Chicken Spectacular

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This is really good. I used Uncle Bens Wild rice and it just came out perfect. I will make again and also make extra to freeze to pull out when we need a ready to go meal.

Green Beans with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
Made these for Christmas and they were a hit. Very easy to prepare. I used the pre-cooked bacon in the pouches that you can find by the salad dressing mixes and bacon bits. It was real bacon and instead of the bacon fat I used olive oil and it worked out just fine and was very tasty. Nice change to ordinary green beans. Thank you!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I followed this recipe exactly for the most part except only used 3/4 can of the beans for each and added 2 1/2 lbs of ground round beef because we are not huge bean fans. This is a very good basic chili recipe. My husband doesn't like it spicy, but I do so this was just right for both of us as it wasn't too spicy nor too bland. I only wish George had told me if I should cover the pot while simmering or leave the lid off. I left it off cause I wasn't sure. Other reviews were correct in saying the chili at first looked too thin, but it does thicken up nicely after cooking for the full 90 minutes. I made it for Superbowl Sunday and it's a keeper!

Wonderful Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
This was very good. I didn't have a loaf pan so I combined the ingredients and shaped this into a loaf and baked it in a pyrex dish. I don't recommend doing this because the loaf spreads and doesn't retain the loaf form very well. I will use the loaf pan (as recommended) the next time I make this. It will be the first dish I think of when I have left over white rice on hand as it is perfect for using leftover rice with. Also, this would be a good recipe for people who like to stuff green peppers. We enjoyed the sweet taste this meatloaf offered it was not overwhelming. But like other reviewers have noted it needs salt and pepper for sure! Very easy to prepare especially if rice is already made.

Down Home Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
I made two pans of this for Christmas and it was a huge hit at my house. It definately pleases everyone and once you get going it's easy to make. I had extra left over because I made so much and my sister asked if she could take the rest home since her kids loved it so much!

Kathy's Roast and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
Excellent and super easy, I used two 3lb roasts and doubled all the ingredients and cooked it in a very large crockpot and the only thing it needed was salt to taste! The entire family enjoyed it and I will make this again. There was plenty of gravy and that will freeze nicely for another meal. I recommend putting in the veggies about 1 hour after the meat has had a chance to cook some on it's own or they may come out too mushy. Great coming home with dinner already cooked and no oven or stove cooking to heat up the house in the hot summer! Thanks for this one!

Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
With some minor variations we really liked this. It was very flavorful and has great combination power (different veggies could be added, ect..) My oven is very powerful and I wanted to make sure it didn't dry out so I only baked it for 15-20 minutes and it was perfect! Also I added a few dashes of tabasco sauce to the mixture and about a cup of semi thawed green peas before baking and it gave it a nice flavor. Also I used 3/4 can cream of celery and 3/4 can cream of chicken. I also used a combination of mild cheddar cheese and the parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. It's a keeper and I recommend it!

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
All I can say is Oh my gosh this is good! I couldn't quite grasp the concept of the mayo at first as a coating on the chicken and figured I would try it. I had 14 good size drum pieces in a bowl and because of others saying 1 cup of mayo was too much, I started with 1/2 cup and just used my hands even though it was gross to do it this way at first, it made sense..I just took each piece and slathered it with a thin but even coat of the mayo. I found 1/2 cup of the mayo was plenty. I then dredged each piece through the breadcrumb mixture and coated it evenly and put it in the pan and let them cook without turning it. My husband must have said "This is Good" 10 times!! The mayo must seal in the flavor because this was very moist and yummy. You can season the breadcrumb mixture any way you desire. I added red pepper powder to mine to kick it up a little in the flavor. I will definately cook this again!! Very kid friendly...better than shake and bake! I also liked it cause it didn't require an eggs or flour. Everyone has Mayo in the fridge!! Thanks Elizabeth!!

Cola Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2003
This recipe is extremely easy and tasty in a very generic "kid friendly" way. Next time I will try and zip it up with more spice to make it a "hotter sweet" probably by just adding some hot sauce. I made an error and tried to double the sauce by adding 2 colas - 2 cups of ketchup and 8 teaspoons of brown sugar. The extra cola was not necessary it just made the sauce very thin and I ended up adding A LOT more ketchup and brown sugar to get the sauce thicker. Also, I would recommend checking your chops at 35 minutes depending on the thickness/size of your chops. Mine were completely done at 45 minutes and wished I had pulled them out a little sooner just to prevent any toughness. I can't see how this recipe calls for 1 hour of cooking time unless you are in high elevations or have a weak cooking oven. Cooked with white rice and a veggie. Will keep this for a night when I don't have much time, it's VERY easy.

Meatloaf With A Bite

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
Made this for dinner one night and served it with the standard mash potatoes and corn. I don't know what "I" did wrong, but it didn't firm up in the middle as I would have liked it too. I doubled the recipe so maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway, it was VERY tasty in a different non standard meatloaf way. With the leftovers, because it didn't firm up, I ended up just letting the meat crumple all together mashed it down on top of a layer of leftover mashed potatoes layered it with the leftover corn and topped it with cheddar cheese and we had "mexican sheppards pie" for dinner tonight! It was yummy! Recommend you try this one, just as an alternative to "regular" meatloaf. Oh, and for the salsa, I used the Walmart brand Chilies and Lime flavored salsa..it really gave it a wonderful taste!

Oven Fried Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2003
This recipe was really easy, and very good considering it was baked. I had too much chicken to put in one pan so I decided to do a little test and pan fry the rest of it the traditional way. The oven fried was better overall; it required less "work" because you only had to flip it once and didn't have to "watch" it and oil didn't pop out and burn me (as usual). I think the key to keeping the coating on is making sure you pat dry the chicken first, coat well with the flour, shaking off the excess, quickly drudging it though the egg, which I added about 4 tablespoons of standard hot sauce to my egg mixture just to give it a little kick, and then really roll it around in the bread crumbs to get a nice even coat. I added lemmon pepper seasoning after the chicken was in the pan right before it went into the oven and it really was delish. Will do this again for sure!!

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2003
I've made this 2 times in 5 days. My husband actually "requested" this for dinner tonight and I was amazed. He loved it and said it was the best BBQ chicken he has ever had...although he isn't a picky eater, his least favorite food is BBQ, but not anymore!! So simple too, I used a whole chicken the first time and the second time I cut it directly in half down the breast bone and found it cooked better and more flavorful the second time, but I attribute that to the wonderful Easy BBQ sauce I found here by Debi K....it was AWESOME. Can't ask for an easier meal and if you use foil in the pan, it makes really easy clean up too!! Thanks for making my dinner menus more diverse!

Crunchy Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2002
Served this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Next time I will chop the waterchestnuts a little bit more finely. I bought the ones in the can that came "diced" and didn't chop them up more and they were a tad too big for the dish. The bacon adds great new flavor!

Pineapple Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2001
This recipe if not done right, becomes a dip instead of a ball. Drain the pineapple really well and also used CRUSHED pineapple like it calls for. I accidentally got pineapple chunks, thought it would be ok, so I whipped with a mixer the cream cheese and pineapple together and it came out too wet, and then I just decided to use it as a dip, but adding all the ingredients, even the crushed pecans and people still loved it!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2001
Made this for Thanksgiving 2001..it was a huge hit, but I used 4 cans of greenbeans instead of 3, and probably increased the ingredients a tad overall just to stretch it out..my husband loved it! Easy to prepare, and I agree, mixing in the cheese with the bean mixture and then sprinkling some on top with the crackers was a great thing!
