Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
This was very good and super easy to make. I followed other reviewers suggestions and put the ketchup/brown sugar combo on top, instead of on the bottom. My husband liked it but thought I could cut down on the brown sugar a little bit next time, which I will.

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Oh my goodness, was this good! I followed the recipe with one exception, which was cubing the chicken instead of cooking the breasts whole. My daughter asked for seconds, and my hubby had thirds, then proceeded to clean out the remnants inside the crock pot. There was nothing left! The only thing I might change in the future is to only use 3/4 of a package of the Italian dressing mix because I think it might improve the overall taste a bit. This is going into the "keeper" pile. **Update - made this again but used Healthy Request Cream of Chicken soup instead of regular - this was still delicious even though it cut out a lot of fat.

Easy Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I'm going to give this 3 stars because it is a good base recipe, but needs a little bit of help in the flavor department. Here's what I did to tweak it. I added a can of frozen apple juice concentrate to improve the flavor and a couple of tsps of cinnamon. I used half a can of chicken broth instead of 2 tbs of chicken soup base. I cut the pork into bites during the last half hour of cooking to give this more of a pork stew kind of feel. I also added 2 tsp of cold water to 2 tsp of cornstarch, stirred it until it was smooth and added it to the crock pot. This thickened the sauce up quite nicely. I served it over rice and my husband said it tasted like a sweet and sour pork dish. It was much better with these changes but not something that we will make again.

6 Can Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
This is a yummy, very easy chili recipe. The thing that caught my eye was that this recipe can be changed to match anyone's tastes depending on how much spice and seasoning you want to add to it. Personally, I am not a fan of spicy so I made the chili per the directions, and added a bit of seasoning just to enhance the flavor. I took about half of the chili out of the pan and then added some jalepenos and other spices for my husband, who loves spicy chili.

Original NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
It's official! You just can't go wrong with Toll House cookies! I made several batches of these cookies for Cookies Across America. For the first batch, I followed the recipe but did not add nuts. The second batch, I added nuts but I pounded the nuts until they were very fine - almost a powder. This is how my husband likes them. The third batch, I added some Nestle white chocolate chips, and they were a nice contradiction to the dark chocolate. Rave reviews all around!

Louisiana Yam-Apple Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
This is a great quick and easy side dish! I am not a huge fan of canned sweet potatoes but I did like them in this dish. My husband loved it and finished off the leftovers. The only change I will make next time is to only drain half of the cans of the yams and apples. Even after cooking for 30 minutes there was still too much liquid. And I did omit the pecans because I'm allergic.

Apricot Glazed Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
I made this for dinner last night. It was good, but not what I was expecting. I thought it would have a glaze, but instead it made a very thin and not very flavorful sauce. I tried thickening it with some cornstarch but it really didn't take shape. I cooked it on low in the crock pot for 8 hours and it was a tad dry but so soft that it fell apart. I'm going to shred the rest of it and add BBQ sauce to make sandwiches.

Beef and Bean Crescent Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
I made this at a friend's house when I was playing nurse to her. She and her husband both liked them but said that they felt that the crescents were too sweet for the dish...the sweetness didn't go with the beef and beans. They did think the filling was pretty good. I'd have to agree. My husband didn't like these at all because of the crescents but he did say he'd like the filling if it was wrapped in a tortilla.

Sweet Potato Casserole III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
This was a very easy recipe to make. Something that even a beginner cook could do well. I used 2 lbs of sweet potatoes, per the directions and found that I had too much mash. Next time I'll use 1 1/2 lbs. I also reduced the sugar to a cup...the mixture was already sweet enough. As for the corn flake topping, I liked it, but I'm not sure I like it on sweet potatoes.

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
I thought this was pretty good, and I'm not a huge tuna fan. My hubby had asked for tuna casserole, and I had never made one before, so I gave this one a try. I followed the recipe as written but thought it looked a tad dry so I added about 1/2 cup of sour cream. My hubby had 3 helpings and asked that next time I put crushed potato chips on top.

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
I'm only giving this 3 stars because I followed the recipe and it turned out very dry. However, the taste was still delicious. I will try it again using more bananas and perhaps cutting down on the flour a bit.

Lemon Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
This was so yummy! Very refreshing for a hot summer day. I brought this to a meeting and it was literally gone in minutes - people were scraping the plate to get the lest remnants of cheese. I used Countrytime lemonade. Perfect!

Caramelized Apple Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
My son has been craving caramel apples ever since he got his braces, so I thought this recipe would be a big hit! Unfortunately, I had problems with it. I followed the recipe exactly but the sauce was very runny and never firmed up. Perhaps the type of apples I used (red delicious) were too juicy. That being said, the taste was still very yummy, and we can't stop eating them. It's just very messy and not all that pleasant to look at. Next time I will try a different type of apple and I will cut back on the corn syrup to see if the caramel firms up.

Corn Pudding Custard

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
I normally do not make microwaved meals, but I needed something quick for a last minute invite to a potluck. I made it exactly per the instructions and no one liked this dish. It was very salty, and the overall taste just didn't mesh.
