Kool-Aid® Pie

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
This is slightly different from my childhood favorite, which was made with evaporated milk and frozen. This one is much easier (which earned the 5 stars) and could be so much fun in the various Kool-Aid flavors/colors.

Basil-Garlic Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
I marinated overnight and really enjoyed this, although it's difficult to keep the pork from getting a little tough. I wasn't sure about basil with pork, but was pleasantly surprised.

Warm Italiano Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
Very, very good. We used a little more pesto and baked it in the oven. The only drawback is once the pesto on top is eaten, you are left with a good bit of cream cheese. I think I will slice it, then top it so it goes down into the block.

Mulled Cranberry Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This is a great cold weather treat. I used blueberry honey because I had it on hand. After a few hours in the crockpot, the craisins were great. I will use a cheesecloth-type bag to hold the whole cloves when I make it again.

Cedar Planked Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
4.5 We aren't huge salmon fans, but are trying to eat more fish. This was a fun technique and it had excellent flavor that wasn't too fishy. I soaked the planks overnight in a 5 gallon bucket and defrosted the fish in the marinade overnight. My filets were thinner than pictured and probably could have spent less time of the grill. I will get thicker filets or leave them less time. We think some type of sauce/glaze would be really good. (2nd try and I changed my rating to 5. I used a thicker filet. It was incredible, although a light glaze will enhance it next time.)

Grilled Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
4.5 Stars: I cut a 2.5 lb pork loin roast into slices and marinated for 2 days. It was very good, but be careful with the cinnamon. We all agreed a touch more cinnamon would have ruined it.

Garlic-Herb Roast Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
The rub was very good. I used a 4.5 lb loin and it was ready within 1.5 hours. The second time I used a 2 lb (enough for 3-4 people) and it was delicious again. It was ready in an hour on 350 the whole time.

Sausage Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
These were good, but I will not use spicy sausage next time. We love spicy food, but it took over the dish.

German Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
4.5 Stars, only because I do not like all of it pureed. I will leave more chunks next time. I used 2 leeks instead of 1 cup and russet potatoes. I used 2 cans chicken broth and finished with water to 6 cups. I did not have a ham bone and used 2 TBS ham base and a sprinkling of dry thyme. I also used light cream to reduce calories. My daughter who thought she hates leeks ate it, then I told her it was leeks. She was surprised.

Hash Brown Casserole for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
3.5 Stars: Following reviews, I used French onion dip which worked great. I used the cream of mushroom with roasted garlic and that seemed to mess it up. I will make it again because it is easy and frees up the oven, but with regular cream of mushroom. I used cubed hash browns because it did not specify which kind. It was ready in 6 hours on low.

Annie's Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I halved the recipe and can't believe I have never made turkey salad. It's wonderful. I used sweet pickle relish. I did not have the dijon/mayo mix, so I used a bit of dijon, a bit of yellow mustard and the mayo. As the recipe says, letting it sit in the fridge does make it better.

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
This is a good, easy punch that, after four different recipes, my daughter has chosen to serve at her wedding.

Baked Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: May 20, 2010

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Mine did not get crispy, but they were delicious and a much healther way to prepare than the standard brown sugar and butter bake.

Grilled Chicken with Herbs

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
We were not impressed with this recipe; however, I did not completely ding it because I followed reviews and added the balsamic later in the marinating. I also did not have all of the parsley. I can say it drastically needs salt and pepper.

Chicken Cotija

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
4.5 Stars: This was different and very good. I served with the broken pasta found in the Hispanic section. My husband suggested a rice/pasta mix for a little more texture. All in all, a surprisingly good (and easy) dish.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I marinated tenderloins overnight in the apple juice. It was tasty and a good fall/winter recipe, but my husband did not care for the sweetness.

5 Minute Microwave Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
We found this edible and quick, but as a Southerner, it just wasn't good ole' cornbread. It is fine if served topped with chili, soup, etc. I used an 8x8 square pan and 3.5 minutes did the job. A smaller pan may yield better results.

Rasta Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
My entire family loved this. It did have a bit of spice and I will decrease the crushed pepper by half next time.

Easy Crispy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
I had to use panko instead of saltines, so I am not sure my rating is fair. It was good but DEFINITELY needed salt.
