Sour Cream Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2004
excellent and delicious!!!!!! the sour cream filling made the difference in this delicious pie. i'm not that great of a baker, so i used a store bought, refridgerated pie dough, which made assembly a snap. the second time i made this i used 6 medium sized apples(2 different varieties for added interest) and the pie was a lot biger and still awesome. great recipe.

Buttermilk Biscuits I

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
awesome recipe! i have been looking for the pefect biscuit recipe for a while now, something to appease my craving when i can't get to the local cracker barrel. IMPORTANT TIP----if you don't have self rising flour, add the additional 2 tsp baking powder and 2 tsp salt as recommended by some of the other reviewers. i have a feeling this is why some people are not getting the proper results. i did, however, omit the sugar. didn't feel that was necessary since i'm making it savory purposes. turned out great. also, maybe b/c i used a whole milk buttermilk, there was a slight bit more tang than i'm used to. i may just stick w/the plain old low fat buttermilk; i just happened to have the whole milk kind on hand and it is much richer than low fat, i'm always tweaking my recipes. also, for those who don't normally make their own biscuits from scratch biscuits-the dough is extremely sticky. don't be afraid. just dump about a cup of flour on your counter, turn out he dough, sprinkle more flour on top and knead about 10x. make sure you flour your rolling pin and you'll have a perfect, soft dough to cut into. i use a soup cn w/the ends cut out and it made about 12-13 biscuits. i brushed the tops w/butter. i may do that after baking next time instead of before. in my oven, i baked for about 18min. just keep an eye for browning. all in all, quick, easy and delicious. a keeper. thanks.

All Day Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
The only adjustments I made were to cook the mac halfway and cut down on cook time (2 hours on low is plenty), ingredients were not changed whatsoever and it was delicious. Since I had to make minimal adjustments to the recipe, I am giving it 5 stars because this really is a delicious recipe. I think it is important to mix the milk/egg mixture thoroughly before mixing with cheese and pasta, in order to avoid the "scrambled egg" syndrome. I won't call this a leave it alone recipe, gotta watch for burning since it is heavy on dairy and cheese. For me, the browned edges are the best part of mac and cheese, so I don't worry so much about the edges browning, just don't let it burn. Remember, this is not "creamy" mac and cheese.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
Well, I can't say that I got to taste it since the entire cake was eaten at church and none made it home. Judging by what my friends told me, it's fantastic and I have requests for the recipe. Patience, grasshopper, patience. This WILL work. Yes, preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Trust me, IT WORKS! You may have to bake longer than hour. In my oven, a total of 1 hour and 25 minutes. Start checking with a toothpick at the hour mark, if you need more time, check in 5-10 minute increments. It looks like the cake will never cook but then voila, it's done. I don't know if anyone else did it, but I beat the frosting on high speed for a few extra minutes to make it extra fluffy. Plus, since I don;t like my sweets too sweet, I cut back on the sugar in the cake by 1/4 cup and in the frosting by 1/2 cup.

Calico Squash Casserole

Looks like the zucchini bake that my MIL made for our annual family Pre-Christmas party, minus the onions. It was fantastic! I will definitely be making this myself for the family. Delish!

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
yum yum. this is very easy and extremely tasty. i do not use alcohal w/my cooking so i just subbed extra broth. i may just cut down on taht extra liquid next time, the rice was a tad on the wet side when the dish was ready. but that had no impact on the flavor. this was sooooo delicious! i could'nt find saffron @my store so i used some tumeric for color. hopefully i can find saffron in the near future so i know what that adds. a big hit w/the family and at work. i referred my co-workers to this recipe. it's so good. thanks.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
this is pretty much the only mac and cheese i make. the only change i have made is to use 1 tsp of seasoned salt in lieu of the pepper and mustard powder. sometimes i used crushed buttery crakers mix instead of bread crumbs and mix in a little shredded cheddar for a nice crunchy top. i love creamy baked mac and cheese and this is creamy and cheesy. it also works well for stove top mac and cheese, just double the macaroni, cook it until it's just tender and add to the cheese sauce. also, it reheats very well. my 7 year old won't touch mac and cheese, unless it's this stuff. i just have to tell him it's "mommy's mac and cheese". i get many requests from my family to make this. i've made it so many times, the recipe is memorized. better than the box, by far. YUM-YUM!

Albondigas Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
Excellent!!! Easy, flavorfull and satisfying. Searching for salsa verde is worth the trouble, my store carried only 1 brand. i took the advice of other reviewers and used 1 full cup of rice, but next time i'll cut the salsa down because my husband is not a big fan of spicy foods. my picky 15 year old stepson and i each had 2 large bowls, it was absolutely delicious. a definate keeper.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
Delicious!!! I made a slightly different version of this dip and then made this one. The marinated artichokes are the key! This dip has so much flavor. This is one of my stand by dishes for get-togethers, always popular.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I'm on the fence on this one. I used my normal smoked ham butt and ended up with ham pot roast. It was very juicy and ended up with incredible dark brown ham stock for yummy ham gravy. I will play around with the timing and type of ham. I'm guessing that I didn't need the entire 8 hours this time around but had no choice since I had morning church service and work afterwards. Like I said, I will play around with this in the future and update. I am giving a high 4 star review since this is a convenient cooking method and the ham was nice and juicy.

Pork and Green Chile Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
I made this for a pot luck and it was a big hit. I did not change a single ingredient. The one and only adjustment I made was to put the dish in a crock pot, layer the cheese on top and allowed the cheese to melt while the crock pot was on the keep warm setting for an hour. Don't be afraid of the cream of chicken soup and the seasoning was perfect.

Hungarian Noodle Side Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Yes, you can make this in the crock pot without the dish becoming gummy. First off, cook the egg noodles only halfway. I don't suggest you cook in the crock pot for the 3-4 hours. I did 2 hours on high, then you can turn down to "keep warm". I did 2 hours on high and about an hour on low, which almost overdid the dish. I added 1.5 lbs cooked ground turkey and a can of mushroom pieces. I didn't have onion or poppy seed on hand. Even my picky eater ate it up. 4 stars based on the original recipe which would have been overcooked if followed to a tee.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Very dense and moist coffee cake. Maybe a little too moist for my taste (and my younger son's taste). I took it to church for the snack after Sunday school and the entire cake disappeared. So, it is a winner. 4 stars since I did reduce the sugar to 1 cup and it was plenty sweet. I also made double the filling/topping, but did not need use all of it so I would recommend sticking to the recipe in that regard.

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Yummy! I didn't have allspice and reduced the clove and nutmeg by half and it turned out great.. Very tasty and easy. The kitchen smells great and the muffins are terrific. Canned pumpkin works perfectly. When I made this, i ended up with 18 muffins.

Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
simple, economical and tasty. honestly, my dad used to force this stuff on me when i was a kid. for some odd reason, i had a major craving for good old creamed chipped beef on toast one day and this looked easy enough. the only i adjusted was to use lots of black pepper. the whole family loved it, including my 7 and 8 year old sons! they actually request that i make this. and i tell you, on a cold winter's day, very comforting. not to mention, budget friendly. my store doesn't carry jarred dried beef, but buddig's sliced beef works just as well (and is probably less salty). thanks so much.
