Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
Love this!! Best mac salad I've ever had. Reminds me of my family's potato salad with the Miracle Whip and sugar. I used all the sugar, increased the macaroni to 3 cups and eggs to 6. I also added a handful of frozen peas to the hot macaroni when I drained it.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
This was really good! I used a 48 oz box of Swanson chicken broth and cooked the chicken breast in it until done. Then I sauteed the breast with the onion and garlic. I then added the cumin and chili powder to the chicken and cooked for another minute. I then poured the chicken back into the broth and added a can of black beans, the salsa and lots of corn. I also substituted lime juice for the lemon juice. I cut real corn tortillas into 1/4 to 1/2 inch strips and fried them in oil. I used those to garnish the top once the soup was in a bowl. I also topped with fresh cilantro and colby jack shredded cheese. Hubby wanted cheese tortilla soup so next time I am going to thicken it with lots of Velveeta.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
I loved this!! The only thing I kept out was the beer (beer's for my belly, not my chili!), the habenero and the hot sauce. The habenero I left out because that'd be too hot for hubby, although I'd like the hotness. I left out the hot sauce because I find that it makes dishes bitter tasting. This is a keeper!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I am making this as I type. I used 3 tbls of butter, 10 tbls of honey, 1 tbls of dry mustard, 1 tsp of onion powder and 1/4 tsp of cayenne. My hubby doesn't like onion in potatoes, otherwise I would have used fresh onion. I also didn't have red potatoes so I used 5 whole white ones, that I boiled with the skin on and lots of salt. I boiled them for 8 minutes. After boiling I cut them into 1 1/2in by 1 1/2in chunks, leaving the skins on. I melted the butter, then added all the ingredients, stirred, then added the potatoes. I used a flat cookie sheet that I covered with foil. I sprayed the foil with cooking spray. Then I spooned (with a slotted spoon) the potatoes onto the foiled pan. I covered them with foil and made lots of holes in the foil. I don't want the potatoes to steam. I set for 45 minutes in the 375 degree oven. After 45 min I will take out, take off the foil, pour the remaining liquid over them then cook uncovered for another 10 minutes. After that I will stick them in the broiler for a few minutes to brown them. I will let you know how they taste! Later: They were excellent. Hubby liked them too. He said carrots would be good cooked like this so I am going to try that too!

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Easy smeasy!! I forego the damp paper towel and wrap my corn in plastic wrap. It steams the same way and if we don't eat all the cobs, I can just toss them into the fridge for the next day! I wrap each cob individually with plastic wrap and cook 4 at a time for about 10 minutes. I point their tips to the middle and arrange them in a circle (or square) position. I check to see if they feel steamed and if not, cook for another 2 minutes....they tend to keep steaming in the plastic well after the cooking time anyway. They will be extremely hot if you serve immediately, so I usually cook them beforehand, they stay nice and hot for a long time. Each person removes the plastic wrap themselves, when the corn is on their plate.

Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I loved the taste of the sauce as it cooked. And the smell was incredible. I used only one bottle of the chili sauce. One reason was I've never used it before, two my hubby doesn't like things too tomato-ey. The meat was great but I do have to agree with other reviewers that the sauce was too tangy once I put it on some egg noodles. I too think that next time at the last minute I will add some brown suger and other things to make sure it isn't too tangy. But all in all I really liked it and plan to make it again with a few minor changes.

Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
Great basic recipe. I also add a bay leaf, and 1/8 to 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese. An old italian woman taught my mom to add the grated parmesan, it really adds flavor, depth, richness and thickens it.

Marinated Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I use pretzel sticks and extra virgin olive oil. The EVOO adds even more depth and people try to guess the flavor. When I tell them they respond with Yes that's it! They love them. I've made them with Orvile Redenbacher's butter oil too but the EVOO wins for flavor. Better for you too. I also don't cook mine. I mix it all in a resealable bag and roll it around once in a while for two hours.

Orange Roughy Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I used 5 pieces of cod, because not only do hubby and I eat it but I have 2 out of 5 cats (three don't eat it) staring at me plus two German Shepherds. LOL I melted the butter in the micro. I adjusted the measurements and mixed garlic powder, parsley flakes, italian panko bread crumbs, pepper, almond slivers, spritz of cayenne pepper, and the parmesan together in a bowl. I sprayed some Pam on a baking dish, brushed the butter on then patted the crumb mixture on the top only of the fish. Baked until golden. It was heavenly with wild rice. I added some of the slivered almonds to the wild rice too.

Cayenne Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
I make these all the time. Love them. There are ways to change it up too. I've added dried parsley flakes, celery seed, fennel seed, tarragon, cajun spice, taco seasoning....the list goes on and on. Not all at the same time though! I tend to like it with the parsley flakes, celery seed and extra cayenne the best.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Wow! This is so easy and sooooo good! I've never made alfredo sauce before and was hoping I'd find a recipe like this. This is a keeper! I also made it with skim milk and it was delicious!

Anna's Amazing Goulash

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Way too bitter for me and I didn't even add the beer which would have added to the bitterness. Won't be making this again. Gave it a 2 because I liked the idea of the bacon, caraway and paprika. Will try those ingredients again in my normal stew.

Loose Meat on a Bun, Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
This was fantastic! My husband was witching the whole time I was cooking it that it wasn't going to be any good because of the onions. Well we sure fooled him didn't we Robinrockingbird!? He LOVED it! I could tell the onions would cook down and only add flavor. I too added some lawry's seasoning salt to it like another reviewer mentioned. We live in Iowa and are well acquainted with Maid Rite sandwiches. This is a keeper! My husband said it was the best loose meat sandwich he ever had. I have a feeling I'll be making this a lot! Thanks Robin!!

Creamy Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I don't use the sour cream. I also use velveeta cheese. I think cheddar makes it too sharp tasting. Velveeta is creamier and tastes better. I also add a lot more of the french fried onions because we love a lot! This is a must have side on Thanksgiving in our family.

Smoked Turkey (Without Smoker)

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I am amazed how this tastes just like a smoked turkey. It's actually better because it's moist and not dry at all. A lot less work too. My drippings were too salty to make gravy, but with a real smoked turkey I wouldn't have had those drippings anyway. I had previously froze a homemade brown turkey stock so I used that to make gravy. I cooked mine 1 hour at 350 and 4 hours at 250. It was a 10 pounder. It was so realistically smoked that some of the meat had that pink smoked color! Thanks Phyliis for a tried and true superb turkey recipe!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Eating this as I type! I changed it up. I used 8 slices extra thick bacon, 8 maple sausage links, 1/4 cup small diced ham, 2 cheeks from a green pepper, one cheek from a red pepper and a yellow pepper, 7 eggs and 2 tbls asiago cheese. Everything else I left the same. Diced the peppers and onions. Cooked the bacon in strips and also cooked the sausage in separate pans. Once they were cooked I shredded the bacon and chopped up the sausage and set aside. I then drained some of the bacon fat and cooked the peppers and onions in the same pan that I cooked the bacon. After the veggies were done I added them to the already combined cheeses and potatoes. Then I added the meats and combined all of it. After scrambling the eggs in a bowl I added Paula Deen's House Seasoning to them. Then I poured them into the potatoes and mixed it all up while adding lots of black pepper and a little salt. I also added some of the soft fatty bacon to the top so it would get crispier in the oven. I baked it for 42 minutes until it was still gooey (from the cheese-not the eggs). I think many that feel the dish needs more eggs probably cooked it a little too long and the eggs and cheese got dry. Mine still continued to cook as it sat waiting for it to settle. It was absolutely perfect by the time I cut and served. Next time I plan to use less cheddar because I am not a big cheddar lover in dishes anyway. Next time: american, mozzerella, and Tone's Cajun Seasoning! We loved this!

Jambalaya Deluxe

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
This has a great concept. I didn't use the crab boil and instead used 4 bay leaves, tblsp cayenne pepper, a bit of ground sage, white pepper and 1 tbls ground thyme instead. The stewed tomatoes added a flavor that was just wonderful. It doesn't bother me that LASmith called it jambalaya. Would LASmith have gotten 5 stars if they'd called it Seafood Pasta? I think people can call a dish anything they want. I'd like to know why BJ didn't like it. We thought it was great, and easy too. It makes a lot so I will cut the recipe in half next time, but it will be nice for lunch at work on Monday!
