Mojito

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
This is a refreshing drink in the summer. I thought it was a little bitter though, so next time I'll ease off the lime.

Welsh Rabbit

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
The trick to this recipe is using a combination of beer and milk (yes, both work well together!). We have made this since I was a little kid with this recipe: 16 slices bread, 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup porter or ale, 1/4 cup whole milk, 1 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 6 oz extra-sharp Cheddar, coarsely grated (about 1 1/2 cups). We as kids tore up the toast because it was fun, the adults cut it up with a fork and knife. It's also called Buck Rabbit (or rarebit) if you put a fried egg on the toast. This is the closest I could find to the old recipe I used from the old Betty Crocker recipe. The Welsh Rarebit recipes are off too, because you shouldn't use processed cheese or tomato soup!

Island Jump-Up Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
I had to make a few revisions because I didn't have the fresh ginger or chilies on hand (I used spices) but this recipe was great. I left it to marinate two nights because I had a scheduling conflict, but it smelled great and was pretty easy to make!

Chimichurri Sauce for Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
This sauce was excellent! I am a vegetarian and ate it as a salad dressing at a barbecue and poured over grilled tofu. I plan to make this soon!

Chinese Pork Ribs

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I will make this again, it smelled great and was so easy to make! I used garlic powder instead of garlic because I was running late for work, and doubled the sauce to make sure it covered all the meat. I also used low-sodium soy sauce.

Garlic-Lime Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
These were so easy to prepare and smelled delicious. I did have to cook them for about 15 minutes more because they were still pink inside after 14 minutes. Very good though!

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
These were really pretty easy to make. The kids ate the rice out of them, but the adults gobbled them up. I would also add yellow onions and garlic to the saute mixture for more aroma and flavor. I doubled the recipe.

Mushroom and Swiss Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
This was a crowd-pleaser at a family dinner - even the kids liked it. I prepared it ahead and put it in the fridge until dinner time. Next time I would double the garlic, oil, vinegar and seasoning though. Lemon-pepper seasoning or lemon zest might taste well with this as well!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
Great cake and it's especially good served cold! I was so scared the milk wouldn't absorb into the cake - it looks like so much once you put it into the same container! Even once I poured it bit by bit, you need to wait for it to soak in. At first I thought I flooded it! It ALL soaks in though, so have no fears! Kids seemed to love it!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
This was good but I prefer my cookbook recipe on this one! I, sadly, made the mistake of not peeling my apples not knowing the importance of doing so. I thought it would add more fiber, you know? Well, it was weird. The texture of the apples did not go well with the less-friendly texture of the peels. Lesson learned, I bought an apple peeler/corer/slicer too.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
This is a good recipe--I used sharp cheddar to give it some more flavor. I also used fresh cracked black pepper, and it was pretty good. I would also suggest anyone making this boil their potatoes before slicing them to cut down on the baking time--it takes way too long otherwise!

Pork Chops in Beer

This was extremely easy to prepare/cook and I was requested to make this again!

Apple-Topped Chops

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
I was told this was a good dish, but I don't think it was spectacular. I reduced the first cooking time to 45 minutes and kept the second at 30, but it still seemed excessive. It was easy to put together but way too long to wait for a simple pork chop dinner!

Tuna Buns

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This was good, but didn't go over as well as "Simple Tuna Melts." It also seemed to make a lot more than the recipe indicated, and I filled those buns! If I make this again, I'll swap out the processed cheese (too globby, yuck!) for a slice of cheddar or pepper jack.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
This is a great recipe that I've made several times now. I think the cilantro is an essential part of this recipe. I usually top with chopped avocados and shredded cheese if I have it on hand. It's also great with cornbread muffins to soak up every drop!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I agree this would probably work very well on any fish. Since I'm a vegetarian and don't eat fish or meat, my boyfriend said this tasted very good for a farmed fish that usually tasted like mud!

Cheesy Polenta Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
I make my own polenta (it's easier and a LOT cheaper!) and my own basil marinara sauce. It is delicious.

Kielbasa with Honey Mustard

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
I made the recipe as shown except I cooked the kielbasa with onions. It went over very well, but not spectacular.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
This was good but not awesome. I think it would have been much better if I had added the half and half to the butter, and slowly added the cheese mixture. I also added about 1/2 a cup of diced onions and fresh garlic to the butter. If I made it again I would skip the processed cheese too (it was globby), but it might have been tolerable if it had been melted in as suggested.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
I don't think I would make this again unless I modified it. I doubled the cayenne pepper and I felt it did need more salt. It was hard to believe something with so many nice spices lacked in flavor. I would use a vegetable or chicken stock instead of water, add salt, and double the lentils. It was like spicy vegetables floating in water (even after I blended some of it).
