Simple Cajun Seasoning

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I have no idea how authentic this is, but I was in a pinch since I had a recipe that called for cajun seasoning and I never buy pre-mixed spices. Worked very well in the recipe! I can definitely see how some garlic and onion powders would have worked well in this as well.

Sour Cream Pork Chop and Vidalia® Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
Fantastic!! The ONLY complaint I have is that the cook time is way off. I used THICK pork chops and set the timer to check them at 30 minutes- they were already at 170!! They would have been absolutely dead at 60 minutes, they were overdone as it was. That being said, the sauce and cook method are awesome and we'll definitely be making this one again.

Pumpkin White Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
The texture of these cookies is absolutely amazing! Cakey, soft- absolutely delightful! I really didn't think it was flavorful enough, though, even after doubling the cinnamon and vanilla and using a heaping 1/4 tsp of cloves. I would definitely at least double all seasonings if making again, and sub half of the sugar with brown sugar. I also found that 2 Tbsp made way too large a cookie, I was much more pleased with them when made with 1 Tbsp of cookie dough. And maybe sub cinnamon chips for the white chocolate? The recipe doesn't say to, but I would also grease the pan, these guys like to stick if you don't. But again- AWESOME texture! This one shouldn't take much work to bring it up to 5 stars!

Chiliville Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
Definitely a good chili, though I did make some changes. I omitted the celery because my husband doesn't like it. I only used 2 cans of beans and subbed 24 oz of salsa for all of the diced tomato. Turned out great!

Runza Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
We enjoyed these. They're essentially just Runza (also called bierock) filling piled on a bun rather than inside dough. I did up the mustard, add some garlic powder, and add a few tablespoons of ketchup.

Harvest Pumpkin-Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
We REALLY enjoyed these! Soft, cakey, sweet, and full of pumpkin flavor. They don't spread at all as they bake. I added nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice to the dry ingredients. I also subbed pecans for walnuts. Great!

Miniature Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
We enjoyed these, just sweet enough. I think they could have benefited from a little allspice and brown sugar Splenda blend for some of the sugar, but overall they were very enjoyable!

Italian Sausage Market Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
I REALLY enjoyed this- my husband not so much. I did disguise the veggies, because between my husband and daughter they wouldn't have eaten this as written. I started by adding the veggies to the food processor and pureeing them. Then I added the seasonings, egg, and meat and processed it at well. The texture was awesome and I LOVED it!!!

Johnsonville® Italian Sausage and Pepper Medley

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
I nice, easy to throw together recipe that the family enjoyed. I added extra pepper and onion and served over orecchiette pasta. This would also be great on a sandwich, over rice, or even on it's own!

Swedish-ish Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
Our family enjoyed this recipe. I misread it and didn't have enough time to use the crock pot, so I browned the meatballs in a skillet and finished in the oven, making the sauce while they were cooking. When the meatballs were finished I added them back to the sauce and served over egg noodles. I did end up adding 1/2 tsp garlic powder, a tsp of mustard, 1/2 tsp paprika, and black pepper to the sauce, as well as using fresh mushrooms and doubling the sour cream. If I make this again I think I'll double the sauce for the noodles I served it with!

Colorful Kale and Spinach Salad and Homemade Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2013
This was definitely an enjoyable salad, though I did back off on the kale- maybe this was written for smaller bunches of kale, but the kind at our grocery store is always in massive bunches! I also used a whole bell pepper. This would also be great with mushrooms and red onion added!

Boneless Pork Chop with Shallot Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
I omitted the shallot since I didn't have any and added a little parmesan cheese and garlic to the sauce. Turned out great!

Apple Slab Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
I used half brown sugar in the filling and added a little nutmeg and clove. I left the crust soft enough to press it into the pan rather than rolling it out. Turned out very nicely!

Italian Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
As written this is a decent recipe, but with a few simple changes it's great! I added 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp rosemary, 1 tsp oregano, and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes. I like my meatloaf with a bit of a glaze on top, so I brushed with ketchup mixed with Italian seasoning. Next time I will omit ketchup from meat mixture entirely and only use it in the topping. My only real complaint is with the texture- very crumbly. Next time, I will omit the bread crumbs and replace with bread and milk. Sounds like a lot of changes, but really the original recipe is pretty much intact. The provolone, fresh basil, and sun-dried tomatoes are right on the mark and I'll definitely be repeating this one!

Hawaiian Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
We really enjoyed these! I did use fresh meat and formed my own patties rather than using the frozen ones, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly!

Asian Bison Short Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
We enjoyed this, but I think it would have been better with a more flavorful seasoning mix in with the flour. That being said, very impressed with the bison itself! Lean, tender, and flavorful. I'll definitely be trying out more recipes with it in the future!

Smoked Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
Everyone loved it! The only suggestion was to up the sun dried tomato just a little, but it's really great as is!

Maple Basted Roast Turkey with Cranberry Pan Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2013
This was absolutely wonderful! Made for a family dinner and it went over so well. I'll admit, I skimped on ingredients- I didn't use pure maple syrup, just what I had in the pantry. I also didn't have fresh sage, so I used dried. I kept the flavors the same, but I made the sauce differently than called for in the recipe. I used fresh cranberries and cooked them in the cranberry juice with 1/2 C of OJ, brown sugar, and a little cinnamon. Brought to a boil and cooked the cranberries down. I simmered until the turkey was done, then added the drippings to the cranberry mixture before adding in corn starch slurry. Raves all around, people topped EVERYTHING on their plates with it and kept asking for the recipe.
