Easiest Eggplant

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Made this tonight, only change was MW instead of mayo. Was okay, but a little bland. I also put parmesan cheese in with the bread crumbs. I used Italian seasoning bread crumbs too. Some garlic pepped it up, I think that one thing I did wrong with it was slicing it too thin. I will make again, but make some changes to make it less bland.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
This is pretty good, but not real great. The only real changes I made was to putthe spices in the egg instead of the crackers. I also added basil. It seemed to take forever to cook, though. I ended up sticking them in the microwave to finish cooking them. (I used a glass cssarole) I took the lid off and browned them too, but the breading was still mushy. That's why only 4 stars instead of 5.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Absolutely fabulous! I had to use dried dill because that's all I had, but it was still great! My husband ate 3 pieces by himself. I was out of mayo too, so used that MW salad dressing. The sauce was also good on the asparagus I served with it.

Peaches and Hubby's Golden Wedding Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this the 1st time exactly as written for a bridal shower. I found out 1 very important thing, DO NOT MAKE UNTIL READY TO SERVE! I had put frozen strawberries in it as some suggested and they thawed and diluted the punch and made it tangier than it was and it was pretty tangy to begin with. I took the left over punch home and my husbnd and I played around with it and found adding a banana to it helped immensly to smooth out the taste. Mountain Dew helped too. So had some ideas for when I was making it for the starring role at a 50th wedding annicversary party. put the oj concentrate and 3 banas in the blender with a little pineapple juice and stirred that into the punch container with the rest of the pineapple juice and 2 bottles of Sprite and a large bottle of V-8 fusion tropical colada and it was smooth and perfect. I got rave reviews and asked what was in it. I give it 3 stars as written, as it's a good base to start with, 5 with My husband and my changes.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Absolutely delicious! I accidently overcooked it so it wan't as tender as it could have been, but that was my fault not the recipe's fault. I had to use vermouth and cooking sherry as out of wine. Also some chicken broth when it cooked down too far. Great with the "Orzo with bsdil and parmesan" here on this site. They were fabulous together.

Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
This is a pretty good basic recipe. I added garlic powder and basil to the flour and after browning the chicken, I cooked some minced garlic and portabella mushrooms. I also ended up tripling the sauce as it kept reducing so fast. But boy was it worth it! Absolutely fabulous! I think this will be my go to recipe with my modifications.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I threw this all together in my slowcooker and it was amazing! I couldn't get it to thicken, but it didn't need it, just mashed the potatoes a bit and was fine. I did use beef broth as was out of beef boulliion, but it was still amazing. I'll have to try this again when I have time to do the actual cooking and not use my slow cooker.

Orangecicle Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
I have made this cake twice now, once as written and once with white cake mix as others suggested. Both times it was Super Fantastic! My husband could not get enough, my grandkids scarfed it down like water, saying it tasted like ice cream. I put the manderin oranges on top and with the white cake, saved the syrup from the oranges and used it in place of water in the cake. I did add extra orange extract for my personal taste, but can't really find anything to fault in this. It is fast becoming a family favorite I'll take to church and family functions for years.Update, I learned 1 thing, put the jello over it slooowly so it will have more of a chance to soak in rather than most going around the edges to the bottom of the cake, which is still good anyway! Also, I did this from memory last night and forgot the vanilla extract, but no one could tell the difference. I just can not tell how good this is, my husand and grandkids would eat this every day and beg me to make it constantly. It tastes great with the orange and the white cake mixes. I like to switch up on them. I FOUND THAT 1/2 TABLSPOON ORANGE EXTRACT IS PERFECT INSTEAD OF A WHOLE 1.

Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
I made this tonight and hubby and I loved it. I left out the red pepper flakes as I didn't want to make it hot. I also sprikled some shredded mozzirella cheese over the top in the last 3 minutes. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the red pepper flakes. W/O them it's 5 stars. I also used a can of diced tomatoes as I didn't have any fresh tomatoes.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I haven't tried this recipe yet, I was looking for a recipe to make for a friend and was shocked to see you needed gluten free vanilla. I did an online search and found a site that says it is not necassary to buy gluten free extracts or vinegars as the distillation process kills all gluten! As it was written by a woman with Celiac Disease and she's the auther of a cookbook, gluten free of course, I would tend to take her word on this. Oh yes alcohols are safe too!

Tuna Delicious

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Very good and creamy. Hubby said it was okay, but too bland so could only give 4 stars. Will play with this some with different spices though to please him.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I made this with a pork tenderloin and it was fantastic! My husband had 2nds and 3rds. Very easy, especially since I used a slow cooker liner. It made for super easy clean up.

Easy Honey Mustard Mozzarella Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Very good, even w/o bacon. I would suggest using thin breasts or cutting thick 1's in half width wise to have more tender chicken and faster cooking time.
