Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
This was good. I think I will use bread crumbs next time because I'm not a fan of using crackers in cooking. The only crackers I had were 50/50 crackers that my husband gets from the Indian store, which are half regular and half sweet. So that with the ketchup and steak sauce made this taste like it had a cup of sugar in it and it was just a little too much. But that is certainly my fault and not the fault of the recipe. I will try it again soon, maybe this week, with bread crumbs and will make twice the recipe because my family gobbled this up fast. My kids ate more than they usually do for dinner and my 5 year old daughter actually went back for a 3rd piece.

Taco Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This was very good! It didnt take long to brown the ground beef and get it in the oven. By the time I bathed the kids, dinner was hot and ready. Perfect for a week night! My husband ate half of it himself though, so once my son gets a little bigger I may not be able to feed all of 4 us with this dish without adding a side. But it's great! Update: I doubled the recipe this time and it was more than enough for my husband this time. We had left overs. I used the recipe Taco Seasoning I this time, and it was great with it!

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Excellent! This hit the spot for something sweet and delicious. I made an apple pie a couple of weeks ago, and my 5 year old daughter asked me to make another pie without the crust because she loved the apples. This was a little twist on that and was yummy! Might make twice the recipe next time because these went too fast. I did use brown sugar instead of white and was out of raisins. I will try it with raisins next time.

Baked Omelet Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Wonderful, just like other reviewers have said. I had a few variations based on what ingredients I had on hand, such as substituting green olives for black, skipping ham and jalapenos because we didn't have any, and using fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I also used raw onions instead of sauteeing them since we were in a hurry. It was great! Would love to try with breakfast sausage in the future. Maybe with tomato slices on top as another reviewer recommended. Would have made it exactly as the recipe called for if I had the correct ingredients, but it was still great!

Minute® Rice Porcupine Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
Very tasty! These are a little different than most of the other porcupine ball recipes because these are more like a twist on spaghetti and meatballs, and are not as tangy as some others are. I prefer this way. I used 1.5 pounds of meat and barely came up with 21 meatballs (not 30 as shown), and I made them as small as I could without them falling apart. I did not add the water because my meat mixture was already very loose. Maybe my ground meat had too much moisture, which is possible because I had defrosted it from the freezer. I did not stir them for fear of them falling apart, and some of them collapsed into the sauce anyway. So, they were pretty soft, but nevertheless, they were very good. We didn't care whether our meatballs were firm and round- that didn't affect the taste and we were going to cut them up on our plates anyway. Very good recipe that I will definitely make again, probably with some bread crumbs to make them easier to form into balls if using fresh (not previously frozen) meat doesn't fix the problem. I don't think there would ever be a need to add the water though.

Coconut Macaroon Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
These were AWESOME! I notice everyone else pointing out that we are supposed to use unsweetened coconut, but I used sweetened because it is what I had, and it was devine. I wouldn't change anything. The batter was very thick, so it was hard to spread, and I found that I had to spread it with 2 fingers with a little butter on them- the spatula just was clinging to the batter. I made them in a 9x9 bar pan and thought the thickness of the layers was absolutely perfect. These are just great and are definitely staying in my recipe box. We burned our mouths on them because we couldn't wait till they cooled to taste them, and they were worth it. They are even better the next day.

Mexican Pizza II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
These were wonderful! I love that this recipe calls for the beans and meat to be mixed together. That made them very better than others. I made them with homemade flour tortillas which also made them great. I will agree with a previous reviewer's comment: these are better than Taco Bell's!

Double Delicious Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I was wondering where the substance of these "bars" would come from because the recipe seemed to contain only a crust and toppings, without a middle. They were a little thin and the edges of mine were hard and crunchy after they cooled so that we ended up cutting away the edges and eating the ones in the center of the pan. They had a great taste. Maybe next time I will make them in a square baking dish instead of a bar pan to make them a little thicker for my preference.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This was quick and easy for an Indian recipe. This tasted almost the same as the butter chicken at our local Indian restaurant, except for the lemon. I may skip the lemon next time, or cut the dose in half, because I enjoy the sweetness of butter chicken and don't see a need for the tartness of the lemon. My husband is from India so he's a good judge, and he liked it a lot. I'm glad, because his mom's recipes are much more time consuming and exhausting for me to make on a regular basis. Thanks for the easy Indian recipe!

Uglies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
First, I have to disagree with those that called these ugly- I think mine were pretty cute! I loved this idea of using the biscuits to make cups, and wanted to make something with them for breakfast. I didn't have any sausage, so I used about 1/4 pound ground beef, about 1/2 tablespoon taco seasoning, and cracked 4 eggs into the drained meat. I scrambled that all together for a minute or so, then filled the cups. I baked according to the biscuit directions (13 minutes at 400 degrees) and then topped with a mound of sharp cheddar and returned to the oven for about 30 seconds or so. They were a big hit with my whole family, and were delicious! After having them this way, I think the sausage might have been too strong anyway. These were just right.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Awesome! This crust was the start of my pie (filled it with Grandma Ople's Apple Pie recipe) and everyone LOVED it. We had it at Thanksgiving dinner and it was soooo good. The crust was the star and was the most talked about part of our deserts. I will keep this recipe and it will be my permanent recipe for pie crust. No need to look any farther.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
My pie wasn't perfect for my first time making an apple pie. But I can see the potential in the recipe if I had more experience. I made a big mistake in forgetting the flour in the sugar butter mixture! I remembered after I had finished my basketweaving on the crust, so I wasn't going to redo it all for the flour. Surprisingly, it was delicious without it. But, there was no syrup in the pie. All of the thin liquid had been absorbed by the apples and crust. But, this wasn't a bad thing, it was still very tasty. Next time I will make it correctly though. The apples were tart and I prefer more sweetness in a pie, so I may also try it with a sweeter apple next time. Regardless, my taste buds couldn't find a complaint with this one. I also used the "butter flaky pie crust" recipe and everyone raved over the buttery crust. All together, even despite my inexperience and mistake, my pie was a big hit and enjoyed by all on our family's Thanksgiving table!

Honeyed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This sauce was very good, but my pork chops were very dry. I see that other reviewers didn't have the same problem, so it must be something I did. My pork chops may have been too thin, or I may have needed to cover them in the oven (I did not assume this and left them uncovered). But other than them being hard and dry, the flavor was delicious.

Honey-Garlic Angel Hair

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This was a quick and easy side dish that had a good flavor. I think I would have liked a little stronger garlic flavor, so I may add more garlic next time. I was planning to serve some sweet white corn separately, but ended up throwing it into the pasta. It was very good!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This was SO good! I like broccoli but was getting SO bored with it. This was a great twist and my husband and I loved it. The kids did not like it, but will probably have to get used to the shock of not having the same old broccoli they are used to.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This was excellent and my husband wanted more. It's not often that he loves something like he did this. I don't have a grill and made it in the skillet with a little olive oil. It probably would have been better grilled because the outside got real done before the center was done, but it was great and we loved the flavor. My 5 year old daughter says she would not like it and then was surprised when she loved her first bite!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I think next time I will try leaving them uncovered, as they were soggy instead of crisp as I could have liked. Good flavor, but soggy and stringy. I will definitely try it again uncovered. The flavors were great. Update: this time I followed some tips and cooked them for only 7 minutes. I still covered them. They were perfect.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
This is the first time in my life that I've made Cornish hens, and they were awesome! I thought the lemon and rosemary flavors were divine together. I didn't taste the garlic very much though. Maybe next time I'll throw a few cloves in each hen? Don't know, but it was delicious either way!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Awesome! I used what I had on hand, which is the only reason I differed slightly from the recipe, and they were great! I used red potatoes (with skin), and rosemary instead of dill to avoid going to the grocery. YUMMMMmmmmmm.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
The name is no lie. These are unbelievably good brownies. The best brownie's I've ever made from scratch with cocoa and no added processed chocolate. My square pan was in the oven already, so I used a round pan and cut them into triangles. Soooo delicious- my family gobbled them up in no time.
