Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
I had my doubts about this recipe but I'm glad I was wrong! I had thick pork chops and wasn't sure if it was going to cook evenly in the oven, but they came out juicy and tender. I did not have white wine on hand so I created my own gravy to go on top...so I can't speak for the sauce the original recipe calls for.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
This is a great recipe. I didn't give it 5 stars because I tweaked the recipe a bit, but it was fantastic! I used all butter, SugarLeaf (Stevia and cane sugar mix), fresh honey roasted peanut butter, and added Craisins and chocolate chips. I also did what others recommended and added an extra 1/2 cup of oats (I didn't have quick oats, so they were the "Old Fashioned" oats). The cookies turned out great; I did keep mine in for 15 minutes per pan and the result was slightly darker cookie than a "regular" peanut butter cookie but the edges were slightly crisp and the center was chewy. Not too peanut buttery, and not too oatmeal-ish. This is the perfect marriage of my two favorite cookies!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
Very good starter recipe. Whisking eggs til frothy definitely lightens up the waffles. I used soy milk and added a scoop of Jay Robb's Vanilla Whey powder to try to add some more protein (and some vanilla flavoring). It didn't add a ton of vanilla flavor but I did get my protein from it. Definitely will keep this recipe. It's easy to make and I always have the ingredients on hand!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Made this tonight and it was fantastic. Doubled the recipe and made a pan of muffins and a loaf of bread. It was very moist, light and delicious. I didn't have any baking soda so the appearance of the bread is a little flat. I added real vanilla extract to bring out some more flavor. Definitely a keeper.

Green Onion Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Best recipe I've used so far to get the dough to the right consistency! I brushed sesame oil on the top of the dough before sprinkling onions and salt/pepper. The key is to make sure you rest the dough. Will definitely keep this recipe for repeated use.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This was an easy recipe to prep the day before. In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving I started buying stale loaves of herb bread from the grocery store's "Reduced for Quick Sale" rack. I stored the bread in the freezer and took them out 2 days ahead to thaw/dry out. I followed the recipe pretty well for the most part (I added chopped carrots for added veggies), and found the amount of broth to be just right for my mixture. I pretty much filled the entire crock pot with bread...then as it cooked midway through, I dumped the rest of the bread in (I had enough broth to ad-lib if I needed to). The stuffing tasted wonderful! It is moist, just like we like it. It went well with our turkey gravy. It is even better the day after (and after)! My husband says the flavors are better than the boxed stuffing. This is definitely a keeper in my family.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I love garlic, so this was a no-brainer for me. It was very good, and nothing needs to be changed with this recipe! I did overcook it but it was my fault (got distracted making other foods). Still yummy, just a little more soft (I imagine that it would have been just as good to whip these up and serve them mashed).

Quick Pickled Eggs and Beets

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
This was a great recipe. My father-in-law couldn't believe I was able to make his favorite snack the way he remembered it! The only thing I did not do is put in any cinnamon...otherwise I followed the recipe as written. I will definitely be making these again! Thanks for sharing!!!

Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
This recipe is simple and delicious!! The only thing I changed was I increased the amount of mushrooms and used 24 oz. of baby bellas for one pack of dry dressing mix. It paired really well with the Schweinbraten Roast Pork recipe that I found on this site. Hubby loved it all!!

Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Nice kick. Didn't have sherry available but used some nice brandy instead. I also added some cinnamon to the mix.

Baked Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This was an easy and tasty base recipe! My marinade was fresh juice of 2 lemons and some olive oil. I seasoned it with sweet paprika, dehydrated onions, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I made my own bread crumbs with butter crackers in the food processor. Baked according to directions, and made spaghetti with marinara sauce to pair with it! It was simple and delicious!

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
A good starter recipe. I used two bananas and applesauce instead of oil. The batter was thin so I made silver dollars. The pancakes turned out thin and flimsy (not dense like regular pancakes). The flavor was good, and I also added some chocolate chips. Beware that the pancakes may carmelize/burn a little on the griddle because of the sugar content of the 'nanners.

Kitty Litter Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
This was a really fun cake to make and eat! I followed some other reviews on the recommendations as follows: I used Little Debbie brownies. They are easy to handle and mold. And you can get quite a few poops from one package of brownies! For the litter I used almost one entire pack of Golden Oreos and crumbled them in the food processor. I used one box of Butter cake mix and one box of Devil's Food cake and baked both of them together to save on pans and clean-up. I just baked them for a longer period of time. (You're going to crumble the cake and mix it together anyway...) I used one pack of Vanilla pudding and one pack of Butterscotch flavor. For the added reality effect (as if this needs more reality?) I used my fingertips and made paw prints. LOL It tasted good, and in my opinion it tasted a lot better the next day after the pudding was able to soak into the cake!

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
We quartered our potatoes and decided to add more sugar to the mixture as I think the recipe left it more on the salty side. We also didn't have fresh bacon and used prepared bacon bits and shortening. I'm sure it would rock with real bacon, though! I added a hard boiled egg to the mix just to add a little protein.

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This recipe is easy for those short on time and is very much a no-brainer. I'm not a fan of banana breads but didn't know what to do with 3 over-ripe bananas. I followed the recipe but then added about 1/3 cup of PB2 (it's granulated Peanut Butter) to the cake batter. I baked it in a 9x13 pan per the instructions on the box. I didn't have any whip topping on hand but the cake was so moist it didn't need it. It's a great recipe and definitely a keeper!!

Mom's Best Waffles

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Quick, easy recipe for waffles. I only had whole wheat flour on hand and these turned out great! I did let the batter rest for a little bit while I dusted off the waffle iron and let it heat up. Great with some real butter and syrup. GO MOM!

Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I'm always looking for ways to spruce up my croutons. This is a great basic recipe. I didn't have french bread on hand but I did have stale bagels. I drizzled olive oil on the cut bagels and sprinkled on sea salt, white ground pepper, Old Bay seasoning and a dash of celery salt. Stuck them in the oven until they were brown and crispy. Mmmm!

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I put my herbs and garlic in the food processor, added some oil and then slathered it all over the pork loin. I also poked a few holes with the tip of a knife before placing in fridge for a few hours. I also used a meat thermometer rather than put it in the oven for whatever time to cook. The meat was extremely tender!! I'm not crazy about Rosemary and perhaps I put too much in, but it was well seasoned. We served it with a side dish of buttered couscous and a salad.

German Baby

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
This recipe was incredibly easy and the results were great! I followed the directions except I spaced it and put the cold milk in with the eggs. It still came out well! I sprinkled a little coarse sea salt over the top before topping with confectioner's sugar and lemon juice. Mmmmm. Definitely a keeper.
