Pulled Pork Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
Delicious! I used a 3lb pork shoulder plus a pork tenderloin. I also added about 2 tsp of cumin and a doubled the chili powder to increase the heat a bit. I cooked this in the slow cooker for about 6 hours and it was perfect.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
My dog is alergic to wheat so I ground some oatmeal in the blender to make oat flour instead. Also doubled the pumpkin and PB as per other reviews. My dog loves 'em. Thanks

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
These were the best stuffed peppers I have ever had! The addition of the feta cheese is amazing!! I did add ground beef to the mixture by browning it first, draining and then adding all of the other ingredients as instructed. I will try the vegetarian option as well as I'm sure it will be just as yummy!

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
Everyone LOVED this salad! I actually wanted more of an avocado salad, so I reduced the black beans to one can and increased the avocados to four. Very refreshing at a summer BBQ. Thanks

Classic Stuffed Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I am only reviewing the stuffing - I brined my turkey and prepared in my usual way. I stuffed the turkey with this stuffing and baked the extra in a casserole dish. The stuffing is perfectly delicious and will now (dare I say) replace Grandma's old savory plain stuffing. I love the addition of the mushrooms and I am NOT a mushroom fan. I chopped the mushrooms to make them less noticable. Everyone loved this stuffing both the "turkey stuffing" and the casserole were gone - I could have easily doubled this recipe to allow for leftovers - it really is THAT good!

Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Beware of these cookies - they disappear fast!! I made these as a treat for my husband; snickerdoodles are his favorite but not a cookie I've made often. I should start by saying I am an avid baker and my various cookies are requested often by friends and family. Since I didn't have a "go-to" recipe for snickerdoodles, I decided to search here and settled on this one after reading the positive reviews. I did make some modifications: I needed to use up some butter-flavor shortening so I subbed that for the regular shortening, I took the advice of one reviewer, who like me prefers soft cookies, and eliminated the cream of tartar completely. I did only make half a batch since it was just my husband and I. Well, let me say this - the first dozen was completely gone before the second batch was even out of the oven!! These are soft with a slight crunch to the edge, not too sweet, delicious for dunking in coffee/tea; really the perfect grown-up cookie and the kids will like them too! As far as some of the complaints/concerns regarding this recipe go let me make these suggestions: 1. ALWAYS use light colored cookie sheets - I like the "air-bake". They will always give you great results for evenly baked cookies, no more burnt bottoms! 2. 400F is WAY to high a temp for cookies; reduce to 375F and bake these for about 8-9 minutes for perfect results. 3. Do not let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for more than a minute, cool them on a wire rack - if they last that long!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Fresh or frozen blueberries both work excellent in this recipe. I've mostly used frozen wild blueberries with about 5 tbsp of cornstarch and the thickness and texture are perfect. Absolutely delicious with a flaky latice-top pie crust.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
This was fantastic. Like other reviewers, I added a bit of minced garlic (1 clove) when adding the mushrooms. I omitted the sherry (didn't have any) and increased the marsala to 3/4 cup, and added 1/4 cup chicken broth. I also thickened the sauce using about 1/4 cup cream with about a tbstp of cornstarch. Excellent!

Sweet and Sour Chicken III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
Yummy and quick and easy to put together!! I followed another reviewers advice cooked the chicken in the hot oil with garlic and some fresh ginger just to brown. Removed the chicken and added the peppers and onion (also with garlic and fresh ginger);when tender, added the chicken back in with the pineapple. For the sauce, I doubled the vinegar and brown sugar. This recipe was excellent! Everyone loved it and thought it was restaurant quality. A great weeknight meal!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This is absolutely delicious! Definitely the best bread pudding I've ever had. I used half&half instead of the milk, and used 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar. Served with rum sauce...yummy! Can't wait to have an excuse to make this again! Will definitely become a "go-to" dessert recipe. Thanks

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
These are excellent, moist bran muffins. I substituted applesauce for the oil and you'd never know there was "fat" missing from this recipe. Absolutely delish!

Grilled Sausages with Caramelized Onions and Apples

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
This was so tasty. I was looking for a quick supper and a little something different...did a search for sausages (because that's what I had out of the freezer) and what a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed this recipe and will make again often. A perfect little weeknight fall supper.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
This is a fantastic recipe. I did make a few changes to suit my tastes: I like a meatier lasagna, so added 1 lb of ground italien sausage. Also used real minced garlic instead of garlic powder and added about a tbsp of italien seasoning to the sauce. Took another reviewers advice and used 1 1/2 cups white wine and only one cup water. Always use ricotta instead of cottage cheese. No cook lasagna noodles will work just fine for this recipe with the extra 1/2 cup of liquid. This got RAVE reviews including "this is the best lasagna I've ever eaten..." SD

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This was a lovely and colorful side dish at my recent dinner party (main entree was prosciutto wrapped chicken breasts). I added a clove of garlic, minced, with the onion and used black pepper because I didn't have any white on hand.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I add about a tsp of garlic to the beef mixture; for the sauce, I increase the brown sugar to 1/4 cup, double the worcestershire and add a heaping tsp of red pepper flakes for a sweet sauce with a bit of a kick. I always cook these in the oven: 350 for an hour covered with foil, then remove the foil and continue for about 20-30 minutes....perfect every time

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breasts with Herbed Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would! Oh My Goodness - this is divine!! Any soooo easy to do. I subbed feta for the goat cheese, and green onions for the shallots. With or without dates, it's excellent so don't make a special trip to the store if you don't have them. I made this ahead of time in the morning, refrigerated it for the day and then cooked it at 400 for about 20-25 minutes (using very large chicken breasts). The chicken was juicy and tender, and the prosciutto was nice and crispy. Perfect for an elegant dinner party. I served it with mashed sweet potatoes and buttered green beans...but this would go nicely with any side. I will definitely be making this again.

Bermuda Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
The dressing for this salad is amazing! and the combo of bacon and mushrooms with the spinach (and I added baby greens as well) is perfect. I left out the egg just because I'm not a fan of egg in salads but overall this is a delicious recipe and will be a favorite in our house. Everyone loved it including the 2 teenagers!
