Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
I thought this was excellent. As others have said the sauce was outstanding over rice. I did make one significant change. Since I did not have soy sauce in the house, I used Teriyaki sauce. It was still excellent, except that next time I would use less brown sugar to cut down on the sweetness. I also added onions and about 30 minutes before the end I tossed in some green peppers. Both the onion and green pepper added more interest to the rice. Thanks for the recipe.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
This recipe was excellent. I doubled it for a 9X11 size. The only thing I changed was to add some corn syrup to the frosting. I probably doubled the liquid portion of the frosting to get an acceptable consistency. I know the recipe says not to overcook, and I cannot stress that enough. I agree with another person who suggested 25 minutes was long enough. And, yes I did mix it by hand. I decided I was a little out-of-shape, but it came together fine. I do want to try the lowfat version that another reviewer suggested. Guests loved the original, however.

Lemon Lush

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I thought it was great, especially on a hot day. The only changes I made, per other suggestions, was to add 1/2 chopped walnuts to the crust, 2 T. fresh squeezed lemon juice to the cream cheese layer, and substituted about 1/4 cup of the milk with 1/4 cup fresh squeeze lemon juice. I think the tartness made the day feel a bit cooler.Oh, I also used whole milk rather than the low fat milk that I normally use. I thought this would make it richer. Guests loved the final result.

Triple-Chocolate Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
I think they are absolutely delicious, easy to do and the fact that it requires no baking is a plus. I'm anxious to try other combinations, and I may try a suggestion one reviewer made to change the ratio a bit of cookie to pudding. They would make a wonderful addition to a party buffet.

Tortellini Bacon Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2012
This is awesome, and it's always nice to have a recipe that can be made a day ahead. The only thing I did that wasn't in the recipe was that I steamed the broccoli for 30-60 second to set the color to a beautiful green and to make it less tough to the bite. Also, this will serve many more than 10 people. I served it as a side to 20 people and still had lots left. However, it keeps well and we still enjoyed it later.

Homemade Twinkies® Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
These were outstanding. I made them as cupcakes, taking a wedge out from the top, enlarging the hole a bit and filled it with the filling. I then sliced a bit off the bottom of the section of the top I removed. This made it fit back into the hole better. To make the cupcake more attractive, I made a cream cheese frosting flavored with lemon for the top.

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
This is an outstanding recipe. I made it as stated except I followed others suggestion and filled the paper liner 1/2 full before adding the cream cheese. Doing this ensured that you didn't see any of the cream cheese surprise on top. Although the cupcake was absolutely delicious at this point, for appearance I added a cream cheese frosting on top.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This is an easy and outstanding recipe. I was looking for a recipe that didn't have soup, sour cream or cream cheese in it. I did cut down on the amount of butter and olive oil used as suggested by others, and I used fresh green beans, since that's what we prefer. In the afternoon, I steamed the beans for about four minutes to set the color, and then followed the recipes directions for assembly. Then I set it all aside, keeping it all in the sauce pan. At dinner, I simply reheated and finished cooking the beans, cutting down on fiddling around at the last minute. It was a wonderful addition to a beef tenderloin dinner.

Noreen's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
One of the things that makes this recipe special is thickening the broth. It makes a nice consistency, and the soup is so thick, it's more like a stew than a soup.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
These are fantastic. One of the things that makes them nice is that you can make any amount you wish in minutes. (If you are dieting, you don't need to have a lot of leftovers to temp you.) We are going to a play this evening with friends. One of the attendee is fixing dinner and asked me to bring dessert. Since most people do not want dessert immediately after dinner. I fixed a bag of rolos, giving me 59 pieces. I divided them into six decorative boxes and will wrap with ribbon. Each person will have his/her own box, and thus, can have a dessert right after dinner, during intermission at the play or tomorrow. I did something similar last month with different candies, and it was a big hit.

Double Chocolate Cookies with Cranberries

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
This is an outstanding recipe. Following other reviews, I did use 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar, and because I used all butter, I chilled the dough for an hour. I also added dried cranberries, which is a great combination with the chocolate. Also, I was careful to underbake them (about 8 minutes) to keep them soft. After 3 days, the cookies remain soft, even the chocolate chips. If you happen to overbake an item, you can put it/them in a plastic bag and add a slice of bread. I usually place the bread on a piece of wax paper so it doesn't sit directly on the item. If it physically touches the item, the item will get very soft and a bit mushy. Thanks for the great recipe. Everyone loved them.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This is a wonderful casserole. I served it New Years Day, and everyone loved it. I think it's great as it is. However, I can see where it can easily accommodate additional ingredients. I will try adding onions and red and/or green peppers next time. Thanks for submitting this recipe.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
This is an absolutely outstanding recipe. It makes 12 muffins perfectly, and this is a nice easy way to serve them to guests. I agree with a former person that they are great with butter and honey. I am serving them this evening with a soup and salad for a nice comfort meal.
