Dad's Basic Moist Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2013
Let me start by saying, I love pork roast! I had my doubts about the method, as I have never had good luck using a high heat start. (ALWAYS start with a really clean oven, which I did.) I ignored my inner warning bells and pressed on. After 15 minutes at 475, I had SMOKE, the kind of smoke that fills the entire house. I had to abandon ship! The internal temp of the roast was only at 45 degrees. I turned the oven OFF and did not open the door. The meat sat in the off oven for another 15 minutes while I aired out the house, opened every window and the doors too. (Thank goodness the neighbors didn't call the fire dept.) At this point the internal temp was 76 degrees. I removed the roast from the oven, turned the oven back on to 325 and allowed the pork to rest for 30 minutes as directed. Placed the roast back in the oven and roasted to 140 (which seemed like it took forever) I removed the roast at 140 and allowed it to rest and come to 145. Was it moist? Yes, but that is because it was not over cooked. Would I recommend this method? Never! It is so easy to sear a roast and cook it low and slow, using the suggested probe thermometer.

Mom's Cranberry Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
This was very good and everybody liked it. One thing I would do differently next time is to toss the apples and cranberries together with the sugar etc. I usually pile my apples really high because they shrink when cooking - I couldn't do that and put the cranberries on top because the cranberries would roll off. So my pie ended up very thin. Delicious but more the thickness of a tart. With that one change this would be 5+ stars. I do believe this will be making an appearance at the Thanksgiving dessert table.

Taco Treat

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
The corn tortillas just don't wrap well, they break and spring apart. I would suggest flour tortillas. The flavor of the dip itself is fine.

Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
This is really good. For us the sesame seeds are not optional. The fresh ginger is great. I can see being able to use this for a lot of purposes. Delish! (I do use low sodium soy sauce)

Simple Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
These are very tender and I think the blueberries made a big difference. They are a little eggy compared to a crepe or pancake. Overall these were well received.

Oven-Baked Onion Rings

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
For a baked version of onion rings these were very good. I did add seasoning to the flour, egg white and panko crumbs. Also, I found that using the convection setting on the oven helped to crisp them up really well.

Mom's Potato Latkes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Thanks for a great recipe, Lindsay. We enjoyed these very much. I took your advice and used tongs to grab the potatoes without a lot of liquid. Note: I peel russet potatoes and place in cold water in a salad spinner. Then use the food processor to grate the potatoes. The grated potatoes go back into the cold water in the salad spinner. Triple rinse the potatoes until the water is no longer starchy. Spin dry, shake and spin again.

Joyce's Simple Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
This is really easy and perfect for when you are in a time bind. It isn't the very best sauce I have had but the kids liked it and there were certainly no complaints. For ease alone, this is a keeper.

Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
I am not sure why this recipe has been waiting for a photo for 11 years. It is an excellent alternative to Cream of Soup casseroles. I am not sure how much the hard boiled eggs add to this recipe, I suppose you could leave them out or substitute chicken or sausage. If I make this again I would combine the rice, chilies, sauce and part of the cheese together and skip the layering steps. Topped with cheese makes a beautiful presentation.

Jenny's Seasoned Croutons

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
These are really tasty with just a bit of a kick. I baked them for about 15 minutes total, then turn off the oven and just let them sit in the oven to fully dry out without over browning.

Yummy and Easy Egg Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
This is definately for mustard lovers, mind you I don't actually measure mustard - I just squirt it and use what suits my family. I would up the eggs to 4 eggs for 4 sandwiches.

Blue Cheese Horseradish Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
This was pretty good. I did scale back the amount of mayonnaise, sour cream and milk and left the other ingredients about the same. I love blue cheese so I made sure to add the full amount.

Roast Chicken with Curry Paste

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Wow, we love this. I used a mild curry paste, roasted the chicken and once done set it aside to rest covered with foil. Blotted out some of the chicken fat from the pan and added tater tots to the roasting pan. The tater tots cooked while the chicken rested and the vegetables cooked. It was a lovely meal.

Bison Tenderloin with Cherry-Onion Chutney

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
There must be an error in the cooking directions on this recipe, in step 2. It has you cooking at 425 for an hour and 10 minutes for medium rare. That is way too long. I checked the bison council website and they recommend searing the meat stove top and cooking at 225 - so that is what I did. The Bison tenderloin was so tender you could cut it with a fork and the Cherry Onion chutney made a lovely addition.

Pork for Tamales

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
This is pretty much how we usually make our pork for tamales but then the pork is mixed with chili sauce, green chiles and cheese so the pork itself doesn't need to be highly seasoned. I question the amount of pork for 16 servings. Is this supposed to be 16 tamales? You might be able to get 16 tamales out of this 1 pound of meat but I doubt it. I usually do 10 lbs at a time. When we are making tamales we don't just make a few.

Octodogs

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
What a fun way to do hotdogs. The kids loved them. If you cut them the wrong way, as we did with one, it looks like a palm tree. Hubby said he would prefer his served on a sea of chili next time.
