Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Yes, this recipe is a MUST TRY. It is beyond simple, and even though I hate beer, I find this bread is fantastic. I used a can of bud light... A friend of mine said the cheaper the beer the better, lol... Who knows... I might experiment with a dark beer next time.

Apple Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
This has become a repeat apple salad in my family and a requested side dish at events! This IS very sweet and is like a dessert. I also used non-fat greek yogurt and next time I might try a little less brown sugar although anything with brown sugar always makes me happy :)

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
This recipe is amazing. My husband said it even beats his mom's pork chops, which is has been his "birthday dinner" for as long as I have known him. I Added a whole chopped fuji apple with the skin on, and it added the nicest crunch and flavor. I have used both gruyere and regular gouda and its been a hit both times. Not a big parsley person, so I used a lot of basil instead. Yum!

Birthday Bones

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
So simple, and the puppies went berserk over them! I ordered a dog bone cookie cutter online and was surprised that was only an inch long, and I made a double batch of the dough. In the end, I literally had hundreds of little dog biscuits, which were a smashing hit for our last house party and fun party favors for our canine guests! Its nice that they are edible for people too, if a little tasteless, for those guests who don't read the sign that says "Dog Treats"... I should note however, that small dog biscuits need MUCH less cooking time! I think I baked mine for only 10-12 minutes.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I loved this recipe. I have tried others previously, but they fell far short of expectations. The jalepenos in this recipe were great. I picked up some naan from Trader Joes and cooked up some basmati rice. Perfect for Indian-at-home. My brother and I made it together first, and then he made it for his girlfriend for a romantic dinner and made a big impression. I pretty much never cook with salt anyway, so I didn't run into trouble with the salt. I made this recipe once with Greek yogurt since I had it handy, but it was not good. It stuck to the chicken and had this tofu-like texture after cooking. Stick with regular yogurt!

Broccoli Casserole III

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
My mom has always made this recipe for traditional holiday dinners, and I have started making it too. It is always a huge hit, and always a little embarrassing when people say, "mmmmmm what is in this???" We use Velveeta cheese and always lightly steam the FRESH broccoli before baking. I also cut the cheese into cubes and drop it in with the broccoli. Careful not to add too much cheese or steam the broccoli too long, otherwise, you get a velveeta mush (the opposite of dry, as other reviews seem to have experienced), which is actually quite gross.

Garlic and Parmesan Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
Ummmm, YES. I read the reviews on these rolls, and knowing my husband's tastes, I wasn't about to let the appearance of the rolls supersede the taste. So, like all any self-respecting, spouse-loving chefs, I made a few modifications... I actually used Manchego cheese because that's what I had in the refrigerator, and it was awesome. I added a little bit of extra flour and spices to the bread dough--Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, and garlic salt. I also sprinkled some partially dried basil and oregano from the previous night on top. I'll be making this again. Maybe a double recipe.

Pad See Ew (Thai Noodles with Beef and Broccoli)

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
A very good recipe, quick and easy to make. I made it with wide egg noodles that my husband picked up at Safeway (not the Asian kind, and it wasn't the best). I also had red bell pepper and chicken breast on hand, so I used those instead of broccoli and beef I used only half of the recommended amount of oyster sause as another reviewer recommended but made 1.5X the total amount of sauce. I used 2 eggs but will use 4 next time. Even though I changed a lot, I still appreciate the recipe and I like that it is versatile! [For my sister, if you use egg noodles, you have to boil them like usual]

Parmesan-Black Pepper Arborio Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
I liked this recipe and will make it again, but with less pepper. My husband adores pepper so I added a little extra for him, but the pepper really pops in this recipe and was WAY too much for me (although my husband thought it was great). I used fresh parmesan and garlic as reviewers suggested and also some hot sauce because we like our food spicy, and other than the pepper, it was fantastic. I served it with sauteed red bell peppers. Yum :)

Bavarian Mints

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
Help! I melted the chocolate over low heat, and it looked so pretty. Oops, I forgot the butter. No problem, I thought, I would just add it in now. As soon as I did that, my creamy chocolate melt started to solidify. I have run into this problem before with chocolate fondue, and I have learned that more heat DOES NOT fix the problem. So I took my lumpy mixture off the stove, quickly added the other ingredients and beat to hell until it was smooth. Without any extra chilling, I dumped it (there was no pouring involved) onto the pan and coaxed it into a square level shape. Does adding the butter after the fact really matter that much? I don't even like mint chocolate, and I wanted to make these a gift to my husband for our anniversary coming up. Perfection seems to matter a lot more when you are giving away what you are cooking. I think they will taste okay, but I'm not sure what the texture will be like. :( I don't know how to rate this recipe, because clearly I screwed it up somehow.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
Not a good recipe... As other reviewers said, these poppers were so bland and definitely NOT worth the work, time, or calories (I'm health conscious, not a health food snob). This was my first time trying to fry anything other than a turkey, and it was a bust. The breading burned before 2 minutes and the peppers were still very crunchy. The dark brown color and the shape of these poppers made them look like turds (sorry). I could barely bring myself to even try one after I made them. I'm giving this recipe 2 stars because I'm giving the benefit of the doubt with my frying inexperience.

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
As other reviewers suggested, I made 1.5X the amount of lemon topping, but these still came out thin... limp would be a good word, and the lemon topping had this awkward spongy texture. I made these hoping to give some of the squares as a thank you gift, but I would be too embarrassed to give them away. I made lemon bars years ago, and now I am riffling through old boxes trying to find the recipe, because this was was very disappointing. I did like the texture of the crust and it was very easy to make.
