Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
I live in Colorado Springs and prepared this exactly as written. I did mash the bananas. Baked loaf for an additional 1/2 hour due to altitude. A first--Mylove requested that this be made on a weekly basis...even fussed about the fact that I ate the last slice since "you made the banana bread for me!" Absolutely delicious-moist AND flavorful.

Quick Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
I always go to Allrecipes to find the perfect starter base for any recipe that has to have a "certain taste". This was perfect. Mylove said that he had a taste for the tuna salad from his childhood-the tuna salad his grandmother made for him when he was a little boy. I doubled the recipe and it was too "wet". Mylove tasted it throughout as I added 2 pouches of Starkist tuna (no draining needed), 2 T each finely chopped celery, onion, 2 T. sweet relish (no juice), 1 T yellow mustard and 2 boiled eggs, finely chopped. After the final taste test, Mylove said, "Now THIS is the tuna salad my grandmother made for me when I was a little boy. Let's eat it now on kaiser rolls with lettuce and tomatoes tonight instead of waiting for tomorrow." It's great to be appreciated!

Hamburger Supper

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
Work 2-10pm, time to give my faithful crockpot a break, Picked this recipe because of basic ingredients and being a one pan meal. Mylove called me at 6pm to tell me to add it to the "keeper" list...first time he has ever done this! Followed recipe and added a dash of worchestershire sauce, a sprinkling of cayenne pepper and substitued 1 tsp of minced garlic instead of the poultry seasoning. Mylove turned it on low to warm up half an hour before he was ready to eat....

Creamy Mashed Potatoes II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I made this recipe Thanksgiving morning to take to our family get together. I used 1 pkg of dry buttermilk ranch and added 1cup of liquid ranch dressing, sprinkled shredded sharp cheddar lightly over the top after putting potato mixture in a 13x9 ceramic baking dish. Microwaved a whole package of Tyson thick bacon until crisp, crumbled when cooled and sprinkled over entire dish. No salt or pepper needed. Family said they knew it was going to be delicious before they even tasted it because you can't go wrong with bacon. Also, I used a potato masher-did not use a mixer at all. So flavorful, gravy was not a thought!

Shrimp Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
This is an excellent base for fried rice and can be easily adjusted to taste. I added 1 cup of the frozen peas/carrots and left out the eggs. Based upon Mylove's request, the next time-oh yes, there will be a next time-I will add the eggs and little bit more seasoning, either 5 spice or oyster sauce. Great recipe-fun to make.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I will never buy refrigerated cookie dough ever again! Simply the best oatmeal cookie recipe and I have tried more than I care to remember. I added 1 cup of pecan pieces, used a large cookie scoop and parchment paper. Mylove could not wait for them to come out of the oven. Mylove finished the batch last night and has requested more cookies-only this recipe!

Southern Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Delicious. Crisp bacon and remove from pot. I love my cabbage cooked until it is wilted. Crumbled the bacon, placed cabbage in a serving dish and sprinkled the crumbled bacon on top. A little slice of heaven.

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
I prepare this in the crockpot before going to work, cover and place in the refrigerator. Come home at noon and place crock insert in slow cooker and simmer on low until I come home six hours later. Chicken breast come out tender and full of flavor-either fresh or frozen. We love this served over rice with steamed broccoli on the side.

Peach Cobbler I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I used 2 cans of sliced light peaches, drained well and did not add the additional 2T sugar. The topping was a tan color because of the cinnamon. Suggest draining all liquid from the peaches, put the butter in the topping and sprinkle the cinnamon over the peaches prior to covering with the topping. Take the time to use a rubber spatula to spread the topping to cover the peaches if you are not satisfied with dropping by the spoonfuls on top of the peaches. The flavor was delicious. As you can see by the picture Mylove took, the topping bakes as spooned over the peaches.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I substituted A1 Bold Steak Sauce for the Worchestershire Sauce as I did not have it on hand. I doubled the gravy fixins and added a small can of sliced mushrooms-personal preference. MOIST AND DELICIOUS. This recipe can be prepared early in the day, but prior to serving you will have to add a little water to the gravy to get the consistency you want. Hamburger patties remained moist and flavorful.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
The texture, sweetness and flavor of this cornbread was more than I expected and tasted exactly how my honey loves his cornbread. I have recently returned to cooking from scratch and am now cooking for two. I prepared this recipe specifically for my honey as he had asked for sweet cornbread. I used 1.5 tsp of baking powder as I did not have the 1/2 t. of baking soda and 1/3 cup canned milk and 2/3 c. water with 3 T. white vingar as I did not have buttermilk. I baked the cornbread in a prepared 8 inch cast iron skillet for 40 minutes. I prepared this along with Country Style Green Beans with Red Potatoes and Baby Back Ribs. We had no room left for dessert tonight. My honey said that all of the dishes could not have been prepared any better. There is nothing (almost) better than cooking for someone who loves me and appreciates good cooking.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I have just recently returned to cooking from scratch and am now cooking for two. I had no time to marinate as I pulled these ribs straight out of the freezer and thawed at room temp. I sprayed a sheet of Reynolds Heavy Duty foil with Pam spray and then prepared a rack of pork baby back ribs with McCorkmick Grillmates Pork Rub and covered with KC Materpiece BBQ sauce. I wrapped the rack in the prepared foil and then wrapped this again in another layer of heavy duty foil. I placed this package in the bottom of a broiler pan and baked for 3.5 hours at 350 degrees. I opened the foil and covered the top with additional BBQ sauce and broiled on low until the top looked the way I expected for BBQ ribs. They were tender, flavorful and delicious. My honey said that there was no way they could have been any better. I also prepared Grandma's Buttermilk Cornbread cooked in a prepared 8 inch cast iron skillet and Country Style Green Beans with Potatoes. We had no room for dessert tonight!

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
I am just getting back into cooking..this was my first choice. I made this tonight using the egg yolk, A1 Bold /Spicy steak sauce and George. MM loved the flavor--said was the most tender and juiciest burger he had ever had. I had mine without the bun, burger veges only...fantastic. Will make this recipe whenever a burger mood hits us again.
