Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
I've had some cans of apple filling for a while and was craving apple crisp. I didn't have any oatmeal so I tried this recipe and made it *exactly* as written. I'm extremely disappointed and the only way I think it could be made better is to not bother wasting perfectly good apple filling on it at all.

Father-in-Law's Scallops with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I made this recipe as written, but it just wasn't good. Quite bland and just blah. The sauce was barely enough for one serving, so I would definitely recommend doubling or tripling the sauce portion of the recipe.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
This soup turned out wonderful with a couple of changes... Therefore, I'm only giving it 4 stars. Instead of the water/broth mix, I used all broth. Also, I substituted a can of cream of celery soup instead of the evaporated milk, since it's what I had. Gave it a little more creamy texture and flavor than I think it would have had otherwise. I see a lot of complaints about it being too thin... If that's the case, once it's done take a cup or two out and blend it in the blender. Pour it back into the soup and it will help thicken it up.

White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
This fruit tart is by far the BEST on the planet. I have made several times, using different fruits depending on the season and what's available. I am now begged to make one for every pot-luck that comes along!

Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
I did a couple of things differently... I used bowtie pasta and cooked in chicken broth to give it that extra chickeny flavor. I added about a tsp of garlic powder. Once I mixed it all up, I put it in a 350 degree oven for about 20 mins to really blend the flavors together. Great recipe and oh-so-easy to make!

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I don't usually rate anything as "perfect", but in this case I must. I've made this soup many, many times and it always comes out awesome. The only things I do differently is I use fresh parsley instead of the cilantro, and leave out the tarragon.

Twice-Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
These totally ROCKED!! The only things I did differently was I used 1/2 green peppers and 1/2 red peppers, and added a couple of cloves of minced garlic. Will definitely make again! Thanks for a great recipe! :-)

Navy Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
I used this recipe mostly as a base. I had some bacon i needed to use, and a little bit of andouille sausage, so I tossed it all in too. I didn't use the mashed potato flakes, and it was still yummy stuff.

Pork Chops & Stuffing Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
With a little help, this can be a great recipe. Before making the stuffing, I sauteed 1-1/2 stalks of diced celery, 1/2 a medium-sized onion (diced) in 2 tbl. butter. I also added 1 tsp sage, and 1/2 tsp thyme before I added the water and butter to the stuffing cubes. Needed a little longer than 30 mins to bake, but turned out pretty good.

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
I tried to prepare the recipe as written, however followed other reviewers suggestions and only used 2 cubes of bouillon. I sauted the onions for a few minutes after I browned the pork chops, and left them in the bottom of the pan. I used 1 tsp. of black pepper, and almost double the amount of cheese. I only had about 1/2 an onion, so I added a tsp of onion powder to the cheese mixture. The potatoes needed a little longer to cook than stated, but the pork chops came out VERY moist and tender! It is refreshing to see a pork chop recipe that doesn't include cream soups and tastes as delicious as this one. I will definitely make this again, and can't wait to try it with lots of onions!

Broccoli Beef II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
If I make this again, I will double the marinade as there just wasn't enough to properly cover the meat. Like other reviewers, I did not discard the marinade since the meat had soaked up almost all of it anyway. I was very disappointed that the finished dish was extremely bland and had very little flavor. If I make this again, I will also double up on the spices, and add some szechwan sauce to the marinade. I am rating this 2 stars... One for being simple and easy to prepare, and one for being somewhat of a healthy dish.

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
This recipe was pretty good, however I did change a couple of things. I added about 1/2 tsp of cayenne, and 1 tsp of minced garlic (I put garlic in *everything* lol) to "kick up" the flavor a little. I also used 1/2 the amount of bread crumbs. Definitely will make this again. Thanks!
