Mary Wynne's Crabapple Jelly

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I tried following the directions with this recipe and didn't have any luck. It just didn't set thick enough. I used the Sure-Jell pectin recipe for the second batch. My crab apples were the golf-ball dark red ones. I think my problem may have been that I used too much water to boil my crabapples in, so my juice was too watery. I followed the directions to use enough water for to see, but not to make them float, but I just don't think that's specific enough..

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
I made this exactly as written, except for how long it cooked since I had thinner pork chops (3/4") and neither my husband or I cared for it. The flavor of the breading just didn't really complement the pork. My pork chops weren't very tender, but it might have just been the cut. They weren't that easy, so next time I will probably just make shake 'n bake.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
I made some additions based on the comments. I made a rub of minced onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and rubbed that on the pork loin before searing it. After searing, I deglazed the pan with the pinot noir I was using in the rest of the recipe. I put about half of a sliced onion in the bottom of the crock pot and put the roast on top of it. I then put the rest of the ingredients called for in the crock pot. About halfway through cooking, I put in a bag of baby carrots. When it was done, I added some corn starch to the juices and made a DELICIOUS gravy. Best way I've ever made a pork loin, and I normally hate pork loin.

Apple Crisp with Oat Topping

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
I followed this as is, except added more cinnamon to the apples and topping. I thought that the topping was way too sweet, and there was too much of it. If I make it again, I will reduce the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and reduce the flour to 1/2 cup.

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
I followed this recipe, except that I used a smaller chuck roast and more veggies and potatoes. I took the advice of a fellow reviewer and used red wine to deglaze the pan, and that added a lot of flavor. I didn't have fresh or dry herbs so I omitted them but it still had flavor. My husband even liked it, so it was a win!

Danish Pastry Apple Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
I was in a hurry and didn't read the reviews, so I made it exactly as it is written. That said, it is way too tart for my taste. I used Granny Smith apples, and I should have used about 1/4 each more of sugars. I will probably make a powdered sugar glaze to make it a little sweeter so my husband will eat it. I didn't have a problem with it being runny, but my apples were pretty dry when I started. It's pretty much about the same amount of work as regular apple pie, so I will probably just make apple pie next time. It was good to try something new though. Thanks for the recipe.

Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
I tried it exactly as written, except that I added just a little more cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg and allspice. I did also have to use about 1 tsp more cornstarch to get it thicken like I wanted. I thought it turned out great. Very tasty and pretty easy.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
I tried this and it turned out pretty good, except that 3-4 hours on high totally dried my roast out. It was also a little too sweet for me. I did use balsalmic vinegar, since it was all I had, instead of red wine vinegar. I also used cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce for the same reason. Next time, I will use brown sugar, more cayenne, and no salt. I think you get plenty saltiness from the soy sauce. Overall, great starter recipe and super easy.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
I made these brownies and thought they were pretty good for non-box mix brownies. I didn't make the frosting since my husband doesn't like frosting. They taste a little cocoa-y, but they have a good texture. Not too cakey like some of the reviews said. I probably still prefer boxed mix, but these are great in a pinch.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
I made this today, with just two changes. I used light cream cheese and put a layer of fruit preserves on top of the cream cheese. I will make it again, but I will use less, if any, sugar in the cream cheese. I would also skip the butter and sugar on top. It's rich enough without it. Overall, very good as a breakfast treat.

Turkey Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I did basically what the recipe said, but I wanted it a little creamier so I used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. I also left out the water chesnuts. I had to add a lot of pepper to balance out the salt from the soy sauce. It was just okay - neither my husband or I liked it enough to make it again.

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Mine turned out sort of dry. Not sure what i did wrong, but they weren't as apple-y as I would have hoped. Still good, but not great.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
They were good rolls, but mine turned out HUGE. I would almost cut the circles into 12 or 16 wedges and then roll up. The next time I try it I might do balls and make traditional rolls instead. The flavor was good, but I expected a sweeter taste. Very easy to make though.

Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
A very good and easy meal. I halved it and used smaller tortillas and used a nacho cheese blend, but still turned out good.

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Really easy, really good. I did make the cream sauce with the chicken soup, and it was pretty good, but a little too much lemon for my tastes. Will definitely make again!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Good biscuits! I used a regular drinking glass to cut mine and I only got 5 plus a little extra dough left over.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I thought this was still awfully tough even after cooking for 8 hours. I might just not like the taste of rump roast. It might taste better with a slightly better cut of meat. It was good, but not as good as I was expecting.

Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
So good. A little more work than the average meatloaf, but worth it in the end. I just added a little salt and pepper and about a tsp of worcestershire and used seasoned bread crumbs since I didn't have cornflakes and it turned out great. I sprinkled some fresh mushrooms on the top with the bacon and cheese, and I served it with a brown gravy from a packet, substituting half the water for evaporated milk. Delish.
