Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
This is the best meatloaf ever. I've given this recipe to so many people, it is now a staple in many of my friends' and familys' homes. My boyfriend requested that I make it at least once a week. I even wrote a list and put it on his refrigerator: Keep on Hand for Meatloaf... I've modified it a bit. I don't measure anything anymore since I've made it so often. I use far more cheese than the recipe says to and extra steak sauce. And I use 2 pounds of beef. I use Club crackers because they taste better than Ritz and sometimes I use mexican blend shredded cheese and beefy onion soup mix. This is just soooo good and soooo easy.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
i am addicted to soft pretzels. and i work in a mall so i spend a lot of money on them. so when i found this recipe i had to try it. i think i'm going to save myself a lot of money by making my own pretzels. these are so good. i think they are better than the ones i get at the mall. they take a lot of time to make but it is totally worth it.

Mocha Ricotta Creme

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
i'm sure this is healthier than a lot of desserts, but it is gritty and bland. i tried to liven up the taste but nothing really worked.

Spicy Beef Curry Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
We really like spicy foods so after reading the other reviews, I was concerned it wouldnt be spicy enough. I added a habenero pepper to the one jalepeno and used tomatoes with chiles. I left the curry as it was though. I also added red potatoes and carrots. It turned out REALLY REALLY spicy, but that's how we like it. It was awesome.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
i don't know what i did wrong but the potatoes didn't soften at all and they never got golden brown and i even cooked them un covered for an extra ten minutes. the flavor was OK but I nothing I would write home about. I used up the red potatoes in the pantry though so it served it's purpose I guess.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
Boyfriend gives this a 5 but I'm not a big pot roast fan anyways. Used beefy onion soup mix, added some thyme in the last hour, used regular COM soup. cooked a 3.5lb roast on low for about 6 hours. Turned out pretty good.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
very thick even after adding extra milk and water. took a long time to cook on low heat as other people suggested doing. By the time I was finished I was frustrated from standing over the stove for 45 minutes. The first 8 pancakes turned out undercooked in the middle and messy looking and those got tossed. I got about 10 more pancakes done before I gave up. Still had about 10 pancakes worth of batter left that i through away. The boyfriend, who normally inhales pancakes, took a few bites and couldn't eat any more. he said that one pancake was enough because they were so heavy. I thought they didn't have the flavor I was expecting. Not worth the hassle. Next time I want pumpkin pancakes I think I'll just add pumpkin pie spice to my bisquick. It would probably taste better. Sorry.

Very easy. Not as good as the corn at the state fair but, still, very good.

Pecan Breaded Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
I think what went wrong was that I used chopped pecans and they really should be finely ground. They just fell off the chicken in the skillet and burned before the chicken was fully cooked. I was left with chicken breasts in a pile of burned chopped pecans. The maple syrup flavor was good though. I think I'll try this again with finely ground pecans instead of chopped.

Uglies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
absolutley fantastic. A little messy, but that was to be expected. I used Famous Dave's sweet and zesty barbaque sauce and everyone loved them. I had a lot of left over meat though. We used it the next day like sloppy joes and they were really good. What barbeque sauce you use makes all the difference. I highly recommend the sweet and zesty famous dave's sauce.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
I'm going to re-review this. I made this once for a party and it was great. I'm making it again for Easter but I wanted to comment a little further. First, to all the reviewers who didn't like this because it was too liquidy: This is a SALSA not a salad so expect it to be juicy. I don't think I have every had a salsa that isn't really juicy. If you want a fruit salad use a different recipe because this isn't what you're looking for. But, if you want a salsa but just want it a little LESS juicy (this will also make it a little less sweet for those who complained that it was too sweet), try 1) using harder tart apples like you would for an apple pie 2) use kiwis that aren't all the way ripe so they are harder and less juicy (since you add the sugar sauce anyway you won't notice the tartness) and 3) before adding the sugar/preserve sauce, put all the chopped fruit in a salad spinner and spin some of the juices out. 4) toss in the raspberries at the end so they don't mush up when you toss in the sugar/preserve mixture. This will make the salsa a little more chunky and less juicy. But like I said, its salsa, so expect it to be juicy. This is a really awesome recipe if you don't mind all the time consuming chopping. You really do have to use fresh fruit, not frozen. I used apple flavored jelly for the preserves. Fantastic. I could do without the cinnamon chips personally. They aren't that bad but you can buy better ones at the grocery store. Too much work and they are kind of bor

Artichoke Chicken

Great! Yes, it kind of tasted like artichoke dip over chicken, but I like artichoke dip so I really liked this.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Pretty good! I was afraid it was going to be bland so I drizzled olive oil on the chicken and seasoned with a mesquite poultry rub. I did use all three soups but I didn't have any sour cream. I seasoned the soup mixture with garlic pepper and threw in frozen brocolli in the last hour of cooking. Boyfriend gave it 5 1/2 stars. I served it over white rice. I thought it could have been cheesier but it wasn't bad at all. I think as originally written though, it would have been on the bland side. Next time I might try that Velveeta idea instead of the cheese soup. I'll still leave the sour cream out. I don't think it will really do anything special to the recipe. Very easy very good. highly recommend.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
These were the best pancakes from scratch ever. I didn't have shortening so i used butter instead. I didn't melt the butter all the way and left little chunks of butter in the batter. it melted as they cooked. It was good. And I added vanilla.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
This was far better than any packaged spanish rice I've ever bought. I didn't have any onion or green pepper though. but I don't think it even needs it. I chopped up a couple jalepenos and added a tsp of chopped garlic and sauted those with the rice. I also added a 1/2 tsp of cumin as someone recommended. Absolutely fantastic.
