Onion Soup Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I may have done something horribly wrong here, but my pork chops didn't wow me like other recipes I've tried on this site have. They were okay, but turned out kind of dry and just not as favorful as I had thought. Definitely an okay recipe if you just have some pork chops laying around that you want to use, but nothing to say "wow" at...

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
yum yum yum. Another hit with my hubby. I made these originally to take to a meeting but we ended up buying cookies on the way because my husband wanted to keep them all for himself. I didn't have any bittersweet chocolate, so I used semi-sweet and just cut back the sugar a bit. I also substituted applesauce for ALL of the oil and it turned out just fine. Next time, I want to try throwing a banana into the mix. A definite winner!

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This is a winner! Easy, inexpensive, and YUUUUUMMY!! I accidentally bought bone-in pork chops, and they worked just fine. I used Jack Daniels BBQ sauce and an imported beer (something like "Spaten"??) my husband likes. My husband HATES pork chops, and made sure that I noticed that he was picking every piece of meat off of the bone because, "Heather - they're THAT good. This recipe is a KEEPER in our relationship." HA! Mine only had to simmer for about 45 minutes, but I also was only cooking 2 chops, and they were fairly thin. I'm eager to try this recipe again when we have company - SO EASY - just brown the chops, dump in the liquids and seasoning, then let it simmer! GREAT with wild rice, veggies, and rolls!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
It's taken me a few tries to get it just right, but the persistence in these muffins was WELL worth it. I have never seen my husband smile that big over a muffin. I use whole-wheat flour and half brown/half white sugar for the muffins. I also use applesauce instead of oil for health benefits, plus it turns out a bit more moist!! I have usually used Craisins instead of blueberries (because fresh berries are NOT cheap in the winter!) but today at our discount fruit stand they had raspberries... WOW!!!!! :) We are thrilled with this recipe, and they turn out "pretty as a picture." The only problem I still run into is getting that topping "just right"... but it's still yummy!! Update: I went to my parent's house this weekend and made these muffins with regular flour and oil (as opposed to applesauce)and I can tell you from that that you should definitely use whole wheat flour for the flour and applesauce for the oil - they are SO much better that way! Just goes to prove that healthier doesn't always mean tasteless! Also, we have decided that a combination of fresh raspberries and blueberries are the best combination in these muffins! Happy experimenting!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
WOW. I am NOT a good cook, but I was THUROUGHLY impressed with this recipe and how it turned out. My husband usually compliments me on my cooking (no matter how bad it is) but with this recipe, he wouldn't stop saying how much he loved it. I was a bit concerned when it seemed the cinnabons didn't rise too much after I rolled them out and spread the cinnamon sugar, but I was thrilled when I opened the oven 15 minutes later and my apartment smelled just like the cinnabon store at the mall! :) We've decided to make this a traditional "special occasion" breakfast, and my husband says, "Isn't EVERY day a special occasion??" THANKS FOR THIS RECIPE! Gooey-ness note: The one issue I have had with this recipe is that the rolls toward the center of the pan never seem to bake very well, resulting in OVERLY gooey cinnamon rolls which I don't mind, but some of my guests have not been thrilled with. To combat this problem (and still get delightful results) I now divide the rolls into enough pans so that there is space around each roll so that the oven air gets around every roll and everything is more evenly baked. It doesn't look as pretty coming out of the oven, but they are more satisfactory to my dough-hating friends. :)
