Grandma B's Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2014
This dish is great, family loves it! As others suggested, I added chicken stock in place of some water, added bay leaves, and black and red pepper to spice it up. And, used diced ham steak with bone. My 19 year old son adds shredded cheese to his, and says it takes a "great" meal to "fantastic!" Some reviewers have commented about the beans coming out very mushy. Please note, beans have different cooking times, so can't necessarily be substituted without considering this and adjusting cooking time. For example, great northern beans take much less time to cook than navy beans. So, if you only have a few hours to cook this dish, great northern might be the way to go. However, if you are going to cook in crockpot all day and don't want mush, navy beans will work much better.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
This pie is great! First time I have ever made a meringue pie, and it was much easier than I thought it would be. Family loved it also. Only change was to use juice from 4 large lemons, which ended up being about 1/2 cup - we like our lemon desserts tart!

Andouille and Chicken Creole Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Family loves this dish! Changes I made: use penne pasta, cut back creole seasoning to about 1 1/2 tablespoons, use minced garlic instead of garlic powder and leave out lemon pepper. Sometimes use turkey sausage instead of andouille. We live in Southeast Texas but are from Louisiana, so we eat lots of cajun food. I make my own "creole seasoning" without salt, and the 1 1/2 tablespoons of seasoning is plenty for us. Adjust accordingly.

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This was very good, family loved it. But, like others, I cooked completely on stove top using a dutch oven. Mixed everything in after browning the sausage, covered, and simmered for about 30 minutes. Turned out great!

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
Just made these, and I was a little apprehensive since it was a true "from scratch" recipe, crust and all, but it was amazingly simple and the bars taste great! Some people have commented that they aren't lemony enough. I think they have quite a bit of tartness to them, I squeezed lemons to get the juice and I used the zest as called for. Wondering if some might be using bottled juice and/or skipping the zest and maybe that is affecting the tartness? Anyway, worth the effort.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
Hubby and I love this soup - we think it is better than the one found at the chain restaurant, mainly because this one is thicker and richer. Only change is I use fresh kale instead of spinach most of the time (less expensive). Enjoy!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I was skeptical at first because the ingredient list seemed so simple - I had most of this stuff in my pantry already for crying out loud! But, this tastes like it came from an upscale Asian restaurant, and it only takes about 30 minutes to make! Only changes: I doubled all ingredients except for the shrimp to make extra sauce (as others suggested), used flour instead of cornstarch for thickening (its what I had in the pantry) and added a half bag of frozen stir fry veggies. Served over rice and had a complete meal in 30 minutes. CANT BEAT THAT!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
I found this recipe before Christmas, and really wanted to try it, but was intimidated about making the dough without a bread machine, so I asked my mother-in-law to get me one for Christmas. I have made these twice, and my 11 year old rated them, on a scale from 1 to 10, as a 12! He and my hubby love them and wish I would make them more often. The bread machine makes it very easy. You will NOT regret trying this recipe. The only change I made was to use canola oil in the dough instead of butter or margarine.

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
Husband and I loved this dish, my picky 10 year old didn't, but I'm not sure if he actually tried it or just looked at and decided (which he does quite often). I did change one thing, instead of using butter, I mixed the potatoes and seasonings in a ziplok bag with olive oil - I wanted to make it a little healthier.

Basic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
Good recipe - warming the milk and butter does make a difference. I added some garlic cloves to the boiling potatoes and then mashed them with the potatoes to add more flavor. I think it would be a little bland for my family if I made it "as is." But, that is the beauty of a simple recipe, you can adjust to meet your family's preferences.

Baked Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2006
I had high hopes for this one, but it was just OK for me. I know some reviewers said it was better with Russian dressing, maybe that was the problem, I used the French dressing. My son did not like it at all, but he's 10 and picky, so I wasn't surprised.

My family loved this dish - my husband and 10 year old son both asked why I didn't make more! Tasty and VERY easy to prepare. You can't go wrong with this!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
Just made this meal for the first time tonight, and the family LOVED it!!! My husband and 10 year old son both had seconds. My husband said it was like you would find in a good Italian restaurant. I thought it was delicious as well. Of course, we love spicy dishes, so this was right up our alley. If you don't like spicy, cut back on the red pepper.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
My husband is a "born and raised" cajun from southwest Louisiana, and he LOVES this dish! It is one of the few things he has asked me to make week after week. My 10 year old son enjoys it as well. A tip for the sticky rice problem some people have mentioned - use parboiled rice. It is a little more expensive than regular rice, but does not clump.
