Pennsylvania-Style Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Made it for New Year's Day (PA Dutch tradition to have sauerkraut). One of the better pork-sauerkraut recipes we have tried. I used pork chops in the crock pot for 7 hours with 1 can of sauerkraut and 8 oz of chicken broth to keep it moist and they were very good.

Slow Cooker Lancaster County Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
An unlikely combination that works. I don't LOVE the taste of caraway seeds or saurkraut but it all came together nicely for something a little different. Followed the suggestions of others: added 1/2 can of beer, used an apple corer/slicer on 2 apples and placed the wedges all around the pork, added 2 Tbsp brown sugar (sprinkled some on top and some on the apples). I used Rome apples since I wanted something not so tart and the flavor was very mild, maybe too mild, but still good. I also seasoned the pork with s&p and browned it first, but that's only because I think the coloring is more appetizing. I used a 3lb roast, cooked it for 4 hours on high and then turned it to low while I got the side dishes ready, probably another 45 min. It fell apart and was moist. Definitely serve with applesauce! Enjoy!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
I used this to make orzo pasta salad for Greek night and we loved it. To make with 1 cup orzo I reduced the serving size to 10 and followed exactly except used half the vinegar just because I don't like too much vinegar. Only needed a little dressing on the orzo, to which I added sliced olives and feta cheese. The olives made the dish because otherwise the oregano was too overpowering and the olives balanced it out. Served immediately. Hubby asked to take leftovers for a snack at work and he NEVER takes leftovers.

Gyros Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Mu husband wanted to have Greek night and this was the closest to lamb gyros I could find on this site. Followed the recipe exact (well, used 2/3c panko breadcrumbs in place of toast). We crumbled the burgers and stuffed into pita with tzatziki sauce from the Joy of Cooking. Made an orzo salad using the dressing "absolutely Fabulous Greek House Dressing" from this site. Hubby gave it all 4 stars.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Excellent. I did not have an onion or tomato sauce so I substituted 1/2 cup of salsa. I also used 1 can of low sodium chicken broth (14.5 oz) which is just under the recommended 2 cups, but it came out perfect. It was a little bit salty so I will probably cut back on the garlic salt next time. Cooked on low for 25 minutes without lifting the top and it was cooked perfectly.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly and everyone loved them. Not sure why people say you have to refrigerate the dough first - I did not and they were perfect.
