Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
These were really good. I didnt have any jalepenos on hand, so I added some extra salsa verde to make up for it. I also used fresh chicken broth instead of canned. In addition, I added about 1/2 cup ketchup to the mixture, as my mother always did. I cooked it on low for about 8 hours in my crockpot, and it had a wonderful flavor.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I made this for dinner tonight, and it was outstanding! I did make some changes. I used cheez it crackers instead of bread crumbs, and mexi blend cheese instead of the cheddar. Instead of rolling it into a pinwheel, I layered the cheese, along with some sauteed onions, in the actual loaf, which turned out great. I also put a few strips of bacon on top while it cooked. It was mouthwatering good!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I made this last night because I had all the ingredients on hand, which is obviously a plus. I let it simmer for 2 hours on the stove & I used one can of kidney beans, and one an of pinto beans. It turned out excellent. Wonderful flavor with a bit of kick, but nothing too spicy. My 6 and 7 year old daughters even liked it. I will definatly make again. Super easy to prepare and very low cost!

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
I made these for dinner tonight for my family, and they were to die for. Much better than the ones we get in restaraunts! Even my 6 & 7 year old daughters ate every bite. The changes I made were that I doubled the minced garlic, omitted the green peppers, and used italian seasoning instead of the oregano. Very inexpensive to make as well, which is a big plus! I will definatly be making these a lot more!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
This way of making chicken turned out really well. I deskinned the whole chicken, and rubbed it inside and out with Mrs. Dash, Janes Crazy Salt, and Janes Crazy Pepper. I also put about 1/2 cup homemade chicken stock in the bottom of the slowcooker along with the balled up tinfoil. I then sprinkled a little powdered chicken boilloun in the stock, and a little inside the cavity. It came out wonderful! The leftovers make a killer chicken salad too! Definatly a keeper!

Mashed Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
I made these tonight. My husband who usually can't stand potato cakes, loved them. So did my children. However, I did not like them that much, and Im the one that usually loves potato cakes! They were just alright to me.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
I made this for a family get together, and although myself, my children, and brother in law liked it - my husband and mother in law just said it was just alright. The dip in the restaraunts is better, but this is still pretty good.

South Carolina Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
I have been making sweet tea on the stovetop for years, and then came across this recipe. I tried it, and love it! I put the sugar in the pitcher right before I add the first batch of hot tea to it so that way the sugar disolves completely. I also use regular tea bags because that is all they sell in bulk at the wholesale club - so I use 10 regular size tea bags, which equals to 3 family size tea bags.

Hershey's ® Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
Oh my! This is the BEST cake that I have ever made by far! It tastes just like something you'd pay 6 dollars a serving for in a nice sit down restaraunt. I topped each bowl with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. Soooooooooooooo good!!!!!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
I have made this several times now - and my family and I just love it. Instead of using the graham cracker crust, I crush up some nutter butter cookies and add in a couple tablespoons of melted butter. Its so good!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Oh my, was this good! I had my doubts because all of the ingredients were canned - but I was proved wrong. I used 1 can of chicken broth & 1 can of cream of chicken soup like some other reviewers. I also used the Rotel tomatoes with chiles, lime, and cilantro - as another reviewer did. I added some chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and Franks Red Hot sauce as well. This is a new family favorite! Even my 5 and 6 year old gobbled every bit of it up!

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
Good recipe to improve upon! I sauteed a red onion, some minced garlic, and 2 jalepenos (chopped, and seeds removed) with 1.25 pounds of ground chuck. I doubled the oriental ramen noodles, used mexicorn, and also added a small can of green chilles. During the last couple minutes of cooking, I added a cup or so of salsa. Very good!

Sunday Pork Loin

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
This was alright - not terrible, but nothing to write home about. I followed the recipe exactly, exept I didn't add the celery just because I dont like celery. The pork itself was good, but the sauce was kind of strange tasting. Will not be making again.

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
This was pretty good. I did change a few things. I omitted the celery & carrots all together. I added 30 meatballs instead of 20, and also increased the pasta by 1/3 cup. It was looking kind of runny, so I also added a small can of tomato paste. Instead of using the individual spices, I used 2 tablespoons of italian seasoning. I will be making this again. Its very easy, and quick to make!

Beef Tamales

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2006
I have made these a few times now. This recipe is really awesome as is - but I found an easier & tastier way to do it after making it many times the way listed. I use the recipe on this site for Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat. Its very easy to make, & makes the tamales SO much tastier! I make the meat one day in the crockpot, then refrigerate it overnight. This makes it easier to remove any fat. Just pluck off any fat the next morning & follow the recipe for the tamale dough, although I use vegetable shortening instead of lard. Make sure to keep a little water or beef broth on hand to dip your spreading knife into to make spreading the dough onto the corn husks a little easier. If you put a can of beef broth in the stockpot with a little water while you are steaming them, it makes the dough tastier as well. Instead of using butchers twine, I just tear off thin strips of the corn husks & tie them with that. These are really good to freeze too. Place in a freezer bag, and pop in the freezer for up for 6 months. To reheat, steam for 15-20 mins or wrap in a damp paper towel & microwave for 3-7 mins, depending on the microwave. Steaming them will produce a moister tamale. To reheat refrigerated tamales, wrap in a damp paper towel & microwave for about 1-2 mins. You could also steam them for about 5 mins. Make sure you leave the corn husk on while reheating!

Aunt Millie's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
This was an o.k. recipe. From the reviews, I expected it to be a lot better. The only thing that I changed was I used crushed ritz crackers as the topping. It just wasn't cheesy enough for us.
