Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
I made this recipe about a month ago and had my doubts about it because of the water chestnuts and the mayo, but it turned out very good. My husband loved it. I made this as a side dish because we wanted grilled chicken that night so no chicken was added, and the celery and mushrooms were increased. I cut the mayo to 1/2 cup and changed the soup to low-fat/low sodium cream of mushroom. The water chestnuts gave it a perfect crunch and it was a great way to use up leftover rice from the day before. I would make this again.

Stuffed Pork Chops III

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I made this tonight and my husband and 8 yr old daughter, who is very picky, loved it. I did make some changes. I used Italian seasoned bread crumbs and added chopped mushrooms and oregano to the stuffing. I didn't use the salt or sugar in the stuffing, and I didn't need the extra butter or the beef broth because I grilled my chops. I rubbed some garlic, oregano, paprika, black pepper and salt on the chops before I grilled them. I seared the chops on high heat and then slow-grilled them on indirect low heat for about 40 minutes. Here's a tip that was given to me by a friend that makes keeping the stuffing inside the chops much easier. Cut a slit about 1.5 inches through the fat side of your chop. Then open up the inside of the chop using a fan-motion w/ your knife. You'll still have the small opening but will have a nice pocket opened up inside. Fill with the stuffing. Cut some lemon wedges slightly larger than the opening in the chop and squeeze the juice out-I used the juice in a pitcher of iced tea. Pop the lemon wedge into the opening in your chop with the rind facing out. Your stuffing won't fall out and no need for toothpicks!

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I gave this recipe three stars because I had such trouble with the biscotti being crumbly but not because of the taste. They smelled and tasted wonderful. I drizzled a little melted chocolate on them, and my husband loved them, but he also thought that they were too crumbly. I wasn't able to use these biscotti for my cookie swap as I had planned because they were so crumbly and just didn't present very well.

Green Bean Casserole IV

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I made this recipe to bring to my sister's house for Christmas dinner this week. Everyone loved it and asked me to make it again for next year. I changed a couple of things: I decreased the sugar by half and also decreased the onion by about a third. I added some ground black pepper, a little garlic, and I used Stove Top stuffing instead of homemade. I might try homemade stuffing next year. I used frozen green beans that I thawed and drained. I didn't find them to be too crunchy at all, but I hate canned vegetables so maybe that's why.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
It was tough to rate this one. My husband absolutely loved it and gave it a 5. I thought it was just Ok and would have given it a 2 because I thought it was just way too sweet and also thought the filling was too runny. I did like the topping though. I am going to try this again but with some flour mixed in with the filling and also with less sugar in the filling. I think it's a matter of personal taste and since my husband loved it, and he's the apple crumb expert in the family I gave it a 4.

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
"This is wonderful." That was my husband's response after trying this. I did make a couple of changes. I increased the ingredients by 1/2 as was suggested in some of the other reviews. I also divided the sugar into 1/2 brown and 1/2 white. The only other change I made was I mixed a little bit of ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and vanilla with the apples before putting them in the baking dish. The result was a sweet, crunchy topping with not-too-sweet apples beneath. I served it warm with vanilla ice cream.

Slow Cooker Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
I took the advice of the previous reviewers and did the following: dipped the pork chops in egg batter and then in flour and browned in a small amount of butter. Then I seasoned them very well with garlic, black pepper, and seasoned salt. I placed unpeeled, sliced red potatoes in the bottom of the slow cooker and put the chops on top. Then I poured the soup into the skillet and added milk instead of water. I scraped up all of the browned bits in the skillet with the soup and milk in it, and after covering the chops with sliced onion I poured the soup mixture on top. I didn't add green beans to the cooker but instead steamed them and served them on the side. My daughter, who isn't crazy about any kind of meat, loved the chops. My husband liked them too. They were very tender but didn't fall apart...maybe because of the egg and flour coating? On busy school nights it's a perfect quick meal.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
Wonderful, banana flavor and very moist. The second time I made this I substituted 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the all-purpose flour and added some vanilla extract. It didn't last one day before it was gone.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
Delicious pancakes. I made them with my 7 year old daughter and she and my husband loved them. I wrapped the leftovers in packages of 2 and then froze them for a quick breakfast for my daughter on busy school mornings. They freeze really well.

Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
I increased the ingredient amounts and made this to bring to a birthday party that had 40 guests. There were many compliments on it. I made it the night before and saved some of the dressing to add the morning of-because the pasta tends to soak up a lot of it overnight. I added black olives and celery and substituted red bell pepper for the green. I also shredded/grated the carrot instead of slicing it. It was very good. There was none left by the end of the day.

Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
Very good. My husband loved it. I served it with carrots and potatoes. I had the chili sauce but didn't have any onion soup mix so in a pinch, I substituted brown gravy mix and added my own sliced onions. The beef was very tender and the gravy was delicious. Because I used the brown gravy mix, I didn't have to thicken the sauce. It did that on it's own. This one's a keeper.
