Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2015
I used 6 strips of bacon, decreased the sugar to 2 tbsp, garnished with scallions and thinly sliced cucumbers. I followed everything else. The only things I would do differently next time is add more cucumber to heighten the flavors and decrease the amount of bacon to 4, as the recipe states. This is a keeper.

Amish Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 21, 2015
I've made adjustments to this recipe that are probably the reason why I'm rating it 5 stars. I added 1 TBSP garlic powder, 1 TBSP onion powder, 2 TBSP liquid smoke (hickory), 2 TBSP worchestshire sauce, 1 green pepper (equal amount to the onion). I only added 2 TBSP of brown sugar to the meet, and halved the amount of the sauce. Because the recipe's amount is way too much for me. The bacon was a really nice touch and candied the texture by baking it covered in sauce. If I would've made the recipe without my additions, it would've been way to sweet for me. My husband LOVED it and so did I. I will make my version again for sure! Oh, and I cooked it for an additional 15-18 minutes also.

Soul Smothered Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2015
It's true. You will need to add your own seasoning to this recipe. If you're a a truly beginning cook, don't rely on your chicken to be done in 30 minutes like the recipe says. I left my chicken on for 1 1/2 - 2 hours because I like my chicken to fall off the bone. Don't worry about the 3 cups of onions. This is an onion gravy and they will dissolve. The flavor was so, so, good! I also picked up the butter flavor in the gravy which I really enjoyed. I followed the recipe to the tee, and added additional seasonings to my taste. Make sure you like the flavor of the (soon to be) gravy before you add the chicken to it. That's the key. Great recipe.

Grandma B's Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2014
I followed the recipe, but definitely did my own thing in addition, Next time I'll use less beans because the next morning, the "soup" turned into a pot of beans thanks to the absorption. I found lamb neck bones and browned those with the miricroix (sp) and used 32oz of chicken stock and water. The bacon fat didn't stand a chance with the aggressive flavor of the lamb, so next time I'll just use the lamb because it was delicious with the beans.

Lemonade Pie III

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
the measurements are off. You actually need 12oz of the cool whip to give it the desired firmness without having to freeze it overnight. I also made my own crust and added the zest of one lemon.

Bread Pudding With Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
I was scared to use so many eggs! but this is my favorite bread pudding now - seriously the best I've ever made!! I followed the recipe completely - except for adding a teaspoon of cinnamon. It slid out of the baking dish like a flan - and even looked like a flan to our amazement. Next time, I'll add butter and vanilla extract to the caramel to give it a bit more creaminess. Outside of that, I wouldn't change a thing. Oh, except for adding more sugar to combat the egg flavor.

Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
This is a really good recipe. I didn't add tomatoes or crushed garlic - used garlic powder instead. I also used 5 large potatoes and sprinkles of the curry powder. I did add more cornstarch than the recipe calls for. If this is your first time trying this out - don't worry. it's a very flexible recipe and if you like sheperd's pie you'll know the flavor you're after so don't be afraid to add a little bit more or less of whatever works for your palette.

Easy Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I made this for the 2nd time today and I used 3 15oz cans of peaches. I poured the first 2 cans into a buttered dish and covered that layer with bread squares and drizzled the bread with melted butter and sprinkled cinnamon before covering the layer with the sugar mixture. I poured the 3rd can on top of that and repeated the same step. covered, baked it and it tastes even better than the original recipe. but don't get me wrong, i like the first recipe but I like more cobbler than what the first recipe recommends.
