Haluski - Cabbage and Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
I used this recipe as a base from directions I was given by a Polish man how to make this. I did not have to bake it at all, so I skipped the last steps but I did use the ingredients listed here and added some pulled pork and some bacon. I fried the onions and the meat in the butter, then broke up the meat, added the cabbage and some water and covered to cook about 10 minutes-- meanwhile boiled the noodles, drained, and added to the pot, stirred well before serving. My family loved it, had seconds and is scarfing the rest for lunch. How can you go wrong with cabbage? Yum.

Swedish Meatballs (Svenska Kottbullar)

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
These were very good. Well worth the time and effort put into them. I did not have allspice on hand so I added a little cinnamon instead to the nutmeg and they were very good. I did not have beef broth-- used chicken instead and still delicious. I like it when recipes like this can be flexible. My family loved it! Thanks for your authentic recipe! I asked a real Swede for her recipe and I knew it was not real when it had cream of mushroom soup in it. This is the REAL DEAL!

Slow Cooker Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
This was really good, and very healthy (I did not put the lard in (did not think it was necessary!) I swapped out ham for a smoked turkey leg instead. I halved the amount of spices and added in 1/2 tsp of creole seasoning. I meant to add a chopped jalapeno pepper, but it got lost somewhere between the store and my kitchen! The onion, bell pepper and celery make this soup great! I used turkey broth frozen since Thanksgiving and it turned out fantastic! And like most meals, better on the second night of leftovers.

Angela's Easy Breaded Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Yep, it's that easy. I do put chicken in a zip lock with the dressing, though-- it makes it faster and less messy. I use home made bread crumbs which makes it taste better than store-bought. I don't bother to flip the chicken mid-way through cooking. It doesn't matter I have found. But I do bring the chicken to the top rack in the oven to "broil" the chicken about 5 minutes at the very end to make it crispy and golden. My family loves it-- and we have chicken parm this way about once every other month.

Jenny's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
I make this about once a month because my family loves it so much. I double the stewed tomatoes, Texas Pete hot sauce, and the rice (cos it’s cheap to make it last!) I never use turkey sausage—only local smoked pork sausage made in Conecuh County, Alabama. I usually use boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts. I make my own chicken broth, and it makes a big difference. I also add a pound of frozen okra. I know peeling shrimp is a pain, but it’s worth it!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
Way too salty. But my stepson loved it. I said, "too bad we can only have this 'anniversary' chicken once a year" and he said "Why?" and I said, "Because there is too much salt in it to eat it more than once a year." So I gave the recipe to him so he can make it in college.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
I made one loaf with pecans and raisins, and one loaf without for my stepson. This bread is so good it did not last the weekend! I will be making this again! Thanks!

Down-Home Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
This was awesome-- so delicious and perfect for New Year's Day. I did read the comments and added 2 cans of stewed tomatoes, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1/4 tsp of powdered garlic, 1/4 tsp of dry mustard. I used ham steaks cut up instead of a ham hock, and cut the salt in half. I also used two cans of blackeyed peas instead of dry. I recommend the frozen okra-- great touch. I put it all in the crock pot for 4 hours on high. It came out perfect.

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
This was great! So easy, thanks reviewers for the tips on baking and cutting and oiling. My first batch did not crisp enough, so the next day I just put them back in the oven again for six minutes and that made them perfect. My daughter loves the cinnamon and sugar kind.

Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
Gouda does not melt very easily so do shred well. I added powdered mustard for some zing, cheddar and Parmegean cheese to tone down the Gouda cheese. Added more flour to thicken up the milk, so I would reduce the amount of milk to 1.5 cups. Different spin on Mac & Cheese made this dish good.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
This was the best tuna noodle casserole we've ever eaten. I did not salt it too heavily, and I did cut down on the butter a little bit. I doubled the peas and used baby bella mushrooms (on sale) and they were perfect in this dish. The extra sharp cheddar on the bread crumbs on top was fought over when this dish became leftovers! Very good!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
This really came out well. I used scissors to cut the corners of the noodles off so they would fit in the crockpot better. I also added spinach as a layer and olives. My husband loved it and we ate off of it for a week!

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
Ultimate comfort food! I rated it a four because I changed it to make it a five, and it was still easy! I made it with flat, fat thick noodles instead of spaghetti. (I think the Amish made them.) Added garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, italian seasoning, and lemon pepper which was recommended. Then instead of water, bullion cubes and butter, I added 2.5 cups of chicken stock (this is where the flavor is!) that was previously made from scratch and frozen. Also, I only put in about three chicken breasts worth of meat. I substituted in some stir fry veggies with broccoli, carrots, peppers, etc. I also added sliced mushrooms and added ground up cracker crumbs on the top of the cheese. Since this casserole was so juicy, I did not bother to cover it up in the oven. I just kept my eye on the cheese to make sure it did not get too brown. My family went back for seconds. Yummy!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
I also doctored up this recipe based on reviews by adding wine, beef broth, etc., cooked it in the crock pot and ate it over noodles. My family enjoyed it and the leftovers were scarfed up. Banner day and great recipe!

Skillet Apple Brownie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
Very good! I omitted the nuts and regretted it, but my stepson does not like nuts. So next time I'm making it with raisins and nuts! I like the chewy edges, so maybe I'll make it with just one egg, not two. This is a very sweet experiment. I cut the nutmeg in half and used no cloves since my family does not like gingerbread. The cinnamon was just the right amount. This is great for breakfast coffee cake if you cut the sugar down a little. Will definitely make again and again in many different variations. Thanks!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I also made this in the crock pot with Guiness and it came out very well. I put it on low for about 8 hours and it was perfect. Can't say whether or not the brown sugar made a difference or not? Next time I will probably just skip the sugar.

Adrienne's Overnight Barbecued Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
This was a winner. My husband said he loved it more than pork BBQ in the crock pot with the BBQ sauce added later. So I'm thinking I will use this recipe and add pork instead of beef next time. I think I will omit the 1/2 cup of water since it was not really needed. I did not use the cornstarch but I did drain off 2 cups of the liquid and froze it to use somewhere else in another recipe! So delicious! We don't come across 5 star recipes very often, so I have to thank you for a great recipe!

Broccoli Fish Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
This is very easy to change around to make it different every time by adding and subtracting. I made it with cream of mushroom and spinach and it came out really well. I will try it with broccoli next. I found though it would probably be better to wait to put the chees, bread crumbs and butter topping on in the last five minutes so it does not spread out all over the place. My husband gave it a 4.5 star, my son gave it a 3, but he's too picky. I gave it a 5. Good dish! Will make again!

Creole Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Very good except for the salt. I put in less than half required, and now I'm trying to soak up the salt with potatoes this morning! Too much salt! Also, I soaked the beans for two days, and then had to cook them on low in the crock pot overnight in order for the beans to soften up. 4 hours on low was not enough time for these beans. But overall great flavor in this dish.
