Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
We tried this tonight and thought it was ok. I followed the recipe and the rosemary was a bit strong for us. I will probably make again, only use left rosemary and more garlic.

Olive and Blue Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
I have made this several times and I always have to make myself stop eating it!!! I do think it tastes best if mixed a day ahead.

Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
All the other reviews are correct. This is a great recipe. It travels well too. I made it in the morning and refrigerated it fora few hours. We then took it with us out of town (about a 3 hr. drive) and it was still fantastic. I was afraid it would be too soggy from the dressing, but no problems. Everyone loved it!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
It's so frustrating when you expect a recipe to turn out great and it doesn't. The rating on taste alone is a 4. I mean come on, it's your favorite cake and icing. But the instructions for making the acutal balls are misleading. I formed the balls with my pampered chef cookies scoop so they were all the same size. However, 3 ounces of bark...ha! I used half a package and didn't even finish coating my balls. I was making these for a Christmas party tomorrow so I used the white almond bark and some red sprinkles. I froze my cake balls for about 9 hours today. When I dipped them in the chocolate, they started to leave crumbs in the coating so the almond bark looked dirty and they didn't drain well, so I was left with a clumpy dirty ball that even the red sprinkles couldn't make pretty. Now I have to start over with something new for tomorrow's party.

Banana Peanut Butter Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
I made mini muffins from this recipe. I reduced the heat to 350 and it only took 13 minutes/batch. The only change I made to the recipe was to use 4 bananas since the ones I had were very small. I ended up with 4 1/2 dozen mini muffins. These are perfect for my 14 month old to hold. The peanut butter did overshadow the bananas a bit. They were good, but I still prefer my traditional banana nut bread.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
We love this cake. I followed the recipe to a "T" and it tasted great. Dividing the cake into thirds is a little tricky...my layers were not quite even. But the taste is wonderful. I will make again, but next time I will add a little more coffee to the cake batter and more liquor as the coffe flavor was subtle. But, since that is personal preference, it didn't affect my rating.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
Sooo Good. I browned my chops and then added minced garlic and diced green onions(all I had). Removed the chops to a casserole dish and added the mushrooms. Deglazed the pan with a couple of swirls of white wine (great suggestion). I mixed a 1/2 cup milk the wine, garlic & onion mixture with the soup and poured over chops and mushrooms. Cover and baked. So good with mashed potatoes.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
We will no longer use a box pancake mix. These are great. These will be made again and the only change I will make is to reduce the salt.

Super Bowl Bites

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
We love this recipe! I've made it twice within 2 weeks. I followed the recipe exactly. We did not feel the entire packet of onion soup mix was too much. It was perfect. I even think I can sub lowfat mayo, and it will still be good.

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I've made it twice...once exactly as is and then again with my changes. The first time didn't go over very well. It was very runny. But the second time I made it, I left out the evaporated milk and I accidentally forgot the vinegar and it was creamy and delish!

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
This was a very good calzone, but I don't understand the cheddar cheese. I did change it to mozzerella. I also used basil leaves instead of dried. Next time, though, I will use less of the ricotta and more of the mozz. We like it ooey gooey cheesy!

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Ohhhh....Yummmm!!! I didn't realize just how hard it is to find ladyfingers...impossible, actually. I had to make my own following the recipe from this site. I dipped teh bottom of the ladyfingers in chocolate before adding to the pan (if you do this, spray the pan with non-stick spray before adding). I found this recipe wonderful. I only added about 3/4 of the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture. I piped the rest onto the top of the torte. I then added chocolate dipped strawberries. Very Good Recipe!

Ladyfingers

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I was so glad to find this recipe. Ladyfingers are so difficult to find here. I made these in order to make the "Strawberry Torte" recipe from this site. I made them exactly as written. I did not find them difficult to work with at all. I think it worked out so well b/c I kept the temp. cool so the mixture never got runny. Thanks for a great recipe

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
This is a great quick meal. After spreading the pesto, I added a roasted red pepper to each chicken breast and then the mozzerella. I then folded the breasts and coated them in breadcrumbs and drizzled with a little melted butter. This made a fantastic meal.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I love cranberries, but never liked the canned cranberry sauce. This was sooooo good. Even my mom, who loves the canned stuff, loved it. I never knew it would be this simple to make.

Unbeatable Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This is a great recipe. I've seen a lot of pecan pies that once cut, the center oozes. This one has a great consistency and held up after slicing. Not runny at all.

Chocolate Pecan Pie IV

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
We loved this recipe. I made this one and a regular pecan pie for Thanksgiving. While both were great...us chocoholics fought over this one! It has the perfect amount of chocolate for us, it didn't outshine the fact that it was a pecan pie, but you could definitely taste it.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
Very good and very rich! I followed the recipe except for the alfredo. All I had was jarred sauce and to save a trip to the store that is what I used. I also added extra spinach. I would love to try this with a home-made alfredo sauce.
