High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
ok I was a doubter, but this really worked, we don't really care for rare so I cooked for 9 min. per lb. I did an herb rub and italian dessing the night before then added some left over sauce from "Marinated Baked Pork Chop" recipe on this site (excellent) this roast was flavorful and tender.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
this was excellent, I let it marinate a few hours before cooking and I also cut cooking time to 15 min then basted & flipped for another 15, broiled last 3 min or so just to make the sauce al ittle thicker Excellent - used left over sauce on a roast the next night - very good

This was good - very rich. I didn't have green onions and family doesn't like peppers so ... added onion pwdr, garlic, pepper, Mrs Dash tomatoe Basil and crumbled bacon to cream cheese. Great taste just very rich, kinda too much by the end (still ate it though lol)

Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
this was good - i used chicken breasts (skinless & boneless) instead of a whole chicken, perhaps thats whu it's not getting a higher score, but it still had a nice taste - should have marinated it longer perhaps

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
hubby loved this - added golden raisins, brwn sugar and a little nutmeg to stuffing mix, also used a Mexican mix of cheeses. Didn't have any wine in house so used apple juice and a little chick stock. Had too much stuffing so after brwn in pan put in oven 350 @ 20 min added rest of stuffing on top of chicken and cooked another 10 min or so - excellent, very tender, juicy & tasty

Weeknight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Hubby liked this more than I did, it was good just not great, I used strawberry jam, apple cider, and mixed 1/2 golden & 1/2 honey mustard. Perhaps w/ a different jam ??? Good for a change.

Slow Cooker Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
the chicken was etremely juicy & tender, but the veggies were just ok in this gravy. I seasoned my chicken prior to adding the soup mixture (galic, onion pwdr, italian seasoning, seasoning salt, and pepper) also seasoned potatoes & carrots. I would malke again but would probably only cook the chicken this way and make different side dishes.

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I've been making this recipe for years - I add more spices ( onion pwdr, parsley, pepper, seasoning salt) I've also added a honey mustard to the mayo for added flavor, I've also used crushed croutons combined w/ the bread crumbs for an extra crunch.

Peanut Butter Apple Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I also add extra p.b. but this is a great dip for fruits & crackers. HINT: use pineapple juice on fresh cut fruit instead of lemon juice to keep it from turning brown, it adds a much nicer, milder flavor to fruit than the over bearing taste of lemon.

Garlic-Brown Sugar Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This was good - didn't have time to marinate, glad I didn't might have been too sweet. Used chicken breasts and simmered on stove top. Also cooked alot faster than recipe calls for.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This is good, it is what it is - its not a "gourmet dessert" its pudding and graham crackers, but it's very tasty, versatile, and easy to make. I did chocolate graham crackers and a cookies & cream pudding. Also did the frosting in micro - poured great but made it alittle hard to serve - it stuck to everything, a little sweet too, think if I made it again I'd use the chocolate sauce that is floating in these reviews somewhere lol

Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This is the 2nd time I've made these bars, and although very tasty - I keep loosing half the graham cracker crust in the pan. I added and extra tbsp butter thinking it would hold it together better and this time poured the whole can of cond. milk over the crumbs again thinking it would hold the crust together better (last time I split the can as other reviews suggested) I don't know what am I doing wrong these are wonerful in taste, they just fall apart.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I made this crust today for my hubby's 40th, he wanted his favorite apple pie. This was easy and simple and it rolled out nice. Great taste too and I'm not big on crusts. With the left overs I used small cookie cutters and made cookies rolled in cinnamon and sugar and baked a few minutes - 3 yr old loved them.

Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
my hubby loves these - using a 9x13 pan I double the recipe - use 1/2 wht and 1/2 brown sugars, we use raspberry jam for a more sweet/tart effect and add a little more than it calls for, I also end up using a little more butter to keep the crust together. very yummy !

Really really yummy Also I left the foil off and turned the chicken 1/2 way and the chicken was perfect and the sauce thicken really nice. Cook time is off though so watch it,

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
WOW I really dont like meatloaf, but this was fantastic. Family loved it, even our 3yr old who doesn't like anything "hamburger". Would even serve this to company - really that good! I did add a few things to the meatloaf according to our tastes (including some of the glaze - which is a must) I did lighten up on the brown sugar a little and probably would again next time I make it (used 1/2 cup not packed brwn sugar - again would go alittle lighter next time). used bread crumbs in place of crackers, added garlic, omitted ginger.
