Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
We love this and have made it several times. First time I made it I used cream cheese, second time - a combination of cream cheese and sour cream. While the cream cheese is fine, I think the tartness of the sour cream is far better. I do double the meat and quadruple the sauce because it tastes so great on those noodles and leftovers are wonderful.

Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Great recipe. I've only had bread pudding at a restaurant and this is as good, if not better. Definately a keeper.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Fantastic. My new favorite cookie. I did double the recipe. I didn't double the nuts due to the cost, but cut them in 1/2 to 1/4 depending on the size - it still gives you the great macadamia flavor in every bite. I also used white chocolate chips intead of chunks.

Fruit Salad in Seconds

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
I served this at a party recently. I made it mainly for the kids but it was more popular than the more sophisticated dishes. I served it with granola (put the granola in a separate bowl so it doesn't get soggy). I now make a batch every week to keep on hand for breakfasts (it only keeps a few days). I usually use strawberries, blueberrys, melon, mandarin oranges and pineapple. You can use any flavor of yogart but I really like strawberry or vanilla.

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
This is now my very favorite ham recipe. Very, very tender - moist with just a hint of sweetness. Thanks for sharing this!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Loved this! I made a few changes. I used 2lbs of meat (sirloin rather than chuck) and doubled the sauce ingredients. I used one medium yellow onion plus the green onions and used fresh mushrooms (I hate canned). I sauted the mushrooms for a few minutes before adding to the sauce. The addition of white wine really makes this dish. Great flavor, this will be one of my regular recipes.

Instant Pistachio Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Very tasty. I did add some chopped pecans - which gives it a really nice crunch and contrast to the soft marshmallows. Walnuts would work fine as well.

Amish Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Loved it! Great flavor. This just replaced my regular meatloaf recipe. Only minor criticism is that it did crumble quite a bit when you tried to slice it - not sure if I needed to use a more lean or less lean ground beef to help it slice better - or perhaps add an extra egg. But it was so good nobody cared.

No Fail Pie Crust III

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I've used the shortening version of this recipe for years - it's perhaps a little more flaky but this butter version FAR surpasses it in flavor. You can fail with this recipe - in fact the "never fail" ones are the hardest pie crust recipes I've ever worked with. I think they are "never fail" because they never fail to taste great not because they are easy. The secret is to make sure you blend the butter well with the flour, get just the right amount of liquid and chill this dough for at least 30 minutes.

Lemon Lover's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Loved the taste and texture of this recipe. I cooked it in a ceramic bundt pan and did end up cooking it about 20 minutes longer than stated but I think it came out a little too dry -totally my fault. I did not use the glaze but made my own out of lemon juice, powdered sugar and a little butter. Fantastic!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Love it. Great, inexpensive comfort food. This will be a regular meal for us. I doubled the meat and onions so we could have leftovers and quadrupled the gravy - and served with mashed potatos. Even then, the amount of gravy wasn't sufficient for leftovers so the next night I added a can of french onion soup and couple tablespoons more of the sherry and it was still awesome.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Love it. Easy and delicious. I make this regularly now. Butter and toast your french rolls to help keep them from getting soggy. Add a slice of provolone or swiss cheese and melt under the broiler for extra awesomeness!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
This is a great recipe. Moist with just the right amount of sweetness. When I mixed this up I was unsure if I did something wrong - the batter is VERY thick. Amazingly they rise beautifully. I didn't fill the cups all the way full, only 2/3rds -if I had it would have spilled on the oven floor. Due to the cost of fresh, I did use frozen blueberries and they worked just fine.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
These were really good. Super easy to make. Big hit at the office, better than the upscale bakery muffins and far less expensive.

Cheesy Ranch Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
While I love the original Chex Mix recipe - I love this one even more. Add mixed nuts/peanuts, prezels or whatever you want. Absolutely awesome.

French Toast Stars

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
I will definately be making these again. The only change I made was to add more vanilla and that's just a taste preference. One of the best french toast recipes I've ever used.

Teriyaki Flank Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2007
A wonderful marinade and very easy to make. I use it for stir fry and use rice wine. I think the recipe is fine as it is, but if you want a stronger flavor just increase the garlic and ginger root.

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Made this for Easter - people had 2nds and 3rds. Only change I made was to substitute sunflower seeds for the cashews. I doubled the dressing but only used about 3/4ths of it. Awesome!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
Really good. I used granny smith apples like I usually do for pie but I think I would prefer a sweeter baking apple such as a Mcintosh but our grocery store didn't have any. Almost too much tart vs sweet. I did double the topping just because it's so good. My daughter thought 1 1/2 times the topping would have been suffiicient.
