Peri Peri African Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
What a moist chicken this made! I used boneless skinless and had to used powdered ginger, but this turned out better than I expected. I marinated for 24 hours in the fridge. Very fragrant and great presentation!

Chicken Salad Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
I made these with leftover chicken breasts from dinner tonight instead of canned, and also sprinkled some shredded cheese inside and used spinach instead. Perfect for the lunch bag!

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
The only changes I made were I used lemon pepper instead of plain pepper and I put them on foil packets on the grill. So tasty!

Fried Chicken Chunks (Chicharrones De Pollo) Dominican

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I used the seasonings to a T and marinated for 24 hours. Then, in an attempt to make this healthier, I grilled them instead of the flour and frying them. Not exactly chicharrones anymore, but the flavor was still great.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
I really doubted that these would come together with so few ingredients but they really came out great. I recommend these are in for the full 10 minutes. These are almost the consistency of brownies, but in a cookie shape.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
I used this as a marinade for bone-in pork chops for 24 hours, only I didn't have the smoke flavoring. I literally had people licking the bones the sauce was that good! I put the leftover sauce in a pan, and brought it to a simmer. I barbecued the chops and used the sauce to baste every time I turned. I will use this recipe again, next time I'll use fresh garlic though.

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This was awesome--just like my mom used to make. I ended up making a double batch to fully cover the potatoes. I made these ahead of time and put them in a casserole pan and warmed them up before serving. I can't wait to make these again.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
I followed several user suggestions to get this perfect. I used four cloves of garlic and made sure to mix in the mozzarella cheese rather than put it on top. I added about 1/2 cup of sour cream to the mixture too because I used a full (frozen) box of spinach.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I made this even easier by using baby carrots (hey, it's what I had) and putting them in the food processor and pulsed them until I had the consistency I wanted. I put the apple through the corer/peeler thing I have, then put it through the food processor as well. I accidentally used sweetened coconut because I didn't read the directions well enough before I went to the store. This still came out great! Next time I'll add more raisins, this is so good, not too sweet at all-which I was sure it would be!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
I made this with stripper fillets instead and then put them in double-lined foil packets on the barbecue. I used a combo of lemon/lime juice and fresh Italian parsley. These came out great, I think the recipe is versatile for any fish. Oh, I made more of the butter mixture as well to cover the fillets.

Licuado de Mango

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This was a refreshing drink, and could easily be adapted for many tastes. Next time I make it, I think I'll add some more milk and some more ice as I found it pretty thick like a milkshake. I loved that this has so much vitamin A and C, a great way to get my fruit servings in too! Also, next time I might add some strawberries, raspberries or a banana to vary it a little! (This is also known as Batido de Mango in many latin countries!)

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This was good, but I felt it was a little overkill on all the spices it used--talk about pricey! I didn't add the dried parsley because I didn't have any. It smelled great baking too, and makes a LOT of potatoes, we'll be eating this all week!

Berry Lemon Mousse Parfait

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This was great--and I have to say the one time I'm sorry I listened to the reviews rather than the recipe. I double the amount of whipping cream, afraid there wouldn't be enough for 6 parfaits. Not only did I have enough, but it was way too much! You don't want a ton of whipped cream, it should be mostly fruit I think! Regardless, they were still delicious with the lemon taste! As a side note people enjoyed putting the whipped cream on their coffee for brunch!

Cheesy Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This took a little longer than the 40 minutes that it stated. I had mine in for 50 minutes, then broiled it for 2 more minutes to ensure the top was cooked as that was the only thing that didn't look done. I ended up using real sausage because I couldn't find any veggie ones at the small grocery store I went to. If I made this again, I would leave out the salt--it didn't need it especially with the sausage. Plus, the cheese adds a lot of flavor.

Grandma's Gingersnaps

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
This recipe tasted okay, but the cookies were so flat--I don't know what went wrong! I don't know if I messed up the ingredient amounts a bit or if something was old, but it wasn't quite a 5 for me. I'll try to make them again and rate them again!

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
This turned out pretty good, and was certainly easy to make. I used up a lot of things in the fridge and pantry, which was great!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
These are great--especially with some fresh garlic mixed in before you spread it on the bread.

Lola's Horchata

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
This was pretty good, but not quite the texture I was looking for. COSTA RICAN RECOMMENDATION: I had this while I was in Costa Rica and I think next time I'll do the following changes: Bring the rice and water to a boil together with a cinnamon stick and turn it off. Blend this (without the cinnamon stick) and then strain it. Add the sugar, vanilla and let it sit overnight with the cinnamon stick and some cloves. In the morning I would add the milk and call it good! Oh, I also used 1/2 cup of sugar. I'm going to try this again without boiling it, but will also try the boiling method. Also, will try this with barley too. :)

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I was really against making these, because my go-to oatmeal raisin cookie recipe is Betty Crocker and it's awesome. But, I thought I would give this one a try for something different. It turned out great! Just out of curiousity, I looked at the recipe next to the Betty Crocker, the only difference was BC doesn't have cloves! Ha ha, go figure, right? Anyway, still a great cookie!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
"This shrimp is the s#it!" was the review of everyone who ate it last night. I don't even eat shrimp, but this smelled so good while I was putting it on the barbecue! I even had people stealing it off of one another's plates! I will make this again--I wish I could give it more stars!
