Tuna Fish Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Great recipe. I doubled it for a total of eight servings and added an extra can of tuna because "as is", the mixture seemed to be predominantly celery and onion and I like there to be a bit more tuna than "extras." I used green onion, Italian parsley, and only 3 tablespoons or so mayonnaise. Also, I put in 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder instead of 1/2 teaspoon. Tastes great--fresh parsley is a must.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
I used a 2.5 lb. chuck roast seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I substituted approximately 1 T. onion powder for the onion soup mix, and doubled the liquid using half water and half beef broth. I also added whole garlic cloves and half an onion cut in large pieces and placed around the roast. Good recipe.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
I took this to an office party and it got rave reviews. I left out the lettuce and bell pepper, and used a Mexican cheese blend instead of just Cheddar. So easy and so good!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Delicious comfort food! They taste just like the ones my MawMaw makes. Instead of the boxed biscuit mix, I used the biscuit mix from the Never Fail Biscuits recipe from this site (minus the butter and milk, of course :). I also had to add two eggs to get the balls to hold together (and yes, I used raw sausage that had set out for a bit and I mixed it with the other ingredients very well). There was NO way that I could form them otherwise!! I baked the sausage balls on a cooling rack that was set up on a baking sheet; I can’t imagine doing it another way as there was quite a bit of grease that had dripped down from the sausage onto the baking sheet. Definitely grease the cooling rack well or the sausage balls will stick. I will definitely make this again!!

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Really simple and good! Dont' put the baked chips in a closed Ziploc bag; I did and the moisture from the oil on the kale chips caused all the chips to become soft again. Yummy!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
In place of the tomato juice I substituted one 28 oz. can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano; 1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery and onions; and about 1/2 of a 14.5 oz. can of fire roasted diced tomatoes with garlic. I added approximately 1/2 c. diced celery, two or three green onions, three jalapeno slices, and some minced garlic. I also used brown sugar instead of white and doubled the oregano, pepper, cumin, and cayenne. This chili was great. The only thing I might do differently next time would be to add another round of seasonings a few minutes before the chili’s finished cooking—just to add a little extra flavor. Fabulous with sour cream and shredded cheese—most definitely a keeper.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
My dog and another dog I was babysitting gave this recipe two paws up. I used whole wheat flour instead of spelt, but left everything the same otherwise. One thing I really like about this recipe is that it doesn’t contain milk or cheese which can be difficult for dogs to digest.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
This is a great-tasting and easy-to-make pizza sauce. It’s fairly basic and can certainly be added to, but it’s wonderful as-is. I generally add powdered or fresh minced garlic, onion powder, and additional Italian seasonings.

Cod Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
I used pollock instead of cod, but the cakes still tasted great. Fish sandwiches with tartar sauce were made out of the leftovers and these were great too!

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I used all butter and the full four cups of confectioners' sugar. The icing turned out great!

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I used this recipe in place of the boxed cake mix in the Rainbow Clown Cake recipe from this site. I made cupcakes and they came out moist and delicious. I think that two of the keys to this recipe are beating the eggs until frothy and sifting the ingredients the proper amount of times. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chicken and Herbs

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I used boneless skinless chicken seasoned with garlic, salt, and pepper, and browned in a pan. I placed the chicken in a baking dish, poured a little olive oil over it, and rubbed the dry ingredients into the chicken. I also added some cut up potatoes around the chicken, poured olive oil over the potatoes, and sprinkled the remaining dry seasoning over them. This was a quick and delicious meal---good for a busy work night or suitable when having company over.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
Like others have commented, the fish itself is ok, but it’s the dill sauce that really makes the recipe. For the sauce, I used light mayo, light sour cream, and dried dill. Nice, easy dinner for a weeknight.

Brown Sugar Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
These were really good — similar to a less sweet version of a cinnamon roll. I made these as stated with the exception of using butter in place of butter-flavored shortening (I never use shortening!). Make sure to roll the long side of the dough up and not the short side :). When I rolled mine out and cut into 12 slices, they looked pretty small, but don’t worry, they will rise! Delicious and easy!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I doubled the recipe and used two entire seasoning packets, two cans cream of mushroom soup and one can cream of chicken soup (should have used one less can of soup, though). Since my last crock pot recipe came out extremely dry, I was afraid to start the chicken off with so little liquid, so I put two cans of the soup and ¾ c. vermouth (no white wine on hand) in at the beginning. I’ll use less liquid next time since I ended up having to thicken the final product. 30 minutes before this was done, I added some sautéed mushrooms, garlic, and onion, and did some additional seasoning with oregano, basil, garlic powder, rosemary, paprika, and pepper. Served over egg noodles—yum!

Cranberry Pork Chops II

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This is one of my fiancé’s new favorite recipes. He’s not a picky eater by any means (thank goodness!), but few recipes make it onto his “favorites” list. This is one of them though! For six chops, I used frozen cranberries; approximately 1/2 c. sugar; 1/2 t. pepper; added dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves; and added close to 1/3 of a diced yellow onion. I highly recommend adding the spices; they really help complete the dish. Also, to turn the juices into more of a sauce, I added cornstarch near the end of cooking. Easy and elegant dish!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I was looking for a good crust recipe to make my first-ever pie a success (I used this with the Apple Pie by Grandma Ople recipe from this site). This recipe did the trick. I used butter instead of shortening and egg whites instead of the white and yolk (I buy eggs that are in the milk carton-like container and my whole eggs were unfortunately expired, forcing me to use my egg whites). This recipe is supposed to make four crusts, but I have no idea how that could be. I had enough dough for two approximately 9” pie crusts, but I don’t know how that could be stretched to four! Great recipe though!

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
I've never made homemade dressing before, but this turned out great! I used my food processor to mix all the ingredients, but I wasn't able to get the onion quite as finely chopped as I'd like (my food processor has limited attachments). Maybe a blender would be better.
