good muffins - my picky toddler even wolfed them down! with regards to the not sweet enough comments, I think it's important to remember these aren't cupcakes. These are on the plain-side, but I simply upped the spices and added some pumpkin pie spice and I think they turned out great. good consistency, look beautiful too."

everyone's right - it's yummy. and so easy and quick it's hard to dislike. i think i might add some balsamic next time, but other than that wouldn't change anything."

nice and flavorful, not too heavy or greasy. i'd definitely make this again, although even with all that roasted garlic i didn't get a lot of garlic flavor in the meat. i think next time i'll stick a few pieces of cloves in the meat itself instead of just rubbing. i used dried herbs like many other people who commented.

Great, easy, slow-cooker soup. I used half as many pork ribs and wish I'd had more. They were delicious. It was a little spicy for my toddler son, but nice and meaty for the adults.

this was great - even my 3-year-old liked it. not too spicy at all. i left out the scallions and added broccoli, and also used sesame oil since i already had it. very easy to make...i'll definitely do this again for a quick, healthy, weeknight meal.

in case anyone's as dumb as me and thinks it's a good idea to use MORE of the neely's yummy bbq sauce, don't do it! too much sauce makes it too moist and gives it a squishy texture, no matter how long you cook it. i've made this before (according to the recipe) and it was delish.

I make this flank steak marinade all the time. It's super-simple (especially if you have a lemon/lime hand juicer) and doesn't need to marinate for too long to pick up the flavor. I usually marinate for a few hours.
