Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2004
Awesome! I sprinkled a little cinnamon and vanilla between the layers of apples because I love the flavor of both. This is a VERY good apple pie! Side note - do NOT overfill the dish with the butter/sugar mixture. If it drips onto the bottom of your oven - it WILL burn quickly.

Cabbage on the Grill

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
Awesome! I added a bit of seasoning salt instead of plain salt and used coarse black pepper. You can also add a tsp or so of Olive Oil to the packet and it seems to help it cook a little faster. I make this quite often in the summer!

Elaine's Sweet and Tangy Loose Beef BBQ

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
I made this recipe this weekend for the Ohio State / Indiana game. I put 4 pounds of chuck/pot roast in the crock pot and covered with water and French onion soup. I had to cook it for about 4 hours before it was done enough to shred. I then saved ¾ cup of the broth in case I needed it (which I did). I used all of the ingredients as listed and did not adjust since I made 3 pounds less than what the recipe called for. I then poured in the ¾ cup of broth and let it cook in the crock pot over night. The beef was very tender and the flavor was really good. We ate probably about 15 sandwiches at least and I still have some left. I only had white wine vinegar so that is what I used, next time I think I will make sure I have straight white vinegar to kick up the tang a bit. Otherwise, REALLY good!

Potato Casserole IV

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
This turned out really good. I thawed the hashbrowns in the microwave and only used cream of chicken (2 cans) because I don't like mushroom soup. I baked it at 325 for an hour because I was cooking a ham and it turned out perfect. I did have one request (out of 8 people eating it) to cut the onions in smaller peices, but everyone else said they were fine. I added a couple dashes of pepper and used a couple dashes of sea salt instead of the regular amount of salt it called for. I'm making it again today!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I made this recipe for the Ohio State/Michigan game where we had a big potluck. Everyone loved it! I made it the night before in my crockpots inner pan and put that pan in the fridge overnight. The next morning I put it in my crockpot on keep warm for a few hours before the party. It worked perfectly! You have to be careful that your crockpot doesn't get too hot though because the edges did start to brown a little bit. Other than that - it was perfect! I doubled the recipe and since I had about 3/4 cup of sour cream left over from my cheesy potatos that I made I went ahead and threw that in too. It was great, easy to make and I'm getting ready to make it again right now!

Company Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. It was so creamy and had a ton of good flavor. I reheated it the next day and it was still just as good. I had a little broccoli in the fridge so I tossed that in too. I am on a low carb diet so I just left out the bread crumbs. This is now one of my favorite low carb side dish recipes! Not to mention one of my favorite side dishes PERIOD!!

Peppermint Patty Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2003
I couldn't find mint chips at my grocery, so I bought mini semisweet chocolate chips and peppermint extract. I melted the chocolate in a double boiler and added 1/4 tsp of the extract while the chips were melting. As per other ratings, I let the dough refrigerate for 1/2 hour to 1 hour before rolling into balls. The dough was still a little sticky, but nothing that was a pain to deal with. I found that a whole tablespoon of dough was a little too much as they do spread when baking, so I used about half of that. I didn't roll them in powdered sugar again after baking. This recipe made wonderful, soft cookies. That yummy melted patty in the center is just great! I didn't have a problem with any "gooey mess" on my cookie sheet either. I did use York Peppermint Patties and not the cheaper brand like others suggested. Everyone LOVED these cookies!!!!!

Sweet And Sour Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
I'm so glad this site has reviews because I knew what to expect. I too thought that the chicken mixture was runny so I formed meatballs and put them in a pan and baked @ 375 for 25 minutes. Then I let them simmer in the sauce for 10 minutes while the rice was cooking. I let the sauce simmer the whole time. Before stirring in the rice I removed the meatballs and thickened the sauce a little with some cornstarch and water. All in all it turned out very tasty. I think it would be great with cubed chicken breast also but I eat so much of them already that the meatballs are a nice way to change it up! :)

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2003
I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. It was very easy and the finished product exceeded the prep time. It took me longer than the listed cooking time to get my breasts done, but they were pretty big. Total time in the oven was 40 minutes. My husband LOVED this and my mother in law commented on how wonderful the house smelled when she stopped over. I did add some basil, oregano, onion salt and black pepper to the bread crumb mixture and I used Romano cheese instead of parmesan because that is all that I had. ********** -- 10 stars!

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2003
This was a little thicker than I like, so I added a 1/2 tsp. more milk and it was perfect. I put it on cut out halloween cookies. Yummy!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2003
I made these in a Halloween theme. They turned out great! I didn't have enough butter so I used butter flavor shortening instead and they still turned out great! My dough was a little more crumbly than I like, but that could be due to the fact that I used shortening instead of butter. I fixed that by keeping a small bowl of milk on my table and rubbing some into the dough when needed. I used a thick butter cream frosting for these. They were great!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
I doubled the recipe to make some for my friend at work who loves homemade breads, but didn't realize until I was almost through the second part that I only had 3 eggs instead of 4. I was too lazy to go to the store so I stuck with 3 and the 3 loaves that I got out of this recipe still turned out great. I added a little cinnamon to the batter and also coated the pan with a cinnamon/sugar mixture. This gave the crust a good, sweet crunch. My 2 year old had 2 pieces of this for breakfast the next morning and I had 3. We toasted it in the toaster and put a little butter on it while it was still warm. I had to cook a little longer since I put it in 3 bread loaf pans instead of 4. Overall, VERY YUMMY!!

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2003
I took a previous reviewers suggestion and added cinnamon chips to the batter. I think this added a good taste, but could be achieved just as easily with regular cinnamon in the batter. I did use brown and white sugar in the struesal topping, but that is just because we like ours really sweet! I didn't add the topping until the last 10 minutes of baking and it got nice and crunchy. I took this to my mom's birthday brunch and it was the only thing that there was none left of! My dad (the coffee cake conisueur) said it was perfect!

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2003
My husband bought me a brand new grill with all the bells and whistles for my 25th birthday so I wanted to cook as many things on it as I could for a cook out that night. I came across this recipe and because of all the wonderful reviews decided to try it. They were wonderful! There were 7 of us eating and everyone enjoyed them. I used italian sweet onions, seasoned salt, garlic powder and coarse black pepper. The grill smelled wonderful when they were cooking and they were soooo easy! I did double wrap them in foil and next time I will only use half the butter (but I think I went overboard in the first place) I ran out of cooking spray when I was halfway done so I rubbed olive oil on the foil for the rest - I had no sticking. I will definetly make these again. There are SO many different things you can do with them!! They cooked in 26 minutes and the last 4 minutes I put them over direct fire to get them a little crispy. Wonderful!!!

Cinnamon Pancakes in a Jar

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2003
I am 7 weeks pregnant and crave pancakes every Sunday morning. This morning, my husband would not take me to get them, so I searched the internet for a recipe that I had all the fixin's for. This is a wonderfully easy recipe and can be made with the common things in your cupboards. My 2 year old loved them too! I hadn't planned on doing the jar gift thing when I first read the recipe, but now that I know how good they are, I just may do it for Christmas with some homemade maple syrup. These would be really good with a fruit syrup of some kind too. The only thing I did change was adding the extra milk, I sifted all the dry ingredients together and added some pure vanilla extract. Since I didn't make the whole jar recipe, I just halved the dry ingredients and kept the egg and oil the same, adding the extra 3/4 C milk.

Chicken Paprikash I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I wasn't going to review this because I made so many adjustments to it, but after tasting how it came out when I made it, I had to. First, I'm on a very strict diet, so I can't have a lot of fat. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets and pounded them to about a quarter inch. Then I browned them in olive oil. Removed from the skillet and followed the recipe as stated with the onions, paprika, wine and broth except I doubled them because I love sauces. Then I returned the chicken breast cutlets and simmered until they were done. I did not add the sour cream because of my diet, but I just poured some of the thickened sauce on top of my chicken and it was AWESOME. Full of flavor and what a great flavor it was! I had it with asparagus and I dipped my spears in the sauce on my plate. I can only imagine how good and flavorful this is when made the RIGHT way. Awesome recipe!

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2004
Awesome cookies! I made these because my chocolate chip cookies are famous at work. A co-worker asked if I could make Snickerdoodles as well as I could chocolate chip. I have never made them, so I searched and found this recipe. They melt in your mouth with a satisfyingly crunchy outside. I did not have maple sugar so I used a mix of white sugar, brown sugar and a small amount on cinnamon to roll them in. I also stirred about 1 tsp of pure maple syrup into the sugar mixture. Not sure if it helped, but it worked! Also, I do NOT use margarine for anything, so I just used the same amount of melted butter. I always use melted butter in recipes - it's the secret to soft cookies! Awesome! I will definetly make these again!

Uglies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
It's really cold outside right now (-20 with windchill) and I didn't want to take my 3 children under 7 out in the cold. My cupboards are bare so I did a recipe search for ground beef because I knew I had some. I stumbled across this recipe and thought, "those just sound weird..." about 10 minutes later I thought, "hey, I'll try it...." I only had flaky biscuits, which kind of worried me, but they turned out great. These are really easy to make and I didn't think they were ugly at all. Actually I thought they were cute. My kids asked what we were having and I told them, "ugly muffins" which they thought was funny. My 6 year old ate 2 of them and my 4 year old at 3! My fiance wasn't home so he didn't get to try them, but I thought they were really tasty for how simple they were. I didn't roll out the dough, I just pressed it flat. I also just eyeballed the BBQ sauce, just enough to moisten. I look forward to making these again for my kids and trying the idea of making them with eggs and sausage! Definetly a very cool little recipe!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2003
I have now made this twice and both times it was great! I made some for me at home the first time( I am 5 months pregnant and get cravings!), the second was for a potluck at work. Everyone loved it! I do recommend making the dressing 24 hours in advance and letting it all meld together, this definetly makes for a wonderful flavor. Also, letting everything (besides the seeds and bacon) refrigerate for a few hours once you DO stir in the dressing really lets the dressing soak into the broccoli. I just add the bacon and sunflower seeds right before serving and then mix it all up. This is definetly one of my favorite recipes from this site and I don't even like raw broccoli!!
