Pork Chops with Herbed Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
Pretty bland. The meat is NOT fork tender. Not sure what I did wrong. Started out with beautiful boneless loin chops. I'm wondering if the bake time is too short because other pork chop recipes have a longer bake time to get to the fork tender stage.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
This is an excellent comfort food recipe. I used panko bread crumbs, and in addition to the single can of cream of mushroom soup, I added a can of golden mushroom soup as suggested by other reviewers. I served it over rice and added a garden salad. The pork chops were very tender. My family loved it!

Low Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly as written except for the fresh chives because I had none. This is a thin dressing, but I didn't find that to interfere with the integrity of the salad at all. Yum!

Braised Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
These were pretty good - not spectacular, but fine for a no-fuss dinner. I am glad I followed the advice of others and used more liquid; also, I used all chicken stock and no water. The only other difference is that I used dried oregano in place of the marjoram, but they are similar in flavor. The sauce turned out very nicely.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
These are good! I thought they might need more flour, but I left the batter alone and it worked out just fine. More flour might have made them too dry. I think you do need to add a little more salt and a little more cheese than called for; hence only four stars.

Cheese's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This was OK, but I found it to be kind of oily, probably from the sausage and also the block of cheese. Also, if I make this again one change I will make is to use onion powder rather than chopped onion. I found the texture to interfere with the creaminess that I want in mac & cheese.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
This recipe has some flaws the way it is written (adding too much water, not mixing the cream cheese and cake mix well enough, etc. as mentioned in other reviews) but overall you do end up with a cobbler-like dessert. My problem is that it is WAY too sweet! The cake mix is very sweet already, and you end up with a higher ratio of cake to fruit than is appealing. If I had added a cup of sugar to the peaches it would have been inedible.

Hot Fudge Sauce II

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
This is a delicious chocolate sauce, but not quite the "fudge" sauce I was looking for. We enjoyed it, nonetheless. I am giving 4 stars because the sugar being called for is way too much! I used half that amount and it was perfect.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
This is a good meat loaf recipe, but with a few tweaks as mentioned on other reviews, it becomes a GREAT meat loaf recipe. I added three cloves of chopped garlic to the meat mixture, as well as a little dash of soy sauce. I added dry mustard and Worcestershire sauce to the ketchup mixture, and I did not put sauce on the bottom of a loaf pan - I formed my loaves and placed them on a foil-covered cookie sheet and then spooned the ketchup-brown sugar sauce over the tops for the last 15 minutes of baking. Also, it took more like 1-1/2 hours to bake, not an hour. For all of these reasons, I gave it four stars.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
This is scrum-diddily-umptious! The butter-flour-sugar mixture becomes like caramel in the oven and creates this glorious glaze over the top of the pie, plus brings a luxurious flavor and texture to the apples. You have to try it!

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
This was OK but way too sweet (even when I cut back by 1/3 cup sugar from the recipe given) and I actually did not find it to be as moist as the other reviews raved about it. Sorry, but this was "so-so" and not one for me to keep in my files.

Bill's Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Really good! I have never made this with butter before, and thought it would be sinful, but it does add another dimension. I did not use maple sausage so in order to provide some flavor other than the salt and pepper, I added a dash of cayenne and a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Perfect!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
This is the best pancake recipe I have ever tried. The pancakes are smooth and crusty on the outside and fluffy and delightful on the inside. The inside is almost custardy because while it cooks through, there is something really rich and wonderful that makes these more moist than average pancakes. Scrumptious!

Texas Egg Rolls

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
Quite yummy, and different! Make sure you absorb the oil on paper towels before serving or they are too greasy. Also, be sure to serve warm/hot because otherwise the cheese starts to solidify. Definitely serve with a high quality salsa!

General Tao Chicken

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
This is really good! In fact, cooking the chicken in the cornstarch/flour/egg/baking powder mixture is the closest thing I have tried yet to restaurant style Chinese food. The reason I gave it four stars is that there is no heat in the recipe. I think next time I will add some red pepper flakes to see if that helps. It wasn't bland - in fact the ginger and onion flavor it nicely - but it is not spicy the way that General Tsao chicken usually is.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I wish I had learned this trick years ago! Adding the baking soda does something to make the bitterness go away. The tea is indeed very smooth!

Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
This is a very good recipe. I did leave out the bratwurst and the green pepper because I disklike both of those things. Instead of Worcestershirt sauce I used Pickapeppa sauce. Also, after removing the ham bone and meat I used my immersion blender to smoosh up the beans and vegetables. Then I cut up the meat and added bite sized pieces back in. It was quite yummy!

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I had a frozen chuck roast and looked for a recipe to suit it -- this is one of the best recipes I've gotten from this site in some time. The meat is buttery and perfectly seasoned; the cheese sauce is delectable and could be used in any number of other recipes. This will become a regular treat at our house.

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Wonderful cookies! Delicious right out of the oven with a cold glass of milk. The dough whips up in no time flat. I used real butter, not margarine. I also took them out at 11 minutes - 12 is a little too long.
