Taco Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
I have been making a very similar version of this dish for decades. It was my children's favorites, and now all three serve it to their families! The only difference is that I add a small can of drained pinto beans to the salad, we use Cool Ranch or Nacho Doritos (crushed), and I add some PicoPica or Taco Bell mild sauce to the french dressing. Really jazzes up the flavor! And no, you can't refrigerate this overnight with the chips. When I take this to a potluck or other type of shared-meal event, I always wait to add the chips until I arrive, just before we eat. I usually place the dressing on the side, too. This is still a family favorite, especially in the summer, and I only gave it four stars because I think the addition of the flavored chips and adding the hot sauce into the dressing really adds to this recipe.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2014
I've been making this recipe for 40 years! Passed down to me from my Grandma Alderson, who said she got it from the back of a JiffyPop bag!! When my daughter was in high school, I made several batches of this (each batch makes a considerable amount) to send with her youth group on a mission trip. Many of her friends still remember me as the 'Caramel Corn Lady'! One tip...don't use generic brown sugar. It tends to granulate more and just doesn't taste as good. I always use quality, name brand light brown sugar. Also, please, PLEASE don't use margarine for this! No reason to waste good ingredients by using margarine. =)

Cookie Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
My dear SIL introduced this recipe decades ago, and it has become a family tradition. My kids (especially the males) fight over the leftovers every time I make it. The most important tip is to use Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies. ONLY Keebler cookies, as they can hold up to the moisture in this salad and won't get soggy. It's actually best when you make it at least two hours ahead. But, as my boys can attest, even the leftovers are delish!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
My youngest son loves Manwiches, but my hubby isn't wild about them. Tried this and it's a winner with everyone! I doubled the recipe, and made extra sauce, substituting a little Famous Dave's sweet BBQ sauce for some of the ketchup, and reduced the brown sugar from 6 tsp to 4. PERFECT! After combining everything, I put it in a small crock pot and let it simmer on low for about five hours. Made a really quick and delicious family dinner. This is a keeper....
