Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
This is a keeper. Whole family enjoyed it. It's a little time consuming. I used a can of raspberry Solo filling found in the baking isle. I used an angled spreader to smear out the dough, then cc filling, then raspberry filling, worked great. I had to count the carbs for our family so from my guesstimating it was roughly 400 carbs for the entire dish.

Pumpkin-Oat Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Made these this morning. They were very good. They were dense and not muffin like. I gave 4 stars because I added 1/4 c. brown sugar after reading all the reviews about how they weren't sweet enough. I used 1 t. cinnamon and 1 t. pumpkin pie spice. Instead of milk, I used Caramel coffee creamer. My dough was a little dry so I added 2 extra Tbs of creamer. I also added a small handful of mini chocolate chips. I used a cheese shredder and shredded my cold butter into the flour mixture. It was easier thank using a pastry blender. I would like to try subbing some applesauce for the butter next time to see how they turn out to cut down on the fat. I just used a pastry brush and brushed a light layer of glaze on top. I would make these again.

Simply the Easiest Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
This was my first time making brisket. ( I am not a novice cook) It was DEEE-LISH!! I didn't have beer, so I used part beef broth and part of a can of cherry limeade from MinuteMade ( thought about using root beer but opted not to-maybe next time). This made a lot of sauce. I think next time I'll cut that part in half. I used 1/2 c brown sugar like others suggested. I started mine in the oven at 300 for an hour and then decreased the oven temp to 275 for 3 hours and let it bake while I was at church. Got home, removed top foil, and increased temp to 325 for 30 min like the recipe states. It was very moist. The sauce wasn't as thick as bbq, but wasn't like water either, but it was still good. Shredding the rest of it and having bbq beef sandwiches with the leftovers. My kids and Husband both enjoyed this as well.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
These were delish! I accidentally made them a little too spicy for my kids, but they still ate them. I had candied ginger and used that instead of pickled. I also didn't have hoisin sauce so I googled a recipe for that and it turned out very good: 4 Tbsp soy sauce, 2 Tbsp peanut butter, 1 Tbsp honey, 2 tsp rice or white vinegar, 1/4 tsp garlic, 2 tsp sesame oil, 1/8 tsp pepper, and chinese hot sauce to taste. I just added the whole mixture bc I had a little more than a pound of beef. I will definitely make these again. (A little less spicy though!)

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
These were Yummy and kid approved! My kids kept raving over them. I added 1/4 c of BBQ sauce as suggested by others, 1 T Worcestershire, 1 t garlic powder, and I also added a little water because mine were a little too thick. I did not add the brown sugar, they were sweet enough with all the ketchup and BBQ. I made them in the morning before work, and my dh just had to reheat. A little cole slaw & frozen fries and dinner was ready in no time! This will be my Sloppy Joe go to recipe!

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These were good. I give 5 stars for easiness and tastiness. Mine were not cakey. Mine took a good 14-15 minutes to bake. Baked on parchment, simple clean up.

Minnesota Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This is a good basic comfort food recipe. Very easy to prepare. I used 2 boxes of Uncle Bens rice. I used the amount of water called for on the boxes of rice but decreased the amount of water by about 1/2 cup based on other's reviews. (I used 2-1/2 c of water) I didn't add the bouillon cubes since I used the season packets in the rice. I also used cream of chicken on top bc I didn't have mushroom. I prepared it before I went to work, and my husband put it in the oven when he got home. We cooked it for 2 hours covered and it was probably done before that. The rice did get cooked in my dish. I liked the ease of the recipe. I'd make it again.

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I happened to stumble across this recipe on here today. I have been making this for my Christmas breakfast for at least 10 years! I only use 2 cups of cheese and I also add about 1/2 cup milk. I precook my sausage the day before. I also add a package of crescent rolls on top of the eggs in addition to the bottom. Pillsbury now has make a crescent roll dough that isn't perforated which made this a cinch to make this year. Mine takes a minimum 45 minutes to bake. It makes a lot.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
This was very good. It was a nice change from regular seared pork roast. I used a very expensive balsamic vinegar, and it did not taste like vinegar. I also added some onion onion from tastefully simple and fresh crushed garlic. I marinated mine about 6 hours. I used an oven thermometer and took it out at 160 degrees. It finished cooking and it was very moist. My 8 and 6 year old sons really liked it too. I will make this again.

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
On taste I give this 5 stars. On prep I give 4 stars. A lot of chopping and prep work, but the end taste was well worth it. I don't think this was lacking in flavor at all. I only used 1 pkg of onion soup mix and added 2 cubes of beef bouillon. I also didn't have any wine, so I left it out altogether and added the mushrooms in with the onions (chopped smaller than recommended) to saute a little (scraping up all the pieces on the bottom of the pan as one person recommended). The beef just fell apart it was so tender. It was the best beef stew I've made or tasted.

Buffalo Chicken Wings III

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Good. I liked the convenience of baking. I sprinkled salt, pepper and garlic on them and then baked for 45 min at 400 as suggested by others, dipped them in the sauce, baked for 10 more min, basted again and then broiled them for 5 min at 425. My husband said they were cooked perfect. I didn't care for the tomato sauce in the hot sauce. I will leave it out next time. I make some with buffalo sauce, also some with BBQ (bottled), and some with Teriyaki (also bottled)for my kids who can't take the heat yet. I also bake mine on the broiling pan with a little water in the pan. It makes clean up much easier, dripping don't smoke and burn.
