Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
This is a wonderful recipe! Good enough for a company dinner. I basically took some of the other suggestions and made them my own. One suggestion is to use boneless pork chops and then to cut all visible fat from them prior to cooking them. The chops become so tender that they do fall right off the bone. Then you are left with all these little bone fragments in the sauce along with the fat that has detached from the meat. Next time I will take care of that in advance by using boneless chops and cutting off fat first. I too seasoned chops. I used Santa Maria Style Seasoning which is just salt, pepper, garlic, and parsley. Then I dredged the chops in flour that I seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and paprika. Lightly fried them on each side in a combo of olive oil/butter. Boiled my water and disolved the chicken cube and then added one can cream of mushroom soup to chicken broth. Heated and stirred until creamy. I sliced my onion and sauted it in the pan juices where I had fried the chops after I removed them to the crock pot. Then added the softened onions to the chicken/mushroom soup mixture and stirred until creamy. I then poured the chicken broth/mushroom soup/ onion mixture over the chops in the crock pot and cooked it on low for about 7 hours. They were probably done after about 5 hours. Served over rice. Delicious!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Made this for Christmas morning and got pretty good reviews. I used sage sausage and the family thought that the sage flavor was a bit overpowering. Next time I will use regular sausage or the Maple flavored that so many other reviewers recommended. I increased the eggs to 6 and used half and half instead of the milk and then only used 1 cup. I sauteed an onion in with the sausage. The dish was very easy to put together and cook up beautifully. Will be making this again but will make above mentioned changes and perhaps add the cayenne and red and green peppers for more flavor. We all agreed that salsa would have been a nice addition to have on the side with it.

Creamy Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Made this last night for company, and although I enjoyed it, I didn't get the rave reviews I was expecting for the amount of time it took to prepare it. You need to allow more time than the recipe indicates. I used skim milk and Aborio rice but otherwise followed the recipe exactly as printed. The flavor was good if a little bland for my palate and the next time I make it (yes, I will make it again) I will include more garlic and other seasonings to spice it up a little bit. It was pretty sticky and I have to agree with other reviewers who thought it had the consistancy of oatmeal. Still, I thought it had a good flavor and would be a good starting point for my next Risotto attempt.

Wonderful Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
My family really liked this and they don't care for meatloaf all that much. I will definately be making this again. The only problem I had was that it was very, very moist. To the point that it wouldn't hold its shape. I could not get it out of the pan without it literally falling apart. I don't know if I needed to let it set a little while after taking it out of the smelled really good and the kids were starving so waiting was not an option this time around. It didn't really matter because they mixed it up with the mashed potatoes anyway. The problem could have also been that the rice was too moist. Next time I will also make sure that they rice is very firm prior to adding it. Still, all in all a great dish.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
I made these cookies one weekend during a 6 week long chocolate chip cookie contest that I was conducting. Each weekend I would make a batch of cookies using a different recipe and then ask all the teenages who come over to our house on Sundays after church to rate the cookies. Of course, teens like all cookies but these were the clear favorites.

Ranch-Style Party Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2003
This was great! Made it for a group of women I had over for a jewelry party and they loved it. It makes a hugh amount so you might want to scale it down unless you have a big group to feed.
