Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
I've been making this for years. I usually double the recipe, because a) its good, and b) what am I going to do with a half packet of ranch? I do not cook it in a pan though, I like the texture better when I cook it on a jellyroll pan. It gets nice and crusty, but the grease doesn't run off and make a mess. I also glaze it with a combo of ketchup, mustard and brown sugar. Big hit in my house. I usually serve it with garlic mashed potatoes and orange glazed carrots.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Delicious!! They were supposed to be for dinner tonight, but I am already eating them. The house smelled amazing while they were cooking. Just the right amount of heat. The only thing I may do differently next time is to render the bacon seperately, and maybe put them on top when serving. Overall, this is really good, much better than the usual black eyed peas I have made for New Years. Thanks!!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I was very surprised that this was so good, with so few ingredients. I will admit, this is not a knock your socks off stand out chili, but it is really good for the little amount of work that goes into it. I used a whole 28oz can of tomato sauce, the whole 24oz bottle of Pace Picante sauce, and an entire packet of McCormicks original chili seasoning. Usually, making chili takes a lot of time and ingredients for me. This will become a go to recipe for a basic chili that doesn't take much work and tastes great. Oh, I also added an extra can of beans, just because a) we like beans and b) we wanted to stretch this meal a little with meat getting so expensive.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Me and hubby both loved this!! I wanted to keep eating until I exploded!!! I took a few suggestions and mixed them up. 1st, I browned the beef 1st (salted and peppered), I just have an issue with throwing meat raw into the crockpot. 2nd, I added 1/2 a package of onion soup mix, 8oz of sauteed mushrooms, and did 1/2 cream cheese and 1/2 sour cream. Served over buttered parsley egg noodles. It was delicious!!!!

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon-Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
1st off, this dressing is soooooo good!! I did alter it a little bit- I didn't have any white wine vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar. Also, I didn't have any shallots, so I just used a little finely minced red onion instead. I forgot to put extra bacon in the dressing, but I don't think that really made much of a difference- I think there was enough flavor already since instead of sauteeing in EVOO, I just used 1/2 bacon fat and 1/2 EVOO. Everything else I kept the same in the dressing. I also didn't have baby spinach, just regular spinach. No swiss cheese or almonds either, so I just used finely shredded cheddar (just what I had on hand). I had planned on serving this alongside some simple spaghetti and meat sauce. Well, we never got to the spaghetti because this salad was just too darn good!! My husband loved the dressing and the combination of the bacon, mushrooms and eggs with the spinach. I am sure it is even better (if that's even possible???) with the swiss and almonds in it. This alongside some fresh bread, and I was satisfied. I think it would be great with some grilled chicken. Can't wait to have this again!!!!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
For those people that were expecting more out of just 3 ingredients, I am not really sure what they are looking for. This is a simple southern recipe, usually served as hors de ouevres. It's not meant to be a meal, and it's not like a meatball at all. It's just something to snack on at a party, that's easy to make with things that a lot of people (at least us southerners) have laying around the house. I hadn't made these in a while, and needed to refresh my memory on the proportions of the ingredients, but this recipe came out perfect. It does take some work to get all the cheese worked in. I usually have to knead it for quite a while to get it mixed right, but it's worth it. Making them "walnut sized" balls though, I usually end up with about 45 or so balls, not 30. Maybe the recipe contributor is used to bigger walnuts than I am lol.

The Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
WOW!!! I did make a few changes, but not that many. I used white potatoes instead of red, since that was what I had on hand. I didn't have ranch dressing, but I did have some ranch dressing mix. I added about 1/3 of the dry mix package (Hidden Valley), then added a little sour cream, and a little extra mayo. I increased the mustard to about 4 tbsp, since my husband is used to a more mustard-ey salad. Everything else I kept the same. I did add the pepperoncini, but not the black olives, since I only had green, and was afraid it would be too salty. The salad hasn't even completely cooled down yet, and I can't stop eating it!!! Awesome combination of flavors, I can't pick out exactly what makes it great, but it's just really really good overall. Definitely making this one again.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
Very good!! I was just looking for a recipe to use up what I had in my fridge before I went on vacation, and came upon this recipe. I didn't have very high hopes for it, but it was delicious!! The only changes I made were to use white wine instead of red (that was just all I had in the house) and like others had suggested, I used extra potatoes. All I had were red potatoes, so I ended up using 4 on the bottom and 4 on the top. This is not a fancy mean, by any means, but it is satisfying, and I love a meat and potatoes dish that the veggies can't really be picked out of.

Cheesy Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
I loved this, my husband said it was OK. However, there is a lot of stuff he doesn't like so I am not giving his rating much impact here. For such a simple recipe, it was very flavorful, and a great change from the typical sweet acorn squash recipes I have made.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
Like others, I used stew meat instead of the round steak. I seasoned it with salt and pepper and floured it, and seared it on the stove before adding it to the crockpot. Everything else, I kept the same (except I halved and then sliced the onion, we like larger pieces, and used a package of sliced fresh mushrooms, since I think canned have an off taste). Awesome flavor, and even my sour cream hating husband approved of this. Served over egg noodles, and it was delish!! Good the next day too.

Bada Bing Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
I didn't have italian dressing prepared, so I just added 1/2 a package of the dry Good Seasons italian dressing mix, with some oil and vinegar and water. Added 1/2 Texas Petes and 1/2 tabasco sauce. Also, didn't have a lime handy, so just used lemon juice. VERY moist and a little sweet, but not too sweet. Will definately make this one again. One of the few recipes on here where I haven't had to add extra seasoning.

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I made exactly as directed, the only difference being is that I assembled everything the night before, and just increased the cooking time by about 30 minutes because it was cold from the fridge. Made this for some girlfriends who stayed the night, and everyone loved it!! Very filling, and reheated well too.

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
Delicious flavor, I think the vinegar and Worchestershire added a lot to this. I would decrease the salt a little bit next time though, but overall, this is the best Cincy chili I have made! I know the onions in the chili aren't exactly "authentic", but I love them. Made this again with ground turkey, and boiled instead of browning. Makes a big difference with the texture (or so I am told, I have never had "real" Cincinnati Chili, only the frozen Skyline stuff. Also, you need WAY more cheese for this. Otherwise, it's excellent.

Chef Scott's Pico de Gallo

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I love this pico!! I am a huge cilantro fan, so I use the full amount. I usually make this the night before I will be using it, so that the flavors meld overnight. I have served this to my Mexican food loving friends from California, and they said this is the best pico they have ever had!!

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I made this last night, and it turned out perfect!! I used the specific ingredients that the recipe called for, and it cooked in the correct time, and nothing separated, or was uncooked. My husband didn't like the crusty top, but I don't pay attention to that since he is just picky. The only issue I had is not seasoning the dish properly. Because of some of the reviews I had read here, I went easy on the salt, and I wish I had used a little more, but other than that, they were delish!!

Pineapple Stuffing

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I always ate this with ham growing up. And I always forget the recipe, so this is the one I use now. This is exactly how my mom makes it, and I make it exactly as the recipe says. Make sure your pineapple is not sweetened, just in juice. This recipe is supposed to be sweet, it ofsets the saltiness of the ham. I don't add anything to it, because for me, every time I have this, it is a childhood memory. I also usually make a double recipe of it. I do use a 9x13 pan, because we like to have it a little drier and with a nice crispy top on it. Even my picky husband gives this one a thumbs up, and it is one of his favorite side dishes.
