Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Just not very good. I reduced the amount of water and it still didn't set up properly. The taste was so-so. I ended up throwing it away.

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I'm giving this two stars because I prepared it as written, and this recipe calls for far too many potatoes. The overall flavor was really good, but I have to agree with other reviewers who suggested cutting the amount of potatoes by 2 lbs or so, and cutting them into smaller pieces. Another complaint that I had was that the casserole did not "set up" well. It was pretty runny. I have a feeling it will be better the next day, which is fine by me because I love leftovers. I may try it again, with fewer potatoes and more ham.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I had a boneless pork shoulder that was over 4 lbs., so I doubled the ingredients and let it cook on low for a little over 9 hours, and it was excellent. I did follow the advice of other reviewers and inserted six or seven garlic cloves, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It was a hit with everyone at the table. My husband even raved about this dish, which is very unusual!

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I followed this one step-by-step, and it was absolutely delicious. Thank you for this recipe. I don't think I'll ever make fresh green beans any other way.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This recipe was "OK". The ease of preparation is good, but it just didn't have a whole lot of flavor.. I will probably make it again when I want mac & cheese without the hassle of making the beschamel, but I'll add about 50% more cheddar. I think it definitely needs more cheddar.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I made only one change to this recipe; I added probably more than double the chopped jalapeno. I just kept adding until it tasted right. I took this to my niece's birthday party, and everyone loved it...a new party staple! I served it with pretzel chips.

Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
This was a great recipe. I did have to cook it for about 15 minutes longer than called for or I would have given it 5 stars. Everyone agreed that it would benefit from some diced green peppers and maybe a little bit of diced sweet onions but I'd make it again just like it is!

The Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
My husband loved this one. I followed it pretty precisely with the exception of using crushed saltines in place of the bread crumbs, and used ground sirloin (hey, it was on sale) and baked it in a meatloaf pan with a drain feature built in to keep the grease down. Very good!

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
I like the concept, but if you don't add other spices this recipe is pretty bland.

Pastitsio II

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
This was an excellent alternative to my own baked ziti recipe. I added quite a bit of cinnamon to the meat sauce, taking a hint from other reviews, and it had the most unique flavor. When hubby says "you've gotta make this again", it's a keeper.
