Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
I am NOT a baker, measuring is not for me, but this receipe was easy and AMAZING! It was the first cake I've ever done from scratch, and I made it for my father's birthday. Everyone raved and raved. So moist and flavorful, without having too many elements. I made 2 round cakes, and layerd them. I highly recommend this recipe!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Yes,it was easy, but SO DRY! I even added a few tablespoons of butter to the crockpot, and under the skin, but unfortunately I dried the heck out of a $30 turkey breast. Oh well, nothing a little gravy can't fix.

Spanish-Style Quinoa

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
It was ok, but surprisingly bland. I had to really up the spices to get anything out of this. I'll probably add more green pepper, and maybe some black beans or corn to add more texture. Otherwise, it was pretty mushy.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
This was fine. It really didn't have a ton of flavor. Just too creamy, and turned out mush. No one raved, and it took much longer too cook than expected. Next time, maybe I'll add onion or peppers. Something to make it not so one-dimensional.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
I don't know. I followed it exactly, served it with spaghetti, and I just wasn't blown away. It was just ok. Lots of different things going on in there.

Red Pepper-Salmon Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
Absolutely delicious, and the sauce is SO versatile. I had everything on hand expect the cilantro, but I bet it would be even better with it. To give it some color, I added some chopped spinach to the sauce as it cooked down. Delicious! This had just the right about of heat from the jalapenos. I didn't bother to add 1/2 and 1/2 as some suggested. As good as a cream sauce may have been, it doesn't need it. The only change I might make next time is to broil the salmon to give it that nice firm flakiness. Baking is left the color a little weak.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
What a delicious treat! I put the smokies in a large ziplock baggie, and coated them with the brown sugar. Left them in the fridge for a few hours. Then, after wrapping, putting them onto toothpicks, and laying them on the baking tray, I took the melted sugar and poured some over each one. AMAZING. I've made them both ways, and here you get more of that great brown sugar flavor. Be sure to flip them over 1/2 way through baking to crisp the bacon.

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
It was ok. It was cream cheese with jalepenos. That's really it.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Absolutely delicious. I was very weary of using taco seasoning, since I didn't want a taco-flavored soup. You'd never know it was in there. The seasoning added the perfect blend of spices and spice. I skipped the zucchini because I didn't have one, and added 2 cans of diced tomatoes for texture. 10 people watching football on a cozy Sunday all raved. Thank you for the perfect chili recipe!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
This was delicious and easy. I only gave it 4 stars because I used beef broth instead of water, added a FULL Guinness, and cooked on LOW 5 hours, added veggies & potatoes for 3 more hours, and cabbage for 20 minutes at the end. TONS of flavor.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I had never made beef stew before, and this was delicious! I used baby red potatoes, and they cooked very fast. I also used Montreal steak seasoning to give it more flavor. Other than that, I really stuck to the recipe, and was very pleased with the results!

Reuben Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
What can be bad about this pizza?? I usually like to add my own flair to recipes, but I followed this to the letter, and it was PERFECT. The caraway seeds were a nice touch, but definitely not necessary, and I did not add the pickles. I really can't find a flaw. Delicious!

Turkey a la King

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I'm sure the original recipe is fine all put together, but what's an "a la king" without green peppers & pimentos? I used a ton of fresh mushrooms, onions, and green peppers cooked in 2T of butter. I then added 1 can of fat free condensed cream of chicken soup instead of the flour & cream. (My boyfriend can't do milk products.) That made a great meal. Served over the mashed potatoes I had left from Thanksgiving. Made a delicious meal!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I honestly LOVED these shrimp. I thought the flavor was AMAZING, but I may have cheated a little. I didn't have tomato sauce, but I DID have Mrs. T's Bold & Spicy Bloody Mary mix in my fridge. While it didn't exactly add any spice, it probably added flavor. And, boy! What a flavor!!!! I'm going to make these for a large group of guests this week, and I cannot wait for them to try it!

The Real Mojito

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
We just got back from Mexico, and were craving this delicious drink! This recipe was even BETTER than theirs! Absolutely make the simple sugar (1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water in a saucepan. Heat very slowly, stirring constantly, until the liquid is clear). We used pint glasses, so 2 large spoons of it was plenty. I followed the recipe step by step, and we all really enjoyed them!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I'm only giving this 4 stars because I think it's absolutely necessary to double the dressing. Otherwise, amazing flavor, great recipe. I did also add what feta I had left in my fridge, and it was really delicious!!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I NEVER bake, so we were very nervous to try these when they came out of the oven. But, oh my, they were AMAZING! We followed the recipe exactly, except we took the advise of other members to crush up the banana instead of chunks. Everyone loved them, and the crumb topping was just that extra bit of "wow"!

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I can't imagine this being any good without some flavor! Use fresh spinach over frozen. You can add this with the cream cheese, and it wilts nicely. I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic in a small amount of butter, then cooked chicken for a few minutes until white on all sides. This seemed to lock in some flavor. I also added red pepper flakes, salt & pepper to the chicken for a boost. Overall this is a wonderful & simple recipe, although I had to thicken with corn starch. I think a can of cream of chicken soup would have substituted the cream cheese & chicken broth nicely. An ok recipe with changes.

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
ABSOLUTELY delicous. I followed the other comments and used a VERY small amount of greek dressing, added at the last minute, instead of the oily artichoke marinade. I used cherry tomatoes, and left the olives on the side for those who like them. This got RAVE reviews at our dinner party of 6. Try this, you'll LOVE it! I'm so glad I doubled the recipe for my family picnic this weekend. I hear it's even better after a few days.
