Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Yummy served atop Jasmine rice....don't shred the meat! Cut boneless chops into strips and don't add the bell peppers until the last half-hour of cooking or they will disintegrate. I also cut the ginger in half...way too much for only 1 lb. of meat, and although I LOVE garlic, some of my cloves were pretty big so I only used 4, which I thought gave it plenty of garlic flavor. Sprinkled some fresh chopped cilantro on top & a squeeze of fresh lime, too. Enjoy with an ice cold beer! :-)

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Delicious, beautiful & impressive! A must try! Just for fun I brushed them with some apricot jam that I added a dash of cayenne pepper to first (brushed it on during the last 10 min. of baking) and it raised these beauties to a whole new level of fabulousity! With or without the glaze, they are awesome! Enjoy! :-)

Chickpea Salad with Red Onion and Tomato

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Very delicious with garden fresh tomatoes. Don't dice the onion too big. I like to add a little chopped fresh mint along with the fresh parsley or half parsley, half cilantro. DON"T use dried herbs in this recipie! Try adding crumbled feta cheese and sliced pitted Kalamata olives, if you like them. If not, regular black olives may be substituted. Prepare a couple of hours in advance for the flavors to marry. I also strongly prefer this served at room temperature. Yum!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Tasty, but not to die for....and definetly NOT worth spending extra $ on a pork tenderloin. Use boneless chops instead for a tasty, more affordable meal. Yummy with Jasmine rice on the side. Use reduced soy sauce, if you can.

Cheese and Onion Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
An interesting side dish for meat...steak on the grill was our choice. I didn't think the cheddar sounded good and had some Jarlsburg to use up. Glad I did...it was very tasty. I also recommend sauteeing the onion on a small amount of butter/evoo and add a touch of garlic.

Sara's Famous Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This is yummy! I added 2 tsp. of pure almond extract to the cherries the first time I made it. The next time, I did 1 can of cherry and 1 can of apple pie filling! Also yummy! The crispy top is so good! Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for a real treat! :-)

Breakfast Burritos with Green Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
These are yummy. Never tried it with cream cheese before! In the past, we've made these when camping and used pepper jack cheese instead. Garden fresh diced tomatoes are great in these, too! If you use smaller tortillas, and add more chorizo, it's enough to feed a group of hungry campers! I hate to admit this, but an icy cold beer goes great with these, even if it is morning! Try a bloody mary w/ a chaser! YUM!

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Yummy! I like to amp up the seasonings...more garlic, cumin, and I also add a handful of chopped cilantro. Sliced smoked sausage is good in this, too. Really great served over rice, with a squeeze of fresh lime! With a salad, it's a great meal. :-)

Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Super yummy! I don't care for raisins, so used craisins instead. Next time I may add some choc. chips to the batter. I also think these would be great naked...just plain ol' oatmeal cookies! Don't forget an ice cold glass of milk with these! :-)

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
Mmmmmm, these are so good! I had a heck of a time finding macadamia nuts, and when I did, it was a 3 oz. pkg. for $5, so I bought a pound of pistachios instead. Their greenish hue looked very pretty with the cranberries! Not the same crunch as a macadamia, but was a fine substitute. I made these today for a cookie swap. Doubled the recipie thinking I would get 6 dozen, but got more like 9 dozen! This was a good thing, because they are very addictive! My hubby commented several times how good he thought they were! I dusted some with powdered sugar and the rest got a drizzle of semi-sweet chocolate! They were as pretty as they were delicious! I found the batter to be very stiff when I doubled it and it certainly gave my Kitchen Aid mixer a good work out! If I double it next time, I may do two seperate batches. I also would like to try the cocoa powder version, I bet these would be killer in chocolate with a white chocolate drizzle! Overall a great cookie recipie, I highly recommend giving them a try! :-)

Sour Cream Apple Pie Deluxe

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Made this pie for the first time for Thanksgiving. I was very intrigued by all of the 4 star reviews and professions of love for this pie...but I can't say the same. I made the pie exactly as the recipie states, the only change I made was to add some cinnamon & nutmeg to the filling as it seemed rather bland as written. The pie wasn't bad...it just didn't strike me as all that special. Tasty, but not to-die-for. Maybe sometime I'll give it a try again, but with a dutch apple type of crumble topping. I didn't care for the topping in this recipie as I found it got rather soggy on the second day. I might really enjoy the creamy filling with a more sturdy, crunchy topping. It was fun to give this a try, though. I've never made an apple pie like this before. Thanks for sharing! :-)

Maui Onion Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I'll give it 4 stars 'cuz it sounds so good...before I try making it, though...where can I find papaya seeds? I've never seen them before...not even in the int'l foods section. I'd hate to omit them as the recipie calls for a good amount of them and one reviewer says not to skip the seeds! Help! Would love to give this a try! Thanks!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I have been making something similar for about 20 years, but I use fresh strawberries instead of craisins and I do not put poppy seeds in the dressing! DO NOT cheat yourself out of experiencing the fabulous dressing...it's what makes the salad and is far superior to anything store bought! I make mine in the food processor and add the toasted seasame seeds to the spinach, strawberries & almonds in the bowl, not to the dressing. Pulse the vinegar, sugar, onion, and paprika a few times to combine. Flip the switch to "on" and drizzle the oil through the hopper on top of the food processor. This emulsifies the dressing and gives it a bit of a "creamy" look. I use canola oil instead of veg. oil and also like to add a little bit of white pepper. This salad is an all time favorite and great for special occasions. Everyone loves it and you will get MANY recipie requests! Enjoy! :-)

Pumpkin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I haven't made this yet but give it 4 stars for sounding good! I see from other reviews there is an issue with the bread being dry...with the amount of pumpkin and oil in this recipie, that suprises me...but does not deter me from giving this a try. I plan to omit the raisins & dates and replace them with whole, fresh cranberrries. YUM! A pumpkin cranberry bread with a cream cheese swirl going through it! I bet it'll look pretty, too! Will let you all know how this turns out...I may give it a try for Thanksgiving next week! Thanks for the inspirational recipie...sometimes the best results start when you tweak a recipie to your own personal liking!

Mom's Custard Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
The recipie clearly states to fold the egg white into the batter, AlexandriaMan! On the contrary, my custard pie was light and delicious! I say to all, give this one a try!

Spaghetti with Broccoli and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This needs tweaking! Use FRESH shrooms, (canned are so disgusting) fresh basil & garlic, and FRESH broccoli!!!! Too much black pepper, add 1/2-1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes instead. I like more lemon, too and increased the amount of juice to my liking and microplaned a bit of zest in there, as well. If you use salted butter, you may not need an entire TB of salt. A splash of half & half was a great addition, too. Next time will add chicken or shrimp for the meat lovers in my family. I give it 1 star as written, but a 4 with the tweaks. :-)

Spaghetti Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Sorry...these are just...weird. Love tacos. Love spaghetti. Just not together! When I made this for my kids, ages 9 & 5, they thought I had lost my mind. I thought they'd get a kick out of them. No such luck. Pizza in the oven as I type!

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
These popcorn balls ROCK! Made them today for my son's 4th grade class. I got 21 baseball size balls using 3 regular size bags of butter flavor microwave popcorn (that's what I had onhand) and added 1 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and only 1 tsp. of water. I also used red & yellow food coloring to make them orange. Keep the popcorn warm after you pop it for easy mixing. I left the bags sealed and put the in the oven (at 275 degrees) until I had them all popped and the marshmellow goodness was melted & ready to go. Put the bags one at a time in a colander to get all of the unpopped kernals out! (they will go to the bottom, just scoop the popcorn out of the colander carefully!) I mixed it all at one time in a large stockpot and wore latex gloves sprayed with Pam to shape the balls, then just put them on a baking sheet to cool before putting them in treat bags. A huge hit! I will be making tons of these for Christmas treats for all and will make them look more festive by adding red & green m&m's, gumdrops, whatever. Super easy and so yummy. Truly this is "pocorn balls 101" so don't be afraid to give them a try! Happy Halloween! :-)
