Roasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
So much better than store-bought garlic bread (of course)! Next time, I will roast the garlic a bit longer to make it creamier, though.

Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
My family and I absolutely loved this sweet coleslaw! I didn't use pineapple juice, so it was likely not as sweet as it could be, but I didn't miss it. Instead, I added 2 teaspoons of finely shredded coconut right on top of the chopped apples (highly experimental) and the juice from half a lemon, and I was sooooo happy I did! The coconut flavor is light but noticeable and soooooo good with the apple flavor! I also mixed the wet ingredients together first like others suggested. Mine was not soupy at all because I used pre-shredded cabbage (cole slaw mix) from Sam's. I'm pleased with how light the dressing is because it doesn't make me feel guilty for eating it!

Garlic Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
My hubby LOVED these. They were a little heavy on the bread crumbs for me, but he insisted I make them again after they were all gone. :) So I will give them five stars for him.

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
One of my faves! I cooked the bacon a bit so it would be crispier. My mother-in-law didn't like it the first time I cooked it because she said the bacon was raw, despite me cooking it waaay longer than the recipe suggested, which made the green beans wither. So when I cooked the bacon before-hand for about 5 minutes, it came out better. Plus, I used olive oil instead of butter. YUM!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I've made this at least a half dozen times, and a little different each time and it always comes out great. First time, I followed recipe except I used beef broth. Other times, I've used chicken broth and added minced garlic and onions. I've also added various veggies since it makes a lot of an awesome gravy. Plus, I always sear it first with pepper and salt, like others siggest.

Mexican Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This recipe probably would have been milder but just as good as the tweaked one I made. And lemme say, it was AWESOME! I doubled the onion, the cocoa, and cumin, used 6 cloves minced garlic, and tomato sauce instead of soup. Oh and I used a can of diced tomatoes with green Chiles already in it. I spread half the sauce on the bottom of a baking dish, put 12 skinless boned chicken thighs on top, sprinkled salt and pepper on top and saved the other half of the sauce to spoon on the chicken individually. Oh yeah, I cooked it at 400 degrees until the temp was right on the thermometer...about 40-45 minutes. PERFECT!!!

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I made these for my daughter's classmates and teachers for Christmas, and got rave reviews! I added crushed peppermint to the dough and rolled it in pure peppermint candy after rolling it in a powdered sugar/peppermint mixture. I'm in LOVE with these because they're buttery AND minty! Two of my favorite flaves!

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Great flavor and super simple! I used unsweetened apple sauce instead of the juice, about a lil less than a tbsp of rosemary (it can overpower dishes easily, in my opinion) and about 2 tbsp of dijon. Perfect!

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
My 5 year old said, "this is the BEST meat EVER! You have to cook it this way ALL the time." :-) So, it's a hit in the Newcomb household! I made some small adjustments like I used chicken broth instead of beef bouillon and eyeballed it, about 16 oz. of water, and some onion. Everything else was the same. Thanks for this amazing and simple recipe!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
FIRST time baking a cake from scratch! What an enjoyable experience, from bowl to mouth. I'm tempted to never make a chocolate cake from any other recipe but this one. The fam LOVED it! It was very rich, just the way we like it! ;-)

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
SO simple! I can't believe how easy these were! And the whole family LOVED them. I asked how many stars they thought the recipe should receive out of five, and they said 6! lol I followed the recipe to the letter, except I cut the butter into tiny squares. I'm definitely making these weekly!

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Cooked the bacon in the oven at 400 until it was done, let it cool, then broke it up into pieces. I added this to the soup about half-way through cooking. SO yummy!

Simple and SO tasty. My 5 yr old loves the idea of calling the bowtie bats, but she calls the cheese bat poo. LOL Not appetizing, but cute. :-) Happy Halloween!
