Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
This was amazing even after my two year old decided to help by dumping nearly 1/2 jar of onion powder in! I rarely follow a recipe to a tee and this was no exception. I didn't have onions (can you believe it?) so I substituted onion powder-- A LOT-- as my two year old dumped it in when I turned my back. I also didn't have celery, so I used celery salt--- shake to taste. I increased my potatoes to about 5 cups and left the skins on, increased ham to about 1.5 cups, and then increased my milk/butter mixture... 1 cube of real butter, 7 TB flour or so, and an extra 2 cups of water. Finally, I added a can of kernal corn to the boiling potato/ham pot. This turned out PERFECT! Smooth, with a rich buttery taste, and so yummy I couldn't stop eating it even after two bowls! Next time I'm going to try this with bacon and corn and cheddar... the base was perfect!

Cream Cheese Snowball Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
THESE ARE AMAZING! I love Mexican Wedding Cookies and these are similar with the addition of cream cheese and more cake-like--- which is better! I doubled the recipe for holiday cookie plates. MY CHANGES: I left out the almond extract (because I didn't have any and I don't normally like it anyway) and added a tiny bit more vanilla extract. I also used confectioners sugar in the dough mixture to give it a smoother texture. I mixed the finely chopped walnuts into the dough then rolled them in my hands to make little 1.5" balls. They baked for about 10 minutes, I think. I didn't really time them-- I just watched for golden edges. They kept their general "ball shape" and didn't flatten much at all. I let them cool a few minutes on the cookie sheet, then transferred them to a cooling rack. When they reached room temperature, I gently rolled them in a bowl of powdered sugar. My family was eating them as fast as I was finishing them. I love that these have the taste of a Mexican Wedding Cookie, but are softer and have the hint of cream cheese. Great recipe! Thanks!

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I followed the directions exactly except I used "Zesty" Italian. The flavor was great, but the chops were very dry. Maybe it was my chops and not the fault of the recipe. I loved how quick and easy it was to make. We just sopped up the sauce with every bite!

Baked Fresh Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
I decided to make this pie based on the high rating it received. It turned out good, with a few changes. I only used half the sugar because my cherries were sweet and yummy and I didn't want the pie to be too sugar-y. I also think it could have used a little more "thickness" from either flour or cornstarch (not in the recipe). The tapioca wasn't enough. I can't imagine how runny it would be without it. For those who don't normally care for tapioca (like me), don't worry-- you can't taste it. Finally, the 4 cups of cherries it called for didn't seem like enough. I used the 4 cups thinking it would expand with the juices and tapioca, but it could have used more. The pie was "shallow" looking and sunken in.

Cherry Cheese Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
Delicious! Perfect for summer bbqs! I followed the recipe ingredients exactly, but "toasted" the graham cracker crust slightly in the oven (5 minutes or so @ 350ish) to give the crust a little more stiffness so it doesn't soften as easily when the filling is added and sits overnight. I also have no issues with it chilling for only 3 hours. The texture is supposed to be creamy and smooth... not firm. The pie may fall apart when cutting it, but that's to be expected from a pie like this. I highly recommend topping it with fresh sliced strawberries... that's our favorite and looks gorgeous too!

Thunderbird Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
I like to experiment and thought I'd try this combination for my slow cooker beef stew. I knew it wasn't going to make enough liquid for the amount of stew I was making, so I added another gravy package, a mushroom onion soup mix package, a little more apple juice and about two cups of water. The flavor worked out well... a touch of "tang". It just wasn't thick enough!

Very moist and beautiful presentation! It was a hit at the BBQ we attended. I'll definitely make it again. Followed the directions to a "t"!
