Sweet Potato Cranberry Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
This is great. The cranberries give a nice tartness and the dish is very pretty with the deep red of the berries contrasting with the potatoes. I have always made mashed sweet potatoes with some orange juice, cinnamon, brown sugar, etc. for Thanksgiving and that has been a family favorite. This casserole is a delicious change and makes a more festive presentation. Thanks! I thought I would add that I took this to a Thanksgiving dinner and it was a big hit.

Mini Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
Do not expect this to be anything like the green bean casserole with cream sauce or made with soup. This is tasty but very different. Nice light side dish that is easy to prepare and a nice change.

Three Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
This was great! I did want to lick my plate. I used the beef sausage I had in the freezer. I don't like hot dogs so for me this change was imperative. ;) And I added 2-3 tablespoons of rum after I took the dish out of the oven. The rum is a fab addition, but I tasted the beans before adding the rum and it was great without it, too. We had it with Taste of Home's Creamy Coleslaw from this site (minus the celery salt in that recipe). Corn sticks would be perfect with these beans. Edit to add for previous reviewer: chili beans are a canned bean product. I had not bought them before. But they are just beans in a bit of a chili sauce. I drained both the chili beans and the butter beans. The beans still had lots of liquid after cooking.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
Moist and very tasty. I will be cooking many more turkey breasts in my slow cooker. It is August and it is too hot to cook. This is another good recipe that doesn't heat up the kitchen. I cooked a 7 lb. breast and used onion powder, marjoram, garlic pepper, dried parsley and salt. As someone suggested, I put a few pats of butter in the cooker. My slow cooker only heats from the bottom, so I didn't want the meat to stick before the drippings were released. I cooked mine 3 hours on high. I will be using this for turkey enchiladas, sandwiches, and just as is. No more turkey cold cuts for me. This is too easy and tastes a zillion times better.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
Tastiest salmon ever. I didn't change a thing. I want to try this with other fish, too. Maybe grouper. Thanks for a really delicious recipe.

Bob's Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
Okay, so now I am in love with Bob. Or at least with his salad. And I didn't even have some of the yummiest sounding ingredients. I usually am not fond of three bean salad. But this dressing with balsamic vinegar won me over. I confess though -- I added another 2 teaspoons of sugar. But probably not needed. I poured the dressing over frozen green beans (thawed), a can of garbonzo beans, a can of red beans, and three big green onions, chopped. Super good. I cannot wait to make it again and include the red pepper, artichokes, and feta cheese.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
We loved this. Husband said had never had such a tender corned beef. I cooked a 3lb. roast in the slow cooker for four hours on high. I included the spices that came with the meat. I added carrots the last 30 minutes. NEVER had carrots that tasty before. Served this with colcannon and it was a fantastic meal. I did not use a stout beer. Next time I will -- I'm sure it will be even better. I used a 12oz bottle of plain domestic beer and the 1 cup of brown sugar. We may start having corned beef on a regular basis now.

Southern Style Thanksgiving Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
Best green beans ever. I used both fresh and frozen beans together. Could not tell the difference when I served them. Delicious. I will be serving green beans a lot more often now that I have this recipe.

Cornbread Dressing I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
Perfect cornbread dressing recipe. Just the right flavor and moistness I wanted. I did add a bit more sausage and I cooked it first. But after eating it, I don't think it needed the extra sausage. I also sauteed the onions and celerey in the butter and then added everything to the biscuits and cornbread. I used whole wheat refrigerated biscuits. When I crumbled the cornbread and the biscuits I did not use all that I had made. I used four cups of each as specified in the directions.

Peach Brulee

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
Easiest dessert I ever made! Very good. I was searching for something to do with a jar of sliced peaches I had opened. I also put 1/4 cup raisins in a couple of tablespoons of water, heated them in microwave for 30 seconds and added to the peaches before I sprinkled on the sugar mixture. I will be making this again.

Kicky Steak Strips with Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
This is really good!! I did add brown sugar to the marinade. I will try it without the sugar -- I don't need the calories that sugar adds. :) I used dijon mustard because that's what I had. I marinated the meat for about 5 hours. And I added some sliced carrots when I sauteed the onions and garlic. I wanted to add a little color and I really liked the addition. Thanks for the easy recipe that I will be using often.

Rice and Lentil Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
Good and something I will make again. I agree with another reviewer -- next time I will cook my rice separately. My husband liked this a lot.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
Count me as another fan of this pie. This is the best pumpkin pie. I have made it for years. I also like to try other types of pumpkin pie -- like with a pecan topping or with a layer of cream cheese. But I have never made any pumpkin pie recipe that people like as much as this one.

On the Go Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
I liked this a lot and my husband asked for seconds. The olives really make this dish. Don't be afraid to try this dish if you are not a big olive fan. If I had told hubby there were olives in it -- he probably would have turned up his nose. I didn't have mushrooms to add and I used the smoked sausage I had on hand. I threw in a pinch of summer savory and shake or two of seasoned salt. I also added about half an onion - diced - to the sausage as I sautéed it. But I don't think any of my minor alterations changed the dish much. For a casserole, this is unique in that it is not heavy on a sauce or gravy so the subtle flavors really sparkle.

Mom's Great Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2004
I was looking for an easy green bean recipe for tonight's dinner. Usually frozen green beans are a pretty tasteless side dish and I was hoping for a recipe that would rate seconds. This was very easy and very tasty. I used frozen green beans and also used my microwave. (16 oz. green beans and about 3/4 to one cup of water) As said before, it is a very subtle flavor. My husband and I both liked this side dish (and had seconds!)and I will be using this recipe often I think.

Simple Savory Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
I love this recipe. It is so easy and makes me seem to be a great cook. Very moist and very flavorful. The fresh rosemary is fabulous. I didn't have garlic salt, so I just used a little minced garlic and salt. I also put it in a roasting bag. I probably won't do that next time, but I will cover the pan with foil. I also followed previous advice in the reviews and made gravy. I won't do that again as the meat was so moist and much better without the gravy (but I am not good at gravy). This recipe goes into family favorites and will be wonderful to serve guests.

Spinach and Artichoke Au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
I have been making this recipe since before any of us had even heard of a pc, much less the internet. (I have now made myself feel older than dirt!) We love it and I cannot imagine not using marinated artichokes. Different strokes etc.

No Bake Pumpkin Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2004
Pumpkin pie is my husband's favorite pie and this is now his favorite pumpkin pie recipe. This is one of the BEST pumpkin pies I have ever had. Very easy to do and it makes a thick creamy filling. The recipe is great with no changes. We do like it with whipped topping. I also like to add 1/4 tsp. of gound cloves. Tonight I added 1/4 cup sugar and it was a little too sweet. This pie would also be excellent in a prebaked pie shell. Just typing this is making my mouth water.

Grandma's Famous Salmon Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2004
I like this recipe much better than salmon cakes with bread crumbs. Tastes better and is low carb!! I minced the onion and used a medium sized onion. The patties held together very well. It may have helped that I put the mixture in the frig for about 30 minutes before I formed the patties. I also added a little seasoned salt.

Taste of Home's Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2004
I am updating my rating from 4 stars to 5. We like this coleslaw so much (without celery salt) that I make it almost once a week. I now usually use sugar rather than sugar substitute and in this recipe I think it makes a big difference. This was my first review: I tried lots of recipes for coleslaw dressing looking for one I liked. This is it! I use sugar substitute and no celery salt.
