Dutch Apple Pie

Dutch Apple Pie

i'm sure this will taste great, but the recipe is very poorly written with a considerable number of inaccuracies in both the ingredients list and the instructions. I ended up having to "wing it" trying to figure out what was meant. Also, i think the butter for the crumb topping should have been very cold, not room temp. 5/10/2012
Diner Meat Loaf "muffins" (6 Points)

Diner Meat Loaf "muffins" (6 Points)

really good - and fun! My husband loved it. This would be a great recipe for kids who might normally dislike meatloaf. The onions and carrots add a nice flavor to the beef, as does the ketchup. And the ketchup on top of each "muffin" is adorable ...and tasy! — frogn 5/1/2012
Chicken Adobo

Chicken Adobo

Wow - this was fabulous! I cut dwn the recipe a little and used bone-in chicken thighs and it only required 40 minutes of stewing. Next time, I'm making a larger recipe and keeping the leftover chicken for a second meal later in the week. My husband loved this! — trisholeary 4/26/2012
Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

great recipe - esp. the cheese sauce, and esp with the cheese I used: Sargento's Reduced Fat Shredded Mexican Blend. However, it took over an hour to bake (total: 1 hr, 20 minutes) and that was even with raising the oven temp to 425 after 30 minutes (and i had my potatoes slived VERY thin!) . I foolishly didn't think to read the reviews ahead of time. Also, I left the cover off for the last 20 minutes to get a nice browning of the cheese on top) I will make it again, but only when i allow enough time to do so. 4/18/2012
Pork Tenderloin Diane

Pork Tenderloin Diane

too sour...both hubby and I disliked the sauce, but the method of prepping the tenderloin was good. — RJWard 4/7/2012
Pilgrim's Rest Oven Stew

Pilgrim's Rest Oven Stew

this is really good. I actually dislike beef stew, but my hubby loves it, so i make it for him on a regular basis. THIS is the FIRST beef stew that I have liked in 30 years of trying every recipe under the sun! — Beachbumette 1/10/2012

Tilapia Parmesan

Tilapia Parmesan

I'm not a huge fan of tilapia...until this recipe. fabulous flavor; easy to make. husband loved it. — Pami 8/15/2011
Lemon Garlic Chicken Thighs

Lemon Garlic Chicken Thighs

My husband liked it; I didn't. I made only 1/3 recipe and tried to adjust baking time, but I felt the meat was still too dry. If I make it again, I am going to lower the temp and the backing time and use a thermometer to allow me to take it out when internal meat temp is okay. — Bob630 8/3/2011
Savory Pita Chips

Savory Pita Chips

this is soooo good. You could really use any seasoning you like. I did not like the oregano in their mix. The "problem" is that you **want** to eat them immediately. Use a good quality olive oil - it'll make a difference — lizmari 8/2/2011
Wonderful Short Ribs

Wonderful Short Ribs

Spectacular recipe - I got great results without browning the ribs first. Also, DOES NOT NEED A CROCKPOT! I did this in Dutch oven on the stovetop, first 15 minutes thing done on High in dutch over, then cooked on low heat for 2 hours. Secret is keeping the lid on the pot and not checking on it. Also - I did not like the amount of Worcestershire sauce and would cut it in half next time around. — Beachbumette 8/2/2011
