Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I made this last night and was very disappointed that I didn't double the recipe. It was delicious! I made it according to the recipe, except I used heavy whipping cream in place of the milk (needed to get some used up from Christmas). My friends asked me to share the recipe with them. I will make this many more times but with milk since I usually don't stock the fridge with whipping cream. I used reduced salt bouillon granules, then tasted the finished product before adding the salt. It tasted okay, but it was fantastic after I added the salt.

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
I don't think I'd make this as written, but it's a good base recipe. I could only give it 3 stars because I made a lot of changes,which were excellent. I filled a 9x13 pan with layers, baking at 350 for the same amount of time directed. First, I used approx. 2.5 lbs hamburger (that was the size it came in), cooked with a lg chopped onion, 2 pkts taco seasoning, water, salt, pepper, dried diced garlic, and cayenne pepper. To that, I added (still on heat) 2 cans drained corn, 2 cans black beans (not drained), 1 can diced green chiles (not drained), and approx. 1.5 cups each of medium and mild chunky salsas. Since the pan's contents already had created a nice sauce, I added 1 c. plain Greek yogurt (unnecessary)(I wanted to save my sour cream for serving on top). I didn't want to use Miracle Whip, which sounded greasy and gross. I took the opportunity to use up 3 bags worth of tortilla chip crumbs (you know, the little pieces toward the end of the bag that are too little to dip) that I had been saving for an occasion like this. I layered twice as directed (meat mixture, chips, cheese), using about 6 cups of various shredded cheeses (sharp cheddar, taco blend, pizza blend, etc.)(wanted to use up a few opened packages). All of this filled my 9x13 pan. I served it cut into large squares with a large dollop of sour cream and some salsa. My teenage son and my parents raved over it, looking forward to any leftovers. I must say, it was absolutely delicious. I'll make this again!!

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I really enjoyed this, and so did my guests. I made some changes: I did use a handmixer in order to get a pudding-type consistency. I blended 3 boxes French Vanilla Instant Pudding with 4 cups very cold milk, then blended in 16 oz (2 reg. size Cool Whip) Cool Whip. I used an entire box of graham crackers, for a total of three layers. For the icing, I microwaved hot fudge frosting in the can until syrupy and then poured over the top. This is best two or more days after making, so it's great to make ahead of an event in order to leave time for cleaning and preparing other foods closer to the event. It has a very rich flavor and holds its shape well. I might blend 1+ cup of creamy peanut butter to the pudding mixture next time for something different. Delicious!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Awesome! I give this 4/5 stars, however, because I didn't make it according to the recipe. I didn't like the idea of a thick crust, so I used a Jiffy pizza crust mix to make a really thin, crispy crust on a perforated pizza pan. I pre-baked the crust for 5 min. at 425 degrees, then let it sit while I cooked up my chicken breasts. I used 5 boneless skinless chicken strips (equivalent to no more than 2 breasts). Before cooking and while partially frozen in some areas, I cut the chicken up into small slices. I placed these in a bowel and covered in Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce (1/2 bottle?) for the amount of time it took me to make the pizza crust. When the crust was done pre-baking, I cooked the chicken with marinade in a pan until thoroughly cooked through and the sauce had cooked down. I then applied Ken's Chunky Blue Cheese dressing to the crust and swirled it around. On top of that, I generously sprinkled crumbled blue cheese. After that, I put on the chicken, followed by a light drizzle of more wing sauce. If I would have had red onion, I might have added some at this time. For extra cheese, I lightly covered the pizza with mozzarella and cheddar shredded cheeses. I baked this for 15 min at 425 degrees, followed by 3 minutes under the broiler (all in the middle of the oven). We dipped our pizza as we ate it in more blue cheese dressing. This was outstanding!! My son is begging for more. This would make a great addition to a party. Thanks for the idea.

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
I make this with garbanzo beans added using my grandmother's recipe. This looks about the same, however, I use chopped fresh celery instead of the celery seed and chopped green peppers in it, too. (chopped small) This is something my grandma has taken to every family reunion since I can remember.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
I don't know what I did wrong, but I really screwed this cake up. First of all, I baked it in a 9x13 pan. I didn't use a full 1/4 cup butter to grease the pan, but there was a hefty layer of butter with some chunks in it as well. I doubled or added a little extra of the brown sugar. I doubled or added a little extra of the coconut, as well. I placed the pineapple rings and cherries as directed. I used a Duncan Hines pineapple cake mix, put pineapple juice in instead of the water called for, and put one cup of crushed pineapple in the cake batter. I baked this for 45, maybe 50 minutes, and let cool for 20 minutes before inverting. I was so disappointed to find that only the sides were baked. The bottom didn't come out of the pan at all, either. I inverted THAT mess back into the pan and put it back in the oven. My oven was set for 350 degrees, and I have never had a problem with it not baking other items as directed. What a disappointment, especially considering this was meant to be for a Hawaiian party. :( I don't want to try to make it again before the party (to produce a pretty version) in case it won't turn out the second time either. This is probably the first recipe I have made that has completely flopped, and I don't know what went wrong other than the crushed pineapple doing it? (but the sides were baked). I guess this needed 70 minutes to bake in my oven. I tested the cake with a toothpick and it looked clean, but it was raw in there. :(

I was looking for an economical version of Alfredo sauce to prepare for a large reception. I made this to test it, and I am impressed. This is delicious! I will make this often!
