Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
Made breakfast for dinner tonight and decided to make these as well. All I had in the fridge was the home style grands. This can only had 8 biscuits. I used only 4 of them and cut them in half (some were successful into thirds). I sautéed the onions and peppers using some bacon drippings. Also used bacon instead of sausage ( again used what I had on hand.) I used 3 eggs, though I think next time I will use 4. The 4 grands filled 12 muffin holes. My boys (4 & 10) ate them. They liked the portable breakfast. I froze the rest, gonna try it out tmrw morn to see how well it reheats/tastes. Bottom line, if u use grands, cut it in half or thirds, so they won't rise up too much. These were great ! EDIT: Tried these today and nuked them for about 30 sec from frzn. Great easy brkfst! The crusts become softer if you microwave them. I also reheated one in the toaster oven, and that one became crunchier.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2013
Made this last night. After reading tons of reviews, I decided to omit the oil altogether. I doubled the sauce, and used 3 large bone in chops for our family. Marinated the chops with 1/2 the sauce for about 1.5 hrs. Baked the chops in foil lined casserole dishes. Clean up was a breeze! Sauce thickened a bit in the oven. Entire family devoured this! Keeper! Will try on chicken next.

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
This was fantastic. I used chicken Italian style sausage. I also added a quarter of a head of cabbage (had to use it up before it went bad) with the rest of the veggies. Used only chicken broth instead of white wine. Used it to deglaze the pan and poured it all into the baking dish. Both my 9 yr old and 3 yr old gobbled it up.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I made this with my son today. I must say, these were so tasty. I used 1 whole cup of unsalted butter instead of the flavored shortening. The only other minor changes we did was add chocolate chips instead of raisins, and substituted 1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 3 tbsp water (in lieu of one egg). The cookies came out great and smelled wonderful. These were HIS cookies. My toddler loved them too. Now let's see if dad will try them (he's not a fan of oatmeal, but loves choc chips!). Great recipe try it!

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Made this for dinner last night. Used up all the potatoes I had before they went bad. I also cut up a celery stalk, in addition to the onion. I used the lower sodium cream of mushroom soup. I followed other reviewers advice and used milk instead of water. Didn't have only cheddar on hand, used cheddar and Colby mix. And used 2 cups of leftover frozen Christmas ham. Yum! I felt Luke adding some frozen corn as it smelled so good. Vi cooked the corn separately, but added it in when I served it. My toddler inhaled it. I couldn't shovel it to him fast enough. My 7 yr old is going through the "everything tastes gross" phase, so it was a battle to get him to eat it. I'll only make this if I have the ingredients on hand. Thanks for the comfort recipe.

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Made these for thanksgiving. This recipe made a ton of both regular size cupcakes (approx 16) and mini cupcakes (approx 24). The frosting was awesome as well, especially with the orange zest. I used pure pumpkin puree instead of canned stuff. You just have to watch the time for baking the mini ones, they cook a lot faster than the regular sized ones. So delicious! This is definitely a keeper!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I used frozen bananas which I thawed in the micro and then let it drain (excess water) in the strainer while put together everything else. I also did add a hint of cinnamon and a tsp of vanilla. YUM. Moist and very yummy. It took a little longer than 65 min to bake, but maybe cause I used who knows how much bananas. I just broke off whatever could come out of my zip bag from the freezer and nuked it. But my 5 yr old LOVED it for brkfst this morning. He enjoyed helping me make this. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sweet Potatoes with Sausage and Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Made this dish last night for dinner. Only had green bell peppers on hand, so I used that. I diced up and boiled separately while cutting up rest of veggies. I also added some garlicand used turkey sausage (not the crumbling kind). Maybe that is what turned it a bit. My 5 yr old thought it was too spicy (even with the mild salsa). I somewhat liked it, esp over rice. I might make this again, but only if I'm not the one who has to eat it all. Chances of that in my house is very likely since no one else likes salsa.

Best Easy Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Very good. I minced up some red onions (that's what I had on hand), garlic as well as some red pepper. Sauted those veggies with some EVOO (lightly). Also had no breadcrumbs, substituted by grinding up some cracked pepper triscuits. YUM! Came out great. Formed the patties, placed them in the fridge for only half an hour, rolled them in more triscuit crumbs and pan fried them with PAM. Came out delish. My 5 yr old didn't want anything fancy with them, just a hamburger bun, so well I followed and well it's different, but so delicious.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
Followed other's advice, used only one stick of butter, added fresh parsley and about 3 big cloves of garlic, along with thawed frozen shrimp. Needed noodles in a rush so I used Ramen noodles. My son isn't a big shrimp fan, but loved the noodles with the sauce. Easy to make. Will do again, thanks!

Homemade Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
This was very easy to make. I used Almond extract and vanilla. Gave it a four cause it has a nutty flavor (used the nut extract). Next time I'll just use straight vanilla. My 5 yr old gobbled it up along with blueberry pancakes. YUM.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
YUM! I followed recipe to a T. I first brushed some olive oil all over the bird and seasned it with poultry seasoning, garlic powder and salt and lemon pepper. I also added some cloves of garlic and tucked them in the bird, and around the wings and legs. Very tender and juicy, had tons of leftovers and made a casserole dish the next day with leftovers thanks!

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
Sorry, tasted too much of the mustard for my family. I liked it the next day cold with my tossed salad. But no one touched it. This has too much mustard in it.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
This is a great recipe, made this twice now. I followed the recipe exactly the first time and it was so juicy (except used regular organic milk). Second time made it with reg milk again, and instead of breadcrumbs, used quick oats (healthy stuff), added some garlic powder and a dash of black pepper. YUM. My 4 yr old ate it both times, and hubby loves it too, it's a keeper. Next time I'll try to make it with ground turkey instead of beef. Tasty. **UPDATE** Been making this recipe since I found it on the web. Hubby prefers this way instead of buying frozen patties. I just buy a bulk of grd beef (mix in a little turkey) and make a bunch of homemade patties to freeze. He loves them this way. **UPDATE 12/3/08** It's better when you use fresh garlic cloves instead of the jarred ones. Hubby did notice the difference. I finely ground the oatmeal to resemble bread crumbs. Last time I didn't, DH noticed that it was "healthy". Oops. So now he doesn't know and we're all eating a bit healthier.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Gave it a 4 cause it seemed like it lacked a little bit of oomph for flavor. Took the advice from others and I added some crushed garlic and diced onions when I browned the chicken. Also added a can on mushrooms (didn't have fresh). I deglazed the sherry in the pan getting up all the bits of garlic and chicken from the pan. That helps take away the alcohol taste if you're worried about that. I had to use up a sour cream container so this was perfect. I did forget to add the butter in the mixture, so I added it in the baking pan in bits and pieces and did my best trying to mix it. Overall it's a good recipe, nice twist on the traditional cream of mushroom style. Will try again with added veggies.

Grandma's Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
EAsy recipe, still recovering from a cold and had lots of veggies to use. I also used a 46 oz jar of low sodium v8. Added some italian seasonings, cayenne pepper (trying to kick this sore throat), and various veggies that included mushrooms, canned green beans, edamame, canned corn, carrots, onions, celery, zucchini and some red peppers. I also had to thin it out a bit with a can of veggie broth. YUM. It made a lot of soup, but thank goodness it's not too hot yet to still eat it. FYI--cayenne pepper was only a pinch, it adds a kick to it but helps cures sore throats!

EAsy to make, it was alright, I think I'll tinker around with different sauces for marinades. Thanks for the idea.
