Apple and Spice Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2012
I thought this was very easy and very tasty! I usually put it in the crock pot and just let it cook. My son is not fond of all the cloves but I love it and I always double the sauce. Great recipe and great comfort food! I usually serve with a side of rice pilaf!

Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
This was absolutely the best turkey I have ever had! It will definitely be my holiday turkey recipe from now on. My son loves it so much we make it once or twice a month. It it extremely easy and so tender. I didn't even need cranberry. I did make some adjustments to it though. I brined the turkey the night before (rub with salt and place in water overnight in the fridge). I also used pink champagne which gave it a wonderfully sweet taste. I didn't have oranges so I squirted the inside with lemon juice for the citrus taste and added chopped carrots and apples in the cavity. The apples absorbed the wonderful champagne flavor! So good! The gravy is fantastic! I also cooked it in the roaster oven (15-17 per pound) so that the house wouldn't get hot and left the oven free for other things. I would like to add that I do not like champagne as a drink because of the flavor and I still LOVED this!

This is a good quick soup. I doubled the recipe and added 1 tbls chinese five spice. I also added two packs of ramen noodles. These additions made it a more filling tasty soup! Great base!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This was excellent! I am very particular with ground beef and this was definitely a crowd pleaser. I followed the recipe as written but browned the meat, celery, onion and chopped garlic together instead of powder. Then removed the meat and made the sauce. I didn't have tomato soup so I used tomato sauce. I used all of the ingredients and added 2 drops of liquid smoke and a dash (1/4 c) of BBQ sauce as suggested in another review. I simmered 5 minutes then added meat mixture back and served. Excellent!

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I have never made fondant before and was very hesitant because everyone I know said that fondant tastes awful and they usually peel it off before they tast the cake. This recipe said it tastes just like frosting so I tried it and it does. It tastes just like buttercream frosting! Great! It is a little bit greasy but very easy to work with. I added food coloring after I made the primary batch. I have already recommended this recipe and will continue to make it in the future. Great recipe!

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I think this is a good soup. I did make some additions though. I used 4 potatoes and 6 cups water. I used 2 chicken bouillon cubes. I also added 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp pepper, and 2 tsp nutmeg. It gave it a little more flavor and it wasn't very watery this way. I would have to say a very good recipe.
