Pumpkin Pie Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Looked good & smelled good but bake time is WAY off! Double the baking time. (Think about it.... this uses a pumpkin pie filling recipe, and most pumpkin pies start out at 425 for about 10 minutes, then you reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 40-45 minutes. Yes, in an oblong pan, these bars aren't as thick. Still... I recommend starting it at 425, reduce to 350 after 5 minutes, and bake for 35 more minutes, and MAYBE your bars will be properly set and cooked through. Also, you really have to press the oat crust very thin to make it cover the pan. I would increase the crust ingredients by one-third to make sure there was enough.

Chops in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
I have made this for years... only I use about 1/4 C milk and add about 1/4 C cooking sherry and some Italian seasoning blend for a bit of extra flavor. The chops are always tender & moist... it can't be any easier! Works just as well in a slow cooker.

Green Onion Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
I found the chopped jalapeno pepper overpowered this dish just a little too much, so I tempered it by adding some diced cucumber, some chopped green olives, about 1/3 green bell pepper chopped, and just a little finely chopped carrot. I also had no fresh cilantro so left that out - I think it would have added a nice flavor and plan to get some before I make this again. The green onion flavor also came through and tasted great. I would make this again with a very small jalapeno, very finely chopped - plus the cilantro, of course. The extra veggies add to it, they do not detract.

Cold Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
You'll like it even better if you add: - 1 tablespoon of sugar to the Italian dressing, and - 1 can of sliced water chestnuts. The additions turn it into a 5-star recipe, in my opinion. I also make it with a can each of green and wax beans for a little more interest. Yummy!

German Baby

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I made this for the first time this morning. We're trying to "lighten up" our meals so I cut the butter to 1 tablespoon, used 2 whole eggs + one egg white, and added low-fat lactose-free milk. I also added just a pinch of salt and a splash (maybe 1/4 teaspoon) of vanilla. I heated the oven to 425 but reduced the heat to 400 after 5 minutes of baking. Baked for 20 minutes and it was picture perfect and delicious! I served ours with freshly stewed apples - YUM! Thanks - we'll definitely have this one again!
