Blueberry Crumble Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2015
I didn't have fresh berries but did have canned blueberry pie filling. Made the crust, spread the pie filling over and then topped with reserved crumbs. Worked like a charm. Fast, easy and delicious. Only had whipped topping but DH is bringing home vanilla ice cream to top another scoop of this fantastic dessert tonight!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2015
My first "4" star review... out of necessity I made some changes. My berries were fresh, beautiful, quite large and a tad on the tart side so I used 1 cup of sugar. After reading other's reviews I used 4 tablespoons cornstarch and I have to tell you, it never set and was like water in the center of the pie. I don't know about other folks ovens but if I had set mine on 425 and a lower shelf the pie would have been burned to a crisp. I baked it at 375 on next to the lowest shelf and increased the bake time to one hour and 20 minutes. Also covered the edges and they were nicely browned. Thankfully, something told me not to put a crust on top which allowed me to spoon the filling into a small saucepan where I used another 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch dissolved in some water and another 1/2 cup water in order to cook the cornstarch taste out of the filling. It worked. The filling thickened just like I had hoped and I put it back into the pie shell from whence it came! Perfect. I don't think it was this recipe's fault at all. In my own analytical fashion I believe that the berries being very large added to the liquid content and the first addition of cornstarch simply was not enough. The pie is absolutely delicious and there's no doubt that I will do it again, happily do it again. The taste of this pie is deserving of 5 stars!

Scrumptious Penuche Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
I added an extra tablespoon of cocoa to some red velvet cookies and thought a caramel frosting would be a nice change of pace from buttercream. I chose this recipe because all the others called for heavy cream and I only had 1/2 and 1/2. Killer combo!! This was a perfect match for my cookies which got 2-3 grains of sea salt on top as well. Awesome.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
I used a pack of ground beef and a pack of mild Italian sausage, all other ingredients readily available. These little beauties stopped DH when he walked through the door with a "please tell me that smell is coming from our stove and not a candle"! I always follow a recipe as written unless I am forced to sub an item because I simply do not have it. I followed this to the letter. I made homemade bread to go with, tossed a salad and it was the best Italian night ever. There was plenty leftover even after I packed some for DH's lunch. Still had a lot to go into the freezer for another meal. I have deleted all other meatball recipes. They were simply taking up space. This is meatball heaven!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
Dear Hearts, this is an awesome pie. Pease don't confuse this pie with the likeness of pumpkin pie! The simplicity of the recipe is what makes it unique. I have made this pie for years using evaporated milk and eliminating the nutmeg (just not fond of it). My entire family asks for this pie at every event where pie is expected on the menu. If you are a fan of sweet potatoes, you will love the delightful flavor of this pie. You won't be disappointed!

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
Not a holiday in sight but wanted something sweet, easy, and lunchbox friendly...Aha...found it!! These are delicious. Very pretty on a plate to invite a galfriend over for tea or coffee. My DD makes these often to take to work to share with office mates. Can't begin to know how many times I've shared this recipe or told family and friends where to find it. I love easy peazy yummy and oh does this fit!!

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
Okay, I changed up the recipe by eliminating thyme, nutmeg and Worcestershire and still give it 5 stars simply because even without these additions, this is a delicious mac n cheese. I had about half sharp Cheddar and half mild cheddar and to us, it was a great match. Also used a little less than a 12 ounce size box noodles because we like a bit more sauce. PS, it isn't everyday you get a call from DH telling you the mac n cheese was awesome at lunchtime. Chef John, you're my kitchen hero. Many thanks!!

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
This is "pantry friendly", easy to prep and a totally awesome taste. When we do Mexican-in, this is the requested dish. I have it saved in "Family Favorites" and "Main Dishes". If "Most Requested" was an option, it would be there as well. Oh...BTW...I didn't choose this recipe because it was "healthy". I chose it because it sounded good and it paid off!

Candy Apple Jelly

Reviewed: May 23, 2014
Just came from store with ingredients to make our 4th batch of this fantastic jelly. Have given it for gifts, my GK's ask for it when they've run out at home and today I'm showing a neighbor how super simple it is to make, at her request after they finished a jar in a little over a week! Delicious on hot biscuits, toast or even crackers and cream cheese. The color is gorgeous and the taste is beyond delicious.

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
It can't be a sin because I got the recipe from watching the Dugger girls do it!! If "cake" has been in freezer overnight, take it out about 20 minutes prior to serving so it isn't rock hard. We love dry roasted peanuts as a garnish but nuts are a "self-serve". Haven't served it to anyone that didn't at least think about having seconds!! Excellent dessert for any occasion.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: May 12, 2014
I wasn't looking for a "healthy" version of lasagna. I wanted a "knock-your-socks-off" lasagna recipe and with Mrs.Baldes review and a change or two of my own, this recipe knocked it out of the park! I increased Italian seasoning to 2 teaspoons in lieu of adding fennel seeds. Especially since I used 1 (14 oz.) can crushed tomatoes and 1 (14 oz.) can of Italian diced tomtoes. Figured that was enough "Italian" seasoning. I did reduce the salt because of a guest having medical issues relating to sodium. Actually, I don't think it needed it. I added 1/4 tsp. salt to the ricotta and egg mixture and that was salty enough. I did not cook the noodles but did compose the entire dish and let it sit in the fridge overnight and all day until time for dinner. I let it sit for about 15 minutes before serving and it held up beautifully and didn't go sliding all over our plates! Big plus. An FYI...if any of your recipes call for a topping of cheese and you have to cover it with foil...be smart and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Don't say I didn't warn ya!! I had 5 adults for dinner and 3 kiddos under 12 and there were NO leftovers. I didn't think it was too much work for the enjoyment we got out of it. Excellent recipe!!

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
Had all ingredients and a lb. of ground beef thawed so decided to give it a whirl. Didn't have tomato-vegetable juice or celery flakes. Subbed a can of diced tomatoes and cut up one stalk of fresh celery and didn't change anything else. Might not win any awards in the "looks" department but I guarantee it will win hands down, the "quickie comfort" category. It's delicious!

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
I don't think I've added any recipe to more than 2 locations in my Recipe Box...until this one! Side dish, Main dish and Family Favorite. By far better than anything out of a jar, 3 ingredients..okay, 4 with a dash of garlic powder. Have had Alfredo sauce in a big name restaurant and it was overpowered by waaaay too much garlic! Tasted like a garlic chowder. Not good. I have made this recipe as written: plain, with broccoli; and with broccoli and chicken. GK's love it and when DH took it to work he called home for the recipe to share with co-workers. Fast, simple and delicious, my kind of cooking. Can't ask for more!!

Chicken Strawberry Spinach Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
This is my all-time recipe for a lunch time or dinner time salad. Whenever you can get your hands on fresh strawberries and spinach, your salad problems are dramatically reduced. I season the chicken with a bit of adobo seasoning when cooking, in lieu of the garlic (I know, I'm one of the few who doesn't tolerate garlic well). The lime makes the dressing very refreshing. I've put a teaspoon or two into my favorite ranch dressing just to perk it up a bit and we really liked it. Also used pecans instead of the almonds, just because they're preferred. Again, it's an all time, all season, AllRecipe fav.

Party Kielbasa

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
I've used Kielbasa as well as meatballs (yep, the frozen ones, too)and if I use ketchup the amount of grape jelly is reduced by 1/4 to 1/2 cup. It's really sweet if using the full amount. We like it with several healthy dashes of Texas Pete or Frank's Hot Sauce. Have also made it using barbeque sauce and Riffyraff's suggestion of chili sauce. It's a super simple recipe but quite versatile. Haven't found anyone that didn't like it no matter how it was made! It's typically served for Super Bowl Sunday and New Year's Eve get-togethers at my house. Deeeelish.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
We love this recipe with just a couple of subs. I do start with a couple Tbs of EVOO and in place of the chili sauce, I use Chinese Hot Oil (Please, only a smidgen!!). I've often added cut up chicken tenders (stir fried)and it is easily a delicious meal! Come to think of it...sounds like dinner!!

Easy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
Tucked one into the freezer for us and took one to a neighbor on the mend from recent surgery. Used a rotisserie chicken and added milk to the soup and used canned mushrooms, drained, and a small can of mixed veggies. Neighbor has asked for the recipe. It does remind you of chicken pot pie. Very comforting on a cold, rainy day, easy and fast to put together and super yummy.
