Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Followed the directions exactly and they turned out just right. And they really were fluffy! I was totally craving fluffy pancakes and luckily I had all the ingredients on hand. I thought gee I hope they really do turn out fluffy because if they didn't I would have been really bummed out. They were nice and fluffy and just right. Saving this recipe for sure!

Fruity Krispy Treats

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
I loved making these when I was younger but now that I'm an adult they are way too sweet for me, and I like sweet things. So now I mix fruity pebbles with rice krispies so they aren't too sweet but still really tasty. By changing the ratio of fruity pebbles to rice krispies, you can make it more or less fruity to suit your tastes.

Instant Pistachio Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
I've had store-made versions of this which tasted better. I think that as-is, this was too much whipped cream, but I'm not overly fanatical about whipped cream to begin with. I think it would have more flavor if less whipped cream was used. The other yummy flavors are a little bit lost to all the whipped cream. But other than that, I liked this recipe. It was really super easy to make. This would be easy to take to a pot luck. I might double the recipe and not double the whipped cream. That would probably be perfect for a pot luck. I'm curious what it would taste like if the fruity mini marshmallows were used. If anyone tries that, please let us know!

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This is just like another recipe on here, but the other recipe is in a slow cooker and has sauerkraut with caraway seeds. If you are feeling too lazy to core apples, try using a can of apple pie filling instead. I think this recipe (and the very similar slow cooker recipe) works best with boneless pork chops or pork tenderloin. I didn't like it as much with a pork shoulder roast. But overall, very good recipe. Everyone I know loves it.

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This is the best way to make green bean casserole. We use the french style cut green beans. We don't use soy sauce or milk, just a little bit of salt & pepper. So yummy!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Yum! The pork just fell right apart. It tasted great. I didn't have to fuss with it. I added just a dash of liquid smoke to the pot, but I don't know that it made any difference. I used our favorite barbecue sauce, I only used just enough of it, you don't want the pork swimming in BBQ sauce. Then I let that sit on low for another hour or so. Then you put a little BBQ sauce on the bun, spoon the pork onto it, and YUM! The pork was super juicy and tender. We'll definitely have this again. We used pork tenderloin because it was on sale for a really good deal. I might also try this with another cut of pork, or maybe pork chops without the BBQ sauce. Anyway, the rootbeer + pork idea works great.

Shepherd's Pie V

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Way too much seasoning! Shepherd's pie isn't supposed to have so much seasoning. I will definitely cut out most of the seasoning next time and I'll probably use a jar of brown gravy instead of bouillon and water. I was thinking I might do cheddar flavored potatoes on top next time too.

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I used German chocolate cake mix with mine. It was tricky timing them at first, trying to tell when they were done, but after the first batch or two that went in the oven I had it figured out when they "looked" done. I used parchment paper to line my cookie sheets and let them cool a minute before I moved them to a plate. Then I used pecan frosting to sandwich them together, turning them into German chocolate sandwich cookies. OMG, they were SO GOOD! I put them in a Tupperware container and they have stayed soft, perfect and fresh all week. They're almost gone though. I will definitely have to make these again, and experiment with other cake mix and frosting combinations.

Campbell's® Quick and Easy Chicken, Broccoli and Brown Rice Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
This was pretty tasty, easy to make, simple comfort food. Cream of chicken sounded too boring so I used broccoli cheese soup and cream of mushroom soup instead, and I added some canned mushrooms too. The rice took longer than I had hoped, but that was probably user error on my part. It turned out yummy in the end, and the chicken was so moist and tender. I'll definitely be making this again. The leftovers were good too.
