Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
I have made this recipe many times and love it. I make it with pork steaks instead of chops. I also cut way back on the salt and add chicken boullion granuals to the gravy. I also season the steaks with garlic and onion powder and pepper. I also make extra gravy, usually double and don't use all of it and I pour some on top of the steaks as well. I do not uncover as this only dries them out.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
Loved it. I tripled it for 2 adults and 3 kids. There's enough leftovers for everyone. I used 2 golden mushroom's and 1 regular cream of mushroom(it's a little cheaper). I added a boullion cube to the water also. I also used sirloin steak because it was on sale. There was way more gravy than meat so I will add more meat next time. I had to let the cream cheese sit for about 15 mins to melt in the gravy because it looked lumpy. Overall a very easy recipe because you don't need to pre-cook the meat.

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
I thought this was really yummy. I did make a few changes as other reviewers suggested. I used a little more than 1/2 cup milk, maybe 3/4, also an extra egg. I also halved the struesel and filled up the bottom of the pan with it. I still had a little struesel left over so I sprinkled it on top. I found the struesel to be moist not crumbly so I added a litle extra flour and it came out perfect. After I baked it and went to remove it from the pan, to my horror I remembered I forgot to grease it. It came out like a mess but the flavor made up for that.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
This was very good. I tasted the sauce before baking and was terrified. But after baking with the chicken it was great. I doubled the sauce and added an extra clove of garlic. The sauce was way too much and I ended up only using maybe half. Also used a bit less sugar and used a big squeeze of honey. Served the sauce over white rice. The kids said it was awsome and it "rocked". Next time I'm going to try marinating the chicken as it didn't have much terriyaki flavor inside the chicken.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2006
Delicious. Moist and tasty. The apples disapeared after baking so next time I think I wil finely dice some of the apples along with shredding. I only had maybe 3/4 cup banana and they still came out yummy. I did the homemade buttermilk substitution from the advice section of Allrecipes as well. Will make again soon.

Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
Absolutely delicious. My son who doesn't like anything bbq'd devoured them. I used 22 frozen bagged wings and had enough sauce for at least double that. I ended up not using all the sauce. I transfered them to a cookie sheet to get browned and sticky towards the end. I also basted them frequently through out cooking. I baked them plain for 20 mins first, drained off accumulated juices then poured on sauce.

B and L's Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
Really delicious. Families first smoothie. I scaled it to 8 servings for 2 adults/3 kids. Made a whole blender full and there's nothing left. I did make some changes like using whole frozen unsweetened strawberries(added a few x-tra too), used light strawberry yogurt and a little less sugar, didn't measure the vanilla. I did not add the ice because the berries were frozen. Kids are begging to make it again soon.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
Delicious. I doubled the recipe. I pretty much made it exactley. I realized when I started I had bought regular pork sausage so I added a few shakes of italian season while it was browning, added the garlic when it was almost done browning. I used water/beef boullion instead of broth. Ground up the tomatoes a little bit in a food processor. Did not add the salt was perfect without it.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
These were good but tasted a little bitter like baking powder/soda. Maybe it's just me though. The streusel is perfect. I did add a splash of vanilla. I scaled the recipe to 15 muffins and made them in 12 texas size pans.

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
Excellent. I use honeygold and haralson apples from our trees. I will make a double batch next time. I've been looking for a really good crisp that's crispy and not soggy, this was perfect. The only crisp I make now.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
Excellent. Just got done eating these and they were so good. I doubled the recipe and ended up using a lb more of hamburger as they seemed too mushy. I have more hamburger mix left so I'm going to pan fry them tommorow. I used seasoned and garlic salt + a little garlic powder. I was nervous they were going to fall through the grate so I froze them while the grill was burning and didn't have any trouble with them. They taste like grilled meatloaf with smokey bacon.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
Yummy bread. Followed the recipe exactly. Ungreased pans? I have made this twice now lightly spraying or greasing nonstick pans and still have a tough time getting them out. I definatly recommend greasing. I used 9 in pans for big loaves. Give it a try.

Kraft's Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2005
Yummy. The sugar/milk mixture tastes like sweetened condensed milk. Easy to prepare. I didn't wait the 6 hrs to serve. I served after 30 mins and it still was great. The kids loved it too.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
Really Good. I use just enough mayonaise to lightly coat the chicken. I don't measure the mayo but I know it's way less than a cup. I add extra seasons to the bread crumb mix such as onion powder & italian season. The chicken really does come out tender. It has been known to fall off the bone.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
These are really good. I use pork steaks instead of chops and they turn out tender. The marinate seems a little weird at first but when baked tastes so good on pork. I do drain off the liquid that accumulates when baking before I add the marinate the second time or they are too runny. I think I like them more than my family. Kind of reminds me of an asian flavor.

Seafood Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Delicious. I don't usually tweak my recipes but I did after reading reviews on this one. To the shrimp I added garlic and a little cumin. The sauce needed help so I added a can of drained diced green chilies, cumin, chipotle pepper powder & cilantro instead of the parsley. I used less sauce because it was so runny and just drained out the green chilies that sunk to the bottom of the pot. Used lots of cheese on top as this seems to help thicken the sauce while cooking. Also no crab all shrimp. Very easy.

Rosa's Carne con Pappas

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
We thought this was excellent. My husband who is Mexican and I picked this recipe out together. I was hesitant because of some of the negative reviews. First of all it seems this is one of those recipe you make by heart but don't really measure things out. So for a beginner cook it may not turn out as well following the directions exactly. I have been cooking by heart for 19yrs. Let me tell you what I did. I started by first browning the meat only for a couple of minutes(just brown quickly on the outside),remove from pan keep covered. Then I cooked the potatoes until lightly browned then added the onions, finished cooking until the potatoes and onions were soft. Then I put the meat back in(drained off all accumulated juices)and added the salsa and simmered for a couple of minutes. Also the salsa casera was confusing. Our store had different "kinds". Big 29oz cans hot(what I bought because I doubled the recipe), small 7oz cans hot and glass jars that resemble a picante sauce mild and medium. All said Herdez salsa Casera?? Well the metal can is more Rotel tomato type not picante salsa. Loved the canned casera we picked. Served in corn tortillas with sour cream on mine. Sorry for the long review. Just trying to help.
