Wisconsin Slow Cooker Brats

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
These were quick and very good. I used Guinness and a red onion. I also used regular ketchup and spicy ketchup combined and then put them under the broiler. They were great. Can't wait to do them on the grill.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
Excellent recipe!!!! I did not add the nuts (we do not like nuts in fudge in my house) and used Mexican vanilla. If I made this as often as everyone wanted, we would all weigh 500 pounds LOL

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
We liked this very much. I added some garlic powder, freshy ground pepper, a little greek seasoning, worchestershire sauce and a dash of hot sauce. This punched it up for my personal taste but have made it just as the recipe says and even thought it would be too bland for me, it s was very good. I use the corn flakes and really like the crunch it gives. Next time I make it I might add chopped onions and diced hot peppers (I like spicy things)but truly, the recipe is good even without tweaking.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
This was excellent! I think it is the best pork roast slow cooker on here. I put the pork in the crock pot and made the sauce, accidently omitting the vinegar and water (I was in a huge hurry). I rubbed the sauce into the pork and I then went to work. I got a call a about 2 hours later and was told the pork seemed a little dry so I walked a friend how to make the sauce and this time she added the vinegar, poured it over the roast and it was fine. Another friend came in from work, tasted it and his eyes rolled back in his head, he started saying "Oh yeah, yummm" and high fived me several times. Needless to say this recipe is a keeper and will be made often.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
Excellent! I served these with the "Nests" from "Birds Nest Egg Salad" found on this site. I added finely chopped celery, a little bit of celery seed and a touch more curry (I love curry!). I also took others advice and did not use all the Mayo at once. I wound up using about 4 T of it. This was a great recipe and with the nests, it makes a great presentation as well. It looks like a lot of work went into it and very little did.

Bird's Nest Egg Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
This is great. The nests are a great addition to any type of salad. The only thing different I did to the salad was add a dash if curry powder and dash of celery seed. It was perfect. I have served the nests with tuna, egg, chicken and turkey salads in them too. They are always a big hit.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
Tweaked it a bit. I like hot sauce in mine and I used a little ginger, lemongrass, cilantro, red pepper and garlic that you can get in tubes in the produce section. Just a squeese of each. I also used a heaping 1/2 cup of peanut butter and just a little bit of the sesame oil (a few drops). I also did not add the onion. I used raw green onions and cucumber. It is all personal taste but this is a great base.

Cocktail Meatballs II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I have made this for years and it is very good. I have always called them "Grape Meatballs" so people will raise their eyebrows and be skeptical. Then they taste it and enjoy it. I sometimes put a few crushed saltines or breadcrumbs in the meatballs and it does not change a thing (I do this when I have saltines or breadcrums to use up). I serve these as a main course over saffron rice or wide Amish noodles and they are always a hit.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
This was great. I cut the hot dogs up into tiny pieces and increased the amount of cheese. I also used a couple of different kinds of chese. They were excellent and I will be sure to make them again. Next time I might add some cooked bacon or sausage for variation. Since I first reviewed this, I have made them numerous times. I sometimes use smoked paprika and add soy sausage or soy chorizo (which I cook up and have in the fridge), sliced japeno's with some juice, smoked pablano peppers and other things that might make them different for everyone each time. Each time I make them they are a huge hit. It is almost a no-fail recipe and you can add to them what you would like.

Hash Brown Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
This was great. I made a few modifications. I had to skip the green pepper as my family will not eat them so I doubled the mushrooms. I put some cheese on top of the hash brown crust and then poured in the mixture to which I had added a little white cheddar and sharp cheddar plus a little ground red pepper and some Bayou Blast to give it a tad of a kick. I let this cook for about 25 minutes then added a cup of mixed cheeses to the top. I used sharp cheddar, mild cheddar, white cheddar and parmesan (these were the cheeses I had) and it was great. My family rated it an A plus and if you want to have leftovers, you better double it. I think this could be made with any meat and any cheese. Next time when it is just the adults I am going to try ham, jalapenos, onions, green peppers and maybe some sausage or bacon. It is a recipe that can be mixed and matched easily to suit any families tastes from the youngest to the oldest. Great comfort food!

Popcorn Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
This is great. I had to leave off the water chestnuts since I am allergic and have had to use Bac'os once but it was still a big hit. I also alter the types of cheeses so that it has a more exotic flavor. It is always the first things to go and the conversation piece. JUST MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE ALL THE KERNALS!!!!

Instant Russian Tea

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
I make this in the winter and everyone loves it. It is easy and quick and so much better than hot chocolate on a cold winter night.

Mexican Atole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
This is great and I have made it for years. I will often us a combination of water/milk and white sugar/brown sugar to alter the flavor. Some people also add chocolate or mashed berries but I prefer it plain with lots of cinnamon and vanilla. Try this and you will not be disappointed. Also to the person who said cornstarch is authentic....they are dead wrong. Masa is authentic. Also if you have to use brown sugar because you cannot find pilocillio and want a more authentic taste...add a touch of molasses. I usually don't even when using plain brown sugar but some folks do. In addition....Champurrado is pretty much atole with the addition of Mexican chocolate. Both are made with masa when its available (and pretty much is everywhere)

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
This was exellent. It was quick and easy. I served it with mashed potatoes, biscuits and popcorn salad. The BBQ sauce goes well over the mashed potatoes. My family dunked biscuits in the leftover BBQ sauce. I used honey brown sugar sauce but can see how changing the BBQ would alter the flavor. I can't wait to to try it with other flavors of BBQ sauce. Give this recpie a try. You won't be disappointed.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
These are perfect! We marinate them for about 4 hours (easy marinade to fix up and it takes about 5 minutes...if that) and then cook them on the grill. The first time I tasted these I thought I would fall onfo the floor in convulsive seizures of culinary delight (ok that is too dramatic but I am trying to convey...these are REALLY good!). I don't eat meat and had not had a "burger" (I do not like the frozen veggie burgers very much) in a long time. I ate these on hamburger buns with some habanero mustard (I like things hot) and my eyes rolled back in my head (ok..more drama I know LOL). Tonight just made them for the 2nd time and they were every bit as good as the first time we made them. Try these! You will not be sorry!!!

Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
This is, without any doubt at all, the best scalloped corn recipe I have made or tasted. It was sweet but not overly sweet and was not the same boring scalloped corn you get at a lot of holiday parties. This one was a crowd pleaser.

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This was great. I used a bag of frozen mixed vegetables that I cut up to make smaller for picky eaters. I used a can of cream of chicken soup, a can of mushroom soup with garlic and a can of cheddar cheese soup. I also added different kinds of cheeses. I spiced it up with Spike, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and a little fresh ground salt and pepper. It was great! I also made this once with beef (I was out of chicken) and added a package of cream of onion soup mix, golden mushroom soup, a dash of worcestershire sauce and beef broth, keeping everything else the same. This recipe is very easy to adapt. I may make it with ham soon. Pot pies are so popular in my house and this is the best recipe for any of them.

Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
This was great. My family does not like nuts so I left them out and this was still an amazing cake. I highly recommend it! It was even better the next day.

America's Favorite Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
You can't go wrong! Mix and matches the cheeses for variety. Great with a Cherry Coke or Peach flavored soda.
