Spinach and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I offered to make a pasta salad for a soccer party I was going to attend. The next day I found myself out of time and ingredients. This recipe was perfect, because all of these ingredients were in my freezer or pantry. I didn't measure a thing, and used whole chopped tomatoes as opposed to cherry. I also used less frozen spinach and WAY less dressing. My team ate it all up and raved- even the spinach haters loved it! The mild, unoffensive flavor was perfect for teenagers. Thanks!

Caribbean Jerk Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
While not "jerk", this pork was lovely! I marinaded it for almost 24 hours. This left it extremely the moist (one of the most flavorful chops I've had). The cinnamon was the most prevalent flavor, which left it with warm undertones. If you like it spicy, add more cayenne. We served this with the Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad from this site, and the combo was perfect. THANK YOU so much for this dinner.

Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
OOOOH, YUMMY! This was delicious! We used twice the amount of potatoes, and used half of the oil called for. The amount of dressing was perfectly preportioned to the salad. The combination of sweet, tangy, and nutty was fabulous. We'll make this again (and it's pretty too!)

Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
These were NOT very good. Ours came out flavorless and dry. We will not make these again.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
YUM YUM! These chimichangas, my family's first, made our Cinco De Miyo a great time! We used Italian spiced ground turkey because it was all that was available (and my mom can't eat beef), and it turned out wonderful. All the leftovers were eaten, and they made a beautiful presentation. Thank you!

Pecan Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
This dish was good. I ran out of dijon mustard, so I used a combination of Coney Island style mustard and premade honey mustard. Overall, not bad, although it was extremely unattractive. I also gave it four stars because it satisfied my mother, who is extremely picky.

Banana Boats

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
Tasty. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, it takes much longer than eight minutes to melt. Ours took about 22, and for the final 7 minutes we raised the oven temperature about 50 degrees. This item won't be a regular around our house, but it was unusual and enjoyable. Thanks!

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
YUMMY! This dish was warming and filling. The beans were sweet, and when served with extra salsa it was the perfect family meal. Just as a warning: this dish isn't pretty by any stretch of the imagination. You might want to refrain from serving it to guests or to those you wish to impress.

Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
These cupcakes were a bit dissapointing. Instead of being moist, mine came out fairly dry, and the chocolate flavor didn't pop. In the end, they were bland. I served them with a choclate frosting, but a citrus frosting might have complimented them more. Still, they were healthy, so I can't complain.

Savory Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
I made these for a christmas get-together. While the mushrooms had great flavor and were cooked perfectly, the crab was a bit too masked, and didn't shine like I had hoped it would. All around, though, a nice dish.

Mocha Coffee

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
I am a mocha fanatic, but there are no Starbucks where I live. This a great, and healthier, alternative. I used a creme brulee flavored coffee, and heated the milk before adding it. I also used 1 tsp of sugar and two packets of splenda,and added a dash of cinnamon. Following other reviewers' advice, I mixed the dry ingredients and milk into a paste before adding the coffee in order to avoid lumps. A definate keeper!

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I made these cookies for my soccer team to celebrate our last game. I didn't have ANYTHING in the house, but even my pantry could withstand these cookies! They were quick and easy. My team loved them, and all 65 cookies were gone within 2 minutes. They are dense and fudgy, rather like a brownie bite, and get better with age. Thanks for this great recipe!

Best Apple Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
My family and I had just gone apple picking, and I wanted a school lunch that would incorporate the apple in an unusual way. The only beans I had on hand were cannellini beans, and I used celery instead of green bell pepper. The dressing was great, and the salad itself was unique and refreshing. Thank you!

Allana's Excellent Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
I made this using leftover smoked shoulder, figuring that the texture/taste of it would compliment the potatoes. I was a bit dissapointed, though, because the first step (cooking the ham with the onions) eliminated the texture/flavor of the smoked shoulder. Also, I made this dish ahead of time, let it cool in the refrigerator, and the heated it for dinner. The time it spent in the fridge thickened it, for initially it was too thin. Still, it was warming and filling, especially served with cornbread.
