Becki's Oven Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2014
Easy and very delicious! I followed previous reviewers' suggestions to reduce the ketchup and add soy and other spices. I doubled the sauce, poured it over chicken legs and wings in a glass dish lined with baking paper, and baked it at 400 for 1 hour. I will definitely do this again!

Apple Butter Spice Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
This is a keeper! I used bran flakes for the cereal and chopped almonds instead of pecans (what I had in the house). This is perfect to make for office gatherings, too.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
Wow - these two items are good alone, but together they are AMAZING!! I used peach-mango preserves and Fuji apples (to avoid browning), but otherwise I used all the ingredients as listed. Everyone wanted the recipe, and I will definitely be making it again.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
Good recipe, wrong cooking lengths. Pork chops dry out when overcooked, even if they are sitting in sauce. I made my own cream of mushroom soup base and added a can of golden mushroom soup, plus I doubled the wine. I would repeat, but the cooking time is about half or less in every instance.

Peach Pie

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Perfect! I did use half brown and half white sugar, plus about a Tablespoon of corn starch. I baked it at 350 the full 45 minutes, then turned off the oven and let the pie sit in there for another half hour (as suggested by previous reviewers). Great!

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Very good, but you'll need more strawberries than it calls for. I ended up with almost an entire quart in the dish, which meant I had about 1/2 cup of the syrup mixture leftover because it wouldn't all fit.

Wonton Wrappers

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Wow, this was a lot of work. I did it because they don't sell wonton wrappers where I live, but in addition to making the stuffing for the wontons and fried rice to go with it, it took a long time. This is a Saturday project if I ever do it again.

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Fabulous! This got many rave reviews at our faculty Christmas party last night. I left out the rum entirely and didn't have whole cloves, so I followed a previous reviewer's advice and substituted 1/2 tsp ground cloves. I had no curdling problems at all - just whisked in the hot mixture 1/2 cup at a time. I will definitely make this again!

Dad's Steak Rub

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Easy and fast. Great for those nights when we forgot to marinate ahead of time!

Stracciatella II

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
The whole family enjoyed this. I did put in two cloves of garlic when I cooked the chicken. Then, I didn't have enough celery to put more in after the blending, so I threw in half a can of corn. I also used canned spinach (and probably less than what the recipe calls for). I juiced two lemons rather than measuring the lemon juice, too. Oh, and when I made the egg-broth mixture, there was too much to add it all to the soup pot, so I only ended up using half of it. We liked it as it was, so I threw out the rest rather than adding it to the leftovers. I will make this again!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
I used leftover rice we had in the fridge, so because that meant I didn't have a packet of seasonings, I just added curry, thyme, and extra salt to the flour/spice mixture. Also, because the rice was already cooked, I first threw in some chopped celery and frozen vegetables, let them cook a while, and then added the rice. Milk worked just fine instead of cream, too. I usually don't like to change a recipe so much the first time I make it, but I didn't have time to run to the store first. It was good even with my changes!

Bran Muffins II

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
This is a good recipe, although the muffins are better warm than cool. It was a good way to use up a box of plain bran cereal that no one was eating the usual way. I will try it again with some of the raisin/pineapple/apple additions suggested by other reviewers.

Vanilla Ice Cream VIII

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
I read several of the reviews, so I knew this had the possibility of being too icy. And then, after we had it all hooked up and spinning in the ice cream maker, I realized that I didn't have enough ice to fill the bucket like I should have! So I was thrilled that it came out so yummy. Of course, it isn't as creamy as other ice creams; there isn't as much cream when you use regular milk instead of whipping cream. But this was easy easy easy, everyone in the family loved it, and we will definitely do it again very soon!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Wow, this was really easy and really good. I was a little loose with the recipe: not enough lemon juice in the house, so I finished the 1/4 cup with OJ; regular white vinegar instead of rice vinegar; regular onion instead of green onion; white sugar instead of brown; a little more fresh ginger than it called for. Usually I like to try a recipe exactly as it is, but I had to use what was in the house. Also, a previous reviewer mentioned using slices of orange peel instead of just the zest, so I did that and it came out great. This is a keeper, and next time I would like to add broccoli, as suggested by another reviewer, or maybe bamboo shoots, steamed carrots, or the baby corn.

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This is a good start, but it does not work as-is. First, if your crock pot is large like mine, there is not enough liquid and your meat will dry out. So add at least 1/4-1/2 cup water. I also should have added the honey suggested by a previous reviewer (maybe 1/4 cup) and cut the ginger in half or used fresh ginger, as that was pretty much all I tasted in the end product. Maybe the worcestershire sauce would have helped. Everyone liked it (served over rice) but by that I mean that everyone ate it without complaining. So I might try it again with much doctoring ... or I will more likely just keep looking for a good slow cooker boneless pork chop recipe.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Excellent. Based on previous reviews, I added a bit extra Tabasco (maybe 4 shakes instead of one) and used apple cider vinegar because I didn't have the red wine vinegar. Our guests showed up early, so I didn't have time to make the gravy everyone raved about, but I will next time. I served it with mashed potatoes and the maple-dill carrots on this same site.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Just like KFC! Instead of the bagged mix, I just chopped up two heads of cabbage (minus the cores) and a large carrot as fine as I could and then doubled the sauce part. Went very well with BBQ pork sandwiches (from the crock pot).
