Roast Pork with Cranberry Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
I too did this a little differently. I read that someone else had soaked the roast in brine first so I did that too (1 quart water, 1/4 table salt, 1/4 brown sugar, and some rosemary for a 1.5 lb roast). Instead of cranberry sauce I used some cranberry/orange relish that was leftover from Christmas. I combined the relish with the juice, sugar, mustard, and cloves. I roasted the meat for about 2 hours and then served it right from the oven (I omitted the cornstarch and water at the end of the recipe). The result was the juciest roast I've ever made with a delicious cramberry crust on top that tasted sweet and delicious. The roast had a slight rosemary flavor and was nicely complimented by the cranberry. This was such a hit that even my picky little 4 year-old ate it! I'm sure the original recipe that is posted is yummy, but the way I made it was so good I'll have to do it again this way next time.

Love it! But is you plan to eat left overs don't add the lettuce until you are ready to eat.

Bob's Thai Beef Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2005
Be careful how much fish sauce you use!!! Using a whole cup is way too much. I'll also say that I like fish but apparently fish sauce is not a good flavor for me. Personally, I thought it smelled like low tide. I won't be making this again.

Ribbon Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Loved the flavor of this bread. Very tasty although I couldn't taste the "ribbon" very well. As others have said, there is NO WAY that this can make 2 loaves. I ended up having to make a whole extra batch of the pumpkin batter to fill up my two pans. This might explain my inability to taste the "ribbon". Other than that, this is an excellent recipe that I will definately make again. Just be sure to double the recipe if you want two loaves!

Millie Pasquinelli's Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
This recipe is fantastic! I am fried chicken challenged and even I managed to fry up a batch that rivals what my mother used to make. I followed the recipe exactly and it really came out perfect. Trust me, if I can make this good, almost anyone can.

Sirloin Marinara

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I was very pleased with this recipe. I could not tell that I had made it with spaghetti sauce at all! It was very tangy and flavorful. I tried to use one of my better wines because I was using store bought sauce but I think it would have been good regardless. I too made garlic mashed potatoes and it was awesome. My husband devoured it. It was VERY simple and quick to make too. No doubt that this will be a frequent dinner at my house.

Mexican Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
This was really tasty if you take the suggestions of others and add some extras. I rubbed the pork with fajita seasoning and chili oil and then let it sit for a few hours. I used black beans instead of kidney, added some chili powder and cumin and topped it with a Mexican cheese blend. Everyone loved it!

Turkey Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
I made these the day after Thanksgiving and my husband is still talking about them. I made it more like a casserole (layerd the tortillas) instead of making them individually. It was easier for me that way. Turned out great!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Amazing recipe! I wanted something with peanut butter with the hope that my 6 year old might stray from his peanut butter and honey sandwiches. It worked! This was sooo yummy that the adults AND the kids couldn't get enough. I'll be making this over and over again.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
My 5 year old won't touch fruit and he eats ketchup on every meat imaginable. When I made this he actually ate the meat without ketchup and asked for more apples. It's a keeper for sure! I doubled the sauce mix too and it was just right.

Southern as You Can Get Collard Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
My first attempt to make collard greens turned out pretty well. These were tasty but something about them seemed too greasy. Perhaps I used too many ham hocks, maybe it was the new chicken stock, one i had never used before. Regardless, these were still really good and I'll definitely make them again.

Barbecued Beef Brisket

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
I made this a few weeks ago and it was amazing! The sauce was so tasty and easy to make. Mine cooked fine on high but you might want to try it on low first depending on your crock pot. My whole family enjoyed this...so much so that I've been asked to make it again tonight.

Brandied Orange and Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Nice flavor but I like cranberry sauce with more of a orange-y flavor. I'll definitely make this again, I'll just try and add more zest to make it more to my liking. Everyone else that ate it loved it--even my kids who are 3 & 4 years old!

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
This was my first year to EVER make a turkey. It turned out really well. So well that my husband said he liked it more than the one is mom makes--and he was telling the truth! Great flavor and the juices made excellent stock for gravy.

Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Really great! I made two huge batches for a preschool dinner and there was only a little leftover. Even the kids tore into it. I did spice it up a little and used double the spice that the recipe called for. I also left out the nuts because I was afraid someone would be allergic. This recipe is now one of my favorites!
