Slow Cooker German-Style Pork Roast with Sauerkraut and Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
Great recipe! I added a little brown sugar and a dash of cider vinegar as the comments said and it came out AMAZING. I cooked the potatoes separate since I didn't have enough room in my crock pot. I took mine out after 6.5 hours and it was perfect, if I'd waited 8 hrs it may have fallen apart too much. I think it depends on the cut of meat probably.

New York Italian Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This was absolutely impossible to deal with and stretch out on a pizza pan. I just ended up with a sticky mess even after adding a lot more flour. Then it puffed up way too much in the oven and wasn't thin crust at all. Such good ratings on this recipe... I followed it to a t so I'm not sure what went wrong.

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Fantastic! I used low fat mayo, swapped out 1/2 cup of wholemeal self-rising flour and added a dollop of honey to the batter and it was awesome. Very versatile.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
This was inedibly sweet and not "buttercreamy" at all. I followed the recipe exactly. It tasted like pure sugar. It was so overpowering I had to add way more butter and milk just to cut some of the sweetness. It also started going goopy after about a half hour so I had to refrigerate the cupcakes. I doubled this recipe based on the reviews, and it was twice as much as I needed for 14 cupcakes. I think it'd be more than enough as is. This was a really disappointing recipe - maybe others like tons of super-sweet icing, but I was hoping for something more buttercreamy.

Cheesy Bacon Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Good but it's missing something. They came out dry and flaky, definitely biscuit texture, not a muffin. Will try adding onions next time. I followed others suggestions and lowered the sugar amt... won't do that next time. They really lack flavor. Also, cooked at 180C, it only took 15 min and nearly burned. The cooking time was way off, at least using my oven.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Spectactular! I added a handful of shredded coconut, a splash of vanilla, 2 tbs of raspberry jam, and some lemon. The texture was perfect. I can't believe how versatile this recipe is. I actually used 1.5c all purpose flour, and .5c self-rising flour because I ran out. They came out fluffy and nice. I'll probably keep doing that. This will be the only muffin recipe I'll ever need.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Great recipe, great flavor. I live in Australia where I haven't found any good American style ranch dressing, so I'm very glad I can make it myself now! I added 1/2 cup of milk to make the consistency more like dressing and less like dip. I also added a little bit more salt and a dash of lemon juice, just according to my personal tastes. So happy I found this!!

Dad's Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Flavor is good, but these cookies were an epic fail for me otherwise. I followed the recipe exactly, even adding 1/4c more flour like some commenters suggested, and ended up with completely flat browned but mushy cookies after 10 minutes. They taste great but you can't pick them up off the plate. I'm not sure what went wrong but they didn't stay puffy, and need way more dry ingredients to hold it together.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
Texture came out perfect, but it was a bit too sweet for my taste. I only used 1.5c of chocolate chips and that was plenty. I may try this recipe again with less sugar. The sweetness gets toned down a bit the next day, I realized, and the texture stays really nice.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
Amazingly good. I don't have a grill, or lime juice... so I used lemon juice and my broiler. Wasn't crispy like it'd be on the grill, but the flavor was out of this world. Thank you so so much!

Jamaican Beef Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Nice recipe! I made it a bit healthier by adding mixed veggies (carrots, corn, peas), and using store bought low fat pie crust. I also added some more spices, and I think this recipe is really adaptable depending on taste. It came out fantastically.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Came out great! I scaled the recipe down to serve 10 and it was enough for one large pizza.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Awesome! I made these as cupcakes and I doctored it a bit (I always doctor everything), and used 1.5 tsp of vanilla, and 1.5 tsp of rum, and chocolate chips. It gave it a nice depth of flavor. I didn't even need icing at all. Next time I want to try adding coconut, too. This recipe is so flexible, you can do a lot to it. Thank you!

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
There wasn't nearly enough liquid and it took about twice the time listed to cook. I ended up having to add another half cup of water to the rice, at least. I guess it depends on how liquidy your salsa is. The end result was just okay.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
1.5 cups of chicken is not enough to fill 6 tortillas. I had to double the amount of chicken AND left out adding the milk and it still wasn't right. It came out a soupy mess without enough substance to it. I also had to add a bunch of spices because otherwise it just tasted like salty condensed soup. I'm not sure how it got so many good reviews.

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
I needed to add an extra egg or else the mixture wouldn't even hold together. It wasn't that strongly flavored, either, so I added some Italian herbs. Otherwise it tasted like Worcestershire sauce and that's it. I had to do a lot of doctoring to get it to work and even then it was very "eh".

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
I tried to make these as muffins since other reviewers said that worked. The flavor is fantastic but they're VERY crumbly.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
The taste was great but the dough was very tough to roll thin. Not sure how to fix that or whether that's how it is supposed to be. The end result was thick noodles, but they were delicious.

Lemon Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Great recipe. I added a bit of vanilla. I had cooked it at 175C (I'm in Australia), and it took pretty much exactly 60 minutes. It came out a bit crumbly but not dry. Fantastic flavor. Also, DEFINITELY cover the top with foil for 1/2 (if not more) of the baking time or the top will get too brown. I followed that tip from the other reviewers and it came out fine.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
Used the dough cycle and then took it out and baked it. It's a little dense, but not unpleasantly so. Very delicious, excellent flavor.
