Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
This was great and so easy and simple. I followed the recipe exactly except for using 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 a cup of brown sugar. This wasn't watery at all. I cooked it for 40 minutes at 350, then for 10 minutes at 400 to crisp it up. It came out perfect!

Ice Cream Base

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
This came out amazing! So creamy and perfect. I added a 1/4 cup of cocoa and a 1/4 cup of Starbucks mocha powder. I then added a tsp of vanilla. After the ice cream was in the ice cream maker for 20-25 minutes, I added mini marshmallows and bunny grahams. My whole family loved it! Thank you for the recipe.

Lemon Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I'm somewhere between a 3 and 4 stars on this. It wasn't what I was expecting. It's good, but a traditional lemon bar is better. This tastes, as DH put it, like lemon soaked cake and coconut. It didn't have much true lemon flavor, and we could barely taste the coconut. I used real lemons, too.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Perfect. I added a splash of Worcestershire sauce and used red peppers instead of green since that is what I had. My family loved it.

Classic Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This was a big hit and was just the type of coleslaw I was looking for. I made a few changes. I halved the recipe but still felt there was far too much cabbage. I would only use one head of lettuce next time. I also used a little less sugar and added quarter of a Visalia onion. Overall this was really good and not too much mayo which is what I usually dislike about most coleslaws.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I doubled this, but followed it to a T including the anchovies. This would be amazing if it had a little less garlic. I love garlic, but I found this very strong. Watch the size of your cloves if you don't cut back on the amount of garlic. I put the anchovies and garlic together in a food processor to mince. Worked perfectly. The croutons also came out amazing.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
This tastes amazing. Just the right amount of tart to sweet. I followed another person's suggestion and cut all the strawberries. Cooked 2/3 of them, and then added the last 1/3. Super easy my 4 year old was able to do it!

Flavorful Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This was a great base to any stir fry. I agree with other posters that the sauce needs to be doubled. I did 1 1/2 because I had a little less than a pound of meat and I found it still needed more sauce. I also added a clove of minced garlic to the sauce along with a tsp of crushed red pepper flakes. My husband and 3 year old daughter loved it too!

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
These came out good, but not quite what I was looking for. As a lot of others said, they are definitely "cakey". I think next time I will halve the baking soda and add a little more vanilla for a sweeter taste. These aren't bad, just not the chewy texture I'm looking for.

JIF® Buckeyes

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
These came out creamy and just the right balance of sweetness and saltiness. One thing I did that isn't in the recipe is to put the peanut butter mixture in the freezer for about 30 minutes before forming them into balls. It made it much easier to form. I then put the balls in the freezer for another 30 minutes before dipping it in the chocolate. This made them nice and firm. Awesome recipe!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
This came out fantastic! I made a couple changes. 1. I used a 6.9 lb pork shoulder with the bone because that was the smallest at the store. 2. I substituted a beer for the chicken broth (per another reviewer's suggestion) because I didn't have any chicken broth. Because it was larger, I cooked it on high for 9 hours. One mistake I made was not turning it over about halfway through, so the top ended up not as cooked as the bottom. The rest was falling off the bone and so moist though. Both my husband and my 2 1/2 year old daughter LOVED it. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet and Spicy BBQ sauce and ended up using some more when I made the sandwich because I love the taste not necessarily because it needed it. This had a great vinegar-y, spicy taste to the pork, which is my favorite kind of BBQ. Edited to add: DO NOT USE THYME! I made this a second time and used 1 tsp of thyme because I couldn't remember if I used it last time. Well it ruined the entire taste. Yuck.

Easy Apple Strudel

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
I followed this exactly except for the raisins because we aren't big fans. It was so easy to make and even better than apple pie. Looked gorgeous too!

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
This came out excellent. I followed a lot of suggestions from other reviewers though. First, I used my slow cooker. I had a 2.5 lb pork loin (not tenderloin) that I seasoned with seasoned salt. I used apple cider instead of juice. I also added carrots and an apple to the slow cooker. I put the apple butter on top of the loin so it kept the moisture in. It cooked for about 9 hours on low (it could have come out sooner) and was very tender and tasty. Super easy! My husband LOVED it.

Pumpkin Roll Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This made an amazing dessert! It looked complicated, but was super easy to make. I went to a pumpkin party where everyone made something out of pumpkin, and this was a HUGE hit. I will say it made a smaller roll than I expected, but that could be due to the thickness of the sheet cake. CHANGES: I added about a 1/4 tsp all spice as well as 1/4 tsp ginger. I used parchment paper instead of wax paper and used confectioner's sugar liberally. This made the transfer with the towel very easy. NEXT TIME: I'll either double the filling recipe or add whipped cream to it just to make the filling more visible and light. Thanks for the recipe! I'll definitely make this again.

Spinach Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This is five stars with the changes I made to it. Like others I sautéed onion and garlic and omit the garlic powder. I also add two cans of Italian flavor canned diced tomatoes for color and for taste. Everyone loves this and it is so easy to make!
