Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
I didn't like the flavor at all. I honestly think that by sprinkling worcestershire over a hamburger while it is cooking will give you the same flavor, maybe better.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Excellent recipe! Next time I will double the pepper (used coarse pepper) and slice the tomatoes 1/4 inch instead of 1/2 inch. I used bags for the flour and cornmeal mixture. I found floating the slices in the egg mixture and then gently turning them over works better than trying to dunk them. If you like yours more crispy try first sprinkling them with salt and wrapping them up in a paper towel for 15 minutes... it leaches off a lot of moisture.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
I'm sorry, but this was nothing special to me. I think an onion, garlic and maybe a stalk of celery would have been a better choice for flavor. The Root Beer gave it an off flavor that the BBQ sauce had to cover up. Keep in mind I'm not talking about a strong flavor, just a slight flavor of what I consider an off taste. I doubt if you will ever find someone identify a root beer taste unless you tell them beforehand. Those that have smoked meat often will probably be puzzled why this flavor is desirable. I suspect to those that don't eat a lot of smoked meat, this gives them some sort of hint of a smoky flavor. Another mentioned using Dr. Pepper, and I suspect that might be a better choice. As far as some claiming the meat was dry, that is fixed with a simple solution that every competitor in a smoke-off contest uses. Right after cooking, wrap the meat (with juices) in aluminum foil tightly and then wrap it in a blanket, and let it set for one hour. The juices are pulled back in the meat as it cools "SLOWLY." In my case, it was as simple as reducing the Crockpot to "warm" (I have 3 settings high, low and warm) the last hour, and leave it to cool with the Crockpot turned off for an hour. It was really juicy. Only after this point to you discard the remaining juice. As one person said, it stinks while cooking. This was the reason I cooked on the patio and after getting a whiff when opening the Crockpot, I would say they are right. I probably cooked it about 8 hours in all.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I'm sorry, but I didn't like it. Too oniony and lacks flavor. However, lack of milk was interesting enough to give it a try. BTW, for those first making scalloped potatoes don't rely on the time or precise measurement of the sauce for thickness. Use your own common sense... if it looks like it is too thick to fill the crevices between layers of potatoes, it won't. And once determined, "thin" it out... water, milk, whatever, but don't hope that pudding mess will find its way in the nooks and crannies of potatoes layers. Paste is only good spread between layers and not top down.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This is an excellent Apple pie for purists. It's American as Mom's Apple Pie (without the cinnamon roll).
