Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
This was pretty good, but lacked a little spice. It has a lot of spices in it, but next time I would add some cayenne pepper to give it a little kick. I prefer "Aloo Phujia" on this site, and would rather add garbanzos to that recipe.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
Stick with the recipe not the reviews for the nuts. I tried both the walnuts (recipe) and the pecans (suggestions) on separate days. The walnuts were far better. I made this simple, I melted the butter, stirred in the vanilla. Then I dumped in the flour and powdered sugar and stirred until it was mixed. Then I dumped in the nuts that I ground in my food processor. They were easy to shape into balls and came out great. Make sure you wait though until they are absolutely cool before rolling them in sugar, at least a few hours or overnight. Otherwise you end up with a sticky, gummy mess.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
I made this sauce without the cornstarch and water and put my chicken thighs in it overnight to marinate. When I cooked it, I put it on the grill instead on low heat for almost 40 minutes. The sauce I put in a small saucepan on the grill, brought it up to a boil, and basted my chicken with it every 5-10 minutes when I flipped it. I was told this was the best chicken I've ever made in my life. Plus, I had hardly any cleanup! No sticky baking pans for me! Try this method!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
This was so good, I'll make this again for sure. I added a splash of red wine vinegar into the bowl before I put them in a glass pyrex. I also added fresh chopped garlic and whole cashews. Pine nuts would be a good addition as well. This was awesome right out of the oven, but I don't think the leftovers would be so great.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I threw this all in the rice cooker with a little more broth and it was so easy! I also added garlic, and instead of salsa I used pico de gallo I had on hand.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I know, it doesn't need anymore reviews, but this was better than any guacamole I've ever had before. I added about twice as much cilantro and I couldn't get enough!

Honey Oat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
This came out very good, but I did cook it for an extra 10 minutes. I didn't add any extra brown sugar or honey because I didn't want sweet bread, but I think it could've used it. Next time I will add an extra tablespoon of both honey and brown sugar. Great right out of the oven!

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
I never knew grilling corn on the cob would be so much easier. I put them on the grill with the husks on, and grilled them until the husks were burned and falling off. Then I made the sauce that SKHOUSTO suggested, only I mized it all together. I found that I didn't like the sauce on the elote, but the sauce was perfect as a condiment on my garden burger!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
I made this to the T except I didn't use shrimp! The sauce looked awesome, so that's what I made! I served it over spaghetti and put chicken over it and tofu (the Caribbean Delight recipe from this site). I will keep the sauce recipe to use again!

Caribbean Delight

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
I made this with both chicken breasts and tofu. I marinated both overnight and grilled them the next day. It smelled great making the marinade, but I was a little concerned it would be too sweet. It wasn't sweet at all though! It smelled great on the grill and tasted even better. I served it over pasta.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Since I don't eat meat and wanted to try this recipe, I made a separate pan for myself with tofu. The tofu turned a strange shade of purple, but it was delicious! I used fresh mushrooms which made it even better. Then I used a Shiraz, which was the only "red" wine I had on hand (that I was willing to give up for cooking!). I will definitely make this again!

Jean's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
The only change I made was I added fresh garlic. I also used baby carrots because I didn't have any whole carrots. Pretty good!

Pork Apple Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
These were really easy to make, I added fresh chopped garlic as well. I also grilled the pineapple for a few minutes while I toasted my hamburger buns. I was told they were very refreshing, a nice change from the regular burger!

Bacon Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
For my first roasted chicken, this turned out five stars! I stuffed it with chunks of onion, carrots and lime wedges. I wish I had remembered to put some garlic in there too, next time! My house smelled better than on Thanksgiving Day!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
Pretty easy, but you can cut the oven cooking time down to 30 minutes. Tastes great!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
I made the crust as the directions stated but it was way too greasy! Either it needs to cook longer at a higher temp, or have less butter. Soggy. Then I made the mistake of listening to the reviews to double the lemon portion. The whole thing was soggy, gelatinous. Teach ME to listen to the reviews instead of the instructions! If anything, don't double the recipe and make it in a 9x9 pan instead.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
These went over very well, I got two thumbs up! I'll keep this one to use again. I barbecued them on low for almost an hour, they looked great too!

Mock Lobster

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
This seemed to go over well, but no one seemed to think it was lobster or tasted anything like lobster. I marinated chicken breasts for 24 hours before putting them on the grill. I used leftovers to make chicken salad wraps for lunches.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
These were good, but oh so sweet! I baked them for 45 minutes because they seemed soft in the middle. In the end, they were a bit hard around the edges. I think I'll try a few of the other brownie recipes next!
