Cucumber and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
I did not care for this until I added 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup canola oil. I made it without at first and it was way too tart for me. I then mixed the sugar and oil together and blended in the vegetable/vinegar mixture. It was really good with the change.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
THIS WAS GREAT WITH MY CHANGES. I MADE THE SAUCE USING 2 CANS TOMATO SAUCE, 1 CAN STEWED TOMATOES, 3 T. BROWN SUGAR, 1 T LEMON JUICE AND 1 TSP WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE. I USED 1/2 LB. GROUND BEEF AND 1/2 LB. PORK SAUSAGE WHICH I COOKED FIRST SO I COULD POUR OFF THE GREASE. I ADDED 3/4 CUP SAUCE TO THE MEAT MIXTURE ALONG WITH 1 CAN CHOPPED MUSHROOMS AND OTHER INGREDIENTS LISTED. ALSO ADDED SOME FRESH BASIL. PUT THE ROLLS OVER CABBAGE LINED 9X13 PAN (THIS KEEPS THE ROLLS FROM STICKING). BAKED IN 350 OVEN TIL HOT AND BUBBLY.

Fresh Strawberry Pie I

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I used the entire gel mixture for one pie which had strawberried piled high. After pouring the gel over the strawberries I was afraid it would not set up as it seemed a little soupy. However, it set up perfectly in a couple of hours. It is as someone said "fool proof". My husband said I used a little too much gel mixture but it was needed to hold the strawberries together. It was quite tasty!

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
I omitted the sugar in this recipe and it turned out great. I think the sugar would make it too sweet. It was just perfect - the right amount of sweetness from the condensed milk!!!!!!!!!!

Caramel Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
This is delicious. I did not notice it said to use "chopped" pecans and I used pecan halves. I think it turned out great. The pecan halves were very good with the coating.

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
My husband and I loved this recipe. The only change I made was to cook the asparagus 2 minutes on each side. We like our veggies crunchy.

Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
THESE WERE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. I DID CUT DOWN ON THE MOLASSES - ONLY USED 1 T. BECAUSE I THOUGHT 2 MIGHT BE A LITTLE TOO MUCH. THEY WERE PERFECT!!!!! GOOD TO EAT ALONE OR WITH STEAK, HOT DOG OR HAMBURGER.

Apple Hermits

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
I made these today for a Pot Luck at church and everyone LOVED them. I did put my egg and raisins in a blender to chop the raisins fine. I also made an icing using butter, milk and confectioners sugar and spread thinly on top of cookie. I could not believe how fast they went - DELICIOUS!!!!!!!

Shrimp Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
I thought this was a little bland. I added Old Bay Seasoning to the sauce and it helped quite a bit. I also used cream cheese instead of mayo per another reviewer. I also mixed the Parmesan cheese in, instead of putting on top. I find when you put it on top sometimes it burns. Worked well to mix it in.

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
My husband claims to only like his chicken fried. However, he thought this was very good. Some say it is a little bland. I used cream of chicken soup with herbs and thought it was just perfect! I also flattened the breasts a little and covered the top with Swiss cheese - using 1-1/2 slices. Very moist - very good!!!!!!!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
This was delicious. I took the advice of others and cooked it in an oven bag at 250 for 5 hours. After 4 hours I opened the bag and took out the orange slices and put in the cabbage. I forgot the apples but it was great without. A definite keeper.

Elegant Oyster Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
This was excellent. I wanted to make half the recipe and did not want to open a second can of chicken broth for just 2 ounces so I used 1 can broth and 3/4 cup cream. For half the recipe I used an 8 ounce jar oysters and would have liked more. Next time I will use 12 ounces.

Nana's Mashed Turnip

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
This was fantastic. I used 3 medium potatoes and 3 medium turnips. I also boiled some diced onions with the turnips/potatoes. I probably could have used a little less milk. Next time I will gradually add the milk until I get the proper consistency.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
These were excellent. I did not cook peppers in boiling water. I filled them raw and they came out of the oven a little crunchy - really good. I did add some italian seasoning to the beef mixture. I also added 1/2 can tomato bisque soup to the beef mixture. I used the other 1 1/2 cans to make the gravy that went over the peppers. Instead of water I mixed the tomato soup with some milk. Before filling green peppers I put 1/2 slice swiss cheese in bottom. After baking 25-30 minutes I put a slice on top and baked til melted. Another success for my husband.

Crispy Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Dill Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
I finally found a cucumber recipe my husband loves. He likes a tart dressing and with only 1 tsp. sugar, this is it! I made full amount of dressing but only used 1 cucumber, 1 tomato and 1/2 cup onion and felt it was just the right amount of dressing. I also let it marinade a little longer. This was more than enough for the two of us.

Lemonade Pie IV

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
I took the suggestion of others and used limeade instead of lemonade. It is great. Not too tart - not too sweet. SOOOOO easy to make. Will definitely make it again, and again, and again!!!!!!!
