Baked BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
I have made these twice: once followed the instructions exactly and cooked them in the oven. The other time I did the final cooking on the bbq. Both times they were absolutely fantastic. I did do the first cook in the oven for probably closer to three hours and they still held together beautifully on the barbeque.

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
I used this marinade with chicken for a stir fry. Delicious! I made the full recipe but only needed half for the three chicken breasts I used so put the other half in the fridge to use on the next thing I want to marinade! Thanks for the recipe!

Garlic-Ginger Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
These were delicious! I followed the recipe pretty much to the T except I didn't have ginger root so substituted a heaping 1/2 tsp. of ground ginger. I also didn't have Asian chile pepper sauce so I subbed Thai Chili Roasted Garlic sauce. Like some other reviewers suggested, once I had tossed the wings in the glaze, I popped them back in the oven for 5-10 mins.

My Favorite Beet Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
This was excellent; we loved it. The only change I made was to add some honey to the dressing ingredients. 1-2 Tbsp.

Mary's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2014
This meatloaf stayed together well and the topping was great, but the meatloaf itself lacked flavor. Maybe some Worcestershire to spice it up a bit. It needed something.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
Excellent! After reading some reviews I cut the pepper back to about 2 tsp. but would probably increase that to at least 1 Tbs. next time. I put just a little water in the bottom of the pan and roasted with some baby potatoes, about 1 and a half hours at 350 for a roast under two pounds. It got rave reviews.

Cross Rib Roast

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
Very good. I followed the recipe exactly except I couldn't find any golden mushroom soup at the store so I used the wild mushroom soup. I also didn't add the additional three cloves of garlic. It was very tender and the gravy was awesome. Thanks for the great recipe.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
Excellent! I followed the recipe except that I substituted roasted pecans for the almonds and added some sliced red onion and crumbled goat cheese. The dressing came out very creamy; I followed another suggestion and made it in the blender and it was quick and easy. I have enough left over for another salad! Thanks for the great recipe.

Asian Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
These were very good; moist and tender. However, I used low sodium soy sauce and still found them to be a bit on the salty side. I would reduce the amount of soy sauce next time. Other than that I followed the recipe except I bumped up the amount of garlic and chili paste. Very good recipe!

Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
I am giving this five stars as it is very close to the stuffing I make for my family. The only changes I make is to add mild Italian sausage (casings removed) and I use the drippings from the sausage, no additional butter (or very little). I like to dry out my bread cubes as well. Then I also add sage, parsley, and thyme as well as the poultry seasoning. I add to taste and have never measured it. When you put any additional stuffing into a casserole dish, place the neck of the turkey on top and then cover with foil. This will keep your stuffing moist and then you can mix that with the stuffing from the turkey. Yum, yum, yum - we love it!

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
I decided to try this as I had all of the ingredients on hand and it looked fairly easy to prepare. Only change I made was that I used brown sugar (about 3 TBS.) and used garlic cloves (2) in place of the garlic powder. This turned out so tender and YUMMY! Next time I think I will add some carrots and baby potatoes to the crock pot for a one pan meal! Thanks for the awesome recipe.

Kabob Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
Wonderful tasting marinade. I halved the recipe (except the garlic) and omitted the meat tenderizer and marinated for about 7 hours and then drained and used the thinly sliced beef in a stir fry. It was amazing but I think I would try to marinate for the full 24 hours next time. Thanks for the great recipe.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This was fantastic and it sliced up so nicely (I waited the ten minutes). I also did add some panko crumbs but next time I will try it without as mine was a little dry as a result. We really loved the recipe and will certainly be making it again. Thanks Drew.

Grilled Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
Loved this recipe. I did add a vinaigrette (with lime juice) for the dressing and additional peppers (red, yellow). This was a huge hit and great with all the corn available this time of year.
