Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Great soup, and I'm not a big fan of tomato soup. I tried this recipe because my husband loves tomato soup. I used 2 28 oz. cans of diced tomatos, a small can of tomato paste, and used a sweet Vidalia onion for my onion. Didn't have whole cloves, but used a few pinches of powdered cloves. Followed the recipe as written. It came out as a rich, thick tomato bisque. Chopped fresh basil mixed in at the end and used on top as a garnish as well made it extra delicious. Husband asked me to not buy canned soup anymore, and I agree!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Man, these were awesome! I used drumsticks instead of wings because they have more meat on them. I tripled the amounts given to make 28 pieces, deep fried in big pots of oil as I don't have a deep fryer, cooked for appx. 18-20 minutes. Worked just fine. Tripling the sauce amounts didn't quite cover all the drumsticks, but almost. Came out so good the guys were sucking on the bones after eating them! A bit of work, but sooooo worth it. Thanks!

Italian Style Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
I liked this recipe, and so did my picky eater sons. I wanted a crispier coating, so I used 2 cups Panko and 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs. Other than that, followed the recipe exactly. Using thin sliced, bone in pork chops, I baked in the oven for the full 40 minutes, and they did indeed come out crispy coating outside, moist on the inside, and very tasty!

I followed this recipe exactly,and no one in my family liked this dish. My husband loves ginger, so I was disappointed.

Awesome Ham Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2006
I don't know why every review I read on this recipe raved about it. I followed the recipe exactly. I don't think it was anything special at all. I won't be making this again, and I am disappointed that I was mislead by all the 5 star reviews this received.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
My whole family really liked how this turned out, the finicky husband, and even the 7 and 4 year olds! Followed the recipe exactly as written, but did take others advice and tripled the sauce, and I may even make MORE sauce than that next time. Overall, a hit, and a keeper.

Spiced Baked Apples

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, using 4 Gala apples. Even though I baked them for additional time, they still weren't soft, and the filling didn't taste good. My family (and me too) did not care for it.

Italian Green Bean Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
Did not like this one. I followed the recipe, but I did add a little fresh oregano also. No one in my family liked the taste. Won't be making this one again.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
It was a nice, easy to prepare cake that my family liked. The only things I changed were using 1 1/2 cups Splenda instead of the white sugar, 2 cups of fresh blueberries, and no pecans (I didn't have any). It makes a small, dense cake, but nice and moist.

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
My store only had marinated pork loin, so I too skipped the added salt. Even so, between the marinaded loin and the bacon, it was very salty. What's a cook to do, eh? The seasoning dip didn't add much in the way of flavor, and the butter/oil/bacon drippings made it a tad greasy. I may try this again one day, but only with a plain pork loin, and a bit of tweaking on my part.

Apple and Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I will not trust when people give a recipe a high rating again. This was no to our taste. The chicken was bland, even with the sauce, and the sauce was just weird. I wish I had used one of my perfectly good chicken recipes instead.

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
I don't know why all the high ratings on this recipe. I did like another reviewer, and cooked mine in the slow cooker. Even though I used less sugar than called for, it was much too sweet, and was nothing special. I should have sliced into medallions, and pan roasted in a little olive oil, rosemary and lemon pepper. This in a no-go for me.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
WOW. I was looking for a special cake to make for my best friend's birthday, as she has become allergic to gluten. This cake was so rich and sinfully good that my friends though it was a chocolate truffle cake from a fancy restaurant until I showed them the recipe! I substituted Splenda for the sugar, used 12 oz. of semi sweet chips and 6 oz. of unsweetend bakers chocolate, and used orange juice instead of water, and it turned out FABULOUS! This one will now be a must for any special occasion. THANKS!!!

Taco Soup II

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
WAY too much salt, almost to the point of being inedible. Wish I would have read the other reviews that said that before I made it. Only changes I made were to add some Cumin and lime juice, corn instead of hominy, and black beans in place of the limas ( I don't like them). I tried to add some sour cream to tone down the saltiness, but it didn't help much. If there is a next time, I'll leave out the extra salt altogether.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
Love this recipe. So easy to make. I don't know if my bundt pan is small, but mine was quite full with two cans of biscuits. I used Splenda for the white sugar, and toasted slivered almonds instead of walnuts--much better! I drizzled the butter/brown sugar and some of the almonds between and on top of each of the three layers in my bundt pan. Baked for 35 minutes, making the top a little crispy, the inside nice and soft, like a cinnamon roll. Absolutely delicious!!!

Thai Cashew Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
There must be a typo in the ingredient list, as this is SO SALTY it is impossibe to eat. I followed the recipe exactly, but wish I would have listened to a previous reviewer that stated HOW SALTLY this recipe is. I had to actually rinse the chicken of all the sauce just to salvage dinner. What a waste. I would give NO STARS to this, but it won't let me post my comments with out giving it at least one. Oh well....

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
I liked this recipe. It was simple, relatively quick and tasty in a different way then the usual flavors we eat. My husband is diabetic, so I made a few healthy changes--- Smart Balance instead of the butter, and low fat milk instead of the heavy cream. I too doubled the sauce amount, added a squeeze of 1/4 of fresh lemon and a splash of white wine, along with a small red onion cut into strips cooked in the oil after removing the chicken but before adding the sauce, cooking until tender. I did thicken the sauce a little with some corn starch. Even with the healthy changes, this dish came out very tasty, and even my young sons cleaned their plates and asked for more. I will make this one again. Thanks!
