OREO Cookie Balls
These were the hit of my little one's 3rd birthday party! *First, since several attendees were gluten-free, I made this with Gluten Free sandwich cookies (Kinnikinnick K-Toos chocolate cookies - 2 packages of these equals 36 cookies exactly. I didn't cover with crushed cookie crumbs.). It worked beautifully - no issues. *Second, I followed other reviewers' advice and froze the balls before dipping (actually, they sat in the freezer overnight). *Third, after freezing, I inserted lollipop sticks and these made dipping in chocolate a breeze. I did spoon chocolate over the tops and merely dipped the bottoms to cover the entire cookie ball. This also made eating a little easier for little ones - less chocolate mess on the hands. :-) (We're in the middle of a typical, brutal Texas summer. These melt fast, so I served them straight from the 'fridge and the lolly sticks kept some of the mess in check.) I can't wait to make these again...and try different variations. :-)

Sweet Simmered Pork Chops
I've made this twice now and I'm giving it 4 stars as-is. When following the recipe as written, the pork chops are tasty but they are a soupy mess. There is no real sauce, so to speak. The natural juices mingled with the soda/barbecue sauce concoction and watered it down. However, when I made them a second time, I boiled the daylights out of the sauce in a saucepan for about 15-20 minutes (or so - just watch for it to thicken a bit), until it thickened. I then brushed some onto the chops and reserved the rest to pour on at the dinner table (I stuck it in a gravy boat and let my hubby and the kids pour on to their hearts' desire). Everyone agreed that doing it this was much better, the chops were more flavorful and the sauce is KILLER! Thanks for a good starting point. Will definitely make this again the amended way. :-)

Grandpa's Garden Chicken Soup
Wow. Just wow. I did not have kohlrabi, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. This was absolutely FANTASTIC!
