Honey-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2015
I've made this several times now and it is so yummy. Like many other reviews, I've doubled the honey/sugar. I ran out of time last night and did it a little differently. I sprinkled salt, pepper and smoked paprika on both sides of the chops and cooked them in a skillet with a bit of canola oil on the stove (med low for about 25 minutes) vs in the oven. When there was no pink left in them, I did the honey and sugar. The smoked paprika added a new twist to it and it was super yum too! Thanks for a great recipe. :)

Ribboned Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2014
You won't be sorry if you try this recipe. It is AMAZING! I first made it because during my pregnancy, I was craving chocolate. This is the only thing that curbed it. I did follow a fellow reviewers advice: I added 2-3 TBS cocoa and subbed chilled, strong coffee to the cake batter. I also used a double batch of "Satiny Chocolate Glaze" and it is HEAVENLY! I used Baking Pam for the pan and won't make that mistake again - it did not turn loose from the pan well. I've since made it several more times; greasing and flouring the bundt pan and it turns out beautifully. I've made it for a ladies function and for a friends bridal shower and have had several requests for the recipe. I only wish I could say it was mine!

Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I made this and everyone liked it.. It was a bit salty & greasy for our tastes though. I used what I had on hand: I had a 7 oz package of pepperoni I used. I didn't have olives or mushrooms. I added 1/2 C onion and 1/4 bell pepper to the beef as it cooked & used Rotini noodles. I didn't have enough Mozerella cheese so subbed some Cheddar too. Overall a very good basic recipe. I think the big difference for next time will be to layer half the mixture in the dish, spread a layer of pepperoni, the rest of the mixture and pepperoni across the top. That should help with the salty & greasy-ness.

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
This was so easy and turned out great! I only had four apples to use up, so I used maybe 2 Tbs less sugar than called for. I didn't have ground cloves or walnuts but it still turned out great and plenty sweet. Perfect with vanilla ice cream! Will definitely make again.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I was searching for the amazing mac & cheese recipe I made a few weeks ago that I didn't save! Boo. :( This, unfortunately, wasn't it. I made this exactly to recipe and although it was pretty good and really cheesy, I probably won't make it again. It had an odd texture. The only thing I can figure is that it was the bread crumbs. That didn't appeal to me. Thanks for sharing.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
This is my "go-to" recipe for chicken pot pie. It is so good! It makes two pies which is even better! Double meal!! I cook one and freeze the second for later. I buy two deep dish pie shells and make an easy pie crust for the tops. **Pie crust for tops: 2 1/4 flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 C shortening (I use Crisco), 5-7 Tbs ice cold water -- Pastry blend flour, salt & shortening. Add water until it sticks together. This makes the perfect amount to top two deep dish pie crusts!

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
These were so easy to make and SO yummy! I followed the recipe exactly. However, I layered wax paper in my cookie sheet (first, sprinkle a little water or spray the pan with Pam so the wax paper doesn't move around when spreading the mixture) before spreading the yummy mixture to cool. After they cooled, I lifted out the wax paper filled with yumminess and it was super easy to cut and transfer to a pretty serving platter! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
This was really yummy! I used ricotta because lots of people said they did (I usually make a recipe exactly and tweak it the second time). It turned out really well but I think next time I'll do the cottage cheese. The ricotta was difficult to spread evenly. I did do tablespoon dollops all over and then spread it out, that helped some. ;) I think next time, I'll try 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 mozzarella too. Overall, this is a definite make again recipe!

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I made 2 batches. I'm not sure what I did differently (if anything!) but they turned out so different. One was thin and kinda chewy and the second was fluffy and kinda crisp. Both were really good. I would definitely make them again.

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
My husband is not a broccoli fan, so I used a 10 oz pack of frozen spinach instead. I had pancake mix instead of biscuit mix. It turned out really yummy. It was a little sweet because of the pancake mix, but still good. I definitely want to try it again using the biscuit mix (and broccoli. Ssh.. maybe he won't notice.)

Broccoli Cheese Soup VII

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This turned out SO good! I used 2 heads of fresh broccoli vs the frozen, 1 large chicken bouillon cube (what I had on hand) and a 1lb block of Velveeta. It didn't need any salt or pepper. It was perfect! I cut the broccoli up in little pieces, covered it with water and boiled it for about 10 minutes. I reserved 2 C of the broccoli water after cooking, in case I needed to thin the soup. Didn't use any of it. I think next time, I'll actually take more of the water out. It was a little runny but still tasted great!

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
My mini muffin pan is in storage (in process of moving) so I made these in a regular size muffin tin. The yield was 12. These were SO yummy! I will definitely make them again and next time I'll also double the recipe. :)

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
The only change I made was I substituted 1 can of pinto beans for the chili beans, and only because I didn't have chili beans! I salted & peppered the beef while cooking and used about a third of the taco seasoning on the meat. Next time I won't do that because I couldn't drain the meat without losing the seasoning. :( This taco soup was SO good! We sprinkled cheese on top and ate it with tortilla chips. :) I will definitely make it again!

Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
These were super good! I drizzled choclolate & caramel syrup over the top. I made a second batch and made them in mini muffin cups instead of big ones. I cut each individual cookie into thirds and used 1/3 of a cookie in each muffin liner. I cooked them until they were just starting to spread across the bottom. Then I used a small cookie scoop to portion the cheesecake mixture. ( I made these several weeks ago - I think the muffin liners were about 2/3 full. I think I used the same bake time as well. ) The mini cheesecakes turned out just as nice as the big ones! I like the small ones better actually. :) For mini cheesecakes my yield was 36 minis.

Jasmine's Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I didn't see that the water was supposed to boil and then add the sprouts. So my boil time was off. They definitely needed to cook the whole ten minutes. The flavors were good. I will definitely use this recipe again ( and cook the whole time ;) ).

Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I made this last night and it was super yummy! I thought for sure when I poured the cheese mixture over it, that it would be too runny. It thickened up very nicely! Since I used shells instead of elbows, I just stirred the macaroni to make sure the insides of the shells had cheese in them too.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
AWESOME! I made this for my Mom's birthday and everyone LOVED it! So moist and yummy! It made 24 cupcakes and 2 - 8 inch layers for a cake too! I may cut the recipe in half next time, but it was excellent! Thanks for sharing a great recipe. :)

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
My first time making CFS and it was great! When my husband walked in from outside, the smell brought back happy childhood memories of his grandma's cooking! I will definitely make this again! Even the gravy turned out well -- and I've never had good luck with gravy! :) Happy cooking....
