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.

Brisket with BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2002
Believe it or not, I thought this tasted better WITHOUT the last step of adding the BBQ sauce/cooking for the extra hour--here's why; After being cooked at 275 degrees for 1 hr per lb., the meat sliced beautifully and tasted moist and flavorful. After adding the BBQ sauce and cooking for another hour, the meat was more like pulled pork, which tasted ordinary--even my picky 5 year old daughter preferred it w/o the sauce!. Note: I rubbed in 2 1/2 Tbsp of Wright's liquid smoke into the meat; my dry rub was 2 1/2 teasp Kosher salt, 1/2 teasp freshly ground pepper, 2 teasp onion POWDER, and 1 1/2 teasp garlic POWDER--combined in a small bowl then rubbed into the meat. I will use this recipe again for sandwiches, or any other use requiring cooked meat--really tasty!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!)

Almond Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2001
This was okay. I Did not find the time required for forming marzipan leaves was justified on a simple pound cake. I will probably not make this again.

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.

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.

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.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2001
This punch was very popular at my daughter's 3 year old birthday. It is like a slush so a good idea for summer parties. I added the juice of two limes, which perked it up nicely. My husband had to do the mixing, which he said was very time-consuming (despite that I had frozen the mixture in small bowls). He said he had to 'nuke' it to soften it. It would be fun to experiment with different jello and juice flavors ie; lime or raspberry.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
