German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
Was so excited after reading all the reviews but this is undercooked mush. The outside burned before the inside was done. Very disappointing.

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This was an ENORMOUS hit at my party last night--everyone just raved and raved about it and they all wanted the recipe. It really did taste just like a BLT! I made real bacon and let it meld in the fridge with the mayo/sour cream for a couple hours, then added in the tomato (which I did drain on paper towels as per others suggestions) and served. Since one of my biggest questions was what to serve it with, I will share that I served it in a toasted bread bowl, but thought it was more amazing with celery and cauliflower and fritos scoops, so I would skip the bread next time. Great recipe!!!

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Made this recipe EXACTLY as is and it's amazing! Served with crusty French bread -- this will be a new rotation in our house!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I was very hesitant to try this with such mixed reviews, but am SO glad I did. It was the best pork loin I have ever made, and so simple! I made no changes except to rub the pork loin in Goya Adobo before covering with the sauce. Cooked on low for 8 hours, and the pork just shredded it was so tender. Not sure if maybe the 4 hour high cook time would give some reviewers the "sliced loin" they seem to be looking for, but I only care about taste, so it made no difference to me. Will absolutely become a staple dinner in our house.

Jewish Apple Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
This cake was good but not to-die-for. I think, however, that was mainly due to over baking. You do NOT need an hour and 25 mins. This makes the crust rock hard and it doesn't absorb the glaze. I think if it was baked an hour and absorbed the glaze it would be a lot moister. I'll give it another shot and try that next time, but if that doesn't wow me, I'll be moving on.

Lentil Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
I thought this was fantastic--it got eaten all in one sitting! Yet another meat product I don't have to eat, as this was better than any meatloaf. I don't eat white bread--so I used toasted Ezekiel bread. I also could not find green lentils, so I just used regular. Lastly, I used onion soup mix as opposed to vegetable, as I already had it in my pantry. Next time, I think I might add some chopped onion to the mix, as well as some BBQ sauce. But it was great just as is!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
Absolutely delicious. Super quick and easy. I topped it off with pineapple salsa and sour cream (left off the cilantro because I didn't have any on hand) and was blown away that something so simple tasted so wonderful!

Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Made this to the letter and thought it wasn't bad, it was just kind of ok--lacking that lemon flavor that should be there to compliment the blueberries. Like one other reviewer stated, it tasted mostly like baking mix. I made it because I had a sweet craving come on and ingredient searched for baking mix and frozen blueberries, having nothing else really on hand at the moment. Unless that circumstance arises again, I don't see myself making this twice.

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I will never make candied sweet potatoes any other way! Since I used the canned ones to save time (3, 40oz cans, drained) I halved the brown sugar and butter since they are stored in that sweet syrup. It was perfect!

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Having never touched cranberry sauce because I grew up with a family who plopped it out of a tin, I almost wasn't going to make any for my first time cooking for my fiance's family. But, I knew I had to and when I found this recipe and saw how easy it was, gave it a try. So glad I did! I found out I love cranberry sauce! It got rave reviews from all and it was the easiest thing I made! I used 3/4 cup OJ and 1/4 cup water (will do half and half next time because it was just a tad too tart still) and added a splash of brown sugar as well, and let it cook for 30 mins to thicken and pop all the cranberries. I never have to look at the plop from a tin again!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
These are the most wonderful mashed potatoes I have ever had! That said, I did make a few changes: peeled the potatoes (hate skins), added a touch of milk, little less butter, and roasted a whole head of garlic instead of raw. They were so rich and delicious! I'll always make mashed potatoes this way from now on.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Followed others suggestions and used my own bread crumbs (challah bread) and 2-2 1/2 cups broth, and also added sage sausage. It was mushy (I think it's supposed to be more wet to have that "in the bird" consistency) but it tasted great. I loved the freed up oven space, but considering I never have cared for stuffing in-the-bird, I think I will use this recipe but bake it next year. Also, I'd suggest a crock pot liner!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
Absolutely amazing pancakes!!! Made exactly as is, except I used regular size chocolate chips (it's what I had on hand). I would recommend using the minis if you can, so they melt properly, but they were still delicious! My fiance, who never had Choc. Chip pancakes before LOVED them!

Rye Bread Party Pizzas

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
My sister-in-law always made these back home and I loved them, and it was nice to find the recipe. Loved them now just as much as then! Didn't change a thing!

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I made this as directed, and it was just ok (though my fiancé seemed to like it rather well). I found it to be quite bland, and only when reheated the next day with some salt and pepper was it semi-tasty. Won't make again...

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
These were ok--I thought the cheese filling was a bit too much/too rich, and it was way too spicy. Next time I will half the cayenne and add ground sausage to give it something "more", but I wouldn't make it again "as is".

Crab Quiche I

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Meh. I used imitation crab, and that might have been a bit of the issue, but I don't think it could compensate for the dryness and blandness of this dish. I can see why others add seasonings and an extra egg--that's a must. I would also maybe add some garlic and onion, and definitely change out the swiss for a more flavorful cheese.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Was looking for something a bit different from the usual pumpkin pie, and this delivered! The pie is so light and fluffy and delicious, and the topping added such taste and texture. Fantastic!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I used about 3/4 sour cream, sauteed the onions before adding, and used about twice the amount of Ritz cracker topping. It was very good, and it was the one dish that got completely eaten, though I think I prefer it with cream of mushroom soup, which adds a bit more flavor. I think I would also do a half cracker, half fried onions version instead.
