Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
These were the best oatmeal cookies I have ever made. I did not add raisins, coconut or chips and they were still perfect. My only suggestion would be if you do not use coconut, add another 1/2 cup oatmeal. I did that the second time I made them and they were even better. I also added 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon as I do with all my cookies.

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Hubby and I are both rice pilaf lovers and this recipe is exactly what we were looking for. I have made it many times and not changed a thing. We recently decided we wanted to cut down on our carb intake so I made it last night with brown rice and broken whole grain angel hair. The in result was just as tasty. Needless to say I had to make some adjustments because of the brown rice. I added about 1/2 cut more broth and cooked for 50 minutes.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
GREAT recipe! I followed the recipe as is and they were DELICIOUS. As others previously stated, no way do they serve 8. 3-4 servings is all you get. One thing I did that was helpful was mix everything in my 4-cup measuring cup. This made it easy to simply pour the batter into the pan.

Mom's Red Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Outstanding! The BEST scalloped potatoes I have ever made. During the last 30 minutes I put some pork chops on top of the potatoes. I turned them after 15 minutes at which time I also laid some broccoli spears on top of them. It was a delicious meal with super easy cleanup.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Best pie crust recipe I have ever made. Even my picky husband comments on it every time. One small word of caution. For Thanksgiving I decided to get a jump on things and make my pie crusts early. I made 3 of these, refrigerated them overnight and rolled them out for my pies the next day. I would not recommend doing this with this particular recipe. Every crust was extremely hard and hard to cut. I have used this recipe numerous time before and never had that problem. They have always been very flakey and buttery. Only chill for the recommended time.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Excellent! I made very few changes. I used 2 can cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken soup, added fresh mushrooms and a splash of red wine. Also, for those complaining about the salt, don't use Lipton Onion Soup Mix (for this or any other recipe). It is way too salty. Campbells or the store brand onion soups are much less salty and just as good.

Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Delicious and so easy! I followed the advice of others and sauted the veggies first, and added about 1/4 a cup of red wine. I also used regular can tomatoes rather than stewed. Will make again.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
FINALLY an apple crisp recipe that didn't flop! Normally I can cook anything but have never had an apple crisp that came out right until NOW. The only change I made was adding more cinnamon and using 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. Will make again and again.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Great recipe! I had a similar recipe and lost it so was thrilled to come across this one. I followed the recipe but used whole wheat flour and added 3/4 cup of walnuts. I also baked them in 3-1 lb. coffee cans. I do this with all my holiday breads as they wrap up nicely for gifts.

Pineapple Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
I have made this same cheese ball for years and always get rave reviews. It is also very adaptable. I left out the celery a few times and the peppers a few time when serving to those that don't care for them. It was still just as good. The 1/2-1 tsp. of salt is definitely a must. Make the day before if possible.

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2008
I just made a batch of these cookies and oh my, they are just about the best pb cookies I have ever made. I used whole wheat flour and added 1/4 cup wheat germ to make them a bit more healthy. Since wheat flour is a bit heavier I added a whole cup of pb. I will defintely be making these again very soon.

South Shore Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
This was the best pork roast I ever made. I did not have sour cream on hand so just used whole milk. The gravy was so good my family couldn't get enough of it.

Corned Beef Hash Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
This was FANTASTIC and just what I was looking for. I actually did not want cakes, but wanted corned beef hash. My husband loves the canned hash for breakfast with his eggs. Too me it smells worse than can dog food. I gave this a whirl this morning with my left over corned beef. He went to work a happy man.

Roast Beef and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
Excellent roast beef recipe and SO easy. The only thing I did differently was quickly browned my chuck roast on all sides in a little olive oil before placing in crockpot. Since we are mushrooms lovers, I sautéed some fresh mushrooms in the same pan and added them as well.

Chocolate-Dipped Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
This was so delicious I made it three times over the Holidays. Everyone loved it. Followed the recipe ingredients exactly, however, changed a couple of procedures the second time. There is no need to break up the white chocolate and dip into the dark. Simply spread the melted dark chocolate over the white. As long as you add the shorthening, the dark will stay in place when you break up the bark. I also switched from hard peppermint candies to the soft. It will not stick to your teeth the way the hard does. The candy literally melts in your mouth. Ohhh so good. Thanks for a real keeper.

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
I have been searching for a breakfast casserole recipe and stumbled upon the best with this one. After reading the reviews, I added 2 more eggs and 1/2 cup more milk. I also added sliced jalapenos to give it a kick. It was wonderful and a big hit with my Memorial Day company.

Frijoles a la Charra

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
Being from Texas let me just say these beans are the real deal! I am sure the recipe is fine exactly as written. However, I made some changes only because I had to work with what I had on hand. I used a ham hock in place of the bacon, added a can of diced tomatoes instead of whole, used chicken broth instead of water and used 2 jalapenos, chopped in place of the can. My husband said they were the best beans he has ever eaten.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This recipe was wonderful; the best zucchini recipe I have ever tried. We are trying to eat more healthy so I used whole wheat flour instead of white flour. I thinkthe 3 tsp. of cinnamon is what makes this one tops. Definitely a keeper.

Zesty Succotash

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I came here searching for a Succotash recipe that did not have lima beans, as my picky hubby refuses to eat them. I grabbed this recipe and it was WONDERFUL! In fact, too good to enjoy just on Holidays. I will be serving this year around, adding some rice and other things as suggested.

Great recipe, definitely a keeper. I didn't have any fresh tomatoes so I used salsa. It turned out wonderful.
