Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
THIS is the way I've had potato pancakes since I was a kid. In fact, I'd never had the uncooked shredded kind until I was an adult. I guess it was thanks to Mom's frugality. The way these are put together is a little thick for my taste. You can mix the cheese right in if you want and make them the thickness of regular pancakes. I like the fact that they have a higher amount of crispiness that way. I also like to mince up some onion into mine.

Root Beer Float Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I made cupcakes with this recipe and took it to a Father's Day cookout. After reading the reviews, I decided to add the rootbeer concentrate (all I could find at the store. Is it the same as extract?)to the batter. The long mixing time made these light and airy. I also made the Cool Whip/vanilla pudding frosting and added a little rootbeer concentrate to that too. Crushed rootbeer barrels on top were great, but don't add them too early before serving because they kind of melt in the topping. I was told that I had to make these again.

Chile Jam

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This turned out better than I expected it to, although I think "jam" might be a little misleading because it doesn't congeal. It wasn't hot at all, but did have a nice flavor. I was thinking that if I made it again, I'd add a little less sugar and have it on hot dogs. I would also probably pulse it in a food processor to cut it a little finer than I did. This made a little over a pint for me. I used four Roma tomatoes that I seeded. It doesn't say to do that in the recipe, but I just figured you should.

Turkish Fish Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
I was surprised at how much I liked this. I only added 1 t. of pepper flakes which made the heat tolerable. I didn't have stewed tomatoes, so I just used diced and they were fine. Also, I had a bag of pollock in my freezer and it was really good, so I figured I saved myself about five dollars on this dish. I would probably halve the amount of couscous next time.

Runzas II (Bierocks)

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
The recipe I got from a college roommate for this called them Fleischbrooks. I've always loved them. I didn't put in MSG, though. I usually put in some cumin and I like that taste. When they come out of the oven, I like to cut open the top and sprinkle in the cheese and top with some sour cream. One thing, though--The bread dough should probably be brought up to room temperature. I thawed mine in the refrigerator and it was impossible to roll out the dough until had warmed up. I like the idea of spreading butter on the finished product. Maybe some garlic powder or some other seasoning in the melted butter might be tasty too

Summertime Tuna Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
My mother used to make a salad similar to this and I've been making it my entire adult life. Instead of the broccoli and carrots I add seeded chopped tomatoes. Also, I think it's important to seed the cucumbers. If you don't do this, leftovers could get really runny. Also, in reading the other reviews, I'm pretty sure the recipe was supposed to say 2 cups of uncooked pasta. It looks like one reviewer thought that was how much cooked pasta should be used.

Seven Layer Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2004
This was pretty good. I agree that it was better the next day because the flavors really had a chance to blend. I only used 1 can of peas and that seemed like plenty. I wonder how it would be to substitute green beans or something like that to make it less starchy. I also was toying with the idea of using Cream of mushroom soup and milk instead of the tomato soup and water. I just might try it next time.

Easy Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
This was so easy and tasted very good. Due to time issues, I had to let this marinate for about 24 hours. I'm glad I did, as I think it drew out more moisture. I think the only thing I would do differently was to add a little bit more liquid smoke. This was good right out of the oven as well as cold.

Maple Syrup Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
I'm thinking that this should be called Maple Syrup BREAD Pudding so that everyone will stop being confused.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
I was excited to see this recipe. In fact, in looking over the reviews, I bought a Stir Crazy popcorn popper just for this reason. I also used butter flavored oil. My first batch turned out a little brown, but the next time around I waited until the kernels were just about ready to pop before I poured the sugar over them. Turned out fantastic!

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
This was nice and creamy. I shouldn't have added the salt, however, because with the ham and soup, it was too salty for me. Next time, I will wait until it's cooked to see if it needs any. Otherwise, It was very, very good.

Hungarian Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2005
I agree that the cooking time is way too long. I browned the pork chops with some onion which was good and only cooked it covered about 30 minutes. And, even though I cooked this on very low heat, the sour cream sauce looked like it was separating. I wasn't that crazy about the taste so I don't think I would make this again, but if I did, I would put the sour cream in right before serving.

Seven Layer Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
This was just okay. Actually had a rather gloppy consistancy, but it tasted alright. I probably wouldn't make it again, though.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
We made two flavors of these for Christmas this year: lemon cake with lemon frosting and white cake with white frosting with almond extract. We had a small scoop and made approximately the amount specified in the recipe, however I felt that they were much too large. I would have preferred something that only took about two bites instead of the five or six that these had. I liked them well enough and they were easy to dip once they were refrigerated or frozen but if I make these again in the future, I will DEFINITELY be using a smaller scoop.

Tomato Bacon Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
I didn't like the taste of this all that well. The only things I did differently were to chop up my tomatoes instead of slice them. I also put them in a strainer while the piecrust baked/cooled. Due to this and the baking, the tomato taste was really concentrated which meant it was pretty acidic. I wonder if I would like it with a couple of teaspoons of sugar or a thick white sauce thrown in. I do have to say that it was quite pretty, though

Vegetable Pizza II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This is a recipe I had tried before but couldn't find, so I was glad it was on this site. Along with some of the standard vegetables, I added chopped water chestnuts for the crunch and sliced black olives for the contrast. I sprinkled some shredded cheddar over the whole thing. I had a lot of cream cheese mixture left over too, but I decided to use that as a dip for another day. We had it for a small New Year's Eve get together and the hostess informed me that I was not going to get to take any of it home. Her husband just loved it.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
I had originally intended to drizzle white chocolate over these, but they were VERY sweet. I chickened out and used vanilla instead of brandy but it still had a great flavor.

Chili Dog Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2005
I tried this twice--the first time with chili beans and the second time with chili hot dog sauce. Both times I made a half batch but used a whole can of the chili based upon previous reviews. I really disliked it the first time with the beans because I didn't like the texture of the beans with the mushy bread. The second time I realized that I just didn't like the taste of this all that much. I definitely won't be trying it a third time.

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2004
I made these yesterday and spent the day eating the ENTIRE THING. They were great! I added a few crushed red pepper flakes to give them a little kick. I will DEFINITELY be making these again

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I used a fully cooked ham for this. I mixed all the glaze ingredients with a little water to make a nice paste and slathered a little over half of it on the ham. I put about a cup and a half of water in the bottom of the pan, covered the pan with foil and put it in a 350 degree oven for one and a half hours, basting the ham twice. After that time, I took the foil off and spread the last of the glaze mix on the ham and cooked the whole thing for another half hour. It tasted great. The flavors weren't over the top. Instead, they complimented the taste of the ham. I know I'll definitely be making this again.
