Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
All I can say is WOW. I despise beans and I think this is LOVELY. My dad says it reminds him of when he was a kid and the 'old church ladies' use to make really good beans. Which is a huge compliment.. I'm forced to make this at least once a week! Definitely worth a try, you won't be disappointed!

Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Instead of the full tablespoon of salt I used half of that, and then used 2 cups of broth instead and my family loved this. I didn't even wipe the spices off the surface or anything before serving. I commented to my dad about how some people didn't like that, and he looked at me like he'd skin me alive if I even thought of doing that! So apparently he really liked the flavors on the top.. my family was fighting to get those 'good pieces'. Needless to say, this brisket didn't last long at the table, lol.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I didn't have the chocolate chips but I did have some unsweetened chocolate. I used the equal amount of that (with a TON of added sugar to make it sweet) and ended up with it thick instead of runny but I put it over the mixture like frosting.. and despite that, this was still the best bars EVER!! I cannot wait to go to the store and get proper chips for this! I could have eaten the 'crust' all by itself!

Slow-Simmered Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I didn't have the red pepper so I used a green one, didn't have the honey or the worcestershire sauce and I thought the apples were a little weird so I kept those out too.. but I did all the rest and my family LOVED this recipe!! I hate beans but I even liked this one, I would definitely recommend trying :)

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I'm super picky about my gravy.. I loved my mashed potatoes! So I was excited to try this, and it turned out perfect!! I used all the ingredients too. I fried the onions first with some of the butter, then added the water, bouillon cubes and butter, etc and THEN I whisked in the flour. It was PERFECT!! I'm in love.. never need to make another kind of gravy again.

Simple Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
This recipe was awesome. I was a little wary because of the soy sauce but.. it was perfect!!! I didn't have the brown sugar, so I used equal amount of sugar with 1/2 tblsp. of molasses. I also added a squirt of mustard, a little bit of tobasco and red pepper.. my husband told me I'm not allowed to make any other sloppy joes :)

Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I LOVED this recipe!! I took some other reviewer's advice and added sugar instead of molasses and it turned out AWESOME! I not-so-jokingly told my husband that I could have ate this all on it's own!
