Sweet Potato Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
My folks thought it was wonderful. I don't like nutmeg so substituted butter nut vanilla flavoring for the nutmeg and used butter nut vanilla flavoring and milk in the glaze. I have made 3 in 2 days. We took one to a function and everyone was asking for the recipe. Thanks for a recipe that will be used over and over at our home!!!!!!!!!

Vanilla Wafer Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
This is DELICIOUS!! Made it to share with older people. My Mom wants to know when I will make it again. My boss (who is a former caterer) thinks it is delicious, but wonders what it would taste like with chopped cherries. My little 89 yr old blind friend immediately wanted another slice. Took a slice to my brothers shop and he hid it so he wouldn't have to share with his employees. I didn't think about them but did take them some. Got a phone call asking me to make another. :). So, with that said, I might try it again and put cherries and black walnuts in it. I loved it.

Summer Squash Casserole with Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
I have made this several times and never have leftovers. I cut back on the butter to 2 T. and use light mayo and it still comes out yummy. Still making this casserole but now I leave out the butter totally and do not use sugar. I cut 2 or 3 slices of bacon in half and lay on top. When the bacon is done, the casserole is done :).

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
We thought this was fantastic. The only thing I changed was I used green onions. Also made it for a few functions. I always bring home an empty bowl

We really enjoyed this, but the 2nd time I made it, I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. Was not quite as sweet and still delicious.

Beef Yakitori

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
haven't tried this but I have a very similar recipe that I also put 1/2 tsp white pepper in. Got the recipe in Okinawa when we lived there for 3 1/2 years. Yakitori (in Okinawa) was always done with chicken. This marinade is also wonderful on grilled steaks, chops etc.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake II

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
Delicious cake even tho I tweaked it just a bit. I used 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup oil. I had instant cheesecake pudding on hand, so used it instead of the vanilla. I also used 2 cups of frozen blueberries so it cooked longer than the 60 minutes. I just kept a close check on it. I also used a lemon glaze cause I didnt like the idea of a blue glazed cake. My husband has requested this to be made more often :).

Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Even tho I thought the coffee sounded wierd, and I HATE coffee, I gave this a shot. I am really glad I did. It is delicious. I did add some onion slices to it. I also added a little wine, cajun seasoning and little soy sauce. The gravy was delicious,and the meat was really tender. The left over meat I shredded, mixed with the gravy and had on toasted buns the next day. A keeper at our house!!

Firecracker Casserole

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
delicious as written, but I think next time I may use corn tortillas and mix part of the tomato/cream of mushroom soup in with the hamburger to make it less dry. May try Mexican cheese blend also. Thanks lajune!!

Orange Balls II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Delicious. First time I did as directed, but second time I forgot to put the butter in, and actually they did better, and I really like the taste better without the butter. Thanks for a new Christmas tradition cookie here :).

Uncle Jesse's French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
How in the world can you rate a recipe if you haven't tried it????? Two stars huh? I make mine different also, but IF I was going to rate this recipe, I would at least try it. If I decided I didn't like it, then I would post MY recipe up for people to read and try. Because I don't really like cloves, am only giving this a 4. Really, I am just trying to say...STOP being stupid people!!!

Potato Squash Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
These were good but really bland. The 2nd time I made them, I added 1/3 cup parmesean cheese, 1 jalapeno pepper chopped small and1/3 cup chopped bell pepper. For the salt and pepper I used cajun seasoning. They had a much better flavor with these adjustments :)!!! Thanks for a really good idea!***squash season again and I tried using frozen seasoned hash browns. YUMMY!

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
I love this cookie. Have been making them since I was a kid. In fact we used to call it Mack's (my brother) cookie because he was always asking for them. Some things other than coconut that you can add are raisins or extra chopped nuts. At Christmas I make these and before they get set I will put half candied cherry on them to give them a little extra pizazz. Oh...and I am in my 50's. :)

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
I also nuked the hotdogs a bit before putting in the shells. I added a little cheese to the dogs before wrapping. My nieces (6 and 10) loved them.

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I quit wrapping cherries when I had 130 wrapped. I still have some dough in my freezer. Luckily I had the extra chocolate chips for all the extra cherries. Giving it a 4 because the doughm, cherries and chocolate just dont add up correctly.

Chocolate Cherry Cake I

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
I originally found this recipe in a cookbook from Western NC. It uses almond extract also. Gives it more of a chocolate covered cherry taste. Still a delicious cake tho.

Garlic Dill New Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2005
We felt that the potatoes needed steaming just a bit more. It was an alright side dish. If I make this again, I will add minced onion for a little more flavor.

Quick and Easy Refried Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
I don't eat the ones in the can...they are nasty sooooooooo wasn't sure if I wanted to try this or not, but needed some type of veggie. My hubby and I thought they were delicious. I didn't drain them and didn't put any lime juice on them because we don't like the flavor of lime. We like them a bit on the soupy side and that is how they turned out. For the amount of work they took, I should have given them a 5. Next time I just might put cheese or sour cream on them.
