Spicy Italian Pork Cutlets

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
This is quick, easy and delish! Thanks for a tasty low-carb dinner. Didn't have quite enough of the topping, so I would probably double that next time. I used Sake for the white wine and I didn't pound my chops. I seared them about 3 mins on each side and then simmered in the sauce for about 5 minutes. They were perfect. I only used a small pinch of red pepper flakes and it gave just a hint of a bite - which was nice for us.

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
Love, love, love this! Thanks for the delicious recipe. The only thing I will change next time is to reduce the sugar to 1/2 tablespoon. It was a little on the sweet side for me, but most everything is anyway. My husband thought it was perfect! This will be in my fridge always now! I'll never buy Italian dressing again! Thanks so much!

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
Delicious! I gave it 4 stars because I think sauteing the garlic first would be better. It was still a bit raw. I used olive oil instead of butter and 1/2 cup wine (Sake) like others suggested. I wrapped in foil as directed and cooked in the oven at 425 for 20 mins as suggested by other reviewers. It was cooked perfectly (except for the garlic). thanks for the wonderful recipe - I'll definitely be making it again :)

Grilled Mongolian Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
I really wanted to like this, but it wasn't for us. The flavors didn't work well and the mustard sauce was just too over powering - even in a small amount.

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Loved these! I made them as stated in the recipe, but I did lower the cooking temp to 325 degrees F. I like my cupcakes flatter and lowering the temp gives them the nice flat top I like. I topped them with lemon curb and a homemade marshmallow meringue topping. They are so delicious and just melt in the mouth! Tastes like a lemon meringue pie! Thanks, Marianne!!

Rice and Beef Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
Thank you for a delicious and versatile recipe. I did make some changes to suit our tastes. I used 1 cup of regular long grain rice. I sauteed it in 3 tbsps butter until lightly toasted and then added 2 cups water. Brought that to a boil; reduced heat; covered and let simmer for 15 mins until water was absorbed. I then added salt to taste and 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley. While the rice was simmering, I browned the meat. I halved the recipe because I was only feeding 2. I used 1/2 lb Johnsonville Sweet Italian Sausage. Browned that and then added 1/2 of a chopped onion with 1 teaspoon of minced garlic. Finished cooking the meat with the veges and then added the chopped tomato pulp and some salt to taste. Scraped all the bits off the bottom of the pan and gave it a taste. I added a tbsp of chopped fresh basil and I omitted the tomato sauce. It was juicy enough for me with the tomato pulp and everything tasted so fresh and yummy. I added 2 cups rice and stirred it all together and then filled the tomatoes. I only used 4 tomatoes. Cooked for 20 mins and then topped each tomato with a slice of asiago cheese. Melted the cheese and served with the rest of the rice. It was absolutely delicious. I ate one and my husband ate 3!! and he finished off the leftover filling!! Definitely a keeper. I will make this whenever I can find good tomatoes on sale. Thanks so much!

Portobello Mushroom Burger With Bruschetta Topping

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
This is delicious. I made it exactly as stated in the recipe. I feel like the horseradish cheddar was the wrong cheese for this. I love horseradish, but the flavors didn't work for me. I think asiago or mozzarella would be much better for this and will use that next time. I also think it would be much better without the bun. Just serve the mushroom filled with the delicious tomato basil salad and top with a delicious Italian cheese pair it with a side salad. Yummmmm My husband said he would like it much better with a 1/4lb burger under the mushroom and all the goodies haha

Italian Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
Thank you for a wonderful recipe. I halved the sausage and used 1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil in place of the dried. We loved it! Economical, delicious, and quick to make! Thanks Johnsonville!

Best Baked French Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
The sugar releases the starch (liquid) in the potatoes and then you drain it off and dry them well. When you place them on the baking sheet be sure you place them in a single layer with space around each fry to aid in getting them crispy. The liquid will cause the potatoes to steam which makes them soggy when baked, so if you remove it first then you get a crispier fry. Also, using a lower in starch potato such as red potatoes or Yukon Golds are a better choice than Idaho for crispier fries. Keep in mind the bake time will vary depending on how thick or thin you cut the potatoes.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
Easy and yummy. I used fresh potatoes and 1/2 the cheese as suggested by Baking Nana. Thanks for a tasty recipe. Next time I will use less sausage too - the sausage overpowered a bit for us. These are great reheated!

Bowties with Italian Sausage in a Cream Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
We liked this, but I wish I had halved the sausage. The flavor is a bit overwhelming for our tastes. The fresh basil really makes this.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Lemon Zest Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
Thank you for the yummy recipe! I am used to baking cupcakes at a little higher temp. I like the results of a lower temp. The tops are flat instead of a rounded dome. These really melt in your mouth and the puree inside is a nice little surprise! Thanks again!

Cilantro and Pork Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
Thank you for a delicious recipe! We really enjoyed this. I added salt and pepper to the marinade and used the lime juice to deglaze the pan before adding the onions and peppers. Definitely use pork tenderloin as suggested in this recipe. It is so tender and delicious. A cheaper cut won't do this recipe justice. Cooking time for the pork will vary depending on how thin you slice it. Mine only took about 2-3 each side.

Pineapple Upside-Down Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Love these! Thank you for sharing this healthy and delicious muffin recipe. What a great way to get some carrots into the kids too! They'll never know they are in there! I opted out of the walnuts and raisins, but made them as directed otherwise. Mine were done at 15 mins, so I recommend checking them at that time. I could not find a 10 ounce can of sliced pineapple, so I used (2) 8 oz cans which worked out for me because I was able to get 14 muffins out of this recipe. Thanks again!

Caramel Cream Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
The cookie part is 5 stars for sure! Love the flavor and texture. The filling is a bit sweet for us, so I have to make some adjustments to that the next time I make these. Thanks for a yummy recipe.

Grandma's Chicken 'n Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
This recipe was just okay for us. I made the recipe as stated best I could, but I would caution on using that much butter in the stuffing. I think you can get away with 1/2 that amount. 1/2 cup would be more than enough. A full cup was way too buttery! When I made the sauce I did not use 5 cups of milk either as I knew that would not fit into a 9x13 dish. I made 1/2 the recipe called for and still couldn't fit it all in the dish. I also added peas for veges. The flavor was just okay, but I do think it would be a hit with kids maybe. I think some fresh sage would help it be less bland. I'm sorry it wasn't for us.

Grands!® Cheesy Herb Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
This was quite tasty and it cooked up just right in 35 minutes. Very easy to make! I made this recipe exactly as stated, but I can think of many combos of cheese and herbs that would be just as good! I look forward to trying Pillsbury's sweet version for monkey bread!
