Chicken Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
Very good recipe! My husband gave it a 2 thumbs up. I couldn't find my mustard, so I had to leave it out. I will have it for the next time. Thank you Patrick!

Ground Beef Yorkshire

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
This was just so-so for my family. I think it could have used more meat. I made it as directed and ended up adding minced garlic, and nature season. Also added some bullion, flour and milk and made a light gravy to give it some moisture. It came out just right, guess it's just not to our taste. Thank you for sharing.

Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2013
Very good. Added another 2 Tbls butter. My daughter ate the small amount of leftovers out of the skillet. I also used flour added to the cinnamon/brown sugar, since I was out of cornstarch. Tasted just fine.

Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Personally, I like seeing recipes like this. They remind me of things I have not made in awhile. I like reading how people changed things according to their families tastes, gives me new ideas. Slamming a recipe because you think it's too simple is just wrong! Didn't your mama's teach you any manners? Sometimes simple is the best.

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I haven't fixed this recipe as is, but I do make a similar one. We add onion, butter and vinegar. We also use a whole chicken and boil it for 30 minutes to reduce the fat it the slow cooker. We eat it as is the first night and pick out the bones. Once it is cooled, I sift out the bones and freeze the leftovers for sandwiches another night. Thought this might help people who thought it was to sweet or runny. (Plus, I happen to like seeing peoples changes. They help me adjust recipes to my families tastes.)

Firecracker Casserole

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This is almost the same recipe that I got from Taste of Home magazine years ago. It is my husbands favorite dish. I do change it by using kidney beans because we don't like black. I also pour the rotel/soup mixture of the meat mixture, then add a layer of crushed tostitos, and then add the cheese. These changes came after making the original recipe. Thanks for posting this!

Sloppy Jo-Chos

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
I used leftover homemade sloppy joe. We ended up adding a can of rotel and some hot sauce. Was pretty good before but we liked it better with the additions.

Shrimp Creole

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I used more onion and garlic than called for, maybe more green pepper, too. (Didn't measure) Used a 15 oz can of sauce. No sugar. Butter instead of veg oil. Added some Nature's Season (McCormick. Didn't measure. Added to taste) Served over Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice. IMO opinion ... the extra flavor of the rice I used is what takes this dish from so so to excellent. No criticism meant. Just mean to use the type of rice your family prefers.

Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
This turned out pretty good. I did add poultry seasoning, extra pepper, extra bullion, a little salt and a small can of peas. We still thought it was kinda bland (but then, comfort food IS kinda bland.) Next time I may try a can of cream of chicken soup and less flour and water.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
I have a very picky daughter who doesn't like to try new things. She does love mashed potatoes, so I decided to serve the cabbage and potatoes seperate and let each person mix it themselves. My husband, younger daughter and myself loved the cabbage so much that we didn't even bother with the potatoes! The only thing I changed with the cabbage is to drain some of the bacon grease and add some butter. Needless to say but, the oldest didn't like the cabbage. Maybe someday we will try it with the potatoes.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Started this from memory, so had a few changes. (I had looked at a similar recipe prior to making this.) Don't think my changes were enough to change the basic recipe. I had already chopped green peppers, onions and celery and had them sauteing in butter before I could get my daughter off the computer long enough to let me check the recipe! I used a quart jar of my canned crushed tomatoes and 1 can kidney beans. (What I had on hand.) Used bullion granules and left out the salt. Other recipe called for 2 cups cabbage. REALLY glad I used the 5 that this recipe called for! May try 2 cans beans next time, but hubby and I think the cabbage is the star in this recipe. (He didn't even know he likes cabbage! He does now! LOL) Left cabbage a little crunchy, and it was great! I also did this on the stovetop rather than the slow cooker. My 12 yr old picky eater wouldn't even TRY it! (Typical!) My 9 yr old had 2 bowls and came back for a 3rd and 4th later! Hubby and I had 2 BIG bowls each! Absolutely delishes!!!!! Thank you for a great recipe!!!!! Edit: I made this again without the green pepper and celery. Must say that we liked it much better with the original changes I made. Still an excellent recipe as is. Just adjust to suit your families tastes.

Slow Cooker Manly Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This was pretty good. I did saute some green peppers and onions in about 1/4 cup butter first. Used leftover roast beef, so I just cooked it on the stovetop in my dutch oven. Cooked up some egg noodles and added them to the pot. I added 1 cup water and 1 tsp beef bullion to compensate for the lack of liquids raw meat would have produced. I also added a little garlic powder. Will make again.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
This was good. Juicy and tender. The flavor didn't really penetrate the meat. Next time I will marinate it in the sauce and cook it in the same sauce. I didn't sear it and I used dehydrated minced onions.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I only used 1 lb of ground beef (my mistake). I also used homemade salsa, 16 oz jar of my canned crushed tomatoes, 1 can sauce, substituted chili beans for the dark red kidneys, and used 1 packet of chili seasoning (again, my mistake). I also added some water for simmering (we like it a little soupy). Didn't really change anything, just used what I had. My husband declared it the best chili I have ever made! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This was good. I stuck to the recipe with these changes ... I browned 1 lb hamburger (my family won't eat vegetarian), added more garlic, and a 15 oz sauce. Smashed the tomatoes with my potatoe masher (kids don't like large chunks). Oh. I also used 1/2 of an onion. Served with garlic bread. Not WOW, but a very good, quick and easy meal.

Sausage Hash

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
This was very good! My husband loved it. I didn't add the carrots (forgot about them), added 2 dashes hot sauce and about 1/4 tsp garlic powder. Hubby wants me to add some ground chicken gizzards to it next time. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chicken-Fried Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I have this same recipe only mine calls for 1 cup flour, 3 tsp ground mustard, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp black pepper. After I brown the chops I add the soup and water to the skillet and deglaze it. This seems to keep the sauce thick and I don't leave any of the spices in the skillet. I then add the chops, one at a time with some of the sauce over each one. I have also cooked it on high for 1 hour and then on low for 2 - 3 hours. Either way, they are amazing!

Spicy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
I was dubious about making this. I made it and Reubens (Reubens for 4 and soup for 2). I left out the hot sauce for the kids. 5 outa 6 people loved it! My son said it was bland (told him to add the hot sauce). My husband kept saying it was "the best beef stew he had ever had!" I kept telling him it was 'potatoe soup', but he just said it was "better than Dinty Moore" (which is high praise from him. LOL) Thanks for a great recipe! I will be making it many more times.

Creamy Chicken Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Very good! I use mayo instead of sour cream. Also used nature season, garlic powder, 1/3 cup onion, 1 tsp worst, 2 Tbls dill pickle relish and 2 hard boiled eggs mashed. (Added the extra after tasting the original - minus sour cream) Family loves it and has for lunch daily. Hubby said it reminds him of store bought he had as a kid. Thanks for a great recipe!

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
My husband proclaimed these "the best roasted potatoes I have ever made". I mixed the butter, salt, pepper and parmesean together and then added potatoes and tossed. (Didn't use the lemon, personal tastes) My picky 11 yr old wants the leftovers for breakfast and offered to go out and dig up the rest of the potatoes (I used homegrown reds and tripled the recipe) so that she could have more. LOL Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
