Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
Very good casserole. Made excactly as written except for one small change. My bacon was frozen and I was tired, didnt feel like defrosting and cooking it so I used real bacon bits instead, so glad I did. And made it that much simpler to make. Don't add more eggs as other have sugested. I baked it for 1 hour and it set perfect and was golden brown on top. This is a keeper.

Southwestern Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
I think this would be better with some other sauce. I made this excactly as written. Tip make your sauce and taste it, if you do not like it then do not ruin it by adding it, find something else that you like and add that instead.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
I made this excactly as written. It's so sweet it's sickening. Imagine taking a big bite of warm cream cheese frosting over and over.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
Hmm three stars for me. Although this dish is easy and cheap to make to me it is lacking something. I did follow some other reviewers suggestions. I recently went to a gathering and a friend from chicago had made this. Hers had banana peppers and alot of au jus sauce, and wasn't such a vinegar taste. I though it was good so looked for the recipe. For mine I used pepperoncini with juice, au jus mix prepared, galic cloves, and dry italian dressing mix. It smelled off when i put it in the slow cooker. 8 hrs later i shredded the beef (it fell apart easily) smell wasn't as bad let cook for another hour. Put it on steak roll with provolone cheese. Cheese melts right away. But I am not bonkers over the taste, maybe I should have added beef broth as well I don't know. So I'm disappointed after waiting 9hrs to try this. Although, I am pregnant and what taste good one day taste rancid the next, so that might have something to do with it.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
This was fairly good. Super easy to make. I forgot to get italian dressing so I had to make my own, not a biggy but I think it was to oily. I will try this again using the store bought dressing. I also used sweet baby rays bbq sauce. Hubby liked the meal.

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
I did not care for this recipe. I dont know what went wrong. My berries may have been a little tart. I did follow others suggestions to brush a little beaten egg on bottom crust to keep from getting soggy, mixed the berries with the sugar and flour till completely mixed, dotted with butter, brushed little egg on top and sprinkled with sugar. The filling was thick like paste. My husband tried to eat a piece he said it had a metallic taste, I used a glass pan. A shame cause it looked beautiful. Oh and I used store bought pillsbury premade rolled dough, so I know That wasnt it.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
These were good, easy to make. I did double the eggs and flour, and did 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice. My husband liked them, his only complaint is he wished the crust had been more crunchy. But I didnt mind the crust, I will probably make these again if I don't find a better lemon bar recipe.

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
This is awesome potato salad. I also did the cider vinegar/sugar poured over the hot potatoes will they were draining, I used a magic bullet to mix the mayo, relish, garlic, mustard, and I added a few slices of dill pickles. Used 5 eggs, salt and pepper, yukon gold potaoes peeled and chopped before boiling, nothing else and it is so delicious!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
This cake is very dense and heavy. It has a good flavor but everyone I served it to at my b-b-q commented on how dense it was, the guys laughed and made jokes like this is survival cake, or all you need for a meal is this cake. I could not even finish my piece. So I think I will move on to try a different carrot cake. It doesnt taste bad just to heavy.
