Teri's Key Lime Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
This is the best key lime pie ever! And as a bonus it is quick and easy to make. There are never leftovers. Regular limes work just as well as key limes. You won't be disappointed!

Cherry Pie Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
OMG! How can something so simple be so good?! No one wanted the cherries off the tree because they were so tart. So I got the lot of them. They made a FANTASTIC filling! I added a little cinnamon (maybe 1/2 tsp) and a few drops of almond extract. There may be no pie. Because I keep eating it by the spoonful!

Egg Drop Soup (Better than Restaurant Quality!)

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
This was fantastastic! And ready in 5 minutes! I used a green onion rather than chives (what I had). Also used 1 cup water plus 1 tsp chicken bullion powder in place of the broth. It was so much better than expected! Thanks for a great recipe! I will be having this again soon!

Potato Bacon Chowder in the Pressure Cooker (Instapot)

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
So simple and so delicious! Restaurant quality! Everyone who tried it loved it! It takes a few minutes to get everything chopped. Then it is ready in no time! The flavor is richer and more complex than expeted. I like that it only uses one pot start to finish. I love this Instant Pot! It took about 10 minutes to get to pressure. Then cooked in 5 minutes! Couldn't be easier.

E-Z Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
These are delicious! I didn't expect so much from two ingredients (well. OK, 4. I had to make my self rising flour with 2c flour, 1T baking powder and 1/2 t salt). I had visited a farmer friend and gotten milk from his cows. There was lots of cream on the milk which I skimmed off. So I was looking for a recipe to use it up. I made drop biscuits. The batter is somewhat 'sticky'. The biscuits are very tender yet crispy outside. I am planning to make more and freeze the batter in 'drops'. YUM! (also made butter to put on them. Heaven!)

Cranberry Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
With the topping this is a fastastic jello salad! And am not usually a big jello fan! Two tips. Use the water drained off the cherries for the jello. For the topping less sugar is better. Allows it to compliment the sweetness of the jello. I use 1/4 cup or a little less, rather than the 3/4 cup recommended (with 8oz cream cheese, softened, 1 cup sour cream, and 1/2-1tsp vanilla)

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
These are delicious! What a great way to get your fiber. I had some of this cereal in the pantry. Tried to like it but gave up on it for breakfast. Now I will probably buy it again, just to make these. For this recipe, it takes one of the two bags of cereal. Don't bother to measure. I had to use white cholocate chips; allergic to chocolate :( I'll bet they are even better with dark chocolate. Nice to find a relatively healthy snack that is so yummy!

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
WOW! This was amazing. I had a zucchini that had gotten too big in the garden. So I thought what the heck. I peeled it and too out the seeds. Maybe others who thought it was bitter didn't do this. Even with this 'old' zucchini it takes like tart apples (the lemon juice I guess). Not a hint of bitter. Tip: cook the zucchini until the liquid just cooks off. Otherwise it may be too watery. When I added the 'crust' mixture to the zucchini it made this wonderful thick carmel like sauce. I misread and added 1/2 of the remaining crust mixture rather than 1/2 cup of it. I've made it several times since and always do it this way now. Like other reviewers suggested, I added a little oatmeal to the topping. I made a half batch the first time as I was skeptical. But have now made it multiple times! A scoop of vanilla ice cream will top it off. Fantastic!

Yellow Squash Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
WOW! This is fantastic! My squash plant has wet rot and I am desperately trying to save it so I can make this over and over! I used one box of Jiffy corn muffin mix (baked in a loaf pan) and crumbled it all up. It was more than the recipe called for but seemed perfect. And wasn't soggy as some reviewers suggested. I skipped the sugar as the cornbread is a bit sweet. Most of the squash I precooked/steamed but I put in an extra handful of raw squash. I cut it into pretty small cubes. (Again, added a little more squash than recipe called for) One reviewer suggested not bothering to precook the squash. While the few extra pieces I threw in not precooked added a nice texture, I wouldn't want it all that way. Definitely preboil or steam for perfect stuffing texture. I used butter instead of margarine (because what is that really?!) and added a bit of garlic powder. I had fresh sage in the garden. What a perfect summer dish! I immediately had requests to make it again. Now if I can just save that plant....

Applesauce

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Excellent! I have been making applesauce using this basic recipe for years though with much less sugar. But save yourself some time and trouble. If you are using a food mill there is no need to peel or core the apples. Just cut into chunks and cut out any bad parts. The seeds etc will not go through the food mill. For variety add cinnamon, or melt some red hot cinnamon candies into the still hot applesauce. Usually no need to put back on the stove if you run through food mill just after boiling. The sugar/candies will melt just fine. Enjoy!

Spaghetti Carbonara

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
Excellet basic recipie but needs a little tweaking. At LEAST double, maybe triple the bacon. Save 3 Tbls bacon grease. Add 1 Tblsp chopped garlic with the onions. Add salt to the eggs before adding them to the pasta. Double the cheese too! Now better than a restaurant version!

Cherry Dump Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
YUM! My cherries were very tart/tangy so it wasn't too sweet. I substituted brown sugar for some (about 1/4 cup) of the sugar and sprinkled a little cinnamon on the cherries before pouring on the juice. By the way, this is not really a 'pudding'. It is more like a yummy cake with a cherry topping!

This pie is fabulous. For the topping, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and water first. Then add the sugar. Enjoy!

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Fantastic! I left it at a rolling boil about 2 minutes. Texture was perfect and they held together perfectly. Because one reviewer said they were awfully sweet I cut sugar to 1 1/3 cup and they were still a bit too sweet for my taste. Next time I'll use 1 cup. I used a 'heaping' 1/2c peanut butter (probably 3/4 cup). I melted the vanilla and peanut butter into the chocolate mixture until smooth before adding the oats. And I did NOT use quick oats (I saw some reviews that said you must). Either is fine. Cooking oats are less processed and a bit better for you. You cookie might be a little more chewy. I don't think I can tell the difference. Great recipie!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Delicious! And easy to make. The kids are already asking for it again. I used 3 stalks of celery and one small/med onion (a tad more than the recipie calls for but easier than measuring). Perfect.

Caramelized Onion and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Wow! This was fantastic. None of the flavors are overwhelming and they blend well. I added some minced garlic (1-2 tsp) to the onions in the last 5-10min of cooking. Otherwise I followed as written. Very flavorful. Will make again for sure!

Reuben Hot Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Excellent! I no trouble with the noodles... just pushed them down into the saurkraut so they sat at the bottom of the dish in the liquid. I agree it needs more bread crumbs.. and cubes would be just fine/easier.
