Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Couldn't have been any easier! I used a mandolin to slice the veggies; very thin blade for onions and peppers- medium blade for cukes and it took just a couple of minutes. As soon as I finished mixing in the sugar and vinegar, I tasted them and they were too sweet for me. For an easy fix, I drained off some of the liquid and replaced with more vinegar- next time I will taste after I add one cup of sugar and go from there- too bad I didn't think of this first :) I used a sweet onion as thats all I had in the house and added a big pinch of red pepper flakes, they taste great. I am looking forward to experimenting with different types of vinegars and seasonings, but this really is a simple and yummy way to enjoy the bounty of the season right now.

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I make with half and half and it still tastes amazing- making my first batch of the season in just a bit.

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I make this just as the recipe states about 50% of the time. My family loves this and whenever I make it there is never any left after dinner. Have also added a large handful of grated cheese, roasted garlic, fresh herbs or whatever else is on hand and the family loves it too.

Dilly Rye Boat Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
I have been making a similar recipe since the mid 80's. Be sure to rinse the chipped beef and delete the celery salt unless you like really salty food.

Sweet and Sour Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
This was quite easy and pretty good for a quick change to smoked sausage. I tripled the sauce and hot pepper. I also added a green pepper and another vidalia onion. I added 1 large can of drained pineapple chunks in juice- the kids fought over those. next time I may toss in a few maraschino cherries and see what the kids do. Last week we had a potluck at work. I kept it warm in a crock pot and served rice on the side - it was gone before anything else on the table. Again, the pineapple were a hot commodity.

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
I doubled the recipe and baked in a 9"x13" pan. Served with home-made vanilla ice cream, this one was a winner! I noticed some of the reviews that said this was dry- it all depends on the type of apple you use! I use a combo of Gala, Granny Smith and Fuji, with great results. My girlfriend used red delicious and ended up with a dry and disappointing Crisp.

Cocktail Wieners II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
we used to have this when I was a kid. Everyone devours this. Mom always made this in a crock pot and let it simmer at least an hour or two before putting on the buffet table so the meat could really soak up the flavor of the sauce. Works great with Kielbasa as well(thats how Mom liked it best).

Kona Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
The family was not impressed with this one. The kids and hubby were not big fans of the soft floppy skin and thought the dish was too salty. I could try the boneless breast and some low sodium soy as others suggested....but will most likely stick to my ginger based marinade and throw boneless breasts on my grill pan when the craving hits, since the boneless breasts cook in less than 10 min anyway, what is the point of slow cooking them?.

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
The family loved this one!! I used plain dry bread crumbs and it came out perfect. Only downside- it was so yummy there were no leftovers for sandwiches! I made a double batch of the glaze for extra topping and serving at the table. Update: The kids request this at least 3 times a month and love it when I form it into individual sized mini loaves and bake them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment- that way everyone gets "2 end pieces" :)

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
These are the ones!!! My family loves them and we will never get them in a resturaunt again- these are just so much better. Hubby likes them hot so he adds extra hot sauce at the table- kids love them just the way they are.
