Tomato Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
I found this salad very refreshing. I added a little crumbled parmesan cheese, and chopped up a little cilantro. My husband added a little hot sauce to his. Serve w/ crackers and this is a satisfying lunch when it's too hot to eat a heavy meal

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
My family really enjoyed this recipe. I didn't have celery so I stuffed with lemon slices and also used butter inside and out, and sprinkled with dried rosemary. The recipe used the right amount of everything. My chicken came out a little dry, but that is because I'm still testing my TRIVECTION oven.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
We all really enjoyed this recipe and it was easy to make. Quick too. Next time I'd like to try with almond extract. I accidentally put like 1c too much coconut and then added a little more flour to correct my mistake, and they still came out good. The sweetness factor is a matter of ones palate.

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I used boneless chicken breasts that I had and set the crockpot on high since I started late. I think next time I will dredge in flour as others recommended and use a little more brown sugar. I'd also like to add a little kick and therefore will add a little crushed red pepper to the mix. My chicken was a little dry (next time will use legs), but that seems to be a theme with me. Overall everyone like it.

Emma's Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
These were good, but not my fav. The usual recipe I use from my first cookbook uses buttermilk and turns out crispier on the outside and lighter on the inside. I'm big on the buttery flavor I guess. The texture of this recipe was a little heavier than I like, but it worked in a pinch.

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
I clean the "hairs" from the corn, wrap the bacon, and pull the husk up over. Flavor is perfect every time. I think I'll make some tonight!!!

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
We really enjoyed this marinade. I really loved how it smelled and the skin had a nice shine to it. The chicken had a nice flavor and though we had BBQ sauce on hand, we really didn't use much of it. This marinade stood nicely on its own. Can't wait to have it for lunch today. Thanks JILLYPOOH

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
My son needed caramel popcorn for school tomorrow, so I'm trying this recipe for the first time. I went with all of reviewer "Patracina's" recommendations and it was no fail. I should have looked at more tips, but I'm doing this last minute. I put my popcorn in a big plastic bag and drizzled a little caramel at a time till i think i coated pretty good and it was good like that. I'm baking in the oven and i'm sure it will be better when it cools. Thanks for the recipe!

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
5 stars for flavor and 4 stars for cooking time - I'm glad I read reviews first on cooking time. I baked it at the 20 min/lb scale w/ a 9.5 bone in rib eye. It came out medium, so I think I'll scale that back a little and double the marinade to put all over the roast. This will be my new holiday specialty, thanks!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Just got this out of the oven and boy is this bird moist. I think I even left in the oven a little to long. Seasoning is very flavorful and penetrated all of the meat. Thanks for this easy and tasty recipe. this is one even my older kids can make.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
I've always wanted to try making crepes and this was a great recipe to start with. I used (for 1st time) white whole wheat flour, so I ended up using a little more milk (2%) and water. Still came out great!! My husband wanted his crepes a little more "wet" looking, so I cooked his in butter. Will so use this over and over.

Easy Italian Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Needed a quick chicken recipe for some legs I got on sale this week. I originally had poured some Italian dressing over them in the fridge but didn'tg have time to BBQ. thsi receipe was handy. next time I won't marinade the chicken because it produced a lot of liquid. Didn't have red peper flakes and I'm sure it would have been better with them.

Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
I love popcorn this way, I don't even do micro popcorn anymore. I even sneak it into the movie theater. This is just right for my new healthy lifestyle. Sometimes I just use spray butter for flavor. Thanks.
