White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
wonderful ! I used 1 C. each of white chocolate chips , & cinnamon chips , & added chopped walnuts since I was out of pecans . One tip ...do NOT use ungreased parchment paper with these ! I did & they simply didn't spread @ all . That's my fault , the recipe clearly says "lightly grease cookie sheets" . Had I read the reviews more closely I'd have known better .

Mama's Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
learned this as a child , & taught it to mine . The only difference is that we also use 1 cup milk (batter will be thin but thats fine). You can adapt the recipe to fit your pan merely by increasing in equal amts. , but we do not ever use more than 1 stick of butter or margarine . you can use any fruit you choose , but if using canned , drain some of the liquid if there's a lot . My favorite is peach ....I sometimes sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top of that one . This cobbler bakes up into a great cake-like dessert that's wonderful served warm with a scoop of ice cream on top !

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
mistakenly bought garlic crescents & had to use grands biscuits instead .....I separated each biscuit & sealed the apples inside . Then I discovered I was out of cinnamon , so used a couple pinches of pumpkin pie spice . so it was 1 can Grands biscuits , 1 stick margarine , 1/4 cup each of brown & white sugars,probably 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice & 6 oz. Diet Mt. Dew , everything wrong but with AMAZING results !

Sweet Bacon Dogs

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I always use little smokies . Almost always put together the night before since they are time consuming then bake just before serving time . longer they marinate , the saucier the sugar gets . I would NOT even think of adding water to the sugar , nor would I use whole hot dogs ! The guys around here love them just as I have said ! Oh & the thicker your bacon , the longer the bake time !

Glazed Cinnamon Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
My family has been making our version of these for years , so often that we can have a batch oven ready in 10 minutes. I have never had my cinnamon & sugar fall out after rolling . I suspect you either don't brush on enough butter before the sugar mix , or they aren't rolled tightly enough . Chilling the dough helps with slicing , & might help you keep the sugar on. I always use self rising flour (no extra baking powder here) , add extra milk if needed to get the consistency I want . And folks, like others say, THESE ARE BISCUITS ....they are not supposed to be like cinnamon rolls ! You can skip the filling & glaze & you will have biscuits! If you don't like biscuits , you will not like these, don't bother. All this has me wondering what else I might put in there ....butter & strawberry jam ?....diced ham & cheese?...cream cheese & jalapenos?

Virginia Apple Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
my family calls this cobbler . For generations it's been one of the first recipes our girls learn to make. We use the same amt. of butter , no matter what size pan , then merely increase everything else in even increments , for different pan sizes . I use self rising flour & skip the baking powder & salt . It works with any fruit , fresh,frozen or canned and the only ones that need precooked are those like apples that won't get done in the allotted baking time . As for seasoning , use whatever's appropriate for the fruit you're using , same goes for sweetening the fruit itself ...none for canned , your preference for the fresh . Once you figure out your own spin on this recipe , its virtually fool proof !

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Oh my , how can something so simple taste so good ? I used sliced almonds instead of sunflower seeds and red wine vinegar (per a friend's suggestion)instead of white . After tasting it , several times , lol , I added a small can of mandarin oranges . Now I know what my dish for Saturday's family picnic will be . Don't hesitate (like I did ) to try this dish , its delicious !

Country Style Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
oops , forgot to add you can cut these in any shape/size you want the only difference it makes is in cooking time . If you use shortening and dont like the finished texture , switch potatoes . Each type has its own characteristics !

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
We discovered this years ago when we ran out of tarter sauce. My kids eventually decided they like their altered version best which is merely Miracle Whip mixed with a good relish. Even now, as adults, its not uncommon for one of them to put a spoonful of each on the side of his plate, stir & then add to whatever he's eating at the time. I haven't bought tarter sauce in years!

Pecan Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I creamed together the sugar and butter (I had to substitute margarine), added 1 teaspoon of vanilla , then stirred in the eggs , followed by the pecans . This resulted in a smooth , even batter , to which I added the flour & mixed well. I then used the wrapper from the margarine & greased 12 silicone muffin liners . Baked for 22 minutes @ 350 . Perfect , only thing I will change next time is that I plan to try adding a bit of cinnamon .

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
I have been fixing eggs this way for years . Its great . The reason for my review is this ....for those who add milk for texture (it does nothing for flavor) you will find that water works better . Give it a try , or look it up ...the Food Network chefs comment on it all the time . Water makes them fluffier , without that bit of watery liquid left in the bottom , unless of course you use too much !

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
I dont know why I haven't reviewed this before . I would give it 10 stars if possible. I've made it many times & always have to give the recipe away . This is amazing warm & wonderful cold the next day . Please don't overbake ...I believe that's the key to the goodness the next day . I ALWAYS make a caramel sauce & pour over the warm pudding before serving ! I also use fresh white bread usually ...it works fine . A sprinkle of chopped pecans on the top before it goes in the oven is a good addition now & then . I've been told this is great served hot , with a scoop of vanilla ice cream , but I haven't tried that yet ! Thank you Margaret !

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Excellant cookie ! I used 1 stick of margarine & 1 stick of butter , instead of 2 sticks margarine . I also used 2 teaspoons of vanilla and replaced half of the white sugar with 1/2 cup packed brown sugar. I baked these 1 dozen at a time , on parchment paper . They spread only slightly . In my oven 10 minutes is perfect for that tender crisp texture so important in a Sandie. These cookies are meant to have a mild flavor ...with these changes, this recipe bakes exactly the way I would expect a perfect Pecan Sandie to be . Thank you !

Really Easy Bread Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
This is close to mine . I saute my onions , use fresh bread & lots of sage (no celery ,one child won't touch it!)definately (warm) broth instead of water AND I use 2 eggs for the first loaf ,& add 1 egg/each additional loaf of bread . I use lots of broth & cover the pan til nearly done since my family prefers a very moist dressing . This year for the first time in 30 yrs. I plan to change it by adding chopped apple ...as long as no one tells them , lol !

Cinnamon Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
This is my favorite pie of all time although I have not used this particular recipe yet , but I can tell by looking that it will turn out exactly as its supposed to . I grew up with these . For those who don't know ,its merely a slightly different(& less expensive :) version of what , in this area, is called "Sugar Cream Pie " . If you look up that one you'll see what I mean . Its often made with a dusting of nutmeg on top , although I prefer cinnamon. Around here , its not an oddity , its a classic , often found on restaurant menus & well worth a try , but be warned , its wonderfully rich !

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I've been fixing this for years. I add the cabbage & onion at the same time along with the water , simmer for about 10 minutes and then add my potatoes along with regular salt & pepper. At this point you can add diced jalapenos if you want it spicy . I use canned ham patties (cut into bite size pieces) because they are my boys' favorites out of everything I've tried in this . I then let it simmer dry & add just enough oil or shortening to lightly brown some of it ( a preference of ours when frying potatoes or cabbage ). I always end up making two large skillets of this each time (I'm feeding teenage boys)and have yet to ever have leftovers !

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
I found this recipe on here over 5 years ago & have used it regularly ever since . I figured it was about time I reviewed it ! It's wonderful just as it is but I do add a spoonful or 2 of taco seasoning , use half broth & half cream of chicken & whatever form of Rotel tomatoes & chilis I have on hand (usually a combination of tomatoes & jalapenos & tomatoes with lime and cilantro). I buy white shredded chicken in 3lb. cans , use part of it & freeze the rest (getting @ least 3 meals /can ) Skip the chips & sour cream & you have a nutritious diet friendly hot lunch !

Quick and Easy Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I fixed these for dinner tonight . I followed most of the recipe as written except....I used 5 smaller potatoes instead of 2 large . After microwaving , I sliced them in half , covered them with Krafts Tuscan House Italian Dressing and Marinade , let them sit for about 45 minutes & then grilled them . Served with sour cream & butter, they tasted great (in fact they would have been great even without the sour cream ) ! This recipe will be a regular here during grilling season . Thanks !

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I first found this on here in Oct. 06 & neglected to review it . We love it ! I sometimes just mix everything up in a large ziploc bag (you can be selective with the herbs if someone has a definite dislike of something ). Then I just let it all sit until ready to roast . I think we are going to try that with precooked potatoes soon & then grill them after an hour or so in the bag in the frig. We shall see how it works !

Coconut Bon Bons

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
Ive been making these for years , but misplaced my recipe a couple years ago , so I was glad to find this one . I separate my filling into small portions , freeze at least an hour , then work with one portion @ a time . I like to form little log shapes with mine . I thought there was no way to improve on these until the year I tried butterscotch instead of chocolate chips ...wonderful !
