Mango Frappe

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
I'm sorry I just don't think this is a good recipe. Imho, mango cannot be distinctive when put up against the strong flavor of orange. To me, this tastes almost like plain orange juice, if you were to buy a brand that has added sugar (like Donald Duck brand, which I used to love as a kid lol). I did reduce the lime by half, so the lime was not overpowering. However, the mango flavor still didn't come through. I tasted my mango before I pureed, so I know I had a good one with flavor! This recipe is too much effort for what amounts to sweetened orange juice. I have one mango left; gonna try a smoothie instead. After I tasted the finished recipe I added more ice, thinking that would help. It didn't, but I decided to freeze the whole thing so I'll have a kind of granita or gelato or whatever it's called. Not a total waste, but I definitely won't make it again.

Country-Style Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
I tried this recipe to find out if the texture of cube steak could truly be "melt in your mouth" like the reviews say. It was fairly tender (for cube steak), but not much more than it would be if I had prepared it on the stove, without having to bake for 2 hours. It wasn't overly dry but it wasn't very moist, either (even though it was soaking in gravy the whole time, as I upped the broth and flour considerably). The only thing left to try is 8 hours in a crock pot, and the idea of taking a whole day to cook CUBE STEAK seems ridiculous to me. I think I'm just gonna stop trying with this cut. The recipe is easy but takes too long for what you get.
