Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
Made it exactly except used just 1 tablespoon sugar. It was perfectly sweet but didn't feel like you were eating dessert. I drained all but about 2 tablespoons from corn and it was a nice combination of very moist but still firm and not doughy. We ate this at our Christmas dinner, got lots of compliments and so I plan to make it again. SO easy too. Great for kids to help.

Starbucks® Caramel Frappuccino Copycat Recipe

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2014
Yum! Made for my guests and they loved it. I did add a scoop of ice cream for extra creaminess....but it's excellent too without it. I used Hershey's Classic caramel Sundae syrup.

Gluten Free Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
I made this for my ladies bible study as a couple of ladies are allergic to wheat. It was a huge hit and everyone (non glutten free incuded) wanted the recipe. I only gave it 4 stars as 1/2 cup sugar is not enough. I tasted the batter before baking and it wasn't even sweet. 1 cup provided that true pumpkin flavor. Definitely add the nuts as it adds great flavor and texture. I served them on cut in squares on flattened muffin liners.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Family loved it and not too spicy - just enough kick. My teenaged daughter even asked me to pack it for her lunch the next day. Liked the simplicity of recipe that besides cooking beef, all other ingredients thrown in together at the same time to cook. Made it exactly as is - other then cooked on medium heat for half hour with pot uncovered to thicken it. Just FYI, leave the tomato juice - don't substitute. It has a very high vitamin C content - another great way to sneak vitamins in your family's food!

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
My family gobbles these up whenever I make them! Must use Sweet Chili Sauce for dipping for an over the top authentic asian taste!! Chili sauce goes PERFECTLY with these even though I know it's a Thai condiment. (Mae Ploy is brand I use and can find it in my local Walmart). I too doubled seasoning as it tasted too bland as called for. Also, no need to make flour paste. Dipping your fingers in water and smoothing on seams does the exact same job. Lastly, I mix the seasoned pork immediately after cooking with the cabbage & carrots ahead of time and let sit so the flavors blend together. It also makes the vegetables limp so they're fully cooked after I deep fry them. Canola oil works just great if you don't have peanut oil or if allergic. I keep the pork mixture in fridge for a few days and can assemble and fry in no time for a quick snack.

Followed recipe exactly. Good waffles, but didn't taste anything special at all for the time invested in this recipe.

Old-Fashioned Coconut Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very easy recipe and really almost no fail. Was my first time making meringue and it turned out perfect. Only modification in recipe was toasting the coconut for remaining 1/4 cup to sprinkle on top. It's a very yummy basic coconut pie. I will definitely be making again.

Cream-Filled Strawberries

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I made this for a ladies group and it was a hit! A couple of ladies commented how rich the "cream" was. :) I did half with the X cut and then decided to see if scooping out made prettier presentation. I used a 1/4 measuring tsp to do so as it was small enough without scooping too much out. I personally liked the look of scooping out much better and because I made them the night before the tops slid off of x'd ones unlike the scooped out ones. I've made twice now and used sugar free first and regular second and both tasted the same to me. I also used pudding mixture in a tart with strawberries on top with whipping cream. Fast and really delicious dessert idea-try it.

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Yup. Just like I remembered from Greco's in N.B. Didn't change one thing except how to thicken the sauce. The ONLY way it will get the correct consistency (like pancake batter) is to heat all sauce ingredients in saucepan over medium heat, stir constantly and slowly stir in about 1 tsp cornstarch. NOW, it's a perfect recipe. My sauce (although very tasty) was always runny even after barely stirring vinegar in. I then let it chill as meat is chilling as it is better room cool or at minimum room temperature. I Bought Greek gyros bread-do NOT even use pita bread-must be thicker and soft. That is what donairs have in common with gyros - the bread. My southern born children adore this recipe from my childhood which makes me very happy. Thanks DASH!

Cajun Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because it is not a bread pudding that can be served soon after coming out of oven. I was supposed to bring a dessert for a gathering and was so embarrased of how it turned out (soggy, eggy, custard like), that I did not even bring it. However, when I got home later than evening and it was cold, it had firmed up and was more like what I think of as bread pudding should be. It tasted excellent, and was really moist. My whole family really enjoyed it (by then as late night snack). I did follow recipe exactly other than adding pecans and I actually even added just a little more bread cubes than called for. I think it's a very good recipe to make ahead and serve later, but beware of initial custard look.

Cocoa for a Crowd

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
My kids wanted hot cocoa and I didn't have any mix packets. I searched for a recipe that didn't call for dry milk and creamer as we don't keep those on hand. This has just simple ingredients and it was wonderful - very chocolately and smooth. My kids commented how it was better than a mix. We used hersey cocoa and I modified recipe for serving of 8 (which actually just made 4 coffee mug's full). Will definitely use again - thanks!

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
First time making apple butter. I followed directions exactly, except halfed recipe and forgot to adjust cloves so it turned out pretty dark and very spicy. My kids absolutely loved it though and were eating it like apple sauce. This can just be made to your own personal preference as far as spices. I even canned it which I've never done and that was pretty easy too. Just sterilized jars and lid and then gave it a 10 min. bath. Sealed up great. The halfed recipe gave me only 1 pint as it cooks down a lot. Will be making again for sure, thanks for the idea for gifts too!

Wedge Salad with Elegant Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This is a great salad! In a hurry and don't have time to make dressing? Simply docter up bottled blue cheese dressing. I add just a bit of red wine vinegar, milk, sugar and black pepper and it tastes pretty much the same as starting from scratch. Also,as others suggested, real bacon bits really add to it. My kids love this recipe.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Made it exactly as stated, except added blue cheese as suggested - it goes perfectly with this salad. Do NOT omit toasting sesame seeds, it gives it a little Asian flair and it changes the whole taste without it. The dressing keeps well in refrigerator. If you keep the salad items on hand, it's easy to pull out and make a quick salad. I ate it five days in a row for lunch and still am not tired of it! Thanks for my new favorite salad recipe!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Great tasting, made it exactly except added chicken bouillion cube and a diced potato to the vegetable mixture and added garlic powder to the sauce. Also, I already had cooked, cut up chicken and added that to vegetables after they were already cooked. This made way more than a regular pie pan and when I poured the hot sauce over the chicken mixture, it did not soak into mixture, but poured over sides of dish making a huge mess! No one mentioned adding the potatoes would make too much of filling and that you'd have to take some out or would need a really deep pie pan (I have some set aside to make a mini pot pie, so all's not lost). It was great tasting, but not over the top. It seemed like it took a lot of time to make this. I think I'll cut corners next time (such as canned vegetables).

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Absolutely the best brown rice recipe! My family was so upset that I didn't double recipe (no way does it serve 8). We aren't huge eaters and the rice didn't go far enough, so I definitely recommend doubling recipe. The only thing I changed was the garlic salt to garlic powder. I used my own recipe of seasoning salt and used real butter. My kids ate every bit of this and fought over who had the most on their plate. I will definitely be making over and over again - thanks for a fantastic recipe!

Corn and Cheddar Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Followed recipe exactly, except did not put the full amount of cheese (probably little over 1 cup used) as we didn't feel it was needed after tasting. Very flavorful and my whole family loved it! Will definitely make again.

Hot Water Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Yummy! I am on a special diet (Daniel's fast) where I cannot eat many of the things you would normally put in breads so I was excited to find this recipe. I modified this to omit the sugar and shortening and cooked in olive oil. I dipped it in honey and it was very delicious - my whole family loved it! I agree with other reviewer that there is no difference with or without shortening so you might as well save the fat (I did try both ways). I also tried cooking the cornbread in 1/2" canola oil the first time and 1/8" olive the second time I made it and it tasted the same so again you can save calories. I will use this recipe over and over again - thanks!

S'mores

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
You've got to try this is all I can say! My family absolutely loved this and my hard to impress husband kept going back for more. I halfed recipe and made in 8X8 pan. The only change I made was to add about 1/4 cup more graham crackers as the butter sopped up the crumbs and it was more mushy, than crumbly. The crust really makes it, so the suggestions to make extra are right. The extra made just enough to cover top. Per a suggestion, I baked crust for five minutes before adding marshmallows and choc. chips. We ate them both warm and cold, and they are equally good. However, you won't be able to cut them when warm.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
Quick, easy and great tasting - exactly what you want in a cookie. My six year old son made these and they turned out great. I did take the suggestion of some of adding a pinch of baking soda and about 1/4 tsp. of vanilla. We ended up with a dozen large cookies. We will definitely be making these again and they are perfect for children to make as suggested. Thanks for sharing!
