What a great meal, and great leftovers too!
