Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
This is a very simple, traditional recipe for pot roast, and it yields tasty, tender results. I also like using the cornstarch and browning sauce -- it makes a silky, flavorful gravy. My only suggestion is to add a little more seasoning; it might be a smidgen too bland without it. Also, try making it in your crock pot for 8-9 hours on low or 5 hours on high!

Pork Chops Over Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Delicious! This dish was really easy and had lots of flavor. I did reduce the cayenne pepper a little bit; I think it would have been a bit too much if I wouldn't have.

Garlic Seasoned Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
The baking temperature and time were spot-on for my chops; they turned out deliciously moist and temped at about 155 degrees when I took them out of the oven. They didn't look very appetizing, though; the color wasn't very good, and the egg cooked on the chops in little flaky bits, which was a bit strange. All in all, however, this was pretty good. Thanks.

Butterfinger® Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Love it! It's very gooey and sweet, but it's great. Would love trying something new with it next time too, like perhaps mixing crunched-up Butterfinger bars in with the battery.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
I love this recipe. It produces fork-tender, totally delicious pork chops every time, and I absolutely adore mushrooms. I love it with rice or mashed potatoes. My BF doesn't care much for it, but he's weird. I think he just doesn't like recipes with cream of mushroom soup...total bummer, because I love cream of mushroom soup with any meat. :)

Country-Style Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
I've been eating country-style steak my whole life, and this is the perfect way to make it. You can also simmer it on the stovetop for about an hour if you don't want to turn on the oven. Perfect with homemade mashed potatoes, but you will want to make extra gravy!

Heath® Bar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I thought these were very good. When I tasted the batter, I was afraid they were going to be too sweet, but this wasn't the case at all; the flavor was actually perfect. Two things I would like to point out, though: First of all, I baked mine for 12 minutes, and I think I should have taken them out a minute or two before that. Secondly, I think you should use softened butter in this recipe, as with most cookie recipes. The recipe didn't say. Anyways, thanks...I love Heath bars!

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry from Birds Eye®

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Not too shabby for a quick weeknight dinner. I marinated my steak tips for several hours in Teriyaki, Soy Sauce and Worcestershire and seasoned my veggies with salt, pepper and a bit of garlic powder. I think it might have been a little bland without it, but it was pretty good as I prepared it.

1-2-3 Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
Wow! I really enjoyed this, and it was super easy. I used a 14-oz package of Johnsonville's New Orleans-style andouille sausage and a 10-oz can of chicken. I did add a sauteed onion and green pepper because I like them in my jambalaya. Great recipe!

Spaghetti Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
I winced a little when I added the cream of mushroom soup to this recipe...I actually really like cream of mushroom soup in certain dishes, but I just didn't think it would be right in this dish. Surprisingly -- it was ok. However, the recipe was really missing something. If I were to make it again, I would cut down on the cheddar cheese a little (even though I'm a cheese LOVER...it was a bit much, and it made the consistency of the spaghetti a little off), use a little less pasta (maybe even half), and add more seasonings -- like garlic, black pepper, etc. I might even try adding about a half a pound of Italian sausage for a little more flavor. Overall, the dish was okay, but it was just a little too bland and boring for the expense of the ingredients. If I make it again, I will tweak it significantly. Thanks for a good base, though.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This is an excellent starter recipe, especially for someone who doesn't really feel confident in the kitchen. I have tried it the original way, and it's pretty good. For better results though, try adding baby carrots, quartered red potatoes, garlic powder, and lots of black pepper. If you don't like the color of the gravy, try adding a bit of Kitchen Bouquet, a packet of gravy mix and water or a can/jar of beef gravy. It's easy to play around with: Regardless, you will end up with a tender roast, and you can always add a little black pepper/other spices to spice it up at the table if necessary. A wonderful confidence booster for new cooks and a good meal for those who are looking for something quick and easy before they get out of the door in the mornings.

Basil Chicken Ravioli Carbonara

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
I thought this recipe was wonderful! I used to work at an Italian restaurant, and this recipe was very reminiscent of the Penne Carbonara dish that we sold there. I didn't add ravioli -- I simply served the sauce over penne noodles -- but the sauce was to die for! I was a bit concerned about the thickness of the sauce, but I let it simmer for a bit and then added a handful of cheese. Next time, I think I will try it with the ravioli!

Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
Yum. Made this after a steak dinner a few weeks ago but forgot to leave a review! We had two leftover baked potatoes as well as a leftover grilled onion, so everything worked perfectly.! I diced everything up and sauteed it in the frying pan and had an absolutely DELICIOUS breakfast. I saw that another review suggested adding the onion in for the second half of the cooking time. My onion blackened a little bit as well when I threw it in at the same time as the taters, but I didn't mind; it gave it a great taste, and I prefer my onions very well done anyway. However, I would suggest that those who don't like their onions to be overdone to toss them in after the potatoes have started softening a bit.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
This is a great recipe! The homemade meatballs are a winner, but you can always use the store bought kind if you want to make things easier. When they simmer in the sauce (I like putting mine in my slow cooker on high, then turning them down to "warm" for parties), they get the most delicious flavor. Try them -- you won't be disappointed!!

Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
First of all, these brownies are more like a red velvet/cheesecake swirl brownie than a brownie with cream cheese FROSTING. Anyway, I think they're pretty good, but they aren't perfect. They were done at 30 minutes, and they make a lovely presentation. The cheesecake-style topping is also delicious, and I love the suggestion to reserve a bit of the red velvet batter to make swirling a little bit easier and more successful. However, I think the red velvet layer could use a bit of work...the texture came out a bit "gummy" to me, and I think it could use a little more flavor as well. Otherwise, it's a pretty good recipe...thanks!

Quick and Simple Broccoli and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
My mom has made broccoli and cheese this way my whole life. I like it, but I don't love it. It just isn't quite as cheesy. I prefer to make a cheese sauce myself out of cheese, milk and butter for a really good broccoli and cheese. If I'm just throwing together something quick to eat with a weeknight dinner, I cut Velveeta into cubes and toss it in with the broccoli after I've drained it, then put the lid on and put it on the burner on "Warm", stir it up, then serve. Even though the cheese is processed and some people don't like that, I definitely think it's a better way than this method.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I love this recipe. The meat patties have such delicious flavor and the whole thing is so easy to throw together. The only suggestion that I have is to use low-sodium cream of chicken soup. It's great with the regular soup, but using the low-sodium soup will make it a little less salty and a smidgen healthier. Thanks for the great recipe!

Caramel Corn Treat Bags

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I thought the caramel corn was absolutely delicious! I have never made it before, but I will definitely be making it again. Reese's pieces and peanuts make great stir-ins!

Crescent Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
I actually cheated and used "Little Smokies" because I'm not a big fan of hot dogs. I had no idea it was this easy to make "pigs in a blanket." Very tasty and super easy...and my boyfriend loved them, which is always a plus.
