Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
I would make this again. It's easy and cheap. After reading the reviews, here's what I did differently: Added chopped onion. pressed garlic and sliced mushrooms while browning meat. Used 1 bouillion cube and 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. Everything else was the same. Oh, I did just keep adding worchestershire sauce to taste. This dish was certainly thick enough to serve over toast or biscuits this way. I served mine with mashed potatoes and peas however. It's just what I had on hand.

Aunt Nancy's Grape Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
Okay, I just wanted to add my review of a very similiar recipe. It contained 2 packages of seedless red or black grapes, 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped pecans. The cream cheese and sugar gets blended together with the pecans and grapes being folded in until coated. It is a wonderful fruit salad that just happens to have just grapes. I know it is a preference thing but I've had sooo many people ask me for the recipe. Nancy's recipe sounds great too...if not a little "lighter" with the whipped cream instead of sugar. Anyway, hope you enjoy.

Sweet Party Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
This was fantastic! One change I would make for myself is just using a larger disposable roasting pan for mixing. Other than that, super-easy and delish! Editing to add that I boil the corn syrup, sugar mixture for about 3-4 minutes. Also, the last time I made it, I used 4 cups of rice chex and 4 cups of wheat chex. It made for a nice crunchy mix that was just sweet enough. Very good!

Bubble 'n' Squeak

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
I love cabbage and bacon and potatoes and even ham! This dish just couldn't get any better for me. There is alot of chopping involved so to cut time, I bought the bag of shredded cabbage and a package of cubed ham. Please don't do what I did and think 'more has got to be better'. Just use 3 slices of bacon for 6 servings. As good as it is, more can simply overpower the dish. I did what some of the other reviewers did and served this with fried eggs. This really is comfort food at its best...especially on a cold, cold day.

Shieldzini

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
I would suggest using english cucumbers (fewer seeds) sliced on the diagonal, adding a few green onions sliced on the diagonal...optional but good, and substituting sesame oil for the vegetable oil. It's also good with a small sprinkling of sesame seeds too. My mom makes it this way and she's Japanese. It's fantastic!I checked with her today and she doesn't add sugar or rice wine vinegar. I always thought she had....at least added the vinegar I mean. I plan on making cucumber salad today as my side to teriyaki chicken and rice. I will try the vinegar because it sounds like a great balance to the other flavors. Enjoy it any way you make it. Cucumber salad is the best.

Macaroni And Cheese II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
I sometimes make a mac'n cheese using the cheddar soup as well, but I like this one better. The one thing I will still do, however, is use cheddar flavored fried onions on top.

Creamy Peanut Towers

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2004
Try this with Nutella (hazelnut chocolate spread) without butter. It is fantastic. I would recommend, for visual effect, to use dark wheat bread alternated with the white. Yummy!

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
Okay, this gets a five stars but I took liberties with the ingredients. Here's what I changed: 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni, 12 oz. canned chicken;drained, 1-10.75 oz. crm of mushroom soup, 1-10.75 oz. crm of chicken soup, 3 cups of shredded sharp cheddar and 1/2 can of milk. I tossed in some frozen peas as well and just covered the entire dish with the french fried onions after it had baked for 25 minutes. All the cooking directions remained the same. I love this!...and so did my kids. My youngest son even went back for thirds. Wow. Thank you Lindsay.

Coconut Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
Amazing pie!!! Quick, easy, and delicious!!! I give it 5 stars following the recipe and 5+ stars with a few changes...I used 2qty 3 oz instant coconut cream pudding mixes instead of vanilla, made sure to use 2 cups of whole milk (we only drink non-fat in our house...whole milk was much better), toasted a 7oz bag of sweetened coconut flakes (added flakes to the pudding/milk/whip cream mixture without measuring and used the rest on top). The pie shell I used was Mrs. Smith from the freezer section...Follow the baking directions in package to be sure it won't bubble up on you. I also waited just until serving to add topping of whip cream and toasted coconut so it wouldn't get damaged while in the fridge.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
It just gets better and better each year! To fill my round crockpot, I use 5lbs of Russett potatoes. The morning it is to be served, I add pats of real butter and pour in some milk and stir & set it on low for 3-4 hours. This year I used whole milk and it made a world of difference--we usually have only non-fat milk in our house.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
This is the only way to make mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving! Not only does it save you time on Thanksgiving day, but it tastes great as well. Even better, I keep mine in a crockpot and reheat on low after adding butter and milk. Now my oven is free for the turkey and stuffing!

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
Although people at the party liked them, it was not at all what I was expecting. I found it a little bland and had too much of a mayo flavor. (I don't like mayo.) Also, all the beautiful colors from the individual ingredients just got muddy after mixing them. I was very disappointed. It just didn't look nice anymore. Maybe spreading the cream cheese and then sprinkling the ingredients on it before rolling will help. I'll keep my eye out in the reviews to see what others may have done.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
Easy, easy, easy and great flavor. I've made it 2x so far. The 2nd time I wasn't as careful measuring the mayo and ended up adding a little too much. I noticed because I'm not a big mayo fan, but it was still good. I'll be sure to be more accurate while measuring the mayo because it was a better balance of flavors the 1st time. I also used 1 cup of freshly grated parmesan and 1/2 cup of Panko. Nice addition of flavor and texture to the crust.

You've Gotta Be Kidding Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
This is such a great recipe! I've only had the opportunity to make it twice, but plan on making it again soon. The first time I used regular mayonnaise and loved it (and so did everyone else that tried it!). The second time I tried the "healthier" olive oil mayo and was disappointed. It just didn't taste the same. I'll stick with the regular mayo from now on.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
We LOVE this recipe! I used hot Italian sausage instead of ground beef and added garlic to the onion. I used Ragu's Chunky Tomato, Garlic and Onion spaghetti sauce. I prefer it's sweeter taste to the other saltier sauces. I also loved the idea of using a pasta with ridges to "hold" the sauce, so I used mostaccioli pasta. No matter how many times I've tried Ricotta, I end up with the same opinion...It's just not for me. I do, however, love the sour cream. Thanks for making it a part of your recipe Colleen. Reading the reviews, I decided to layer the dish with pasta, meat sauce, provolone, sour cream, pasta, mozzarella, meat sauce, and Parmesan...and cover with aluminum foil. BTW, we did try it following the original recipe, but prefer the changes made because it suits our family's tastes better. Thanks for sharing Colleen!

BLT Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
I love the idea of a BLT wrap, but try as I might, I can't get mine to look or taste as good as the original BLT on plain white bread. It is good, however, I like the regular better.
