Kathy's Roast and Vegetables

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
I will up the number of potatoes and carrots next time I make this, because the meat-to-veggie ratio didn't seem ideal. Otherwise, delicious!

Jicama and Pineapple Salad in a Cilantro Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
I served this with a southwest marinated pork tenderloin, was a perfect combination. As a side dish, this could probably serve 8 people - I don't know if I had an unusually large jicama or something, but this made a LOT of salad!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
The cooking METHOD is 5-star, but the sauce is not going to suit most tastes. The oven step helps get rid of goop that would sit in the slow cooker. But skip the sauce as soooo many other people have described and just put the pre-browned ribs in your slow cooker with a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. Easy-peasy.

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
This seemed like it had too much liquid. I think it's possible that a longer simmering time is called for.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
Thick cut chops would be preferred, but the thinner cut of chop works fine in this recipe, you just have to keep a closer eye on it. Brine them first if you have time, then brown them briefly and simmer for only about 10-12 minutes (maybe less depending on your chop). Then remove the chops from the pan and cover in foil to keep warm. Then continue simmering the sauce for about another ten minutes to reduce it a bit.

Tomato Sausage Tart

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
2 lb of tomatoes definitely seems wildly out of proportion for a typical deep dish 9" crust (and may be why some people ended up with sogginess). For me, about 4 plum tomatoes sliced thin did the trick just fine.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
I pre-sauteed all the onion/garlic/peppers as others did - I can't imagine the texture being right without doing that. Also, this original recipe as written makes a HUGE amount of food - I had trouble finding a pot to accomodate the volume! Definitely cut in half if you are cooking a typical weeknight dinner in standard cookware. Keep it the same if you have a gigantic pot to feed a crowd at a tailgate :)

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
I used a 2-lb pork tenderloin. 1 hr at 325 was perfect, even though I forgot to sear (I included the pre-boiled potatoes in that 1 hr). This recipe's a good middle-of-the-road classic that most family members or guests would enjoy, but it didn't really knock my socks off enough for 5-stars. Pork lends itself so well to some really delicious marinades that I would probably prefer to go that route in the future.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
This recipe as written is definitely not quite right in terms of execution. If you read the comments, you'll see that changes are needed in how the eggplant is prepped, how it's baked, and how the dish is layered in order to get best results. You need to read and take notes on at least a dozen comments here just to get a decent dish. For a first-time eggplant parmesan maker like me, it was really difficult trying to figure out whose advice to follow. My advice is to search around for a recipe that is more helpful exactly as written, without needing a million modifications and input from dozens of other cooks. Next time I will look for a recipe from a pro chef.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
Easy but a bit bland. Perfect for kids who don't like things too spicy. I recommend putting some spices out when you serve your pizza so people can zest it up a bit if they prefer.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
This recipe isn't a home run as written - I feel like pork tenderloin was definitely the wrong cut here, because my meat essentially turned out kind of "mushy" once shredded and mixed with bbq sauce. The overall cooking method is great, super easy and cooks the pork nicely!

Pork Roast with Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
Outstanding! My one important caution is that 6 hours on high seems like it could be a bad idea. I set my slow cooker to low before I left for work, and about 9 hours later my 2.5-lb pork roast was fall-apart perfect!! I added couple of tbsp of brown sugar and a dash of caraway seeds to the sauerkraut. Next time I look forward to trying some of the other suggestions on here, such as throwing in some beer or apple cider.
