Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2014
Made some slight changes as per suggestions from others plus past personal experience. Combine sliced apples w cinnamon & white sugar in a separate bowl. I also added a pinch of nutmeg and a dash of vanilla. Let this sit a while to draw out some of the liquid (finished product will not be too dry this way). Combine remaining dry ingredients plus butter in another bowl. This facilitates construction since the unique aspect of this recipe is the inclusion of the topping on the bottom as well. The outcome was easily one of the Best Crisps i ever made or enjoyed!

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
Delicious! I made some slight alterations: i used soy milk, butter, & an 8" round pan. It needs longer than 30 minutes to bake, though. Result is tasty. Next time, i will take other reviewer 's advice and dust berries lightly in flour because they did sink. Otherwise, a good outcome!

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
Don't add salt! Also, you can skip browning bacon & just put pan under broiler after cooking. Otherwise, adhered to recipe. Result: absolutely delicious!

Pork Chop Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
Great soup! I used leftover pork bones and fatty skin as well as a chicken carcass, which made a rich broth. I lacked broccoli, so just omitted it. Added whole unpeeled small red potatoes instead of chopped large white potatoes. This was a most excellent soup, and improves overnight. Highly recommend this recipe for using leftover meat bits that will yield a multi-layered flavor palate!

Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
After checking with other reviewers, I also added more cornstarch as well as nutmeg and cinnamon. The cooked filling makes this pie absolutely perfect in apple-texture. However, i suggest raising oven temp to at least 425F for 15 minutes at either beginning or end of baking so that pie shell attains proper texture. MMMMMMMmmmmmmmMMMMMM

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
Some reviewers are confusing pork tenderloin with loin of pork. A tenderloin is small, up to 2 lbs. The loin is approximately 4 lbs. This makes a Huge difference! The tenderloin by definition is more tender! I found that the 4+ lb loin of pork i used required longer than 100 minutes so i increased the cooking time to 120 minutes. I also agree with other reviewers who suggested browning the loin prior to baking. However, if the loin has been marinated i don't think browning is necessary.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
A hit! Cutlets came out juicy and savory. I did not cut into medallions but left cutlets whole--did not pound them out either. Would make again. Finished product is a nice hotel pan of lemony chicken cutlets with a light crust. Serve with Italian or French bread!

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
Make this as directed. I did not find it excessively lemony, as some reviews suggested. I sprinkled paprika over the top as well as the 1/4 C olive oil. Serve with flatbread! Great!

Traditional Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
Make this just like it directs! I thought it would be too lemony, based on reviews, but if anything, i could have added a touch more lemon! In all, a fine basic recipe. I sprinkled some paprika over the top, in addition to the final 1/4 cup of olive oil. Serve with flatbread--enjoy!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2013
I listened to a few of the other reviewers and made some changes. I soaked the rings in buttermilk for an hour first. Then, i added spices like garlic and old bay to the flour mix. I didn't want to use any egg, so i substituted a teaspoon of baking soda mixed in with some water and vinegar--this lets batter rise without egg. It is important to let the battered pieces rest on a rack for a bit prior to frying. I used a regular pan with oil. These are some Killer Rings now!!

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2013
Do Not use the 1/2 cup of butter the author suggests--it's about twice the amount necessary! Also, Do add the vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg suggested by reviewers, otherwise, the batter will be tasteless. I found that cooking til toothpick comes out clean is Too Long for a cobbler. Also, the 9x13 pan is a bit large but some people found that the 8x8 is too small. I will try a 9x9 next time. More batter would fix the Large Pan problem.

Sunday's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
Necessary alterations: Mix 2 tsp lemon juice with sliced apples. Also, increase sugar to 1 cup with addition of 1/2 cup brown sugar to original 1/2 cup of sugar, and decrease cinnamon to 1 1/2 tsp while adding 1/8 tsp nutmeg. Add 1 tsp vanilla and sprinkle corn starch into apple, flour and spice mixture. Voila!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
I thought the flour would be too much (3 cups) but it was fine. Be sure to use all the juice and add enough water to make 1 1/3 cups of liquid as per recipe. However, even after letting cake cool for 30 min. rather than the recipe's 5 (as per other's suggestions), the toppings stuck to bottom of pan. Perhaps i will butter the pan even more heavily next time; don't know why else it would have stuck like that. Tastes good, though!!

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
The peanuts should have been pre-toasted prior to their addition to the sauce. This dish did not live up to my expectations and we certainly will look for an alternative recipe!

Never Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
These were great! I made some changes, though: (1) Reduce sugar to 1 cup; (2) reduce salt to 1/2 teaspoon; (3) Add 1 tablespoon almond extract; (4) I used chopped baker's semi sweet chocolate in lieu of chips. Excellent flavor!!

Bacon-Flavored Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
The dogs luv these! I had only 5 Tb bacon grease so i substituted 5 Tb grapeseed oil for the rest. I also substituted yogurt for the milk and water. Next time, i might try what another reviewer suggested--eliminating the eggs and milk and using baking powder instead.
