Cranberry Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
Yummy!!! I didn't have fresh cranberries, so used a can of whole cranberry sauce with only 1/2 cup sugar. I also added 1/2 a chopped onion for some additional flavor. I did not need to add any water as the recipe stated as the chops made their own liquid. As a matter of fact, I had to add a bit of flour to thicken the sauce into a gravy consistency. This was delicious!

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
Still tasted like sweet potatoes, and I'm not much of a fan... they came out soggy rather than crispy, and some of them burnt. I guess they'd be alright if you were a big fan of sweet potatoes...

Ginger Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I would've rated this 5 stars, but I made some drastic changes, so it's not the recipe as written per se. My changes: Instead of stevia, and sugar in the raw (whatever that is) I just used regular old white sugar. I also used white corn syrup. Instead of butter, I substituted the same amount of oil since we're on a dairy-free diet. I did not bother with putting the dough in the fridge for 2 hours, since it was not overly sticky when I was done mixing. I also didn't bother with rolling the balls in extra sugar. With my changes, this was a quick, easy and delicious recipe that I'll be making again, for sure! These are YUMMY and didn't last long at all. Next time though, I will be doubling the recipe. As written, it says it makes 48 cookies, but in fact I only came out with 24, and did not make them overly large. I don't know how the recipe submitter could possibly come up with 48 out of this unless they were fingernail sized cookies. :P

Luscious Lemon Snaps

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
This one is hard to review. Had I rated them right out of the oven, I would've given it ONE star and called them a waste of good lemons. The next day, however... they improved! Somehow... they were still chewy and not what I expected, but maybe they grew on me overnight. Who knows.

Happy Birthday Cake

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Edible, but BARELY. Brick-like comes to mind. Very heavy and dense. It'd be more like a bread than a cake, if breads were even this heavy. Cooking time per recipe instructions is waaaaay off. At 35 minutes, the batter was still soupy. I had to double the time. Lesson learned the hard way with this recipe... always test a recipe before serving at a function. :(

Oven Meatballs

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Yummy!! I was tempted to add some onions or bread crumbs or something to the meat as I was mixing it up into balls, but in the interest of keeping some semblence of this recipe, I refrained. :) Per other reviews, I only used 1/4 cup sugar. I left out the soy sauce and mustard powder, and instead added 1/4 cup BBQ sauce along with 1/4 cup ketchup. I also used red wine vinegar. This was really good! :) I will be keeping this recipe!

Corny Corn Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
This recipe is great!! Awesome corn bread! I only used one can of corn, and I think it was just the right amount. My only substitution otherwise was using rice milk instead of regular, because we are non-dairy right now. I WILL be making this again! :) Bye Bye Jiffy Mix!! :D

Dairy and Soy-Free Birthday Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Need to adjust water. Also make sure a clear vanilla is used, the brown variety will interfere with coloring.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Yummy! Instead of the onion soup mix, I rubbed some Mrs. Dash over the turkey. It came out nice and moist, unlike most turkey breasts. I usually prefer dark meat because white always comes out so dry, but that wasn't the case with this recipe! :)

Rainbow Pasta Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
This is awesome pasta salad! The only thing I would change is the amount of onion... I only used 1/2 a red onion instead of the whole as called for, and I STILL feel like it was waaay too much. The onion was a bit overpowering. I will be making this again, definitely, but will be using 1/4 of an onion next time. I also used a basalmic vinegarette in place of the italian dressing.... yummy!

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
Wonderful method! There was no problem adding the sugar dry, as a previous reviewer noted... the ham adds its own juices. I'll be using this one again!

Bread Pudding I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This was just so-so... it did NOT get good reviews from my family. Definitely isn't a recipe worthy to serve to guests, but if you've got some stale bread to get rid of, you might try another recipe for bread pudding... :P I made the lemon sauce with orange instead, and THAT was the best part...

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
It didn't fall off the bone for us, but was a good recipe nonetheless. Good method, I will be trying this again. :)

Fried Zucchini

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Not bad... I actually liked the cornmeal rather than just plain flour. I added diced onions as the variation, along with some garlic powder to help the flavor a bit. I soaked the zucchini in water immediately before dipping in the cornmeal, so it stuck no problem. :)

No Bake Cereal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
Good and easy! Almost TOO sweet for my tastes, I may cut down on the sugar just a bit next time. My son LOVED this, and I loved how quick and easy it was to make "cookies"... when I didn't feel like getting the flour, butter, etc. out to make them. :)

Easy Italian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
Good, but very very basic. It did have a bit of a fatty taste as well, but some people like that... I did leave out the red pepper. I like the method though, next time I plan on adding different spices to help it out just a bit. I paired this recipe with the orange glazed asparagus from this site, and they went well together. :)

Orange-Glazed Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
I was a little skeptical at first about how the citrus flavor would combine with the asparagus taste, but it was really yummy after it sat in the juices for a bit. Definitely a keeper!

Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Great!! I left out the cocoa and used diced tomatoes instead of the whole... added an additional can of them, as it seemed a bit dry without. I also used canned mushrooms as I had them on hand instead of the fresh. Good recipe!!

Spareribs and Kraut

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Das ist gut!! Just like Mama used to make. :) I used boneless country ribs and they came out nice and tender. I used garlic powder, onion salt and pepper over the ribs before the first bake. I used a can of sauerkraut, (forgot to check how much they called for here before fixing) but next time I'd use two cans, it went quickly! I increased the cooking time to ensure the ribs would be tender. :) This is a keeper!

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
Yummy! I dipped them in a flour/onion salt/garlic powder mixture and fried them lightly before putting them in the dish for the oven. Also used 1/2 ketchup, and 1/2 BBQ and diet coke for the topping. Left out the brown sugar, since the BBQ and coke are already sweet, I didn't think it was necessary. I only baked them for 45 minutes since they were already partially cooked from the frying. Came out delicious! I will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks!
