Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
My husband and I had this for supper last night, and it was great. The whole house smelled so yummy. The only thing I changed, well really added, was I mixed 1/3 cup of soy sauce with 1/2 cup of water and 2 tsp. of corn starch mixed it together and put it into the steak and pepper mixture during the last 2 minutes of cook time to thicken up the sauce.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
I made these for Thanksgiving this year, and will probably be making them every Thanksgiving from now on. For the filling, I used the suggestion of others and made a cream cheese frosting. They went so fast that it made my head spin. The kids and adults loved them. I told my nieces and nephews that you have to shout "WHOOPIE!" when they eat the Pumpkin Whoppie pies. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

Apple Cider Sauce and Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I made these chops tonight. Whew, they were so yummy. I tweaked the recipe a little bit. I cored and peeled 2 Red Delicious apples and sliced them up very thinly. Then I peeled and sliced 2 onion. I sautéed them in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper while the pork chops were browning. I also added the sherry to the apple cider concentrate. When the chops were ready to go into the oven, I poured the Worcestershire sauce over them and then about 2/3 of the cider concentrate/sherry mixture. Then I spooned the sautéed apple/onion mixture over the chops. I sprinkled about 1 Tbs. of Worcestershire sauce over that, and then poured the remaining cider concentrate/sherry mixture over that. The chops I used were rather thick, so I baked them for 35 minutes. My husband gobbled them up and said I could make them again anytime. A keeper for sure, thank you.

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2005
This was a good recipe. I used about 3/4 of a cup of the bread crumbs. 1 cup would have been too much. I used about 6 Tbs. of butter to get all of the bread crumbs covered. It could have used a little zip, like some chopped onion and green pepper. The chicken was nice and moist and I liked the gravy/sauce that the cream of chicken soup made. I'll make it again with the zipping it up ingredients. Thank you.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
These were pretty good. I don’t know if I'd make them again. I thought the crumble topping would be a little more crumbly. Perhaps I over mixed it. I've had better homemade blueberry muffins.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
We had this with grilled bratwurst tonight. What a wonderful combination. At first I thought it was going to be too sweet, but as the flavors began to blend and cook a little bit I realized I was wrong. I wouldn't change a thing. My husband especially liked the flavors. We’ll save this in our tried and true cookbook. Thank you.

Mexican Layered Dip

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
This recipe was great. I took the advice of other reviewers, and added the taco seasoning mix to the sour cream and to the refried beans. About 2/3 to the refried beans and the remaining 1/3 to the sour cream. It was devoured in about a half an hour at our Mother's Day gathering. Thank you Rusty for this definite keeper of a recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
This recipe was awesome!! I prepared it the night before and put the crock in the fridge. It ended up cooking for about 10 hours on low, which was fine. My husband loved it. I tried mine w/ lime flavored tortilla chips...very nice. It added a nice Caribbean twist to it. We're making it for Super Bowl Sunday. Thank you for a yummy, easy, and quick recipe.

Congo Bars I

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2004
I've made this recipe twice. Both times I used butter instead of shortening. I prefer the richness of the flavor of butter. Next time though, I'm going to cut back on the quantity of chocolate chips. The two cups, kind of dominate the nice flavor of the butter and brown sugar. These are a huge family favorite on the 4th of July. Thank you.

Irish Chicken and Leek Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2004
It was pretty good. My husband went back for seconds, which is a good sign. I would however, cut back on the number of leeks, and lengthen the cooking time by about 5 to 10 minutes. It was rather soupy, so I might cut back on the the heavy cream by half as well. The flavor was good, but four leeks way over-powered the taste of the dish. I will try it again, but with the tweaks I suggested. Erin go bragh.

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
These came out great. I cheated though and used a dairy case ready-made piecrust. I added a tablespoon of raisins, and about a teaspoon and a half of chopped pecans into the center of each apple. My husband really loved these apple dumplings, especially when served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Apple Walnut Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2003
This salad was a huge hit with my guests. They all wanted a copy of the recipe. I think the ratio of onions to cranberries is right on. We're making it a new traditional presentation on our Thanksgiving table.
