Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
The first time I tried this recipe it turned out absolutely delicious. Nice an moist and the gravy it made was wonderful. A bit salty but that can be adjusted by using low sodium products. I tried it again a second time and it was tough. I did cook it at a lower heat and I am not sure if it was the same cut of meat I had the first time. Definitely a keeper. My husband is a hunter and I plan on trying this with venison.

Herbed Citrus Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Since I have a garden full of fresh herbs I used this recipe as a starting point. I went a little crazy picking a few too many herbs but just had to use them all. In a bowl I combined the zest and juice of one lemon, the olive oil and I used approximately one tablespoon each of the following fresh herbs: rosemary, thyme, sage, chives, parsley, and lemon balm. Instead of garlic powder I minced one garlic clove and added 2 tablespoons of worcestershire in place of the salt. I let the chicken hang out in the marinade for almost 24 hours. I had frozen extra chicken breasts from two different packages of chicken and used a total of 4 breast halves. Two pieces of the chicken turned out real juicy and tender and the other two were more firm and dry. The final result will depend on your chicken. I've tried similar recipes using dried herbs and they turned out fantastic - I just happened to have fresh on hand and love it even more that way. Thanks for the great recipe Victoria!

Ashley and Whitney's Popcorn and Pretzel Sweet Snack Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
I used 4 cups freshly popped popcorn and added dried blueberries that was a delicious addition to this recipe. I also used up some sliced almonds I had on hand, toasting them in a dry frying pan before adding. I had trouble with melting a couple bags of white morsels before turning to a premium brand made with real cocoa butter that melted like a dream. This was delicious and I'm not even a white morsel fan. Yum!

No-Cook Eggnog Ice Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
When I saw this recipe I couldn't wait to try it because you can't get much simpler than a 4-ingredient no cook ice cream, right? I don't care much for sweetened condensed milk because I think it leaves a major aftertaste so I was a little worried that this ice cream would have that issue. It was absolutely scrumptious and oh so easy. If you are looking for a consistency of a shake then it's good to go right out of the ice cream freezer but if you are looking for an ice cream to scoop into dishes I recommend following the tip to freeze in an airtight container for a few hours or overnight.

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
I had never made lemon bars of any kind and had been craving lemon dessert and decided on this recipe. I followed the advice of other reviewers and made 1-1/2 times the amount of filling. I'm glad I did because it was the perfect amount. I followed the rest of the recipe as written and jiggled the pan and touched the center of the filling to make sure it was set. It seemed to be after the 20 minutes the recipe states. Not thinking about me increasing the amount of filling I didn't think to bake for additional time. They could have used a few more minutes to firm up just a tad more but they were great. We couldn't eat just one. Thanks so much for the great recipe. It's one I'll keep and make again!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
Perfection as is! My oven tends to run a little on the warm side so I make sure to check my muffins with a toothpick - once it has a small bit of moist crumb stuck to the pick then they're done. There's a fine line between perfectly cooked and over done so watch carefully. Thank for for a delicious recipe.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
This is so yummy. It is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I made it for dinner and served it with a side salad. The leftovers were great warmed up for breakfast the next morning. I shredded 2 cups of fresh potatoes, rinsed and spun dry in a salad spinner and it worked perfectly instead of buying frozen hash browns. My package of sausage links had 14 so I cut the other two up and put on top of the muffins prior to baking. Definitely will be making again!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
The only way I had ever eaten spaghetti squash was with spaghetti sauce. This recipe has been on my list to make for awhile now and seeing that it was a Myplate recipe it moved to the top of that list. All I can say is YUM! I am so glad I tried this and am wondering what took me so long. All the ingredients went well together and has a wonderful flavor! If you don't have feta cheese I think Parmesan would be a great substitute. I think the addition of some grilled shrimp would be great too! This will be in my regular rotation, especially for a light healthy lunch option. Thanks for a keeper.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I am a deep fried cauliflower lover but tend to stay away from it due to it being far from healthy. This recipe is a great alternative. The longer you roast it and the deeper in color it gets the better it is IMO. Love it!

Caramel Corn Treat Bags

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
There's just one word for this popcorn - YUM! I've made this three times within a week and can't get enough of it. I'm sure the phase will pass (or should I say I hope it does) but for now I'm enjoying myself! A lot of people like to use microwave popcorn but I popped my own on the stove and measured it in a wide mouth quart jar. The first time I made it I packed the jars pretty tight and there didn't seem to be enough caramel to cover it all well. My second batch was 4 quarts loosely packed and it was better but not quite covered like I would have liked it. So on my third batch I lightly packed it and used three quarts and I thought it was perfect. During the baking process I stirred it every 15 minutes and baked as directed but it was harder than I would have liked. I only baked the 3rd batch for right around 30 minutes. Using only three quarts of popcorn allowed the caramel to coat every piece. The last batch was my favorite, nicely coated and a didn't seem to be as hard as the other batches - a little easier on my teeth. I used a foil roasting pan and it worked out perfectly - clean up was a breeze so be sure to spray your foil/pan with cooking spray. Be sure when you stir it to keep the popcorn separated as best as you can and as flat as possible in your pan. It will make breaking it apart much easier. When it was done baking I kept stirring and breaking large clumps apart while it was cooling. This recipe is a keeper!

Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
Fantastic! I scaled this recipe to 2 servings to give it a try due to having limited basil on hand and having tried balsamic vinegar in a chicken recipe and not being a big fan. This was fantastic. I think it could use less vinegar and still be great. I think it may even be great with raw apple cider vinegar. I love that this is part of the Myplate recipe collection. I'll be making this one again.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Not that this needs another 5 star review but it really does deserve it. It's my go-to slaw recipe. Wouldn't change a thing. Yum!

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Love this! My sausage gravy used to turn out like paste - I am so glad I found this recipe. Sausage was overly abundant so you could easily double the rest of the ingredients or use 1/2 the amount of sausage - or keep as is if you are a meat lover! My go-to recipe from now on.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
If you are looking for a good, moist, fudgy cake look no further. This was excellent. I made it for and early Valentine's Day for my husband and the first thing he said was "This is how I like my cake". I followed the recipe to a T. I made my own buttermilk using lemon juice/milk substitute and I frosted it with Rich Chocolate Frosting. Thanks so much for a very enjoyable cake!

Sloppy BBQ Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I am not one to like jarred sloppy joe sauce and refuse to buy it. I have tried a few recipes for sloppy joes and have been disappointed. They usually have tomato paste, which I am not a fan of, or include vinegar. To me vinegar ruins a sloppy joe. This recipe did not dissapoint. The only change I made was to the ketchup. I used 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 our favorite barbeque sauce (Bull's Eye). I especially like that it does not call for onions and peppers (hubby won't eat 'em) and still had excellent flavor. This recipe is delicious. Definitely a keeper. Thanks Laurie Hauser!

Turkey & Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Delicious! My husband and I do not care for really spicy chili and this recipe had just the right amount of spice for us. Using what I had in my pantry I had to make a couple changes. I substituted one quart of home canned tomatoes for the tomato juice and used only one 15-oz. can of tomato sauce and one 15-oz. can of black beans (all I had). My husband doesn’t like onions and peppers so I had to leave those out, however I did use onion powder. I am sure they would have been delicious. Even with the substitutions, the chili was wonderful!

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
7/11/2010: I used this marinade on venison kebobs and my husband said if I was rating this to give it 5 stars. Now if he says it's a five star that means it's real good! He told me twice while eating how much he likes this marinade. I can't wait to try it on steaks and chicken now! Definitely a keeper. 8/24/2010: Update - Since my last review I have tried this on chicken breasts and ribeyes and they were absolutely delicious. This is perfect for any cut of meat. I am thinking of trying it on pork now! This is now my go-to marinade recipe!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
This barbeque sauce was very tasty. I cut the recipe in half and it made a pint sized jar. I inadvertedly used the regular amount of molasses instead of 1/2 and it was still very good. It was a sweet sauce which put me in the mind of Sweet Baby Rays - my adding to much molasses may have contributed to the sweetness. Delicious on both barbeque ribs and chicken. I will be making this again.
