Berdean's Cube Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
I've never made cubed steak, so I was a bit nervous. This turned out great! My son loved it. I did a one pan method and after browning and adding the water I covered it with aluminum foil and popped it in a 325 degree oven for 2 hours (per another reviewers suggestion.) The meat was tender and served over noodles with the gravy made a great meal. My only change will be to reduce the salt next time. I think I will skip the salt with the flour as the bouillon gives it enough salt. Will definitely be making this more often! Great bargain dinner!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
Even with all the reviews I didn't expect this to be all that great by reading the recipe. Boy, was I wrong! I made it as written except I reduced the butter by half and used skim milk just to make it a bit healthier. Also, I just put pepper in by sight for our tastes and did not add extra salt. It was great!

Pressure Cooker Red Beans and Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
The flavors of this are good, but after an hour of cooking my beans still weren't quite done. Next time I will soak the beans overnight, then cook for 20 minutes without the sausage, mash the beans, add the sausage and cook another 20 minutes (as mentioned by another reviewer.) Time consuming, but easy and it should produce a more desired result. Be careful about the amount of water (don't add too little) since the beans will absorb water. After mashing adjust as necessary. Also - I only used 1 1/2 T. of cajun seasoning and it was on the verge of too much for us. 2 T. would have been way to much. I'm not Cajun, so that's part of the reason. But better to err on the side of caution!

Crackers a la Yvette

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
These are a hit at our house! I don't use crackers, I use pretzels - the kids fight over them at home and at school! The first time I made these I thought it was crazy pouring the oil over (I used pretzels and goldfish crackers that time) and thought it would all go in the garbage. Boy, was I wrong! Do as the recipe states and just keep stirring. These really do get better with time, the heat picks up the longer they sit. What I do: I put the pepper flakes into the oil ahead of time, so the oil gets infused with the flavor. I then mix in about 3 T. ranch dressing mix (you can buy it in bulk at warehouse stores). I fill my large bowl (I use the largest stainless from Ikea) with pretzels, leaving just enough stirring room. I pour the oil mix over and stir. If it seems too 'wet' I just add more pretzels until there is no oil pooled in the bottom of the bowl. The pretzels (or whatever you are using) will be 'wet' with the oil, but no excess. I usually sprinkle a little more ranch mix as I'm stirring too. Then, just stir occasionally! I've used pretzels, goldfish, chex cereals, etc. Just toss in whatever you have. Great recipe!!!

White Cake with Lemon Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, and had the same problem as another reviewer - the cake stuck to the pan. Maybe try greasing and flour - but I tossed the recipe and will try a different one. (My rating is for the cake, not the filling. I was using a chocolate filling.)

Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
Sorry, but I did not like these. The flavor wasn't 'wow' and the texture was a bit too dense for me - I did use 2 1/2 tsp of yeast. I make fresh bread every day, so I'm not a novice. The dough seemed good mixing it up, but not happy with the end result. (I used fresh onion and sauteed it like others.) I think I'll try adding onion to one of our other recipes to create an onion bread for my husband who has been asking.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This has quickly become a favorite cake in our house and I make it often. However, for those looking for a more orange flavor, I use VANILLA pudding and ORANGE extract, not lemon. It has a beautiful orange flavor. I don't even bother with icing, I just serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. It is also very good as a breakfast cake. Yum!

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Thank you for sharing this recipe! It is so good and so easy. I was tempted to add vanilla as suggested in some reviews, but decided to leave it out. I'm glad I did. These are butter cookies, not sugar cookies. The taste is perfect. Would be excellent with tea. I used my mom's homemade strawberry jam, which is my comfort food, and they turned out wonderful. I will take her some at Thanksgiving. I did use the suggestion to use a baggie for the jam - be careful not to cut the hole too big or the jam gets sloppy. I did not alter the recipe at all, I think the turned out exactly like they are supposed to. NOTE: these bake only until the bottom is light brown, if you wait for the top to brown you will over bake them.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
EXCELLENT CAKE!! And SO EASY! I followed the recipe exactly except that I had to do my standard buttermilk substitute: put 1 T vinegar in bottom of measuring cup, fill cup rest of the way with milk, let sit for 5 minutes. Other reviewers have used regular milk, so I may try that too. I am not normally a fan of cake, and especially frosting, but decided to try this since it was different and didn't need to be frosted. WOW! The batter tastes like sugar cookies to me. Everyone loved this. My honey took some to work for breakfast and the kids all took it in their lunches. I think I will try different flavors with the sauce just for variation, definitely orange and maybe lemon. I did not double the sauce and I think doubling would make the cake too soggy. Very thankful that I found this recipe. Will be making it over and over for years to come. THANK YOU for posting!!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Excellent flavor. This is a 1 1/2 lb. recipe for those who are newer to bread making and may have a multi-size maker. This would be excellent on dough cycle and baked in the oven, but turns out very good in the bread maker when in a rush. Easy recipe to switch up herbs if you choose. This one will be made a lot!

Hawaiian Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
WOW!! I love this bread! It has wonderful flavor, more like a dessert bread. I call it 'Pina Colada Bread.' :) I make it exactly as the recipe states. It turns out very soft, an excellent loaf. I make bread every day, and I think this is by far my favorite. (My favorite dinner bread is the Steakhouse Bread recipe on this site.) My only suggestion, depending on your bread maker, make sure you set to 1 1/2 lb. loaf and if you have a sweet bread setting use it with a light crust. I really don't understand any of the more negative reviews. This bread is outstanding!

Aunt Janet's Pumpkin Dump Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
This was a huge hit in our house. I followed the recipe exactly - we love it! It reminds me of an upside down pumpkin pie, but better. The cake mix and pecans instead of a crust make it delicious. I made it for a weekend breakfast treat and it was gone by evening. Thank you for the recipe! Will definitely be making this over and over.

Steakhouse Black Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I'd give this 10 stars if I could. This is my favorite bread recipe - I make it at least once a week, sometimes twice. The only thing I've changed is using 3T of brown sugar and reducing the cocoa to 1T. It's my personal preference. I make it as a loaf or as rolls, delicious either way. THANK YOU for this recipe!!!

Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I'm giving this 5 stars because it is so darn easy! I'm not a fan of pie crust anyway, and didn't have the energy to make a "real" one, so I tried this. My kids thought it was good, and I thought it was so easy it should have been illegal. :) Will definitely use it for my go-to pie crust recipe when in a rush. Not the prettiest, but very functional. NOTE: I did not put any salt in it after reading reviews. Probably will for quiche though.

French Coconut Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Yum! This is very different, and very good. It's like a custard pecan pie. My kids loved it! I did add chocolate chips as recommended by another reviewer. If you like choc. then add, if not, leave out. Will be good either way. I did have extra (made one 9 in. pie) and put it in a casserole. I think next time I'll just put it all in a casserole and skip the pie crust! Although I used the Easy Pie Crust recipe from this site and it really was simple. Could be served like a warm custard pudding. Very good recipe!

Orzo Shrimp Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could for ease of preparation and healthy meal. I had leftover steamed broccoli, orzo and a bag of shrimp to use, so I tried this. I followed the recipe except I didn't have quite enough broccoli, the diced tomatoes were Italian style and my shrimp was pre-cooked. I just added it at the end and it worked. This is a simple, quick and healthy meal. You could easily leave out the butter. I added all spices/season while the orzo was cooking. I added the broccoli and shrimp at the end since they were pre-cooked. Did add a little garlic powder...I add garlic to everything. This is a keeper, good for a cold day! Thanks!

Mock-a-Roons

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
I love this recipe! I did an ingredient search to use up some potato flakes and found this. It seemed strange, but I thought I'd try them. The first batch I made with Splenda and lowfat baking mix. I did add 2T milk to get the right consistency. I also used almond flavoring instead of coconut. My husband gobbled up the whole batch! He loved them! I made them again for a school potluck, with real sugar, and almond extract. I formed them into balls, thumbprinted them and put maraschino cherry halves in the print. They were beautiful AND yummy! This is a fun, different recipe that I will use over and over. I think I'm going to do mint next with dark chocolate disks in the print. Thank you!

Walnut Apple Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
Yum! I was looking for an alternate to apple crisp and found this. It was wonderful! I followed the recipe (half) exactly except for adding some extra spices. I used gala apples (because that is what I had) and topped with whipped cream. Might add extra walnuts next time, but this is definitely a 'keeper'! I would caution to make sure you cook it long enough, I had a small spot in the middle that was a little underdone.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I'm rating the sauce only, and conditional on this being prepared in a slow cooker. But, if done is a slow cooker, yum! If cooked for less time I think the vinegar would be overpowering - at 2 hour I was a little worried. I cooked for 5-6hours on low and it was wonderful! Even better the next day. This is a great recipe that can be altered to use what you have. I used ketchup and some leftover tomato sauce, real chopped onion, and spicy prepared mustard instead of powder. Great recipe!

Cool Whip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Oh, these are fun! Crazy recipe, but we loved them at our house. I used strawberry cake mix (kind with jello) and Fat Free whipped topping. Also, I cooked them on parchment paper instead of greasing the pan. I got 32 cookies out of the batch, but could easily have gotten 36. I did the calculations, and with fat free whipped topping at 32 cookies they had 94 calories each. If you make 36 cookies they will only have 85 calories. And these cookies are good!! The batter is goopy and hard to work with, but I took advice of other reviewers and just used 2 spoons, never touching the dough. Mine cooked for 10 minutes and are wonderful. Thanks for this really fun recipe!
