Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
OH my, it is way sweet enough...just lacks any discernible pecan flavor...tastes like melted brown sugar and nothing else...

Poor Man's Hamburger Steaks

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I used what I had on hand, 1 can cream of mushroom and 2 cans beefy mushroom soup, 24 wheat crackers and left over fresh mushrooms and onions from steaks we grilled yesterday. I browned the patties first, but I do not feel it was necessary to add to the flavor, but it did get rid of some of the grease and there was still a great deal of grease after baking for 50 min....I used 80/20 beef and an oil separator along with white paper towels to remove the excess grease. The flavor was awesome and I will make it again. It is in the "Clean Plate Club" per hubby's empty dish...I think if I put the patties in the baking dish and cook for about 30 min..without the soups and then drain and add the other ingredients that may help with the grease problem..Also may use a can of tomatoes drained or stewed and see how that is...I will cut the milk to a half cup to firm the patties up some...

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
EXCELLENT, made exact the first time...second time I used an ARM ROAST is has more beef flavor and less fat and is very tender when cooked this way, I added 1 cup low sodium beef broth, 1 pkg of dry "Italian" dressing mix & 1 pkg. of dry "Knorr Au Jus" and the rest of the ingredients per the recipe. I make sure the liquid covers the meat and use additional water if needed, shredded it for sandwiches & Beef Burritios.....NOW IT'S OFF THE RICHTER SCALE !!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Very good, made exact per recipe the first time. I thought the dumplings were a little doughy and clumpy, so I used flaky biscuits the second time, sprinkled them with flour and rolled them to a small pancake size & quartered with a pizza cutter, this was better. When you remove the chicken to shred or cut up, put the biscuits in and then the shredded chicken on top to sink them into the hot liquid. I also used one can of cream of celery soup for more flavor and about 1/4 c. of cream (you can use milk) and a squirt or two of lemon juice to give it the butter milk flavor. If using butter milk biscuits, they need to be cut across the middle (as if you were buttering a cooked biscuit ) and then flour and roll them out before putting in the slow cooker. It seems the contents of the slow cooker is to low temp to cook them properly (like trying to fry something in oil that is not hot enough) so they just turn into half cooked doughy biscuits. Next time I am going to boil them in chicken broth and then add them & broth to the slow cooker... This is how I normally cook biscuit dumplings... Any left overs, add some mixed veggies and it makes an awesome chicken pot pie...I just made 3...

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
Made 1 batch exact per recipe using choc. chips and then using chocolate chunks...they were just o.k. they had a grainy sand like texture that I did not care for, not much flavor other than the sugars in the recipe. I used W.Sonoma vanilla and fresh dry ingredients....will try some of the others here. next time...
