Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2004
I will be a sophomore in college this year and thus spent all summer learning to cook. This recipe was easy and delicious. My entire family had only compliments for this dish, which is something since my dad is a commercial fisherman and we can be quite picky about fish recipes. I subbed celery flakes for the celery salt, since we didn't have any. Cooking required a few more minutes longer also. My mom asked for the recipe- the ultimate compliment. Try this.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
Delightful. I made these for a friend's birthday. They are moist, soft, chocolate goodness. I liked how the brownie frosting required only mixing, and no heating. I frosted them immediately after taking brownies out of oven, which made spreading it much easier since it semi-melted (it hardened up after a few minutes and by being semi-melted it seemed to soak more into the brownies.) The birthday boy liked them. 12/19- Made them again for Christmas baggies. Yum. Turned out better the second time,when I doubled the recipe.

Sweet Balsamic Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
My chicken was marinated for 8 hours and I baked it. I was excited since I love balsamic vinegar. However, this recipe was bland, dry, and "blah." Perhaps I cooked it too long or didn't add enough pepper. It needed some salt. Maybe next time...

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
Delicious! I used baby carrots and 3/4 an onion, 1/2 sliced and 1/2 chopped. I also used 1/8 of white pepper, simply because the recommended amount is usually too spicy for my family. I normally dislike mushrooms, but in this, they are wonderful. It will be a common dish in my kitchen when I return for my sophomore year at college.

Chicken in Every Pot Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2004
Decent tasting, but nothing spectacular. It has something of a southern-tasting zing to it (probably from the pepper.)

Squash and Apple Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2004
It was too much work for what you got from the taste. The cutting and peeling of the squash along with the 55 minutes required cooking time made this dish impractical for me. It only tasted decently. Thanks though.

Red Wine Sesame Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2004
These were pretty good. They have a crisp outside and are only tinged with sweetness. The biscuits are very dense-don't use these if you're looking for something fluffy. I used the egg white on half of them, but it picked up far more sesame seeds than the amount called for, so I stopped coating them, and it worked fine. I only ended up with about 20 biscuits, but that could easily be my fault. The dough was slightly difficult to roll into logs for cutting. Yet overall, they are a mellow, tasty, and filling treat.

Baked Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2004
Quick and easy to make. Very moist and juicy. I cooked 5 chicken thighs for 50 minutes at 375. I didn't toast the sesame seeds prior, but they toasted quite a bit in the oven. You could taste the soy sauce which made it much better, but the sesame seeds gave it a slightly unpleasant texture.

Forgotten Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
Delicious. These were crunchy from the sugar on the outside, yet warm and moist on the inside. And the cholate kiss gave it such a perfect finishing touch. I put these in Christmas goody bags for my friends, and this cookie kept on getting complimented. Thanks!

Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Delicious. I made this, took off somewhere, and 3/4 had disappeared in my absence. : D Easy to make, and smells good in the oven.

Cheryl's Spinach Cheesy Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Decent. I froze it, dethawed it, and cooked it, and it turned out ok. Nothing too special, and mine was a bit watery, although that may be due to the freezing. It tasked fine, and I did like how it didn't mix dairy and meat, so I could cook it for my Jewish roommate.

Beth's Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2005
First, the bottom of these cooked much more quickly than the tops, so I had to take them out sightly before they were done in order to keep the bottoms from blackening and ruining the cookie anyways. Without frosting, they are somewhat dull, with a slight citrus tinge. The frosting makes them so much better, although the recipe doesn't make enough to cover all the cookies. I halved the recipe overall, which might account for the burning tendency of the bottoms. Overall, they had a unique flavor for a cookie, but are not worth the work.

The Easiest Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Way too spicy. All I tasted was the pepper. However, the chicken did produce tender chicken and is smelled good while cooking. Thanks though!

Italian-Style Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
I loved this. It was amazing and reminded me a lot of lasagna. I used 1 spaghetti squash, and altered the recipe a bit. I didn't include zucchini or lemon. I substituted 3/4 can of stewed tomatoes for the tomatoes and added 3 cloves of garlic. My twin also thought it was delicious. Definately more of a lasagna taste than a spaghetti taste though.

Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
Nothing special. The dough was somewhat dry and hard to work with. Sprinkles taste much better than the cinnamon sugar. Good though for last moment cookies. My roommate like them a lot, but she likes anything with cinnamon. : D Give 'em a try.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2005
Very good, especially when toasted with butter. The consistency reminds me of cornbread, and it is somewhat a dense bread. I've never made soda bread before, but wanted to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Wrapping it and leaving it overnight really does add to the depth of the flavor. I followed the recipe exactly. Very fresh tasting.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2005
Delicious. I made it for a potluck, and everyone loved it. The bread is a bit more crumbly than most, but that is the extent of its faults. I used a 9x9 square glass dish, and it was still declicious. When I return home (I'm in college) I'm going to challenge my Mom's cornbread with this recipe. : D Thanks!

Puerto Rican Garlic Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2005
Delicious. Very flavorful. I marinaded 4 chicken thighs for 8 hours and cut the recipe to 3 servings. I cut down the pepper to about 3/4 a teaspoon (for 3 servings) and only had about 1 teaspoon of minced garlic (cuz I was out). It was a bit oily, but overall, exceptional taste and very easy. I baked it in the oven for 45 minutes at 350. Might add boiled baby carrots and potatoes next time around to soak up some of the flavor.

Balsamic Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
These were ok. They were decent hot, and better cold. The tang of the balsamic vinegar was especially noticeable, so if you like balsamic vinegar, give this a try.

Attitude Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
Delicious, although it dirtied up quite a few pans and you have to keep an eye on everything at once. It is quite filling though, and has a unique taste to it. I would definitely make it again, and plan to prepare it for my family when I return home from college. I would keep my alteration of more garlic too. I had to pare it down, so I cut the recipe in half, and changed it up slightly based on what I had on hand and personal taste. I used 2 chicken thighs, 1/8 cup of chopped onion, 2 garlic cloves, 1 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms, fat free italian dressing, healthy choice cream of chicken soup, and actually left out the salt and pepper, which had no detrimental effects on the taste- it was still really good! I also used fresh broccoli, which I simply softened in the microwave, and rotelle pasta. The chicken mixture doesn't look that "pretty" so I wouldn't use it as a presentation piece. It tastes like chicken strogonoff with some zip. : D Definately give it a try.
