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!

Hoagie Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2004
This was good stuff! Made it for "Friday Treats" at work. Used a food processor to cut everything fairly fine. Used packaged shredded lettuce. Added 1 1/2 T balsamic vinegar. Served it with sliced french bread. It went over better than the dessert I made. Makes a LOT. 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!

My Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
This was a good basic chili recipe for a variety of tastes. I added an extra can of beans (1 drained, 1 not), 3 cans of Rotel tomatoes w/chiles (drained - used these in place of the stewed tomatoes), an extra 1/2 lb of ground beef, 1 large green pepper, an additional 8 oz of tomato sauce, 1 tsp of cumin powder, increased the chili powder to 2 1/2 T, and omitted the oregano. I cooked this in the crockpot for an hour on high then turned it down to low for about 5 hours. Served it with crushed Fritos chips, sour cream and shredded cheese. It was delicious! We had also had chicken & rice soup that night (family function) and this one was gone right away! Thanks for a great recipe!

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!

Carrot Cake Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
These are outstanding! I followed the recipe (ingredient-wise) exactly. I made these with the suggested cooking time the first time and they were way too moist, but very flavorful. I made them again 5 days later and increased the cooking time by 15 minutes and they were PERFECT. Man, these are good. Thanks!

Gramma Bertha's Banana Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
This was a very easy,inexpensive, good and moist cake recipe that I will be making frequently. It has a mild flavor that the children at my family reunion especially enjoyed, and it was easy for them to eat because I did not frost the cake. I will add this to my favorites. Thanks!

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!

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Very good. Used 1 pkg. of Lipton Beefy Onion dry soup mix in place of the onions and other seasonings specified in the meat loaf mixture. Added a touch of liquid smoke to the topping ingredients. Used 93% lean ground beef, had no problems with greasiness. Will make again!

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!!

Broccoli Rice Side Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
This was super easy! Made this for niece who thinks broccoli rice should be in a food group of its own!! We used 3 cheese slices because she doesn't like cheese spread or velveeta and it worked out great. I did need to add a little extra milk. I made it as written first then added a little extra just to suit our tastes. I will make this again!

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.

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.

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!

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!

Skillet Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Very good. Went together quickly as I already had a pound of browned ground beef in the fridge. (Just had to heat up a few minutes in the microwave, put it in the skillet and proceed with the recipe.) Made as specified except left dehydrated onion out as made it for my 6 yr old niece and myself. She loved it! Asked me to make it again the next time she comes over. My husband will get the leftovers for work and I'm sure he'll enjoy it too. Thanks for this recipe, I really enjoyed it.

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!
