Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
It's the only way to cook corn on the cob. Having to shuck and desilk is so tiresome - can't imagine why anyone would want to do that when this method is so much more efficient. I love to sprinkle fresh lime juice on the corn after it's cooked instead of butter.

Viennese Crescent Holiday Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
I don't use the vanilla bean - too much work. Just use a good quality pure vanilla extract when you make the dough, I prefer Mexican vanilla. Also, if you use an electric mixer to mix the dough until light, you have cookies that literally melt in your mouth. Amazing. Plus, for a different taste, use toasted pecans or almonds, chopped very fine. For the chocolate, use Belgian Chocolate instead of chocolate chips, a world of difference.

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I've used this exact recipe for years. Butter is a must to get the great crust. I love lemon flavor so I up the lemon zest to almost 2 tablespoons. And, instead of sprinkling with powdered sugar, I use a thin glaze made of lemon juice, zest, and powdered sugar. It's really more lemony that way.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
This was delicious - best cauliflower I've ever made - used a cookie sheet covered with foil and tossed the ingredients together with two forks. Temperature at 450 and didn't broil it- just sprinkled on the shredded parmesano-reggiano cheese and and baked for 3-5 minutes. The cheese made the whole thing - I can't wait to make this again. Has anyone tried it with broccoli?

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Amazing, Wonderful, Any adjective I could use wouldn't describe how wonderful this was. I cooked it overnight in my brand new crock pot and my guest raved about it. He took most of the leftovers home with him. I'll definitely make this again. BTW - I also put barbecue sauce on the table for use but it's more than delicious without it.

Skillet Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
This is similar to the recipe I've used for about 30 years now. The one thing I do is to at least double the spices and add more green pepper. It's great if you use both red and green peppers. Never added the tomato paste though, I always use a large can of diced tomatoes. Great with cornbread or even over pasta --

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I've been making this exact recipe for years - and love it, my grown-up daughter's fav. I really like Adelina P's idea about using peanut butter Hershey's Kisses instead of plain, this year I'll make half recipe of each.

Great Grandpa's Garlic Pickles

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
These were really good - I ended up using a 24 oz. jar of pickles because I couldn't find the 16 oz. size, but used the original ingredient amounts. They're delicious - and, I didn't have the pepper flakes on hand, but the tabasco added the perfect amount of zing. Lov 'em and sooo easy!

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Love this recipe - I used an elec. mixer, creamed the butter and sugar until light and creamy. The walnuts were chopped fine and always add extra vanilla. When the cookies are baked the texture is so fine they melt in your mouth. Sometimes I use toasted pecans or almonds for a different taste.

German Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Wonderful Slaw - I used a 16oz bag of chopped cabbage and added diced green, red pepper and onion. Otherwise I used 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup oil. Added less salt and celery seed - I've been looking for a long time for such an easy recipe -- thank you allrecipes for this site.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
These were excellent and so easy. I didn't have a jalapeno pepper on hand, so I added chipotle tabasco sauce when the beans were done. My second time making these I added about 3 drops of liquid smoke. Don't know what will happen. BTW - No gas with these!!

Bacon Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
This is a excellent recipe. I sauted the onions in the butter before adding the flour and sprinkled the crisp bacon on top after about 20 minutes in the oven. Everyone raved about this at the potluck I went to. Definitely make them again.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
This is basically the same cookie recipe I use - when I get tired of chocolate (that's hard to believe), I use cut-up dates and nuts. I think dried cherries or apricots would be great too. It's a wonderful base for any cookie you want to invent.

Tasty Tuna Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
This was really good - I opened the freezer and discovered I didn't have any peas -oops - but it was great anyway. I used an alfredo sauce with mushrooms.

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
Very bland even after doubling the spices. It needs something, but I can't figure out quite what it is. My potatoes took longer to cook even though they were small cubes. I think if I make it again I'll cook the carrots, then add spices and rest of ingredients together. I put the leftovers in the frig and this recipe is GREAT cold.

Artichokes

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Love These - I've been trying to cut down on butter, so I'm eating them plain, right out of the steamer, with a dash of lemon. Delish!

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
These were okay - my recipe calls for butter and it makes both the texture and taste much richer. It's Christmas, live a little!!

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
This was good - however, I like the chicken to have some color and browned it in the butter. Much more appetizing that way.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
This was a good cookie but the recipe I've had for over fifty years has a finer texture. It came from a red Children's Westinghouse Cookbook.
