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.

Dressing Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Just had to try this recipe as I have an aunt who does not care for extremely moist stuffing. These were great! Had a nice crispy exterior and moist interior. Best of both worlds for those people who really like the top of the stuffing (with the crust) but not the bottom (with the mush). People really seemed to enjoy them, even the teenagers. I made my biscuits and corn bread the night before, let them cool and crumbled them into a large bowl. Covered loosely with a tea towel and set on the counter to dry overnight. Then mixed everything up in the morning. This was a really easy recipe. I did increase the seasonings a bit as we like food with a little more flavor in our family. I would recommend this to anyone.

Apple Spice Dump Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2005
I really enjoyed this cake. Made it for "Friday Treats" at work and most people seemed to enjoy it. I did use 1/2 of the nutmeg and allspice and only 1 1/2 cans of apples. I cooked it before I left for work in the morning and it only took about 5 minutes to put together. You can't beat that! Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
This was good and easy. I cooked the pork and shredded, then put in fridge overnight and finished next day. Used a local BBQ sauce, was very good. Makes a LOT. Froze half for another day. Thanks for the recipe!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Excellent. Cooked with one batch of sauce, drained, shredded meat and froze. Defrosted, cooked in crockpot with second batch of sauce. Couldn't have gotten any better!

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I am 40 yrs old and have never attempted fudge before due to all the horror stories. This was SO good. I read a bunch of the reviews prior to making and it turned out perfectly! My niece and nephew were here and said it is better than Grandma's. They told their Mom and Grandma that I am the "Fudge Master". Thanks for making me look good!!

Dump Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
These were very good and easy. Needed something to make for a bake sale at the last minute and found these on the site. Thought they sounded good so gave it a try and made 2 pans. They were the first thing to sell. Ended up forgetting a plate at home and my husband and I got to sample one also. I have another pan in the oven right now. Yum!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
Read numerous reviews and took their suggestions and this was really, really good. I will actually use 16 oz. mushrooms (read reviews) next time as that was my favorite part. I could eat the sauce with just mushrooms and be content but my husband would miss the beef. Thanks for the recipe!

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!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
This is good chili! I did only use 1 jalapeno (finely minced), 1/8 cup of chili powder (instead of the 1/4 called for) and 1 tsp of hot sauce. Also 3 cans of beans instead of 4 (seemed like it would've been bean overload otherwise). I used fresh bacon as many of the other reviewers suggested. I used four slices, cooked & crumbled. I think next time I will double the bacon as it gave it a good flavor. We ate this at lunch for a family gathering. Had something else planned for dinner but they asked us to heat the leftover chili up as well. This is perfect with a small dollop of sour cream, some crushed fritos and sprinkled with cheddar cheese. My 78 yr old grandma who eats like a bird ate 3 bowls! Thanks for a delicious chili recipe!

Mexican-Style Goulash

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Came home, had the stereotypical "blah" pound of ground beef in the fridge. Wanted something different for a change. Took a minute to search the site and found this! My only changes were: added minced garlic in w/the onions and ground beef while cooking, and also added 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/3 extra cup macaroni, 1/3 extra cup water. Next time I will use "petite diced" tomatoes instead due to my finicky husband. (His only complaint.)This was so good I'll never make "regular" goulash again!! Thanks for rescuing me from another boring ground beef dinner!

Classy Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Made it at the last minute. Made as directed, other than some cheddar cheese I added in. Everyone loved it, said much better than the "regular" version. Now that I've seen the reviews I'll try it again with 1/2 cup sour cream instead.

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!

Scalloped Corn III

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Very good and easy. Doubled the recipe, baked in a 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkled some shredded cheddar on top for the last five minutes or so. Nice and moist without being the "gloppy" scalloped corn I remember from when I was a kid. I really liked the green onion as well. This will be put in my favorites.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I am a big fan of "refreshing" drinks rather than tasteless drinks, and this fit the bill. I took the tip other reviewers had to soak the lemons in hot water. My 7 yr old nephew loved this! ~ He did, however, ask what the "floaties" were. Explained that they were "pulp". He looked confused, so we told him they were where the "extra tangy" taste comes from when you make real lemonade. He said it rocked, and wanted to know if this was from "the olden days" (his phrase). Thanks!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Very good. Made as directed except covered for part of the time. I did let my sauce boil down to a thick consistency, but it still thinned out some while in the oven. Maybe because I covered the chicken for a while? Anyhow, this is very good and I will make again. I will try boneless skinless chicken breasts next time as others have suggested. Thanks!

Simple Country Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I had about 4 lbs of beef boneless chuck "country style" ribs and didn't want to use the grill. Posted a recipe request on the site and at the suggestion of another member (for some reason I can't locate her recommendation now....maybe they delete them after a period??) I made a variation of this recipe using her directions. I boiled them for about 3 1/2 hrs or so on stovetop. (Used Kraft BBQ sauce for the boiling step.) Then pitched boiling liquid, onions, etc. Put ribs in a 13x9 foil-lined pan and poured on Sweet Baby Ray's sauce. Then baked at 350 for 30 mins covered and about 30 mins uncovered. I did baste a few times during the oven time. Fork-tender and delicious with a nice carmelization of the sauce. Thanks!

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Made this for Thanksgiving as I thought it was something my nieces and nephews (ages 2 - 7) would enjoy. Everyone, including the kids, really liked it. I used a combination of McIntosh & Granny Smith. I used 1/2 apple juice and 1/2 1% milk for the liquid. I left out the nuts and raisins as I was mainly setting out to please the kids. I also added cinnamon to the flour mixture and sprinkled the apples with brown sugar once they were in the baking dish. I stirred a couple times during baking to ensure even baking. This was really good and I will be making it often. It also went together quickly. Thanks!
