Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This was excellent! Only changes I made were: Used 2 8oz bags of Kraft cheese crumbles - 3 cheese blend, shook some garlic powder in and used a whole box of seashell pasta. It was perfect!

Pork Chops with Apple Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
This was absolutely delicious!! I used the crock pot on low for 6-7 hours. I browned the onion and apple first and then added to the crock pot. Edit: I've made this many times and I've found I like it best when I also make the pork chops on top of the stove, adding the apple mixture to it after I've cooked that separately. I love the curry taste too, so I always add more. My family raves over this! Thanks for the recipe!

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I have been making this for years and never wrote a review...well, it's about time! This is, by far, my favorite chicken noodle soup. I always add almost a whole bag of baby carrots, after cutting them in half. I also add the noodles during the boiling stage. I use a total of 20 cups of chicken broth and a whole bag of egg noodles. Also shake in some pepper. I don't put in any additional salt. I get a rotisserie chicken from Costco and rip it apart and add that. They have the best chickens! That's it - fabulous soup!

Orange Cornish Hen for Two

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
This was delicious! I made as is, except I made 2 hens, so doubled everything. I also cooked about 10 minutes more than stated since I had 2 hens and it was perfect. Thanks for a yummy and easy recipe!

Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I would give this cake 10 stars! Wow! I have never made pound cake before, but wanted to try it. I won't ever search for another recipe. The only change I made was adding 2 teaspoons of vanilla. It was the best pound cake I have ever had (don't tell my mom!). Since it makes 3 loaves, next time I will try to add some small chocolate chips to one, as I think that would be good too. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe! This is definitely one of my new favorites on this site.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
This is really great and different! Not your typical pork. I made exactly as written and everyone loved it. Came out moist and very flavorful. This one is a keeper!

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This was excellent!!! A few minor changes. First - I never use imitation crab meat - blech. Only real crab meat will do. I sauteed the chopped mushroom stems and some garlic and then added to the stuffing mixture. I also used green onion and mixed that into the stuffing mix. Lastly, being from the east coast, crab ALWAYS has to go with Old Bay, so I sprinkled about 3 generous shakes into the mixture. Oh - and I topped with a pinch of locotelli cheese. Perfecto!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
This would get more than 5 stars! YUM! I followed the other reviewers and cut up the chicken into bite-sized pieces and dredged in flour before browning. I doubled the sauce and it was perfect served over rice. I used sriracha chili sauce. I also sauteed a small onion and threw it in while the whole pot simmered. Plenty sticky and plenty GOOD! This one is a keeper! NOTE: THIS DOES NOT NEED ANY SALT! I used low-sodium soy sauce and it was just perfect with no salt. If I added salt, it would have been too much!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
This is one of my favorite work-week dinners! I have made this many, many times and it nearly impossible to mess it up. I've made it with and without the aluminum at the bottom and have noticed no difference, so you can really do it without. The key here is to add whatever seasonings you like! I always put onion in the cavity and celery, if I have it on-hand. I've also added cut up apple before and it tasted great! I always add garlic and chicken broth too. As I said, you can really put whatever you want or have on hand in. Next time I make this, I'm going to try orange slices. Anyway you try it, I'm telling you - it will taste great and can't get much easier than this!

Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
This was delicious! Only changes I made...I doubled the sauce and added a splash of red wine. I marinated for about 4 hours. I seared in my dutch oven,removed the pork, deglazed with the marinade, put the pork back in and scooped sauce over top of it. I cooked with the lid on the dutch oven for 1 hour. That's how long it took for mine to be done. Was very good! Thanks for a great recipe! SAFETY TIP: Count the toothpicks you put in because when it's done they are kind of hidden!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
This is a home-run! I made this for a large group of teenagers and they loved it! I used a 5 lb bag of russets, peeled and cubed them. Put them all in a large bowl and tossed with olive oil and the dry ingredients. I then baked as directed. I used no butter and used seasoned salt instead of regular. After the hour was up, I mixed in a bag of shredded mixed cheddar cheese and a bottle of light ranch. I then put it all in a crock pot on warm because I was transporting it to a dinner. It was the hit of the dinner and a perfect take and go dish for a pot luck dinner. Next time I will try with a spicy ranch as someone suggested. I bet that is amazing. Thanks for a great recipe! This is a keeper!

Barbequed Steelhead Trout

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
I see many reviewers picked this up at Costco! Well, I did too. I had never heard of it and love to try new things, so picked one up. I knew allrecipes would have a recipe for it! I was happy to find this one. Wow, very, very good. I didn't have lemon juice or paprika on hand, so made it with just the other ingredients and it was delicious! I cooked in the oven in a cast iron skillet at 350 for 25 minutes total, adding the bbq the last 10 minutes. I will definitely be buying steelhead trout again. Especially because it is so cheap and so yummy! Next time I will try with the lemon and paprika, but at least I know I don't need it for it to taste good.

Leftie Overs

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This was very good and a great way to use leftovers! I had a pork roast that I made in the crock pot the day before, so I used that. Only addition I made was to pour the leftover gravy over everything during the last ten minutes. It was perfect!

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I really enjoyed this chili, although will do it differently next time. I made 2 smll changes to the original recipe. I put in 1 cup less chicken broth. It was still the consistency of soup, which was not really what I was hoping for. Next time, I will add at least 1 cup less broth. I also added a can of black beans and omitted one can of canellini beans. I drained and rinsed the beans first. I served with black bean tortilla chips. Delish!

Garlic Cajun Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
These ribs were amazing! The only change I made was omitting the salt. The cajun seasoning had salt in it already. Will definitely make again!

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
These were so delicious! I can't believe I made them! I followed others advice and lined the brownie pan with aluminum foil sprayed with Pam. This worked out wonderfully and nothing stuck. I made them in the evening and refrigerated them overnight and cut them the next morning with a pizza cutter (as another suggested). What a great idea! They were just perfect. I also omitted the chocolate icing as I don't think they really needed it. They were a great hit at a party I brought them to. Will definitely make again!

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
Excellent! I can't wait to make this again. It was a bit salty, so next time I will use beef broth instead of boullion. ADD: I've made this several times again using beef broth instead of boullion and it is the way to go. You just need to add a little bit of salt to give it some flavor.

Supreme Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
These were fantastic! I followed some of the other reviewers advice and didn't boil first, just sliced up the potatoes really thin and layered them in a casserole dish - potato layer, liquid layer, cheese layer - until all was done. I used cheddar soup in the liquid mixture. Also, instead of onion, I put in some Onion Onion from Tastefully Simple as my son wouldn't have liked big chunks of onion. It was superb! I will make this over and over!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2012
These are sooo good! I made exactly as written. The batter seems to be thinner than the boxed batter, so it cooks faster. I turned the setting down on my waffle iron on the second batch as the first batch was a little too brown. This made 2 batches for me. So, 8 individual waffles for my waffle iron. Thanks for the recipe! It's much better than the boxed stuff (and my son agrees).

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
This was really good, but mine was overcooked cooking the time stated. Next time I will bake for about 20 minutes.
