Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Thanks for sharing this recipe! I followed the recipe as written, except used two coffee layers and one white. I made it a day ahead, always a bonus, and served it at a dinner party. I had many requests for the recipe, and several went back for seconds. Will definately make again and again!

Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
My family loved these pork chops! I doubled the sauce and served over rice. I also increased cooking time to 1 hr. 15 min. I'm not a big fan of bay leaves, so I omitted it. I will be making this again!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
This is the best recipe for Pumpkin Bread! I always make a double recipe to give as gifts. Buy the 29 oz. can and double all the other ingredients (using 2 bowls is easiest). I've tried it several different ways and this is my favorite: for a SINGLE recipe, use 2 c white sugar and 1 cup brown, 1/2 cup oil and 1 stick unsalted butter that has been melted and cooled. I tried it with vanilla extract but thought this made it too rich. Also, it will take more than an hour to cook. I rely on the toothpick test rather than time to determine doneness. But toward the end, watch it because the top will start to burn. Everyone loves this! Even my picky 1 year old gobbles it up!

Pork Chops in Beer

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
This is a simple and good weeknight dish. Made a few changes the 2nd time: I seasoned the chops good with garlic salt and pepper and then browned them. I used only half the beer, adding 8 oz. of water. I topped each chop with a thin slice of onion and then poured the liquid over the chops. I baked covered with foil for 50 minutes, uncovered them and baked 15 min. more. This made them more tender and juicy. I served over rice, but the next time, I'm going to add one cup of uncooked rice to the dish at the beginning. I think this will absorb some of the extra liquid. My family liked the taste of these pork chops.

Roasted Vegetable Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
I am giving this 5 stars because of it's simple goodness. This isn't a "fancy" meal, but it is oh so good. It was great to watch my family go back for seconds. Hubby requested that we have it every week! I would suggest seasoning vegetables well and using chicken broth in place of water. I also pricked the whole potatoes with a knife to allow flavors to flow through.

Texas Sheet Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I was disappointed in this cake. I followed the recipe as written, and it came out dry and bland. Thanks for sharing, but my family just didn't care for this.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
This recipe is really good. The second time I made it, I used half the amount of orange juice, and I preferred it this way. The entire amount of oj overpowered the sweet potatoes. You can make this a day ahead and refrigerate. Bring to room temp., heat covered for 30 min., uncover and add marshmallows and cook for 10 more minutes. When reheating leftovers, you also have to add fresh marshmallows. This is really a yummy recipe!

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I was disappointed in this pie. I followed the directions and my filling puffed up and became very crusty. As it began to brown to quickly, I tried to cover it with foil. It stuck to the foil and ended up very unattractive. The taste, however, was good. Maybe it would help to add the pecans on top of the filling. I don't think I'll be making this again.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
This recipe is so good and can easily be adapted to your own personal taste. I've used Rotel tomatoes w/chiles, drained, and this is really good. To save time, you can also make this "lasagna style". Cut your tortilla shells to fit the dish. Layer 1/3 of shells in the bottom of the dish. Add a layer of the chicken filling. Repeat, ending with 3rd layer of shells. Pour remaining sour cream mixture over this, and top with cheese. To serve, cut in squares like lasagna. My kids especially like this recipe!

Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
This is too good to be so simple! My family loved it! I didn't have mushrooms or water chestnuts, and it was great w/o them. I combined the celery with 1 tablespoon margarine and cooked it in the microwave for 1 minute because my family doesn't like the "crunch". They did, however, like the buttered cracker topping. I will be making this again. I can't wait to try it with the mushrooms!

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
This is great comfort food. Whole family ate it! I increased the amount of noodles. To prevent dryness, I added some of the liquid that I had cooked the noodles in to soup mixture. It was moist and tasty. It's even better as leftovers the next day!

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
I didn't care for the taste of the Italian dressing and soy sauce together, but I'm giving this 3 stars because my husband thought it was pretty good. Also, I baked it covered with foil for 1 hr., uncovered and baked another 15 minutes and I have to admit, these were extremely tender.

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
Used 2 eggs, omitted baking powder, and cut sugar by 1/4 cup as suggested. Happy with results! Other changes I'll make next time - cook 40 min. I took them out at 35 min. when toothpick came out clean and edges appeared to harden (they were still soft). Also, a little too salty. Will use unsalted butter or omit salt. Still, these were GREAT, and I will make again & again!!

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Absolutely the most moist & delicious pork roast ever! A few changes: I seasoned the roast well & then browned it. After putting roast in baking pan, I placed a sliced onion, sliced bell pepper, & 2 whole garlic cloves around it. I added 1/4 cup water, then put brown sugar & plain applesauce on roast. I sealed tightly with heavy foil & cooked 2 hours. The result was a flavorful, moist roast that I served with rice and the pan juice. The best!!!

Southern Style Beef Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
As a true southerner, I would suggest serving this with cornbread and a green salad. Delicious! Make sure you salt & pepper the meat well before browning. I also add a few shakes of seasoned salt when adding the tomatoes, Also, just because I like mine a little more soupy, I add some beef broth or water flavored with beef bouillon. As far as spicing it up,I put a bottle of tabasco pepper sauce on the table for those who like a little more kick. The tabasco flavor blends perfectly with this stew. This is the easiest way to please everyone without making it too spicy or too mild. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
Overall, easy and good. I thought 2 large onions would be too much, so I used 1 onion and 1 garlic clove. Also, left out the potatoes because I served with mashed potatoes (great gravy!) While baking, I left the dish covered for an hour; uncovered it and cooked 10 more minutes. Very tender this way!

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
I am not a bread baker, & had never made soda bread, but this recipe was so easy! I reduced the amount of caraway seeds & raisins to my taste, and I kind of just patted the dough down into the pan because it was too sticky to knead. But it came out beautifully. I can't wait to make some more to impress my friends! Just don't forget to use a pan with high sides as shown in the picture, or the dough will seep over the sides.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
I highly recommend this recipe for anyone who wants to prepare a "no frills" but great tasting meatloaf! I mostly followed the recipe as written, except I reduced the lemon juice added to the meat mixture to 2 tablespoons, and I used the onions, but chopped them finely. I found that it held together nicely when sliced, and my husband, who usually dislikes meatloaf, ate 2 helpings. (Kids loved it, too, but insisted that I make extra sauce next time to dip it in.)

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
I made this once as written. The celery was a little overpowering. I made it again, but used 1/2 c chopped onion, 1/2 c FINELY chopped green pepper, & 1/2 c FINELY chopped celery. I saved a step by cooking these with my ground beef. My kids enjoy these and don't realize they're getting their veggies! Also, these are even better heated up the next day after the flavors have blended.

Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
Love this! Only a few changes: Instead of plain sour cream, I whisked the sour cream together with 4 oz. french onion dip and omitted the onion flakes. I also added 2 tablespoons of melted margarine to the cornflakes. Had to increase cooking time to 1 hr, 10 min. (Before adding toppings, be sure to taste mixture and add salt & pepper as needed. It's better to season it before cooking rather than afterwards. If you wait, it'll taste bland.) Don't count on leftovers!
