Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
This was well enjoyed by the tuna eaters. Made serving for 9 with 16oz bag pasta and 12x15 pan. Will put top cheese on at the end of baking next time -- too brown.

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2009
I took this to my sister's birthday potluck and came home with an empty clean pan. All over the leftovers were taken home by the guests. After reading the reviews, I was worried about it overfilling my 9x13 pan, so I decided to double the crust (1 bag) and keep the cream cheese and jello the same. I ground pretzel rods in the Cuisinart, next time I will try gravel-sized crumbs. I mixed half the sugar with the pretzels, and sprinkled the rest on top. I used a 10X15? pan that fit well. I added 1 tsp vanilla to the CC mix. For the jello, I drained the strawberry juice and then added enough water to make 2C; I sliced the strawberries and added pineapple tidbits because the amount of fruit looked wimpy.

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
Used 6 thawed haddock filets (1/3 Costco bag), whipping cream, and fresh parmesan over top, before it went in the oven. Only took 8-9 minutes. Served with Kraft Mac&Cheese and ceasar salad. This was really good for the adults, the anti-fish kids split a piece. Like fish sticks! SO EASY and took no time. Next time, will use Panko and baking rack on baking sheet.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
Wasn't so sure about this as I was making it, but it turned out very good! Some butter browned before the rest was totally melted in the pan , and the batter seemed very thin going in the oven... but good end result. It was done before the time was up. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13. It had a nice crispy/golden brown crust on top.

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
These were really good! They might have a little too much topping (there were some clumps left in the bottom), but no biggie! Everyone was snacking on them as they were waiting for dinner to finish.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
We're with everyone else on the 5 stars! We served this for Sunday dinner with Green Beans with Breadcrumbs and rice pilaf, and it was a hit with everyone but our two kids (not fish eaters). It took a little longer than 6 minutes in the broiler, but otherwise fast, easy, and delicious! Thanks for the recipe and change of pace.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
I thought this was very good considering how easy & quick it was. I used the Cuisinart to slice the apples and they were a perfect slice size. I coldn't find our nutmeg. Wish there'd been more liquid for the sauce. 72M, 62F (particularly the calorie count), 28F and 21M enjoyed it alot, but I found out that unfortunately, my 31M, 13F, and 10F do not like baked apples. What's not to like??? Geez! Anyways, they all just ate the pork chop, which by itself is very plain. I'll still make it again; they can suffer once a month! :) Thanks.

Loosemeat Sandwiches III

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
This got mixed reviews: 72M, 62F, and 10F didn't finish theirs; 31M, 28F, and very kind 13F ate two. Made double the amount for guests that didn't show up and it took much longer than expected, and there's lots left over. Tomorrow we will have a burrito bar available! I was asked odd questions while this was cooking ('How does it hold together?') and they seemed unimpressed. Apparently, we don't have big mustard and pickle fans.

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
We don't care for raw onion, so I left that out. I thought the tuna could have been a little more flavorful. 72M, 62F, and 31M thought they were "real good," 28F & 13F thought they were OK+, 10F didn't like at all. Overall, pretty good and fast!

Weekend Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
We had this for Mother's Day brunch, and again tonight for dinner (with Karyn's Cream of Crab soup.) Everyone enjoyed! Thanks!

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
All of our seafood eaters loved this! Little embarassed (as Marylanders) that we only added 1 tbsp of Old Bay, but we family members withe heartburn issues, so letting everyone add their own spiciness was a good idea. Becks restuarant in Sykesville is our gold standard, but no one here was thinking about it as we were enjoying this! Really good! Thank you!

Herb, Garlic and Bacon Pork Loin

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
This was very easy and very good. The bacon was sort of soggy. I was in a hurry; next time I will broil it a little bit before serving. Everyone enjoyed. Our mom wanted to put the recipe in the kitchen drawer.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
This is the best homemade strawberry topping I have found thus far. I really enjoy it on ice cream and waffles, but it is almost a little too sweet and has a slightly odd taste to it. Haven't figured out what that's about. It is not as good as the topping you get at upscale ice cream places, but is an excellent home substitute for something you never see (done well) in the grocery store.

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
This soup is awesome. I follow the directions and it totally works. I cut the bacon into sort of large pieces (because it sort of disintegrates as you keep it warm on the stove all evening.) Everyone I have served this soup to has wanted the recipe.

Drip Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
We found drip beef 3 years ago, and have been making it ever since. I follow the directions as listed. The coffee filter is a neat idea. The house smells wonderful all afternoon while it's cooking (possibly better than the actual taste.) I love this recipe.
