Yellow Squash Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
This dish was excellent! My mom, fiance, and kids who hate squash loved this. I followed the recipe aside from using zuccini and squash together. I didnt have corn meal so I used bread crumbs instead. Everyone raved! Of course I didnt tell them until they ate it what they were. Just called them fried cakes. I am going to try to bake them today. Thanks for the recipe!

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
My family loves this recipe. Being different from the norm when it comes to Mexican food night in our house made this fun. Depending how many we have to feed I sometimes use 10 or 12 inch tortillas and add extra ingredients. I've changed the ingredients around some too,I use refried beans instead of mashing pintos to save time. I add spices, such as taco seasoning and cumin and garlic to both the black bean and refried bean mix. Also chop up an avacodo and add to one of the mixes. I have added a layer of beef or chicken before, but really cant tell its there. My man suggested using tortilla chips or doritos in place of the soft shells for some texture. (I'm not sure they would still be crunchy at the end though). And I always use reduced or ff ingredients if available. Still tastes great.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
This recipe is excellent as is. I made it many times last winter. I alter it every time I make it to my families taste. Sometimes add veggies. Always add fresh garlic. Its good with chunks of potato in it too! I eliminate the butter. I tear my biscuits into small pieces and just flatten them quickly in my fingers while dropping them in. I have mixed the biscuit pieces down in and also left them on top. Let them cook 30 minutes, and have left them cook longer. We love this ANY way i've made it! I also always use a slow cooker liner for easy clean up after this heavy meal!! Will definately be making this for years. Thanks for the great no hassle recipe!

Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
This was excellent. I served it for my 4th of July party and everyone loved it. I love all the fresh ingredients! I also just add enough italian dressing to coat. I have added corn, it's good either way. I use multi colored peppers. I am a BIG fan of chips and salsa, and I haven't bought salsa again after I discovered this! I often whip this up to take to work or serve along side supper, its a good way to get your veggies. I have made it with just black eyed peas,tomato,sweet onion,jalapeno, and dressing, cause thats all I had and I was craving this! It tasted great like that too. Great recipe!!

Campfire Reubens

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
I have never liked the rye bread that local eateries use for reubens. The pumpernickel is why I tried this. I bought deli corned and roast beef, turkey and ham(kids are picky). Also used swiss, american, and pepperjack cheeses. I laid everything out on table and let each assemble their own to their liking. I made mine as stated in the recipe. Except we all used ff thousand island. This was excellent!! My fiance had never tried a reuben and fell in love with this. He tried one later at a local eatery and HATED it!! I swear its the rye... yuck. Anyway, we have made these on the grill, campfire, and in the oven. I dont check the time really, just check the food. The thicker ones were still cold in the middle when the kids sandwiches were done. We will definately keep making this one!!

Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
This is pretty good, way better and healthier than store bought stuff. I sometimes add ground flax and wheat germ if I have it on hand. Not sure how much, I just eyeball it. I have made different varieties by using dried blueberries, cranberries, apricots, etc. Just omit the apple(or keep it for a neat flavor). We also omit the apple and add fresh fruit (bananas, peaches, blueberries)to our bowls before we microwave it with a little bit of water. Great idea for adding health without adding the extras sodium and preservatives.

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
I give this a 5 just for the ease of it. You should have no problem seasoning this dish to your families taste. If you look at the ingredients as written, you should be able to tell if you would want more spices in it. Some people dont over season their food, if they season at all.. I'm sure the soup mix would be sufficient for flavor to someone who just throws the chops (or whatever you're cooking) in the oven and bake them plain, as I have seen many do. My mother included. Anyway, I just put the chops (without browning) or potatoes, which ever I have ready first in the pan followed by the other. Whip up the soup mix, adding garlic, pepper, or whatever I feel like putting in that night. Pour it over the chops and potatoes and bake. Simple, quick and delicious. The whole family loved it. Thank You!!

Mozzarella Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
These were pretty good. I used colby cheese. Sprinkled them with oregano and garlic on the outside, then spread about 1 tsp. of sauce on the tops. I baked them too long though, my cheese oozed out. Still delicious. We ate these with lil smokies wrapped in 1/2 a biscuit. The kids want me to make again.

Individual Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
We made these for Sunday morning brunch. They were a hit. I seasoned the eggs like I would making scrambled or omelot with garlic and onion powder and pepper. They are great with whatever you throw in them. I also use turkey bacon instead. Served over a split english muffin as suggested. Delish!

Oven-Baked Country Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I thought these were excellent. I used Panko crumbs instead of regular bread crumbs for an even crispier texture. Also added garlic powder, and adjusted the other spices to my families preference. A great change from regular potato wedges. I am going to try this breading on chicken and fish. I was snacking on the cold wedges out of the fridge the next day.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
We like this recipe. I have used the left overs next day in shepherds pie, casseroles, and to thicken stews. Great recipe!

Peppery Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This is the first time I have used mushroom soup in scalloped potatoes. It was better than I expected. Gave it a very creamy texture. I have made these several times now. I add garlic and onion. Sometimes diced ham to make it a whole meal.

Last Minute Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
This recipe gets 5 stars for taste and ease. Great recipe!! I didnt have marjoram, and I added whole fresh mushrooms. Everyone went back for seconds. This will go into rotation at my house! I made homemade drop biscuits, and we tore them up and put them in the mix. This is a versatile recipe that can take whatever veggies and spices your family prefers.

Oven-Fried Catfish

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Overall, good recipe. Nothing spectacular. I didnt have celery salt, so I think that left the flavor a little bland. I made these with catfish and white bass. Both were good. I both baked and fried some. The baked ones had more flavor. The fried ones lost it in the grease I imagine. I ran low on breading (a lot of fish) so added some flour and more spices. It was good both ways. Very nice crunch from the oven. Much healthier way to get your fish. I will experiment with breading though. I like it crunchy, but dont like the gritty cornmeal.

Onion Dijon Crusted Catfish

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I had higher hopes based on the reviews. I'm not sure what it was but the mustard/onion/fish combination did not sit well with me. The mustard sauce is excellent...just not on my fish. Every one tried it, my old man said he liked it, but didnt eat much of it. No one else liked it. I'm going to try the mustard/onion on some pork sandwiches! Two stars for the sauce.

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I cannot get these biscuits light and fluffy! I've tried over and over. I've used ff ingredients, whole fat ingredients, recommended substitutions. Not over mixing, blah, blah, blah..lol. Nothing works for me. They come out rather "flat", and dense. Still taste ok though. They have gone well with my meals. And I love them with honey dripping off as a midnight snack! I'll keep trying.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
These are hands down the BEST cookies I have ever made!! Thanks for the recipe. I had to make three batches in one week because I couldnt keep my family out of them. I caught them in the "cookie jar" in the middle of the night, at breakfast, when I come in from outside, basically anytime they thought I couldnt see!!! Now thats a GOOD cookie! I sent them to school, and the teachers raved. Some of the 2nd graders wouldnt touch them though. I bet the staff didnt care since they got the leftovers. I also made these as gifts last Christmas, substituting the chocolate chips with Caramel chips, Peanut Butter chips and Mint chips. Thanks for the absolutely fabulous recipe!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I thought this tasted very good. Not exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a replacement for the whipped type frosting that the deli makes. After reading a review that stated it was like Walmarts I thought I had found it. But alas I'll keep looking. This would be a great topping for angelfood cake. I used it on my sons birthday cake. The frosting held up well, but the icing writing I used spread out into huge blobs in the frosting. I'll use it again, just not on birthday cake that requires decoration.

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
These were a lot better than I had hoped. I used 2 percent milk and quick oats. We tried the first batch and made many more batches to freeze as a quick breakfast or snack. I added ground flax to all, some of the batches i added frozen blueberries (thawed), chopped apple, dried cranberries, cinnimon, and walnuts. We also added mini chocolate chips to some per the kids request. Excellent recipe. They are soo good and good for you to!

Mom's Legendary Stuffed Hamburgers

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
I guess I was expecting more. They weren't bad, just not anything exceptional. I can put onions and bacon on top of my burger with A LOT less work. I didn't like the flavor of the onion soup mix in this at all. And I use onion soup mix in other recipes. Everyone agreed these were just ok. I made 5 huge balls of burger, then seperated in halves, it occured to me that I could have left them whole and stuck in my thumb and hollow out a "pocket" to fill then seal, with less effort. Just an idea.
