Glenn's Marinated Pork Shoulder

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
I just made this recipe with only one change to method: I marinated the roast overnight, then cooked it in my slow cooker on low for about seven hours, with broth added for the moisture. (Our roast was 5-6 pounds.) I just woke up, and it is almost beyond fork-tender and quite yummy! Thank you!

Provincial Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
These were very, very good! I used a bit of Greek seasoning, and I added a dash of freshly ground pepper blend. Also, for added quickness, just lightly sprayed them with olive oil cooking spray. For the crumbs, I used panko and just the smallest amount of crushed french fried onions. Will make again and again, trying different combinations of seasonings and cheeses. :)

Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
This is an awesome frosting recipe for spice cakes! I used it on a banana spice cake also found on this site. I used an 8 oz block of cream cheese, and the result was a rich, creamy, slightly spiced frosting. Mmmm... I didn't even let my kids lick the bowl this time. It was MINE. :)

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
These rolls are simply amazing. They come out perfect every single time. I do not have a bread machine, so I prep the yeast in the warm water and about a Tbsp of the sugar. Then, I warm the milk and butter to about the same temp in the microwave. When the yeast is frothy, I stir in the warmed milk, butter, egg, remaining sugar, and salt. I then add in the flour, one cup at a time, kneading in the last cup by hand. Form into a ball, cover, and place in a warm spot until the dough has doubled. It takes about an hour. Then, simply proceed with the recipe from Step 2. I make these rolls at least twice a month. My kids inhale them, expecially when I serve them with gravy or honey-butter. The crescent shape is worth the extra effort, as it adds to the texture and charm of this wonderful, soft bread. Going to try them as cinnamon rolls next. Thank you for this 5 star recipe!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
This is a wonderful recipe. I have three children, ages 5, 9, and 15, with varying tastes, but this recipe was a hit with all three. Even my boyfriend who doesn't care for Mexican-style food loved this. I added a bit of jalapeno seasoning, similar to taco seasoning, and cooked the beans right in with the meat. Quick, easy, & tastes so good!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
This is a wonderful pizza crust! My whole family loves it; my 3 yr old, my 8 yr old, my 13 yr old, and my 48 yr old husband. I love it because it is easy to make and so versatile. We have homemade pizza about once a week, so I use it often. I brush the crusts lightly with butter, sprinkle with herbs, and bake them for about 5-8 minutes before I put the toppings on, and they come out just the right texture for my family. This recipe has a permanent home in my recipe book!

Chocolate Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
This frosting was just what I needed! Quick and easy to make, I had everything on hand, and it turned out perfectly! (I hate to say it, but I left out the cinnamon, too.) I was sure to add each cup of powdered sugar and tablespoon of milk one at a time to avoid consistency problems. I added a bit of extra cocoa as the recipe suggests, and it is wonderful! Reminds me of mousse. Mmmm!

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Logs

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
First, let me say that the end result is very tasty. I do not like overly sweet cookies, so these are perfect for me. I had a horrible cooking day, though. First, the dough was too delicate and sticky to roll into nice logs. Added about 1/4 cup flour. Too floury, so I added a little more sugar and another tsp. of vanilla. The dough was finally manageable and tasty. I still couldn't get pretty rolls out of them, so I made flattened rounds, about the size of vanilla wafers. I got 49 cookies of that size out of my batch. (Baked at 325 degrees for 10-11 minutes. Texture was perfect.) I half-dipped the cookies and tried to drizzle white chocolate on top. I must have a bad case of Christmas nerves, because even that went wrong. (I'm an artist and it HAD to be perfect.) So, even though I was very frustrated at the end, the cookies themselves are attractive and very good. I'll try making them again after the holidays. I'm sure I'll do better next time.

Cappuccino Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
I used this recipe last year as gifts to add to baskets of other "in-a-jar" recipes, and everyone loved it. My aunt made a special request for more this year, and I am going to let the kids make some for their teachers as well. Thank you!

Good Dog Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
I live with and breed Boston Terriers, and all three of my dogs LOVE these treats! I made them last year for my own three dogs, and I sent small batches of them to all of the people who have gotten puppies from me. Everyone said that their dogs loved them and several asked for the recipe. I am going to have to make a huge batch of them this year for all of my babies. Thank you so much for thinking of the four-footed food-lovers! (By the way, I made half beef and half chicken. They love both.)

Proper English Cottage Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
I loved this recipe! I exercised a little artistic freedom, but basically followed the recipe as it was. I did cut the cinnamon in half, just because I was nervous about it, having read the other reviews. I added some extra seasonings, including garlic and Greek seasoning, rather than just salt and pepper, and added peas. It was very flavorful. Texture was great, just had to make sure to simmer it down as instructed. I did not use a pie crust, but it would probably be just as good with one. I also used my own mashed potato recipe. My husband loved it, 12-yr-old son liked it, 6-yr-old daughter thought it was "different, but good", and my 2-yr-old daughter inhaled every morsel. I will make this again and try different variations to find one that everyone in my house can really enjoy. (Not an easy task!) Thank you!
