Sweet Maple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2004
This recipe was amazing. Everyone who came to Sunday dinner was so impressed and delighted with the sweet flavor and the tender porkchops. The only thing I changed was I had to use more oats for the coating than the recommended amount. Some of the oats fell of during cooking but this made the sauce have a great texture.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
This recipie is wonderful. I made a couple of batches for friends and people at work last christmas time and now in September with the first chill in the air I am getting calls for more bread. I added a little vanilla extract and about 1/4 of a cup of maple syrup, which was the flavor no one could place but everyone loved!

Roasted Butternut Squash, Olive and Parmesan Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
This recipe was good, the risotto turned out nice and creamy and the squash gave a beautiful color and flavor, but next time I would half the amount of olives and cut them into smaller pieces, they were visiually nice but the flavor of the big pieces was too much for me

Caramel Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Have made this recipe two years in a row now for Thanksgiving and everyone loves it. With the caramels it can be a little too sweet so I usually cut back on the sugar. I usually make the pie the night before, then just put it in the oven right before we sit down for dinner, turn the oven off and let the residual heat warm up the pie. Perfect.

Apple Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I was really suprised by this recipe, it sounds kinda strange but came out really good. I had some apples that I needed to use up and didn't want to make a dessert or anything sweet, this was great. I didn't have any fresh tomatos on hand so I just drained some canned diced tomatoes and only had chedder cheese at home. It worked out well

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This was a good recipes, I'm making it for gifts this year with a small gift bag of home-made marshmallows. My only suggestions would be I used almost a half a cup more confectioners sugar and the dutch dark cocoa powder, and a 1/4 c. more creamer to make it less watery. Would definatly be better made with milk. Also recommend sifting all ingrediants before putting in jars. FYI recipe makes 5 pint jars full, be sure to tap them on the counter before sealing to allow for settling

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
These were wonderful gifts!! I made some of the finished cookies before hand and they were terrible! Dry and crumbly, but then I realized I had forgotten the white sugar. Made all the difference. Great tasting cookies. I took a tip from another post and layered the white sugar at the bottom and then white chips, then cranberries and then brown sugar, flour and oats. That way when you cover the top you can still see all the festive colors. I used old christmas card and glued the instructions to the back of the pictures. Made beautiful tags and didn't have to buy cardstock.

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
We really enjoyed this dish. I did as others suggested and used 1/2 cup of chunky peanut butter instead of the roasted peanuts since that is what I had on hand. I also doubled the sauce recipe so that there was enough sauce for the rice. I had never used wok oil before and really enjoyed the added flavor, had always just used what ever oil I had handy.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Great salad and style I had never made before. I only put 1/2c. of sugar in and thought it was plenty sweet. Every one loved it. Will definatly be making it several times over the summer. The amount of salad was nice since there was only 4 of us for Easter, not so much leftover you get sick of eating it but would definalty double it to take to a larger gathering or barbque.

Italian Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
For an easy, throw together dish, this was excellent. Especially when BBQ just doesnt sound good and you get the meat on a great sale. We just boiled some rigatonie and used the sauce on the meat and the pasta. Even my super picky 2 year old ate his whole plate and then more the next day. I didn't even change it like I usually do. The only thing I did differently was I had the 26oz cans of Hunts spag. sauce on hand and not two of the same flavor so I ended up using 1 whole cand or the spicy and zesty and a half can of garlic herb. I found that the next day I had the left over sauce to put over the pasta wich was kinda dry after being in the fridge.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
If I could I would give it a 4 for flavor and a five for being so easy, but I can fix the flavor- more garlic more garlic. Really this was a great alfredo. I had my concerns when I mixed the cream cheese with the butter, it did not look like it was going to come together but you just have to keep stirring and give the cream cheese time to soften and melt. I used this for some ravioli with a big salad and crusty bread and it was great. It did make alot though and I had enough to use later in the week with macaroni, left over chicken and broccoli. Big hit with my 2 1/2 year old.

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This recipe was really good!! I have had trouble before getting that really crispy fry with out par cooking or frying and then doing it again but this batter did the trick. The first couple of pieces I put in I was a little nervous because they take a few minutes to brown but they turned out great. I used a large electric skillet so I could more closely monitor the heat and had mine turned on 400 degreees. Next time I think I will try doing them in the over. Healthier and because my ventilation is poor in our apartment it did make the house smell of oil for a day or so.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Was very nervous about cooking the roast this way but I always over cook roasts in the oven so I thought I would give it a shot. This will be the only way I cook a roast in the oven from now on. Turned out great!! Nice and pinky-red in the middle, just the way we like it.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
Just finished having this for dinner, and it was really good for how easy it was. Start to finish really 30 min and I got to use all the shrimp shells. I made cous cous as a side. Boiled shrimp shells in 2 cups water for 10 minutes while I melted the butter and made the scampi sauce then strained out the shells, put in the cous cous at the same time I put the shrimp in the oven. SO good and different. Like some of the suggestions I used 1/2 cup water and a good splash of white wine. Served with steamed cauliflower. Delicious.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
These were great!! Doubled the recipe and glad I did. I did add 1tsp. vanilla, an extra egg and about 3 tbsp of Splenda. These did take longer to cook through and the first one I pulled to early and it was still gooey in the middle. With a little spread of peanut butter my 3 year old ate 3 whole pancakes!! And I didn't even feel guilty because they were so good for him.

Stuffed and Wrapped Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
good, just not spectacular. Especially for the amount of prep work it took. Note: you have to turn the breasts over halfway through cooking to get the bacon done all the way around. The first time I pulled it out of the oven I was disappointed that the bacon that had been on the bottom of the pan was still rubbery and not done. Not appetizing.

Granola Cereal Bars

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
These were pretty good. Not as healthy as some other recipes on this site, but tasty and quick. I did like how it didn't have to go in the oven and I was worried that the oatmeal would have a raw taste but it didn't. I did take the advice of some other reviews and didn't boil the mix but just got it hot. After mixing everything it seemed way to dry to I added 4 tbsp of melted butter and that helped alot. After cool and cut these tasted alot like no bake cookies.

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This was a great recipe for the end of the month out of money pantry. We always have rice so all i had to buy was 3 strips of bacon and one thick slice of ham. Added half a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and doubled the amount of rice, soy, and eggs. Was a great cheap dinner. I think I spent $6 on meat and frozen veg, had rice, eggs and soy on hand, had plenty left over for two lunches the next day so I got 6 servings out of this. Will definatly be adding this the the end of month list.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
These had great flavor! Like pumpkin pie for breakfast. I tried the apple syrup and it made the kitchen smell awesome. I only had cheap apple juice, I'm sure it would be much better with true apple cider. I followed the syrup instructions but it never thickened up. Still tasty though. My boyfriend thought they had good flavor but turned out soggy.
