Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
My family has been making sweet potatoes this way for years. We use brown sugar and omit the spices. I pre-cook them in microwave for a few minutes then slice and simmer them for a few hours in a pressure cooker. Fabulous. Absolutely no spices or marshmallows.

Creamy Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2014
This was excellent. I tripled the potatoes to 9 cups, ( love leftovers) diced small, one cup celery and onion, 3 cups stock, 4 tsp flour.. after 2 hours I added 2.5 cups milk. After another 2 hours I blended half the soup because I like some chunks. I then added 3/4 package of cream cheese. After putting soup in bowls I added a little more milk to each so as not too thick.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
Excellent. Two minor changes: I used 2.5 cups sugar ( 1.5 white and 1 cup light brown. I cooked in two large loaf pans instead of 3 smaller. Add an extra 10-15 minutes if doing two pans. Made 4 loaves the past two days.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
Excellent. Just took them out of the oven. The only change I made were to make 12 regular muffins and therefore, reduced the temp to 350. When using fruit like blueberries, mix them with a little flour before adding to your mix to keep them from sinking. I used 1/2 tlb topping for each and will freeze the leftovers.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
asbate How is it Kate's fault YOU forgot to triple the sauce? The recipe deserves 5 stars on it's merit, not because you forgot to add something. I and my family loved it and will be making again.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
So good! Made this for my Dad's 84th birthday. My first time making Banana Cream Pie and Pudding. Only thing I changed was using Corn Starch instead of Flour. I used a Keeblers 9" graham cracker pie crust and brushed it all over w/ egg white and baked @375 for 5 min. I lightly brushed the crust with bourbon. I found the key to the pudding is patience. Keep stirring till it comes together ( consistency of frosting) almost 10 minutes. I did use whole milk but not sure that matters. I was afraid I might scramble the eggs when adding a little of the mixture to the beaten eggs then quickly added all the eggs into the mixture stirring constantly for 1-2 min more. Then you have to quickly slice and place your bananas in the shell before the pudding gets a skin. I crammed in 4 med. bananas added the pudding and baked for 5 more minutes to set up. I refrigerated for a few hours and topped with Bourbon Whipped Cream. Served this with Banana Ice Cream (made from blending 2 softened haagen dazs pints and 2 bananas..freeze for a few hours).

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Oh my. I'm now a big fan of Michigan. This was incredible. I had a 10lb Turkey Breast, and used butter and salt w/the warm water and bouillon. 4 cups of stock would be good as well. That was it. Reduced the cooking time a little. I cannot believe how moist this was. Usually turkey, especially just breasts, are dry. No more brining for me. I will use this recipe for Thanksgiving as well. Thanks.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
This was excellent. It might not be authentic with flour tortillas but it's still very good which is what counts. I also used a few cloves of sliced garlic instead of garlic powder. Since I needed to serve 8 I used 2 cans of cream of chicken ( instead of mushroom) soup and upped the chicken to 2 cups and the cheddar also to two cups. I used a large sheet pan.

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
This was very good. I needed more than 1/3 cup parmesan cheese. I also used 1 ten ounce of box of spinach and added about 3/4 cup milk. I also added a little bit of nutmeg with the spinach a la Rachael Ray. You also definitely need a bigger pan about 9x13.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Excellent. I used the two pork tenderloins from Costco. I used 1/2 an envelope of the onion soup mix and did not add any other salt. I cooked for one hour on high then 3 on low. Next time I will just cook on low for 4 hours. I served with mashed potatoes and peas. This was really good and will definitely be used often. Thanks.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
This was very good. The only changes I made was to add more chicken, I figure 1 breast per person, added some frozen peas towards the end and like another reviewer said I added 2 small cans of biscuits 2 hours before meal was done.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This was excellent. I used a combo of lean beef and pork otherwise I followed exactly. I didn't saute the onions beforehand as I like a little crunch to them. Might cook a little longer than 1 hour next time.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Fantastic. I used 4 breasts ( for leftovers) and pounded them pretty thin. I also used 1.5 cups chicken broth for the extra chicken and 2 cloves of garlic. I cut the chicken into around 1 inch pieces. I cooked them in 2 batches. I sliced the half lemon very thin. After the butter was mixed in I added the chicken back to the pan to reheat as I didn't use the oven to keep warm. I served this with Vermicelli. I will definitely make again. Thanks!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Second time I'm making this recipe. It's excellent. I always double the recipe and use Jamie Oliver's Bubble & Squeak for leftovers. Corned Beef is eaten by Irish Americans so shame on those who left 1 star. FYI: According to the History Channel, Irish immigrants who came to the United States in the “mid-to-late 19th century” started using brisket instead of bacon when making the dish. “Irish immigrants living on New York City’s Lower East Side substituted corned beef for their traditional dish of Irish bacon to save money. They learned about the cheaper alternative from their Jewish neighbors.”

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
It's was very good, not great, but good. I did add some vanilla but it still need something else. I also had to add about 15 minutes more cooking time. I will experiment next time with spices.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Awesome. I got 48 after using a small ice cream scoop. I didn't have enough PB Cups so I used M&M's and small chunks of Snickers Bars. You could add almost any candy. Great tip about freezing the PB Cups. Worked perfectly.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Excellent. I used 1lb dark ground turkey and 1lb of ground chicken. I also added lots of garlic, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce. I used cheddar as that it what I had on hand. I didn't use as much as was called for in the recipe. I topped it off with Maple Chipotle Grille Sauce from Stonewall Kitchens. Leftovers were excellent.
