Texas Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2001
UPDATE: I changed the 1/2 cup shortening for 1/2 cup vegetable oil. Much better now. This is my hubby's favorite cake. He is from Nebraska and they call it a "Tommy Cake". I couldn't find his Mom's "Tommy Cake" recipe, so I looked until, I found one very similar to her's. He said it was just like the one he remembered as a child. We served it at a Christmas dinner this year and it was a big hit.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2002
A wonderful dish. I added 16 oz sour cream to the mixture before layering. Very spicey and with a good kick to it. Hubby loves it. Served it at a party last night and it was a great hit. It makes a hugh cassarole, but I have 3 tennage sons and it's just enough us for 2 nights. Will make again!!!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2002
Wonderful recipe. We have had this several times for dinner and everytime, it was a big hit. It has a very good flavor and simple to make. I used a whole chicken, cut it up, boiled and deboned. At the end, I added whole sweet corn at the end.

Divinity

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2003
I think this recipe needs some detail instructions for first timers. Cook the sugar mixture briskly, unstirred and undisturbed, for 10-15 minutes, until the temperature reached 255 degrees on a candy thermometer, or a drop of the mixture in cold water forms a firm almost brittle ball. I found the 10-15 minutes, was just as important as the temperature. Next, beat the second mixture for another 10 minutes or so (very important time), loses its gloss and is firm enough to hold its shape in a spoon. Stir in the nuts at once. Great taste and texture. Hope this helps.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
WOW!!! My hubby and I just loved it. Thank you for the good suggestions in the reviews. I left the salmon in the glass dish and covered the dish with foil. After it was done, served it over cooked rice. Very yummy....

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
I have been making this salad for about 2 years. It is the best recipe. It is better than a traditional potato salad. I added some yellow mustard and green onions. Also, I cook and dice the potatoes, add salt and pepper and let set in the refrigerator over night. Thnak you for sharing with us.

Simply the Easiest Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
Wonderful recipe. I cooked it 20 mins per lb and the meat wasn't tender enough. Next time I will cook at a lower temp 250 degrees and for a much longer time. I saved the drippings, drained the fat, added liquid smoke and thicken the sauce. It made a wonderful BBQ sauce for the Brisket. Also, I used an electric knife to cut thin slices. A keeper.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
These are so good. I cooked them at 250 degrees for 4 hours and the meat fell off the bones. I added a rub to meat before I added the BBQ sauce. My 4 sons and hubby loved them. Thanks so much.

Throw Together Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Thanks Sara, this one, was fun to make. My 4 sons called me today and asked me what was for dinner. They explained they were hungry and coming over to eat. They are grown, well almost.. I looked and found your recipe, it called for, to just throw things together and make a casserole. I had 3 half bags of pasta, wide noodles, shells and spagetti. I cooked all 3 and added them to the beef mixture. Everything I added to the casserole came from my kitchen. I'm on a tight budget right now. I didn't want to go and spend money at the store today. Well, anyway, it was great and the boys almost ate all of it. It was great for a last minute meal!!!!!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I made The Alfredo for dinner last night. My hubby and I have 3 almost grown sons at home, their friends and a long Memorial weekend, so I doubled the recipe. I switched the fettuccini for bowtie pasta and substituted the Italian seasoning with a premixed Alfredo seasonging package from the grocery store.. I mixed the bowtie with the chicken sauce and everyone loved it. Other than those 2 changes, I made the recipe exactly as it is written. I didn't omit any of the ingredients. The only complain, I forgot how difficult it is to make a good white sauce.. LOL, but it was worth it. I wish I could give it 6 stars. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
