Restaurant-Style Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
Loved this recipe! I added a pinch of celery seed, salt and pepper, and sliced eggs to put on top. I then added a few shakes of smoked paprika because my husband loves it. Everyone loved this potato salad!

Divine Summertime Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
Delicious! I used fresh grated garlic and fresh dill instead of dried. I also used French rolls instead of regular bread. Followed recipe exactly otherwise. This is a KEEPER!

Chef John's Pavlova with Strawberries

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
I had this dish in Australia in 1979 and I've always wanted to know how to make it. I agree with another reviewer, it is very European-ish and a delicious, light dessert!

Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
I served this at my Mother's repast reception and it was a HIT. I did make some changes, as follows. I was serving approx. 30 people. 4 tsp white sugar (instead of 2); No cucumber; 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper; 1/2 bag shredded carrots (instead of 1 shredded carrot); 2 cans of mandarin oranges (instead of 1); 4 cups diced cooked chicken (instead of 2); 1 can water chestnuts, drained and cut into 1/4s; 16 oz tub fresh strawberries, drained and sliced into 1/4ths. Everyone at the reception really loved this recipe! Thanks, KatrinP!!

Sunshine Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
My Daddy called this "Egg in a Frame" and it was something we both loved to make. I've passed this one down to my grandkids, and they love it too. I follow this recipe pretty much the same, except I butter both sides of the bread before I start cooking and I also butter and fry the "hole" -- that's always been my favorite part!

Secret Ingredient Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Glaze was delish, my family ate this up! I used parchment over a cookie sheet and formed my loaf instead of using a loaf pan. Very easy to make! My new fave meatloaf recipe!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Can I just say -- Oh-Em-Gee, these were da bomb! Not only did my family love this dish, I made some for my daughter and her family (she's pregnant and can't cook because the smells make her nauseous). They loved it too! We didn't have any leftovers, but they ate in it for four days! Absolutely delish!!!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I despise Brussels sprouts, but these were caramelly good. I did as another reviewer suggested and cut off the bottoms, then sliced them in half. These were a hit with my family too!

Bud's Potato Salad

I made this potato salad to go with hamburgers one night, nice change over fries. The sauce is delicious! I added about 1/2 cup celery, four eggs and used red Yukon potatoes. It was delish!!!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Made this last night to go over ravioli. It was absolutely delicious and VERY easy to make! Used unsalted butter instead of regular butter, and I doubled the batch. Be sure to use grated parmesan from a tub instead of a bag -- I started with grated parm out of a bag and it doesn't melt so well. I added more from a tub (like Boars Head, you can find it in the deli case) and that melted divinely. Upon our first bite, we could still "feel" the grated parm from the bag, so it will be tub for me from now on! DELICIOSO!!

Meemaw's Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
Made with Thanksgiving leftovers, this pie is divine! I followed the recipe exactly, pulled out my trusty 11" deep dish pie plate, and prepared to use my favorite Pillsbury pie crusts. OOPS, I was out! Pulled out my baking mix and whipped up a crust using biscuit dough. I poured the filling into the pie plate, topped it with the biscuit crust and cooked it at 425 for about 20 minutes. My husband and son each had two huge helpings and my husband took the last helping to work for lunch! I've never seen that pie plate empty, but it certainly was after I made this! A couple of changes I would make, though: 1) Add the celery in when you're sauteing the onions with the butter. My celery was way too crunchy. 2) I used a 10-oz bag of frozen peas, green beans, corn and carrots. It worked perfectly! Happy eating and thank the Lord for leftover turkey!!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Made this last night as a side to pork chops. Hubby and son loved it, and everyone agreed it was delish! There are a few things I would change, though. I would skin the potatoes first, as this instruction is not listed in the directions. Also, I would add another 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper to the potatoes. We had to add extra salt and pepper at the table, as it was really bland. You might want to think about using EXTRA-SHARP cheddar, too, as this may bring up the cheddar flavor a bit. All in all a great recipe, though! Thanks CathyM!

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Oh. Em. Gee. I fell in love with this recipe the first try! Hubby loved it too. Added 1/2 cup shredded cheddar. It came out of the oven like a souffle! Next time will try adding ham, mushrooms, onions and bell pepper or green chiles to make it more like a strata, because that's what it reminds me of. YUM!! Will NEVER cook scrambled eggs in a skillet again!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
This was AWESOME! Used pork roast with A&W Root Beer. Cooked on low for 4-1/2 hours, then high for 1/2 hour. Removed from crockpot and "pulled" the pork, adding Cattleman's BBQ sauce when I was done. Returned to the slow cooker for about 30 min. Served with my favorite cole slaw from this site (Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I) YUM! and a fresh fruit salad and BBQ beans. The meal was absolutely delicious, and my Hubby and son both agreed it was the best pulled pork sandwich they'd ever eaten. Thanks, Livie's Mammy, this one is in our dinner rotation for GOOD!

Pineapple Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
AWESOME! I used 1" boneless chops and prepared the marinade as written, marinating overnight. I then put them on the grill, basting them with the marinade as they cooked. I added the pineapple rings to the grill about five minutes before the chops were finished, turning them for grill marks and basting them with the marinade. I served this with teriyaki pasta noodles and a light salad with crunchy chow mein noodles on top. My son and husband LOVED this and asked me to add it to the meal rotation! DEEEE-LISH!!
