Simple Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
Excellent! A crock pot pot roast afficiando, this was my first attempt at an actual oven baked pot roast. I'm used to using quite a bit of liquid, so I wasn't too sure about this. Delicious!!!! I made a couple of minor adjustments...seasoned the meat with seasoning salt and Monterey Steak for flavor. Added sweet potato chunks and whole "new potatoes" to the veggies. (I had a 2 lb roast so there was plenty of room). Threw two whole cloves of garlic on top of the meat. The veggies melted together into the most sensational "mush", it was heavenly....the meat was juicy and tender. Definately deserves 5 stars!

Cake Mix Cookies VI

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
I have renamed this "Satan's Cookies", as Cake Mix Cookies VI really doesn't do them justice...and they are EVIL! Do NOT make these if you have no self control when it comes to warm, chocolately things with peanut butter. Best cookies I have EVER made, so easy, unbelievably good. You would never know it was from cake mix. Thank you (I think, lol) for this recipe!

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Excellent! This was a last minute "I have a tenderloin and have no idea what to do with it" kind of thing. I had all the ingredients, so I went with it. Delicious! I put the tenderloin in a ziplock bag with olive oil, seasoning salt and Italian seasoning while the oven heated. Rolled it in the bread crumbs to with I added a little parmesan cheese. Cooked it as directed, though added a tent as per others directions. Let it sit for 10 minutes and voila! Success!

Pepperoni 'n Cheese Crescents

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
5 stars for ease and taste! If you want some extra flavor without the pizza sauce, sprinkle some parmesan cheese over the top before baking. : )

Hop, Skip and Go Naked

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
WOW! Made these for New Years Eve because I had everything on hand. Good thing I ran out of vodka as I would have kept drinking and these do a sneak attack on you. Didn't have cherry vodka, used plain. Put a twist of lime in before serving. These are going into my permanent rotation...they are easy to drink without being too sweet. Thank you!!

Simple Time Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
WOW! I was looking for something different to do with some pork chops. Picked this because I had all the stuff. Really wasn't sure about it....AWESOME. FYI...I used Can't Believe It's Not Butter, light mayo and 2% sharp cheddar cheese. Really, really good. New favorite!

Great Grandma's Nut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
I had a handwritten recipe from my husbands mother for these using finely chopped walnuts. They are his favorite cookie. The first time I went by her directions and wound up with the "nut butter" the previous commenter got. Between reading this recipe and talking to a friend who bakes seriously, I got it right the second time. Two things I did wrong the first time were not combining the ingredients as indicated here (mom's handwritten recipe said "mix all ingredients...big mistake!), I overmixed it to a batter consistency instead of more of a dough, and didn't add flour when it was too loose. They are well worth the effort! My husband almost cried because he said this were "Christmas at home" for him. Thank you Kit!

Rocky Road

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
So easy it's crazy! I wouldn't bother with the stove, I used a glass bowl in the microwave. I mixed the peanut butter and chocolate chips together and used 30 second intervals with mixing. It was thoroughly melted and blended after two rounds. I forgot to grease the pan, but it's just for me anyway. Personally I smashed up some Teddy Grahams (didn't have graham crackers) and sprinkled it over the top for some crunch and a "s'mores" type taste. Yummy!

Ranch Pretzels and Goldfish

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I can't rate this yet, I haven't made it..but thank you to the person who posted it! My husband's mother made this with just goldfish when he was a kid and he loved it. She gave him a handwritten recipe but it didn't sound right to me and she can longer help (Alzheimer's). It's the baking! I knew it had to be baked, but her directions left that step out. Thank you again... I had to give it a rating, so I gave it a 5 based on my husbands love for it!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
My husband said these were the best porkchops ever! Super easy, slight modifications so I didn't have to go to the store. I used Progresso Italian breadcrumbs, lemon pepper instead of zest, and baked them on a roasting pan so they would crisp up on both sides (a suggestion by someone else). Absolutely perfectly cooked! Great recipe!

Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I am from Louisiana and this is AWESOME! Skipped the file powder because I've never eaten jambalaya with it. Added a large can of crushed tomatoes as someone said it needed it for rice, but wound up having to add extra rice because it was too soupy. No big deal, had some in the fridge. Easy and delicious!

Roasted Pork Chops with Tomatoes, Mushrooms, and Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
AWESOME! Thank you for another way to get some vegetables into my husband and he LOVED it. My modifications: 1 lb of boneless chops, 2 zucchini, 1 pkg mushrooms and 1 big tomato. Chopped up all the veggies put them in a bowl together and tossed them with olive oil, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Put them around the outside of the pan. Seasoned the chops with seasoning salt, Italian seasoning and Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb. This combo covered most of the seasonings except the red pepper which we didn't want anyway. Because I had much less meat, I cooked mine at 350 for the first 30 minutes and 425 for the last 15 to keep from overcooking. It was perfect. Served it over brown rice with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese over the top. My veggie averse husband asked me to put it in our regular rotation. Leftovers today were even better!

Heavenly Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Yummy! I used a fresh banana and plain Greek yogurt with the Silk light Vanilla. Thick and very filling! Don't bother with the sweetened yogurt, you won't miss it, and greek yogurt has more protein.

Saucy Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
The sauce is fantastic! I would not recommend cooking for over 5 hours unless you start frozen. I cooked it for right at six and I found the porkchops to be too done for me. Following the suggestions of others, I used 1 can of tomato sauce and about a half cup of ketchup to make extra sauce. I used 1 red bell pepper because I don't care for green. Absolutely thicken the sauce to go over rice, it exceeded my expectations! Delicious!

Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Last year I found this reciped as I panicked about cooking my first turkey ever, with little cooking experience. It was WONDERFUL! It gave me the confidence to become a decent cook and actually learn to enjoy it! Highly recommended for "newbies" looking for a surefire turkey.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
AWESOME and so simple. I used 3 large frozen breasts as I was cooking all day. I dumped the 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and probably three cans of low sodium chicken broth in a bowl and whisked it together with onion powder, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. I poured the mixture over the breasts and turned it to low. 7 hours later, I cut one can of Grands Homestyle biscuits into fours and dropped them in, covered them up with sauce and left. Two hours later, I turned it to warm, shredded the chicken and mixed everything up. Absolutely fantastic. My husband who had never eaten chicken and dumplings before ate two huge bowls and we have enough for another meal. I was afraid it was going to be a waste of chicken as neither of us like "cream of..." meals as a rule but I was willing to try. So glad I did!!!

Thighs on Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
The chicken is awesome in this recipe...the rice is better than plain rice, which is why it gets four stars instead of five. My only changes were to use olive oil in place of butter as many suggested, to season the chicken with seasoning salt, and sprinkle garlic powder over the entire thing. I cooked it 55 minutes to get the rice cooked, and let it sit for 5 more. Nice on pot meal. Thanks!

Skillet Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
The four stars is more reflective of the fact that I flat out don't care for lamb to be honest, but my husband loves it. We compromised on this (he loves a huge leg of lamb crammed with chunks of garlic and cooked to death...). I used olive oil instead of vegetable, and two cloves of garlic in place of the onion. Did what others said and cut the cook time down to 20 minutes. Winner! We will actually eat lamb on occasion now in this household!

Southwestern Chicken and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Very good recipe, my husband loved it! I changed it up a little too...traded the salsa for a can of Rotel (drained), traded corn for a can of black beans (drained). If I'd had frozen corn, I probably would have left it in. I cooked my rice seperately to avoid the undercooked issue. I sprinkled the cheese with garlic powder, cumin and chili powder. The chicken was cooked PERFECT, fork tender. Put the sauce over rice. Delicious!
