Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2001
My husband would give this recipe 10 stars if he could. He requested this two days in a row. I too enjoyed this very much, though my two girls...well you know how kids and veggies can be! I did make some changes to the seasoning portion since like the 1st reviewer said, there is quite a bit of salt called for. I just added 1 1/2 teaspoon of seasoning salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and added chopped fresh garlic (two cloves) along with the onion/mushroom mixture. This is a great change from plain ordinary vegetables, and I will be making this again and again.

Wave Your Flag Cake

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
My workplace had a Memorial Day lunch yesterday and we all contributed a dish...this was what I chose to make and bring. I did use an extra deep 9x13 pan which required more jello. (I used an additional 4 serving sized box). I used sugar free jello, and extra creamy Cool Whip. I GOT RAVE REVIEWS and more than one request for the recipe!

Macaroni and Cheese IV

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
My daughter and husband really liked this dish. Like the others before me, I too made some modifications since I thought 2 boxes of pasta would be way too much. I used one box of tri-colored rotini, a bag of Soy crumbles (made it vegetarian!), one 16 oz bag of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, a 14oz can of diced Fire Roasted tomatoes, diced onion and green pepper, shredded zucchini, carrot, and mushroom, and half of a 16 oz bottle of regular V-8. My husband liked it so much he wants it again this week, but with 'real' meat in it this time! :)

Absolutely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2001
These cookies are outstanding! The first time I made it, I made it as it...great! The next time, I used a mix of milk chocolate and peanut butter chips, (1 1/2 cups), and added chopped pecans (1/2 cup), and used 1/4 cup butter/ 3/4 cup shortening.....EVEN BETTER! I just use the regular vanilla since I wasn't sure what Mexican Vanilla was. This is now my NEW official chocolate chip cookie recipe!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
I have made this many times, and it's absolutely delicious! I don't add as much water though, maybe half a cup, then I cover the meat with the soupy mixture, set the timer and walk away! My daughter, who is not a big beef fan, LOVES this dish!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2001
Really tasty! My husband says this is now one of his favorite things to eat. I too was a little wary of the sour cream, but this dish was wonderful. Leftovers (there was very little) tasted even better the next day.

Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
This seemed more like a bar cookie rather than a 'brownie', but it doesn't matter...this tasted great! I used butter flavored shortening, mini chocolate chips and chopped pecans (just used what I had in the house). I also baked it a little differently; 20 min at 350, the middle was still soft so I lowered the temperature to 325 and baked it for another 8 minutes so I would not have burned edges. This worked PERFECTLY-center baked and edges still soft. This recipe really can take on different flavors depending on the add ins.

Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
This is great pumpkin bread! I was looking for recipes that had no dairy or egg in it and this one came up...I too have done what the previous reviewer mentioned and tried this with the Splenda/sugar baking mix and it was excellent as well.

Washboard Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Excellent cookies. I have tried this twice using some of the suggestions others have commented on. First batch, since I had light brown sugar instead of dark brown, I added a little molasses (about 1 TBSP) and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Next batch I added the cinnamon, added 1/4 tsp almond extract with the vanilla, but forgot the molasses. With both batches, I added honey roasted chopped pecans. I'd have to say the way I did it originally was better. The almond extract covered up the subtleness of the cinnamon. For the next batch I try (definitely soon!), I might add some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips along with the pecans.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
This recipe turned out excellent. I couldn't believe how easy this was..only took maybe 5 minutes longer than opening a boxed brownie mix! The only change I made was to use butter flavored shortening instead of butter (I didn't have enough butter). Personally I think doubling the walnuts would be better, at least what little I got to eat...my daughter and mostly my husband wolfed it down! My husband even joked don't make it again because he wants to eat the whole pan in one sitting! Definitely going to try it again with double walnuts and maybe I will also try pecans.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2002
This bread is outstanding. I've made it a few times now, and it has great taste and texture, not bland or heavy. I add approximately 1/4 cup extra honey. The last time I made it, I added 1/4 cup wheat germ, which turned out great too. Next time I make this, I am going to try replacing all the honey with maple syrup, to make Maple Wheat Bread! I think also some other additions such as oats, other flours such as rye or rice, and seeds such as sunflower, pumpkin, or sesame might be good to try too.

Peppery Onion Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This was excellent..probably one of the better breads. I used milk instead of water/dry milk powder (didn't have the powder), but followed everything else to the letter, and used my bread machine. Baked up wonderfully, light brown, with a super soft interior. Will definitely make this again.

Basic Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2001
This was really good! My youngest daughter even said "it smells just like the jarred stuff". The whole family liked it. I substituted 1 1/2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese instead of the prepared cheese sauce and also added an extra clove of garlic (garlic lovers here). The only complaint? There wasn't more! I will definitely make this again but will double or triple the recipe.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Made this tonight and it's already gone! This turned out great. I did make a couple of changes: doubled the sugar(and used brown because I couldn't find the white sugar), and used evaporated milk/vinegar since I didn't have buttermilk OR regular milk. Everyone liked this more than the dinner!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
Ever since I saved this recipe, I have not bought prepackaged taco seasoning. This is the best. I don't add any crushed red pepper flakes because my daughter doesn't like things spicy, but the chili powder and the cumin really give anything you add this to a mexican flavor. I use this in everything that asks for a package of taco seasoning, and I usually add the entire recipe.

Chicken Salad Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2001
My husband raved about this recipe, and feels that this was one of the best recipes I've tried from this site. My girls also loved it...youngest daughter starting digging just the chicken part out. I served this with pita bread instead of tortillas (what I had on hand). Great recipe.

Cranberry Sauce II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
WOW..I had no idea how easy this was! My husband has given up things with High Fructose Corn Syrup in them and the cranberry sauce in a can that we normally got has that in it, so I thought I'd try making it myself, using this recipe. This was extremely tasty...even my two daughters, who are not a big fan of cranberry sauce in general, thought this tasted pretty good and actually ate some!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
WOW! This was definitely a hit, even with my youngest daughter who is not a big fan of mexican type foods. I doubled this recipe, using diced green chilis instead of the jalepenos. I also took about 1/4 of the black beans and pureed them in my mini-food processor along with some chili powder and cumin, and the salt called for in this recipe, and added them to the pan at the same time as the cream cheese. I served these with a spanish rice and a smoky chipotle type fresh salsa....YUM YUM! This will definitely be made again, and soon!

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
I made this for the first time last weekend, using bakery bagels instead of the bread called for, and used Original Flavor Mrs. Dash in the mayo. Also, we used sliced mozzerella flavored soy cheese. I toasted the bottoms first, then layered the mayo, tomato, and soy cheese (my husband's had some sliced avocado too), broiled this for approximately 5 mins. until the cheese browned, then put the tops (also toasted) after they came out. I enjoyed it, but my husband ABSOLUTELY RAVED about this! In fact, we are having this again tonight and will be adding some fresh basil this time!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2002
This will now be the only pumpkin pie recipe I will use. The filling was a lot thicker than some of the other recipes I've tried, which made it much easier to get it in the oven without making a mess. And it tasted great too.
