Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
I used 4 very-ripe bananas, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and replaced the applesauce with fat free plain yogurt and a bit of vanilla extract. I also used 1/4 cup oatmeal, some wheat germ and 1/2 cup each of wheat and white flours. The result was extremely moist, not at all chewy (I blended wet and dry ingredients separately and then mixed by hand). Next time I'll increase the cinnamon and nutmeg and likely add some dried cranberries or fresh blueberries. Would be divine with some dark chocolate chips for a dessert bread.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I had fairly low expectations, especially since I was only able to marinade for about an hour, but this was delicious. I pounded the chicken very thin and poked holes in it to get the flavors in, used yellow mustard and key limes rather than limes. I broiled it after realizing we were out of charcoal and it turned out very well (I basted a lot). I only used two large breasts and there was barely enough marinade to baste repeatedly so I might make more marinade in the future.

The Original Potato Salad with Real Mayonnaise

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
This is my idea of what potato salad should taste like. I halved the recipe, added dill pickle and omitted the onions. I will never use another recipe again. Good hot OR cooled.

Balsamic Pea Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
Not at all what I expected. I was quite disappointed. I did reduce the amount of mayo a bit, but followed everything else.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I added 1.5-2 TB of white wine vinegar, 2/3 C milk and generously seasoned the chops prior to browning in bacon fat with minced garlic. The vinegar made all the difference between bland and good.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I added lemon zest and 2-3 TB of flour. 2 very large and 1 large sweet potato made 2 pies. Great consistancy and I got lots of compliments.

Simple Pork Rib Dry Rub

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Way, way, way too spicy for our taste, even after reducing the pepper in 1/2.

Pineapple Mojo Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I used a bundt cake pan, and doubled the pineapple topping. It was good, but not "great". I'll try again and make some changes. I believe it'd be better as a sheet cake, and with some additional pineapple flavoring in the cake mix itself. The topping was excellent.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I did add the full tsp of baking soda, and 1/4 cup extra flour. I refrigerated for several hours, cooked 12 minutes at 335 and they came out perfect. It's day two and they are still chewy, yet crisp on the outside. This recipe is a keeper. Oh, and we used white chocolate chips in 1/3, gold raisins in 1/3 and semi-sweet chocolate chunks in a 1/3. The raisin are my favorite, but all are good.

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I used applesauce instead, and skipped the nuts in favor of additional oatmeal. I used three over-ripe bananas and one full cup of fresh blueberries. I cooked it without liners in muffin tins. It was very moist bread, but could have used more sugar. Next time I'll up the sugar and use wheat flour to make it a healthier breakfast bread.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I didn't lattice the top, and added cinnamon and nutmeg. I pre-baked the bottom crust for a few minutes to prevent sogginess. I added almost all of the syrup to the apple mixture, and used a basting brush to cover the top crust with the syrup. I did use all eight apples and didn't find the granny smiths to be too tart at all. Next time I'll toss the apple slices with flour before adding them to the crust and covering with the syrup. It just wasn't quite thick enough after baking.

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
Fantastic recipe. I did alter it (cutting the vingar in half, adding more brown sugar) but not enough to change the flavor. This is sinfully easy to make. I used a very cheap roast, and you'd never know. I've eaten it for two meals a day for the last two days; it's that good.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I cooked a 3.5lb chicken for about five hours on low, and it did indeed leave a fall-off-the-bone tender chicken. I took it out of the crockpot and broiled it briefly to crisp the skin and it looked beautiful. But there was absolutely ZERO flavor! I used seasoning salt, pepper and paprika under the skin, in the cavity and on the skin. I also used lemon juice in the cavity, and lemon juice and chicken broth in the basin with the foil balls. Still no flavor. I ended up serving the chicken with a LOT of BBQ sauce to add flavor. The dark meat had more flavor than the white, and I'll be using the white meat for chicken salad so it's not wasted. I'll use this cooking method again, but I'll be adding veggies and rosemary or whole fruits to the cavity and upping the broth in the bottom.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I made these for a "finger food" party, using frozen non-italian meatballs and Heinz sauce, doubling the sauce to use all the meatballs. They were not gobbled down at the party, and in fact there were more than half leftover. They were terribled re-heated, and we ended up throwing them out. I didn't think they were bad freshly made, but they certainly weren't as good as I was expecting either. I won't make them again.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IX

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly except I used "quick oats". The flavor was quite good as it is, but next time I will add the recommended extra 1/2 cup of sugar, perhaps a little more salt, and switch to white-wheat flour from all-purpose. Very easy to make, so would be great to do with kids. No mixer required!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Very easy to do. I skipped browning before I went to work, and since I hadn't any onion soup packets, I added 3 teaspoons of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of sugar, several beef bouillion cubes and left it as is. I stopped home for lunch to add the veggies and potatoes so they wouldn't be mush and the recipe was delicious. The boyfriend, who is not generally a beef fan, gobbled it up and sopped the gravy up with "Bread Machine Rolls", recipe also from this site.

Perfect Baked Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I loved it, and my friend thought it was fantastic as well. The boyfriend wasn't as enthusiastic, and stated that the cinnamon was too much. I'd make it again the exact same way, though.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I doubled the sauce and added some pork and it was a hit. I served it with brown rice and it was a perfect compliment.

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
This recipe was easy as can be, and got rave reviews from my co-workers at our holiday party. I didn't use the egg white glaze, nor did I add butter. Just as delicious the second day, and no need to re-heat.

Easy Turkey Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
I thought it was just okay. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding some frozen peas for color and veggie serving. We found that it needed a lot of salt and pepper, and won't make it again.
