Island Kielbasa in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2003
This was ok. I cut the brown sugar down to 3/4 cup as others suggested and served this over rice. It was still sweet and the ketchup flavor was very evident. My 4 year old ate the pineapple and rice, my husband ate it, but asked that I don't make it again. We prefer our kielbasa cooked in barbeque sauce.

Black Joe Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2003
While this cake isn't overly chocalately, it's a very moist delicious cake that doesn't even need frosting. Even my husband, who isn't a big cake fan,loved it! Delicious with ice cream!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
This was my first time ever eating irish soda bread, and it was wonderful! I didn't have buttermilk so, as another reviewer suggested, I put a tablespoon of vinegar per cup of milk to substitute. I made the bread one night, wrapped it in aluminum foil as the directions stated, and served it with corned beef and cabbage the next evening. My husband,daughter and I all loved it!

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
I made this recipe to put over fresh strawberries. Since a couple of the reviewers said the whipped cream was not sweet enough, I doubled the powdered sugar to 2 tablespoons. It was delicious! I will definitely use this as my whipped cream recipe.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2003
This is a very good brownie recipe! This is great for anyone who prefers a fudgy brownie, which I and my family do :) I didn't have any nuts, but mixed in mm's semisweet baking bits I had in my pantry. They are good, however next time I would really like to try adding some regular milk chocolate chips. I think mix-ins add a lot! I read that one of the reviewers used a pie plate, so since I didn't have a square 9 inch dish (only an 8 inch) I used my 9 inch pie plate. I had to add 10 minutes to the cooking time, but the brownies still turned out wonderfully!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2003
This was delicious! I served it for the first time when my mom and grandma were in town. We all loved it, including my 4 yr old daughter whose favorite chicken is "chicken tenders". I have to add though that like some of the others, I pounded the chicken flat. I also added extra seasonings that my family likes, such as Morton's Nature seasonings, season salt and extra pepper. This recipe is great because there is a lot of room for experimenting. You can add a dash of this and a dash of that and it turns out great!

Oven Fried Potatoes II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2003
I served these potatoes with the chicken fried chicken from this site, and they were delicious! I'm not a big fan of anything lemon, but my mom and grandma were visiting, so I decided to make these because it seemed like something they would like. I ended up loving them, too! I used Morton's Nature Seasoning, and I only had bottled lemon juice, so that's what I used. I was surprised that the lemon really added such a good flavor. These will be a regular at my house!

Yummy Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2003
The one recommendation I would make is to kind of chop the artichokes a bit more than quarters. I bought the marinated, quartered artichokes and made the dip to serve on tortilla scoops, but the artichoke quarters were large. Others who tried it really liked it, but agreed that the artichokes needed to be kind of chopped more because some bites were just the cheese and mayonaise.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2003
I normally make a Betty Crocker banana bread recipe which my family and anyone who tries it, absolutely loves. However, it calls for buttermilk -I just sour regular milk with lemon juice- and I was low on milk. I decided to use this site to find a milk-free banana bread to make with my extremely overripe bananas. I was so excited to try this recipe when I read all the reviews. I really thought it was going to be delicious when I smelled the wonderful banana smell wafting through the house. I have to say that it didn't come close to my other banana bread recipe. My husband agrees. We both agreed I won't be making this again.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
These cookies are the best! My 4 year old daughter helped me make them, until it came time to put them on the cookie sheet- at that time she couldn't resst eating the cookie dough and was kicked out of the kitchen. :) My husband said everything about this cookie was perfect and wanted this to be a regular in our house. I used m&m's semisweet baking bits and the cookies really looked "cute" with them. Like another reviewer said, you can't tell when these are browned. I cooked them 10 minutes and when I took them out they were a bit mushy. However, after sitting for the recommended 5 minutes, they firmed up. They are a soft, chocolately cookie and I love the oatmeal texture. I didn't know about cinnamon and chocolate together, but the combination is wonderful! Really great, easy recipe :)

California Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2003
I had a small bag of premade cole slaw- minus the sauce-that I wanted to use. The recipe on the back of the bag for the "sauce" sounded really bad, so I visited this site. I made this recipe minus the peppers and onions because I didn't have them and just used the cabbage and shredded carrots in my cole slaw mix. I allowed it to marinate overnight as suggested. I was going to have it as a side for tuna sandiwiches, but ended up using it as a topping on the sandwiches. It was REALLY Good! My 4 1/2 year old even liked it! It reminded me of having a sub shop sandwich-YUM!

Can't Get Enough Caramel Cookies!

Reviewed: May 3, 2003
I learned the hard way that you CAN'T use GENERIC oats- use name brand or you will have a crumbly mess! With name brand oats, this is wonderfully addictive!

Tanya's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: May 6, 2003
These cookies are WONDERFUL!!! They beat my other recipe hands down! They are moist with a wonderful taste and texture. My whole family loves them. My husband brought some to work, and there were requests for more. By the way, I didn't have any almond extract, so I just made them with the vanilla extract. I'm looking forward to trying them with the addition of almond extract. ****Following up 6 years later to say I did make them with the almond extract the next time, and the time after that, and the time after that....This is my most highly requested cookie recipe. The real secret is to take them out when they look not quite done. They will cook as they sit outside the oven on the cookie sheet, and will be crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.

Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: May 16, 2003
My family and I really liked this chowder~! I did follow the suggestions and used a cup more water than called for, and it was still thick, but good. I used all 3 cups cheese because we absolutely love cheese. However, it did make it a little more like a dip and less like a soup, so I will only use 2 cups next time as other reviewers suggested. What I LOVE about this recipe is you can literally use whatever veggies and whatever cheese your family likes most. You can't mess it up! I used frozen and fresh veggies, but I think next time I will add more. I will also not simmer for 20 minutes, but only about 10 minutes until crisp tender, as the veggies get even softer when the chowder has to boil again. I look forward to experimenting with this recipe in the future as this will be a regular for us!

Nordy Bars

Reviewed: May 21, 2003
This is a fantastic bar cookie/brownie! My husband and daughter agree :) It is delicious as is, but I could easily see it without the nuts and marshmallows and it would still be delicious. The only issue I had was when I mixed the egg in after removing the pan from the medium heat - next time I will allow the mixture to cool slightly before adding the egg, because the egg cooked a bit. It didn't affect the end result, but I didn't like having cooked egg in the mixture. When I took the bars out of the oven, they looked very raw in the middle, but I took them out anyway. After about 2 hours they did firm up and were perfect. I personally liked them even more the next day! I can see bringing these to gatherings and bake sales with great success!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 26, 2003
These pancakes were really good. I used an additional 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 the amount of salt, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp almond extract. I think it was the vanilla and almond extract that made the pancakes taste really good. I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour the pancake batter on the griddle and the recipe (with my addition of 1/4 cup more milk) made 10 pancakes. They were very good leftover.

Deep Dark Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2003
I know there are already a lot of reviews, but I'll add mine :) This cake and frosting recipe is the absolute BEST!!!! I have never had luck with frosting- past recipes have come out grainy or the sugar overpowers the flavor. This frosting turned out so delicious~! I didn't have any problem it being runny- I just added a little bit of milk at a time assuming that I might not need it all. I did end up using all the milk and my frosting had a "whipped" effect. It wasn't the least bit runny. I don't think I can ever eat a cake mix or canned frosting again without thinking of this recipe!

Husband's Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
I had to change a lot of things with this recipe, but it was worth it! All of the revisions came from other reviewer suggestions :) I made taco seasoned ground beef, then added the tomatoes and since the meat was seasoned I added no salt and just a pinch of sugar. I changed the layers, as suggested, and put the noodles on the bottom,hamburger next, cream mixture next (an ounce more cream cheese, 1/2 c more sour cream), then cheddar cheese. I covered with foil for first half the cooking time and removed it for the second half. It was truly DELICIOUS once it was made with the CHANGES. I have a picky husband & 4 year old and they both gobbled it up and had seconds! It was just as good rewarmed the next day!

Hot Sausage Links and Beans Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
I will not make this again, sorry. After cooking for 45 minutes in the oven, the beans were mushy, the potatoes were mushy and the cheese was a bit crusty. What made it worse was the work and mess involved. From now on I will do it my old way- mix beans, bbq sauce and sliced sausage links in a dish, pop in the oven for 20 minutes along with a pan of cornbread and enjoy.
