Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
I really liked this easy recipe! Nice and tender chops, and all the ingredients were already in my pantry. I used 4 pork chops and thought the sauce amount was just right. Because they were not swimming in sauce, the little amount spread on each chop (about 1 T. each)bubbled and cooked into a nice glaze with no broiling needed. Strange name though because the chops don't sit in a marinade for any length of time at all. I will definitely line my pan with foil next time because my dish will soaking for awhile with burnt on sauce.

Strawberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I wanted to review this because I disagree with the horrible reviews. I also wondered about the amount of vinegar, but I thought the amount of balsamic was perfect because you don't want to overpower the strawberry flavor. I did use canola oil instead of olive oil because I didn't want the stronger flavor of olive oil coming through. I also added 2 T. sugar after tasting. I did not find the texture to be too thick - I think this may depend on your strawberries. I used very soft, juicy local berries. Not those hard California berries you buy at the market. I think this really made the difference in making a very good dressing.

Pumpkin Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This was delicious! I cut the recipe in half for four of us and baked in four custard cups. I didn't have self rising flour so I used the substitute of other reviewers. Also subbed applesauce for all the butter and used fat free evaporated milk and it turned out great and very healthy too!

Pumpkin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
These are really good, soft cookies! I followed the dough directions exactly then added cinnamon chips and chopped walnuts instead of raisins. I really liked that combo! Baked them for 12 min. (in a convection oven on insulated sheets).

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
My family really enjoyed these. I cut way back on the eggs and margarine though. For four boneless pork chops (about 1 lb. total), I used one egg (and threw away the extra) and I topped each pork chop with just a little spoonful of margarine (I didn't measure it). The crackers I had on hand were wheat TownHouse crackers which were very good. Took the advice of others and uncovered for the last 15 min. and still turned on the broiler for a few minutes in the end to get the coating crisp. Will definitely make again.

Farmhouse Barbecue Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
These were just OK. My family would prefer to just have the meat/cheese in a hamburger bun instead of the biscuit. Also sauce is a little too sweet .

Garlic Lover's Pizza Crust for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This dough worked really well for beef calzones. It rolled out very nicely and baked up into a nice crisp thin crust. I didn't think the garlic flavor was very noticeable though, so I may add some garlic powder to it next time.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I was pleasantly surprised with this sauce as I was sure I would need cornstarch to thick it up, but it wasn't necessary. I thought it was a bit too sweet so I would cut back on the sugar next time. The directions seemed obscure so I appreciated other reviews. I sliced all the berries, put 1/3 aside, smashed up the remaining 2/3 with a potato masher to release the juices and cooked as directed. I put all the cooked berries/juice into my magic bullet to puree and added the set aside raw berries into this. I refrigerated the sauce before using on cheesecake. Would definitely make again!

Quick Sticky Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
These were quick and yummy, but...we all sat down to eat them while they were warm and then as they started to cool, hardened caramel literally started forming between our teeth as we chewed! Not sure why this happened, I've made sticky buns and monkey breads plenty of times before and never had this problem. Will stick with other recipes.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This is delicious! My kids helped me make it, and we stirred in a big spoonful of peanut butter (maybe 1/4 cup)in the end. Boy, that really made it good! We also enjoyed in warm because we couldn't wait for it to cool down. I used skim milk and it still came out thick and smooth.

Turkey with Apple Slices

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
Well, I'm not sure about this one. My husband liked it, but I couldn't decide if I liked the maple syrup/vinegar combo in the glaze. However, it was a quick and easy recipe.

Apple Turkey Potpie

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
My family really enjoys this potpie! It's great for leftover turkey or chicken. I substitute craisins for the raisins which complements the turkey well. I also use cream of celery soup instead because it has a milder flavor than cream of chicken. If I have any leftover gravy, I throw that in with the soup for a more homemade flavor. Great recipe!

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
This is truly a very easy granola bar to make that tastes great. I used the fat free sweetened, condensed milk, and left out the butter to make it healthier. Also dropped the coconut because I don't like it and upped the craisins to a full cup. I lined the pan with parchment paper and sprayed that with Pam. I lifted the whole thing right out of the pan and had a clean pan and no sticking. I plan to use this recipe with our Sunday School kids - simple for them to prepare, bakes quickly, and they'll love eating them too!

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
The whole family loved these! You can't tell that they are made with bisquick at all so I wouldn't waste the time using more ingredients to make muffins from scratch. I wasn't sure how they would turn out because I only had fat free sour cream in the house, but the texture and taste was perfect and I saved on all that saturated fat too!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
I thought I'd try this recipe because I've been making it for years with devil's food cake and peanut butter chips - which my kids love! I followed the dough ingredients exactly but used my usual procedure. I form the dough into balls, flatten slightly with a spatula and bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes. I experimented with rolling a few dough balls in granulated sugar and a few in powdered sugar before making the whole batch. I personally prefer the granulated sugar. It made a nice subtle crunch on the outside while the inside was soft and chewy. Warning though to make sure the inside is chewy - don't overbake even by a minute! My first experiments were more like little cake cookies so I was careful to watch the time on the rest of them. In the end, the cookies are good, very easy to make, but still have a somewhat artificial cake mix taste to them. My chocolate ones taste more homemade.

Hershey's® Kisses® and Reese's® Peanut Butter Sundae

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
I love this peanut butter sauce! However, I don't taste the vanilla so I just leave it out. Instead of hershey kisses, we just use a little chocolate sauce on our ice cream too and we end up with a Reeses Peanut butter cup sundae from Friendly's. Yum!

This is the perfect summer grilled chicken. Moist and tasty. I wasn't sure if my kids would like the balsamic in it, and they loved it!

Stovetop Granola

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
This recipe is great because it is very quick to make and tastes great too. I leave out the nuts and craisins to use it as a topping for yogurt. Like others, I upped the quantity of oats to 3 cups.

Cookie Mix in a Jar I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2004
These cookies are very good! Taste like Toll House. They do turn into crisp cookies. I prefer chewy so I microwave them before I eat them. For this recipe, I would recommend just scooping the flour up with the measuring cup rather than doing it the "right" way. That adds the little extra flour so they don't come out so flat. (I tried it both ways.) If you're new to doing cookie mix jars, make sure you put the flour in first then pack it down with the bulb end of a turkey baster. Next the brown sugar, then the white sugar, then the chips. Pack each layer! This creates distinct layers and all the ingredients fit easily. Also make a loose funnel by rolling & taping a piece of paper. This makes it much easier to dump the ingredients in cleanly. Hope these tips help!
