Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Did not want to heat my house using the oven so slipped this in my slow cooker. After rubbing the pork with seasoned salt i placed in cooker with apple chunks then added other ingredients. Awesome stuff. and made perfect gravy If using slow cooker and apple chunks I might cut the liquid to half.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Don't change a thing with this! This bread is the easiest thing I have ever made. I mix it all by hand and knead it for a few minutes. I like to work in about two tablespoons of olive oil while kneading and then put it in a happy spot to let it rise. After that, you just work it with your palms into the shape you desire and poke it with your fingers. I just brush it with olive oil and then poke it again and bake. With or without the cheese this bread is a timeless piece of tasty art!

Braided Egg Bread

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Wow! This bread will make you a star in the kitchen. My farm makes this with our fresh products and this sells like crazy. This bread is worth the time and love it takes to prepare it. Don't shy away. I work the entire recipe by hand and it produces beautiful results. I like the tip about throwing in a tablespoon of instant potato flakes. When this gets out of the oven I like taking honey butter and rubbing it into the loaf. The shine with the egg white and the aroma makes those passing by weak at the knees! Enjoy!

Jalapeno Corn Bread

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
This cornbread is super easy and beautiful. I love baking this and wrapping with ribbon and presenting it as a gift. When I am able I use fresh buttermilk form the farm and the same with our garden's jalapeno plants. Other days, I just use milk and the tbls of lemon juice sub and canned jalapenos. Either way this recipe demands great flavor and is a hot topic at the table!

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
I added a teaspoon of Mrs. Dash Original Blend and a tsp of Oregano. Other than that I didn't change a thing. I worked it all together with my hands and maybe added a tbls of flour and tbls of oil as I kneaded and shaped the round. The critical step is proofing the yeast and never be in a rush with any type of bread. Be gentle and work all the ingredients with your palms. The same thing after the rest, patience and gentle working it into your desired shape. This the perfect crust. Bakes well, slightly chewy, not to bready, excellent flavor and texture. Enjoy the simplicity of the ancient ritual of bread making.

Coconut Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
It is a good quickie salad. It was a bit bland for me. I like my food to make a statement even if it is subtle. Second time around I added a chopped gala apple quickly dipped in lemon juice. Skipped the milk and used yogurt instead and I had some vanilla syrup and added a tbls. Also let the fruit sit in a strainer for 1/2 hour. Much better ambrosia salad offered a delicate sweet vanilla tone and a cooling tropical fling.

Groovy Green Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
The only reason I was brave enough to try this was because of other reviews. Luckily, the did not disappoint. My son (who is not big on fruit) loved this and asked for 2nds! It was just a tad tangy for me (it was the brand of yogurt) so I threw in 2 tsp of honey. It did the trick. My Vita-mix just tore through this. I wasn't big on the smell and I ended up throwing in some ice. Overall it is worth trying and at the very least a great St. Patty's drink!

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Okay my two cents: Definitely use a bigger pan. I used a 11x13 and it was 2/3 full. My hens lay pretty big eggs, but still! I try to cook without salt whenever possible, but everyone knows you can indulge with eggs. I used 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of garlic powder, and 1 tsp of Mrs. Dash Original Blend. Yum-yum! This recipe calls to the creative cook. Have fun with it - after all they're just liquid chickens! :p

Cheesy Tuna Melts

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
My family really liked these. I'm not a big tuna fan, but I was surprised how well these turned out with such little effort. I did add some sweet relish and replaced the salt with Mrs. Dash Original Blend. I also used Monterey Jack .

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
The taste was excellent. I had a little problem with overflow even though my cake pan was 2/3 full. The frosting was good and very rich. I loved the way it hardened up allowing me to decorate using ribbons and chocolate roses. I'm giving this 4 stars because I wasn't thrilled with my cake texture. I love fluffy moist cakes. This one however was a tad moist for me (more like a brownie but still cake like) and just a tad too dense. Needs some extra cooling time in the pan before depanning. Give it a 10 minute minimum for cooling before attempting to remove. Very good - I've had several people request this cake. I sometimes change out the vanilla for chocolate extract and the water for hot coffee. Plenty of icing left so be sure to split layers or use as a crumb coating first. Those who had a problem with the frosting: take your icing knife and dip it in hot water, let the excess water drip off for a second and proceed to spread. Repeat process every time your knife cools or you hit a "hard patch".

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
It just doesn't get any easier than this! Like others, I decreased the sausage/gravy ratio. Added 1/4 tsp of garlic powder to the gravy (this gal loves her garlic). Helpful tip: recipe doubles very well. Used the leftover gravy for our mashed potatoes and fried chicken the next night.

Sausage Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I am giving this 4 stars because of the seasonings I had to add to this and because I used 6 eggs instead of 4. This was out of this world good. I never buy pizza crust - it's just too expensive. I suggest using the Quick and Easy Pizza Crust on this site. Made as directed but added 1 T minced onion, 1/4 tsp of powdered garlic, and 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning to the egg mixture. SOOOOO Goood!!!!

Popovers

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
These were amazing. It has been so long since I had made popovers. I'm not sure why but I feel so foolish for waiting after seeing the ease of this recipe. So no peeking in the oven once they are in. Follow the instructions to a T and while popover tins are wonderful don't be afraid to pull out your muffin tins.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I've been making this for years and the love it. I vary the fruits and mixes quite a bit. My fave is yellow cake mix and just about any fruit. Common sense applies with the liquid. You have fresh fruit fine add some liquid and sugar according to the juice and sugars already in the fruit. Ex: peaches are usually way sweeter and juicer than blueberries so the blueberries get a lil more liquid and sugar. Simple nuff. Frozen fruit...same thing. Canned fruit...same thing. Just add enough to wet the half of topping touching the fruit. The butter and cream cheese will take care of the rest. And as everyone has said just cut the cream cheese and butter into the cake mix a much better blend and lends more of a cobbler consistency. Have fun with it. Don't forget you can add some extract to the syrup. I like almond the best but the possibilities are endless. Try it with a chocolate extract and blueberries with a white cake mix. Nummy :)

Easy Garden Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
This is what I call a realistic recipe. It's great to throw together for that fresh out of the garden taste. The ingredients are main staples in my kitchen and the dish adds a crisp color to any dinner setting. The green beans are complimented very nicely and there is no question that they are being showcased. I personally could do without the parsley. All that being said there isn't a lot to rave about. They are after all just green beans, but they are a good side. Enjoy!

Easy Candy Yams with better Instructions

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Okay, this recipe has potential it is divine but it needs MAJOR re-writing. First off, get a bigger dish 9x9 doesnt even have to be square.Use cooked yams or canned yams (drained) and increase the 4 cups to about 6 or 7. Mash them...not chop. Leave out the butter (unless greasing the sides of your dish to keep the marshmallows from sticking. Double the amount of marshmallows and Broil them under a guarded eye for a heavenly browning. Do this and the dish will be the best thing you ever tasted.

Chocolate Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Made exactly as is. This cake was perfection. The women of the South judge their peers by their pound cakes. I am proud to say (not being born and bred here) that I passed. ;)

Meaty Thick Man Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Oh, wow this is really good. I wasn't expecting it to taste like a close version of my grandfather's chili. I've made it twice and the 2nd time hit it right on the noggin. I doubled the kidney beans, the water, and used one can diced tomatoes and one can sauce. I also added 2 cans of Manwich sloppy joe sauce. I used about half cup of chili powder and 2tbls of brown sugar and 2 tbls of mesquite smokey flavor seasoning. With all the changes the chili is still very thick, a man's chili no doubt! Normally, I dont change the recipe so much but this was a great starter that got me back to my deceased grandfather's recipe. We havent had his chili in 12 years! Either way you make it 5 stars!

Golden Carrot Buns

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This bread is perfect. It's not too dense, rises reliably, a warm friendly color, and a rustic flavor. Perfect for the beginner bread maker. Freezes well- that is if it lasts that long. A great dinner roll. I've used this bread for Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad along with some swiss cheese it was delicious!
