Radish Top Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
It has been a while since I felt compelled to write a review here, but I had to leave some stars for this winner. My husband started growing veggies, and when we harvest a large batch of radishes I knew there had to be way to use up the stems (I like collard greens, mustard greens, etc.) and figured I'd find that sort of recipe. I did not find anything like that, but I saw this soup and decided to try it. I didn't have cream and used about 1c of milk instead, and I don't like potatoes in my food so I used a few cauliflower pieces to try to thicken it up (it didn't thicken it up, but it didn't seem to matter). I was curious to see how it turned out without herbs or seasonings, but sure enough the greens + onions was plenty! HUGE hit in our house, even with the 3 & 5 year olds. I am now having a problem someone else has, I want more soup but don't want a ton of radishes! I served it with diced radish as well, much more than suggested (and some whole of the littler ones). I also like to simplify, after I blended it, I slowly added the milk to the blender instead of putting it back on the stove.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
Good recipe, because I never realized you could slow cook a chicken. That being said, this recipe is very basic. You can jazz it up however you like to dress your chicken. I normally stuff with garlic & onion, and outside with many different seasonings. You do NOT need a liquid in it. Another thing I learned in the past year for ANY meats. The meat will make its own juices, so if you just threw that bad boy into the crockpot and turned it in, it will cook just right. A note to everyone who doesn't like it soggy outside (me neither, chicken skin is the best!!), when it's done cooking, CAREFULLY (I use big spoons on either side and move slow) transfer to a cookie sheet wrapped in foil, and broil for about 15 minutes. Gets the outside good and crispy, and everyone will think you roasted a chicken.

Jalapeno Snacks

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
These are awesome! I took other suggestions, and have tried using flavored cream cheese, and I always boil the bacon first so it gets nice and crispy in the oven. I don't use toothpicks, I just tuck the loose ends under each jalapeno, so when it cooks it hardens that way. At our family cookouts, they are always asking me to make this, even family members who 'hate peppers'. I soak them overnight in an ice bath after seeding and halving, this may or may not do anything; I don't like spicy jalapenos so I do this and always buy large jalapenos. They turn out mild for those of us who don't like super spicy. Also, I always wear vinyl gloves when prepping them so not to get the oils on my hands. Great recipe!!

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
This is absolutely amazing. I don't like beans and I LOVED this. Only change I made as per a suggestion, I left out white sugar completely and used a little more brown sugar. I used Jack Daniel's brand BBQ sauce but I don't think it would really matter what kind you use. AWESOME RECIPE!!

Broccoli Rice Casserole

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I made it exactly as is (except celery, I don't like that in food), and I'm glad I did. Measurements were perfect, and I never thought of making this casserole with American cheese, PHENOMENAL. I take it to our weekly cookouts and (sadly) never have left overs.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
AWESOME! I have made salmon at home many times because my husband likes it, but I have never liked it and end up giving him my portion. I was skeptical, the sauce didn't sound very good. Proof is in the pudding, this was fantastic. There was extra sauce (and I cut it in half already), but so what.. it tasted wonderful. I did as some suggested and salted/peppered/garlic powdered the salmon filet before coating both sides. I will be making this again!!

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
These were alright, some reason they were bland though. We had to add a lot of salt, and it still tasted like something was missing.

Southern Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I had to make this without bacon, because I didn't have any. I used a little garlic powder in the vegetable oil and made it the rest of the way suggested. This was AWESOME. Even my husband who doesn't like veggies loved it. I bet it's even better with the bacon.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
I thought this was bad.. I could only eat a couple bites, the mixture inside seemed like it was missing something. Gave it 2 stars because my husband liked it (however, in his batch I omit the spinach inside).

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Wonderful, I am not into peppers but I am pregnant and some reason I love pepperoncinis right now. My friend told me about this recipe, but I made it by dumping a 32oz jar of pepperoncini in crockpot with beef, cooked on low for 8 hours. It was so tender it just fell apart! It was way too spicy for my taste (the broth) but the meat was great. The last 20 minutes I added a bag of instant rice to the pot. It cooked up with all the flavor in it--this was awesome, I recommend trying this if you liked the recipe. We did not make it for sandwhiches, so I served it over the rice (No sauce on top for me!!) I am making this again soon and trying to tweak it to make it less spicy (add water maybe lipton soup, take out half a jar of peppers). This is only one of about 5 recipes over the years my (incredibly picky) husband said 'Wow, you have to make this again'.

Diet Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Great recipe, I omit celery & green beans as a taste preference. Not sure why this got bad reviews, everything else I made as directed and porportions were great-- not dieting, just needed a new soup to make. A medium head of cabbage wilts up well in this soup, perhaps someone else used a larger cabbage, only thing I can think of. I love it,my husband loves it and it reheats well!

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I'm not a huge fan of pork, but I tried this recipe to get rid of pork chops in the freezer. AMAZING!!! This is the best porkchop recipe I've ever had in my life, and I actually crave it. I am making it again tonight. Highly recommended! I only needed 1 egg. Try this recipe, you won't regret it.
