Creamy German Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
Great recipe! I made it as written though I did add a shredded carrot and one bunch of green onions finely sliced. The balance of flavors in the dressing is perfect. I measured every thing into a a jar, shook it up, then poured over the cabbage. So easy! This one goes in the recipe box for future use. Thanks for sharing.

Banana Pudding II

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2014
This pudding turned out really good. The recipe was easy to follow and and quick. It may have been smoother if I had used just egg yolks but I went ahead and used whole eggs. I added double the vanilla as I like a good vanilla favor. Also, turned out the box of vanilla wafers I evidently had for far too long, was rancid. Ugh. So, I used ginger snaps instead which added a nice flavor. Think it would help to know that this pudding fits nicely into a 1.5 quart bowl and it really makes more like 6-8 generous servings.

Salisbury Steak with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
My family loves Salisbury steak and this is a great recipe. The only change I really made was to add some garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce to the patties and Worcestershire sauce with the beef broth. Also, I sliced up the onions first and started them and the mushrooms sauteeing in a little olive oil while I mixed up the ground beef mixture and made the patties. Then I removed the onions and mushrooms to a plate while browning the patties. Delicious served with mashed potatoes.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
A co-worker made these and after finding out how easy these tasty morsels were, I had to give them a try myself. 3 words or advice: Add cinnamon chips! (if you can find them). I also used pumpkin pie spice mix instead of the individual spices and sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top for a little cruch.

Vasilopita

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
My daughter and friends chose Greece for a "Multicutural Winter Holiday" presentation at school. They focused on St. Basil's Day and baked this cake to be part of their display. We baked it in a 10" round springform pan. It turned out great and looked so pretty with the almonds and sesame seeds on top. They got many compliments on the cake. Some folks compared it to a shortbread type cake.

Salmon Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I thought this quiche was excellent. The flavor and texture of the salmon goes well with the creamy egg/milk mixture. I used some leftover baked salmon instead of canned and chopped green onions. Also, because I didn't have cheddar cheese, I used a combination of cream cheese, colby/jack, mozzarella and parmeson. So definitely try other cheeses if that is all you have. I'd bet this is more mixture than a standard frozen 9" crust will hold. I used Pillsbury rolled pie crust in my 9" pie pan and it was a perfect fit. Baked for at least 40 minutes.

Cookie Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
I found this recipe looking for something to use up some buttermilk. It is really good. To be honest, I was skeptical about the need for the fudge stripe cookies until I tasted it with and without the cookies. Definitely better with the cookie cruncha and that little bit of chocolate. I only had one large box of pudding, 5.1 ounces, so slightly less than the 6.8 ounces two small boxes would make. I kept the milk the same and it seemed to be fine. Also, I used crushed pineapple because that is what I had but I think the pineapple chunks would provide a better contrast in textures. I would make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing it.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
To keep pots and pans to a minimum, I first boiled my chicken breasts with a bit of chicken base added to water. I reserved about 2 cups of the chicken broth to use later, added more water and boiled the spaghetti in the same pot of water. After draining the pasta, I prepared the sauce in that same pot. I only needed half the recipe so I used 1 can cream of mushroom soup, my reserved chicken broth and about 1/2 cup sour lite sour cream. I think the sour cream adds more flavor and helps make it creamier. Also, boiling the spaghetti in a broth adds more flavor. I felt like this called for a cracker crumb topping so I added that and used parmesan cheese and Italiam cheese blend for the topping. YUM! Everyone enjoyed this.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
My whole family enjoyed this chicken. The sauce tasted great with the steamed rice served with the chicken. The leftovers were great in a chicken fried rice a couple days later.

Dirt Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This was really good. I made this for my Daisy Girl Scouts to celebrate Earth Day. (We also drank bug juice). I fed them a whole big story on how I dug the dirt up special for them that morning. After that I gave each girl her own cup of dirt to their surprised looks. However, I disagree with another reviewer who said that it is best to serve in a clear glass bowl. It is really only the cookie crumbs on top that look like dirt. Seeing through the clear cups the girls quickly realized it was pudding. Where as if it was in a flower pot or even a solid cup or bowl one only sees the dirt cookie crumbs with worms on top.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
I have reviewed this recipe before and want to say again how delicious it really is. This time I first boiled a meaty ham bone in the water which added more depth of flavor. I poured the water into another container so I could sautee the onions and celery in butter then added the water, potatoes and ham back to the pot with the celery and onions. Delicious!

Sugared Campfire Donuts

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
Our girl scout troop makes these a little differently. We cook the biscuits in butter on top of the camp stove. Melt the butter first, add the biscuits to cover most of the pan. We don't bother cutting and rolling into a ball. Be careful to keep flame low or you'll end up with burned biscuits quickly. Add pats of butter on top as needed as biscuits cook; flip one time as you cook. Roll the hot, buttery biscuits in the cinnamon sugar. Delicious! The girls hover to make sure the get them hot and fresh! If you do cook the biscuits on a stick over fire, I learned to sort of stretch the biscuit out and wrap it around the stick. You'll end up with a long twisted breadstick shape that will cook more evenly over the camp fire.

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I was searching for some easy candy recipes to use with my girl scouts when I found this. Decided to give it a test run. I've made caramel popcorn before but this is the absolute best because it is easy to prepare, tastes great and the clean up is a breeze! My two daughters give it two thumbs up. I prepared just as directed except used 7 TBSP real butter and about 1/2 the salt. Thanks for posting this recipe. We will be having caramel popcorn more often now.
