Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Followed the recipe as written. Used Franks Red Hot. PERFECT wings! I also made the Japanese Chicken Wings from this site and they were very good too, a good contrast to the buffalo wings and my husband couldn't decide which ones he liked best :o) My son doesn't like hot wings so he either eats them before I add the sauce to them or he has lemon-pepper wings which are nothing but them tossed in lemon-pepper seasoning right after frying, skipping the hot sauce/butter "bath". They are excellent that way too, better than the ones at "our" pub.

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
I followed Top Reviewer (Lucky/Sami)'s recommendations and these were excellent. Had to use more than the 20 crackers he/she suggested though. I also used her recipe for the aioli and it was perfect. The flavor will develop as it rests in the refrigerator, so make sure to make it ahead.

Spinach and Hazelnut Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
You have to like balsamic to like this dressing. It really stands out. I added fresh strawberries (mashed) and skipped the black pepper.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Very good BUT it needed more garlic and I used fresh mushrooms. To cut on the tomatoey taste of the sauce I added a splash of worcestershire sauce. Yummy!

Garlic Red Potatoes

I bought small red potatoes and cut them in 1/8, and STILL had to cook them for an hour. I used fresh parmesan and more garlic. They were delicious!

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Perfect recipe as written. I didn't want these for gifts, I just wanted a good cranberry and white chocolate chip cookie and these were SO it!! I made them quite large using 1/4 cup for each cookie so I had to bake about 11 minutes.

Ropa Vieja in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Delicious and flavorful. A word of advice for those who are not crazy about peppers- this dish tastes A LOT like peppers. Cut down some if you prefer, you will be ok. I added 5 fresh garlic cloves minced and 1 whole can of tomato paste (and I regretted doing that, 1/2 can is definitely better in my opinion)

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Super Easy and relatively fast (I did freeze before dipping and used a spoon and a fork for the process). Sprinkled some with chopped pecans and decorated some with white chocolate strips. To do the strips: Put a few (about 20 chips)white chocolate chips in a ziploc bag and push them all the way to one corner. Microwave 30 seconds at a time until they melt, squeeshing with your fingers everytime. Snip off the corner (not too small or the bag will pop when you squeeze it) and using fast side by side movements draw lines on top of the truffles. Drawback: TOO RICH! OMG!! Even without chocolate on top!!

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I sauteed some minced garlic (about 3 cloves) on the olive oil before adding the rest of the ingredients. Otherwise, I followed the instructions completely and I liked the dish very much.

Baked Havarti Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Used plain Havarti and fresh garlic. I liked the dish overall. Chicken was moist and flavorful. Liked the chilis on top and the havarti... Mushrooms were ok. Might make it again some day.

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This recipe is basically about the rice and it is too sweet and too vinegary. I did not like the taste or texture of this rice. I rolled them inside out because to me they look prettier that way. They looked gorgeous but I did not like the rice taste!

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Filling was SO bland. White sauce was bland as well but I fixed it by adding mozarella cheese to it. It melted beautifully in the sauce and it gave it a lot of flavor and character. I will make again but I'm making the spinach and beef filling my old way.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Toooooooo sugary!! I toasted the almonds in the oven for a few minutes, that worked great. The amount of sugar needs to be cut down big time in my opinion. Otherwise, really good and refreshing salad.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I halved the recipe, added pecans and (because I absolutely hate Mountain Dew) I used Ginger Ale. I think the soda part of this recipe can be subbed with just about any drink. Was super EASY and very tasty served warm with a big ol' scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
