Teriyaki Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
I'm giving the recipe three stars because I had to make a lot of adjustments, but the end result was very, very good. I used pork loin roast instead of shoulder to keep down the work of having to pick all the fat out of the meat. I did cook the meat in the pineapple juice and teriyaki sauce as directed, but by the end of the cook time, the juices were clotted with fat and swimming in grease... not a very good taste in my opinion. I trashed the cooking juices and started over with the sauce (which I made from teriyaki, lime juice, brown sugar, and a little ketchup and cider vinegar). The end result was very good, lots of left overs that my husband nearly ate by himself. A premade teriyaki sauce (like Kikkoman baste & glaze) would have worked well too, but didn't have any on hand. Still worth a try if you like teriyaki pork.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
I lost my grandmother's recipe for banana nut bread, and this one seemed very similar so I tried it. WOW! I doubled the recipe to make two loaves and I'm glad that I did. I did replace half of the white sugar with brown sugar, added an extra banana (which I mashed) and doubled the nuts. Excellent recipe, definitely a keeper!

Simple Slow Cooker Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
My husband, kids and I did not care for this meatloaf at all. We all like sausage and thought it would add a spicy kick to the meatloaf, however it ended up overpowering every other flavor and tasted like a big "sausageloaf" to us. None of us could get past a couple bites. However, not wanting the waste the entire meatloaf that none of us would eat, we gave it my husband's father, who loved it and even ate it cold on sandwiches. So I guess it's good if sausage-loaf sounds good to you.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
Very yummy quiche! Next time I will definitely add more garlic and a little more salt, pepper and maybe a little hot sauce to give it more flavor. Still, a very good recipe that can easily be adjusted for personal preference.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
This is a very good and simple recipe for shrimp. I'm pretty sure the amount of coarse salt called for is to aid in crushing the garlic into a paste. The abrasive sharp edges of the salt help grind it up (thank you FoodNetwork), and I've never had to actually use a whole tablespoon. If you skip the grinding part and just mince the garlic, you could just add salt to taste.

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Thought this was a good cabbage recipe. Followed the directions exactly, except maybe I cooked mine a little longer. After reading another review somewhere, I think I may use the leftovers to make spring rolls.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
This was a really good meatloaf recipe. It held together well and had a great flavor (vs. that boring lump of meat flavor that many don't like with meatloaf). I added a ketchup & brown sugar combo to the top, which I will probably leave off next time as the BBQ didn't blend well with the flavorful meatloaf.

Roasted Cajun Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
This was a great recipe! I had all the ingredients on hand and it was fairly easy to prepare. I did dice the potatoes instead of cutting into wedges. They are slightly spicy (too spicy for my three year old) but you could adjust the amount of spice for your own preference.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
This recipe was exactly was exactly what we were looking for. I followed the directions of other reviewers and diced the onions, added a little garlic, sauteed them and made a roux and then a cheese sauce for the potatoes. I thought the dish had a great subtle flavor, complementing the main dish of our meal instead of overpowering it. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
My husband asked "what did you do different to the salmon?" when we ate this for dinner, LOL, and he really liked it. I cut the soy sauce to about 1/4 cup, used 2 Tbsp of lemon juice instead of lemon pepper and added brown sugar to taste, between 1/3 and 1/2 cup. I let it marinate overnight, baked it for about 15 minutes and then broiled it for a few more minutes. Be careful broiling though, because the sugar will burn quickly. The salmon had an almost teriyaki taste, but much better. I will definitely be making this one again.

Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This was a pretty tasty side dish. I'd suggest starting with 1 cup of milk and then gradually adding more to get the desired consistency for the sauce. I used about 1 1/2 cups. I also used fresh broccoli and cauliflower, although next time I will probably use frozen as I don't think it would have much of an effect on the final taste of the dish.

Beef Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
This was a really great recipe! I ended up using about 2 cups of beef broth instead of water, and then added an additional 2 cups of water while the stew was cooking. I added a package of beef stew seasoning for more flavor, but the end result was a little too salty for my taste. Next time, I'll use the seasoning and skip the beef broth.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
These were absolutely the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made!!!!!! I followed the directions exactly (with butter flavored shortening) and they turned out perfect. I dropped about 1/4 cup of dough per cookie, and I ended up with more like 18 cookies instead of 12 (and they were still BIG). Absolutely spectacular!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
I thought this was great! I used a pork loin, and followed the directions exactly, except that I put it on HIGH for 4 hours, thinking it wouldn't be done it time. Afterwards, it was still excellent but 4 hours on LOW would have been fine. Also, next time, I will double the ingredients to have more sauce left over. Thanks, it was fantastic! ~~And note: a lot of complaints about the recipe say that it has a strong red wine flavor... which makes sense because wine is one of the main ingredients! Be sure to pick a wine you like to drink, or you won't like the end result of the recipe. And if you don't like red wine, you probably won't like something cooked in red wine, but don't give it a bad rating. This is really one of the best meals I've ever fixed!~~

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
These really were the best sugar cookies I've ever had. Roll the dough out to about 1/2" to get the tender, soft sugar cookies. I chilled it in the refrigerator overnight and used a lot of powdered sugar to keep the dough from sticking. NOTE: the dough is very sticky! Make sure you have plenty of powdered sugar to coat the rolling surface and rolling pin to make your job easier. These cookies are spectacular, and taste just like the gourmet ones that cost way too much!

Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
These potatoes were great, way better than the ones you get in restaurants! I left out the red pepper and mushroom due to personal preference. They take some time to make, but they are worth it!

Easy Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
My mom makes a pork and sauerkraut dish that I was looking for when I found this recipe, and this one was even better! I followed the recipe almost exactly... but my pork loin was over 2 lbs, so I doubled everything except for the apple. I also added about a tsp of caraway seeds. I didn't cube the roast either, I just cut two long slits lengthwise and stuffed them with sauerkraut, then broke broke the roast up as it cooked. Excellent meal, and it was exactly what we were looking for on a cold day!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
This is an awesome recipe for peanut butter cookies. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added some milk chocolate chips to half the batch. The batter does look a little runny, but after you add the flour, it's firm enough to roll into balls. OH YEAH, only leave the cookies in the oven for about 8 minutes, then take them out and let them rest on the sheet for a few minutes before you take them off to cool them. They may not look all the way done, but trust me, they will be! If you bake them any longer (like I did with the first two batches I baked) they come out a little hard and dry (but still good with a glass of milk!)
