Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
My oldest son loved these! My younger (picky eater) son wouldn't even try one :-( Hubby loved them. I used panko crumbs instead of italian bread crumbs. I added 1 tsp each of old bay, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. I cut up the chicken and let it marinate in buttermilk for about 30 minutes. I skipped the butter, the buttermilk was all it needed. **Tip***Preheat your pan in your oven. This will quickly brown and crisps the nuggets. Turn them about 1/2 way through to brown both sides.****

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
This is by far the best banana bread recipe I have ever tried. I tweeked it a bit, by adding 1 tsp of vanilla, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 3/4 cup walnuts and I took another reviewers suggestion and brushed the batter with a brown sugar glaze (1 tbsp water, 3 tbsp brown sugar, mixed). I used my potato ricer to mash the bananas, propably not necessary but it was fun :-) Tip: Add the walnuts to the flour mixture before you fold in the wet mixture. The flour keeps the walnuts from sinking to the bottom of the batter. I used my mini loaf pan, baked it for 350 for ~40 minutes. The entire family agreed it was delicious (hubby is a chef so his approval doesn't come easily). I will be tossing out all my other BB receipes..this is a true keeper!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I've used this recipe for about 20 years. I think I got it from an old Pillsbury cookbook my mom had when I was a kid growing up. Super easy! I whip the shortening in my mixer for a minute and then add the powdered sugar gradually. I mix the vanilla in the milk so it gets evenly distributed. I add the milk after I've added about two cups of sugar and then add the remaining sugar to the desired consistency. I divide it in little bowls and color. I usually make a double batch when we make Christmas cookies and be sure to save some white for Santa's beard and snowmen!

I think this is the best fish I've ever made at home! So moist and tender. Great flavor. Will make again and again.

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Delicious! I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and used 1/2 white sugar, 1/2 brown sugar. I also use applesauce instead of oil. I added the chopped nuts to the dry mix (tossing stir ins with flour keeps them from sinking to the bottom). I also added 1 cup of Craisins. Instead of chopping the apples, I grated them with my hand grater. I used about 3 cups of apples (I used MacIntosh). I baked it in a bundt pan. After I sprayed the pan with Pam, I sprinkled the inside of the pan with cinnamon sugar. The only change I will make next time is to add more cinnamon and maybe a little nutmeg. My family really enjoyed the bread.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
OMG. Just like Mom used to make. I added chopped walnuts and raisins in between layers of biscuits. I also sprinkled each layer with a little extra cinnamon/sugar mix. It was devoured by my family. Thanks OP for sharing.

Swedish Meatballs II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Delicious! I made this meatballs as directed, but like others suggested, I used the sauce from Swedish Meatballs I (1 cup evap. milk, 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can of cream of mushroom). I cooked the meatballs, drained them, added them to my crockpot in layers, pouring the sauce over each layer. Cooked on low for 4 hour. OMG. We will never eat any other meatballs. These would be great with marinara over pasta.

Restaurant Style Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Yummy! The whole family loved it! I loved it because I made it with whole wheat pasta and 2% processed cheese. I also used whole milk instead of cream b/c that's what I had on hand. Will make again...and again and again!

Campfire Skillet Breakfast

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This was very good. We used breakfast sausage instead of bacon. My picky kids ate it right up! My husband loved it as well. I made in in a skillet on the stove, but we will definately make it camping this summer!

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
Yummy! I doubled the cheese and added 4 oz of softened cream cheese. I used frozen (thawed) yellow corn that I threw in with the potatoes and carrots during the last two minutes of boiling so the corn would be hot too. I added 1 tsp of garlic powder, salt, pepper each. Next time I will boil the carrots about 5 minutes before I add the potatoes, I had a hard time mashing them. I resorted to using my hand mixer. They still tasted great! I took this to a dinner at my mom's house, they kept well in the crock pot on "warm" for several hours. Everyone loved them. Even the kids...a nice way to sneak in some veggies!

Sweet 'N' Sour Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
I omit the cherries due to personal preference, but otherwise I make this exactly as written. It's delicious! We sometimes add some water chestnuts and serve over steamed rice for dinner too.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I used this recipe as a base and used suggestions from several PP. I baked the "crust" in a 9x13 pan for 16 minutes at 350, next time I'll spread it a litle thinner for a crispier crust. While that was baking, I browned 1 lb ground beef with a chopped onion. Drain when cooked. Return meat mixture to frying pan. Add taco seasoning and water per package instructions. Also add 1 can of corn and 1 can of black beans, both drained and rinsed. In a sauce pan, combine 1 can refried beans and one 10 oz can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies. When the crust is baked, spread refried bean mixture down first. Top with meat mixture. Top with cheese. Bake for 10 minutes at 350. I had taco toppings available and we all fixed our to our own liking (green pepper, tomato, lettuce, sour cream). We ate the tortilla chips on the side. My husband said "it's a keeper" which is two thumbs up in his book!

Easy Cheese and Ham Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
The cheese sauce didn't thicken as much as I would have like (that's why I gave it only 4 stars). Next time I'll probably use slightly less cream and maybe more cheese. My husband loved it! We ate this for leftovers until it was gone...which is rare in our house...we are not leftover lovers!

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I reduced the amount of cereal to 8 cups, and added 1/4 cup butter and 1 tsp of vanilla to it. I cooled it slightly in the fridge before tossing with the powdered sugar so it doesn't absorb it so much...coats better with less. This is soooo adictive. I can't make it unless I know there are people here to help me eat it or it's gone before I know it! ****Here's a tip, line your measuring cup with saran wrap before mesauring the peanut butter. It will slide right out with no messy clean up! I do this for all sticky ingredients (shortening, honey, pb, corn syrup) Works great!***

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
Excellent!!! It rivals some of the best fudge/candy shops on Mackinac Island, Michigan. I only bake it 30 min. stirring every 10 minutes. I find that if I bake it 60 minutes it becomes grainy.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
These are great! I add diced onion and green pepper to the mixture. I use our favorite bbq sauce instead of making the one listed to save time. I portion the meat mixture in my 1/2 cup measuring cup and make little mounds. This way they are all even and they are just perfect! They are even better reheated the next day for meatloaf sandwiches.

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
This was very good. I would add garlic salt next time instead of season salt and like previous posters I added a chopped green pepper with onion and meat. My husband raved about this for 2 days! He doesn't normally eat leftovers, but he ate this several times over the weekend.
