Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Wow is all I can say about this pie. I made two of them this year for Thanksgiving, completely unaltered from the original recipe and it was fabulous. I used store bought pie crusts to save time (I worked an 12 hour shift 11am-11pm the day before so I didn't have a lot of time to work with haha!) and found the pie easy to assemble, lattice crust and all. All my friends and family loved the pie and my husband who is not a fan of sweets or pies at all said it was the best piece of apple pie he had ever had. This one is a keeper, I am on the recipe again to make a few of them for Christmas now! I may try altering a few things this run but all in all, this is one solid recipe.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
I can't believe how good this was. I was searching for a new way to help use up my leftover Easter ham. This was definitely the way to do so! I didn't have time to use a slow cooker so I just did it on my stove top in a dutch oven. It worked well. I also used left over ham instead of the ham hocks but other than that I kept everything else the same. It was flavorful, filling and my kids and husband loved it! I even enjoyed the left overs for a few days afterwards! Thanks for the recipe Grammyrose!

Aw-some Cole Slaw

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
Well, this is it - the perfect cole slaw recipe (in my humble opinion). I have made it 4 times now and just love it - it is always best on top of pulled pork sandwiches. It does remind me of KFC's slaw but I like it much better because I prepared it myself and feel confident in eating it!! It is sweet with a good bite and I seriously can't stop eating once I start. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Portobello Bellybuttons

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Very good, I followed the recipe except substituting chicken stock for the white wine, which I didn't have. My family enjoyed it and the left overs were very good - I even fed a hungry coworker who thought I was Martha Stewart! : ) I recommend this one! : )

Zucchini Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
I made this recently (truthfully I made it TWICE in one week it was so good) with great results from the recipe. I have a big abundance of zucchini in my garden (like always) so I thought it would be the best way to use it up right? So only thing I did a bit differently is I only used 1/4 cup of vegetable oil instead of the 1/2 cup. It still turned out moist and delicious. I also mixed in half the chocolate chips in the batter and then sprinkled the other half on top of the cake. My kids loved this and my 10 year old even helped me by grating the zucchini with a box greater. It was not stringy at all. I also used two 8x8 pans to bake it the second time I made this and brought one to work with me. It was gone in a few minutes and with rave reviews!

Naan

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
So, I will be honestly, this was the first time I have ever used yeast in anything. I was a bit intimidated but my craving of naan and being too pregnant to drive the 2-3 hours it would take me to get it kind of made me do it. Well, it worked wonderfully, I didn't have a grill pan and was too chicken to brave the scary outdoor grill with bread so I decided to through it in hot skillet as directed instead of the grill pan. It worked well and we ate it all! Plus I didn't have to drive to satisfy my craving! And I got over my fear of yeast too! Soft, warm, melting in your mouth this was amazing naan!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
One of my favorite dishes to make with hamburger. I love this during the winter, comfort home cooked food at its best. I don't use the sherry, it turns out fine without it and I double the amount of the gravy I make so I can serve it over homemade mashed potatoes. My husband and kids just love this one, they are always super excited to get this for dinner! Thanks Anne Marie, it is a recipe I will use over and over again!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
I have used this recipe dozens of times now - I don't really care for raisins but I crave an good oatmeal based cookie and I think this is a good middle ground. I do add a bit of vanilla, cinnamon and a bit extra oats - usually 1/4 cup. But these cookies always turn out fabulous. I stick with the shortening, I have terrible luck backing with real butter, it never turns out right. Anyways, great recipe Sheryl, I really enjoy them and so does my entire family!! : )

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
Okay, I am pregnant, hopefully not for much longer but the first 3 months of my pregnancy this is basically all I could eat. I ate it for breakfast, dinner, lunch and in between for snacks. I made this like it was going out of style and I always had the ingredients on hand. 100x better than the store bought stuff, amazing on basically anything - carrots, sliced red and green peppers, sugar snap peas, naan bread, pita chips, you get the idea. I would try fresh basil or cilantro instead of parsley but it all came out yummy in the end. Do I still eat it this much? Eh not really, I am extremely burned out on hummus not BUT that doesn't change the fact that this recipe puts easy and high quality hummus on your table without a lot of fuss. And it kept me and the new baby going in a time when I couldn't eat anything else!!

Fruit Pizza II

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
Fruit pizza, identical to the kind I use to get in the grade school cafeteria as a child. This was always what I used to look forward to in school so I was super excited to recreate this recipe! Yummy but it is a bit more complex and time consuming than whipping together a batch of cookies. I save this recipe for special occasions because of that. I also like to take the store bought dough and cut them out in little circles - making individual fruit pizzas, which makes for a really impressive presentation.

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
Tried this tonight, it was fabulous. I doubled the recipe since I was wanting left overs for a meal tomorrow and baked the whole thing in a pre-heated cast iron skillet. I actually only put half the butter in the batter and the rest I melted in the skillet before I poured the batter in. I also sprinkled a tiny bit of brown sugar on the top as well. It was crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside with plenty of flavor and paired perfectly with the veggie soup we had tonight. Totally made me feel like a master of the cornbread! :)

Easy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
I adore this recipe. I throw all the ingredients together (without any extra salt and I use low sodium soy sauce) in a bag and let it marinate all day long. Once I forgot about it and left it in the marinade for 3 days and even then it turned out fabulous. I cook it as directed but always check the internal temp. Sometimes I turn on the broiler and let the marinade really carmalize during the last few minutes of the cooking time. I haven't grilled it yet but I bet it is good that way too. It is so tender and juicy and the flavors are amazing. I pair this with oven roasted potatoes and veggies. It is always a easy meal that my entire family will eat.

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I made this two nights ago for dinner. I want to say I made it exactly as written but I would be lying. I followed the reviewers suggestions and added a can of diced tomatoes (along with the fresh spinach - this mom does what ever it takes to get her kids to eat their veggies!) and cooked the orzo in 2 cans of low sodium chicken broth, which I didn't drain because the orzo sucked all the broth right up. I also only had whole wheat orzo so that is what I used. I finished up the recipe as directed. The results? A very flavorful and deliciously healthy recipe that my entire family loved. My husband surprised me the most, he loved it and requested we have it again soon and he is not into healthy foods at all. I will probably continue to make it with those modifications because my family enjoys it and that is all I can ask! A really great base recipe though! :)

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
It's not often a new recipe has my entire family wowed but this one did just that. I followed this recipe exactly as written except for using half the amount of butter called for and French onions instead of using bread crumbs - both because that's what I had on hand. I have slightly picky kids so I did chop the veggies up fine. My husband and kids absolutely loved this dish. I've made the canned soup version before and it didn't fly, this version is great! It's also easily customizable and you could add more veggies too. My hubby even reported the left overs were even better the second day. I'll will be adding this one into the rotation! It's delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!!!
