Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
This is a great recipe. I sometimes add artichokes and/or garbanzo beans. Substituting shredded mozzarella for the asiago is also quick and delicious. I also like to use grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes.It is a meal all by itself, especially on warm summer nights.

Boston Iced Tea

As good as Red Lobster's--maybe better! I doubled the recipe for a family get together. Not a drop was left. Looking forward to making it again soon.

Cucumber Sandwiches II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2003
I've made these many times for all occasions and we never get tired of them. Very addicting! The only difference in this recipe and the one I use is adding a small pinch of dried dill weed (not seed)to the top of the cucumber slice. They are also very easy to make and very inexpensive.

Chocolate Hazelnut Mocha Cappuccino Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2002
This is a very easy dessert to make. I made it as the recipe calls the first time--very good. The second time I tried the white chocolate pudding instead of vanilla--even better. Next time I will also use 1/4 cup less milk to make it hold up better. I also used mini chocolate chips instead of the regular. I like the appearance better and it disperses the chocolate flavor throughout the whole pie better. Will make again.

Antipasto Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
This was one of the easiest and quickest salad recipes I have made. It is delicious as is, but I did use the sliced mild banana pepper rings instead of the pepperoncinis. They seem to be a bit milder for kids. The first time I used the called for dressing amount which was slightly to much, so make sure to add gradually to suit your taste. At times,I have substituted pepperoni for the hard salami, only because it is cheaper than a good quality hard salami. I do prefer the flavor of the hard salami, though. I also used the new mozzarella cheese crumbles instead of the shredded type. It didn't change the taste but did add a slightly new texture that I enjoyed. A very colorful and attractive salad. Thanks!

No Ordinary Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
I have made this meatloaf recipe several times and it always comes out perfect. It's the only recipe I will ever use. Leftovers are great for sandwiches...slice the meatloaf, put in on a baking sheet, top each slice with some marinara sauce and a slice of provolone. Heat in the oven until the meatloaf is warm and the cheese is melted. Serve on hoagie rolls. Yum! For those complaining about it being to greasy, it's the quality of the meat you are using..not the recipe. The only fat in the recipe comes from the meat. You shouldn't give the recipe a lesser rating because you fail to choose quality ingredients.

Spinach and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
This is an excellent recipe. I'm giving it 5 stars although I did do some substitutions. I know I would like the recipe as stated but I wasn't sure if the amount of tortellini called for was dried or fresh. I used the dried. I also used a 9 oz bag of fresh baby spinach. I mistakenly bought an 8 oz bottle of Italian dressing but found it to be more than enough. I think this was because I rinsed the tortellini with cold water to stop the cooking process and then refrigerated it before combining with the other ingredients. It kept the tortellini from absorbing so much of the dressing. I had a 6 oz can of sliced olives so I went ahead and added the extra. Got several requests for the recipe.

Poppy Seed Poultry Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2001
Whenever I go to Honeybaker's restaurant I order the poppyseed chicken casserole. It is wonderful. I'm glad to report that this recipe is even better. It was very easy to make and I loved the crunchy topping. I think it would be good with mushrooms and will try it next time.

Hamburger Hash

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2006
I have eaten this since I was a child. It is a dish that is associated with going to Grandma's house. The only difference is that she added a bit of green pepper to her recipe and also thickened it with a bit of corn starch. My mom makes it as the recipe states-cooked down but still with a bit of green pepper. Bread and butter is always a must have with this dish for our family. I like this especially in the winter.

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2003
This is an excellent recipe!I will use this one often. I continue to be mystified by people who rate recipes low yet didn't follow the directions. Is that the recipes fault or your fault.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Great recipe and easy to make. After it was cool, I added malted milk balls, candy corn, and candy pumpkins to make a fall snack mix I saw in a specialty store.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 12, 2003
Our family has made a recipe similar to this for years. We use Campbell's Beefy Mushroom for the soup and omit the flour. It is true comfort food at its best. An extra can of soup is used for extra gravy. It is a favorite with my children.

Sausage Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2001
We loved this recipe. It was quick, easy, and delicious. My son, usually finicky, enjoyed it immensely. I have searched for the perfect brunch casserole recipe that didn't result in soggy bread. This was perfect. I would like to try it with ham sometime. Thanks!

American Lasagna

Very good but a bit dry. I'll adjust the sauce ingredients next time to make it more moist. My family thought it was great.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2001
This recipe tasted very good although it seemed a bit mushy. Next time I am going to cut the sour cream in half and substitute a can of cream of chicken for one of the cream of potato. Loved the crunch of the cornflake topping. I have a similar recipe I have used before and am trying to perfect it to my family's taste. Quickly becoming one of my favorites. I especially like the convenience of mixing it up the night before. Thanks!
