Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
One of my favorite recipes. I just made this for a scouting event and thought I would be able to bring leftovers home. Wrong! It was devoured and I had two people ask for the recipe. It was easy for them to remember the name 'bodacious broccoli salad'. Some tweaks to make it perfect: 1) use less onion. I love red onion but a 1/2 onion would be enough. 2) go light on the red cider vinegar. Definitely taste the dressing as you make it to be sure it has the right amount of tang or sweetness for you. 3) adding a 1/2 cup of dried cranberries was perfect in this. I can't wait to make this again. I may try sunflower seeds next time. Thanks for a great recipe.

Apple Betty

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2001
This was so delicious. I cannot believe how easy it was to make also. My husband and I could not get enough. He told me that I could make this for him ANY time. Thanks for the great recipe, Barbara.

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
I made this dish this evening and it was so yummy! I think it needed a little more salt, but it was so creamy and delicious. My kids loved it and the 4 year old had a second helping. So that's always a good sign. Thanks for the recipe.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
This recipes was absolutely excellent. I like fish and normally I think salmon is just okay. But the ingredients in this recipes really made all the right flavors pop out. I much enjoyed the honey/Dijon mixture. The fish was cooked just right. DELICIOUS! I would definitely make this again. Thanks Arnie.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
This is a DEFINITE keeper. So delicious and wonderful texture. It is a litte sweet (and I have a sweet tooth). I didn't even use the full amount of brown sugar. I took a touch out. So some of you may want to cut the brown sugar in half. I really enjoyed the flavor of this recipe. The use of ginger is unique, but it's not an ingredient you can readily identify. I think that maybe using the saltine crackers adds a special flavor that you can't get with the use of plain bread crumbs. My husband LOVED this recipe and I'm pretty sure we'll be making it again. Thank you.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Outstanding recipe and perfect for a cold, winter day. I doubled the recipe and added a can of cream of chicken soup since I had no bouillon. I needed to add some extra salt and may need to add more milk to it since it's gets thicker as it sits. This is a keeper. I'm sure I'll be making this again.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
I made this mix with most of the ingredients listed minus the cardamom. That's a bit expensive. However, I may need to try it sometime because the mix, although very good, seems to be missing something. I just wish it was a little more creamy and frothy like the "famous bread company" Chai Tea. I added a little pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg and pepper. My husband loves it and put it in his coffee for a real jolt. I also used Splenda instead of sugar. I used about a cup and a half of it and it's sweet, but I have a sweet tooth and would like it to be a touch sweeter. I'll probably go for the full two cups of sweetener next time. Thank for the recipe. I think it's a keeper.

Smothered Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
These are wonderful. I just made them for dinner and my husband couldn't stop eating it. He said that he would serve this in his restaraunt. (He doesn't actually have one, but he always talks about the restaraunt he would love to own and what would be on his imaginary menu). He kept asking me about the recipe and what was in it because he said there's something in it that he really like. He was sopping up drippings with crusty bread. The only things I changed were adding a splash of Worchstershire (sp?) to the veggies and I didn't have celery so I omitted that. This was a winner.

Chocolate Cherry Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2003
I have to give this recipe five stars for several reasons. #1: It exceeded my expectations. I was not expecting to like this cake very much because it contains cherry filling and I don't really care for cherry fillings in cakes or pies. However, I made this recipe for my husband. #2: This cake was so moist, it was just wonderful. After I mixed the ingredients, I thought it looked a little thick. So I added about 14 cup of milk to the mix. #3: This cake reminded me a bit of Texas sheet cake. But the cake has such a great texture. It's soft, almost chewy, yet moist. If you are looking for a mix that actually has a separate filling, then this is not for you. The filling becomes part of the batter which is unique. You can't really even tell there's cherry filling in it. For someone who doesn't like cherry filling, I REALLY enjoyed this cake. I was pleasantly surprised and I'll probably be making it again.

Graham Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 10, 2004
Excellent! This is so good. I made this Mother's Day weekend. When I started eating it, I couldn't believe how good it was. Moist, tasty and just delicious. I took some to my mom and she thought it was great. She didn't think I made it, but rather that it was store bought because it was so good. I will definitely be making this again. I think the only change I made was that I used pecans instead of walnuts. It was perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Outstanding recipe. I was looking for the perfect winter comfort food and this was it. I've made pot pie the 'quick way' with cream of chicken and biscuit mix. I think I can throw that old recipe out. This was so tasty and creamy and real-tasting. My family devoured it and my dad who normally eats like a bird had two substantial helpings. I did make a couple changes though. 1). I prebaked the bottom pie crust for about 10 minutes, then let it cool. 2). I used a rotisserie chicken, pulled off the bone and diced. It was a time saver. 3). The recipe calls for throwing out the water that you use to boil the chicken and veggies. Don't pour it down the drain, but reserve it and use as part of your chicken broth for the sauce. That juice has so much flavor in it. 4). I did add about 1 tsp. of garlic powder but I didn't need much else in terms of spices (except salt & pepper). The rotisserie chicken has all the flavor in it you need. 5). I doubled the overall sauce mixture, but I still used 1/3 cup of flour and about 1.5 TBSP of corn starch. 6). I let the mixture slightly cool before pouring over chicken/veggies. This way it was able to thicken even more. I'm sure I will be making this again sometime soon. This is the best pot pie ever!

Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
These were outstanding. Exactly what I was looking for when I made dinner for my husband and I last night. It was simple and delicious. I was worried about it being too simple, but they came out perfectly. The scallops were not overdone, the flavor was just right. The three other ingredients do not take away from the natural flavor of the scallops at all. The only change I had to make was with the garlic salt. I did not have any, so I substituted with onion salt and it turned out to be delicious. This is one of my all time favorites and I hope to make it for family/friends next time.

Baked Onion Dip I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
This is awesome. I was looking for the actual recipe of something my sister-in-law makes. However, she uses red onions instead of vidalia. Also, she mixes the ingredients, puts a dollop onto sliced french baguette bread and then bakes it. This solves the grease problem because the bread absorbs the oil and it makes the bread extra crunchy and tasty. YUM YUM YUM!

Cream Cheese Bars II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This is one of my all time favorite desserts. It's so easy and so yummy. I like the finishing touch of melted butter and cinnamon/sugar on the top. It's best served slightly warm, but not too warm or the cream cheese oozes everywhere. If you like the flavor of cheesecake, but want a simpler, faster receipe, this is the one.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Loved this. I made this for a recent Christmas party and it was delicious. Plus, I have friends who are vegetarians, so this is perfect for the non-meat-eaters. I did omit the lettuce as I heard someone else say that it wilts. And for those who like a little kick, adding a jalapeno with the green pepper would give it some nice heat. Thanks for the recipe.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I have been making these for years and always enjoy these. They are a hit with family and friends and they seem to get eaten very quickly. I've made it with and without the sugar/cinnamon mix and melted butter on top. I recommend always adding the butter and sugar/cinnamon. It takes this dessert to a whole different level.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Delicious. This sauce is very tasty and I love the thickness. you absolutely need to double recipe. That ensures you have enough sauce to dribble over some sticky rice. I would not consider it spicy at all though. You could put crushed red pepper or Korean hot pepper paste to kick up the heat. My kids even enjoyed this and that is an achievement.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This is one of my favorite cookies. I used this recipe to make them for the first time and I absolutely love it. I can't stop eating them. I did use slightly more than the cup of white choc. chips. I might use closer to 3/4 cup of white sugar next time to cut the sweet down a tad. Other than that, this recipe was perfect and I'm sure I'll be making these again.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2001
This is a very good recipe. I've used it twice and both times, it went fast. The last time I made it I had guests over and they were working on their second plate while I was still eating my first. It was a race to get seconds. Very tasty.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Grab a cold glass of milk (or hot black coffee) and enjoy a slice of this cake. I served it slightly warm and it is so delicious and the chips still gooey. I did not change the cake recipe itself, but did serve a slice with separate icing. If you're in the mood for a cake so chocolatey it hurts your teeth, try this recipe.
