Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
This was very good, very easy, but not as creamy as the recipe I usually use. Changing the ratio of cream to half & half would make it creamier. My ice cream maker doesn't make a gallon of ice cream so I reduced the recipe for 1 1/2 qts. I dissolved the sugar in some warmed half & half because I was afraid it might be a bit grainy, and I also added a cup of chopped strawberries-yum! I like that this recipe doesn't use eggs or canned sweetened condensed milk.

HERDEZ® Creamy Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
OK, so I didn't follow the recipe exactly...I used sour cream, not yogurt (already had sour cream in the fridge), and I added the sauce in increments so it wouldn't be too spicy for me and wound up using about half the jar. My husband and father-in-law really enjoyed this! Nice change over the usual guacamole.

Grilled Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
These were pretty good but I think I would give it 5* with beef bouillon instead of chicken. I used smaller onions and did one per person, serving them whole. FYI: The thing about serving them whole instead of cut up in the juice is that the centers were rather salty. My rating is not based on this though, since the recommendation is to cut them up.

BBQ Potatoes with Green Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
These did not brown at all and could really benefit from some garlic. I sprinkled additional green onion and fresh parsley on at serving time. Just ok. Maybe would be better served with sour cream, bacon bits and cheese-wish I'd thought of that sooner.

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
I thought I was going to love this but it came out burnt to a crisp. I did keep it off the directly lit grill burners so I'm not sure what happened. I took a taste of a little piece that wasn't burned and it was sooooooo salty that even if it hadn't been burnt, we would not have been able to eat this anyhow. Such a shame.

Teriyaki Marinade II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
Very good! I minced my garlic then crushed it with my knife blade. Marinated chicken for 4 hours before grilling it and it came out moist and flavorful. Served with sesame vegetables and purple jasmine rice.

Ham Bone Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
I found this to have a lot of broth; I like my chowders nice and thick. Next time I think I'd use less chicken stock. Maybe use cream instead of milk. And pureeing just one cup of the chowder didn't add very much body. Great flavor though. I wasn't sure about the cumin but it was tasty! I added my potatoes and carrots about 2 hours before we ate dinner and kept it on low.

Honey Baked Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
The chicken came out bland, and the sauce was runny and the curry flavor was not noticeable. To fix the sauce, I dumped it in a pot and thickened it with a slurry. I also added WAY more curry powder, as well as some red pepper flakes. Prior to cooking, the chicken should be seasoned with salt and pepper. Next time I think I will pound the chicken a little and cook it on the stovetop. My sauce came out delish after I tinkered with it a bit.

Quick Couscous with Raisins and Carrots

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
I really wanted to like this but it was terribly bland. Too bad, it looked fabulous. I recommend using all broth and no water, and it is in desperate need of salt and pepper.

Brown Sugar and Mustard Ham Glaze

Reviewed: May 28, 2013
Simple and tasty! Used this on ham steaks in a skillet, and served with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. Will be using this again for sure!

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
Needed more honey and my milk developed a yucky film from heating.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
This was good for breakfast. I tried it several different ways: with whole grain bread and with buttermilk bread, and grilled with butter and with cooking spray. Whole grain bread is the way to go and the spray comes out equally as good as real butter! My husband said it was missing something and put honey on his.

KFC Coleslaw - Knock Off

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
Well this was MUCH BETTER than KFC coleslaw! I added a little sprinkle each of celery seed and poppy seeds. Yum!

Rosemary Lemon Margarita

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
Putting a sprig of rosemary in the glass did not add any flavor, just a visual, and I prefer a margarita without the bubbles from the club soda.

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
Great margarita. I really like using fresh squeezed lime juice and not using a pre-made mix!

Gouda and Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
Very good soup! Rich and yummy, certainly NOT bland! I did use freshly grated nutmeg-it makes a big difference. My only problem was I wish I had doubled the broccoli as I felt it needed more.

Honey-Dijon Chicken With A Kick

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
This is more 3.5 than 4. Make sure you season the chicken with salt and black pepper first! Also, instead of just sprinkling the red pepper flakes on top of the chicken, I sprinkled them and then flipped the chicken over to get both sides. I didn't measure the flakes, I just shook them on. When done, the cooked sauce is watery and it would be nice to thicken it in a saucepan by adding a cornstarch slurry and then serving it over the chicken.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
This was very good, but -as much as I LOVE cinnamon- I would prefer a touch less of it. Also, I think it would be better with some crushed pineapple in the cake itself, instead of only having the pineapple as a topping. Will make again with a few minor changes!

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Rigatoni

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
I made this with the 3-cheese Italian-style sausage and penne rigate and it was very good. Skipped the green pepper as I don't care for them and used red and yellow. Would make again!
