Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I made this exactly as written and it was DELICIOUS!! Not everybody likes cranberries because they are tart so consider that before making it. If the cranberries are an issue I'm sure blueberries would ROCK!! I will definitely try this cake with other berries in the near future. This cake is perfect!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
The taste of the condensed golden mushroom soup made it taste fake and artificial. Good if the only thing you want is to mitigate your hunger.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
They lacked flavor but were moist. Cooking time needs to be considerably longer.

Vodka Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
It was missing something... not sure what. It was enjoyable but not "all that".

Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
This was edible but not great. I prepared the dish exactly as written. The flavor was too weird and artificial. The flavor basically gave away that I was feeling lazy that day and wanted to whip something up real quick to get it over with. Not good.

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
We loved this tuna. I had two frozen, individually wrapped ahi tuna steaks that I defrosted in the fridge overnight (what I'm trying to say is that the quality of my ahi tuna was not the best). Regardless, the flavor was amazing. I did not expect these results with such few and basic ingredients. I cooked my filets through because of the quality but I was still very happy with them. I used coarse ground black peppercorns instead of whole and it was great! Will definitely make again and serve to company.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Only rice I had was medium grain but it worked very well. I liked this rice better than the rice I get at mexican restaurants. It was definitely more flavorful without taking away from the rest of the dish.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
I only had a 1.41 pounder so I decided to cut everything in half, except the chiles which I used 1 small can, and the hot sauce which I used only 2 ounces. I also added 1/4 teaspoon cumin as recommended by many. I cooked it on high for 5 hours, shredding it after 4 hours and it was super tender and very flavorful. It was spicy... in the verge of being too spicy for me (but I'm a wimp, it was fine).

Smilejenna's Lumpia Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Very good. Adjust garlic and red pepper flakes to taste. I added almost twice as much red pepper flakes and only made half the recipe. A keeper.

Simple Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
It definitely needed color and thickness. The suggested 1/2 brown sugar 1/2 white sugar worked better for color and boiling the syrup for a few minutes helped it get thicker. Also good with vanilla extract in place of the maple syrup for a nice twist.

Krumkake II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Delicious! I saw a Krumkake iron on Amazon.com for less than $40. It is electric, very easy to use, and makes pretty designs on the krumkakes.

Big Batch Kris Kringle Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Soooo delicious! Can't wait to try them with dried apricots. I halved the recipe but otherwise didn't change a thing! A keeper for sure!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
MMM, WoW!! Very delicious! I reduced the amount of sugar on both the dough and the filling based on most reviewers and completely agree. I might reduce it even more next time. Of course, the amount of sugar will depend on the sweetness of your berries too so go ahead and taste your berries first and determine for yourself. This cobbler is truly delicious!

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
A can of broth has almost 2 cups but not quite so I added water to make up for it rather than opening another can of broth for just a little liquid. I recommend a LARGE onion. Seems like a lot but it is not. I served this with blackened tilapia and avocado slices. A nice twist rather than plain ol' white rice.

Red Potato Bites

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
Really good and easy. I used gourmet klondike red potatoes. They are really tiny so you can imagine how cute these looked. Before you fill the red potatoes taste the filling to make sure it has enough salt and it has the consistency you like. I added a bit of butter and used a hand held mixer to whip the potatoes. Add a tiny dollop of sour cream on top and some chopped up chives and MMM!

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Easy and delicious! I had left over fudge for probably 10-15 more "puddles". I omitted the pecans because I was also making pecan tassies and wanted something completely different from that. So... I used autumn colored sprinkles. I have no patience for double boilers so I used the microwave 20 seconds at a time. Stir, 20 more seconds, stir... until melted. Doesn't take long at all. The fudge sets quite rapidly so I had to reheat (about 15 seconds in microwave) every now and then. I used a plastic bottle (Wilton brand sells 2 for $2 at Walmart) to squeeze the fudge in the cups. I guess you could also use a ziploc bag and just cut the tip (one of the corners) off and use that as a piping baggie. Quite delicious!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
I halved the recipe and made 3 small round cheesecakes with it. I liked it very much overall but I think it is too sweet. I love honey but adding it made the dessert WAY to sweet. Next time I will reduce the amount of sugar used as topping and maybe I will also reduce the amount used on the filling.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Yum!! I doubled the soup and sour cream as suggested by many and used chipotle taco seasoning instead of chili powder to season the chicken which I shredded after boiling for about 1 1/2 hrs. Will make again. Thanks!

Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Avocado (aguacate) does NOT go in pico de gallo. Of course, people can do whatever they want with a recipe. Add chocolate if you want, it won't be authentic but if you are into it... go ahead. Lime, however, DOES go. Garlic ... I rather press a garlic clove into the pico de gallo than using garlic powder. Green onion ... again, not authentic but I don't see why I'd hurt anything. This recipe is good but it is missing the lime and I always skip the salt for health reasons. It really doesn't need it anyways.
