Sweet Potatoes for Two

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
The recipe doesn't state how you should cook the potatoes before you prepare them so I cubed them, coated them in a little olive oil and baked them in a 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes...which made them crispy up to that point. Then I followed the recipe as stated. They were really good...kind of reminded me of the Schwann's sweet potatoes that I love.

Tater Tot Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
What a cool idea! The tater tots might as well be hashbrowns. This was easy and tastes great. You hardly notice the eggs being in it, I guess they act more as a binder. I would add extra eggs next time like the others suggest. It's an easy recipe and it tasted good the next day too.

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
These are very good. I did what others suggested and didn't use all the bacon fat so they weren't greasy. Sprinkled a little garlic powder on them after the water disappeared to add more to the garlic flavor. The onions got a little golden which added to the flavor. This was the first time I'd ever made green beans not from a can. They were crunchy which was different from what I'm used to. I loved them. I'd definately make this again.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
The flavors are ok but like another reviewer said, when you cook out all the moisure it gets pretty dry. I think I'd rather just make nachos using all the same ingredients.

Matt's Crab & Clam Bisque

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I didn't use fresh crab, instead I used the canned kind, which is what it asked for. This has a good flavor and it's almost like potato soup with a twist. I was expecting the potatoes to fall apart due to the cooking time but they stayed together pretty well...I'm not sure if they're supposed to fall apart because it's a bisque. Easy on the red pepper because a little goes a long way.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
I thought I'd add to the hundreds of comments about these scones! Delicious! I thought I'd screwed up the recipe for sure when I accidently added some of the baking powder to the sour cream instead of the baking soda...but the recipe was very forgiving. I also made half a batch because there is only two of us. It makes a lot. It tastes like a sweet biscuit. I added Craisins...which were great but next time, I'll experiment a little and add different flavors. I had never made scones before, so this was a real treat! Thanks Grandma Johnson!

German Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Fabulous! I didn't have German chocolate so I used semi-sweet and it still had a wonderful, rich flavor. I'm not sure if baking it for 45 minutes is too long, because the coconut got a little dark on top but when it was cool it set perfectly.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
Fantastic salad! I just couldn't add the 2 tsp. pepper because it just seemed too spicy so I added only 1 tsp. and it was still a little spicy...I can't imagine adding two. Also try this to make this salad even better: Take 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, 2 packages ramen soup noodles, crushed and 1/4 cup butter melted. Mix together and spread on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle this on the salad and it makes it really crunchy and wonderful.

German Style Kielbasa

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
Pretty good but I'm not sure about adding the 6 apples, I think three would be fine. We liked it but it is a little bland for me, my boyfriend thought it was too sweet. The good news is that it's a really inexpensive meal, that's what I really like.

Creamy Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
Normally in a pudding, you add some of the hot liquid to the egg yolk to heat it up and then you slowly add the egg yolk to the hot mixture. This recipe is different in the way that you mix things together and it caused little clumps of egg to be in the pudding. It would have had a nice flavor, otherwise.

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
This pie made my house smell terrific! I heard somewhere that a pie might get runny depending on the types of apples you use. I used Granny Smith. I also heard you can add a Tablespoon of lemon jello to the apple mixture to thicken it up, so I did and it worked. My pie wasn't runny at all. This pie has a great flavor, especially with the walnuts in it. Looks great coming out of the oven but after it cools it sinks down a little bit.

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
Awesome custard! I only wish it made more! I used mexican vanilla...yummy. It only makes about a cup of pudding but it's very smooth and tasty. So much better than the box! And just the right amount of sweetness.

Herb-Roasted Game Hens

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
This is the first time I've ever made game hens. I'm not sure how to serve them. Do you just put a hen on a plate or do you slice it a certain way? Anyway, I followed the directions except that I cooked it ten minutes longer than directed just to make a crispier crust. It didn't dry it out because I had put a little butter under the skin. I liked the herb flavor. Next time, I might not use basil and use rosemary instead. Smelled good in the oven.

The Perfect Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
This recipe is so amazingly good. Holy cow! You could serve this in a restaurant! You don't really need the onions.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
I've tried a recipe similar to this with chicken wings on the grill with the addition of brown sugar, soy sauce and mayo which is awesome but it didn't have basil and paprika like this dish does, which doesn't work for me. It gave it a funny aftertaste type flavor. I think finely diced green onion and crushed dried red pepper would work better as the spices.

Easy Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
I LOVE this recipe!!! It's easy and fun and best of all it tastes great. Guests at my house had no idea how I had made it and even if they were stuffed from the meal, the cake was irresistable. Thanks for the recipe!

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
My only question is "What were you doing looking through the pockets of a hobo?"...I'm sure there is more to the story, we'd like to hear it. Anyway, this is pretty good. Spicy of course but what would one expect a "blackened" fish to taste like? I didn't get a lot of juices from the pan to pour over the fish. I tried it over bread and rice and I liked it over white rice better. You can taste a lot of paprika, I might adjust that next time.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I don't know, maybe I'm just not a good biscuit maker. I followed the recipe exactly but maybe I should have kneaded the dough longer because although they were flaky (more like crumbly), they seemed a bit heavy for a biscuit and sometimes I could taste the faint taste of baking powder in them.

Caramel Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
I didn't like the sweetened condensed milk flavor in these. It just seemed obvious that it was in there when I was tasting it. These were chewy which I liked. I also liked someones idea about putting buttered baggies over your hands to roll the popcorn balls (great tip...made it so much easier and it didn't burn my hands). But I think I'll stick to the caramel popcorn submitted by Brian on this website.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
Great lemon flavor but I had a hard time getting them out of the pan neatly. Dusting them with powdered sugar after you cut them is a great idea.
