American Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I'm making this for dinner tonight....just wanted to say I did use 12 lasagna noodles as original recipe called for...someone said it only needed 9 with 3 layers of 3 noodles. When you use a 9X13 in pan you do need 4 noodles per layer...3 side by side and one across the bottom of the pan....so you do use 12 noodles total with this method...I don't have a special deep lasagna pan...maybe that would only need 3 noodles per layer??

Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I read the reviews and was really anxious to try what I thought was a simple roast beef recipe in the crockpot. Since I love coffee I also thought it would be great. Before I made this I read lots of reviews and decided to make according to the exact recipe this first time and not "experiment". I followed the recipe to a T and it was very dry and very bitter taste from the coffee. The gravy had no flavor and even salt and pepper did not help from tasting like burnt coffee. The best part of the meal was I did make homemade mashed potatoes...not from the box! But even these had to have butter on them since the gravy was so bad! We ate one helping and I'm proud of my 2 teens for at least eating it for Sunday dinner. Will not make again!!! It puzzles me that so many raved and raved about it! What did I do wrong??

Hamburger Hash Browns

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
made this tonight and my family really liked it. I also left out the veggies and added about 5 drops of Worcestershire sauce and a teaspoon of fresh minced garlic when I added the brown gravy and water. I had about 1/2 cup of Mexican style shredded cheese which I substituted for part of the cheddar cheese. It really tasted like a cheeseburger and fries mixed together in a casserole! A keeper!!

Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I used light corn syrup since that is what I have in the pantry and it was great. I used pecan halves and slightly chopped them. My son loves pecan pie and he had 2 pieces after school today!! I also cooked for about 10 minutes longer because it was too liquidy after 55 minutes. Will make for Thanksgiving!!!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I made this and had the computer calculate it for 12 apples (12 servings) because that is how many apples are in a 3 lb. bag. Used McAntosh which are slightly tart...but, I did the same as some of the other reviews and only used part of the sugar...I believe it called for 3/4 cup and I only added 1/2 cup. I did add a bit more after tasting it when it was finished, probably 3 more tablespoons. It tasted great as I like the sweetness. I did not use as much cinnamon, just a couple of shakes. I think this is a better way instead of following the recipe and potientally ruining the whole batch. Had this for dinner and my daughter ate my bowl after finishing hers!! Will definitely make again this fall!!

Japanese-Style Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
this recipe was great!!! I added a little minced garlic and some minced dried onions while cooking in the wok. I took the advice of someone else and only cooked for 7-8 min. and then finished in a microwave steamer with a scant amount of water. My kids love green beans on Chinese restaurant buffets and these were just like them!! The 3 of us ate the entire recipe!! I'm so glad they love veggies!! I also made an applesauce recipe and pecan pie that I found on allrecipes today!! Served all these along with pork chops for a super dinner!!! These green beans will also be on my Thanksgiving table!

Ultimate Baked Beans

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
I made this recipe for a Memorial Day cookout and everyone liked it a lot! I also did not add the mushrooms and substituted pinto beans for the red kidney beans..don't care for kidney beans! I also baked for only about 1 and 1/2 hours and sauce was just thick enough....I think 2 hours would be too dry. will make again!!
