Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chunks

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
These were pretty good, but I think the honey gave it a strange aftertaste. We still enjoyed them, though.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
Sorry, this was not something I would make again. It was too creamy, I felt like I was eating straight cream cheese. Although I added veggies and cheese, it was still bland. I wish this could have worked out for our family.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
These were sooooo good! I made half the dough the regular way, and added chocolate chips to the other half. These taste like sugar cookies with coconut added--delicious!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
This was not bad. A bit bland, but my family seemed to enjoy it. I used red mashed potatoes as the topping, because I find them to be more flavorful than the normal russets.

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
Really delicious! I'm giving it 4 stars because I ended up using 3 lbs of potatoes and that was perfect. I think 2 pounds, as the recipe states, would have come out too wet.

Amy's Barbecue Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
This was a really awesome recipe. I served the salad in a sourdough bread bowl--salad and bread in one! We don't like tomatoes, so I omitted those, and used crushed tortilla chips instead of french fried onions. I had some leftover rotisserie chicken, which made this meal even easier. Thanks for a great summer recipe!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
I roasted this in the oven, and it was very good and the chicken was moist and juicy. However, I don't think the beer added much, since it turned out very similar to my regular roasted chicken recipe that doesn't use beer. I only had a 24-oz. can of beer, but per the recommendations of some folks on the recipe exchange, just added the required beer amount to an empty soda can. Although the meat itself was not as flavorful as I would have guessed, this was a well liked chicken, and I will probably make this again.

Pasta e Olio

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
This made for a nice, light, summer pasta dinner. The flavor is really subtle, even though I halved the spaghetti (hubby's half had red sauce since he prefers that), but kept the sauce amount the same. So, I would probably double the sauce if using a whole box of spaghetti. I also added a pound of shrimp I had sauteed in garlic, olive oil, crushed red pepper, basil, and parsley. Good meal.

Brazilian White Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
This was a good basic recipe. I liked the texture of the rice a lot. I would like to add cilantro or parsley in the rice next time for a little more flavor.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
These were quite good. They remind me of what my gramma makes for Thanksgiving. But, next time I might cut down on the butter/brown sugar. It made a little too much caramel sauce, and I had to strain the carrots before eating them to avoid a major sugar rush. I will be making these again, though.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Wow! We made this for a 4th of July BBQ, and I have never seen a dessert go so quickly! People were pulling them off the tray as my husband went outside to set them out. I used graham cracker crust instead of the Nilla Wafers, and managed to get 24 Mini Muffin size and 5 Large Muffin size out of the batch. Will probably be required to bring these to the next family get-together!

Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I adjusted this recipe a bit to our taste, and it turned out well. I added an extra potato, and pureed about 2/3 of the potatoes to make for a thicker base, and left 1/3 chunky to give the soup some depth. I also added green onions and some cheese. I used a bit too much broth, but that was fine since I just added more milk (ran out of half-and-half). Overall, we would make this again, thanks!.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
These were pretty good...I turned them into sandwich rolls. I was hoping for something a little crispier on the outside, but chewy on the inside. These turned out quite soft all the way through for me. Also, since I did sandwich rolls, they cooked at 400 for only about 10-12 minutes and then were done.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
The taste of these quesadillas was excellent, much better than our normal quesadillas. I used frozen Southwestern Corn and added chicken for a heartier meal. My only complaint was that we had to knife and fork it, because it was so messy. Of course I'll be making this again, though. Next time I might use the filling for a Mexican Lasagna, which would be good too.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
This was a good basic recipe that you can really get creative with. I soaked my sourdough bread slices (flipping them once) for about 6 hours. It wasn't super-flavorful, but I will just have to keep experimenting with different spices. But, I will be keeping this recipe, thanks.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Although I used traditional balsamic, I think the 1:1 ratio of balsamic and olive oil was a little off. Something just wasn't right. It was very easy, but not our favorite, sorry.

Cajun Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This was pretty good. Next time I will make sure to pound the chicken very thin or use breast tenders, and will let the rub sit for longer. I let it sit for 3-4 hours tonight, but I would probably let it sit overnight next time. I spread the rolls with Secret Burger Sauce from this site, and served with Onion Soup Potatoes. Good meal, overall, and I will make this again.

Secret Burger Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
Delicious as a spread or a dipping sauce! We served it on Chicken Sandwiches and also as a dip for our potatoes. This tastes just like In'N'Out!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
This was really good! I served it as a main dish with garlic bread...next time I might even add chicken. I used about 1 tsp. anchovy paste (and probably could have used a little more, but I was kind of intimidated by the stuff) and used store-bought croutons. Excellent recipe.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
This dip was a hit at our BBQ! I stirred the mozzerella cheese into the mixture instead of putting it on top, and baked it in a sourdough bread bowl. (I also cooked a 10-oz. package of fresh spinach instead of using the frozen, just because I like fresh spinach better.) Everyone loved it, and both my father-in-law and husband said it was the best they have ever had. I am sure this will be requested again soon!
