Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
I use 3-4 oz of cream cheese and 2 tbsp of mayo instead of just mayo. Doesn't get runny and the taste/texture is better.

Nana's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
Cook the macaroni noodles as directed. Heat milk, add cheese and mix til melted. Then cool about 1/2 cup mixture and add to eggs. This prevents curdling. Return egg mixture to milk/cheese and mix well with macaroni, then place in prepared dish to bake.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Bacon and cheese are a nice addition. Instead of 1/2 cup of mayo, I use 2-3 TBSP Hellman's real mayo and 3 oz pkg of softened cream cheese, the flavor is great, my family loves it.

Been making this one for 50 yrs and ALWAYS add vanilla. Tip: add 1 extra Tsp to each recipe for baking. One can also substitute flavored creamer for the milk. My family loves these.

Parmesan Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Absolutely excellent soup, I served it at luncheon and received rave reviews and requests for recipe. I did alter the ingredients a bit. I used 6 small white potatoes, peeled and diced then boiled. 3 cans Swanson chicken broth, 1 qt half & Half. Sauteed 2 large bunches chopped green onions in butter, then made a roux with the flour mixed with seasonings, then added broth, potatoes and simmered for 20 minutes, then added half & half.

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Using 1 large rutabaga, peel, cut into chunks and boil in water in large pan for 20 minutes, cool. Using 2 large apples, peel, chop and cook in small pot with 2 TBSP sugar. Place rutabaga and apples in casserole dish, sprinkle 4 TBSP honey over top and dot with butter. Bake uncovered in 350 oven for about 35 minutes. A good way to use up leftover rutabaga, mash with cooked apples, butter and honey, warm and serve.

Rutabaga Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I always add diced apple with a little sugar to rutabaga before mashing. It adds a great flavor even for those who dislike "beggies".

Broiled Herb Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
This recipe is similar to one I've been using for over 40 years. Instead of mixing butter and herbs and then broiling the chicken. I melt the butter, add herbs, then marinate the chicken for a few hours, then place on foil-lined pan and bake at 375 degrees for 45 min to 1 hr. Absolutely great for a crowd, just increase chicken, etc. to fit the number of diners.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Recipe is similar to one I've been making for 50 years. I add one squeezed fresh lemon to the apples to keep them from turning brown. Then I add spices/sugar and sprinkle over apples then continue.

Root Beer Float Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
I used a DH white cake mix, added Jello instant vanilla pudding and followed the recipe. For the glaze I used "Back to Basics snow cone root beer flavoring" to the XXXX sugar and it really adds zing.
