Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I seasoned the chops with salt, pepper & garlic before adding the sauce. Didn't have any soy so just skipped it - added a tablespoon of sweet chili sauce for some sweetness. This has a good flavor but there is way too much vegetable oil in it for my liking, I will cut that down next time and quadruple the sauce because I still could have used more. One hour was too long for the thinner cut boneless chops that I had but it still tasted good. Update 5/2/11 - Used this same arrangement on chicken breasts, letting them marinate for 2 days, it was excellent! I would advise pounding them down a little so the flavor can seep in better. We will use this again. Thank you!

London Broil for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
This was very good. The only thing I changed was adding an envelope of onion soup mix and using beef broth instead of water. The meat cooked for about 10.5 hours and it completely fell apart. The gravy was probably thick enough on it's own to get away with not adding any flour, etc, but was too salty given the changes I made. We had this with the roasted red potato with aspargras recipe also on this site. Great!

California Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Delicious! I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes with garlic, basil and oregano, chopped the tomatoes in my zyliss chopper (to eliminate the big pieces due to preference)Used a whole box of angel hair pasta (it was a little too much for the amount of sauce I made) used a blackened chicken recipe from this site and served with the feta cheese on top. It is very light and very tasty and will certainly be made many times in our house!

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
The bacon made it really salty and I ended up adding a lot of extra dressing because it got dry - but it went over very well at the church luncheon and I've had requests for it again. Thank you very much.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
This was very delicious. I'm not a huge rosemary fan so I heeded others advice and used half the amount of both that and the thyme. Used extra garlic because we like it. I cooked the potatoes for 25 minutes then added the asparagus for another 10-15 minutes before uncovering and cooking another 10 minutes. The asparagus took longer than I thought it would but it was a little tough to begin with. I used another reviewers advice and put a little Parmesan cheese on at the end and it was great. We have a few red potatoes leftover since I bought a 3lb bag and we will be having the dish again minus the asparagus before the week is over. Thanks for the great recipe!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Great! Added home made guacamole, did not add the tomato or olives. Girls at work liked it. Would like to try it with taco meat sometime. Great recipe, thank you for sharing!

Guacamole

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Thank you! I didn't think I liked guacamole till I had some home made a few weekends ago and decided maybe I just didn't like the stuff they serve at the restaurants I've had it at. I used this one as a guide, did not add cilantro (husband doesn't like it) or tomato, as the home made version I tried that I discovered i liked didn't have them in it. Was great and I used it in a 7 layer taco dip for the girls at work. I plan to tweak this to our liking and am happy to learn I do like something I thought I didn't. Thank you!

Basic Beef Stock

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I roasted the bones with tomato paste on them for one hour, then added to a pan with onion, leek, celery and carrot - brought to a boil then put in my crock pot hoping that it would still turn out. Needed to use a little more soup bones as it tasted more like vegetable broth when it got done, but it worked great for a soup the next day with leftover roast pieces, celery and angel hair pasta. It is very time consuming but it is worth it. Mine seemed fine using the crock as oposed to a stock pan all day (didn't want to babysit the stove)I let it sit in the fridge overnight and the fat was easy to skim off the top. Thank you for the help!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
This is wonderful. I have tweaked it a bit for our tastes - a little less sausage and hamburger and one extra can of tomato sauce. I also subbed fresh basil and added a little extra italian seasonings. I cook it in the crock pot and it turns out fine. I made a 4 layer lasagna with this and it is fantastic. The no boil noodles soaked for a bit worked fine for me and saved a pan on the stove. This is now our only spaghetti or lasagna sauce that we use in our house. It is great as written or with your preferences added or subtracted as well.

Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
I took a few elements from this recipe to update my usual one - My Southern raised family has always made "beans" (they don't call it soup for whatever reason)with water, bacon drippings, ham, a little sugar and salt. I don't care for carrots and celery in mine, but I did add a whole medium sized onion and most importantly - the chicken broth! I have never been able to duplicate the "simple" beans my Mom and Grandmother make (which of course theirs tastes awesome, but not mine!) Using the chicken broth took away what I always felt was the bland taste and whatever was lacking in my attempts. Sorry for the liberties with this recipe since I didn't use most of it, but for anyone else that makes them the same way I'm accustomed to, the chicken broth makes a huge difference. Comes out a little greasier but it tastes great. Thank You!

Oven Fried Potatoes II

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
Wonderful! I used about 4 medium potatoes - chopped with the fry cutter on large blade. I splashed a small amount of the lemon juice into the ziploc bag and didn't even taste it. We cooked these on 400 for about 32 minutes and they were just a little crunchy and soft in the middle, probably could have went 40 minutes for a little more crunch. Granted it's more time consuming than the frozen stuff, but it's worth it!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
Couldn't be easier and tastes great. We used this to season ground beef for taco casserole and it turned out delicious. Has a little bit of heat to it if made exactly as the recipe states. Yum! Thank you!

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
used three eggs, took me about three minutes to get it to where I wanted it, worked great. Note: Do not use a coffee cup that has a hollow handle...I didn't realize my husbands favorite Crafstman mug was a hollow handled mug (it was the right size so I grabbed it) and eggs inside the handle were not easy to clean out. Oops, live and learn. Thank you for the easy recipe, we will be using it again and again.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
Great! We used a 3.5 lb roast, put all the seasonings on the night before (including some minced garlic) cooked it in the crock all day(about 9-10 hours), removed the meat, shredded, added back to the juice in the crock and cooked for another hour, adding some sliced onions, green and red pepper, and some juice from the jar of banana peppers. After it was done simmering we lightly buttered some hoagie buns, broiled them in the oven, added the meat and some asiago-mozzarella cheese (suggested by another reviewer) broiled for another few minutes and then added toppings as desired (I used banana peppers and a couple of jalapeños). Mine seemed ok with only one packet of Italian dressing mix, though I don't think adding the other would have hurt it any. 1 can of beef broth was plenty and we had a lot of liquid to spare. Husband reported it was better the second day, and he had to get out plastic spoons and let his coworkers have a taste. We will certainly add this to the rotation, thank you very much!

Oven Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Great base recipe. I changed things due to preference - seasoned the ribs with salt, pepper, garlic, dry mustard, cumin, paprika and red pepper. My husband seared the rack of ribs on the grill for 10 minutes each side, then I put them into the oven for 2 hours wrapped in foil, removed and added sweet baby rays bbq sauce mixed with horseradish and cooked for another hour. Very easy to do in the oven and I appreciate the help because I had no idea how to prepare ribs in the house! :)

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
This didn't turn out very well for me. Maybe I messed it up because I cooked it all day in the crock pot (just not enough time at night after work to do it as written)The meatballs cooking directly in the sauce made it VERY greasy and I didn't like the texture of the meatballs, either. The taste was pretty bland even after adding extra spices and sugar. Edible, but not something I'd make again.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
I gave it a 4 since I changed a lot. Couldn't find some of the ingredients, so I used: 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chili's, half a can of additional diced green chili's, half a can of enchilada sauce, some green Ortega sauce in addition to the cilantro. I used "half" a bunch of cilantro and it was still way too overpowering for me, but my husband liked it. Boiled the chicken breasts with onion and garlic using another reviewers suggestion, and seasoned with a little taco seasoning since I had a half packet to use. Cheddar cheese over the top and served with sour cream. Husband reported this was better the second day leftover in his lunch, the flavors mixed together really well overnight and he liked it even better that way. The sour cream mixture is good on tortilla chips too :)
