Dad's Pan-Fried Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
Just made this tonight for supper and everyone loved it. I had to stop my 7 year old daughter from eating it all so my husband could at least taste it. He finished it all. It was very easy to make and i really just eyeballed the amounts and it was fantastic.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I make a quicker version of this. I use only cheddar and the velvetta. I do four cheeses for a dressed-up version. For less dishes, i drain the macaroni in the same cook pot, then add the milk, cheese, egg mixture into the warm pot with the macaroni----just let it melt slightly, and add into the greased pan and bake!! Very easy and family loves it.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I really really like this recipe, but i did think that it was time intensive. I will follow the advice of others by pan frying in small pieces next time so it will be faster. I also used mushrooms and doubled the sauce as others suggested. It looked like it was missing something, i would add peas for a spash of color next time. My daughter, who is 7, loved it!!! This is a keeper. Thanks.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Very tasty. I leave out the onions because the kids aren't much of a fan of those. I also add 1/4 C of cheddar cheese.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Very tasty, i added half a chopped onion with the garlic. At the end i added 1/4 or less of heavy cream to thicken it up and stick to the pasta. I used preminced jar garlic so i ended up guessing on the amount. Kids were ok on it. Their loss.

Pickled Red Beet Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
My grandma, who was Pennsylvania Dutch, always used cider vinegar and she didn't add any onions. I am giving it a try. If there wasn't enough juice to fill the jar, she was just add warm water, then shake to mix. Thanks for the recipe, we always had them, but i never had a recipe.

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
I enjoyed this alot. To make it a little more spicy, i would add in some red pepper flakes. I like the crunch of the almonds.

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I really liked this and so did my husband and a coworker that dropped by. I didn't have some of the ingredients, so did make substitutions, regular onion, white wine, and fresh spinach which i just slightly wilted at end of cooking. I think i will add some garlic next time too. I also didn't add cream to just the pasta, just a little oil to keep farfella from sticking. I did use less pasta than called for so i did have enough sauce. Very good~!!!!

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Whole family loved it. It was done quickly on high. My crockpot has the ability to turn it up to 375 degrees, so i browned it first and then slow cooked it on low and it was very moist.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
I really liked this and thought this was easy to make. My husband thought it was not as flavorful as it could be. I did cook the chicken and then removed it to keep warm. Then cooked the mushrooms seperately. I did not have any sherry so i just used white wine along with the marsala.

Cajun Crab Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I have made this several times now and it is just easy and very flavorful. I passed it on to a friend and she forgot the thyme. It really does need to have it. Enjoy.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
I just made this tonight and it was really good, both my kids, 4 and 7 year old, gave it two thumbs up! The only thing i changed was that i added more curry powder and will probably add 3 tsp next time. I think you could decrease the amount of the butter by 1/2, making it a little bit healthier. The long cooking time keeps this recipe in "my days off" list of supper ideas though.

Slow Cooker Maple Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I made this earlier in the week and everyone ate it all. My son rated it "double thumbs up". I am making again today. I did double the sauce ingredients because i had more ribs. Flavors aren't overwhelming and i might try adding some BBQ sauce when on the plate. Very easy to do as i mix the sauce right in the crockpot and you don't have to brown/sear the meat. I made this again, but should have tripled the liquid 'cause it was too dry. Otherwise it was very good.

Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I converted the recipe for a serving of 4 and i will next time cut down on the rum and brown sugar, it was just a little too much for me, but my husband and 7 year old and 4 year old children liked it as is.

Baked Orange Roughy with Veggies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
My husband and i liked it, but the kids didn't think too much of it. We didn't have any green peppers, but we both agreed that it wouldn't have helped it. I really seasoned it well with the lemon pepper and salt and it baked up easily in 20 mins. I loved the zest of the tomatoes.

Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Husband liked it, kids thought ok, but didn't eat too much. I had to make my own Russian dressing, and only had 1/2 packet onion soup mix and 1/2 amount of apricot preserve to make recipe. I liked it and saving recipe for future use. Nice to know I can replace pork with chicken. I think would work well in crockpot.

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2008
I MADE THIS BECAUSE I LEFT OVER SQUASH AND NEEDED A SIDE DISH. MY HUSBAND WRINKLED HIS NOSE AT IT WHILE I WAS COOKING IT BUT HE RATED IT AS A 10!!! MY KIDS THOUGHT IT WAS OK. I ADDED A DASH OF FRESH GRATED NUTMEG AND I THINK THAT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. WE WILL BE HAVING AGAIN AS THE ADULTS LOVED IT. OH, AND I CUBED MY SQUASH AND BOILED IT IN MY STOCK UNTIL SOFT, THEN PUSHED IT THROUGH A RICER AND ADDED TO THE RISOTTO AT THE END OF COOKING.
