Kielbasa Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2015
This is a great winter meal. I did not use butter to sauté the sausage, onions and bell pepper, as the sausage had plenty of drippings. My can of tomato soup was the family size one, which worked fine. Did not have a can of broth so used 1 1/2 cups of water with a bouillon cube as sub. Added 2 cans of drained ranch style beans. Cooked in slow oven till ready to cook cornbread to go along with it, and removed from oven to simmer when adding the shredded cabbage. Did not add salt but did put pepper when sautéing the sausage. Yummy, really hit the spot. Thanks for sharing

Fiesta Tater Tot® Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2015
This was a nice change from our regular hamburger dishes and we really liked it. For ease, I browned the beef, adding the diced yellow onion during the last bit, to soften. Added at that point a can of pinto beans and the taco seasoning packet. Poured that mixture into a 9x9 pan (perfect size, as it turned out); topped with shredded cheese; poured the mixture of soups and milk over the top, sprinkling with a bit more homemade taco seasoning; and refrigerated until 30 minutes before dinner time. At that point, preheated the oven while covering the top of the casserole with tater tots, which required less than the amount called for here, and also no bottom layer of tots. Cooked about 25 to 30 minutes, as it started out cold from the fridge. Easy and quick. Hubby like as is and I did too, but found it even tastier with sprinkles of Tobasco sauce. We found the layer of tots as a topping to be more than adequate and don't think either of us would have liked it half as much with an additional layer on the bottom. Yum. Thanks for sharing.

Festive JELL-O Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2014
So easy. Used the method of cooking popcorn found on this site in a paper bag - one/half cup popcorn mixed with 3/4 tsp oil and placed in paper lunch bag, folding the top over several times. In our microwave, the popcorn cooked in 1 1/2 minutes, but the directions say 2-3 minutes, stopping when there are 2 seconds between pops. Any method you chose for your popcorn, however, don't make the same mistake I made and dump it directly nto the marshmallow mix -it took forever to dig out the unpopped kernels. The second batch, I poured the popped corn onto paper towels and picked out the unpopped kernels before using. Also, melted the marshmallows and butter together in a large pot on the stove and then turned it off before adding the popcorn. Quick and easy. This made 12 - 13 large treats.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2014
This worked great. In our microwave, it took 1 minute and 45 seconds. Tried the suggestion about the tape, but it came undone and wasn't needed anyway. Used the same bag twice with good results. This makes 12 cups of popcorn

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2014
After seeing an article which claims collard greens can reduce cholesterol 13% more than prescription drugs, have been wanting to try cooking some. Of course, with the bacon used for seasoning, not sure how much good remains but these are really great - the additions of some of the reviewers are necessary to make it so. No olive oil - with all the wonderful bacon drippings (used 6 slices), why? Sauteed the onion and added the garlic in the drippings before adding the bacon back in. Used water and a cube of chicken bouillon in place of broth, as that was on hand. Did not add salt, as there is plenty in the bouillon. Did add about a tablespoon of sugar (mix of white and brown). Cooked all afternoon on low heat, barely simmering. Yummmeee! Thanks for sharing.

Beef Paprika

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2014
This was pretty good; however, if I make it again, I will reduce the ketchup to 1/2 cup, leave out the brown sugar and make sure the paprika is not Hungarian sweet - all to reduce the sweetness, as it came out too sweet for us. I reduced the salt to 1 teaspoon and that was plenty and did not brown the meat. Thanks for sharing!

Easy Crispy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
This was tasty, but I think mostly due to the spices added not called for here. I had 6 breasts, which I cut into tenderloin liked pieces. I sprinkled them very liberally with cayenne and Paul Prudhomme's chicken seasoning on both sides before dipping in the butter and crumbs. My hope was that, if the chicken did turn out crispy, they would be nice for leftovers and a lot better for us than fried, a stick of butter and sleeve of crackers aside. However, even though after I placed a paper towel under and on top of the leftover pieces before storing in the fridge, they did become soggy when cold. Also, we added at least a teaspoon and probably 2 of both the cayenne and chicken seasoning (like seasoned salt, but more for chicken) were needed for what flavor resulted. Not sure a teaspoon of seasoned salt and a pinch of garlic would have done much for 6 chicken breasts. Thanks for sharing - this was easy and worth cooking if eating warm and adding a lot more spices.

Only about half the kids liked these - and I, who love condensed milk and caramel, did not like them either. :(

All the 5th grade kids liked these. My food coloring drops never did make the orange color look quite right. We used m&m's for the eyes and candy corn for the nose - very cute

Chef John's Easy Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
This was really good. We'd been to an apple orchard in Iowa and had an abundance of Jonathan apples. They were not large, so just measured 6 cups of peeled and sliced. Did not make a lattice for top, but used a lot of cut outs instead. So yummy - of course, it is from Chef John!

Sherry Braised Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2014
As expected, Chef John delivers a delicious and easy, yet extravagant dish! We had a little more than half the short ribs needed, and should have halved the sauce, but am glad we didn't, as it is sooo good with mashed potatoes (another of Chef John's easy recipes). Yummm

Chocolate Banana Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2014
Let me say that, because of what was on hand, I changed this a bit but am certain the original is even better and this turned out wonderful! I used a graham cracker crust and no nuts for swiftness and ease. Also, because I was afraid I would run out of room, did not use all of the second banana - and could and should have. Everything else was as directed. Mouth full of awesomeness with each bite. Can't wait to try it with the pecans in the crust; just didn't have time to make a crust! Thanks for sharing, Jeannette

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
Used buttermilk in place of milk and Greek yogurt in place of sour cream as changes of necessity (had these on hand). Probably added a little more sugar, as did not measure and DH likes his cornbread on the sweet side. This is a great recipe for cornbread that tastes like that we had at home back in the prehistoric age, when I was a young girl. Thanks for sharing!
