Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
OMG, I LOVE this. I cheated and just bought Zatarains blackening seasoning to save time & amount of spices to buy. I also served it over brown rice instead of bread. I wouldn't have had any pan juices left over for bread anyways. For the brown rice: I used the brown rice in a bag and cooked it in chicken broth instead of water, when done, I added 1 tbsp butter, some garlic salt & worcestershire sauce. I placed this fish on top of the rice. Everyone loved it. Will make again.

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
What a surprise this ended up being. I made it for my husband who loves peppers, onions & polish sausage. I used polish sausage instead of sweet italian sausage and I double all ingredients except the broth. I used 12 cups of broth instead of 16. I don't like peppers but the broth tastes so good that I had to try it and I have to say that I loved it. The more I ate the addicting it became. This is deffinately a keeper. Only complaint my husband gave it I need to add more polish sausage. Another tip...would also be good with chicken or both chicken & sausage. Thanks for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
This was actually very good. I didn't use all of the 2nd biscuits, mainly because I have a smaller crock pot.

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
This is the recipe I have used for years, ripped out of a magazine. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I don't waste time making it into a roll. I double the batch, bake it as a cake in a 9x11 dish and top it with the icing/filling. It saves a lot of time & effort not to have to roll it. It may not be as attractive but it tastes the same. I then sprinkle the walnuts on top of the icing.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
I use this method & pan frying depending on the mood I'm in. Baking it in the oven is the perfect way to get nice, evenly cooked, straight bacon. You can fit more on a cookie sheet than in a skillet. When pan frying, you almost always have big pieces of fat that get picked off & thrown away. In the oven, it all gets nice & crispy & edible.

Sour Cream and Chive Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I LOVE this. I will never eat plain mashed potatoes again. I did take others advice and sauteed the chives in butter, then added it to the potatoes. I didn't want anything "crunchy" in my mashed potatoes other than the lumps...I love the lumps. Thanks for the recipe.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This icing was fantastic tasting and it had no after taste like using shortening can leave. It might not be the best as far as having that 100% perfect wedding icing look but it gets the job done. It's great for piping swirls, grass/hair, etc but it looked just ok on the practice roses. Maybe others can have better luck making really good roses with this but we didn't. Thankfully, we didn't need roses. We used this to pipe a swirly cone on the cupcakes and then topped the cupcakes with a fondant flower. We also used this recipe as a crumb icing for the fondant covered belly cake my sister made. The difference was, for the crumb icing, the recipe was made exactly as called for. For piping, I made 2 batches of this recipe w/o any milk at all. For one, I left white. For the other, I added 1/4 packet of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Strawberry Shortcake flavor and a little red coloring to make it a little more pink. I then put pink on one side of the piping bag and white on the other and swirled the two-tones icing onto the cupcakes. It would have been a lot easier had I used two separate bags & stuck them inside one bag than trying to get the 2 colors to go down one bag evenly. I had icing all over me but it got the job done. The two tone color was very pretty.

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
My family loves these but I think using 3/4 lb of sausage with only 3 eggs would be way too much sausage (for us). So I used 1/2 lb of sausage with 3 eggs & 1 cup of cheese. I used a small ladle to scoop the filling in and it worked perfectly.

Raw Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Even though I made some changes to the type of veggies used, I feel I can give this a 5 star regardless. The dressing was made as is and you can really use any type of veggies to this and it's great. I don't like bacon in anything except BLT's or by itself so I omitted the bacon. I used reg unsalted peanuts instead of spanish nuts (don't like them) and I left out the celery and added 1 red bell pepper and a whole head of broccoli & cauliflower. Everything else was the same. Everyone loved it at our family Christmas dinner and my husband is a veggie nut so I knew he would love it. The cranberries & nuts give this an awesome wow effect.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I make this every year for Thanksgiving. Only way I really like sweet potatoes. It tastes more like a yummy desert than a vegetable casserole. The pecan topping is the best part. I just made this for our Christmas dinner this year and my sister kept going on about how good it was. I told her I make this every year and she admitted that she never tried it before because she doesn't care for sweet potatoes. She got busted!!! Now she's a fan. :) Everyone raves about how good it is.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Fantastic. Will be making this regularly. I followed all of the directions except for 2 things (left the Thyme out-not a fan and we didn't have Worcestershire sauce so used Teriyaki). Everyone bragged about it.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
My whole family really liked this. Unfortunately my husband took it out a bit too early and it was slightly gummy in a certain area. It needed to stay in longer and get browned more.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This is the 1st time I ever attempted meatballs and I really loved these. The sauce was really good. Tripled the recipe and took them to a baby shower. I had very little left over and had some requests for the recipe. The funny thing is, the entire time I was adding the sauce ingredients, I kept wrinkling my nose and thinking "this can't be good". I mean, cranberry sauce, chili sauce & lemon juice. Wow. But it was very good. I actually made these the day before I needed them. I baked the meatballs on a broiler pan so the grease would drip down and not pool around the meatballs. I then just placed them in a container, poured the sauce over them, put a lid on them and threw them in the fridge. The next morning at 8am, I dumped it all in the slow cooker to heat before the 1:00 baby shower. Perfect. The only change I made was adding a bit more minced onions and the bread crumbs were Italian flavored. That little bit of flavor didn't overwhelm the sauce at all.

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
I accidently made this not knowing it had a name. I made the regular fruit salad with cool whip (fruit cocktail, mandarin oranges, bananas, etc) and had a box of pistachio pudding that I decided to throw in & try it. I only used 1/2 of a small box & it gave it the perfect flavor (not too strong). It went great with all the fruit too. This is a great recipe that you can change up & add anything you want (including nuts, marshmallows, etc).

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Followed everything in the recipe but added some vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and 1/4 c dark choc chips and 1/4 c chopped walnuts and I made sure not to over stir. Made 2 mini loafs and cooked less time. Came out perfectly and moist.

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2001
I just love these. Coudn't believe it when I first tried it. My son didn't like the sour cream taste, but that was ok, more for me and my husband. I could barely taste the sour cream myself.

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2001
Everyone just loves these things. In fact, I have family giving me tins to fill for them, before I even start making them. However, my recipe calls for 1/3 bar of parafin wax. It makes the chocolate smoother and keeps it from clumping. You can't taste the parafin. They look sooo pretty. I freeze my "balls" before dipping. It hardens the choc on them faster and keeps the balls from falling off the toothpicks. I learned how to make these as a child and have been making them every year since.
