Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This recipe was a huge hit at the last family gathering. Both my Mother and my Grandmother asked me for the recipe! After a few trials I've found that the key is to 1) coat the apples in cinnamon and sugar before wrapping 2) Use 2 parts white to 1 part brown sugar in the sauce. simmer until it makes a thick, rich caramel and pulls away from the side of the pot. then add 1 tsp. vanilla along with the cinnamon. With these tweaks the dumplings were not soggy at all as some reviewers had mentioned. Thanks for the great post!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I love this recipe! It's great as is but whenever I buy a bone-in ham I make a stock from the ham bone and use that instead of the water and chicken bouillon. I just roast the bone in the oven for an hour and throw it in the crockpot with onions, carrots, celery, s + p and water. It's best if you let it simmer overnight. Using the homemade stock I find that I don't need any other flavors or seasonings and it's always a HUGE hit. Thanks for the great recipe post!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I followed a few of the suggestions of the other reviewers and added 2 chopped chipotle peppers, oregano and a tsp. low-sodium taco seasoning to the tomato mixture. I also pre-cooked the rice in beef broth, added garlic to the sauteing onions and added corn, peas and carrots for some extra veggies. I mixed in sharp-cheddar and topped with a slice of monterey jack cheese. Hubby says he'd eat them again and he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy. I gave it a 4 as I think it would have been a bit bland without the other additions. Thanks for the recipe!

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I have tried this recipe exactly as written as well as tired it with a few of the modifications that were suggested by other reviewers and I just can't bring myself to like it as much as other cabbage roll recipes that I've tried; sorry. I think it may be the lemon juice in the sauce, there was an odd tang that I did not enjoy. Great cheap and easy meal idea though!
