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.

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.

Hawkeye Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I live in Iowa and when I saw this recipe on The RecipeBuzz last week I had to try it! Go Hawks! I've made this twice this week. The first time with beef roast in a slow cooker, and the second time with a pork roast on top of the stove in an enameled cast iron roaster. BOTH times my husband said it was the best roast he'd ever had, and I have to agree. I wish I'd come across this sooner. He even took the rest of the pork roast to work today and he HATES leftovers!!!!! I will never make a pork roast any other way, ever. As for beef, I will use this but sometimes I also like beef roast in au jus with onions, carrots etc,. So I may slide once in a while on beef...but otherwise...this IS THE recipe!

Tasty Spicy Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2013
Deeeeeelicious! Eating it as I type. I used red onion because I had one huge yellow and three small red. The only thing I will change next time is less stock. I also added some fresh parsley from my garden for the pic. LOVE the mushrooms in it!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Rubbed and Grilled Pork Loin

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
I made this exactly as written except it rained so I cooked it in the oven on 350. It was so good. Definitely my favorite pork roast recipe now. I was slightly scared of the coriander, and there was no reason to be. In fact, I think the coriander added a brightness to the roast. It kept the other spices from being flat. Husband liked it too, and he's not a big spice lover.

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.

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.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
Super easy and the husband loved it also. I used half and half. I think this even beats my mother's recipe! As I was covering it to put it in the fridge after supper, my German Shepherd was watching my every move. So I plopped a couple cheesy macaronies into his mouth and he loved it too! Who'dathunk it!?

Pollock Montreal

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
I used 4 pollock fillets. I carmelized 1/2 large yellow onion cut into slices. I also sliced two button mushrooms, 1/2 red bell pepper, 3 green oinions sliced into super skinny little rounds, 1 roma tomato in thin slices in rounds, and 1 clove garlic. I cooked the red pepper in a separate pan until softened. Once the onions were carmelized I added the mushrooms and garlic to the onions and continued to cook them until the mushrooms were softened. Meanwhile I was cooking the pollock in the oven until almost done. I had sprinkled the fish with the paprika, pepper and some salt. Once everything was cooked to where I wanted it, I put the carmelized onion, garlic and mushrooms on the fish. Then I topped the fish with the thinly sliced tomato. I then put a hefty amount of parmesan cheese over that, then lightly sprinkled some finely grated mozzarella over that! Then I baked until the fish was flakey. I put the oven on broil and put the fish in the broiler. After I took it out I sprinkled the green onion on top. This was delicious!

Lori's Famous Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Excellent crab cakes. I chopped the veggies fine and sauted in butter, otherwise I made exactly as written. I knew these would be good just by looking at the ingredients. Next time I'm adding some cayenne pepper!

Easy and Fun Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
These are the bomb! SO easy and they taste crazy good. I melted some milk chocolate bars in a double broiler and stuck two toothpicks each into the balls and coated them with the chocolate. Then I put them on a parchment covered cookie sheet and refridgerated. Perfect little snack that appease the sweet tooth without overdoing it. I love these!

Happy Cherries

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
Since I'm not much of a whiskey drinker, I use Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum instead. I've already ate one jar myself and made two other jars for co-workers. I have a virgin jar in the fridge calling my name as I type. LOL I think these would also be good with any shnapps flavor. I pour out all the juice (I save it in another jar), add the liquor to half full, then add some cherry juice back in. It's the perfect amount of liquor. I plan to use the liquor flavored cherry juice in other drinks after all the cherries are gone.

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!

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.
