Mashed Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
These were great. Used leftover mashed potatoes and FHIVESHOT's suggestion of flipping instead of brushing the egg over tops. Also, sauteed my onions in bacon drippings (I know, but only 1-2 x's a year, so. . .). Left out the flour and seasonings, but did mix the egg with the mashed potatoes when adding the sauteed onion. Next time, will flip these over after 20 minutes, but leave in for another 10 after that. They browned well and did not fall apart. Made 3 very large pancakes. Thanks for sharing!

Breakfast Kolaches

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This worked well with a few changes of convience. Do not have bread machine, so mixed the heated milk and sugar to about 115 degrees and added the yeast. Allowed that to foam about 10 minutes, then added the melted butter, egg, and combined dry ingredients by hand. Covered the whole thing and allowed to rise several hours then made a few with small sausages. Put the remaining dough in fridge, covered, overnight, and made some more for breakfast the following day. Put remaining dough back in fridge and will make some more and see how the freezing process comes out with these. Thanks for sharing a winning recipe for one of DH's favorite treats!

Zesty Porcupine Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Per advice of scoutweese, added 1/2 can of the soup to meat and baked at 400 - almost 40 minutes, which was too long. By then, they were charred. Added 2 cans petite diced tomatoes for more sauce to serve on noodles. Pretty good, but too much Worchestershire even for me.

Made muffins with this with part applesauce; part Splenda, part brown and part white sugar; 3 cups zucchini; a pinch of nutmeg; and a few more blueberries. Took some to work and everyone loved them. Yummy - thanks for sharing, Laujra

Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Surprisingly excellent flavor! Used on pork tenderloin and omitted the salt, as there is so much in both the soy and Worchestershire sauces and did not include parsley flakes just by oversight. Grilled the tenderloin and it was delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!

Kids Favorite Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Cannot believe I have not reviewed this - we've been using it for years! Only thing we change is oatmeal - about 1 cup ground in mini processor - in place of cereal. Tastes great and holds together well. Thanks so much for sharing

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Am giving five stars because our grandchild asked for them again today after eating yesterday! Cut in half and used whole grain flour in place of all purpose and plain yogurt in place of sour cream. Also ground up the oatmeal in the mini food processor. Because used whole egg in half the recipe, did not add milk, as it was moist enough. Also used all the cinnamon, baking powder and soda and added nutmeg.

Very nice. Made in the 9x13 with 3 29oz cans of peaches and doubled everything else. Would not have ever been able to guess the crust ingredients from taste - it is great. Thanks for sharing!

Mexican Strawberry Water (Agua de Fresa)

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Scaled this way down to have a serving for DH to carry to work in his water bottle. Delish. Just used the strawberries, sugar and water, with ice for the latter part of water, tho am sure it would be great with the lime and mint and hope to try that way. Thanks for sharing!

Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Cooked as instructed, but only had 3 lbs of top sirloin. Grandson and hubby both ate it up - hubby without his usual A-1 and that says a lot. Thanks for sharing.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
This is the genuine article! As suggested by Allermom, baked in a 13x9 pan for almost 40 minutes. Used only half the amounts for icing because it was one layer. Yummy and rich.

Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
Used almost 2 pounds of chicken tenders sliced; one large vidalia onion, 1 1/2 red bell pepper; a whole packet of taco seasoning; and, did not measure the salsa, just spread it on the bread. Cooked the thinly sliced onion and bell pepper till tender and then browned the chicken and added the veges back in before making the sauce. We just toasted the french bread halves and did not slice until cooked. We did not measure the cheese either. This was great and completely gone between the 5 of us. Thanks for sharing!

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Made with the suggestions of others of 1 1/2 's the filling and it was delicious - like lemon meringue pie without the meringue.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
Made this morning with both blueberries and strawberries. Was tempted to use applesauce in place of the oil, but with only 1/4 cup in question, went with the oil as it seems to make a more tender cake/muffin. Was afraid it would not be enough sugar for the blueberries, as they were not real sweet, but it was perfect even for them. Added about 1/2 tsp or more cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the dry ingredients. As suggested by Katie, started out at 425 and turned immediately down to 400. Rose to great heights! Thanks for sharing!

Cabbage Burgers

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I scaled this down to four servings to use 1 pound of ground beef. Per Mels' suggestion, used frozen rolls instead of loaves. Next time, will try with one roll for bottom and one for top. It made 6 VERY large burgers. Also used preshredded packaged cabbage and no water. Hubby loved these.

Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Would have given 5 stars for the flavor if the breading would stay on and the bottom would be crispy. After browning (which took off quite a bit of the breading - will try Linda MClean's suggestion next time (used her ranch dressing suggestion); placed chicken on rack in oven, but the bottoms still came out soggy - and they were crisp from the browning when they went in! Great flavor, tho, and will keep trying to find a solution.

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Sprayed pan with cooking spray and sauteed sausage; drained as much grease as possible. Put 1 large diced onion and one diced red bell pepper in pan with sausage and cooked until the tender; sprinkled with garlic powder. Used 1 can diced tomatoes and 15 oz can tomato sauce. Cooked whole grain penne separately and added in at end of cooking time. Hubby loved it.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Used 4 chops. Marinated, as suggested by another reviewer, in apple juice-soy sauce mixture for a little more than 24 hours. Then browned in pam-sprayed pan. Placed in foil-lined pan. Used one can of apple pie filling, as also suggested by the other reviewer, and sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg over the top of the apples, after heating with 1/2 cup butter in pan. Covered with additional foil and cooked at 350 for 30 minutes, then uncovered and sprinkled with brown sugar and left uncovered for another 15-30 minutes. Yummy.
