Country Green Beans

There are great! Fresh green beans were not in season so I used Green Giant Select frozen whole green beans & it was spectacular!

I'm not a fan of peas but my family is so I try ways to "dress them up" and this recipe is a keeper!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
We love sweet potatoes and this recipe is probably a family favorite. I leave the nuts out b/c nobody in my family likes them but this is a great recipe!

Dad's Asian Slaw

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Great recipe! I love this stuff and had been looking for a recipe for a long time. It turned out a little sweeter than I remember but next time I'll just add a little less sugar. Awesome! UPDATE: I think I must have just gotten a big 1/2 cup the first time b/c I just made this yesterday doubling the recipe & it was perfect! I used a full cup of sugar & the entire bottle of dressing. There is one little bitty bowl left, it was wonderful! I guess I just got carried away with the sugar the first time! ;)

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Wonderful! My family loves sour cream so I used that instead of mayo but will make it next time with the mayo to see the difference. I liked that it had corn in it so my kids would get a veggie but I only had a 15 oz can of corn (instead of 10 oz) and I used the whole thing. Too much corn. Less would be better. As another suggested, this would be good to wrap in tortillas or I think just as a dip! Yummy! Thanks so much!

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
This was OUTSTANDING!!! Very rich, good with a tall glass of milk! This is the first "real" cheesecake I have ever made & I was very worried about the turnout with all the reviews. I made this for my mother-in-laws surprise party & it was a huge hit! I followed Kathy's suggestions b/c I couldn't find a 9 or 10oz brownie pkg so I used one I had on hand, 22oz I think. I used a 10in springform, made my brownie according to pkg directions, baked about 15 minutes (next time I will do a little less). I used 3 pkgs of cream cheese, 3/4 cups sugar and 3 eggs. I didn't put any nuts around the edge or anything like that & the caramel didn't leak out. I was just careful to keep it away from the edge. I baked the cheesecake for 40ish minutes & it was perfect. The very bottom edge of the brownies got hard but I think reducing my initial cook time will fix that. I will definitely be making this again...and again...and again! :) Thanks for the recipe! I've been hanging on to it for nearly a year. I'm glad I finally got the courage up to give it a try!

Sunday Best Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I made this for my son's 4th birthday party & it was a huge hit!!! Everyone loved it! I used 2 cans of peach pie filling, 3 cans of pineapple chunks, 6 apples, 6 bananas, strawberries, 1 lg. can of mandarin oranges and green & purple grapes. I topped with kiwi & strawberries according to recipe. It was beautiful AND delicious!!!! Thank you! The pineapple juice does an EXCELLENT job of keeping the apples & bananas from turning brown!

Parmesan Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I'm not sure if this is an honest 5...I normally make recipes as the recipe states to give an accurate review but this time I made some changes. I sliced the potatoes about 1/4 in. thick, melted the butter in my 9x13, added the parmesan cheese & per other reviews, added some garlic powder & a little garlic salt. I tossed my potatoes in & stirred them up really good to coat them and tossed them about every 10 minutes or so to ensure they were all getting covered with the butter concoction and didn't dry out (my family doesn't care for them crispy). I was running short on time so I covered them for the last 15 minutes. I will be trying the "original" recipe when it is just my husband & I....these just seemed to work better for my kids. Great recipe! Thanks so much!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
This is a great base for a meatloaf. You can add different spices to suit your family. I made it as stated except our beef comes in pound & 1/2 so I used more meat. Next time I will add onions and some other spices but the texture/consistency was PERFECT! It had a great flavor, exactly what I have been looking for! I made it in mini loaves & cooked the same temp & length. The sauce was a bit sweet for mine & my husbands taste but my kids gobbled it up. I will definitely be making this again! I plan to make a batch to freeze for a quick lunch or even supper. Thanks!!!

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I used some of the bacon grease instead of vegetable oil for flavor but used less than what it called for. I brushed the insides first & baked them then turned them upside down & brushed the other side & baked again so the grease could run out & they wouldn't be greasy. That worked really well. I don't know if I skipped a step or if it isn't included but I felt the potato skins could have used a dash of salt before adding the toppings. Or add more to the oil mixture to begin with. Other than that they were terrific!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
This was WONDERFUL!!!! My husband went back 3 times for more and told me we needed to have it at least once a week! I didn't notice much of a difference after adding the 1/2 & 1/2 flour mixture so I added a little sour cream. Still didn't notice a difference but I thought the taste was amazing!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Excellent!!! I didn't use the onion and I used Velveeta instead of shredded Cheddar. Also added a little garlic salt. I layered potatoes & sauce to make sure all were covered.
