Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This was really good! It did remind me of the 4 bean salad that my mom used to make. I used Splenda instead of sugar and fire-roasted red peppers instead of pimentos, because that is what I had. Next time I'll cut back the dressing ingredients to about 2/3 because there is a lot more dressing than needed.

Bratwurst Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
One of the best recipes I've made from this site. The changes I made were very few. I browned the brats, then removed and sauteed the carrots, onions and celery. Also added about a tsp. of minced garlic. I also added 2 small Yukon Gold potatoes chopped up. It was a very yummy soup. I will definitely make it again. I think it would be good with Kielbasa. Next time I think I might try using boneless skinless chicken breast as the meat base.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This was absolutely yummy! I did make a few changes but used the recipe for the basis. Instead of bouillon, I used 2 cans of low salt chicken broth. I sauteed the onion & celery in a little olive oil (also threw in a handful of shredded carrots). Then added the potatoes, ham and broth (and a little garlic, salt and pepper) and cooked for awhile until the vegies were about done. I made the roux using 1% milk and added about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Then added to the soup and cooked for a little longer. This was absolutely delicious. It made a lot of soup and I am alone, so froze it in single containers so that I can take it to work for lunch. I love cooking things that I can then save myself the work on work days but still have a good meal. Thanks for the recipe.

Old-Fashioned Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Great recipe. I used tomato sauce instead of juice like many others suggested. It's what I had on hand. I doubled the recipe and the leftovers were great too. I will definitely make again.

Chicken with Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Oh my gosh! This was Thanksgiving in a crockpot!! I did follow the advice of some other reviewers and added an onion and some celery along with some seasonings. S & P and poultry seasoning. I used the cornbread stove-top stuffing but mixed with low salt chicken broth to cut the fat. I cooked on low for 4 hours and it was perfect. Served with some cranberry sauce along side and some fresh cooked vegetables and it made a Sunday dinner feel like a holiday. Loved it!

Fish Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
This was absolutely amazing. I followed the recipe with very few alterations. Used scallions for the onions and I forgot to buy the parsley so I used dried parsley. Also used fresh garlic instead of powder. This was definitely a restaurant quality fish dinner. I wanted to practice it before making for company. It passed with flying colors and will definitely be making it for them. Thanks for the great recipe!

Cottage Dill Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This is the best bread I've ever made in my bread machine. I followed the recipe except I didn't have any dried minced onion (used onion powder) and used dill weed instead of seed. Yummy, yummy. Light and very soft bread. Makes really good toast and great sandwiches. Love it!!! Also forgot to say the yeast measurement is definitely wrong. Used 2 1/4 teaspoons. Just right.

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
This was really good. I did not use the hamburger, just sausage, but a little over a pound of it. Also, used dried basil as others did. It made a lot of soup, but sure was yummy and great on a rainy day in the Northwest!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I've made this a few times, but had never reviewed. I just made again yesterday and determined I really needed to review. It is such a simple recipe, and yet the flavor is so good. I didn't change a thing (a rarity for me). The beer gives such a nice tang in the background. I sometimes don't bother with the sandwich, just serve with mashed potatoes and vegies and my family loves it!!!! Another bonus, it makes the house smell so good!!!!

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Really good. I followed the recipe except I used Italian bread crumbs so I left out the extra Italian seasoning. I did the mayo lemon thing and think that's definitely the way to go. Also, breaded both sides and baked on a rack over a cookie sheet. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!!!

Crispy Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Great recipe! I also floured the fish first as others did. The mustard added a really nice flavor to the coating.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
These were yummy, yummy!! No changes needed. I did have canned black beans with jalapenos on hand, so I used those and they added a bit more of a kick. Put a little low fat sour cream on top. Really good meat free meal. I will definitely make these again and again!!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
This was a very good salad with a bit of a difference because of the Mexican spices. I did cut the oil & vinegar in half. Left the rest of the dressing ingredients the same and it was perfect. Left out cilantro, because I don't like it. I'm taking it to my work picnic this week. We'll see if it gets as good of reviews as I think it will.

Kidney Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
This is a recipe from my childhood that I had totally forgotten. Never had it with celery, but I'll give it a try. My mom always chopped sweet pickles for it, so a little bigger chunks than using relish. I'll try it though. And I think that the mayo needs to be added a little at a time. It shouldn't overwhelm the salad which sounds like a problem that many were having. It should just coat everything, not get soupy!!

Buttermilk Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Oh my, very good bread! Soft and fresh tasting. Makes great toast. I did adjust the yeast to 1 Tbsp. and the salt to 1 1/2 tsp. Also, used bread flour. Perfect.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I made this for breakfast this morning and loved it. I cut the recipe in half except I used 5 eggs as others had suggested. Also, used mozzarella instead of swiss because I didn't have any and it was a last minute decision to make it. I cut the cook time to 30 minutes because I halved it and it was perfect. I definitely do again and I think it would be great with spicy sausage also. Yum!

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
These are delicious! I liked the idea of adding some sweet to it. The only jam I had in the house was a mixed berry flavor, so I added a thin layer on top of the cream cheese before putting the top layer of crescent rolls on. Very yummy! I cut the recipe in half. Otherwise, followed the recipe. I would like to try it with apricot jam. Definitely a yummy decadent dessert!

Mom's Baked Egg Muffins

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
I loved these. Didn't use the maple syrup though. I've made these several different ways. Different meats (or no meat) and different cheeses. Yummy!
