Easy Whipped Cream

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
My family has been making whipped cream for pies, etc. for years. I did take others advice and reduced the sour cream by half and adjusted the whipping cream. Never would have thought to put sour cream in it. This recipe is going in the recipe box. I'll have to pass on the secret to the rest of the family.

Dani's Butt Kickin' Bloody Mary Mix

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
Everyone loved it. We used green tobasco, and probably would have liked a spicier kick for our Bloody Mary. The flavor is really good - especially liked the horseradish. Took a risk on this even though it only had one review. Good risk.

Old School Mac n' Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
I've tried several different mac n' cheese recipes and this one I LOVE! Three reasons: 1. It has a little zip to it with the cheyenne pepper (don't cut back on the amount - even though it seems like a lot) 2. It makes 2 9x13 pans, so I can freeze one for another night. 3. It has flavor. The only thing I did differently was add cubed up pre-cooked ham right before adding the cheese mixture. Delish!

Pork Steaks

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
We enjoyed this recipe! Very quick, easy, and tasty. My husband usually does not enjoy pork. He liked this very much.

Cheesy Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Well, I thought it was decent. My kids normally like most foods, but they did not like this at all. I gave it a three because I really feel like it was the zucchini, not the recipe. They must not be big fans of zucchini?!? I agree with others, maybe some kind of meat our sausage would help.

Soft Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
Simple. Amazing. Not sure if we will have any left in an hour. I used regular popping corn instead of microwaved.

Granola Energy Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
We really like these bars. Next time I'm gong to try dried blueberries and a bit of white chocolate instead of the raisins and choc. chips. I bought crushed flax seed at the store for this go 'round. My daughter said she really likes them, and they are "really filling".

Apple and Spice Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
Well, this recipe had everything I was looking for. The kids didn't end up appreciating it as much as I thought they would. I think next time I would just slow cook it in the crock pot as many have suggested. I'll definately bring it to work for lunch tomorrow, but we had quite a bit left. The glaze was a bit overpowering and I would leave off the 2nd half if I was to make it again. May use the whole glaze in the crockpot though.

Hearty Skillet Supper

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I'm not sure why I picked this one to make, I think because of the high rating...I thought that, that many people couldn't be too wrong. This recipe surprised me! The kids all went back for more. There were no leftovers. I think next time I'll double the recipe. It was VERY good. A nice comfort food on a cold winter evening. Quick to prepare for the nights when I work. I just added parsley for color and made the recipe as is. Used blanched and frozen potatoes instead of fresh.

Florentine Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
TIP: When making a strata, I always place saran wrap over the top and press it down on top of the strata. I will place boxes (ie: brownies, cake mix, etc.) on top to hold the saran wrap down. Place the strata in the fridge overnight. This will keep the pieces of bread from burning, and soaks all the egg into the bread. Love this recipe...turned out golden brown and PERFECT!

Dutch Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I made this tonight for dinner with ribs. The kids were leery at first because of the color. I assured them they were good. After the first hesitant bite, they gobbled them down. My cheese lover insisted there was cheese in it. I used baby red potatos and didn't peel them first. I always just blend the peel right in. Since I didn't think about the carrot needing longer to cook, I had some small pieces of carrot in there too, but it was still very good. This is definately a keeper, and the name added some dinner conversation. "Mom, where are Dutch people from?" Thanks!

Green Rice I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I should have followed the reviews on the seasoning. I was going to but I forgot. It was a bit bland. I would have added salt, garlic powder, & pepper. It was still very good and I could see the potential with this recipe. I'll try it again.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I have to admit I didn't read the directions. After making it, I couldn't wait to taste it. I thought it tasted bland. Something was missing. After reading other reviews, I will try the proofing first and add a bit more salt. Other than that, it rose well and turned out very soft. Thank you!

Savory Roll Ups

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
I made this recipe tonight. We all thought it was good. I didn't use the Jarlsberg cheese, which I've never had. I'll probably look for it when I'm at the store again. I used plain old cheddar, which I'm sure is not nearly as good, but it's what I had on hand. They were nice. I would have liked to try some ham or something salty in there. All in all, I will definately make again.

Chow Mein Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
This was an easy recipe. I made it for that reason alone. The kids really liked it, the hubby and I could take or leave it. Just so so. Made with garlic as suggested and added fresh mushrooms to it. Didn't mix the rice with the meat mixture and bake it. Instead added the soup, water, etc. to the meat and just served it over hot rice.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Made these for a family reunion. I may have added more Worchestershire sauce than it called for, honestly I didn't measure any of the ingredients. A little confession...I NEVER measure. Anyway, they were fabulous. This is the second time I have made these, this time on request. The first time I used dried beans, but didn't cook them long enough. This time, I used dried again, but made sure they were cooked enough. I really like the flavor of these beans. Thanks!

Oven Fried Chicken IV

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
This recipe has a lot of flavor. I left out the Rosemary because the husband doesn't like. I added about 1 Tbsp. Tobasco sauce to the sour cream. The downfall that I will change next time is, I would pound the chicken breasts thinner, and would cook for a shorter amount of time. I cooked frozen chicken breasts for 1 hour and they were dry. That could be an altitude thing. I think this recipe has potential and like the fact that it doesn't call for oil or butter. I could use low fat/non-fat sour cream and it would be a TON healthier than fried chix. I like how crispy the outside gets. Definately will try again with a meat thermometer to make sure the inside is just done. Bet it will be extremely moist.
