PB&J Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
This is my favorite dessert to make right now. It's so simple I don't even have to get out the recipe anymore. The taste of the tart jam with the sweet sugar cookie crust and granola and peanut butter chip topping is indescribable. I used strawberry jam the first time I made these, but my husband talked me into blueberry preserves the second time and the taste was out of this world. Thanks for the keeper!

Cocktail Wieners II

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
Made this for a baby shower and the people gobbled them up. There were no leftovers. I made mine in my crockpot which kept the food hot.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I've got some of this delicious soup cooking in the crock pot as I'm writing this review. I love the way it makes the house smell. The recipe is simple to make and hearty to eat. The first time I made it I blended both cans of the beans. While I enjoyed the texture, my husband recommended leaving one can whole the next time. Now I just blend one can of beans with my immersion blender, then add the salsa and blend, then add the whole beans and spices. The crock pot does all the rest. We eat it with cheese quesadillas and garnish with onions, sour cream, and cheese. It's a wonderful recipe.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
This was the best biscuit recipe I've found so far, and I've tried plenty, trust me. I mixed the dough and let it rest in the fridge, and while I did knead the dough some, I may follow the advice of others and not knead it at all. UPDATE: Made these this morning and didn't knead the dough; they came out light and fluffy. I'm going to try buttermilk next time. I found that just pressing the dough down with my palms instead of rolling makes for thicker biscuits. I'm upping this to five stars.

Cajun Crab Cakes (No Breadcrumbs)

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
So flavorful with all the spices and you can taste the crab because of the lack of breadcrumbs that are so much a part of other crab cake recipes. I broiled mine and they were light and tasty. I'll try frying and baking in the future just to see what a difference it makes. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
This simple potato dish turned out way better than I had hoped. I'm choosey about my Ranch dressing, so I picked the brand I like best: O'Charley's. I did use the entire 16 oz. of the dressing in the casserole and I'm glad I did. It was rich and creamy mixed in with the melted cheese. Thanks for this great side dish that my husband and I really enjoyed! Oh, and I didn't think the butter made the dish greasy, although the creaminess of the melted cheese and dressing would probably mean you could leave it out altogether.

Classic Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
This is indeed a classic coleslaw. I've been looking for a perfect slaw recipe for years, and though I always found one I liked, I never found one I loved and want to make often. I made this at Christmas and even my brother who is no big fan of slaw was eating it up. I've made it with the bagged slaw, but it just doesn't compare to a fresh head of cabbage chopped up fine in the Cuisinart. Thank you for posting this keeper!

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Delicious! and simpler than another similar slaw recipe I have. The only thing I did differently is use sesame seeds since I had no cashews and toasted them and the ramen noodles in a frying pan on the stove instead of the oven. Thought I could control the toasting this way. I also added a T of sesame oil since I love the flavor it imparts in dishes. Thank you!

Mushroom and Potato Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I made it exactly as the recipe called for and it is delicious. I love how the mushrooms get a meaty texture to them from simmering. Will make this one often. Thanks for sharing.

Great Grandpa's Garlic Pickles

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
I've had a jar of dills sitting around for a while and have wanted to try this recipe for a while, so last night I made these pickles. When I made lunch I remembered them in the fridge and ate some with my meal. At first they just seemed good, but then I couldn't stop eating them! They are delicious and I'm going to make some for gifts this Christmas. Thank you for this wonderful sweet and spicy pickle recipe!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Best bread recipe I've ever tried. Make two loaves, or one loaf and rolls or buns, every week. I haven't made sandwiches with store bought bread for months and don't plan to. This bread makes every sandwich I make special and delicious. On weekend morning I put some pats of butter on a slice and bake it for 10 mins., then spread some grape jelly on it and eat it with my coffee. Will be no more settling for me.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
One of the best Alfredo sauces we've found. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding the parsley at the end because I didn't have any on hand and I like my Alfredo sauces with just the cream, butter, and cheese. Thanks!

Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
The best Au Gratin potatoes ever. I kept the onions in the recipe because it adds flavor to the potato/cheese sauce combination. The house smelled delicious for hours afterwards! Thanks so much. I've tried other Au Gratin recipes but none compare to this one. This is a keeper.

Aunt Edith's Baked Pancake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I was so sick of frozen waffles and traditional pancakes, so I tried this easy recipe. I slid it onto a big plate, cleaned off the center of the kitchen table, and we tore off big chunks and put on our plates to drizzled with maple syrup. Very delicious and one of my favorite new recipes to make. Thanks!
