Sweet and Sour Zucchini Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Just made minutes ago with only zucchini because that is all I have at midnight, and although I agree that it needs to marinate, but this dressing is AMAZING!! Of course it's a vinegar based dressing, LOVE IT! Onlly added 1/2 c sugar figuring I can add more after it sits overnight if I want, but for now I'm already wondering what else I can use this dressing on. Yes I was skeptical w the onion soup, but genius! Thank you for sharing!

Pickled Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
Great! Followed brine exactly & wouldn't change- otherwise sliced 10 cups yellow squash thinly on mandolin, one large candy onion, no g.pepper. Didn't measure salt, just sprinkled canning salt to squash/onion mixture then tossed occasioanally for almost 2 hours, drained, packed jars, then added boiled brine. Heated lids and allowed to seal without coldpacking, period. I know some would say this is unsafe, but we ate a pint tonight and will refrigerate and eat the rest soon. These turned out great, like bread and butter and we love! Thank you!

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
This is exactly what I was looking for, quick, easy, and delicious. All ingreidients on hand. I buy large packages of bonless chicken breast when on sale and cook in my crockpot, then cut up into 2 cup ziplock quart freezer bags so I can just pull out and use in recipes. Huge time saver. I added some pepper and maybe extra seasoned salt...i just sprinkled on top and didn't measure. I cut the crescent rolls with a pizza cutter then did the lattice work. Thanks for sharing!

I added 7 large eggs, 7 slices whole wheat bread, added some minced dried onion in with my sausage while it browned, and topped with more cheese and some jalepenos. Next time I will topped with thinly sliced tomatoes near the end of cooking. Very good.

Rating now so I don't forget what I've done. Superb. No green peppers, no corn, no oregano. 1 can pinto, 1 can chili beans both drained. 2# ground turkey browned with garlic and onion then all in the crockpot. Cannot believe how fabulous this recipe is! Who thinks of these combinations?! Thank you for sharing.

Venison Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
Very good. Not your usual chili flavor but unique and good. Didn't have cilantro and added 2 habanero peppers. Think I would omit bacon next time just to decrease fat. Thanks for sharing.

Harvey Ham Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
LOVED IT!! Bought a 6.9 lb bone in John Morrell ham that cost about $12. Cooked all night on low with water to the top. Shredded EASILY (bone fell out) after cooling in the morning, added 2 cups of brown sugar (not sure how many cups are 1 lb?) and yellow mustard as directed. Took it to Memorial Day camping and everyone LOVED IT! Thank you for sharing. I may try cutting back even a bit more on brown sugar next time since it is very sweet. I don't want to lose the sweet tangy taste though. We topped with pickled jalapenos and yum! Feeds a crowd and then some and cheap! Thanks again.

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Well worth the effort! Don't be intimated by the dough....I'm not a bread maker and I thought it was easy and not overly time consuming like some other reviews led me to believe. I followed the recipe to a T and even husband who doesn't like beans thought they were great. I will never eat another taco shell. The dough was very sticky when kneading (I used my kitchen aide) but I turned out on floured surface and it was superb. Only took about 2 minutes to fry on each side. I fried in Crisco oil using my wok (we don't have a deep fryer and I'm not into frying...this is the 1st thing I've ever fried in my home and I will do it again just for this treat!) After I realized i didn't need perfect circles and could just fry up I was much happier. Thank you for sharing...this might be my favorite recipe on this site!

Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
I think I was supposed to dip something in this instead of eating it by the spoonful! Defintitely deserves more stars! Cut the sugar in half, 20 carmels, and cooked on water & carmel stove top until carmels were melting then added cream cheese and sugar and whisk smooth. I wonder what leftovers or cold would have tasted like? LOL! Thank you for sharing!

Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
These pickles taste like Vlasics and are super delicious after only 1 day (can't imagine how much better they will get :), but I had my tribulations. First attempt canned 14 quarts attepmting hot lid/hot brine method of sealing. Panicked when the didn't start "popping" to seal after a couple of hours, so I inverted 7 in boiling water for 5 minutes and placed the other 7 upright in boiling water just until boiling. They all sealed, and they are both still crunchy. Second attempt...tried another 14 quarts with hot lid/hot brine method, didn't panic, next morning only one sealed. Attempted inverted method again, 4 jars leaked brine. :( Now attempting upright method but worrying this batch will be soggy. Will update later with info. For those that got a bit soggy, you may try a pinch of alum in each jar..this works for my other recipes. In the future I will heat until just a boil and pull out. Thanks for sharing.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
If you like cake like cookies, these are great. I changed the servings to 18 because I didn't want to waste 1/2 cup of pumpkin after opening a small can. Love these and have been making for years! I sometimes ice with peanut butter icing if I have time (i.e. there are still some left when I get around to it! LOL!)

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Very good, but maybe not "the best"....but hey, it's all a matter of personal taste! :) We enjoyed it. I did cut back on the basil some after reading other reviews, and may take it back to 1/2 the next time....yes, we will make this again because it's very good! I would marinate at least 24 hours, I think we actually did 48, but the longer the better in my opinion. Thanks for sharing!

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
These were great and will make again! Used roasted red pepper from jar which had a nice pickled flavor, yellow squash, zucchini, candy onion, and sweet frying pepper all garden fresh, made dressing as directed with Hellmens. Found focaccia bread rolls at Wal Mart. Grilled the veggies separate to soften then added the veggies, dressing, and feta on the bread and grilled again til toasty. Thanks for sharing! The dressing is yummy and I was skeptical due to not eating mayo.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
BETTER than the coffee shop or bakery! I have tried many cc cookie recipes and always end up back with toll house. NO MORE! I followed this to a t and it turned out perfectly. Didn't refrigerate or anything. (I even used salted butter with the extra salt because I didn't realize it before it was too late and it didn't matter.) I didn't think these were too sweet like other reviewers and I am not into sickening sweet. Mother and hubby LOVED them as well as I. My search is over! Thank you for sharing! (can't wait to add walnuts!)
