Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
The taste was great but the consistency was off, I think its simply a cheese/egg issue, instead of creamy it was sorta clotted, It looked not so great but tasted well, next time I will omit the egg and sub in some sour cream, maybe a cream of broccoli soup as well.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Scaled to 6 serving and it made a true 6. I listened to Corrine and added a packet of McCormick beef stew seasoning, Next time I will just leave it out, it made it thick and overly seasoned (until I added water). I couldnt see the reasoning behind making her other changes and over complicating things when the pot of crock pot recipes are to make quick and easy meals. I did use beef broth in leiu of water for the original recipe, I think thats all I would change. And maybe add a splash of red wine. Great hearty, its cold outside kinda recipe.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Great recipe. I doubled the sauce using beef broth instead of water leaving the cream cheese the same and really just didnt feel like chopping onions so I used a half of a packet of onion soup mix, next time I'll throw the whole packet or chop some onions. I also threw in some peas at the end, I only had a little over half a cup and not enough to serve as a side. Served over egg noodles and it was great.

Amish Yumazuti

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
After reading the reviews I determined some changes needed to be made. I used 2 cans cream of chicken with 2 tbs milk and an extra can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chiles (combined with the regular). I had a green pepper I needed to use and I threw in a 1/2 cup frozen peas that I wanted out of my freezer. I also added a little extra garlic in powder form as well as a tsp of hot sauce (a mild version) for some extra flavor. I'm glad I did, it would have been a little bland. I wound up not having shredded chedder like I though so I used a mozzerella and swiss, (next time I will run to the store and buy the cheddar. I also cheesed to taste. The kids loved it and it was nice comfort food meal. Next time I will not use tomatoes green chiles as it threw it off.

Smothered Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Nothing outta this world in my opinion but my children ate it up with sheer gusto and my 8year old (who ate twice as much as usual) asked for it again. This will have to go down into kid favorites. I would rate it a 3 my husband gave it a 4 and my son a 5, I'm sure my 2 1/2 yr old daughter would have given it a 5 if she understood allrecipes =). I didnt have any browning sauce so I used worcestershire sauce and some brown gravy mix from a packet.

Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Awesome recipe, my snow bird in laws brought over all these ingredients before they migrated south for the winter and I was looking for a way to use them seeing as we're not beer drinkers. Fantastic, my only complaint is that it was a little acidic so I did add some sugar to offset that. I also halved the recipe which by any normal standards would feed 8-10 adults. The only real change I made was subbing parsley for the cilantro as I didn't have any on hand and didn't feel it required a special trip to the store. I served this over rice, my husband suggested I make this and serve on hoagie rolls for football Sunday. This one will surely make it into my recipe book.

Black Cat Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
After reading the reviews I decided add the candy corn before they were done baking and then return them to the oven. It was a mess they bubbled and melted which makes sense. The rest I added the candy corn eyes after they were through and it worked out great. I used M&M's for the noses and made 4-6 whiskers on each side (8 was over kill) I also used the side of the fork and made them individually and they turned out much better. They taste was great sorta like a brownie cookie. After trial and with the baking time I came to 7-8 minutes in the oven, my only complaint is they were a little to hard when they cooled. This however didn't stop the kids at school from digging in, neat idea.

Edible Spiders

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
My husband made these for our sons school Halloween party yesterday (while I was making the black cat cookies off of this site). These tasted awesome and looked terrific. He squished the marshmallow a bit for a more realistic body. I didnt pick up any mini m&m's thinking I could use frosting at the end. It would have worked. Instead of running out my husband hand rolled little bits of taffy into 48 little eyeballs. I figured trying to drizzle the chocolate would make a complete mess so I put the chips in a double boiler along with some candy wax and dipped them with . It went rather quickly that way. They were awesome.

Easy Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
Not to terrible but it was rather bland. I made as is next time I will make these changes: Salt the eggplant slices before breading. do an equal parts parm / italian bread crumb mixture. I will roast garlic until soft enough to form a paste and lightly spread on top before adding a dab of red sauce and mozzarella cheese. It's less easy I know but with really improve the taste.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Turned out fantastic. I did as others suggested and doubled the sauce while cutting the sugar in half. I also omitted the orange peel as it really didn't need it. Next time I will reduce the vinegar by 25% and use mixed OJ to replace the 25% vinegar omission. Really very good. I will make again.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
This is now my best clam chowder. It was fantastic! I made it pretty much as is with only slight changes. I used 4 cans of clams, next time I will use 5 because the hubby loves a lot of clams and use whole BABY clams. I will nix the carrots as it is I just used half a cup but the hubby dislikes like cooked carrots so he wasn't crazy about that and quite frankly I've never had carrots in my chowda. Next time I will try it adding some bacon as was the other half's suggestion and I didn't even mention the other reviews to him. And I used clam juice instead of water. An 8oz bottle with the juice from 4 cans of clams was enough to cover the veggies. The red wine vinegar in it was outta this world! never in a million years would I have guessed it. What a superb super secret ingredient! This is getting written in my family favorites book tonight! I served it it warm bread bowls, perfect for a cold rainy new england day. Side note: we like our chowda thick so I cooked it a little longer to where it was thicker than pancake batter before adding the veggies and juice. Perfect! If its to think for you then it can be thinned with a little milk. ****Update**** I entered this in a Contest and took second with it after my husband said there was no way a flatlander could win in New England with Chowder. It was my first time trying to reheat it in a crock pot, I made the night before and didnt add the clams or red wine vinegar as well as left the potatoes and veggies a little more firm. 3

Apple Kielbasa Coins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
This was good. My husband gave it 4 stars because he found it a little too sweet. My son gave it 200 stars LOL. I do this it was a little sweet for me too. Next time I'll try cutting back the jelly and maple syrup and add some fresh apples instead. This was great for a quick we're in a hurry kind of dinner.

New England Clam Chowder III

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
needs potatoes for sure, definatly needed to be scaled back. But the idea of thickening with a roux was such a brilliant idea. I use a roux to think all my gravys but never thought to use it in my chowder.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
All we can say is wow!!! What a fantastic way to use fresh picked apples. To the sauce I added 2 tsp vanilla and 1tsp cinnamon because no apple pie should be without it. Its tasted just the the pralines from Savannah's candy kitchen. Tomorrow morning I'm going to add pecans and chopped apples and make stuffed pancakes with this sauce. Its soooooo good and I'm not even a sweets kind of person!

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
VERY GOOD! I made this as a dessert to try out on everyone today as I'm looking for that special recipe to win an apple baking contest I will be competing in. I changed this recipe a little, first I diced the apples and added the sauce to the apples. I used a double pie crust which I rubbed with cinnamon and sugar on both sided. I then used a slotted spoon to fill the crusts with the apple filling spooning a slight amount of sauce in the center. This made 12 dumplings which I put in foil muffin liners (to save my bake ware). I added cornstarch to the sauce and cooked on the stove to thicken into a syrup and added a little caramel after tasting. After baking the apples for 20 minutes I topped them with some syrup and baked for another 20. I was afraid of having a soggy bottomed dumpling but it turned out great. Next time I will thicken the syrup and add it to the inside of the dumpling as well as the outside.

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
These were good, not wow but good. It felt like the meatballs were missing something. Not enough of a sweet and sour taste for me. Dont get me wrong these arent bad, my kids liked them alot but my husband has rather become accustomed to the bold flavors I like to cook with. If our taste buds arent set off with sparks then something has to change. I will play with the recipe and update it again later.
