Pecan Praline Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
My husband made these last night and they are delicious. I think maybe someone didn't bake them. A friend gave us some, then gave us the recipe and the Web site. Awesome.....

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
BOY OH BOY! We had this last night. Super fantastic delicious recipe. We followed the recipe exactly with the exception of rubbing the chops with garlic (3 large cloves minced) then rubbed with the mixture. Then seared the chops in the skillet to get some of the marinade in the sauce. Then I finished the chops on the grill. Also doubled the sauce mixture and it took 20-25 min. to cook down, which is a must. I'm not a fan of any kind of vinegar, but this was great. Will make it again and again. Larry

Country Seed Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
A delicious hearty bread. Everyone loved it. Have made it twice and it came out great both times, following recipe exactly. Didn't toast the seeds the second time (mistake), but we toasted the bread for breakfast and it brought out the flavor of the seeds. Will make this bread again and again.

Margaritas

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2007
My husband has used this recipe from south Texas for years. He calls it "Border Buttermilk." Everyone loves it and we've given the recipe to many people.

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
I made this for dinner tonight, followed the recipe exactly. It was rather disappointing. Very dry and bland. Neither my hubby nor I cared much for it.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
This is a great recipe. We are on the SB Diet and I used low fat cheese. I now make it in place of the quiche cups listed in the diet book. Much easier to make. Maybe I'll add mushrooms next time. Super recipe.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
WONDERFUL!!! Definitely a five-stars recipe. I followed the recipe exactly as it is written, except since my roast was 3.5 lbs. I added a little more wine and water. Made small slits in the meat with the end of a paring knife and poked garlic slices into the slits all around the roast. Amazingly, it was done in 4 hrs. and was delicious. It made lots of gravy which I thickened a little with corn starch. Served it with mashed spuds and broccoli. The next evening we had it again on open face sandwiches with lots of gravy. YUM! My DH is still raving about it.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
YUM! Hubby and I loved this. Great flavor. It was just a tad hot for me tho, but ok for him. I doubled the sauce, but it got kinda thick, so I think next time I'll cut down on the cornstarch (and maybe the red pepper flakes, too.) But it's a keeper.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Definitely a keeper! I made this for New Year's Day and invited another couple for dinner. Everyone loved this dish. I didn't have bacon, but had two ham shank bones that I used instead. It was delicious and we had them for leftovers tonight with cornbread.

Orange Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
I made this exactly to the recipe, except used chicken breast which I had on hand. We thought it was ok, but not exceptional.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
I made this for company exactly to the recipe. I must be honest and say it was quite dissapointing. We make our own jalapeno poppers and it didn't even come close to tasting like them. After I doctored it up with more jalapenos, more green chilis and a cup of grated cheddar, it tasted alot better.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
I made this exactly to the recipe. It was very tender, but we thought it could have had more flavor--kinda bland without the BBQ sauce.

Beef Barley Lentil Soup

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
Made this exactly as the recipe states, with the exception of adding 2 garlic cloves. The soup was tasteless and too many tomatoes. The recipe makes a huge amount. I should have made only 1/2 to try it out.
