Old-Fashioned Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I made these for Christmas dinner to serve with a honey ham. They were delicious! I made a few changes based on others' feedback. I used 2 cups medium chedder cheese rather than American Cheese. I added 1 t garlic powder and 1 t onion powder to the cheese sauce. I used baker potatoes which I peeled and cut into very thin slices. Even though they were sliced thin, it took about 1 1/2 hours to bake. I am glad others had suggested the longer cooking time. I decided it would be easier to keep the potatoes warm if they cooked sooner than to have the rest of dinner wait for the potatoes to finish. As I said they were very creamy and very good.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This was very good! I made it for Christmas Day and everyone loved it. I followed a couple of the suggested changes. I used granny smith apples. I shook the apple slices in the 1 cup sugar, cinnamon (which I increased to 1/2 Tablespoon), 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (which I added to the recipe) and flour mixture. I softened the butter and then mixed it with the topping in my Kitchen Aid mixer. I doubled the topping as many suggested BUT I found it was too much. I only used half. I planned to use apple juice in place of the water but I forgot to add it. I am glad I forgot. It was perfect. We ate it warm with quality vanilla ice cream.

Michelle's Blonde Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
This was a really good chicken chili. My family loved it! I always read reviews and make a few changes based on what I read. Here is what I did: I made this in the crock pot so I used whole chicken breasts. They were easy to shred at the end which gave the chicken the texture I wanted. I also added more garlic, cumin and oregano. I find that any dish with beans often needs more spice when it cookes so long. I added a can of Rotel Tomatos (spiced up chopped tomatoes) to it as well. Before adding the beans, I drained them and rinsed them. I always drain and rinse canned beans before using them. I served this with white rice (my husband and son like chili on rice) and grated cheddar cheese.

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
This was so good!! Even my teenage son loved it (I know he really liked it when he finished the leftovers the next day.) I made a couple of changes based on some ot the reviews. I added twice as much chili powder to it and I also put in about 1/2t of red pepper flakes. This added a little kick but did not make it too spicy. I also put in 2t of onion powder to kick up the onion flavor a bit. With that many beans the spices can quickly get "sucked up". I followed the suggestion of cooking it for 6 hours on the stove with a cover. I am glad I did. After about 5 hours. I took out the ham hocks and threw them away (I don't like the fatty meat on them). I then added about 1 1/2 cups of leaner chopped ham. This was great and I will make it again.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
This was just OK. I used the suggested 1 cup of flour but I doubled the spices that were mixed in. It still could have used more spice - in my opinion. I could have lived with the amount of spices but what I didn't like about it was that it was toooo sweet. I omited the honey and added nothing sweet, but it was still too sweet. Maybe a different teriyaki sauce would be better?? I doubt I will make this again.

Cube Steak Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
Very good! I did change one thing. I used fancy spaghetti sauce that was premade to put over the meat instead of mixing up the tomato sauce and spices. Easier and very good.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
This was very good. I made my own italian dressing mix (Found at this site). That allowed me to reduce the amount of salt based on other members' feedback. I am glad I did, because it was still a little salty.UPDATE - - I made this again using packaged Italian Dressing. I doubled all the spices except the dressing and left out the salt. I used 3 cups H2O and added a large beef bouilion cube. I also added 1/4 c pepperoncini juice. YUM!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
Great soup! After reading a number of reviews, I did make a few changes. I used beef broth rather than chicken. I also added a large veg. bullion cube to the water which I increased to 2 1/2 cups. Instead of 4 cups tomato sauce I used 2 cans chopped and 1 can sauce. I also added 4 small white potatoes cut into cubes and 1 lb lean ground beef browned (My Hubby isn't wild about soup with no meat). I used about 1 C frozen green beans rather than canned and left out the wine because I didn't have any on hand. Finally I kicked up the spice a bit. I added twice as much Basil (fresh), 1 T italian seasoning, 4 cloves worth of garlic (minced fresh in a jar), salt, pepper, and a couple of shakes of dried hot peppers just to give it a little kick. I would say this is the best ministroni soup I have ever made. It is great because you can easily make changes to fit your own tastes.

Crusty Potato Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
This bread was the BEST!! My bread machine did great mixing it. I followed the suggestion of "spooning" the flour into the cup rather than scooping and I added 1/4 cup more water. I did make a couple of additional changes. I used 3/4 cup instant mashed potatoes and reduced the bread flour to 3 cups. I wanted a bit more potato flavor. I also added a teaspoon of minced garlic and 2 teaspoons of taragon. I served this with minestrone soup on a cold snowy day! Great light loaf of yummy bread!!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
Good Stuff! I put bacon on the top when I cooked it just to keep in moist! I also used "spicy" steak sauce by A1. I didn't use it on purpose just grabbed the wrong one. Worked out fine.

Southwestern Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This was great and my family LOVED it! I did make a few of the suggested changes. I cut down on the number of corn tortillas to about 10/12 and I put a VERY thin layer of the sauce under the tortillas to keep them moist. I only used the Cream of Mushroom Soup and left out the Cream of Chicken. I used light sour cream. I added a can of Ro-tel (spelling?) tomatoes with chilis, I used more cheese (1/2 of which was Pepper Jack and 1/2 Chedder) and I added a small can of HOT chilis to the mix. I also increased the turkey to about 2 cups. I layered sauce, tortillas, turkey cheese, sauce tortillas, turkey and cheese. WE LOVED THIS!! Great EASY meal and what a great way to use up leftover turkey!

Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
These were so good! I didn't have red potatoes so I used yellow instead. The only thing I would do differently is put the onions on the top. When I mixed them with the potatoes, they seemed to wind up at the bottom of the pan rather than on the potatoes.

Italian Leg of Lamb

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This was the first time I cooked a Leg of Lamb so I don't know a lot about Lamb. My husband has had lamb a lot and he gave the recipe 4 stars. I thought it was very good :)
