Savory Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Yea! I finally made a decent gravy! I'm the world's worst when it comes to any kind of gravy. This was easy, was not time consuming and it tasted really good!

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
A very good and easy chicken. If you're not fond of soy sauce or garlic you may not like this very much. Chicken was moist and tender.

Cherry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
An ever so easy and tasty little cheesecake! I saved this recipe out of a magazine years ago and it's been a favorite since. It was called a 'Cheery Cherry Cheese Pie'. You must let the cream cheese completely soften before mixing with the 'milk'. I'm not understanding why other reviews have said the cheese part hasn't set. I can only assume it's because they're not sticking with the recipe. After making this recipe at least 3-4 times a year for the past 20+ years I have never had a problem. It's always set after about 4 hours to add the cherries. Another thought: 12 servings is a little extreme unless you only want a taste.

Wake-Up Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
Very good breakfast casserole. As other reviewers suggested I pre-baked the hash browns for 10 minutes. I didn't have any problem with them being soggy. And, instead of 7 eggs I used 9.

Cheddar Biscuit Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Very easy to put together. I had to use the substitute for self-rising flour. The taste was quite good but for some reason they were quite crunchy. Not at all what I was expecting and I'm not sure why they were. I'll try them again some time.

Ziti Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
We really enjoyed this. I used all the same ingredients but doubled some of them like the ground beef and tomato sauce. I used a medium green pepper and a 15 oz container ricotta. Now we had some leftovers for the next evening. They reheated great in the nuker and tasted delicious! Thanks Dorothea! Will make again.

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
I've been making something similar to this for years. Never thought of putting radishes on it, that was great! Too much of a hurry to grate carrots or chop a red pepper so didn't add those. Was still good and enjoyed by all!

Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Everyone loved these cookies! Nice and soft, not crunchy. Didn't change anything except I made Pumpkin Pie Spice II from this site and used that. Cookies don't spread much at all so you can get quite a few on your cookie sheet. A great fall cookie!

Horseshoe

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Each of us having only one 'sandwich' each was totally filling! Two is too much for one person. These were good, though. The sauce, I thought, was very light and fluffy. Was very good.

1-Dish Pepperoni Cheese Pizza Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
Wow, I truly impressed myself! Yeast and I are NOT good friends. This was soooo easy and it turned out very good. We're not big fans of thick crust on pizza, but that's only our opinion. Will definitely do this one again. The only change I made was to add mushrooms. Thanks for the post!!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
We don't care for cottage cheese so I subbed non-fat ricotta and I also used my own sauce. After reading reviews and seeing quite a few of them said it burnt I decided to let it cook for only 6 hours. This is the FIRST time my crockpot has burnt anything! Just the bottom turned slightly black. Will adjust the cooking time next time to no more than 5 hours. A lot of times we have a really busy schedule and cooking a traditional meal is sometimes hard. Slow cooking is a big help for us. Will make this again but with a few changes.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
This was delicious!! I lowered the sugar to 1/2 cup per other reviews. Also, reading reviews I was torn into only using 1 package of cream cheese versus the 2 that it called for. So I split the difference and used 1-1/2 pkgs. I don't think there's any problem at all in using the 2. I also spread some raspberry preserves on it. Yum!! Be sure to pinch/seal all the seams together after putting the top on. Any slight cracks and the filling will ooze out. AND the prep time is much more than 10 minutes. Will make this again. Thanks Natalie!

Crab and Pea Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This was soooo good! And it's so easy and quick to put together. I didn't change a thing. When my hubby got home he found this bowl in the fridge and started to devour it! Well, it ruined his dinner but he sure did like this salad!

Slow Cooker Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
I made this before and it didn't seem too bad. Made it again and it just wasn't the same as it seemed to be. Didn't change anything. It does taste better the next day. Sour cream helps it immensely.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
Very good macaroni salad! I didn't have the dill pickle relish so I had to sub with sweet. Next time I'll cut the sugar down a bit and the mayo, too. A little too saucy, but still very good!!!
