Traditional Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
This was definitely a zippier coleslaw than we are used to, but, very tasty! We really liked the slight "heat" you get from the horseradish. It was a tad too tart for our taste. I will make again, but, add a little more sugar next time.

Sweet and Sour Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
This was a nice healthier alternative to fried sweet and sour pork. We really liked the flavor, but, it didn't get quite thick enough to make a sticky glaze on the pork. I added a small cornstarch slurry and it thickened up perfectly. I will make again, but, next time try with chicken. I am sure it will be wonderful too!

This was a nice twist on a basic margarita. The lemon flavor was wonderful and the addition of lemon lime soda was very refreshing!

Valerie's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
I made a fruit salad with strawberries, blueberries, red grapes, & bananas sprinkled with a little sugar and lemon juice. I wanted to kick it up a notch for company by adding a fruit dip. This was a huge hit with my family - and I got bonus points with my Father-In-Law who loved it. It was creamy and very tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

Honeymoon Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I am not really sure how to rate this because as written - this recipe did not work for us. It was very thick & sweet & the sugar stayed crystallized so it was crunchy and grainy. It also didn't incorporate well on low speed. After trying it the first time I decided to try and adjust the recipe. I transferred it to a blender and added cider vinegar to taste - probably total about 1/2 cup. After blending on high with the extra liquid the grainy texture completely disappeared and the dressing was sweet, but, also had a slight tang to it. It was personally still too sweet for me, but, my husband thought it was great after the changes and gave it five stars. The sweetness may just be a personal preference, but, as written the dressing was really thick almost like a mayonnaise and very grainy. If you like creamy French or Catalina dressing I would give it a try, but, I would reduce the sugar and add an acid like vinegar or lemon juice. If you like it - great. If not, it was very easy to make adjustments to your taste and still make it work.

Lemon Asparagus Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
I made the recipe as is using broccoli instead of asparagus because it is what I had in the house. After tasting it I definitely think it needed more lemon juice because I was getting a strong olive oil flavor. I think it is just going to depend on how big or how much juice your lemon yields. Just make sure you taste it to see if it needs adjustment. I used the zest of one lemon, but, added the juice of another whole lemon because I was not getting a lot of juice out of it. I liked it as is, but, my husband sprinkled some red pepper flakes into his and loved it. Thanks for the recipe!

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
Prepared exactly as stated with the exception of grilling over medium high heat instead of high heat. I have burnt vegetables grilling over high heat, so, I thought I better play it safe. They cooked perfectly, had great flavor, and still retained a nice crisp bite which we liked. Grilled with our pork chops and saved us from heating up the kitchen!

Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
I cooked three large baking potatoes on low for 7-1/2 hours. They were cooked perfectly. Based on other reviews - I decided not to wrap in foil and just rub in the olive oil and salt and put straight into the slow cooker. The outside had a slight crisp to it that we liked, but, wasn't as crunchy as you get in the regular oven. This would definitely be a big help if you are cooking something at a different temperature in the oven than the potatoes would need to cook.

Honey Dijon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
I am a big fan of tangy dressings and love Dijon, so, I knew this would be a good recipe for me! I served it as a sauce to accompany roasted asparagus, but, it I will be making it again to drizzle over salad. This was not your typical honey mustard because it definitely had more of a tangy zip than a sweet flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

Stuffed Mexican Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
This was a big hit with my husband. I made a few peppers as the recipe stated and I made a few using changes suggested by other reviewers. Although the original recipe was good as is, we preferred the peppers with the adjustments made. The adjustments on the second batch were to use poblano peppers, ground turkey, & instead of putting a cube of cheese in the middle - I just uncovered the last 5 minutes of baking and added cheese to the top. I also didn't pour any additional tomato sauce on the second batch I made. Either way you go - I think you will like this recipe.

Erin's Jalapeno Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
I love hummus, so, I have been trying different recipes than just your traditional hummus. This was very good and did not have an overwhelming jalapeno flavor. I did use fresh jalapeno instead of dried and added some tahini paste. Mine was a little dry, so, I adjusted my wet ingredients accordingly. Very tasty!

Yummy Cilantro-Jalapeno Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
It was a nice twist on a basic hummus recipe. The cilantro gave it a bright flavor which I liked. It did seem very dry, so, I added a little more lemon juice and drizzled in a little olive oil. If you are a fan of traditional hummus - you may not like this one because the cilantro flavor hides the sesame taste you get from the tahini in a traditional hummus recipe.

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Rigatoni

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
This was a very easy shortcut weeknight meal to prepare. I used penne shaped pasta instead of rigatoni because it was what I had in my cabinet. I also used Johnsonville 50% pork/50% chicken mild Italian sausage to cut back on some of the fat calories. The fresh parsley brightened up the dish and gave it a fresher flavor. I rounded out the meal with a simple green salad and French rolls. Simple and tasty!

Italian BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I have prepared this recipe several times and it is really good. This is my husband's favorite recipe that I use for pork chops. It gives you a nice sweet and tangy flavor and they are so tender!

1-2-3 Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
I had high hopes for this recipe because it looked and smelled wonderful. Unfortunately, my family thought it was just ok. The recipe called for shrimp, but, in the recipe directions it said shrimp or chicken,so, I used chicken since I already had it in my freezer. I think our issue was the flavor of the rice with the diced tomatoes. It had too strong of a tomato flavor for us. I think if I had used the spicy tomatoes with chilies like another reviewer we might have liked it better. That being said - we thought the Johnsonville sausage had a really good flavor and I will definitely buy that again to use in a different recipe.

Garden Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
I have never added green pepper or onion to my coleslaw, so, I thought I would give it a try. It was definitely a nice change from my basic slaw recipe. I personally did not care for the green pepper, but, everyone else that tried it liked both the green pepper and green onion, so, I consider that a hit. I was unsure if "creamy salad dressing" meant miracle whip or a creamy slaw dressing, so, I went with a homeade creamy slaw dressing. I would definitely make again.

Easy Sausage Pizza by Johnsonville®

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
This was a very simple pizza recipe, but, very flavorful using Johnsonville sausage! The italian sausage really kicked it up a knotch. I prefer fresh dough, so, I did use that compared to a precooked crust. I go to my local pizza parlor and buy a roll of unbaked dough for around $ 3.00. It is a great time saver like using a prebaked crust, but, more flavorful. I prebake for 3-5 minutes before adding the toppings. I was a little nervous about topping with fresh sausage, so, I precooked it about 50% of way through before adding it to the pizza. It turned out perfect.
