Apple Maple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
I've made this several times and it has become one of our favorite treats. Yesterday, when I made this, I didn't have oats on hand so I used 1/2 cup of corn flake crumbs instead. Both my wife and I thought the corn flake crumbs were even better that the oats! I also have cut down on the syrup to 1/2 cup and there is plenty to cover all the apples. Before I put the syurp onto the apples, I sprinkeled cinnamon and nutmeg on the apples. I highly recommend the cinnamon. I can't imagine anyone not liking this!

Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
I added an extra egg and fresh mushrooms. I also used only 1 1/3 cups of milk and it came out perfect for us. My wife and I liked this a lot and both had seconds. If you like quich, you'll certainly like this. The left overs are were just as good the next day! I give this one five stars!

Southern Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
I made this mostly for myself and I didn't think my wife would care that much for it but I think she liked it as much as I did. I did change a couple of things... First, I added 1/2 pound of kielbasa sliced into 1/2 inch slices. I didn't use any of the veggy oil and only 1 tablespoon of butter and I added a few caraway seeds. I cooked the cabbage a bit longer than 10 minutes until it was very tender. The result was perfect.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
A really good five star meal! I left out the tomatoes because my wife doesn't like them. I scalled this down for two and it came out perfect!

Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2006
This is only the second time I've tried to make biscuits and I thought these came out really good. Sometimes it's the simple things that come out really good and this is one of those things. I just patted out six good size biscuits ('cause that's the way my grandmother use to make her biscuits) and put them on the cookie sheet. It did take a little longer to bake because I made them a little larger than called for. I'll use this recipe again!

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2006
I was plesantly surprised at how good this came out. I made the meat without any changes but I bought some gravy at the market eariler and wanted to use it up so I sauted the mushrooms then added the gravy and cooked with the meat. I did use a little more onions and mushrooms than were called for. I fixed this with mashed potatoes, carrots and biscuit bread. Both my wife and I thought it was a wonderful meal. It doesn't taste anything like the TV dinner.... this is a good, easy to fix meal and I highly recommend trying it.

Black-Eyed Pea and Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
Ever since I can remember, my grandmother made black-eyed peas every New Year's Day. I didn't change anything and the soup was excellent. Even my wife had an extra serving! I'll make this again soon.

Basic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
I enjoy making different recipes just to try a little variety. But this basic potatoe recipe is hard to beat. This is the way my wife makes her mashed potatoes and when I want to make a recipe that I KNOW will be really good, then I make them like this. This is the best way I've found yet to make really good tasting mashed potatoes.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
I scaled this from ten servings to five and it still made a LOT of soup. I had some prime rib roast left over from Christmas and I thought beef barley soup would be a good way to use it up. I did add more broth than called for so I would have more soup and I added five small red potatoes. I will use more barley next time. My wife didn't like it as much as I did so I'm giving it four stars. MMMMM good!

Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
I did add some garlic powder for flavor. I used beef broth instead of water and bouillon cubes and used more carrot and potatoes than called for (I used small red potatoes cut into half). I also used low sodium mushroom soup. I would like to add that different slow cookers work at different temperatures. I have two slow cookers and one cooks at a MUCH higher temperature on both low and high setting than the other. I would keep this in mind when setting up your cooking times. The lady that wrote this recipe has a cooker that will either be slower or faster than the one you have. As for the finished product.... Mine was outstanding! I let each person added salt and pepper to their own taste after it was cooked... It's much easier to control the amount of salt and pepper at the table than to guess how much it will take when you start cooking. After cooking on low for nine hours, my roast (2.8 pounds) was so tender I could cut it with a fork. Both my wife and I commented how tasty it turned out. This is an easy and very tasty recipe for pot roast and I recommend anyone likes a good pot roast!

Fried Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
I grew up in the South but I had never heard of fried dill pickles! I'm surprised my grandmother didn't know about these... I fixed them just like the recipe said but instead of deep frying, I put then in a cast iron skilled and fried then on all four sides until they were golden brown and crispy. I'll make these again....

Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Beer

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2005
There are a couple of things you need to know before making this.... First and foremost... It will not make 16 servings... not even close.. I only used one pound of kielbasa and a 22 oz. jar of sauerkraut and it made just enough for my wife and I. We ate the whole thing. Second, if you use two pounds of kielbasa, you will have a lot more meat than you need for the 20 oz. can of sauerkraut. I used a dark beer and it gave it a stroger taste than I wanted so next time, I'll use a light beer. Aside from that, the meal was great. I gave it five stars 'cause I like sauerkraut and kielbasa together.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
Personaly, I thought it was darn good but my wife, who is a pickey eater, didn't care for it that much. She said it was good, but I can tell she likes hers better. Anyway, I made it with only one change. I added some french onions. I would make again for myself but not for my wife...

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
I highly recommend this recipe for stuffing. I've made this many times and I've always used the oven to make, like the note on the bottom of the recipe suggests, and it comes out perfect. I did cover the dressing with tin foil because I thought it may dry out to much. The amount of sage is important.... don't guess but do follow the recipe. I've made it with to little sage and too much sage... The perfect amount for me is to follow the recipe exactly. I did reduce the recipe down for four servings and that seems to be just right for 2 people. This is good stuff!!!!

Halibut Divine

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
I gave this five stars and I don't really like fish. I made this because my wife loves halibut. I made this exactly like the recipe says and it was REALLY good. It tasted like a meal at a fancy restaurant.

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
This is certainly a five star recipe. I could have ate the whole thing myself. I did cut the recipe down for two people and it was excellent. I wouldn't make any changes to the recipe... it was perfect as is!
