Wild Rice Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I really enjoyed this dish. Made it for a family get together to go with grilled pork chops and corn on the cob. I ate a whole plate of this rather than a chop! Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Ham and Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
My 10 year old niece found this recipe when she was looking for something similar to a recipe they serve at her school. (Yes, she is one of those kids that actually likes school lunch! Weird, I know!) She made this mostly by herself, with my assistance with the stove and the oven. She used cream of chicken soup, and she used torn up cheese slices, because she said that would make it more like the school lunch type. She loved it, ate 2 helpings (and she is tiny!) and insisted on taking the leftovers home with her. Thanks for a recipe that made my niece very happy!

New England Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
This was still not done after an hour in a 400 degree oven. We covered it the first 30 minutes and left it uncovered the rest. I had to scoop it out of the baking pan and finish cooking it in a frying pan on the stove. The flavor was really good, though. I thought the idea of baking it sounded good instead of all the fried versions. Thanks anyway!

Savory Skillet Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
The flavor of this was good but it was not creamy. I made it exactly as written. I would make this again but would add extra milk or maybe a couple of tablespoons of sour cream. I will definitely try it again.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, I did not make a single substitution or add anything it didn't call for. It came out very dry and crumbly. If anyone has any advice please let me know as I would like to try it again with some tips.

3BC (Best Baked Bean Casserole)

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Used this as a base recipe and really enjoyed it. I was asked to make 20 servings of baked beans for a child's party. I used 2 (55 oz each) cans and 1 (28 oz) can of Bush's Original baked beans, 4 packages of Oscar Meyer bacon crumbles (the ones in the bag near the croutons, salad dressing, etc.), 1 large onion (minced fine), 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar (which was plenty), 3 1/2 Tbsp of ketchup, 1 1/2 Tbsp of mustard, 1 3/4 Tbsp of Worcestershire and added 1 1/2 - 2 tsps. of Liquid Smoke along with 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tsp of black pepper. Cooked in the slow cooker on low for 4 1/2 hours then switched to warm to keep them hot for the party. Everyone loved them. I will definitely make these again for family gatherings!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
This was very, very good. Made for Christmas and was hoping it would turn out ok as rump roast was pretty expensive. It was worth it. Shredded easily and was awesome when dipped into the au jus. Thanks for the recipe, we will use it again and again!

Garlic-Herb Roast Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Used dried herbs as didn't have fresh. Just used less. Came out very moist and tender, could cut it with a fork. I made two loins, thinly sliced the leftover for sandwiches. I would like to try this again basted with barbecue or another sauce.

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Good base chili recipe. Only change I made was to add 1 Tbsp. of ground cumin. At first I thought there wouldn't be enough liquid but I was wrong. Cooked on high for 4 hours. Served with crushed Fritos, shredded cheddar and sour cream. Tasted even better the next day.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
We enjoyed this. Based on other reviewers I was going to add a package of Beef Stew seasoning and didn't have it so I jused a package of Lipton Onion soup mix instead. I also doubled the Worcestershire, added 1/2 tsp. each of garlic powder and onion powder and added 1 tsp. of kitchen boquet. I mixed 1 Tbsp. cornstarch and 2 Tbsp. water together and stirred into the stew before the last hour of cooking to let it thicken up. We will make this again as it the meat was very tender and tasty.

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Made this exactly as written. It was very good, the flavor was excellent. I wish it was a tad bit more tender, but that might have been the cut of chuck roast I had or my oven. I will definitely make it again. Thanks!

Sonny's Tater Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
We enjoyed this. We used about 4 loosely packed cups of fresh spinach (which we then rough chopped and didn't precook) instead of frozen and shredded mozzarella because we didn't have any swiss. Otherwise made as written. I would make it again, but with about 1/2 lb. to 1 lb. less beef and another cup of spinach.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
I needed something easy and fast to make with some chicken breasts I had defrosted. This was pretty good. I would make it again but I would boil and shred my chicken and I would add a little sour cream, cream cheese or half and half to the sauce as it was a little too dry, and I only cooked this 15 minutes. I did season my chicken quite a bit and added some onion and some mushrooms. Next time I would probably add some vegetables also. Thanks!

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I read a lot of the reviews before making this. I had to make it for a large crowd. I was pretty much able to double everything except I only used 1 large red pepper. I minced the onion, celery and pepper fine so there wouldn't be large chunks of the veggies. I added about 1 cup of finely shredded carrot for color. I only had sweet pickle relish and I only used 2 Tbsp. of that so it wouldn't be overpowering. I used 8 eggs. I used 1/2 cup of sugar in the dressing (remember I doubled the recipe) and cut the mustard to 2-3 Tbsp. I used cider vinger and added some black pepper and garlic powder. I didn't have celery seed so I had to use celery salt and cut the amount down. I made this the afternoon before my function. I added just enough dressing to moisten at that time, then added some more before going to bed. I added the rest of the dressing the next morning and it needed every bit of it. I ended up making 1 more batch of dressing but only needed about 1/4 of it to moisten at the party I took it to. I'll use the extra dressing for egg salad or potato salad. I had quite a few people ask me for the recipe but my mother-in-law just had to tell me "it was o.k. but it was too sweet". No surprise there, she critiques everything I make! I will definitely make this again but would try to cut the prep down by boiling the eggs and making the dressing ahead of time. Thanks for a great recipe!

Pork Chop Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
I made this on the spur of the moment and only had 2 pork chops in the fridge. I used the same amount of potatoes and a little less onion. I increased the Italian seasoning and black pepper to 1/8 tsp each (putting 1/4 tsp on each side of the chops) and added 1/4 tsp of garlic powder to the top of the chops. I added some broccoli and cauliflower florets and some baby carrots (precooked the carrots in microwave for a few minutes so they would be finished when everything else was). I increased the flour by about a 1/2 Tbsp due to the additional vegetables. I would definitely make this again. The pork chops were very moist and it was nice to not have a fried chop as I am on Weight Watchers. This did not make a gravy - I thought it would due to the flour, but the onions were cooked to a translucent golden and the broth and the onions on top of the pork was very good.

Heartland Vegetable Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Made as directed. I am on Weight Watchers. My family is not. Took a 13 x 9 pan to a family gathering and this was the only casserole gone. I would make this again but would cook the potatoes a little less (about 5 minutes instead of nine) and would season the potato layer before adding the frozen vegetables on top of them -- it seemed like the frozen veggies got all the flavor from the sauce and the potatoes were a little bland. I would also add some additional spices to the sauce itself. Maybe garlic powder? Thanks for the recipe as it was good to find a casserole that didn't involve a heavy cheese or cream sauce. Would make again!

Horseshoe

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Tried this recipe because I saw an episode of Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins where they made Horseshoes and they looked so good. Giving this a 4 as the sauce came out very, very thick even with following the directions - but I'm sure I did something wrong and it was my fault? I cooked our fries a little too crispy so I'll cook them a little less next time. Any tips on how to make the sauce come out a little thinner? I was out of milk so added 2 Tbsp. sour cream but that didn't help much. Thanks!
