Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Very good! I added finely chopped carrots(2) for color and added flavor. As usual I started with too small of a pot and had to go to the dutch oven! I have yet to make a soup that I haven't changed pots! This was great even though my hubby was a couple of hours late coming home from a business trip. I just turned off the heat and left the pot on the warm burner with the top on. He loved it! Great with this 20 degree weather!Thanks for the recipe!

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I have been doing this for years as I learned it in a restaurant I worked at. I line my baking sheet with foil. I didn't see any one mention this tip: Lay a sheet of foil over the top loosely to prevent spattering all over your oven! Remove top foil about 5 minutes before its finished baking for final crisping(I pour off the excess grease at this point,too.)

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
Hubby says this one is a keeper! I used cream of celery, 1 can mushrooms, small can of green chilies, garlic salt, parsley flakes, and added grated monterey jack to the sauce. I covered it but I think it you would just end up with sauce as last layer, it would dry out a little more. I put cheddar cheese on last 15 minutes, let it rest for 15 minutes out of the oven to set up. Easy and adapts well to what I had on hand!

Simply Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This was super easy and pretty quick to assemble!Tasted great and after letting it set for awhile before serving, stays stacked and pretty. I made 2 8X8 casserole dishes of this, baked one immediately, then froze the other.For the freezer: let sauce be last layer,lay plastic wrap directly on sauce to make sure no air can get to it.If you freeze in glass dish, bring to room temperature before you bake or start it at 250 for 1/2 hour, then raise temp to 350 for 40 min or so.Put last layer of cheese on in the last 15 minutes. This is great to keep in freezer for the days you just don't feel like cooking!

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
Easy to make and hubby loved it! I used Mexican style diced tomatoes with green chiles instead of tomato sauce (whirled it in food processor first) but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Great garlic spicy flavor!

Savory Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
Very easy, made with ingredients in anyone's pantry! Hubby loved them! Made exactly as recipe stated, very tasty with a slight smoky flavor.One packet came out crispy, the other one didn't, but either way, tasted great! I used heavy duty foil and made sure seams were folded over several times and the packet puffs up like the old stovetop jiffy pop! Warning! Be careful when opening, hot steam comes rushing out! Also, if you do have a leak, hot butter can burn you, when moving it off grill. This was a fun idea, especially great for a campfire and easily done ahead of time. Tip: Scrub potatoes with a new scotch-brite type scrubby and even that job takes just seconds and potatoes come out much cleaner!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I put the chicken breasts in crockpot frozen, turn on high until it was up to temperature then set temperature to low for 4 hours. I flatten the buttermilkd bicuits and cut into small strips, did not stir but did ladle some of the hot broth on top. At the last minute, I removed the crock from heating unit and place under broiler set at 425 degrees for 10 minutes to brown dumplings. This is a very easy, no fuss dish! Hubby said it was pretty good, definitely better than canned (gee,thanks,Hon!) I would make it again but next time I would cook dumplings longer, I only cooked them about 45 minutes on high in crockpot, they were still a little doughy on the side that wasn't browned, my fault though.

Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Exellent flavor! I tried 3 different cheeses, blue fcheese in some, cheddar in some and asaigo in most, and then wrapped in half slice of bacon. Make sure you put on a boiler pan so grease can drain. Also, if at 20 min. the bacon is not done enough for your taste, do not just let it bake longer...the cheeses will run out! Instead, broil for the last 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon.WEAR GLOVES & melon baller does an easy job of taken the seeds and veins out. As you are de-seeding them, put the clean ones in a bowel of cold water in the sink. Run clear cold water thru them or rinse and change water. Soak them while you are preparing other ingredients.Take gloves off and discard as soon as you are finished handling the peppers or you could get the hot pepper juice on your cabinet pulls, frig door, pot handle,etc! After assembly, place the whole pan of peppers in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to get the cheeses really cold so they don't ooze out! UPDATE: To make them faster, after you have the peppers cleaned and soaking in cold water...make little "cigars" of the filling approx. the size of your peppers. Then just place inside the pepper, mash in a bit, stick in freezer to chill. It made filling them go so quick that way...

Fried Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
Boy these are good! Cheap snack... Only thing I did different is that I cut onions (1/2 in.cut thick, they shrink), soaked in coldwater while I was doing everything else. Dusted in flour or bisquik, in a ziplock...then into the batter! Batter should foam abit before you use, beer and flour combo makes bubbles! Absolutely picture perfect onion rings! I would have taken a pic but...I ate them! Freezing about a dozen to see if they will work frozen....

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
MADE IT AGAIN...This time using Flounder...used up the ends of Green goddess and some Ranch dressing....again...5 star recipe! I love the fact that I used up the ends of bottles and the bottom of the chip bag...things you would normally just discard!So quick to make too! UPDATE! Used whiting this time, a stronger fish and had to sub Mozzarella and Mexican Parm, exellant crust on top!Mixed the cheese and chips in a ziploc, added parsley for prettiness!PREVIOUSLY: SSoooooo easy! I used Tilapia, and used mostly sharp cheddar but added a couple of tablespoons of blue cheese and pepper jack trying to use up some bits and pieces of leftover cheeses. I piled the topping on (i mayt have made extra topping since I just eyeballed it. Good way to use up the bottom of the chip bag! The timing and temperature were perfect....the only tip I would add is: Spray or grease the pan really, really well! The cheese that melted off the edges of the fish wanted to stick and you don't want to fight with it to get it off the pan...use foil lining,too.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Absolutely the best! Easy, too. Made exactly as the recipe stated, but only used 1/2 the choc chips(only 1 cup),the cookie is so good and I don't like so many choc chips! I know 1/4 cup to make each cookie seems like a lot but that is what makes them look store-bought! Will make again and again!

Belles Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
My current favorite! Made this with a 2 lb breadmaker on the dough cycle....this is alot of flour, so do not use a smaller breadmaker. I did add 1 tspof vital wheat gluten per cup of flour(5 tspplus the flour)to finish up the last 1/2 cup of flour. I microwaved the first ingredients to 110 degrees, its just easier. Other than that, I did not change a thing. You have to try this!

Gale's Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
SO EASY! Followed the recipe exactly! Just used a regular lite beer and put a heaping tablespoon of jarred garlic and they came out perfect. Squeeze a little lemon on before serving if you like lemon! I did skewer the shrimp and put directly on the grill, which I think gives a little more smoky flavor but you need to stand there and watch them They don't take long to cook!

Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Quick and Easy! Put these on a salad with sliced cajun chix breast and cheese. Hubby absolutely loved this salad! He even asked for more croutons on his salad! I followed recipe to a T but did sprinkle some sesame seeds on the croutons for the last 5 minutes! Timing is perfect on these...did them in the toaster oven!

Easy Cheesy Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
HOLY COW! These are delicious! My new favorite grilling recipe! I basically made this recipe as stated but inadvertantly some slight things made it better! I had some seasoned onions from precooking my chicken for the grill, used them.(Chipotle pepper and garlic flavored)I also used bacon grease to lube the foil instead of spray and I think that added flavor too! Try this, really easy and NO CLEAN-UP!
