Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
This was a good recipe after some modifications, first off the consistency was very very watery, next time I will drain the zucchini first. Because it was so watery, I used bread crumbs to help it along I tested one pattie before cooking the others and like other reviewers said it was bland so I added additional salt, black pepper, fresh garlic and some chipotle pepper for an additional little kick. They were much better.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Got great reviews on this recipe , made it for 30 people, no leftovers. I will say that I went to my butcher for a trimmed chuck roast. ( I needed 8 lbs )I seared ALL sides with a generous amount of salt pepper and garlic powder . After many hours on the slow cooker ( 12 for this size ) I placed most of the sauce in a container in the freezer to skim off the fat , if you get the chuck roast that is alot of fat. So this is a must in the taste. There was not one person who did not compliment me this holiday weekend, and there were lots of cooks, this recipe stood out. BTW it took an hour to shred the beef and get rid of lots of fat in the chuck roast but it did not shrink much as I anticipated in the slow cooker.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
This recipe is fantastic. I did follow the review from MaryKlaire and added one more cup of zucchini, and I did NOT drain the zucchini. It did take 70 minutes on 325 F. I made one loaf with the crumb topping from MaryKlaire and one without . The crumb recipe , I did not add as much sugar. For one loaf I used 1/4 c. This is a MUST TRY RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I made some changes, I used ground beef and sausage, I also used the creamy tomato soup in the sauce as well as the gravy on top ( Which it needed lots of) I added onion and garlic cooked seperately and rice also cooked alone and tasted the mix before placed inside the peppers. I made adjustments at this point, ( more salt pepper, a touch of red pepper flakes) If the mix tastes good go ahead. This is when I added the Creamy tomato soup. Both to the mix and on top of the peppers. The important part to this recipe is to only boil the peppers 5 minutes or else it will break apart if overcooked. Also once the cheese is on , undo the foil for 10 minutes prior to eating it. Otherwise this recipe was awesome.

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This was just OK. I might make again but it certainly is not something that people will rave over.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
I would rate this 3.5 if I could. I definately suggest the chicken broth and cook the contents until it has a syrup texture. I might make this again and add a little brown sugar perhaps to cut the bitterness or a bay leaf to cut the acid. I also used a very good balsamic vinegar , and served with rice.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
WOW!!!! Good bye Swiss Miss, and HELLO to this recipe. I did follow some advise. I did cut the sugar to a little less than 1/2 cup and I used Ghiardelli unsweetened cocoa. Once you try Ghiardelli, its tough to use anything else, I even use it for my Brownie mix. I doubt I will ever buy packets again. Thanks for this fabulous recipe!!!!

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Not as yummy, it tasted like a pork chop salad, I actually gave it 2 stars because it was something different and edible, however this recipe is not for my tastebuds, nor that of the 4 other people that tried this in my household. Sorry.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
WOW WOW WOW This was fantastic, once I followed the most suggested of reviews, I used 3/4 cup oil, and 1/2 c. applesauce, Increased the amounts of vanilla and cinnamon by one tsp.I also used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white. For the frosting, 3c. of powdered sugar was fine for my liking. I tested this recipe today to make for Easter and I am SURE that it will be a hit. Oh, also I used 2-9inch cake rounds and the cake was done in just under 40 minutes ( about 37 )

Pennsylvania Coal Region Barbecue

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This is a great alternative to purchasing those overpriced sloppy joe packets, especially when most households have most of these ingredients in the house anyway. I did add more brown sugar, and ketchup. The good thing about this recipe is that you can add more ingredients if needed once you taste it, and customize it. I think I have seen the last time that I purchase the packets, Thanks!!

Artichoke Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I followed the advice from other users, I used 2 12oz jars of marinated artichokes which was a great idea for 2 reasons , 2 -oz jars would have NOT been enough and unmarinated would have made it very bland, HOWEVER the marinade also gave it a slight bitter taste. I cut down on the bread crumb and added 3 tbsp of milk to the egg mixture. It was good, but not great. I would love to hear from others for ways to cut down on the bitterness. Oh, I also sauted 1/2 of an oniom along with the garlic and added pepper to the egg batter.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
I purchased a slow cooker for this recipe and I am glad that I did , This was very good, however I did use a pork loin and I thing that after adding the BBQ sauce it was very mushy, Taste was excellent, texture was not, next time I will try a different cut of pork.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Very good for first attempt at split pea soup. I will definately do this again. The only difference is that I added one bay leaf as I normally do with all my soups, and used college inn chicken broth instead of water.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I have to say this recipe was very good. I made a 4 lb meatloaf and there were no leftovers ( 5 people ). I did follow a few suggestions from other reviewers. I used the 2 complete packs of onion soup mix I did not sift out the powder but remember I made 4 lbs so with this much meat it was not salty at all. I definately lined the pan with bread. It made clean up quick and easy. I also used the glaze of ketchup, honey and wostershire which was a perfect glaze to this meatloaf. Next time I make this recipe, I will use 1 less egg. I found the mixture way too soft and had to add more ritz crackers. Everyone loved this recipe and I WILL do this again. Thanks for this great recipe.
