Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
This was a nice dish accompanying our cookout and we received compliments. However, the next time I'm omitting the ground beef from the recipe. Sweetened beef just didn't taste right.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Simple, fun, delicious and healthy way to cook your broccoli. There were no leftovers. The second time I used this recipe, I had a head of fresh cauliflower that needed to be used. I prepared it the same way and it was fabulous, and I'm sure there are other veggies this method would work well for also :)

BBQ Glazed Homemade Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Scaled the recipe to accommadate 18 servings, and served these as main course for a bit of a non-traditional easter meal. Not only were they fun to eat, they were delicious and went nicely with coleslaw, pasta salad and deviled eggs. Everyone loved them.

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Very nice, and I will make it again, just with less vinegar next. It's still a very good coleslaw :)

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This was perfect for our New Years Eve party. I am definitely making these again. I didn't have time to make homemade meatballs so I picked up a bag of 80-count Homestyle Meatballs from Walmart. Other than that, I followed the sauce recipe to the "T" - THEY WERE WONDERFUL!!! THANKS!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This icing smells as wonderful as its tastes. One minor problem mixing this together: 2 teaspoons milk and corn syrup was not near enough to make even a paste... it was more like a big lumpy pile, so I adjusted the recipe to tablespoon measurements and got the workable consistency I was looking for. I used this icing on Sugar Cookies V from this site and my cookies turned out to be the best I have ever had.

Soft Sugar Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
Beautiful cookies! After years of searching, finally a cut-out sugar cookie recipe I'm keeping. My cookie dough was perfect and not flimsy at all. Miraculously my cut-outs did not loose their form when transfering to the cookie sheet... wow. That had been a big problem in the past using other recipes. These were simple to throw together in a pinch, I had most all ingredients on hand, and the result was a very soft, chewy, buttery cookie that held delightfully. I am so happy with these! Thanks!

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
To me it wasn't a 5-star recipe, but it was very good indeed. I was surprised that my children were eager try pork chops this way, but they were willing. I used tart apples, and after sprinkling the brown sugar, I followed others' suggestions for adding cinnamon and nutmeg... and I even sprinkled a small amount of allspice. The end result was such a soothing winter-warming meal that didn't leave you feeling weighted down afterwards. The sweet potatoes came out resembling the taste of sweetened or glazed carrots. The chops I used were very thick and created excess juices, but that was ok. I made yellow saffron rice as a side and it went perfect with the whole dish.

Mexican Spiced Turkey Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2005
This was almost a flop. I thought it was too watery, and lacked flavor or something (like an incomplete recipe). What saved it was the dollop of sour cream I added to each individual bowl (on top of the crushed tortilla chips and shredded colby/jack cheese). However, this recipe could have used a can of green enchilada sauce, some dark red kidney beans or black beans, and about a 1/4 cup of Cheez Whiz or Velveeta (stirred in and simmered during the last 3 or 4 minutes of cooking).

Bottom Round Roast with Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2005
I almost passed this recipe up after reading some of the reviews. Glad I tried it because it turned out great. I cooked the roast just as the recipe suggested, and it is true... lifting the lid to check the progress during cooking only lengthened my cooking time...darnit. Reading others' suggestions, I added extra herbs/spices (Season Salt in place of salt, Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning, Cavender's Greek, a pinch or two of Thyme, and two whole peeled cloves of garlic). I decreased the onions to 3 instead of 6, and substituted Beef Broth for the water... great results. The roast was tender and juicy, and the onion gravy was to die for. Husband and kids ate it ALL up.

Easy Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
I made this for a small semi-formal school banquet for about 40 students and faculty. This was the perfect punch recipe for such an occasion as the ingredients we cost-friendly and there was plenty enough to go around, even for seconds. I used strawberry Koolaid for the flavor. It was delicious and everyone loved it. It suited the occasion perfectly. Thanks.. It's a Keeper!

Mapled Ham

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
This was a big Fathers Day hit at our dinner table. I really wanted to try this glaze but all I had to work with was a large bone-in half-ham. So I baked it following the package directions, then the last hour is when I added pineapple rings, cherries and cloves. It made a beautiful presentation and was just as tasty as it looked pretty. I arranged ham slices on a pretty platter, poured some of the glaze over the meat, and garnished the edges with the pineapple and cherries. Very nice.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2005
This was way too rich and thick. My husband and kids claimed they liked it, but it was so rich that it made me ill. I won't make this again.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
Delicious! The whole family enjoyed. I divided the mozzarella into 3 parts so there would be some left for the topping. The lasagna was just a little dry. I must have simmered my sauce too long and lost the moisture it needed. I should have replaced the liquid that evaporated or added extra to it. This was a sweet sauce, but for those who like a more robust flavor, try stirring in about 1/4 teaspoon (or just a small squirt) prepared mustard to your sauce at the end. It will blend with the brown sugar and give the sauce a tangy kick. I will make this again. It was very good.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
It was pretty good. My party guests enjoyed it with chicken flavored crackers and tortilla chips. It was a quite oily on top just coming out of the oven, but I blame the amount of mayonnaise for that. The dominant flavors in this dip were by far the garlic and parmesan - could hardly tell the crab meat was present. I'll probably try this recipe again in the future, so I'll make sure to use 4 smaller-sized cloves of garlic (or just cut back) because the garlic compliments it, but not in overpowering amounts. I'll definitely cut back on the mayo and double or possibly triple the amount of crab meat.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2005
This is a very delicious shrimp recipe, and I rated it a 5 even though I kinda messed it up (I will make again). What I did wrong: After marinating, I skewered alternating shrimp with onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Adding veggies to the kabobs is where I messed up because it caused the shrimp not to lay flat on the surface of the grill and it cooked unevenly. As a result, I had to cook the kabobs longer for total doneness, so some of the shrimp were tough and overcooked, whereas others were undercooked. Next time, I will skewer shrimp on their own skewers. The veggies were a hit, so they'll get their own skewers, too.

That WAS some dang fine gravy! Next time I'll double the recipe and up the size of the meat patties. I might also try using ground sirloin. Thank YOU! My family is very happy!
