Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
This is by far one of the best recipes I have found on here- and one of the only ones I have not had to "tweak". I used assorted types of apples that we had from apple picking, and used the recommended amount of water as well. I did not double the topping ingredients as many people have recommended, and am glad I did not because it would have been too much for our taste. I would recommend a more tart apple, or to decrease the white sugar if you are using a sweeter apple. Serve with some real vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

Slow Cooker Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2013
I did actually make this recipe as written the first time, and I would give it 4 stars as written but 5 (to our taste) when onion is reduced by half. I have used this MANY times for boneless country style ribs and even a couple of times for a whole pork butt which I shredded for pulled pork sandwiches. For the people who are complaining it turns out greasy- are you boiling the ribs first? This step removes much of the fat. And for the people who are complaining that their beef ribs did not taste good- this is a recipe for pork!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
This recipe is such a great find! I have been making these with m leftover bananas for about a year now- my kids beg for them from time to time. So versatile, I switch things up each time I make them. I use all whole wheat flour now and brown sugar instead of white. More oats and flour may be subbed if you don't have oat bran and wheat germ. My kids don't care for walnuts, we don't miss them. I use applesauce instead of oil and an extra banana. Try a handful of mini chocolate chips instead of blueberries, or chopped apple and cinnamon... I could go on and on. Also, I keep frozen blueberries on hand and use these most of the time, no need to thaw. Thanks for the great recipe!

Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
I made this as a side with Christmas dinner so the kids would have something to eat and I think the adults enjoyed it even more! I give it 4 stars as rated because of the changes I made according to reviews. I doubled the macaroni and cheddar cheese, yet kept the same amount of milk, buter and flour and it came out perfect. The Parmesan and paprika sprinkled on top really made it out of this world, and I also added a heaping tablespoon of Dijon mustard (as all other mac and cheese recipes i've loved have always used mustard). This ones going in my recipe book!

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I have to admit that I modified the recipe a bit based on other reviews- I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, 1/2 cup red wine instead of white, and just half the sour cream with the addition of 4 ounces of cream cheese. I did use sliced top round steak and it came out very tender. The aroma in the house while this was cooking all day made everyone hungry- even my daughter and I who don't particularly care for beef! Definitely would recommend.

Cranberry Turkey

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
I made this for dinner last night- and for the ease of preparing, you could not expect a better result! The sauce was so yummy! The only addition I made was to season my turkey cutlets with a bit of salt and pepper before cooking in the pan, and then added them back into sauce for a minute before serving. Will definitely make this one again.

Grilled Turkey Burgers with Cranberry Horseradish Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I made this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic! I don't buy poultry seasoning, so I looked up a recipe on here to find out how to make some myself, then used the other suggested seasonings except that I subbed celery salt for regular salt. Also, with the sauce I halved the horseradish for my kids' sake but will try as directed next time. I had to cook indoors due to horrible thunderstorm and they still tasted fantastic!

Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I have been making my own ice cream cakes for a couple of years now. I find it easier to use round cake pans for the layers the day before. The day I am assembling the cake I set ice cream on counter for about 10 minutes to soften, then spread about one quarter of a gallon into one of the round cake pans on top of waxed paper. Put ice cream (in pan) in freezer to freeze again. I prepare a homemade chocolate ganache to ice the cake with- very rich, so I do not use chocolate ice cream. Devils food is our favorite so far for the cake. I've used cookies and cream, peanut butter cup, and mint chocolate chip for the ice cream. I suppose you really could use any combination of your favorite cake and ice cream!

April's Chicken Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
I am only giving this 3 stars because I made many of the changes suggested by others. I did marinate this chicken before cooking in soy sauce, garlic and ginger. I added an extra egg because 2 didn't look like enough. I also added peas and diced carrots which I only briefly steamed so they would be crunchy still. I did let the rice cool after cooking as so many stated and I think it made all the difference- I've had many unsuccessful attempts with fried rice before. I had to use way more soy sauce than stated in the recipe, and my husband was still adding more to his helping. Lastly, I used canola oil instead of butter, which I needed more than stated in recipe, to get rice to brown. With the changes I made we loved it!
