Apple Betty

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
I have been using this same recipe for over60 years. Sometimes I make larger amounts sometimes just the smaller 8"-9" size. I always peel the apples and instead of measuring the apples I just fill the baking dish or pan nice and full and sprinkle with some cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg.. No more than 1/4 cup Orange juice.No need to soak the apples first in orange juice. They are supposed to turn brownish when they absorb the juices. I usually double the topping and just pack it on. You can refrigerate or freeze any unbaked topping for later use. I cook at the same temperature and when I see the juices bubbling up in spots through the topping I know it is done but test with a paring knife to be sure. Sometimes takes longer than 45 minutes. Oh and be sure to put a tray underneath in case it bubbles over a little too much. I got the recipe from my Mom in 1950's and use it often especially in fall and winter.

Reuben Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Haven't made it yet but I know it will be good. My husband and I both like Reuben sandwiches. My only change will be using a Trader Joe's Ciabata flat bread circle. It makes a great pizza and is enough for 2 big eaters with some leftovers.Thanks for an interesting pizza variation. Added review..just made this last night using the Trader Joe's ciabata base and it was delicious. I may have used a little less dressing but that was personal choice. If you like the Rueben sandwich you must try this. It's a keeper.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
One reviewer used peaches. I haven't tried that yet but I think you could also use the chunky style applesauce for filling or maybe canned pears with cinnamon or nutmeg added to give more flavor.

Beef Meatballs and Picante Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This is a copy cat recipe with the same result as the easier original. Most use store bought meatballs with grape jelly or cranberry sauce combimed with chili sauce. That said it is a good tasting end product. I have done the original using store bought and also homemade so I give it a rating.

Kale Krisps

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Line the cookie sheet/s with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray(any flavor). Kale must be dry-use your salad spinner or blot dry with paper towels. Sprinkle kale with salt and pepper and any herbs/seasonings desired. Then sprinkle cheese on top and spray again. Bake as directed until crisp but not burned.

Slow Cooker Porcupine Meatballs With Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Wow,the original recipe back in the 1960's was just the meat mixed with rice and cooked in canned tomato soup. Not much taste but easy and a cheap way to feed my growing family.What an improvement this recipe is . I hadn't made these in years but plan to use this recipe often.

Maman's Fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
I have been making this type pie for many years using just strawberries (no rhubarb) and then topping with whipped topping. Very easy and good but you need a lot of strawberries ( about 2 large boxes). I use whole strawberries standing on end in the shell and cover with the mashed strawberry syrup. Excellent and keeps in refrigerator if you have any leftovers.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
Actually 10 stars. I have made this several times and it turns out great every time. It tastes as good as it looks. The amount of rhubarb will vary with the size/depth of your pie dish. Sometimes I add more or add a couple sliced tart apples to bulk it up high. You can also use pinches of nutmeg or cinnamon inside and sugar on top of the brushed crust to suit your taste but any way you slice it, it is one great recipe.

Grandma's Iron Skillet Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
I have to rate this even though I haven't made it because I do a rhubarb pie that is done very much like this. All the ingredients make it so good and a dip of vanilla ice cream is just the thing to top it.

Vegetarian Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
iusually make the real chicken version of this and except for the fake chicken strips the recipe is the same and it always gets raves. It can be baked for 30 min @350 with the cheddar cheese sprinkled on top (instead of using a slow cooker) GOOD EITHER WAY.
