Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
I had an abundance of porkchops and didn't have a lot of recipes to make with them. I jumped online and found this one. This was great. I will make this more often!

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
These were absolutely delicious! I didn't have nutmeg on hand so I just left that ingredient out. I don't think it made too much of a difference. I wouldn't change a thing!

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
Better than any store bought tartar sauce! & so much more worth it because it's easier (more than likely to always have the ingredients on hand) & cheaper! This one was a big winner with us and will be our go to tartar sauce from now on! I used fresh, minced, sweet vidalia onion. Loved it! Can't tell you enough how I proud I am to have found this recipe. Thank you, we will be using this every time there's seafood for dinner!

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
Love it! I added 1/2 tsp. more sugar and 1/4 tsp. imitation vanilla. This is much cheaper than the expensive drinks sold at fancy coffee stores and tastes just as good! I will be using this recipe frequently if not daily.. thank you so much Christy.

Red River Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
We absolutely loved this recipe! I doubled the worcestershire sauce because I knew when I fixed my husbands plate he would cover it in worcestershire so I just saved him the hassle. I have made several different recipes for beef stroganoff before(this is the first one I've made using sirloin instead of ground beef) but this is now our new favorite.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This was extremely easy to make. My husband LOVED it. However I thought it was too spicey but then again it wouldn't be "buffalo chicken" if it wasn't! ;) I will make this again for him.

Zippy Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
YUM! First let me give you a very helpful hint!! Cooking rice on the stove in a saucepan can be very tricky.. most of the time I either let it stick to the pan and burn a good portion of it or I add too much water so that it turns out "soupy" or if I try to let the water cook out of it I cook it too much and the rice becomes mushy.. but I have finally figured out the secret and I won't ever have these problems again! I cooked the rice following the steps in the recipe.. After cooking it for almost 15 minutes it was really starting to stick so I added 1/4 cup of warm water. It cooked out fairly quickly but the rice didn't stick as much.. After the 25 minutes of cooking it was still somewhat hard so I turned the heat off and let it sit there covered for another 10 minutes. The steam in the pan cooked the rice until it was done and since the stove wasn't on it didn't burn! Maybe most of you know this secret but I really thought I had made a break-through in the the cooking world today! Back to the actual recipe-- it was fantastic! I added a chicken bouillon, mccormicks seasoning salt and paprika. I also skipped the cilantro at then end because we don't care much for it. The cumin really gave it a good flavor! It went perfectly well with our ribeye steaks and garlic bread. Absolutely worth 5 stars! Thank you very much Elizabeth we will be making this again!

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
I did use an entire 12 ounce bag of cheese and crushed up 1/2 sleeve of ritz crackers on top. But other than those minor changes I kept the recipe completely as is and I'm sure I would still give it 5 stars regardless we just like the extra cheese & cracker topping. This is an absolute keeper- there was not one bite leftover- infact people were arguing over the last serving. We will make this our "staple" broccoli & cheese casserole from now on and will make it again and again! Thank you for such a great recipe!

Roast Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I triple the recipe and instead of adding the seasoning to the bag with the oil I just sprinkled it on top before I put it in the oven. Everyone enjoyed it very much. I am giving it 5 stars for taste and for being such an easy recipe! I lined the pan with aluminum foil and sprayed it with pam before baking so cleanup was just as simple. We will be using this recipe again!

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
I used the split dinner rolls from the Ingles Bakery. I also used the store brand of beefy onion dry soup mix. I skewered a couple of pickles on each toothpick and stuck on the tops of them. They were so cute and a big hit at the party we took them to! We ended up bringing 4 home and my husband reheated them in the microwave the next day and enjoyed them just as well. I will absolutely make these again thank you for the great recipe! UPDATE: I have made these at least 5 times and they turn out great every time as written but I have figured out a way to make it even better. When they come out of the oven add a couple pickles and a squirt of mustard to each one- with that change this is absolutely a 5+ rated recipe!

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
We are not big on sweet but when I came across this recipe I knew we had to try it. I made it for our weekly game night with our friends. Everyone loved it! I left the salt out on accident, but I don't think that it hurt the recipe at least we couldn't tell. I also think the cooking time should be changed to 25-30 minutes.. I checked the brownies after 15 minutes and then ended up cooking them 10+ minutes more. Even so these were delicious and we will make them again! Thanks for the great recipe!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I didn't have mushrooms to use so in it's place I thawed out some frozen broccoli. It turned out GREAT! I will make this again using mushrooms and broccoli. Also, I think zucchini would work too. I may use only 1/2 of the onion the next time around because my husband thought it was a little much. All in all this was great as written and we can't wait to try it again!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
When I brought the pie out to the people in our weekly game night they told me the pie was way too pretty to eat.. but they ended up eating every last bite! This is the first time I have ever made apple pie. Based on some of the reviewers suggesions I added 1 T. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. It turned out so good! I have seen this recipe on allrecipes for years now and had it saved in my recipe box thinking on day I would try it when I got brave enough. I have never been much of a baker and just this year have really gotten into baking cakes & pies. I can't believe how easy this recipe was! I should have tried it a long time ago. I will be making this again! I also used the "Pastry for Double Pie-Crust" from this site to do the crust. It was great as well!

Pastry for Double Pie-Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I added 1 T. white sugar when mixing the flour & salt. It was very easy to work with I made "Grandma Ople's Apple Pie" from this site and rolled out the top crust then cut it with a pizza cutter to make a lattice topped crust. I never made a pie crust before I have always used store bought but I won't ever have to again! I didn't realize making a pie crust could be so easy! I can't wait to try my chicken pot pie recipe using this crust!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I doubled the recipe and these came out great! They were all gone by the time I had finished cooking the rest of the finger foods I was serving for a party (about 30 minutes alone with 12 people) So I am basing my review on my husbands word of how they tasted and my experience cooking them. I wrapped each potato up in aluminum foil & baked for 1.5 hr. on 350. I scooped out the insides with no problems leaving some of it intact with the potato shell so they wouldn't break or fall to pieces. I only used 1/2 the bacon that it called for. Everyone at the party made a huge fuss over them! I will be making this again maybe next time I may even get a bite!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I made these the night before our party and they were just as great the next day as they were right when they came out of the oven! They were very moist & chewy and did not dry out in the slightest. Everyone raved about these cookies!

Easy Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Tried this a few years/Thanksgivings back and it was a hit! My Mother-in-law especially loved it & after trying the first few bites (this is after the entire family had been sitting at the dinner table for a while) she said she enjoyed it so much that she needed more. She went back to the kitchen for a second helping, then shortly thereafter she wanted a third & this time she brings the entire pot off the stove & places it directly on the dinner table & then everyone joined in & scraped the bowl! It is honestly that good & obviously a very impressive dish! It can be very versatile, you can adjust the amount of broth, etc to your liking & try different things with it. Since finding this gem we have made some minor changes, altering it making an easier version of a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner that can be used all year long & you don't have to bake an entire Turkey to enjoy it! And you can make it even more easily & save time by using a crock pot! Just buy turkey breasts & bake or boil them. Then after making this gravy recipe transfer it to a crock pot. Debone & "shred" (we actually leave it in big chunks) the turkey & add it to the crock pot. Let it simmer & mix together while you make cornbread dressing to go with it. Then there you have it, the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner with out all the fuss! I'd say this is the best & most used recipe I've found online! Recommended highly! Thanks 4 posting!
