Quick and Easy Ham with Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This was so easy to make. I used 3 ham steaks instead of 2, and pineapple chunks instead of crushed. We like our sweet potatoes a little sweeter so I just used a touch more of brown sugar. I didn't use the marshmallows, thought it would be too sweet. My husband had 2 huge plates, and he's not a big eater. He also said it smelled like Thanksgiving in the house. I definatly will make this again.

Crust for Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
My sister in law called to see if I had a recipe for crust. She was making chicken pot pie for her mom and dad, but store bought biscuits for the crust. I have never made my own crust before. I made enough for 2 pies, and they were awesome. Very simple to make, and no mess. I rolled it out on wax paper with no effort at all, and it took very little time. The crust was very flaky and light. Definatly a keeper. And now, thanks to this recipe I will be the designated pie crust maker in the family. But, at least I get a pie or 2 out of the deal.

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
My husband asked me to make salmon patties the way his mom makes them..which is 1 can salmon, 1 egg, 1 sleeve of saltine crackers..which I think is very dry,and the crackers is all you taste. So I looked on here for other variations. I found this recipe,and although I didn't have the celery salt, or dill weed..I decided to make it anyway. I used a 16 ounce smoked precooked salmon filet we got for christmas, italian bread crumbs instead of the herb(all I had)and before I fried them, I dipped them in egg and gave them a light coating of bread crumbs. I brought a couple to my neighbor to try(because I do not like salmon),and she loved them. And my husband loved them, he thought they were awesome,and prefers them now over his mom's dry nasty ones..haha..(but don't tell her that.)

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
I had some apples I bought, that no one ate, and I needed to make something so they wouldn't go to waste. I found this recipe and I loved it. Very easy. 20 minutes after it came out of the oven, there was one little peice left. I wouldn't change a thing in it either, came out perfect to the 10 people that ate it..will definately make it again.

Pizza Pan Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
I give this cookie a 3 for texture, but the taste was kind of on the bland side.I didn't have a pizza pan, but wanted something sweet,(like, if I don't get something sweet right now, I'm going to go nuts kinda day) so I took this recipe and made normal cookies. They tasted like they were missing something. I added raisons to them, but it didn't help. The mixture was actually sweeter before I baked it.

Scalloped Corn and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Based on other reviews, I left out the sugar, and only used 1/2 teaspoon of salt. It was very good. I also used a cup of shredded chedder cheese, becuase we love a lot of cheese with our broccoli. I did, however have to cook it for the full hour. At first I was only going to bake it for 45 minutes..but it looked too watery on top when I took it out, so I cooked it the remaining 15 minutes. My 3 yr old son had a bite, rubbed his belly and said.."That's good"..so its a winner.

Squash Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
I asked my husband what he wanted for Father's day dinner, and he said squash casserole. He's from Arkansas, I'm from New York..so needless to say, I had a "are you kidding me?" moment. Having nothing to compare the taste to, I was reluctant to make it. But then realized I could go to my favorite website and find one that would come close to what Granny used to make. After reading every single recipe,and all the reviews, this one sounded the best. Wow, is all I got to say. I have never had this before. Never even bought squash till yesterday. I thought it was totally amazing. Very very tasty. My 5 yr old even liked it. I followed the recipe exactly as written, but didn't use the whole bunch of onions..(What is a bunch anyway? is it the whole bag,and what if my bunch was bigger than one used in this recipe? would I then be using too much?..yea, I was going nutty.So I knocked it down to half, and it came out awesome. Thanks for a wonderful recipe,and for saving Father's day!

Golden Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I needed to cook my potatoes before they went bad,but wanted something simple and different. I have used cornflake coating on chicken, but never on potatos. At first the cornflakes didn't stick very well, but once I got the hang of it, they turned out really good. I didn't let anyone know they had cornflakes on them till my family ate them all(I always get that "eww" response when they know I cooked with cereal)They couldn't get enough and asked me to make them again. I had to look through 10 pages of potato recipes to find this one at the very end..I guess they do save the best for last..lol

Banana Loaf Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
I had banannas that needed to be used before the weekend was over. I was looking for a simple recipe with ingredients I had on hand, and found this. Wrote it down on paper, and made it. I made muffins instead of a loaf because I don't own a loaf pan. I doubled the recipe exactly as written, but used 8 banannas instead. I got exactly 24 muffins. Baked the pans one at a time, for 20 minutes. They came out perfect. Tasted one, and yummy. When I came back to this site just now to rate them, I realized I didn't write down the vanilla..But the good thing is, I wasn't missing anything on taste without it. I'm going to cover half with cream cheese frosting,and leave the others plain. They are good just the way they are.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
This was an awesome recipe. I only had chicken stuffing mix. I put it in my processor to make it finer, where it would cover better. I had 6 chops. I used 3 tablespoons of melted butter, but also sprayed the pan with cooking spray,cooked it at 425 for 12 minutes each side. Before flipping, I sprayed the top of the chops with the cooking spray as well. I didn't have any sticking whatsoever,and all the crumbs stayed on and completly covered the chops. I didn't have any problems with the crumbs as some of the other reviewers. If you are going to make more than the suggested 4 chops, I would go ahead and process 2 boxes of stuffing mix,and use as you go, so they all get covered evenly, and you don't run out. You can store what you don't use in a container in your fridge. They were so juicy and tasty. One more thing..my mom hated to throw anything out, so she would take the breadcrumbs and the egg mixture after breading chicken, and mix it together, roll them into little balls and fry them in a little bit of oil on the stove. We called them poor man's meatballs. I have to do that everytime I bread something, my kids call them breadballs,and they love them.

Mom's Country Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I needed a gravy for my dinner, and had about 10 minutes before my husband came home from work. I found this recipe, read some of the reviews,and had everything I needed to make it.It was extremly easy, and very good. My husband and our 2 kids loved it. I'm going to use it when I make breakfast, but put some sausage in it, bet it will be really good.

Sunday's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
I never made a homemade pie before, but I had apples that no one was eating. And of course I looked no further than this recipe, because as weird as it sounds, my name is actually Sunday. This was awesome. The pie was gone in 2 days.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
The idea of grilling this sandwich was appealing. I also base what I'm going to make on the reviews, and all the reviews were good. The sandwich was good, but the warm bananas killed it for me. I liked the way the bread and the peanut butter came together.

Easy to Remember Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
This was so simple. I didn't have butter but used margarine instead. I didn't have any problems with rolling at all as others have, and it wasn't fragile or greasy, also how others have suggested. I doubled it to make a top and bottom crust for the Sunday's apple pie recipe on this site.

Marty's Loosemeat Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
I always wanted to know what would make Roseanne open up a loosemeat sandwich shop on her show..now I know. This was good! I loved the way the beer made my house smell. I didn't have ground beef, so I used a pound of ground turkey instead. It took about 30 minutes on medium for the liquid to cook down. I put it on hamburger buns with mayo like someone suggested, wish I had the pickles though, bet that would have been good. It is kind of salty, so next time I will cut it by half. Thanks for a nice easy recipe that my kids, 3 and 6, even ate!!!

Beer Batter

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
It was easy to make, and I had all ingredients on hand. It needed some salt though, and if you didn't eat the food right away, it got soggy. Other than that it was just alright. I added extra garlic powder and pepper, but it was still bland. I think I'll stick to the one I buy in the box.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
How could anyone say this was bland? That is beyond me. I made this today, using a 3 pound bone-in pork roast. The meat fell right off the bone. Cooked it in the crockpot for 8 hours on low..wow! It almost tastes like a saurbraten gravy, the onions are awesome. I thickened the gravy with flour/water, and place the meat back in the gravy. Going to serve it with mashed potatoes. I figured after seeing 513 reviews, most of them being positive this was the one to make. Definatly going to make again. Now, I'm going to pass this one on to my brother, he loves to cook, and will appreciate this recipe.
