Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Way better the 2nd day. I made this recipe as given using 1 tsp salt, and served it with cornbread. I used hickory smoked, sweet glazed ham, and I do think the type of ham you use affects the outcome. The 1st meal was OK, but seemed bland. It was so much better the 2nd time that I thought my taste buds must have been off for the first meal. My husband confirmed the leftovers were far tastier. So, if you can, put the cooked meal in the fridge at least overnight so the flavors can meld to create a truly superb dish.

This was great! I made a half recipe using left over hickory smoked ham. I cooked basmati rice, so added 1 cup of chicken bouillon. I used only 1/8 tsp cayenne.

Quick Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
Too much filling for even a deep dish 9" pie. I suggest using two 3oz pkgs cream cheese with 3/4C milk. I used one can of pie filling on top of the cream cheese/pudding filling.

Onion Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This is a great basic meatloaf to which you can add other ingredients you like. As to the fat that accumulates, I have always had to drain meatloaf half way through cooking in the oven. Draining will allow the sides to brown. I folded one large piece (18 x 24) of aluminum foil into thirds, then folded the ends to make handles. It is not necessary to weave the foil for drainage, but the foil makes it easy to remove the meatloaf in one piece. I used dried, diced onion instead of the soup mix, so I added 1 tsp salt. Instead of ketchup I combined steak sauce and hickory barbecue sauce, but only used 1/4 cup. I cooked on high for the first hour, then on low for the remainder. My husband and I prefer firm meatloaf without lots of vegetables mixed in, and this one turned out very well.

5 Minute Microwave Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
My husband said this is the best cornbread he's had in his life, and he's 60. He liked it because it was moist inside, but I found it to be firm as well. It didn't crumble to pieces when I split the slices to butter them. The only changes were that I used 3 Tbsp sugar due to previous reviewers advice, and 1/2 tsp salt because salt enhances other flavors. I used a 9" pie plate with a juice glass in the center to ensure against a soggy middle. I greased the cookware, added the batter, and cooked in a 1200 watt microwave for 3 & 1/2 minutes. I reheated it later for 30 seconds with no discernable change in quality.

Hearty Baked Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I only had 3/4 lb ground beef so this recipe was exactly what I needed. After browning beef, I took another reviewer's advice and added 1/2 tsp basil, 1/4 tsp each oregano, rosemary, and ground thyme, plus a beef bullion cube. Also cooked mine on the stovetop, so I had to add 1 & 1/2 cup water (with some corn starch for thickening) to cook potato as there wasn't enough liquid from just the canned tomatoes. Used 1 large baking potato cut into 3/4" chunks. Used 1 cup frozen peas and carrots added 10 mins after the potato, and cooked everything on simmer. I don't see how this recipe could feed six people; as I made it there was only enough for my husband and me. DH isn't crazy about the tomatoes, but loved the dish anyway, and raved about the aroma.

Banana Shake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
I needed a recipe for what I had on hand- bananas, yogurt, soymilk. I used one banana, 1/4 cup plain soymilk, 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt, and 1 Tbsp sugar. This made one thick serving, which was all I wanted. The person who originally made this recipe must like sweet/sour; I prefer sweeter, and ommitted the lemon juice.
