Sausage-Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
Simple to make and my meat-and-potatoes hubby loved it. I sliced the sausage into bite-sized pieces. Put it together and in the foil early in the day and refrigerated until about an hour before dinner. Thanks for sharing. August 2012 update: added a sliced onion to the packet this time and it turned out even better!

Tiger Butter II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Made these and sent to hubby's work for all the folks along with some other goodies and they raved about them. Will be doing every Christmas now. Followed recipe exactly and cut them into squares while still a little soft. Melt in your mouth!

Breakfast Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Awesome! Love that it doesn't have bread in it and everyone thought it was the bomb. Had for Christmas morning and everyone raved. Just put 2 potatoes in the microwave until cooked and cut up for the hashbrown part, everything else as written. Perfect.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
Cooked last night - mighty tasty, but cooked for several hours, covered, to ensure tender chicken.

Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Excellent taste; delicate texture; easy to put together; even on our convection setting, though, these did not cook in 8 minutes - it took 10 at least.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Made this for Easter and really enjoyed it - only had 3 bananas, but that didn't seem to bother it. As another reviewer suggested, I broke up the wafers and that was a great suggestion, as it made it easier to serve and eat. Thanks for the recipe, Patty.

Blueberry-Sausage Breakfast Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Had a "best" family breakfast, but this has been voted the new favorite. Cut the recipe in half for 6 people and cooked in an 8 x 8 casserole. Should not have halved the sauce, as it was not enough by about 2 portions - we got 9 squares. Used fresh blueberries. Used pam to grease the dish and used lowfat plain yogurt for half the sour cream amount, as that is what we had on hand. Did not bother with the pecans and used Jimmy Dean's lowfat sausage. This is an excellent recipe and we will be having this again. Thank you, Peggy, for a recipe even hubby, who doesn't care for blueberries, enjoyed.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Everyone loved this. Seasoned ribs with a rub before baking and did not finish off on the grill because it was unavailable, but they were tender and great anyway. Several people mentioned they loved the sauce, and I will be using the sauce on chicken as well. Thanks for sharing!

Chicken Hurry

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
This was exactly what I was looking for tonight - EASY, yet yummy. Lined the pan with foil and used two bone-in skinless breast halves, but all the sauce. Per another reviewer's suggestion, did not cover, and cooked for an hour. Tender and moist with minimal effort on my part. Stuck a potato in the oven beside the pan - what could be easier? Thanks for a great idea!

Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
Great way to get the little ones to eat some oatmeal! I thought it had too much milk - next time will cut it down to at least 3/4 or maybe 2/3 cup, or 1/2 cup with another egg - to give them some more protein. Added some cinnamon and used about 1/8 cup sugar/Splenda mix, so they would not need so much syrup. Thanks for a wonderful idea for a nutritious breakfast.

Beef 'n' Eggplant Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
Turned out very tasty. I did not measure the onion or eggplant, just used a whole one of each, and peeled the eggplant in hopes that it would disguise it enough to fool picky hubby! Sauteed the onion, eggplant and garlic together, while browning the ground meat in another pan, in order to drain the fat from the meat. Then put all in pan together with tomato sauce and seasonings before placing in crust to bake. Yummy. Thanks for a sharing!

Pecan Breaded Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
Wonderful idea!! Used boneless pork loin chops because that is what we had on hand - they were quite thick and frozen, which I thawed IN the maple syrup and left in the syrup for another hour or so to marinate somewhat. Then put pecans in food processor until finely ground and patted firmly into the chops. Browned in a mix of butter and grapeseed oil and then placed in 325 degree oven for an hour or so to insure they were completely cooked and in an attempt to tenderize. Great flavor - didn't add any other seasoning (a rarity for us) and reasonably tender too. Thanks for a great idea - will use on chicken breasts (or thighs!) next.

Made with 2 Roma tomatoes, as they were on hand, 2 avocadoes, 1 bunch green onions, teaspoon minced roasted garlic, 1/3 cup cilantro, tablespoon oil, tablespoon red wine vinegar, 2 oz feta, juice of 1/2 lime and about a tablespoon of orange juice. Everyone loved it!

Kielbasa and Bow Ties

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
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.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
Cut recipe in half and got 6 dozen out of it! Made first batch without nuts for the grandson and then added 1 cup chopped pecans to remaining dough. Soft and yummy - a hit. Thanks for sharing.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
We were without power due to Ike, so needed a crockpot recipe, as we could plug that into the generator. Used skinless thighs, as that was what was on hand. Pretty good flavor and easy. Served over whole grain penne. Did not have cream of chicken, so used a can of beef gravy mixed with a chicken gravy packet. Should have mixed the cream cheese more thoroughly, and next time will add a little milk to make more sauce.

Honeyed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Very good and very easy. Used 6 tablespoons honey and uncovered the dish during the last 1/2 hour of cooking to brown. Had to move our stars from 5 to 4. This time, we used the boneless chops and have to agree with some of the others - not much flavor and kinda dry. Still doubled the honey - even the sauce seemed lifeless this time around (:

Oatmeal Pie IV

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Very good for a snack pie - quick and easy and not as unhealthy as some. My dad liked it - cannot guess it is oatmeal!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
This is very good. A little time consuming, but worth it. A few changes to our pie were: grated fresh in place of sliced carrots; no celery; Lesuer peas; a can of cream of chicken and cup of water in place of the broth; and, 2 diced cooked potatoes added just before simmering. A hearty meal.
