Sage Pork Chops
I used boneless porkchops, fresh sage, and added onions and garlic to the sauce, didn't salt the meat, and cut down the cooking time...but the meat was VERY tough and though the pork chops were bland, the sauce was very salty...even though I only used one beef bouillon tablet in 2 cups of boiling water (for 4 small boneless porkchops). My husband said it tasted like bad Chinese food...probably from the MSG from the bouillon cube. Should have known from the ingredients.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken
I decided to try this out and found that the seasonings were ok, but just using salt and pepper ONLY on a boneless skinless chicken thigh (taking out the excess fat w/ knife) and using butter on the pan makes the skin nice and crisp,JUICY inside, and the BEST CHICKEN EVER. No need for other seasonings...but to make gravy, scraped bits w/ flour, butter and REAL garlic, now THAT's what makes a good seasoning! Never tried butter to fry the chicken before, thanx for the idea!

Too Much Chocolate Cake
It is 2 hours before my baby's Dr. appointment, and I am extremely disappointed with the results. I decided to bake something nice for the Dr. and staff for the holidays, and thought this would be a no brainer with its rave reviews. I made two 8 inch square cakes, and I ended up eating a quarter of the one pan trying to debate if I should bother taking it to the Dr or not. It IS denser than the cake box mix, but that's all the difference I taste. Maybe I'll just make the Satiny chocolate glaze and give it in so I don't waste it, but what a disappointment! UPDATE: I originally gave this a 1 star, but had to change it to 4. With the left over, my toddler couldn't get enough of it (he doesn't really like too much sweets believe it or not...maybe the "bittersweet" chocolate chips made it more palatable for him). My 6 year old nephew cried "THIS IS THE BEST BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE EVER! THIS IS BETTER THAN MY MOM'S!!" Even my sister exclaimed what a great, rich cake this was. Hmm, perhaps it's just a personal taste preference (thus the 4 star) but I'm glad I ended up giving the other cake to the Doctor and staff.
