Two Step Creamy Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
I was nervous about this one, thinking there was no way some cream cheese, sugar, and Cool Whip thrown together could taste all that great, but I was wrong. This is a great summer recipe, though I did as other reviewers recommended and halved the whipped topping. I also added a splash of vanilla.

Peach Pork Picante

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This has quickly turned into one of my favorite dinner recipes. The easy to delicious ratio is fantastic. I like a little less salsa and a little more peach flavor, so I use 2/3 c. salsa and 5 tablespoons peach preserves. I also like to add a chopped green pepper to the mix for some added flavor and healthfulness.

Cream Cheese Bars I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
This is a 4-star recipe when the bars are warm, and a 5-star when they're cold. DEFINITELY serve these straight from the fridge! I like using lemon cake mix best.

Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Fantastic! I used the filling to crust ratio as written and thought it was fine. I did reduce the sugar to 3/4 c., and added some cinnamon and vanilla to the crust for a little added flavor. Marvelous.

Almond Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
This is amazing! I only wish I'd had more rhubarb--I was only able to use 2 c. I adore the topping though, and will likely use this on other cakes and muffins as well. Following the advice of other reviews, I subbed applesauce for half the oil and left the nuts out of the batter. I also added a dash of cinnamon to the topping, to give it a little extra kick. Delicious! I'm tempted to eat it all myself. ;)

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
Best. Chicken recipe. Ever. I'm a poor grad student, so I used just about every cringe-worthy substitution you can imagine (cheap cooking wine, dried rosemary, fake syrup, margarine...), and this still turned out better than almost any other chicken recipe I've tried, and it's easy to boot. The glaze IS very thin--I've tried thickening it with corn starch with limited success--but the flavor is phenomenal.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
These are wonderful! I can hardly believe they were so easy. I substituted pumpkin pie spice for all the spices, added about 3/4 c. walnuts, and sprinkled brown sugar on top. Absolutely delectable.

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.
