Cookies and Cream Zebra Treats™

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
These are really yummy and cute. I made them for Halloween and colored the rice krispie portion orange by dying the marshmallow mixture before adding the cereal, so I had orange and brownish black layers - very cute. I have lots of big plans to make layered rice krispie treats for all sorts of holidays - xmas, fourth of july, etc.

Candy Corn Bark

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This is a great, easy Halloween treat. I made this with my 4 year old and we had fun - it took about 30 minutes. I also substituted peanuts for the raisins and used chocolate creme filled oreos since I couldn't find a "halloween" version. Delicious!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I have made this twice now, and think it is wonderful. The first time I made it pretty much as the recipe stated, and it was delicious. This time I didn't bread the pork chops, but just browned them in a little oil. I then covered them and baked them for 30 minutes. While they were baking, I caramelized an onion in the pan I browned the pork chops in for 30 minutes. I then deglazed the pan with 1/3 cup Marsala wine. I added the Marsala wine, onions, one can of cream of mushroom soup (95% fat free), and 1/2 cup 2% milk along with another 1/4 cup cooking sherry (I didn't have any white wine). I poured over the pork chops, mixing with the juice that was already in the pan. I covered again and continued to bake for another 45 minutes. When finished, they did sit in a 185 degree oven for about an hour. The sauce was to die for, and the pork chops were so tender they literally were falling apart, like they had been in the slow cooker all day. Absolutely fabulous. I highly recommend the Marsala wine and cooking sherry, it adds more flavor than just white wine. Excellent recipe, I'm sure I will make it many more times!

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I thought this recipe was very good and very easy. I only had one onion on hand, and that seemed like more than enough. I sauteed the onion first, then browned the pork chops. I used 2 tsp Better than Bouillon dissolved in one cup hot water. I used lime juice rather than lemon since that was all that was on hand. I peeled and sliced about five large red potatoes and I also grated about 1/2 cup of fresh parmesan. After browning the pork chops, I removed them and deglazed the pan with the dissolved bouillon, then poured the bouillon back into the measuring cup and followed the directions. Near the end of the cook time, I was worried about the potatoes being a little bland so I threw in some more pepper, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning. I thought it was really delicious!!

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
Wonderful recipe that results in a thick, dense, very satisfying beer bread. I used a Leinie's Sunset Wheat and the flavor of the beer came through beautifully without being overpowering. I am looking forward to using highly hopped, flavorful beers - specifically Three Floyds' Alpha King seems like it would make an interesting bread.

Best Hot Crab Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
This was very delicious and everyone enjoyed it. I would have liked a bit more kick to it, I thought it was slightly bland, but then I didn't use the capers, so that may have helped. I would make this again.

Abby's Chicken Rollatini

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
This is a very delicious chicken dish. It's a little bit time consuming, but well worth it for an elegant meal. I generally have used fresh parmesan, but it doesn't stick very well to the chicken - maybe canned parmesan would be better.

Curried Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
This soup was pretty easy to make and turned out perfectly. However, I would only recommend this soup to those that really enjoy the taste of pumpkin. I personally wasn't crazy about the flavor, but others seemed to like it. It's very unusual, with the cumin and the curry. It's worth a try if you want a soup definitely off the beaten path - clearly a lot of people do like it, but not all will.

Sweet Potato Souffle I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
I don't like sweet potatoes very much, but I thought this recipe was delicious. And, for those that like them anyway, they LOVED this recipe! Very easy and pretty fast to make - this will definitely appear on our holiday table in the future.

Roquefort Pear Salad

I made this for my mother's birthday dinner and it was a hit with everyone! Everyone commented on how fancy and delicious it was, and how it was "restaurant" quality. I will definitely make it again!

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
I thought this was good, but you really want to eat it with something complementary to Italian flavors because it is very Italian! Very quick and easy to make, too.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
This was a fairly easy, tasty recipe. If you like rosemary, I would use quite a bit more - I didn't think the flavor came through nearly enough. Other than that, it was as described!

Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2003
This torte is easy to make, and is very, very delicious!!! My only complaint was that I thought it would look prettier than it really did. This could also be due to my own inexperience in putting together things like this, but just be forewarned, that if you're not an expert, you may find that it tastes a lot better than it looks!! That being said, I did take it to a party, and people really did rave about it.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2003
I thought these were very easy and very tasty. You really don't need to use only the spices listed - I think I added cayenne pepper and Season All salt. I also was baking ribs simultaneously at a lower temp, so I went ahead and put them in at 350 for about 40 minutes or so per side, and they turned out great. I flipped them halfway through, and also poured off the excess olive oil that had collected on the pan so that they would get crispy.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2003
There's nothing I can add that hasn't already been said, but all the reviews are very accurate. This is a tremendously easy, tremendously tasty way of cooking ribs. I have never done ribs before, and made them this past Saturday for my husband's birthday. They turned out perfectly. I definitely recommend this method.
