Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 3, 2002
This TRULY is the best potato soup you could ever have. Rich, creamy, full of flavor. You won't find better in a can or at a restaurant. The only change I will make next time is I'll use leeks instead of onions. Simply because I think leeks in soup adds the most delicious flavor. You definetly should give this soup a try!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 2, 2002
My husband said, "This is great!" He gave it 2 thumbs up! I used applesauce instead of apples (didn't have any). And put the pecans into the sauce (just before serving) instead of just sprinkling them on top of the chops. Would suggest doubling the sauce though, wasn't enough. Also since we love garlic, so I rubbed the chops with minced garlic and pepper. And let them set in the frig for a few hours prior to cooking. I served this with creamy noodles and fresh green beans. Nice change from boring pork chops.

Caramels

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2002
This took f-o-r-e-v-e-r to get to the 250 stage. And cutting them was hard too, then wrapping all those pieces individually. You definetly should have some help with at least the wrapping. They have a very nice flavor.

Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: May 13, 2002
OMG the gravy is to die for! I did one extra step, after coating the chicken I put the pieces on a rack so the coating could dry a little. And since I didn't have Paprika I substituted Lawry's seasoning. FINALLY I can now make fried chicken. It came out perfect! I have tried for years to make fried chicken, and the coating would always come off, I'd burn it. NOW I can have fried chicken at home and forget take out. Thanks Gina!!

Potluck Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2003
We had a cook out tonight and I used this recipe to make hamburger rolls. Everyone loved them, and said I'm not to buy rolls anymore! Their soft with a very nice flavor. They were easy to make too. I've tried a couple other roll recipes from here that were very bland, but these rolls, I can say have a very nice taste.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2002
This is the best rice pudding. Took longer to thicken then 20 minutes though. Very, creamy. 5 stars.

Creamed Chicken for Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2002
This was very good. Taste very close to the chicken and biscuit recipe at my favorite restaurant. I did cut way back on the amount of butter though, only used 2 T. and only 1/2 t. of Lawry's seasoned salt, instead of 1 t. salt. Also, I used half milk and half cream. Still VERY good!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2003
These are excellent! I followed GOURMETMOMMY'S advice, and they came out perfect. This is the first sweet treat where I actually liked the crust, it's light and soft. I agree with GOURMETMOMMY, I don't like any sweet treat "sickeningly sweet" either, and these have the perfect balance of sweet and tart. With GOURMETMOMMY'S modifications.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2002
This is a very good apple pie. I added extra sugar and cinnamon to it though, plus nutmeg and 1 t. vanilla. I didn't divide the apples as other said they did, I just mixed the sauce with the apples all at once. I layered the apple mixture in the pan and added extra sugar and cinnamon to each layer. We love lots of cinnamon in our apple pie, and a bit sweeter. I have always only made my mom's apple pie. And she didn't use measurements. So this was a nice change.

Applesauce

Reviewed: May 1, 2002
This is very tasty applesauce! I agree with the other posts about cutting back on the sugar. As it does depend on the apples your using. I would suggest that when you add the sugar, start with 1/4 c., add a little bit more sugar as you go along, tasting with each addition of more sugar. You can pretty much judge at that point how sweet you want it. I also added cinnamon. I also strained the apples before processing. There's nothing like fresh applesauce, thanks for this recipe!

Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2002
Excellent! I added more veggies, green beans, corn and potato. Next time I will add mushrooms and chopped, sauteed leeks. This was the best pot pie I've ever tasted.

Italian Style Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2002
This is excellent meatloaf! Truly the best I've ever had! I did add chopped and sauteed onions, garlic and leeks. I left the foil off as suggested by other posts, and it was done in an hour. Instead of putting my meatloaf in a loaf pan, I form it on a cookie sheet. Makes it much easier to cut into slices and remove. My family didn't think the herbs were overpowering as others said. I even used Italian seasoned bread crumbs. This is no ordinary meatloaf, it's superb!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
Really good. Usually when I try to make fudge, it's either grainy or doesn't set up. This set up in 2 hours. And it's very good.

Nacho Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2002
Very good. I also added chopped tomato, and a dollup of sour cream. I made my own nacho cheese soup though. Too expensive and too salty to buy the canned.

Twice Baked Potatoes I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2002
Just wanted to comment on the statement's about the potatoes taking longer to bake. My mother gave me this tip. Get a "clean" carpenters nail, insert nail into unbaked potato, leave in and proceed to bake. It takes about half as long to bake with the nail in the potato then without it. :-)

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2002
These are very good. I didn't have any yeast on hand, and was glad to find this recipe. My oven bakes hot so I turned down the temp. by 25 degrees, and watched them every 10 minutes. They were done perfectly in 22 minutes. A bit sweet for me, so one did the trick. :-)

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2002
Wow! Are these ever good! Truly, they are the best. Easy to make too. I followed the advice of the other posts, and doubled the spices, I also added a teaspoon of vanilla. I didn't have any cloves, and they still taste great! Yuuuuummmm!

Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
These are the best peppermint patties you'll ever have. Their smooth, not grainy, like the boughten ones I've had. It doesn't matter what fancy store you buy yours from, these will beat any other, hands down. Their easy to make, fast and fun. I dipped them in melted chocolate and froze. Delish!

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2002
Excellent beans. I added chopped onion, sauteed with the garlic. Who would think just a few simple ingredients, would make green beans taste so good? The combination of the Parmesan cheese and garlic, just gives a wonderful flavor. This one goes in my recipe box.
