Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2000
I made these for Christmas and tinted them with green food coloring. Instead of rolling into balls, I rolled them out on waxed paper and cut out the mints with miniature holly shaped cookie cutters. They are delicious and beautiful and just melt in your mouth. My kids can't keep out of them!

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
This recipe is excellent. The flavor combinations are delicious. The raisins, sunflower seeds, and cheese make this dish a winner.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
What a delicious cake. It is a very light, tender cake with a rich buttery flavor. I ended up having to make two of these because the first one fell apart. I used a "rose" shaped bundt pan, and I think it was just too tender for that type of pan. When I baked it in a traditional bundt pan, it came out perfectly. I think I might try to double the glaze next time.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Now I'm not really a chili fan, but I love this chili. I don't even like beans, but I do in this chili. Wonderful combination of flavors. We just topped with the shredded cheese.

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
This was delicious! I did substitue turkey ham. The flavor was superb, and it was fairly easy to put together.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I made this for Thanksgiving Dinner in lieu of my husband's mother's authentic creamed corn scraped from the cob. Even though it isn't in the same category "Grammy's" creamed corn, it was still a huge hit. We will definitely make this again.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
This was a favorite for my whole family. My husband pronounced this was the best meatloaf I'd ever made. It was moist with a smooth texture and held together beautifully.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Wow, these are delicious. Due to lack of the proper ingredients I used applesauce instead of apple butter and omitted the wheat germ. I also used 2 whole eggs because I don't like to throw the yoke away, and, contrary to current popular belief, I think the WHOLE egg is good for you. I used only whole wheat (I ground the equivalent) 2 cups of soft wheat). This is they type of recipe that will taste great with any minor alterations you make. I will definitely make these again.

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
This is delicious! I used a large 44 oz jar of spaghetti sauce and added about 3/4 of the jar. I could have used the whole jar if the pan would hold it. I also followed one reviewer's suggestion and used ricotta cheese. We will definitely make this again, and I might try a larger pan next time.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars for ease a preparation and taste. This makes a wonderful family night supper. I omitted the oil to save fat calories. I did not add any water, but added about 1 cup of beer. At the end of the cooking time, I added about 3 tablespoons of arrowroot (healthier than cornstarch) shaken vigorously with 1/4 cup of water, to the beef tips and allowed to simmer until thickened. We served this over rice.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

These are moist and delicious -- a perfect muffin recipe. I always keep shredded carrots in my freezer so this makes it much easier.

Beef-Stuffed Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
My family voted that this recipe is a keeper. Since the ground beef is baked in the squash, make sure you get very lean meat. I made the recipe just as described and would not alter anything. It was delicious, easy to prepare, and looked very impressive--pretty enough for company.

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
Wow! This bread is fantastic. I have made it for friends and every time I hear that this is the best banana bread they've ever had. I've been using a 100 year old family recipe, but no more. I first made it just like the recipe's instructions. Then I made it with freshly ground soft wheat flour and sucanat with honey. Even my white flour friends loved it with the whole grain flour. I love this recipe! Why eat the bananas when you can let them ripen and make this bread?!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2003
My family loved this. I prepared as directed. Allowing for the different sizes of potatoes, I made sure the pieces were relatively small. I had no trouble with the cooking time. I consider this dish repeatable and easy to prepare. I served this with the Sorta Salisbury Steak and Chocolate Chess Pie for dessert.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
These were a huge hit at my daughter's baby shower. The only change I made was to bake the meatballs instead of frying them. I used 90% ground beef and baked on foil lined cookie sheets. There was almost no grease. I also used Panko bread crumbs. They are far superior to traditional bread crumbs. The meatballs themselves were incredible. This will be my new meatball recipe.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I have made this recipe twice with great success. I read the reviews and so was forewarned to be cautious and leave plenty of time for cooking -- it took mine almost an extra hour. I doubled the recipe and baked the potatoes in a 9x13 inch pan for 45 minutes covered with foil. I removed the foil and baked another 30 minutes and then tested the potatoes. They needed another 30 minutes baked covered with foil. I finished by removing the foil, covering with Parmesan and baking a final 20 minutes. They were awesome. The cheese on the edge of the pan was crispy and delicious. All but one spoonful was eaten and guests raved. This will be a staple in my house.

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
We love this soup! It is very much like one at Olive Garden. I serve this for dinner with cinammon toast for a warm, comforting meal.
