Pork Roast With The World's Best Pork Loin Rub

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
Since I always read a recipe through before I try it, I knew I didn't want the sugar. I might have added 1/2 of the amount if I were grilling but for roasting, no. I wasn't wanting pork candy. Other than that change I made my roast according to the directions and was quite happy with the outcome. :o)

Orange Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
This is fabulous! The only change I had to make was using fresh ginger instead of ground. I think the amount of orange peel should be to each person's taste. For me, 1/2 tbs. was plenty but others may prefer the amount called for. Very customizable, quick, and easy. A definite re-do for me. Thank you! :o)

Japanese Restaurant Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I reduced the servings to 2 and found it a little dry so I doubled up on the rice vinegar, sugar, and chile. Using the called for amount of sesame oil was too much, the flavor overpowering everything. Next time I'll just add a tsp. of that. Otherwise, this is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you! :o)

French Onion Soup IX

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This turned out pretty good but using all beef stock made it a bit too strong in beef flavor. It's onion soup after all and you want to taste that. I prefer a mix of chicken and beef stock but I still liked this. Thanks for sharing. :o)

Pretty fun idea! This tastes just like a strawberry margarita! :o)

Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
This is a quick and simple soup with good flavor. If you're a fan of potato soup, I recommend this one since it's not overburdened with other flavors. Thanks for sharing. :o)

Chipotle Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I enjoyed this quite a bit! I don't find that many uses for chipotle in adobo sauce so I was happy to come across this one. I love the smoky heat and the sharpness of the feta. I used it as a spread for toasted pita triangles. I'll use this recipe many times in the future. Thanks! :o)

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
This was pretty good for what it is. I rarely if ever slow cook meat but I wanted something cozy that day. And that's what this meal is, cozy. The leftovers were made into hash, and beef gravy to serve over mashed potatoes. I think that's the reason I liked it as much as I did. Nice leftovers! Thank you much! :o)

Black Salt Asparagus

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
I've had a jar of black sea salt languishing in my spice rack forever so right away I have to thank you for the only recipe I've ever seen that uses it. And it works! I never use my broiler and didn't feel like turning on the oven so I sauteed my asparagus in some Kerrygold butter and a little water until tender/crisp. Sprinkled on the black sea salt just before serving and really enjoyed the unique flavor of the salt with the asparagus. One thing though, once salted, you should eat it right away. The salt starts to liquefy and turn into a very unattractive mess. I really think its best use would be on cold or room temp foods. Thanks for this one! :o)

Acapulco Margarita Grouper

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
A couple of issues here. Please don't marinate your fish for 30 mins. in that much lime juice, it starts to turn into ceviche. The beautiful flavor of the marinade is lost if you just drizzle it on the fish, not to mention it gets into everything else on your plate. I would serve it as a dipping sauce and when I tried it that way tonight, it really complimented the pico de gallo and the fish. A really flavorful recipe but I prefer the changes I made. Btw, I tried it exactly as written before changing it up a bit. Thanks Bill! :o)

Lemon Rosemary Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
I hate to be the Grinch today but I'm seriously miffed! Considering how nice it smelled cooking, I expected a lot of flavor. What I got was bland, bland, bland. No lemon, no rosemary flavor. At All. I ended up splashing it with Worcestshire and re-cooking it just so I wouldn't have to throw it out. General Mills, you've cost me some coin with these recipes and you let me down completely. :o(

Chex® Caramel-Chocolate Drizzles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
I'm probably in the minority here but I HATE the microwave method of cooking this stuff. The caramel was never very fluid, stirring it was a nightmare, and much of the cereal was broken by the time I finished. My friends thought it was good but mentioned that it hurt their teeth to eat it. Not the reaction I was going for. I think I'll stick to making caramel corn. :o(

Grilled Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
Let's get the hard part over first. The reduced sauce was too sweet and the cinnamon is too dominant. And that's AFTER I already cut it back to 1/8 of tsp. However, the pork was delicious and with a little reworking on the sauce, that would be delicious too. It almost tastes like an upscale, really interesting A1 Sauce. Just skip either the sugar or the honey and use only a sprinkle of cinnamon. I'm hanging on to this one! Thanks! :o)

Ginger Iced Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I honestly don't know if I like it or not. It's very peculiar tasting. Not bad exactly but not really good either. It's like the tea and ginger flavors cancel each other out. I appreciate the creativity though. :o)

Chocolate Glaze II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
This worked wonderfully for me! I needed a glaze for Banana Bread Cookies, (also on this site), and I didn't want to mess with melting chocolate so this was perfect. I love the flavor but wanted it a bit more intense so I added 1 more tablespoon of cocoa powder. That did the trick! Thanks so much! :o)

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
We LOVED this! I had to leave it in the oven with the heat turned off for about 20 mins. and that actually turned out to be a good thing. The top turned golden and the sides pulled away from the pan which gave it a nice, close texture. Not too dense either. Hubby wants to toast it for breakfast. I'm gonna have to cut the sugar slightly next time, (just a smidge too sweet for me), but otherwise, awesome recipe. :o)

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
I love these! So much easier than fried potato skins and somewhat healthier as well. These often take the place of baked potatoes as a side dish for us too. If you're trying to eat less carbs but can't give up the beloved tater completely, this is a nice start. Thanks! :o)

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
This is a tasty way to cook broccoli although I had to put the lid on my pan to steam it after it was browned. I don't think it would have cooked through otherwise. :o)

Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
I love the idea! I can have a "baked potato" without actually eating one! I'm not kiddin, if you can exercise some self control, two or three slices of these, savored, can take the place of the real thing. :o)

Awesome Red Wine Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
If you skip the veggies, sub all wine for water, cook til most of the liquids have soaked into the meat, scoop it onto a nice bun, you've just recreated the Aaron Sanchez sliders that they serve at the Crossroads bar @ Downtown Disney. Applause, applause to infinity and beyond! :o)
