Banana Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2004
I have now made this recipe around 10 times and have found this is the closest to "what grandma used to make". I have found that this recipe can be doubled for taking to a dinner party. Also everyone who has tried it raves about how good it is and how it is the best tasting 'nana puddin' they have had in a while. One thing that I have found improves the flavor greatly is to use more vanilla and also to use butter instead of margarine. Thanks again for the great recipe!

Dave's Ultimate Guacamole

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2002
The guacomole tasted great. I don't know where the 25 minute prep time came in, but it took me only 10 minutes tops, start to finish. I will make this again. I didn't have a food processor, so I mixed it in a blender and added less than 1/4 cup water to help my blender mix it. It still came out thicker than store bought and was excellent. Next time I might use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. Also for hot sauce i used habanero sauce and it blended nicely with the avocados.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
This is a delicious slaw recipe and one I've been using since 2007. It gets rave reviews anytime I make it for family or friends. I have made it both as the original recipe and also with my changes. I've found that my family prefers it when I use onion powder instead of the fresh onion added in - but if using fresh onion, the sweet onion that is finely chopped works best for flavor. Also I prefer apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar in the recipe. For the vegetable oil I use extra virgin olive oil. Only thing I add that isn't in the recipe is some black pepper. This is a great slaw recipe and one that is better than any of the slaw dressings that are available at the store.

Cheddar Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2002
Loved the recipe and everyone who tried it loved it too! Only things I did differently was sliced turkey breast instead of the bacon(used 3 slices louis rich)and monterey jack cheese instead of cheddar. I also added some of Emeril's Essence to it. Overall it was very easy to make, everyone loved it, and maybe next time I will use some habanero sauce in it. Also about 1/3 of an onion was enough for the church group I took it to. If I was making it for around the house I would have used the whole onion though. I recommend this to anyone who wants a tasty quiche.

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
I have made this recipe about 10 times and it is a family favorite! I use sour cream instead of the yogurt (I made it once with yogurt and my family prefers the version made with sour cream instead of yogurt). From making this I have found that substituting fresh chives for the green onions works fine (for those times when I had no green onions but my chive plants are always producing). Also I have found that when I have no jalapenos that tabasco peppers work as a good substitute (I grow tabasco peppers in my garden). The one time I used a habanero, my family said it was a little spicy for their tastes - but I enjoyed the extra heat of the habanero (with any pepper I don't clean out the seeds, I just dice and add it in). A tip I used from another review is to heat up some oil in my cast iron skillet and to "heat up" the tortillas about 3-4 seconds each side before putting the filling in. This makes for an easier time rolling/folding them and IMHO it also gives the tortillas a better taste. I usually use corn tortillas, but have used flour tortillas the same way in this recipe with great results. I would also like to give a big thank you to the poster of this recipe, as my family loves eating these.

Grandma's Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
I followed the recipe and the pudding turned out great! Super chocolate flavor and creamy. It tasted great both warm and cooled. Maybe next time I will try this as a chocolate cream pie filling!

Flavorful Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
The recipe was a great guide. I like to add and subtract of course, so I used a combination of cream sherry and apple juice in the sauce (1/2 cup of each), and instead of snow peas I used bean sprouts. Seeing I was fresh out of beef - I used venison instead and it was wonderful. Also when it was nearly done I add more soy sauce to taste.

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
I've been making this recipe since 2004 and my family enjoys it. I have made it both as written and also with slight tweaks. It is tasty both ways. For those times I don't have cream of wheat in the house, I have used crushed ritz cracker crumbs and they give a good taste in the recipe. For the past few years I have come to prefer the ritz cracker crumbs in this recipe instead of cream of wheat. In the past I've also substituted cream of celery soup for the cream of mushroom with excellent results. This recipe is excellent served with mashed potatoes or with egg noodles. Thank you Jessica for sharing this.

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I made this when I couldn't find my usual broccoli cheese soup recipe in my book of recipes. The taste is excellent and like what I can get at a restaurant. My wife has requested that I make this recipe again as she likes it better than the recipe I usually use. Since I didn't have frozen broccoli, I used a large head of fresh broccoli cut into pieces (and some of the middle and upper stem sliced thin and cut into pieces too). Butter was also used instead of margarine (I don't buy margarine and always have butter in the house). I used 1/2 of a large onion and guesstimated on the amount of velveeta cheese (on a 32 oz. block I used what I figured was close to 1 1/2 pounds). Instead of white pepper, regular black pepper was used along with a touch of sea salt. I'll definitely make this again. It is wonderful served with a fresh baguette (sliced). Also I'm wondering how the recipe will do with less velveeta and some butterkase cheese, gouda cheese, or colby jack added.

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
This recipe is wonderful and loved by everyone that tried the cookies made. Only thing that was done differently was that I used 1 1/2 cups of creamy peanut butter instead of 1 cup and a little extra vanilla (I don't measure vanilla, I just put in what looks good, lol). Either way, my son is wanting me to make another batch as he has found a new cookie favorite. Thanks for the great recipe!

Monkey Bread V

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
Excellent tasting - reminds me of the monkey bread that I used to get a long time ago from an old girl friend of mine. I'll definitely make this again, and wouldn't change anything.

Blueberry Crisp I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I made this the other day with some fresh picked Alabama blueberries and it turned out great. I didn't have any nutmeg only - so I used pumpkin pie spice instead. Also I used almost 3 cups of berries instead of two. The crust turned out as described. I would describe it as nice and crispy on top; yet it was softer on the inside. The secret to a good topping is butter instead of margarine (for those that cook with margarine). I am definitely going to make this again.

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
This is a wonderful recipe. I have made it 3 times and I usually don't have any left overs. My wife isn't as fond of onion as I am (she doesn't like the size I dice them I guess), so I used onion powder instead of fresh onion. Also I add garlic powder. For the cream of chicken soup I used cream of chicken with herbs the last two times I made it and it gave a nice flavor to it. All in all a great and easy recipe to make (just don't forget to thaw the potatoes).

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
This meatloaf was excellent and was a big hit with the family. My 4 and 6 year olds enjoyed the brown sugar taste. My wife who doesn't usually like my meatloaf (because my usual meatloaf she has dubbed bachelor meatloaf), was raving about it. Only thing that i didn't have on hand was the ground ginger, so the next time I make it I will make sure that is added. Also like some other reviews suggested, I added only a 1/2 cup milk. Thanks for the great recipe.

Amy's Marvelous Marbled Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2002
Gotta love it, I even won first place in a culinary contest using the basic recipe and garnishing it accordingly. I also use a cake pan with hot water on the bottom shelf of the oven, and bake the cheesecake on the top shelf. Very delicious indeed.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
I made these for my family today. I followed the recipe exactly other than using miracle whip instead of mayo. I also added some black pepper to the meat while it cooked. Flavor was excellent (5 stars for flavor) and reminded me of Krystals/White Castle burgers. Dinner rolls used were King Hawaiian sweet rolls. I found the rolls got hard on the bottom and slightly hard on top even though I pulled them from the oven early. (4 stars) I wonder if through some experimentation if the buns could be steamed to more closely resemble the Krystal/White Castle buns. Clausen refrigerated pickles were sliced and added to the sliders. They lent a nice taste to the sliders. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it made for a meal that could be prepared quickly (prep time). Overall I would rate this 4.5 stars.
