Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake
Rating: Unrated
BlueLake's rating

I thought this was a great recipe. My only difficutly was deciding whether it called for putting the chops in with bone. I opted to cut the meat from the bone before putting in to the mixture and baking. I also chose to add some cayanne pepper(just a little!!) to the mix to spice it up a bit. Also,.. I did bake it a little longer to make sure the potatoes were done!

I've made this recipe about 25 times now and every time is has been delicious. I absolutely love it! I make a few changes, like adding more cheese, topping with crispy fried onions 5 minutes before finished baking. This recipe is awesome and easy and fun to make. Leftovers are great also. Thanks!

This was really good. I did goof though. I cut up the chicken breasts instead of leaving whole pieces. Read the recipe too fast. Still turned out excellent. Just adjusted cooking time to 30 min. Sauce was delicious also. So, if you want to try this recipe and make it FAST, cut chicken breasts in 1 inch pieces, put everything in pyrex and bake at 350 for 30 min. Served it with steamed broccoli and wedged parmasean potatoes. The sauce complimented the broccoli well. Might try adding some nuts to the chicken for some crunch. Thanks for the recipe.

I test drove this recipe since I will be making them for my family at Thanksgiving. Although good, its just a pretty basic recipe. I will add caynne or chili powder for more kick. The filling doesn't really adequately fill all the eggs. I'm thinking about adding chilled chopped shrimp when I make them for the family. Paprika is a must for presentation, and I prefer a slice of olive on top of that. Makes it very pretty.

Chocolate Pecan Pie VI

This is exactly what I was looking for. I was trying to recreate a chocolate pecan pie that I often had as a child, (it was store bought frozen) and this was on right on the mark. This has a nice fudgy cake like consistency with a nice slightly crunchy top, plus the pecans. The ONLY thing I changed was to decrease the pecans, I used 1 cup of pecans and it came out pretty and perfect and delicious. Thanks very much for the recipe.

Wild River Bloody Mary Mix

I have to give this a 3*. My family competes professionally at chili/BBQ cookoffs and I made this recipe for the Bloody Mary contest and the 'testers' all grimmaced and said "no way." I turned it in anyway and out of 10 entries, mine was not a winner (1-3). I give it a 3 because there is always the possiblity I made an error. However, the next week, I entered another Bloody Mary contest using my recipe and won 1st place. I thought the liquid seemed thin. May try again.

I made this cake for the fun of it. I held back a bit on the nuts and wish I hadn't. I took half to my parents house and 2-3 days later they are still talking about how good it was. Very good, EASY recipe. Thank you.

Egg in a Cup

My family has been making these for YEARS. I generally add a sprinkly of the grated Mexican blend cheese to mine. However, 7 crackers per cup is WAY to much cracker for one egg. Just about anything can be added to this, Fritos are a fun change, and adding a bit of chili can be good also.

This is the first recipe from this site that I had very low expections, and I was wrong!! This was wonderful! My changes: Omitted bacon, added broccoli and mushrooms, sprinkled paprika on top to add to the 'browned' look, which it did beautifully. I love this recipe!

SO good! I love this recipe. Have made it several times, and have turned family and co-workers on to this and they all love it also. UPDATE: Was craving this last night but didn't have Mt. Dew. Used juice from a jar of mandarin oranges instead. DELISH!

Aunt Rachel's Cheese Souffle

I'm going to have to critize. This misses the mark. First, it's not a souffle. It's a baked egg and cheese dish. A souffle needs to have eggs separated and folded together after having been whipped. I'll play with it and come up with a breakfast casserole, but wouldn't consider making this to serve as a 'souffle' again.

I made this tonight and it was delicious! Added fresh mushroom to the pot. Served with blue cheese butter, also from this site, mashed potatos and steamed zucchini and onions. Make me look forward to going to work tomorrow since it will be my lunch also. Great recipe.
