Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
This is an awesome 'base' recipe; I made some changes out of necessity and some out of personal preference. Before even starting, I wasn't sure about the garlic salt (fresh garlic,minced, instead) or the seasoned salt (sounded kind of salty & ick, so I omitted). I didn't have lemon juice. I had cream of chicken on hand and I had a can of sliced mushrooms on hand, so I used those instead of crm of mushroom soup. I used double the amount of cheese (we like a little broccoli with our cheese :). With all that said and done, this was SO GOOD. My 10 year old loved it. I'm gonna use left over ham (cubed) and make again. BTW//I HATE mayo, but you cannot taste mayo in this.

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I'm not a pecan pie lover like some, but I like good pecan pie around the holiday season. This is a real pecan pie. Not Jelly Goop with Pecan Topping pie, like every other pecan pie I've had. I did do my pecans a little different - I chopped all pecans in my food processor save the halves I laid on the top. I do think this would be amazing with a shortbread crust and will try that for our Christmas.

SQUASH CASSEROLE

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I didn't have fresh squash or onion but did have canned squash with vidalia onion, so I completely drained and used three of those; I also was out of crackers so I used 2 cups of boxed chicken flavored stuffing mix (and left out the salt). This was the best squash casserole I've ever made and I didn't even have all the right ingredients!

Donna's Cheesy Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2005
I don't like quiche. That said, I actually liked this quiche. I made it for my 8 year old, who likes quiche (and what a good protein meal for him), and I sampled it because it smelled better than any quiche I had tried before. I was really surprised. I sauteed the onions in a combination of butter and olive oil; left out the salt. I gave it 5 stars because any quiche I like has to be good:)

Chicken Danielle

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
I'd had this at a restaurant... and then they quit serving it :( When I decided to find a recipe to make it myself, I was so lucky to have tried this one first. OMG! It's so great and so versatile (I made with 2 cans sliced mushrooms, drained and white wine the first time b/c that's all I had and it was still awesome). Great with Garlic Green Beans

Eggnog I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
REALLY good eggnog... and I didn't appreciate the whole "not too thick like other eggnog" thing, until I made this: Now I realize how gross store bought eggnog can be.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: May 12, 2005
Added chopped onions to loaf, subtracted brown sugar from topping (I did this the first time I cooked it, based on personal tastes). AWESOME!

Pumpkin Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the 2 pinches ground cinnamon. This was perfect! This is less sweet than sweet potato casserole, which is great when you want something that's more like a light side than a heavy dessert.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Very, very good roast. I didn't coat & brown my roast (I used eye round). I also didn't have onion soup mix (used dried onion instead) or vermouth (used white wine). I also added about a 1/2 tsp rosemary (b/c after trying the recipe for the Christmas Beef Stew, I found I LOVE rosemary with my roasts and stew).

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
You HAVE to try this recipe: There's a reason it has 1500+ high ratings. If I could give this 10 stars, I would, it's THAT good! Like others, I did change it up a little... I tossed the diced (gala) apples in a few tablespoons lime juice to prevent browning; I added no sugar whatsoever; I also added blueberries. With the chips, I found the cheaper flour tortillas, the thicker kind that are on the shelf, were better than the more expensive refrigerated kind. That's just my opinion. Also, I sprayed the chips (after cutting the rounds into quarters with a pizza cutter), cinnamon-sugared them, resprayed, then second coated with cinnamon sugar. They were awesome by themselves. I 1 1/2 times'd this recipe and it made 1/2 gallon of salsa... which was the only food at the party that was gone before it was over.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This is fantastic! I had to make the last cup of milk heavy cream (only had 1/2 c milk)and I added 3 dashes (maybe ~ 1/8 to 1/4 tsp) nutmeg. This is the very best rice pudding I've ever had. If I change anything else, I might cut down down on the sugar by a tablespoon or two- the golden raisins make would make up the sweet 'difference'.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I modified the recipe out of necessity: I decided to make meatloaf at the last minute and didn't have mustard powder, so I used same amount of Coarse Ground mustard (has mustard seeds in it). I also didn't have beef boullion granules, so had to 'break up' a boullion cube instead. I did go ahead and double the sauce as others suggested. THIS SAUCE IS AWESOME!!! I don't care for meatloaf particularly, but my husband loves it. The sauce made me actually decide I would have to make meatloaf more often.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
I halved the recipe, which was a big mistake. I couldn't stop 'tasting' it while the cupcakes were baking, thus I didn't have enough. Will double next time, just in case.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
I'm on Dukan Diet, so I used fat-free mayo and sub'd fat-free greek yogurt for sour cream; also, I only have dried dill weed... and this was FABULOUS over cod. My go-to dill sauce from now on.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
Made with Rice Milk, as I didn't have any milk on hand, and it still turned out great. (Also, my son is dairy-free, so he was able to have sausage gravy and he loved it.)

Angel Biscuits I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
After two decades and possibly thousands of biscuits that could serve as boat anchors, I have made a batch of decent biscuits. This will be the recipe I will forever forward use - No More Looking! Yay! - and will build my 'experience' upon, so that one day (later this century) my future grandkids will curse at my grave because I never wrote down the the recipe for 'my' biscuits ;P I should mention that I accidentally used a whole teaspoon of salt and they weren't salty (I HATE salty!).
