BBQ Potato Roast

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
Glad I tried this before serving it to company. There was very little flavor, and they are not visually appealing. Lots of prep for little reward.

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 3, 2004
This was good. It is flavorful, but not a "wow" recipe. No one commented on it at my party.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2004
This may be more about my taste than the recipe, but I could not even taste the shrimp for the batter and coconut. I discovered that I (and my husband and kids) prefer simpler recipes for shrimp--herbs, lemon etc. My recommendation would be to try a different recipe if you love the taste of shrimp.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
Excellent fudge. I doubled the recipe and used a 9x13-inch pan (foil sprayed with a non-stick coating, of course). I had some SKOR candy pieces on hand, so while the fudge was hot, I pressed a thick layer onto the top of 50% of the fudge--received rave reviews from my testers, although they liked the plain too. The fudge is so dark, it is hard to believe that the chocolate added is mostly milk--next time I will increase the amount of milk & decrease the amount of semi-sweet. Also, I might add a bit of butter extract next time to give it a more buttery flavor.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
Excellent! I wish I had made this prior to reading the last few reviews--do NOT dump your bag of popcorn into your mixing vessel, or you will have lots of unpopped kernels--a VERY bad thing. I used 50% dark/50% light brown sugar and a low butter popcorn (2 bags was just right). The prior suggestion of using tongs is a great one! I mixed in a paper grocery bag and baked on foil-lined & sprayed cookie sheets, so clean-up was minimal. I will however, not cook it as long next time (maybe only 30 mins @ 200). In the latter part of cooking, the caramel started to melt off the popcorn. The pooling made the final product less attractive.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
I served this at a Halloween party so I added orange food coloring--looked very cute--made a stem to look like a pumpkin. The flavor was okay. I would put this in a "serve to kids" category. I would not serve this at a party of adults.

Spring Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
Excellent! The flavors really work. I upped the grapes to 1 1/2 cups each and added a bit more green onions and raisins (golden) to balance the flavors. I also added a couple drops of orange oil (can use zest) to the dressing, which I think made the salad shine--raves from everyone. Note: I would not toss the dressing into the salad too far in advance--the more crisp, the better.

Absolutely Ultimate Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2003
Sorry to be a dissenting vote. I tried this on chicken, and nobody liked it. I thought I would try it again because of the rave reviews. Again, not a 'hit'. Perhaps it would taste better on beef.

Chocolate Cake Shot

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
I was very disappointed. The drink is sweet, cloyingly so. These did not taste like chocolate...to me--just sweet. I am glad I tried these before serving them to guests.

Very Fruity Rum Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
Yeah! I tried 3 different drinks from this site and this was BY FAR the best. *Using spiced rum is the key*. Thank you to previous reviewers for that suggestion! I skipped the banana liqueur--was better without it. Also, based on another reviewers suggestion, I diluted my concentrates with 50% water/50% lemon-lime soda. The punch is orange, which coordinates nicely with a fall party.

Daddy Charles's Spooley

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
This was SO disappointing. I added lots more fresh lemon, and orange juice, along with more wine and lemon-lime soda. It was still marginal.

Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2003
I tried one batch with olive oil, the other with butter. To my GREAT surprise, my 5 year old daughter and myself preferred the croutons made with olive oil! (and we are "butter people".) I warmed the olive oil in a small pan, then added a crushed garlic clove; took it off the heat and let it "steep" for 20 minutes while I cut the bread--perfect amount of garlic flavor (and no mincing of garlic!)

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2003
Excellent. I used unsalted butter and mixed in a bit of Kosher salt--nice balance of flavors. I might try whipping it next time for a fluffier texture.

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2003
Very good. I added more berries, and it still fit well into the pie dish. Next time I would squeeze a tablespoon or so of lemon juice on top for a needed brightness. I used 1/4 cup tapioca in lieu of the flour. I did brush some beaten egg onto the bottom crust to keep it from becoming soggy.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2003
Excellent! Per suggestions, I used 1/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 2/3 cup vinegar--I had Trader Joe's Orange Muscat Vinegar on hand, which tasted lovely! Don't forget to add freshly ground pepper and course salt to taste. Would recommend 1/2 cup almonds for more crunch--1/4 cup was not enough for our tastes. P.S. I tried it with mandarin oranges the 2nd night--not nearly as good as with strawberries.

Chili I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2003
I have given VERY few recipes 5 stars...in my life, this one deserves it!!!! Good job Bob! Like others, I used all ground beef. I used 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin, and 2 tablespoons ancho chili powder (instead of regular chili powder--ancho is milder and more dimensional). I used all kidney beans and drained them very well. Lastly, in lieu of fresh chile peppers I used only 2 canned chipotle peppers (in adobo sauce)--I love the smokey flavor they contribute. You will NOT be disappointed with this recipe. Note: serve with sour cream, grated cheddar, chopped fresh cilantro and sliced green onions, or chives.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2002
A friend made these and gave me a taste. I did not like them--a little dry and the flavor combo did "work" for me.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2002
A very tasty weeknight meal--thanks for the suggestion of Pace Chipotle salsa--would not have enjoyed the recipe had it been ordinary salsa.
