All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
I can't say enough great things about this recipe. This was my first try at making apple butter and I couldn't ask for an easier recipe to follow. I used less sugar like other reviews had suggested and ended up using 1 cup brown and 1 cup white sugar. I double the amount of cloves because it's one of my favorites, and also used 2 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon. Not too sweet, not too spicy... Just pure perfection! I filled my 5-quart slow cooker to the brim with the chopped apples and used a fork to press down the sugar mixture before putting the lid on. After 11 hours had passed I transferred the apples to a blender in batches and pureed the butter until smooth. I then returned the puree to the slow cooker with the lid off for another 1 1/2 hours. The batch took a total of 12 1/2 hours and yielded an exact 8 cups of butter. I have processed it all in a water bath and they are sealed and ready for the holidays! Thank you Terri for this amazing recipe! It will be used again and again!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Superb! I cut this recipe into quarters and I use it frequently with one 4oz. salmon fillet. It's easy to make just one serving! I like to use butter rich maple which adds a different twist to it. I favor this over plain teriyaki glazes any day!

Salsa Chicken

This is my new favorite way to bake chicken! The leftovers are fantastic! I love to dice it up the next day and make soft tacos out of it. Delicious!

Creamy Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Amazing! I used mayo for my first attempt, but I'm very excited about trying it with Dijon. I used this vinaigrette for a pasta salad and there wasn't a noodle left in the bowl! Every person who tried it asked me how to make it. I added 2 extra cloves of garlic (my family loves garlic) and a teaspoon of Oregano for some color. This has become my go-to salad/pasta dressing.

Bahama-Mama Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Amazing! I made this for our Easter dinner and it was incredible. The only change I made was to substitute the dried cranberries for the raisins. I served this with some sauteed green beans and wild rice. Best Easter dinner I've ever head! This has become my new go-to recipe when I have guests. Thank you for this amazing and easy pork recipe!

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Super easy! This recipe will be used again and again in my house. It's low in calories as well as sodium. I strained out the pineapple as it was cooling the first time I made this. On my second try I used crushed pineapple instead that gave it a great texture. I also added a few tablespoons to crushed red pepper flakes to give it a kick.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
This recipe was wonderful! I tasty way to use extra apples. I am only giving this 4 stars because I made two batches of these and both were a little dry for my taste. My first batch I followed the recipe exactly, and those were considerably more moist than the second batch. On my second batch I did not have any nuts in the house, so I substituted the same amount of old-fashioned oats in its place. And I drizzled some honey over the top before baking in addition to the cinnamon and sugar. Those bars were more cake-like and much more dry. I ended up glazing both batches with a simple powdered sugar glaze to moisten them up. They were delicious! I will be making these again, that's for sure!

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I really enjoyed this side dish! I love sweet potatoes and I especially love spicy food. This was a great combination of flavors. I did cut down on the heat and the amount of seasoning for fear of them turning out too salty for my taste. Excellent!

Meatloaf in a Mug

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Amazing! Who knew?! I topped mine off with a squeeze of ketchup and it made my night! This simple recipe can be customized for any taste. I've tried it several times and added a little crushed red pepper flakes, or some minced white onion.
