Hash Brown Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2000
This is one of my potluck recipes...always a big hit. I use cornflakes to top it instead of crackers

Hershey's ® Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2001
This is the first thing that ever made my chocaholic husband say "too much chocolate!" Try it on your chocaholic and see for your self! Definatly a comfort food. Because it uses mostly dry ingredients it is easy to transport the ingredients and bake in other places. I'm still trying different ways to make this out camping - I can't quite figure out how to bake it over a wood fire. The chocolate flavor comes from the taste of cocoa - and the brand does make a difference - which is different from the chocolate taste in chips or bars. In reading other reviews, I think that some people were expecting a "cake" - Instead of thinking of this as a cake recipe - think of it as a dessert recipe. It has a cake-like top layer and a pudding-like bottom layer.

Brown Sugar Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2002
After reading the other reviews, I paid close attention to what I did as I made this pie. I did not measure with great accuracy - just threw everything in a saucpan before I started to mix it all up. I let it cook for about a minute after it started to boil, and then baked it per the directions. If did not spill over, or burn. It came out of the oven hot and bubbling, and semi-firm. It set as it cooled...and was fantastic!!! Incredibly rich and sweet.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2002
Ok..so I have had every person I know try at one time or another to teach me how to fix biscuits. All have failed miserably, as has every "fool-proof" recipe. I am a good cook in other areas...just not biscuits. I have not given up though, and was looking at the reviews for these biscuits. After reading a couple (especially the beer guy) I figure this recipe is worth one more completly incompetent attempt. WRONG!!!! - I got BISCUITS!!! Not birdfood (too crumbly) or sports equipment (the ever popular hockey pucks) I got real, honest-to-god BISCUITS!!! Of course they were not as fluffy as everyone says...but I have a feeling that next time - after I have replaced the 2 year old baking powder that I just noticed the date on - they will be fabulous! The flavor is wonderful. My husband and I are happily awaiting a morning meal of BISCUITS and gravy!! No matter how completely incompetent you are at making biscuits - FINALLY - this is the recipe that will work!!!

Dried Beef Casserole

Reviewed: May 15, 2004
Ok, so it's not healthy - but most "comfort food isn't. Nice on a winter night.

Change hot sausage to mild Italian sausage, and doubled the mushrooms.

Real N'awlins Muffuletta

Reviewed: May 15, 2004
This is a good sandwich, but it did not taste the same as the Muffuletta I got in New Orleans. Also I prefer mine toasted and add a tiny amount of a hearty mustard.

Better Help for Hamburger

Reviewed: May 23, 2004
While the recipe itself may be good (have not made it) I find the name very misleading. I thought it would be a recipe for a dry mix you can make yourself to replicate the over-priced store bought mixes.

Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
Easy to make - came out great! I used 2 *Tbs* cinnamon, but we like extra cinnamon. The sugar needs to be adjusted - both for personal tastes and the sweetness of the apples used. As others have said, this can be used for so much more than just making a pie - our favorite is the apple enchilades.

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
WONDERFUL!! This is my husbands favorite. Of course he looked at my funny when I said something about "apple enchilades" but these are now on the top of his "please make" list. I have also taken a larger version of this to a potluck. Everyone loved it. Instead of the canned pie filling I use this filling. http://pie.allrecipes.com/AZ/ApplePieFilling.asp Since it is in my freezer, it is just as easy and tastes so much better.

Banana Caramel Fluff

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
Easy to make. Tastes like a lot more work than it takes to make them. Is very good as side to ice cream. Depending on your presentation, can be an elegant surprise ending to the meal. I have also made these sealing the bananas in the middle of an individual crescent roll.
