Chops with Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
If I could rate this recipe 4.5, I would do so. We liked the flavor of the dish and the meat was incredibly tender. I did, however, deviate just a bit from the original (sorry to those purists who are irritated by this) by using thick cut boneless chops. Next time I will use boneless chops that are standard thickness rather than thick cut. The ratio of sauce to meat proved to be a weakness in our opinion. I drained the kraut but did not rinse it. Other than those variations, I did follow the recipe as written and it was delicious. I served the chops with mashed sweet potatoes since my daughter prefers the healthy sweet potato to a white potato.

Microwave Potato Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
This recipe is so simple I thought the resulting chips couldn't possibly be good. I was wrong! They are really quite tasty. Especially if you season according to what your craving of the moment happens to be. Today, mine was kosher salt and cracked black pepper. The only trick is to not nuke them too long at one time. I did mine for 2 minutes to begin with followed by several 30 second intervals. Then I just left them on the parchment paper until they were completely dried and cool. Yum! Even my tiny (read petite 22 year old health nut) daughter couldn't stop eating them! Simply delightful.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
This was a good starting point for a pizza sauce. However, it was too sweet for our taste. The next time, I will add the honey at the end so that I can adjust according to the sweetness of the tomato paste. I will also add more basil, oregano, marjoram and salt.

Cheeseburger Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
When I tasted this, the soup seemed to be missing something. I added about 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 1/2 tsp. dry mustard and 1 tsp. garlic powder. All in all, much better than a recipe I had and lost. It used cheddar cheese soup as the base.

Sensational Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
This sandwich was incredible!! Like some other readers, I cooked in a skillet on top of the stove. I let it simmer for about an hour. Yum!! I was concerned that the steak might not get tender, but I was wrong. I didn't add the red pepper flakes but I did use the horseradish/spicy mustard sauce. I will definitely use this recipe again and again. I think I will try it on my college-age son when he's home for spring break. He enhales steak so I know he will LOVE this sandwich. It's so easy he can make it for his team mates.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I have not had very much success baking yeast bread in the past but decided to try this recipe when my son was home from college for the weekend. It went together quickly and rose up just like it was supposed to. I had high hopes. When I took it out of the oven I glazed it with a cream cheese glaze from this site. The bread smelled amazing and the first slices were pretty good, just not excellent. It was so dry as to be almost inedible by the second day. I had wrapped it in plastic wrap and then a freezer zip lock bag. I paid attention and followed the directions as closely as possible. I'm hoping someone who is a better baker than I am will tell me what I did wrong. Now I have 2 loaves of dry bread. I think I will use the leftovers for a cinnamon raisin bread pudding.

Great recipe!! Things I will add next time - more salt, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. This is one of the easiest recipes using yeast I have ever made.
