Butter Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
A very quick and easy way to make beef tips. If yours turned out burned it's because you didn't stir it. I stirred mine about every hour and it came out evenly done with no burned or hard areas on the beef. Just because it's in a crock pot doesn't mean you don't have to keep an eye on it and stir as needed. Also, it doesn't need hot sauce unless you want to camouflage the taste of the beef. If you like a spicy beef dish, this isn't the one for you. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding about 1/2 stick more butter. I used unsalted butter since the dry onion soup mix is generally a little salty. My beef was fork tender and had a wonderful taste. I served it over butter noodles and my family loved it. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This is how some of us southerners fry chicken. I've seen my grandmothers and my mom prepare it this way many times and it is always good. I cannot imagine chili powder being added or boiling your chicken before frying. If you fry this on your stove top keep the heat at a medium setting or the outside of the chicken will burn before it is done on the inside. I generally use an electric skillet with the lid on and then remove the lid about 5 mins. before taking it out. It makes the chicken crispier but helps it to stay juicy. I do add some salt, pepper, and paprika to my flour. To really make this taste great fry it in some Crisco or lard in a cast iron skillet. I like to keep things light however and use the vegetable oil. I also fry my chicken tenders this way and then dip them in honey mustard sauce.

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Excellent, easy recipe. I did not cook my macaroni before placing it in my slow cooker and it did great even though I had my doubts. I dislike it when people change a recipe completely and then rate it. I made this recipe exactly as written and I'm very happy with the results.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
Wonderful recipe! I did use all butter instead of the shortening simply because I don't like shortening. However, I think either way would be fine. This frosting is easy to make and has a wonderful old fashioned taste. I also used it to decorate the cake with a decorating bag and tip and it worked great. This will definitely be my go-to recipe for butter cream frosting.

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
My grandmother made her butter this way. She had 10 children so there were always plenty of people around to shake the jar. It tastes great and is fun for the kids to make. They always look amazed when the butter starts forming after shaking the jar or container. You can use a Kitchen Aid Mixer but where's the fun in that?

Juicy Steak

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I love this recipe and in fact have been using it for years. Except, I do thaw my meat. I don't think it would hurt to cook it frozen it's just my habit to thaw it first. With this recipe you get the flavor of the steak and not of a sauce or strong marinade. Even though it's an old comment I would like to say you cannot get sick from cooking a frozen steak. In fact I have to wonder where on earth the commenter got that idea. When you cook this steak use real, unsalted butter for the best results. Margarine just won't give you the same results. I also use the meat tenderizer after the steak is thawed and it works just fine that way. This is a good recipe.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I usually don't review recipes but these pork chops were wonderful! I didn't change a thing except to leave the soup part off. I don't care for gravy. Other than that this recipe was perfect. If you don't put the gravy/soup on it takes about 45 minutes to bake at 450 degrees after you have browned them for 5 minutes on both sides. As I said these pork chops were perfect.
