Creamy Mustard Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This is an awesome pork chop recipe! Not too rich like other cream of mushroom pork chop recipes. The mustard puts just the right amount of zing. I didn't have fresh parsley - dried worked fine. I was worried I should have mixed the soup, milk, and mustard before pouring over the chops, but they mixed fine together right in the pan and cooked up to a nicce gravy consistency. Will definitely make again.

Hearty Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Excellent! I used whole milk instead cream because that's all I had. Also didn't use mushrooms because I didn't have any. Also only used about half as much spinach - I think the full 10 oz would have been too much for our taste. Also, used bacon instead of sausage and that was really good. Cooked for about 40 minutes. About 4 more minutes to melt the cheese on top. My little kids and husband (and myself) loved it! (sorry for all the changes - but wanted to show what else worked.)

Chicken Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Really good flavor and so easy to make. Thank you! I used 3 cans of chicken broth, a can of petite diced tomatoes, and a can of chicken (along with the rest of the recipe) and it was great.

Pork Lo Mein

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
My family (including 2 and 4 year olds)loved this! We used thawed frozen peas instead of peapods (didn't have peapods) and yellow pepper instead of red pepper (again, just what we had). It was delicious! I didn't find it bland at all. Tasted like it came from a chinese restaurant! Don't overcook the pork - it can be a little pink, it's not chicken.

Stir-Fry Pork with Ginger

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
This is an excellent stir-fry recipe. I've been trying pork stir-fry recipes for a while now, and I feel my search is over! I used thin sliced pork chops, removed all the fat, and cut into very fine strips. I think this this size helped to keep the pork very tender. Be sure not to overcook the pork. It's not chicken - it can be a little pink in the middle. I added a bag of frozen oriental stir-fry vegetables (thawed would have been better to reduce the amount of cooking time for the pork) after the pork was mostly done. Used 1.5 lb of pork, so increased portion size to 12. Do not increase the amount the veg. oil, but do follow the new measurements for sesame oil. I had to substitute the rice wine with rice vinegar and dark soy sauce with regular (actually lite) soy sauce. I omitted the salt as my husband always douses his chinese meals with soy sauce before trying it. Excellent flavor - my two and four year old liked it. I disagree that it is missing anything - but it certainly could be jazzed up any way you want. Thank you for this recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
I can't believe how many of these my daughters ate! So good and good for you! I changed the serving size to 10 to use a whole can of pumpkin. Despite what the numbers on the recipe were after doing that, I used a whole can of puree and two eggs. Turned out great. I used one can of evaporated milk and a cup of 2% milk. Also, using the adjusted measurements for 10 servings, I used 2/3 cup whole wheat flour and the rest regular flour with no problems.

Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
Very good! My husband turned his nose up at it at first thinking it was the Texas Hash his mom used to make. He said this was much better. I did make a couple of changes - no green pepper and used a can of diced tomatoes instead of the fresh tomatoes. Used canned corn, too. It was a little spicy, but even my two year old liked it - so it's not too spicy. Great served with those thick Mexican tortilla chips.

Ham Stir Fry with Couscous

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
Just what I was looking for! Needed a recipe for ham with lots of vegetables and this foot the bill perfectly. I followed the other reviewers suggestions in using only half the brown sugar and no water chestnuts or almonds (didn't have them anyway). The sauce was delicious! I used a capri vegetable mix (zuchinni, yellow squash, green beans, carrots) which worked out well. I used orzo pasta which I wouldn't recommend, but it was fine. Next time will try couscous or rice.

Glazed Mint Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I want to give this recipe five stars, but since I didn't follow it exactly, can only give it four. But let me tell you - these were delicious and exactly the recipe I was looking for! Where I come from, we call this Grasshopper Dessert. This was so easy and turned out so, so good. Tasted like Fannie Mae mint meltaways. I doubled the recipe for both the mint and chocolate layers and used a 9x13" brownie mix (using a 7x11" glass pan). Even my husband who always says he's not a big sweets person loved them.

Sausage Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Very, very good. I would not recommend pre-baking the crescent rolls. I believe they are supposed to soak up some of the egg mixture, like other egg casseroles that use bread. Still makes a nice pastry crust without prebaking. I used a glass pan - maybe the type of pan used explains some of the issues mentioned in previous posts. I threw in some frozen chopped spinach (I would think you could use fresh, too) for color and nutrition. Could barely taste it. I used only 1 lb of sausage as that is all I had. It seemed to be plenty. Also used only four eggs as the recipe called for, though I was tempted to use more. It turned out great! Good recipe for when you don't have a lot of eggs on hand! :-)

End of the Line Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Very good! I omitted the onion and used onion powder (probably could have skipped that) and french fried onions in and on top. Great with a side of canned grean beans. Doesn't make a lot - will probably double recipe next time.

Kielbasa with Pasta

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
This was really good! A different taste, but we liked it (including my 2 and 4 year olds)! I used crushed tomatoes instead of stewed because that was what I had. The sauce had a sweet taste to it, but it tasted really good with the salty kielbasa - a great flavor combination. Thank you!

Vegetable Lo Mein

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Excellent sauce! A little hot for my taste, but my husband and 3 year old did not find it hot. I did not add curry powder as I didn't have any and also forgot the soy sauce and it was still great. I just used a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables and some frozen shrimp with about 2/3 a pound of spaghetti. Loved it. Thank you!
