Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
I have made this recipe numerous times with numerous alterations and have finally find the one that works for me. I decrease the extract (personal preference). I heat the half-n-half/cream and sugar on the stove until the sugar is dissolved the night before I want to make the ice cream. I chill the mixture all night. I put the ice cream in my ice cream maker for about 25 min. Put it in the freezer for about 2 hours. Take it out and let it soften a little and serve. It was wonderful!! I make it way to often and my chocaholic son never seems to mind that it is vanilla!

Tuna Melts

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
Years ago my mom used to make chicken melts but she couldn't remember how she made them. As soon as I read this recipe, I knew this was it. She substituted canned chicken for the tuna, same amount of mayo (I used light), onion optional, cheddar cheese on a toasted english muffin. Bake it in the oven until warm and cheese is melted. Yum!! Thanks for helping me recreate my mom's recipe.

Mom's Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and it got rave reviews. I did cut way back on the sugar (1/4 cup) and also only used 1/2 tsp salt. This is the best casserole recipe I have ever had. I will definitely be making this again and AGAIN!!!

Polenta

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
I love polenta! The only difference is my great aunt uses 2 cups cold water to every 1 cup cornmeal. It makes a very firm polenta. This is the way I prefer it since I grew up with it this way. She only serves it with a red (tomato based) gravy but it is also good as a side dish to pot roast with beef gravy.

Water Chestnuts Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
I love this chestnut appetizer. I have made it for my son's b-day parties and they are always well received. I mix 1/2 cup brown sugar with 4 Tbsp soy sauce for 2 cans water chestnuts. I like the addition of the brown sugar. I also make sure to marinate them. I will definitely make this recipe again!

Grandma's Gnocchi

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
Update** I watched a show on food network and they suggested chilling the potatoes after running them thru the potato ricer. Also, they recommended using only enough flour to make the mixture come together.**My entire family including my little boys love gnocchi. I gave this recipe 4 stars because my recipe is a little different (and I love my recipe!). I use 2 cups flour instead of 1 and no olive oil. I do add parmesan cheese (at least 3 Tbsp). As for potatoes, I use 4 large baking potatoes. I have mashed my potatoes in many different ways and have found the best way is to use a potato ricer. It was well worth the investment (I think it was about $30) since my family loves this meal. Thanks for the posting!

Simple Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
I am very picky about sloppy joe recipes but I did like this one. I had an accident with the soy sauce and added to much and still knew that I would like it with less soy sauce! My mom and dad ate it and they decreased the soy sauce to 1 Tbsp. They gave it 5 stars! I love that it is a tomato sauce based recipe. It was not tangy and I love that. Thanks for a great recipe! 11/10 update My aunt and uncle also tried this recipe on my suggestion and they give it 5 stars also! I will definitely be making this for my son's upcoming birthday party! Thanks!

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
My husband loves these cookies. They are a must at Christmas at our house. The only difference I make was to increase the vanilla to 2 tsp. Very good!

Sour Cream and Chive Mashed Potatoes

My entire family loved this recipe even my husband who had to eat it reheated. It was sooo creamy and delicious. I added 3 Tbsp butter and used dried chives instead of fresh. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Strawberry Pie V

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
This is similar to my grandmother's recipe. It is requested often. The only variations are less water (1 cup), more cornstarch (3 Tbsp) plus the addition of 2 Tbsp light karo syrup. This is the only strawberry pie my family makes. It is wonderful!

Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
I love cucumber salad. I do not use green onion and I add a little sugar. I have also used cider vinegar. This is great over baked or boiled potatoes.

Italian Wedding Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
I am giving this recipe 4 stars since it is the most like the soup I make. The other recipes on this web site do not come close to the soup my husband and I grew up with. The one glaring omission in this recipe is the PASTA! Acini di pepe is a must in this recipe. Add to your taste. I also prefer to use fresh spinach instead of escarole but my husband is use to escarole and likes it. I do not add the egg at the end of the recipe since I do not prefer it this way. I also add some minced garlic. Overall this recipe has promise!

Creamy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
Very good recipe! It can easily be adapted to the slow cooker. My family loves this served over rice and noodles. I really like the combination of the mushroom and chicken soup. Great recipe.

Sweet 'n' Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
I subscribe to Taste of Home and have been making this recipe for years. They are a hit with my family. The gingersnaps are a good and unique addition to the recipe. Try it. I do not think you will be sorry!

Stove Top Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This rating is based on the cooking method only. I make pot roast one way but will change the cooking method from the crockpot to slow cooking it in the oven. I kept forgetting to put the roast on to cook because I was sick and distracted. Finally, I thought of the stove top method and found this recipe to help me out. I browned the pot roast as directed. Seasoned it with salt and pepper and browning sauce. Put a can of beef broth in the pot and simmered away. I kept checking it the way I would if it was in the oven but I really didn't need to. I never had to add any additional water. It was so tender and the gravy was wonderful. This will be my method from now on.

EAGLE BRAND® Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
I have made these cheesecakes for years! I make regular cheesecake (not chocolate) and I also purchase 1 can of cherry pie filling. I spoon the cherries and some filling onto the mini cheesecakes. They are always a hit!

Asparagus Lasagna

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
I made a recipe similar to this and it was delicious. My husband doesn't hate asparagus but also does not eat it when I serve it and he had 2 helpings. I used fresh asparagus, no mozzarella, no thyme and added alot of parmesan cheese in the sauce and between the layers. Yum!!!

Instant Pistachio Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
Very easy and so good. I used vanilla pudding mix instead, added some maraschino cherries and omitted the mini marshmallows. I can't wait to actually try it with the pistachio mix.
