Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
This was my first time ever making meatballs. I thought they were a bit of a pain and did not add anything to a recipe. But my husband specifically asked for meatballs with his spaghetti so I decided to try this one since it did not call for them to be cooked twice like every other meatball recipe I have ever read. I could not be happier than if I had not had to make them at all! This recipe was super easy and super tasty! These were as easy as making meat loaf and tasted better! I cut the recipe in half for just the two of us and put the full recipe amount of the herbs as my husband likes things spicy. Even the red pepper flakes. They were not too hot even for me and I cannot tolerate a lot of hot. I would cut them in half for children though. I was worried about the salt because I don't care for a lot of salt but I left it alone this first time except for cutting it in half thinking if it was too salty I would cut it next time. It was just right. We both loved this recipe. If you try only one meatball recipe make it this one you will not be sorry! Thank you Chef John for sharing this super good and super easy meatball recipe!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
This has become my Go To base for chili. Of course I always make small changes as I go based on what I have on hand and I have learned that 1/4 cup of chili powder is definitely too much for us. We like about a small non heaping Tbsp of chili powder. I also use diced petite tomatoes and one can of Rotel © to make up the tomato juice because we prefer a thick chili with small prices of tomato throughout. But if you adjust for heat preference and tomato type preference you cannot go wrong with this as your base. I like to add a small shake of cinnamon and a tsp of cocoa at the end of cooking to finish it. My husband adds a splash of vinegar to his bowl and my granddaughter likes sour cream added so you can use this in multiple ways. I also use beans because we like beans in our chili. I prefer one can of chili beans and one can of kidney beans myself and will sometimes add Bushes baked beans in different types depending on what I have in the cabinet. This recipe really is the perfect base for chili & I can always find it due to my dad's name being George! Lol. Thank you George for writing down the perfect base for me to have awesome chili whenever I feel like it!

Ground Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
We ran late tonight and I needed something fast and filling but not heavy and that was not spaghetti (my husbands favorite). I ran across this and had everything on hand in one form or another. I only had a half a head of cabbage but with the one can of diced tomato s it was just right. I cooked the ground beef separate because it was ground chuck 19/81 so a bit more grease than I like in food. I sauteed the onion and garlic and a bit of diced bacon in a bit of olive oil before I added the cabbage, then after the cabbage added the tomato and cooked beef. I used basil, oregano, parsley, red pepper and paprika to taste. Cooked it all down, then added some diced zucchini at the end because I had it and it needed to be used. Put it all over rice. My husband added grated Parmesan because he does that to anything remotely Italian. And he says it is a keeper and to put it into rotation. Yeah! Cheap, easy and quick. Thank you for posting this recipe.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
This is the second time that we have tried this dish. The first time I was way heavy handed with the red pepper. We loved the taste but it was so hot we could not breath afterward, LOL. This time I used about half what is recommended and am looking forward to really enjoying this dish. I love the cinnamon, clove, allspice and paprika mix. Oh by the way I used all the veggies it called for and the threw in a half a package of frozen veggies on top of that and still used 4 red potatoes for layers on top and bottom. I used Better Than Bouillon, a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and increased the wine to 1/2 cup. I also thickened the sauce with corn starch and water since I increased the liquids by quite a bit. My husband and I are both meat and potato people and I suspect this is going to a easy go to dish. Thanks for sharing this.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
My mother-in-law has been having me make her this cake about once a week. She and her husband really like it. I like it also. This last week I decide to try half brown sugar half white sugar and that made a nice top on it. I used about 3 bananas well browned. This is a keeper.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Yummy! I wanted a soft oatmeal cookie recipe that I could add chocolate chips and pecans to and this was it! I added a splash of milk and about a quarter cup of applesauce to assure enough moisture for the additions. The cookies came out soft and tasted wonderful. Definitely a keeper of a recipe. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
Loved it! I am a casserole person. This was quick and easy. I used two lbs of ground beef, 2 pkgs taco seasoning, 1 can spicy refried beans, 1 can of rotel and 1 can of mexi-style corn and flour tortilla. I slathered 1/2 of the beans on 2 of the flour tortillas and put them on the bottom of the greased 4.5 x 9 casserole dish. browned the meat with peppers (red & jalepeno) and onion, drained the fat off, added the taco seasonings, the rotel, a cup of water and the drained corn until heated through. They I layered 1/2 the ground beef mix on top of the tortillas and beans. added another layer of tortillas and beans the rest of the ground beef mix and then topped with cheese. backed for .5 hour at 375 degrees. Now while the changes I made do make some difference it should not be as much as you would think. Anyway we loved it! Thanks for the recipe, definitely a keeper.

Soft Molasses Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
This is my first time making these cookies. Super simple to make! I always have trouble getting a cookie to stay soft, but not these! I was out of ginger so used extra cinnamon & allspice to make the difference, plus I added some fresh grated nutmeg and tiny bit of grated lemon rind, just because it was there in front of me. Oh and I was short on molassas by a quarter cup, so made up the difference with brown sugar and about 3 TBLSP of water I put in the molassas jar to get all I could. Then I rolled them in cinnamon/sugar. Not only are the cookies still soft(yeah!), they are big and super tasty. I am very confident they are even better with the correct ingredients. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It will be my go to ginger/molassas cookie in the future.

Cowboy Bake Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
I have made this recipe since I was a young girl. We call them Ranch style beans but it is almost exactly the same. Any kind of bean combination you like but drain the kidney beans. I like a mix of kidney, chili and a whilte bean such as pork and beans. I use ketchup instead of soup and a heaping TBLSP each of yellow mustard, cider vinegar and brown sugar. sometimes I add bacon sometimes I don't. sometimes add corn bread on top. Perfect with fried taters. Great recipe.

Baklava

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
OHHHHMMMMMGGGGG! This is tooo scrumptios for words. This is my first try and it came out awesome! I will note that the nuts would have been better served if they had been chopped fine. My rough chopped pecans were good but would have been even better chopped finer. I also added a bit more cinnamon, a half a teaspoon or so, to the sugar/honey/water mix just cause I like it. And I will do that the next time. I am making this for every family event forever. It was just too easy and ohhhhh so gooood. Thank you Neonwillie for posting this!

Applesauce Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
This was very good. I used the applebutter and tarragon because I did not have applesauce or rosemary. The only issue I had with this was it did not turn out as tender as I wanted it to be. Next time I will try the crockpot. I will use this recipe again.

Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
These are my husbands favorite cookies. I use 3/4 cup of each sugar and 1/2 Cup butter 1/2 Cup shortening + 1Tblsp water. & 2tsp of vanilla. I added coconut and used 2 kinds of chocolate, milk and semi-sweet and chopped pecans. I set my oven to 375 although I suspect it is a bit cooler than that, more like 365 so I had to cook them for 15 minutes. I used a small scoop that is approximately a full Tblsp. The cookies came out perfectly. Not flat at all. I had lost my recipe for these so was very happy to find this one. Thanks for posting it!

Lemon Snowballs Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
These were good cookies. But they are not crunchy. In fact they are almost cake like. I did like the very lemony taste. We chose to leave out the nuts as my son has allergies. Next time I will do these with powdered sugar and minus the egg. More like a wedding cookies only in lemon. Thanks for the recipe.

EAGLE BRAND® Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
This is the peanut butter pie recipe I have used for years. My grown kids still request this for holidays. It is extremely sweet and you only need a small piece, although I have never been able to eat just one,lol. Also I love it with just a plain old pie crust and no chocolate at all, I am a purist for peanut butter I guess. Thanks for posting this it is a great recipe.
