Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
Wonderful!!!! I just made this last week. Pork roast was on sale for .99/lb. and decided to try it using a 4 lb. roast. I used 2 bottles of IBC root beer to cook it in. I did pierce the meat then pour the root beer over. It worked great. I cooked it on low for 8 hrs. and it fell apart. I drained the juice and then shredded and cooked another hour with BBQ sauce. Nex time I am going to use Sprecher root beer and see if the sweeter root beer makes any difference. Thanks for a quick, easy and very tasty recipe! :)

Orange Cranberry Drops

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
Very good recipe! I doubled the recipe, used the juice and zest of one orange and no extract. I put the cranberries in the orange juice/zest and let them soak for about 15 mins. and added them with the egg mixture and then the flour mixture. I made them into dough balls and froze them so I can take out what I want, when I want some. I did a quick roll in sugar and baked for 11 mins.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
** I just made these again, but used dried cranberries instead of raisins. Soaked them just like the raisins and added white chocolate chips in. Another great variation to this top notch recipe** I finally found the perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookie! I have been trying several recipes for years and this is it! The only change I made was to add an extra teaspoon of cinnamon. My family loves cinnamon. They were crispy around the edges and soft in the middle. I was able to mix the ingredients in my KitchenAid mixer. Thanks for a great recipe! **9/3/10, I wanted to add that you can freeze the dough into balls and freeze on a cookie sheet, drop into a sealable freezer bag and bake when you want . It is just as delicious this way. With just two of us, I make the recipe, freeze and bake a dozen at a time.**

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Even though I made a few changes, the overall recipe is excellent. I followed a few of the suggestions; 335 degrees for 12 minutes - perfect, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp. baking soda and 1/2 tsp. salt. I put the oats in the food processor and blended them to a coarse flour texture and used milk chocolate chips. Refrigerate for a couple of hours and they do not spread. Made them yesterday and they are still like they were after they cooled. Not rock hard. Thanks for a great recipe.

Hearty Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
Great recipe! I used chopped ham instead of sausage and left out the hot sauce and cayenne pepper (don't like it too hot) and it was was wonderful! I lost the one jambalaya recipe that I had, and this is the closest to it. Thanks!

Skinny Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
This was easy and very good. The only changes I made was to use olive oil to toss them in and sprinkled with seasoned salt and pepper before baking. I turned the oven up to 450 degrees after the 45 minute cook time and cooked an extra 10-15 minutes to crisp up.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
Forgot to add the sour cream and it was still delicious. I do agree that unless you have a really large pan, scale it back. I had to do it in 2 pans. Added a spoonful of rice to my bowl. Great. Thanks for a great recipe.

Becki's Oven Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
I went shopping for chicken wings and decided I didn't want the ones in the meat dept. Too much skin and didn't want to mess with cleaning them. I found Tyson Chicken Wing Sections in the frozen food aisle. They had a little skin on them. I cut off the excess and left the rest on. Then I decided to do what a couple of other people did by adding soy sauce (about 2T), 2/3 cup ketchup, minced garlic and chili powder (about 1T) along with the rest of the ingredients listed. I decided to cover them the first 25 minutes of cooking (lined the pan with foil first), then uncovered and turned them over and baked another 25 minutes turning one more time half way through. They fell off the bone and tasted wonderful. This was a huge hit. The only question I got was 'Is it easy to make these?'

Aunt Hazel's Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
I had apples to use and was tired of pie and wanted a good oatmeal cookie. These were really good. The only changes I made was I used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 generous teaspoon of cinnamon (I love cinnamon). I did frost them. Thank you for a great oatmeal cookie recipe.

Mexican Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
My son made this recipe for his girlfriend and we were lucky enough to be included. They were wonderful. A nice change from regular tacos. We didn't have any green chilies, so he substituted about 1/2 cup salsa instead. He doubled wrapped the rolls so they wouldn't come apart. Served with sour cream, salsa and a salad, it is a great meal.

Classic Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
My daughter wanted this cake for her 21st birthday and after looking at all of them, I decided to try it. It turned out great, my daughter loved it. The only thing I did different was since I didn't have cake flour, I sifted all purpose flour and increased the baking soda to 1 1/2 t. Thanks for the recipe.

Rotini with Chicken

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
This was a wonderful, light dish. I had to make a few changes. I couldn't find the roasted garlic rice vinegar, so I used their seasoned rice vinegar instead. I had some chicken breasts in the refrigerator that I needed to use and cut them into strips. Instead of serving on top of pasta, I mixed my bow tie pasta into the chicken mixture and served with shredded parm. cheese. Will make again.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
WOW! This was great. A nice low fat alternative to chili. The only changes I made was to use water instead of beer and added some chili powder. I shredded the chicken which I think is better. Made it before work, came home and shredded the chicken and served it an hour later. This will be a family favorite! Thanks for a great recipe.
