Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2003
This was a nice change from the same ol' pork chops. Plus it was great not having to use the oven. I did have to add more chicken broth as it cooked down, but that was the only change. It's a good choice for a low-carb diet, and if you wanted to, you could reduce the carbs even further by using onion powder instead of onions.

Chocolate Glaze II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2003
This stuff is great, a perfect topper for a chocolate bundt cake! As another reviewer mentioned, an extra tablespoon of butter made it even better. But the best thing about this is that no cooking is required! (Because it's not cooked, by the way, real vanilla extract is better than imitation in this recipe--not so chemical-tasting.) For those of you who found it a bit stiff, it may be that the butter wasn't quite soft enough. A few seconds on low in the microwave should fix that.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
Mmm ... good. My husband made this for dinner tonight, changing only the quantity of water. (He used less 'cause he doesn't like soupy beans.) Oh, and he didn't know we had ham, so he only used the ham hocks. Still, this was deee-lish. I actually had seconds, which I hardly ever do. Oh, and you have to cook them longer than 2 1/2 hours. Just test them every half hour or so after that, and throw the ham in when they're about done. BTW, if you cook dried beans to death and they are still gritty or mealy, it's because they're too old; even dried beans don't last forever. They have a moisture content that lessens with age. No recipe can make old beans taste good.

Slow Cooker Kielbasa Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2003
I never would have thought of combining all these foods, but yum! I will do a few things differently next time, though: I'll put the potatoes closer to the bottom so they all get done at the same time. Also, I'll put the meat closer to the top so it doesn't get quite as done. And I may use a little less liquid. NOTE: For those who are worried about a too-strong sauerkraut taste, use Frank's Bavarian kraut. It's milder and a bit sweeter than regular kraut.

Baja Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2003
Very good. We had them with lettuce because I didn't have cabbage on hand. Also I used a bit less cilantro than called for. The only thing I would add is that the fish tends to stick to the pan when cooked this way. Next time I will coat it first or grill it or something first.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2003
Wow! This was great. The muenster cheese added just the right note of pungency. And actually, this does reheat just fine; you just have to stir a bit of milk in because macaroni has a tendency to dry out. Also, for the BEST macaroni, use the jumbo macaroni, not the regular size. I don't know why that makes a difference, but it does.

Bierrocks III

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
These were great! I made the dough in my bread machine using a slightly sweet roll recipe. For the sausage, I used RB Rice medium. Can't beat RB Rice!! And to make this easier, I used bagged coleslaw. DEFINITELY a time saver. I believe I used quite a bit more than 5 cups, too. Turned out great!!

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
Yum! I grated the apple 'cause I didn't want a strong apple taste, just the moistness that comes from the apple. Also, I didn't realize before I started that I was out of nutmeg, so I just left it out. It still turned out great. I bet it's even better with the nutmeg.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
Very, very good. I also used the whole box of spinach. For those of you who tried onion soup & didn't like it, try leek. It's milder. Knorr's makes it, and it's usually in the same place where you find onion soup, ramen, etc.

Gelatin-Flavored Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2002
Wow! This stuff is great. I too cut down the butter, though not QUITE by half. (Instead of 1 cup, I used 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp.) So far I've done watermelon, cran-raspberry, apple, berry blue, and cherry. I have a question for all you more experienced candy makers out there, though. How the heck do I get it to hardball stage without scorching the sugar on the bottom?

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
We thought these were great. It's not the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I'll use, but when you want a "big, fat, chewy cookie," this is awesome. For the cookies to stay chewy, they need to be left on the cookie sheet until cool. (Except, of course, for the few you just can't resist eating right out of the oven.) Also, the butter MUST be melted, and the flour should be all-purpose UNsifted. 10/17/04: I notice that some people have mentioned that this is a cakey cookie. I did not find that at all, and I HATE cakey cookies. My suggestions to avoid cakiness are: use real butter, be sure to melt the butter, don't overbeat your eggs, and do NOT skip the extra egg yolk.

Well, I'd rather have chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, but for a bran muffin, this one's very tasty.

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
Yum! Just like when I was a kid. I did add just a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors a bit more.

Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
Yum! This was really tasty. We've tried with frozen AND fresh cauliflower; it works both ways. The only reason it didn't get five stars: too high a fat and calorie content to eat this regularly. But it sure is tasty. Also, we accidentally reversed the amounts of red pepper flakes and salt, putting in a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of red pepper flakes, and we really liked it that way!

Italian Style Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2002
This was pretty yummy; the only caveat is that mine took a bit longer to get done ... I think because I used very lean ground beef, which made a dense loaf. Sure was tasty, though.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2002
Both my husband and I thought these were good taken on their own merits, but they're not the yeast kind. I'll keep the recipe for those times when we want something quick, though.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2002
I did not actually make this recipe, but I used the chocolate icing from it in something else. If you're looking for a great chocolate icing, you can't do better.
