Pork Chops with Herbed Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
I also followed this recipe to the letter except I took the advice of another reviewer and used a salt-free herb seasoning in place of the paprika. Then I added two pinches of coarse Kosher salt. Two pinches because I doubled the recipe. Took it one step further and halved small white potatoes and added them into the baking pan. My husband just loved it!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Delicious and the best I've ever prepared! I substituted fresh pearl mushrooms for the canned and added them when I sauteed the onions. I also used one medium onion instead of the green onions.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
This did not work for me. I followed the directions exactly and the roast and oven were ice cold. The roast was medium rare - a little too rare - and it was very chewy/tough. The internal temp of the roast was only 110. I will never use this method again but will go back to my tried and true method for this type of beef even if it's more work. I have a 5 year old gas oven.

Chicken Gruyere with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
First I must say that I'm not a fan of any kind of smothered meats. I made this for my husband as he tried it at a restaurant and loved it; however, the restaurant recipe was a bit different and I may try it their way next time. I think there were way too many mushrooms and the onions should have been diced. I will also kick up the spices in the flour as the flavor was bland. I will also add sliced tomato on top of the chicken (restaurant recipe) before the cheese. Hubby is not a fan of tomatoes but loves them this way. Oh, and don't forget to pound the chicken! Very important!

Strawberry Dream Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I must agree with others who likened this cake to a dense pudding-like concoction. It was also sickenly sweet. I made the mistake of using the strawberry cream cheese. In retrospect, I feel the regular cream cheese would have been fine. Plus, I think the recipe would have been better without the extra egg! I'm not a fan of cake mixes so maybe that's part of my problem. I normally bake cakes from scratch. The frosting was just a mess! I had to freeze it for a couple hours and even then it just kind of glopped over the cake. Several sweet-toothed family members taste-tested it before I served it and not one of them thought much of it. I'll not be making this cake again.

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Oh my! This is an amazing mac salad recipe. My husband said it's the best macaroni salad he's ever tasted. My son loved it as well. Honestly, I was so afraid it was going to be too sweet especially when I sampled some before refridgerating. It's important that it sets overnight in the fridge. Just the right amount of sweetness with an extra kick from the onion. Delicious!!!!

Elegant Lemon Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
This reminds me of an old recipe I have made in the past. I incorporated some of the ideas from other reviewers: I made a rub of garlic powder, lemon pepper and salt; then, braised the chops in a little olive oil. Removed the chops and made the *gravy* as called for but added a little water and cornstartch. It was very good. Hubby loved it. I may try this with chicken.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Very good burger! I thought it was a bit salty but no one else complained and I'm the salt lover in the family. Still, I'll cut back the salt a bit next time. One thing: my son's grill flared like crazy from the olive oil!

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This is an old recipe frequently brought to church potlucks and found in church cookbooks. But someone at AllRecipes, please fix the ingredients! You must use a 16-20 oz. can of crushed pineapple and an entire tub of Cool Whip. Also, unless you really, really like the taste of pistacio pudding, only one (4 serving size) box is needed. When made correctly, this is a refreshingly yummy dish; however, I'm giving the recipe as written 3 stars.

Wave Your Flag Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This was really delicious! I made exactly as directed except I used Entemanns All Butter Loaf since I couldn't find the recommended pound cake. Worked just fine but used two loaves. I don't know if that's because I sliced them too thick. In any event, this receipe is easy, refreshing and just plain yummy. I did not think the topping was too rich as others did. Personal preference?
