Sliced Tomatoes with Fresh Herb Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I made one big change that made this delicious, even though I had to use some bottled spices because I didn't have fresh on hand. I added two tablespoons of red wine vinegar, oh my god good. This even smelled awesome while I made it, and because of timing it didn't get to sit for long either. The red wine vinegar was even better than balsamic, which I didn't think was possible. If I make this recipe again with fresh ingredients and enough time to marinate, this recipe is 10 stars! I will make this again for sure!

Simple Tuna Melts

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
"Best tuna fish sandwich ever" was the review I got when I made these sandwiches! I messed up the recipe a little because I forgot to print it out, but it still turned out great! I accidentally used TWO cans of tuna, about 1/4 cup of minced onion and a whole (small) can of diced jalepenos. I added a squirt of whole grain mustard and a squirt of mayo (to keep it together better). I also used whole wheat bread instead of the English muffins. This is a keeper!

Mac and Cheese Henwood Style

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This recipe asks for four ounces of macaroni. Four ounces is about a cup. The amount of sauce this makes is WAY too much for one cup of pasta! Luckily I made 8 ounces, thinking this was going to be a problem. It was creamy, but I couldn't taste the blue cheese at all! It needed garlic too, I thought. If the measurements were right, then this would be a nice, creamy pasta but save your blue cheese for something you can taste it in! My favorite recipe is still Mom's Macaroni and Cheese (submitted by Maria Costello).

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.

Black Beans a la Olla

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was a great dish, but I wish I had let it simmer longer. If I made it again, I might even let it sit in the crock pot for a few hours on low. It was great over rice, spicy but the perfect amount. I also used it as a filling in burritoes with cheese.

Dijon Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I made these with beer instead of apple juice. How many people have apple juice on hand if they don't have kids? It turned out good regardless.

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.

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I liked this even more than the "Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style" recipe. Next time I'll add a few cloves of garlic!

Alicia's Aloo Gobi

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I used about half of the cayenne that the recipe called for and it was the perfect heat for me. I served it over quinoa. Even though I diced my potatoes small, it took almost an hour for them to cook through.

Sour Cream Banana Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
I doubled everything, which is essential if you want it to fill the bundt pan better. Next time I'll use brown sugar instead of white in the center, but otherwise this came out very nice!

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Be sure to let the chocolate mixture cool or temper the eggs, or you will get cooked eggs in your mixture. I baked these for 30 minutes and they came out perfect.

Creamy Spiced Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Very good flavor, but I found it had too much dressing for my taste. Next time I'll just add more cabbage.

Italian-Style Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
This is an excellent salad to travel with. I made it the night before and it was awesome--minus the canned tomatoes. I would either do them fresh or forget them. This is a great base for a recipe if you want to add/take out veggies or meats.

Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I'm sorry it took me so long to make this. I had all the ingredients in my pantry, super easy and a great alternative to rice as a side dish. I'll make this again for sure!

Real Welsh Rarebit

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
If you don't have beer, don't make this recipe. It's not the same without it! This was a great recipe. The better the cheese you use, the better it tastes. Use a nice aged sharp cheddar, it makes all the difference.

Pork Chops with Tangy Honey Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I also added some red pepper flakes to the sauce to give it some heat. Then I added a few extra cloves of garlic. It went over very well, but I think it would have been better if allowed to marinate overnight.

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!

Coconut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I doubled the recipe and this made 18 muffins that rose A LOT (take a look at the amount of baking soda!). This made a really thick batter, so thick I checked my measurements again thinking for sure I had left out something! The muffins turned out really dense and cake like, not what I was looking for at all. It was almost like I made a biscuit recipe and put coconut extract in it, and not enough of it at that. The topping looked great, until I added the warm butter to the mix, then it was a blob of sugar. Leave the butter out, and sprinkle it on top instead of deal with a wet sugary mess! I'll keep looking for a coconut muffin recipe.

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!)

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
I made this in a bundt pan, and the baking time should've been closer to 55 minutes. Otherwise, it smelled wonderful and was a tasty, moist cake. I used four apples. I also made the caramel glaze suggested by naples.
