Grandma's Farmhouse Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This brine helped produce the moistest turkey I've ever eaten. I did rinse my turkey before roasting. I stuffed the cavity with celery tops and fresh herbs, then rubbed the skin with a bit of canola oil and sprinkled on freshly ground black pepper. Temperature-wise, my turkey tested done long before I expected it to. I chose to roast it minutes longer and it was still moist, juicy, and perfectly roasted. I did find a few bites of meat to be a bit on the salty side, but no one else seemed to notice. I might cut back on the salt the next time as I feel there was more than enough. This is not a pretty brine - it's a murky brownish color. The finished bird is much more appealing.

Sunny Day Sunflower Dog Treats

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
Max and Oliver loved these. They smelled so good while baking that I almost ate one myself. My flax seeds were the golden ones, so they aren't showing up in the picture. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

JG's Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
The final product was pretty tasty, but this recipe is somewhat labor-intensive for a one-pot meal. This was a hearty and satisfying meal in the end, and the leftovers were great heated up for lunch the next day.

Strawberry Delight

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
I'm rating this 5 stars on taste. I took this to work and had several requests for the recipe and no leftovers. The cream filling made with cream cheese is a nice change from the usual pudding. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and used a combination of strawberries and blackberries. I also only used 3/4 of an angel food cake, but all the cream filling. This completely filled my trifle bowl. I guess I need a bigger bowl, but everyone seemed happy with the proportions. Thanks for a keeper!

Lemon Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Tasty, and simple enough. I used Meyer lemon juice, so I used more lemon and less orange. I also used corn starch as I was unable to find arrowroot powder. I served this with an apple cake and it was delicious.

Texas Yum Yum

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This is really quick to make. My graham cracker crust turned out to be one of the larger, extra serving ones (10 inch rather than 9). The ingredients in the recipe barely fit in the larger crust, so I'm not sure how well they would fit into the 9 inch crust. I did use white chocolate pudding instead of vanilla. There were no leftovers.

Broiled Parmesan-Lemon Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This was really tasty and simple to make. This recipe comes together quickly which makes it great for a weeknight meal. I'll be making this one again soon.

Irish Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Honestly, this was a little weird. Irish cream just doesn't go all that well with the other ingredients on the list. The sauces on the chicken and beans tasted more like they belonged on a dessert than a dinner. There is absolutely no seasoning anywhere in this recipe. Maybe it's implied, but "salt and pepper to taste" would be the bare minimum. I added salt, pepper, and garlic powder on the chicken before baking. One hour is a long time to bake boneless chicken breasts, and mine were pretty dried out even though I stopped the baking after 50 minutes. Stuffing the chicken with uncooked bacon sounded like a very bad idea, so I did cook my bacon first. It did not overcook even after 50 minutes. I added freshly ground black pepper to the green beans. These were my favorite part of the meal, before I added the sauce (I skipped the peanuts). I also added pepper to the potatoes, which I put into the oven for about 20 minutes while the chicken was baking. I ended up adding salt and more pepper to them before eating them. In short, this meal wasn't a success, especially for the amount of work it required, and my husband hardly ate any of his portion. I won't be making it again. Sorry.

The Best Marinade Around

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This is really good. I've made it twice - once exactly as the recipe states, and once using lime juice instead of lemon. Both are delicious! I'll be making this again and again.

Luscious Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Though I followed the recipe, I found this to be less flavorful than I would have liked. It would have also been helpful to know the preferred size of lobster tails to use. Mine were on the small side, so I added extras, but still found there to be too little lobster meat in the finished soup. I ended up adding extra seasoning to this recipe.

Irish Apple Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Topping this cake is key. By itself, it's a bit dry, but has a nice flavor. I sprinkled the top of the cake with a little cinnamon before baking and served the cake with a tart lemon sauce.

Cream Cheese Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Very tasty! I used red potatoes and left the skins on instead of peeling them. I did need to cook the cabbage and onions longer than stated to soften them. I added a bit more salt and pepper, as well. This was a very satisfying side dish for our St. Patrick's Day dinner.

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I have to admit, when it comes to peanut butter ANYTHING, I'm not a fan. My husband and oldest son love peanut butter cookeis, though. They love these ones best of all. This is the recipe I keep coming back to.

Angela's Amazing Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Honestly, I'd give this 2 1/2 stars if I could. This is amazingly BLAND. I added onion, salt, and garlic to the water while cooking the chicken and mistakenly thought the broth would add the needed flavor to the dish. I was so wrong. This recipe lacks any seasoning beyond salt in the water that cooks the potatoes. I added chopped baby carrots and frozen peas or more color and veggie flavor, but this recipe desperately needs some minced garlic and onion, salt and pepper at the very least. My crust took a full hour to have any color at all. At that point it was just a light brown. The recipe has possibilities, but it needs help.

Lime Creams

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
These are tasty and very pretty little cookies. I stress "little" because I believe their is a mistake in this recipe. It instructs the baker to use 2 TBSP of dough for each cookie. Those would be huge cookies, and come nowhere near the 36 servings indicated as other reviewers have mentioned. 2 tsp. is more like it. This amount of dough made 30 cookies, and each was filled nicely with the filling. I half expected the filling to spill over when baked, but it didn't. I did use just one drop of food coloring and the color was just right. I am a little puzzled about the name of these as there is really nothing creamy about them. These would be a nice green dessert for St. Patrick's Day, especially with a bit of green color added to the dough.

Lots of Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
These are amazing! Just the right ratio of crunchy to chewy. Chocolate and cherry is a delicious combination. The coffee flavor enhances the overall flavor very nicely. Next time I'll be doubling this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Easy German Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This was very tasty, but the edges baked up quite hard by the time the middle was done (which took longer than indicated in the recipe). The cream cheese filling blended nicely with the chocolate cake. This would have been a bigger hit if the edges hadn't dried out.

Jalapeno Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Good, but very, very spicy. Don't get me wrong - I love spicy food. Maybe my peppers were extra hot, since I used home grown jalapeno peppers (canned). I may make these again, but will cut back on the peppers.

Eddie's Special Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This is a good flavor combination. It hardly needs the dressing with all the flavors from the veggies and cheese. I put the cheese on the burgers and put a lid over them for a minute to melt the cheese, then topped with the veggies. This did remind me of a Philly Cheese Steak.

Skillet Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Ketchup? I thought it sounded strange, but it worked. I took an extra step and blanched and peeled the tomatoes first. I used whole wheat pasta, and it worked very nicely with the sauce and veggies. Very tasty!
