Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Could not stop eating these delicious cookies! Love how they were so easy to make. I doubled the recipe with no problems. I left them in the mixer for almost 5 minutes until it was extra stiff. Then placed in a ziploc bag, cut a hole, and dropped onto cookie sheet.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Just okay. Had to tweak quite a bit more than I really wanted to get some flavor. I did use 1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream, and 1/2 buttermilk but the dressing tasted very "sour creamy"

Cheesy Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
SKIP THE SUGAR! I started adding the 1/4 cup of sugar and realized ahead of time, that's a lot of sugar! I used about 1/2 Tbsp and in the end, that was still too sweet. Other than a sweet punch every so often, it was yummy! I used Mexican cheese and added more bacon for texture

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Yummy, fluffy, and easy to make! I am not a big blueberry pancake fan but using fresh is a must for that burst of sweetness. I agree with another reviewer that they are slightly bland without syrup but who eats pancakes without syrup, haha

Spanish Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Not what I was expecting from a Spanish Rice. I think the tumeric throws me off a bit.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
What a delicious cookie! I would make some adjustments next time around. Little less peanut butter and maybe more oats for more texture.

Creamy Chicken on Linguine

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
The dish was yummy but had several issues. There was not enough sauce and it could have been thicker. Also, the onions were a bit of a turn off, I agree they need to be diced fine. I added portabello mushrooms, green and red bell peppers, and zucchini. I don't think I will try this one again, too much to fix.

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Words can not describe how delicious these pancakes were. CCL, thank you so much for sharing. This recipe is five star. The only change I made was used whole milk (DH bought wrong milk this week) and omitted the nuts.

Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Very good. Nice easy and simple. Can even make the butter ahead, put on room temp on the sizzling steak and let melt on your steak

Ropa Vieja in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
A bland for my taste. I have to admit I forgot the garlic and I know that would have added flavor but this recipe reminded me of a plain pot roast, bland! The taste of the chuck pot roast was so overwhelming and disappointing. A true ropa vieja should be made with a flank steak. Trust me, I was born and raised on ropa vieja growing up in Miami. Trying so many different versions, this recipe was missing something, not just the garlic ;)

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
How refreshing! I omitted the lemon juice and triple sec and subsituted peach schnapps. I did quadruple the recipe and used only 1/2 cup sugar and a whole container of frozen lemon concentrate. I used more brandy and peach schnapps than listed. I will make again.

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Very disappointed by this cake. I needed a lemon cake so I made this recipe. Where was the lemon in this cake??? Am I missing something? I added lemon zest and 1/2 cup of lemon juice to the batter. When it came out it had not risen at all and was dense & dry. It was more of a pound cake or coffe cake. I would give this 1 star except it was a decent coffee cake to dip in your coffee.

Ground Turkey Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
What a delish dish! There was a bit of tang from the cream cheese which was so comforting. I use lowfat milk instead of powdered and water. I also added a little extra of everything. I used a jar of spaghetti sauce instead of tomato. Full of flavor with my added touches!

Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
Delicious! Used a raisin challah which was a perfect compliment. This took approx 1hr and 30 mins at 300. At the last minute, I realized I did not have whiskey so I used Creme Anglaise from this site.

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Expected a burst of orange flavor but it just wasn't there. I am big zester and should have zested the oranges and placed the zest under the skin. Mmm, next time.

Hidden Valley Ranch Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Very good, did not wow but did not disappoint either. The full packet of ranch added too much tang for me. Would definitely try again maybe use 1/2 packet.
