Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
These are really good and moist as everyone promised - the hubby gobbled up a muffin and he's not even into baked goods (unless they are really moist - on the second muffin he actually said it was his favorite thing I've ever baked)! The muffin is really sweet (especially with the topping) - I will take it down to 1 cup of brown sugar next time (especially when apples are in season). Used honeycrisp apples. LDS girl was right - only half the topping is needed, I still had left over topping (and I even took a lot of it off since it was so sweet. Threw in a tsp of cinnamon into the batter and could see half a tsp of nutmeg or so really sealing the deal for the 'apple pie'ness. I got 12 perfect muffins out of this recipe! Also made buttermilk (never keep any on hand and didn't want to buy a whole thing for it) by putting 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and topping off with milk to make a cup, and letting that sit for 5-10 minutes.

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Braised Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
I was skeptical but the hubby and I LOVED it. It stinks b/c you need to be at home to toss/turn this - the hubby said it'd be a good 'football Sunday' meal (since he can get off the couch to turn it once every couple of hours). The sauce is incredible - could have drank it. Bought a no-sugar added apple juice.

Chocolate Clouds

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
Made this for the hubby's birthday with dark chocolate pudding. It was delicious. I wish there was more filling, but it worked out great. Really slaved trying to pipe these in - the filling didn't spread right and I'd get a corner with a ton of filling. To make the same amount of filling in each one and have it spread throughout I just opened each puff in half and spread it with an offset spatula. No bites without mousse! These are unbelievably easy and the hubby loved them.

Sweet Dijon Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
Loved this. Eased up a little on the apple cider vinegar (by 1/4) since others said this was too tangy, and added 2 good squeezes of honey (I don't use sugar substitute). Really delicious.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
Great way to use up flank steak - we froze it for 15-20 minutes to make it easier to slice. Didn't have time to marinade this but threw it into the slow cooker for 4 hours on low. Doubled the sauce (had a bigger flank steak) and use 1 tsp instead of a tbsp for crushed red pepper, then mixed the sauce after cooking with brown rice, and tossed it together with some quickly stir fried (in peanut and hot sesame oil) snow peas. I think the only thing needed is some stir fried onions for the hubby as well. Also went easy on the sugar - the hoisin was sweet enough.

Healthier Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
Used Barilla plus (I can't digest wheat pasta) but followed the recipe exactly else as written. Had a bite before baking and thought 'egh' and was a little worried but was able to adjust for seasonings then. After baking and taking the first bite, the husband and I groaned - it's so cheesy and good. After gobbling down his portion, the husband said 'This mac and cheese is RIDICULOUS'. Perfect accompaniment (and so easy to make) for ribs or burgers with a salad. No one cheese stands out, and the hubby was even a little skeptical 'Hmm, cottage cheese, huh?' but it all worked out. I thought it was a little dry, not sure what I'd do to make it a little saucier - maybe milk like others have said? I agree with the others - the topping is good but not needed.

Ultimate Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
Didn't make the steak following the recipe (threw it in the slow cooker b/c I didn't have time), but LOVED the parmesan aioli.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
This is so delicious and easy. We got so excited after tasting it with just the balsamic and olive oil that we forgot to add the basil and white pepper. I think the white pepper would be a nice addition. Lightly sauteed some chopped tomato and yellow onion (instead of the red) tossed it in as well. Loved it warm, would probably love it cold as well.

Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
Buttery, very easy and a nice side dish and as someone mentioned - goes great with chicken. Tastes a little artificial (used Goya bouillon).

Juicy Butt Steaks

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
Made this in the slow cooker (8 hours) and it didn't come out as tender as I had hoped (I was looking for the texture of pulled pork. But this is a great way to cook butt steaks that are on sale. I didn't love the flavor but that's just a personal thing.

Healthier Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
So I've made this 3 times within the last 3 weeks and have to say I loved this. I'm pregnant and need my fish! The husband says it's his favorite fish that I make, hands down. So quick to put together, and it's nice and light. Melted the butter by mistake and it was fine. Didn't have any mayo in the house (horror of horrors), and used lite ranch instead. Will try the mayo next time. Paired this with the Garlic Broccoli on this site wanted to serve this with Orzo and Rice but didn't have any orzo. Works perfectly on the top rung of the toaster oven!

Catfish Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
Pretty good but very crackery. As others mentioned, broke this up into bigger chunks and also dredged in flour before frying for crispier edges. Made this with homemade tartar sauce (from this site). Good stuff.

Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
The husband dubbed this 'instant classic' - it's so easy and it tastes great. Also didn't have Dijon honey mustard and used 2 tablespoons Dijon and 1 tablespoon of honey as others did and went easy on the salt since the soy sauce was already there. Perfectly sweet, perfectly savory. Served it with Grilled Sweet Potatoes (which went perfectly and was nice since we only have 1 oven) recipe on Allrecipes and corn.

Cheesy Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Really enjoyed this though don't know that it's the healthiest. Love the cottage cheese in here (hidden healthy). I also didn't think it needed salt though I threw in a shake or two of garlic salt but didn't taste it. I thought it was perfect and followed the recipe to the T without the salt.

Healthier Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
Loved this - I don't miss the beef at all, and I love that it's healthier and has carrots snuck in. I followed the recipe to the T with the addition of 1 more carrot since the one I had was small. Threw it in into my food processor to get grated carrots (since someone said their carrots weren't cooked through). I though this would be sweeter but it wasn't. I kept eyeballing the '2 jars of sauce' and wondering if it was all needed, but it was. I undercooked the ziti by 2 minutes and I'm glad that I did. This totally filled my 9x13 which made me happy. The only thing I would do differently next time is since I used provolone slices (that's what i had on hand and it kept the sauce from hitting the ziti), I would switch up the order and put the pasta, sauce, then provolone. Used Barilla Mushroom which tasted great and added another veggie in there.

Pork Medallions with Port and Dried Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
REALLY loved this one. The cranberries really make it, and happened to have some 'less sugar' craisins at home. I'll probably double the cornstarch slurry to thicken it a little more.

Mexican Spaghetti Squash Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
Really enjoyed this - the flavor is so good! The hubby branded it an 'instant classic'. Followed the recipe almost exactly (drained and rinsed the black beans which was not specified in the recipe. Glad we did.) Threw in the entire can (15 oz) of tomato sauce so we wouldn't be stuck with a half can. Also left out the seasoned salt completely after tasting it first - it didn't need it, it was plenty salty. Loved the sundried tomatoes in this even though I thought I would hate it, and I hate black beans but can barely notice it here. Also read a cool trick for spaghetti squash - cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, add half a cup of water and place the other half back on it. Microwave 12 minutes for a pound - if the top half is soft when it comes out, it's done. Otherwise, put it back in for a few more minutes.
