Easy, Creamy Butternut Squash Soup...Amuse Bousche

Excellent. I used a little more carrot and tossed in a bay leaf and it turned out very well. — ellie36 10/30/2012
Garlic - Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

Garlic - Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

I loved this! The seasoning and flavorings are interchangeable and adjustable, but the crust is fantastic and the parmesan was a really nice addition. Cooking the garlic in oil to infuse the flavor is a really cool idea too. I will definitely do this again and I think next time I will make a tasty sandwich with this recipe as a general guideline. — sgrishka 5/22/2012
Slow Cooker Carnitas (Pulled Pork)

Slow Cooker Carnitas (Pulled Pork)

This is a really good recipe. I love crisping the pork in the oven at the end. I added some chipotle powder and a little more oregano and cinnamon before putting it in the oven, and just sliced, squeezed and dropped a whole orange in the slow cooker instead of just the zest. We made some really good tacos with this and some homemade salsa and plenty of cheese. — Firebyrd 4/30/2012
German Apple Pancake

German Apple Pancake

It's really good, but for some reason mine fell apart. I also used different apples and they got mushy. But my failure is probably from not following the directions 100%... I want to try this again and get it perfect, but it did taste very good even with mistakes. — sgrishka 2/4/2012
Perfect Blueberry Pancakes

Perfect Blueberry Pancakes

Loved these pancakes. They cooked up perfectly in my cast iron skillet, nice and fluffy with a little caramelization on the outside. I found that a little blueberry syrup and a little maple syrup mixed together is perfect for these. The only thing is it takes forever to whip the egg whites, use a mixer to save your arms. — sgrishka 9/11/2011
