The Original Fantasy Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
I've been making this for 30+ years, and I've never had it not set up. I've done both the microwave and the stove top versions. I made some today on the stove top. I used a large pot, more like a dutch oven than a saucepan. Always get it to a full, rolling boil before starting your timer (a rolling boil being one that boils vigorously even when you're stirring). Give it the full five minutes. I've never used a thermometer. I like to pour it into two 9 inch pie pans when I'm giving it away as gifts.

Great Grandma's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I was so puzzled when I mixed up the flour, sugar, and egg since it was dry and crumbly. The recipe said to "pour" it over the peaches, so I thought it should be wet, like batter. But, I dumped it on top of the fruit and spread it out. Poured the butter over and made sure it was all covered. I used my 9 or 10 inch deep dish pie plate, and it just fit. It was fantastic! My husband loved it, too. I might try adding a little cinnamon next time, but it's 5 stars as written. I love the old time recipes. My mom's cooking was from the 40s and this tastes like something she would have made. Simple and tasty, and easy to make from simple, everyday ingredients. Thank you for sharing this! Your great-grandma would be proud.

Spaghetti with Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
This was good. I added some salt and freshly ground black pepper, and topped with grated cheese (an Italian Blend). I used 8 ounces of pasta, so I cut down on the other ingredients, too. The timing seemed a little bit off for me, the garlic was starting to brown too much before the bacon was crisp. next time, I won't add the garlic so early. Also, I think I won't add the oil until it's time to mix it with the pasta, maybe I won't need so much. But over all, it was really good!

Mock Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
This was so good! I had 1/2 lb of hamburger for two people, so I only added 1/4 cup crackers, since I didn't need to stretch it so far. I didn't have any parsley, and I don't like chili powder, so I added a dash of garlic powder and a dash of onion powder. It was plenty salty from the crackers,so I'm glad I didn't add salt. I fried them in 2 Tbls oil and 1 Tbls margarine. I've never been a fan of hamburger steak, but I'll be making this again! Hubby wolfed his down. :)

Easy Authentic Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
This is really good! It has a lot of tomato flavor, maybe a little too much, but that's probably just my taste, I'm not a huge tomato fan. It has a nice, savory flavor without hot spices. I thought maybe 1/4 cup was too much oil, so I started with half that amount, but when I added the powders it soaked it all up and I needed the rest. It wasn't oily when it was done, either. Chicken broth came in a 14 oz can, and I measured out 1.5 cups, but ended up using the rest. The rice wasn't quite tender without it, maybe because I used silver pearl (medium grain) rice. It went great with chicken enchiladas. I will definitely make this again.

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
The taste and texture of this was wonderful! I had a little trouble getting the pie out of the pan, so I might butter the pan next time. (I have a glass pan, so it might not be a problem if you have a non-stick pan.)

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
Really, really good. I don't think it needs any additions, it was light and tasty just as it is. Half the recipe bakes up great in a loaf pan. (8x4 standard size). I used Baker's Joy, but next time I'm going to try the butter and sugar method. Like another reviewer, I baked it for 60 minutes at 325. (I used a glass pan.) I used frozen peaches, can't wait for fresh to come into season. I measured AFTER they were chopped. I wish recipes would be more specific about that. My hubby wants to try other fruits in in!

Southern Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
This was so good! I didn't have any Panko, so I used the crumbs from two slices of bread, and left them spread out on a plate all day to get really dry and crunchy (it's hot in my kitchen). I did add 1/2 tsp. salt, too. It was so good, and quick to make. I will definitely make this again.

Grandma's Harvard Beets

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
These were amazingly good! I only used one can of beets, shoestring cut, since there's only two of us to feed. I made the full amount of sauce, though. Used beet juice instead of water. I didn't see any need to simmer it for 30 minutes though, I just let it heat through and then simmered for 5 minutes or so until everything else was done. I forgot to stir in the butter, so I just put a spoonful on top of my serving. I will definitely make this again.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake IV

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
This is an excellent cake. I didn't use walnuts, and I've made it with and without the cherries. I've made it with pineapple tidbits, and with crushed, and we liked the crushed version better. Only change was that I use all of the juice from the can, about 2/3 cup. So good, and not difficult at all. Definitely not using a mix in the future.

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2015
I made this almost exactly as written, but I cut everything in half (there's just the two of us). Six ounces of pasta was too much, next time I'll go with four. I used a 5 ounce bag of fresh spinach, and 2 Johnsonville Sweet Italian sausages (1/4 lb. each), removing it from the casing and crumbling it into the skillet. With a non-stick skillet I didn't use any oil. Be sure you use a LARGE skillet! :) The sauce tastes rather plain by itself, but take a bite of sausage with it and it's really, really good! Very flavorful, you don't need spicy sausage unless that's your thing, I don't like hot, I like flavor. This really needs some salt, though. I added salt and pepper to it after it was in my bowl and before I added the cheese, but it would have better to have a little salt stirred into it. I did add a couple of tablespoons of half and half, but it didn't make much difference. A slice of garlic bread on the side is excellent.

Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2015
Made it exactly as written. My husband thought it had too much soy sauce, and I thought it was too much ketchup.

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
Very tasty, and easy, too. I used 2 potatoes, 2 Tbls butter, 2 Tbls olive oil, and a big sprig of Rosemary. Baked in an 8 inch square dish. It was just right for two people. I didn't stir, I just placed the wedge in the butter mixture on it's side, turned it over so both cut sides were coated. Then I sprinkled on the salt, pepper, and rosemary. I didn't stir during baking, either, so they came out looking pretty. I'm not crazy about potatoes, but these were good.

Chocolate Covered Bacon Strips

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Excellent! My only advice is to open all the windows because bacon smokes in the over. But it was sooooo good. My hubby would like it a little bit sweeter, so next time I'm going to try half milk chocolate.

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
Almost like Grandma used to make! She never measured anything, so her recipe is hard to follow. I made half a batch, except I used the full 1/2 cup milk. No problems rolling out. Mixed them up in my Little Oskar food processor. Definitely need to roll them thin. They were very good and I wanted more, but a half batch was plenty for two people.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
I only use 1/4 cup popcorn in a lunch bag. No oil. It's great without it, especially since I used to have an air popper. This tastes just as good, doesn't take up room for the popper, and easier to clean up.

Refreshing Limeade

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
I used 4.5 ounces of juice, and 16 packets of Splenda. (I bought the Costco sized box, so it's not worth it to go buy the granulated Splenda.) Filled up the 2 qt pitcher with water, poured it over ice. Plastic squeeze limes of juice were on clearance for .39, so the whole thing was pretty cheap, and delicious. For variety, add a tablespoon of cherry syrup. Now I need to go back and get some more of those clearance limes... :)

Irish Soda Bread from County Cork

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
This was great. I used only one cup of raisins, and baked it 45 minutes in a 10 inch, deep-dish pie plate. It was really hard to mix that much flour into such a small amount of butter, next time I may use the mixer. After mixing in the milk and egg, I had a lot of dry flour still in the bottom of the bowl. I finally mixed it up with my hands, and patted it into the pan. We ate it warm, and it had excellent taste, with or without butter. Will definitely make it again.

Guam Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
This was sooooo good. I reduced the amount of everything since I was only cooking for two. Used about 6 slices of bacon, 1 cup frozen peas and carrots (cooked in the microwave first) inrtead of sliced carrots and snow peas, and sprinkled soy sauce on to taste. I might try it again mixing some soy sauce into the rice while it's still in the skillet, but it was fantastic as it was!

Lemon-Lime Chicken Broil

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
The chicken came out OK, but the marinade was way too sour to make a good sauce out of. It didn't have much flavor beyond sour, either.
