Coriander and Cumin Rubbed Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 18, 2015
I like a little coriander, but this recipe calls for A LOT of coriander, and it turns out I don't like it THAT much. So the second time I made this I substituted equal parts garam masala and curry powder for the coriander, and it was absolutely wonderful. Can't wait to make it again.

One-Skillet Italian Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2015
The great thing about this recipe is how easy it is and how little mess is generates. Brown your meat, toss in the other ingredients, and simmer for 10-15 minutes (mine was done a bit early). Done! It's not my favorite, but it'll probably make its way into my rotation just because it's so simple to make when I'm tired and don't feel like cooking. I used Prego spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce and it worked great.

Rhubarb-Raspberry Crunch

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
This is quite good! 1) This should be for a 9x9 pan. It already seemed a little thin in the square pan, I can't imagine trying to stretch it out to a 9x13. 2) Way too much sugar and butter! I don't usually shy away from sweet and buttery, but even cutting back to 3/4 c. sugar and 1/3 c. butter, it was too much. Next time I'll try 1/2 c. sugar and 1/4 c. butter. Other than that, the flavors here are superb. I didn't have tapioca so I subbed another tablespoon of cornstarch--probably not necessary, it was super thick. I might try adding a little cinnamon to the topping next time.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
I made this recipe as written, and it came out delicious but a bit on the sweet side (and I am not a person who frequently complains of things being oversweet). I think all that brown sugar is the culprit--next time I will try reducing to 3/4 c.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
This has quickly become a staple meal for me. I love it because it's something you can throw together at the last minute. I love adding a little grated parmesan and dried parsley to the cracker mixture, and per other reviewers I bake covered for 25 minutes, then uncovered for the remaining 20. If I have extra crumbs, I add those on when I uncover the dish--this, along with the uncovered baking, helps alleviate any sogginess. I also use only teeny tiny slivers of butter--you definitely don't need nearly as much as the recipe calls for.

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Yeah, okay, I had to bake this for an hour. But who cares? The taste is AMAZING. Instead of raisins, I added 1/2 c. chocolate chips, resulting in some pretty awesome chocolate chip walnut banana pumpkin bread--pretty much all the best quick breads in one. Somehow I ended up with more batter than would fit in a single 9x5 loaf pan though, so I filled up a few muffin cups with the leftovers. I baked the muffins for 40 minutes and they still came out a little overdone. The bread is definitely the winner here.
