Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole
I've made this a few times now and think I've perfected it solely on how my family likes things. Its a great starter recipe that's easy to add or subtract things. I used 8 eggs, increased the mustard powder to 2 tsp. (Don't skip the mustard powder, you'd be surprised what a nice flavor it adds!)After going strictly by the recipe the first time, I had to try the garlic&cheddar croutons instead after reading several of the reviews suggesting it. WOW! Never will go back to basic bread with the recipe again! My kids love it for special holidays and since it's only 3 days away, they are making sure I'm going to serve it this Christmas too. It's so nice to get up and pop a casserole into the oven and have it filling the house with its wonderful aroma while we relax and open presents. Thanks so much for sharing this!

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin
One of the best meals we have had in ages! Instead of the tenderloin, as some of the other reviewers suggested, I use a fresh pork roast, so increased the cook time, keeping a close eye on the meat thermometer. It was so unbelievably easy! Some reviews said it was too much wine, but I honestly think that comes down to your own flavor preference, because I actually used more, basting the roast three or four times by pouring a little more over the top while it cooked. And the only thing I would change is to use even more because serving 3 big guys that loved this gravy made it not go very far! I inserted 3 cloves of garlic inside the roast and that just complemented the whole flavor. Once that meat thermometer hit 160 I took it out and it was absolutely the most tender juiciest roast I've ever had. I did sear it in oil and some garlic powder before cooking so it would be browned. Loved this so much and my guys are asking when I'm going to make it again. Thank you so much for sharing!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs
I only rate this a 3 because while it was good, I found it no better than what I've been doing for years, putting ribs in the crockpot with bottled barbeque sauces. So if just doing the extra work and creating your own sauce is what gives you pleasure, then this recipe is definitely flavorful. But I won't repeat it, especially when in my opinion, you can pick your own favorite bbq sauce and pour it over the ribs and forget about it. The one tip I did take away was to brown them in the oven before putting them in the crock pot. Much less grease, so that made me happy!
