Rum Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
This cake is absolutely amazing. We recently went to Jamaica and bought a rum cake and it was fabulous. Since then I'd been looking for a recipe and found this recipe. Everyone who had the one from Jamaica agrees that it tasted like it. To make it more healthy, I did use splenda, sugar free pudding and eggbeaters - I tried it with all different types of rum too (Brugal, Bacardi, etc.) and they have all been excellent. The last one I did I experimented by injecting some of the glaze into the cake - you have to be very careful because if you inject too much it will get a sour like taste to it if it is too much. Everyone enjoy and thanks for the recipe!

Mama D's Italian Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
I had never tried to make bread and thought I would try with this recipe. It was easy to follow and the bread was tasty - though the shape of the bread was off a bit - too fat in the middle - they looked like footballs. Other than that wonderful tasting bread - it tasted just like the ones in the bakery.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
Absolutely wonderful. I'm not a fan of sweet potatoes but my husband is. I was looking for a recipe that would tickle my fancy. Well, this one did it! It was great - I don't think I will make sweet potatoes any other way. The topping is what does it for me - thanks for sharing :)

Deep-Fried Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
We tried this for a family get together. I must say it smelled wonderful - I think our whole block knew we were cooking :) It was the first time anyone in our family had fried turkey - everyone thought it was delicious - I did do one little modification. I did inject the turkey with lemon juice the night before. I would do this again but maybe add a bit more salt.

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
In reading all the reviews, I took the advice of some of the others and decreased the amount of salt - I think that is why I didn't give it 5 stars since it had the nice kick, full of flavor but it was missing something - to me I think it was the salt. Will use again but follow the recipe to the T.

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
I loved these pork chops - they are melt in your mouth good. Juicy and flavorful. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is that my husband didn't like the lemon flavor with the worestershire sauce. I did it a second time with just salt and pepper instead of lemon pepper and he loved it. I also do not use the olive oil and butter - just the butter as I prefer that taste. Thanks Matt for sharing!

Tofu 'Fish' Fillet Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
I tried this as I had bought Tofu to make a pasta salad and had some left over. Maybe it is because I didn't make the sauce but it was bland and didn't get crunchy - it just seemed soggy to me.

Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
What an awesome recipe! My husband and I had half of the loaf when it came out of the oven - we could not wait for it to cool. He just kept commenting how great the "cake" was and that I will now have to do it more often - first time I even attempt to make banana nut bread. Wonderful smell while it is baking, simple and delicious. Only thing is I used the bisquick mix instead of the flour, salt and baking powder. Great recipe - a keeper!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Wow, wonderful aroma while cooking and flavorful. The sauce I added garlic to mine and the combo was excellent. Thanks for the recipe. Though I did use the food processor to "mash" the garbanzo beans - I was very careful not to overdo it by pulsing. I got a nice chunky like texture, I also added more than a dash of cayenne pepper, didn't use the olive oil and only used about 2/3 of the bread crumbs as it was already manageable at that point. In addition, I shallow fried them as another person suggested. The best - thank you for making my Lenten season better :)

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Yummy! I did add chopped up cucumber and chopped up my garlic. I did not have fresh dill so I used dried and think it came out just as good - will have to try with fresh dill though. Thanks now I can have it whenever I want :)

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
Great tasting bread and easy to make even without a bread machine thanks to another reviewer (SCHMOO2) who broke it down for me. Those who don't have bread machines just follow those instructions and you will be all set to enjoy this bread. Absolutely worth the time to make as it was great and it was only my second time trying to bake bread with yeast. My husband absolutely LOVED it. Thanks Melinda for sharing and thanks to SCHMOO2 for breaking it down for those of us who don't have bread machines!

Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I really liked this recipe it had a wonderful taste - didn't give it the 5 stars because the oregano is way too much. I should have read the reviews before trying it and it would have been much better. Still a great recipe though!

Mini Eggplant Pizzettes

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Pretty good - I wish there was a way to make it crunchier to be more like pizza. I had to eat mine with a fork because it was just too soft and I added peppers, sausage and used monterey jack cheese to be a bit different.

Microwave Mississippi Mud Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This was very good, the only thing was that I used whole wheat flour instead and it was great, very yummy! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I did as another reviewer stated and only did half of the frosting required which I think was more than enough but it came out very runny. Not sure what I did wrong it was still nice and yummy and my hubby agreed! I will keep doing it again and it was great to have without turning on the oven. Thanks for sharing!
