Cheese Dip I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
Family loves it. I add half tub sour cream to make it more spreadable. Take half out for those who like the dip thicker. Use rest of sour cream to mix with the remaining half for those who like to use it with chips, easy to break items, and thinner dip. I have been making this for several years and thought I had rated it in the past. So sorry for delayed review.

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
Used food processor b/c I have dough function. I didn't follow directions exactly first time and dough heavy. Suggestions for fluffy (beat runny for a while) second time and added a lot of lightness. Also, cover with plastic or cloth when rising so dough tops are not to flakey (doesn't lead to enjoyable eating with it so messy). Was told by family that they were much better than store bought!

3BC (Best Baked Bean Casserole)

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
Added 2 T maple syrup, followed all other direction - very good. Was in rush 2nd time to make, so I cooked on stove top, medium heat, using automatic stir things from drugstore - awesome and fast. Just take off once sugars thicken. This is a keeper

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
Made these for Christmas dinner last year and was asked to bring them back! WOW! They were a hit and eveyone loved them. The hint about the towel to limit soggy was great. Followed a few others too. Will be making again this year! Thanks

Fresh Tasting Black Beans With Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I use minced garlic, 1 T, rather than powder, and 2 T meundu mix in the water to cook with the rice, and do not use dried cilantro. Use significantly less lemon juice (1.5 T) and less beans for more of a rice mixed/beans. Use fresh cilantro once complete. With edits, becomes side dish one night, left overs go into tacos the following.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I used canned beans if I run out of time. I am allergic to soybean oil so this is a great alternative to store bought. Good, easy to make, thanks!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
This is the best lemonade ever! I add raspberry mix (no alcohol) to make a raspberry lemonade. I make it for every special occasion and take a jug when I am visiting my older friends. They say it reminds them of the lemonade their mom used to make.

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
have cooked this 2x now. Cut off all obvious fat before cooking. Did not cook in oil, just put in raw. Didn't have the right kinds of soup so I used 2 cream of chicken, added 2 beef flavor packs, poured some dried onions in, heaping Teaspoon of minced garlic, and no water. Used my slow cooker and WOW! Awesome and had tons of great gravy that I didn't have to make or drain fat or anything!

The Best Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Great recipe! I had no buttermilk, and tough to find substitute. Finally found suggestion for half milk - half plain yogurt; let sit for 10 minutes. Turned out well, husband said he likes this version better than others tried in past. Will be making this again. Thanks.

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Awesome. Have cooked twice and family loves. First time did not have enough kick; so added extra hot pepper. We don't like kidney beans and used a combination of black, navy, and pinto. I also boil for 2 minutes, sit for one hour. Rinse and clean, soak overnight (or while at work). Beans have a lot less gas this way. I also have mixed up meats depending on what I have on hand.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
My family raved about this recipe. I didn't have any cranberry sauce, so I used Marion Berry jam, no onion, and a Russian type dressing. I also read reviews and added a tablespoon of starch so sauce was not thin and watery. Left overs were used in pulled pork sandwiches that was enjoyed by all. I will make this again.

Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
Great recipe. I have made this several times and family loves it. I first made this to cover taste of wild turkey, and have made various different meats, changing the flavor some, but good still the same. I also soak my beans overnight, cook them down and then add broth. The broth is too expensive to waste on cooking beans.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
After looking at several posts and different recipes on this site, decided this one was the easiest to follow. I do not have double ovens, so this recipe also allowed me to cook other items at the same time. I did set meat out for about 2 hours to warm; this did allow for through cooking. I used a 4.5 pound prime rib. I followed directions almost to a "t". I had no garlic so used an organic seasoning pack (onion and garlic). Turned out great - the topping did blacken, but did not deter from flavor. Also, when I removed the roast from the oven, I wrapped up with foil while it "sat" for about 20 minutes (and finished cooking my twice baked potatoes. I was so nervous about the 20 minutes of high temperature; but am glad I tried this out, and will use again.

Soy Sauce Substitute

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
I am allergic to Soy; and this worked great in other recipes that needed soy sauce. My family didn't even realize it was a replacement! Thanks.

Slow Cooker Cider Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Wanted to try something different with shoulder roast. After reading reviews, I decided to use 2 packets of apple cider mix rather than one and reduced overall water. I also added ground cloves (about a teaspoon or so). The results were good, which was surprising! House smelled great during the day and the meat was tender with an apple taste. My husband really liked it; but my 16 year old didn't care to much for it.
