Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
Here is what I did to make one large bowl (4 quart size) of potato salad. 5 pounds of red potatoes, scrubbed and diced BEFORE boiling. Boiled for about 15 min till fork tender. After boiling, drain potatoes and placed on a cookie sheet to cool. After cooled I added: 6 diced, hard boiled eggs,diced into little pieces one 2.52oz box of Oscar Meyer pre-cooked bacon (warmed in microwave to make crispy), diced 2 stalks of green onions, diced 3 celery stalks (not 3 bunches, just 3 stalks!), 2 tablespoons of prepared mustard, 1 cup of Miracle Whip, 1 cup of mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Sprinkle top of salad with paprika. It was DELISH!!!!! Everyone loved it and I'll always make it exactly this way! This served 10 people with some left over!

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
Of course I adjusted the recipe like everyone else did! Here's what I did and every single egg was gone in minutes!!!! I've always had issues over or under cooking my eggs and when I peeled them chunks of the white would come off too..... Here is the best way to boil them: Cover eggs with COLD water plus an extra inch, add 1 tsp salt to the water. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil eggs for only 2 minutes, then cover the pan with a lid and remove the pot from heat and let it sit covered for 15 minutes. Drain eggs and run cold water over eggs till cool enough to peel, or refrigerate to peel later. Eggs peel best under running cool water. They cooked and peeled perfectly when I did it this way. I boiled 15 eggs and added 1 teaspoon of prepared mustard and about 1/4 cup of MIRACLE WHIP, maybe even a little more to make it creamier! That makes all the difference in the taste, do not use mayo!! I tried the baggie method but when I squirted it out, well, let's just say it looked like yelow logs! So I used my piping bag, as others suggested and they looked beautiful! Be sure to sprinkle with paprika (I did not add to the mix)! DELISH!!!!!!!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
DELISH! So easy! I scaled the recipe to 16 so we could freeze some for lunches. I used 2 packages of McCormick MILD Chili Seasoning and one 16oz jar of MEDIUM Pace Picante. Served over elbow macaroni, and everyone loved my Chili Mac!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
YUM, YUM, YUM!!! Perfect on a cold autumn day after a football game. The house smelled wonderful as this simmered on the stove. I doubled the recipe to have enough to freeze for lunches. I substituted the following: salsa verde, canned tomatoes with green chillies, canned sweet corn, and added half ground chicken and half cooked cut up chicken, to give it more of a chili texture. After it simmered for about an hour, in a separate little bowl I put 3 tablespoons of corn starch (add less if you're not doubling the recipe like I did) and added a little cold water and stirred till dissolved. I then slowly stirred the corn starch mixture into the chili to thicken, and simmered for another five minutes. I served with a large dollop of lite sour cream on top! We thought it had the right amount of kick! DELISH!!

1-2-3 Marinara

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
I scaled this to 6 servings and found it to be simple to make and very good. I used no salt tomatoes and added just a little salt, oregano and basil, as my tomatoes were unseasoned. I did find it to be a little thin, so next time I may cut back on the water by 1/2 cup. It was simple to use with ingredients I had on hand.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Awesome cake! I made this for Easter dessert. I did as suggested and used yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding and orange extract. I grated orange zest in the glaze and sprinkle coconut on top. Everyone loved it!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
I had ribs in the oven so I made this in the toaster oven. I don't think that was a good idea, as the outside got dark brown in 40 minutes and a little of the center was a little gooey. But we all agreed it tasted very good. The gooey center just tasted like mashed bananas. Next time I'll make it in my regular oven. Added a splash of vanilla extract and a couple of sprinkles of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. It took about 7 med bananas to make this. The outside was very crunchy which was delicious!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
My mother used to make these when I was a child, I made them for my children and now my grandson! We have always called them "Special Pancackes"! The only changes are omit the water and increase the milk to 1 1/2 cups, and add a little more flour if the batter is too thin. We serve with jelly in the center, roll up, pour on a little warmed maple syrup, sprinkle with powder sugar and slivered almonds! DELISH!!!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This recipe is so delicious! I had never made home made cream corn before, but when I saw this recipe and all the reviews I decided to give it a try. Well, I have now served this at several holiday buffets and everyone loves it! I agree with some of the reviews that the sauce can be a little thin, but I make it early in the morning and place in the crock pot on low for the day, to simmer and thicken. Also if you make it a day ahead, the next day the sauce is the perfect consistency! I then serve it right from the crock pot and it is so warm and creamy and delicious! It is good with or without the cheese, as the last couple of times I served it I got so busy I forgot to add the cheese! I scaled the recipe to serve 24 people and I only had a small container left over, as everyone always takes seconds! I used frozen Birds Eye steamfresh corn and it tasted delicious.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
We just ate this for dinner and it was AWESOME! I made it healthier by using Smart Balance Lite instead of butter, and Kraft Olive Oil Mayo, I omitted the onion salt and used garlic powder in it's place and used fresh basil. I only had Kraft Parm Cheese and used that, along with the other ingrediants. Served with green beans & almonds and orzo on the side. I will make this again and again. Next time I'll try freshly grated parm cheese.

Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
We really enjoyed this recipe with pasta or as a filling for stuffed peppers. When I made this a added a little thyme (don't add a lot), marjoram, basil and oregano. I have also made without onion, garlic or peppers and it's still delicious. This recipe works well with stuffed peppers too - I microwave the peppers till fork tender, boil and add 1 package of Success brown rice to the meat mix and fill peppers, with leftover sauce surrounding the peppers and bake in 350 oven about 12 to 15 minutes, just till cheddar cheese on top melts, as everything is very hot when I assemble the stuffed peppers. Too make it healthier I use salt free tomato products.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
AWESOME! I love this pie recipe. I've made it several times and before serving it everyone comments how pretty it is and cannot believe it's not from a bakery! The taste is the best apple pie I have ever had. It's not a hard recipe. Best to make the day before, as I've served it on the same day, even several hours after cooling and it still is very runny. It really needs about 24 hours to set. Serve with a vanilla bean ice cream and it's awesome. I use seasonal mini cookie cutters to cut out a couple of decorations for the top of the pie, such as little oak leaves in fall, little turkeys for Thanksgiving, snow flakes in the winter and it adds a professional look to the pie!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
The cake balls I made were german chocolate cake with pecan coconut frosting mixed in. Dipped in Bakers Semi Sweet Chocolate. There are a lot of steps and they are very time consuming to make, but they tasted awesome. Be sure to chill for quite awhile before serving. They were rich so we had a lot leftover. I served them to 8 adults and everyone ate about 3 to 5 each. Be sure to allow a lot of time for making these so you're not rushed. They tasted really good the second day, so next time I'll make them a day ahead.

Squash and Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
This was DELICIOUS! I used a huge butternut squash - it was rather difficult to cut so next time I think I will poke holes in it and microwave it a little to soften it up. I also cut the squash circles in half. I used boneless pork chops and it finished a little quicker. I doubled spices and it was perfect!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
This was very easy and the best frosting ever! When I chilled the bowl and beater I put them in the freezer and that wasn't good because when I poured in the cream it froze along the bowl sides! It was still OK, but maybe I should have put the bowl in the frig instead of the freezer! I put this on Pat's Award Winning Carrot Cake (recipe on this site) and made a trifle by layering cake, drained pineapple cubes, and frosing in a clear bowl (3 layers of each) It was delicious and a great Easter dessert:)

Pat's Award Winning Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
This recipe is outstanding. Although what started out a disaster turned out to be an even bigger success. When I tried to get the cake out of the pan it broke apart into 4 sections. I was in tears because I couldn't serve it on Easter the way it looked. My husband sampled it and said it was the best carrot cake ever and I HAD to serve it...so this is what we did. I broke the cake up into bite size cubes and layered it in a clear bowl as follows... cake pieces, drained pineapple chunks and Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting. I repeated the layers 2 more times. The frosting recipe is on this web site also and it is also fantastic. It was a huge success and people asked for the recipe. I think I'll always serve it this way from now on!!!

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2002
These cookies were the BEST and super easy!!! I did not find the dough to be too sticky. I made sure to pack the flour down in the measuring cup each time. I froze the dough in three loaves for about 45 minutes and it rolled out perfectly! I made these for St. Pat's with an Irish Derby cookie cutter! Everyone loved the almond taste.
