Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
I've been looking for a really good chili recipe for some time and I finally found it! This IS the EASIEST and BEST tasting chili I've made yet!! I followed the recipe except for a few changes, I added diced green pepper with the ground beef and onion. And as many suggested I added one large can of crushed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. I also added one can of DelMonte diced tomatoes (garlic & onion with the liquid). I did use "Williams Original Chili seasoning" (found it on line), and "Pace" medium salsa. The only thing that wasn't clear to me in this recipe is if I should drain the beans or not. I decided to drain most of the liquid off before adding the beans. This recipe has been added to my favorite, and I will definitely be making it again and again. My search is over THANK YOU Deb!!!!!

Easy Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Ok I need to say that I've never been a fan of corned beef, I use a smoked shoulder for my boiled dinner (no hate comments please). But my honey is always looking for corned beef on St Patrick's day. So this year I decided I'd still make my traditional dinner, AND cook a corned beef in my crock pot. I looked at many of the slow cooker recipes and decided on this one given the ease and the great reviews. I followed the recipe to a T, other than I left out the potato and cabbage (because I was cooking those with my shoulder), I did add the other veggies for flavor, and I used a flat cut of corned beef. I let it cook overnight on low (it prob cooked about 11 hours). This is definitely the way to cook corned beef, it came out very tender and tasty! This recipe was VERY easy to put together, all the ingredients were things I had on hand. Even if you are not a fan of corned beef (as I'm not) but you want to give it a try, I highly recommend this recipe! Thank you Trisheee!! You have (almost) made me a fan of corned beef, and that's not an easy task.

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Just tried this recipe and it is the BEST one I've had yet! Small changes: took other suggestions and used eight eggs, also I used southern style hash brown frozen potatoes because that's all I could find, and added diced green and red peppers (about half a pepper each). I also sauteed the onions and peppers in with cooking the sausage, drained it, then layered on top of the potatoes, then poured the egg/cheese mixture over everything. Thank you for such a good recipe, and thank you to those who said "don't leave out the cottage cheese"! Personally I hate cottage cheese (and prob would have left it out), but after reading so many reviews that warned not to, I decided to go with the recipe. I already plan on making this again for our Christmas morning, to go with my home made cinnamon rolls (also from all recipes: cinnamon rolls 111) they too are the BEST! Thanks again!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
I'm giving this 3 stars for how easy it was to put together, and it did smell really good when it was baking. If you can't have eggs, or need a low fat recipe then this might be for you. However I did not like the results of this recipe, it tasted like something was missing (maybe because there is)! I made it exactly as written with one exception (going by many reviews), I used a spice cake mix everything else was to a T. I do think this recipe has potential, maybe add an egg or two, some vanilla, and I think it needed a little brown sugar (spices were good, but there was no sweetness). But I'm a firm believer in reviewing a recipe as (or as close as) written, otherwise it's not the recipe. Sorry Cindy but thanks anyways, it was worth a try.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2013
Truly the BEST brownie recipe!!! I've been making boxed brownies for years, and when ever I tried a new brownie recipe it was never as good so would go back to boxed. Until now THIS IS THE RECIPE!! I read a lot of the reviews, and based on that I did everything the same except I took one suggestion. I put in only a half a teaspoon of salt, and added a half a teaspoon of baking soda, everything else I followed the recipe to a T. I also didn't beat my eggs much, but I never do when making brownies. They are SO nice and chocolaty fudge like, chewy, and it makes A LOT. I baked mine for 35 minutes and they were perfect (even the ends). Try them but take heed and follow the recipe, you won't be disappointed if you like rich fudge like brownies. Thank you SO much Brooke for sharing this GREAT recipe!!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
I've been looking for a really good layered dip and I've found it! The only changes I made was I put "two cans of refried beans with roasted chiles" into the taco mix (all I could taste with one can was salt, two cans were perfect) I did use all the beans which was good, but next time I think I'll only use half and save half for another time. I also used "light" sour cream and "reduced calorie" cream cheese, and I could not tell the difference. Also I did the layers the same EXCEPT I switched it around when it came to the lettuce, cheese and olives. I put the shredded cheddar cheese, then the lettuce, then the olives. I found I liked the look of it better, AND I could make the layered dip a day ahead (up to the cheese layer), then the next day I chopped up the lettuce (so no wilting and stayed crisp), then added the olives. This took hardly any time to do that, and I think this tastes better if made a day ahead. I'm not one for very spicy food, but I liked the flavor of this without all the heat. If you do like it hotter you can spice it up by using refried beans with a lot more kick. One more thing I'll mention (I know someone else commented) in the video I was turned off by her whole hand (up to her knuckle) going into the dip when she scooped it out with the chip. My solution for this is I put a tablespoon in the dish, so people could scoop it out with the spoon and put it on the nacho chip (worked for me). I will be making this again. Thank you Sue for a great recipe!

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I grew up on this cake, in my family it's referred to as "THE Chocolate Cake". My mom found the recipe in the newspaper (when eggs were hard to get during the depression). It was the B-day cake requested most of the time by my kids. You can just dust it with confectioners sugar if you like, but I make a homemade mocha-chocolate frosting, which my son said is the BEST combination. The frosting is light and fluffy, but this cake is a very dense moist cake (not light and fluffy). The only change (from my mom's recipe) is we always used cider vinager (I don't think it really matters). But it does NOT work to substitute applesauce for oil (as I read in one of the reviews). We LOVE this cake, and it's now on a third generation (my grandkids) asking for it when their B-day comes around!

Christmas Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
This is a good recipe although I did change some things, so the rating is with my changes. Going by other suggestions I used 8 eggs and only one cup of milk. I also sauteed half a red pepper and half a green pepper (dice small) with the diced onion (but left out the mushrooms because I don't care for them). I used Crystal Farms O'Brien Hash Browns (in the refrigerator section, not frozen). I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I mixed the salt, garlic powder and black pepper with the hash browns, then placed in the greased dish, and layered as the recipe states. I baked it for one hour, but next time I will check it sooner (it was a little brown around the edges). Another thing I really liked is I was able to cook the bacon, and sauteed the onion and peppers two days before (kept it cold) and then put it all together on Christmas (didn't have time x-mass eve). This recipe does have a lot of flavor, and was hardy meal my family and I enjoyed on Christmas morning. I'm sure I will be making this again.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
These are FANTASTIC!! I had a 1.85oz package of vanilla pudding mix (so I put the whole box in) I left out the pecans (I didn't want them in my cinnamon rolls), and I cooked mine about 20 to 25 minutes, but other than that I followed this recipe to the T. They came out perfect, and the topping is so good too. It was nice to be able to use my bread machine (that usually collects dust). I will definitely be making these again, my family LOVED them, said they are better than the ones you get at the mall. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

Brownie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Good but it could be better. I had a 10" spring pan (good thing because the filling wouldn't have fit), so I used the whole brownie mix. Also used Ghiradheli double chocolate brownie mix based on the reviews, baked it at 325 for 20 minutes (next time I'll use my favorite browine mix and will prob bake 15 min). Wish I knew what is on top of the cream cheese in the picture. I left out the choc chips in the cream cheese fillling and instead put them on top of the cheesecake after baking. This is VERY RICH and although my family did like it (especially my grandkids), I think it needs more tweeking. I will prob make it again but will change a few more things.

Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
My family loved this with my adjustments: I used "ground" red pepper (I added less, we don't like it to hot), and "canned" diced tomatoes with garlic + onion instead of fresh tomato. I also "doubled" the recipe (got big eaters) so I put one can cannellini beans and one can small red kidney beans. I also added fresh baby spinach and shredded carrotts (cut up smaller). I cooked up one lb ground beef and one lb ground sweet Italian sauceage (sauteed onion, + celery with it). Served it with fresh baked bread. Although my favorite is the Olive Gardens pasta fagioli and I was hoping this would taste like theirs (but it didn't), I gave it four stars mainly because this is a good basic recipe. Will definiately make again, just might make a few more adjustments on the spices. A very hearty soup!

Classic Irish Boiled Dinner

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
This is how I've made my boiled dinner for years (even with my Irish background, I never cared for corned beef). However I don't add green beans and I always get a big smoked shoulder (arox 9 lbs). Remove any wrapping around the ham, put it into a pot (make sure it fits), put enough water into the pot to completly cover the ham, cover with lid. Bring to a good boil, and boil for one hour, turn it over in the pot, cover with lid and boil another hour. Remove the meat (keep the liquid), cover ham with foil and let it rest. Now put the potatoes, onions, carrotts, and cabbage (cabbage should be on top) also (if you like turnip you can add that too) into the liquid the meat was cooked in, this is where the flavor is, cook till veggies and potatoes are tender. PS if you need to you can add more water as you go, but only do this if it is needed. Also I don't add any salt there's enough salt in the smoked shoulder. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Manly Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Sooooo good, easy, nice thick gravy and melt in your mouth meat. YUM! My 21 yr old son LOVE's this stew. I have to say I was a little reluctant to try this but it had such good reviews and now I see why. The only minor change I made was I didn't have beef with onion soup mix (so I used what I had) one pkg Lipton (2.0 oz) dry soup mix and one cube Knorr's beef bouillon. I also added one large onion sliced (I love onion's) the rest I followed to a T. I served it over egg noodles which we really liked, this time I'm going to try it over white rice. Thank you for such a good and easy recipe this is going into my top 10 favorites.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
BEST HAM EVER!!! My honey loves a good ham and said this is the "best ham he's ever had". The only thing I did differant was I added some cloves on top after rubbing the brown sugar on (also I had a 7 lb ham, fit perfect in my crock pot). Oh one more thing I cooked mine for four hours on high, EXCELLANT!!!! Thanks for such a simple but great recipe, it's the only way I'll cook this from now on. P.S. I also can't wait to make pea soup with the left over bone. :-)

David's Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I really like the taste of this cookie, it is soft yet crispy at the same time. I just wish it was "puffy" and had more body to it (then I would give it a 5). I read someone's note that mentioned adding baking powder, I might try that next time. Thanks for sharing this recipe :-)
