Quick and Easy Ham with Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
My picky kids loved this meal! I made it, wrapped it in foil, and froze it(all except the marshmallows, because those are added later). I wasn't sure it would freeze well--I defrosted it, cooked it, and everything tasted fine. I used the prepackaged RAW ham steaks, and they did not dry out, they were perfect.

Hamburger Soup III

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
This is a great recipe! I wasn't sure if the tomatoes were supposed to be drained or not. I drained them, and the soup turned out well. I'll be making this again.

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
Surprisingly good! I used a full can of chicken broth, 2 garlic cloves, and 2 teaspoons of basalmic vinegar. I had to drain the broth before I added the cheese. The only thing I'll do different next time is that I will not salt the chicken. The dish is pretty salty already.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
This was excellent. I had to make this ahead of time, refrigerate it, then reheat it in the microwave. It tasted even better than serving it fresh! The flavors had a chance to meld together. I would make this again.

Walnut Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
A complete disaster! My cookies flattened out in the oven and were really crispy and greasy. I thought maybe it might be the type of pan I used (I was using a baking stone) so I tried a regular cookie sheet, but I got the same results. I followed the recipe exactly, and I have no idea what went wrong.

Pumpkin Pie Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
This cake was very good, but plan to eat it within two days of cooking it. We found that it got soggy on the third day. It is a great alternative to pumpkin pie.

Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
This is THE recipe for chicken. I have many similar recipes, but I deleted them all after trying this one. I used chicken tenders, 1/8 cup of Smart Balance light instead of butter, and skim milk instead of egg, and it turned out fantastic!

Simple Slow Cooker Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
This is the best meatloaf ever! I didn't have any sausage, so I just used two pounds of ground beef. Make sure to taste the meatloaf before you add the top layer of ketchup.I ended up scraping it off because the meatloaf was so darn tasty that it didn't need ketchup! (The ketchup didn't enhance the overall flavor, it just covered it up.) My kids even asked for seconds!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
Very good! I didn't have peanuts so I substituted thin-sliced almonds. Most of them ended up stuck to the bottom of the pan, so I wouldn't recommend using them. Next time I will used peanuts!

Death By Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
I used shredded spaghetti squash instead of pasta for this dish and cut the recipe in half for one whole squash. I added smoked sausage, but didn't have any cheese. It was WONDERFUL! My husband had three helpings. I can't wait to try it with cheese. If you decide to use spaghetti squash, you may want to use less oil. It seems like the squash soaks it up and it can get kind of greasy.

Juicy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This was pretty good, but nothing special. I was unclear about what to do with the orange. Oranges don't give juice unless you squeeze them, and squeezed oranges don't typically go into fruit salads. I just ended up not squeezing the orange and chopping it up for the salad.

Mary Anne's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
If you like carrot cake with "stuff" in it, then this recipe is for you. The pineapple, shredded carrot, and raisins make this cake more like a fruit cake. It's the best carrot cake recipe I've ever found, and it's easy. My 10-year-old daughter made it for my birthday. We used a standard round pan instead of a Bundt pan.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2014
This pie crust turned out great! I followed another reviewer's advice and grated the butter with a cheese grater because I didn't have a food processer. (The butter wasn't frozen, just chilled.) I put the dough ball in the freezer because I didn't feel like waiting for four hours, and then rolled it out after 30 minutes. The crust turned out buttery, flaky, and delicious. I'll never used pre-made crust again.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
This recipe is outstanding! To be honest, I thought it was going to be bland based on the small number of ingredients and the simple steps. It turned out to be the best chicken parm I've ever had (and it was even better for lunch the next day)! I used mozzerella cheese over the top because that was all I had, but other than that, no changes.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
This salad is very good. I have had spinach and strawberry salads before that I didn't enjoy--they were always served with a bottled dressing that was too sweet. The dressing for this recipe is just sweet enough. At first I thought the worcestershire sauce would taste weird with it, but it enhanced the flavor and added to the dish.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Oh my word! This recipe is outstanding. I had some not-so-fresh blueberries that tasted okay but had a squishy texture. I was worried about how they'd taste in a pie, but they were great. I followed the recipe as written, except I lowered the temperature to 375 and cooked the pie for 50 minutes. It was a little overcooked, next time I'll check it at 45 minutes. For the crust, I used the Pastry for Double Pie-Crust recipe and made a lattice top.

Kolachky

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
We made these for the first time this Christmas and got a lot of requests for the recipe. We followed the recipe as written, but did not make the poppyseed ones (we don't like poppyseeds). The first time we made the walnut ones I used old honey that had partially crystallized. I used fresh honey in the second batch. The fresh honey ran all over the cookie sheet and made a mess in the oven. The crystallized honey stayed where it was supposed to--I'm using that next year too! The honey-walnut mixture has a taste similar to Greek baklava but not as sweet, and the cookie crust is to die for--buttery, flaky, and delicious. Don't skip the dusting in confectioner's sugar--the cookie needs the sweetness because the crust has no sugar in it.

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
I chose this recipe because it uses sharp cheddar--my husband hates processed cheese. I used low fat cream of mushroom soup, reduced fat mayonnaise, and omitted the seasoning salt. It was delicious and was just salty enough. This is a great alternative to green bean casserole (as much as I love it, I do get tired of it).

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
This cake is by far the best I've ever made or bought from a bakery. It is so flavorful, rich, and moist. I cut the frosting in half (I didn't want four layers of cake, only two) and I still had more than I needed.

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
WOW!! I would give this recipe 6 stars if I could, because it was so easy and only had a few ingredients. We used a strong wheat beer and the taste was amazing. I didn't have any self-rising flour either, so I took another reviewer's suggestion and added 1 Tbsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of salt. It rose just fine in the oven.
