Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
Regardless of whether this is Hawaiian Teriyaki or Shoyu, it's still a great recipe and super super easy. It was way too cold to grill outside, so I pan cooked it in it's marinade about an hour on simmer until the sauce thickened as others had suggested. I can only imagine it would be even better grilled. Can get fairly spicy. Go easy on the optional pepper items if you're concerned about that.

Glazed Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
WOW! This recipe just made it into my own "Book of Awesome". Leaving out the nuts and raisins was my only change to this recipe. Otherwise I followed it exactly. Funny how many reviewers describe them cake-like and others said they were flat. Mine were flat and spread out very thin on the sheet. I will add a touch more flour next time and maybe bake them a couple minutes longer. When I opened the oven after 10 minutes, I panicked at the dark color and yanked them out. It wasn't that the cookies were over browning, the spices just make for a darker cookie. So test them carefully because mine were definitely not done at 10 minutes. Don't skip the glaze. Just the thinnest layer melted on the still warm cookies is perfect. These cookies remind me of apple fritters only in bite size portions. SUPERB! Even better refrigerated.

Ravioli Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
This is a lovely staple soup that I will make for years to come. After reading the reviews of others, I went straight for doubling the liquid and that liquid was chicken broth, not water. It was the perfect adjustment for a nice mild broth that you can then season later to your taste with more or less salt or soy sauce. Delicious!!!

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
This is by far best my duplication of a Chinese restaurant dish made at home! It was exceptional and many many many thanks to the member who gave the tip on how the Chinese restaurants tenderize beef using baking soda. I let it sit in the fridge with baking soda for about 8 hours and the meat melted in your mouth. I feel like that little trick alone needs to be published in "The Book of Awesome". Super easy, yet perfectly seasoned. I'm super happy with this find!!!

Clone of a Cinnabon

I have made this recipe many times and it is to die for. Really gooey amazing cinnamon rolls. Be sure not to over bake them or they will dry out.

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
Wow! I'd loved to say that we waited until this creation cooled completely, but truth be told, it was ravaged from the pan while still slightly warm. We all loved it. I made it exactly as stated EXCEPT I added another 15 oz. can of peaches. I used a glass pie pan and baked it for 35 minutes. No issues with it being soggy, but I did make sure to drain those peaches thoroughly. I can see this would a great choice to bring to a potluck. It's super easy to make and would travel well with no maintenance. This is a keeper!!

Daddy's Fried Corn and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
I had three helpings of this simple little side dish, so I think my actions speak for themselves! I only had one red onion on hand last night when I decided to make this and it turned out great!!

Shrimp Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Did I really just make this incredible quesadilla AT HOME?? On a WEEK NIGHT? I did! And the family l-o-v-e-d them!! You could really have fun with the recipe (adding other things you might like such as mushrooms or tomatoes). And if it's too much fluff for little kids, just make some cheese only quesadillas while you have the goods on hand. My son chose that route, while the older crowd was all over seconds of this awesome shrimp version!

Glazed Almond Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
This cake is just wonderfully moist and easy to make. I saw a lot of comments about grinding up the almonds. If you have a Trader Joe's by you, they sell "Almond Meal" in the nut aisle which is exactly that -- finely ground almonds. I made the recipe exactly as stated with the exception of upping the amount of Almond extract by another teaspoonful. If you love that flavor anyway???....DO IT! I also chose to stick with the white sugar (over powdered sugar) in the glaze recipe. I heated it until the sugar just started to dissolve so it wouldn't be too watery. Then carefully spooned it on the cake to minimize run off. It was excellent and I would still do it this way again next time. Using a silicone bundt pan, it took exactly 60 minutes to bake perfectly and it came out of the pan with ease. I bought the silicone pan about 5 years ago and would NEVER go back. Always had sticking issues with my old metal bundt no matter how much I prepped it.

Zebra Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
I can't explain why this simple cake is so good, but it just is! Don't question it! I made the original version but sprinkled Starbucks instant coffee over the top instead of grated chocolate. REALLY yummy. For variety the 2nd time around, I used Trader Joe's Cookie Thins which are also a wafer cookie just like the chocolate Nabiscos, but they come in different flavors like lemon and coconut. The coconut crisp wafers are buttery and light and make a superb version of this cake. Something so good is usually not this simple. I'm lovin' it.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
This is a very delicious dish. I made it exactly as the recipe called with a couple of minor exceptions. I left out the corn syrup from the dressing and made sure I used a higher end mustard instead of standard yellow. (Half stone ground and half dijon was wonderful) Also, I sauted the mushrooms in the leftover bacon fat so the oven portion of the process is really just to melt the cheese.

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
WOW!!! These were so different and just plain delicious. More of a super moist bar texture (like a lemon bar) than a brownie (cake texture). I loved the unique flavor of yams in this dessert. I shredded on my finest grater setting and put them in raw and there was no evidence of "yam shreds" in the final product even though the batter was very lumpy. 2 cups of sugars did seem like a lot to me as well. I cut the white and brown down to 3/4 c. each and it was still plenty sweet. Don't skip the glaze! These are a keeper!!!

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
This recipe is almost a duplicate of my Italian grandmothers meatballs, which she kept a coveted secret right to the grave! I've experimented over the years to get something close, but this recipe filled in the blanks for me. The combination of the meats and the tips provided by others to bake the meatballs and not fry them was essential. I couldn't be happier with the result! SUPER EXCITED!!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
I was surprised that I liked this recipe. Not typically a big turkey burger fan, but I did doctor up the flavors a little like other reviewers suggested (added a little soy for example). Despite extra bread crumbs and full eggs with yolks, I could barely form burgers with this mixture. It was fairly mushy, but I managed to get a flattened something to the pan and it did cook up and make a strong patty....so in the end....it all worked out. Very moist and healthy alternative to beef burgers.

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This one is a keeper. The trick of cutting the meat when it's partially frozen is key. I marinated overnight and it was spectacular and tender.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Really great, really healthy and super easy to whip up. I had THREE helpings when I was just supposed to test it out!! I added some chopped tomato to lighten up the density of the dish and it was a wonderful contrast. You could really add whatever you want or just leave it as is.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
This a decent recipe. Not a "wow the company" kind of a dish but a tasty slant on chicken especially if you're already a honey mustard fan. The sauce is great and is perfect just for salad. The nice thing about it is that you'll likely always have these ingredients in the kitchen and can whip this up on the fly.

Chicken Honey Nut Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
This recipe was decent. I love Chinese food and we have some outstanding local restaurants which probably taint my opinion on all home stir frying. I made this according to the directions but quickly found it too "orange" flavored for my taste and bitter. Added more honey as others have and ended up "doctoring" a little more with red pepper flakes, etc. Just OK in the end. It's worth another try, bending some of the flavor proportions in a direction that we like. That is the beauty of stir-fry. You can adjust as you go.

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
These were SENSATIONAL! I made these as part of my Easter morning brunch this year. I've never had such great scrambled eggs before. Let's be honest....it's all that butter mixing with the eggs while they bake that keeps them moist and gives them that wonderful flavor. I definitely used less milk (about 3/4 of what is prescribed) because I know I don't like my eggs that diluted. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. In a glass pan however, I found it took about twice as long to cook. LOVE THIS RECIPE and the oven option when you have 3 or 4 other things on the stove top to keep you hopping. I might try halving the butter next time to ease the guilt and see if they still come out as good.

Baked Spaghetti I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
Why does this work? Who cares, it's delicious! I wasn't feeling the combination even as I was making it, but it does come together for a tasty finish. I followed the recipe exactly (I always pay homage to the originator the first time around). I would probably change the pasta-to-meat ratio next time since I really wanted more meat in every forkful. Italian sauce would be a nice addition. It definitely needs a "rest" period after baking. The 10 minutes noted is not long enough for the flavors to blend. I kept it warm in the oven until the kids got home and it was much better after a couple of hours and even the next day. Nice comfort food for the family. Not a "company coming over" kind of dish.
