Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2015
Great flavor in the sauce. Doubled it for four boneless chops approx. 1/2 inch thick. Cooked 30 mins. covered on one side and positioned on a bed of sliced onions, then 15 minutes on the other side, with a finish of 5 minutes under the broiler. This was 50 mins. of cooking and too long. Good, but dry. I'll definitely make again, but will adjust the cooking time. The onions were amazing with the soaked up sauce. Great recipe! Four stars due to instructions on marinade, cover/uncover, and cook time.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2015
Son and niece liked the cookies. My husband said there's an aftertaste. I could taste it too; like a grease flavor. I won't make these again. The oil/grease flavor is just a turn off. I'm still searching for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe for my family.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2015
Very good. Definitely takes the prep time it says. It was too sweet for three out of four of us, and I could distinctly taste the ketchup. I'll likely make it again, but will have to make some tweaks such as less sugar, less ketchup, and make the sauce thicker. The pork by itself was delicious; I snuck a few of the pieces while making the sauce!

Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2015
Great recipe which I will definitely remake. Did not add the sugar. I increased the half and half. Didn't have enough flavor, so added some garlic salt, regular salt, and pepper to taste. Didn't use a mixer. Next time I will try milk instead, along with other changes. Really easy to prepare and directions are well written. Thank you very much!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
This was a good base recipe. It needed a bit more flavor for us. I'm sure it's wonderful for introducing to kids, and it was truly simple to prepare. Thank you Alyson for a good base recipe I can use to make my own.

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2014
Fantastic. I did increase the chicken broth to about 2 1/4 cups so it wouldn't be so thick, per other reviews. I'll go to 2 1/2 next time, as it was still pretty thick. I also added more turkey and salt. Truly wonderful flavor. My husband, who didn't think he'd like it, went back for seconds. Definitely a new favorite, and a must for leftover Thanksgiving turkey (which I'd previously frozen).

Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
Finally! I can make mashed potatoes that everyone raves about! It was great to not bring out or clean up a mixer. I needed to watch the video also, as the technique shown make a big difference. I also warmed my milk (used part 1% and part half and half). Loved the white pepper in there. Thank you Chef John!

Slow Cooker, Easy Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
This was delicious! Family says this is a keeper. I had medium to large size red potatoes and decided to do my best with this subjective quantity; I think this is why the reviews vary so much on taste. Here's what I did: I used about 8 med to large reds (3 lbs), chopped in 1/4" to 1/2" cubes. These filled a 4 quart oval crock pot to just about 1" from the top. After adding remaining ingredients, there was still about 3/4" from the top. I changed ingredients to: 6 tbsp flour, 1 c crumbled real bacon, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 oz. packet ranch dressing mix, 4 tsp parsley, 2 tsp seasoned salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 5 c water and 2 c half and half. Kept rest of ingredients same as original 4 serving recipe. This combination was not too salty for any of us. Only thing I added was more black pepper on top to serve, then topped with shredded cheddar, a dollop of sour cream (made huge difference) and green onion. This was perfect for 5 persons and was served with rolls. No leftovers! Prep time was a exactly 30 minutes; I cooked on low for about 10 hours (time away for work).

Elnora's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
I loved how quick and easy this recipe was. Taste was great! Crust could have had more crisp texture for my preference, but family enjoyed it. I added cinnamon by sprinkling on top of peaches along with sugar. Will make again.

Taco Dip II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
Made this for a family BBQ yesterday and everyone loved it. I had an old recipe I was trying to replicate and this is the closest I've found to it. Will definitely make again and again. I used left over carnitas instead of hamburger and it was a delicious change. Will use either in the future. I used a bit more cheese and sour cream than suggested; personal preference. I left out chopped tomato and jalapeño due to guest preferences, but will add in future for just our family. Really great recipe; thank you! Goes great with homemade pico!

Quick and Easy Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
Loved this recipe. Making again today for a family BBQ. We just added toppings we like (cheese, bacon bits, sour cream, and green onion) right on top, then picked up and enjoyed! Good recipe for a young cook too.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
Very good basic recipe and had all ingredients on hand. This will be a family staple on Mexican food nights. I may tweak in the future to add a bit more spice and heat, but this truly was great as is. Thank you for the recipe.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
Our family loved this recipe. Followed the recipe exactly, except I increased to 1/4 diced onion and added one cube of chicken bouillon in addition to chicken broth, as I was concerned about having enough flavor. We like lots of flavor! I did brown the onions and the rice very well. I used Pace Chunky salsa with medium heat. I will make this again and again! Thank you very much for sharing.

Simple Baked Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
Good recipe in a pinch. I would definitely make again. I sautéed the onions first, added beans and heated for about 30 more minutes on the stovetop. I also added real bacon crumbles to give it more bacon and flavor. I loved the flavor and the family enjoyed it as well. Had to tweak ingredients a bit to suite our tastes, but really appreciate this recipe to work with!

Simple Roasted Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Finally, my family likes butternut squash; thanks to this recipe. I did cook longer to caramelize a bit more. That makes the texture so much more like home potatoes and gives the outside a little crunch. I think I put too much olive oil (didn't measure) because I could taste it more than I wanted. The recipe amount would have been perfect. Will definitely fix next time.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Okay; everyone LOVED this recipe. Even the picky eaters. The lime juice makes a big difference. I thawed the cubes of juice I had left from my lime tree from summer juicing. I agree with others in that more spices is better; about 50% more. I basically rubbed it on. It's best to dry the chicken a bit too by using paper towels if it's in juice from thawing or package. Addition: made second time and had to check to make sure I gave it 5 stars. OMG! Best chicken recipe! We love the flavors so much! Drizzling extra juice onto rice served with it is wonderful.

Spicy Orange Chicken Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Very good recipe. Almost a little too sweet and needed a bit more tang or orange sour flavor. I made three recipes from this site, and while we liked all, this was the least favorite.

Easy Shrimp Vegetable Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Loved this recipe and how easy it was to make. I made my usual white rice (preferred and wouldn't think of microwaving my rice). Amazingly had all ingredients on hand. The only thing that would have made it better was more spice. We like a lot of flavor and some heat. Next time I'll add the ginger and chili paste as others recommended. Thank you very much for this wonderful recipe! We all agreed it's a keeper.
