High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
I was skeptical about turning off the oven but I'm glad I did. The 5-lb. roast I made came out a little more done than I prefer (it was perfect if you like medium), but it was still juicy and good. I cooked it at 475° for 35 minutes and left it in for 2.5 hours as directed. Next time I'll take it out of the oven earlier. I seasoned it with coarse sea salt, cracked pepper, a package of Lipton onion soup mix and some fresh chopped parsley. Great flavor! I added a cornstarch slurry and flour to the juices and cooked up some wonderful gravy.

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
These cookies were great! I flattened them a bit and took them out a hair early as I prefer a denser, moist cookie to the more cake-like variation. They are nice and chocolaty--I made them plain and they were delicious but I'm sure they would make a phenomena base for nuts, chips, flavorings and/or jam. This now will be my go-to chocolate cookie recipe!

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
I simmered two briskets in a slow cooker on low for nearly ten hours and the meat was so tender it was almost impossible to slice without falling apart! The leftovers (and I can't believe I had any) sliced easily once chilled. I personally felt the beer flavor was overwhelming, so about halfway through cooking I bailed out half the beer/juice and replaced it with very hot water. I'll try one beer (or none, or one not as strong as Guinness) next time. However, if you're a fan of that rich beer flavor, go for it. Those of you who complained that this recipe was bland should go to a doctor and have your tastebuds examined. Definitely worth trying!

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
This was juicy and tender, and very easy! I used a 7-lb. pork shoulder and poured a little bit of pineapple juice over the meat before rubbing it with brown sugar. Served sliced was good, but the meat was just perfect for shredding and coating with Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
I accidentally left out the vanilla and this cake still turned out magnificently! It was moist and rich but not too sweet. I made a layer cake with whipped ganache frosting and a raspberry filling and my coworkers were raving about it. This is definitely a keeper. It was a little difficult to frost because it was so sticky and a little crumbly, but well worth the effort.
