Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
Ican't stand microwave popcorn. I've used a whirly pop popper for years. It's great! Another variation that I make often is to add about 1/2 cup of sugar to the oil just before adding the corn. Makes a sweet carmel corn-like taste. I then add salt to it after pouring the popped corn into a bowl. I love sweer and salty.

Easy Homestyle Green Beans

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
This is for those who thought the beans tasted like the can. Just add a tsp of brown sugar per can You'll never know that they're not home canned green beans! Also try cooking them with jowl bacon (available at all supermarkets). The old fashioned way of cooking! Don't use the whole piece, it doesn't take a whole lot to flavor the beans.

Bacon Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
This is the way I've always made baked beans but instead of apple, I add 1 can (drained) pineapple tidbits, finely chopped onion, and green pepper. If you like more of a sweet and sour taste try adding a little yellow mustard. About 1/2 teaspoon. You'll especially love the pineapple tidbits.

Nana's Southern Pickled Peaches

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
It's exactly like my mother used to make. She used white cling peaches and they were wonderful. Point of reference, I'm now 74 years old and this is the first time I've seen this recipe.If any of you have access to white cling peaches, I urge you to try this recipe. I'm sending it to my daughter in law. They have a very small (personal orchard) orchard with a couple of peach trees, among the apple trees. I hope she will give this a try. Thanks for warming an "old" gal's heart with this bit of nostalgia!

Genuine Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
This is the way my mother and I made noodles, with the exception of the furham wheat flour. The rolling and cutting instructions are right on. Drying is important. I've always liked my noodles quite thin but never even guesstimated the thickness. These, when dried will freeze very well so you can always have them on hand when you need/want them. Thanks for the post cause "the old ways" are being forgotten along with the art of cooking.

Grandma's Sweet Slaw

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
The key to this recipe is to use Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise. It makes a sweet and sour taste. It's also good to add a little celery seed. My mother used to make a cooked slaw dressing and this recipe (using miracle whip) is very similar to it. I wouldn't like it with mayonnaise. I do think you need to use sugar to YOUR taste. PS I'm 73 years young and like things cooked the "old" way but with modern convenience.

White Chocolate Snack Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is good but M & Ms are overkill. If I make it again I will leave them out! Made a mistake and grabbed salted dry roasted peanuts. Regular would have been better but dry roasted are not terrible and would save calories. Be careful--it's addictive.

World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
This is the old fashioned way my mother made potato salad. I've made some modern adjustments and shortcuts as follows; I make my own dressing by using miracle whip, (mayo won't work) a little vinegar and sugar to taste, Sorry, I don't use measurements, only taste. Stir this till sugar dissolves. Sugar will cause it to thin a little. Adjust to your taste by adding more sugar or vinegar. Do be careful with the vinegar . Use sparingly and add more till you get your desired taste. No cooking involved. I also use a lot of candied dill strips, thinly sliced. Much better than gherkins! Green onions are better than regular onions, too. Hope you will try this method if you like a sweet dressing. If you like a mustard based dressing, this is not for you.

Ting-Town Barbeque Beef Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
This recipe is wonderful. My son has a hickory grilled steak house restaurant and when I tried this recipe (with his restaurant in mind) I was so impressed that I took the finished product to the restaurant for a taste test. He and all the servers and cooks tried it and loved it. They plan to put it on the menu. The time consuming part is measuring all the ingredients for the sauce but it is worth it!! Love this site and love, love, love the recipe conversion program on each recipe that allows me to change the number of servings. Thanks so much!
