Cranberry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Excellent recipe. I had to admit that I had my doubts about adding mustard to cranberry sauce, but I was pleasantly surprized. My husband and eldest son both flipped for this recipe, asking for seconds. I ended up fishing out the chops, and just dumping the water-cornstarch mixture into the hot cranberry sauce, and cooked it on HIGH for another ten minutes. I also pieced up the chops and redeposited it back into the sauce and served it gravy-style over rice. If I were to make this again, and I likely will, due to the reaction of my family, I will use boneless pork chops.

Banana Chai Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
Great recipe. What I did was reduced the baking powder to a teaspoon, added more banana, and upped the chai. I took the advice of some of the other posters and when I added the chai, I warmed my pre-packaged chai and added three chai teabags to strengthen the chai taste. Interesting recipe, but surprizingly wonderful. I recieved many complements on this recipe.

Slow-Cooked Steak Fajitas

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
Great recipe. The only change I made was adding the juice of one lime. Our family ate the whole crockpot full. No leftovers. This is going in my current rotation! EDITED 08/18/08: I made this again today filling the whole crockpot. I added an extra onion and and extra pepper. (And those peppers were HUGE. I remember last time that I doubled the spices, I just might do that again. I also used garlic powder and worchestershire sauce. My house smells SO good. I plan on shredding some pepperjack to go with it and making homemade refried beans.

Dutch Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
Way good. I changed up the recipe, adding cinnamon to the crumb topping, and cinnamon AND nutmeg to the apples. Instead of dicing the apples, I cut them into thin pieces. I also drizzled the top of the hot pie with caramel sauce. Great recipe.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Great recipe! All those who recommended cooking the cookies for 7 minutes were dead on. Perfect time. This is the first snickerdoodle recipe I've made that hasn't spread. The shortening/butter mixture was perfect. I double coated my cookies in the cinnamon-sugar mixture for extra flavor.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
This recipe was easy to put together, and the taste of the cookies was fabulous. The only thing I would add would be another 1/4 c. of flour, as these cookies spread more than I would have liked. I like a firmer cookie.

Soft Molasses Cookies V

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Good recipe. Really easy to make, and the dough was excellent for rolling balls. I think I might add more ginger next time, as I like a spicier cookie. Oh, and I added nutmeg to the cookie dough.

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Okay recipe. Would add more flour and extra vanilla if I made it again.

Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
I used this recipe to make Peppermint Blossoms with the new Candy Cane Kisses. REVISION: Now that I've made these a couple times and know the drill, I recommend that you unwrap and freeze the Candy Cane Kisses before you stick them on the cookies. This will make it harder for them to pool when you place them on top of the cookies. Turned out wonderful. I would make this again, and recommend to all my friends.

Excellent biscuit recipe. Really light and fluffy, and not overly rich. Fabulous.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
Great recipe. Like the other testers said, follow the recipe to a "t". I made this recipe with Kissables candy bits and chopped Hershey bars. My husband loved it.

Raspberry Peach Crumble

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
I used a half-can of whole berry cranberry sauce with the peaches and a tablespoon of flour. (Trying to use what I already had in the pantry.) Tasty. Even better with vanilla ice cream.

The best cream cheese frosting I've ever had. Easy to prepare, and my husband went insane over it. A++++++++!

'It's Da Bomb' Ranch Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
This is better if you use air popped popcorn. Also, cut back and use half a packet of ranch dressing and use pepper to season, too.

Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
I changed the recipe to suit my family. I used two boxes of Jiffy cornbread mix and added a cup of buttermilk. I also peppered the batter. I also greased the pan with bacon grease. Very good. We like this with chili or warmed the next day with eggs and bacon.

Cut-Out Cookies in a Flower Pot

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
Not only did this recipe taste wonderful, the cookies stood up to the kids' decorating fun. And, this recipe also divides fabulously. EDITED: This is our go-to decorating cookie. This is the dough I make for Bumpa to come over and bake cookies with the kids. They hold up well while rolling out/cutting, bake up beautifully and they hold icing well, if that makes sense. Plus, they taste FANTASTIC.

Tater Nuggets

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
This was inedible. I don't often say that, but it really was. I made it just like the recipe was written and the balls flattened and the cornflakes were just wrong. This was a waste of time and ingredients.

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
This recipe was loved by the whole family. I did salt/pepper, then sauteed the meat in garlic oil before adding to the crockpot. I also added worchestershire sauce and red pepper flake. When it came to serve, I added cornstarch dissolved in cold water to thicken it. Works both on rice and on hamburger buns. Easy recipe.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Really good frosting. Not too sweet. I halved the recipe and did half butter and half shortening. Came out perfectly and was super easy to spread. I paired this frosting with a dark chocolate cake I also found on this site.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Really decadent cake. Not too difficult. I made this cake in a 9x13 pan. It was hefty, but came out perfectly. I will say that it got better the next couple days as it added even more moisture. So. Good.
