Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I was looking for a recipe to entice my father-in-law, who is going through chemo for advanced cancer, to eat. This did it! I left off the onions, because of the gas they generate as he has horrible problems with it and cooked it in my crockpot. I was running behind, so I browned the boneless chops and threw them in the crock while it was heating and mixed some of spices with enough applesauce to just cover them. (I salted & peppered before browning.) I only had Fuji apples, and 1 reviewer who used them did not have good results, so a quick trip to the store and I got red delicious apples. Brought them home, peeled, cored and sliced using food processor, sauted in butter, poured over the chops and then sprinkled cinnamin, cloves & nutmeg over them and let them cook. They were very tender and Dad actually ate a 2nd chop! My hubby liked them too as did everyone else. Thank you MNKENNEY for a recipe that even cancer patients with little to no appetite can enjoy and is healthy for them as well! UPDATE: I used apple cider instead of water and put all he spices and brown sugar in it and marinated in the frig. I only meant to do it for 2 hours, but something came up and it was 24 hours before I could cook it. Wow! This was soooo tender and the apple taste was all through it. I cheated and used apple pie filling instead of slicing apples myself, adding them in the last 15 minutes. They were great!

Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
After reading the reviews, I was really expecting something incredible, but it was disapointing. Maybe it was the brand of turkey gravy, but it had very little flavor. The only thing I changed was using fresh ground pepper and garlic powder since I did not have garlic pepper, otherwise I followed it exactly. My husband did eat it and said it was okay, but not anything he'd want again. I gave it 3 stars because he did eat it.

Warm Flourless Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I made this cake for my best friend who is allergic to wheat/gluten at an RV park, using ingredients found at a dollar store. They didn't have butter, so used margerine sticks and I didn't have a pan, so bought chocolate fudge frosting. Baked in a common kitchen. For something just thrown together it turned out great! My friend was not the only 1 to indulge. With all the desrts there, this 1 went super fast, even over regular cakes! I would advise diabetics to go carefully with this recipe though! I can't wait to make it with the caramel sauce.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
I have made this twice now, once using whole cranberry sauce as I didn't have the dried, and it was really good. Tonight I made with the dried, but we are cutting back on salt so I stuck some cloves in it and put in some cinnamon and then added a tablespoon brown sugar/Splenda blend and it was amazing! I think it's going to be a staple from now on. Made rice and green beans with it and needed no desert. The sauce was great over the rice too. My husband cleaned his plate in record time. It was better than a glazed ham even.

Poached Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
This was very good. I had to use the MW salad dressing as I didn't have any mayo or yogurt, but the zucchini and green onion were great with it! I had to take a star off because my husband said it didn't have enough umph to it and used his usual seasonings on top of this, but I really like how simple it was, yet tasty and light. I did squeeze some lemon into the sauce too to give it a little tartness.

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I made this exactly as stated except for baking the crust for 10 mins per another post, in my opinion, that was a mistake. I also added a small can of peaaches and since I don't have a deep pie pan, I followed another reviewer's advice and used a 10" springform pan, which worked great. The taste was excellent, but my husband suggeste using diced peaches and mixing into the crust mixture then adding the topping. Otherwise this is a great recipe..

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
This is reqlly good. I didn't have any mayonaise, so took other reviewers advice and used 1 cup plain yogurt and 1/2 cup Miracle Whip. I mixed regular mustard and dijon as didn't have enough of either, (my frig is getting kinda bare.) Used all dry herbs and this was amazing! My husband wanted more sauce. I also microwaved this as it was too hot to use the oven. 7 mins on 60% was almost perfect, then swap the middle 1's to the outside for 2 more mins and you have it quick and easy.

Slow Cooker Pork Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
This was really good, I didn't have any bell peppers as my husband doesn't care for them, but followed the recipe otherwise, using bone in chops, (found out why wanted boneless. LOL) Used baby portabellas and had no white wine so used white wine vinegar and cooking sherry. 1 other change, lots more garllic as we are garlic lovers. This was so delicious my husband even heated up the leftovers, which did freeze well, when he cooked dinner one night putting this on toast instead of pasta or rice. It was just as good on the toast. Will definetely make again.

Orange Cream Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
I have made this cake twice now, once as written and once with white cake mix as others suggested. Both times it was Super Fantastic! My husband could not get enough, my grandkids scarfed it down like water, saying it tasted like ice cream. I put the manderin oranges on top and with the white cake, saved the syrup from the oranges and used it in place of water in the cake. I did add extra orange extract for my personal taste, but can't really find anything to fault in this. It is fast becoming a family favorite I'll take to church and family functions for years.Update, I learned 1 thing, put the jello over it slooowly so it will have more of a chance to soak in rather than most going around the edges to the bottom of the cake, which is still good anyway! Also, I did this from memory last night and forgot the vanilla extract, but no one could tell the difference. I just can not tell how good this is, my husand and grandkids would eat this every day and beg me to make it constantly. It tastes great with the orange and the white cake mixes. I like to switch up on them.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I am a 1st time bread maker. I had made biscuits, but no yeast breads. I needed hamburger buns and had some yeast and decided to try making them when I read this recipe. All I can say is WOW! These are great! I actually made bread! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. Looked fantastic and tasted even better. Even passed the hubby test with flying colors, Thanks for turning this scaredy cat into a real baker!

Donna's Famous Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
This was the 1st time ever for me to make cheesecake. This was so easy and tasted great. Even my husband liked it. Will try other flavors like lemon and orange extracts as well per husband's suggestion.I made this again, as a cherry swirl. I pureed a small can of cherry pie filling in my blender, then after pouring 1/2 the batter swirled 1/2 the cherry puree over it, added the rest of the batter then added a spiral with the cherry puree pulling it outwards with a toothpick. I made it special for my father-in-law for Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, my sour cream was too strong this time and that was all you could really taste. I think it was my sour cream though, it may have been older than I thought, but it came out very lovely with no cracks. I just put a pan of water under it.

Best Ever Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
1st of all, I made cornbread in a cast iron skillet instead of muffins. I didn't have any bisquick, so I just added 2 t of baking powder and about 1/2 t salt to all purpose flour. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I had to leave for about an hour so had hubby listen for the timer & gave him instructions on what to do. Well got home and was done, what HE did though was to turn off the oven leaving cornbread in the oven while he took off for a while. To my surprise, it was done to perfection. This was the best cornbread I've ever made! Passed hubby's test as well. This will now be my cornbread recipe from now on. I may justturn off the oven and let it finish, myself next time.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
I used this for chocolate covered strawberries and it was awesome! We ran out of strawbwerries so cut up bananas to make chocolate covered bananas and they were great too. I didn't have any rum though, but was still great, hubby couldn't wait, he dipped and ate. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Btw, I used a name brand 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips, no trouble melting, just whisked them with the cream, no problem.

Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This is almost the same as my "Hashbrown Omelet" that I have cooked for years. I just browned a good amount of hashbrowns, packed them on bottom and sides making a 'crust'. I then added my crumbled bacon mixed in with my eggs, then cooked on low with a lid until eggs were set. Then added my cheese to melt. Delicious!

Tomato Spinach and Basil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
This is great! I use less onion and more garlic for our personal taste. I also use an immersion blender to deal with any chunks and the curdled milk, (though will try adding milk last per another reviewer this time.) It is husband approved and he requests it frequently. Thank you for such a great recipe!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I don't know what I did wrong, but it was too mushy instead of roasted and I think too viegery as well. took it to a church pot luck and brought almost all of it home as did not go over at all, and husband didn't like at all. I'm giving it 2 stars because it may have been my fault it was mushy.

German Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
This seemes a good, basic, potato soup, but bland. I made it once per the recipe. When I made it again, instead of a ham bone, I used ham chunks and added garlic and onion powder as well as a LOT more thyme in it. I also just used my hand mixer so it would still be chunky but creamy. I took it to a church social and it was a hit.

Hash Brown Omelet

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I used to make this all the time, but I'd pack thehashpbrowns into the skillet after lightly browning and push them up on the sides a little. I did not fold over, but cut it like a pie. You can also substitute well cooked crumbled sausage, for the bacon.
