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....

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2004
Being a rookie cook and non Italian also, I have no idea what ziti pasta looks like and I couldn't find it in the pasta section of the supermarket. I improvised and substituted the pasta that looks like little bow ties. Other than that, I made the recipe exactly as written. I did, however, put a cookie sheet under the 9 x 11 dish just in case it boiled over. As far as the taste... it was outstanding! This is definately a five star recipe. My wife kept saying how great it tasted! Next time (and there will be a next time) I will find the ziti pasta and see which is best for this dish. It would be hard to beat the little bow ties! I might add that the warmed up leftovers were just as good! It taste a little like lazagna... only better! I would note that this recipe does make a LOT of food.

Stuffed Kielbasa

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
I made this recipe for a midnight snack... actually it was 2 o'clock in the morning when I woke up hungry. It actually tasted pretty good and I ate two servings. The only down side to this recipe is that it is a "heavy" meal. I didn't feel like eating again until about 5 o'clock in the afternoon!

Sausage Gravy II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2004
I almost went out for breakfast this morning, but before I did I checked to see if there was any breakfast recipes that I would rather try. I saw this one with the onions and thought it sounded better than going out for breakfast. I'm glad I did because this really hit the spot. I didn't have sausage in the frig but I did have some kielbasa.If you are a fan of biscuits and gravy, I recomend giving this one a try... It's a quick, easy and VERY tasty breakfast. It's my new favorite gravy recipe! However, this recipe, as written, says it will serve four people... It is perhaps enough for two. I ate it all myself!

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
I don't care that much for chicken so I'm always looking for different ways to fix it. This is one of the best ways I've found yet! I really liked the egg dipped batter and the twangy taste that the vinegar and soy sause gave it. I'll make this one again!I did use half as much sugar (1/2)cup and it was still plenty sweet. I also used a mixture of brown sugar and white sugar. I used tin foil to line the pan for easy cleanup.

Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
This recipe was especially easy to make and tasted great! My wife and I ate half the pie at one sitting!! I did make one change and used someones suggestion to use 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I thought the pie was a little too sweet so next time I will use about 1/2 as much sugar and see how that tastes. Thanks Sonja for a terrific recipe!

This is by far the best cake recipe that I have ever made. I've made this many times for friends and each time everyone wants the recipe. It's fairly easy to make and sooooo verrrry good. WOW! Hint! If your can of apricots doesn't have enough apricots in it... just cut a couple in half... If you really want to treat yourself and your family, you need to try this!!!! Five stars plus!

Cabbage Rolls III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2004
This one just didn't do it for me. They were soggy and taste like hamburger that had been cooked in boiling water.

Hungry Man's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2004
I made this recipe exactly as written then added two slices of American cheese when done. I love potatoes and I'm always looking of new ways to fix them. This is nothing fancy but it sure is a good tastey meal. Thanks Adaba for the treat!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
Very tasty, but maybe a little too sweet.. I think I could have used a little less sugar and they would have been just as good. I made exactly as written. Be sure to let then cool until they are room tempature before you touch them. If you don't, they will fall apart when you try to pick them up. I made the cookies a little larger than called for so I only had 36 cookies.

Aunt Cora's World's Greatest Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2004
These cookies were great. I followed the recipe exactly since it was my first attempt at making cookies! I would give the cookies five stars for taste but my cookies fell apart when I tried to pick them up so I only gave four stars. Very soft and full of peanut and chocolate flavors. Next time I would put a little less sugar. Great cookies.
