Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
Outstanding! Some additions to this make it perfect and more wholesome! I boiled a whole chicken and created good stock with veggies and herbs, let it cool, then deboned and used about half the chicken (saving the rest for another meal-freeze in ziplock bag). I sauteed onion, sweet pepper, and celery and put into the pot. Added sliced carrots, several cloves of garlic and a cup or so of frozen corn. Used a few cups of the homemade stock, one can of rotel, and some tomato sauce (could use any kind of canned tomatoes). Used one can of kidneys and one can of pintos. Top with cilantro, grated cheese, and lime tortilla chips. Serve with cornbread or corn muffins. Everyone's favorite! Thanks to all previous reviewers for the great ideas and additions!

Sand Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
This is my families traditional Christmas cookie since my childhood. I lost my recipe and this one is the same, except we call ours pecan sandies. It do think they could be just a tad bit more sweet though. I may use 3/4 c powdered sugar next time. Real butter makes these fall apart soft...like I like them. You can also use one t vanilla and one t almond or lemon extract for a little more variety in taste. My kids liked it w/ the almond extract and a little lemon rind mixed in. Enjoy!

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I used powdered sugar instead..gives a very light texture. I also tried it w/ one t vanilla and one t almond extract and turned out very nicely. This essentially turns it into my childhood traditional family Christmas cookie, pecan sandies. They are our favorite!

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I had to write a comment on this! I have made many an apple crisp, and this seems to take the cake as everyone's favorite! I gleaned from previous reviewers and this came out fabulously yummy! First, I used a "golden (or yellow) butter recipe" cake mix, and did mix it w/ 3/4 c. of oats. I used the amt. of butter the recipe called for. For the apple mixture, I sprinkled w/ nutmeg, cinnamon and a bit of allspice! With the water (about 1 C. I think), I added 4 T caramel ice cream topping and 1 egg. No added sugar. It wasn't too sweet and we even had it for a late, special breakfast (the kids are still talking about our "special breakfast!") Thanks for my new favorite! This is a great treat to bring to a neighbor, by the way...straight out of the oven!

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I'm giving this five stars for this recipe w/ modifications. I think you will really love this if you try it the way I did! I seasoned the chops w/ s,p, and garlic powder, then dredged in flour seasoned w/ pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and some Emrils all-purpose seasoning....& browned in olive oil. On the stove, I boiled the water w/ one large chicken bouillon cube, then reduced, and added one can of cream of mushroom soup. I wisked together about 4 T flour in some cold water and added it to this saice. I let this simmer a little. Poured over chops and onions in crock pot. Right before it is finished, or even after it is done, then add 8 oz. sour cream and stir around. This was tasty, creamy and great served over wide egg noodles and freshly steamed green beans sprinkled w/ lemon pepper. Hope this review helps someone. I think the blandness some complained of will be alliviated w/ the extra seasonings in the flour mixture and the cr. of mushroom soup!! Try it!

We made this dinner for our Passover Seder. What a hit! It both smelled and tasted absolutely delicious. I doubled butter and added garlic to reduction, as suggested.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
Excellent!! The gravy this produces (which I doubled) is good enough to eat alone in a bowl! I couldn't stop sneaking spoonfulls of this gravy! The only thing I will add is that even though I tripled the amt. of everything for the gravy (ie, 3 cups of broth) it was still a bit thick. I made a note to quadruple the broth next time, to thin it out just a bit. I served this over oven-roasted potatoes, and it was just divine. Also, as a note, I did not have beef broth, so I made homemade broth w/ ONION SOUP MIX, which makes a lovely, savory broth w/ onion flavor! I highly recommend this route...it adds even more delicious flavor! Try it..I think you will be delighted with the taste it produces! Thank you, and am planning on making this for visiting relatives in a couple of weeks, as it has now become one of my all-time favorite recipes!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
Tastes beautiful, made exactly as is. This fills 2 9X9 pans for me, which is a lot. We just loved it, but it wasnt' as good the next day, heated up. Super right out of the oven though, and is great, as another reviewer stated, w/ the chicken tortilla soup recipe on this site!

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
The first time I made this I didn't have molassas, and used brown sugar instead, and it was just as delicious as when I used the molassas. Every time I make this I add some DRY SHERRY and would highly recommend this addition! It is just fabulous! I serve this over brown rice (cooked w/ chicken broth) and spinach. I also do this in the crock pot! Yummy...and great for company!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
I have to add my comments here. It is indeed the best lasagna I have ever made. I modified it a bit, due to what I had, but it was fabulous. I did not have fennel, so I omitted it, and I used a can of Ragu, along w/ the tom. paste. I will always use this recipe. Thanks for the submission!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
Second year to do this...sans the savoury. Moist and delicious... Used a gallon of apple juice with homemade vegetable broth. I also used regular salt. Left it outside for 14 hrs. soaking in a huge bucket. Will do this every year!

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
Very nice. I brined for 14 or so hours first, using the brine recipe from this site, then cooked as indicated in this recipe. I also rubbed butter under the skin and stuffed w/ onions, celery, an apple and an orange, and some garlic. Just a nice and yummy turkey.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
Such a winner with my entire family. My small changes make it perfect...I hope they are a help to someone...as I took many other tips from other reviews and combined them. First, I used 1 C of sour cream, butter and some milk (just a tad) in making the mashed potatoes. They, according to my kids, are the best part! The sour cream really does make the difference. I also season them with Lawry's season salt. I sauteed the onions with the beef (used half beef and half turkey..about 1 1/2 lbs. in all) and seasoned w/ garlic powder, worchestershire (about 3 T), ketchup and a bit of steak sauce. I then made homemade gravy: brown flour in oil and make a roux (I do a good bit)...add s and p and garlic powder. Once brown, I add a can of beef broth, then milk to consistency of choice. I mixed the beef mixture with the gravy...so delicious. This was the bottom layer. Next was a layer of corn, then the coarsly smashed carrots, then the potatoes, and a goodly layer of cheddar cheese. Sprinkle w/ paprika and you have a beautiful and savory meal that will be on everyone's request list! This is delicious with a ceasar salad. Note, you can also use green beans or peas in this, in addition to, or instead of the corn. You almost can't go wrong with this!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I just made this for breakfast today, and it is simply moist, lovely and delicious. Everyone in the family loves it. I used 3 bananaas and coarsely mashed them. I also added finely chopped pecans, instead of walnuts. After an hour, the middle did not come out done, so I covered the top w/ foil at this point to avoid further browning on top, and put it back in for another ten minutes. Perfect! Great with butter. Thanks for submitting.

Beef Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
So savory and yummy! Where I live I can not obtain beau monde seasoning, so I used thyme instead, per another reviewer's suggestion. I cubed last night's roast, along with the left-over carrots, onions and potatoes from the pot. I made a nice amount of home made gravy, which is so superior to store-bought and so easy as well. Mixed all and covered with the batter for a home made biscuit mix (can be found easily on-line or on this site). Lovely, and fills a huge casserole..Quite a comfort dish and great served with green beans and a jello salad.

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
This was hearty and nice. I used cilantro instead of the parsley, and the dumplings were just great. I would recommend this. I also spiced everything up a bit and added more seasonings.

After-School Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
Thanks for this submission. Actually, when I rolled it out and tried to take the cut-outs off the counter and on to the pan, they sort of smushed together and did not retain their form. I ended up having to roll them in a ball, then smash them into a circle with my hand in the pan. They actually turned out nicely. My kids loved them. I would still love to find a recipe that will give me a sharp, pungent ginger taste and crispy, like from the store. My kids, however, prefered these. Thanks again..
