Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
The rub and cooking method are great! I accidentally overcooked my brisket, though. Mine was well done at about the 3 hour mark, so next time I would cook it a little less, or just keep checking it. I also used only about 1 and a quarter tablespoons of chili powder because my 1 year old was eating it. The flavor was perfect. Thank you Christine!

Old-Fashioned Lemonade

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
This was very refreshing and tasty. I used lemon juice instead of fresh lemons, and added about half a bag of frozen strawberries to make strawberry lemonade. Next time I would probably cut down on the sugar, but I'll probably be making this a lot during the summer!

Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
This was delicious! I had a little issue with the crust setting...it kind of turned into all one layer, but it was soooo good!!!

Three-Meat Stromboli

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This was good. I used homemade bread dough. I think it would have been better with some spice; some crushed red chile pepper would have made this great.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
This was delicious! I added some crushed garlic cloves under the skin. My 1 year old ate ALL the dark meat off the bird in one sitting! It was great, and a great way to use all the rosemary from the garden.

Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
I added a bit of salt, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. I think that some freshly grated parmesan would go wonderfully. This is a very good base recipe, and is very versatile.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
My pie crust was a disaster, so I made a biscuit crust to go on this...quite good. (Don't put any biscuit dough on the bottom, as it will make the dish soggy.) The filling was tasty, and flavorful. However, I found the boiled chicken to be a little chewy. I would probably prefer rotisserie chicken. I will make this again, though.

Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
First of all, I cut down prep time by using about 3/4 jar of roasted red peppers. This meal came together very quickly and easily. I served it over spinach ravioli, which I thought was a perfect match. Flavor was great, but the texture was very soupy. I even had to add some cornstarch to thicken it up. I don't think all the butter is necessary, and some crushed red pepper flakes would be a welcome addition. But, on the whole, we really liked this sauce as a nice change of pace from regular red sauces.

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Excellent snack or appetizer. Surprisingly easy, as well. I served these as a light dinner with a big green salad.

Brisket with BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I made this in the crockpot, but followed the directions otherwise. I think I would double the sauce recipe next time, since we like extra sauce to dip our sandwiches in. The flavor was great, though!

Garlic Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I really liked this dish, but I am giving it 4* because I think some modifications make it much better. I doubled the sauce for only 1/2 lb of pasta, and it was barely enough. Also, I added some crushed red pepper as this livens up the dish a bit. But, it was quite tasty, and a great base for your own creation.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This was very sweet. I would cut back on the sugar next time. Maybe use some applesauce for some of the oil too.

Mammaw's Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Finally, a waffle that is light, fluffy, and flavorful! These were excellent...we added a little vanilla, and maybe a tsp of flour to thicken it up, but otherwise it was perfect. Just like a restaurant!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
I always use lemon juice instead of vinegar for my soured milk. That being said, I feel like the proportions were a little odd in this recipe. Not sure what it was, but the flavor seemed a little unbalanced and "after-tastey". I usually do 1 TBS vinegar/lemon juice to 1 C milk for sour milk, (this recipe calls for 2 TBS acid to 3/4 C milk) so maybe there was too much acid. I had high hopes for this recipe, but it wasn't our favorite, sorry.

Boiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This is the easiest and most versatile recipe I have found for a whole chicken. The meat was incredibly tender and juicy too. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
These were delicious, we all loved them! I used 1.5 C all purpose flour and 1/2 C whole wheat flour, otherwise followed the recipe precisely. Perfect!

Chicken Soup With Black Beans and Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Pretty good...I didn't use the "Fast Chicken Soup Base," rather I used chicken broth. I added some bell peppers and diced green chilis I had on hand, but I'd want to play with the seasonings a bit. Good soup, but no real "wow" factor.

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
This was good on our fish tacos, but we felt it was missing a little something. I will probably make this again.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
I'm sorry to post a poor review, but this recipe was just not for us. I like all the ingredients on their own, but together it was not a hit.
