Microwave Bread and Butter Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2014
I was skeptical that these pickles could be this good since they were so fast and easy. Wow was I WRONG! They are amazing. I will never buy bread and butter pickles ever again. I followed the recipe exactly as written, except I did not have mustard seed so I used pickling spice. I can not imagine them being any better. I did can some of them for later. I am hoping they are as good later as they are now. Try these, I do not think you will be disappointed.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
This beef stew is wonderful. I decided to try it after reading the reviews. I was not thrilled with some of the steps but trusted other reviewers who said it was worth the trouble. I do agree..it is worth the trouble. I am not a wine drinker so I had to use red cooking wine. My husband thought it was delicious. We ate it with baked apples and green beans the first time, but ate the leftovers by itself out of a big soup bowl. It will be the only beef stew recipe I will use from now on.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
These are excellent and easy to make. I also made them smaller so they were about the size of ginger snaps. I agree with another reviewer...you must mash them flat if you want them to look like the picture. I made them for Christmas gifts so I used red and green sugar when I rolled them. I also used Crisco baking sticks and the texture was perfect. This is a keeper for sure.

Canned Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Amazing! My whole family loves it. My husband asked me to do more, I had done 21 already. Do be careful not to fill the jars too full. A friend shared a similar recipe with me and it said fill jar 3/4 full. I have found you can put a little more than that but not much. I always have a little bit of the syrup left over so I made a pie using it and fresh apples. Like others I added 1 Tbsp of cinnamon and about 1-2 tsp of nutmeg. 1 jar will make a 9" deep dish pie, so maybe I pack my apples tighter than most. 1 reviewer wrote to boil the 8 cups of water with everything but the lemon juice and cornstarch. Mix the other 2 cups of water w/ the cornstarch and lemon juice. When the sugar mixture is boiling add the cornstarch mixture until you no longer see the white of the cornstarch. I did the last batch this way and it was thicker than the others. I am not sure if the extra step is worth it but if your syrup is not thick enough try it this way. 1 reviewer said do not use Red Delicious. That is the kind of tree we have so that is what I used. We all loved it. I guess it is a personal choice but do not shy away from using Red Delicious. Thanks for a GREAT recipe and all the tips from other reviewers.

My Country Style Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
My husband loves Country Style Steak. I never made it often because I thought mine tasted sort of bland. This was great. Smaller pieces of meat definitely made it more tender. The onion soup mix made wonderful tasty gravy. I did not find it too salty, but I did use garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I will certainly make it more often now that I found this recipe. Thanks Suzanner

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
I made this to take to a family reunion. My sister-in-law has the reputation of making the best peach cobbler around. One of the cousins commented to me that she heard the "apple cobbler" was better than the peach, not knowing I had made it. When she had a chance to taste my cobbler I asked her how she liked it. She said it is delicious! I then told her it was zucchini and not apple. Her jaw literally dropped and she gave me a blank stare. I told her I never tell anyone it is zucchini until after they taste it because people do not want to try it. She said I would have been one of those. It was quite a hit! I had to promise a lot of people that it truly was zucchini. Thanks to this website for another truly great zucchini recipe. My husband still prefers the Zucchini Pie II recipe from this site because he likes the crust, but for a crowd this one is great! I used 8 cups of zucchini I had frozen and had to add some more to it. I think then I boiled them after being frozen they shrunk more than if they had been fresh ones. Please make sure you take the seeds out. I usually use large zucchinis and quarter them length wise. The seeds are easy to remove this way and then when you slice up these pieces they actually look like slices of apple. You will not be disappointed!

Honey Ginger Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I agree with most reviewers, 1 Tbsp of red pepper is TOO much. As another suggested I also added more honey. The extra honey added to the other ingredients made a nice thick sauce. I had some left over fried rice from sesame chicken the night before. I put the shrimp on top of the rice that had some of the sauce from the sesame chicken and it was yummy. I considered looking for a recipe for a sesame chicken sauce when I made the shrimp the next time. I have used both raw and cooked shrimp, while both are good I think the raw shrimp was better. I have been looking for a great shrimp recipe and this is one of the best I have found. It is an added bonus that it is so easy and quick. Thanks!

Crumb Topping for Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Great alternative to a top crust on fruit pies. I use it on Zucchini pie (also from this site) to cut down on the calories. Easy to make and makes a wonderful topping.

Fruit Pie Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I use this instead of a top crust on my zucchini pie (also from this site). It decreases the calories slightly and is very easy to make.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
My husband loves meatloaf almost any way it is fixed. This is one of his favorites. It is somewhat on the "sweet" side, but you should expect that. We really love it and make it often now that the kids are gone.

Zucchini Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Wow, this a great recipe and a wonderful way to use those large overlooked zucchini hiding in your garden. I have made it many times and NO one can believe it is not apple. My husband said it was the best apple pie he had ever eaten before I told him. In order to cut down on some of the calories I have begun using a crumb topping instead of the top crust. It is fantastic either way. Make sure you don't forget to cook the zucchini first. I forgot the last time and the zucchini was crunchy and not nearly as good.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I invited my parents over when I served these. As soon as anyone took a bite they commented on how great they were. They are really easy and make cheap ground beef taste fantastic. Beware when you are grilling though, the oil does make the grill flame up more than usual. I will certainly make them again. Thanks Chris

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
My husband said "I would give it a 5, it is the most moist chicken I have ever eaten." Anything this good that is also quick and easy is a definite keeper. I did use Italian bread crumbs instead, but did everything else by the recipe.

Zucchini Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
Just the taste I was looking for. I did not have shortening so I used 1/4 c veg oil and 1/4 c applesauce. I think the cloves is the key. Another recipe I used did not have it and I thought it was missing something.

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
Excellent. My husband thought it was great. It is a great way to use some of the many zucchini we are getting from our garden. I did use EVOO (guess I watch too much Rachel Ray) and added yellow squash as well. I doubled the recipe and was so glad as there was just enough left over for lunch. I served it with grilled chicken breasts. A wonderful summer meal.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
I let the chicken marinate in the olive oil and garlic a couple of hours before coating and cooking it. I used minced garlic because I did not have any other. I used some garlic salt on the breasts before coating them. I also added some seasoned salt to the coating mixture just to spice it up a little. My husband said "this is one of the better ones. It really appealed to my taste." I think I will try Italian bread crumbs next time. The chicken was very moist and tender enough to cut with a fork. I turned the oven to broil for the last 5 minutes just to make them crispier. I will definitely make this again and again.

No Bake Sugar Free Cheese Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
I made this for my husband who has lost 80 lbs so he could have dessert with the rest of us. He loved it. He would not try it when I made it with sugar free cherry. It was good, but like another reviewer I think 1 3 oz pkg of jello is enough. I made it in a prepared round graham cracker pie crust eliminating the hardest part of the recipe. I will continue to try other flavors. It is a real keeper!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
Fantastic! I love Honey-Baked ham but not the price you have to pay for them. I decided to try this. Pretty bold since I was having 22 people for dinner. It was a huge hit! I bought a 7 lb pre-cooked spiral ham for this recipe. I like many others used brown sugar and only 1 cup of honey because that is all I had. The glaze was not sticky like others said, nor did I have to keep it warm until I had used it all. I did use heavy duty aluminum foil and was glad I did. It leaked out a bit but was not hard to clean at all. I will make this many more times. It is a definite keeper! Thanks so much for sharing.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
Finally a great way to cook ribs at home! I had tried to cook ribs at home several times without any success. They were always tough, even after pare-boiling. They are my sons favorite so I really needed a good recipe. I tried several different sauces the same night and had them pick. Sweet Baby Ray's was the choice but all were good. My family is so happy that I can at last make ribs at home that are eatable and better yet really, really good.
