Potato Soup IX

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
I didn't make any changes to the recipe except for the parsley.. I didn't have any on hand. The soup was good but it's not quite what I was looking for. Good but not great.

BBQ Cola Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
First, if the meat balls are to be covered in the sauce, you need to make twice the amount the recipe calls for. The only thing I did differently was to make twice the amount of sauce and I used about half a cup of BBQ sauce instead of the ketchup because I ran out of the ketchup. I don't know if it was the BBQ sauce or what but these didn't do it for me... If it was the BBQ sauce, I don't recomend subbing for the ketchup...

Candy Bar Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
I've made this twice now and the second time was a lot easier than the first... The first time, the peanut and caramel mixture was really difficult to spread. The second time, I found a way to make spreading the peanut mixture easy. After you put the peanuts into the caramel, the peanuts cool down the mixture and the cool mixture is hard to spread so I put the mixture back into the microwave and reheated it. Then I spooned the peanuts and caramel on top of the first layer of chocolate. It worked perfect, the hot caramel spread evenly and easily. I also used 34 caramel squares and only 1 3/4 cups of peanuts. This is one of the best home made candy recipes I've ran across and, yes, it does taste a lot like a snickers bar. I took some to work and shared with employees and several ask for the recipe. I'll make this one over and over....

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
This is the first time I've tried to make chicken cordon bleu and it turned out perfect. My wife was really impressed when she came home from work. I didn't have white wine, so I used cooking sherry and WOW... what a treat! The chicken and the gravy came out perfect. Next time I might try the white wine to see if it's as good as the sherry.

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
Some REALLY good advice... Steam for 10 minutes and check to see if it's done enough. I steamed for 30 minutes like the directions say, and it turned into mush. The next time I made this, I tried 10 minutes and it was perfect! I was out of Parmesan cheese so I covered with chedder cheese. When steamed properly, this is definately a very good veggy.

Poor Man's Hamburger Steaks

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
I scaled this down to one pound of 'burger and two cans of soup. Instead of making seperate patties, I covered the bottom of the dish with the hamburger, cooked 10 minutes @ 350 degrees, poured off the grease then cut the meat into six seperated sections before pouring the mushroom soup over the top then I put on the canned mushrooms. I made this just like the recipe called for with the exception of getting rid of a LOT of grease before puting the soup on. You can also make this with tater tots inbeded in the soup before putting it in the oven for 45 minutes. If you want to put the tater tots on, don't put the foil cover on. Very easy, very quick and very tasty.

Sausage Gravy III

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2004
My oh My... Country biscuits and gravy! My favorite alternative breakfast. I only used 1/2 pound of sausage,left everything else the same, then fixed some fried 'taters with onions. I left the breakfast table fuller than a hound dog at a red neck BBQ!

Sweet and Sour Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2004
I didn't have the dried minced onion so I subed a package of onion soup mix. Other than that, I didn't change a thing. I think this is one of the best recipes for meat loaf that I've made yet. I do think that I could have used about half of the white sugar and it would have been just as good. This is definately a five star meat loaf.

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
I didn't care for this as much as I thought I would. It had many different falvors but some of the flavor I didn't care for.

Patty's Mashed Turnips

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
I scaled this down for two people and made it for my wife who had never ate turnips before. I don't remember liking them much when I was growing up but I wanted to make an old fashioned country dinner for her. When Grandma used to make turnips, she would serve sliced. I don't remember them tasting so good when I was growing up but we both like these and we could have eaten more than I made! I'll definately be naking this again.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
It "ain't" quick but it sure was easy and it's worth the time to make! The meat came out very tender and tasted really, really good. I melted swiss cheese on the bread. I did add onions in the sauce at the begining. I don't know if that changed the flavor of the dip or not but I didn't care for the au jus as much as the regular kind I'm used to. I give five stars for the sandwich but only two for the dip. The leftovers were even better the next day. I cut up the meat and left it in the slow cooker with the sauce, put it in the refer and let it soak overnight. The flavor of the meat the next day was even better! Wow! Great French Dip sandwiches! Thanks for a great recipe Robyn!

Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2004
I made this with all the ingredients except the olives and bell peppers ('cause my wife doesn't care for them). I did make more of the dressing (about one and one half times more). I only had one sweet pickle left so I subed one dill pickle and a little sweet relish. I'm glad I made more dressing as it would have been to dry otherwise. The recipe as written makes a LOT(about a gallon) of salad, but it's so good it should be gone in a couple days! As far as the taste..... EXCELLENT!!! Definately five stars!

Roasted Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2004
I used regular potato soup and added fresh garlic. I also used the food processor slicer to make equally thin slices of potatoes. The thicker the slices the longer it takes to bake. The thicker slices of potato may not cook long enough so try to make them the same thickness. The thinly sliced potatoes baked perfectly in the seventy minutes the recipe called for. One other BIG tip is to lightly grease the baking dish for easy clean up! This is a quick, easy and TASTY recipe that even a rookie like myself can make!

Corn Pudding III

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2004
Tastes just like you think it would. The recipe was a bit like corn chowder instead of corn pudding. Mine didn't set up very well and was a bit runny but the next day the left overs had just the right amount of "body" to it. The taste was very good and both my wife and I had seconds. We don't care for bell peppers so I used a red onions instad. That added color and taste. I suggest you melt the butter in the microwave before trying to mix it with the corn in step two. I will use a little more flour next time to give it a little more body. The beaten egg whites are what makes this so special. Thanks for the recipe Erika!

Sausage Gravy I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2004
It seems almost everyone changes this recipe to fit their own taste and I'm no exception... I have made this exactly as written and also with a few changes. First I'll review this without changes. The first thing I noticed was that this does not make eight servings. If you are making this for biscuits and gravey, the recipe will makes only two servings. I make this for myself using half the recipe and gobble it up myself! Second, it is just a tad bland but can easily be fixed by starting with a sausage with more spice. The changes that I've made are to saute some onions with the sausage and added several dashes of warchestershire sause to give it a little more zip. I also add a little of Jonny's Seasoning Salt. When I have no bacon grease, I use butter instead. I grew up in the South and had biscuits and gravy 'most every morning so I consider myself an expert gravy taster and I give this one five stars. :-)

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2004
I recently retired and began cooking dinner for my wife when she gets home so I consider myself a bonified rookie. Every once in a while I make a recipe that is so good that I can hardly believe I made it. This is one of those treats. I made this exactly like the recipe stated except I left out the coconut only because I don't care much for the taste. I must say that I surprised myself on how good I can cook. The dip was also perfect for this recipe. However the cooking oil leaves a bad odor that spread throughout the house....
