Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
Delicious! Made it for the first time to take it to a ladies Bible study and everyone raved about it. So simple to make. I used regular vanilla instead of Mexican. And you can now buy the crescent rolls in sheets also, so no rolling is required. Would be easy to half the recipe too because the sheets are perferrated in half. Mine took about 10 mins longer to bake. Best if eaten soon after making, while the topping is still a little crunchy. So yummy!

Very yummy! Good warm, but I think it was equally good served cold.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
The BEST pancakes!!! Me & my 2 little grandkids really liked them (added mini choc. chips :). Next time I'll add a little more milk because the batter was very thick. I also think the yield was a little off unless they are very small pancakes. Just the 3 of us ate a whole batch. Will definately need to double the recipe if making for company. This recipe is a KEEPER!

Fiery Pork Skewers

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
DELICIOUS!!! I followed the recipe as written, but used black pepper instead (1/8 tsp, because I don't like much heat). I used thicker cut pork chops, and I marinated for about 2 hours. And I added pineapple in between each piece of pork. Served over rice. This is definately a keeper!!!

Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
I thought this was excellent! The only changes I made was that I used two cloves of garlic instead of one, and I used about a tsp. of dried basil, instead of fresh, and I used about canned tomatoes (about 1/3 can). Very yummy!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
This was absolutely amazing!!! I did as someone suggested and removed the meat towards the end of the cooking time and put the juices in the freezer so that I could easily skim the fat from the top, and then put the juices back in the crockpot with the meat to warm it back up. A whole lot less grease that way. My roast was very fatty, so I had to spend some time cutting off the fat. I disagree with those who thought it was too salty. I thought it was perfect. Perhaps they used regular table salt. I went to Whole Foods and bought Palm Island red gold sea salt (product of Hawaii), which comes in a 6 oz ziploc pouch for $3.99 (my store didn't carry the black). I used a 7# pork roast and didn't add any extra salt or liquid smoke. Put it in the crockpot before I went to bed and turned it when I woke up (it was falling to pieces after only 9 hours). Left it for an additional 8 hours before removing the fat from the roast and putting the juices in the freezer. I made this for a Hawaiian luau and not a bit was leftover (darn, I was hoping for some leftovers!)

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
This is absolutely THE BEST caramel corn I have ever eaten. Very easy to make. I didn't change a thing. This is one recipe that doesn't need tweeking. I have been asked for the recipe so many times, and someone even told me I should sell it.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
This was absolutely DELICIOUS! I fixed it for company and I made the remark that it was as good as any rotisserie chicken you buy in the store (I LOVE the store bought), and my guests said, "Oh no, this is BETTER!" Everyone loved it. Great recipe! Will definately be making again.

Shuku Shuku

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
Well, I think you should add the flour to the ingredients! When I was making this and read over the instructions, it didn't say to add the flour. All it said was to roll it in flour. When I mixed the egg yolks, sugar, and coconut, I KNEW it wouldn't hold a shape, so I decided the flour has to be added to the mixture. I thought the cookie tasted okay, not great...pretty dry, but it was alright. And the kids I made it for liked it, so it seemed to be a hit with them. I rolled the cookies in powdered sugar after they were baked and cooled some. By the way, if anyone is looking for unsweetened coconut & superfine sugar, Kroger sells their own brand of both.

Chicken Pot Pies with Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
This was delicious! The crust is just like KFC's potpies. I made mine in a casserole dish, and I used closer to 3 cups of chicken broth (that's 1 1/2 cans) & it was just the right consistency. And I used frozen mixed veggies instead of just carrots. I omitted the swiss cheese, although I'd like to try it with next time. I will definately make again, but next time I'll cut back on the amount of pepper (a little too hot for me, but it'd be great for pepper-lovers).

Grilled Vidalia Onion Soup

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
This was absolutely delicious & so simple to make. I didn't change a thing. It's important to pour it all to a serving bowl immediately otherwise the cheese will stick to the foil. We added garlic onion croutons to the soup before serving. Mmmm.

Surprise Meringues

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2004
This is the exact same recipe I've used for many many years. In fact, it's the first cookie I ever made. I triple the recipe (but only double the amount of choc. chips). I bake mine on double thickness of paper towels, rather than parchment. Makes lots of cookies, but boy, they go fast. I get compliments every time I make them. My very favorite cookie to take anywhere. But beware, they are very fragile!

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2004
We thought this was pretty good, but I didn't have any Italian salad dressing and used herb & garlic marinade instead, which made it pretty overpowering. But my husband said it was good. Please PLEASE peel the skins, as the directions state! I followed someone else's suggestion and didn't peel. Maybe theirs had more tender skin, but mine was TOUGH and there was no way you could chew it.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
These were delicious. I didn't add the frosting because of some of the reviews. I followed some of the suggestions and used 1/2 white, and 1/2 brown sugar, and added a cup of chocolate chips. And I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9x13 baking pan. This is a keeper recipe!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2001
This was delicious! Very similar to the good thick dressings (that sell for $2.99) that you buy in jars in the fresh produce section of the grocery stores. And this is much much cheaper---plus it's homemade. This is going to part of our Christmas dinner. A keeper!

Yummy Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2001
This was great! Makes 6 servings??? Maybe if you're eating them as a snack, but it goes a LONG ways as salad croutons. I found it easier to make 1/2 batch at a time, and to first put the bread cubes in a large bowl and pour the oil (I substituted 1/4 cup olive oil & 1/4 cup melted margarine) over the cubes and then add the seasoning and mix well, before placing them on the baking pan. Will definately add this to my list of favorites!
