Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
I followed the top two helpful reviewers (Melissa & Auntnett) and baked the sweet potatoes, halved the sugar and substituted brown sugar for the remainder; Then I made double the amount of topping. The results? Tons of compliments on Thanksgiving! I didn't even know my husband would eat sweet potatoes! My hint? When you see a recipe with a thousand reviews retaining its five star review record - use it! This one is a winner.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
There are so many benefits from this method! Bacon doesn't curl, no more grease spatters and best of all the house isn't taken over by the bacon smell! I found it took a good 20 minutes to get it a little crispy but it is so worth the extra time.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
We think this recipe is wonderful, so much that I am going to try it again tomorrow with a homemade crust. I read and took suggestions from reviewers to brush the bottom crust with egg white to keep from getting soggy and also added cinnamon to the syrup mixture. I was going to mix the syrup and apples as someone suggested and then dump into the crust butI didn't. Instead I stuck to the recipe and dumped 3/4 of the mixture over the apples and it blended in nicely. No need to make extra work and dirty dishes by blending the syrup and apples as others suggested. All in all a very easy and extremely tasty recipe. A keeper for sure! Many thanks, Moshasmama, for submitting your Grandma's recipe.

Best Ever Split Pea

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Not so good. This soup would not thicken up as is (I followed the directions exactly). So I put in another half bag of split peas and it turned to cement. Will continue looking for a suitable Split Pea recipe. Also, shouldn't a true split pea soup have celery?

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I've made this cake two times now in the past two months. The first time, strictly according to the recipe and it turned out excellent! I love the presentation of the double layer! The second time I made it I couldn't find my coconut. I also eye-balled the brown sugar and probably used a little more than it called for. Both times I just rubbed softened butter on the cake pans and I'm sure I used much less than the 1/4 cup it called for. My pineapple cans hold 20 oz and this recipe calls for 8 oz, so I used about half the can of crushed pineapple and saved the left-over pineapple to use in the "Best Carrot Cake Recipe Ever" that I got off this site as well. All in all, a very satisfying cake which my family loved!

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
This is a terrific recipe. I have made it about a dozen times in the past two years. I do reduce the amount of liquid and sub Splenda for the sugar. I buy the coleslaw mix (shredded slaw) and it really makes the recipe easy to toss together. Love the red onion in this! It does seem to get better and better with age. We have never had a 10 day old batch...it's that good! I never thought I'd like a coleslaw recipe made without mayo. This is the best!

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
My whole family gave this recipe the thumbs up! I had more chicken breasts than could fit into a 9x13 pan, so I just made sure that I had enough oil (and pre-chopped garlic in the jar) to coat each piece. Then I crushed 3/4 of a sleeve of Club crackers and mixed with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese and the spices. Dry ingredients were put into a baggie and chicken pieces were coated easily by shaking. Baked under foil for almost a half hour, then remove foil for the last few minutes to 'crispy' it up. Looks wonderful, tastes delicious and is good enough to serve to company.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2005
This is a great recipe; my whole family loved it. I followed the recipe and estimated amounts of potatoes, celery, etc. (used LOTS more ham than called for). If I would have had the bacon on hand that other reviewers added (or chives, carrots) I would have added that also. It would have put this soup OVER THE TOP. As it was, it was delicious and I can't wait to experiement with it again. This is going on my left-over ham list. Thanks, Ellie11, for an excellent recipe.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
My crockpot couldn't hold the 10 cups of liquid and I thought just as well, because we like our soup thick. However, even with approximately 8 cups of water this soup was super-thin. I have a few other recipes for split pea and they are all superior to this one, so I won't be using this recipe again.

Corn Dog Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2005
I followed the recipe, including the celery & sage but used regular meat hot-dogs. It really DID taste just like a corn dog. The next day when reheating individual servings, I just sprinkled a little bit of water on top before popping into the microwave.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2005
Dora, thanks for an absolutely amazing c.c. cookie recipe! I have never made chocolate chip cookies that STAY moist! I have made at least three batches in the last month and received many compliments. (I followed the recipe exactly). I guess the secret is dissolving the baking powder in the hot water. Anything to quit making the "rocks" I used to make in the past! Thanks again!

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I gambled and made this the night before Thanksgiving. The night before they were moist, and smelled great. All right, I did steal a little taste and they were wonderful! However, after sitting overnight and cooking in the oven on Thanksgiving Day they became totally dried out and stiff. An embarrassment. It would not have been a time saver to "tweak" these taters at the last minute, either. It would have just been safer to peel the potatoes ahead of time and make them at the last minute as usual. And a lot less fattening, too, to do it the old-fashioned way, I might add.

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
My teenage daughter prepared this recipe on Thanksgiving morning. We didn't have the 10 x 15 jelly roll pan so she used a regular 9 x 13 cake pan and a round, 1 layer cake pan, which worked fine. She assembled the bars easily, and didn't make any substitutions with the recipe. We waited a few hours to cut them so they would set properly. They were a little goo-ier than your average bar, but they tasted so wonderful no one complained. We'll definitely keep this recipe.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2004
I took the advice of other reviewers and used low-fat mayo (Miracle Whip) and Splenda. I also used the craisins instead of raisins and just loved the tangy flavor they added! I cooked & crumbled the bacon the day before so it only took a few minutes to cut the onion and broccoli and assemble the salad. I should have chosen a smaller red onion, next time I will go with approximately 1/2 cup of onion. I brought this to a funeral luncheon where there was lots and lots of dishes to choose from. This salad was completely gone in a short amount of time! I will be making it for Thanksgiving, too, thanks to ease of preparation.

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
My family really enjoyed this dish, and since it was so easy to put together, I gave it 5 stars. I did read the reviews beforehand, so I also eliminated the salt and used lots of ham. (After all, I'm trying to get rid of leftover ham, that's the purpose here!). I don't like the flavor of mushroom soup either so I used cream of celery for it's blandness. Didn't measure the cheese either, but it was quite generous. Thanks for such an easy recipe, it's a keeper!

Slow Cooker Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2002
This was very easy to prepare and my husband and grown son "wolfed" it down. I like the fact that it takes only 4 hours in the slow cooker. Easy to make in the morning and have ready for a hearty lunch. Thanks, Jill!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2001
I didn't personally get to try this recipe. My family had eaten ALL of it before I got home from work. But they gave it the big thumbs up. They didn't take the time to make the dumplings, which kind of surprised me...but boiled some noodles and added it to the crock instead. They said "keep this recipe and make it again". I hope to try out the dumplings next time. Thanks for such an easy recipe.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2001
This was an incredibly easy recipe. My crock pot is oval so I ended up making five or six aluminum foil balls. I guess their purpose is to keep the chicken up out of the drippings. Other reviewers said it needed more seasoning so I wasn't shy with the Lawry's, and Lemon Pepper seasoning and pepper. It turned out moist and what we didn't eat right away, we refrigerated and ate later. Meat fell off the bone.

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2001
I have made crock pot roasts before, but this is the best. The simple ingredients in this recipe deliver a juicy and flavorful roast. Left-overs perfect for roast beef sandwiches. I thickened the juices for gravy with a little bit of cornstarch. My family loves this and it couldn't be easier! Five stars!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2001
Definitely a keeper! Now I can avoid making lasagna the old fashioned way, handling the sticky noodles! This was so easy and tasted so good. Thanks a lot, Kim!
