Cherry Snowballs

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
These were easy and cute but not very tasty. The shortbread dough needs improvement - the oatmeal is a No, boost flavoring also either butter flavor or almond or vanilla extract, it also needs a tad more sugar... in other words the shortbread should be able to stand alone. The cherry center, no matter how well-drained, will come out with the first bite leaving no cherry for the other half of the cookie. It might be an improvement to chop the cherries and add to the shortbread dough. The snowball idea with the coconut is cute but I really think a flat cookie painted with a little of the icing and sprinkled with coconut would suffice particularly if the shortbread carried it's weight. I might try again with changes but not as it was written.

Zesty Beef Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Delicious! The aroma filled the air & tantalized even my neighbors taste buds. They asked me "what are you making, it's smells so good!" I made my beef broth from beef base. It made the most wonderfully rich gravy. This is a keeper!

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I had used this recipe some time back and LOVED it but forgot to save it. Recently was asked to make egg salad for a friend (which gives me the excuse to make a big batch - as I'm the only one in the house who LOVES egg salad lol), so I had to go searching for this recipe again and realized not only did I not save it before I also didn't rate it! This recipe produces a lovely, light and fluffy, and very flavorful sandwich spread. I grew up with egg salad that had chopped onion and pickle in it and find this recipe to be superior to that for my taste. No excess watering down from pickle juice, just a subtle hint of onion, and the big fresh boost of flavor from the dill weed... perfection! Definitely saved the recipe this time; will use again and again!

Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I tripled this recipe so I could use one loaf for dinner and put two in the the freezer for future quick, no-fuss meals. This recipe produces a juicy, moist, flavorful loaf. I did not have the canned fried onions so used pan caramelized fresh onions instead. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Fresh Strawberry Pie III

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I had been craving strawberry pie from Shoney's (had it as a child but don't have a Shoney's anywhere near me now). This is exactly what I was craving! Everyone in my family LOVED this pie. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks for the recipe Glenda!

Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
(6/15/09) This was excellent. I did use less salt than specified but this recipe is definitely one I'll make again and again. Thanks for sharing it MrsMDSmith (and calling my attention to it on the exchange; it was perfect timing as I was looking for a side to go with dinner!) *(6/18/09 Update)* I wanted to stop by again to thank you MrsMDSmith. You not only gave me a delicious side dish but I used the leftovers to make a main dish that I will probably also do again and again. I chopped the leftovers and mixed in 1/2 lb. of seasoned browned ground pork, rolled in egg roll wrappers and fried to golden perfection. I love a recipe that can give me two distinct meals!

Delicious Beef Tongue Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
It can't get much easier or tastier than this! Tongue has to be the most tender & flavorful part of the cow!

Shrimply Delicious Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Very good. Needed to use up some fresh shrimp. I added a touch of lemon juice and old bay seasoning to punch up the flavor a bit.

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
I was out of shortening so used butter instead (measure for measure). Light, moist, great texture. Made 3 dozen cupcakes. Will use again & again.

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Quick, easy, yummy. The only reason I don't consider it a 5 star is the large amount of velveeta (not a fan). I had no velveeta on hand at all so I used all mild cheddar, shredded finely to mix & melt easily. I will add a touch of garlic next time and I liked the idea another reviewer mentioned, cauliflower. The recipe as written does, indeed, make alot! I scaled it back to 4 servings and still had more than enough to put in the freezer for another quick meal (which is a good thing, quick cook-ahead meal). All in all, very pleasing (with the change of cheese, for us).

Jalapeno Chicken II

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
The whole family LOVED this recipe! Next time I will butterfly the breasts, marinate longer, and definitely not be too thorough with seeding & de-veining the jalapeños (jalapeños are tricky like that, they can smell like they'll have tons of heat and then eh, not so much - my family loves hot and spicy). The flavor combinations tho are fabulous. Definitely will be in regular rotation here!

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
I've used this recipe several times as I always have the ingredients on hand. It comes close to the taste of TB but it will be the sauce or salsa that you may choose to use that will bring the overall taste very close. My son is the TB lover in our house and this satisfies him when he's wanting to go there but I am not. We've used it for tacos & taco salads; still need to give "enchiritos" a try.

Peach Upside Down Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Quick, easy, simple dessert. I did sub applesauce for the shortening and reduced the sugar in the cake batter. With all that sweet yummy-ness on top the cake didn't need to be sweet for me. I'm sure I will make this again and will try another reviewers idea of adding some vanilla to the cake batter.

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I use this recipe sort of as a guide to making a stovetop mac & cheese. I double the pasta, omit the flour & only use 1/4 the amount of cream cheese. I only pop it into the oven for a few minutes to get a bit of browning on the top. My family isn't excited about fully baked mac & cheese so this is my compromise.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
My husband loved this (and found that he liked artichokes!). The chicken does come out extremely moist and tender. I did use shredded parm as opposed to grated - to me there's a huge difference in taste. Also, I cooked 10-15 minutes longer than recipe stated - to achieve a beautiful golden brown on the top. (Certainly didn't dry them out!) Hubby will likely request this again and again.

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Good recipe. I double it all except the eggs; 3 instead of 4. In place of that 4th egg I use a scant cup of leftover mashed potatoes. I also add a splash of worcestershire, lemon juice, 1/2 tsp of old bay seasoning, and 3/4 cup of finely diced bell pepper or celery, whichever I have on hand.
