Uglies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
I made this recipe exactly as written except I used minced onion and onion powder in place of the chopped onion. I used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce and added a bit of extra garlic powder and onion powder as well as salt and pepper and Louisiana hot sauce to tone down the sweetness a bit. I ran out of time making them and had to leave to take my daughter to her band concert so I ate one real quick straight out of the oven before leaving and it was very tasty but unfortunately when we can back home and reheated them they weren't very good. I think they are best eaten straight out of the oven and not good reheated at all. My daughter didn't care for them because of the meat being sweet so next time I think I will try them without the barbecue sauce.

Buckeye Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Delicious! I used Imperial Margarine instead of butter because that is what I had on hand. I used 3 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar and I just realized while writing this that I somehow missed the 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract but don't feel that it needed it because they were delicious without it. I softened the margarine a bit in the microwave before mixing it with the sugar and peanut butter and it all mixed together well. It was firm so I found it easier to mix it all together with my hands, kneeding it like dough. Immediately after mixing it, I rolled it into 1 inch balls and placed them on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper then put them in the fridge for 1 hour. I used Nestle milk chocolate morsels instead of semisweet and I used my double boiler to melt the chocolate chips and shortening and stuck a toothpick in the balls and dipped them in the chocolate. It was a bit of a pain to get rid of the holes the toothpicks made but all in all this was a very easy recipe and the end results were excellent! I didn't have any problems with my balls crumbling or falling apart. My daughter said they taste like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups only way better!! Thank you for this wonderful recipe! :)

Giant Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I made this recipe exactly as written and I didn't care for this recipe. When the cookies cooled they were hard. My 13 year old daughter said they tasted like sugar cookies with chocolate chips and I am going to have to agree with her. They didn't taste like any chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. I'm sorry but I won't be making this recipe again.

Baked Soy Lemon Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
This recipe was just ok to me. Nothing terribly exciting or exceptionally good about it. I doubled the recipe because I had 8 pork chops, cut the soy sauce in 1/2 as other reviewers suggested, added water to make up for that, everything else I did exactly as the recipe was written. I marinated them for several hours and the chops had a very nice flavor. They weren't too salty and had a taste of lemon to them. The only down side to them was that they were a bit dry and tough when done cooking. That is probably because I used very thin, boneless pork chops and I cooked them for 25 minutes in the marinade and I think they should have only been cooked for 15 - 20 minutes instead. I will try this recipe again with less cook time or use thicker bone in pork chops. Overall the recipe was ok and I liked the ease of it so I will probably make it again, it just didn't blow me away.

Sheryl's Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
I made this recipe using very small potatoes because that was all that I had. I sliced the potatoes thinner than in the first picture, and sprinkled them with salt, pepper, a no salt seasoning blend, a little seasoning salt, onion powder and garlic powder and then drizzled them with butter. I baked them 10 minutes less than the recipe called for because they were so small. After baking them for 40 minutes, I took t hem from the oven and sprinkled them with parmesan cheese only because I was out of cheddar cheese and baked them again for another 10 minutes. They were very good but I only wish that the seasonings, butter and cheese had gotten more into the cracks because the inside of the potato was lacking flavor. I will make this recipe again and next time try to fan the potatoes out more maybe by cutting them a little deeper so that the butter, cheese and spices can get inside of the potato.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I have made this recipe several times and it seems to come out differently each time. The first time I made it, it was absolutely delicious! The second and third times it was just ok. I followed the recipe all 3 times exactly as written so I am not sure why it came out differently. It is very good but the olive oil flavor seems to overwhelm it a bit so I think next time I make it, I will decrease the amount of olive oil. I forgot to note that I didn't have any fresh rosemary so I did leave that ingredient out as I don't care for the flavor of rosemary. Overall it is still a very good recipe and I will make it again.

Teriyaki Onion Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I made this recipe using Lawry's Teriyaki Marinade and it was delicious!! I didn't add cheddar cheese just because we preferred it without and it was so good. This recipe is a keeper!

Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I made this recipe using canned carrots and bottled ranch dressing and it was very delicious! I loved it! The flavor of the ranch dressing mixed with the brown sugar was very good. I will make this recipe on a regular basis.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
I made this recipe almost exactly as written with the exception of cutting the cayenne pepper in 1/2 and I didn't add the white pepper or dried basil because I didn't have any. I also added a little bit of garlic powder and chili powder. I brushed the butter on my fillets on one side and sprinkled the seasoning and melted a little butter in a skillet on medium high heat and placed the fillets in the skillet to cook seasoning side down for 4 minutes. While they were cooking, I brushed them with the butter and sprinkled them with the seasoning and flipped them after the 4 minutes. This fish was very delicious! My daughter doesn't like fish at all and she ate a whole fillet and said she wants me to make it again! I served it with rice pilaf and sweet potatoes with brown sugar and butter. It was a very delicious combination of spicy, sweet and savory. I will start using this as my go-to recipe for salmon from now on.

Grandpa's Classic Coney Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
This was not great to me. I was very hopeful based on the reviews but my kids didn't care for it and neither did I. I will not be making this recipe again. I am not sure if it was the celery seed or the mustard but the flavors didn't mesh well for me. I agree with other reviewers in that it tasted very similar to sloppy joes but I just didn't care for this recipe. I made the recipe exactly as written. Thanks anyway, different strokes for different folks! :)

Ashley's Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I made the Tonkatsu sauce from this recipe and another Chicken Katsu recipe from this site. The sauce had an unusual taste that kind of grew on me. I am not sure that I would make it again. Surprisingly though my 18 year old son liked the sauce. If I do make it again I may use the suggestion of other reviewers and add some brown sugar and maybe a little less Worcestershire sauce. I could taste the Worcestershire sauce a bit too much.

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I made this recipe using boneless pork chops because that is what I had on hand. I followed the recipe exactly as written and was very pleased with the results. It was my first time cooking with panko bread crumbs and I really liked the crispiness they added. My kids and I enjoyed it very much. I also made Tonkatsu Sauce using the recipe "Ashley's Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce" from this site which was also very good.

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I loved this recipe and so did my kids! I made it exactly as written except I seasoned my meat with onion powder, garlic powder and pepper and I mixed the cream of mushroom soup and beef broth up in a bowl before pouring it over the roast. This was the best roast I have ever made! It was very moist, tender and flavorful! Thanks for a great recipe.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I'm sorry, but I didn't care for this recipe. I made it exactly as written and I agree with some of the other reviews that it made the tenderloin dry and it was lacking in flavor. I won't be making this recipe again.

Chicken and Dumplings IV

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
I cut this recipe in 1/2 so that it would feed 3 instead of 6. I pretty much followed this recipe exactly as written with the exception of using 2 large bone-in chicken breasts and adding extra water to cover the chicken. While cooking the chicken breasts, I seasoned them with poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. I really loved this recipe and next time the only change I will make is to add a bit more extra water and to make my dumplings a bit smaller before dropping them in as I didn't realize that they would grow so much while cooking. :) Overall this is a very good and easy to make recipe. I have never made chicken and dumplings before and was pleased with the results. Unfortunately my 12 year old daughter didn't care for it that much so I probably won't be making it often.

Chicken Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This was just ok to me. I made the recipe using 3 large bone-in chicken breasts, regular potatoes cut up into chunks, one cup of Seven Seas bottled Italian Dressing and instead of using Italian Seasoning I used garlic powder, onion powder and a little garlic salt. I followed the reviews and cooked my cut up potatoes for a few minutes in the microwave before adding them to the pan with the chicken. I followed the recipe and drizzled the chicken and potatoes with the dressing then sprinkled it with the seasonings and grated parmesan cheese. I baked it in the oven for an hour at 400 degrees uncovered. My problem with it was that it was lacking in flavor and the potatoes still weren't cooked enough despite cooking them in the microwave prior. Next time I will cook them a bit longer in the microwave and I will marinate the chicken and potatoes in the dressing for a while prior to cooking it so that it will be more flavorful. I will also use more than the 1 cup of dressing that I used even though the recipe only calls for 1/2 cup. I can't imagine a 1/2 cup being enough when 1 cup wasn't. All in all it wasn't a terrible recipe but it also wasn't what I expecting due to it being bland and the potatoes not being cooked enough.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
OMG!! I used this recipe for my Thanksgiving turkey and it was the absolute best turkey I have EVER cooked!!! I made the recipe exactly as written except I decreased the seasoning salt to 1 tablespoon instead of 2. I used a 12 pound turkey and I not only put lots of butter between the skin and the breast meat but I also slathered butter all over the outside of the turkey. My family absolutely loved it and they are not usually big turkey fans. It was the most flavorful, moist turkey I have ever eaten. I was so proud!! Thank you Robin C. for such a wonderful recipe!!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I have been making this recipe for at least 5 years now and it is always a hit in my house!! My bf and son fight over these things and I am lucky if I am able to get one!! Thank you so much Ponygirl for a fabulous recipe!! In my house it isn't Thanksgiving or Christmas without ultimate twice baked potatoes. :) I have made them so many times over the years I could probably make them in my sleep. Sometimes I omit the sour cream just because I prefer them without it but they are good either way and I don't use green onions because my son doesn't like them. Otherwise I follow the recipe to a "T". I make sure to scrub the potato skins real good before baking them because my kids like to eat the whole thing skin and all.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
I followed this recipe exactly as written with the exception of decreasing the seasoning salt to 1 tbsp. It was definitely the tastiest, juiciest and moistest turkey I have ever made! My kids who don't normally like turkey loved it and even my picky bf said it was great! Thank you for a wonderful recipe Robin C.!
