Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2004
This was awesome. I accidently forgot the garlic powder, but that was OK... I cooked mine on high for 3 hrs and it was perfect. It would have been better to double the juice so that the entire meat was submerged... the top part (not in the juice) was a little on the dry side and the part that sat in the juice the whole time was divine. I also did a gravy with the juice and some cornstarch. Next time I will reduce the amount of sugar, too. I'm afraid this is going to be a weekly meal..... YUM!!!!!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2004
I did a lot of modifying on this one. I added pork, brocolli, carrots, and mushrooms, all of which I recommend. I used Red Pepper and chili powder instead of chili paste. I used spaghetti noodles instead of Udon (but not necessarily "recommended" if you ask me). In my case, there wasn't enough sauce, and I would prefer it to be thicker. It tasted "good" but it was missing something... I think it wasn't quite sweet enough or something. I will have to play with it; will definitely make it again but with some modifications.

Korean Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
this was great!! I used the same amount of "stuff" but with just three boneless chicken breasts. Also left out the MSG and didn't really crush the sesame seeds. My husband is Korean (I'm not) and he said "this really tastes Korean... but I don't know why!" REALLY yummy. I might make even more sauce next time to pour over the rice.

Spicy Pork Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
I thought this was great. I loved the flavor. I didn't have chili oil so used red pepper flakes instead. I just about tripled the "sauce" (lime juice etc) but only used 1.5 chili peppers. I didn't have the snap peas, but did have broccoli and mushrooms so I included those. This is for sure a keeper!!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2004
This was tasty. I tried to make a taco sauce out of taco seasoning and water (since that's what I had), and also used mostly corn tortillas since I only had one flour tortilla. I probably won't do that again! The flour tortilla ones were much better, I thought. This is a rather low rating from my house, but I will definitely keep this in the rotating recipes because it is fun and different.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2004
used plain canned tomatoes and added fresh diced jalapenos. It was great... except I burned the bottom because I left it turned up too high when it was simmering. Whoops! But yummy!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2004
i was skeptical because I don't like cream of mushroom soup, but I ended up using it (my husband loves it) and it tasted great. Only had jack cheese (yum!) and added chopped olives (yumyum!)

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2004
I only gave it three stars because of what happened, NOT because of the taste. Oh, it was divine! I would agree with another reviewer, double the recipe for more than 3 people. Also, HIGHLY recommend grating, not cubing the cheese. I did mine on the stove then transferred to the fondue pot, but once it sat for just a little bit it got very very clumpy. I tossed it back on the stove and added more wine, and although it melted a little bit, eventually I just gave up, put it back on the table and handed out spoons. Everyone was goodnatured about it. Sounds like I was the one who did something wrong, though, because so many others have had success. I served with green and red bell peppers, mushrooms, slightly steamed broccoli (to take out the super-crunch), and LOTS of bread. Definitely a winner... in the Flavor category! :)

Fudgy Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2004
I would give this 20 stars if I could. This was GREAT! It made a LOT, though... well, it would probably be about right for 5-7 people. This was super easy and super yummy. I served it with pound cake, apples, strawberries, maraschino cherries, and forgot to serve the banana! whoops! :)

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2004
tastes a bit more like cake than anything else. I added some lemon juice, I think that was good. I think it could have used more blueberries, though. I made mini muffins and that was a fun alternative. I don't know that I would go to the effort to make these again, though.... I liked them better the 2nd day, hubby liked them better the first. Who knows. I am still on the quest for the ultimate muffin recipe.

Linda's Fake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
I liked the idea of this recipe... but had to substitute so maybe it didn't taste quite right. Used 1.5 cups of bread crumbs (no corn flakes on hand) and they weren't all seasoned. I think the *seasoned* part of "bread crumbs" is important, flavor-wise. My husband raved about the chicken itself (I used drumsticks) But the coating was kind of bland.

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
I agree, cut the zucchini pieces small! I used a sausage spaghetti sauce, so satisfied my need for a bit of meat. Also used slices of fresh mozarella and ciabatta rolls, cooked in the toaster oven, without foil. I really enjoyed them, but maybe I went a little overboard on the red pepper - they were spicy!

Mocha Coffee Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I liked a little additional coffee. After making the recipe as stated, I scaled it for about 16 and was able to use up most of the rest of the ingredients I bought. yay!

Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
I'm glad I didn't read any reviews first or I might have been scared away. GLAD I WASN'T! I halved everything in the recipe to feed fewer ~ I thought they turned out great but I had to add a little more milk to thin them out since I like thinner pancakes. I'm not sure why so many people feel they need to modify this recipe... I think you should take them at face value. With whole wheat flour and no sugar, this recipe will only appeal to a few people. Our family was one. Everyone devoured them! I didn't make the brown sugar glaze but if I did I sure wouldn't want sugar in the cakes PLUS this glaze on top.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Love the flavor of these. That was even after reading the reviews and realizing I TOTALLY messed up the recipe. I completely left out the white flour and instead used only a total of 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (on accident). Gee! Anyway, on purpose I Left out the oil and used a total of 3/4 cup flax meal. I DEFINITELY needed cooking spray on the waffle iron to make sure they released, and took a "long" time to cook. YUM!!! Maybe I will try it again the "right" way and see if they are even better. LOL.

Best Ever Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I thought this was GREAT! I did add some herbs ~ oregano, lawry's seasoned salt, a little basil... Also had to sub tomato sauce for juice and I was happy. Oh! The best part was a single layer of bacon over the top ~ added just enough extra flavor!

Tuna Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
I only gave this 4 stars because, honestly, who loves tuna casserole?? Not me. But this was a good improvement on the original. I of course only used the veggies I had on hand ~ frozen peas (run under the faucet to defrost a bit) and fresh carrots. I used 3 cans of tuna and a one pound package of pasta, keeping it at 2 cans of soup and topping with cheddar cheese only. It was a winner for all -- even if it WAS tuna casserole!! :)
