Crispy Corn and Rice Treats

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2004
I used to make this all the time when I was younger for sleep-overs, only we called it Puppy Chow (that's what it looks like!!). I couldn't remember the exact recipe, so I'm glad I found it. It's just as delicious now as it was then!! ONE QUICK TIP: put the popcorn in a large paper bag, and gradually pour the mixture in, and shake to coat. Makes it uniform, and less messy!!

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
This was my first time not using a box stuffing, and I was thrilled with the outcome. I did cut up two french bread loaves into cubes, brushed them with butter, and baked them until they toasted, and it had just a hint of crunch. The taste was fabulous!! My only complaint is it didn't make very much, definitely not 10 servings, but maybe my family just takes bigger portions!! I'll double the recipe next time, because I will use this recipe every time I want to make stuffing!! Good-bye Stove-top!!

Smothered Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
All in all, a good meal!! I normaly hate pork chops, but my family loves them, so I decided to try this recipe. Since I live in Louisiana, I definitely had to season the pork chops with some cajun seasonings and added a little to the sauce. The sauce came out great, very creamy, and you couldn't really taste the pork chops (which I liked!!). Definitely try this if you need a quick dinner that doesn't taste quick.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
Very easy to make, and the taste is perfect. Two hints though: #1 Don't skip the pastry bender. It's so much easier and the dough blends better. #2 To take the struggle out of getting the crust into the pie pan, take a large piece of wax paper and put refrigerated dough in the middle. Put another piece of wax paper on top, and roll out to desired size. Peel top layer of wax paper off, flip dough upside down in pie pan, and peel the other piece off. No breaking, sooo easy!!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2004
This was the first time making a apple pie from scratch. I used the Basic Flaky Pie Crust from this site, which I recommend. I also added cinnamon and vanilla, which added a little flavor. The caramel mixture was pretty thick, so I mixed the apples with it before putting in the crust, and brushed the rest on top. The taste was wonderful, but a little tart, so I may experiment with different types of apples. Delicious with vanilla ice cream!!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
Best meatloaf I've ever tasted!! I took others' advice and used bread crumbs instead of crackers (that's all I had) and put half of ketchup mixture on bottom and other half on top. Make sure you use VERY lean beef, or it will be too greasy. My husband said it was better than Cracker Barrel's meatloaf, and that's a big compliment!! Great with mashed potatoes and fresh snap beans!!

Caramel Peanut Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
WOW!! This recipe required a lot of work (especialy unwrapping all of those caramels), but in the end it was totally worth it! The result is delicious, not exactly like a Snickers, but just as good. Very rich though, so if you don't like things too sweet, this is not for you. I sent it with my husband to work, and he said the guys were oohing and aahing like a bunch over women about it! Will definitely make it again, but when I have plenty of time to do so!!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
Snickerdoodles are my absolute favorite cookie, so I was hesitant to try a different recipe than my grandmother's. Sorry grandma!! This is by far the best snickerdoodle recipe I've ever tasted. 11 minutes and they were absolutely perfect, chewy in the middle and crisp around the edges!! I sprinkled a little cinnamon and sugar miture on top as soon as they came out of the oven too. Also included these on my Christmas cookie plate for the neighbors, and got rave reviews!! Thanks so much, will keep these in constant stock at my house!!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
These were not the best chocolate chip cookies I'd ever had, but they were pretty good. I tried it without using any of the recommendations listed. The dough part was kind of bland, so next time, I'll add salt and baking powder. However, I made these for my christmas cookie plates that I passed out to the neighbors and EVERYONE has asked for the recipe, so maybe I'm just being a tough critic!! WARNING: THIS RECIPE MAKES A TON OF COOKIES-so beware!!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2003
The only reason I gave this recipe four stars is because I ended up doing a lot of tweaking based on other recommendations. I ended up with a WONDERFUL meal. I took the following suggestions: I added chopped onion and garlic to meat mixture before browning. I added a can of cream of mushroom soup to French onion soup, and mixed in a small amount of brown gravy mix to give it some color and thickened it up a bit. I omitted the ketchup and doubled the amount to pour on top of garlic mashed potatoes. For those who had trouble keeping the patties together, try this as was suggested before. Instead of cooking in a skillet, place browned patties in a foil-lined casserole dish, pour gravy over top, and bake at 400 for 30 mins. Your patties will stay together nicely!!

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2003
I too was skeptical when I tried this recipe. It does require a lot of prep time, so I suggest making it the day before. It was worth it though, the flavor was wonderful. I also added a little medium salsa to the meat mixture for an extra kick. The only thing was the tortillas were very soggy, so I'll probably use less sauce next time. Also I had a lot of cheese mixture left over and chose not to put it on top of the prepared enchiladas, maybe I will next time. Overall, very good meal, even my husband who's not a big fan of Mexican loved it!!
