Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
Probably one of the best pork roast I've ever made. I took a glass baking dish about the size of my roast and spead the dry ingredients in there. I added way more than called for because I like my roast to be crusted on the outside, not burned. I also added garlic salt. Then I rolled my roast in the seasonings. No need to add oil to the roast before coating. I placed the roast in one of those large black roasting pans with a cake rack on the bottom so it would not sit in it's drippings. No need to cover it with foil. I cooked mine for 2 hours & 45 minutes at 325 degrees and it did not burn. I also used a meat thermometer. Definately double the sauce. I combined all my ingredients except for the cornstarch and got it warm first. Then I had a whisk on hand when I added the cornstarch slowly so it wouldn't clump up. If your sauce gets too thick just add a little more vinegar. At 2 1/2 hours I took the roast out and drizzled about 1/2 cup of sauce over the roast. I did not brush it because I didn't want to rub off my seasonings. I put it back in the oven for another 15 minutes and it was perfect. I will use this sauce with other meals. It reminded me of the Chinese BBQ sauce on hula beef.

Beef Tenderloin with Ginger-Shiitake Brown Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
I didn't have mirin or sake. I opted for red wine as a substitue for mirin and omitted the sake and it was still great and full of flavor. Will make again.

My Best Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
I used a 2 lbs. brisket & cut the recipe in half. I marinaded the brisket for 2 days. I then put the brisket & marinade in the crock pot on high for 3 hours. I sliced the brisket thin & put in back in the crockpot so it wouldn't dry out. I accidently added a tbsp of garlic instead of horseradish. After I realized my mistake I added a tbsp of horseradish and it tasted terrific. I didn't have any leftovers & I will be making this again.

Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

Surprisingly good and easy to make. I just used canned chicken and in addition to using the chili powder I used half a packet of taco bell taco seasoning.

Collins Goulash

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
I followed the other suggestions and added onion and mushrooms. Browned them in a couple tsps of butter. Added a can of cream of mushroom w/a can of milk and cream cheese. I ended up using some frozen meatballs I had in the freezer and added some worshershier sauce. This is a keeper but I don't think it would have been good w/o the onion & mushrooms.

Beefy Cheesy Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
WOW! Better than I thought it would turn out. I made this recipe just how it was written out. It was very hard not to follow suggestions but I wanted to make this because of the ingredients. I usually have these items on hand and I have to say it was real good. I was most skeptical about the cheese slices but glad I stuck to the recipe. I hope it taste just as good for lunch tomorrow.

Chocolate Covered Caramels

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This was excellent but I think my candy thermometer is off because I cooked it too long. I have an electric stove and cooked it at 4.5 heat and 20 minutes would have been long enough to have a soft carmel. Mine turned out too firm like a slo poke lollipop but still good. I nuked each piece in the microwave and it tasted great. I also put the chips in the middle as suggested to save time. I will probably skip that next time made a horrible mess.

Cafeteria Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
If you want creamy mac & cheese skip this recipe. This was a sticky mac & cheese the kind you need a knife to cut and it keeps it shape of a square when you take it out of the baking dish. I will not make this again.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This salad didn't take much time to prepare and turned out way better than I was expecting. My only regret is having it sit in my recipe box for about a year before trying it.

Steak Tip Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
The ingredients sounded so good but it was so bad. I will not make this again. And I don't know how this happened but the meat was dry after cooking all day in a crock-pot.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This turkey turned out very moist with good flavor. I followed the recipe and did not add water or butter. The gravy from this was good too-no need to add salt. My husband wants me to make this turkey for Thanksgiving. I will be making this again.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I made two deviled egg recipes from this site today. Both were good but this one took 2nd place to Bacon and Cheddar Deviled Eggs by American Egg Board which I gave 5 stars. This is a real good traditional deviled egg I would just add less salt next time.

Colossal Caramel Apple Trifle

This was good. I followed the advice of others by adding 5 cups of milk & it was not enough. If I make it again I want more pudding.

Orange Tapioca Salad

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
My daughter raved about this salad she had at a friend's house. I tried it and really liked it. I also made one using strawberry jello and strawberries. The orange one was better. I suggest using the whole 20 oz can of crushed pineapple and using the juice from the cans in place of water. I think I will try the strawberry one again using cheesecake pudding.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
This is the first beef chili I've ever made that turned out fantastic. I've tried chili before in the past to only have to throw out the whole batch, a waste of time and money. I highly recommend this and tweak it to your liking.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
This is a great recipe if you have a meat slicer. First i select a combination of spices that I like and spread them in a cake pan the size of the roast. I then roll my roast in the spices. This evenly coats the whole roast and doesn't waste a lot of spices. I set a baking rack inside my roasting pan and follow the directions. This makes an excellent roast beef sandwich.

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
This was pretty good. I made extra noodles and had most of the ingredients on hand so I made this and served in over lettuce. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to make it unless I had extra noodles again.
