Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This was so good!! I made this tonight for company (I doubled the recipe) and everyone raved. I think it's important to note that the root beer does not flavor the dish. It is used only to tenderize the meat. The flavor comes solely from the meat and the barbecue sauce. Those reviewers who claimed that this recipe was too sweet may have forgotten to drain the root beer before adding the barbecue sauce, or perhaps used a barbecue sauce that was too sweet. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce (our family's favorite) and it was fantastic!

Hawaiian Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I was really disappointed with this recipe. Even with the unusual combination of ingredients, I had high hopes due to the great reviews. No one in my family liked this. But...I think that's because it was very, very sweet. The best way to describe it is like a sweet and sour chili.

Cajun Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
The family and I agreed that this recipe was good, but not fantastic. It was certainly easy to prepare and smelled wonderful while cooking. The crust wouldn't brown with the aluminum foil over it, so I removed it and put it back in the oven for about 10 minutes to get it brown and flaky. I followed the recipe exactly and it made quite a bit of extra filling. I think I will serve it over biscuits for dinner tomorrow.

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
I really liked these but my husband and daughter weren't thrilled...but they did like them. They were very easy to make and took little time and effort. I will try this again in the future but may tweak it a bit with suggestions from the hubby.

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
This recipe was pretty good. I cut it in half and it came out a bit dry, but that could have been the result of halving the recipe. I'll definitely try again.

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
My husband and I really liked this. I hate reviewing after i've made modifications, but it turns out I didn't have all of the ingredients in the house like I thought I did. Instead of colby, I used a Kraft blend of 3 cheddar cheeses (it comes in a bag). I omitted the mustard and used smoked sausage instead of ham. It was really easy to make and very, very good. Next time I'll use the colby and follow the recipe exactly.

Bev's Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
It's not that this dish was bad, it's just not what I thought it would be, and that's probably my fault. I thought that the sauce would come out more like a glaze. Instead, it's pretty much boiled chicken sitting in very liquid sauce. It didn't taste bad, but no one was thrilled.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
So yummy! I received nothing but kudos on these and people couldn't stop eating them. I had to use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup margarine because I only had one stick of butter left. I also used 1 cup of milk chocolate chips and 1 cup of white chocolate chips (again...all I had in the house). Other than that, I followed the directions exactly. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Delicious!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I was a hesitant on trying a chocolate chip/peanut butter/oatmeal combination, but boy are these cookies delicious! And so easy to make too! I agree with other reviewers that 10 minutes is a perfect baking time. Thanks for sharing!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
First of all, let me just say that the crumb topping is to die for! I made a banana bread loaf instead of muffins (baked at 350 for about 45 minutes) and it was delicious. Mine came out a tad too dry but I think that's because my bananas were on the smaller side, so I would suggest using 4 small bananas or 3 large bananas. This is definitely a keeper!

Mom's Hearty Beef Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I thought this stew was the best i've ever made. The only change I made was using beef broth instead of water. I made this for company and received rave reviews. Definitely a keeper.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
YUMMY!! My husband couldn't get enough of these. I put them on a cookie sheet to get them to crisp up a bit. Next time i'll use slightly less olive oil as they were still a bit wet, but SO delicious!

Oven Fried Lemonade Chicken

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
This was ok. The lemon taste was too strong so perhaps next time i'll water it down a bit. It was incredibly easy to make.

Mom's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
Yummy! I was looking for a quick and easy macaroni and cheese recipe, and this is by far the best. I followed other reviewers advice and used 2 cans of soup, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/2 cup sour cream and sprinkled bread crumbs on the top. I was out of cheddar so I used colby/jack. My 5 year old loved it and so did I!

Carrot-Sweet Potato Mash

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Yummy!! This was soooo good! I followed the directions to the "T" except I didn't add raisins. Was super easy and quick to make, and my hubby and 5 yr old gobbled it up. Will definately add to my regular rotation of recipes.

Lemon Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Yum! This is such a great recipe! The only change I made was following other reviewers advice and I added a bit more lemon juice. It came out perfectly. I made it for Thanksgiving and it got great reviews from everyone.
