Grocery Store Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
"tastes like the middle of an oreo". If you're looking for bakery/grocery store frosting, this is it. I made a few subs (skim milk instead of water, bit more salt) but otherwise followed exactly. I will use this over and over. Fresh shortening is vital here. Thank you!

Grilled Tamarind and Orange Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
Very tasty with one complaint. I made this exactly as directed, using tamarind paste, not concentrate. It took an extremely long time to attempt to cook the tamarind down (it remained in lumps even after an hour of vigorous boiling and even hitting it w/ a stick blender). The end result of the glaze was tasty but too sour for me, so I ended up doubling or tripling the sugar. It was still plenty sour then. I loved the chicken overall, but next time I will either use whole tamarind or find the concentrate liquid to ease preparation of the glaze. I will absolutely make this again. (Oh, and I did have to bake and then broil rather than use the grill. 425 for 15-20 mins and finish under broiler w/ glaze... was perfect).

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
Followed recipe and it was nearly perfect. Next time did 1 TBSP water, and then traded out half a teaspoon of pure lemon extract and milk to make up the other TBSP of water. Also used gel food color. Glaze was perfect, not too thin, not too thick, dried nice, hard and shiny with great flavor. Thank you!

Chile Colorado

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2013
This was my first attempt at making my beloved Chile Colorado. Unfortunately, while my husband liked it, I was a bit disappointed in the outcome. I followed the recipe exactly but found the flour made the sauce rather pasty and detracted from the flavor. I used just regular "New Mexico dried chiles", but think this needs the ones that specifically say "hot" and maybe some seasoning changes. Thank you for a good starting point on working with dried chiles!

Perfect Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
This is the single best pie crust recipe I have come across! It is tender, flaky, very tasty and easy to work with. I do think it needs an egg or milk wash to improve the color though. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Salmon and Pesto with Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I really liked this combination of pesto and salmon, but it did not go over well with the family at all. Thank you anyway, it was nice to try it!

Pineapple Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
I made this in the slow cooker, mostly as written, except due to using the slow cooker I omitted the water and ketchup and added some carrots, red bell peppers and onions. I made the sauce on the stove as written and poured it over raw cubed chicken in the slow cooker and cooked on low for 5-6 hours, removing the lid at the end to re-thicken. This was great and everyone loved it!

Asparagus Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
As written I found this recipe a bit too bland and greasy for our tastes, however by adding 1-2 cloves of minced garlic when melting the butter, cutting the EVOO back to 2 TBSP and adding a healthy splash of lemon juice at the end I ended up with a dish my husband can't get enough of. Thank you for a great starting point!

Ono Butter Mochi

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
I made this as written except for using first press coconut milk in place of half of the milk stated and topping with additional shredded coconut in the last 15 minutes of baking (so it could toast). I wasn't sure how to store it, so I put it in the refrigerator. When served cold it tasted good, but had a very odd texture. I found that keeping the mochi out at room temperature produced a slightly more cake-like texture that my family adored and readily devoured. Definitely a keeper. Thank you!

Scott's Coast-to-Coast Famous Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Made precisely as directed, following the cook's notes for "hot" wings, these were interesting and tasted ok, but were not at all what I expect when I want Buffalo Wings. The black pepper seemed very out of place, both in texture and taste. Same with the red pepper flakes. I expect buffalo wing sauce to be smooth in texture and hot in flavor. Fortunately I also made a standard batch of sauce... butter+Frank's(+habanero poweder+cayenne powder for extra kick). Interesting, but not what we were looking for. Will not make again. Thanks anyway!

Salisbury Steak

3 stars as written, 5 modified to suit my family. We just didn't care for the original gravy at all. Thank you for a wonderful starting point!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Made exactly as directed (the first time) this was really good and definitely got 4 stars from my picky eaters. The chicken falls right apart just before you start cooking the dumplings. It would have had 5 stars but we felt it needed some more seasoning. The second time I added some salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary and used 1 tsp chicken granules and 1 cup of water. I used a can of Grands biscuits with butter and that was plenty of dumplings. Thank you for a real family pleaser! PS: I've made this again and this time out of necessity had to start with frozen breasts, and they worked just as well and were done within 5 hrs on high (setting #4 on West Bend slow cooker). Very flexible recipe!

Barbeque Pork Two Ways

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
Followed the recipe exactly with the exception of not slicing the meat before cooking, and using about 3.5# pork shoulder but not doubling the sauce. This was really good. A thinner, sweetish tomato sauce (not thick like bottled BBQ) accenting melt in your mouth pork perfectly slow cooked. Even my 7 yr old liked it. This one is a keeper for us! Thank you!!

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
So easy and SO good! I made these tonight on a whim. Used 1 stick salted butter and 2/3 cup Hershey's Special dark chips as that was what I had on hand. Added 1 tsp vanilla to the eggs, otherwise followed recipe exactly. Used Baker's Secret spray on ceramic ramekins set on a heavy jellyroll pan and they unmolded perfectly. Topped with homemade whipped cream. Husband says it was the best dessert he has ever had. Thank you!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
Made as directed except for covering with foil for most of cooking time and using honey mustard instead of regular. Used mild curry due to feeding small children. Marinated chicken in sauce overnight, then baked as directed the next day. We all loved it, but the flavor did not penetrate the meat very well. Next time I will remove the skin and/or use cut up breast meat. May try cooking in slow cooker. Thank you for a great recipe!
