Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
I've been making this recipe for our family for at least 6 years and we still love it! I used to make it exactly as written and it was WONDERFUL!!! Over the years, however, I decided to add a bit here and there to see how it would be. I added 1 cup more cheddar, 1/4 cup more parm, 2 cups of shredded mozzarella, 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp dry mustard. PERFECTION!!! And to make it a meal instead of a side dish, I'll add in 1 pound of diced, cooked ham. WE LOVE THIS!! Happy cooking!!! :)

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
Made recipe as written. Bland. Definitely needs more flavor. And I read several reviews saying to thin out the tomato sauce that is poured over the top. I did NOT do that as I was sticking to the original recipe. I SHOULD HAVE done that! It was too thick and started to burn on the bottom, so I had to add water to the bottom of the pan. I won't make this again.

Mimi's Tomato Soup Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
LOVED this recipe!! For years, I've heard people talk about "tomato soup cake" and, I'll admit, curiosity got the better of me so I just HAD to make it!!! This tasted just like a spice cake and was SUPER delicious!!! I will definitely make this again! Maybe cupcakes sometime, too!!!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Good cake BUT I was expecting more of cake texture. This was. very, very moist with a crunchy almost cookie-like top and the insides were very moist and wet and not the texture of cake at all. It WAS very good, but just not what I expected at all.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
WONDERFUL!! I followed the directions exactly then ran into a problem when I discovered I had NO dried sage! I did have fresh sage so I finely minced that up instead. It came out fantastic and so full of flavor. I will definitely make this again!!

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
FANTASTIC!!! I used the same ingredients listed here in the same amounts. The only thing I did different was to put the oats in the blender to make oat flour and stirred that in. It was wonderful!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
PERFECT recipe! I followed it EXACTLY as written and my family and I are all totally pleased with this recipe. YAY!! The little bit of onion is SO great with the eggs. I highly recommend finely mincing the green onion so that the subtle flavor is all throughout the recipe. SUPER good egg salad!! I will most definitely be making this again... and again... and again..

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Super duper easy recipe for everyday white bread. I will admit, though, that I used 1/2 cup sugar instead of the whole amount listed. Other than that, followed the recipe as is. I will make this again.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
My family and I LOVED this recipe!!! I started out saying that we were going to eat one loaf and then freeze the other to eat in a few weeks. HA! Didn't work! The second loaf quickly disappeared!!! The spices are just right and the crust on top reminds me of an old fashioned homemade pound cake- thick and yummy!! I will most definitely be making this again and again- for our family and for friends, too!!

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Our whole family LOOOOOVED this recipe! I made it just like it is written. I only added a smidge of cornstarch (mixed with cold water) at the end to make the sauce a little thicker. We served this over rice and WOW is it good!! We will most definitely make this again!! Simple, easy and DELICIOUS!!!!

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
A very good soup!!! I gave it 4 stars because I did alter the recipe a bit. I used a ham bone instead of chopped ham and WOW it was over the top!!! I also only used 6 cups of water and cooked it for 5 hours on high in my crock pot. I did soak my beans overnight and then drained them and put them in the crock pot with everything else. Before serving, I sprinkled parmesan cheese on top and it melted nicely into the soup for a little extra flavor. I WILL be making this again for my family!! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!!

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
I usually make the Exquisite Pizza Sauce and decided to try something new today. I gave this recipe only 4 stars because I felt like the recipe as written is lacking. It's a good base, yes, but it needed more flavor. I added 1/2 tsp onion powder and 1 tsp sugar to balance the flavor. The additions worked nicely with this recipe to make a very tasty pizza sauce.

Ricotta Cookies III

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
Oh YUM these are tasty!! I made the recipe exactly as written and ended up with 70 cookies. YAY the more the better!! :) These remind me more of something like a Little Debbie snack cake than a cookie. They are puffy and cakelike on the inside and then they are each surrounded by a slighly lemony glaze. SERIOUSLY good, y'all!!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I've been making this same recipe for YEARS and each time I make it, it is STILL deliciously wonderful!! I'll often put my roast, still frozen, in the crockpot to cook. When I do, I'll cook it about an hour longer and I'll omit the water. This recipe creates the perfect gravy for rice or mashed potatoes!! Delicious and simple! Love that!
