Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Yum! Used 2 1/2lb loin. Doubled sauce except sugar. Used brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and low sodium soy sauce. Also added a few squirts of honey to sauce. Only basted once, then served the rest of the sauce on the side. Can't wait to try the sauce on chicken. . . Pot stickers. . . Egg rolls. . . Very good!

Dried Beef Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I have made this several times. I am sure this is terrible for you, but sooo good. I usually use 4 oz of beef, b/c that is = to 2 packages of the Buddig Beef. I usually just chop all the beef and mix it in and then just serve the mixture in a bowl instead of rolling into a ball. . . Unless I am trying to be fancy. :) I always try to make ahead, b/c it is much better when the flavors have time to meld. We love it w/ Triscuits and Ritz. Thanks for a great recipe!

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
Halved the butter, but kept other measurements the same. Omitted paprika. Did the 1tsp garlic powder + 1/2tsp kosher salt instead of 1T garlic salt per other reviews. Will never buy frozen garlic bread again. This was soooo good spread on warm crusty bread! Thanks for a wonderful alternative to the store bought stuff!!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
We triple the recipe for a family of 5 (3 small children). That gives us leftovers, but we are happy about that. No more box mix for us. I left out the butter. Great recipe!

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
I will never scramble eggs on the stovetop again! So easy. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 b/c of the butter/salt content. Just not necessary. I sprayed pan w/ canola oil and used 1/2 tsp salt. Everyone can add salt, pepper, . . . to their individual plates. Thanks for a great method of scrambling eggs!

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Sooo good!. . But, 24 oz of pasta and 1c butter is too much! I halved the butter and I would still use less next time. We used about 12-16 oz of pasta. Subbed minced garlic (1T?) for garlic salt. Used onlly parm cheese b/c that is what I had on hand. Finished off w/ fresh ground pepper and parsley. Very good. Will definitely be our only alredo recipe we use! Thanks!

Knudsen Hot Broccoli Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I was looking for a recipe to use up some fresh broccoli. I used the florets from 3 stalks. Microwaved broccoli for 3ish minutes. Chopped and used ranch powder (4T) instead of italian dressing b/c that is what I had on hand. Definitely think the broccoli should be a little pre-cooked and chopped well. Delish! I made a day ahead to taste and make sure it was good. Then, put in mini crock-pot the next day and served at small get-together. Served w/ pita chips and tortilla chips. I think it would be good w/ any # of dippers. Will definitely make again. Thanks!

Plum-Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
4 stars for the idea, but I think the measurements are way off. . . I used roughly 3 lbs. of plums, no water, 2T brown sugar (I cannot imagine using 3 c of any kind of sugar - and I loooove sweets!), 1T cinnamon, and kept the other spices the same. Added 1/4c raisins and 1/4c of craisins. Cooked in slow cooker. Planned on using stick blender to make the butter, but just ended up serving as is, as a side dish. We ate all of it! Thanks for a great idea!

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Followed other suggestions and did not brown the meat. Threw it in crock and sprinkled w/ some Weber Steak n' Chop seasoning. Topped w/ the tomatoes and a chopped yellow and orange bell pepper. Whisked the 1/4c flour in w/ the juice from the 2 cans of tomatoes, worcestershire, brown sugar, and a packet of Lipton onion soup mix. Easy and delish. Thanks!

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Love this concept. Have made these twice. Added chopped onion when browning the meat. One of the local grocery stores sells slider buns, so when I am shopping there, I buy those. Otherwise I use regular dinner rolls. Just be very careful w/ the time and do not use the cookie sheet, b/c they burn easily. I always make these ahead and bake when we are ready to eat. I am going to try making w/ different variations - buffalo chicken w/ ground chicken, or beef w/ ranch dressing mix instead of onion soup (kids complained about the onion - but still ate it). Thanks for a great recipe!

Pumpkin Waffles with Apple-Cranberry Relish

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Good idea, but needs more spice. I only made the waffles, so can't rate the relish. Used brown sugar instead of white and used mixture of all-purpose and white whole wheat flour. The main thing is that I doubled the spices (actually, quadrupled for a double recipe) and added Hershey's Cinnamon Chips. As written, I think the waffles would be very bland. Maybe that's why the relish is listed with it.?. I would defintely recommend at least doubling the spices. Made extra and froze them. We just pop them in the toaster on busy mornings. Kids love them. Thanks for the idea!

Chex® Muddy Buddies® -- Gluten Free!

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
Love these! I made them w/ 5c Corn Chex and 4c Cheerios, b/c that is what I had on hand. Also just mixed in large bowl, b/c I did not have a large enough bag. Worked fine that way. Sinful!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
We are diehard chocolate chip cookie fans in this house. . . I made these cookies and my husband said, "I think these are my favorite cookies you have made!" I subbed vanilla extract for brandy. Sometimes I sub SmartBalance baking sticks for the butter. Either way, these are delicious!! I have made these several times. I am not sure you can go wrong with the craisin/white chocolate combo. Thanks!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Used 1/4 brown sugar and 1/4 of white sugar. Replaced butter w/ 1/2 c of applesauce. Used white whole wheat flour. Made the topping and added w/ 5 minutes left (per other reviews). Next time I will use less sugar in the topping and add it 1/2way through cooking time. I will also use this topping with other muffin recipes. Thanks for a delicious muffin recipe!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
Very good! In an effort to be a little more healthy, I made the following changes. . . Reduced sugar a little (used 1/2 brown & 1/2 white). Used 1/2 canola oil & 1/2 applesauce. Used 1/2 all purpose flour and 1/2 white whole wheat flour. Doubled cinnamon and added a little vanilla. I think it still could have used more cinnamon and other spices. Sprinkled tops w/ turbinado sugar - Yum! Baked mini-loaves for 30 min. & they were perfectly done. Thanks for a nice pumpkin bread recipe! UPDATE: This time I made the full recipe. Used whole 29oz can of pumpkin. Used 1 1/2c of white sugar and 1 1/2c of brown sugar. Added 2 T vanilla. Used 2/14c all purpose flour and 2 1/2c of white whole wheat flour. 2 heaping T of cinnamon and about 2tsp or so each of cloves and nutmeg. Definitely needs more spices than it has in original recipe. Also still used 1/2 canola oil and 1/2 unsweetened applesauce. The consistency and spice was perfect w/ the changes. This is the best pumpkin bread recipe!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Not a fan of scones, but these were delish!! I omitted raisins and added a generous 1/3 c of craisins and 1/3 c white choc. chips. Also added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Used fat free sour cream. Didn't freeze butter. Baked on baking stone for 20 minutes or so. . . Perfect!!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Delicious! I have made w/ butter and Smart Balance baking sticks. Cookies were delicious both ways. Cooked about 10 minutes or so on a baking stone (used a cookie scoop, so my cookies were a little on the large side). Cookies were crispy outside and chewy inside. Perfect texture! I used a little extra vanilla and swapped some of the white sugar for brown (just a personal preference). Thanks for a great & easy recipe!
