BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
When I first opened the slow cooker to shred the pork, I was like "oh great another recipe wasted." But like the directions say, it will seem like it's not working but it does. I just pulled it apart by hand. Next time, I will trim the meat also, but that's a reflection on my abilities, not the recipe. Very easy to put together and can reflect different flavors based on what kind of BBQ sauce the cook likes.

Slow-Cooked Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
This was good and I would make it again. 8 hours was a little long, though, and the chicken was dry. I also used brown rice instead of white and it got mushy, so I think 6-7 hours would be a more comfortable time frame. I also didn't have Parmesan cheese, so I will be definitely make sure I have that on hand next time.

Quick Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Best go to recipe ever. Sometimes I top with just a sprinkling of bread crumbs, sometimes I don't. Either way, it's amazing.

Johnsonville® Chipotle Monterey Jack Cheese Chicken Sausage Mexican Market Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I was really surprised by how much I like this. Does make a ton of soup, so half the batch went into the freezer for dinner next week.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Very good. I used two bone-in half breasts and adjusted the recipe for smaller size. This was fall off the bone fantastic. Loved the flavors. Would definitely make again.

Crescent Pizza Pockets

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
The taste of these were fine. I didn't think the sweetness of the crescent rolls took anything away. I think the execution could use some work. Trying to seal those suckers and then get them in to a 6x4 rectangle took a little trial and error. Also, if I used the amounts that the recipe suggested, these would've been bursting from the seem. I cut back on cheese and pepperoni and managed to get them folded, but not diagonally.

Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
This was pretty amazing. Even my hubby enjoyed it. I did pound my chicken breast out for better baking, but everything about this from the wet ingrediants to the dry ingrediants was spot on. Went great with some pasta and veggies on the side.

A-Maize-ing Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
This was a really great simple recipe. Not sure I'd change anything about it. There's all kinds of things I'm sure you could add, but this tasted fine as written.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
As written, this recipe is okay. Fast, easy instructions but I can't imagine fitting all of that into a square cake pan. I halved thesour cream and cheese and used very little of the tortilla chips. I did as some PPs suggested and mixed the sour cream with half a can of refried bean and topped the meat mixture with that. I also added some chopped onion and garlic. Perfect with the adjustments, bland and way disproportionate without.

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
I love when a recipe comes together the first time! A nice easy ingrediant list and easy directions made for a great Meatless Monday dinner. My husband even finished his plate! The only thing we added was some garlic that I sauteed with the spinach. One note, though, when dealing with frozen spinach, make sure to rinse and drain completely, otherwise you get a funky taste.

Garlic and Ranch Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
These had a wonderful flavor to them but as the recipe is written there's way way too much liquid. Ended up adding about a 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, which I was trying to avoid doing. May use cheddar cheese as the binder next time.

30-Minute Minestrone

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Nice and easy. I usually leave out the spinach because my husband doesn't like it. I like the amount of pepper but if I was making this for anyone else, I'd probably use just a dash.

Grandma's Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This will probably be my go to recipe for mac and cheese from now on. Husband even went back for seconds. It is a little bland, though. Definitely make sure you use sharp cheddar. The only thing I did differently was use spiral pasta because I didn't have elbow.

Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
These taste just like Red Lobster's biscuits and I was surprised that they are really easy to make. If I decided last minute to add them to a meal, it really doesn't take long to whip them up.

Aaahh! Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
The recipe as written is good but it's bland and kind of basic. I like to add celery and onion I've sautéed to soften them up a bit and some garlic. I've also started to used homemade chicken broth as I've found the store bought stuff is just sodium infused nastiness.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
This is my go to meal when I have company coming. One of the first meals I made in the first month of being married when I was first learning to really "cook" and even for a novice this was easy. One of hubby's friends refers to this as "the best pot pie I've ever eaten."

Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Always comes out great. I've made this countless times and never have any issues with it. Makes great leftovers and really hits the spot. I love how easy it is and that it can either be a side dish or a meal depending on what's going on.

Herbed Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I love making this soup. It's so filling and just gets better the longer it sits (FABULOUS LEFT OVERS). Went great with some herb rolls that I made. I do, however, leave out the rosemary. I like it, but I think it give this soup a funny taste.

Cheese Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
For my first time ever really melting cheese for a sauce, I found this recipe not only extremely easy, but DELICIOUS! I can't wait to make it again. I think I will cut back on the salt a little, though, as I like to use medium or sharp cheddar which already have kind of a salty bite to them.

2-Step Garlic Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
So easy and so good. The second time I made this, I cut up half of a small onion and sautéed it in the oil before I added my chops and garlic. I think when I make it again, I'll do the chops and onion at the same time, and then either add the garlic for a minute or two before I remove the chops or just add the garlic after the soup and milk. My garlic just kept getting done too fast.
