Indian Relish

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Very similar to a Harry and David pepper and onion relish I recently tried. Add 1 cup of this Indian Relish to 8 oz of cream cheese (mix well) and you have an amazing dip to serve with Wheat Thin crackers!! You can add crushed pineapple or pecans for a different flavor. This recipe makes 3 cups which is probably a great amount served by itself, but definitely would half the mixture if you plan to mix with Cream cheese, as this recipe will create 3 batches of Cream Cheese Relish Dip. When I made the relish it did not thicken, so after an hour of simmering on the stove I added 2 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed in 2 tablespoons of water and it thickened right up! This is a must try Relish and will be great for any occasion.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
Easy to make. Taste so good that you didn't even need to put butter on it. It also wasn't dry - something Soda Bread can be known for. The key is wrapping it in the Foil and allowing it to absorb moisture overnight. I am totally hooked on this bread.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I didn't have onion soup mix, so I just substituted with a teaspoon of each pepper, garlic, and Italian season. I also cut the potatoes in edible slices. Really delicious!

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
This is the exact same recipe that I have been using all my life. This is my grandmother's recipe and I use it for cakes and cookies! It is yummy! For cookies I may use less milk (couple tablespoons up to a quarter cup) and for cakes I may use more (1/4 to half cup). It all depends on the consistency of frosting that you want to use. I have even added Hershey unsweetened cocoa powder to make chocolate frosting (1/2 cup) and was super chocolaty so I am thinking a 1/3 cup of cocoa powder next time .

Cowboy Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
There are too many ingredients to fit in the jar. I made two jars and had a hard time fitting everything into the jar. I had to omit 1/8 cup of flour because it wouldn't fit. I followed the recipe exactly and decided not to follow it the second time. When I repeated this recipe again, I added the flour first and oats second. This arrangement worked out for the best as I was able to tamp all the ingredients down really well and fit everything. This is my suggestion for the arrangement of this recipe: flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, oats, holiday mini m&m's or chocolate chips, brown sugar, sugar and then pecan halves. I didn't like having my decorated holiday m&m's at the top as you couldn't see the color display. Hope the recipe is delicious and my family enjoys this as a gift.

Hash Brown and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Yummy! My 2 and 5 year old kids enjoyed eating this dish. We added green peppers instead of onions. I also added 16oz of cottage cheese and used 6 eggs instead of 5. There is definitely more potatoes in this dish than eggs. The dish did not taste dry at all - it was perfect. If you want a more eggy casserole this isn't it or at least you may have to try adding 8 to 10 eggs. Made again twice. This time without the cottage cheese which made the dish a bit dry. Still yummy, but I would recommend using a 1 lb of potatoes and 8 eggs - possibly adding cottage cheese.

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
My husband I both agreed that it would have been bland if we didn't add Zesty Italian Dressing, which gives this dish its flavor. I cooked 8 minutes and flipped the breaded eggplant and then added all the toppings before finishing with another 8 minutes followed by a 4-minute broil. I used two eggs and the whole eggplant and I still felt it wasn’t enough to cover the eggplant thoroughly. Leftovers were great in the microwave, took 2-3 minutes covered and I thought it tasted better because the eggplant was more cooked (not tough). Peeled or unpeeled, didn’t make a difference.

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
This recipe is more of a cheesy egg than egg with cheese casserole. I have tried this recipe two different ways, both are great. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out well. The crescent roll was even baked up - where when I add more milk and eggs it doesn't because the liquid will bake into the crescent roll. This casserole is more of a cheesy casserole that will favor towards children. The other time I made this was by adding 10 eggs, cutting the cheese in half and adding milk as suggested by the reviews. The casserole was great this way too. If you like more egg, add more egg, if you want to try a kid friendly cheesy version, keep the recipe as is.

Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I added 2/3 brown sugar and would have just replaced it with the regular sugar but it was an after thought. Next time I plan to substitute the sugar with 3/4 brown sugar. I used kitchen scissors to cut the dough into 4ths, worked really well and was quick. So quick and easy to make! Taste really good too!

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
I have used non bread machine and one other bread machine pizza crust and this one is the best I have tried!! It is so simple to make and doesn't require a whole lot of ingredients. I used Bread flour when I made the crust and did everything else the same. It was so good, my husband and I couldn't resist only eating two slices of pizza. We also made another pizza the next day and the day after...That is how good it was! I now make this recipe with 1 can of beer at room temperature. We use our favorite beer and I just flatten the beer myself by pouring from one cup to another. Also if beer isn't warm, will heat up in microwave to save time (Important to have ingredients at room temp). I also use 3 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3 3/4 cup flour and 3 1/2 teaspoons of yeast (basically a recipe and a half). After the dough has been made, I will divide the dough and roll into two pizza crust. One for adults and the other for the kids! I love to use barbecue sauce instead of pizza sauce. IT taste amazing, give it try!

Delicious Pineapple Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I used 10 ounces of pineapple and added it right to the mixture. I also did not melt the butter for the topping as people suggested. I also baked the muffins at 375 for 25 minutes. Do not use cupcake liners!!!!! The muffins will stick bad - though if you wait a few days they will gather enough moisture from the air and come out easier. I found it to be much easier to just grease and flour the muffin pan. Definitely go with 12 larger muffins. I made two batches the first time I tried and made two more the next day. Everyone loves them! So easy to make. Don't worry about adding pineapple to the top of the muffins - it is unnecessary work.

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I have never liked sweet potatoes until now! I originally made this dish for my husband and now I make it for the both of us every year for the holidays. This is the only way I will eat sweet potatoes. The praline topping makes this dish special as well as the heavy whipping cream.

Glazed Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2001
Love making this pie. This is a great apple pie that taste delicious cold. Making the cream requires patience and stirring on low temps. That way you don't get clumps. I find the more apples the better, so I usually ad an extra apple or two since they shrink during baking.

Turkey Goulash

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
You have to make a few changes to the recipe in order to give it a 5 star rating. There isn't enough sauce or too much pasta. So I made it like the recipe said, then I doubled the tomato sauce because it looked like it was too much pasta. Still added a 3rd can of tomato sauce and another can of Diced tomatoes. After I did that, the dish looked amazing and tasted great!! So I ended up using 3 cups of tomato sauce (24 ounces) and 28 ounces of Stewed diced tomatoes with seasonings of Basil, garlic and oregano. This is a must try recipe.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I made this icing as suggested and it turned out great. It wasn't hard to spread on the cake at all. I creamed the peanut butter and butter first for 2 mins and then I added the powdered sugar. As soon as I added the powdered sugar it became dry, but as soon as I added the milk it became smooth again. I tried spreading the icing on the cake with my spreader but ended up using my hands because the mixture wasn't staying on, but if I molded the icing on it stayed in place. It tasted amazing!! I used Natural PB Jif since I only eat natural PB. Sometimes it is better to use original PB, but I opted to try the Natural and it worked perfectly. I used this icining on the Too Much Chocolate Cake Recipe also found in All Recipes and garnished with crushed peanut butter cups. Was an amazing cake!!! My new favorite!!

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
So good you don't need cool whip!!! I can't eat pumpkin pie without cool whip and this pie is really yummy that you can go with out or add it and make it even more special!! What makes this pie so special is the brown sugar/walnut topping and adding sweetened condensed milk to the pumpkin filling. You can not go wrong with this pie. Make it every year for Thanksgiving!
