Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
very good, but no where near enough sauce. I had to make a 2nd batch of sauce. Next time I will triple the sauce. And make it a bit differently... melt 3T butter with 1/4 cup minced garlic and add shrimp. Cook 1 minute, remove shrimp, add 3 T flour. SLOWLY whisk in 3 cups half & half, waiting for it to bubble and thicken before each new addition. Sauce thickens MUCH faster this way! Add 1 cup cheese and 3T parsley. Then pour over shrimp & noodles. I also added 3/4 a head of fresh broccoli florets that I first steamed in microwave. Next time I'll add the whole head.

Yummy Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
I listened to other reviewers and cut the sugar, used 3/4C for each part. The recipe says the batter will be thin.... um... not sure what I did wrong, but I've made it twice now, and it's NOT thin. And that's using half the sugar! But that's ok, it still turned out great! Needed more like 55 minutes to bake.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2013
previous reviewers are right! This is SALTY!! I'm a salt-a-holic - I mean, I sprinkle salt on my plate and dip my meat in it. Yeah, I love salt. So I opted to ignore reviewer advice and not cut out salt.... And that was a bad mistake! It's waaaaay tooo salty! My 5 year old son thanked me for his salt dinner. Yeah, it was that bad. Aside from the salt, it was great. I used fresh mushrooms & garlic. And I cut out 1 1/4 cups of water, and used 1/4 cup merlot. I also added some frozen peas & carrots when I added the gravy mixture. I also added a T of cornstarch to help it thicken. I served it over white rice. I will make it again, but I will leave out the extra salt AND use low-sodium soy sauce. In hindsight, maybe it was the cup less of water that amplified the salt??? But it didn't need more liquid - there was plenty of gravy to feed my family of 5, with leftovers for Daddy to take to work.

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
My 4 year old had 4 helpings!! My husband thanked me 3-4 time more than he normally does. He didn't add anything to his plate (usually he adds some kind of spice). I started with frozen pork chops, cooked it on high for 4 hours in the sauce. I was worried that not doing it on low for 8-10 hours would make for tougher meat. But it was soooooooo tender, fell right off our forks. I used garlic salt instead of garlic powder and ommitted the additional salt & pepper. I also used Mesquite chicken seasoning, cause it was all I had on hand. And I used 2 cups of homemade chicken stock. I served it with rice & green beans. The sauce went great with both sides - I wish it had been a bit thicker, but the rice soaked it right up. I WILL make this again. VERY easy and was a hit with everyone!

Sour Cream Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
I made changes that were suggested by other reviewers - added garlic & mushrooms. Added 1/4 cup of white wine, and just 1 1/2 cups broth. Otherwise, made as recipe says. It was way too much paprika. Next time, if there is a next time, I'll cut it in half. Served over egg noodles. Just enough sauce, but just too spicey (spice, not hot) for us.

Pretzel Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
these were not at all what I expected. My husband said he relaly liked them - my kids liked them, too. But as soon as I asked if they tasted like pretzels, everyone agreed they never would have made the connection (even though there was pretzel salt on top). They tasted NOTHING like pretzels. The were still good rolls, but I can't get past what I was expecting them to taste like... I'm very disappointed. I followed recipe - with exception of the milk, I followed a reviewer's suggestion to cut it down to 1 3/4 cups.

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
took advice from previous reviewers - added 1 cup milk, used one cream of chicken & one cream of mushroom soup. Added cheddar & parm. cheeses to top and sprinkled with crushed ritz crackers. Also added in some frozen mixed veggies. Very good casserole! Can't imagine it without the extra milk - would not be saucy enough!

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
AWESOME!!!! Followed recipe to a T, except I didn't have peas & carrots. So I used frozen veggie mix (corn, peas, carrots, green beans, etc). I also used "Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust" from this site. Pie was perfectly seasoned, perfectly thick filling, everything was perfect. I ate 3 pieces... lol Next time I will make 2, as recipe is written (I halfed everything this time). And I'll stick the 2nd pie in the freezer. There WILL be a next time. I'm thinking as soon as next week... :)

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Good rolls, I used my kitchen aid as another reviewer suggested (yeast, sugar & milk blended for 10 min, the added all other ingredients except flour and once mixed, I switched to the dough hook and added flour, mixed for 5 min.) I made cloverleaf like rolls (4 little balls together in a muffin tin). I let rise 45 min and then brushed with butter before baking. I wish I would have brushed with honey butter... they needed more flavor. But the consistency was great. I was worried because they didn't rise much - but apparently that was normal, cause they came out great. The just need something... maybe honey butter will be that magic touch. I'll try it next time.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This was my first attempt ever at a pie crust. And what a success it was!! It made enough for 2 1/2 crusts for me... but I latticed the top of my apple pie... so if I hadn't of done that, I probably would have had enough for 3 crusts. I will definitely use this again! I did take other reviewer's suggestions to use ICE water and chill the shortning, too. And I brushed egg white on the bottom crust before filling the pie, to help ensure it didn't get mushy from fruit filling. Thanks for an easy recipe that even I could do, that tasted great, too

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Good amount of apple filling - I was worried about fitting 8 apples in there, but I fit all but 1/2 of one, mounded it up pretty high. It baked down to a perfect slight mound. And it was easy enough to make, but lacking something in flavor. Next time I will take other reviewers' suggestions for adding cinnamon, nutmeg and/or cloves.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
very easy to make. I'm not a chili fan, but hubby says it tastes great. He suggested adding some green peppers next time for "filler" - although it's already a thick chili, there's a LOT of meat in it.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
very easy to make, came together so well and came out of pan cleanly. Hubby keeps stealing pieces when I'm not looking, so I think it's a hit ;-)

Stouffers Copy Cat Chicken & Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
almost just like Stouffers! As close as any recipe will ever get. Freezes well, and leftovers are almost better on day 2!

Three Cheese Manicotti II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
very good! I was worried there wouldn't be enough stuffing, since I tend to be generous with the stuffing. But in the end, I still had enough left over to fill one more shell than I had. My family of 2 adults & 2 kidss ate half this - the kids had seconds (which is rare!), leaving the rest for leftovers. I added some spicy sausage to some of the shells to please hubby. I give it only 4 stars, cause even though it was very good, and I will make it again, I feel it still needs something... I may try adding some cooked spinach to the cheese mixture next time.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
time consuming... but well well well worth it!!!! I did strawberry supreme cake with buttercream icing. Then I dipped in a variety of dark, milk & white chocolate. Milk chocolate was definitely the best - but all were great!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
I was nervous after reading reviews about it being too salty. It wasn't, it was awesome!!! I cubed frozen chicken and put it in the crockpot. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly. There were patches - very few - that were salty. I must not have mixed it as well. But aside from those 2-3 bites, it was perfection. My kids ate it. My anti-chicken-hubby had seconds. Next time I'll add some frozen mixed veggies near the end, too.

Ham and Creamy Potato Scallops

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
I followed the recipe to a T and it did not turn out very good... not very creamy... not very flavorful... I'll stick with Betty Crocker in a box.

Swiss Steak Quick and Easy

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I put all the ingredients in my crock pot. It turned out very good. I served it over rice. I just wish the sauce were more like gravy - it was very soupy.

Ham and Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
This was my frist try at quiche and WOW. it was great! I made the recipe just as stated. I read previous reviewers about being sure the broccoli was dry - I thawed it in the microwave, in a colander. And let it dry on paper towels for about 20 minutes. I was worried the microwave would cook the broccoli and the oven would then over cook it, but it was just right!! Next time I may use only 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, but I'm not a big pepper fan. My husband, on the other hand, thought it was perfect as it was.
