Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Awesome!! Scaled the recipe down, using only 2 potatoes, but still made plenty. You really need a large pan for this so you can spread the poatoes out so they cook evenly. Cooked in about 40 minutes. Used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. Used another reviewer's suggestion and stirred the sugar into the melted butter before I added the potatoes; resulted in a great sauce. And don't forget the vanilla; it makes the dish pop.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This is soooo good! Now I have to go out and buy a crockpot; I borrowed my neighbor's to make this both times. I followed other reviews and used a 3 lb roast along with low sodium beef broth. The roast fell apart beautifully at 4 hours in the crockpot. The first time I made it I used sweet baby rays, and it was good. However, we are partial to nc bbq (vinegar based sauce) and sweet baby rays just didn't fit the bill. The second time I used bone suckin sauce, and it turned out fantastic. I will be making this often.

Cut-Out Cookies in a Flower Pot

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Easy and delicious. Made half the recipe and still had tons of cookies. The dough was very easy to work and the cookies held their shape. To make rolling out easier, I found it best to let the dough rest overnight in the fridge and then roll out a bit at a time.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
This recipe is awesome! I seasoned the meat with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder (no flour) before browning. I used "better than bouillon" instead of granules. I let it simmer two hours before I added the potatoes. Waited another 30 minutes before adding the carrots and celery; I like them crispier, not soft. I doubled the cornstarch but it was still brothy like soup, which is just fine with me. My almost vegetarian daughter had a bowl of broth, carrots and celery and loved it. The real test will be my hubby; he does not like soups or stews as a rule. (He will be trying it tomorrow for lunch.) This is now in my rotation of comfort food. Perfect for these 15 degree days.UPDATE: finally figured out how to thicken the stew. mixed together 2 to 1 ratio of cornstarch to water and added when the stew was finished. Stew thickened up in less than 5 minutes.

Macaroni and Cheese V

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
I had such high hopes for this recipe based upon other reviews. However, my entire family thought this mac and cheese was off. I am not a novice cook and I followed the recipe. We found it bland and quite dull, even using a high quality extra sharp cheese.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
This is the best stroganoff recipe I have ever made. I followed other reviewers' advice and marinated the meat in red wine 2 hours before cooking. I browned the meat in a butter/olive oil mixture and removed the meat from the pan. I cooked the onions with some fresh garlic, then added the flour to coat the mixture. I blended in beef broth and the sauce was very thick. I added a touch extra of beef broth instead of wine. I added the meat back in and simmered for a little bit. I used sirloin steak this time. Next time, I will simmer for awhile longer to make the meat more tender.

Berry Smoothie

My daughter has been after me to make a smoothie without yogurt. I made this recipe with a berry medley and my daughter loves it!!! She is a very picky 7 yr old and I'm thrilled to have something new in her rotation.

Shredded Beef for Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
There was very little flavor and two cans of sauce made too much liquid.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
My husband gives this a 5, I give it a 4. Easy and yummy recipe. I prefer a saucier pot pie, hence my four stars. My husband, who doesn't like pot pie, gobbled it up and wants me to make it again. For the first time in my life, I used a premade pie crust. Never again. The flavor and flakiness of a real pie crust outshines the fake one and will add dimension to the recipe.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
This recipe received an "excellent" from my husband! It has taken 15 years and many, many lasagna recipes before he gave this recipe his seal of approval!!! I followed other reviews and made this the day before I cooked it. It really didn't take long to prepare. As the sauce (thick and hearty) simmered, I did other things. I soaked the noodles and assembled. I credit some of the success of this dish with the ingredients. I went to Whole Foods for the sausage (they make their own), hamburger, ricotta (Calabro) and fresh mozarella. I used 1/2 the sugar since the sausage and tomatoes (used organic fire roasted) were sweet enough. I can't wait until we have company and I can make it again. I just wish my children would eat it. My vegetarian daughter won't because it has meat and my carnivore son won't because it has cheese :-)

Airport Bob's Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
I finally made this dish and I'm so glad I did. I steamed frozen beans in the microwave. I spooned the sauce into the beans until I had the flavor I wanted. I tossed the extra sauce. My beans were not greasy bc I wiped the pan after I drained the bacon grease.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
This is way better than any store bought mix. I use white wine vinegar and either olive or canola oil. I've tried it with balsamic vinegar, but it wasn't as good.
