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.

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
This cake is wonderful by itself but for the frosting you can take a 12 oz. carton of thawed whipped topping, a 6 oz. carton of raspberry yogurt and 1/3 cup confectioner's sugar and mix it together. Slice the cake horizontally in to thirds and fill with the cream mixture and then frost the entire thing. Add some fresh raspberries on top and you have a fantastic dessert! Keep the extra in the refrigerator. Scrumptious!

Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Great chicken! I only used the small 1.5 pint bottle of vegetable oil because that's all I had. It was enough. I dipped the chicken in milk to get it wet, then in the flour, back in the milk and back in the flour. It gives you "club" fingers but it makes the crust crispy. Next time I'll add onion powder and garlic salt for an extra kick in the spices. I kept the burner on medium heat since I didn't have a thermometer for oil.

Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I appreciate that this is simple and full of flavor. If you want a different spin on meat and potatoes, this is it. It smelled so good while it was cooking. I thought the flavors would be so-so but the beef bouillion mixed with the onion, salt, pepper and beef juices blends together nicely. I don't know why you layer this dish except for maybe having the hamburger on the bottom might keep the potatoes from burning.

Breakfast Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2007
I had family in town and made this the night before and it was nice to just put in the oven the next morning. They loved it! My cottage cheese hating soon to be father-in-law ate three helpings before I told him cottage cheese was in it.

Orange Fluff I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
I made this for a Bunco party because I wanted to be the first to serve "Jello" with the meal...why? I guess because it's All-American-Down-Home-Cooking and I was serving pot Roast (the awesome crockpot kind from this site) and new potatoes. It isn't a surprise that everyone loves Jello and a few people asked me for the recipe. I guess if you don't like cottage cheese you won't like it but otherwise it's great...and so easy to whip up.

Key Lime Pie VIII

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
I thought this would taste a bit like instant vanilla pudding but it doesn't. It tastes very close to regular baked key lime pie and I didn't think it was too tart, although I did use regular limes. It's very easy to make. I had to add some green food coloring because otherwise it is yellow...which is fine too. I also used a graham cracker crust where I crushed 1 cup of graham crackers, added 3 Tablespoons white sugar and 5 Tablespoons melted butter. Mixed it together and pressed it into a 9 inch pie pan. I cooked it at 325 degrees for 5 minutes and let it cool before adding the filling. Great recipe. Thanks!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
My boyfriend didn't want me to make quiche but after I made this he ate two helpings. I'm giving this 5 stars because it tastes good and I love love love that I didn't have to make crust!

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
Mmmmmm....cheesy! I had to make my own salsa with rotel tomatoes, onions and green chilis because I didn't have enough salsa but it worked great! I served it with some Bush's pinto beans, but next time I might just add them to the casserole because they rounded the meal out really well.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
I had a surprise visit from my boyfriends family and I made this recipe because I had all the ingredients. My boyfriends father wanted the recipe. It isn't like traditional chicken enchiladas but it's pretty easy to make. The flavors blend well and I like the concept of the rolled flour tortillas with the cheese on top. You definately need a knife to cut them while eating.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
Just like my mom's Zucchini Bread, except she uses 1/2 tsp. baking powder instead of 1/4 and adds 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. Great classic recipe!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
I chose to make this recipe because I had only 2 ripe bananas and most recipes call for 3 or 4. I'm glad I made it because it's fantastic. The best banana bread I've ever had. It is lighter and a bit cake-like. I have also made muffins from this but baked them for only 20 minutes.

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
Very nice moist cake! I used the idea from another recipe on this site (Cherry Angel Food Cake)and added chopped/drained maraschino cherries at the end and folded them in. I wanted to use this recipe because it was 5 stars and I'm glad I did. Even without the cherries it would be great! I agree with the other reviewers that said 40 - 45 minutes is too much time. In was already getting pretty brown in 30 minutes. I was worried taking it out that early but had I kept it in it might have been dry or too dark around the edges.
