Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2002
I made a double recipe of this for a family dinner for my parents' anniversary. We added mushrooms to the veggies and it was WONDERFUL!! I cooked it at 375 to go along with the potato side dish I was cooking. It took about 1 1/2 hours to cook, but was WELL worth the wait. Definitely the best pork dish I have ever tasted, even from restaurants. The meat was so tender and juicy. This is such a simple recipe- very easy to make- and such a crowd pleaser that I'm sure we will be making this often for when company comes over.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
DH was asking for the spaghetti pie I used to make when we were first married, and I couldn’t find my recipe. This is the closest I could find, and really good! Better than what I used to make, according to my DH. I used lean ground turkey instead of the beef. I doubled the recipe and cooked in a 9x13 pan, because we wanted leftovers. I seasoned the turkey with a little seasoned salt while it was cooking with the garlic, onion and tomato to add flavor. I used store- brand jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the canned tomatoes & paste, and added 1/2 of a 4-ounce can of tomato sauce to spaghetti sauce while it was cooking, so it wouldn't be too dry. I also seasoned it with a little oregano and crushed red pepper. The only other thing I changed was to use 3 eggs instead of 4 (the doubled amount) in the noodle mixture, and I blended the cottage cheese in the blender so there weren't any large curds, because DH doesn't like cottage cheese. I also cooked it for about 30 minutes before adding the cheese. It may be because my oven doesn’t get hot enough, Overall, great recipe!

Three Bean Salad I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2004
My family RAVED over this bean salad. We LOVE cilantro! I used 1/2 cup light olive oil instead of the veg oil and substituted Splenda sweetner for the white sugar. This was VERY good. The next day I ate some of the leftovers on brown rice for lunch.

Hash Brown and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I'm giving this 4 stars with some changes. I made it first following the recipe except for doubling the eggs. The crust ended up really bland. Second time around, I tossed the hashbrowns with 1/4 c margarine and 1/2 cup minced onion and 1/2 tsp seasoned salt and pre- baked for 20 minutes. Then I whisked together 10 eggs and reduced the milk to 1/4 cup. Whisked with Salt. Poured that over the hashbrown crust. Topped with sharp cheddar cheese and Jimmy Dean turkey sausage crumbles (whole package). This was much better the second time around. We enjoyed it with biscuits and gravy. Mashed up together it's heavenly!

Southern Dill Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Excellent potato salad! My husband said it's the best he's ever had, and he LOVES potato salad! Followed the recipe as written with light sour cream and a mixture of light and regular mayo. Definite keeper!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2002
YUM! A big hit in our house. I've even made it before with low fat cream of mushroom soup and milk or canned evaporated skim milk (even better!) in place of the heavy cream, and it tasted good as well.

Baked Potato Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
Great crowd pleaser! Pretty to look at too :) I left out the olives, used red potatoes (skin on), 1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream, green onions, and sharp cheddar cheese. I cooked the bacon in the microwave to free up my stovetop for other things I was making for my dinner. I do wonder, though if the step of cooking the potatoes for 10 minutes in boiling water is a necessary step when they're going to bake for an hour in the oven...

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2003
I made this for dinner tonight for my in-laws. They both said it was the best lasagna they've ever had. I used fresh herbs (basil, oregano parsley) and freshly grated parmesan and prepared it 2 days in advance. Its also nice that way because there's no big mess to clean up if you're having company. The recipe doesn't specify whether to cook covered or uncovered. (Maybe implied uncovered). I put a loose piece of foil over the top. I think that cooking it covered would help to retain the moisture.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Delicious! Like another reviewer, I halved the recipe and it made 12 cupcakes. The batter was really liquidy, so I used a liquid measuring cup to pour it into the cupcake liners. I frosted them with my Grandma's cocoa frosting. Homemade frosting is much more important than homemade cake! **Melt together 5 tbsp butter or margarine with 5 tbsp cocoa add 1 lb powdered sugar and a little milk to mix. ** I used a hand mixer to smooth out the frosting, and piped them on to the cupcakes. I love that the recipe can be made with "staple" ingredients. This one is going in the family recipe book. They were awesome, and I am my kids' hero :)

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
Great recipe! It was great just the way it is written, but VERY sweet. Next time I may use less chocolate chips. I used a deep dish 9" frozen pie crust, and it was just the right size.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2003
This cornbread tastes good and is easy to make. Goodbye Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix! It has become a staple in our house. I usually cut my recipe in half and baked it in a cast iron skillet.

Colorful Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2002
An easy tasty recipe. I was worried about the potato flakes tasting "artificial", but the spicy seasonings hold the flavor together

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
These were so good! Served with a chicken vegetable chowder. Fried in Canola oil, with the windows open on an early fall day, and my house smelled like a state fair! I did increase the sugar to 1/4 c, and the salt as well. I used frozen corn, so that may account for needing more salt. I also added 1/4 c corn meal because I was craving something hush-puppy ish, so that required a little more milk to get the right consistency. Next time I would like to try these with some cayenne pepeper or jalapeno peppers in the mix. A big hit with our family!

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
These were very good and easy to make. I used a 9x13 pan and changed the recipe to 24 servings. I did not have a problem with the bars sticking at all. I love chocolate bourbon pecan pie, but wanted to have it in smaller portions. I added 1/4 cup bourbon and 6 ounces (half bag) of semisweet chocolate chips to the filling mixture. It turned out really good! This is a great easy recipe!

WAY too dry and overdone. I've had Lasagna cooked in crock pots before that turned out well, but this did not.
