Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
I used this as a good base recipe. I added shredded cheddar cheese, scallions and a bi of mushrooms along with a bit of garlic. My Polish family NEEDS their garlic. LOL It turned out so good. We had it for Easter last year and I'll be making it again for Easter this year as well. Thanks!

Chicken Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
I made this for a family birthday celebration. It was very easy to put together. The flavors were so rich and fantastic. I'll never buy packaged fajita marinade again now that I have this great recipe. Everyone raved about how great the fajitas tasted. Thanks for sharing the recipe Olivia!!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
I decided to make this banana nut bread because it had such great reviews. The only thing good I can say about it is it was very easy to make. That's why it got 3 stars from me. But in saying that I think that's where the problem is. Sometimes you have to put a little more effort into something to make it special. This was not special. First of all I noticed right away that there was no vanilla listed in the ingredients. I don't like to rate anything unless I've followed the recipe to a "T". So I left it out. Big mistake. This bread really didn't have much taste at all. Especially not banana! Disappointed. Also, an entire cup of butter is TOO much! I could have probably used half of that. The bread was very greasy as well. Along with no taste and the grease, I threw the entire thing in the trash. Sorry. I don't understand what all the fuss is about this recipe. I'll stick to my more complicated recipe that has lots of flavor and much less grease.

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Rigatoni

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I've been making this basic recipe for almost 25 years now. My husband really loves it. I don't use the parsley as I don't think it adds very much. We like it spicy so I use hot Italian Sausage. Really gives it a good bite. I also change up the sauce all the time. But the Tomato Basil is the best as it compliments the spicy Italian Sausage the best. For color I use both red and green peppers as well.

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
I made this tarter sauce and thought it was pretty good. But I added a touch of garlic to it and my family really liked it like that. I've also made this but used Miracle Whip Salad Dressing. It gives it more of a tangy taste.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
I've been making this for years. It's so good and creamy and rich! It's the perfect recipe. On a side note, tonight I made a boo boo. I didn't beat the egg yolks. Just dumped them in without thinking. So I'm stirring and stirring and thinking to myself. Why isn't that cheese melting. So finally I scoop the lump out and realize it's a completely cooked egg yolk. LOL

Baked Chicken Breasts Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
I made this for dinner tonight. I buy Amish Chicken so the breasts are very large. I started them out in the oven but I didn't like that they weren't browning. So about 1/2 way through I removed them (all but 2 because I wanted to compare) and finished them off on the stove top. I used a little olive oil. They turned out nice and crunchy and juicy. The 2 I left in the oven never browned and were not as juicy. But they all tasted quite good. I'll add this to my recipe box but remember to pan fry them in a little bit of olive oil instead. I had roasted red potatoes with rosemary, salt and garlic as a side dish. My family finished all of it off!

Bronco Burger

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
These had a pretty good taste. But I thought the steak sauce and the Worcestershire sauce were fighting against each other too much. Next time I'll skip the steak sauce.

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
These burgers have great flavor. I love the cajun mayo too. Yummy! The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of the use of sirloin. Ok if you want a dry burger. Round is much much better for burgers. You want it to have a little more fat to keep it juicy.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
I found this burger recipe on this site many years ago. It was a huge hit with a group of about 25 teenage boys. Of course I had to adjust how many ingredients I used. I followed the recipe. It has fabulous flavor, no doubt about that. But the bacon didn't really cook very well. So what I do instead is cook the bacon first. Then I chop it up and toss it in with the rest of the ingredients. You get the same flavor and there are no toothpicks to have to take out afterwards either.

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
I liked the idea of this. But I did change it a bit. Instead of using spaghetti sauce from a jar, I made my own with meat. I also used both Parmesan and Romano cheeses because that's what my husband likes. Instead of cottage cheese I used ricotta cheese. I didn't see the point of using eggs at all so I skipped them. I liked that it was baked. It really brings out the flavor throughout the entire dish.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I won't rate something unless I follow the original recipe first. Then if need be I will tweek it until I like it. The first time I made these I knew they'd be too dry. There isn't enough moisture in the ingredients to hold it all together. It was tasty though. We ended up eating it with a spoon over yogurt. The second time I made it I used 4 cups quick oats, 1 cup flour, an entire cup of melted butter and 10 ounces of honey. Finding that it was still a bit dry I used 1/2 c of water. I used the same amount of vanilla, brown sugar and baking soda. Then I used 4 ounces of pecans that I processed in the food processor along with about 4 ounces cinnamon and 1 1/2 Cup of raisins. Baked at 18 minutes, took them out, cut them and left them in the pan to cool. I felt I had to chagne this recipe too much from it's original form to give it any more than 2 stars. Sorry, I just hate rating something so low.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
This recipe is so versatile. I used 3 Cups quick oats to 3 1/2 Cs of chopped pecans, dried cherries and one entire large 8 ounce bar Lindt 90% cocao. The 90% cocao kept the sweetness of it down while the cherries added just enough. I baked them for 27 minutes, took them out, cut them into bars and let them cool completely. They were perfect!! For second batch I used 14 ounces of Karo syrup instead of the sweetened condensed milk. Then I added 2 cups raisins, 1 cups finely chopped becans and about 1/4 cinnaman and a tsp. of salt. I baked it the same way, cut them into bars and then let the cool. Again, very awesome. Oh, one more tip. I lined my 9x13 pans with parchment paper first. The bars came out like a dream both times. Thanks for sharing this great recipe. I can't wait to try another combination. I'm thinking peanut butter and chocolate chips with salted peanuts. Mmmmmm

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
This is so easy to make. We love parmesan cheese so I added much more than was called for. Then I put more on top. I also added more jalapeno to it....twice as much!! Just a tad more mayonnaise made it creamier because of the extra ingredients I added. I popped it in the micro when we got to the party and it was gone in about 10 minutes flat. Great recipe!! Thanks Denise!

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
This is a great recipe. I only used 1/4 Cup of sugar as I am diabetic. I also added a bit of sesame oil and some soy sauce as others suggested. I had to omit the peanuts as one of my guests is allergic. We never missed them. Thanks so much for the recipe! I think next time I might make this with the Oriental style Ramen noodles just to see the difference.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
This is the simpliest, most tastiest dessert I've ever made!!! Everyone raved about this at our party today. I've had to copy the recipe for 3 people. I was unable to make it the night before so I did take the advice of others and dunked my graham crackers in milk before lining my pan with them. Worked out perfectly! I do have to say though that just two packages of graham crackers does not make it. I used nearly 3 in my 9x13 pan. I'm so glad I had a whole box of them. Thanks for this recipe! It's definitely a keeper for me.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
I've made this crab dip twice now. It's so creamy and so yummy. Everyone at our party loved it tonight. I did add just a little bit of Jalepeno sauce to it to give it a little bite. Mmmmm! Thanks for the recipe Noelle!!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I've made this recipe in many different versions. This is a fabulous basic recipe to start though. That's why I gave it 5 stars. I always use the Ore Ida O'Brien hash browns. I usually cook those in a pan with a bit of oil and onions. I like to get them crisp first. I don't like soggy potatoes in my casserole. I cut up a couple pieces of ham steak, shred some sharp cheese and a little swiss cheese. I never have used the cottage cheese. My family dislikes it. I mix all of that with 8 eggs and just dump it in the greased 9x13 pan. Sometimes I make it the night before and bake it in the morning. If I do that then I'll bake it about an hour at 350 degrees. If I bake it right away I bake it about 50 minutes. If I happend to have leftovers......not often, I'll cut it up and freeze it in thin strips to use for fast breakfast burritos on the go or a quick sandwich between toasted English Muffins. My family loves the recipe. Especially for special holidays like Christmas and Easter morning. I've also made it for dinner which they all seem to love after a long day at work and school. Thanks for the basic recipe Beth!!

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
This is a great basic recipe. I gave it 5 stars for that alone. I've never thought it was fair when people rate something low and then change the entire recipe. But here's what I did. I used blue cheese dressing and crumbled blue cheese instead of the traditional Ranch dressing. It was fabulous and I've been asked to make this again.

All American Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
This is a yummy, quick and easy apple pie. I liked that I didn't have to roll the crust out. Just pressing it into the bottom of the pan gives it a real rustic feel too. It's also nice if you don't like so much crust. The crumble topping was quite nice for a change. I did add a little cinnamon to the crumble mixture. I used 7 Granny Smith apples (it was heaping). I also added more cinnamon, nutmeg and some cloves to enhance the flavor a little bit. Our 24 year old son was visiting and nearly ate half of that pie. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for making my life just a little bit easier.
