Day-After-Thanksgiving Turkey Carcass Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This was such an easy soup to make and with a bit of seasoning (salt & pepper to taste), it was really good! I used a bag of baby carrots, no peas, and 3/4 bag of egg noodles instead of rice---because that's what I had. Also, the stuffing I make has corn in it so that added an extra veggie. As suggested, I added gravy to the pot and, after covering the 13 lb. carcass with a broth/water combo, I'd say the yield was close to 5 quarts.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I used stew meat, minced garlic, celery and onion....browned the meat and, after adding diced tomatoes I simmered on low heat on top of the stove for about 2-3 hours. Served on top of buttered egg noodles. All very simple --- all very excellent!

Easy Lasagna II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Every summer we have many "batches" of tomatoes with which I immediately make a thick and meaty sauce. Then I freeze it in quart-sized Ziploc bags for future reference. I thawed 2 bags of the meat sauce and made up a big lasagna pan basically following this recipe's protocol and I was amazed at how you could use plain old lasagna noodles without cooking them first. It was definitely an easier process ----- and with homemade spaghetti sauce, it was top-notch! With about 40-plus quarts in my freezer, I'll definitely do this again!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
I've used this recipe for the past 2 years to feed about 85 people at our church supper and it really brings RAVE reviews! People who usually don't like corned beef like this ---- and those that do like corned beef say it's the best they've ever eaten. I think that tightly sealing it in the oven enhances the flavor. (Boiling on top of the stove method tends to "wash" out the flavor!)

Peanut Butter Balls III

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
I've made these for years with slightly different proportions: 2 cups crunchy peanut butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 cups rice krispies and 1 1/2 cups softened margarine. I, too, melt the choc. chips in the microwave with shortening. I went to a Party City and bought a plastic dipping spoon in the candy-making department....and it makes dipping the balls a MUCH easier process! Even when I double the recipe, every morsel I place them on pretty plates or in pretty candy dishes and give them as Christmas gifts to very special friends!

Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
This meatloaf was delicious! I had added chopped onion and minced garlic, salt & pepper to the meat......then doubled the recipe for the tasty sauce to be sure to have enough for mashed or baked potatoes to absorb. We loved it and will make it again! This recipe as written would not feed 8 people who like meatloaf!

Delicious Apple Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
I've always used regular white sugar when making applesauce in the this was a pleasant surprise in using the brown sugar. I, too, would decrease the amount of cinnamon in the future ---- but overall this was a very easy and tasty recipe.

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2005
THE SWEET CREAMY TASTE was such a nice surprise when guests had their first mouthful of this salad! I did the lazy version---used a bag of frozen vegetables that included broccoli, red sweet peppers, sugar pod peas, etc. Then, I diced up some red onion and added shredded carrots. So simple ---but so good! I can't wait to bring it to another "shared dish" event so I can graciously accept all the compliments!
