Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I'm giving this five stars for this recipe w/ modifications. I think you will really love this if you try it the way I did! I seasoned the chops w/ s,p, and garlic powder, then dredged in flour seasoned w/ pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and some Emrils all-purpose seasoning....& browned in olive oil. On the stove, I boiled the water w/ one large chicken bouillon cube, then reduced, and added one can of cream of mushroom soup. I wisked together about 4 T flour in some cold water and added it to this saice. I let this simmer a little. Poured over chops and onions in crock pot. Right before it is finished, or even after it is done, then add 8 oz. sour cream and stir around. This was tasty, creamy and great served over wide egg noodles and freshly steamed green beans sprinkled w/ lemon pepper. Hope this review helps someone. I think the blandness some complained of will be alliviated w/ the extra seasonings in the flour mixture and the cr. of mushroom soup!! Try it!

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I first tried this recipe for our heart-shaped Valentine's Day pancakes, topped with strawberries. Delicious. I made my own buttermilk (w/ either lemon juice or vinegar) and double the recipe. Tried this again this morning and lo and behold, they are just as yummy when not in the shape of hearts! Thanks for the recipe. Wholesome and delicious.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Really nice flavors in this. I up'd everything a bit, except the oil, and did add some cornstarch at the end to thicken. Everyone loved this over mashed potatoes. Makes a lovely gravy. I also added red pepper flakes to spice it up.

Asian Fire Meat

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
I am about to go down and make this for the second time. It is truly one of the most wonderful dishes I have ever made. I seemed to incorporate all of the reviewers suggestions (adding chestnuts, ginger, a bit of baking soda to tenderize, xtra carrots, cashews..plus baby corn and bean sprouts & a bit of sherry). I served over coconut jasmine rice from this site. It is just lovely.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
This was outstanding. I used 3/4 crushed Cheese It's Crackers and 1/4 breadcrumbs, instead of just breadcrumbs. Did all else according to recipe. This is wonderful served with garlic, sour cream mashed potatoes and green beans.

Emma's Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I just made these for my family this morning. Last week we tried the Classic Waffles recipe from this site, and all of us prefered this one. I did add the baking powder to the flour b/c I had no self-rising flour and it worked very well. They were crisp on the outside, fluffy and nice on the inside. We served these with sausage patties and topped with real maple syrup and cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving. We even topped it off w/ a little cool whip. I think this is the family favorite breakfast now. Thanks for sharing.

Maple Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Made this for Thanksgiving. It turned out very tender and lovely. I really didn't detect much of a maple flavor, but it just turned out very nice. I did brine the turkey the night before from a citrus brine recipe from this site... I know that makes a big difference in the juciness of the bird. I do recommend this and will likely do the same thing this Christmas.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
I have made this so many times that I thought it appropriate to finally write a review. As I have written on the top of my recipe card: This is especially wonderful! My modifications are per what I have gleaned from other reviewers and I think I have the perfect recipe. I do boil all in chicken broth (water w/ a boullion). I also add a few shakes of thyme, basil, & parsley and a shake of cayenne and use a bit of celery salt instead of salt. I don't use as much b/c the boullion is salty. I add several cloves of garlic, and 1 cup potato w/ the other veggies. The potato really does make a difference. Everyone is my family thinks this meal is such a special treat. Do try it...your family will thank you.

Cranberry, Apple, and Fresh Ginger Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
I just made this to serve with rosemary chicken the other night. It is delicious, different and so lovely with poultry. Will make again. I did as written. Don't be afraid of the minced onions and celery. It is a wonderful flavor and balance. You will love it.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
I just made this for Christmas gifts, as well as for my family. It is wonderful. Here is what I did based on reviews and it was just perfect: I doubled the recipe and this was perfect for 3 mini-loaf pans. I hand chopped the cranberries (blender is broken and don't have a food chopper), which I do recommend. Also, I added generous shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg, plus a generous splash of vanilla. Yummy!

Roasted Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I can't believe I'm just now getting around to rating and reviewing this soup. From the first time I made it, it has been my favorite. At the end of cooking, I add a pint of heavy whipping cream to give it a more creamy consistency. It is lovely. When I just made this I just used acorn and speg. squash. I also add several carrots that have been cooked till soft. You could actually add sweet potato or pumpkin to this as well. It would all work well with the flavors. Just work with what you have or what you can find. I think leeks in lieu of onions would also be very nice. I do up the curry and add a bit more cayenne and garlic. Just keep playing until you find your perfect flavor for your family. We tend to like things with a bit more kick and flavorful bite. This is great with baguette and a nice salad. Try it with the pear and roqfort cheese salad from this site (can't remember the proper name of that recipe, but it is wholly wonderful with this soup). Lastly, I much prefer this recipe room temperature, rather than heated. It is just my preference. It is also nice topped with cilantro.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I will join the throngs and say with the rest that this was the most lovely, moist, flavorful turkey ever. I can't imagine ever, ever changing my turkey recipe after this. This was even better than the maple turkey recipe on this site. Thanks for a great Christmas turkey this year.

Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Well, I was short on things to cook for dinner tonight and made this b/c I had all of the ingredients. Sometimes necessity produces the best and most unexpected things. First, I read all the reviews and made the following changes, which I recommend. I sauteed garlic w/ the onion. I also used about a cup and a half of Velveta. I boiled the potatoes for 10 or so min, then threw in 3/4 of a bag of frozen broccoli and cooked together. When cooked, I pureed exactly half of the soup, returning it to the pot for a good combination of smooth and some 'bites' of potato and broccoli, which makes for an interesting soup. Not necessary, but I happened to have a can of broccoli cheese soup, so I added that, as well as 1/2 or so of sour cream at the end. I seasoned with white pepper and a few dashes of cayenne. Served with Bisquick drop biscuits. Just yummy, if not low fat. This will be a family pleaser and a great soup to take to new mommies or someone just out of the hospital.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I made these last night to go with our roast. True, the texture is different, sort of a light, spongy inside, but truly, I must say as a "roll" lover, these are lovely. My picky family loved them, the taste and texture, and the next day they are just as good. To preclude the "sticky situation" in getting them into the muffin tins, spray a metal spoon lavishly with Pam. It helps a lot. I only added 1/4 cup extra flour to this, and they were perfect. I also did 1/2 white, 1/2 wheat, with a bit more of the white. I also replaced the shortening with melted butter. I highly recommend this, as butter is both more healthy, natural and tasty!

Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
I just made this and think it is wonderful. I will still give it 5 stars despite my additions. I doubled recipe, which I recommend for a family. Also, I used 1/2 and 1/2, doubled the vanilla, added some cinnamon and nutmeg, and cooked with a cup of raisins. I also added some cornstarch to thicken (2 t for my doubled recipe). I am sure it would still have been wonderful even without my changes, and highly recommend this recipe for a true, warm, comforting dessert. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Spiced Parsnip Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
this has been my all-time favorite soup since I discovered it on a video put out on Dr. Mercola's website. An english lady makes it step by step and calls it Curried Parsnip Soup. It stole my heart. Her only difference is instead of using cream, use about a cup of sour cream at the end and fresh ground pepper. You can also up the curry to taste. She also uses either chicken or vegetable stock exclusively. This is so wonderful...I highly encourage you to try it...and try it my way, with the sour cream. It is the best.

Fresh mint on top would be nice! NOTE: leave part of this (maybe 1/4 of it) unpureed...or at least just partially pureed. We liked having some small chunks/texture with each bite. Top w/ nutmeg!
