Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I was born and bred in Hawaii and I have to say that this recipe is DELICIOUS - just like they make back home. A few minutes before serving, I added in some shredded cabbage and it was very yummy. I also served with steamed white rice.

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I made this tonight for my husband and family and it was a hit! My 6 year old said it was delicious. My husband doesn't like tomato cream sauces, but he went back for thirds with this recipe! I substituted sweet turkey sausage and it came out great. I plan on making it for an upcoming party this weekend.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I had to come back and rewrite my review. Initially I gave it 3 stars because out of the oven, these cookies didn't taste right. My 6 year old wasn't impressed either. But the cookies the next day were delicious! I baked two batches, the first batch I baked for 8 minutes and the cookies came out really good and chewy. The second batch was timed for 9 minutes, and they were crunchy. This recipe is fantastic considering how simple it is!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
Delicious! I followed the recipe and found it was just a tad too orangy for us. Like others have mentioned, I will cut down on the zest slightly. Other than that, it was gooey and delicious!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I just made these tonight and they are like nothing I've ever had! They are cake-like and like another reviewer said, they bake up exactly as you put them on the sheet. Next time I will most definitely add more cinnamon and nutmeg and I think using the whole bag of chocolate chips is better. I'd imagine that mini chocolate chips would be fantastic in this recipe. I find that with pumpkin recipes, they always taste better the next day. Overall, this is a very interesting recipe worth a try.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2003
I just made this recipe and found it to be rather bland tasting even after I added a tsp of vanilla as some of the other reviewers recommended. It's a quick and simple recipe, but I suggest giving it some 'umph' by being bold and improvising by adding more flavoring. Also, watch the bake time. I baked mine for 60 minutes, and the top of the bread came out stiff and over cooked, but the middle did remain nice and moist.

Giant Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I was looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe that didn't require brown sugar because I didn't have any, and came across this recipe which looked promising. I have never tried a chocolate chip cookie that I didn't like...until I had these. First off, they're really crispy because they're so flat, which really wasn't so bad. The bad part is that mine came out really salty. I mean REALLY salty. I'm not sure why no one else seemed to have this problem. I measured everything exactly as it listed. My four year old didn't even finish his cookie and I didn't bother making the whole batch.

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
With almost 900 positive reviews, I thought this was going to be a sure winner. Boy was I surprised. These are decidedly the worst cookies I've ever made! I had to check myself to make sure I didn't do something right because these cookies are ridiculously fluffy and very, very bland. My 10 year old took one bite and put it back on the pan. My 5 year old came in later and tried one, and the first thing he said was, "These taste weird." I threw them all in the trash.
