Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
I was so excited to make this dish based on all of the great reviews, but was really disappointed with the final product. First, if using sour cream as the base in the "sauce" there is no reason to make a roux. I followed the recipe and found the sauce to be way too thick to evenly coat the beans - it was more of a paste. I added generous amounts of milk to thin the sauce, but this really didn't accomplish much. I went ahead, baked it, and crossed my fingers that the dish would at least be flavorful. Unfortunately this was not the case. I added more cheese, salt, garlic powder, milk (everything just stuck together!), some Panko for extra crunch, and baked it a little longer. These additions helped but I really think the extra cheese was what made this dish taste better. All in all, I will not be making this again.

Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
This cake is wonderful! For people who think it tastes like a mix: good! It's always nice when you can find a recipe that uses ingredients that are identifiable but can stand up to a grocery store product. If you like mixes better then go ahead and enjoy your high fructose corn syrup. I added a little extra vanilla just to enhance the flavor and doubled the recipe to make a 9x13 cake, otherwise nothing was altered. One word of caution: the batter will be very thick so care should be taken when adding the blueberries and egg whites so as not to bruise the berries. This cake is very moist and not overbearingly sweet - much better than a mix! This would also make lovely muffins. Thank you so much Irene, this is definitely a new favorite!

Cheesy Catfish Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
My boyfriend had me rate this 5 stars which is a very big deal! I added some extra ingredients: a couple tablesoons of Cajun seasoning (didn't measure), a bay leave, and a couple teaspoons of curry powder (also didn't measure). The curry powder makes it - it's what changed the vote from a 4 to a 5. Also cooked the veggies longer so they were soft. Excellent recipe!
