Ground Beef and Rice with Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
I used long grain rice and it was horrible, tough, pellets! Use minute rice. I tried to salvage the recipe by using a Progresso tomato soup which has more moisture than a condensed soup but the rice was still though after another 30 minutes. After using another can of Progresso soup, and more time on the stovetop, it was edible but not great. Perhaps it would be better with minute rice but I won't try this again.

Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
Delicious! I use sugar free vanilla pudding (1 oz.) vs. the 3.5 stated in the recipe. I rinse and drain all the canned fruit in my salad spinner adding the oranges last. I mix the vanilla pudding, 1 cup milk, and 1/2 cup light sour cream, and 1/3 c. OJ concentrate and refrigerate overnight. I refrigerate the canned fruit overnight and drain the extra juice the following morning. Mix the canned fruit and dressing together. Soak the bananas and apples in the pineapple juice and add to the salad before serving--the bananas do not keep well in the salad. Maraschino cherries are an excellent addition to the salad but they must be drained and rinsed separate from the other canned fruit otherwise the pineapple will turn pink. Loved by everyone! Thanks!

Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
I didn't have the canned chili and celery so I omitted them. I used 7 oz. of macaroni noodles which I had on hand and cooked for six minutes. The lack of chili made the recipe look dry so I added one 8 oz. can of tomato sauce and 1/2 c. hot salsa vs. 1/4 c. salsa. If you heat the ingredients on the stove, as directed, bake at 250 otherwise bake at 350 as recommended by others. Following the recipe instructions is the key to the bake time. With the addition of tomato sauce, I also added a 1-2 cloves of minced jarred garlic for additional flavor. I warmed in the oven then added cheese during the last five minutes of the bake time. The kids loved it!

Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
I had peeled and diced potatoes in the fridge for another recipe so I Googled the equivalent of two potatoes which resulted in 1 ½ cups of diced potatoes. I used garlic powder vs. garlic salt and added 1/8 tsp. onion powder. Next time, I would use diced onions in the recipe. So easy yet delicious!

Zucchini Cheese Garlic Appetizer

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
I didn’t have enough zucchini so I used a mixture of yellow squash and zucchini and it was older so I didn’t have to worry about excess moisture. I used 2 cups of baking mix and the parmesan cheese was grated not the kind in a shaker. I didn’t have sharp cheddar so I used mild cheddar. Another person mentioned that you can only use vegetable oil or it will be too greasy but I used canola and it worked well; no issues. I only had 2 T. of dried parsley and I added 2 tsp. paprika. At 25 minutes, it was gooey so I cooked it an additional ten minutes, a total of 35 minutes and it was more bread-like but not firm enough to pick up as an appetizer. I used PAM to grease the metal baking dish; I think butter would make it greasy. I served it alone or with spaghetti sauce. Perhaps it would make a better appetizer if it was cooked in a mini tart pan? Overall, it was a very good recipe.

Four Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
Using a plastic Ziploc bag, I added the ingredients from the last to the first. I put the spices in a bag, then the cheeses and finally the cream cheese. The only change is that I reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp. Once everything was in the plastic bag, I let the mixture sit overnight and cut the corner off the bag to pipe into the jalapenos. YUMMY!

Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
I decreased the ground beef to 1 lb. since I prefer a veggie/bean based chili. I used 1 lg. onion, 4 green chili peppers, 15.5 oz. drained and rinsed black beans, 15 oz. organic tri-beans drained and rinsed, 23 oz. spicy V8 juice, 14.5 oz. diced tomatoes with juice, 10 oz. original Rotel with juice, 1/2 c. heaping pumpkin puree, 1 T. pumpkin pie spice, 1 T. chili powder and 2 T. sugar. My intent was not to alter to the recipe only use what I had on hand since I'm moving and trying to clean out my cupboards. Initially, I tried to omit the sugar but it was definitely missing something so I added 2T. and it hit the mark. If you want a soupier chili, keep the lid on while simmering otherwise remove the lid. I will store in the fridge overnight and then separate into Ziploc bags to freeze for later. I will definitely serve over rice or noodles. Delicious!

Arkansas Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
Good, not great. I used canned beans. Next time, I will use either frozen or fresh. I also microwaved the bacon for two minutes before adding it to the dish to minimize the grease. Perhaps I will make this again.

Johnsonville® Apple Chicken Sausage Sweet and Sour Stir Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
First I prepared the long grain brown rice. My bag of frozen stir fry seemed skimpy for five servings so I added a can of rinsed and drained water chestnuts. As a e result, the sweet and sour sauce was too thin so I made more sauce using the Sweet and Sour Sauce I on this website. Delicious and freezes well. Next time, I would use two bags of veggies for all the sausages.

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
I decreased the recipe for 1-2 servings. I used one can of Campbell's Pork and Beans. Cut the brown sugar in half and omitted the onion since I used red wine garlic vinegar. I baked in the oven until thick, I'm not sure of the time but I didn't need to drain the beans and it was delicious! I cooked the bacon in the microwave for a minute to decrease the grease. It was a simple recipe that we enjoyed. I will make again.

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
A delicious easy to make pot roast. I seasoned it with the Montreal Steak Seasoning overnight. I used one cream of mushroom and one Knorr's beef broth. Added carrots, celery, and onions. Cooked on low for 8 hours. Removed the meat and veggies and added cornstarch and water; cooked on high for ten minutes to make a delicious gravy. Simple yet tasty. A definite keeper.

English Muffin Breakfast Strata

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
I had to make an unexpected breakfast with the items that I had on hand and this recipe was perfect and adaptable! First, I defrosted a 12 oz. pack of Johnsonville Chipotle Monterey Jack Cheese Chicken Sausage in cold water. Meanwhile, I buttered a Pyrex dish and put two halved whole wheat English muffins in the dish. I melted a little butter in the microwave and brushed the muffins lightly with butter (next time, I will omit the butter, the rest of the ingredients makes it creamy and the butter won't be missed). I halved and divided the cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese then I mixed the 4 eggs and ¾ c. light sour cream in a separate bowl and set it aside. I didn't have the chilies on hand therefore I omitted them. Next, I took the thawed sausages and cut off the skin, chopped, and browned/cooked in a pan. Since the sausages were frozen, I probably only used 10 oz. of meat after I skinned and ground them. We each ate one serving (1/2 of a muffin plus all the goodies) and refrigerated one serving each for breakfast the next day. DELICIOUS! It was a perfect leftover! I cooked at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Next time, I will probably decrease the cooking time by 5 minutes since the edges were brown. But, still YUMMY!

Olive Cheese Melts

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Very good. Better with a stronger bread like rye versus sourdough. I tried it with both and disliked the sourdough bread taste although it's my favorite and the rye was better. I won't make this again...sorry.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
I lined my two aluminum cookie sheets with foil and laid 1/2 lb. of bacon on each pan. Cooked for 10 mins. on each side at 350 and I drained the grease in between and it still wasn't done. I cooked another 10 mins. and it was done. Not crisp but done and good. A simple acceptable way to eat and serve bacon but not my favorite method. I will use this again for simplicity.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
The onion powder was too strong so I would it omit next time. I also like potatoes with lots of moisture so I only baked them for thirty minutes resulting in perfectly moist, creamy, mashed potatoes.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
Omit the salt. Use a plastic ziploc bag to mix the deviled egg ingredients. Add an extra egg yolk to make it creamier. The remaining ingredients should be heaping; not exact. Cut off the end of the bag to squeeze it into the egg.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I have made this only with Original Red Hot Sauce and chicken in the slow cooker and everyone loved it! Great on top of a salad with ranch or blue cheese dressing too! Definitely a keeper!
