Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
Same recipe I've used for 40 years. If you like it a bit thicker, you can use a bit more cornstarch. Just a note-- if you are low on milk but have instant powdered dry milk, you can add the dry milk powder in with the sugar and other dry ingredients and just add in the water that is necessary to make up the correct amount of milk. It doesn't hurt the taste. This is obviously a keeper recipe.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
I have used nearly the same recipe for almost 40 years. The only difference is that I add 1teaspoon of butter and stir it in after it is all cooked while it is still hot. It adds a silkier texture. If you don't have a lot of milk to spare, you can use instant powdered milk in with the sugar and cocoa and just add in the required water to make the 2 cups of milk. It doesn't change the taste or texture. Good to know in a pinch. This also makes a good pie filling.

Cream Cheese Squares

I have basically the same recipe and you can call it Sopapilla Cheesecake. Very good for a crowd of people!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
Good basic meatloaf. To zing it up I always use garlic and quite a lot of black pepper. But the brown sugar and ketchup should be on the top of the meatloaf. I usually bake the meatloaf and when there is about 15 min. left, I mix the brown sugar and ketchup (and I add 1 Tbsp. mustard) together and spread it all over the meatloaf. Continue baking till done.

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
I have made this for years and love this recipe, but I always use either the Oriental flavored ramen or the pork flavored. It gives it a richer taste.

Chocolate Cream Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
I have made this basic recipe with the substitution of cocoa powder for the baking chocolate and no egg yolks. In fact, I usually make it with instant dry milk powder. It was a recipe that was developed by people who had no milk and eggs at the time. And it turns out wonderfully. Just put all the dry ingredients into a saucepan, and whisk them till combined and then put in the water to reconstitute the dry milk powder. Stir while it is heating and thickening, take off the heat, add in the vanilla and butter. Easy peasy.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
This is very yummy... hits right in the chocolate spot! I have also made it with a chocolate cake mix baked up and cut into chunks when I didn't have a brownie mix or didn't feel like baking them from scratch. But the brownie is better than the cake.

#1 Pea Salad Most Requested!

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Don't care for the mayo in this recipe. Have made it with a vinaigrette dressing and it was better. In the pictures, what are the big white chunks and small brown chunks? Need a picture that accurately shows the salad.

Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
Everything is fine with this recipe except that you don't need to cool them in the fridge for 2 hours. If they are cool enough to handle you can peel them and use them right away. As soon as you place them in the cold water they stop cooking and the time in the fridge is wasted. I know this because I often have to use them right away as they are usually an afterthought. I use them to make egg salad for sandwiches, use them in potato salad, or even eat them for breakfast as soon as I can safely peel them. Yummy.

Sweet Barbeque Beans

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
I've used this same basic recipe for more than 10 years, but have never put bacon in it. I may try that the next time. The recipe given to me was called Calico Beans, because of the variety of beans in it. I also use green beans in it, roma beans, a can of lentils, and black beans. This is a staple for large family gatherings.

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Same recipe I've been using for about 30 years. I don't use the lemon juice as it makes it too runny. I usually use dried onion flakes and they "reconstitute" in the sauce while the other flavors are "marrying". It keeps for a long time in fridge if you don't use it all up.

Waikiki Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
Good, but wondering why the Waikiki in the name? I was expecting pineapple or some other type of fruit in it with that name.

Mongolian Strawberry-Orange Juice Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
The banana does make it better. This is just the same recipe most people already use for smoothies. Just wondering what makes it Mongolian.

Chocolate Pudding Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
This can be called many things, but it is not a pudding cake. It is more widely known as a trifle. A pudding cake is a cake that you bake and it makes it's own pudding under it. The recipe itself is a good one, but it is trifle. It is even better with chocolate cake instead of angel food.

Slow Cooker Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
The problem of sticking to the crockpot is easily remedied by spraying the pot with Pam first. Duh! And to the people who insist on putting butter into the oatmeal (not in the recipe) I ask, would you put butter into a bowl of Cheerios? It's cereal, not a casserole or side-dish. I really like cinnamon in my oatmeal and it is actually a very good additive to help with arthritis pain relief and really boosts the taste of the oatmeal. This is a good basic recipe.

Chex® Muddy Buddies® -- Gluten Free!

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I've made this recipe before but the name on the recipe I used was "Human Puppy Chow". Not sure why because not many puppies eat Chex cereal... Anyways, it is very good and once you take a handful, you're addicted!

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I have been making this dish forever as one of my favorite "quick to make after work" meals. But I use 5 minute rice instead of long grain. I make sure the sausage is thawed in the fridge so that I can cook it quickly. I almost always have sliced red peppers in my freezer. When I put the sausage in a dutch oven to brown, I also chopped the peppers and a large onion and fry them all together. Then I add the liquids and add a bit more water so that I can cook more rice (large family). Bring to a boil, drop in the rice, cover, reduce heat and you're good to go in just over 5 more minutes. Easy peasy! I use the full tsp. of black pepper and just under a tsp. of cayenne, but then I'm using more rice, also. Everything is cooked in the dutch oven on top of the stove. One pan meal!

Maple Baked Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Extremely delicious!! My only piece of advice would be to spray the aluminum foil with Pam before putting the meat and sauce on it. Other than that-- yum! You can get the same "taste" but not the "texture" if you put this in the crockpot. I'm not a really big fan of ketchup, so next time I will back off to about 1/2 cup or possibly 1/3 cup.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
I can't believe anyone actually needed a recipe for this. I've been making and eating fried egg sandwiches since I was a kid, and I'm old now. If the bread is toasted, I've even made them and taken them to work for lunch-time. But I really don't like ketchup on eggs of any style. Possibly BBQ sauce.
