Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I read reviews and added the suggested extra flour. Also, thought I had chocolate chips, but did not. Substituted Cinnamon chips I found in the pantry........MMMMMMmmmm, good! I may make them like that all the time! These stayed moist for a week (before they were gone) stored in only a plastic coffee can. Delicious -- thank-you for the new recipe!

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
These were good -- what I was looking for. Family liked them as well. Made half the batch w/o raisens for DH. Mixed in a handful of granola instead of nuts. Will make these again!

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
I was looking for the ham HOCK & bean recipe that gramma used to make. Tried this in the crockpot, except just threw the Hocks in and let them cook all day with the beans. Cut the meat off the hocks at the end...........MMMMMM!! This was a great improvement over just beans, onion & hocks! THANKS!

Sugarless Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
I was asked to make sugar free goodies for Grandparent's Day @ school -- these were OK. I mean nothing compared to a real brownie or anything, but tasted like a nice sweet coffee cake. I drizzled some sugar free cream cheese frosting over them to add some appeal. I only had dried cranberries (Craisens) and raisens, so just made sure I put 1 1/2 cups total fruit in them. Like another reviewer stated though - be aware that all that fruit counts for some sugar in diabetic exchanges. But, not a bad coffee cake-like recipe for special diets.

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
GOOD!! We love these cheesey potatoes anyway, so with pork chops on top they were great! An easy make ahead meal or one to bring to someone else (I brought it to families at church that had just had new babies!) Be careful not to really cook the chops -- just brown them on the stove and then they will cook up the rest of the way in the oven nice and moist.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
I thought this was good, but husband and kids thought it was a little to "orangey" -- that's what I get for trying to slip something new in on them, I suppose. Nice change from plain old glazed carrots, though -- and they may get them "slipped in" on them again. Afterall, Mama cooks what she has a taste for, right?

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
Exactly what I was looking for. I had tried to call my mom for her recipe like this and she wasn't home........this is the one I was looking for!! Kids loved it! and always better the second day here as the flavors all blend together and the crackers get a littel mushier!! THANKS!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
Pretty good -- I took others advice and added peppers in two stages -- some near then end. I only had beef round steak in my freezer, so thawed it and cut it into strips. I was a little worried that it would be tough and chewy in the crockpot, but it was actually wonderfully tender. Even the kids had no trouble chewing it up. Older son and husband absolutely inhaled this -- although husband asked for more "gravy" next time. I may add more broth and thicken with cornstarch near the end when I make this again. Thanks for a new, easy dinner idea!

Blueberry Pigs

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
Like others, I have to say what a great idea -- I may have to try it with other fruits, too!! I made it this time with another pie crust recipe from this site--"Earthquake Pie Crust" -- made the whole process so SIMPLE! A great dessert to whip up in the afternoon while a roast or some else is in the crockpot already -- complete meal with little effort. Give your family the impression that you are a real Suzy Homemaker!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
I was looking for this recipe since my mom was not home at "baking time." -- This was it!! I had time to read reviews and did make more choc. topping. (used the whole bag of chips) I did not add more gr. crumbs to bottom though and it turned out fine. I also used chunky peanut butter (what I had on hand) and it was wonderful!!!

Church Windows I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
WE love these -- I do like the other reviewer and roll them up in wax paper to then cool and slice. I find the presentation is beautiful this way and that my electric knife works the best for slicing them!

Golden Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
Not bad - but bottom was a little dry. Second time I wanted to try them, I had no yellwo cake mix, so used 3 cups of dry baking mix (like Bisquick) with the egg and oil for the bottom. Not a bad substitution there either. The top is delicious and sets up nicely.

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
Exactly what I was looking for!! Be careful not to cook the syrup & sugar any longer than just reaching a rollign boil though -- they get HARD if yo ulet it boil too long. I had walked away to answer the phone and the first batch I made were like ROCKS!!

Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
YUMMY!! 2nd year in a row that I made this for big family Thanksgiving -- rave reviews from everyone! I probably have the "sweet potato" job for the next 30 years!! Most people commented that they enjoyed the change from the old marshmallow recipe and the little bit of crunch on this one! THANKS!!

Simple BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
Not a bad barbeque sauce considering it's simplicity...ingredients I always have one hand. I, too, cut down on the onion soup mix a little, and added some orange juice (didn't have pineapple like other reviewer!) There are better BBQ sauce recipes, but this one is tops for simplicity! We put it on chicken wings for the kids one night as they can't stand the heat of other recipes!

Charline's Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2004
The coconuut & pecans were quite the hit at the "big family Thanksgiving" -- something a little different from just the plain marshmallows on top. Many of the "aunties" made good comments and wanted to know what I had thrown in there. (They do NOT like to deviate from the traditional dinners so this was a risk, but they liked it!) This dish was close enough flavor-wise to not throw people completely for a loop -- just added something a little different! THANK-YOU!!

Baked Mushroom Thighs

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2004
Husband & Sons liked this one........and thighs are cheap. I added canned button mushrooms to the gravy and like others, some garlic. Used Italian bread crumbs, too, and just started sprinkling garlic powder and paprika in with them for a little added flavor. Served with tri-color noodles and sweet peas....both good with a little of the gravy on, too. This can become an easy thigh recipe for once in a while around here.

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2004
OOHH -- We liked this one. Even DH who is not crazy about "sweet meat". 3 sons thought it was delicious. I made it again today and didn't feel like fooling with all that "rolling & stuffing" -- just cooked the chicken and apples all together in the skillet. Was just as tasty and much less time consuming. I waited omitted the breadcrumbs altogether this way and added the cheese (sprinkled on top) more as a flvorful garnish than anything else. Cooking it this way in the skillet turned this into a really good "one-dish-meal" -- EASY! -- but sophisticated taste! THANKS -- new family favorite for a change in Chicken!
