Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
I just mixed this up and I can hardly wait until it has time to sit and get better. When I tasted it I wanted to just keep eating! I added some pepper just because but otherwise followed the recipe. I know I will be making this again and again this summer. Thanks for a great recipe, Sandi.

Yankee Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
Very, very good. I have two little girls who tend to be wary of new things but all of us enjoyed this tonight. I an an experienced cook but had never made beans from scratch before. I had the bone left over from our Easter ham and wanted to try something other than pea soup this time. I had left quite a bit of meat on the bone so this made a nice meal in a bowl for us. I'll make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
I made these today at a hospice where I volunteer. They are delicious! I added walnuts and Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips. I didn't frost them. I don't really care for frosting on brownies and the man I was making them for didn't want it either. The brownies were still a little gooey when I cut one after baking for 28 minutes but they were still quite warm and they had the chips. I am sure when they are cooled they will be perfect!

Chilled Russian Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
I just made this to use in Cranberry Sauce Chicken II. I really wasn't sure my granddaughter would like it at all but she asked for a taste and her response was, "Yummity yum yum YUM!" We'll use it on salad tonight and probably have to make another batch for the chicken tomorrow night. I used Hellman's Light mayo and the dressing is delicious. Thanks, Sal.

Snow Days Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
This soup was so good I made it twice in one day, first at a hospice where I volunteer and then again at home for dinner. I added corn and carrot at home. I had half a carrot left over because the other half had been used for a snowman's nose! This is hearty and delicious. Perfect for a cold winter's day.

Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Very good sauce. I did add salt at Baking Nana's suggestion but that's a personal preference. I also always make more sauce than a recipe calls for but, again, a personal preference. I plan to use this sauce with chicken, too. Really very good.

Classic Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I volunteer at a local hospice by cooking. One of the residents asked for tapioca pudding this week and I used this recipe and it was wonderful. I probably used more vanilla than the recipe called for but otherwise, I followed it as written and it was wonderful. Thanks, Nicole!

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I made this at the hospice where I volunteer and it is wonderful! Made just as written using boneless skinless chicken thighs and it turned out just perfect. Real comfort food and still nutritionally sound. Try this recipe!

Peanut Butter Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This is very good. I used real popped popcorn (trying to economize). At first I thought it was going to be too marshmallow-ey for me because I am not a big fan of marshmallows but the taste of marshmallows seemed to mellow down. I did bake for 20 minutes or maybe a little more. I decided it would be better with a little more salt so I added a very small amount - maybe 1/4 tsp. I bet peanut butter varies in sodium level, though, so taste it before you add any. I think I will try it with crunchy peanut butter next time and I may toss some chocolate chips in after baking and then stir to let them melt around on the popcorn. I think I may send some of this in to my granddaughter's class for snack (they don't have any peanut allergies, thank goodness). UPDATE: I realized after writing this that the microwave popcorn would be salted - that's why I had to add salt when I used regular, natural popcorn.

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
I am not a fan of sweet pickles but I had seen this recipe recommended on the buzz and I decided to give it a try. I have to join in the chorus of praise. This recipe turns cucumbers into crunchy, cold slices of heaven on a hot summer day! After I made them I couldn't stop eating them. Seven cups sounded like an awful lot of cucumbers but it's really not that many. I used more garlic than the recipe called for because I like it anyway and my garlic was getting a little old. I will definitely be keeping these around and can't wait to share them with friends and family. I think I'll try them with English (seedless) cucumbers or I'll just scoop the seeds after slicing the cucumbers lengthwise but that's a purely personal preference. Thanks for sharing, Gary.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I have made this several times - can't believe that I never reviewed it until now. I make this in a slow cooker. It's wonderful to come home to especially on a chilly day. I added some chicken flavored, low sodium "Better Than Bouillon" today because my ham was not very flavorful. I also had one ear of leftover corn on the cob so I cut the kernels off and added them, It added a subtle sweet note that was good. Nice and rich and filling. A meal in a bowl.

Yummy Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I made this today at the hospice where I volunteer. I used 3/4 cup sugar in the batter and 3/4 cup in the dry topping. It was slightly tart and delicious. I like the way the dry topping makes the batter crisp on the top. I will definitely use this recipe again at home.

White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Very good! I left the walnuts out because my granddaughter doesn't like them but I think they would be GREAT with them. I used the zest from a whole medium orange and think I'll use two next time for more orange flavor. I also think I'll try them with half or even all chocolate chips. I really like the combination of orange and chocolate. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This was delicious!I used it on a chocolate cake - my favorite is the one on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. I put this between the layers and on top and then colored some green and made pine trees and added gummy bears for a pine forest. Beat this frosting for quite a while and you'll get fluffy peanut butter goodness!

Caramel Macchiato Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I had heard others rave about this and couldn't wait to try it. It turned out wonderful! I had three bananas that needed to be used so I used all three. I also have instant espresso so I used that. It is moist and delicious. I read on the Buzz that others had the glaze turn out crunchy. Make sure that you lower the temperature and just simmer for three minutes. Otherwise, you'll make penuche. I was taught to always add vanilla at the end off the heat to preserve maximum flavor so I did that in the glaze. I want to try this recipe again using pumpkin puree in place of the bananas. I bet that will be great, too. I will update my review and let you know!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
mmmm, mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmmm and again, mmmmm. I am a Yankee born and bred but I have spent quite a bit of time in Atlanta and this is IT. Southern sweet tea at its best. I had heard about using baking soda to make clear iced tea and it sounded odd to me but just a tiny pinch yields a crystal clear tea with no discernible flavor. Adjust the sweetness after the first batch if you want to but try it first as written. It really is a treat.

Family's Favorite Mini Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2014
These were a huge hit with my family. They bake quickly so they'd be great for a weeknight dinner. I could mix them up and refrigerate them and then pop them in the oven when we get home. I'm going to freeze the leftovers but I am betting more will make it into my lunch bag than make it to the dinner table! They'll heat up nicely in my Lunch Crock. Thanks, Paula. This is definitely a keeper!

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Quick, easy and delicious. What more could you want? I saw Morgan's picture of this and decided to try it. Then I nearly forgot so I threw it together at the last minute. My little granddaughters and I all loved it! Thanks for a great cornbread recipe.

Ruby Drive Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Really quick and delicious. This was perfect for a hot evening since it's one pan and cooks quickly. I don't really like dijon mustard but I wanted to be true to the recipe so I added it. You can't detect it specifically and it probably did add to the overall taste so I am glad I put it in. I did add onion powder and garlic powder but it probably didn't need it so don't sweat it if you don't have any. Make it as written and enjoy! UPDATE: I now have custody of my 6 and 7 year old granddaughters. I was afraid these might be too spicy or tangy for them. I don't find them too spicy or tangy but I fixed them without the hot pepper and held my breath and my girls LOVED them! Fix them, serve them, enjoy them. This recipe is a winner.

Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
I used green onions as other reviewers did and I also needed to add an extra splash of milk. I am lactose intolerant and didn't want to buy buttermilk just for this recipe so I put a Tablespoon of cider vinegar into a measuring cup and then added enough lactose-free milk to make the one cup needed. These biscuits are really delicious. The perfect accompaniment to my "wow, Fall is here" chili.
