Mom's Cucumber Salad
Oh my gosh! Excellent recipe. I was afraid there wouldn't be any left for dinner because I couldn't stop tasting it. I did follow the suggestion and salted the cucumbers for about an hour, then drained and rinsed them, then patted dry with a paper towel. I forgot to slice the skin off and they were fine. I didn't have seasoned salt so I used Mrs. Dash's salt free seasoning instead. And I substituted splenda because I'm diabetic. The recipe was a huge success. I had just enough mayo for the two extra large English cucumbers I used. They probably equaled four regular. I've always made cucumber salad with just Italian dressing and this recipe is so much better. Thanks so much. I'll be making this often.

Grandma's Ground Beef Casserole
I needed a recipe for ground beef and this looked simple. My husband and I both liked it. Lots of flavor. Although, I could see my younger grandchildren not liking the sour cream and onion. I'll definitely make this again, but I'll use garlic powder instead of garlic salt as I thought it was a bit salty. My husband didn't agree, he liked it as is. The only change I made was using kluski noodles (heavier noodle) instead of egg noodles because that's all I had on hand and I didn't have quite the 8oz. so there was more sauce and sour cream mixture than would have been. Oh, and I didn't wait until the sauce mixture was room temp. I just didn't have the time. I don't see where that changed anything. My only criticism is the amount of dirty dishes necessary to make the recipe. On the up side, it's a do ahead kind of meal and I can see where you can add various vegetables to make the dish more interesting. I'd add some zucchini or eggplant to kick it up a notch. I would even feel comfortable serving this to company. Just add a loaf of good Italian bread and you're good to go.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole
I made this last night for my family and everyone loved it except my daughter who hates broccoli. But even she said it was a good recipe. I did change a few things. 1. use only 1/2 cup milk for a less soupy consistency 2. I didn't have any cheese sauce so I substituted Tositos queso sauce. In my opinion I think this took it up a few notches. Excellent flavor and it comes in mild, medium, or hot. I used medium and it was perfect. 3. I also used a suggestion I found on here and sprinkled a row of crushed Ritz crackers and melted butter although I think it would be good either way. I gave this four stars instead of five because I did make those changes. Overall a great recipe that I'll make again.
