Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
I didn't think anything would be too greasy for me, but these were. I precooked the bacon a bit before wrapping them. I should have used a rack or a broiling pan to keep the melting grease away from them. I also should have cooked them longer to make the bacon crispier. My husband likes undercooked bacon, so that is why I took them out when I did. He also doesn't like the brown sugar, but that is just him. Another mistake I made was that I cut the precooked bacon into quarters instead of thirds, and there wasn't enough to surround the sausage. I might try this again when we have people over, but I was trying to test it first.

Easy Creamy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
We didn't much like this casserole, and it was likely more my fault than anything. Two things were wrong. The cracker/butter ratio didn't seem right to me and seemed to need more butter, so I added 2 more tablespoons. When it cooked, it got real hard, and that was not a plesant thing to eat. The second thing was the noodles. I was going to serve it over cooked noodles, but when I saw how much liquid there was, I thought I would just throw the uncooked noodles into it. I should have parboiled the noodles as they didn't cook entirely. Overall, it had a pretty good taste, but I don't think I'll make it again.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I am a picky eater, but I licked the plate on this one. My husband made it with a few changes. I couldn't figure out how to post a custom recipe, and making changes and reviewing it is a pet pieve of mine. He used a whole package of noodles, 1 lb of ground beef, 1/2 lb of mild Italian sausage, 32 oz of spagetti sauce, 1 package of pepperoni slices on top, and a 16 oz package of mozzarella cheese. So you see, except for the addition of the Italian sausage, all the ingredients were the same, just a bit more. Boy, did it turn out good!!

Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
This is the best frosting! I didn't have a problem with it being grainy at all. Be sure to add some cream of tarter. I used in on a yellow cake, used canned lemon pie filling between the layers, frosted the sides and top, and sprinkled it all over with coconut. Devine!

Strawberry Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
I loved the way these cookies came out. I was afraid that using 8 oz of whipped topping would be too much, but it wasn't. Together with the egg, it was a just right consistancy. The first pan I made I cooked for 13 minutes, and it was a little under done. The second pan I cooked for 15 minutes, and it was great. Just watch them as your oven might be different. I agree not to put out too much powdered sugar as you won't need too much to roll them in. I posted a picture of mine on this recipe. I am going to try this with other cake flavors as well.

Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
I have never heard of dried beef in a jar, nor have I ever seen it in the store. I have made this many a time with browned ground beef in a brown gravy instead of a creamed one. I like it fixed that way a lot, but am turned off by dried or even luncheon meat.

Classic Goulash

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
Great recipe! I made it as is, and it really is a comfort food. It needs no tweaking! I have no idea where some reviewers got that it was Hungarian Goulash, but they didn't get it from this recipe. Never add something like cloves or nutmeg. Make it as is, and enjoy it as it warms up your tummy.

All-Bran Cranberry Crumble Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I haven't tasted it yet, but it looks awesome - in the center. I didn't have a 9 inch pan, so I used an 8 inch pan. That meant that 40 minutes at 400 degrees wasn't enough to cook the center. I had to bake it about 60 minutes for the center to get done. You don't have to guess that the edge and the bottom burned. I know I can cut away the sides, but not so easy the bottom. I think this is an awesome recipe, but use a 9 inch pan!! Also, fresh cranberries are not in season, so I used dried and soaked them for 15 minutes in water that I then drained off. No other changes were made.

Blueberry Orange Bran Muffin

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
These muffins came out wonderful. The only change I had to make was to sub wheat bran for the oat bran. For the life of me, I couldn't find any oat bran, except Kellogg's Cracklin Oat Bran, but that had cinnamon and nutmeg in it, plus it would have had to be crushed. For her Christmas present, I gave my daughter a "snack of the month". This month's theme was Bran, and these went into that package. I had to bake them 18 minutes. I used a large navel orange. You can really taste the orange in them. I used frozen blueberries, and did not thaw them before adding them to the flour. These muffins really are good. I recommend them.

Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
This creme brulee turned out great. I followed other's advice about using a water bath, and I found I didn't need the second cooking. I had to cook it longer, but that could be because I used a larger dish. It made only two, not five. It was pretty eggy though, so next time I am going to use a recipe with less eggs, and use a 4 inch dish.

Melt In Your Mouth Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Tuned out very good. I omitted the water and added vanilla. I didn't think it tasted very peanut buttery. It didn't "melt in my mouth". I had to chew. In any case, it is a good cookie.

Waldorf Astoria Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Turned out great for my cupcakes. I used real vanilla since I didn't have the imitation stuff, but it still turned out pretty white. Just be sure to add the milk a little at a time. Confectioner's sugar doesn't take much liquid.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Wonderful hot chocolate. Whatever you do, do not reduce the amount of sugar or you will ruin it. It makes 4 servings, afterall, and you can never call this too sweet. Sure warms up the tummy on a cold night.

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Before I met my husband, I used a different recipe. He introduced me to this one, and once I tasted it, I was sold. Now it is our go-to recipe for potato soup. What makes this so good is the bacon. We reserve some of the bacon to top the bowl, and also top it with cheese and green onions if I have it. They have the title of this soup correct - absolutely the best potato soup ever!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Who wants all of those lumps of potatoes in their soup? Yuck! I like my potatoes pureed, like the first picture shows. Cook the potatoes first in bullion and water, or in chicken stock. Puree them well. Cook the celery and onion in butter until they are soft, then add to the non-lumpy potatoes, and finish as directed. I am sorry I couldn't rate a lumpy soup higher than a 2.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
I made these for breakfast this morning scaling the recipe to 4. The first pancake I made, I did not let cook long enough, and it was raw in the middle. I tried another one, and remembered I had blueberries in the freezer. I sprinkled a few on top, and was sure to cook the pancake long enough. It was great. I followed the recipe exactly. I can't say it was as easy as making pancakes from a mix, but it sure did taste good. They fluffed up nicely as well.

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This recipe would have been a lot better and a lot easier if it would have used canned soup and real cream. The soup would have made it richer as would have the cream. The sour cream could be omitted as well as tomatos. Who ever heard of tomatos in Alfredo? Go ahead and used canned soup and you will have a great dinner!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
This is an awesome dish! It is not too rich. Anything less and the dish would not be worth eating, unless your one of those odd people who like to eat just leaves for dinner. It gets better as leftovers. I recommend this dish! I did use Cream of Celery and Cream of Chicken as the soup because that is all I had. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
This recipe is wonderful exactly as written. It is just like the way I do meatloaf, so that is why I like it. Making more gravy is easy. Just change the number of servings to a higher amount and follow the recipe for the gravy as written.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I am doing what I hate, and that is to review a receipe when I didn't follow it exactly. I usually think altering the recipe makes you ineligible to review it, but creates a new recipe instead. I added a teaspoon of vanilla and some blueberries. It turned out great. It was still fluffy. Next time I won't add as many blueberries since it took a long time to cook.
