Meatball Potato Supper

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This was pretty good. I followed the suggestion of many reviews and baked the meatballs for 15 minutes at 425. To the meatballs I added sauteed onion,celery and garlic. I didn't have any soup mix. I had 1 pound of ground beef, so I used only 3 potatoes. I sliced them very thin. Added fresh green beans and crumbled up bacon. Baked for 1 hr. and 15 minutes at 350 degrees. I will make this again.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Three words...too much pepper. I used the calculate button next to area that says how many the recipe serves, and changed it from 6 to 10 servings. So, I assume that even at 6 servings the amount of pepper called for was too much. I used twice the amount of tomato sauce (putting 8oz. IN the meat mixture)so it would be more moist. Aside from that, this was soooo good. Cooked it on high in the crock for 4 hrs. Then left it on warm til we were ready to eat, about an hour later. Next time I make this I'll probably cut the amount of pepper called for in half.

Quick Glazed Pork and Rice Skillet

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
I'd give this recipe a 5 for flavor. I used my electric skillet. The ratio of rice to liquid is off, so I added about a cup of water. I used apricot/pineapple preserves. I followed the recipe, and the rice never got cooked all the way.In fact,it burnt to the bottom of the skillet and most of the liquid had cooked down so there wasn't much of a sauce. I recommend cooking the rice seprately. Other than that, this was really tasty. Served with a side of summer veggies(squash, zuccini,broccoli,cauliflower).

Easy Lemonade

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
This was really good. I'd never made lemonade before. I recommend using more sugar than it calls for. Next time, maybe I'll add a little OJ to change it up.

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
These were my 2nd try at a no bake cookie recipe from this site. THE BEST so far! I followed the recommendation of the reviewer "Shay", not changing any of the ingredients, just changing the order in which the ingredients are put in the pan. These are delishioso!! My daughter is the only kid I know that doesn't eat chocolate, and she ate 2 cookies right away! Of course, she helped make them,too.

Peanut Sauce I

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
If you like peanut sauces, try this one. I used it on my Beef Fried Rice recipe. I had to substitute soy sauce for the tamari, as I had none. I also put in about 3/4 of a cup of apricot/pineapple preserves...YUMMM. My husband gave this a BIG thumbs UP! My daughter went back for seconds and she doesn't like my beef fried rice dishes. That says alot. I'll be using this peanut sauce from now on in my fried rice dishes.

Spanish Rice Original

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
My husband thought this was good. I didn't exactly follow the recipe. Instead of 2 diced tomatos, I used a can of diced tomatos. Instead of tomato sauce, I used paste. I also left out the corn. For me, it tasted too "tomato-ee". Needed lots of salt. Next time---more broth, less tomato sauce!

Great-Grandmother Steinbeck's Johnnycake (Cornbread)

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
If you're looking for a light textured, slightly sweet cornbread......This is for you. My husband doesn't even like sugar in his cornbread and we finished off the whole batch of them last night with our Gumbo!! As he is stuffing his face he's reminding me "I don't like sugar in my cornbread!" Guess that isn't true anymore. It only took 20 minutes to bake. 30 would have been too long. Also, didn't have buttermilk---substituted 1 TBsp. vinegar in 1 c. milk (let it sit for 5 minutes first). I'll be making this again for sure!! EDIT: Just made this again so I could submit a photo of it.I used yellow cornmeal. I had maybe 2 tsp. of baking powder left (much less than called for) and my cornbread came out great again! Second EDIT: I realized that I left out the fact that when making cornbread I always place my greased pan IN the preheated oven til it gets hot...that way, when you pour your cornbread batter in, it forms a really nice 'crust' on the bottom of the cornbread.

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
Maybe it was because I didn't have any vanilla. I didn't like these. I added about 1/3 of a cup of sugar and they still had a bitter taste to them. Husband suggested that next time I put in shredded coconut.

Caramelized Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I just know this bacon would have been delicious ..... if I had not BURNED it. MY bad.... After 8 minutes and still not crispy enough for my liking, I decided to turn on the broiler "for just a minute" Next thing you know the house is filled with smoke! I will make this again and pay closer attention. ;)

Coffee Marinated Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
really good flavor! Whole family liked this one. I omitted the sesame seeds, and I used garlic that I had roasted a couple days ago. Didn't measure anything, just eyeballed it as usual. marinated steaks for about 8 hours. I asked my husband to guess what was in the marinate.... he thought maybe it was Tea . I'll keep this recipe and use it again for sure.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
These are simply DELICIOUS! I didn't use butter. We use Fleishmans Olive Oil spread. Didn't have any vanilla, though it didn't matter. I would not press these cookies down with a fork. They turned out perfectly when formed into a walnut size ball and placed on cookie sheet. Mine did take almost 12 minutes to bake. Very moist and chewy. This is now my "go to" oatmeal cookie recipe. I might also add that making them walnut size, you will get WAY more than 2 dozen...at least 4 dozen. I've stopped counting!

Hawaiian Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Excellent! This is the flavor and the texture I've been looking for in a home made bread. It is very similiar to the Kings Hawaiian bread I've bought at the grocery. I didn't have any vanilla flavoring but it didn't matter. I followed the recipe as written. This is my new favorite!

Aunt Joyce's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
This is the BEST chocolate cake I've ever made! Very moist. I followed the recipe to the letter with one exception- I had no baking chocolate so I substituted 9 Tbsp. of cocoa mixed with 3 Tbsp. canola oil. I also could not taste the mayonnaise! I'll make this one again and again. Thanks

Mom's Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
First, let me say, I like how the bread I made with this recipe turned out. I also used half the dough for rolls. That being said. My rolls were not light and fluffy (still yummy though). My bread loaf had no problem rising. This was my FIRST attempt at making bread using yeast, so I called my mom. After reading the recipe to her, she told me it would make a heavy bread. Also, the recipe never mentions to knead the dough (it says to mix it). Had I not called Mom, I think it would have been a messy disaster. I will make a loaf of bread with this recipe again. Still looking for a good dinner roll recipe, though. Oh, one hint to add from my mom...when letting the dough rise keep it away from any drafts or breezes and cover with plastic wrap.

Yellow Cake Made from Scratch

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
The only thing that saved this cake was that I put it in the refridgerator so we could eat it cold. It was dry and flat. I followed the recipe as written.

Spiced Pear Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
We really liked this recipe. Even though I wrote it down wrong (I only used 15 oz. of pears, drained the juice and saved it.) I also didn't have any oil, so I added a little extra applesauce. The batter was too thick so I added the pear juice last. Also a bit of nutmeg, mmmmm!! Will make it again, mistakes and all.

Irene's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
Living on a cattle ranch, we also trap the occasional wild hog. I used this recipe on some smoked hog that I chopped up for BBQ sandwiches. WOW it was good. Just a couple alterations. I didn't have any cayenne pepper or liquid smoke, and I felt it needed more brown sugar ( maybe 3/4 of a cup total) For a little extra "something" I added about 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg and some minced garlic. Delicious!

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2007
We loved this recipe so much I made again the next day. I thought I could improve on a good thing so I used Bisquick mix instead of flour (about 1 cup, I eyeballed it I don't measure usually) and increased the milk to about 1 cup also. Omitted the nuts and combined about 3/4 cup of quick oats(oatmeal) to the dry ingredients. After 1 hour in the oven it came out awesome. We will be eating this often! :)
