Moist Garlic Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
This was a good, simple recipe. Instead of slicing the garlic I used a paring knife to poke holes in the breast and inserted the whole garlic cloves right in. There was a nice garlic flavor throughout the chicken. I took another reviewer's suggestion and opened up the parchment paper during the last 30 minutes so the chicken could brown.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
WOW! I love this soup!! It has to be one of the best recipes I have tried on this site in a long time. Trying to use up a bunch of soft tomatoes and this was the way to go. I used 1 can of Fat free/no salt added chicken broth and a nice extra thick slice of white onion in addition to about 4-6 cloves of garlic (does anyone else wonder if the recipe author means whole cloves as in the spice?? I can't imagine putting a sweet spice such as cloves in this soup, so I used cloves of garlic). No food mill here, so I used my immersion blender right in the soup pot then ran the soup thru a sieve to remove the solids. The roux made an amazing difference in texture - the soup thickened right up and took on that beautiful orange-red color and fantastic silky creaminess that you get with a cream soup - but no cream here! I didn't even add the salt or sugar as I liked the tangy fresh tomato taste in the soup. I will absolutely make this again and tell all my friends too!

Fresh Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
We were really disappointed with this recipe. First I thought the ingredient list was vague: 6 tomatoes - how big? How many ounces? Do you skin and seed them? (I did). Same thing with the onions - how many cups or how large an onion? I cooked the sauce for 30 minutes but the sauce was chunky and pretty watery so I used my immersion blender and blended the sauce which helped to thicken it and then cooked it another hour to get ride of more water. The final product was just so-so. Maybe use it as a base, like pizza sauce, but it wasn't good enough to hold up on it's own on pasta. I won't make this again.

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
This was very good, but I think the fudge sauce could be better, so I can't give it 5 stars. I did make the fudge sauce a few days in advance and I think that ended up helping the flavors blend - it tasted more full and richer after it had been in the fridge a few days. The day I put the dessert together I just microwaved it a minute to make it pourable (but not hot). I also used unsalted butter which I think gave the sauce a richer flavor. I crushed the Oreos in a ziploc bag and the stuff that stuck to the sides I threw out - I think it worked better that way, so I had 99% just chocolate cookie crumbs. Lastly, I put the peanuts on top of the fudge sauce layer for a pretty presentation.

Excellent Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
These were nice oatmeal cookies, but not excellent. My husband really liked them but I thought they felt like they wanted to crumble when you picked them up. I also substituted 1 c raisins for the nuts.

Zucchini Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
WOW - this was delicious!! We just added a little asiago cheese to the mozzarella. Great way to get your veggies and use up some zucchini. It was a little watery after baking - may saute the zucchini next time in hopes of reducing the water content.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This goes back to my childhood - it's an easy and yummy meal - I don't use ketchup and like a little Miracle Whip instead of mayo.

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
Nice, easy recipe but I think it would be a lot simpler to break the noodles into 3" pieces than cut them after they are cooked! I'd try this recipe again with maybe some green onions for color. UPDATE: I made this again with cold whole wheat spaghetti and it worked great. Also added some peas and grilled chicken to make it a whole meal. Yum!

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
I thought this was a little on the sweet side - the crushed berry filling tasted like strawberry jam. I guess I was expecting something more light and berry tasting. I'll try again and cut back on the sugar a bit.

Graham Cracker Crust II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
Shame on me for not reading the reviews before making this crust! I always get confused about what makes up "1" cracker - I guessed wrong and figured 2 crackers per sheet and had WAY too many crumbs and a crust that fell apart. Otherwise, this is a nice, simple graham cracker crust recipe.

Sour Cream-Rhubarb Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
This was rather disappointing the first night but did taste better the next day. I put in a little more rhubarb and I'm glad I did. It felt like something was missing.

Irish Boiled Dinner (Corned Beef)

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
My husband made this for dinner and everyone LOVED it. Since they have all been to Ireland, I guess you can say this tastes authentic!

Cali's Sinful Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
Very good - I loved the twist the chocolate added. Simple but decadent! The vanilla was a bit too much, however. Next time I'll use my own favorite creme brulee recipe and just coat the dishes with melted chocolate. Also I used whole milk (lactaid) with pretty good results - two of them set up well and the other two were a little loose, but still tasted good.

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
This was very good - for some reason the cheese started to separate, so it had a layer of oil. Maybe because we cooked it too long? We bought a good Gruyere, but used leftover sliced swiss cheese from the deli - it tasted great!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
WOW!! I didn't know cauliflower could taste this good! We love garlic - others may find it to be too much in this dish. If only all veggies tasted this good!

Blue Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This was good, but too much mayo and the dip felt SO heavy. Probably will not make again or maybe substitute Miracle Whip for the mayo.

Cheesy French Toast

This was tasty, but a little on the greasy side. We used a mini baguette and served them bite-sized.

Real French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
The wine was way too overpowering. I couldn't even finish my bowl. It also didn't have the nice richness that makes a good French Onion soup.

Brown-Eyed Susan Sweet Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
Yum! These were delicious - better after standing overnight. Didn't even need the frosting but it IS delicious! When using the icing I reduced the white sugar in the batter to 1/2 c. I substituted 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 of the oil with excellent results. Also, I was able to easily make 24 cupcakes instead of sheet cake and 1/2 a batch of icing will frost all 24 cupcakes. I made 1/2 with the chocolate chips and 1/2 without and both tasted great. This seems like a recipe that would freeze well, so I froze a few too. I will update my review when they thaw. UPDATE: they tasted GREAT after having been frozen - just let them thaw in the fridge and they were as moist and yummy as fresh baked.

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
I made this for a set of new parents - froze half and left half in their fridge. They thought it tasted great, but my hubby thought it would have used more seasoning (hence the 4 stars). It was very easy to make in the crock pot. I used 1 1/3 lbs of ground beef, 28 oz can of whole tomatoes (ran a knife around in the can to rough chop them up) and pinto beans instead of cannelini beans (didn't think cannelini beans were in the true spirit of chili!)
