Southern Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
Delicous! Cooked 8 hours on low, then added 1 bottle of gourmet BBQ sauce to cook another 2 hours. Everyone agreed as good as any BBQ restaurant! Served with Waldorf salad- perfect side with sweet, creamy, and crisp taste.

April's Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Good ingredients when serving many, very basic appealing taste with adjustments made. 1 TBSP mustard for a dozen eggs, 1 tsp onion powder, 4-5 TBSP mayo. Then S & P t to taste. Kept paprika for that touch of classic color. Increased mayo needed for right consistency for decorating gun.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
Excellent taste and extremely easy preparation. Thanks! Added 1 cup Diet Rite Zero cola instead of 1-cup water (as suggested in other reviews), which gave another dimension of flavor with no extra calories or sodium. Also, I cooked for 11 hours after adding the pork chops frozen and cooked on "low" setting. Chops fell off the bone and were perfect. Will definitely make again soon!

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Outstanding!! All my coworkers agree so this review represents and extra 5 people who think it's 5-Stars-Great. Ever the skeptic, I made 1 batch with 1/4 tsp almond extract and one without. Yes, definitely include- it adds a great extra touch. The first batch I drizzled glaze, put in refrigerator to harden glaze, then stacked between sheets of waxed paper. Then I got tired (because it was midnight after all), didn't stack between waxed paper and they stuck together. Hopefully you'll learn from my mistake. Also used my magic bullet to pulse the cranberries to make that step easier- it worked well. Enjoy!

Simply the Easiest Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
This recipe is great as listed, but I had to share a recent disaster to prove how forgiving this idiot-proof recipe can be. I put in the slow cooker at 10 PM to cook for 8 hours. My plan was to let it cool, then refrigerate all day. Scoop off the fat, take remaining liquid and make a reduction on the stove. Rewarm all to serve. On this particular morning, the alarm clock failed and I ran out the door leaving the brisket to cook for a total of 14 hours. It was still good, beef was tender in juices and tasted delicious.

Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
My Super Bowl Hit- After reading reviews, I used 1 can of original Rotel tomatoes instead of tomatoes in directions, plus 1 heaping teaspoon of Penzey's Arizona Dreaming spice blend (salt free taco seasoning). I let salsa sit overnight in the refrigerator and then I added the avocado right before serving. People ate as a salsa dip, as a side salad, and luckily for me they even enjoyed with the slower cooker chicken tortilla soup (also from this website). Will make again soon and thanks for the great recipe! Oh- Used Bush’s black beans: 1 can seasoned black beans and 1 can regular black beans. Couldn’t tell a difference but had to see, right?

Chocolate Chow Mein Clusters

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
I've been making this recipe since I was 10, and it's still awesome 27 years later. I wanted to review with 2 (hopefully) helpful comments. #1- I've made with all kinds of chips, only butterscotch to look like haystacks in the Fall and only chocolate for those addicted. I believe the blend of both tastes the best, even if you have people who might not enjoy butterscotch alone. They'll be surprised by the richness of combining and enjoy too. #2- After you fall in love with this easy recipe, it's a great gift to give in a jar at Christmas. All the ingredients can be layered as listed in a 1 quart “Ball” jar and tied with ribbon. Your gift recipient doesn't have to add any ingredients extra which is a real plus. They'll fall in love with this recipe and your clever gift.

Chocolatey Peanut Pretzel Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Taste good which was the objective. I'm a huge fan on chocolate covered pretzels. These are a mouthful of flavor and that was what I wanted. However, they are extremely hard to chew so much crunchy cookie, pretzel, and peanuts all at once. Disappointed that they seemed to crumble when I was cutting them into even bars too. Next time I'll make in 8x8 square pan so cooking is more even amongst the bars. Also, I’d experiment next time with skipping the top cookie and layering bottom cookie mix, then pretzels, then chocolate chips as glue, then peanuts on top. There is another recipe where you melt a chocolate kiss on a square pretzel for 2 minutes, then squish a m&m on top and cool. That recipe might just be better to serve people and keep this messy one for home consumption.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Outstanding appetizer! I caused a party back-up with this great, fast recipe. Nobody would leave the table. Girls begging for the recipe too. I used one light cream cheese, one regular cream cheese, 2 1/2 cups of pre-shredded 2% milk cheese, plus the ranch dressing mix. Then, rolled in Hormel real bacon bits. Also, I made the night before which helped flavors marry.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
I loved this side dish and it tastes like my local restaurant's version too. After reading a lot of the reviews, I added my normal taco seasonings at the same time as the salt (I used fine ground sea salt) and cumin: 1/4 tsp of paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, Mexican oregano, and a dash of cayenne pepper. I also bought the tomato sauce they sell on the Mexican food aisle of the grocery store, which only says tomato sauce on the container but seems a bit "amped" compared to the ones on the canned tomato aisle. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Parmesan Knots

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I made it my way and got wow reviews, but appreciate the recipe for getting me started. Used premade pizza dough. Rolled dough to 1/4" thin, then cut into 1" by 6" strips which I tied into knots. Baked as directed on preheated pizza stone until done, then brushed with hot butter mixture. Last, I sprinkled with the parmesan cheese. Used 1 stick butter, crushed garlic and other herbs to make brushing mixture. Microwaved for 20 – 30 seconds to melt better and blend flavors. My failed attempts to perfect: Tried one batch using butter mixture before baking, then basting again after finished. No difference in taste with extra mixture and probably a waste of calories. Tried one batch brushing 2 minutes before finishing. No difference to final taste and a bit of hassle to baste while in oven. Tried one batch with Kraft grated parmesan and one with fresh grated parmesan. Call me crazy but the fine mixture of the Kraft parmesan actually covered more area so I liked it better. Save the good Parm for your pasta dinner.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Excellent soup. Can't stop reheating for meals, it's been my dinner for 4 nights. My "mistake" was using a 28 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes because it's what I had on hand. I was prepared to add more spices but didn't need more. I used a hand blender to smooth out chunks of tomato (my preference). I added 2 TBSP of pre-shredded Mexican cheese to my bowl before adding hot soup, and then put my tortilla shreds on top. Highly recommend cheese for added yumminess. Thanks for great recipe! ** Oops- Forgot to add I cooked the chicken breasts from raw in the slow cooker soup for 6 hours. Then shredded and added back for another 30 minutes. I see no point in cooking chicken prior to soup prep. Update- A big hit at the Super Bowl Party last night. Wanted to say that I now always use a 28 oz can of tomatoes and a 14 oz can of enchilada sauce. Remove the chicken breasts and use a hand blender to make a smooth soup. Then add back shredded chicken. I serve the soup with a tray of garnishes, which include Mexican shredded cheese, green onions, tortilla crisps, and extra raw tomato.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Delicious and easy! I made 7 recipes (all from this website) for a church coffee hour. This recipe got rave reviews and disappeared first. I hand mixed the peanut butter / graham mixture, but I wished I'd used my mixer since it got so thick. Melting the chocolate in the microwave slowly but surely was a lot easier than getting yet another pan dirty. I did let them sit too long before cutting into squares so the chocolate hardened. The directions to refrigerate for only 5 minutes, then cutting into squares would have been best. Oh, one little tip I did right. I used a 9 x 13 disposable aluminum container from the store and cut each corner when ready to serve. That way I could fold down the sides and cut into bars more easily than flipping out and trying to cut into squares. I also dipped my knife in boiling water in between cuts so the chocolate didn’t crack. Nice presentation.

Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Made three batches of a dozen eggs. All eggs have butter yellow yokes. Perfect! My poor choice to buy fresh eggs probably led to a few being hard to peel (6 of 36 were difficult. Cracking lightly before adding to ice water bath seemed to help.

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Made homemade greek dressing, like others skipping the marinated version of artichoke hearts for healthier canned version. Only used one can of olives to save a bit of fat too. Excellent salad, every bit disappeared!
